Storyline

Each show has several celebrities invited who have to bet on different contestant(s) achieving his/her/their goal of performing a stunt. If the celebrities fail to anticipate whether their stunt will succeed or not, they have to meet their stake. Usually one stunt takes place outside the studio. At the end of the show, the best stunt is being voted for by the audience. There is also an audience bet, a stunt which the audience does choose from a preselection, which is not prepared and must be organized by the host city within the time the show is running. If the stunt succeeds, the show's host has to meet his stake. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Great show, great Gottschalk
22 March 2004 | by David-TripplerSee all my reviews

This is the biggest european TV show and that´s right because Thomas Gottschalk is a great showmaster and in every show there are funny stunts. But the best thing surely are the guests, international top stars like Elijah Wood or all types of musicians are in the show but also famous german people so everyone has got someone to see.

I´m a little bit sad that the show doesn´t come so often but thats no problem because if "Wetten dass...?" is coming, it takes at least half an hour more than planned!

All in all, it is a great an interesting show (i gave 9 stars) you should have seen at least once if you can speak german!
