It’s every participant’s nightmare “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” You put it all on one card, take the risk – then you hit the solace price of € 500. This is exactly what happened to the candidate Dominic Lutzky in yesterday’s episode.
The Bishop was able to score points with him in a previous episode. When candidate Ronald Tinhulti won the million in Summer 2020, Lutzky was on the selection round. As a roofer builder, he knew the answer to the last question about how many panels are in the euro pallet (answer: 11), of course, and he proved this knowledge at that time.
The issue of plants caused Lutzke to stumble
Yesterday, North Rhine-Westphalia was finally able to take a seat opposite the mediator Günter Gauch (64) – unfortunately, he was unable to score. The bishop was already considering asking 4,000 euros. “In which of these plants do the flowers usually appear in this country at the end of winter, long before the leaves fall?” Gauch asked him. Possible answers: “a: apple tree, b: winter linden, c: hazelnut tree, and d: sycamore.”
Lutzke had absolutely no idea about plants, which is why he bet on the general joker. This enabled him to pose the question to previous participants, “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” Only two of them thought they knew the answer. Among them was cult candidate Ellen Marquart (68). She caused a stir in 2019 when she appeared on the show because she refused to reveal the name of her cat named Günther Jauch. “I only choose her if she reveals her cat’s name,” said Lutzky jokingly, and chose candidate René Fraunkrone, who is also a special friend.
The General Joker was useless
That was the wrong decision. Because Frauenkorn’s answer “B: Winter linden tree” was disqualified shortly thereafter when a bishop operator used a 50:50 clown to be on the safe side. “they are friends!” Gauch mocked. The mediator was sure that Marquart would become Lutzky’s “heroine”.
Instead of being satisfied with the amount he actually received, the construction worker did his best. “500 euros or not – I’ll take the apple tree,” Lutzky advised. It was a mistake. Because Marquart revealed the correct answer: “It’s a hazelnut tree. Allergy sufferers know that.” The quirky candidate would have become Lutzke’s champion. Instead, Lutzke had to be content with a consolation prize of 500 euros.
The Bishop took turns turning the Joker softly. “It was a wrong decision, but I made it. I was happy to be here.” After the RTL broadcast, Lutzky said, “It was so much fun.”
