“Wheel of Fortune” new edition with Sonya Kraus: Maren Gilzer angry!

Maren Gilzer (62) hands out properly! German television is currently being overwhelmed by a retro wave: for example, the TV classics “7 days, 7 heads” or “The price is hot” make their comeback on the screen.

But in the new edition, Sonya Kraus (49) will act as the letter fairy instead of her – and that fits Maren even not!

“I am very disappointed that we, the old team, are no longer part of the comeback of the show”related them opposite Bild Position. With Sonyawhich she replaced on the show in 1998, the program was not as successful as with Maren† “If Sonya became my successor at the time, the show was already running on Kabel 1 and hadn’t had the good ratings that we had on Sat.1 for a long time. had”, she could not resist a tip against her colleague. The 62-year-old wished her all the best – but one had to be able to say that openly.
