Candidate Christine Schorer brought up this question in “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” on Monday evening in distress – and the viewers in front of the TV in the palm of their hand. “Where there is really a lot going on, there is literally going on – or also the …?”, Günther Jauch wanted to know from the mental coach from Thannhausen for 200 euros. There were four first names to choose from: Elli, Luzi, Leni and Gerdi. But what seems so simple, made the candidate from Bavaria worry lines grow.
“I don’t even check that,” said Schorer, who was visibly insecure, thinking back and forth, but didn’t know what to do with the phrase. Apparently she had never heard of it – and suddenly had a flash of inspiration. “Leni” comes to mind most of all, according to the mentor, who professionally advertises “more visibility, self-love and moneyflow”. Jauch then no longer held it in place, he shouted “Leni! Leni!” And incited the studio audience, which was now chosen as the joker.

The fact that it was not one hundred percent who voted for the answer “Luzi” in the end was due to the fact that Jauch had instigated the “Leni” revolt. The moderator personally went to the man who had voted for the answer “C” – and asked in amazement what had ridden him. “I just wanted to be on TV,” he stammered, got a few laughs and Jauch applauded it with the words: “good idea”.
Twitter blasphemes: “Why didn’t the man stop you?”
However, Christine Schorer did not collect too many good moments in the course of the show. Again and again she despaired of the simplest questions. Günther Jauch then blasphemed her husband, who was a guest in the audience and who, given his posture, looked as if he would like to sink into the floor in shame. When the mental coach did not know what to do next, Jauch gave an answer about the “Leni suspicion” – and referred to the embarrassing 200 euro moment. In the end, the 64-year-old summed up her appearance with the words: “Confident appearance with complete ignorance”.
The audience, however, ran storm. At the latest when Schorer was introduced by Jauch as “dice whisperer” because she supposedly could always predict which number would come out of the throw, all dams broke. “Why didn’t the man stop you from applying?” Wrote one user and another called the show with her a “freak special”.
The fact that Christine Schorer works as a mental coach was not well received by all viewers. In fact, it was not without a certain irony that the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” Candidate found the following text about her job in a Facebook group: “I’m Christine Schorer and a real expert on the subject of visibility. I’ve been in front of the camera on TV several times and advertising, was allowed to go through deepest fears, embarrass me super and emerge stronger from it. “
At the same time it advertises “Moneyflow” there and guarantees how one can earn “more money”. At the end of the RTL quiz show, despite all the embarrassment, she was also able to enjoy a cash injection: Christine Schorer went home with 16,000 euros – Lutzi there, Leni there.
