This is what viewers have been waiting for!

All information about the show on November 25, 2023 and the guests can be found here in a broad overview.
This is the meaning of “Wetten, dass…?”.
“Wetten, dass..?” is one of the best-known and longest-running television programs in the German-speaking area. The show has been around for several decades and was first broadcast in 1981.
Candidates present their skills live in front of an audience in a large hall. Celebrity guests then bet on unusual abilities. Does the betting proposal work or not? If the celebrity is wrong, he usually faces an unpleasant task.
The skills are often unusual, funny, or spectacular. In 1981, for example, bodybuilder Hans Oßner blew up a hot water bottle and caused it to explode. In the same year, Rudolf Künzler and his team parked an 8.8-ton truck on four beer glasses.
It is not yet known what the bets will be on this year’s show.
When does “Bet, that…?” air?
The show ran for nearly 34 years after its premiere in 1981 and was discontinued in 2014. Seven years later, in November 2021, the hit format returned for an annual edition with longtime host Thomas Gottschalk.
Viewers will be able to watch the show on free TV on November 25 at 8.15pm on ZDF.
After the November 2023 edition, Gottschalk will say goodbye to the show again, this time for the last time. It is not yet clear what the future of the show will be and whether it will continue.
The moderation of “Wetten,dass..?”
