Niklas Bayer-Eynck was allowed to compete again in "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? – The Big Gambler Special" – the big success was not there.

Candidate Niklas Bayer-Eynck (31) made another appearance on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? – The Great Gambling Special". After the Dortmund-based man had dropped from 125.00 euros to 1,000 euros on Monday (January 11, 2021) because of an unclear question about the "bird wedding", he got a second chance on Friday evening (February 5) – which he could not fully use.

When asked who asked for 32,000 euros in spring 2020 who exceeded the 100,000 mark for the first time, the answers "FC Bayern Munich, Alliance 90 / The Greens, German Alpine Association and IG Metall" were available. After the public joker had given 50 percent for the "German Alpine Club", Bayer-Eynck felt his assumption was confirmed and decided on the answer C. Günther Jauch (64) then had to disappoint the candidate. The German Alpine Association has over a million members, "Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen" would have been correct. Thus Bayer-Eynck landed again only at 1,000 euros.

Prize sums of the other gamer candidates

Then Lutz Gerling played it safe in "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? – The Great Gambling Special – The 2nd Chance" and got out with 64,000 euros. He could not answer with public and telephone jokers for whom ARSP and FES seminars are intended (driving schools and not tax advisors, yoga teachers or choral clubs). Christoph Lang took home 250,000 euros. When asked which of the characters Peanuts, Barbie, Old Shatterhand and Bob the Builder would come from Willows, a fictional town in Wisconsin (Barbie would have been the correct answer), he left unanswered. Julia Dettmer earned 125,000 euros. In the end, she didn't know that the double-handle slide was part of camping tents.

Lisa Bross fell to 1,000 euros with a football question. Due to the postponement of the European Football Championship, it is not France but Portugal that is the European champion for a year longer. André Schur, on the other hand, secured 64,000 euros, he did not associate the names of Klaus Teuber, Uwe Rosenberg or Wolfgang Kramer with board games.
