Money worries as a millionaire winner? Hardly imaginable! A report now shows how the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” Clearing went on last year.
“Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” would be inconceivable without Günther Jauch! In the video below we show you how the Quizmaster has changed since the first episode.

Filmmaker Broka Herrmann accompanied Schnoor over the past year. He told the story in the “37 °” report “Suddenly rich – life with profit”, which ZDF broadcast on Tuesday evening and which is also available in the ZDFmediathek. Despite the incredible profit, not much has changed at Schnoor:
The trained pastry chef continues to work in the catering trade and conjures up homemade cakes for customers in his own café. He rarely leaves his district in Hanover. Schnoor only increased the salaries of his employees and bought a new apartment. One might think that he no longer needs to worry about money. Or?
Candidate writes history! Günther Jauch gives her an answer
Memorable moment in “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”: A candidate makes fun of the questions several times. In the end, Günther Jauch gives her an answer.
Worries rob you of “who’s going to be a millionaire?” Winners
The re have also been moments in recent years that have not been easy, and whether I would have survived them without these reserves in the background … I don’t know,” said the 59-year-old, describing his situation in the in-depth and honest report.
But as much as a million is – at some point this sum will also be used up. “Yeah, where has the money gone?” He asked. Part of the profit went into his wife’s business, said the passionate confectioner, and he also picked up a few banknotes to spruce up his café: new windows, new toilets, new appliances. “Yes, and when you buy all of this, most of it will already be gone,” Schnoor stated. Only then came an unexpected challenge that hit many cafés suddenly: the corona pandemic.
Schnoor – like many other restaurateurs – had to close his café while the bills continued to trickle in. “This problem is not getting any smaller just because half the world is affected by the same problem,” he said.
The restaurateur knows that his situation is “of course a little better”. “But at night, when you can’t sleep, that doesn’t help much,” he said. Schnoor was able to reopen his café in spring and summer 2020, but the increasing number of infections deprived him of sleep again.
The n the million wouldn’t be gone, not that, but of course I would have to think about it: What will you live on in the near future?”
Has Günther Jauch unsettled a candidate? “I don’t put the shoe on”
Three weeks ago, RTL had to admit that it might have kicked a WWM candidate too early out of the running for the million. Now Niklas Bayer-Eynck gets a second chance – and eight other spectacularly failed players can try their luck again.
The show itself doesn’t benefit from the concept of pity.
That’s how it goes, millionaire winner Leon Windscheid
It is a question that concerns many other citizens besides him, including another “Jauch-Millionär”: Leon Windscheid won the 2015 “Wer wird Millionär?” answer the last question correctly. This was followed by a career in the media: the psychologist was a guest in several programs, wrote books, performed with a stage program and produced two podcasts, one of them together with the comedian Atze Schröder. “Without this money at the time, I would never have said I was going this way,” said the 32-year-old entrepreneur.
The win helped him gain a foothold in the uncertain media industry. “I would never have dared to do that. Never.”
Nonetheless, he also appears modest in the report: Windscheid continues to drive his old car, which he bought for 800 euros. His party boat “MS Günter”, which he named after the WWM presenter Günther Jauch, is a reminder of the million he won. He travels on the Ems Canal three times a day.
The entrepreneur now employs 40 people, and the boat is used for breakfast trips, wedding celebrations and cultural events. Actually a gold mine – if it weren’t for the corona pandemic.
Günther Jauch “fell asleep” with her: Candidate Julia explains the funny situation
At “Wer wird Millionär” candidate Julia Dettmer got her second chance. In an interview, she reveals how she explains Günther Jauch’s “sleeping” in the meantime and what she intends to do with her winnings.
“Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” – Winner: “We don’t earn a cent and keep spending”
The boat is now still. Windscheid and his team can use the time to repair the vehicle. But is that really any consolation for the entrepreneur? “We don’t earn a cent and pass it on. That is just a catastrophe for any company. Every month we lack sales by six figures,” admitted Windscheid. If business didn’t start up again soon, then “something big would have broken for us,” the 32-year-old summed up.
After the first lockdown, the party boat was again allowed to accept limited guests for breakfast trips – a ray of hope for Windscheid, who thought particularly of his staff. “Now, when Corona started, we immediately said if someone had problems, please report them,” emphasized Windscheid. “In good times and bad, that’s how I see it as a team.”
The ZDF report showed empathically that the corona pandemic is demanding – even millionaires. But the two WWM winners have not lost their will. Windscheid continues to fight tirelessly for his boat: “I would give my last button to make this thing work. And even if we were to slide deep into a crisis because Corona continues, we would not give up.”
