It’s been nine years since the last “Mein Mann kann” edition flickered across the TV screens – on Monday evening Sat.1 dared a new edition of the game show.
Four prominent couples competed against each other. In seven rounds, the women were allowed to bet on their men, who were hoping to win EUR 10,000 for a good cause.
This time there: ex-national kicker Stefan Effenberg (53) with his wife Claudia (56), the short Paralympics winner 2016 in shot put Niko Kappel (27) and girlfriend Christiane Zimmermann (26), soccer player and reality TV icon Thorsten Legat (53 ) with his better half Alexandra (56) and the Pocher couple Oliver (44) and Amira (29).
It was not the first participation for the Effenbergs: Stefan caused a sensation in 2012 because he had a love tattoo for his Claudia on the show. However, Amira also trusted her Oli that evening and emphasized: “He is allergic to losing. I’ve never seen him scared of anything.”
Pocher autograph for Amira’s birthday
Meanwhile, Alexandra Legat relied on her husband’s gentle nature and enthused: “I often get declarations of love from him, and that’s really nice!”
However, Amira can only dream of such romantic messages: “I once received a birthday card. For this he simply took an autograph card. Well, he gave me an autograph card of himself for my birthday! He then said in his defence: I didn’t find any paper.”
Amira also had doubts about her husband’s abilities during the first round of “suitcase tower”. Here you should guess how many suitcases the husbands can stack on top of each other on an Ape, i.e. a three-wheeled trolley, and drive through the studio. Amira immediately unpacked what her husband CANNOT do: “He can’t shift like that.”
Nevertheless, she claimed that her husband can maneuver ten suitcases from A to B and sent him into the game: “Otherwise I’ll get in trouble!” That’s a bit different.”
But the surprise was not long in coming: like a true professional, Oliver steered the suitcase tower across the finish line without it tipping over.
Pocher complains about the children’s choir
Pocher also had to do it in the next round, but failed miserably because he could recognize 14 summer hits that were sung at the same time in a medley by the “Lucky Kids” children’s choir. First he joked: “First of all, I’m glad it’s not all mine.”
But when Oliver recognized just nine heat hits like “Bailando” and “Macarena”, he half-jokingly teased the group of children: “Next time in a row. First her, then her!”
Moderator Daniel Boschmann (41) intervened: “Do you stop yelling at the children?! come here now You can do that at home!” But Oli continued to nag: “Who is training you? I don’t get it. It’s not that difficult!”
Victory for Niko and Christiane Kappel
In the end Niko Kappel and his wife Christiane scored. Niko easily managed nine somersaults on a trampoline and was able to eliminate his opponent Thorsten Legat in the final.
For the Paralympics star and his wife, there was not only the title as “‘My husband can’ power couple”, but also the prize of 10,000 euros, which they donated to the support association for para athletics and to children and young people from Ukraine donate.
