Kaufmann’s appearance was the number one talking point on Monday night among viewers who were also on Twitter. The candidate also dominated the gossip press the following morning. Christine Kurzmann from Essen will not be forgotten anytime soon.
She does not know herself otherwise, as she now explains in an interview with RTL. “I have to accept the fact that I’m like that. I tried to be different once and it wasn’t better,” Kurzmann said. “Actually, I’m pretty nice. It just kinda kicked me.”
Christine Kaufmann is now not only 32,000 euros richer, but also known throughout Germany. Things got even better for the candidate who succeeded him. Benjamin Gumbach is currently facing the €125,000 question. This will only be asked of the editor in the next issue.
