No, really, the smartest this time. We mean it
The outrageously popular TV quiz show, De slimste mens ter wereld (The Smartest Person in the World), which runs for just a few weeks every December and into January, is bringing back winners and finalists for the ultimate smarty-pants showdown.
De slimste mens ter wereld pumps up the volume
De allerslimste mens ter wereld (The Very Smartest Person in the World) pits the 30 strongest contestants from the past eight years against each other. Hosted by film director Erik Van Looy, De slimste mens always features bekende Vlamingen (well- known Flemings) and is part quiz, part entertainment.
Those returning to the bright orange contestant chairs include last year's winner, journalist Linda De Win, and several politicians, including SP.A party president Caroline Gennez, Groen! party member Eva Brems and N-VA party president Bart De Wever, who has assured the electorate that participation in the show will not interfere with the non-forming of the federal government.
The show begins on the evening of 6 December on channel één.
