After the clash of the titans on Wednesday evening, decompression was clearly felt in the last episode of the third week. Although the level of the quiz remained high. The video round was still playable, the final questions a lot less. Gilles Van Bouwel and Bart Cannaerts were able to come up with 27 good answers to nine questions, before Gilles was killed with a hefty 0-89 final score. Not to mention that it was not an exciting final battle.

There was enough tension in the quiz before. Bart Cannaerts had a lesser evening for the first time since his start, already six episodes ago, although it was once again clear that he is currently by far the best quizzer. But, this time after the ‘Puzzle’ he looked up to a considerable disadvantage. They are the real champions who never give up. And so Baert squeezed out a firm final sprint. But so did newcomer Lotte Vanwezemael. Without nerves she played a flawless round of films. Although Gilles Van Bouwel still had his own fate in his hands, he did not get further than three correct answers in the video about the transfer of Charles De Ketelaere and so rolled out the red carpet for Lotte. Women in power. For a while anyway.

On the jury seats the unsurpassed duo Wim Helsen-Jennifer Heylen. The comedian at his best with absurd interventions, disarming Jennifer with her bursting, infectious laugh. A perfect duo to decompress towards the fourth week.

The best quotes

Bart (about dreams): “I don’t know what I’m dreaming. When I wake up, I could write something down, but I don’t know what.”

Helsen (about the candidates): “I really hope that Lotte wins, because I think the other two are just bad… Someone said last week that I am too often positive. So now I’m going to practice saying something negative every now and then.”

Gilles Van Bouwel (whether he could be with a football player): “Why not? At this stage of my life you have to grab where you can.”

Helsen (after another improbable explanation): “I think a lot of people at home right now are thinking: ‘What are we looking at?’ This is the craziest moment in 20 years of ‘De Slimste Mens’. Apologies would be in order.”

Hilarious moments

Wim Helsen immediately introduces himself with a question about the number of ‘bumps’ between man and woman in bed. To which Jennifer: “More than three, Wim.”

Jennifer Heylen says that she is currently playing the role of a student in an Irish TV series. In English, but she didn’t get much further than “howajoe?”. To which she, in her own words, replied, “Whoahoo?” gets. As it should be, by the way.

Helsen continues on Andy Warhol’s dick theme. “Like many men, I have a name for my dick.” Jennifer wants to guess when he gives the initials EVL. “Erik Van Looy” it sounds. To which Helsen: “Sometimes when someone calls I say: “sorry I can’t, I’m in a meeting with Erik Van Looy”.

Another hilarious fact: the moment Bart Cannaerts tells how he was once arrested on suspicion of arson in his school. A misunderstanding, it turned out, after two officers arrested him because he looked like a possible pyromaniac who had jumped the wall.

Tipping moments

Newcomer Lotte starts with a zero score at ‘3-6-9’, but it is Bart Cannaerts who kicks on the spot during ‘Open Door’ and ‘Puzzle’. Gilles De Coster immediately jumps to almost 300 seconds here and seems to have won the game.

Cannaerts plays a great photo round, but Lotte and Gilles also score well. Bart starts the video round with a gap of almost 100 seconds.

With a lightning fast 150 seconds in his video about rector Caroline Pauwels, Bart immediately puts pressure on the competition. Lotte stays cool and in turn pops with 150 seconds. She wins, because Gilles fails.

In the final, Gilles and Bart play moderate to bad. Gilles manages to give only two correct answers to the last four questions. Then you always lose.

The final score (for the final game)

1. Lotte Vanwezemael: 440 sec.

2. Bart Cannaerts: 381 sec.

3. Gilles Van Bouwel: 375 sec.
