“Toast the Henssler Summer Special”
This is what viewers expect
This year “Grill den Henssler” is getting another summer special. Viewers can expect that.
This year, “Grill den Henssler” is once again embarking on an outdoor summer tour. Starting Sunday (July 31), viewers can catch one of five new episodes of “Grill den Henssler Summer Special” every Sunday starting at 8:15 p.m. on VOX (or by RTL+) to chase. Moderator Laura Wontorra (33) leads the duels as usual. Steffen Henssler (49) wants to “grill” these 15 stars this time.
In the opening episode on July 31, the professional chef will meet choreographer Nikeata Thompson (41), comedian Chris Tall (31) and actor Oliver Mommsen (53) on the lake stage at Elbauenpark Magdeburg . Not Tall’s first attempt at grilling the Henssler. This is the fourth time he has appeared on the show. Thompson, on the other hand, already managed to win the main course of the “Grill den Profi-Sommerspecial” against Roland Trettl (51) in 2018. The celebrities are coached in the first episode by the Eggert brothers.
Repeat offenders and newcomers in sight
Henssler also encounters repeat offenders in episode 2: comedian Paul Panzer (50) and presenter Evelyn Weigert (32) enter the kitchen arena for the fourth time. Actor Uwe Ochsenknecht (66) is trying his luck for the second time. The three celebrities are supported by professional chef Björn Swanson (38).
However, some celebrities are also wielding spatulas on the show for the first time. August 14 will follow a number with newcomers singer Kim Fisher (53) and comedian Wigald Boning (55). King of the jungle Filip Pavlović (28) has already been seen on the show’s jungle special this year. It will be led by professional chef Ali Güngörmüs (45).
On August 21, Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis (62), host Patrick Esume (48) and actress Ilka Bessin (50) want to prove themselves at the grill. They are trained by Johann Lafer (64). And under the watchful eye of cooking coach Christian Lohse (55), presenter Harry Wijnvoord (73), musician and presenter Stefan Mross (46) and designer Barbara Becker (55) will end on August 28.
It makes the summer special
As usual, the well-established jury consisting of Mirja Boes (50), Reiner Calmund (73) and Christian Rach (65) evaluated the top performing dishes. “Grill den Henssler Sommer-Special” takes place for the fifth time as an open-air recording. The format differs from the usual show in that the dishes can only be prepared on grills.
