“Grill den Henssler”: Another defeat for TV chef: “You will no longer be invited”
Things didn’t look good for the chef this week either. In his show “Grill den Henssler” Steffen is challenged again and ends up boiling with anger.
“It’s… there’s that… so… I… you do something like that…” At some point Steffen Henssler just couldn’t find the words. Not that he hadn’t tried everything. He scolded, cursed, grumbled, moaned, moaned. But it didn’t help. “It’s not going well again today,” he resigned, even before the dessert was served. That was true: the host star TV chef had to “Grill den Henssler” (VOX) once again acknowledge bankruptcy, the second in a row, which has not happened for a year and a half.
99:107 it said at the end. The Maître could have kept his hands off the stove. Because almost two hours before he had a feeling: “It’s the same shit … as last week.” Henssler (50) looked crumpled out of the chef’s jacket, the black one, and was sad. His opponents, on the other hand, are actress Christine Ursprechen (52), Alec Völkel (51) and Sascha Vollmer (51), the cowboy rockers from The BossHoss, TV presenter and humorist Pierre M. Krause (46) and their cooking coach Alexander Wulf (42), celebrated. Henssler grumpy: “You will no longer be invited.”
“Grill den Henssler”: TV chef Steffen has no chance
He also had to attribute it to himself, as moderator Laura Wontorra (34) indicated. The champion has won 95 of 131 GDH shows, only lost twice in the last 13 rounds. “We’ll have to come up with something,” she said almost apologetically. As soon as the opponents were introduced, it became clear: the barbecue champion was going to have something to do! The two BossHoss cowboys planned the hat trick. You had previously won your walk against Henssler on both flying visits. Koch coach Alexander Wulf also wanted to eradicate his 89:105 score from his debut last October: “I’m relatively sure of victory.” He was still laughing, Steffen!
He lost it as soon as he heard the ingredients for the improv course: black garlic, jackfruit, and condensed milk. “These are ingredients I never use. I don’t know why either!” The experienced Henssler quickly found the right tactic: “I have no chance of winning. It’s about damage minimization.” Didn’t work: At 19:25 he smoked off, while the celebrities shared their first 10 of the evening – of all things, and “without batting an eyelid”, from jury executioner Christian Rach ( 65).
Steffen Henssler shares his donation money
After the first kitchen competition, Henssler was already 19:28 behind. He practically gave away the three points. It was true that he was no weaker when it came to tasting non-alcoholic beers (Krause: “The show has barely started and I’ve already had a bad one – great show!”). But then he counted the letters of the program title “Grill den Henssler” incorrectly in the key question. “15,” he blurted out, and then: “No, wrong, 16, shit…!”
If you don’t have it yourself, you need luck. Or negligence on the part of the opponent. After “Tatort” star Christine Ursprechen had conjured up a very excellent “Lobster Thermidor with lettuce hearts”, star chef coach Wulf dawdled when placing the plates. The last one, intended for Jana Ina Zarrella (46), was only seconds after the deadline and had to be taken out of the ranking. According to Henssler also not debatable. “On a day when I’m down by nine points, I insist on the rule book.”
After all: First of all, according to the jury, Henssler would have won the course like this, but only by the skin of 27:26 instead of suddenly 27:18. And secondly, as a gentleman gesture, he shared the 4,000 euro donation with Ursprechen. “Because it wasn’t you who screwed that up, it was your cooking coach.”
“Grill den Henssler” candidate slams to victory
But even a gift from the opponent and the 49:46 lead (after the second kitchen competition) did not bring Henssler back on the winning track. Because the BossHoss boys cooked it humorlessly and at a fantastic level with “veal heart with polenta, corn and baby artichokes”. They scored 29 points, including two top marks from Rach and Zarrella again. Henssler didn’t get past 24 and once again suspected it: “I have nothing to do with innards, I don’t know my way around.” After the successful treble, Sascha Vollmer was ironic about a relaunch of the Henssler format: “Stiehl the Henssler the show”.
When Henssler ran out of breath (from the inflated paper bags) in the third interlude, but not loud enough, the score was 73:78. Krause’s bang brought victory, with 84 decibels being the loudest. Krause: “If I can do anything, then drink and bang.”
“Grill den Henssler”: Strong opponents are waiting next week too
But he can also cook. Although he was nervous (“The pressure is on my narrow shoulders”), he concentrated on the point with the Canarian almond cake with mango and avocado. What you couldn’t say from the other person. Henssler preferred to show his presenter how to pan a pan – and first burned the almonds and then almost the cake.
Henssler rioted with baking trays, snapped at his “Zivi” Howan and wailed forever about the bag bursting, but the barbecue child was in the well. Especially since Krause cooked formidably. Again there were twice the 10 (from Zarrella and Reiner Calmund, 74). Henssler then also recognized the level of the opposing “high cuisine”, he had no other choice, but you could see that he would have liked to bite the edge of a table. “Even after 130 shows, I can still get sooooo excited.” And that’s a good thing. That’s why his fans love him.
Ungrateful opponents are waiting again next week: That’s when the “Mother’s Day Special” is coming up!
