The “TV total Wok-WM” next Saturday evening (November 12, from 8:15 p.m. on ProSieben) will take place without Sebastian Pufpaff (46). The moderator and comedian broke his ribs in a bicycle accident and will therefore fail at the cult event. ProSieben announced this via Twitter, among other things. After seven years, the “Wok World Cup” is celebrating its comeback on TV screens.

Instead, the instrumental band Heavytones should now “lead the ‘TV total’ team to victory in a 4-person wok,” writes the broadcaster. Manfred “Manni” Ludolf (60) will also climb “into the legendary 1er wok” on Saturday.

Pufpaff already failed on his ProSieben show “TV total” last Wednesday. Instead, Michael “Bully” Herbig (54) took over the moderation for a short time – and caused laughter with a special serenade. One of the lyrics was about Pufpaff’s “slippery” bike accident and his “quadruple fractured ribs”.

Apparently, the moderator can now take his fall with humor. On Instagram he writes about a photo of himself and his walker on an ice rink: “What does my orthopedist say? I’m slowly getting old. I’ll be back, puffier than ever!”
