“At the beginning of this year gave Harry Mens still recommend that he replace it Matthijs van Nieuwkerk could take over. He has no lack of blind ambition. Meanwhile, with his parody of a talk show, he has managed to keep going for over twenty years and to fill his pockets. With an audience that is as loyal as it is uncritical, plus a script written by him himself, with questions fired in completely random order, he sometimes manages to score an unintentional looseness among politicians or nouveau riche, but in general painful situations dominate, such as with the ‘Moroccans‘from a chef present and incomprehensible discussions with the invariably grumpy Willem van Hanegem”Reads the jury report.
As Mens in his oeuvre prize RTL Boulevard he immediately wonders whether it is intended to be satirical. “They just figure it out, I think it’s fine”, he responds somewhat angry. “People watch every Sunday and that’s what matters to me.” He certainly does not like the price and he certainly does not understand that he is seen as the worst presenter. “No, it is not!” He says firmly. “It’s not true.”
The Hit Kwis
