Dutch accent and cooking tips from Jan-Jaap van der Wal: this was the ‘World’s Smartest Man’

Bart Cannaerts has shown himself a professional in the jury box in recent years, but now gradually develops into the strongest player of the Jubilee season. And that is punishment, especially when you play against two former winners. But don’t worry, Smarter people don’t give up lol Certainly not when candidates have to bring their best Dutch accent.

Road Desmytere

Tonight’s winner:

Bart Cannaerts, for the third time in a row this week. Erik Van Looy is right when he says that comedy just keeps getting better.

The deficit:

Lieven Scheire, three years ago still the smartest person, has to leave the game after a participation. Gilles Van Bouwel, also a former winner, played it at home.

New tomorrow night:

Sexologist and podcast maker Lotte Vanwezemael.

Best quotes:

Eric Van Looy: “There are three handsome men here tonight. Exactly the Romeos 2.0.”

Jelle De Beule: “Gilles is wearing the right pants for that too.”


Van Looy: “Gilles, did you owe much?”

Gilles Van Bouwel: “No, but masturbating does.”


Van Looy: “Jan-Jaap, what exactly is a bakpao sandwich?”

Jan-Jaap van der Wal: “Don’t you know that? That’s Indonesian food. Ready. Eat it. Too much. You’re going to be a little mothy. You throw up in a ball of flour. And that’s just thirty seconds in the microwave.”

The best moment:

Do-it-yourself homework is always positive for some enthusiasm in the studio. The three candidates were presented with a sentence that they had to deliver with as convincing a Dutch accent as possible. This led to hilarious situations. Many ‘now’ and ‘yahááá’ are in Scheire and Cannaerts and a dubious intelligence in Van Bouwel. “I feel completely at home again”, Jan-Jaap van der Wal sounded a little sad.
