Ex-lovers compete against each other in The smartest person: ‘Milan broke up’ | show

Try to maintain that supreme concentration when you suddenly have to compete against your ex-lover in TV quiz The smartest person. It happened to sports journalist Milan van Dongen and comedian Lisa Loeb tonight. Politician Caroline van der Plas sat somewhat uncomfortably between the two.

Van Dongen and Loeb were totally surprised by each other’s presence. The two were in a relationship ten years ago, they said. A small discussion immediately arose in the studio about the duration of this. “Half a year,” Loeb claimed. “Longer right?” thought Van Dongen, reporter and presenter at sports channel ESPN.

Politician Caroline van der Plas (BoerenBurgerBeweging) who was sitting between the two ex-lovers, promptly raised her arms in the air. “Oh dear, that’s where it starts,” she joked.

Van Dongen then addressed presenter Philip Freriks: ,,I had prepared myself for many things, Philip, but not that I should play against my ex-lover.”

Real coincidence

When asked, the editors of De smartest mens swore that the reunion between the two was purely coincidental. In the preparation of the TV game extensive research is done on the candidates. ,,But their full love life is usually not on the map. It is really a coincidence,” said a spokesperson for the KRO-NCRV.

Presenter Freriks certainly enjoyed the fluke. “Sometimes coincidence can be very beautiful.” He revisited their romance several times. ‘Yes? Is it a nice reunion?’ “Have you seen each other again?” The answer was a few coffees over the years. The sports reporter also visited a performance by his former girlfriend.

broke up

After a quiz question about Romeo and Juliet – could that also be a coincidence? – Freriks wanted to know who had actually ended the courtship. Comedian Loeb reacted quickly to that. Milan! Yes Yes Yes. Never got over it of course,” she laughed. Loeb — “now happily married to someone else” — called the breakup painful. She was proud of her successful attempt at seduction at the time, comparing Van Dongen with Roger Federer. After that one comment it was ‘on’. ,,Correct. Roger Federer is one of my great heroes, so I was immediately sold,” the ex-lover agreed.

Last week, Loeb went wrong with a quiz question about tennis. She forgot Federer’s name. Jokingly: “But that’s what trauma does to you.”

Van Dongen – also married – may be lucky in love, but not in play. He lost tonight against Caroline van der Plas, who saved her skin just in time in the final with a question about the sparkling drink Lambrusco. When he said goodbye, the sports reporter pointed to his ex-girlfriend, who has already been in the game for four rounds. “Of course she’s going to win,” he predicted.
