Long term fans of Bother’s Bar may remember that back when you could stream John de Mol’s Tien channel live over the internet we championed a show called De Slimste (The Smartest). Hosted by the ever amazing Linda de Mol, this was the Dutch version of a popular Belgian format De Slimste Mens Ter Wereld (The Smartest Person In The World, the joke being that Belgium is meant to be the smartest country so the winner must be the smartest person in the world). It’s basically a sort of general knowledge themed Talkabout with added strategy elements. Despite this it doesn’t take itself too seriously, the Dutch show was played with celebrities.
It’s a neat little quiz which I will be doing a feature on in the next few weeks. But if you can’t wait that long it looks like the Belgians are currently “doing a run” of it right now. I can’t find full episodes or a live stream, but there are clips.
