Candidates on the SBS game show won €82,000 at the studio, so Gerschtanowitz was allowed to bring that sum to someone’s home on behalf of the postcode lottery. He was looking for Ola, but found her husband making sandwiches for the next day.
Ola works as a home care worker and often works evening shifts, which is why she was not home, her husband said. He sat on the sofa next to the broadcaster with his eyes wide open and couldn’t help but say, “Oh my God.” With the bag still closed, Gershtanovich asked him what he wanted. With tears in his eyes, he said that he would like to visit his family in the Moluccas. Gershtanovich opened the suitcase and said that with the €82,000 the couple won, this wish could come true. “And even more desires you have.”
The winner still couldn’t believe it, and didn’t know exactly what to say after the good news. “Oh shit! Thank you!”
Viewers on social media say they enjoy the fact that the award goes to someone who could really use it. “I had to shed a tear. “So happy for this gentleman,” says one Miriam. Another calls it a “tear.” “What a joy, beautiful to see.”
