Over the edge: Stefan Raab sends celebrities onto the piste – “Der große TV total Parallelslalom” (The Grand TV total Parallel Slalom) on ProSieben

Stefan Raab gets ready to race: 16 celebrities will compete in a ski duel on the challenging piste of the 2001 World Cup venue of St. Anton in the Arlberg region. “Der große TV total Parallelslalom” with DJ Ötzi, DJ Bobo, Toni Polster and Christian Tramitz – on Saturday, December 2, 2006, at 8:15 p.m. LIVE on ProSieben.

Stefan Raab has discovered a new sport for himself: parallel skiing in precipitous terrain. In the “Der große TV total Parallelslalom”, he invites celebrities to join him at one of the most demanding World Cup slalom pistes. In the Austrian town of St. Anton in the Arlberg region, 16 celebrities will take part in a direct ski duel. Looking forward to enjoying home advantages are DJ Ötzi and Toni Polster. The two local Austrian contenders will be competing in the slalom race, as will the Swiss musician, DJ Bobo, and comedian and winter sports ace, Christian Tramitz.

Whether plowing, swerving or carving – things can only go downhill. Extensive après ski experience simply won’t suffice: what counts here are technique, daring and stamina. Eight celebrity winter sport enthusiast couples will compete against each other. The winner is decided in a knock-out system. Whoever comes top following two runs will continue through to the next round – until there are only two left for the grand final. Who will be able to make it to the end of the piste in the most elegant manner? Which celeb will turn into a ruthless snow pig? And who will end up having a painful encounter with the white stuff?

The celebrities can look forward to an enthusiastic audience. The event weekend also marks the kick-off for the region’s winter season. Up to 5,000 winter sports-crazy spectators will be eagerly anticipating Stefan Raab’s “Der große TV total Parallelslalom” – the highlight of the weekend. Furthermore, Christina Stürmer and the new “Engel” from POPSTARS will be providing musical entertainment at the finishing stadium in St. Anton.

Deciding the couples for the grand live show will take place on Friday, December 1, 2006. In “Der große TV total Parallelslalom – Das Qualifying” (The Grand TV total Parallel Slalom – The Qualifying), the skiers will start individually. The celeb with the worst time has to compete against the fastest skier on Saturday, the second-worst against the second-best, etc.
