They say that what happens in Germany stays in Germany. Wait… no they don’t. But then again, few people know about the German Reality TV show that was on the air while a stuntman met his untimely demise on the air.
The show “Wetten, dass…?” (“Wanna Bet?”) saw the death of a 29-year old stunt man as they filmed (live) an attempt to jump over a car in spring-powered stilts.
The car he jumped was being driven by his father. Needless to say, Justin Bieber’s slotted appearance for later in the episode was cancelled to the dismay of Germans everywhere.
