The hen will be unrecognizable when it returns to the air on Thursday night. Pandemic forces, TVA and Loto-Quebec have developed a new formula to allow the popular game show to resume service without derogating from the directives of the government, which wants to restrict travel between regions.
The show will continue to be hosted by Sébastien Benoit and Julie Houle from the same studio in Montreal, but without competitors. The latter will stay at home. They will be provided with a tablet and will share their choices with the animators, who will operate the games for them.
In one of the games, abacuses will replace the wheels. And of course, no supporter will hold up “egg” or “envelope” signs in the studio to influence the winner’s final decision.
The mechanics of the show were tested last week during a general in which Sébastien Benoit and Julie Houle participated.
The goose that lays golden eggs will air at 7 p.m. this fall. This is the third time slot change in three years for the show.
