Preliminary round
8 candidates compete as pairs in single duels against each other. Each duel extends over three rounds where both knowledge and athletic activity are required. For example in the game "true or false" each celebrity makes a claim about his home country. The opponent has to guess whether the statement is correct or not.

Semifinals
The preliminary round determines which respective winner in a duel qualifies for the semifinals. In two-man teams over three rounds there is a play-off as to who will qualify for the "Celebrity Challenge" finals. In the "Body & Brain" game for example the candidate pair has to put their knowledge and cleverness to the test. If all of the questions cannot be answered by one candidate, the team partner can still win points through the cleverness game. Only the winning team goes on to the finals.

Finals
In the finals team partners revert to being opponents. One after the other the finals candidates take a seat on the "Celebrity Challenge" podium and answer five open questions about current affairs.
