As many as 1.4 million people watched last night M.arble Mania. But not everyone was positive about the marble program with Jack van Gelder as commentator and Winston Gerschtanowitz as presenter. “In the eighties this was a gigantic studio show, now it is a fairly desolate and mostly boring affair.”
The concept initially comes from the brothers Jelle and Dion Bakker. Jelle is autistic and has been building the most bizarre and extensive marble jobs from an early age. Dion came up with competition with teams and his own YouTube channel Jelle’s Marble Run. This became a worldwide hit, and let’s be honest: the YouTube account is addictive.
Yet it hurts Jelle too much to watch the SBS program, he said earlier De Gelderlander. Initially, the two brothers were still involved Marble Maniaafter all, it’s their concept. But in the end they could not agree with a proposal from John de Mol. The brothers do not want to comment on its content.
Commentator Jack van Gelder said yesterday Subway that there is “excellent contact” with Jelle and that he will also be on the program. “The TV format originated from his ideas. His YouTube channel will be in Marble Mania also come forward. ”
Twitter is getting loose
Not everyone is happy with the ‘marble program with celebrities’ on Twitter. The emphasis of Marble Mania lies on lackluster game elements, while the marble tracks themselves are underexposed, viewers think. “I have the feeling that I am watching Wesley Sneijder’s birthday party”, someone responds.
An overview of the responses.

If you thought 2021 had not already got off to a bizarre start, Wesley Sneijder, Gio Bronckhorst and Ronald de Boer are currently playing marbles on SBS6. With commentary by Jack van Gelder. Money does crazy things to people. #MarbleMania

#MarbleMania in the eighties tn was supposed to be a gigantic studio show with Ron Brandsteder, now tn is fairly desolate and above all boring. More can be achieved and above all more interactive ……
