“Scoundrels”: rain of criticism of Antena 3 for delaying the start of ‘Pasapalabra’ and lengthening the “insufferable” gathering of ‘El Hormiguero’

The mythical contest broadcast in ‘prime time’ the program in which Rafa Castaño won the biggest jackpot in its history, 2,272,000 euros.


viewers of Pass word they are in luck. After more than a year and a half waiting, the legendary contest delivered the biggest jackpot in its history yesterday. After a flawless donut, which delighted the spectators, Rafa Castaño won 2,272,000 euros of accumulated money. However, this expected day was seen clouded by the decisions of Antena 3: broadcast the program in ‘prime time’ and lengthen the gathering of the anthill.

The private channel announced on Wednesday that Pass word would broadcast the most important program in its history at 10:45 p.m. on Thursday. A decision that brought controversy among the fans of the mythical contest, since many were angry for broadcasting it at a different time. In addition, they also complained to Atresmedia that it was so late. And it is that, the audience pointed out that it is a family program and that the smallest of the house at that time are already asleep.

But that was not going to be the only controversy that I would see on social networks last night. The fans of Pass word they started to get angry with Antena 3 when it was 10:45 p.m. and it was still going on the anthill. Not a trace of the program presented by Roberto Leal until after 11:00 p.m. at night. The private channel decided lengthen the gathering of Pablo Motos more than usual and company, something that caused a shower of criticism on Twitter.

“I have come for Pasapalabra and I have 15 minutes of insufferable sister-in-laws,” wrote a user on the well-known social network. The viewers who put Antena 3 at the time it was supposed to be Pass word they met motorcycles, Nuria Roca, Juan del ValCristina Pardo and Tamara Falcó talking about current events. In fact, the presenter commented with the collaborator and scriptwriter of the program if his wife knocks on the bathroom door when she is doing her greatest needs. Something that the spectators did not believe.

“I think it’s shameful that they’re trying to scratch audiences by forcing us to swallow this”; “What a tease to the audience”; “What to comply with the broadcast schedules you have to check“; or “Antena 3 you are bloody scoundrels. You have changed the schedule of Pasapalabra and on top of that you lie” are other comments that viewers wrote.

‘Pasapalabra’ gives its biggest ever jackpot this week, but the record on European television is held by this other mythical Spanish contest

However, and after this “insufferable” moment, the fans of the successful contest enjoyed a wonderful program. From the first moment the blue team showed its superiority to the orange team of Orestes, but what no one expected was that Rafa hit the 25 words of the donut in a single turn.
