Christian Galvez, the face of Pass word during 14 of the 19 years that the contest has been maintained on Spanish television, it will not be in the new edition prepared by Antena 3. Mediaset has announced that the presenter will stay in the house, where he currently presents a section of Save me of questions and answers similar to Pass word call The pull.
The renewal eliminates the possibility that Galvez remains in the contest, a possibility that for weeks has seemed real. The presenter and Atresmedia were negotiating, without even reaching a specific offer. Sources close to these conversations ensure that a key issue in the return of the contest to Antena 3 is the profitability of the operation: Pass word It is much cheaper than the space it will replace, Now I fall, but maintaining that benefit would force Galvez’s salary to be cut. Mediaset maintains the right of first refusal with the presenter, that is, the possibility of equal offers that it receives to maintain its contract.
It will be the first time since 2005 that the contest has another face, yet to be announced. Gálvez’s passage through the contest remains as something exclusively of Telecinco: before, between 2000 and 2005, when he was in Antena 3, he had been presented by Silvia Jato and Constantino Romero. However, and as announced by Atresmedia, it will be about how little it changes in the new version, which Antena 3 assumes after losing Telecinco the rights of the default format. The television group has been done with all the tests, intellectual property of different owners, and plans to release it in the first half of the year.
