GACKT increases his undefeated, unmatched personal winning streak on 『Kakuzuke CHECK』 to 48
ABC, TV Asahi’s 『Geinoujin Kakuzuke CHECK! This is the real first-class product! 2017 New Year’s Day Special』(6:00 p.m.), which has become a yearly New Year’s Day tradition, and has “first-class celebrity” GACKT’s winning streak journey becoming a hot topic each time, was broadcasted on the 1st. GACKT extended his personal win streak to 48, showing his overwhelmingly unmatched performance again this year.
This time as well, GACKT, who appeared in the studio with a confident look, said that if he was undone by the first question, which requires distinguishing between a bottle of wine that costs 1 million yen from one that costs 5,000 yen, he declared that 「I’ll go home」. He impressively answers it correctly, and following the wine, he continues adding on to his winning streak by answering without any hesitation in his eyes, like his successfully distinguishing truffles of the finest quality from frozen truffles, and a professional jazz band from an amateur one.
In the team challenge, although Takafumi Horie got the answer wrong by not picking the instruments that are worth 2.8 billion yen, and caused them to fall to the rank of 「Normal Celebrity」 again this year, GACK himself chose the correct answer to this question.
The legend of GACKT started in 2009. With Barcelona Olympic Games Judo 78 kg class gold medalist, Yoshida Hidehiko, music producer Tsunku ♂ (2015), movie director Kiriya Kazuaki (2012), former K-1 world champion Masato (2013), singer Nishikawa Takanori (2014), and Golden Bomber’s Kiryuuin Sho (2015), he has partnered with friends who he was close with in their private life, together they continued his consecutive winning streak.
However in 2016, his partners, Kis-My-Ft2’s Kitayama Hiromitsu and Nakayama Yuma got an answer wrong, and the team winning streak was stopped at 39. Since then, the focus has been on how far GACKT can stretch his personal winning streak to.
