Television Who is Pablo Carbonell, the new guest of Pasapalabra

Orestes Barbero touched the jar of the Rosco de Pasapalabra with his fingers this Tuesday.

The man from Burgos surprised everyone with a first round with 24 hits on the scoreboard. However, he needed to define before the last word to win the 2.2 million euro prize.

The question was: "Name of the queen consort of Aragon belonging to the house of Moncada who married King James II in 1322." Barbero chose "Eulalia" when the correct answer was "Elisenda".

On the other hand, this Wednesday the contest premieres new guests to complete the first week of March. The Antena 3 show, presented by Roberto Leal from Seville, will feature Esther Arroyo, Pepe Begines, Pablo Carbonell and Patricia Cerezo.

Pablo Carbonell (Cádiz, 1962) is all in one: actor, comedian, screenwriter, film director, singer and television reporter.

In the 80s he became famous for his participation in the TVE program La bola de cristal together with the late Pedro Reyes.

"Thanks to the Crystal Ball, I showered once a week. I lived in a very shabby pension, where the shower was shared with a lot of dark people who lived in that place. And I didn't use it. When I went to the Roma Studios where we recorded the program, he had a shower in the dressing room and there he took advantage of it," Carbonell said in an interview on

"At that time we did not realize the freedom of expression we had. Right now, if in a children's program you take out an atomic bomb and a character who shouts long live evil, long live capital!, you end up in court," he added. .

In those years he also became the leader of the musical group Toreros Muertos, a reference in the Madrid movement.

In Carbonell's artistic list he also stands out for being one of the most recognized reporters of the Caiga quién Caiga program. In addition, he has participated in more than twenty films and was also the author, along with Alberto Amoraga, of the lyrics Ay que gusto pa mis orejas frías by the singer Raimundo Amador.

"I have been a drug addict, I have put on everything. I have saved myself because I do my work clean. If I did not do my work clean, I would not be sitting here, I do it sooner or later. Now I have not taken drugs for a long time ", the artist confessed in an interview with Fran Rivera on the Espacio Público program.

"Kids have to be careful because when they are young and they are beginning to train, they start with hashish or marijuana, considered soft drugs, and there is nothing soft about them," said the singer.

He has two daughters with María Arellano, Carlota and Mafalda who were diagnosed with congenital multiple arthrogryposis. After seven operations on her, they were able to sign her up for dance classes since she regained her autonomy.

The couple wanted to make their daughter's illness visible to help other parents in the same situation.
