To give some background information, Francisco was born to German-Jewish parents Anna Blumenfeld and Erick Kreutzberger, who immigrated to Chile with the wish to escape Nazi persecution. Encouraged by his parents, young Francisco moved to New York with the aim of becoming a tailor. However, he wasn’t into sewing at all, and spent most of his time in front of his TV-set.

In 1962, he started work on television in the show “Sábado Gigante” broadcast on Canal 13 in Chile which evolved into a successful career that added lots financially to the Don Francisco’s net worth. At that time the entertainment business had just started in Chile, so Don Francisco did not have any teachers or tutors to teach him, so he tried to do his best according to the example he had seen while living in the USA. Soon, the show gained popularity and the length of the show expanded up to three hours. Don Francisco has now been hosting the show for more than 50 years.

In 1986, he had a partner Rolando Barral, which was changed by Pedro de Pool (1986-1991). Since then, the show is hosted by two presenters, Don and Javier Romero to the present. It is worth saying that the show has also been aired in the USA since 1986. The Guinness World Records lists the show as the world’s longest running television variety program. However, it has now been announced that the show will end in September 2015.

In addition to the hosting of the legendary show, Don is also a creator and presenter of the reality show “Don Francisco Presenta” (2001–2012) aired on Univision. More, he was the host of the game shows “Quién merece ser millonario?” (2010), “Deal or No Deal” (2011) and “Atrapa los Millones” (2012–present). These positions have also added sums to the Don Francisco net worth. “Teletón USA” (2012) charity event was also hosted by Don Francisco.

It should be said that Don Francisco is rather stable person not prone to changes. He hosted a show for more than 50 years and lived in a family with one woman for the same time. In 1963, he married Teresa Muchnik Rosenblum and they still live together, having produced three children. Currently, they reside in Miami, Florida.
