The common thread is that I like quiz shows with real questions. I like it when the questions are hard. I like feeling good when I can answer them. I don’t like feeling tricked when I can’t.
My mum also likes quiz shows. She’s much better than I am at answering the questions. She won some money on The Pyramid Game once. I lost on Jeopardy.
My mum told me I should watch Pointless. It’s an interesting format. You have to answer the question correctly, but with the least likely answer. The aim is to get no points at all for finding a correct answer that no one else would ever have known. If you get the answer wrong, you get the maximum of 100 points… which is bad. It’s like Reverse Family Fortunes/Feud.
OK that’s all the background you need to enjoy this clip. Watch and cringe as a man who identifies himself as a Maths teacher answers a question on US Geography which he admits is his weakest subject.
