Take on the Twisters

Just been watching this show and have it all figured out but one detail. Anybody out there who knows whether the 3 contestants who don't feature in the final round get to keep any money they have banked. Julia Bradbury doesn't explain this which is annoying.

Time spent recording a show

I recently appeared on a quiz show for the first time(won't mention the name) and was amazed how long it took to record. When the programme was shown each one lasted about 25 minutes. I won my show so was obviously there until the end but it took almost 2½ hours to record. Is this typical or did I j...

Quiz questions about highest, fastest, largest etc

I set a quiz recently and got this question from a quiz book. What is the largest bear in the world - Answer from book - The Polar Bear. One team queried this and said it was The Kodiak bear. Not being able to offer a resolution I allowed both answers. Just goes to show that these questions are alwa...

Re: Cleverdicks: Tribute spoilt by QM

I have watched all episodes of the show so far and really enjoy the format. However I have now stopped watching as I can no longer put up with Anne Widdecombe's strident voice. She is obvously trying to carve out a TV career but she is not suited to being a quiz show host and I hope Sky Atlantic rep...

Re: Cleverdicks: Tribute spoilt by QM

I thought the format of the show was very good. Well done to quiz veteran Rob for winning. I thought the standard of most questions was quite difficult for the first three clues but I got a few more correct on the 4th and 5th. Thought Anne W did quite well and kept the show at the right level. I am ...

Re: Jackpot Questions

we have to shout loud not because it's noisy but because the QM is a bit mutton.

Re: Google Proof Quiz....Interesting article

I agree with all that has been said but in life there will always be those who find a way to cheat. You have to steel yourself and expose them if you see it happening. The rest of the contestants will soon vent their spleens at them.

Re: Jackpot Questions

The guy who sets the quiz at the pub we go to has one of those quizbooks with about 500 quizzes, each with twenty questions and after the quiz he asks the winners to pick a page number and then a number between 1 and 20. That question is then asked to all the teams who didn't win for them to shout o...

Re: Trumpton Firemen Names

Thanks Chris for your initial answer and taking the time to post a sound link. I am satisfied I gave the correct answer to the question and now reserve the right to gloat.

Re: Trumpton Firemen Names

Thanks for the answers that was the answer I gave and it was marked as incorrect. The quizmaster said it starts with Hugh, Pugh etc. I know he has the fantastic book by Trevor Montague "The A-Z of almost Eveything" and sometimes takes his questions from there and it contains an incorrect l...
