Well I wasn't keeping a close count on how many I got right but I was certainly left with the same impression as you.


The guy who won week two got possibly the easiest run of 6-7 questions in the GK round I have ever known. Im hardly at the stage of matching this guys but it seems hardly fair when the young guy who answered on Led Zep was faced with much tougher questions.

I thought the 'Led Zep Guy' had a more accessible GK round than the others. Each to their own, I guess.

I've often thought that contenders get sets aimed, to an extent, at their own general interests. That being the case, someone whose interests sit closer to one's own will tend to appear "easier" perhaps than those whose interest differ markedly from your's (if that makes any sense?).

And Andrew's mum has the distinction of being the oldest ever contender on Mastermind.
