Thread: Tipping Point

  1. #1

    Tipping Point

    Anyone watch it this evening? One contestantís answers to five questions that I can remember;
    Who was President of the USA on January 1st, 2000?........... George Washington
    How many pennies were in a pound pre decimalisation?..........6
    What is the shipping forecast region in the North Sea named after Northern invaders?....... Christopher Columbus
    Nigel Benn was a British World Champion in which sport?...........Football (he said that sport was his specialist category )
    Which Welsh football team used to play at Ninian Park?......... Well itís not Cardiff City because they play at the Millennium Stadium so itís Newport County.
    Thing is he actually won tonight, the counters just fell for him, £2,500. He should have gone for the trade though because the ten grand counter dropped.
    Got past embarrassing watching him and became funny, donít they get asked a few warm up questions to see if theyíre actually up to being put on the show Even Ben Shepherd took the piss a little bit

    You'd hope it's a myth, although i wouldn't be surprised if it's true

    Re: Tipping Point

    Some of the answers to questions on the US version of weakest link were so bad they ahd to re-write the questions to dumb them down and they still got amazingly stupid answers. But maybe some of it is due to the "Caught in the headlights" syndrome,

    He was told that they're not looking for Egghead types so he deliberately answered some questions wrongly during his audition and eventually he got through.

    Voting for someone you don't approve of doesn't automatically mean someone is thick as shit.

    I was shocked that Trump made a reference to Wales last week, without saying he thought it was a State in England.

    Re: Tipping Point

    I love Tipping Point but the lack of basic general knowledge can be astounding at times. Fair enough, if contestants start panicking during the speed round and lose all sense of reasoning but some of the answers given when they have time to think are cringe-worthy.

    My pet hate is the old chestnut you hear from some younger contestants in particular "That was a bit before my time Ben". I would love him to come back with, "Well you've heard of Hitler, Julius Caesar and Mozart haven't you ? And I think they were all around before your time"

    Having said all that, it's still a programme I never miss.

    Just seen it as I had it on record. Unbelievable how such brain-dead people feel comfortabe to share their stupidity with the viewing public. The winner has got to be the dimmest person ever to get to the final.

    And he had the audacity to say at one point "I don't want to look stupid!" or words of that ilk.

    Indeed he did. I think the viewing public had already made their mind up by that point ! George Washington, Christopher Columbus and 6 old pennies in the pound are three of the most inane answers I've ever seen on a quiz show.
