    Exactly right, it does. So to pick out one guy who has achieved things and is better known than many others on these shows, for whatever reason that may be, is odd.

    Another couple of memorable answers on yesterday's programme. One in particular had me gobmacked. A female contestants was asked, " Which is the predominant language spoken in the Middle East?"
    Her answer........Japanese.

    I just googled "NFL player strictly come dancing" and I've never heard of him. I doubt many people in the US have. He wouldn't be getting on a game show here.

    I saw a clip where the interviewer asked an American contestant to name a country beginning with U. He thought for a while and then gave up. The interviewer asked him if he recognised a country called the United States of America.
    You could see the lights starting to come on in his face slowly but he got it

    Makes you wonder

    Is he a limbo dancer?

    I can't remember his name sorry, but think he's particularly known in this country for presenting a tv programme about NFL. If you'd like me to try to describe him to you, I'd have to check first on what terms would be acceptable.

    Just watched it. Absolutely priceless !

    I think both the contestants are going to look back when watching the programme and say, "What on Earth was I thinking about". The young lad must know a dolphin is not a fish so I assume he panicked. The other guy was just a numpty.

    Have you noticed that nearly all the airhead young girls have the same specialist subject.........Disney. Speaks volumes really so it's refreshing when you see a young girl on there with a modicum of general knowledge.
