I can imagine it gets a lot harder when you’re sat in the chair
Indeed, like when you've been with the lads on a bank holiday weekend and you get in and the Mrs says how many have you had... erm, 3, 2, 4, 1!!!

Yes, but venting your spleen?
Clarkson does this really well with much sarcasm, if it was Tarrant I wouldn't be watching, not that I don't like him either.

Thought Clarkson was great. Though anyone would have been better than Tarrent.

Enjoyed it and JC was very good. My only issue with this programme is I rather they upped the pace a bit. Too many ad breaks too.

I was surprised by that answer. He was an educated man, you'd think that the derivation of Nike would be well-known.

Clarkson's column in today's Sunday Times is revealing about his role in the show. Apparently he was sarcastic to one competitor on purpose because he thought they were there for a quick £8K and scarper. It was always like that - very few genuine punters with cohones.

Exactly. When he was asking them how much they hoping to win he joked "you know the show is called 'who wants to be a millionaire', not 'who wants to win £8k'".

I have to admit to feeling a touch of schedenfreude, especially for the last guy. The first chap may not have been the smartest, but at least he used all the tools available to him and recognised when he had got as far as he could. Contestant number three was far too confident, and even though he knew he didn't know the answer, he just jabbed at it anyway without using any lifelines. Very poor gameplay.

Over confidence I suppose.
The usual applies though, they’re only easy when you know the answer!
My Mrs is 32 and she had never heard of the saying vent your spleen. She got every other question right apart from the Diesel one

I have to admit I had never heard of the "hive" thingy, although it was easy enought to deduce.

We're not all petrolheads, but I was stunned the guy couldn't immediately identify diesel as the answer - it was the only option that made sense.

The keyboard question annoyed me, he used most of his life lines on it and then after 50/50 started to deduct it with a process of elimination.
He could have done that when he was first asked!

I was doing quite well watching this, the only real killer was the one about the folic acid.

My phone a friend partner/nurse got that one wrong. She's be served an eviction notice.

Quite enjoyed it.

I can only imagine the pressure gets to the contestants however as some of those questions were awfully easy...

No one really got to the hard questions though, I seem to remember after 32 or 64k it ramped up quite quickly in difficulty

I've just watched it on catch-up,t hankfully the ads are missed out, so nearl seamless watching.
I thought JC was very funny in places and will watch again. The contestants were rather thick though, I knew all the answers! they really weren't difficult.

To be fair, no matter what the question is, if you know the answer, the question is easy smile

I've no doubt it's much more difficult when you're actually in the chair.

This guy who's on now is doing really well, almost outwitting Jeremy biggrin

I'm really liking Jeremy's hosting technique, it makes the show much more enjoyable unlike before when they just sat in silence for 10minutes.

He does seem to be on the ball - very good after last night's laughable efforts!
