Well said Jez. If they are something to celebrate then God help the rest of us. Why call it 'celebrity' mastermind?

What more can they do?
Almost unbelievable. Questions for thick Z list failures who struggle to answer when a five year old could answer them with ease. Cheap dumbed down BBC rubbish at its very worst.

Masters degree ??
Rachael Riley has just said on TV that she got a Masters Degree from Oxford. Her Wikipedia entry says she got a 2:1 from Oriel Oxford. Clearly she is getting confused: her MA is not a masters - it is a BA but swapped for an MA honoris causa on the payment of a fee

Another BBC scandal
Thanks for the heads up on the way the show is fixed.

Totally fixed, they are given 100 questions and answers (for their specialist subject) and they have 2 weeks to memorise these. then they get random questions from the pre-defined 100. Also the general knowledge questions are 20 times easier for the "celebs", on a par with The Weakest Link. Oh and the "celebs" do indeed get a Fee for appearing!

Them & Us, As Per Usual
Hmmm, so if one’s a ‘Celebrity’ (whatever that means today) he or she has only to compete with 3 others, in one show, to win a trophy. Whereas we surfs need to win through umpteen episodes to be handed a trophy. And what’s all this about their chosen charity? Can it be these Demi-gods are being paid to appear as well? Yes, seems very fair to me.

Let's not let the dim celebrities look silly by asking them anything more complex than "how may feet have you got" Drivel of the highest magnus magnitude (lord rest his soul)
