    First numbers round, I got it inside 30 seconds, and with an easier equation than Rachel:
    4 + 5 = 9
    9 x 25 = 425
    425 + 4 + 2 = 431

    4:50 ... Calling himself a "wasteland" here is why he won the final question at 45:15

    I know I would've personally joked like I was about to feel Fabio's sack. I mean..it was such an obvious moment to have played upon. That other one is mighty fine, too.

    And I thot I was so different with my purple Santa hat with the leopard print brim, but Johnny takes the cake with his black Santa suit. I’ve never seen one before & I’ll have to look it up later if I could even buy one.

    Can somebody explain the first Christmas choir in 1582 joke?

      It was a Christmas Carol & it was a cut on Carol Vooderman’s age again, that she was around that long ago.

    Have I mentioned that David O'Doherty really pisses me off?
    This game irritated me more than any other. The "party machine" is annoying enough, add on the stupid elf hat and then he enables cheating. Grrrrrr.

      His name is Raul (sp??), well on the show at least. His real name might be posted on IMDB tho.

    Why weren't Katherine Ryan's "MOLEST" or "FAMOUS" accepted as beating the five-letter word from the other team?

    • Ger
      Ger 5 months ago

      Technically, the contestants are only allowed to submit a single answer. So they may say "Have a 5 letter word or a risky 7", and they're generally required to decide which one they want to submit. Though, it may not seem like they're very strict on the rules (YAY Johnny Vegas for getting that last word).

    It's always jarring to me when I hear the F word on TV shows. Does anyone know if they bleep them out when they're on television in the UK?

    • BertyFromDK
      BertyFromDK 2 months ago +1

      I think they do censor a bit on the BBC, but on the independent channels there are few limits, as far as i can figure it.

    • brigmund freud
      brigmund freud 3 months ago

      @Lynn Giesbrecht This is an assumption but I'm guessing that you didn't read the previous comments. I wasn't asking anybody to get rid of them. I wasn't saying that it bothered me. It just surprised me because they don't speak like that on television in America. This was one of the 1st shows I've watched the from the UK and it was a tad shocking. It made it funnier in many ways. 😊

    • Lynn Giesbrecht
      Lynn Giesbrecht 3 months ago +1

      Since this is a video posted by someone who recorded it off tv, the logical and obvious answer is they don’t bleep the swears or there would be bleeping in this video!

    • brigmund freud
      brigmund freud 5 months ago

      @Gcat3000 absolutely!! 😊 That was my point. It didn't bother me but I don't hear it often. Wasn't trying to make a negative comment, just found it interesting.

    • Gcat3000
      Gcat3000 5 months ago +1

      You are just not used to it, I guess. Alan makes a good point in that our priorities get distorted by whatever media we are exposed to. The "f" word really isn't more harmful than a lot of the messages we're exposed to in US television. A lot of things seem jarring because we're simply not used to it, and yet a lot of negative stimuli is so normalized in our world that we think nothing of it. A red light goes off in our brains for relatively innocuous stuff, while a lot of damaging garbage gets processed and flies under the radar of our awareness.
