Tipping Point

It does exactly what it says on the tin. If it's not about football then it belongs in here for discussion. Once again we ask that you respect your fellow posters.

Tipping Point

Unread post by Pegojack »

More evidence for my theory that they screen potential contestants on Tipping Point to filter out anyone with an IQ over 20.
Bloke was just asked "teak, mahogany and bolsa are types of which natural material?". "Pass".
FFS.

PS Ben Shepherd should have said "and your head is made of it... "

Just caught the last two mins with the winner unwilling to gamble 2.8k for the 10 with three discs, christ i could have blown the star over the edge needless to say when they dropped the disc the first one was enough to tip it over.

More thickos on today's programme.

BEN - "From which fossil fuel is petrol derived in a process called fractional distillation?"

Contestant - "Well let's think what fossil fuels I know....coal....oil....gas...I'm going to say gas".

FFS

Yeah, that's why the price of petrol goes up in the filling station when the price of oil rises, you dumb feck.....

If the jackpot counter falls to the left at the very top then the vast majority of the counters won tend to go the right, or vice versa, so I have my suspicions.

A question on today's Tipping Point was...'Which former Conservative Party leader is often known by the initials IDS?'...

The plum who answered it said...'Margaret Thatcher'.

🤔😕😵

This thread is certainly better than the actual programme.

As much as it's a cash cow for him, there must be times when Ben Shepherd must want to chuck it all in rather than constantly feign excitement at this shambles.

Given recent BLM protests, I'm surprised the programme's title hasn't come in for a little bit of hammer.

Lol, I saw that one Bryn! Not as good as yesterday though.

"Name an American state that starts and ends with the letter A"

Contestant: "Florida"

Feck me, and we let these people vote on Brexit.

When I used to watch it I noticed that the big counter would fall one way and most, if not all, of the other counters would then fall the other way.

They're looking for contestants at the moment.
