Is That Your Final Answer? is a celebration of the most jaw-droppingly stupid, embarrassing and unforgettably hilarious answers given by contestants on television and radio quiz shows.
We’ve all been there: you’re asked a question at a special event or work presentation; you have to say something, think fast, say anything! So you blurt out the first thing that comes in to your head, which turns out to be something idiotic, embarrassing or just plain wrong. So, imagine how much more intense that sense of panic must be if you are on a TV quiz show, under the bright lights, with a camera pointing at you and the studio audience giggling at your discomfort. Or live on the radio, with your foolish words being broadcast to everyone you know ?
Like the contestant who, asked ‘Which member of the crow family native to the UK has a bare face?‘ answered ‘Russell.’ Or another who, asked ‘What might a blind date conveniently forget to mention about himself,’ answered ‘He’s blind!’
One of the great pleasures of watching a quiz show is sitting smugly at home, shouting answers at the television and savouring the brain fades and stunned reactions that are celebrated in this book. So, sit back and enjoy the wonderful laughs to be found within – and perhaps spare a thought for the poor individuals who have suffered the excruciating embarrassment of actually having uttered them!
