  1. @Stylin_and_Profilin up until the early 1990's the maximum cash prize on a quiz show was £6,000 due to the Broadcasting Act. Hence why a lot of the 70s and 80s gameshows had prizes instead of cash (Generation Game, Sale of the Century, 321, Bullseye etc).

    When that legislation was repealed there was a surge of gameshows which offered bigger prizes like Play Your Cards Right and Catchphrase. The big change was when Millionaire hit the screens then other channels followed suit with humongous prizes.

    The main reasons why Eggheads and Pointless has such low prizes in comparison is that they are a daily quizshow so the budget is a lot less than the weekly primetime gameshows and the BBC have reduced the prizes after a scandal a few years ago when a BBC radio contest was found to be fixed which stopped competitions for quite a while. Back in the day you won premium bonds for picking goal of the month on MotD and that has not been reinstated. 

    Gameshows and quizshows aren't regulated by the Gambling Commission as the contestants aren't risking their own money. It is regulated by OFCOM.

    Surely that means getting the ball rolling on next year's Royal Rumble Lottery running because wasn't the rule @Glenryck Pilchards made if a number has been drawn, you can't choose it.

    I'm guessing the male runner up would get it instead.

    I refrained comment on this as I wanted to see who would potentially win the Mixed Match Challenge before I made a decision. After seeing who is in the final at TLC if you are daft enough to pick number 30, knock yourself out.

  6. 42600-1-voss.farming-electric-fence-ropeIn all seriousness though have you considered putting a deadbolt at the top of her bedroom door? 

    My 18 month old lad has started to do his Ultimate Warrior shaking the top rope impression with the baby gate and the little git managed to pull one side off. Fortunately no injuries but I've wrenched the screws as tight as can be so it won't happen again

  8. I am sure for the majority of contestants that is correct @Astro Hollywood but I was informed a few months ago that it is not always the case. 

    When David Haye was in the jungle he had in his contract that he must eat 2000 calories a day, otherwise it could hamper his career in boxing (lolz I know) as it would take months to get back in ring-shape. So they snook in food for The Hayemaker. If they are willing to give allowances for him, they will do it for others too.


    I won't say who my source is but lets just say that they are a colleague of a current contestant.

  11. Funny that this topic should come up, as I am actually appearing on mine and @PowerButchi's favourite quiz show on the current series of Fifteen to One. I haven't been given an exact date yet when it will be broadcast but it should be mid-December. 

    I currently have applications in for !mpossible, Cash Trapped and Millionaire, so fingers crossed! 

    But if I could have a go on any game show of all time it would be Nickelodeon's Guts. I always wanted to hoist the glow in the dark trophy above my head

  14. When you go to the pub and ask for a Coke and they reply "Is Pepsi alright?" 

    Of course it fucking is just pour me a bloody drink. Even worse some of the chain pubs now don't do full fat Coke or Pepsi now due to the sugar tax. For some ungodly reason Diet and Zero sugar versions of Cola give me crippling wind and I refuse to drink them because of it, so if other pubs are going to continue this trend they are only going to encourage me to drink drive.

    Unfortunately I have to give up my first boy Murray as he cannot be trusted with my one year old. Earlier this morning he snarled and went for my son and slightly caught his cheek. This is the second incident in the space of three months and I cannot risk a third time happening. 

    It is with a really heavy heart that we have to do this. He is a great placid dog normally, but cannot cope with a boisterous toddler. I am hoping a member of the family or a close friend can take him in, if not he will have to go back to The Dog's Trust. We got him as a two year old in 2010 and it is going to be really weird not to have him about, but I don't want my little one to be scared of dogs or worse to be disfigured for life.
