I don’t often post about anything so trivial, but really? The Mastermind final?
A woman who got 12 points in the 1st round (mid-table). A man who got 15 points in the 1st round (top scorer).
After the general knowledge, this woman was on 29, while the bloke managed 26.
For 4 of the 6 other finalists, I probably got about 30% of their general knowledge questions. For matey I got >50%. For the “winner”’s questions I got 16/17. So did the OH.
So I surmise that this Mastermind final was a total stitch-up. To get 17 points from 2.5mins of general knowledge in the final is absurd. Short, easy questions for one contestant out of 6.
This woman has won Mastermind on her 4th attempt, having made it to the semi-finals 3 times, so I’m not saying she’s a dummy by any stretch, but really… Not a moral victory. It was a gift, and it stinks to high heaven.
