I’m pretty sure I answered every one of John Wharton’s general knowledge questions on last Friday’s Mastermind. I’ve now just scored 29 points on the BBC’s online Mastermind quiz (though they give you multiple choice answers). Does the Beeb use these cheap tricks to lure you into entering, then mug you on the night?
Whatever, they might have snagged another sucker. The application form requires you to choose four specialist subjects; this is a struggle. Better to put ‘list four topics you wouldn’t mind spending hours researching’.
*Update: 4 out of 10 on The Economist’s Well Red quiz. Probably a fairer reflection.
