    Someone will probably go through the questions of this revival and compare them with 20 years ago and the number of correct answers to see if people are getting more stupid.

    OMG??? That was really unlucky to go out there.

    I wouldn’t have got Nike either. Tough enough question for that level.

    I think maybe they probably should!

    I thought nike was fairly well known.

    I would not have known the vitamin B question, she did not seem to know herself so was confused why she went for it. -but she had used the 50/50. I would not have trusted the audience and maybe she knew her phone a friend was unlikely to know.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,242 ✭✭✭✭ iamwhoiam


    I think this lot were way too hasty . Jumping at answers


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,967 ✭✭✭✭ HeidiHeidi


    Old-style Millionaire (celebrity couples, I've seen it before unfortunately) on Challenge now, if anyone wants to compare presenting styles!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,086 ✭✭✭✭ Harry Palmr


    Something that stood out about the previous era was just how very white it was, there were hardly more than a handful of Asian or Black contestants for whatever reason so will that change at all.

    I thought that was very entertaining to be fair. Some of those early questions were far too difficult or maybe I'm just getting dumber.

    Clarkson did well I thought. I like that he was taking the piss out of the contestants and not just aping Chris Tarrant's style of presenting.

    I'll take a guess that the contestants for Fastest Finger First are picked at random from the show's production team before they're allowed permission to go on the set. It is far less of a workload this time as they are only 6 seats filled for that round instead of 10. It saves a good bit of money for the production team & ITV to do that.

    Well I was shouting answers at the screen, so in my eyes the show is good and it's back.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,659 ✭✭✭ dulpit


    I enjoyed it. Questions seemed a little bit harder at the lower values. Contestants were rubbish though.. I liked Clarkson. Good to have it for the week anyway...

    TV3 continuity announcer said that it's live - I guess it's not though?


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,120 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    Clarkson done ok but I think he should not be taking the piss out of the contestants and he should be nicer to them. This is not TG it is a game show. I do think the first contestant was very unlucky with questions he got but your one was silly not to use some of her lifelines and should not have guessed if she was not 100 percent sure of the answer. She was doing good up to that point. When is the next episode on is it every Saturday?


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,449 ✭✭✭✭ Alf Veedersane


    I thought Clarkson was being a bit of a prick. Trying to seem clever.

    He took the piss out of the first lad's general knowledge and when he was asked he had a relatively unconvincing argument

    Welcome to 2018


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,551 ✭✭✭ dublinman1990


    The show is not broadcast live. It was definitely pre-recorded in studio weeks before it's broadcast on ITV/UTV & TV3.

    I was watching it on record and I have to agree Clarkson did take the p out of the first contestant far too much and came across as a prick. I suppose that's Clarkson's personality he's just a prick. It becomes cringe then though and that's not good. Overall I like the show though it's the concept that's great no matter what asshat hosts it it's a good show. I'd like to see Chris Tarrant or Gaybo host it again but unfortunately that isn't going to happen so this is what we got.

    Putting his own twist on it, it's Clarkson. No point in trying to be Tarrant. But it's 2018 and all that

    Never liked Clarkson but I think he's been a super addition

    Really enjoyed it! I'm surprised they've gone back to the 5 questions pre £1000 though and they're definitely tougher than before

    Probably trying to give out as little money as possible :D
