ITV rigged(?) TV game show

Was watching a rerun of a show called rebound on ITV last night and one of the questions was dodgy asf

How the format works is they show three answer and start the clock (a line they have to push back in this case) and then show the question

Here’s the question that’s dodgy

Choice of answers

Mr. Bean, Basil Brush, Fawlty Towers

Question: Red Austin

The obvious answer is Fawlty towers here, where he kept hitting the car with a fallen branch, but in the early episodes of Mr. Bean, Bean drove a red Austin Mini!

So the two people that chose the “incorrect” answer were actually correct and it changed the outcome of who won the show

Actually it was Orange and only in the first episode, afaik all the rest were lime green with a black bonnet, but I can see where you are coming from.

Red Austin appears on screen and the host then said something like. who would you associate with a red Austin

The correct answer was revealed as Fawlty Towers

Yeah but that is an Austin 1100 or 1300 by the looks of it and you would have referred to it as an Austin 1100/1300.

Mr. Bean's Mini would have just been referred to as a Mini.

Anyways does it matter, it's not a current quiz show is it?

The mini in the pilot episode was a morris mini not an austin mini. and it wasn't red. and even if it had been an austin mini nobody would ever refer to it as an austin. they would just call it a mini
