Alex Trelinski: What's the capital of Italy?
Contestant: France.
Trelinski: France is another country. Try again.
Contestant: Oh, um, Benidorm.
Trelinski: Wrong, sorry, let's try another question. In which country is the Parthenon?
Contestant: Sorry, I don't know.
Trelinski: Just guess a country then.
Contestant: Paris.

From time to time ex-big brother contestants appear in tv quiz shows,suggesting that they are thick would be a compliment

There used to be a quiz program on BBC Radio Merseyside called "Give Us A Clue". I am convinced that the program makers recruited the thickest people they could find as long as they were the "Gabby" type. I must admit it made for some funny programs because the presenters, one of whom was Billy Butler, were able to play the contestants along some weird and wonderful pathways to get the required answers. I think they still sell lots of CD's of recordings of those programs.

I was once dragged up on stage to compete in a quiz in front of about 500 people. I'm usually good at quizzes when I'm watching tele. Well I have to say that right from the off my brain turned to mince and was useless. Looking back on the twenty or so questions I was asked, I would normally get about 16-17, I got 4. I've no doubt all the smart alecs win the audience were thinking, "what a thickie".

Many years ago a friend of mine entered the Mastermind competition. His first chosen subject was English political history between certain dates, as the questions began he became aware that the question compilers has miss-read his dates, consequently he scored only 2 points in that round.

After complaining he was told that the session could not be re-recorded and he would have to re-apply next year! He did suffer a lot of embarrasment as a result of his performance. He did not re-apply.
