Game show prizes


#1

Following on from the Jim Bowen thread, what were/are the best and worst game show prizes?

Bruce’s Price is Right was generally a very high calibre.


#2

No offence to the countdowners who clearly are in it for the endless coke and groupies backstage
But a fucking teapot
fuck off


#3

A CUDDLY TOY


#4

Think I could very happily get to £64k in Millionaire and bow out respectfully. Mate of mine won Pointless and only got £500. Spent it in a week.

Think I’d rather have the kudos of a University Challenge/Mastermind/Only Connect prize over a financial reward.

Haha just fucking kidding


#5

Agreed on price is right.


#6

making an oxbridge lad cry would be an excellent prize tbf


#7

£64k is a decent level in terms of general knowledge I think. Obviously you might get something you just don’t know before that stage, but you’d be looking to muddle through with your lifelines if that was the case.


#8

FULL BOARD

BOTTLES OF VODKA

FREQUENTED BY THE INTERNATIONAL JETSET


#9

I remember thinking the cash on Catchphrase was pretty good and then that twat Tarrant came along.


#10

Years ago one of my cousins was on Play Your Cards Right with Brucey and won a shitload of largely useless stuff like quad bikes (not much good to him living in the middle of Bradford). He sold it all.


#11

I’d be such an awful winner. up on the table, shirt off swinging it round my head shouting “get it right fuckin up ye”


#12

Was genuinely thinking about signing up for the new series before they announced Clarkson.

The friend for phone a friend presumably has to be in the studio, locked away from resources this day and age? When I was a kid I always thought the show was live and they were home,furiously flicking through the Encyclopedia Britannica


#13

Not a game show, but the gadget show offered a preposterously large haul in its prize draw.


#14

Clarkson? New series? What the hell is this?


#15

probably produce two cans of bud and go full stone cold


#16

#17

chuck them at paxman


#18

Blind date, take me out etc. The prize being love.


#19

And that’s why you were never asked back on Are You Smarter Than A 12 Year Old?.
