As I type this Amitabh Bachchan is hosting KBC2 in a natty black suit, mismatched red hair and salt and pepper beard and lots of charm. Sitting across from him is Mr.Contestant. For Rs. 20,000 the question is
Which of these takes 365.242 days to complete?
A Earth’s revolution
B Earth’s rotation
C Sun’s rotation
D Sun’s revolution
Now after humming and hawing for a very long time Mr Contestant decides to ask the audience.
The audience takes 10 seconds to vote for options B A C in that order.
Mr Contestant goes for option A. The Big B does his Lock-kiya jaye routine and Mr C gets nervous and says ‘No no I will use 50-50’. The Computer then gets rid of options B and D and our dear contestant is forced to remember basic school-level physics.
Faced with Earth’s revolution and Sun’s rotation as options Mr Contestant is still unsure of the answer and opts to call a friend.
His friend after demanding that he gets Rs. 15,000 of his friends earnings for providing the winning answer, takes his own sweet time to offer C as the answer. (showing he fully deserves the money)
This only goes to prove that the people invited to participate in game shows (and their friends) have about the same IQ as Priyanka Chopra did on the night she won Ms. World (Dead sweety dead! Mother Teresa is DEAD)
And here is further proof that game show contestants will never win a Nobel Prize and will probably lose out to chimps as volunteers in brain research programs. (‘No No ex game show contestant. Touch your nose. Not your ass')

Anne Robinson (evil host) Which illness is named after it’s high temperature and red skin colouration?
Contestant Yellow fever
And some more proof…
The Richard Allison Show, radio 2
Richard Allison Which international brand shares its name with the Greek goddess of victory?
Contestant Erm… Kelloggs?
Oh and for those of you wondering Mr Contestant finally chose option A, won the 20 grand only to crash out 10 minutes later.
