I decided to sit down and watch Sky One’s constantly advertised “Are you smarter than a 10 year old?”, and within a few minutes it really annoyed me.
The show is really slow paced, there are no other competitors, the constant grating soundtrack “are you smarter than a 10 year old” sung by kids is really, really annoying.
But there’s one thing that I really don’t get about this game show.
Lets say your a contestant on this game show. You’ve just got up to £2,000 or whatever and you feel unsure about the next question and so you quit there and then. Congratulations, you’ve won £2 grand.
But don’t celebrate just yet.
You have to look in the camera and say “I’m not smarter than a 10 year old” Why? – Because you didn’t get up to £250k!
But wait a minute. You’ve won 2 grand. The kids win nothing, nada, not a sausage.
So, doesn’t the fact you’ve won 2 grand make you smarter than a 10 year old?
I don’t get this TV game show.
