Glad someone else can see through it N.J..
Not sure what you’re getting at here, grumpy01. I saw your question earlier but didn’t answer until I’d seen the show. I’ve seen the show and ... erm.??
A) She wasn't sure if it was Maria Callas so went for Richard Nixon. How is that proof of it being scripted?

B) Why the Uncle Buck would it be scripted?
Question Author
Katie Dedham is a fan of classical music and will have known that it was Maria Callas.Furtherto this on Saturday evening Lizzie Webb and John Kettley when presented with an opposites question thought that the opposite to he hates me was She loves me by the Beatles.We are being conned here.Following on from New Judges comment a question will come up on the Chase celebrity and they’ll say “Oh I’ve just been reading his book.”

Sorry Katie Derham.
grumpy, with regard to your suggestion that the Celebrity Chases are scripted.Why on earth would any celebrity agree to a script that makes them losers?
I've been in the audience at celebrity recordings of The Chase and Pointless.

I can assure you they are not scripted.
I know I'm not of the brightest sometimes. I also said "She loves me" and I think I a lot of other people did too
Hopkirk, I'm interested that you've been in the audience. How big are the picture clues, particularly when there is a board with a lot of faces? I think I'd struggle to see them at that distance, it's bad enough on the TV if they're not clear photos.
They have a 15min break in filming to study those picture boards. (on Pointless anyway)
Most celebrity quizzes are scripted, rehearsed and then edited down from 2hrs of filming.
Sorry for the delay, spicerack. Thanks.
what possible purpose is there to scripting? I don't buy it, Ocam's razor and all that. I know it's a human condition to invent conspiracy theories everywhere but I can't see why it would scripted what possible purpose could that serve?
they have celebrity audiences too, Hopkirk?
Hopkirks a bit shy and wouldn't let on that he's a bigger star amongst common and popular 'stars'
I believe hoppy. I don't know for a fact but I cannot see any possible reason to script/fix a quiz show, celeb or not, it serves no purpose. People are thick/bright on their own accord and coincidences do occur.
arksided. perhaps hoppy is really Bradley Walsh!
Lol, wouldn't that be a turn up for the books. I've chatted to Hoppy for over ten years on here and sure he won't mind me letting on that has actually being on 15-1 when William G Stewart was still with us.
My favourite chase question: "Who was the second man on the moon?" - "Buzz light year" - they must have had to stop filming, Brad was wetting himself!
you mean it wasn't Buzz lightyear :-)

I've seen that episode, it is funny when Bradley loses it.
