Barbara Thompson a serial quizzer did not get one question wrong in the Grand Final yet won nothing. Surely the three who make the final should all get prize money. As there were 40 X one hour programmes that is a very poor amount for prize money even Eggheads pays £1000 for an a half hour prog. and Pointless the same for a 45 min show. Probably the hardest quiz to win with the poorest of prize money

Man up, quiz on, don't like it, don't enter.
I don't agree she must have avoided answering questions when she had control. ie nominating rather than question, failed to knock the others out, bad tactics in the final as all three will be good quizzers so a contestant can only win by answering a lot more than nominating, she gave up control too easily..
Anyone applying to take part in 15 to 1 knows that it is a quick-fire quiz where the questions are slightly more stiff than many other TV quiz shows and there are no cheesey gimmicks to hide behind......and that there is no prize money to be won; just the glory of being the last contestant standing.

JTH, there is a £40K prize at the end of every series.
Really??
Has that always been the case?
"I don't agree she must have avoided answering questions when she had control. i.e. nominating rather than question"

Not in the grand final, where all questions are on the buzzer - there is no nominating.


"and that there is no prize money to be won; just the glory of being the last contestant standing"

Apart from the fact that the last contestant standing in the grand final goes home with £40,000.
The original series had a gift as the prize for the ultimate winner and £40,000 was introduced when it returnt to tv in 2014.
Everyone knows the rules when they enter. So, yes, it is fair.
And as for the runner-up not getting a single question wrong in the grand final, that's only half of it - she clearly forgot to get more right than the winner.
What is it, primary school where everybody gets a prize?

Boo hoo.
JtH: I think they started giving out prize money in the revived series, ie since Sandi Toksvig started hosting. I was quite surprised as well when I found out. But imo I don't think the serious quizzers are entering for the money anyway.
When I did Fifteen-to-One, the prize for the Grand Final I was in was a piece of either Greek or Roman pottery - it was more to do with the kudos of winning. I didn't see this programme (cannot STAND Sandi Toksvig), but I assume Barbara Thompson wasn't quick enough on the buzzer? If so, been there, done that!
