I wonder what the requirements were. "Ability to read essential" That's about it. What other requirements could there be? Perhaps in these times it would be helpful if the applicant were a member of the BAMELGBTQ+ community. Stammerers need not apply. Must be free for one hour 31 times each year. Plus a few more for Celebrity Mastermind. What is Clive Myrie being paid for this onerous, responsible and difficult job?

//Stammerers need not apply//
Thats me out then.
Got a stammer when worked up....

Can I make a claim?
I'd contact the BBC if you desperately need the answers to your questions.
I believe that, in line with most quiz shows, Mastermind is filmed over several weekends. As for a BAMELGBTQ+ "community", is that actually a thing?
its also good to have a sense of humour, comes with the territory.
Must always be capable of not repeating a correct answer arbitrarily. Humphries is a terrible quiz presenter.
he's been doing it for a long time however.
I was once in the audience of mastermind (claim to fame alert,,,I once nearly tripped Paxman up as I was sitting in the aisle seat, legs stretched across said aisle, as he was making his way upstairs for a sound check or something)
Would that count?
And it's high time he was replaced by a competent host.
What is about Clive Myrie that you object to OP?
well now they have replaced him, i have no idea how he will fare, but good luck i say
What do any of the questions put in the OP matter? "Man gets new role in company he already works for" isn't a big deal.
Sorry,
getting my quizes mixed up here...
Was in the mastermind audience once and then a few weeks later was in the UC audience (same studio) with paxman...
unless there's something alien about the man, Mozz.
Will they have to change to a white chair now?

I have no objection whatsoever to Clive Myrie, Chinajan. Good luck to him, I say. There has already been a thread here to the same effect. I just wanted to suggest that this job isn't very difficult and not worth the undoubtedly high pay that Mr Myrie will be getting for a few hours' work. For JimF, I ran BAME and LGBTQ+ together. As the job is sedentary, it wouldn't hurt the BBC's diversity factor if the next successful candidate were a wheelchair user too.
Suppose they could use Ronnie Corbett's old one.
Submit an FOI to the BBC if you really want to know.
Do you know what the job actually entails?
Maybe you should add that to your list of questions
"I wonder what the requirements were. "Ability to read essential" That's about it. What other requirements could there be?"
It's a lot more difficult that the experts make it look.
I recall seeing it being recorded at the old Granada studios in Manchester, one of the people showing us in told us that the same studio was used for Jeremy Kyle in the morning, 'a very different audience demographic!'
Never heard of this person but he ticks a lot of boxes!
