The question that brought down the contestant I watched, had to do with a well-known fairytale, and by whom the young maiden became pregnant. The contestant went thru all the choices aloud, explaining each character's story-line in the fairytale .. and she got it wrong anyway. I got it right .. all in my head without saying a word!

I found it beyond infuriating .. but I guess I'd be boring; Chris Harrison would read the question & choices .. and I'd just say what I thought the answer was!


 

I enjoy the show but find the same things infuriating as you do.

 

What really worries me about what I see on the show is how little common knowledge is possessed by the "younger" generation. OMG, I've become my dad.... I am sure he said that about us 60's kids.

 

I know people miss question because it is not about their culture, their generation, or their interests but that isn't what I'm talking about.

 

These young contestants have no clue about simple questions that I thought should be in EVERYONE'S MEMORY BANKS, in their brains, by their age.

 

It doesn't seem to occur with older contestants and older contestants seem to get further in the game. Maybe that's why they don't have too many older contestants. Too much money would exit the door..

I never really watched it, until it was on while I was at the car dealer for service last week. I guess the producers "coach" the contestants, because I surely don't "think out loud", much less walk thru my entire thought process for everyone to hear!
