Jeremy Vine hosts as fifteen of the most successful TV quizzers in the country battle it out to see who is the quizziest of them all in a format which isn’t just 15-to-1 but does feature our contestants being whittled down to one winner across 90 minutes.
Quizmaster, a 90-minute peak time special, sees 15 previous contestants on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, Mastermind, The Chase, Fifteen to One and University Challenge compete in a high-stakes battle to become ultimate quiz champion.
My guess is ITV have rather overstated the stakes here rather given that there appears to be no real prize (just as it ever was in Serious Quiz Land, I suppose). It is possibly worth pointing out that this sort of thing has been tried before and not really worked out, so we’ll see if this bucks the trend – it might be something that would benefit from some US style glitz and glamour. Let’s see! Let us know what you think in the comments.
