The ABSOLUTE POWER of the UKGameshows.com/Bother’s Bar Poll of the Year, fresh from topping the table as host of The Answer Trap, Anita Rani has been announced as host of Millionaire Spin-off Fastest Finger First.
Fastest Finger First, according to Variety, features five contestants facing off in FFF questions to earn the opportunity to climb the question ladder, the winners get fast tracked to the Hot Seat on Millionaire itself.
It’s kind of a neat idea, like how the Spanish aired a daily version of The Money Drop whose winners got to play for the big money in primetime. My only potential issue is that already having been vetted in a lengthy quiz, is Millionaire all of a sudden just going to be full of professionals winning £64,000 and walking away? Are we going to lose the unpredictability and variety of outcome, which Clarkson Millionaire was (initially at least) quite good at? We’ll find out in due course.
