How dim is that woman? This is embarrassing.
She certainly wasn't dim. She sailed through into the final.

It was unfortunate she got the wrong questions for her. Neither did the counters fall right for her in the final round.

The PHD she is doing is in Biology. That's hardly going to help with general knowledge questions.

Even so she won 3050. Well done Heather.

Guilty as charged.

Actually I'm just someone who has watched Tipping Point for some time and I thought Heather was the first person in a long time who got the tactics for the game spot on.

She passed at the right time in the first round. If she'd had the the right subjects for her in the final round she could have done even better.

I sometimes wonder if some of the contestants have actually seen the show on TV beforehand. Yesterday's contestants, for example, chose to drop counters in the zone for the first time when they should have known better. If they'd seen the show previously they would know that that more often than not nothing drops over the tipping points until a few counters have been dropped in the zones.

It's clearly evident the show's producers lay out the counters on the machine making it almost impossible for them to drop over the tipping point until they have been pushed closer together by a couple of counters in each zone.

I'd fallen asleep & woken up about 10 mins in, I thought may be I was hallucinating.

I want to apply to go on this show - may be I should dress up like Elizabeth the 1st.

I can't remember whether I've seen today's edition before or not but I'm enjoying it because all three 'celebs' are quite bright. It makes a change!

Why not. The contestants seem a bit batty and no nothing about anything

Not sure if there is a new series starting on Monday as they repeated the celeb shows last week but the tv info thingy does not say if it is a new series

I think the show has aged little Ben quite a bit since it started

It doesn't seem right that, the man who thought the princes in the tower were kept at Alcatraz, ended up walking away with 10k.

I agree. It was a woeful answer. It didn't help that the other contestant, Diane, didn't know the answer either.

The idiot was lucky all the way through.

In the final round I believe he guessed every answer.
He must have landed from Mars, yesterday.

It's usually the case that the prats win the big money.

I hope he's first to go, I have enough of him already.. Where do they find these so called celebrities?

The program is a repeat.

I couldn't agree more. I'm glad to see the back of him.

You would think that as this programme was for charity that they would find people who can actually answer a few simple questions rather than play about.

I just can't stand the overly camp, OTT "me me me" thing he has going on.

I never watch any sort of these game programmes, but I'm impressed that they could make one out of the "addictive for some" arcade game, "Penny Falls."
