[snip]I have no objection to Kevin, Pat, Barry, Chris or Judith. Kevin just gets straight to the point with his answers - and when on the odd occasion he says he doesn't know and will have to go with a guess - you just know he's telling the truth..
That's the nub of it for me, too.... and I'd definitely have Kevin on my pub quiz team any day of the week.

Me too! You get the feeling that if he were on your team (and you got a question wrong) he'd just say ... 'ah well ... it is just a game ... its not a matter of life or death'. Whereas - if you were to do the same and you were on Daphne's team ... she'd beat you to death with her broomstick!

There was an Eggheads team on Only Connect the other night, made up of Pat Barry and Chris, and they got pumped. Really made my night. Will be on iPlayer.
While they did lose in the end, they were dead level going into the last round, in other words, after the 3 rounds peculiar to Only Connect and before a bog standard crosswordy type word game.

Going back to the original title of this thread, isn't it the case that many posters on here feel inferior because Daphne and the other Eggheads have a fund of general knowledge which is far in excess of theirs.
If it was merely "general" knowledge they wouldn't have much of an edge at all, it's all the obscure trivia they mug up on that wins them the quizzes.

I can't bear her. It's her wobbly voice that is most annoying.

I'd cross the street to avoid any of the Eggheads team. Hell, I'd emigrate to Tierra del Fuego to avoid any of the Eggheads team. They have a certain look about them...

I enjoy quiz shows but when Daphne is on I cannot bear Eggheads. When she appears I cannot help but yell 'oh the effin' Care Bear is on, switch over'.

Love Kevin and the rest.

I absolutely love it whenever she does that, can't stand the woman. Her attitude and the odious CJ's are mocking and bad sportsmanship. Why do the others put up with them?

Programmes like Eggheads (and Countdown) are obviously designed to be background wallpaper in Care Homes.

I shouldnt laugh but:
Daphne is very annoying, the way she pretends to not know an answer, takes a 'guess' and she knows it

I would just like to say I have met Kevin ( he wiped the floor with me on Sale Of The Century ) & you could not meet a more down to earth or nicer man.

Yep, made me laugh out loud too, much louder than was really necessary, tbh But I can't abide her or her 'lucky guessing'.

I'll tell you who I do utterly loathe though, and that's Jeremy Vine. I simply cannot stand his smug, smarmy, oily character and recently he doesn't seem able to keep his mouth shut.

I agree. I wish someone would gve him a new script. He's also rather dense. His pronunciation of many words is hilarious.
