One more sleep until I take on the Eggheads with the help of Catherine (from the TEAM WITH NO NAME) who comes to the Reverie, plus various quiz geniuses from the Glasgow days.
The Eggheads die tomorrow morning round about 9am in a Glasgow TV studio, so remember them fondly: the ‘jolly’ one, the glaikit one, the slimy one, the other one and the bird.
Everyone has their own favourite Egghead. CJ de Mooi seems particularly well-liked whenever I bring the subject up.
There are six in the team (five on screen plus a reserve) and the most amount of money ever won is £75,000. If we win that, it’ll be twelve and a half grand each which would buy you a house in the 1970s but makes for a decent holiday now.
However, the prize fund on the show is based on rollovers (+ £1000 every time the Eggheads win), so if they lose the show prior to ours, we’ll be playing for £166.67 each.
No matter – the point is we have a system and we’re going to beat them!
Bring it on!
