Could you win 'Pointless'?

Test yourself with real questions from the BBC show

Could you win 'Pointless'?
Tom Victor
14 August 2017

If you’ve ever found yourself at home at tea-time and flicked on the TV, you’ve probably come across Pointless.

The show, hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman, tests contestants on their ability to find obscure answers.

Each round, they are given a category which has been put to 100 members of the public. Their task is to guess an answer which none of those members of the public were able to name.

The following questions are all real questions from episodes of the BBC show – some from the early rounds and some from the final jackpot round. We have picked all of them from the Pointless Archive blog, or from episodes still available on the BBC iPlayer at the time of writing.

Your task is to pick out the pointless answer from the three options. Go!
