‘Ridiculously easy’ 1% Club question catches out 50% of British public
| Last updated
I think a lot of us would confess we are pros at game shows after getting an answer correct from the comfort of our sofa.
It is all so common for us to be shouting the answers with a brew in hand while the contestant in the hot seat struggles to come up with the correct answer.
But obviously, the pressure of being in a TV studio knowing you are going to be on the telly is nothing compared to being at home with the tea and biccies out.
The hit quiz show sees 100 members of the public put their common sense, logic, and intelligence to the test.
And then any contestant who correctly answers a question that just one percent of the nation got right wins a share of up to £100,000 cash.
Questions on the show end up circulating on social media after airing on ITV, with many users announcing whether they would have got said question right or wrong.
One particular question has been doing the rounds on TikTok as of late and has been described as 'ridiculously easy' despite being the question only 50 percent of the British public got right.
As read out by host Lee Mack, the question goes as follows: “What single letter should be added at the beginning of 8 to make it heavy?"
In a clip reposted to the @quiznuggets TikTok account, viewers were asked how they had done with the question.
If you haven't worked it out already, the answer is of course the letter 'W' - something the vast majority seemed to get correct in the comments.
"W. I got it before they started talking," one commenter claimed.
A second added: "W got it in a millisecond," while a third penned: "I believe it’s W then it would become weight."
Meanwhile, another TikTok user now fancies their chances on The 1% Club after seeing this type of question at the 50 percent mark on the show.
They wrote: "What does the winner get? millions? I'd be rich."
And a further TikTok user pretty much summed up the general consensus surrounding this question, as they wrote: "Got it before he finished saying the question, because I can read and that’s ridiculously easy. 50%?"
Did you get the answer correct?
