Gameshow Contestant Throws Glass And Knocks Podium Over After Losing

Gameshow Contestant Throws Glass And Knocks Podium Over After Losing

An Icelandic gameshow contestant did not take kindly to losing out on a question, tipping over their podium and throwing a glass to the floor.

The male contestant was taking part in the popular University Challenge-style show, called Gettu Betur, when he lost his cool... to put it mildly.

After the opposing team managed to get the point for a question, the player slammed his hand down on his podium and tipped it over.

He then grabbed a glass from another player's podium and smashed it on the ground, storming off set.

Unsurprisingly, the rest of the contestants and the show's host, Kristjana Arnarsdóttir, were pretty taken aback by what had just happened.

But it wasn't over. More violent noises could then be heard, with the unhappy player continuing to boot off backstage.

Thankfully, one viewer, who understands the language helped us all out by explaining how things took such a bizarre and quite sinister turn.

Writing on Twitter, they explained that the outburst happened after the opposing team got the correct answer a 'millisecond' before him.

They said: "The other team gives the correct answer which wins them the match, after apparently only being a millisecond or so ahead of them on the buzzer, and the presenter confirms it's the right answer.

"Either the presenter or the guy's team-mate says, 'Woah, what's going on?' when he does it and then the presenter says they have a result in the match and suggests going to commercials."

Probably a good idea, I'd say.

Now, while most people who appear on gameshows tend to be good sports in the face of defeat, taking it on the chin, there are always the exceptions that prove the rule.

And the most iconic of them all is Peter Marsh, who infamously appeared on an episode of Come Dine With Me, losing the plot when his nemesis Jane won the competition.

Those who have seen it will remember that Peter gave us the now-legendary line: "What a sad little life, Jane," the one that has been 'memed' to death.

For those who haven't had the pleasure, Peter basically made a pretty rubbish meal, was not the best host in the world, and then accused one of the fellow contestants of sabotaging his evening.

And when he found out that he was not taking home the prize money, he threw said person out of the house.

His much-quoted speech reads: "Dear lord, what a sad little life, Jane. You ruined my night completely so you can have the money, but I hope now you spend it on getting some lessons in grace and decorum, cos you have all the grace of a reversing dump truck without any tyres on."

"I don't get it," another contestant retorts.

"Well you wouldn't... there's nobody in there, love... So, Jane, take your money and get off my property."

Well, after stints working at the Manchester Evening News, the Accrington Observer and the Macclesfield Express, along with never setting foot in France, he realised the answer is surprisingly little.
