Mastermind 2016: Heat 2

The various mental and facial preparations take place for Heat 2

The second heat of this year’s Mastermind competition was held on Friday 5th February.

As usual, each person must choose a special subject on which to answer questions for ninety seconds and this is followed by a general knowledge round where they answer questions for two minutes.

Well done to Lochie on securing a place in the final which takes place in March.

Rebekah may also be in the final depending on scores in the next two heats.

The answer's on it's way through the ectoplasmic ether ..... yes, I have it .... ... or maybe not!

Well, that's not a very easy question, is it? You'd better not have any more like that up your sleeve. Oh, you're so kind, QM. I knew the answer to that one!

OMG! This competition is a bit harder than I thought. Why did I say I knew so much about Ferraris? The capital of where? Oh, really! So embarrassing, so embarrassing!

When I get nervous I stroke my imaginary puppy! That's the 4th seriously unanswerable question you've asked in a row. Give me a break!

Ooops. Gotta stifle an impending yawn ... ... oh, dear. Hard questions make me soporific.

Um ... I thought I had signed up for Masterchef? I've got one right - and it's a science one, Mr Peek! Oooh, that cough doesn't sound good at all, QM. Shall we postpone the questioning?
