Do you like to read, love quizzes and want an incredible experience? If so, you might have what it takes to become the next Mastermind champion!
Here’s a Q&A with former contestant Mohan to give you the inside track on what it’s like to sit in the iconic black chair…
Why did you apply for Mastermind?
I simply wanted to see how I did on the best quiz out there. I was also always transfixed by the atmosphere of the programme and, of course, that incredible theme tune.
Was appearing on the programme any different from what you expected?
Broadly speaking I would say not. I expected it to be an incredible experience and that is exactly what it was. I expected to get goose bumps sitting in that chair and that’s exactly what happened! What I did find a little surprising is that I was less nervous when I was actually in the chair.
Describe your experience as a contestant on Mastermind?
Incredible, just incredible – the best experience I’d had since the birth of my daughter. That is absolutely no exaggeration. Every step has a fond memory.
How much fun did you have revising for your chosen subject?
Huge fun! I deliberately picked subjects I was passionate about because, although I had my eye on the prize, I wanted the whole experience to be fun.
How did Mastermind change your life?
Much as I love quizzing, I never felt that I was actually that good at it, but I got to the Grand Final of Mastermind. Nuff said.
