The Dumbest Contestants On A Game Show Ever

I have never been a big fan of Million Dollar Drop, but I think that has more to do with the game format itself more than anything else. It is still big in the UK though and now one couple from their version of the show can congratulate themselves on being crowned the dumbest contestants ever on a game show. This is the equivalent of missing the first question on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. After the couple missed the question, Ricky Gervais begged producers to not let the clip be shown to the rest of the world because the couple are such idiots.

Here is the question.

"Justin Timberlake won an award in October this year for helping to protect what?"

A."friends with benefits"
B."trouser snakes"
C."the environment"
D. "sexy backs"

They guessed Friends with benefits. Here is the video.

The couple that were on straight after them did exactly the same thing and messed up on the first question ;D

there is a reason they don't cast smart people for game shows.

Some people exist to make the rest of us feel better about ourselves. They seem to like to appear on television.

It had aired on FOX at the beginning of the year, but it since been cancelled

"Friends with Benefits" was such a bad movie that it isn't implausible that he would win an award for protecting it. Wait a minute, it is, LOL.

I could see where someone could be thrown off by that question, but then again, I'm dumb.

Davina McCall, iconic hostess of Big Brother UK, chose not to do the new season, and THIS is what she is doing now? Oh dear.
