We can't wait for HYBPA to kick off tonight! What can we expect this season?
T: Well, we’re no longer a quiz show - we’re now a “social experiment”. There may also be a Lego segment. Apart from that - business as usual.
Who are some of the guests we can look forward to seeing this time around?
T: All our regulars will be back, along with Sam Pang (who it turns out I am contractually obliged to put up with).
With so many hilarious guests on the show, how hard is it to maintain composure while everyone is cracking jokes?
T: I have a simple technique where I try and concentrate on something really tragic. Like the One Nation election campaign...
Who has been your favourite guest so far? T: I always enjoy having evictees from 'The Bachelor' come on as Guest Quizmasters. As if it was bad enough not getting a rose - they now have to put up with us!
Have there ever been jokes that were too racy to air on TV?
T: Yes! But, fortunately, we are able to edit these out. Perhaps we could have a special “up-late” edition one day?
If you could pick anyone in the world to be a guest quizmaster for an episode, who would it be and why? T: His Royal Highness Prince Phillip. He’s got a renowned sense of humour and I believe he still drives so we wouldn’t have to arrange a car.
If you could be on any other 10 show, what would it be?
T: I’d love a week or two on 'Bachelor in Paradise'. But I’d probably have to clear it with my wife first...
