A student has shot to fame after appearing on the BBC One game show, Pointless. Ollie Gibbs, a second-year Physics student, faced formidable questioning from presenters Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman on January 25.
Gibbs paired up with his mother Claire to battle through rounds of questions that ranged from cinema knowledge to Jamaican trivia.
The well-known daytime quiz show challenges competitors to provide obscure answers to questions of general knowledge; the less common, the better. Those who answer with items unheard of by the hundred members of the public surveyed before the quiz, gain the most points.
Gibbs performed well, before unfortunately finding his trivia skills trumped by a particularly fiendish conundrum on Steve Carell films.
