Channel 4 has commissioned The Answer Trap, a brand-new list-based quiz format for Daytime. The series sees two teams play against each other to secure as much prize money as they can.
Host Anita Rani will challenge the teams to place answers from a series of lists into their relevant categories. However not all the answers belong in the categories, some are devilish decoys - Answer Traps.
The Answer Traps have been set by iconic quizzers Bobby Seagull and Frank Paul, with the brainiacs competing to see who can catch the most players in their traps.
If the teams can assign the answers to the correct categories and avoid the traps, they get the opportunity to play for a £10,000 jackpot on the final question.
Anita said: “For as long as I can remember I have loved all the classic C4 daytime quizzes, I am actually quite obsessed with them! To be the host of their latest format is a dream come true and I cannot wait to welcome you all to The Answer Trap.”
Jo Street, Head of Channel 4 Daytime and Features, said: “I’m chuffed to bits that Channel 4 is announcing another smart woman at the helm of a brilliant quiz show. I hope Anita will have a lot of fun with Bobby and Frank and the audience will enjoy playing along and avoiding their pesky traps!”
Jayne Stanger, commissioning editor, Daytime and Features, for Channel 4, said: “Channel 4 has a great history of popular daytime quizzes that our viewers love to play along with. The Answer Trap is a fantastic new format and I’m thrilled the excellent Anita Rani is joining our line-up of strong and brilliant women on Channel 4.”
