Have just googled, the lady was en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoe_Hardman and presents take me out aftershow. Used to do Glitterball. She worked in TV at the time (on fringes but looking for big break); a friend knew her.
I'd ACE Mastermind if my specialist subject was shite tv.
I think he may have been a builder, he had mahoosive muscles anyway. Am I imagining it or did he share the prize money with her when he won? I remember feeling very sorry for the one who seemed really smitten with her though.
I didn't see the US one. But the other night there was a woman on tv who I think was probably the one on the show and that reminded me. I have vague memories of a man who clearly fancied her like mad and yet her choosing the very muscley and really lovely bloke who clearly did not go for ladies. I was either pregnant or had a new baby at the time, and was watching a lot of tv!
No I didn't imagine this, but remember watching a dating type show, where there was one girl and lots of men, and the girl had to work out which of the men were gay, and find a straight one she wanted to date, to win the prize for both of them. If a gay man won I think he got the whole cash prize. The girl had dark hair. I only saw a bit of it, i think it was about 7 years ago, just after the first Big Brother maybe. I can hardly believe that it was real, but do remember it quiet clearly.
