Pointless fans all have the same complaint about BBC game show – and demand big change


POINTLESS fans have all had the same complaint about the BBC game show – and demand a big change.

The show – hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman – has been on our screens since August 2009.

The show sees four pairs answer questions on various subjects, with the team with the highest score leaving at the end of each round until one remains.

Then in the final round, the last pair standing get a choice of topics to try and find a Pointless answer to, with the chance of winning the jackpot if they succeed.

If they fail to get a pointless answer, the jackpot rolls over to the next show, where another £1000 will be added.

While some contestants have been lucky to win a large amount of money after a run of rollovers, most face the prospect of winning the basic £1000.

It's left some viewers at home annoyed, especially considering the money that can be won on other game and quiz shows.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "I like #pointless but isn't the prize money considerably bad compared to other shows considering how difficult it can be too?"

Another added: "I realise it’s not high on the general list of what needs fixing in the world, but can the jackpot on #Pointless please be doubled, at least! Splitting a grand between two people wouldn’t even cover their fuel bill."

A third tweeted: "Pointless has to be the hardest game show ever. Even if you win, you get a jackpot of £1000."

Meanwhile a fourth shared: "#pointless I've just caught the end of this programme. It the jackpot really £1,000? Jim Bowen gave away more money than that!"

It was revealed last month that Richard, 51, is leaving Pointless after 13 years.

He is doing so to focus on his hugely successful writing career –
which has seen him become a best-selling author.

Pointless airs weekdays at 5.15pm on BBC One.
