She also had my favourite moment of the entire series, "But how can I kill you with your own shoe?".

Same, I thought on the duck task her brute strength handling of Alex was really funny too, with him scrambling on to her back as she took control of the bike.

I never realsied how tiny Sophie Duker is. I know Greg and Alex are huge but she even looked like a toddler next to the others. And she was wearing built-up shoes.

Also, I don't like feeling like this but I really dislike Bridget Christie. She's fucking horrible.

I'll have to watch again - all of the bot-written celeb webpages have her down as 6ft tall, so maybe someone fed them some bum info and they ran with it.

Great series, and a strong finish after a slightly lacklustre penultimate episode. I think the duck task was a good example of one that could be done in different (and entertaining) ways when the contestants are willing to think creatively.

The fact that the contestants had quite different personalities and styles is reflected in the diversity of opinion on this thread, with different posters (dis)liking different contestants. I'm fortunate in that I liked them all, so extracted a lot of enjoyment from the show. (It actually takes quite a lot for me to take against someone on this show, so congratulations Russell Howard and Iain Stirling on that). I also thought that on the whole, there was more effort put into the prize tasks than recent series, and Greg seemed less visibly irritated by the submissions.

Notably, this series' average scores are all lower than of Alice Levine, who finished last in S6.

That's because you've omitted the points they scored in the last episode. The averages should be

Spoiler alert
Judi Love 14.2
Ardal O'Hanlon 15.3
Bridget Christie 15.7
Chris Ramsey 17.0
Sophie Duker 17.3

Did she do a five minute shit on your bed?

Glad Chris Ramsey didnt win if there is another Champions series on the way

Bridget was probably the best contestant they've had, absolute weird woman

The official website didn't update the leaderboards on Friday morning, which was where I got the numbers from.

It was nice to see Sophie Duker - who's (quite rightly) not shy about criticising other shows she's been on for bad practices - post on her Instagram stories about how great and supportive everyone involved in Taskmaster is. She said she was "in awe" (or something similar) of the other four contestants too.

Did they reveal what was in the pipette for the taste task?

Vegetable stock I think.

I've seen her live and I don't remember thinking she was noticeably short or tall. So I figure maybe she's of pretty regular height, or possibly that I am very unobservant.

Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on June 17, 2022, 12:27:00 PMThought the duck prize was really weak and only saved by Sophie and Bridget changing the rules, the food tasting one was poor too, and the only one I really loved was the singing task. I kept on being annoyed with Judi's ever rubbish attempts too, and kept on thinking how amazing this series would have been with Sally Phillips or Mike Wozniak in her place, then it might have been my favourite ever. Still, at least Sophie won, who was after Bridget my favourite, so I was pleased about that.

The interesting mix of personalities and their chemistry is what made this season so good, replacing Judi with yet another zany cracker would have actively damaged it IMO.
