These Are The Types of Contestants You’ll See On Every Game Show

March 25, 2022

If you’re a lover of game shows, we’re sure you’ve seen these types of contestants. 

The ones who truly can’t be bothered.

Expect minimum effort from these types of contestants because their motto is “I can’t come and kill myself”.

The ones who have too much shame.

Nothing on this earth can make this set of contestants do anything potentially embarrassing in front of a camera. They’d rather die.

The ones who have their eyes on the prize.

These ones are here to win and do nothing else. Stay away from them because they will do anything to come out on top.

The ones who think they know what they’re doing but really don’t.

These ones act like they know everything but really can’t get even the simplest answers right. They’re the fastest to hit the buzzer and confidently say rubbish. 

The ones who were clearly supposed to be at the Olympics.

There’s no type of obstacle course these types of contestants can’t win. Fear them.

The ones with good vibes

These types of contestants support everyone, including the opposing team. They just want everyone to have fun, which is cute but insane because that’s not how you win.

The families 

Between the families that bond and play as a team and the ones that are always at each other’s necks, we can’t decide which ones are our faves. 

Speaking of families, the finale of Africa Magic’s fun family game show, Come Play Naija, will be airing today (25th of March 2022) at 10 p.m.

If you’ve been watching Big Brother Naija from the very first season then you would have noticed that with every season we see a housemate that acts exactly the same way a housemate from a previous season acted.

During the 2015 Headies, Olamide famously took to the stage to protest Lil Kesh losing the ‘Next Rated’ award to Reekado Banks. At that moment, although it was wildly inappropriate, he had a point: Lil Kesh had simply had a better year than the Mavin Records newcomer. Four years down the line, however, and it’s […]
