Are you smarter than a 10 year old?

Our telly has gone quiz show crazy.  The latest gameshow Are  you smarter than a 10 year old? is hosted by the tres personable Dominic Bowden, who tonight emphasised his considerable length and lankiness by standing next to small children and wearing super skinny jeans.

The contestants were completely likeable, particularly Lisa who wants to be an astronaut because of the stories her Grandpa told her when she was a child.  Ahhh.  The children who make up the ‘classroom’ also provided some funny moments, with a know-it-all slant.  So cute. 

All sentimentality was gone though once I saw the pattern emerge; noone wanted to pick the blonde girl!  Is poor Katelyn learning early (and publicly on national TV) that folk will stereotype her intelligence based on her looks? 

I will be tuning in next week just to see if anyone picks the blonde, oh, and to see Dom in his ultra tight trou, obv.

  1. We noticed that too! But to be honest I hadn’t attributed it to her being blonde, just that everyone seemed to think the boys were smarter than girls.

  2. Yip, there was a definate lean to the boys, and a leave-the-blonde-for-last pattern occuring. My bleach bottles shuddered.
