Social media went mad when Jeremy’s new quiz show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire presented him with a motoring question he couldn’t answer. The question asked what shape a stop sign is, and after the contestant thought about it briefly, they chose the ‘Ask The Host’ lifeline.
Jeremy quickly confessed that he didn’t have a clue and joked that that “stopping is for other people”. This didn’t stop the social media onslaught however, as viewers expressed their disbelief on Twitter.
Can’t believe Clarkson doesn’t know what shape a stop sign is, I’ve been driving 5 minutes and I know 😏 #WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire

After some discussion, Jeremy and the contestant did finally choose the right answer which turned out to be ‘octagon’. But to be honest, I think a lot of people would have trouble answering even simple questions on TV. Yes, Jeremy is used to the pressure of being on camera, but with the added pressure of a contestant’s prize money being affected, it’s not a surprise that his mind went blank.
What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below.
Despite this surprise, Jeremy Clarkson is still under much praise for what he’s doing on the new ITV quiz show.
