I’m beginning to think that there was some sort of pool running at the last light entertainment executives conference for the most ridiculous idea for a new quiz show they could get on air… Only weeks after the BBC launch ‘Don’t Scare The Hare’, the folk at Dave have seriously managed to ‘one up’ the Beeb with their brand new quiz show offering – Al Murray’s Compete for the Meat.
Yes, it’s a quiz show where the contestant’s compete to win a side of meat. In fact, i think it’s fair to say, it’s television’s only meat-based quiz show.
Brand new and exclusive to Dave, ‘Compete for the Meat’ sees Al Murray slip back effortlessly into his award-winning and legendary Pub Landlord guise for a brilliant (if somewhat ridiculous) pub quiz show.
The ‘steaks’ are high (sorry, that pun is the fault of the PR company), as the Guv’nor himself asks the questions to four teams of two, who play for the honour of taking home a frozen chicken and the accolade of being slightly smarter than the competition. Runners-up can expect to walk away with sausages, while the only thing the losing team can look forward to is a Slow Walk of Shame. Look out for some celeb guests too (although I rather suspect you won’t be seeing many A listers. ;)).
You can join in the fun on by playing the ‘Compete for the Meat’ Facebook game, and win yourself a ‘frozen chicken’.
Al Murray’s Compete for the Meat starts Thursday May 19th at 9pm on Dave. (Sky channel 111, Virgin TV channel 128, Freeview 19)
