** Courtesy of Andy Roddick: in the 2010 "Sporting Heroes" edition, the collected group of sporting heroes managed to get a chain of ''seventeen'' correct answers, and yet nobody thought to bank the huge amount of money they had earned (even though they weren't earning anything extra after the tenth correct answer). Eventually, they lost it all when Alex "Hurricane" Higgins confidently answered "What day comes after Tuesday" with "Sunday!"
** "What letter is the name for a female sheep?" "Baa?" "...EWE." What makes this worse is the look of inquisitive confusion he gives Anne right after she gives the answer, indicating [[WhosOnFirst he thought she said "you" and was addressing him.]]

** One contestant confused the motto of Boy Scouts with Alcoholics Anonymous. (Although considering the existence of a few really [[PaedoHunt unscrupulous Scoutmasters]], some former, shall we say, traumatized Boy Scouts, may have ended up ''[[DrowningMySorrows in]]'' Alcoholics Anonymous. Or former Boy Scouts may have had a good Scouting experience, then been dealt a bad hand in adulthood and taken up the bottle. Yet the Boy Scouts themselves are still a highly virtuous, goal-driven organization, mind you.)

** BookerT in the Wrestling/{{WWE}} episode, who did so badly that being an idiot became his gimmick in WWE for a while afterwards. Also Kurt Angle, who did statistically better, but took too long to answer some of the questions, including one point where he spends over ''half a minute'' saying "uhhh" before giving up, ultimately costing the team a lot of potential money. Big Show also managed to not come up with an answer for "What television show theme has the phrase [[Series/MisterEd "A horse is a horse, of course, of course"]].

* ReplacementScrappy: Syndicated version host George Gray, who had to follow MeanBrit Anne Robinson, whose previous game was the abysmal ''[[Series/TheGongShow Extreme Gong]]'', and whose only notable work since has been announcer on ''Series/ThePriceIsRight''. Then there are some who think the man's style appears to have helped him [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap redeem himself.]] However, because it was a daytime syndicated version, the scope of the top prize was cut down to a ''tenth'' of what it used to be and the show was slashed in half to a 30-minute run where the rounds were even shorter, there was less suspense, and the prizes awarded were a lot less substantial, leading to a lot of lukewarm episodes.
