What happened on Tipping Point yesterday?

Yesterday’s Tipping Point was once again not without incident.

It was towards the end of yesterday’s show when a contestant’s knowledge collectively stunned viewers.

Claudia from York managed to make it to the final round – but she had a moment to forget when answering questions.

The question asked of Claudia was – “Which alcoholic drink is traditionally used as the base of a bourguignonne sauce?”.

The options given to Claudia were cognac, red wine, or beer.  “I don’t know what cognac… I don’t know what that is,” she said.

Claudia then picked red wine, which was the right answer.

Claudia’s answer was correct, however, some viewers couldn’t get over the fact that she didn’t know what cognac is!

“She doesn’t know what cognac is? My god,” one viewer tweeted.

“Don’t know what cognac is. Oh my,” another said.

“She’s not heard of cognac!” a third wrote.

“I knew what cognac was and I don’t drink,” another tweeted.

Tipping Point mystery prizes

Last week, the show was mocked by viewers again – this time because of the mystery prizes being given to contestants.

One contestant, Dom, managed to win both a flight simulator experience and a six-person inflatable hot tub.

Dom branded the prizes “amazing” and “awesome” at the time. However, viewers weren’t of the same opinion.

Is it just me or are the mystery prizes on #tippingpoint so spectacularly naff?” one viewer tweeted at the time.

“Christ, a six-person inflatable hot tub looks like something they had leftover from the middle at Lidl,” another said.

“A ride on a flight simulator and a hot tub – a double whammy of [bleep] mysteries!” a third wrote.
