Hello, and welcome to The Boss,

0:00:180:00:20

the quiz show where being in control is everything.

0:00:200:00:22

Our players will all be trying to work their way to the top

0:00:220:00:25

and get their hands on the thousands of pounds on offer today.

0:00:250:00:27

Let's meet the team.

0:00:270:00:29

Hi, I'm Isobelle, I'm a tourism student from the Wirral.

0:00:310:00:34

I'm Mitz, I'm a project manager from London.

0:00:340:00:36

I'm Elaine. I'm an accountant and I'm from Belfast.

0:00:360:00:39

I'm Tex, I'm a retired holiday camp worker from Devon.

0:00:390:00:43

I'm Jayne. I'm an HGV driver from Suffolk.

0:00:430:00:46

OK, team. The way the game works is simple.

0:00:480:00:51

Each of you has an equal chance to become The Boss, and being The Boss

0:00:510:00:54

means you get to manage the team as best you can to increase

0:00:540:00:58

the prize fund, but if anyone feels they can do better

0:00:580:01:01

and wants to knock The Boss out of the game,

0:01:010:01:04

they can launch a leadership challenge.

0:01:040:01:06

Only by surviving until the end of the show can you walk away

0:01:060:01:10

with the cash. So, we need our first boss of the show.

0:01:100:01:13

To decide who that is, we're going to see what you are made of.

0:01:130:01:17

You'll face two minutes of quickfire questions.

0:01:170:01:20

The person who answers the most correctly

0:01:200:01:22

will have a very important job to do.

0:01:220:01:25

Let's find out who's first to rise to the top.

0:01:250:01:28

Let's find out who's boss.

Just in time. Well done, Isobelle.

0:03:310:03:34

Let's take a look at the scores.

0:03:340:03:37

I can tell you that the winner of that round was...

0:03:370:03:40

Elaine.

0:03:400:03:42

Well done, Elaine.

0:03:420:03:43

APPLAUSE

0:03:430:03:45

And what that means is you've proven yourself early on

0:03:470:03:50

and you have a decision to make.

0:03:500:03:53

Do you want to be the first Boss today,

0:03:530:03:56

or are you going to bide your time and promote someone else?

0:03:560:04:00

What do you want to do, Elaine?

0:04:000:04:01

I would like to take my fate into my own hands and be The Boss.

0:04:010:04:05

Elaine, come and join me up in The Boss's office.

0:04:050:04:07

APPLAUSE

0:04:070:04:10

Welcome to The Boss's office, Elaine.

0:04:140:04:17

It's beautifully furnished, as you can see.

0:04:170:04:20

So, you've chosen to take your own fate in your hands...

0:04:200:04:23

Yeah. Might as well and then I can see what everyone else is like,

0:04:230:04:27

if they want to challenge me, bring it.

0:04:270:04:30

No, if they want to challenge me then they can come up.

0:04:300:04:33

Is there someone out there you've got your eye on as competition?

0:04:330:04:36

Um, not so much someone I have my eye on as competition,

0:04:360:04:40

as someone that I'd like to be here with me in the final round,

0:04:400:04:42

-if I can make it that far.

-Really?

0:04:420:04:44

-In a nice way.

-In a nice way, yeah.

0:04:440:04:46

I want the best player to be here at the end.

0:04:460:04:49

Now, we're all looking at them, thinking, who is that?

0:04:490:04:51

LAUGHTER

0:04:510:04:52

You are today's first Boss and have the chance to take away the money.

0:04:520:04:56

And to do that, all you need to do is to be right here

0:04:560:05:00

-at the end of the show.

-Yeah.

-You will now face your Boss's Questions.

0:05:000:05:04

The better you do, the more you could win.

0:05:040:05:07

You'll have five questions to answer and for every one you get right,

0:05:070:05:11

you'll move up one place on the money ladder.

0:05:110:05:13

A wrong answer will see you move back down again.

0:05:130:05:16

Play well and your team could be playing for £100 a question.

0:05:160:05:21

If you have a tough round, they will only be playing for £10 a question.

0:05:210:05:26

Let's see how much of a boss you are with your Boss's Questions.

0:05:260:05:30

Here is your first question.

0:05:330:05:35

I think it's Leonardo da Vinci.

0:05:410:05:43

Let's hope it's Leonardo da Vinci.

0:05:430:05:44

Leonardo da Vinci is your answer?

0:05:440:05:46

-Yeah.

-Let's see.

0:05:460:05:47

Well done. It's the right answer.

0:05:490:05:51

£30 on the money ladder.

0:05:510:05:54

Next question.

0:05:540:05:55

You know what?

0:06:010:06:02

I read this on the plane

0:06:020:06:04

this morning on the way here.

0:06:040:06:06

-Did you?

-And the answer that I think

0:06:060:06:08

I read was Mad Men.

0:06:080:06:09

-Mad Men?

-Yeah.

-Let's see.

0:06:090:06:11

Well done. Well done.

0:06:130:06:15

Let's see if we can get you up to £70.

0:06:150:06:17

Let's have a look at your next question.

0:06:170:06:18

So, my absolute worst subject

0:06:240:06:28

is things about England, basically.

0:06:280:06:32

Just things about England!

0:06:320:06:34

I can't actually think of any

0:06:340:06:36

national park in England.

0:06:360:06:37

Have a go.

0:06:370:06:39

The Pennines are a range

0:06:390:06:40

of mountains, aren't they?

0:06:400:06:42

I don't even... Let's go for them.

0:06:420:06:44

OK, the Pennines?

0:06:440:06:45

-I don't even know if it's a national park.

-OK, let's see if that's right.

0:06:450:06:49

It's not. The Lake District.

0:06:490:06:52

I could have guessed that.

0:06:520:06:53

-But I didn't.

-It's OK.

0:06:530:06:55

You've still got time. Let's see the next question.

0:06:550:06:58

I think Oasis had a song called Supersonic,

0:07:050:07:08

so I'll go for Oasis.

0:07:080:07:10

Oasis? On the basis of the song?

0:07:100:07:11

-Yeah.

-Supersonic?

-Yep.

0:07:110:07:13

Let's see if that's right.

0:07:130:07:14

It is right. Well done. £50.

0:07:150:07:18

Let's see your last question.

0:07:180:07:20

All I can see is Mitz going...

0:07:270:07:30

This is literally the only thing I know about this sport.

0:07:310:07:34

-Right.

-And it's cricket.

0:07:340:07:35

Let's see if you're right. You're saying it's cricket.

0:07:350:07:38

It is cricket, well done and that is £70.

0:07:380:07:41

Well done, Elaine.

0:07:410:07:43

Excellent.

0:07:430:07:44

APPLAUSE

0:07:440:07:46

Let's play the team game.

0:07:460:07:48

Two minutes on the clock.

0:07:520:07:54

Let's play.

0:07:540:07:56

Mitz.

0:08:040:08:05

The Tonight Show.

0:08:050:08:06

Incorrect. Late Late Show is the answer. Next question.

0:08:080:08:10

-Tex.

-Llama.

0:08:170:08:19

Correct.

0:08:190:08:22

-Mitz.

-Tweet.

0:08:280:08:31

Correct.

0:08:310:08:33

-Jayne.

-Karate.

0:08:400:08:43

No, it was taekwondo.

0:08:430:08:44

-Isobelle.

-Rihanna.

0:08:530:08:55

Correct.

0:08:570:08:58

-Mitz.

-Samwell Tarly.

0:09:040:09:07

Correct.

0:09:070:09:08

-Tex.

-Feta.

0:09:130:09:16

Correct.

0:09:160:09:17

-Tex.

-Richard III.

0:09:250:09:29

Correct.

0:09:290:09:31

-Jayne.

-Chicago.

0:09:370:09:39

Correct.

0:09:390:09:40

-Isobelle.

-Russell Brand.

-KLAXON SOUNDS

0:09:460:09:48

Just out of time.

0:09:480:09:50

It was the right answer though, Isobelle, but just out of time.

0:09:500:09:55

OK, Elaine. How do you think you did as The Boss there?

0:09:550:09:59

Um, I did OK. I picked a couple of wrong people but generally,

0:09:590:10:03

everybody did really well.

0:10:030:10:04

Mitz looks like a Game of Thrones fan.

0:10:040:10:06

I'm a Game of Thrones fan, that's not even an insult.

0:10:060:10:09

LAUGHTER

0:10:090:10:11

The people you went to most of all were Mitz and Tex

0:10:110:10:16

but who were the best players?

0:10:160:10:18

Let's have a look at the stats.

0:10:180:10:20

You relied on Tex, which seems like quite a good idea.

0:10:200:10:23

Tex, how do you feel about being the go-to guy for Elaine in that round?

0:10:230:10:27

It has its advantages but it's a bit hairy at times,

0:10:270:10:31

I have to drag things up from the depths.

0:10:310:10:33

You were playing for £70 a question,

0:10:340:10:37

so if we'd had a perfect round, Elaine,

0:10:370:10:41

you would have added £630 to the prize fund.

0:10:410:10:44

In fact, you actually added £490 to the prize fund.

0:10:440:10:49

Which is really good. Are you happy with the result?

0:10:490:10:52

Yeah, that's a really good start.

0:10:520:10:54

Now we come to the hard part, as right now,

0:10:540:10:56

somebody is going to be leaving the show.

0:10:560:10:58

Team, it's over to you.

0:11:020:11:03

Do you think Elaine is good enough to be The Boss or do you think

0:11:030:11:07

you could do better and she needs to go home?

0:11:070:11:10

If so, you can now lock in a Leadership Challenge but remember,

0:11:100:11:14

if no one is brave enough,

0:11:140:11:17

The Boss will choose two of you to fight it out for survival.

0:11:170:11:22

Team, if you dare to defy, challenge now.

0:11:220:11:25

Did you see them or looking at each other,

0:11:350:11:37

seeing if they could see what they were all doing?

0:11:370:11:39

They are all at each other...

0:11:390:11:40

OK, Elaine, your team have all had a chance to challenge your leadership.

0:11:400:11:45

Do you think anyone is going to be brave enough?

0:11:450:11:47

-I hope not.

-If there's anyone you would not like to challenge,

0:11:470:11:50

-who would it be?

-I think Tex at this point.

0:11:500:11:53

-Right.

-He seems to have a wealth of knowledge from all kind of realms,

0:11:530:11:59

-if that makes sense.

-Tex is an enigma.

0:11:590:12:01

He is. Wrapped up in a puzzle.

0:12:010:12:03

No one knows what Tex knows.

0:12:040:12:05

No!

0:12:050:12:07

And who would you like to face?

0:12:070:12:09

-One of the other three.

-One of the other three!

0:12:090:12:13

Let's see if anyone has dared to take you on.

0:12:130:12:17

-No one!

-Yes!

0:12:240:12:25

How do you feel about that?

0:12:270:12:28

-Over the moon.

-You genuinely are delighted by that.

0:12:280:12:33

Nobody has had the gall to challenge you

0:12:330:12:35

and that leaves you in a very powerful position.

0:12:350:12:38

You now get to choose two people to fight it out against each other

0:12:380:12:43

-up here.

-OK, I'm kind of thinking tactically,

0:12:430:12:46

Tex in particular is good at kind of history and geography and that kind

0:12:460:12:50

of thing, so we'll leave him be for the time being.

0:12:500:12:52

OK. Oh, my goodness, you're playing it like a game of chess.

0:12:520:12:54

-I am.

-Leave Tex where he is!

0:12:540:12:57

Yes.

0:12:570:12:59

You need to pick two for me to come up here and fight for survival.

0:12:590:13:02

I feel so bad.

0:13:020:13:03

Don't feel bad. You're The Boss.

0:13:030:13:05

I'm just going to pick the two girls. Isobelle and Jayne.

0:13:050:13:08

I'll be honest, Isobelle didn't sound very pleased by that.

0:13:100:13:13

So much for women sticking together!

0:13:130:13:15

Yes.

0:13:150:13:16

Isobelle and Jayne, please come up to The Boss's office.

0:13:160:13:19

APPLAUSE

0:13:190:13:20

Isobelle, Jayne.

0:13:230:13:25

You've been chosen by Elaine to come up here.

0:13:260:13:29

Isobelle, tactically,

0:13:290:13:30

were you trying to stay under the radar a little bit

0:13:300:13:33

-because you've been quite quiet?

-Yeah, I've been trying to...

0:13:330:13:35

I've been trying to play it under so just at the end

0:13:350:13:37

I can kind of come up a bit. But she's obviously picked me up,

0:13:370:13:40

-so it hasn't worked.

-Hasn't worked!

0:13:400:13:42

And Jayne, similarly,

0:13:420:13:44

both of you were kind of on the periphery of it all.

0:13:440:13:47

Do you think you deserve to be up here fighting for survival?

0:13:470:13:50

Probably!

0:13:500:13:52

Isobelle and Jayne, to stay in the show,

0:13:520:13:54

you need to win this challenge.

0:13:540:13:57

You're going to see a series of puzzles.

0:13:570:14:00

Buzz in with the correct answer and you win a point,

0:14:000:14:02

buzz in with an incorrect answer and it gets passed over

0:14:020:14:06

to your opponent.

0:14:060:14:07

Best of three wins and the loser goes home.

0:14:070:14:10

-OK.

-Your challenge game today is...

0:14:100:14:12

I'm going to show you a category and a sequence of pictures.

0:14:150:14:19

Just put them together to make a person, a place or a thing.

0:14:190:14:23

You need to buzz in when you think you know what we're looking for.

0:14:230:14:26

Here's an example.

0:14:260:14:28

It's a celebrity.

0:14:280:14:29

And it's Anne Robinson.

0:14:320:14:34

To save your place on the show, let's play Picture This.

0:14:370:14:40

First question. It's a radio programme.

0:14:400:14:44

BUZZER

0:14:470:14:49

-Isobelle.

-Desert Storm Discs.

0:14:490:14:51

That's incorrect. I can throw it over to Jayne.

0:14:510:14:56

Desert Island Discs.

0:14:560:14:57

Damn!

0:14:570:14:59

Desert Island Discs is the correct answer.

0:14:590:15:02

Jayne, you have one point. Let's see the next question.

0:15:020:15:05

It's a celebrity.

0:15:060:15:08

Isobelle.

0:15:100:15:12

-Justin Timberlake.

-Let's have a look.

0:15:120:15:14

It is right. As you can see there, that is Justin Bieber,

0:15:140:15:17

some timber and a lake.

0:15:170:15:19

LAUGHTER

0:15:190:15:21

Did you know that was Justin Bieber?

0:15:210:15:23

Well, I knew it wasn't Justin Timberlake.

0:15:240:15:26

Yeah.

0:15:260:15:28

You have a point each.

0:15:280:15:29

This is the decider.

0:15:290:15:31

Let's see your next question.

0:15:310:15:33

-Isobelle.

-Apricot.

0:15:390:15:41

You're saying apricot.

0:15:410:15:43

It's the correct answer, Isobelle.

0:15:440:15:46

Well done. As you can see, an ape, Rick, Rick Astley, and a cot,

0:15:460:15:52

which makes apricot.

0:15:520:15:53

I had no idea who that was, by the way.

0:15:530:15:55

Rick Astley of course being an incredibly famous pop star

0:15:550:15:59

from probably before you were born.

0:15:590:16:02

Isobelle, you are off to join the team again and Jayne,

0:16:020:16:05

you're going home. Time for you to clock off.

0:16:050:16:09

APPLAUSE

0:16:090:16:11

Thank you.

0:16:120:16:13

-Elaine.

-Yes.

-Jayne's gone.

0:16:190:16:21

-She is.

-How do you feel about that?

0:16:210:16:24

It was quite a ruthless decision.

0:16:240:16:25

It was, and I feel terrible but as long as I stay here,

0:16:250:16:28

I guess I'll have to make it.

0:16:280:16:31

I just... I've got to stay here longer...

0:16:310:16:32

When I first met you you were all cheerful

0:16:320:16:35

and now I'm seeing a completely different...

0:16:350:16:37

"As long as I stay here, I'm absolutely fine about it."

0:16:370:16:40

So, once again, we need to see how high you can set the bar

0:16:400:16:44

as The Boss.

0:16:440:16:45

Again, you're going to face five Boss's Questions.

0:16:450:16:47

For every one you get right,

0:16:470:16:49

you will move one place up on the money ladder.

0:16:490:16:51

A wrong answer will move you right back down again, OK?

0:16:510:16:54

This time, a good round could see your team playing

0:16:540:16:57

for £200 a question.

0:16:570:17:01

A shocker will mean just £10 into the fund per correct answer.

0:17:010:17:06

Let's see how much of a boss you are with your Boss's Questions.

0:17:060:17:09

OK, here is your first question.

0:17:130:17:15

Iceberg is definitely a type of lettuce

0:17:220:17:24

and let's hope the other two are as well.

0:17:240:17:26

Correct answer. Well done. You are up to £30.

0:17:270:17:31

Let's see your next question. Let's get you up to £50.

0:17:310:17:33

I'll go with Daniel Defoe.

0:17:370:17:38

That's the correct answer. Well done.

0:17:400:17:43

Let's see the next question.

0:17:430:17:44

It's Amy Winehouse.

0:17:500:17:51

It is. Up to £100.

0:17:540:17:58

Next question.

0:17:580:17:59

So, I definitely should know this but in my head,

0:18:050:18:09

seven or nine, seven or nine...

0:18:090:18:12

I'm going to go for seven.

0:18:120:18:14

For £200...

0:18:140:18:16

You are saying seven, let's see if that's right.

0:18:170:18:20

It is right. Well done, Elaine!

0:18:210:18:23

Let's see if we can keep you there.

0:18:230:18:25

This is your final question.

0:18:250:18:27

Let's hope that it's Tim Peake.

0:18:340:18:37

For £200...

0:18:370:18:40

See if that's right...

0:18:400:18:41

It is right. Well done, Elaine!

0:18:420:18:44

Well done, that was perfect.

0:18:440:18:47

APPLAUSE

0:18:470:18:49

Elaine, that was a perfect round.

0:18:490:18:51

Hooray.

0:18:510:18:53

-I like that.

-See, now, you are all sweet again.

0:18:530:18:55

I can't understand what's going on, Elaine.

0:18:550:18:57

You're making me The Boss, you're making me be mean.

0:18:570:19:00

I'm not making you do anything, Elaine!

0:19:000:19:02

I'm much happier up here than I am down there, yeah.

0:19:020:19:05

Let's hope your team don't let you down.

0:19:050:19:08

Let's play your team questions.

0:19:080:19:10

Two minutes on the clock. Let's play.

0:19:140:19:17

-Mitz.

-Del Boy.

0:19:230:19:24

Incorrect. Granville.

0:19:270:19:28

Tex.

0:19:350:19:37

Austria.

0:19:370:19:39

Incorrect, it was Poland.

0:19:390:19:40

-Isobelle.

-Government communications.

0:19:500:19:53

Correct answer.

0:19:530:19:54

-Mitz.

-Idris Elba.

0:20:030:20:04

Incorrect. It was Morgan Freeman.

0:20:060:20:07

-Tex.

-Er...Puffin.

0:20:160:20:18

Incorrect. It's a toucan crossing.

0:20:200:20:23

-Isobelle.

-Meg.

0:20:290:20:31

Correct.

0:20:310:20:32

-Isobelle.

-Finland.

0:20:390:20:42

Correct.

0:20:420:20:43

-Isobelle.

-Goo Goo Dolls.

0:20:500:20:53

No, it was the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

0:20:530:20:55

Yeah Yeah Yeahs!

0:20:550:20:56

-Isobelle.

-Sore throat.

0:21:010:21:03

Correct.

0:21:040:21:05

KLAXON SOUNDS

0:21:090:21:11

Just out of time.

0:21:110:21:13

The answer was Queens.

0:21:130:21:15

Elaine, the person that you went to the most was Isobelle.

0:21:150:21:18

How do you think you did in terms of delegating the questions there?

0:21:180:21:22

That was a hard round and I started pretty badly,

0:21:220:21:25

and then I went with Isobelle quite a lot and we started

0:21:250:21:28

to do quite well.

0:21:280:21:29

Well, let's find out exactly who the best players were.

0:21:290:21:33

By a country mile...

0:21:350:21:37

-..Isobelle.

-Yeah.

0:21:380:21:40

Something happened to Isobelle in the last round.

0:21:400:21:43

I think it was when you put her neck on the chopping board, Elaine.

0:21:430:21:47

Isobelle, great round.

0:21:470:21:50

-Do you feel you have something to prove just now?

-Yeah, yeah.

0:21:500:21:53

LAUGHTER

0:21:530:21:54

-And Tex...

-Yes.

-..at the beginning of the show,

0:21:540:21:56

Elaine had incredible faith in you.

0:21:560:21:58

How does it feel to have that sapping away?

0:21:580:22:01

LAUGHTER

0:22:010:22:03

I need to come back...

0:22:030:22:05

-Yeah.

-..with a vengeance.

0:22:050:22:07

-Yes.

-Are you losing slight faith in Tex?

0:22:070:22:10

I mean, he's let himself down, he's let me down...

0:22:100:22:13

-LAUGHTER

-..he's let everyone down.

0:22:130:22:15

Well, you were playing for £200 a question,

0:22:170:22:20

so if we'd played a perfect round,

0:22:200:22:22

you would have added £1,800 to the prize fund.

0:22:220:22:26

AUDIENCE GROANS

0:22:260:22:27

As it happened, you actually added £800, though.

0:22:270:22:32

-That's OK.

-That's not bad.

-Yeah.

-That's not bad at all.

0:22:320:22:35

That means the total prize fund now stands at £1,290, Elaine.

0:22:350:22:41

-Nice.

-That's pretty good.

-That is pretty good. Yeah.

0:22:410:22:44

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

0:22:440:22:47

Well, now we come to the hard part,

0:22:470:22:49

as right now, somebody is going to be leaving the show.

0:22:490:22:52

Team, it's over to you.

0:22:550:22:57

Do you think that Elaine is a worthy boss

0:22:580:23:01

or do you think you could do better and she needs to go home?

0:23:010:23:05

If so, you can now lock in a Leadership Challenge,

0:23:050:23:08

but remember - if no one is brave enough, The Boss will choose

0:23:080:23:11

two of you to fight it out for survival.

0:23:110:23:14

Team, if you dare to defy, challenge now.

0:23:140:23:18

AUDIENCE SHOUTS

0:23:200:23:22

Do you think you're going to get a challenge?

0:23:270:23:30

I'd rather not get a challenge, but if someone challenges me,

0:23:300:23:34

-I'm happy to take them on.

-Right.

0:23:340:23:36

Well, let's see if anyone wants to take you on.

0:23:360:23:40

-No-one!

-Yes!

0:23:480:23:50

Again!

0:23:500:23:52

This is extraordinary.

0:23:520:23:55

How much goading do you need to do?

0:23:550:23:57

LAUGHTER

0:23:570:23:58

Nobody has had the gall to challenge you and that leaves you in another

0:23:580:24:02

-powerful position...

-Good.

-..cos you get to choose two people

0:24:020:24:06

-to come and fight it out for survival.

-OK.

0:24:060:24:08

I think it's only fair this time that Isobelle gets to stay

0:24:080:24:12

where she is, and Tex and Mitz have to come up here

0:24:120:24:17

-and duel to the death.

-You're enjoying being The Boss, aren't you?

0:24:170:24:20

-I'm starting to, yeah.

-Starting to really enjoy it.

0:24:200:24:23

Well, that means, Mitz and Tex, you're going to have

0:24:230:24:26

to play for survival. The winner gets to stay in the team

0:24:260:24:28

and the loser has to go home. Please come to The Boss's Office.

0:24:280:24:32

Mitz...

0:24:380:24:40

Look at your wee face!

0:24:410:24:43

You just seem really disappointed.

0:24:430:24:46

I am a little bit, if I'm honest with you.

0:24:460:24:48

-Yeah.

-I thought I should have done better in that round.

0:24:480:24:51

But I'm ready to take Tex on.

0:24:510:24:53

He reminds me of my grandad.

0:24:530:24:54

-Yeah, all right!

-OK.

0:24:540:24:56

LAUGHTER

0:24:560:24:57

I would suggest maybe you could have shown potential by

0:24:570:24:59

answering more of the questions...

0:24:590:25:01

-Yeah.

-..right, Mitz.

-It was just a bad round for me.

0:25:010:25:04

I think the questions were just like not questions I knew the answers to.

0:25:040:25:07

-Obviously!

-Not Game Of Thrones.

-Not Game Of Thrones, yeah.

0:25:070:25:10

If only it was a round entitled Things About Game Of Thrones

0:25:100:25:12

-Mitz Knows.

-I'd be all over it, yeah.

-You'd be fine.

0:25:120:25:14

-Can I just ask you?

-Yes?

-What's Game Of Thrones?

0:25:140:25:17

LAUGHTER It's very much a family tale...

0:25:170:25:19

-Right, OK.

-Very cheerful.

-Like Happy Days.

-Like Happy Days,

0:25:190:25:22

exactly like Happy Days. LAUGHTER

0:25:220:25:25

How do you think you're going to do in this?

0:25:250:25:27

-You're fighting for survival, Tex.

-I'm just going to go for it, and if

0:25:270:25:30

I lose then OK, but it won't be through lack of trying.

0:25:300:25:33

Well, Mitz and Tex, you need to win this challenge to keep your place

0:25:330:25:36

in the show. You're both going to play some puzzles.

0:25:360:25:40

Buzz in with the correct answer and you win a point.

0:25:400:25:42

Buzz in with an incorrect answer and it gets passed over

0:25:420:25:45

to your opponent.

0:25:450:25:47

Your challenge game is...

0:25:470:25:48

I'm going to show you a keyword.

0:25:510:25:53

You just need to tell me which of three words that follow can be found

0:25:530:25:58

using the letters in it.

0:25:580:26:00

So here's an example.

0:26:000:26:01

If the keyword was building...

0:26:030:26:04

..which of the three words, lung, land or long, could be found in it?

0:26:060:26:10

And the answer would be...

0:26:100:26:11

..lung.

0:26:120:26:14

So here's your first puzzle.

0:26:140:26:16

Your keyword is champagne.

0:26:170:26:18

Tex.

0:26:230:26:25

Mane.

0:26:250:26:26

One point to you, Tex.

0:26:260:26:28

Mitz, you need to get this one right to stay on the team.

0:26:280:26:31

-Mitz.

-Jest?

0:26:380:26:40

-Jest.

-No.

0:26:400:26:42

It's incorrect. Tex, I can offer it over to you.

0:26:430:26:45

-Earn.

-You're saying earn.

0:26:450:26:47

It is the correct answer. Well done, Tex.

0:26:490:26:52

That's two points. Congratulations.

0:26:520:26:55

Tex, you're off to join the team again and, Mitz, I'm sorry,

0:26:560:26:59

but you're going home. It's time for you to clock off.

0:26:590:27:02

APPLAUSE

0:27:020:27:05

Elaine...

0:27:100:27:12

-we find ourselves here.

-We do.

-So, once again, we need to see

0:27:120:27:15

how high you can set the bar as The Boss.

0:27:150:27:18

Again, you're going to face five Boss's Questions.

0:27:180:27:20

For every one you get right, you'll move one place up

0:27:200:27:23

on the money ladder.

0:27:230:27:24

A wrong answer will see you move back down.

0:27:240:27:27

This time, a good round could see your team playing

0:27:270:27:31

for £300 a question.

0:27:310:27:34

But a shocker could mean just £10 into the fund per correct answer.

0:27:340:27:39

Let's see how much of a boss you are with your Boss's Questions.

0:27:390:27:43

Here is your first question.

0:27:470:27:49

-I read these books and I loved them.

-Right.

0:27:560:27:58

And it is the Hunger Games series.

0:27:580:28:01

You seem very, very certain about that.

0:28:010:28:03

I really love the books.

0:28:030:28:04

It is the right answer. Well done. £50.

0:28:040:28:08

Let's see the next question.

0:28:080:28:09

So it's New Zealand or Australia?

0:28:160:28:19

Please let it be New Zealand.

0:28:190:28:21

You're saying New Zealand.

0:28:210:28:23

Let's see if that's right.

0:28:230:28:24

-Yay!

-That's £100.

0:28:260:28:27

Next question.

0:28:280:28:30

Bill Gates, I believe, and hopefully Paul G Allen,

0:28:390:28:41

founded Microsoft.

0:28:410:28:43

You're saying Microsoft.

0:28:430:28:45

Let's see if that's right.

0:28:450:28:46

150.

0:28:490:28:51

Let's see if we can get you up to £300.

0:28:510:28:54

Hippo is, well, Greek probably for horse,

0:29:010:29:04

and hippopotamus means water horse.

0:29:040:29:06

So my answer is horse.

0:29:060:29:08

After giving me a tutorial...

0:29:100:29:12

LAUGHTER

0:29:120:29:14

..on the ancient languages, you're saying the answer is horse.

0:29:140:29:18

Let's see if that's right.

0:29:180:29:21

-It is right. £300.

-That was lucky.

0:29:210:29:25

And final question. Let's see if we can keep you at £300.

0:29:250:29:28

OK, I won't give you a lecture this time.

0:29:340:29:35

-No, please, do, I'm enjoying it. Let me draw up a chair.

-Please do.

0:29:350:29:38

I think I know the answer to this one, too.

0:29:380:29:41

And it's... Let's hope it's potassium.

0:29:410:29:43

-You're saying potassium.

-Yeah.

0:29:430:29:45

From the Greek for pota?

0:29:450:29:47

-Yes, correct.

-LAUGHTER

0:29:470:29:49

Let's see if that's right.

0:29:490:29:50

It is right. Well done.

0:29:520:29:53

300. It's another perfect round, Elaine!

0:29:530:29:56

It's another perfect round, where I have learned as much

0:30:020:30:05

as the viewers at home about the answers to some of those questions.

0:30:050:30:09

OK, let's hope that your team don't let you down in your team game.

0:30:090:30:14

The better that you manage them, the more you can earn.

0:30:140:30:18

There's only two left. Tex and Isobelle.

0:30:180:30:22

Let's play your team questions.

0:30:230:30:25

OK, another two minutes on the clock.

0:30:300:30:32

Let's play.

0:30:320:30:34

-Isobelle.

-Zayn Malik.

0:30:440:30:46

Correct.

0:30:460:30:47

-Tex.

-Green and yellow.

0:30:550:30:57

Correct.

0:30:580:30:59

-Isobelle.

-Brexiteer.

0:31:090:31:10

No, it was post-truth.

0:31:110:31:13

-Tex.

-It was Oscar Wilde.

0:31:190:31:22

Correct.

0:31:220:31:24

-Isobelle.

-Birdie.

0:31:330:31:35

No, it's an albatross.

0:31:370:31:38

-Tex.

-Colombia?

0:31:450:31:47

Correct.

0:31:480:31:49

-Isobelle.

-Sandra Bullock.

0:31:570:31:59

No, it was Julianne Moore.

0:32:000:32:01

-Tex.

-It's a terrier.

0:32:080:32:10

Correct.

0:32:110:32:12

-Tex.

-Hull.

0:32:190:32:22

Correct.

0:32:220:32:23

HOOTER Oh, no!

0:32:300:32:32

The answer to that one was, of course, first-past-the-post.

0:32:320:32:36

Well, Elaine, let me tell you that the person you went to the most was

0:32:360:32:39

Tex, but who was the best player?

0:32:390:32:43

Oh!

0:32:440:32:47

Do you think you should have just gone to Tex more often?

0:32:470:32:49

That seems a bit harsh on Isobelle, but given the scores...

0:32:490:32:53

-Yes.

-..maybe.

-Tex?

0:32:530:32:55

You've done what you said you were going to do.

0:32:560:32:58

-I have.

-It's put a fire in your belly.

-It has indeed.

0:32:580:33:02

And, Isobelle, what's happened? What's happened, Isobelle?

0:33:020:33:04

I don't know. That went awfully.

0:33:040:33:07

No, listen, there's plenty of time and, Elaine,

0:33:070:33:10

you were playing for £300 a question,

0:33:100:33:12

so if we'd played a perfect round,

0:33:120:33:14

you would have added £2,700 to the prize fund.

0:33:140:33:18

In fact, you actually added...

0:33:190:33:21

..£1,800, though, to the prize fund.

0:33:220:33:25

So the total prize fund now stands at...

0:33:250:33:28

-APPLAUSE That's pretty good.

-That's amazing.

0:33:300:33:33

Now we come to the hard part, though.

0:33:330:33:35

Somebody is going to be leaving the show.

0:33:350:33:38

Team, it's over to you.

0:33:420:33:45

This is your last chance to challenge The Boss

0:33:450:33:47

and knock her out of the game, but remember -

0:33:470:33:50

if neither of you challenge, you two will fight it out for survival.

0:33:500:33:55

If you dare to defy...

0:33:560:33:58

challenge now.

0:33:580:34:00

AUDIENCE SHOUTS

0:34:010:34:04

OK, Elaine. Your team have both had the chance

0:34:110:34:14

to contest your leadership.

0:34:140:34:16

Is there any particular one you'd rather not face at this point?

0:34:160:34:19

No, I think both of them kind of have had a bad round

0:34:190:34:22

at one stage, but they really proved themselves after that.

0:34:220:34:25

So if I manage to make it through to The Final,

0:34:250:34:27

then either of those would be a great contestant to have with me.

0:34:270:34:30

OK. Let's see if either of them wants to take you on.

0:34:300:34:34

No-one again!

0:34:420:34:43

LAUGHTER

0:34:430:34:45

-This is what I was hoping for.

-It's what you were hoping for.

0:34:450:34:48

This is what I was hoping for from the start. I hoped that if I could

0:34:480:34:50

keep getting answers right, that people would rather take

0:34:500:34:53

their chances against each other than against me.

0:34:530:34:55

And that just meant that I had to get answers right,

0:34:550:34:57

-so that was the difficult bit.

-Right. And you've done it.

0:34:570:35:00

I did do it. Yay!

0:35:000:35:01

So nobody has challenged you, and that means that Isobelle and Tex

0:35:010:35:06

must now fight it out against each other.

0:35:060:35:08

The winner goes through to The Final, but the loser goes home

0:35:080:35:11

just in the final stages.

0:35:110:35:13

Isobelle and Tex, please come to The Boss's Office.

0:35:130:35:15

Elaine has played a great game and guaranteed herself a place

0:35:220:35:25

in The Final, but who will join her?

0:35:250:35:29

Isobelle and Tex, we've been here before.

0:35:290:35:32

Tantalisingly close, The Final, isn't it? Tantalisingly close.

0:35:320:35:36

-I don't want to go out now.

-No?

-No.

-I'll be honest with you,

0:35:360:35:38

Tex is staring straight ahead in a way that says, "I'm in the zone

0:35:380:35:43

"and no-one's going to push me out of it."

0:35:430:35:45

-Is that how you feel, Tex?

-Well, this is what it's all about now.

0:35:450:35:48

Everything else that's gone before, it's about this moment now.

0:35:480:35:52

-It's about this moment.

-Yeah, bring it on.

-Two expert players.

0:35:520:35:55

Isobelle and Tex, you need to win this challenge

0:35:550:35:59

to keep your place on the show and take your spot in The Final.

0:35:590:36:02

You're both going to play some puzzles.

0:36:020:36:04

Buzz in with the correct answer and you win a point,

0:36:040:36:07

buzz in with an incorrect answer and it gets passed over

0:36:070:36:10

to your opponent.

0:36:100:36:11

It's best of three wins, and the loser goes home.

0:36:110:36:15

Your challenge game is...

0:36:150:36:17

We've taken a word and moved each letter up one place in the alphabet.

0:36:200:36:25

You need to roll each letter back and tell me what the word is.

0:36:250:36:30

There's also a category there to help you out.

0:36:300:36:33

So, let's look at an example. The category is food.

0:36:330:36:35

You roll back the letters and it makes...

0:36:370:36:40

pie.

0:36:400:36:42

To save your place on the show, let's play One Up.

0:36:420:36:46

Here's your first category.

0:36:460:36:48

And here's your word...

0:36:510:36:52

-Isobelle.

-Yellow? No.

0:36:550:36:57

It's incorrect. I can pass it over.

0:36:580:37:00

It's purple.

0:37:000:37:03

You're saying purple.

0:37:030:37:05

APPLAUSE

0:37:050:37:06

Isobelle, you need to answer this one right.

0:37:060:37:09

I don't like this one.

0:37:090:37:10

Let's see our next category.

0:37:100:37:12

Tex.

0:37:170:37:19

Jumper.

0:37:190:37:21

You're saying jumper.

0:37:210:37:23

That is the correct answer. Well done, Tex, well done.

0:37:230:37:28

-Sorry.

-It's OK.

-A bad one for you.

-I don't like that one, yeah.

0:37:280:37:32

-Congratulations, Tex.

-Thank you.

-You're in The Final.

0:37:320:37:35

Isobelle...

0:37:350:37:37

you're going home. I'm really sorry,

0:37:370:37:39

-it's time for you to clock off.

-OK, thank you.

0:37:390:37:41

OK, congratulations, Elaine and Tex.

0:37:490:37:53

You two have fought off the competition

0:37:530:37:55

and made it through to The Final.

0:37:550:37:58

This is where you get to play for the prize fund,

0:37:580:38:00

which currently stands today at...

0:38:000:38:02

-That's a lot of money.

-It really is. It is a lot of money.

0:38:060:38:09

Now, Elaine, I'm going to start with you.

0:38:090:38:10

-You have been The Boss from the very beginning.

-Mm-hm.

0:38:100:38:13

Your tactics were to take the show by the scruff of the neck.

0:38:130:38:16

You've made it as you wanted to.

0:38:160:38:18

-You seem genuinely delighted.

-I'm really happy.

0:38:180:38:21

-Tex...

-Yes.

-..you've had your ups and downs.

0:38:210:38:24

-Yes.

-More downs than ups.

-More downs than ups.

0:38:240:38:27

And are you pleased that it's Tex that you're going to be playing

0:38:270:38:30

-with in The Final?

-Yes, I think he's definitely

0:38:300:38:32

-got a wealth of knowledge.

-She means I'm old.

0:38:320:38:34

LAUGHTER

0:38:340:38:36

Well, best of luck to both of you, as we play The Final.

0:38:360:38:39

This round is all about teamwork.

0:38:460:38:48

You'll face a final five puzzles and will have 90 seconds

0:38:480:38:52

to complete the board.

0:38:520:38:53

Each puzzle is worth an equal share of the prize fund today,

0:39:010:39:04

so that's £618 for each game.

0:39:040:39:08

Every puzzle you play requires two answers,

0:39:080:39:11

one from each of you.

0:39:110:39:13

When each game starts, one of you must buzz in to give one

0:39:130:39:15

of the answers and leave your teammate to give the other.

0:39:150:39:19

But be careful, as a wrong answer or a pass from either of you

0:39:190:39:23

means that category is lost forever.

0:39:230:39:26

Well, Elaine, as you're The Boss, you have the decision

0:39:260:39:30

of where to start.

0:39:300:39:31

-We'll start with geography.

-OK, start the clock.

0:39:310:39:34

Name the country and its capital.

0:39:370:39:40

Ooh!

0:39:400:39:41

Chile.

0:39:430:39:45

-Chile.

-Santiago.

0:39:450:39:46

Correct answer. What's your next category?

0:39:480:39:50

-Art.

-Art. Next...

0:39:500:39:52

..name the work of art and the artist.

0:39:540:39:56

-Elaine.

-Antony Gormley.

-You're saying Antony Gormley.

0:40:000:40:04

The Angel Of The North.

0:40:040:40:05

Angel Of The North, correct, well done.

0:40:050:40:08

-Next category, Elaine?

-Music.

-Music.

0:40:080:40:10

Name the band and the song.

0:40:130:40:14

# Take a sip on my secret potion

0:40:160:40:17

# I'll make you fall in love. #

0:40:170:40:20

-Tex.

-Little Mix.

-Little Mix.

0:40:200:40:22

-Black Magic.

-Black Magic...

0:40:220:40:23

..is the correct answer. LAUGHTER

0:40:250:40:27

-Next category.

-Sport.

-Sport.

0:40:270:40:29

Unscramble the letters to find the name of two English football teams.

0:40:300:40:34

Tex.

0:40:360:40:37

-Everton.

-Everton.

0:40:370:40:39

-Chelsea.

-Chelsea.

0:40:390:40:40

Correct.

0:40:400:40:42

-Last category.

-Politics.

-Politics, let's see the question.

0:40:420:40:46

Name the UK Prime Ministers immediately before and after

0:40:460:40:49

Tony Blair.

0:40:490:40:50

Tex.

0:40:560:40:57

-Gordon Brown.

-Gordon Brown.

0:40:580:41:00

-Yes.

-John Major.

-John Major.

0:41:000:41:03

-Yes! You've done it.

-Well done!

-Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

0:41:030:41:08

-Amazing.

-Congratulations.

0:41:080:41:10

-With two seconds to go.

-With two seconds?

0:41:100:41:13

It was two seconds.

0:41:130:41:14

Well done. Elaine and Tex, you have won...

0:41:140:41:17

Every category answered, every question answered correctly.

0:41:230:41:26

I'm really, really pleased. But we did work so well as a team.

0:41:260:41:29

-It was great.

-Tex?

-How did I get Little Mix?

0:41:290:41:32

-That's what I want to know.

-LAUGHTER

0:41:320:41:35

Well, it's not over yet.

0:41:350:41:39

You now both have one final decision to make.

0:41:390:41:43

You can decide to split the money you've both won today.

0:41:430:41:47

That's £1,545 each.

0:41:470:41:49

Or you can decide to play one final game to find out

0:41:510:41:55

who the ultimate Boss really is.

0:41:550:41:58

The winner of that game will walk away with the

0:41:580:42:00

whole prize fund today.

0:42:000:42:02

That's £3,090.

0:42:020:42:04

And the loser leaves with nothing.

0:42:040:42:07

You both now have five seconds to decide.

0:42:090:42:12

If you want to make one final Leadership Challenge,

0:42:120:42:16

press your buzzers now.

0:42:160:42:18

HOOTER

0:42:220:42:24

Thank you so much.

0:42:270:42:28

I feel like I'm going to cry!

0:42:300:42:32

You've split the prize fund between you and you're both walking away

0:42:320:42:37

today with £1,545.

0:42:370:42:40

-Thank you.

-Well done to both of you. Well done to both of you.

0:42:410:42:44

-Oh, Elaine, it's OK!

-Thank you so much.

0:42:440:42:47

Come on, bring it in, bring it in.

0:42:470:42:49

I wouldn't have blamed you if you would have pressed

0:42:490:42:51

-cos you've done all the hard work.

-No, I didn't.

0:42:510:42:54

Tell me why you didn't press the buzzer, Elaine.

0:42:540:42:56

I just think we both worked really well as a team.

0:42:560:42:58

Tex seems like a really lovely man and I think we both deserve to leave

0:42:580:43:01

-with something.

-No, I am.

0:43:010:43:03

I'm a lovely man.

0:43:030:43:04

Tex, why didn't you press your buzzer?

0:43:040:43:07

Cos she deserved it. She deserved the whole lot really,

0:43:070:43:09

cos she's been there...

0:43:090:43:11

right from the word go.

0:43:110:43:14

Oh, my word!

0:43:140:43:16

I'm delighted for both of you.

0:43:160:43:18

All that's left for me to say is thanks for watching.

0:43:180:43:21

Join us again next time as we find out what it takes to really be

0:43:210:43:25

The Boss. I'll see you then.

0:43:250:43:26

Susan Calman hosts the quiz show of tactics, knowledge and nerve. Contestants must work as a team, but ultimately there can only be one Boss. Who will pick off their opponents and walk away with the thousands of pounds on offer?
