Ohh wow I really thought I had blown it in the literature round and then there seeing some of my answers flopping like Lost in Translation, Vida la Vida and Ivory Coast. I actually had kettle down originally as well for things you put on after waking up but changed to clothes just before I sent my answers

Unlucky Daniel, thought you were the other one in the top two and do feel like I've robbed you there a bit lol

Thanks for running Shaun, enjoyed the diversity of the rounds a lot

Got quite lucky on that BB housemates name one as well, did control F on the list of housemates and first one I tried was John and then James when that didn't work out, find it really surprising that there's never been a James in there

Half wondered if people would be put off answering that by John James though

21 voters this time, meaning an incorrect answer is worth a whopping 42 points

Pointless

1) Pick a name that's never been the name of a BBUK Housemate

Shaun - Kim (the male Kim)
Strictly Jake - Betty
Niamh - Sinead
Denver - Calix
Rob! - Stacey
Mitchell - Mitchell
Liam- - Brandon
Amy Jade - Kelly
Cherie - Fiadh
MB - Erica
MTVN - Keith
Calderyon - Olivia
Matthew. - Twila
Smithy - Raymond
Jake - Connor (this was really taking the piss )
Tony Montana - Matilda
AnnieK - Ian
Black Dagger - Lucas
Cal - Ibrahim
Jessica - William
Babayaro - Fernando


'Connor' and 'Raymond' were paper-thin correct answers because of Ray from BB4 and Conor from BB13 but I'll allow them, meaning everyone is pointless.

2) Name a single released by Coldplay

Shaun - Up in Flames
Strictly Jake - Ink
Niamh - Shiver
Denver - Moving to Mars
Rob! - Clocks
Mitchell - Princess of China

Liam- - Talk
Amy Jade - Always in My Head
Cherie - A Message

MB - Talk
MTVN - Square One
Calderyon - Atlas

Matthew. - Speed of Sound
Smithy - Yellow
Jake - Daddy
Tony Montana - Paradise
AnnieK - Christmas Lights
Black Dagger - Moses
Cal - Strawberry Swing
Jessica - O

Babayaro - Speed of Sound


2pts each for Talk and Speed of Sound; I guess going for bang in the middle of their discography (with 2005's "X&Y") was not the best strategy!

3) Name a country that was a part of, or parts of it were a part of, the French colonial empire at some point

Shaun - St. Lucia
Strictly Jake - Brazil
Niamh - Chad

Denver - Niger
Rob! - Dominica
Mitchell - Cote D'Ivoire
Liam- - Comoros
Amy Jade - Canada
Cherie - Gabon
MB - Cambodia
MTVN - India

Calderyon - Dominica
Matthew. - Benin
Smithy - St Kitts & Nevis
Jake - Cote D'Ivoire
Tony Montana - Madagascar
AnnieK - St Kitts & Nevis
Black Dagger - Niger
Cal - St. Lucia
Jessica - Benin
Babayaro - Senegal


A couple of you did name territories or parts of countries that were indeed a part of the French empire at some point, but forgot to word them as modern day countries... so I amended a few answers and made them what I was looking for. If you aren't pointless here, you score 2pts, since no three people said the same thing.

4) Name someone who has become famous as a YouTuber

Shaun - TomSka
Strictly Jake - Madilyn Bailey
Niamh - Nick Pro
Denver - Brennan Donnelly
Rob! - Ajey Nagar (CarryMinati)
Mitchell - Niki Albon
Liam- - Troye Sivan
Amy Jade - James A. Janisse (Dead Meat)
Cherie - Vexxed IRL
MB - Stephanie Soo
MTVN - Justin Bieber
Calderyon - Tyrone Magnus
Matthew. - AmazingPhil
Smithy - James Turner
Jake - Samuel de Luque (Vegetta777)
Tony Montana - Konrad Dantas (KondZilla)
AnnieK - DanTDM
Black Dagger - Jaackmaate
Cal - Eleanor Neale
Jessica - Lucas Cruikshank
Babayaro - Billy Wingrove


The world was really your oyster with this question and it shows. No same answers.

5) Name a country whose flag contains the colour yellow

Shaun - Papua New Guinea
Strictly Jake - Romania

Niamh - Kyrgyzstan
Denver - Central African Republic
Rob! - Bahamas
Mitchell - Colombia
Liam- - Gabon
Amy Jade - Seychelles
Cherie - Kazakhstan
MB - Haiti
MTVN - Vatican City
Calderyon - Argentina
Matthew. - Mali
Smithy - Jamaica
Jake - Belgium
Tony Montana - St. Lucia
AnnieK - China

Black Dagger - Kyrgyzstan
Cal - Sweden
Jessica - Bolivia
Babayaro - Bosnia & Herzegovina


An almost perfect round until Lucas came along and RUINED it with Sporcle's favourite country.

6) Name a plant or flower that would be considered a "weed"

Shaun - Canada thistle
Strictly Jake - Tasmanian ngaio
Niamh - Giant hogweed
Denver - Miner's lettuce
Rob! - Groundsel
Mitchell - Chickweed
Liam- - Velvetleaf
Amy Jade - Birds-foot trefoil
Cherie - Wild parsley
MB - Sexton's bride
MTVN - Himalayan Balsam
Calderyon - Poison sumac
Matthew. - Dandelion
Smithy - Speedwell
Jake - Herb robert
Tony Montana - Hedge bindweed
AnnieK - Oxalis

Black Dagger - Hairy bittercress
Cal - Stinging nettles
Jessica - Bridal creeper

Babayaro - Hairy bittercress


I am not going to pretend I am an expert in botany so I wasn't too sure if all of these were technically correct, but a quick google certainly seemed to vouch for all of them. Just a few shared answers - if you want to be a snitch and point out that 2 people have said different names for the same thing, feel free, because drama is valuable Hence why I've technically taken the opportunity to imply that Niamh is a giant hogweed.

7) Name a film that was directed by a woman, or women

Shaun - The Girl in the Book (2015)
Strictly Jake - The Secret Garden (1993)
Niamh - As If I'm Not There (2010)
Denver - Desires of the Heart (2008)
Rob! - Mamma Mia! (2008)
Mitchell - Frozen (2013)
Liam- - Love and Anarchy (1973)
Amy Jade - See No Evil 2 (2014)
Cherie - The Asthenic Syndrome (1990)
MB - Plush (2013)
MTVN - The Hitch-Hiker (1953)
Calderyon -Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975)
Matthew. - La Fťe aux Choux (1896) - first film directed by a woman
Smithy - The Matrix 4 (???)
Jake - They (2017)
Tony Montana - Near Dark (1987)
AnnieK - Something's Gotta Give (2003)
Black Dagger - We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011)
Cal - K-19: The Widowmaker (2002)
Jessica - Michelle Bello
Babayaro - The Bling Ring (2013)


As Top Answers proved, you kinda misread this question Jess, sorry I couldn't really salvage anything from your answer because she's directed four different films. I'm torn about allowing Smithy's answer here because I did say "was directed", not "will be directed"

8) Name something you might put on after waking up

Shaun - "Some Kinda Rush" by Booty Luv
Strictly Jake - Shaving foam
Niamh - A toe ring
Denver - Condom
Rob! - This Morning
Mitchell - Good Morning Britain
Liam- - The light
Amy Jade - Dry shampoo
Cherie - Gym gear
MB - A niqab
MTVN - A happy face
Calderyon - Wedding ring
Matthew. - TV
Smithy - face oil
Jake - Work laptop
Tony Montana - slippers
AnnieK - Glasses
Black Dagger - Hand cream
Cal - Contact lenses
Jessica - A panty liner
Babayaro - Milkshake! on Channel 5


The one instance where I was hoping someone would put the same answer as myself.

9) Name a video game series that begins with the letter F

Shaun - Fire Emblem
Strictly Jake - Flowers
Niamh - Full Spectrum Warrior
Denver - Football Manager
Rob! - FIFA
Mitchell - Final Fantasy
Liam- - Five Nights at Freddy's
Amy Jade - Fear Effect

Cherie - Formula 1 / F1
MB - First Kiss Story
MTVN - Farming Simulator
Calderyon - Front Mission
Matthew. - Forza Horizon
Smithy - FIFA Street
Jake - Frogger
Tony Montana - Fable
AnnieK - Fallout
Black Dagger - Fire Pro Wrestling

Cal - Formula 1 / F1
Jessica - Fairly Odd Parents
Babayaro - Fat Princess


Quite astonished there was only one shared answer here, given the limitations.

10) Name a popular TV news channel

Shaun - Kanali 7 (Albania)
Strictly Jake - Sky News
Niamh - RTE News Now
Denver - Africanews

Rob! - Euronews
Mitchell - Fox News
Liam- - CNC World
Amy Jade - Newsmax TV
Cherie - France 24
MB - E.tv ('News and Sports' in South Africa)
MTVN - Press TV
Calderyon - TV2 Nyhetskanalen

Matthew. - Al Jazeera
Smithy - ABC Australia
Jake - CNN-News18

Tony Montana - Al Jazeera
AnnieK - Euronews
Black Dagger - MSNBC
Cal - Fox News
Jessica - RTP3
Babayaro - Newsmax TV


A lot of variety of shared answers here, so again no more damage than 2 points - even if it is to a lot of scores.

Scores

MTVN - 0
Strictly Jake - 0
Amy Jade - 2
Calderyon - 2
Cherie - 2
