|The Question Jury is a reality quiz show with a difference. Catch it on Channel 4!|
The quiz is set in a Jury Room with hidden cameras and a 'virtual judge' which the contestants hear from and speak to via an intercom system and who leads the game. The seven jurors must work together to build up their prize fund to try and win up to £10,000. There are seven questions each episode, 3 of which are quick fire rounds and each juror gets the chance to be the foreman to lead the debate and together they much reach a unanimous answer to win the money. At the end the jury have to choose one member to walk away with the prize fund! Sounds simple doesn't it.... I visited the Jury Room to give it a go with six women I had never met before - believe it's much harder than it sounds!
The questions are designed to promote discussion and debate and to bring out people's personality traits. They are questions with answers that aren't straight forward and where you could be easily influenced by another member of the Jury. As we were there with Netmums they gave us some family based questions to answer and they were really tricky. Everyone had different ideas and we really had to work together, listen to each other and support each other. For example if I was to ask you and a group of friends what the second highest ingredient in terms of content of tomato ketchup was I am sure you would come up with several options... we certainly did and debated between vinegar and water for some time, eventually putting it to a vote... I'll solve any arguments and tell you that it's vinegar before you go rushing off to the fridge! We actually got it wrong and gave water as our answer for this... Another of our questions was how many people can call the Queen Grandma/Great Grandma? In true mum style we went round the table and counted on our fingers and got this one right!
