    This Correct Guess In The Final Round Of "Pointless" Is Absolutely Sensational

    Just what are the odds of it being right?

    So a really strange and amazing thing happened in Pointless yesterday. In case you're unfamiliar with the show, in the final round the contestants have to choose one of four topics that are shown on the screen.

    Those are the contestants in yesterday's show: Tasha and Jo.

    The contestants then have to get a "Pointless" answer. It's a correct answer that no one in a poll of 100 people had also chosen. After Tasha and Jo chose the year 2000, they were given this topic.

    The other topics they could choose answers for were the film Snatch and the 2000 Brit Awards.

    They could make three guesses that could be spread around any of those categories.

    Tasha and Jo were then given a minute to choose their answers. In that minute, footballer Henrik Larsson was immediately selected as an answer.
