Contestant loses Temptation on name pronunciation

Posted in Nine Network at 6:50 pm by Give Me The Remote

Okay, so perhaps make up your own minds on this one. But I reckon it was pretty tough on the carry over champ. I think his name was David but not sure.

I’ve forgotten the question, but the answer was Maria Callas and the champ pronounced her last name ‘Callay’. The judges ruled it incorrect and he ended up losing by 1 point. He wasn’t happy about it either.. straight after the game finished you could see him speaking his mind to the contestant next to him (the winner).

Maria Callas
The lady in question.. Maria Callas

I guess the judges decision is final… and had they given it to him it could have been seen as unfair on the lady who won. It’s a tough one..
