Win My Wage, Channel 4

by | Jul 16, 2007 | All, Reviews

Did we like it?

It’s a show designed for those blank-minded folk who’re devoted to Deal Or No Deal – so we hated it.

What was good about it?

• Presenter Nick Hancock pulls out all the stops to try to make us care if the contestant can guess which of the grinning, near-silent panelists earns the biggest salary. He failed, however.

What was bad about it?

• Spending 45 minutes on a lethargic guessing game is a waste of life.

• We dislike cocky contestants – and Mike from Rotherham fitted that category far too perfectly. And his highlights are so last century.

• Whatever happened to Hancock’s vow that he’d given up crap TV to take up the much worthier (?) job as a mortgage broker.
