TIPPING Point fans were left in utter disbelief after a contestant answered a series of questions with “ridiculous” answers.
The ITV game show tests the knowledge and skill of players, however, one participant during Friday afternoon’s episode drew the criticism of viewers.
Stepping up in a bid to win the coveted £10,000 jackpot counter was Mark, but his general knowledge appeared to let him down.
Ben Shephard asked the electrician a number of questions and, with some of them almost giving away the answer, he failed to capitalise.
The host first asked: “The epiglottis is situated at the root of which organ in the mouth?”
Feeling confident, Mark replied: “Tooth,” however, he was brutally shut down by Ben who revealed: “Tongue.”

Mark’s embarrassment did stop there, as Ben gave him a chance for redemption, asking: “A monowheel is a form of transport that has how many wheels?”
Straight in with the answer Mark guessed: “Four” – but Ben soon revealed: “One.”
His flurry of incorrect answers in quick succession didn’t go unnoticed by viewers either, with many dubbing the sparky as “one of the worst players of all time”.
Taking to Twitter, one person penned: “I think Mark would rather be somewhere else. He’s not very good at this, is he?”

Echoing their comments, someone else said: “Mark really shouldn’t have come on Tipping Point. I mean, talk about giving the dumbest answers of all time…”
While a third added: “Mark just loves looking into the camera – even after his demise. Ridiculous answers. Awful Player. Go home.”
Tipping Point airs weekdays from 4pm on ITV.
