The 'popular' BBC quiz show for smart arsed students, University Challenge was left reeling by yet another scandal today. It has been revealed that the show's host, Jeremy Paxo, is not qualified to present the show.
Paxo had taken over from long running quiz-master Paul 'Bambi' Gascoigne when the latter' s drink induced mental health problems got out of control. But Paxo failed to inform the Beeb that he had left his position with Newsnight.
Paxo had instead started a career as a sycophant, making television programs about Royalty and rich folk. The Beeb was under the impression that he was still a hard-nosed investigative reporter who knew how to ask questions. Paxo denies misleading the programs bosses, saying that he informed them of his changing circumstances. A BBC spokesperson has denied this.
This scandal comes hot on the heals of the events in the final when the girl they are calling 'Miss Google', Jane Google, scored 900,000 points with the aid of an accountant. This new scandal has made fans fear for the show's future.
