Eggheads 

12 Yard Productions are pleased to announce that the BBC2 quiz show ‘Eggheads’ is back for a 16th series.

We’re looking for fantastic teams to challenge our resident quiz show Goliaths!

What’s it all about?

Everyday a new team of challengers take on our general knowledge masters – The Eggheads – in 5 rounds of heavy hitting quizzing, hosted by Jeremy Vine, for a chance to win a cash prize.

Who are the Eggheads?

The ‘Eggheads’ are 8 of arguably the countries best quizzers.

  • Judith Keppel: the 1st person to win a million pounds on ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’
  • Kevin Ashman: multiple times world quiz champion, ‘Mastermind’ and ‘Brain of Britain’ winner.
  • Dave Rainford: known as 'Tremendous Knowledge Dave'.  Won £250,000 on ‘Who Wants To Be a Millionaire’.
  • Chris Hughes: former winner of ‘Brain of Britain’ and an international ‘Mastermind’ champion.
  • Barry Simmons: 1st winner of ‘Are You An Egghead?’ and Mastermind semi-finalist.
  • Pat Gibson: 2nd winner of ‘Are You An Egghead?’, world quiz champion and winner of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’
  • CJ de Mooi: the bad boy of quizzing and winner of multiple TV quiz shows.
  • Lisa Thiel: winner of ‘Revenge of the Egghead’ and finalist on the ‘Weakest Link’.

How does it work?

In every show there are 4 individual question rounds, in which a player is asked up to 3 multiple choice questions on subjects such as Sport, Music, Food and Drink, Arts and Books, Politics, History, Geography, Science and Film & TV.

The winner of each round secures themselves an extra brain to play for their team in the final general knowledge round!  The more category rounds a team wins the more players are left to confer in the final round.

In each show, the challengers have the chance to win a minimum of £1,000. If the Eggheads win, this money rolls over to the next show. Previous challengers have won tens of thousands of pounds.

Who can apply as a team?

We are looking for teams of 6 (5 players and a stand-by) with a good level of general knowledge and a real passion for quizzing who would like to give it a go.

You don’t even need to be an existing quiz team, why not create a team of friends, family or workmates? The only rule is that you know one another.

All applicants must be aged 18 years or over and be legally resident and currently living in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.

Who’s taken part in the past?

It’s not just pub quiz teams who apply.  We’ve had a complete array of teams on previous series including:

  • The Everton Ladies Football Team
  • Bell ringers
  • A team of brothers & their best men
  • Truck drivers
  • Miss Englands
  • Ex housemates – 40 years on
  • Family teams
  • Teams of friends
  • Methodist Ministers
  • Beat boxers
  • Pub quiz teams
  • Primary school teachers
  • Prison wardens
  • Radio DJs
  • A team of psychics
  • A team of postmen
  • Insurance brokers

And that’s just to name a few…

What happens next?

We will be speaking to teams who apply over the next few weeks, and starting auditions shortly after that. Selected teams will be invited to an audition where we will play the game and explain the casting process.

For an application form email: eggheads@12yard.com

Or write to: Eggheads Applications, 12 Yard Productions, G7, The Hub, 70 Pacific Quay, Glasgow G51 1DZ

All applicants must be aged 18 years or over and be legally resident and currently living in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.

The closing date for returning application forms is by midnight on 14th November 2014.
