Game show host Tom Gleeson was astonished when he met a “too attractive” Indian contestant on Hard Quiz, an Australian game show. “I think you might be the most attractive person we’ve ever had on this show. It’s really thrown me,” said Gleeson, in the video clip above. “This is supposed to be a quiz for nerds, what are you doing here?”
Theja, the contestant in question, was all charm. Gleeson however has a reputation for grilling Australian celebrities according to news.com.au, and he couldn’t resist turning up the heat, which led to a game of wits between the two.
He asked Theja, “Your family’s from India, you’re a dentist, and your expert subject is Sachin Tendulkar... are you a cliché?” Theja’s response has won the internet, with the video being circulated by charmed viewers.
