Sorry Leather Vest, Twitter Has a New Favourite University Challenge Contestant

This week on University Challenge, Wolfson College Cambridge were up against SOAS.

But even if you actually managed to answer a couple of questions correctly, that wouldn’t have been the highlight of the show. Wolfson College’s team captain definitely stole it.


Last year a contestant wore a leather vest and everyone lost their minds.

But Twitter has a new favourite contestant now. #Monkman.

In case you missed it, here’s a clip of him saying “Stephen”.

He also said “Ceres” which was equally incredible beyond explanation.

That stare.

Some people started drawing similarities.

And though he didn’t have the best evening…

Wolfson College beat SOAS, meaning we get to see Monkman again.
