Someone Wore a Leather Vest On University Challenge Last Night

University Challenge, a wonderfully nerdy and quintessentially British piece of television, was taken by surprise last night. And the internet, inevitably, reacted appropriately.

This is Karmel Shah of King’s College Cambridge. 

He took University Challenge by storm last night with his choice of clothing.

The History undergrad was last night likened to a fetish enthusiast, a member of a 90s boyband and Ross Geller from Friends. 

King’s captain, Jack Smith, sported a much more sensible owl jumper. Much to the confusion of everyone.

It wasn’t just his leather, but his brooding reactions to Paxman’s questions that caught people’s attention.

Nobody can remember what the score was, or even who won. The vest is all that matters.
