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.

Loving Monkman on University Challenge. Like a young Roy Cropper.

And though he didn’t have the best evening…
Wolfson College beat SOAS, meaning we get to see Monkman again.
