Win A Free Bet For Recognising People

by Aidan Elder | September 27, 2011

As it looks like last week’s competition wasn’t ruined by a combination of cheating and Google searches, we’re rehashing the Picture Board game to prove it either was or wasn’t a fluke. Either way we’ll know this time next week.

It’s exactly the same as last week, expect for the fact it’s completely different.
Simply identify as many of the people in the pictures below as you can.

Win A Free Bet

It’s going to work the same way as last week – i.e. you’re allowed more than one guess, but it’s your most recent guess that will count so if your first entry gets all 12 right and you decide to enter a second time later and only get 11 right in your ‘improved’ attempt, that’s the one that will count. Send your entries to with the subject line “I’m all over this”. Or just leave it blank – it doesn’t really make a difference either way.

Feel free to use the comments section to distribute red herrings and wild geese aplenty or engage in some ill-founded bragging, but anything entered in the comments section WILL NOT COUNT as an entry into the competition. The winner will be whoever gets the most correct answers. If a few people get the same number of correct answers, the winner will be drawn at random. If there are two people tied on the same number of correct answers, we can explore possibility of splitting the eventual prize, but we’ll cross that bridge if and when we come to it.

This bit is important:
Although you are allowed more than one guess, please note that only your most recent guess will be counted. So if you have a guess today and get 9 right and then have a rethink, make some changes and guess again on – let’s say – Saturday only to get 8 right, then it’s the 8 that will count. Sorry, it’s tough, but otherwise we could potentially have an infinite amount of combinations of answers.

The prize will start off as a €/£50 Free Bet, but if you want to increase that, simply pimp it around the various social networks. For every retweet of this tweet or share on Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn, we’ll add €/£1 to the size of the free bet, which should increase it’s size substantially.

Good luck and I’ll be available for competition related queries (not clues) on this blog or via Twitter @AidanWaffles_PP

Get your answers in before midnight on Sunday 2nd October.

- Paddy Power decision is final in the event there’s some loophole I haven’t thought of.
– Maximum prize is a €/£150 Free Bet.
– Entrants must be over the age of 18, have a account and remember two Question of Sport captains who aren’t Matt ‘cheeky geezer’ Dawson and Phil ‘cheekier geezer’ Tufnell.

    No-one has got all 12 answers right yet, so it’s great chance to win. Get the thinking caps on.
    All 12 people have been identified, but not by one person, so no clues I’m afraid.

    Number 7 is a bit of a pig. It’s probably Marcelo Salas on a skiing holiday or something.

    Yeah, you stick with “Louis” (or even “Lewis”) Hamilton, richie, you’ll go far ! Wrong sport – try a ball, not a car !

    […] during the recording of the show, but also because it’s more difficult than I thought. Last week I actually thought I was making it easier than the first week, but the level of correct answers coming through last week suggested it was substantially harder. […]
