No. of Questions Answered in Cash Builder

As long time watchers of the show would suspect, the number of questions got through in the cash builder round isn't as many as it was. Series 1 and 2 averaged about 12 questions answered in the 60 seconds. This had dropped to 11 for series 3 and 4, and has dropped to 9.6 for series 12.

So it isn't surprising that cash builder scores are coming down, as they are being asked fewer questions. If we look at accuracy, the percentage of questions that are answered correctly, then since series 3 this has hovered around the 50% mark.

% Head-To-Head Questions Answered Correctly by Cash Builder Total

Not surprisingly, there is a reasonable correlation between cash builder score, and the percentage of questions players went on to get right in the head-to-head round. Bizarrely, the person who got the highest ever cash builder total of £14,000 only got 2 out of 6 questions right in the head-to-head. The highest percentage, 73%, has been achieved by players with a cash builder of £11,000. Players who earned £0 in their cash builder, are the only ones on average who go on to get more questions wrong than right in the head-to-head.

Likelihood of Winning Head-To-Head by Position On Table

This table follows each player, question by question, on their journey down the head-to-head board. It shows how many steps they have to go, and how far behind the chaser is.

It's probably easier to explain with some examples. Note: In series 1, players had to answer 1 more question to get home than they have done since. So players going high had to answer 7 questions and not 6 to get home.
