Tipping Point viewers in hysterics after decaf coffee question blunder

Tipping Point viewers were stunned to see contestant Samantha make an awkward blunder as she got what the audience perceived to be an easy question.

Samantha herself appeared shocked when she realised that she had got the question wrong, as she realised the answer immediately.

When asked what the term decaf is short for, Samantha responded: "Caffeine."

As host Ben Shephard read out the answer as decaf, even Samantha looked stunned that she got the answer incorrect.

Viewers quickly took to Twitter to chuckle at her answer, with one user writing: "Ah decaf, that famous caffeine drink."

While another joked: "She seems tense, she should switch to decaffeinated."

A third person simply wrote: "Oh dear."

However, despite Samantha's awkward blunder, she managed to get through to the third round with a whopping £1,050 after her counter which went into the machine landed her a chunk of cash.

Samantha headed into the third round after landing an extra £900 alongside Robert who brought £1,200 with him.

Sadly, Samantha's time was cut short as she didn't manage to make it further than the final and didn't manage to get a single counter through to the machine.

Robert went through to the final with £1,900, a £700 increase on his cash from the third round.

It clearly ended up being good for Robert as he powered right through to land £10,000 in the jackpot prize – alongside a trip to Venice and a helicopter flight experience.

Often players will be offered a trade to get three extra counters in a bid to see if they can get the £10,000, but Robert was lucky enough to get it beforehand.
