This University Challenge contestant has the most University Challenge name ever


UNIVERSITY CHALLENGE lit up our screens last night, with its traditional motley crew of upper-crust English people.

But only one contestant truly bossed it in the name department.

And that man was… Barto Joly de Lotbiniere, of York University.


“Joly de Lotbiniere” is JUST HIS SURNAME. His first name is Barto.

Truly, Barto Joly de Lotbiniere is all of us.

Meanwhile, on the opposing team, a man named Kitchen returned to our screens. He was answering questions for Christ’s College Cambridge, giving rise to this immortal voiceover performance:

University Challenge forever!
