Maybe some form of audience participation too to keep the thread interesting for the punters and ex contestants (Zenigame) though I don't know what.
I think those twists were too much.
I don't think that participation in the contest should be decided like that. At a push, okay, the one to bring a player back in is probably alright, but kicking someone out is too harsh. As I said at the time, it does discriminate against the favourite too much. It wasn't Drummy's fault, as any of the other players would have seen you as the logical one to kick out.
The problem with audience - or eliminated-contestant - participation is getting the balance right. It needs to be the right kind of participation. Imagine how much worse the outcry would be if one of them got their hands on a DML TWIST!
and could knock someone out?
It would have to be quite a trivial thing available to them. Like shaking up the teams, picking a question category etc. Saying that, I think my Eggheads idea could use a team of 5 ex-contestants quite well - scoring individual competitors on how they do against a panel. The informed minority beating the ignorant majority, if you will; the mighty Guru even able to beat 5 "lesser" ex-contestants.
There's a definitely a part they can play.
