“These people are under pressure in an environment and their minds go blank and they can’t think of anything and the words don’t make sense,” says Ben. And I just have so much admiration for all of them.

“There have been some amazing responses, but it’s fair to all the participants, it was incredibly brave of them to take on the machine. And I hate to think that someone is going to be nervous about walking in because they’re worried about making a fool of themselves, because I’ve done that on a number of occasions and continue to make my own. I become stupid all the time.

“And it’s really hard not to think of the machine as a living, breathing thing that you can mold to your will. When it doesn’t get paid or it goes in the wrong direction, you get really angry. I really feel uncomfortable with the machine. It feels like she doesn’t like some contestants, for whatever reason.”
