Presenter Ben Shephard, 47, asked the worried-looking English teacher who Kendelle, the British monarch in power when Tony Blair was Prime Minister.
Hesitating a little, she replied, “Erm, Queen Victoria?”
The Good Morning Britain presenter couldn’t hide his amusement before giving Queen Elizabeth ll’s exact answer to the teacher.
The viewers at home couldn’t believe what they were watching.
Taking to Twitter to announce the contestant, one said: “” Queen Victoria? That’s the worst answer on #TippingPoint. ”
Another added: “I can’t believe she thought Tony Blair was Prime when Queen Victoria was on the throne #TippingPoint.”
While a third asked: “Am I dreaming? She actually said Queen Victoria #tippingpoint.”
The ITV quiz show four contestants using the Tipping Point machine to try and win as much money as possible.
However after his royal mistake, Kendelle was eventually eliminated in the second round.
Her teammates Johnny and David then went head to head in the third round.
Johnny was the one who won, however, instead of going for a big buck, he chose to take home £2,900 rather than risk it all in the hope of making £10,000.
This is not the first time Tipping Point has caused a stir on social media.
Last month, fans couldn’t understand how hot one of the contestants was.
While audiences watched the movie on the popular show, they found themselves swooning over an attractive father-of-two from Somerset.
Terry’s wake was also a point of discussion among eagle-eyed fans, who said he was conveying ‘military chic’.
The nimble locksmith wore a khaki green short-sleeved T-shirt, the t-shirt showing his muscles.
Taking to Twitter to share their reaction, one viewer exclaimed: “Terry is like me, he’s so hot #tippingpoint.”
“Oh my gosh!!! Terry on Tipping Point is the man of my dreams! Look at his arm #tippingpoint,” echoed another.
While a third joked: “Didn’t know Tipping Point was hiring models. Terry was too hot for this show.”
