A question about Khloe Kardashian left the quizzers on Channel 5’s Eggheads stumped.
The long-running game show features teams of contestants trying to beat a panel of professional quizzers in a test of their general knowledge.
The Eggheads were asked which member of the Kardashian family has been linked to basketball player Tristan Thompson.
Olav, Steve, Kevin and Lisa couldn’t decide between Khloe or Kourtney as neither of them could keep up with the Kardashians.
Lisa admitted: “They’re not my favorites. I don’t stay near her. It’s between Khloe and Kourtney. I think they date more than one basketball player.”
“I was told the other day. Kourtney, I think she’s dating a basketball player, but I think one or two of them are dating basketball players,” Steve said.
Eventually, they ended up with the sister, who is actually engaged to Blink 182 rocker Travis Barker.
“It should be obvious by now that we don’t really know, so we’re going to go with Kourtney Kardashian,” Kevin said.
This is the third time that the quizzers have lost to amateurs in the past few weeks.
The amateurs won the £3,000 cash prize this week.
Earlier on in the show, the Eggheads said they were feeling “amazing” and “ready” for a match.
After the episode, Lisa took to Twitter to joke about getting the wrong Kardashian in reply.
“Oopsy. After that show, Beth gave me a useful introduction to all things Kardashian. I call it my Karcrashian class,” she tweeted.

One viewer replied: “I’ve never screamed so much on TV in my life. I thought that would be the easiest question of the night, but I love reality TV.”
Some have been shocked by the number of losses the quizzes have suffered recently.
One user said, “That’s 3 wins in the new series now!”
“Awkward loss for the Eggs 4v1 with Kevin and Olaf in their starting lineup,” one wrote, to which Lisa replied, “They should all be embarrassed. That’s the point of the show.” (Spoilers: I wasn’t embarrassed).”
Another added: “A lot of challengers are winning lately!”
Eggheads originally aired on BBC but switched to Channel 5 last year.
“The program I’ve presented for more than 10 years, Eggheads, one of the biggest quizzes in British television history, will be televised on Channel 5 later this year,” presenter Jeremy Vine said at the time.
