Aquatic sewing machine

Series 8 / Episode 8

Greg Davies and his servile serf Alex Horne do love to be beside the seaside, even when they’re not beside the seaside. This perhaps explains why the tasks in this episode feature sand, beach balls, water and an angler’s keepnet. There are also coffee pots, which don’t help Joe Thomas, and a trumpet, which doesn’t help Lou Sanders. Plus one foolhardy player risks the considerable wrath of the unforgiving Taskmaster.

Tasks

Prize: Nicest thing to hold.

Make the best portrait of a former Taskmaster contestant using sand and one tool. You must randomly select your tool with the die. Only air may touch the sand.

Team: Catch the red balls in things from the shed. Catch the yellow balls in clothing. Don't let the green balls touch anything other than the grass. Catch the blue ball with something from the kitchen. Red balls are 1 point, yellow balls are 2 points, the blue ball is 5 points and every green ball you touch is -2 points.

Get the beach ball across the finishing line. Only water can touch the beach ball.

Live: Complete the five-syllable word started by the Taskmaster. An earlier guess scores more points. Guess incorrectly and lose all your points.
