Tasks

Prize: The best single-word object you own and love that gets the best reaction when introduced following a drum roll.

This is not a team task. Find the secret task. You must never be in the same room as each other. Whenever the air horn sounds, you must replace anything you are holding and change rooms. Everyone must find the secret task before the task ends. / This is the secret task. If you found this task fastest, you must choose one contestant who will lose five points. If you found it second fastest, you must choose one contestant who will lose one point. If you found it third fastest, you must choose one contestant who will get a special hat. If you found it fourth fastest, you must choose a contestant who will gain a point. If you found it slowest, you must choose one contestant who will gain five points. You must not choose yourself. You must shout the name of your contestant in 10 seconds from now.

Complete the fortune trail.

Convince a child you're asleep. You must either have a nap lasting one minute with your face visible throughout - during this nap, you must snore and sleepwalk - or you must have a nap lasting one minute where you are not in bed at all, but the child thinks you are. During this nap, you must snore and sleeptalk.

Team Live: Mime the proverb on your card. There will be three minute-long rounds. You must be waving at each other throughout your attempt, but you can make a single noise of the Taskmaster's choosing.
