Stay humble

Series 8 / Episode 5

This hard-fought series is about to reach the halfway mark. To celebrate, Taskmaster Greg Davies invites all five contestants to have some global fun with  a beach ball. Elsewhere, will Lou Sanders wise words for the youth of today hit home? Can Paul Sinha invent a revolutionary new use for a basketball? And will Sian Gibson rescue Little Alex Horne from the sharp beak of an aquatic bird? Answers: maybe, possibly, and probably not.

Tasks

Prize: Best face.

Divert the sand from bucket A to bucket B. You may not touch the sand, move the buckets or leave the room.

Make the most realistic injury using food. If two or more people use ketchup, they are disqualified.

Team: Play a game of long distance catch with this beach ball. One team member must throw the ball offscreen to another team member who catches it in a different place, and so on over the longest apparent distance.

Herd the most ping pong balls into the pen. You may only touch the balls with the basketball, the string or one little finger. You may not move the pens. (Secret Instruction: Herd this ball and you halve your total)

Live: Recreate the scene after you parade past.
