KBC 3 – the season finale

Well well, it must have been my joblessness, or the sun taking its toll on me. Nevertheless I decided to watch the KBC 3 (Kaun Banega Crorepati) – the “grand” finale, “starring” Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, knowing fully well that this show had lost its status and had started showing traits of “Coffee with Karan” ever since the “wannabe” Big B SRK had taken over. But little did I realize that things were leaps worse than I thought it would be. Just to give you a brief history, “KBC – the first” was one my favorite shows in the past. I used to make sure that I didnt miss any of the episodes, just to see how much I would earn, had I been in the “hot seat”. Not that I ever managed to get close to a crore, but it still had a touch of class and the seriousness of a quiz contest.

A “comparative” study of KBC1 and KBC3 (i have not seen a KBC2 episode yet), in itself would become a Gartner Report and hence would not be covered in this entry ;-). Anyway, this episode was perhaps a bad choice in its own terms, owing to the fact that the people involved were never meant to be on those “hot seats”, otherwise. Expectations were really low, and so were the standard of questions. But the following caught me off guard.

Question : Which is the race associated with the event Tour de France?

A. Marathon.
B. Formula 1
C. Decathlon
D. Cycling
(I dont entirely remember the options that were provided. Hence the B and C were made up, since they didnt seem relevant to the point of discussion ;-))

The answer came within seconds as D, from Katrina Kaif. Although that too surprised me a little bit, what followed as an explanation to why she chose D, left me speechless!! So here it comes.

Apparently, she remembered two names in this context – Alanis Morrisette and a “movie star”!! And when asked how that related to the question, she replied she had read in one of the “gossip” magazines that Alanis once dated a guy called “some” Armstrong (in her exact words), who had won tour de france. And the “movie star” (who was her new boyfriend) was once seen cycling along with him !!


Can’t write anymore. I am devoid of any sort of reaction or ability to write more. I need sleep !!

PS: I tried a little bit to figure out who the “movie star” was, but gave up hope after a couple of tries!!
