Taskmaster Disqualifications

Sometimes a contestant fails so spectacularly that they don't even score a single point. Here are some of the most inglorious and iconic disqualifications in the history of Taskmaster.

In this Broadcast Award-winning, BAFTA and Emmy Award-nominated entertainment show, Taskmaster tyrant Greg Davies (Man Down, Cuckoo), with the help of his loyal assistant Alex Horne (The Horne Section and the show’s creator), sets out to test the wiles, wit and wisdom of five hyper-competitive comedians.
Comedians that have risked life, limb, and dignity in the hope of making the Taskmaster proud so far include: Frank Skinner (The Frank Skinner Show), Mel Giedroyc (The Great British Bake Off), Romesh Ranganathan (Asian Provocateur), Hugh Dennis (Outnumbered), Sally Phillips (Bridget Jones’ Diary), Rose Matafeo (Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2018), and Russell Howard (The Russell Howard Hour). Unaware of what awaits them in each wax-sealed envelope, only one competitor can become the victorious owner of His Royal Task-ness’ golden head and be crowned the next Taskmaster Champion.

    The strange situation of a feminist putting the latin phrase "Semper Feminata" on her chest only for her to tell you to look at her face.

    It's hilarious to me that Mel Giedroyc's first thought, before baking flour, was "mountain of cocaine."

    NLcameras are you serious? 8 ads on this one 16 minute clip alone, the first three ads within the first two minutes of the video. I don't like that. It's way too much advertising. How to ruin good content :(

    My favourite DQ, other than potato-throw was the task when Aisling forgot to shake Alex's hand before spending ages stacking the cans and naming countries. I wish they'd shown a sped-up version of her doing the task before revealing she'd been DQ though.

    The discussion of the other contestants were cut out for Joe's potato task. Doc Brown and Jon Richardson's argument for why Joe shouldn't get the point is a realistic example of how nobody else will help you become successful. Jessica Knappett actually lost the series because of this disqualification. She needed only 1 more point for a tie with Kerry Godliman.

    What this compilation doesn't show is that Joe leaves the studio while the other contestants vote on whether or not to allow his attempt at throwing the potato into the hole to stand after accidentally standing on the red green. Richard and Katherine vote to let the result stand, but Jon and Doc don't. Doc: I think, if you _really_ analyse the slow-mo... those couple of centimetres that he gains over the red, were you to take them away and it be a clean shot, that potato would have been all rim and bounced out. Greg: Even _that_ was lyrical, wasn't it? "That potato would have been all rim and bounced out." Doc: I'm telling you, those centimetres were a crucial advantage. Alex: Do you want to bring [Joe] back in and deliver your verdict? Greg: Yeah, yeah. Jon: He can come back in but he can't step on the red. _[points to the carpet]_

    Potato-Gate remains one of the best pieces of TV I've seen in years. It's the perfect set-up, how Greg and Alex let him bask in his moment of glory is painful. And my favourite bit is that there is definitely a part when they both look at each other with an expression that said "Shit, I think we might have taken this too far". Gold.
