Returning: Celebrity Mastermind

Competing this season on SBS are John Wood, Dilruk, Dicko, Pettifleur, Hans, Shane Gould & more.

Celebrity Mastermind is returning to SBS on Saturday nights from late August.

The 16 celebrities facing the black chair include John Wood, Dilruk Jayasinha, Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson, Ben Lee, Pettifleur Berenger, Hans, Shane Gould, Richard Reid and more.

Speciality topics include Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt, legendary painter Frida Kahlo, the presidency of Donald Trump, the movie Primal Fear, Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Hamlet, iconic 90’s comedy Friends and the history of Australian surfing.

Quizmaster Marc Fennell says: “Look, I’m not gonna lie. There is a perverse joy in watching objectively talented people – ARIA winning musicians, brilliant journalists, and Logie-winning actors – all face the spotlight. The squirming is real. But what’s even more fun is watching them truly embrace their favourite nerdy subjects. I’ve said all along that Mastermind is a celebration of Australia’s nerds. And I love watching some of Australia’s best-known faces revel in that nerdiness”.

Celebrity Mastermind is produced for SBS by BBC Studios.
