  1. My family love the concept of The 1% Club but we can’t stand the host. He is constantly yells and is rarely funny. Would be a great family show if it had a better host.

  2. Love the concept of the 1% club but the host doesn’t feel right and the audience interaction is exhausting to to watch. Would love a 30 min version.

  3. Love the concept, I have been a trivia host for many years and love this idea, however that clown at the front of this tv show, is that the best we can do, just a bogon, I could do a better job, let me at it I would love it, he needs more polish, more professional and.more pizzazz

  4. To be honest the best bit for me was Seven News reporting on The Moose in Alaska going into a movie theatre and eating popcorn….they outdid themselves this time with useless information. 👏

  5. Very surprised to see 1% do so well in a tough timeslot. It’s one of Seven’s best new show launches in ages. To build on the poor lead in like that and dominate among younger viewers Seven have been struggling to attract – is quite an accomplishment.

  6. The concept is great. I got to 50% without getting any wrong – then downhill from there. The questions were mind benders, which was fun. But the host, and talking… and talking… and talking…!

  7. I checked out 1% Club this morning having recorded it last night. I deleted the recording once I got to the first commercial break. This show was dreadul from the start, unfunny bogan host, the contestants laughing was awkward and forced, I don’t need to meet the contestants either with filler chat. This would be better as a quick-fire 30 min show at 5pm with a host who has the ability to annunciate.

      1. I too gave it a go, but I found some remarks disparaging and inappropriate. I lasted until the 50% question, thus 5/10 for me. Good on 7 for giving something new a go.

      2. I recorded the 1% and found it much better to watch with the sound off and fast forwarding through most of it. I didn’t get the Birthday clue or missing letter puzzles inside 30s, fortunately they provided ad breaks to work on them. The one I couldn’t solve was the compass directions clue because I was confused by the pictures, guessed it as switch and scissors seemed impossible. The last supposed 1% clue was the easiest of the latter puzzles, they must have wanted a winner for the first show.

    1. Dead right. My eyes and ears couldn’t take anymore after 8pm so switched to Hard Quiz. What a difference. The shouting host and the over-the-top lighting were too much. The ‘laughter’ was obviously fake, but hey that’s Seven.

    2. I enjoyed the questions themselves, there was a good mix of number, words and logic style puzzles. I surprised myself by getting most, if not all of the questions correct. Can’t remember every question but I certainly got the second half all right.

      I was disappointed with the host. I understand the concept of having him fill in the 30 second silence while the contestants work through each question but most of his jokes didn’t really land and sometimes he was just babbling. I was also shocked by the crudeness and language for a 7:30PM time slot. I let my primary school-aged daughter watch the first few questions so I was unimpressed when the host was dropping swear words five minutes into the show. I did like the banter with the contestants though, especially when he would go back to the same ones and build up a rapport across the show.

      1. No judgement but alas it is up to parents to allow children to view or not view M rated material, which the show was classified. So there would be no breach on Seven’s part. Some years ago ACMA allowed M content from 7:30pm so ultimately it is up to the community to tell politicians about public values, and otherwise to monitor classification in the home.
