Beauty, brains and the buzzer
THERE ARE moments when even suave and confident quiz masters meet their match.
As at the Museum Theatre when a glamorous young participant did things her own
way. 'What a stunner', you thought as the maroon silk saree clad woman walked to
the participant's chair. The beauty with brains was a shade too preoccupied with her
looks however. Tossing her lovely mane from time to time, flashing a cheerful smile at
the audience, basking in the attention, she was definitely different from the usual
__(X)__ in-the-making.
When she dashed off to the steps at the side to the make-up man, the illusion of being
at a feature film shoot began to envelop the viewer. After the powder compact and
lipstick routine, she picked up a bottle of lip salve. A quick application but it was not
quick enough. The bell rang and the actress looked around hurriedly for a suitable
spot to place the bottle. After a minute or two, she got up and placed it triumphantly
on the corner of the quiz master's polished, antique table.
__(Y)__ could do little but stare at it, disapproval cloaked by a half-smile. The smile
came to his aid once more when after the first event and before the retake, she
turned to him anxiously and asked "Does my hair look okay?". His presence of mind
enabled him to give a suitable light-hearted retort.
Quiz masters sure need to have their wits about them whether confronted with the
brainy or the beauty with brains like ___(Z)___.
