Your Face Or Mine
6:00pm - 6:30pm
Which is the bigger fist-magnet -- Your Face Or Mine? Jimmy Carr and June Sarpong host a game
show that challenges contestants to guess how gorgeous or gruesome people really think they are.
The contestants are a couple, and the game consists of deciding which of two people are the more
attractive. The live studio audience have already voted before the show begins, and if the contestants
agree, they win money.
It starts off innocently enough, with pairs of photographs of strangers. But all too soon the contestants
have to rate themselves in this way, and after that, their partner. At this point the presenters introduce
a selection of surprise guests, ranging from the partner's best friends to their own ex-partners.
Finally, they must decide between them which one of them is the better looking, all the while goaded
on by Carr and Sarpong.
The prize money increases in step with the prospect of after-show recriminations. Flattery is futile:
contestants must decide whether leaving with a wad of cash is worth risking going home alone.
This programme was commissioned in 2002 as post-pub entertainment for E4, back when they
thought people would pay good money to watch that channel. They were subsequently screened
(once) on Channel 4.
The couple on this episode are Vikki and Sophie.
My source MPEG file doesn't have it's original time-stamp, and I can't find an episode list online.
The only clue I have to the episode number is my original choice of filename, "Face10.mpg".
Based on this, I have to guess the air-date is:
Series 2, episode 10. Screened Thursday 1st May 2003.
This file was originally recorded with an ancient analogue TV capture card at a resolution of
352x288 pixels (a quarter of standard PAL). It was essentially in VCD format, although with
a higher MPEG-1 CBR video bit rate. A VHS-rip would be of superior quality, and I have no
objections to a VHS-rip of this episode superseding this torrent, if one is ever found.
