Only Connect viewers floored by contestant's very rude reaction to question | The Sun

VIEWERS were not happy with one contestant on Only Connect who claimed to be too 'grown up' to know the answer to a question about the Twilight films.

Contestant Kat Brown left viewers stunned at home when she appeared to snub the prospect of knowing a question about the popular film franchise on the notoriously high-brow quiz show.

The comments came as she and her two fellow teammates attempted to sort out words into four categories where there was a connection.

As always, Victoria Coren Mitchell was making sure things ran smoothly on the BBC Two quiz show as the hopefuls attempted to get to the correct answer.

With half of the words correctly sorted and identified, Kat's teammates noticed the surnames Swan and Cullen, the last names of the two lead Twilight characters, Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.

After teammate Sara identified the name Black as related to Taylor Lautner's character Jacob Black, she advocated to make that the team's final answer.

Sara in her moment of realisation said: "Oh Swan, is from the same, they are all specifically from Twilight aren't they?"

Kat shot a harsh comment back as to her as she shook her head and glanced at her from one eye before replying in an unpressed manner: "I couldn't possibly tell you that Sara, I'm grown up."

The comment had fans reeling as they took to Twitter to slam Kat and her comments.

One remarked: "Mmmm bit snobby from Kat. Twilight too low culture for you??? me and my twilight tattoo are happy with our completed wall & connections."

Another fumed:"Did slightly enjoy a team losing 3 points because the captain was too dismissive of Twilight aka the greatest work of literature of the 21st century."

A third added: "I wouldn't possibly know about that" re: Twilight is possibly my favourite moment on #OnlyConnect this series."

As a fourth penned that he 'laughed out loud' at Kat and Sara's awkward conversation.

Sara pushed to select the Twilight characters as the answers but continued to face further resistance from Kat who swiped that they did not have enough to go on despite Sara being sure.

Eventually the team were successful and managed to get the correct connections.

Responding to the incident online, Kat show down accusations that she was being 'snobby' and insisted she was making a joke.
