We started and now it's time to finish! It's finals week on Mastermind.
15 Feb 2021 - 12:18 PM  UPDATED 15 Feb 2021 - 3:44 PM

It's all been leading to this – the finals of Mastermind. After a season of speciality subjects such as Lady Gaga, the Nimitz UFO Sighting, Sydney architecture, the Stolen Generation, Donald Glover, Aussie slang, the history of European beers, the comedies of Shakespeare, and nuts (just to name a few), it was down to the final contestants competing to be crowned the winner of Mastermind Australia 2020.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the filming of the finals was stalled in 2020, but now that it is safe to return*, Mastermind is BACK.

This week we welcome our 16 patient, anxious and very excited semi-finalists to compete for their spot in our Grand final…

 

From Monday 15 February, four weekly finalists will return each night, to try and secure their spot in Friday's Grand Final. They are:
