Taskmaster: Champion of Champions
March 26, 2021 3:06 PM - Season 5 (Specials) - Subscribe

The Champions! THE CHAAAAMPIOOONS!! The champions of series 1 to 5 compete in a 2-episode special to crown the Champion of Champions. (Note: post and links contains list of previous-season champions.) Episodes are available on the Taskmaster YouTube channel in the USA, and on Channel 4's website in the UK.

Bob Mortimer, Josh Widdicombe, Katherine Ryan, Noel Fielding and Rob Beckett return to compete for a trophy of the rest of Greg Davies's body.
Episode 1: Wiley Giraffe Blower
Episode 2: I've Sinned Again

I'm a sinner! I've sinned!

They are apparently going to do a second Champion of Champions, or maybe they already have, but this is the first one.

I didn't even know about this until someone mentioned it in the Series 5 thread. I was able to watch episode 1 this morning and it was quite funny. Josh's most embarrassing item was legit embarrassing but why is he being invited onto a politics show to begin with? Also, it's still jarring to hear Katherine's Canadian accent on a British show.

Episode 2 has the edible face masks and “biggest mess” challenges back-to-back, and just... there’s a reason Bob and Katherine are champions.

I love that they get through the edible masks challenge without ever saying “masktaster”.

I love how hard Katherine Ryan leans into phone solutions. I guess it would be boring if everyone did it, but she's always so funny that it works for me 100%.

I've never seen any of Josh's comedy but it seems that being completely embarrassed at or overwhelmed by most of these tasks is kind of his thing. At first I felt genuinely uncomfortable for the guy but then I realized it's probably just his schtick.
