Posts about Aisling Bea
Alright, stay with me, here. The other day, I was doing one of my bi-weekly rewatches of Taskmaster (Series 5, this time), and I noticed that a certain contestant was entering a significant amount of tasks with a mug of tea in her hands. Like, frequently.
So, I present to you: the statistics for how many tasks Aisling Bea entered into with a refreshing drink.
Counting the 'blowing up a balloon' and 'spot the differences' task as one, there are 28 pre-recorded tasks throughout the eight episodes of Series 5.
There are a couple of 'edge-cases', however- moments in which I have deemed it impossible to bring in a cup of tea for some reason or another. Included in this is all five tasks on the location shoot - although she did have a coffee for one of them - as well as the 'painting a rainbow' task, as I believe production probably would've taken the tea away if she wanted to enter with it. Finally, I've also excluded the first team task, as Aisling enters the house through the front gate- making it theoretically impossible for her to have brewed tea in the Taskmaster House on that day.
With this in mind, I can reveal that Aisling entered a whopping fourteen of twenty-one 'eligible' tasks, or 66% of all tasks - 2/3rds of every task, Aisling had her trusty mug with her. I've uploaded every instance into a handy imgur album, so you can see for yourselves.
NOTE: Sally Phillips also entered a fair number of tasks with tea, but not nearly as many as Aisling. Just in case anyone brings it up!
This is a follow up to my last post.
