University Challenge fans 'switch off and give up' – raging 'awful' host Amol Rajan has 'ruined' show' | The Sun

UNIVERSITY Challenge viewers ripped into the show and the host Amol Rajan who they said "ruined" the show and it made them want to "switch off and give up" .

The popular quiz show has returned with a brand new presenter, but it seems fans are not happy.

Amol Rajan replaced Jeremy Paxman after he spent 29 years at the helm of University Challenge.

After watching the latest episode, BBC viewers took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to complain about the new revived series.

One fan wrote: "I am so disappointed that after years of enjoying #universitychallenge I am giving it up.

"Amol Rajan is awful. He speaks way too fast and mumbles way too much. So sad he's ruined a previously great show."

Another added: "Try and live with the inevitability that he is different to Paxman and remember UC is about the brilliant students and not the presenters."

A third penned: "Couldn’t agree more. I gave up watching weeks ago. He’s awful."

A fourth wrote: "I've been watching it on mute and with subtitles. Makes him much easier to manage."

A fifth added: "Totally agree with you. Cannot understand a word he says. He is not my starter for Ten."
