    Just out of curiosity - - I know the looser goes home with a dictionary and a countdown mug - - but what does the winner even get? I have know clue? Do they keep goin until they loose? So only the looser really gets the prize if you think about it? Or is it one of those "staying on the show is the prize of winning" ??

    It's Now Explained in the Summary:
    "The show works on a winner-stays-on basis, with contestants retiring after eight wins. The top eight players return at the end of the series to compete in a knockout phase with the top prize being the complete (20 volume) Oxford English Dictionary, worth around 6000 UKP"
