However, she explained the guessing strategy afterward and Bradley, 62, was thoroughly unimpressed.
Kate’s question was: “What was the birthstone of L. Frank Baum, the creator of the ‘Oz’ books?”
As usual, the contestant was given three choices. The answer was either A: Emerald, B: Garnet or C: Ruby.
Although Emerald may have seemed like the obvious choice based on the Emerald City in The Wizard of Oz, Kate chose C: Ruby.
She explained her choice, saying: “It was between Emerald and Ruby, you’ve got the Emerald City and the Ruby Slippers.
“And I’ve already two ‘A’s, so I went for ‘C’,” she added.
However, Bradley quickly revealed the answer was actually Emerald, which proved Kate’s guessing strategy was way off.
“Please don’t base your answers on ‘I haven’t had A for a while, so I’ve gotta go B’,” Bradley urged.
Kate looked embarrassed about her strategy, but the pair laughed it off.
“It got me through some exams,” she admitted.
Her comment left Bradley in stitches, and soon The Vixen and Kate’s teammates were chucking away, too.
Despite guessing wrong, Kate walked out of the head-to-head with £50,000, which she added to her team’s £10,000.
Unfortunately, they lost to The Vixen in the final chase.
