Question The Answer on The Big Breakfast Blaa

Question The Answer

Every day on The Big Breakfast Blaa, Vinny and Aoibhin give you the opportunity to win fabulous prizes by simply trying to read their minds on Question The Answer!

Instead of just simply asking you a question and expecting you to come up with the answer, the breakfast crew turn the concept on its head and GIVE you the ANSWER.

All you need to do is to try and guess the question that they are thinking of.

For example, if the answer is GREEN - could the answer be...


What colour is grass?

What is the national colour of Ireland?

What was the surname of Jennifer Aniston's character in Friends?

You get the idea!


No question can be too obscure or obvious. It just has to be right. So why not listen in each day to The Big Breakfast Blaa with Vinny and Aoibhin at 8:10am to play.
