Tipping Point were left stunned after a contestant was given the “worst prize ever,” a £50 snow cone and ice crusher machine.
The dud prize was revealed after contestant Trevor successfully crossed the finish line with a mystery counter, leaving viewers unimpressed with the offering.
Host Ben Shepard revealed to Trevor that he had recently acquired “a snow cone ice crusher courtesy of Prezzy Box,” which costs just £50.
On social media, fans of the popular ITV quiz show slammed the disappointing prize, with one telling the winning contestant to sell it on eBay.
