"ALEX HORNE, MY SON. THE MOONS OF SATURN HAVE ALIGNED, AND THE PROPHECIES FORETELL THAT ON THE 27TH ROTATION OF JUPITER'S MOONS THE DESTRUCTION OF HULKAMANIA WILL FINALLY COME TO PASS. YOUR TIME START

I honestly think Mike's prize task reveal is a top five moment of the whole thing. What an absolute icon.

I'm finding it hard to remember a contestant that has entertained me more during a series than Mike Wozniak.

I only know who one of those people are, but some of my favorite cast members lately have all be people who I never heard of before the show so I'm looking forward to it.

Alan Davies is a comedian, best known now as the panellist from QI, as well as the star of the Sherlock-like crime series Jonathan Creek

Guz Khan has his own Sitcom, Man Like Mobeen, which is incredible. It goes to some hard places for a sitcom, it's really enjoyable.

Victoria Coren Mitchell is a television personality probably best known for being the host of the incredibly difficult quiz show only connect. She is razor sharp, and has won over two million quid on the professional poker circuit.

The other two I'm less familiar with

This may paint me in a poor light but I had absolutely no idea who Mike Wozniak was until this series. I've since began watching Man Down from the start, I'd been told to watch it for years but it's been one of those on my Netflix list I never got round to.

He has a really new podcast with two other comedians called Three Bean Salad, which is probably one of the funniest things i've ever listened to. i really recommend it.

Desiree is an American stand-up that's been in the UK for a few years, and I have seen her on Frankie Boyle's roundtable programmes. 

Morgana is someone that I only recognise as the eccentric neighbour in Bob Mortimer and Vic Reeves' sitcom 'House of Fools' from quite a few years ago.

Mike Wozniak is... a human being of no possible comparison. This has been a really good series, from Mike's utter madness to Charlotte's infectious sweetness, it covered everything.

Season 12 looks interesting too, Morgana is fairly crazy from what I remember, and I've always found VCM hilarious. I was always sort-of hoping they might have her and David Mitchell in the same series, but I'm glad she's on it.

More women than men for the first time as well, in fact the same amount of female contestants in this series as there were in the first 3 combined.

I was equal parts delighted, gobsmacked and horrified how he did that to his lovely middle management hair.

Ed Gambles season had three women, but yeah it's a rarity.

That was such a satisfying season. Lots of great tasks, not a single dud contestant, and Mike By God Wozniak.

REALLY looking forward to 12 too, based on the three people I know alone.

Has New Zealand season 2 started, and if so how many episodes have aired? I want to watch it in one go (well, ten successive dinner-times).

It has. 4 episodes out, I believe. It has been really great. It's a wonderful cast.

I would love to see future seasons mix up former cast members into new combinations.  Though, most of that is because I have no idea who else could be on it, and kind of contradicted that a lot of my favorite contestants lately have all been people who I had never heard of before the show.

I think the New Years Special (along with contestants like Richard Osman and Mel Giedroyc) was proof that the format doesn't need people defined as comedians to be on a full series to make it successful and entertaining. With that in mind, I don't think they could ever run out of potential contestants.

I agree completely it doesn't necessarily need comedians but Mel Giedroyc Is/was a comedian.
