Trivia Edit

  • Saif is the only saboteur in Snake Attack to both fail to sabotage the challenge and get detected.
  • This is the only episode where the team get no correct answers in Feed Me Lies. This is also the only time in Feed Me Lies where Phyllis (the good plant) is fed lies instead of truths.
  • Sophie is the only unfortunate to make the team fail and remain undetected throughout Feed Me Lies, The other saboteurs in Feed Me Lies failed to sabotage the challenge, George from Series 1, Episode 1 (Poplar) was undetected when the team passed but as for Isobel from Series 1, Episode 8 (Manchester) and Emily from Series 1, Episode 11 (Liverpool) they failed to sabotage and were detected.
  • Another batch of unfortunates from Birmingham appear in Series 2, Episode 9 (Birmingham)
  • During Wicked Wardrobes on Floor 3, during the fifth Saboteur Alert, Alice (the saboteur) ran out of time to go back into her wardrobe before Sophie and Jon spotted her. She managed to sabotage the challenge but she was detected. Alice then says it was probably the reason why Sophie and Jon voted for her.
  • When the Voice is telling Sophie how to sabotage the challenge 'Feed Me Lies', the Voice incorrectly calls the bad plant Marge instead of Madge. She makes this same mistake in the Fight for Freedom in Series 1, Episode 8 (Manchester).
  • Lizzie is the only unfortunate trapped in Feed Me Lies who was not the saboteur.
  • Jack is the only unfortunate trapped in Black Widow who did not use the vaccumigator tube closest to the left.
  • Alice almost had a false start in Wicked Wardrobes, you can tell as she was about to turn off a light before the Voice announced to everyone to begin the challenge.
