Seriously, Twitter was delighted.
University Challenge contestants are undoubtedly amongst the smartest students around, yes, but they’ve also become renowned for their quirky sense of style.
A particular shoutout needs to go to Eric Monkman and his never-changing blue jumper.
However, the latest contestant to become an internet phenomenon is that of Adam Lowery after he opted for a bow tie for his big moment.
Eagle-eyed fans couldn’t help noticing his resemblance to a certain JK Rowling created character - Newt Scamander from Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them.
Naturally, Twitter quickly became its sometimes humorous self and left us in hysterics:
