I don't think so. Besides, he answers way more questions right than his competitors. If you make the questions harder, you just make it less likely that his competitors can get any points at all. If you want to get him off the show, you make the questions first-grade easy, Make it a contest to determine who can ring in first. Then change the timing of the lights that allow people to buzz in and put him up against champion race car drivers and fencers.
