What On Earth is an occasional round which has only featured as an out-take during the clip shows of series 5 and 6. On both occasions, Dara Ó Briain has joked sarcastically about its obscurity. In this round, the panel are shown a picture linked to a world news event before trying to figure out what on earth was happening.

A similar round, Picture of the Week later appeared in Series 12, Episode 3 and became a staple in all subsequent episodes.
