Robert Teuton was the runner-up of Series 22 back in 1991. He was a sales administrator from Bristol.
He defeated Scrabble master David Webb 64 – 41 in his first appearance, and won a further four games before losing to Jonathan Gresty. Teuton returned for the final rounds as #3 seed, and beat Niall Laverty and Jim Saunders on his way to the final. In the final against Chris Waddington, Teuton was leading by a mere two points going into the conundrum, but Waddington beat him to the buzzer, meaning Teuton had to settle for second place.
Teuton played in Championship of Champions VI, beating Barry Grossman in the first round before losing again to Chris Waddington in the semi-final, on another crucial conundrum solved very close to the end of the time.
Prior to appearing on Countdown, he was also a 5-times undefeated winner of BBC2's Catchword in 1989.
