Netflix is known for almost never releasing its viewership numbers so it is a fun surprise that they are giving us solid numbers for the choose your own adventure ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch‘ movie. Specifically, they are letting us know what some of the most and least popular decisions viewers have made so far! With how many endings the film has it is interesting to see that some choices get picked quite often while some are rarely used.
The first choice of the story may or may not have had any real impact but it does seem to show that a majority of viewers aren’t a fan of the Sugar Puffs.
On the biggest day of Stefan’s life, over 60% of his friends from the future fed him Frosties.

As to having a more stable job or not, it seems that the vast majority felt that the main character should be working in software!
We just wanted Stefan to live his best life!!!
That’s why 73% chose to ACCEPT the job at Tuckersoft.
HOW WERE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW ?!?! 😭https://t.co/K0LUHPFn3K

Another fun one is how British and those from around the world feel about the importance of tea as:
Here with your very British update. Compared to the rest of the world, Brits were *less* likely to waste a good cup of tea (obviously).
Bandersnatchers in Britain chose “throw tea” only 52.9% of the time. The rest of the world do so 55.9% of the time https://t.co/uPIY1gBMl2

Fans might get sentimental over the least used ending as it was moving but not many ended up being able to see it:
Relax. It’s hard to predict the future!
And it’s even more difficult to change the past.
Out of the 5 main endings, the one where Stefan goes on the train with his mum *fights tears* was the path least traveled.https://t.co/NhxbbmSzZj

There are still a ton of choices that viewers would likely want to see stats on. A specific scene about Stefan’s father or what to do with a dead body come to mind.
