My precall on the category title was Benedict Arnold because his name lives on as a synonym for traitor, and I didn't have to change my answer.

I feel like I hear "too many cooks in the kitchen" without the "spoil the broth" part often, so I was expecting them to give back money on that, but oh well.

WLT Captain Cook or Africa at $200?

Nobel category was entirely YEKIOYD. You had to take a total WAG off the sound of the name. Crappy category.

$200 and $800 were my misses in Seasons. Coldest = winter just didn't click.

Phrases was a clusterf**k. So many long phrases that are easy to trip over, such as the too many cooks one.

Chile has famous cities that aren't Santiago?

NHO Federalist Papers that I recall.

No guess on FJ! My mind keeps misplacing Benedict Arnold by nearly two millennia and I can't seem to reverse that.

Too bad Andrew knew it was Cook for New Zealand as I wanted him to complete the set with Auckland after the ladies tried Wellington & Christchurch.

Hammer: If it's not Tasman (which the clue eliminated) then it's Cook. It's really that simple. And if it's an explorer type from New Zealand then it's Sir Edmund (Mt. Everest) Hillary.

We'll give Andrew the benefit of the doubt that he was not thinking "Hap" with his FJ! response of "Arnold." :) Yes, that clue had triple get by the contestants with no guess by Hammer written all over it.

If you give a response and Alex says nothing then wake up fast to try to fix your response as you may have a chance to save yourself. Stephanie added her "Nation" to "Prozac" with no time to spare. There was no saving her Discovery instead of Enterprise though. She cost Andrew $12,000 by not solving the DD with a big Roddenberry TOM.

Of course Alex blames "the British" for burning down the White House. He's technically correct, of course. But to BMS, it was totally the Canadians. 8-)

Exactly. The nature of his name just doesn't seem to remotely fit Revolutionary War to me at all.

Totally.

I briefly considered George III for FJ, but it just doesn't seem like a newspaper would describe him that way. Benedict Arnold seemed to make a lot more sense.

Yeah...didn't like that. The underlying meaning is still the same and technically both still fit despite their targeting.

I'll always remember Benedict Arnold's death as 1801. I had a book of tricky questions back in my early years and it asked, in short Q: Why did Benedict Arnold not get a military burial with honors in 1800? (A: Because he died in 1801, you idiot!)

Benedict Arnold almost tricked the Founding Fathers into signing the Declaration of Surrenderpendence! There're some things from history you just don't forget :lol:.

I'm sure many Americans at the time wanted to bury him in 1800 anyways, the matter of his not being dead yet being a trifling matter.

No, I'll just be here in the corner, keeping TPH company. You see, Benedict Arnold isn't really much of a significant name in my head. He means about as much to me as General Montcalm means to you, you're most likely aware of him if you're trivia savvy, you probably know what he's famous for, but that's it.

For the record, I said John Paul Jones (mixing him up a bit with Lafitte to give him the "notoriety" of a pirate the clue required) and didn't look back.

Perhaps he conflates him with Judas Iscariot (another one of the two or three biggest traitors in history.)

Alexander joins forces with James Madison and John Jay to write a series of essays defending the new United States Constitution, entitled The Federalist Papers. The plan was to write a total of twenty-five essays, the work divided evenly among the three men. In the end, they wrote eighty-five essays, in the span of six months. John Jay got sick after writing five. James Madison wrote twenty-nine. Hamilton wrote the other fifty-one!
