Re: Tuesday, June 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

But I did find it interesting that Emma chose to stick with a single category for her first 5 picks, running a category from the bottom up to start the J! round. I think that was the first time in a long while we heard applause for running a category. James probably "ran" a few, but never in the tr...

I made this exact same mistake, same reasoning.

43 out of 50, for real. I thought Tuesday's test (off the video) was harder (37 right).
