Jackson has also had a #1 album in four different decades; the latest was Unbreakable (2015). Only she, Bruce Springsteen, and Barbra Streisand have done that.

I’m just specu...

I think Venator also has a singular distinction in the show's history - the only player to win a tournament game and not advance (or in the case of a final, win the event). There was also Andy Richter, who was unable to continue in the Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational due to his participation ...

This is the first time (according to the Archive) that they have asked for "Vanuatu" on the show. That makes it the last widely recognized country in the world to have been a correct response to a clue, though there is one that has never been given by a contestant: Comoros. There was a clue in 1989 ...
