Yes, we had the possibility of a tie-breaker but I was pretty sure Michelle wasn't going to bet it all.
I would have staked my life that she made the wrong wager.

I went with Cortes.

I hope I'm not the only one who simply couldn't figure out the theme.
You're not (I generally suck at "What do these things have in common" questions. It's not how my mind thinks).

My hearing may be going, but I would swear Johanna left off “ what is” in her answer to the Newton question. I also thought she missed it on her Bell answer, but she might have muttered it under her breath.
It was left off.

Re: TD387 - morbeedo's Revenge - Q6 & Bonus Results

If you’re counting doubles players for the tennis question, should Venus Williams be a correct answer? Man, if I knew you were going with doubles, I would have busted out my guaranteed single of Gator Great Lisa Raymond. She has the career slam in doubles and 3 of the 4 in mixed doubles (and a Bron...

The FJ! clue had Turkey while I went French for a Hammer special of Cerasus reminds me in its look & sound of cerise. I translated that into English and was done.
That's what I did, too. Had about the same level of confidence in it.

In the contestant chats, Steve mentioned that he found an error in Ken Jennings's book Maphead. Well I have just noticed an error in Ken's Trivia Almanac. He put down 50 Cent's real name as Curtis JOHNSON instead of Curtis JACKSON. I am probably not the only person who noticed that error. I only ma...

"SOMEONE WITH EXTRA ACREAGE BETWEEN EYEBROWS & HAIRLINE MAY BE PUNNINGLY CALLED THIS". I forgot the category was BY THE NUMBERS so I guessed "highbrow". Yeah, what was the correct response to that one? Didn't sound like something I was familiar with. "Five-head" (as opposed to forehead) Ok, thanks....

Started with Austria, but didn't like the Peace Palace part there. The Netherlands fit that part, so I just assumed that it was right and I just wasn't sure where the camp was.

Keely Smith/Louis Prima seems like a very obscure pairing unless you're over 70 years old. Curious if anyone here got this right.
Can't say I've heard of either of these people.

I pre-called the reversal for Annual Rate of Return, but TPTB were generous giving Revenue IMHO - that isn't a thing anyone would call ARR. I must've sped through the reversal, but did they actually credit him with a correct response or just not penalize him for coming in after what should have bee...

They rarely if ever play the Falco version that has that verse in it, which is sad.
