Is $-3,600 a new "in the hole" record for a returning champion? Just curious.

I thought Mexico + butterflies was something almost every trivia buff knew. I guess not.

I disliked Thursday's FJ! clue (said bipolar), and know absolutely nothing about ballet aside from The Nutcracker.

I just saw Mexico + insect and locked in on Monarch Butterfly.
Lucky for you then, considering there's this rather well-known Mexican folk song called "La Cucaracha" (whose title translates to "The Cockroach")...
my lack of knowledge of that helped me here

Very strong negbait for cockroach, for one. Unless you happen to know that Michoacan is the real TOM, and the monarch reserve is there, not sure how you tease it out.

It was not until going to the contestant responses and then reading the predictions at Fikkle that I began to realize that the clue was not as easy as I first thought. Perhaps there is an advantage for native Californians on it?
This is one of those finals where you either know it or you don't.

Maybe they overthought it?

Kevin seems really good, though. Three for three on locking it up before final.

Re: FJs for the 9/28/20 week

What's the record lowest any question has ever polled? 4% would be pretty tough to beat...

Daily Doubles Phillip: 17200+1000 Christ, this Unfortunately, he got FJ right so his bad wager wasn’t punished. Russian opera certainly isn’t my wheelhouse but with no real downside in risking another $601, why not? With a bet under $1,100, Phillip keeps Thembi out of contention if he misses.
