Nice theme! Thanks for hosting

The bonus was a nightmare but somehow I avoided last place.

Mata Hari was an epic bad guess. But at least the letters of her name are contained within Amelia Earhart

Yay! I won another match game!

I’m most amazed that I apparently correctly WAG’d eight of the pictures and yet one of my two misses was my actual answer.
