It’s a totally separate country. If you answered Ireland for a question on Northern Ireland, I don’t think you’d be prompted.hbomb1947 wrote: ↑Mon Nov 04, 2019 8:12 pmI don't think Anneke should have been BMS'd for her response of Guyana in the $2,000 "To the Stars" clue asking for a South American territory. French Guiana isn't a more specific version of saying "Guyana"; Guyana is an independent country and I think the response should have been treated as incorrect.

I think it's an unfortunate precedent, and even worse in the TOC where I feel a contestant should know the difference between Guyana and French Guiana (especially spotted "European space agency"). For consistency they would now also have to BMS on Virginia for West Virginia, Samoa for American Samoa, Sudan for South Sudan (which could have come up in today's episode), and Congo for Democratic Republic of the Congo. Like, if they ask what country Kinshasa is the capital of and you answer "Congo," that's just wrong and you shouldn't get what amounts to a mulligan.
