Sorry, I deleted mine already.

Bonus round comments for the 2/22/21 show:
Spoiler

Beating Ken was there for the taking as he only got 2 right. It was an ego boost for me to get three (quorum number, Spanish speaking country, Russian) and not need the tiebreaker when my mental coin went Indonesia over Armand's guess. The correct response for the tiebreaker? The $10,000 was safe.

I matched your guess. According to Wiki, it has 17,504.

I don’t think the right answer would have been in my top five guesses, but looking at Google Earth, it sure has a lot of very small islands.

Too bad for Armand on such a tough tiebreaker. I thought it was Indonesia. I’m going to Sweden later this year or maybe next if the pandemic ever ends.

I am Armand. :D

Thought processes:

Q5: I knew Yeltsin. I knew that if I got one more right I would win. I panicked and ignored the little voice in my head.

BONUS: I saw geography, my worst subject, and instead of reasoning out the answer (which I actually knew) I just gave up and threw out a random guess.

It was an enjoyable experience, but being on a game show is much more stressful than anyone can imagine. I was completely spent.

Aw, man, you could have given us a head's up! I was rooting for you as it happened. Don't beat yourself up; you took Ken to the mat, and not many people can say that. And that was one tough question. No way I was getting anywhere near there. I was pretty sure of myself with Indonesia, but I was surprised that was down around 5th. Hopefully you enjoyed yourself and had a safe trip. Congrats!

I considered Indonesia but figured it was probably going to be in the Arctic, either Canada, Russia, or something Scandinavian. Unfortunately because of fjords I guessed Norway over Sweden.

Line added on his J! page. Thanks for the link as I could picture his J! photo while not recalling his last name.

Tense final round.

Dang, Jonathan is 3/3 getting bounced this week plus a fourth when including Friday the 19th.

Ken: There is no woman named Ann Taylor.

HowManyOfMe has something to say about that.

A few seconds. I've been going on HowManyOfMe for about 7 years now.

I went to high school with an Ann Taylor, so I didn't have to do any research! (Disclaimer: I didn't actually go to high school with an Ann Taylor...;))
