Too bad it was a no-Ken day as I would have loved to have seen him when the cloche question came up.
He's never played with anyone other than Muffy and Jonathan, has he?

For Morgan, any word with the prefix meli- has to do with honey. For example, the scientific name for the honey badger is Mellivoria Capensis.

Also, not mentioned on the show, four under par is a Condor.

Jekyll & Hyde was on today or go Longfellow if you want to rework, "There was a Little Girl".

What happened:
Spoiler
John Beck played and got bounced after round two, finishing with a negative score. On J! he won 5, did not make it out of the QF round in the ToC, won a UToc match, ran into Brad in the next round, and missed at $7K to leave with $5K on Millionaire.

He's like a box of chocolates on game shows.

S32 player Ted Johnson was on today's show, coming in 2nd place.
Happened upon a clip of the game I linked in the quote and I believe I mistakenly ID'd the wrong Ted from that day's show. Here is the correct guy. My apologies for that! :oops:

Not to get all Lucario but how does jennings think Cedar Point is in Dayton? And in the question about Athens the challenger gave a Roman name.

Since Ken is a multi-millionaire I guess coins are below his dignity? 16 cents for adding up the two lowest coins without ridges? That was almost as bad as Ken missing Rigoletto yesterday.

threearuda - stuff happens, no big deal, correcting archive things is fairly simple although I'll wait a bit just in case another opinion comes in

Is he being ironic, jokingly deflecting blame, or is he being honest? I just watched an episode of this show for the first time, and it's close to impossible to believe those comments are spontaneous. (For one thing, I never noticed any hesitation/competition about whose turn it was to speak.) Whether they are or not, somebody should factcheck before they go out on the air.

Some of the more recent ones seem a bit more spontaneous, but the earlier ones seemed scripted.

Lisa is from my hometown. I was very excited to see her win today.

Also, Jill looked quite familiar.

I was certainly impressed that she was able to take down Dan. But not Ryan. She really should have known Lindsey Vonn, though. That was n her.

Yes, fun to see a
Spoiler
boardie battle to close the show. I'd love to know how many Dan knew. My instinct says all five. Nice work by Megan on the buzzer in round 3. I wonder if Davee knew about Megan's J! pedigree in addition to how strong Dan's resume is from the show? Pretty good episode with 5/6 competitors being J! alums.
Finally remembering to respond to econgator's past query: Yes, Ken has only played with the Muffy/Jonathan combo.
