It's my fault as last week I added a new stat line about wins from position being 38-10-7 from left to right. Since then the left (where Ken is always) has been bounced early all four shows this week.

Muffy had her Wheaties this week as she is 4-0 against the other Master Minds as well as the winning contestant.

Great week by Muffy to win all five against the other master minds and to defeat the winning contestant each time as well.

Five more games to go this season with more to be taped sometime in the August - November window, virus permitting.

Today's 6/22 ep. was Mensa night. As soon as I heard that my mocking thought was, "Easy night for the Master Minds" as often the mention of that group is the kiss of death on a trivia show.

Comments:
Spoiler
Melis and Rachael did little in Round 3 as the winning score was only 1500. Rachael was lucky it was not WBS$ as J! phrasing got you a dunce hat on that show. I wonder if she's been on J!?

Melis did better than I expected in the last round to get 3/5 right.

The judges sure messed with my head as I matched Ken for the president associated with the deal for WA, OR & ID while Melis got a BMS on her Roosevelt. Until the answer was revealed I was in a WTF mood trying to figure out how TR matched those places becoming states.

Oh, I was right all along. All the BMS accomplished was getting Melis's hopes up for a correct answer when she had no chance either way.

Ken surprised me after he emerged from isolation to wonder if he won the round if that mean he would be president of Mensa. :)

Finally a win for the left spot which had been dry since the 12th.

Page updated, thank you. That's why Rachael looked familiar; she was on Millionaire last year.

Well, I recognized the easy one, but unfortunately beyond that, I failed. But at least I wasn't 0/3.

The $10k drought has finally been broken. :D

Ryan is 4/4 in facing J! Alum in the Final Round and 3/4 in facing fellow BOARDIES.

I can ID Leszak, who was also on History IQ, he won $10,000 and the invitation to return on the next episode. Maybe the last-taped episode of the season could be a repeat of the season finale as Best Ever Trivia Show(not in a rerun, just how the season would end in its current title).
