Planning to start the reveal in the afternoon, but after the last few days around here I am making no promises.

Wow. The two Congos has one response between them. And I thought Eswatini would be an answer people would flock towards. Unused.

Regarding 6 and 6a: I did not want to risk losing points guessing on an initial, but I'm pretty sure I took a swing on the bonus question and got it right. I realize the bonus question was pinned to the letter one guessed, but I was hoping for a little leeway...

Ethan!

Instead of thinking about the winners in order season by season I told myself to look for a winner after Season 10 when fewer people watched while avoiding current winners. E is for Earl seemed good enough.

I kept thinking and wondered about high-scoring Scrabble winners. Switching to Vecepia was tempting though being S4 I thought someone would recall her. When I got to J and realized how many had that letter I got off that path to stick with my first guy.

I forgot all about Ethan and never would have gone with E if I had thought about him.

The last part of my consideration was if I liked the winner and thought that person deserved the win. B M and N were definitely out.

Did the reverse psychology on Q6: Everyone will remember Richard Hatch (if only for his tax issues), but no one will want to put him down, so I'll go with him instead of dropping Q6.

And surely everyone will put down Conga for Q7, so I'll drop that one. Oh well, so close, yet so far...

I only remembered Ethan's name because of his later appearance on The Amazing Race.

Funny... I basically did just the opposite. Dropped Q6 cuz I don't know or care who won any season or episode on Survivor. I voted that abomination off my TV during the first advertisement I saw for it. Didn't even wait til the commercial was over before I voted.

Only Estefan song I knew was Conga. Singleton.

Go figure...

Singleton on question 11. Neat!

I knew 4 artists in group 1 and none in group 2. Seeing the correct answers, a few of them are, "oh, yeah," but I never would've come up with them.
