Weird BMS, but it makes me wonder if the writers' research didn't uncover some instance(s) of the castes not being totally mutually exclusive.

Who thinks that the King James Bible was written by LeBron James? :lol:

Zeke got insanely lucky in the penultimate round when Seth decided to vote for Marissa allowing a three way tie and Marissa switching her vote to Seth. Zeke ended up winning the episode.

My Performance: The rapper married to Kylie Jenner was actually my only miss. Managed to get through a bunch of Pop Culture hurdles including Billy Porter who I actually remember watching winning the Emmy for Pose, and Lilies of the Field because of Sidney Poitier's passing a few months ago.

Eric didn't miss a single question in the episode until he was voted off in the final round. Or did he?

Independence Hall or The Capitol, which of these is depicted on the back of the $100 bill?

Eric: The Capitol.
Jane: CORRECT!!!

There is going to be some backlash about this on social media or even in the news as Independence Hall is the correct answer.

My Performance: Cuchi Cuchi actress not gonna happen. That is the only question I recall missing. Finally got Laverne Cox correct.

Bad Misses From Contestants: Lima Bean, Ampersand, Boxing, Straight, 36 Inches, Dow Jones

Unsurprising Misses From Contestants: London, Argyle, Morrison, Alfred Nobel, American Samoa, Southern Cross, George C. Scott, Hawaii

There is no excuse for something like that to happen as it's so easy to check and catch.

What’s the name of this poker hand (A-2-3-4-5)?
Briana: Royal flush

Who later wins the $95,000? See above. America, what a country.

Eric was a dead man walking as Kari had it out for him early. Even if Eric had eliminated Briana at the tie vote point he still would have been bounced before the final with Kari and Mikayla looking for a women's final.

Kari not winning was the best part of the episode other than the title, "Who is the Jan of this Brady Bunch"? :lol:

Thank you, I thought I was going crazy. I didn't bother to check since I took it at face value that I was wrong and they did the bare minimum of fact checking. :roll:

Perhaps the $100 bill error forced them to go to hiatus. ;)

Would not be surprised if one of these days, Jane makes the remark, "Who thinks Juliette Binoche is the name of a dessert?"

Clue Crew alum Kelly was on the show; she was consistently the strongest link but was voted off just before the final showdown.

KELLY FROM THE CLUE CREW!!! :o

"Juneteenth was dedicated a federal holiday in June 2021, after the taping of this episode" read the side note in the Memorial Day question. So this was taped over a year ago.

Ricola man yodeling "I LOVE MY WIFE".

Los del Rio doing "The Floss".

A perfect game for me tonight. Not at all pop culture heavy.

Bad Misses From Contestants: Mario Lopez, Weird Al Yankovic, Peanut Butter, Times Square, Ricola, Mahjong, Rose Bowl, Japan, Porcupine, Britney Spears, Macarena, Portland Trail Blazers, Lamb, Tina Turner, Kentucky, Memorial Day, Baseball

Unsurprising Misses From Contestants: Please, Mu, Dreamgirls, Zest, Ian Fleming
