I'm right with you, man. I was pretty sure M. Butterfly was Japanese, not Chinese, but had nothing else. Even though opera is not the dismal category for me that it is for many, I didn't know enough about Turandot to come up with it. When AT mentioned Puccini I was sure I had stumbled onto a right answer, but not to be.
Truly, what was Susan thinking? Tied going into FJ??? Pretty much have to bet it all, don't you? I mean, how would she have felt if she had answered correctly, then lost by six grand because the champ bet correctly and she didn't?
Or, if it was a truly horrid category, perhaps a $0 bet would serve her better. But that in-between, doesn't-accomplish-a-thing bet was the pits.
Great get for Stephanie, along with the correct wager, and she ends up with a very fine second win. Nicely done, champ!
