    VJ who is the last person currently on the TOC list and when do you predict that will air?

    • VJ says:

      @Alex, it will be Rob when I update it later. I have no idea when the ToC will be shown. I would like it to be shown on the last 2 weeks of this season, but that’s a wish and not a prediction. :)

      @Jacob, you’re welcome. Glad you liked it. I love those Sporcle geography quizzes.

    @vj, thanks for the Quiz.

    I loved Ernie’s higlet answer :D

    Alison didn’t find the clue difficult. Did a fantastic job of coming back from negative territory at end of Round 1 to win the match. Congrats Alison.

    With Melania Trump originating from Slovenia and Slovenia defeating Slovakia in hockey in the Winter Olympics plus both countries belonging to the 28 member countries of the European Union this should have been a slam dunk imo.

  5. Alfred Robert Hogan, M.A. says:

    The new First Lady hails from Slovenia so that should have helped. Donald J. Trump’s third wife is the first foreign-born First Lady since JQA’ s London-born wife in 1825-1829.

    I found the wording of this clue confusing as well, but still Allison. Too bad that Kristin Cutts is out of the tournament of champions list and now Rob is in there. I was thinking of Iraq and Iran as well, would you have guessed that as well, VJ?

    • Alfred Robert Hogan, M.A. says:

      Iran and Iraq are in Asia not Europe.

    • VJ says:

      @Lou, I think Rob really needed to win this one. With the Teachers Tournament coming up, he’ll be knocked off the list anyway.

      I knew the answer just from starts with the same 4 letters. Besides Iraq and Iran being in Asia, as Alfred said, only the first 3 letters are the same. I think Turkey and Turkmenistan are the only 2 Asian countries that fit that 4-letter bill.

      If they went to Africa, it would be more of a challenge

  7. CWC says:

    The first-four letters thing put me in mind of Slovenia and Slovakia right away, but did anyone else think that the wording of this FJ clue was confusing?

  8. VJ says:

    Boy, was I surprised at this result when the clue said the first 4 letters are the same. Looked like Alison was the only one who checked out an alphabetical list of countries in her preparation.
