    I realize that Melissa couldn’t have taken the lead with the third DD, but she should have at least aimed for half of Choyon’s lead. It didn’t matter in the end, but that is simply not the point.

      I’m further baffled by the wagering in FJ, but that one I’ll strike up to irrelevant.

    Not that it mattered anymore, but NOT getting Gallipoli? One of the most infamous battles in WWI,the british general,Hamilton , was replaced because of his incompetence. The Australians have a song about that battle:”And the band played Waltzing Matilda….” At least Melissa was in the right area.
    Congratulations to Choyon for his second win and to jacob for his correct prediction.

      Not that it would have helped Melissa but, coincidentally, they had this question on 500 Questions last night:

      A national holiday in both Australia and New Zealand, Anzac Day, commemorates what World War I battle in Turkey.

      The contestant ran out of time after giving these answers: The Battle of the Dardanelles, the Bosphorus, Instanbul and one other I didn’t catch

        I was hoping FJ would have something to do with The 7 Dwarfs — just for you, VJ. :)

      • doris s says:

        The Dardanelles should have been accepted,
        the battle was/is sometimes referred to as that, but the “official” name is “The Gallipoli Campaign ” I guess the soldiers called it something else, certainly not “campaign”…

      • Cece says:

        Yes, and I got G N’ R! :)

        BTW, I loved the “Pantsless Pooh Bear” article — funny!

    Congrats, Jacob – only one got it, but not the one I thought!

      Thanks vj. Enjoy watching Choyon play. His enthusiasm and knowledge are fun to watch. The last two clues in the Anagrams category were killers for a 30-second solve. No wonder none of the contestants rang in.
