    Congrats to Jon on the lone solve, I.think the others made a wise bet not to lose it all in this match. Also Switzerland was not a bad guess it should have been accepted. And also what is the English translation of edelweiss, VJ?

    • VJ says:

      @Lou, they couldn’t accept Swizterland because it’s not a Swiss coin. According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, edelweiss means noble and white: edel=noble and weiss=white.

      @Rhys, on my recording, the closed caption shows Allan saying “who’s Coco Chanel”

    During the clue about Coco Chanel, I didn’t hear Allan put his answer in the form of a question.

    Where are them 8 hints??

    Alex Trebek wore a fancy dress today!

    • VJ says:

      @Dalton, don’t you listen to the beginning of the program? Alex said he was wearing the (I assume, official) Canada 150 jersey as an indication that he had been selected as one of the ambassadors to help celebrate Canada’s Sesquicentennial on July 1st. Then he suggested that because Americans are celebrating our Independence Day on July 4th, we should all celebrate together and have a 4-day party.

      I wanted to mention it in the recap but couldn’t, partly because of the FJ image taking up the space where I would normally put interesting things Alex says in the intro, and partly because I was just slower than molasses today from lack of sleep. So let me make up for that here by wishing all Canadians a Happy Sesquicentennial weekend.

      By the way, 4 of my great-grandparents were born in the Province of Quebec.

    Switzerland? It does not use the Euro currency nor is it a member of the EU. It uses the Swiss Franc currency. Oh well. :-[

    We should have three correct answers.

    I was glad the CotD was not the final because when I saw it early this morning, the first thing that popped in my head was that old commercial jingle: N-E-S-T-L-E-S Nestle’s makes the very best– Chocolate.

    I imagined I would have added the S because of that if I had to answer it, but that obviously wasn’t a problem for Jon :)
