    Oh by the way VJ, do you remember that tongue twister she sells seashells by the seashore? I think instead of seashells they used Seychelles as part of the tongue twister. Pretty funny I tell you. That first round was very tough for the contestants especially when Jon was in the red for a little bit. But he made a comeback in the second round. good for him, I hope he wins again tomorrow, fingers crossed.

      Yeah, I put it in the recap the way my mom used to say it “down by the seashore.”

      I really didn’t think tongue twisters were fun when I was a kid. I mean, my parents obviously knew we couldn’t say the seashells one or “toy boat” or “rubber baby buggy bumpers” 5x fast so I didn’t see what the point of it all was. heh heh heh

    Congrats to Jon on winning his fourth game. His total is similar to Todd Giese’s four game win, but did Todd win a little bit more or less than Jon did, VJ?

    So far here are the stats:
    May 2015: Alex Jacob 6x winner (Total for his six game win, VJ?)
    June 2015, Dan Feitel and Brennan Bushee 5x winners of 100000 dollars
    July 2015: Scott Lord 5x winner 100000

    April 2016: Andrew Pau 6x winner 170000 dollars

    May 2016 Buzzy Cohen 9x winner, 180000
    June 2016 Hunter Appler: 6x winner 145000
    July 2016 Pranjal Vachaspati: 6x winner: 130000

    April 2017 Alan Lin: 6x winner 123000
    May 2017 Dave Clemmons: 100000
    July 2017: Jon Eisenman 4x winner 82000

    June 2017 was a tough month for anyone to win more than 3 games because after Rob Ligouri won in March we waited six weeks and from mid May to early July, it was six weeks

      @Lou, everyone from 2015 has already been in a tournament so I’m not seeing any reason to compare their winnings to this season?

      LINK: 10 more clues from this match. I think Popeye’s baby was the most surprising to me out of that, King of the Road (a close second) and the Natalie Wood/Beatty film.

      • Lou says:

        Yeah that one surprised me as well I am a huge fan of Popeye but I can’t believe the contestant mistook it for peewee herman. I’m betting none of them watched Popeye as a little kid though. Do u have anyone that is a fan of Popeye in your family, VJ??

        • Dalton Higbee says:

          Alex Jacob competed in April 2015, his winnings were $149,802.

        • VJ says:

          Yeah, me. I love the old Popeye cartoons. My grandkids mainly like the musical ones, like Barnacle Bill, Sinbad the Sailor and the Abu Hassan one. .

          I don’t think Sebastian mixed up Swee’Pea with Pee Wee Herman though. Probably just took a shot with a name where both syllables rhymed with free.

          Not only didn’t they see the cartoons, they didn’t see the Robin Williams movie either. I loved Shelley Duvall as Olive Oyl in that, singing that song “He’s Large” about Bluto. :D

    Never heard of Seychelles.
