Monday’s recap will have a slightly different tone.
Mostly because I think the show needs to have a bit more of a diverse writing staff. I’m not sure who was involved with the WHAT WOMEN WANT category or thought it was funny in 2014, but I didn’t find it amusing in the slightest.
As for Final:
Category: Agatha Christie
Clue: In the 400-page book “Agatha Christie A to Z”, entries beginning with this 6-letter word start with page 224 & end on 238.
Alan Lange 10400 – 3000 = 7400 (What is poison?)
Elisa Korb 13200 + 13200 = 16400
Catherine Hardee 18800 – 7601 = 11199 (What is Poirot?)
(For the record: I matched Catherine.)
As I said, I think there is something to be said for “poor performance following offering a tie” — I’m sure there’s probably enough Archive data to tell me, I just need to ask the right question to get the data that I want!
Jeanie will eventually have some fun stories from the Tournament of Champions; one of us will have a recap tomorrow!
