Stephanie was lucky to be better than her first game. Happy Thanksgiving!
To be honest, Dal, I’d say that the Election Day game was weird in a bunch of ways. I’d say that today’s performance was closer to her true skill level.
Alex ate hallucinogens 😚😜
I’m not so sure. I thought he was simply making a joke.
But he was in his 20s and in entertainment in the 1960s… *shrug*
Perhaps. Regardless, i’m enjoying his candour these last few seasons.
Why did Christina not appear with the other two contestants at the end?
If you look really closely, she was on stage, just not in the shots they picked.
Indeed, but it still seemed quite odd. They almost always open and close the last segment with a long shot of the stage showing all 4 of them. I cannot remember a time where they’d only shown close ups and intentionally omitted one of the contestants. I actually stepped away at that point (to refill my coffee cup, of course) and my wife was sufficiently taken with the oddity of it that she reran that segment to show me.
I wonder if there was something about her clothing from the waist down (not shown behind the podium) that the producers were unhappy about (pattern, color, etc.).
That had to have been it. It was really odd.
Or, she was overcome by the whole experience and started crying (and the producers didn’t want to show that). She did seem quite nervous.
You know, you’re more likely right than me. They could have cropped the shots to show her only from the waist up if the color or pattern of her skirt/slacks didn’t show well. The fact that they cropped out her face/upper body, which we had already seen, makes the crying/distressed suggestion more likely.
