Lauren (cited above) was on Jeopardy the week before I was, and also lost to Kavanaugh.

Marah's bio has a line for her appearance on Tuesday. Thanks Carpe Diem. I agree, alietr, that the resemblance is strong enough to chance we're right.

Are there any resources out there with episode information and which contestants are on which episodes? I haven't gotten any official confirmation as to when my episode is airing, but my math says it has to be soon.

The episode I saw yesterday was a rough one for both the contestant (Jonathan) and the Master Mind (Ken). Both of them missed three of the five questions in the final round; Ken only won because Jonathan chose the wrong isotope of carbon (16 instead of 14). Questions missed included the oldest continuously operated airline in the U.S. (Delta), and the painter who got involved in a duel with a critic (Manet). I can't remember the third one.

I would love to know which biblical animal the writers had in mind on that final round question.

I'd guess camel. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance finds 56 references of "camel" and "camels", and 178 references for "sheep". 56 is closer to "about fifty times" than 178 is.

I said "lamb" (which has 98).

I imagine pig/hog/swine is up there too.

Comments on the 4/20 episode:
Spoiler
Still Ken, Muffy & Jonathan. Are the episodes in order and not the jumble like BETS? Ken took his first 2nd round exit.

Capital of Australia? Yeah, I would hope that gets player and master mind off to a good start.

Clothing company with the moose? No clue although I was certain the contestant and master mind were wrong.

Century for shoe innovation? WGA S or F. Use that for the 1st round and not the bonus round.

Kite winder? One archive hit:

#5146, aired 2007-01-15 ARCHITECTURE $400: A kite winder is the central of 3 winders that help make a 90-degree turn in a flight of these

Compson for the Faulkner work? Enough hits for me to get it.

Mark, yes, when the player doesn't win the $10,000 end game, the episodes are jumbled. GSN's remake of 1 vs. 100 had the same formula in which the episode ended evenly, the production codes are jumbled around. The difference, 1 vs. 100 didn't have an announcer while sadly, this show does.

BTW, there was a $10,000 end game win on today's airing. I also wish GSN would release the production codes for this show or at least broadcast them in production order once this season is done with on July 3.

Fun fact, Vladimir Lenin was actually a time traveler and went back to write The Communist Manifesto with Marx & Engels.

Today's contestant was 2010 J! College Tournament Champion Erin McLean.

Bummer she fell just short. She did really well, but once Jonathan said Stowe, I knew she was toast.

Ahh I really wanted to see Erin’s episode. Has anyone figured out a streaming option besides just having basic cable?

https://www.frndlytv.com/ is the cheapest option I've seen, though their interface is a bit clunky (I had lots of issues with picture quality/skipping when I first got it, but not very much now). Available on Sling TV, with an add-on package, probably the best option if you were looking for a more robust option.
