LEGIONED was there as a beater in round... maybe 12? some round anyway.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

Yes, as I guessed, OUTBOX as a verb means to be better at boxing than someone else. On the other hand, INBOX as a verb is somewhat more puzzling.

To my surprise, ODO tells me the email meaning of OUTBOX is an Americanism. What's it called on these shores then? I always thought it was called an outbox, just the same.

I know I overcomplicate number rounds at times, but doing 25/5 to get 5 is just dumb.
