R2 had RESHINED, which isn't in Lexplorer but is in ODO under RESHINE. Susie mentioned it during filming but it was edited out.

Good game. I actually thought Annie was the stronger player anyway despite her lower seeding. Elliott bulked up his points score by getting all his conundrums, but I found him easier to beat than Annie during their runs.

Also, I might have mentioned this before, but Elliott always picked three vowels. While annoying in itself, what really did it for me was that he always paused before the final letter as if he was thinking about it, but then always picked a consonant anyway.

ROMANIZE isn't as good as it gets, PROMAZINE is there for 9.

Much admiration and respect for Annie but wondering why she's been allowed to come into the finals of the series after the one she was in when other players (e.g. Michael Chadwick, series 63) who've not been able to make their own series finals don't seem to have been given this opportunity?

Good luck to her for the semis.

Just wondering, why is ROMANIZE allowed if it is capitalised? I've noticed this before but I don't know why.

Also, stupidly missed FEATHERS in R13 by missing out the first E and only getting FATHERS. :oops:

My understanding was that the dates were changed by the production team, after she'd scheduled something around the primary given dates. Whereas in previous instances, people had just not expected to make the finals, and so had booked over them. Something like that anyway.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...
