Spoilers for Monday 2 October 2017 (Series 77, Prelim 64)

If Jon was impersonating The Donald in the GOURAMI round, he could have thrown in a line or two about strengthening the Cuban EMBARGO.
There are three erors in this semtence.

The challenger's Andy Murray impersonation was pretty good too.

Little bit of inside info about this game... Jacob was a last minute stand-in player. Someone by the name of Emily (not Cox! ;)) got cold feet and pulled out on the day. So fair play to him for stepping up.

Watching yourself back on TV is a bit cringey... but my first real face-palm moment came in this game. I fluffed the final numbers game, then had an awkward exchange with Rachel where I ended up saying "I need to be less dumb"... If I could turn back time and erase that entire exchange (and particularly that comment) I would.

What about your pronunciation of GIAOUR where you basically just made a noise? :lol:

That was the realisation of a long held fantasy!
Or possibly a genuine inability to pronounce it...?
One of those two.

When Jacob was being introduced he told us what he was going to be doing next week. I expected Nick to ask what would happen if he was still playing. I guess not asking makes more sense now.
