Spoilers for Tuesday 26th June 2018 (Series 79, Prelim 2)

Post by Johnny Canuck » Tue Jun 26, 2018 2:31 pm

Not sure if anyone was aware, but Jodine is a returnee, having previously appeared against Tia Corkish in Series 67. In any case, her "second début" was very impressive. PORTRAITS is quite a low-probability 9 and EMOTIVE was a tidy spot too.

2nd Numbers Alt.: (100 + 7) * 4 - 6
Q: What's black and white and 3D?
A: A zebra in Blender.

A very impressive debut by Jodine- definitely octo material and would like to see her do well because she isn't a "typical Countdown" contestant. She played brilliantly throughout. Plus most of the DC beaters I had never heard of today- hence a bit of frustration my end :)

Very impressed with Jodine. She deserves another go.

What do you mean a typical countdown contestant?

Someone who isn't black.

But anyway, she played really well today. If she carries on like this, then definitely a realistic octochamp.

Well if she carries on like this, then you're right gavin. We could have the first female octochamp since Annie humphries almost two years ago

Wow, what a debut by Jodine! Brilliant score, really hope she becomes an octochamp. She seems quite calm and very likeable. :)

She was very unlucky with BOOTLET. That seemed very plausible indeed.

Jodine would have taken me to a crucial playing along at home - 6 maxes (which is the same as she achieved when she lost on her first appearance), but I think that understates her performance. Will be interesting to see how she progresses.

Agreed- I thought the maxes were quite obscure.
