Amazed Round 1 didn't get a giggle when the first six letters were PENQIS...

Did John say GILTED? That's no good -- at least not anymore :p

There's been a spate of misdeclarations recently. How odd.

The challenger seemed quite good for most of the game, but fell apart towards the end. I think it was her habit of asking for four small and two large rather than the other way round that caused everyone in the studio to turn against her, which ultimately put her off her game.

R1: Pennies
R2: Lithoed
R3: 280
R4: aganol. Anyone know if that ain't in?
R5: spared
R6: same way as John.
R7: misfare
R8: house
R9: (4+(4-3)*9)+75=120
R10: painted
R11: romanite
R12: stared
R13: prebait
R14: 342 but I think I made a mistake. Doesn't really matter.
R15: didn't get the conundrum.
So I either won 71-65 against John. Or it was 65-65. So would have needed a tie break. Depends on the aganol word. Can someone please tell me if that spelling's allowed?

No, it's not. AGONAL is a valid anagram.

I wondered if something went wrong with the filming of this round and they edited it as best they could. Nick asked the player with the longer word to declare first, and nobody seemed to notice that someone had won the round. It was only when the score came up that I was sure what had happened.

What?? I never noticed any sustained booing. Why would you think that? And if they did turn against her, it would have been because she set a new record for the number of times a contestant has said "Please". Nerves, I guess, which was a shame because she did seem good. She got level after missing the nine letter word.

Ok. Then it would have been 65-65 if I was on and a tie break conundrum would have been needed. Thanks Toby

There was a cabbage that flew past her left ear at one point, but she wasn't the main focus of the camera at the time.

I think you may be mixing up Countdown with the Tour de France. Or did she take more than the permitted number of puffs on her inhaler?
