I don't know whether he will octo, but he put in a good performance yesterday, not quite as good today, though he solved the conundrum very quick, which stumped me.

Well everyone has off days. So if he has any more off days but they don't cost him the game he can become an octochamp I think

There is a player coming on this week called Steve Rush who will most likely beat Eddie if they face, but Eddie is a really nice guy and I hope he has success on the show. :)

R1 the 'th' in anthelion is pronounced as in anthill. It is a contraction of anti-helion, opposite or against the sun. Similarly ant-helminthic, which helps eliminate worms. Lovely.

Anyone else read that as th in anthelion is pronounced as in an-thill, and wonder what on earth an anthill was and why anyone would pronounce with a hard t anyway?

Just me?
