That was one of the weirdest episode openings ever, according to Zarte. Im not really watching. Mike's won a few, how's he gonna do today?

Without revealing his real last name, does anyone know if this challenger is "Alex H" from Apterous?

What happened? I wasn't really paying attention. (I'm not asking specifically you because you weren't really watching.)

Nick just started grilling her without any real context about the pseudonyms celebrities used to check into hotels and tried to claim that Rachel owed him money for getting them wrong...
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

He is scoring well and hopefully may get past the 800 mark, which would be nice to see- he can still play competently too even when filming 5 shows in 1 day, with still 1 more to go in the day. He is consistent in both fields, though if he were to make the finals, then I would expect his numbers to be a bit tighter, as he has missed 1 or 2 sums I would expect him tk have got, but it is different under studio pressure :)

Yeah I've heard the pressure makes it harder and as I sent out my application yesterday, I'm hoping it won't get to me.
