The crabs I am familiar with all have had 2 claws and 8 legs, except for King Crabs, which have 2 claws and 6 legs, less any appendages lost in battle. Google images seems to verify this.

I was not so familiar with scorpions, so I Googled their images, too, and found that they, too, seem to have 2 claws and 8 legs. Some pictures seem to show only 6 legs, but others show the front ones can be small and hard to see beneath the claws. If this transcription is correct, I think this was a bad question.

Chris made a big deal about Carson's age - 23 years old.

He was going so well, too. It's a tough call.

I met Carson at auditions in Indianapolis-ish and he definitely had the charisma for the show. I was pleasantly surprised to run into him in Vegas during taping and hoped he would've gone far. Oh well...

Some of this may be due to lots of animals being called "crabs" but they are not "true crabs", infraorder Brachyura. I believe that all Brachyura have 10 legs. King crabs, for instance, are not true crabs but are in the superfamily, Lithodoidea, of the infraorder, Anomura. The claws are modified legs.

Although they are all in Decapoda, so they should have 10 legs as well. Maybe I'm overthinking this.

Scorpions are officially arachnids and should have 8 legs. Their claws are not modified legs but pedipalps which are modified mandibles.

That is probably the actual distinction on "legs", whether or not count the "claws".
