Uma is a 4-time spelling bee champion and an aspiring pediatrician. On her previous show she had both spelling and medical questions. She spent 5 years studying spelling and says the key is learning other languages and how to pull words apart. Uma is going for $30,000 with her Ask the Audience and +1 lifelines still available. Her +1 is her mom.

$30,000: What is the only country in South America that borders both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean?

One of the worst ATA results ever. I can't imagine why so many people thought Ecuador is on the Caribbean. Did the contestant influence them in some way?

Even without knowing the geography, a little history goes a long way. Panama used to be part of Colombia. --Bob

Uma did suggest that it wasn't Venezuela, Colombia or Peru.
