I wish I had those $100K & $250K questions! But first, I would have had to be smart enough to ATA on Q3 and jump Q7 & Q10. I could have got any of those wrong.

Easiest stack in a long time, and by far the easiest $100,000 question of the season IMO.

Patrick's right. You have to know which animals are native to Africa (just the baboon) and which countries are in Africa (all four).

Good point on the elephant question, but animal questions aren't that stuff if you know ANYTHING at all about animals. These haven't been obscure, like some of the $100,000 questions (Barbie's scale comes to mind).

Since the question specifies an African safari, you can eliminate a choice if the animal comes from elsewhere, even if you know nothing about the corresponding country. And that leaves just one.

Well, if he's "obviously in a sports car" why did you jump the question, Patrick?

OK, I got the answer but I don't understand why it's right - petroleum jelly has no odor. It's when you mix it with camphor and other stuff that you get something that helps with breathing problems (Vicks Vap-O-Rub).

I find it fascinating how often squirrels are coming up in popular culture - trivia questions, commercials, etc.

I'd love to answer any questions, I just found this board. I also was a +1 on my best friends episode and helped Terry Crews prepare for the season (where again in a test game I won 250K). I can't find my buddies episode (Kevin Brady) I've searched here to no avail.

Being a member of the Transcript Team can be a lot of work and the Team hasn't always been able to keep its roster full. In fact, I think it may have one or more openings right now! Care to help out? It won't solve the problem of missing past transcripts, but it may be a way to pay it forward. --Bob

I honestly don't watch the show any more. It can be pretty stressful. My friend Chris Lastrapes was just on and he led me to this board when we were discussing the difficulty of his questions versus mine.
