I was hoping to post this on Monday, but I've been fighting a nasty cold all week.


Solve the 100 clues below. Then, using two names and one of the Associated Words at the bottom, form 50 connections based on a Tangredi, or hidden principle, that you must discover for yourself. No name or Associated Word will be used more than once. Alternate matches are possible, but there is only one combination that properly uses all 100 names.

It should also be noted that clue #100 is deliberately vague because his identity will invariably reveal this puzzle's theme. Nonetheless, it would behoove you to establish the Tangredi before you attempt to guess #100.


1. The award named after her first husband will soon be handed out for the first time in eight years.

2. His great-great-grandfather, Tom Burghardt, was a slave who won his freedom by serving in the Revolutionary Army to fight the redcoats.

4. The reality series that featured him as a high school teacher was an abject failure of the 2010 TV season.

5. One of the very few times that a game show aired on the BET network was when this man hosted a short-lived revival of a short-lived family-vs.-family musical game show.

6. On television, he played a con man surnamed Trump who tricked naive Americans into believing that the only way they could be saved from disaster was to lock up the hero and build a wall... and no, it's not Alec Baldwin.

7. His career began as a fact checker for a news network that folded in 2018. Now he fact-checks a con man surnamed Trump every weeknight on a news network that was totally not failing in 2018.

8. Letitia was the rarely-used real first name of the role for which she won two Emmys.

9. He got his film debut--albeit in a minor role--in a blockbuster musical when a former president's son pulled out of the project at the last minute.

10. This former president's mistress of over thirty years, who also happened to be his wife's personal secretary, was with him on the day that he died.

11. Though he didn't appear in the movie, he did receive an original Maltese falcon statuette as a gift from Jack Warner.

12. This man has starred in more Notorious TV Turkeys than I can care to recall. Among them: a spin-off of a popular 1960s-70s ABC sitcom, a reboot of a popular 1970s-80s ABC sitcom, and a sitcom version of a popular cooking show.

13. She was one of the youngest people in history to have her own radio show, when she hosted a weekly fifteen-minute music series for NBC at just twenty-one years old.

14. To date, this former child actress's last on-screen appearance was in a short film about a has-been actor who struggled in his second chance at stardom. The film was written and directed by a Hollywood legend's son, who died suddenly of atherosclerosis at only 36 years old.

15. This onetime Marvel hero played a polio victim in a film directed by a onetime Marvel villain.

16. In 1964, Isaac Stern introduced this child prodigy to the national TV audience.

17. This former college classmate of President Obama was the inspiration for the character of Deputy Kovacs in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel.

18. This funnyman's college classmates included two Oscar-winning actresses and the Emmy-nominated star of a long-running sitcom who would be replaced in the cast of that sitcom by one of her Oscar-winning classmates.

19. Chet Atkins once claimed this multiple Grammy winner "single-handedly" saved the country music industry from its apparent downward spiral during the 1980s.

20. Her comedy career began in college when she was a part of an improv troupe called My Mother's Fleabag.

21. He may have been the last person to see Sal Mineo alive (apart from Sal's murderer, obviously).

22. In her side career as an artist, she has shown off her works in exhibitions called Totem, Antenna, Catapult, and Glass Onion.

23. She made television history in England two-and-a-half years before a Bored Buddy accomplished the same feat on American television.

24. This sports legend completes the following logical sequence: Warren Earp, Edmond Dantés, Jesus, _______.

25. His three-act tragic opera, based on a Pierre Corneille play, was censored by the conservative Italian rulers on the basis of sensitive subject matter to the point where the composer vowed never to come to Naples again. (He broke that promise four years later.)

27. As a teenager, he got a five-pound-and-five-shilling loan from his mother so that he could purchase a Gallotone Champion. The rest is history.

28. Despite a film and television career spanning 65 years, younger people only know her as a shill for the adult diaper industry.

29. His blues albums have featured collaborations with Jean McClain, Irma Thomas, Dr. John, and Tom Jones. (Another Tom Jones reference appears at #95.)

30. Jimmy Kimmel doesn't have time for him.

31. He made his eighteenth and final film appearance in one of two movies directed in 1980 by a former Best Actor Oscar winner.

32. She will always be remembered/reviled for her role as the heroine of what is widely considered the worst ever film adaptation of a video game, which one of her co-stars famously called "the worst thing I ever did."

35. This historically significant person was portrayed in two different films by two two-time Oscar winners, one of whom won one of his Oscars for portraying this person.

36. It's a pretty safe bet that this former Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player didn't win any Father of the Year awards in 2014.

37. Eight years after she won an Emmy for dramatic acting, she won an Emmy for directing a comedy series.

38. Speaking of TV directors, this actor's father directed three episodes of Little House on the Prairie--including one in which this actor appeared as a teenager--and later received an Emmy nomination for directing a short-lived legal drama.

39. While he was a student at Wichita State University, he won $7,000 in a miniature golf tournament that aired on ESPN. (Yes, ESPN used to air stuff like that!) In 2018, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame of a different ball sport.

41. His father's recording studio, Aura Recording Inc., was partly responsible for the production of the Tennessee Tuxedo cartoon.

43. She never won an Emmy off of her four career nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in both drama and comedy. Contrary to popular belief, she has never been jealous of either of the Emmy-winning co-stars of her respective series.

54. He used to be married to the founder of a company that answers the question, "Which s**thole countries do my ancestors come from?" That, in turn, made him the ex-brother-in-law of the current CEO of a company that answers the question, "Where can I waste my entire day watching cute kittens?"

I consider anyone participating in this "game" to be condoning the rhetoric used in the avatar of the game host.

Am I right?

If not, why feed the troll?

Question 89: I assume this is asking about the person who was oldest at the time he scored his 25,000th point, not the earliest-born person who has ever scored 25,000 points in the NBA. Please confirm. --Bob

Making the answer Vince Carter, as he recently passed 25,000 points, and he is 41.


As Super Mario Brothers is widely-acknowledged as the worst video game to film adaptation, Samantha Mathis would be the answer to #32.

JASON DERULO

70. NBC did to her in 1987 what ABC did to another actress in 2018, but for entirely different reasons.

VALERIE HARPER?

I'd forgotten all about it until I read this.

The show was on NBC. Harper had a falling out with someone - billing? $$? Don't remember.

First consolidation…

Solve the 100 clues below. Then, using two names and one of the Associated Words at the bottom, form 50 connections based on a Tangredi, or hidden principle, that you must discover for yourself. No name or Associated Word will be used more than once. Alternate matches are possible, but there is only one combination that properly uses all 100 names.

It should also be noted that clue #100 is deliberately vague because his identity will invariably reveal this puzzle's theme. Nonetheless, it would behoove you to establish the Tangredi before you attempt to guess #100.

1. The award named after her first husband will soon be handed out for the first time in eight years.

9. He got his film debut--albeit in a minor role--in a blockbuster musical when a former president's son pulled out of the project at the last minute.
BRUCE JENNER

10. This former president's mistress of over thirty years, who also happened to be his wife's personal secretary, was with him on the day that he died.
