I would still have all lifelines, but I don't think they would help. "Oscitation" reminds me of "osculation", which is "kissing", so I might eliminate A and C on that basis. Of course then the 50:50 would leave the other two. I doubt the audience would know this. None of the people I would consider for my +1 would know this, either. So I walk away just as Louis did.
