Transcript 10/7/2011 - Russell Walks (carryover contestant)

#1 Post by BBTranscriptTeam » Mon Oct 10, 2011 5:56 am

Russell Walks

Yesterday Russell got a question about "Searching for Mr. Good Enough" and after answering he proved he was better than good enough by giving his wife a big hug when his bank reached $50,500. (The clip is shown.) Russell jumped over one question even though he knew the nswer, but he wasn't confident enough. Russell has wanted to be an artist since he was born. He's a big science fiction fan and saw Star Wars at the age of 11 or 12 and now that's what he does - illustrations for trading cards, posters and other media. He still has one JTQ and his ATA remaining.

ATA results

I was telling everyone at our Thanksgiving celebration about question 7. Only 61% thought that Vermont was next to Quebec??? None of the other answers were in the ball park.

Well, you know that famous New Yorker map really only has detail facing west. I thought 61% wasn't bad! :P
