So, it seems the faux geek won out - for all his Sun Tzu-spouting, it came down to facts about their partners. Wow, surprise of all surprises, the pre-med won a contest of memory. I do have to give props to Richard for figuring out that that would be the challenge. So close! 8 to 8, 9 to 9 in a tie-breaker, and sudden death in overtime on the twelfth question.

Caitilin impressed me with her general ability. She seems to be a wellspring of hidden talent. Speaking of which, Richard Rubin is right: Mindy's brilliant! And is she the cutest or what?

I have to say, both Richard and Chuck displayed some unexpected latent traits. Not Rirchard's piano virtuousity; I could have guessed that. That Chuck does seem to have more than a passing faddish acquaintance with Eastern philosophy and that Richard obviously has more versatility up his sleeve than his one-dimensional performances suggest: those were interesting revelations.

Speaking of performances: Does anyone know what the deal is with Richard? Is he really a plant (an actor sent in to stir up the waters)? That seems a bit contrived if he ended up in four elimination rounds. Mindy didn't seem to have any idea of it, unless she was in on the ruse - which is a distinct possibility.

I got your kiai right here!
Ask for a "Houdini", get a Houdini! (I know, the actual attribution of death is appendicitis/peritonitis, not the gut trasking.)



OMG Mindi is teh hawt. ;-)
Seriously, she's very bright - I've been saying it for weeks!

Why would you love it if Richard turned out to be an actor? Because they didn't win? Interesting twist to the show? I'd like to just see the expression on Chuck's face.

Oh, you know it!
My sentiments exactly.

And BTW, this bio page says Mindi is a Special Education major at Missouri.

Professional attitude
Well, yes - I might add that she was a lot more professional than Chuck, with his off-the-cuff (and deliberately insulting) diagnosis.
