No, the article clearly states that it is (and is easily confirmed to be) from Thursday's show.

By no means a technicality but is instead a well-established rule...you say EXACTLY what is on the puzzle board...no more, no less...

Pat told her not to add anything to the answer, so while it's unfortunate, rules are rules.

ObSnark: I know it's because of the 24/7 media cycle, and the sites gotta fill the void, but I really miss the days when a bad game show answer or whatever Youtube clip was not considered news.

Have they ever on the show said that you have to solve the puzzle as it is shown?

I'm sure there are others here who know, but I seem to remember this not being the first time that an "and" was tossed into the solution for one of the Crossword puzzles. Why is it a big deal this time?

IIRC, the rule goes back to the Woolery days; on one show, someone answered "Tweedledee and Tweedledum" to the puzzle "Tweedledum and Tweedledee," and they accepted it, but the next day, Chuck began adding, "You have to solve the puzzle exactly as it appears on the puzzle board."

The one time I've seen it called in the Sajak era, other than for pronouncing something wrong, was when somebody added "The" to the beginning of "Atlanta Falcons."

And if you thought that was something, I point out once more, for perspective's sake, a similar instance from a 2008 Filipino Wheel episode.

Nothing can be just a small deal anymore. Pre-internet it was just a thing you saw on TV and reacted to among your friends and family.

As an aside, Kris Aquino must be paid by the YELL.  It pays to be the offspring of Filipino political royalty, figuratively.

I haven't watched any this season, but I know Pat said "Don't add anything" as a contestant went to solve a Crossword puzzle roughly 100% of the time on the episodes I saw.

It was my recollection that not only does Pat tell you not to add anything, but the coordinators go over all the categories in rotation and make sure to emphasize not adding anything to any of the puzzles, but especially the Crossword.
Me: Of all of the game shows you've hosted besides Jeopardy!, like High Rollers or Classic Concentration, which is your favorite?
Alex Trebek: I'd have to say To Tell The Truth, because it was the first time in my career that I got to sit down while I was hosting.

This is actually one of the rare instances where "literally" would have been wholly appropriate. :)

I didn't go literally because royalty, to me, implies rule by a king and/or queen, and the Philippines is not a monarchy.
