That has got to be close to, if not a new speed record right there. 20 seconds left? Awesome work!

I'm guessing here, but I'm thinking the episode Buzzr aired the 20th was episode A-92D, 9/3/79. I say that, since at the start of the show Tom mentions that they've given away over $75,000 in the last four shows, and right before that day's Gauntlet Tom expands on that by saying if Gwendoline won, it'd be the fourth win in five attempts, and in Randy's recollections he mentions that there were three other $25,000 winners besides him on his second tape day. So, since we know Randy's second show was A-88D, counting four shows forward would get us to A-92D. Which means the commercial alignments should go back to normal by Monday, if they air A-89D tomorrow, A-90D on Thursday, etc.

This makes sense. since Randy won in A-88D and Anne won in A-90D. If a contestant wins in A-91D, that would fit perfectly with 3 wins ($75,000).

Did some looking, of the episodes that have been shown on buzzr there have been 4 wins. Anne did it in 49 seconds. The next fastest was Ken from episode 2. He did it in 50 seconds. Randy did it in 60 seconds.

One other thing on the ep aired yesterday:

I think there was a judge's call edit on the 3rd round board- On the blooper "A girl who sleeps with a piece of wedding cake will dream of ants.". The contestant said a bridegroom, and then the clock cut away for a second or two and from the gestures of Tom and the contestant it looked like they stopped, conferred (looks like the answer they were looking for was "their future husband") and determined they could take the answer and restarted the round from the bell.

Looks like another quickie judging edit during the 1st board on today's show

Well the 2nd ep they aired on the Lost and Found special is interesting…

A player completely exhausted a level without a right answer- she hit 3 blocks and had 2 wrong answers….

And the champion's Gauntlet loss was overturned after the break!

I actually had a feeling that might happen- I thought he started his answer right before the buzzer, and it makes it a good ep to do doing the special

Does anyone know if we're going to see the episode with the contestant who injured his leg from jumping up and down after winning the match, or did that incident occur earlier in the run? I remember reading about that a few years back but I've never seen a clip of it, or his triumphant return several weeks later.

They didn't.

Nice to see, even though I (and I'm sure most of us) knew what happened.....
