    I agree with you JP, that second straight BR win resulting in a better week 15 than last season with only 1. 8 wins behind last season week 15 so far right now.

    The H trap has bitten Nicole to the tune of the $10K Mystery Wedge. Nicole's stage fright gooseegged her and she left with $1K. So sad. Well, at least Kathleen walks away with over $65K!

    Also, Kathleen did NOT seem so sure about her answers, especially later on in the game.
