Thursday’s match featured two crucial blunders in quick succession.

Mark picked the wrong value for the Penultimate Clue… then proceeded to buzz in and get it wrong, giving Hunter the lock. More on that – and many other things – in the video.

Hunter has now won 2 games and $44,601. I guess Mark’s mistake(s) actually saved him $1,000.
