The guys don't get a single speed chain correct in this game. Had they scored even one, they would have been the ninth straight male winners.
At the end of round four, the ladies, trailing $2,000 to $1,700, risked $300, then linked RADIO to HAM and STATION, to give us the first ever tie. The rules call for sudden death speed chains. The girls go first and get METAL MOUTH, to go between PRECIOUS and PIECE. The boys have to link SACRED-C-P-AROUND, or lose the game. They guessed CEREMONY-PLAY. The correct answer was COW-POKE.
In round two, Dylan screws up the order play, giving Sean a turn, when it should have been one of the girls. The chain is thrown out, and a new one started. But amazingly, the girls are allowed to keep the $400 they had won in the faulty round. Luckily, it didn't affect the end results, but only just.
This second week saw the rule change as noted in the summary. Also, the player has 90 seconds to get nine answers, a change from 60 seconds to get eight.
