Am I allowed to consult with my wife on the Top Chef question?
nope

And not just because my wife would be no help at all (although it's probably a factor).
It sounds like other people in this thread admitted to getting help is why I ask.
If u are referring to my comment, I told my daughter I wasn’t taking any of the help she wanted to give me. That’s why I noted that she mocked the answers I submitted.

I'm not being a dick, just trying to clarify a little bit. My wife is almost always going to be of no help to me with 95 percent of these questions, but she probably could have on the Top Chef one.

I'll admit, I ask my wife her opinion on some of these. She's normally 0.002% helpful. Mostly nice to just bounce my ideas off another human before I convince myself that Looper made 100 Million at the box office.

I would imagine the score for an incorrect answer on your question will be one of the two lowest such scores this week. And the high likelihood of the opponent also missing the question makes it a push, unless someone is super concerned about tie-breakers in week 4.

Looked it up - it crossed my mind when I sent the answers in that that person might somehow have never won that category but then thought, no , surely they won that category. Amazing.

It remains a great question.

Yeah, I don't watch Top Chef, but for whatever reason (my wife being an amazing cook, and that her brother once owned a restaurant) I know the sauces.

Tons of close games - 7 decided by 6 points or less. Another bloodbath though for sure - there's at least one wrong answer on every question and only one Swamper went 10 for 10.
