Last week team Russia, China and Germany crashed and burned. Germany looked good until the final round. Remember that you may have as many poeple on your team as you can get into your house to participate online with.
This week team Germany failed miserably at the beginner level. Team Shanghai (China) did not do well at the intermediate level. Team Dubai (UAE) was a big surprise. We thought she was mentally challenged at first but after a bumpy start she almost took it all! There were some complaints from the audience about the million dollar question but that was just because they had fallen in love with her winsome ways.
