7:21 pm
his planet selection was neptune, also. no, not visible to the naked eye at that time. $2,800 is what it costs you, so you drop down to $10,800 as we come to olivia. did she write neptune, also? she crossed off mars and went to jupiter instead. if you had gone one planet more, to saturn, you'd have had the correct response. what did you lose, young lady? $6,600. that drops you into second place, and it makes william crouch a semifinalist. congratulations, young man. you get to play again next week, and we get to say goodbye until next week, when we will be back with our fourth quarterfinal match. hope to see you then. have a good weekend. take care.
