Newbie Ramya Auroprem sadly spells amarevole with an i instead of an o. Ding! Well-done, of course.
Kyle Mou offers a glowing performance of becquerel. Aishwarya Pastapur gets a cheesy word—Caerphilly—and refuses to crumble. Illinois remains strong!
Kennyi Aouad spells palatschinken with a double l and falls flat as a pancake—but only in the figurative sense. He had a great run. Ding!
Kavya Shivashankar gets a fairly common musical term: ecossaise. This should be no problem for her given her interest in classical music. And it isn't.
Newbie Anamika Veermani seems unsure about fackeltanz—another music/dance term, and she trips up. Ding! Great work.
Tim Ruiter shrugs off jacqueminot.
Down to four finalists: two male, two female, two from Illinois!
