Notes
During the second panel round, Adam Felber enthusiastically and confidently answered "selfie!" for his answer. So much so, that it stunned Peter Sagal and yelled out "Yes!", which caused Bill Kurtis to ring the bell (even though it was not the correct answer) and Adam responding with "What?!?". All three panelists were tied with three points each at the beginning of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round.
