Within a few rounds, it became clear who was going to win the game. In fact, by the episode’s penultimate round, Nura had swept the board and secured $13,970 in the bank. In contrast, Troy had bagged just $4,300, and poor Steve hadn’t managed to win anything at all.
As the episode entered its last speed round, Nura was the definite fan favorite. After Troy correctly guessed “T” in the two-letter clue word, audiences turned their attention to Nura, expecting another sensible play. However, what she said next left them more than a little confused.
With complete assuredness, she uttered the least likely letter possible: “Z.” Naturally, audience members and fellow contestants alike were baffled. For example, Steve – smiling for the cameras just a minute earlier – furrowed his brow and stared at Nura in utter disbelief.
