Trivia Recap – Game #627 – January 14, 2022 – Virtual Stump! Format

Here were our questions from a virtual Stump! based trivia game we played January 14 – all teams except one missed the final about high-earning TV performers (most of whom seem to be former movie stars). Special thanks to San Francisco host A.J. for providing the questions since I could not copy them over (it’s a Zoom setting the hosts can turn on or off, apparently):

Round One

1) Duets – What is the only song by Sonny & Cher that hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100?

2) Lawsuits – In 2001, Casey Martin successfully sued the PGA under the Americans with Disabilities Act in order to allow him to use what during competition?

3) Canada – Victoria is the capital city of which Canadian province, where the most populous city is Vancouver? NERD POINT: Name either of the next two most populous cities in this province.

4) TV Characters – Barbara Eden stars as the title character, a woman with magical powers, on all five seasons of what TV series that premiered in 1965?

Mystery Category: Crossword – Answer based on the crossword-style clue given. The FIRST letter of each answer is the SECOND letter of the following answer. For example: If the first answer is “Stump,” then “S” would be the second letter of the second answer, and so on.

M1. (8 letters) Spotted power-up item in the Mario franchise

M2. (7 letters) A strong feeling, such as love or anger

M3. (9 letters) A social gathering, such as after a wedding

M4. (4 letters) Latin for “bear”

Round Two

5) Video Games – Red, Chuck, the Blues, Bomb, Matilda, Stella, Hal, Terence, and Bubbles are the attacking characters in what video game, originally released in 2009?

6) What insect is divided into three ecological groups: dampwood, drywood, and subterranean?

7) Insects – What coffee drink, with a name from the Italian meaning “milk,” is made with espresso and steamed milk?

8) ’90s Movies – What 1999 found footage horror film is about three student filmmakers who enter the woods in Maryland to document a local legend that supposedly lives there?

Mystery Two – Visual

We got all of these correct.

Final Category – TV Performers

According to therichest.com, there are six performers making at least $1 million per episode of a TV series as of 2021, which is more than Ellen Pompeo on Grey’s Anatomy and Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: SVU. Name one of those six performers.

We incorrectly guessed Kevin Costner (though seriously he is worth that much money)!

As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, Beth Dutton!
