Apparently someone on the British iteration of "The Price Is Right."

But why are you posting this? Is this an actual part of the first District question?

Isn't this the name of the person who runs Questions Galore? At least I seem to remember hearing that name discussed here before.

Well done Matt!

No, it is not really the first question in districts.

It was my idea of a "fun question" with tomorrow's questions less than 24 hours away.

Sorry, I can't release any more questions from the district competition. I don't want to influence the battle between NKC and Liberty any more than I already have.
