A pile of leaves and a cat were also another focus of the clue package. She was handed a backpack with “Montana” written on it. She dove headfirst out of a plane in the clue package. As she was falling, the word “spot” flew through the air.

A picture of Big Ben sat in a frame on his dinner table.

Producers ushered him off the stage and offered him a fan. He kept saying that he wanted to take the mask off backstage. After cooling down a bit, he returned to the stage.
