OPHIRA EISENBERG, HOST:
Now it's time to crown this week's grand champion. Let's bring back our winners. From the Hokey Pokey: Jason Salisbury.
EISENBERG: From Everyone's a Critic: Rob Jacklosky. From Taylor Swifties: Jonathan Turer. From What's Next: Brian Little. And from Radio Pictionary: Nicole Holliday.
EISENBERG: I'm going to ask our puzzle guru Greg Pliska to take us out.
GREG PLISKA: I've been wanting to take you out all night.
PLISKA: All of you. All right, the final game, contestants, will put you on a highway to hell. It's called AC/DC. The rules are simple. All of the answers either start with the initials AC or DC. For example, if we asked you what town serves as the basis for the street names in Monopoly, you'd say Atlantic City.
We're playing this spelling bee style, which means you will each answer and rotate to the next person. One wrong answer and you're out. You'll only have a few seconds to give us an answer. And the last person standing will be our grand winner. We start with Jason. This author of the Miss Marple series is estimated to have sold over two billion books.
