For the 2nd show in a row Matt directly follows the interviews w/ the TDD on the $800 Acronyms & Abbreviations answer.

The cosmetics brand e.l.f. is an acronym for these three areas where its products are used.

“What’s…ears, lips, face?”…E doesn’t stand for ears, Matt- it stands for eyes.

Matt ($4800) attempts a TDD again w/ the $1600 Inspired Characters two choices into this rd. of play.

Leon Rom, a leader of King Leopold’s Congo death squad, was thought by some to have inspired this 1902 Joseph Conrad character.

“What’s..Kurtz?”…that Heart of Darkness character’s correct. Does Matt locate DD #2? Yes on that $1600 row for The Fact of the Matter; Christopher’s within reach w/ $8600. Of his $17,200 Matt gambles 10 large.

All matter shares this physical property that keeps it from responding instantly to any attempt to change its state of motion.

“What’s..inertia?”…is right!
