Let's check in with today's matchups to help you get familiar with our contestants:
Match 1 - Billy/Nate vs. KFC/Kayce
History: Billy 4-2, Nate 5-2, KFC 2-0, Kayce 2-2
Storylines: Nate and Billy return for the fourth straight week as a duo, while KFC and Kayce make their debut as a pair. Nate and Billy are coming off a controversial win, as Billy was the first player to ever commit a double violation on the same turn.
Quotes to Remember: "Opportunity and effort equals resilience." - Nate
"The only times I've seen Kayce play have been with violations and dissension, I'm gonna need that bitch to quiet down and fall in line." - KFC
Analysis: There is going to come a time when Billy's Psycho S-h-i-t backfires immensely. Is today the day? On the flip side, both of Kayce's losses have included violations. Can she avoid her third two-hand touch?
Question 1 - Winning Team/Losing Block
Question 2 - Total Blocks
Match 2 - Ria/Robbie vs. Kate/Cons
History: Ria 1-3, Robbie 1-2, Kate 2-1, Cons 1-0
Storylines: Ria returns to the Triple S for the first time since her legendary 50 burger match nearly a month ago. She and Robbie's chemistry is expected to be top-notch. Kate and Cons have great chemistry as well, but is this a 3 v 2 match with Kate's recently announced pregnancy?
Quotes to Remember: "Kate has her mind on a lot more than Jenga. The baby is on her mind, if she was focused and really cared, she wouldn't have gotten pregnant before the season." - Robbie
"People don’t realize that pregnancy gives you a balance hormone that you can use to your advantage." - Kate
Analysis: This one is the battle of friendship. Both pairs are very close to each other, so I'm not actually expecting much trash talk here. When each team faces a tough turn, there should be no issues on team chemistry outside the square of doom.
Question 3 - Winning Team/Losing Block
Question 4 - Total Blocks
Match 3 - Trysta/Liz vs. Feitelberg/Dana Beers
History: Trysta 2-1, Liz 4-3, Feits 2-4, Dana 0-1
Storylines: Will there be some more trash talk between Trysta and Dana Beers? Their match two weeks ago got pretty intense outside the square of doom. Feitelberg will attempt to carry Dana as he has six matches played compared to Dana's one.
Quotes to Remember: "Liz is a great coach, she's an all-time Jenga player, never gets mad despite my mistakes." - Trysta
"I'm going to coach him, I need to get Dana drunk again, and we'll be gold." - Feits
Analysis: It's not a matter of if Dana and Trysta talk trash to each other. It's a matter of how much trash they will talk to each other. We also need to bring back the High Noon Hard Seltzer count. In Dana's two matches inside the Triple S, he has guzzled down 15 Nooners. 100 calories, gluten free, and no added sugar!
Question 5 - Winning Team/Losing Block
Question 6 - Total Blocks (Exact Number)
Also, here are the corresponding block numbers for each match, which is especially important for Question 6:
