trivia: This goo was originally requested by Kat Stratton, but Scott considered canceling it due to Stratton disappearing from the game. When C K tried to perk up the Goo World Tour by requesting "the gnome from Amélie" as a goo, Scott talked him into claiming Stratton's old request as his own. Unfortunately, most players guessed the director of "Amélie," Jean-Pierre Jeunet, a good guess but not correct. (Other incorrect guesses included Audrey Tautou, Roger Vadim, and Guillaume Laurant.) Ten players were tied for the lead score in Round XXII this week, and this goo eliminated eight of them.
