8) Not best known for film acting*

16) Known for comedy
17) Born before 1950
18) Not a famous husband
19) Born east of the Mississippi
20) Born south of the Mason Dixon Line
21) It would be fair to say that she is well known from a show from before 1979, but her television acting career proper started in 1979, and in my opinion she is not best known for a TV show before 1980
22) Shows on ABC, NBC, CBS, TBS, FX, and UPN

I'm not sure how many DQs remain, but I think a bonus DQ is in order for whomever wants it.

Right. Now this is the point where you say:

Time to ask your final DQ in the form of "Are you Firstname Lastname?" and give a deadline.



Mine is:
DQ: Are you Thea Vidale?

Hi, kitap! Welcome to the game!

Normally you have to have a DQ from an answered IQ in the game to participate in the final death-defying round, BTW.

I actually didn't realize that either. I thought the first name last name round was separate and in addition to the DQ round. Well, I should get it right next game then I think.

Time has expired.

I am Telma Hopkins, a member of the pop music group Tony Orlando and Dawn and a singer/performer/actor on a variety show of the same name and who had regular supporting roles in several sitcoms including Bosom Buddies, Gimme a Break! and Family Matters. She also starred in her own sitcom, Getting By, a show I had never heard of. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telma_Hopkins

I am neither Frodo nor Bilbo Baggins. I am not Lobelia Sackville-Baggins (which should be an S, I'm thinking.)

If I'm wrong about Lobelia, take a DQ.
