So, we end up with The Calico Cat in the top spot. She has 12/12, and takes home her whopping sixth Gold Star. With six out of the nine Stars in her trophy case representing top finishes, she has the highest proportion of Gold Stars of any regular Quizzer.

MJ, also with 12/12, takes the Silver Star. That's MJ's highest finish to date in Thursday competition!

Kadonkadonk, with 11/12, takes her second Blue Star. In so doing, she becomes only the second person to take Stars in four consecutive Quizzes. When Rex Parker did it back in TQIV - VII, he came back in TQVIII to set the long-standing record of five in a row. Kadonk is white hot -- but does she have what it take to match Rex's record? Tune in next week!
