If you are the type of person that enjoys a trip down memory lane, you can find the previous episode’s challenge here

It appears that the answer was SECOND. Get it? SECOND.

Yes you have another chance.

Hint… the answer isn’t SECOND

Reminder: The prize is awarded randomly from all those who answered correctly.
My computer says the answer is 42
They were previously known as Lists.
