S01.E13: Championship Match

An American Trail: We Will Go West

Map of America for the pop culture locations game

Derek, Ilan, and Monty complete the running of the trivia gauntlet first by getting into contrarian pop music. How many songs that have “don’t” in the imperative can our players identify? Then, it’s a test of pop culture settings and U.S. geography as our players arrange movie and TV settings from east to west.

After 12 matchups of pop culture knowledge display, 24 contestants eliminated, and 36 lightning rounds played, it all comes down to this: the season one finale to determine our first Super-Mondo Champion of Champions!

A mythic lightning round category finally sees its day in the sun before we crown our winner. Remember to solve the riddle, because season two is right around the corner.

We are now accepting applications for season three.

Though my movie had little to offer
I did have a run from a Goosebumps author.
Because I don't talk, I can't say that it'd be wise
To never have called me "Giant-Sized."

Man-Thing: The low-budget horror film Man Thing was a commercial and critical flop. RL Stine, the author of Goosebumps wrote a recent Man-Thing series. He does not, actually talk. The "giant-sized" specials Marvel used to put out have been the source of much amusement with him, as the phrase "Giant Sized Man Thing" is just asking to be misinterpreted.
