During Paula's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, she had a bit of help from P.J. on answering one of the questions. In response, Paula said that she cheated after Peter and Bill took her correct answer. After her round ended, she asked if she could have that applied to P.J. and deducted from her score (in which Paula would have 12 points, not 10 as she mentioned).
