Well, I didn't see Trish nicking the conundrum like that, and it could yet be a killer blow to Ryan in the long run, as I'll explain...

Ryan has been a revelation on the show, and has produced some magnificent performances, especially yesterday, but his octototal is 820 points, 6 behind Ian Volante's total, so if he had got the conundrum, he would've gone ahead of Ian into the #2 spot, but he'll have to settle for #3 for now. :D :D :D
