FunkQuest – Season 2 – Round 2 – Episode 18 – Kam Knight v Kerry Wekelo

Kam Knight and Kerry Wekelo both came into Season 2, Round 2 of FunkQuest as 'Sheriffs'. Both were knocked out in the first round but resurrected after the unavailability of two other players.

Kerry chose the first icon and question and Kam chose to answer the same question. For Kerry the answer to having given a blood donation was a simple 'Never', although she has a rare blood type, she has a condition which means that she tends to pass out.

Kam acknowledged he had given blood once and was hounded by blood drive organisations. His blood is good to use, but in the USA, blood drive organisations get paid for the amount of blood they collect - which put him off.

Question 2  "Street Fighter 2" was the game Kam played for hours as a kid and he got to be very good at it.

Kerry was asked to make us believe something about her we didn't know. We now know that she has written books on the subject - Yoga for Kids.

With Question 3 we also learned that Kerry likes to 'waste' time training and walking and is enjoying the car free atmosphere, of this present coronavirus lockdown.

Answering the bugs and mini-beast question - Kam explained how he had travelled a lot in Jungle type areas and the bugs and beasts like millipedes and centipedes are the most repellent to him.

Kam is not the greatest singer and in his next question - about doing Karaoke he told us about the time he wanted to start a New Year being bold - with disastrous results.

Kerry answered her 4th question with an account of a road trip she made from Virginia to Maine - 13 hours, with scenery breaks, but without planning where to stay on route.

Kerry's question 5, was about her best boss who she named Liza; for the strict attention to detail and tough training, who she now sees was a critical friend and mentor.

Kam also took the best boss question and used it to pay homage to all the bosses who took a youth with problems and showed him the strong fundamentals of how things should be done.

What are the FUNKQUEST rules?

FunkQuest is a fun interactive online game that features five rounds. Each player selects the icon which most tweaks their interest.  Each Funky icon has a Funky question.
The question shown may or may not be related to the icon.

SO potential Funksters have to think on their feet. The winner is decided by the audience and goes through to the next round.

What's so good about FUNKQUEST ?

Funky Thinkers know that IDEAS only come from free-flowing CONVERSATION.
Listening (without prejudice) to new ideas and speakers from outside your usual network truly qualifies as FUNKY.
Each question has a strict time limit. So no multi-headed long and complicated self indulgent stories to endure.  Just short punchy bite-sized truly Funky ideas, as we GET THE FUNK OUT!

VOTE for your favourite FUNKSTER to go through by tweeting...

We know that not everyone has a twitter account. The Funky Thinkers adjudication team will take account of comments left on this blog also in deciding who goes through to the quarter final.
