FunkQuest – Season 3 – Semi Final 2 – Barb Braendlein v Jean Robor

In this second Semi Final match of FunkQuest Season 3 you will see a familiar face - Barb Braendlein. Barb was also a player in the first semi final of this season and has agreed to be the Sheriff for this second round as a Funkster was unavailable.

Barb chose the first Icon and therefore answered question 1 - 'How fast can you learn something new? This all depends on how much she wants to learn the thing. If she is interested in it she is usually a quick study.

The 'dinosaur' Icon was chosen by Jean for her first question and we found that while not using paper maps she uses 'google maps' religiously, even when going on short journeys. She can get lost quite easily.

Barb revealed that if she was a vegetable she would be a Leek. Filled with tasty goodness on the white end of the root.

Jean said that she often feels foolish when talking and answering questions online. She may often look foolish, to some people, when getting involved with young children and reading books but she doesn't mind that.

Question 3 and Barb chose the 'Swiss Army Knife' icon. If she was to invent something, it would be crutches that do not  make your shoulders hurt. Her recent foot problem has meant, weight movement through hands and shoulders has been painful.

'What word do you always spell wrong?'  led to Jean, Barb and Jonathan discussing words that are easily spelt incorrectly.

Barb next revealed that she' tells herself off' when she realises that she could have said something different after meeting with people she should really know.

Jean chose the 'butterfly' icon and the last time she went swimming was over a year ago. She is not a great swimmer but loves to go to the beach and swim in the sea.

For her final Question Barb had to revel who would be her 'deputy'. She would choose her sister for this role as she seems to be good at everything she does.

The final question of the game was for Jean. She chose the 'giraffe' icon and answered the question 'What is the oddest thing you have seen in public? Her answer shows that  there are lots of odd things to see in this world.

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!
