  10. At what point do you declare victory? I know I'm stumped. He looks like a wealthy architect or engineer, but that's not getting me anywhere.

  11. It is not Jesse James.

    I declare victory if no one has gotten in by 7:00 AM Sunday Morning. You have 24 hours to figure out who it is from the time the contest starts.

  13. It is not Nevin
    It is not Drake.

    Looks like this is not as easy as Harriet Tubman!
