  • 8. Attention to Details Jennifer Fregeolle studied her birthday bandana. Then she was blindfolded. Jennifer correctly reported that her bandana contained the words “Happy Birthday.” She missed the hats and presents. Ron then applied some lotion to her right hand and upper lip. Jennifer correctly identified the lotion. Ron then touched her left hand and asked what was on her left hand. On the first try Jennifer said “Nothing.” On her second try Jennifer responded correctly. Jennifer was one of only three people to solve this puzzle on the second try, ever. Most people require many tries and hints.
  • 9. Attention to Details For her next activity, while blindfolded, Jennifer had to figure out what college Jessica went to without looking in the program book or any computer… but she could ask the other participants for help. A member of the audience, Judy Kessler, suggested that Jessica may have had a class ring on. Jennifer quickly rejected this idea… saying Jessica’s ring could not be a class ring… In fact, Jessica’s ring is a class ring from Dartmouth. Jennifer, listen to the team next time… they may be right!!! Pictures above show Jennifer studying Jessica’s ring at the conclusion of the activity.
