She frankly could win the show single-handed. She doesn't need a team! She's amazing!

She's front page news in the Guardian.

She was very quiet for the first half of the show while Manchester built up a big lead, but when she woke up, she just blew the rest of them out of the water. Manchester didn't score another point.

I wouldn't characterize what happened with Corpus Christi in 2009 as cheating. I would call it getting disqualified based on the eligibility rules as there was no mens rea: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/7919830.stm
