I am doubtful of the fact that Connor & Jonathan were first on the African Geography Task. That is because of the fact that Web Monkeys can manipulate the promos very well and they can make it seem it's accurately true. Take the example of Brooke and Claire's Watermelon Promo. On airtime, Katie and Rachel were also seen in between those shots, but on the promo, they weren't.
If I were a promo maker of TAR, I would definitely showcase how "deceptively simple" the African Quiz is. By using Phil's introduction and a team that is surely failing the task, it would be done. Connor and Jonathan were good in this, they would fit in. It's either they are indeed first, or the Web Monkeys did their job very well.
BUT, HERE's a question for everyone that may answer everything:
Before Phil explains the task, there was a brief rush of screen change. Can you make out something from this?
My imagination tells me it's Jonathan (the one with the eyeglasses)
