    That was great! I would go shrimping if that was my view too :) My favorite scene was probably the carnival (clue) and ‘Dan Confetti’ lol. Thanks for the chance!

    I loved the Carnivale and when the chef made Dan Cortese eat the green goop from inside the shrimp!

    I love when Marisa was tossing those shrimp in the pan – everytime I try that I throw them all over the place.

    My favorite scene is when they get the paper mache figure which is the (Clue) to go to the Carnevale.
    Gorgeous view of the Mediterranean!

    My favorite part is the shrimp boat outing. How exciting it would be to catch your own dinner!

    My favorite scene was after the Carnivale watching them boating to get shrimp. I have never seen how that was done. Much easier than casting a line!

    The clue answer is “shrimp” and my favorite part is the scenery — love that area of Italia.

    My favorite part was them cooking dinner. The clown was the clue.

    My favorite scene was when Maris Tomei tries to flip the food in the pan. I’ve always wished I could do that ….

    And the clues – the clown – led to carnivale!

    I loved Dan’s encounter with the confetti. :) The paper mache clown was pretty cool too! :)

    My fav scene was the confetti encounter at carnivale! The episodes’s clues led to carnivale and the shrimp boat.

    I loved seeing the floats in the parade! The clues took us to the Carnavale and then to the port to catch shrimp!
