We got 23 great questions that tested how well I know V I and sent me back to some of my own books for the answers. Choosing a winner was tough. We weren’t looking for some unquantifiable “best” question, but one that made us laugh or sent us to the archives or made us see V I through a different lens.
First place goes to:
Who has been attacked more — Mr. Contreras or all of V I’s lovers combined?
Submitted by JoAnn Welsh
First runner up:
In Boom Boom’s will he gave VI money but requested that she not spend it all on what?
Submitted by Genny Winne
