  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 While Mike is said to be awarded 3 points for task 3 and 3 points for task 4 while Sarah is said to be awarded 3 points for task 3 and 4 points for task 4 in It's Not Your Fault, the scoreboard after the fourth task shows Mike having moved up 7 points for the previous 2 tasks and Sarah moving up by 6 points. No scoreboard was shown after task 3, so it is unclear during which task this clerical error occurred. The scores for the episode and total points for the series both reflect this unexplained change to the points.
