Theories

  1. AHL should be removed/replaced in judges' names.
  2. Numbers 0-7 appear in second digit of score (implies sort). First implies index /wrt judges' answer.
  3. Maybe anagrams involving names-AHL and answers.
    1. TEACH+D = DETACH
    2. TEACH+S = CHEATS/SACHET/CHASTE
    3. TEACH+KO = HOTCAKE
  4. "misdirection" and "minor trickery" seem to indicate something magic related.
  5. Anagrams:
    1. TEACH -> CHEAT
    2. MEDUSA -> AMUSED
    3. OPUS -> SOUP
  6. Using the sorted by profession list, and applying the first digit as an index into the name, you get "ELLAMELA"
  7. First letters of profession read: "CANE AS A C"
  8. Synonyms of words. Maybe they have to be similar to the judge's name. Or the first number indicates number of letters.
    1. TEACH -> MENTOR
    2. BEEPBEEP -> HONK
    3. MEDUSA -> GORGON
    4. OPUS -> WORK
    5. QUEEN -> HRH
    6. ELEVENTH HOUR -> LAST MINUTE
  9. Possible replacement rules for AHL.
    1. Have to use letters from corresponding answer.
    2. Have to use subsequence from corresponding answer.
    3. For KAHLO - KENO, KIMONO, KOKOMO, KILIMANJARO, KAZOO, KANGAROO
    4. For PAHLAVI - PECCAVI
