She lost because she said 'seven swans ARE swimming'. There is no issue with how she said swimming, she said ARE (which did not fit) when it should have be A. She got caught out fair and square!
Uh, no. She said "A" not "are."
Well that's an odd way to pronounce 'A', pronouncing it 'ah' which is easily misheard into 'are'. She said 'ah-swimming' or 'are-swimming', been listening to that segment several times.
