Week Clue
1 "I wanted to become the Octopus because eight is a lucky number and I think I'm a lucky guy. I reached success at a very young age. I felt like I had it all. And all I can do is smile. But everyone took me smiling as me not being serious. People wanted me out, and I fell. And when you're this big and you fall, you fall pretty hard. In order to get a fresh start, I had to learn to let go of my ego. But I told you, I'm a lucky guy."
