You receive: Bummer: You only need to call the prompt() method once, and only inside the loop. Hint: Declare the secret variable before the loop. When you declare secret before the loop you use the prompt method. This will prompt the user twice before the answer is checked. You can fix this by initializing var secret = "" before he loop.
