"Episode 2" -
Last week, bouncer Brian DeCato took
the Mob for $135,000. The 42 survivors moved onto another game
with 58 new Mobsters against new challenger Christine Tarbet
from Youngstown, OH. So far, Christine has answered seven
question and built up a bank of $87,600. Still in the mob...
- Four valedictorians. Three of them ended up getting an
F in Quiz Show 101.
- 74-time Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings. Again,
With question eight coming, it's
one... versus 39!
Rome & Gravenstein are what?
a) Varieties of apples
b) Nobel Prize winners
c) The law firm on "Boston Legal"
The mob is locked. Christine can
still ask for help twice. She's 95% sure of apples... She goes
for it... and before we find out if she's right or not, we find
out that she will knock out 19 if she's right. Is she right?
YES! That's another $114,000!
That brings her total of $201,600. But is that walking money?
Does Christine take the money... or the Mob? Everyone's chanting
"Mob! Mob! Mob!", but Christine doesn't want to keep going.
She's taking the money. So Christine Tarbet is $201,600 richer.
Next up, Brooklyn in the house in
the form of AARON SANDERLAND. He's a new father. Can he win
money for baby? He'll have to get past a Mob that includes...
- Three brain surgeons.
They've got the tools and the know-how, and they're ready to
- Seven body builders. They want to bench press your bank
- Nine LA Clippers Spirit Girls. They're looking to be on
the winning side for a change (C-Note: apologies to the Clippers
fan reading this)
- 74-time Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings. Again,
Aaron's ready. Mob's ready. It's
One... versus 100!
Which of these does not have a circular shape?
a) The Target store logo
b) A Wendy's hamburger patty
c) A Playstation 2 video game
Aaron says B. He's right. He
knocks out... 15, including three bodybuilders. That's $1500.
Aaron plays on.
George W. Bush's current Secretary of State?
a) An African-American
b) An Asian-American
c) A Mexican-American
Aaron goes with A. He's right
again. Dr. Condoleezza Rice knocks out three more, giving Aaron
$3000. Aaron takes the Mob.
porcini, morel and chanterelle?
a) Red wines
Aaron's wife is a gourmet. He
goes with B. He's right. And how many are wrong? Twenty-four!
That brings him to $27,000. Aaron's going... for the Mob!
Based on their profession, what item in the house would
the Super Mario Bros. best be able to fix?
a) The furnace
b) The microwave
c) The toilet
Ken's just laughing right now.
With the theme song in his head now, Aaron says C... He's right!
And who gets flushed by the video game plumbers? Four people,
giving Aaron another $8000, a grand total of $35,000. That's
real. Will he take it, or will he take another question?
He takes the Mob! Next
what little girl became known as "Baby Jessica" after
spending 58 hours in an abandoned well?
a) Jessica McClure
b) Jessica Lynch
c) Jessica Sierra
Aaron needs help. He asks the
Mob. He wants to know more about B, Jessica Lynch. Only four
said the same. Rebecca, #42, an outdoor educator, saying that it
was a hot topic because her sister's name is Jessica.
Aaron needs more help. Remember,
a Mob member must be truthful about the answer given, but may be
deceptive about why they chose it. Again, Rebecca shows up. And
with her, #50, Kristin, who says A, Jessica McClure, saying it
was "familiar" to her. That rules out C.
Aaron agrees with Rebecca...
Their guess.. B. Correct.... A. Aaron leaves with nothing, but
the 49 Mobsters who got it right split the $35,000! And they get
to come back for another game!
Next player from Las Vegas is
CHAZZ HALE. He feels primed and ready. He builds satellites and
thinks that it's good to think big. He'll have to think big if
he's going to face this next Mob, which features...
- 10 Mensa members. Put
their IQs together, and you'd have a pretty darn impressive
score for this game.
- Six grandmothers. Don't be fooled by their sweet old
faces; these ladies are all about business.
- 74-time Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings. The one
person who's been here since the beginning. No further
Chazz is ready... The Mob is
ready... It's One... versus 100!
If Cuba Gooding Jr. said "Show me the Armani", whose
clothes would he want to see?
a) A French designer
b) An Italian designer
c) A Chinese designer
Chazz knows it. He picks B. He's
right. He knocks out... one person. Will he take $100 or another
question. The money... or the Mob? He goes with the Mob.
Orleans celebration occurs immediately before the start of
a) Big Wednesday
b) Good Friday
c) Fat Tuesday
Chazz knows that Mardi Gras was
"Fat Tuesday", so C must be right... It is. The party's over for
seven Mobsters, giving Chazz a bankroll of $3600. And he
It's one... versus 92!
In Dr. Seuss' classic tale, who was the Who in Who-ville
who caught the Grinch stealing Christmas?
a) Baby Boo Who
b) Peggy Sue Who
c) Cindy Lou Who
Chazz saw the Grinch steal
Christmas every year, and every year, Christmas was saved by
C... He's right! Who got the wrong Who? That would be 13 Whos
(including two grandmothers) for $13,000, giving him $16,600.
Questions are getting harder, and
the Mob's getting smarter, but Chazz plays on.
is the number "one" space on a standard roulette wheel?
With apologies to the state of
Nevada, Chazz asks for help. He asks for more info on A. How
many people answered that? Forty-two. He takes #76, Eric Rico.
He thinks the odds are red and the evens are black. (C-Note:
That would be wrong.). He goes with A... in the majority. And
he's right! Who wasn't right? Thirty-seven people... including
Chazz knocks out Ken Jennings!
Down goes Jennings! Down goes Jennings!
He's got a total of $90,600 now.
"I went 'B'!"
Okay... Out you go.
Question, the money or the Mob?
He's feeling the love right now, thinking he just beat the guy
that beat everyone else. He goes on. It's One... versus 42!
At a reunion of celebrity brothers, whose table would
need the most place settings?
a) The Baldwin Brothers
b) The Wayans Brothers
c) The Osmond Brothers
"I think I'm in trouble." He has
a hunch, but he needs help. First, #44, Mensa member Darren
Essman. He thinks A. He thought about C, but thought it was a
trick. Next, #64, brain surgeon Debbie chose C. That eliminates
B. He knows Donny... and he knows that there are more Osmonds
than there are Baldwins. That's C... and that's right! He picks
off 23 for $69,000, giving him $159,600. Will he take the
money... or the Mob?
The Mob wants him to play on,
obviously. With 19 Mobsters still left... Chazz takes the money
The remaining 19 Mobsters will
take on a new challenger next show. See you then.
