The Law - July 23

Last time, Clay Sellers dropped out with $100,000, but will our next player's wild ways cost him the big money?

He's a 42-year-old head attorney for Cal State who went to Horace Mann Elementary, VICTOR KING! Let's hope he doesn't sue the kids if he gets the questions wrong.

First up to help is Spencer, starting at the left. Let's play!

2nd Grade Math $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What is 309 rounded to the nearest hundred?

Spencer is locked. Victor locks in 300. He's right for $1000.

1st Grade Vocabulary $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? The word "stern" refers to the front of a boat.

Victor wishes he was a boat person. He PEEKS at Spencer's paper. Spencer says, "FALSE". Victor thought it was false as well. He's going to play it safe and say true.

In the crowd is Grace (wife) and her sister. Grace thinks that it's false.

... and it costs him his save. Spencer's right!

Next up is Jacob.

4th Grade Science $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The force of attraction between any two objects that have mass is called what?
a) Gravity
b) Friction
c) Fusion

Victor goes with A... and he's right for $5000! $5000 for the new baby.

2nd Grade Spelling $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The names of how many colors in the rainbow spectrum are spelled with only three letters?

At least Victor knows the mnemonic. Red is the only one with three letters. Red.. Orange... Yellow... Green... Blue... Indigo... Violet.

Red turns into one color for $10,000! Remember... Read the question.

Next up to help for the milestone question is Alana, wiping out the first row.

1st Grade Geography $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What state borders South Dakota to the north?

It would be North Dakota. It would be right for $25,000! That money's his for keeps, but let's look at the $50,000 question.

3rd Grade Measurements $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What unit of power is abbreviated by the letter "W"?

It's gotta be the watt... and Victor's gotta be right.

Jacob, in all his wiseacre form, said, "What? A watt?"

Up to help in round 4 is Marki.

3rd Grade Animal Science $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? The Alaskan malamute is a species of fish.

With no more peek or save left, Victor has only one move... COPY. He would've guessed FALSE. He would've been right.

Spencer wrote, "False. It's a dog. My neighbor has 2. They are cool!"

That... counts for nothing. Marki wrote... FALSE! That's $100,000!

But now Victor's flying blind. Let's see how he feels about this next question of his choosing...

4th Grade World Geography $175,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
In terms of area, what is the largest desert in Africa?

He could walk away with the $100,000.... OR he could go for it, risking the...

"Sahara."... Hey, don't answer too quickly. 

Sahara... most famous... most popular... most spacious! That's $175,000!

5th Grade Cultural Studies $300,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The ancient region known as Mesopotamia was bordered by the Euphrates and what other river?

Now think about this... you can answer and risk the $150,000... or you can run with $175,000... But for the love of God think this through carefully.

Victor locks in Tigris... and that's $300,000!

Down to the last question in...

5th Grade World History $500,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The League of Nations was formed at the conclusion of what war?

A shot at the question will cost $275,000.... but you can walk with $300,000.

"World War I." Victor locks it in... and he's right again! Victor's up half a mill... but now comes the business end. The subject for the Million Dollar Question is...


Victor can either take the $500,000 and run... OR go for it. BUT if he decides to see the question, he cannot walk away. Will he put $475,000 at risk for a chance to win another $500,000?

Nope. He doesn't know a thing about health, so he drop out with $500,000.

Here's what the question would've been...

Of the 32 teeth in the typical adult human mouth, how many are bicuspids?

"Dang if I know." Alana said 4. Victor would've guessed 4... They're both wrong.

Correct answer: 8.

And hey, at half a mill, he can afford not to be smarter than a 5th grader...

Hey, guess what? School's out for the summer! We'll see you in the fall for more classroom antics here at Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader Elementary... home of the fighting Rednecks. See you soon!
