Lakisha's Big Day - February 28

Last time, Seth Finn walked away with $5000 and proved to the world that he is not smarter than a 5th grader. Then Lakisha Livington transferred in and used the class to get her to $2000.

We continue with Lakisha and Alana on...

1st Grade Art $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
When you mix equal amounts of red and yellow paint, what color do you get?

Lakisha has an idea... Orange. That's a lock in... and that's right for $5000!

In the audience is Lakisha's mom (and her identical twin sister).

Next is...

1st Grade Astronomy $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
In astronomy, what star is closest to Earth?

Alana is coasting herself... As is Lakisha. Alana is locked in. The rest of the class is right... Lakisha locks in with the sun...

... and she's right for $10,000!

Time to switch out... This time, it's Jacob. Next question is a milestone, because no matter what happens, if she gets the $25,000 question right, she's leaving with at least that much.

2nd Grade US Geography $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What country has the longest border with the US?

Jacob is locked. Lakisha talks it out... She goes with ... Mexico. Correct answer... Canada. Her only hope is if Jacob wrote Canada...

He wrote "Canada!" The save is gone.

4th Grade Math $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many sides are there on a trapezoid?

Jacob, whose best subject is math, is locked. Lakisha tries to remember what a trapezoid is. She uses her last cheat. Jacob wrote "4". Lakisha, who has a son in the 4th grade... goes with 4... Right!

Lakisha is out of help, so Jacob returns to his desk. "Looks like my work here is done."

Next question...

3rd Grade Reading $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? Fiction books are not assigned numbers in the Dewey Decimal System.

She can cut and run with $50,000 or she can go for the $100,000... She says false...

Classmates wrote... False. And they're all... right for $100,000!


3rd Grade Measurements $175,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many decades are in two millennia?

Lakisha thinks that $100,000 is a lot of money... but she came for $1 million. She says... that she's going to take the money and run. She drops out with $100,000. She would said 20... it was 200.

Oh yeah, and one more thing... "I am not smarter than a 5th grader." But with $100,000, she can afford not to be.

New student tomorrow...
