The Music Maestra - June 28

Last time, Ben Buys invokes the help of the man upstairs to win $300,000. Tonight, Andy Gala continues his run at the million with Jacob by his side.

1st Grade US Geography $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The US state of Hawaii is located in which ocean?

Andy would love to go to Hawaii. He thinks it's the Pacific Ocean... and he's right for $10,000!

Now comes the milestone. Who'll help him out here? How about, oh... Marki?

2nd Grade Grammar $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The following sentence contains how many possessive pronouns? "Alana let Jacob ride her bike because his had a flat tire."

Andy thinks that it's two, "her" and "his". The rest of the class has two... and everyone's right!

Now for the freebie...

3rd Grade World Geography $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What is the capital of the United Kingdom?

Andy thinks that it's London, but he's not entirely sure. He uses his COPY. The correct answer WAS London. Marki said... Georgia. Not right, but no harm, no foul as he walks away with $25,000.

Next comes a 25-year-old marketing rep who attended Kehrs Mill Elementary in Chesterfield, MO, STEPHANIE WOMBACH. She wanted to be a schoolteacher.

First up to help is Alana. First question is...

1st Grade Animal Science $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? Brown bears can be found in the wild in North America.

Stephanie is confident that it's true. Absolutely correct for $1000.

1st Grade Math $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
A rectangle has how many sides?

Four? Four! That's worth $2000.

Out goes Alana, in comes Spencer.

2nd Grade Astronomy $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? Meteor showers occur when the earth passes through the dust of a comet's tail.

Stephanie guesses true... Spencer said true.. Correct answer is true!

In the crowd tonight are some friends of Stephanie.

3rd Grade Art $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What US city is home to the Metropolitan Museum of Art?

She's pretty sure that the Met is in New York. She rings in with New York.

"NEW YORK CITY?!".... is right for $10,000!

Next up to help is Marki. Her second milestone of the night.

2nd Grade US Geography $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Kyle and Jacob hop in a car in San Francisco, California, and start driving due east. What is the first state they will pass into?

After pleading the fifth about driving without a license, Stephanie locks in with Nevada... CORRECT!

Next is the freeball.

5th Grade Health $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
In the 1950s, Dr. Jonas Salk developed the vaccine that would protect people from what disease?

She thinks the answer is polio... and she's right!

Jacob said... the chicken disease.

New classmate coming. It's Mr. Chicken Disease.

4th Grade Life Science $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
In humans, bone marrow produces which of the following types of blood cells?
a) Red
b) White
c) Both red and white

If there were no choices, Stephanie would've gone with white. She elects to peek at Jacob's paper. Jacob wrote... chicken disease. Kidding. He said C.

She goes with it... Good move, she's got $100,000!

4th Grade World Geography $175,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Sweden's longest land border is with what other land country?

It's either Finland or Norway. She doesn't want to use another cheat, so she locks in Norway... Dead on for $175,000!

Round 5 is up... and so is Kyle.

5th Grade World History $300,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What Egypitan queen was the wife of Roman general Mark Antony?

She locks in Cleopatra without hesitation...

Jeff warned her not to answer too fast. "That leads to mistakes, Jeff," Kyle adds. They're right... but not in this case. She's right!

3rd Grade Cultural Studies $500,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What building is the official London resident of England's Queen Elizabeth II?

Kyle is locked in. She can copy off of Kyle's paper... or he can save her... OR she can leave with $300,000.

But she's pretty positive that the answer is Buckingham Palace.

Correct answer... is Buckingham Palace! She's got $500,000!

Now comes the serious stuff. We are at the crossroads. The copy... is gone. The save... is gone. The Million Dollar Question category is...

5th Grade MUSIC.

Does she know enough about music to risk $475,000 for a chance at a million?

"Jeff, I can't do it." She drops out with $500,000. She doesn't want to see what the question... Okay, she does.

The question was...
In the 1720s, what man composed a series of violin concertos known as "The Four Seasons"?

"Oh my God..." She knew it. It was Vivaldi. She would've been the first millionaire on this show. But she does have $500,000

New student next time.
