Episode 2.18: Celebrity Show 5
January 17

It's another celebrity show as a beauty queen is put to the test to see if she can reign supreme in our class.

There she is, the current Miss America LAUREN NELSON, a 20-year-old who attended Pioneer Park Elementary in Lawton, OK. Tonight, she's playing for the Miss America Organization for scholarship money.

Some call it repaying student loans, I don't know.

First up to help Lauren tonight is Mackenzie. After Lauren teaches her how to do "the wave", we get into it with...

1st Grade Grammar $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many syllables are in the word "syllable"?

Lauren's confident with three. And she's right for $1000.

1st Grade Animal Science $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? All ladybugs are female.

Fun fact: Lauren has a 3.8 GPA at the University of Central Oklahoma. Lauren's smart. She PEEKS at Mac's paper... "FALSE". She goes with that. She's right for $2000. Ladybugs can be both male and female.

Next up to help is Cody.

2nd Grade US Geography $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Lake Superior borders how many US states?

Fun fact: Lauren was a National Honor Society student. She goes with her COPY. Correct answer is three: Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

Cody said... three! We're moving on...

3rd Grade English $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Which is the homophone of the word "night"?
a) Knight
b) Day
c) Evening

She breaks it down to "homophone" meaning "same sound". She goes with A... Right on for $10,000.

Next up is the milestone question for $25,000. Here to help her out is Olivia. Now, here's a little trivia. Whenever Lauren isn't wearing a crown, she has to wear the Miss America pin. She brought both, one on her head and the other for luck. Olivia gets to wear the pin for this round. Don't know how that'll gel with the Miss America suits, but... whatever.

2nd Grade Social Studies $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What three words begin the Preamble to the US Constitution?

Lauren thinks that she knows this. She's pretty sure it's "We the people"... and it is for the guaranteed $25,000! Let's try doubling that with this..

3rd Grade Vocabulary $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? By definition, cartographers are people are people that study the heart.

Lauren takes the freeball with false. She's right. Cartographers make maps; cardiologists study the heart.

Next up to help get Lauren to the upper echelon is... Sierra.

4th Grade Astronomy $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
More than 99% of the mass of our solar system is contained within what heavenly body?

Lauren has no clue. She decides to go with "the universe". That's a lock-in. That's... wrong. The only way she can continue on is if Sierra said... "the sun". And Nathan (aka Mini-Gordon) had it.

Sierra said... the sun! SAVED!

The good news, we're up to $100,000. The bad news, Lauren is out of help. It's just her to the million.

During the break, Jeff gets pinned from Olivia, while Lauren's mom quizzed her over the phone before the game.

4th Grade Math $175,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What is the greatest common factor of 12 and 36?

Lauren knows this. She goes with 12... She's right!

5th Grade US History $300,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What Revolutionary leader famously uttered the words, "Give me liberty or give me death!" in a speech at the second Virginia Convention?

Does Lauren remember any famous speeches? No. Does she remember the quote? Sorta. She doesn't think Alexander Hamilton is right. And it's way too much to risk, so Miss America 2007 Lauren Nelson... drops out. But she does so with $175,000 for the Miss America Organization.

Lauren would've been wrong with Alexander Hamilton. It was Patrick Henry.

We continue on with a new player, a 37-year-old payroll manager from 99th Street Elementary, ESTHER JACKSON! Her nickname is Little Esther (her mom's also named Esther), but there's nothing little about her, as she's 6'2" barefoot.

The quiz begins anew with Mackenzie in the helper's chair.

1st Grade Grammar $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many singular nouns are in the following sentence?
"Nathan likes to sing country songs."

He does? "I can't sing." Didn't think so. Esther goes through the motions and ends up with one. That's right. It's "Nathan"... who can't sing.

1st Grade World Geography $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What continent lies directly east of Europe?

Esther PEEKs. Mackenzie says... ASIA. Esther was thinking that. She goes with it. They're both right for $2000.

Next up to help is Cody, who gets to meet Esther's daughter, who's going into the 5th grade. She's playing for $5000 on a 2nd grade spelling question... NEXT TIME.
