Episode 2.7: Graduation Night

Last time, April Kadlack came and went with $25,000, while Josh Arnold started his rise to the top. Right now, he's four questions away from a million. Will the class get him to the big money on this, their last night at Are You Smarter Elementary?

Before we continue, how about a standing O for the AYSTA5G Elementary Class of 2007!

When we last left off, Josh and Jacob were going for broke in...
3rd Grade Cultural Studies $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
In Greek mythology, who was Zeus' wife, also known as Queen of the Gods?
a) Aphrodite
b) Hera
c) Athena

"For the love of Zeus, I hope your wife's name was Aphrodite." Nope. It was B, Hera. The only way he can play on is if Jacob wrote B, or Hera, or something.

Jacob wrote... HERA!

He's got $100,000, but to get $175,000, he's gotta do it on his own.

5th Grade US History $175,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What future US President created the framework for "the Virginia Plan"
that structured our government into three branches?

Thomas Jefferson is popping into Josh's mind.... but he's not sure enough to go for it. Josh drops out with $100,000.

Correct: not Thomas Jefferson. It was James Madison.

And now, the last classmate this class will ever see, a 37-year-old tennis pro from Raleigh Park Elementary in Portland, OR, GREG JOHNSON.

And now for the last time... Jacob is up to help our player.

2nd Grade US Geography $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The New England region does not include which of the following states?
a) Delaware
b) Vermont
c) Connecticut

He rules out B. Greg goes with A, Delaware. He's right for $1000.

Spencer: "What did Della wear?" She wore a New Jersey, duh!

3rd Grade World Geography $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Which of these is not an independent country?
a) Greenland
b) Iceland
c) Sri Lanka

Greg goes with A again. And A is right again for $2000. Greenland is a dependency.

Next up to help is ... last time I get to write this... Spen-CER!

1st Grade Science $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What gemstone is formed inside a mollusk such as oysters?

Gotta be a pearl. Gotta be for $5000.

3rd Grade World History $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? Florence Nightingale, a pioneer of modern nursing, what born in Florence, Italy.

Greg says that it sounds enticing. He says TRUE. Spencer says TRUE.

... and they're both right!

Time for the milestone question, and it's time for Kyle's final walk to the podium.

2nd Grade Health $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Which of the five senses is most directly related to the olfactory system?

Greg whittles it down to taste and hearing. He goes with hearing. No joy... It's smell.

Kyle needs to save him in order for us to go on. "I don't smell!" No, you just look like you do. Kyle wrote... smell! Greg has $25,000!

Now let's go for $50,000.

4th Grade Astronomy $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The four main phases of the moon are full, first quarter, last quarter, and what?

Greg is thinking a new moon... and he goes with it. That's right for $50,000!

Next to help out for the last time is Marki. She wants English. The question that Greg is scared to death of... The question we see next.

1st Grade English $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Besides "I", what is the only letter in the English alphabet that you have to dot in its lower-case version?

Was it as scary as you thought? "It is." Greg locks in J without delay. Marki cannot save you. She doesn't have to, because you're right.

4th Grade Art $175,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Pablo Picasso, who developed an artistic style known as cubism, was born in what century?

Marki is locked. Greg takes a PEEK.

Marki said... 1881 = 19th. Greg sees the date and goes with it. Correct answer... 19th!

Saving the best for last, as we bring up Alana for the final time.

5th Grade US History $300,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Thomas Jefferson died on July 4th, 1826. What other US President died on the very same day?

Not a trick question. That's July 4th, 1826.

He's going to drop out with $175,000. He thinks it's George Washington.

... he was wrong! But he still had a copy. Oh well. We're not going to see what Alana wrote, but the correct answer was John Adams.

... and that's all she wrote for the Class of '07. But we have one more surprise in store for them as we fast forward a few weeks. We see the class one more time, having helped grown-ups win $6 million since February.

And since no good deed goes unrewarded, each member of the class is given a $25,000 savings bond for their future to ensure that they're always smarter than a 5th grader.

And before we send them off to Mark Burnett Middle School, we have one more job for them... Find one person each worthy enough to pass along their legacy. If this sounds like an episode of Power Rangers, don't worry... It was. Heh.

You can see the kids at work at, but we won't see the fruits of said search until Thursday night, when we meet the Are You Smarter Class of 2008! See you then!
