Episode 2.10

Last time, Jason Ramsey, a certified bonafide GENIUS proved that he MAY have been smarter than a 5th grader, but he was not as courageous as one, as he left the stages of Raleigh with $500,000.

Next up on what is apparently the number one quiz show in the country, Phi Beta Sigma is in the building... in the form of a 20-year-old college stident from Fremont Christian Elementary, CHRIS WASHINGTON. He's a senior at USC (boo). He got a presidential scholarship and a 1390 SAT. But is he smarter than a 5th grader?

We start it off by Sierra helping out.

1st Grade Spelling $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Spell the following word...


"N-E-R-V-O-U-S." R-I-G-H-T for $1000.

And Chris has brought the rest of the Beta Sigmas are in the crowd tonight.

1st Grade Social Studies $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What was the first name of the first US First Lady?

Sierra is locked in. Great... Chris copies her paper.

Everyone had Martha.

The correct answer is Martha. If anything other than Martha is on Sierra's paper, it's game over.

Sierra said... "Martha"!

First two are out of the way. Next up to help is Cody.

2nd Grade English $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? The following sentence is grammatically correct:
"I don't know who's book this is."

Chris can't take his eyes off of "who's", which is supposed to be "whose." So he locks in FALSE.

It's FALSE, and we're up to $5000.

2nd Grade Animal Science $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The chimpanzee's native habitat is on what continent?

Cody is locked in.

Chris is stuck between Asia, Africa, and South America. But TV helps Chris to "Africa". Cody... said the same thing.

Olivia said... "South America (they live in the Amazon)." Wrong. TV also gives Chris $10,000.

Next is the milestone question. Helping out is Nathan.

5th Grade Measurements $25,000 PEEK   SAVE
In the US, how many pounds is a ton?

Chris takes a peek at Nathan's answer. Nathan said... 2000.

"That feels about right." He locks it in.

And he's right! And he can't stop jumping around all over the place! Imagine what happens if he won $25,000 more.

3rd Grade Science $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? Neon is a metal.

Chris takes the freeball on the neon lights on his car. FALSE is his answer, because neon is "something that's emitted."

Neon... is a GAS! He's got $50,000!

Four subjects left. Let's get Mackenzie up here.

3rd Grade World Geography $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Bavaria is a state in what European country?

"I wish I had the slightest clue." Mackenzie did answer quickly. But is it a risk worth taking?

He goes for it, saying Poland.

Poland... is not right. It's Germany. Did Mackenzie write Germany? YES! SAVED!

But now Mackenzie has to go back to her seat because Chris is out of help. If he's going to win $175,000, he'll have to do it on his own.

4th Grade Health $175,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Which are blood vessels in the human body?
a) Tibias
b) Cilia
c) Capillaries

Chris rules out tibias. He locks in C...

And he's right for $175,000!

4th Grade Cultural Studies $300,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What is the official language of Australia?

Chris isn't going to rely on his gut too much... He's dropping out with $175,000. The correct answer, of course, is English... which is what Chris would've gone with.

Next in the class is a woman armed with a secret weapon... a 22-year-old graphics artist from Madrone Elementary, WHITNEY POLLETT! Her secret weapon... a mood ring. Her grandfather invented the mood ring. True story. Olivia knows what a mood ring does... True story. Right now, it's grey (anxious and very nervous). Jeff wants it to be purple.

First up to help out is the one that knew what a mood ring was, Olivia.

1st Grade Spelling $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many consonants are in the following word?


V, W, and L. That's three. Whitney goes with ... two. Not only is she wrong, she misspelled "voul". Olivia said... three! SAVED!

3rd Grade Art $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? Artist Vincent van Gogh, who created the famous painting "Starry Night", was born in France.

Whitney is not 100%. She copies.

Whitney would've guessed TRUE. Wrong again. Correct is FALSE.

Olivia said... FALSE! Saved again!

Next on stage is Sierra.

5th Grade Grammar $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many demonstrative adjectives are in the following sentence?
"That scruffy dog with the short tail chased the multi-colored cat through the tree."

Whitney thinks that it's four. Or three... or one. Whitney peeks. So she's either coming back next time with $5000 or she's going home with nothing.

Sierra said... 3. Whitney agrees.

Demonstrative adjectives are that, this, these, and those.

Correct answer was 1. Whitney flunks out with nothing.

And her mood ring: Green (happy and relaxed).

New player next time.
