Episode 2.12: Celebrity 5th Grader 2
November 8

Last week in the classroom, Clay Aiken managed to take away $300,000 for his charity, while Regis Philbin took $175,000.

Next up on the hit parade of celebrity McDimwits is... a 39-year-old professional skateboarder who attended Tierrasanta Elementary, please say hello to the man who took the aerial vert and turned it into a business empire... TONY HAWK! He says he was a pretty good student until he got to high school. He thought that skating was on the hierarchy of coolness below nerds... My how times have changed.

He'll be playing for the Tony Hawk Foundation, supporting public skate parks in low-income areas.

We start it off with the one who has wheels strapped to his sneakers... Cody. Tony Hawk can nail a 900, but is he smarter than a 5th Grader?

2nd Grade US Geography $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Cuba is geographically closest to what US state?

He goes with Florida... good for $1000.

1st Grade Grammar $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? There are no adjectives in the following sentence:
"Sierra boiled the spaghetti in a black pot."

He was never good with sentence structure, but he knows what an adjective is. He locks in FALSE. And that's right for another $2000!

Tony's favorite teacher was Mrs. Luisiak, who told him to do what he loved. And she's here telling him to do it again today. Teachers really know what they are talking about. She brought along some home movies of Tony in grade school doing his thing. See, he was amazing even then. Also cheering on Tony is his wife Lhotse.

Cody goes back to the class, while Mackenzie.

1st Grade Measurements $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many seconds are in half a minute?

Tony knows it's 30 seconds. He's right for $5000. .

2nd Grade Animal Science $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? All crocodiles are herbivores.

Rough terrain. Jeff explains the cheats. Tony doesn't know this one... His instinct says no. He wants to say false, but he'll PEEK just to make sure.

Mackenzie said FALSE. Now that's what Tony thought. He could go with that or he could play strategy.

He chooses to go with Mackenzie's answer and save his save for later.... Good call. He's got $10,000.

Next is the milestone question. Sierra gets the call-up. She likes the third grade questions...

3rd Grade Cultural Studies $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What is the official language of Brazil?

A good friend of Tony's, Bob Burnquist, is half American, half Brazilian. He speaks fluent Portuguese. He answers with that.

He's locked at $25,000!

Freeball time. Out of respect for Sierra, of course.

3rd Grade World History $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
In ancient Greece, how often were the Olympic Games held?
a) Every year
b) Every four years
c) Every ten years

Tony doesn't think that back in Ancient Greece they had Winter Games. Tony tries to use strategy, but he thinks that B is right, continuing in that tradition.

He goes with his gut and says B.

Teacher says she can support Tony.

Sierra says... B. She cannot save Tony. He doesn't need to be saved. He's got the money.

We're down to two classmates... Here comes the one that likes to be picked last. Nathan: "He's tall."

4th Grade Math $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many factors does the number 121 have?

Tony does some sort of mental... He does have a copy and a save. Tony wants to say that 121 is prime. He hopes Nathan saves him.

He locks in 2. 121 and 1 are two OF the factors. Tony is not right.

Classmates... well, one of them gets it. Mackenzie said 3. That's a right answer. The three factors... 1, 11, and 121.

Nathan needs to say 3. Nathan said... 3! SAVED!

Tony says he's dedicating a skate park to him.

Next up... Classroom Club question...

4th Grade World Geography $175,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
CLASSROOM CLUB QUESTION from Miles from Sierra Canyon School
The country of Estonia is located on which continent?

Miles' school is getting a computer. You're getting to if your kid has a question. Tony's getting this question...

Tony has never been to Estonia. He's tempted to drop out. He wants to say Europe. He would hate to play it safe, so he's copying the answer.

Correct answer WAS Europe.

Sierra said Africa. She and Nathan disagree.

Nathan said Europe! He's got $175,000!

The bad news... it's just Tony and the fifth grade all the way to the million.

5th Grade Literature $300,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The poem "Paul Revere's Ride" was written by what 19th Century author?

Tony can walk with $175,000. He does the Vegas hand motion for "I'm done." He's dropping out with $175,000 for the Tony Hawk Foundation.

Correct answer: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Now all he has to do is... "Hey hey, I'm Tony Hawk, and there's no WAY I'm smarter than a 5th grader."

Oh, and Nathan gets the game board for his hard work. Not too bad for Mini-Gordon, isn't it?

Next, another star pupil enters the class.
