Episode 2.13: Celebrity 5th Grader 3
November 15

Last week in the classroom, the Hawkman, Tony Hawk, that is, skated in and out with $175,000 for the Tony Hawk Foundation. Tonight, perhaps the queen mum of all brain moments in 2006...

... a 21-year-old singer/songwriter who attended Badin Elementary in Albemarle, NC... American Idol 5's KELLIE PICKLER! She says she was an "okay" student. She prepared for this by playing the home game with fellow Idoler Katharine McPhee. Hey, give her props for trying to study.

Kellie's playing for the American Red Cross and "an organization that helps grandparents raise their grand kids."

"I'll take the blonde." We're starting this stack with Sierra in the back. Kellie may have found out the hard way what calamari is... but is she smarter than a 5th Grader?

"Hello. My name is Kellie Pickler, and I am not smarter than a 5th grader."

That was quick. Okay, to the game.

1st Grade Animal Science $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE: Roadrunners are birds.

Yeah, that's the same as the beep-beep. She guesses TRUE. Of course it's true!

2nd Grade Foreign Languages $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
"Bonjour" means "good day" in what foreign language?

Kellie gets this from a really cute French guy. She's locked in... Beep-beep, right again.

By the way, the other charity: "The Grandparents Foundation of the AARP". Kellie's most embarrassing moment in school: cutting one in 2nd grade.

Hopefully Olivia will cut it in round 2.

1st Grade Spelling $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many times does the letter "E" appear in the following word?

The word is... "Watermelon."

Olivia locks in. Kellie spells it out correctly. She tries two... and she's right!

Before we get the next question, we get a feed from the mayor of Albemarle.

2nd Grade Music $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
CLASSROOM CLUB QUESTION from Morgan from Heritage School
The piccolo is a member of what musical family?
a) Woodwind
b) Strings
c) Percussion

First up, a computer lab is heading to Heritage School courtesy of Fox and 5th Grader.

"Oh God." Olivia is in. Kellie doesn't know this one. She wants to go with B or C... because "percussion" and "piccolo" both begin with a P. She goes with it... Not even close. It's A, woodwind, a small flute.

So the only way she can play on is if Olivia wrote A. She wrote... "A: Woodwind!" SAVED!

Okay, time for the milestone question... and it's time for Mini-Gordon. Nathan, let's do this.

3rd Grade World Geography $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Budapest is the capital of what European country?

She thought Europe was a country. She copies Nathan's answer. She would've said France. Sorry. Not even close. Correct: Hungary.

Nathan... not smiling... he said "Hungary!" He's got her the money. "He tricked me." No offense, Kellie, but that's not even hard.

3rd Grade US History $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Which of the following people was a US President?
a) Johns Hopkins
b) Franklin Pierce
c) Brigham Young

"I feel like an idiot." She thinks it's Franklin Pierce... "'cause I have my ears pierced. My last name starts with P. I have an E, and R, and a C, too." Faulty logic, but correct answer.

"I made it farther than the rocket scientist!" How is still a mystery.

Mackenzie is up.

4th Grade Anatomy $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many canine teeth are in a typical adult human mouth?

Insert joke here.

Kellie thinks it's either 2 or 4. She decides to walk with the money, leaving the peek on the table.

The correct answer... WAS 4. Kellie had it.

So I guess we get to hear it again. "And apparently for some odd reason, I don't know why... but I'm not smarter than a 5th grader."

We return to the civs with a 49-year-old tailor who attended Red Bird Elementary in Madison, OH, ROB CLAWSON.

Rob is playing for... himself. First up to help with that is Sierra.

1st Grade Spelling $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many times does the letter "E" appear in the following word?

The word is "mathematics". Rob is trying to work it out in his head. He decides to COPY real quick.

Rob would've said 2. He would've been going home with nothing. There's only one E. Sierra had better have one to keep playing.

ONCE! That works!

1st Grade Animal Science $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Which is the largest species of cat?
a) Tiger
b) Puma
c) Jaguar

Sierra is locked. Rob goes with tigers, A.

He's got $2000.

Next up, Mackenzie.

2nd Grade World Geography $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The earth's largest rain forest is located on what continent?

Mackenzie was quick.

Rob's sweating. He goes with Africa.

Cody says "South America." Olivia said "South America".  Africa... is not right. Correct: South America.

Mackenzie said... South America! SAVED!

Next question...

He's got $2000.

Next up, Mackenzie.

Rob would've said 2. He would've been going home with nothing. There's only one E. Sierra had better have one to keep playing.

3rd Grade Math $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? The reciprocal of 5/6 is a whole number.

Rob thinks that ... he'll PEEK. Mackenzie said TRUE. Rob goes with it...

They're both wrong. The reciprocal is 6/5, which is 1.2, not a whole number, so Kellie Pickler did better than the tailor. So Rob's going home with nothing.

New student next time.
