Episode 2.14
November 29

Last week in the classroom, Kellie Pickler proved to the world what we've already known... that she's not smarter than a 5th Grader. Still, she did better than the civilian player who went after her, as he went home with nothing.

Tonight, we start with a 21-year-old college student from UCSD who attended Wagon Wheel Elementary, TYLER VAN BUREN. He's a biochem major and a member of Pi Kappa Alpha. "One could say we are all like meatheads. We like to work out." That is poised to change, because not only will Tyler get a shot to cheat off of our class... but also his class of Pikes (Russ, Alan, Nick, John, and Greg).

We start this game with the closer, Nathan.

1st Grade Measurements $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
If you're standing on the Equator, in what basic compass direction would you look in order to watch the sun rise?

Tyler locks in east. That's right for $1000. (Nathan had the same.)

Nick said... North.

1st Grade Animal Science $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE or FALSE: A camel's hump is primarily used to hold water.

Tyler says... TRUE. Everyone said TRUE. Everyone's WRONG. It primarily holds fat. The only way to stay in the game is if Nathan said FALSE.

Nathan said... FALSE! SAVED!

New classmate from our group of 10... it's Alan from the Pikes. Round 2.

2nd Grade Social Studies $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
In the patriotic song, "America," what four words follow the opening lyrics, "My country 'tis of thee"?

Luckily Tyler doesn't have to sing it. He does anyway. "Sweet land of liberty." He locks it in. Alan said... "The beautiful oh gracias."

I don't think you want to be saved by that. Russ said... "Oh glory, my country." Again, not exactly right.

The 5th graders agreed with Tyler... and for good reason. They're all right!

2nd Grade US Geography $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE or FALSE: The state of New Mexico borders the Gulf of Mexico.

Gracias. Believe it or not, Tyler has a 3.6 GPA. He doesn't think it touches, so he goes with FALSE.

Alan said... FALSE. Finally got one right!

Now to the milestone question. Who to pick to help... Olivia!

3rd Grade Math $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
CLASSROOM CLUB QUESTION from Doc of Hermosa Valley School
If 15/35 = n/7, then "n" must be equal to what number?

Doc just won his class a computer lab courtesy of Fox & 5th Grader.

Tyler breaks it down to not-so-simplest terms. He guesses 3. Frat brothers said 3, 3, 3, and SWEET 3. How sweet it is for $25,000!

Upon hearing Nathan yell "Gram-mar, gram-mar, gram-mar..."

3rd Grade Grammar $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What word is the adverb in the following sentence?
"Sierra was so excited to be in Mr. Foxworthy's class because he's a great teacher."

Tyler wants to play it safe. He PEEKS. Olivia said... "so". It's a free question, might as well go for it. He does...

Jeff said... "You have $50,000!"

Now let's double that up with Greg Murphy of the Pikes.

4th Grade Cultural Studies $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Buddhism is a religion which began in what country?

(C-Note: I so know this one).

Tyler thinks that it's either India or China. He pictures the smiling Buddha statue.. He goes with China.

Greg said... China. Fifth graders said "India".

Who's right? Fifth graders or frat boys? Fifth graders. It was India. But Tyler does leave with $25,000.

New classmate is a 23-year-old bank teller from McNair Elementary, ASHLEY McCOHN! She said she was in the honor roll.

Tonight, she'll try to make the honor roll again with Cody.

1st Grade Grammar $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What is the only word that is NOT in the predicate of the following sentence?
"Nathan threw his grammar book at the wall."

Cody is in. Ashley goes with "past tense"... Meaning "threw".

WRONG. Cody needs to have written "Nathan"...

Cody said... "book." So Ashley flunks out with nothing...

BUT all is not lost, because who should show up in Jeff's class but Wayne Brady, host of "Don't Forget the Lyrics!" which airs RIGHT after this show. He extends an invite to Ashley to compete on the show for a second chance at a million. Ashley takes him up on this offer. See how she does... right here!

Meanwhile, the search continues for someone who is smarter than a 5th grader next week.
