Episode 2.17
December 20

Last time, Karl Schaub went from zero to $175,000, while Alan Masarky took the class for $50,000.

Next up is a 22-year-old professor from Carl Hankey Elementary, TODD GRECO. As we see his photo from 5th grade... "Sweet mullet." He's also a surfing instructor.

His quest for a million begins with Mackenzie and...

1st Grade Grammar $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE or FALSE? There are exactly two nouns in the following sentence.
"Cody has a goldfish that was born in California."

I count three. Cody, goldfish, and California. Speaking of which, we have a shot of the two class fish, Darnell and Mike. Gee, I wonder who named THOSE. Todd locks in FALSE for $1000.

2nd Grade Measurements $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What is the fewest number of current US coins you'd need to make exactly 99 cents?

Half-dollar... quarter... two dimes... four pennies. Eight is right. Todd goes with nine (two quarters instead of one). Which means that the only way he can continue is if Mackenzie has eight. She has... 8! SAVED!

In attendance, Todd's 2nd grade teacher Mr. Young. Now in attendance for Todd's round 2 is Nathan.

3rd Grade Math $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
If Nathan ate 27 pieces of licorice in six hours, on average how many pieces did he eat per hour?

Fact: Todd was a high-school honors student!

Todd goes with 6 into 27. He locks in 4 1/2... Jeff whispers into Cody's ear... "Todd, you've got $5000!"

4th Grade Science $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Which of the following trees is considered a conifer?
a) Oak
b) Pine
c) Maple

Nathan's quick again. Todd PEEKS. Nathan said... B. Feels great, don't it? Todd goes with it... and feels great for $10,000! Conifers produce seed-bearing cones.

Now for the milestone question. And guess who's back for it... Hi, Olivia!

1st Grade Music $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE or FALSE? A cello is larger in size than a viola.

Todd locks in TRUE... Right for $25,000!

Let's go for double. Mr. Young likes reading...

3rd Grade Reading $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What was the pen name of author Charles Dodgson, who wrote "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"?

Olivia is locked in. Todd has no idea. He COPIES. Correct answer: Lewis Carroll. Class went with that. Olivia... said "Lewis Carrol". He's got $50,000!

But the bad news is from here on out, it's just Todd to the million.

5th Grade US History $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
CLASSROOM CLUB QUESTION from Austin from Lower Lab Elementary School
In 1832, what document written by the US President stated that America was against 'future colonization by any European powers'?"

Lower Lab is getting a computer lab. Todd is getting the heck out of here. The big hint was in the question. It didn't name a president. And the only doctrine I can think of that names a president in that time era was the Monroe Doctrine, an America for Americans.

Next up, a 36-year-old fashion buyer from Julius Wright Elementary in Mobile, AL, JENNY HIRSCH. She was a little less blonde back in the day.

Unlike Sierra, who's really blonde right now. She's up first.

1st Grade Geography $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many US states border another state?

I can count two. So can Sierra. Alaska and Hawaii. Fact: Jenny's Pepperdine GPA was 3.5. She goes with two... and she's right.

1st Grade Anatomy $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What is the name of the joint in the human body that connects the hand to the forearm?

Jenny goes with wrist... Got it for $2000.

Out, Sierra. In... Nathan.

3rd Grade Math $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Cody has three pandas who each eat 42 pounds of bamboo a day. How many pounds of bamboo does he need to feed them all for two days?

Nathan is locked in. Jenny uses her COPY. Let's do the math. Three days... 42 pounds... 126 pounds. That's 252 for two days. She would've gotten it wrong with 352.

Olivia got it right. Doesn't matter. Nathan said... 252!

2nd Grade Measurements $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE or FALSE? The positively charged ends of two magnets will attract each other.

Nathan answers quickly. Jenny... knows this one. FALSE. False is right.

We're up to the milestone question... and Mac's up to help.

5th Grade Literature $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Playwright William Shakespeare was born in what century?

Mackenzie wrote her answer... not that quick, but locked in. Fact: Jenny made the dean's list in college. She knows plays, but not dates. She PEEKS at her answer... "1700s". Jenny was thinking 1800s. She goes with Mackenzie's answer...

They're both wrong. Shakespeare was born in the 15th Century. Jenny flunks out with nothing.

So the search continues next time.
