January 23

Last time, we've had one big winner and one flunkout. Tonight, a former beauty queen and a graphics designer try to go for the million.

First up tonight is a 36-year-old former Miss Nevada and current pageant coach who attended Atherton Street School in Las Vegas, NV... JENNIFER JOSEPH! Will we be able to crown her Miss 5th Grader tonight?

First up to assist the coach is Sierra. The board looks like this...

Next up is Mackenzie and...

TRUE or FALSE?
The Great Salt Lake in Utah is a freshwater lake.

One of those moments where the answer is in the question. The Great Salt Lake is NOT a freshwater lake. Jennifer's got it with FALSE for $5000.

How many tusks does a typical adult walrus have?

Jennifer locks in two... and she's right again!

What African country is home to the city of Casablanca?

Here's looking at Nathan's paper. She PEEKS and sees "Morocco". She'll try to have a better chance of winning the 100K by locking in Kenya.

Jennifer has no help and no idea. Time for this beauty to fade with $100,000. She drops out. She would've gone with B... and she would've given back $75,000. All of the class had it right with A.

DROP OUT: $100,000

Next up is a 31-year-old graphics designer who attended San Jose Highly Gifted Magnet School... Welcome TOMMY WALKER! He's got designs on acing the test.
