January 25

Last time, a former beauty queen and a graphics designer tried to go for the million. Both ended up with a decent $100,000 each.

Next on a special Sunday edition of 5th Grader (because Hole in the Wall fell through a hole in the ground) is a 29-year-old gym manager who attended Welsh Elementary in Louisiana... It's CODY McCOWN!

And Cody starts his million dollar quest with... Cody. The board available to him...

Next up, Olivia for the milestone.

3rd Grade Life Science $25,000 PEEK COPY  
A typical amoeba has how many cells?

He doesn't want to go home with nothing, so he COPIES Olivia's answer... The correct answer is.... ONE. If Olivia has that, he locks in money.
