Episode 3.25: Boxers vs. Wrestlers
July 24

Last time, two stars won a combined $50,000. Jack Hanna takes $25,000, and Star Jones takes $25,000... But what happens when two kings of the ring enter the class? It's time for... Boxers vs. Wrestlers! It's time... for ... the tale... of the tape.

Six-time boxing champion of the world
Former host, "The Contender"
Claim to Fame WWE wrestler
Former NFL player

Walker-Jones Elementary in Washington, DC Former School Eliot Elementary in Tulsa, OK

Sugar Ray is first, as he tells of how his brother Roger got him into boxing.

Here's his board...

5th Grade World History 5th Grade Literature
4th Grade US Geography 4th Grade Cultural Studies
3rd Grade Math 3rd Grade Astronomy
2nd Grade Music 2nd Grade Grammar
1st Grade Life Science 1st Grade Social Studies

First up, Jenna and this question...

2nd Grade Grammar $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What word is the verb in the question, "Are you smarter than a 5th grader?"

Sugar Ray tries out "Smarter"... That's not it. Smarter is an adjective. It's a comparative adjective. Split decision in the class... The correct word is "are". Did Jenna have "are" to save him? ... Yes! SAVED!

1st Grade Social Studies $2,000 PEEK COPY  
The US federal holiday of New Year's Day is observed in what month?

January seems to be the right response... and it is!

Next up to help is Bryce. Here to cheer them on are Daniel & Camille, his kids. Next question...

1st Grade Life Science $5,000 PEEK COPY  
Some species of berries are poisonous for humans to eat.

Ray locks in TRUE. He can't be saved.. He doesn't need to. He's right!

2nd Grade Music $10,000 PEEK COPY  
How many strings are on a standard cello?
a) 4
b) 5
c) 6

Ray Charles... Leonard.... can't miss this. He goes with A... boom. And he's right. Boom.

Now to the milestone. Helping him out is Olivia.

3rd Grade Life Science $25,000 PEEK COPY  
NASA space shuttles launch from Cape Canaveral in what US state?
a) Florida
b) California
c) Texas

He thinks quickly... and goes with A... for $25,000.... FLORIDA'S RIGHT!

3rd Grade Math $50,000 PEEK COPY  
Jenna's in a toy store that has three shelves of dolls. There are 8 dolls on the first shelf, 15 dolls on the second shelf and 11 dolls on the last shelf. If Jenna buys two dolls, what is the total number of dolls left on the shelves?

Simple enough... 8 + 11 + 15 - 2... 32? 32! Everyone got that easily.

Next to help Sugar Ray to the six figures is Jonathan.

4th Grade US Geography $100,000 PEEK COPY  
Dormant volcano Mount Hood is located in what US state?

He still has the cheats left... but even so, Sugar Ray has no idea, so he drops out with $50,000.

DROP OUT: $50,000

Just for fun, though... Camille had Oregon. She's RIGHT. Jonathan had... Montana.

Next up to face the quiz is Bill Goldberg. He's WAY taller than his first partner, Olivia... Here's his board...

5th Grade Science 5th Grade Cultural Studies
4th Grade Math 4th Grade English
3rd Grade Social Studies 3rd Grade World Geography
2nd Grade Spelling 2nd Grade Animal Science
1st Grade Measurements 1st Grade Grammar

First question...

1st Grade Grammar $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
All sentences must end with a period.

Bill goes with false after asking a question. Trick question doesn't trick him. That's FALSE.

And that's his wife Wanda egging him on.

2nd Grade Animal Science $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
There are more than 25,000 different species of spiders in the world.

Bill takes a PEEK... And Olivia says... "False". He decides to use strategy and lock in TRUE. Correct answer... is TRUE! Save remains intact. There're more than 40,000 species of spider.

Next up... is David Arquette cheering him on via satellite. After him... Bryce and his question...

1st Grade Measurements $5,000   COPY SAVE
If today is Francesca's 10th birthday, how many years from now will she turn 21?

Bill goes with 11, and he's right to move on...

2nd Grade Spelling $10,000   COPY SAVE
The plural form of the word "quiz" has how many letters?

He thinks it's quizzes... gets from that an "-es"... and locks in six, Q-U-I-Z-E-S. That's.... not right. It's     Q-U-I-Z-Z-E-S. The class had... 7 (Olivia had 6). Bryce needs to say 7 to continue. He said... "6"


But because Bill's a good sport, and you really have to be to be the first celebrity contestant to flunk out with nothing... bill's charity will get $25,000.

Next week, a guy who could presumably be the next host of "Pyramid"... but STILL be known as "Superman".
