The countdown begins to the syndicated version of 5th Grader with the man that many folks know as Superman, but first, a realtor will try to close the deal for $1 million.

First, a 29-year-old realtor who graduated from Cactus Elementary in Palmdale, CA, SHOMARI JENNINGS. He's also a funky dancer, as demonstrated by his Michael Jacksonesque moves. He gets it from his mother. He calls himself "Money Man", and to prove this point, he and his entourage is wearing green.
