Episode 3.5 - The Astronaut
October 3

Tonight, we're going where no man has gone before, as a hot-shot pilot... real-life astronaut... and American hero... goes for the Million. We have liftoff on the Space Shuttle 5th Grader!

... with our new classmate, a retired astronaut who has flown on five separate space shuttle missions. From St. Cornelius Elementary in Long Beach, CA, it's ROBERT "HOOT" GIBSON! He's going to try and do what only one person has done before, get to and correctly answer the Million Dollar Question!

1st Grade Life Science 1st Grade Grammar

First up to help out Hoot is Jenna on this for $1000...

1st Grade Grammar $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
A complete sentence must contain at least adjective.

Not necessarily. A sentence doesn't have to have an adjective (like this one). Hoot goes with False, and we're underway.

2nd Grade Spelling $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Spell the following word.

The word is... "misspell." He nails it for $2000. Jenna had that as well.

Next up to help is Bryce.

1st Grade Life Science $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Complete the following analogy: A nose is to smelling, as an ear is to what?
a) Hearing
b) Touching
c) Seeing

He locks in A... He's right for $5000!

Fun fact: Hoot's mom is a 5th Grade teacher

2nd Grade US History $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
CLASSROOM CLUB QUESTION from Ian of Warm Springs Intermediate School
Frontiersman John Chapman famously supplied fruit seeds to Midwest pioneers in the early 1800s, which earned him what two word nickname?.

He goes with logic... Johnny Appleseed is the answer all around, and he's got the money.

Before the milestone, a few words of wisdom from astronaut and statesman John Glenn.

Now to the milestone with Olivia in the cut.

3rd Grade Life Science $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
At certain times of the year, the sun shines 24 hours a day at the South Pole.

He goes with True... and he's got the $25,000!

4th Grade US Geography $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Puget Sound is a body of water bordered by what US state?

He goes with Washington... and that's good to double up.

Helping out for round 4 is Jonathan.

5th Grade Science $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What metallic element is combined with carbon to make basic steel?

He combines iron with carbon... Jonathan thinks it's pretty good... It IS pretty good.

Steering away from art, he's going with...

4th Grade Health $175,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Typically, the human body has how many spleens?

Hoot says that we have at least one of them... and that we don't have symmetrical spleens... so he locks in one. Jenna knows she only has one. And they're all right!

He's been dreading this all game long, and now that Francesca is up with all of his cheats in tow, he might as well...

3rd Grade Art $300,000 PEEK COPY SAVE

What's the name of the artist who painted the following portrait, which was completed in 1506?

That's the Mona Lisa. Hoot knows one of the most famous artists in the world is Michelangelo... but it was Leonardo da Vinci who painted the Mona Lisa... and he's right for $300,000!

One more question...

5th Grade World History $500,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Morse code was named after the man who developed it in the 1830s. What was Mr. Morse's first name?

He still has his cheats left. He can still use them. Or Hoot can walk away with $300,000 for the scholarship fund for the space program... He doesn't. He goes with Samuel....

"Houston, we have a problem here." This from Jim Lovell, famously portrayed by Tom Hanks. The problem is... that he's got $500,000 and we have history as Hoot is the first person to NOT use any of the cheats given to him!

Now it's time for something we've only seen once before this season... the Million Dollar Question! Remember, Hoot can still see the subject and walk away, but once he goes for it, there's no turning back. AND... it's all him.

The category is...

5th Grade Math

After thinking it over...

And watching many people try and fail...

And watching Kathy Cox nail it...


Dude, lock it in... There you go. NOW... for $1,000,000, the question is...

How many common factors do the numbers 28 and 32 have?

His wife is praying.

"They don't have that many common factors. They both had 2 and 4." He locks in... "two common factors."

Jonathan said... 3.

Francesca said... 2.

Bryce said... 5.

Olivia said... 0.

Jenna said... 3 "win".

At least one of them is right. Jenna had the common factors... 1, 2, and 4. She's right. It was three.

FLUNK OUT: $25,000

But still, Hoot is given a hero's dirge with a standing O and $25,000.

Next week, a love letter to game show nation from Mark Burnett, as Ken Jennings tries to prove that his, oh, $3 million in game show winnings was no fluke.
