Episode 3.9 - Let's Rock!
November 7

Last time, Dave Ellis, a big-time Celtics fan, took the quiz and won $100,000, while Lacreshia Witcher took the quiz and won... well, nothing. Tonight is a special night in the classroom, because we're about to rock this joint forwards and back.

And here to do it is one of the founding members of the legendary rock band KISS... from PS 145 in Jackson Heights, Queens... GENE SIMMONS! Here's a fun fact... He was actually a school teacher in Spanish Harlem before making it big in the music business.

Here's his board.

5th Grade World Geography 5th Grade US History
4th Grade Astronomy 4th Grade Math
3rd Grade Earth Science 3rd Grade World History
2nd Grade US Geography 2nd Grade Vocabulary
1st Grade Life Science 1st Grade Grammar

Up first to help is Jenna. Their first challenge...

1st Grade Grammar $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What word is the adjective in the following sentence?
"Jonathan is happy."

Fun fact: Gene can speak four languages: English, Hungarian, German, and Hebrew. He's studying two more... Japanese and Mandarin Chinese.

He decides to go for it with "happy". Good for $1000.

2nd Grade US Geography $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Which of the following states extends the farthest north?
a) Wyoming
b) Idaho
c) Utah

After drawing a map of the US in his head... and his mouth... Gene guesses A... Not right.

Second guess would be Utah. Also not right.

Jenna said... B! SAVED!

And on the heels of that comes another classmate, Olivia. In the crowd today amongst the KISS Army are his son Nick and his girlfriend Shannon Tweed. Yep. THAT Shannon Tweed.

3rd Grade Social Studies $5,000 PEEK COPY  
The 26th Amendment to the US Constitution states a person must be how many years old to vote in national elections?

Gene wants to go with 21. But instead, he COPIES.

Correct answer is 18... Olivia had... 18!

Gene is playing tonight for Elisabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

5th Grade US History $10,000 PEEK    
The Battle of the Bulge was fought during what war?

Gene knows this one.. It was fought during World War II....

... the family thinks it's World War I...

And Gene's right!

Next to help with the milestone question is Bryce.

3rd Grade World History $25,000 PEEK    
What is the name of the British world leader who appears in the following image?

Bryce is locked. Gene's locked as well with Winston Churchill... GOT IT!

1st Grade Life Science $50,000 PEEK    
The tangerine is a citrus fruit.

Gene goes with TRUE. He's right again.

Going into round four with Francesca now.

2nd Grade Vocabulary $100,000 PEEK    
By definition, how many characters speak during a monologue in a play?

Gene goes with one...

... and we go on with this.

4th Grade Astronomy $175,000 PEEK    
from Noah in Startown Elementary
What is the term for the outermost layer of the sun's atmosphere?
a) Corona
b) Comet
c) Supernova

Gene goes with A...

Francesca had C...

Gene still would've gone with A...

... and Gene's right again!

Time to bring on Jonathan.

4th Grade Math $300,000 PEEK    
Jenna has 62 jellybeans and Bryce has 34. If they each teach half their own jellybeans, how many jellybeans are left?

Simple function at work here. (62/2) + (34/2) = 31 + 17 = 48. Gene commits to that... We know he's right.

5th Grade World Geography $500,000 PEEK    
The Bay of Bengal is part of what ocean?

Jonathan's quick on the draw.

Gene thinks about the Bengal tigers... Then locks in "Indian".

Correct.... Indian! We're playing for a million!

Remember, the 5th Graders are gone... the peek is gone. It's all Gene, but he can see the subject and still drop out.

The subject is...


"That was the farthest a celebrity has ever gotten." This coming from Shannon as Gene said the same thing on their first date. Heh. Gross.

Nick wants to take the money and run. Shannon wants him to go for it.

After Gene fixes his hair, he decides...

"If I was here by myself, no fear. But I know $500,000 is going to do a lot of good." He's dropping out. But just for shiggles, here's the question.

What element is represented by the letter "K" on the Periodic Table?

Gene went with Krypton.... Shannon's right. It was Potassium.

DROP OUT: $500,000

New student next time...
