Last time, Gene Simmons finished the quiz... but didn't go for the million, donating $500,000 to the Elisabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

Celebrity action continues with a substitute 5th Grader... Please welcome Kassidy to the stage, filling in for Olivia.

And now, we need a player. We have an Emmy-award-winning journalist from Brookwood Elementary in Dalton, GA... DEBORAH NORVILLE! Let's see if she has the "inside edition" on how to win this game.

Here's her board.

And not only is Deborah playing for charity, she's playing for the audience. Should she reach the $25,000 level, everyone in the audience will get a copy of the "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" home game for Wii and DS.

But let's start at the start with Jenna and this question.
