Another episode of the Million Dollar Money Drop starts with Mandy and Sergeant David Engelbert. They met at his Welcome Back from Iraq Party, dated for three months, and they're now married. They have two beautiful children who miss their dad when he goes away.

As if the show couldn't thank David enough for their services, him and Mandy are given $1,000,000 to play with. Will they become rich or end up flat broke? The seven multiple-choice questions will determine their fate.

QUESTION 1 CATEGORIES: AD SLOGANS/MUSIC

They choose Music.

Q1: Of these four sullables in the song "Do-Re-Mi," which represents the higher tone on the musical scale?
A: So
B: Fa
C: Ll
D: Ti

They put all of the million on D, and they're correct!

QUESTION 2 CATEGORIES: PARADES/COINS

They're going with Coins.

Q2: What U.S. President is on the dime?
A: John F. Kennedy
B: Thomas Jefferson
C: Abraham Lincoln
D: Franklin Roosevelt

They put all of the million on B which is wrong. The correct answer was D. Sadly, Mandy and David end up with no money at all...not even a dime.

The next two players to step up and see what drops are Lana McKissack and Nathan Moore (no relation to me BTW). They've been dating for a year after meeting at a couples game night although they weren't a couple then.

QUESTION 1 CATEGORIES: COCKTAILS/REALITY TV

Lana and Nathan start with a question on Cocktails.

Q1: According to the International Bartenders Association, a screwdriver has the same non-alcoholic ingredient as what other drink?
A: Cosmopolitan
B: Bloody Mary
C: Tequila Sunrise
D: Long Island Iced Tea

They put all of the million on C, and they're correct!

QUESTION 2 CATEGORIES: SHREK/ON THE ROAD

Lana and Nathan want Shrek, and they get a question about it.

Q2: Which Shrek actor fathered a child with a spice girl?
A: The voice of Shrek
B: The voice of Donkey
C: The voice of Puss in Boots
D: The voice of the King

All of the million gets placed on B, and they're right again!

QUESTION 3 CATEGORIES: DISCO/BREAKFAST CEREAL

(as Homer Simpson) Mmmm...breakfast cereal.

Q3: Which of these was never a Lucky Charms marshmallow shape
A: Rabbit's foot
B: Clover
C: Horsehoe
D: Heart

They lose out on 220K with C and D as the wrong answers, but they keep 780K with A as the correct one.

QUESTION 4 CATEGORIES: DOGS/FAST FOOD

Lana and Nathan go with Fast Food.

Q4: Which of these ingredients is not on a McDonald's Big Mac?
A: Lettuce
B: Pickle slices
c: Tomato

A is wrong and 200K is gone, but C lets 580K stay put.

QUESTION 5 CATEGORIES: BOARD GAMES/U.S. GEOGRAPHY

They're going with U.S. Geography.

Q5: How many U.S. States touch the Pacific Ocean?
A: 4
B: 5
C: 6

Lana and Nathan put all of 580K on B, and they're right!

QUESTION 6 CATEGORIES: AD ICONS/YOUTUBE

They get a question about YouTube. Let's if all of 580,000 doesn't fall down the tubes.

Q6: Which music artist was the first to be viewed one billion times on YouTube?
A: Justin Bieber
B: Rihanna
C: Lady Gaga

A is wrong, but C is correct. Lana and Nathan lose 280K, but they make it to the final question with 300K remaining.

QUESTION 7 CATEGORIES: DRIVING/COLLEGE


Will they be driving off with $300,000? We shall see.

Q7: According to a 2007-2008 study by the auto insurance company QPC, who receives more speeding tickets?
A: Men
B: Women

They go with A before being given the final fact that the correct answer also receives more tickets for reckless driving and seatbelt violations. They still stick with A...and they're...correct! Lana and Nathan go home $300,000 richer!

That's it for now, the MDMD will be back on February 1.
