Episode 4
October 23

What's in tonight's contestants wallets? Nothing?! Well, they may have come to the right place to hopefully fill them up with enough cash to pay off their debts. It's time for another episode of Pay it Off.
The first contestant ready to get paid is Miranda who has been in the staffing industry and was recently laid off. She plans to start her own staffing agency and hopefully put the money in her pocket.  Miranda is joined by her hubby Carrington, who's sitting in the audience. He's also going to be her bailout partner this time out.

*Who made $25 for recording his first album, "Laff of the Party"?

Mirana conquers the first game and is off to a good start with $1,000 secured.

Can Miranda stay in play with this last query?
*How many fingers is the artist holding up at the end?
Miranda calls on her hubby for help and he swears he has seen four fingers in the clip. Then Miranda thinks the artist in the video was using both his hands, so she changes to answer to eight. Which turned out to be the right call and is now up to $4,500 worth of cash.
4TH GAME: LineUp
Tonight, Miranda has to put the Roman numerals in order from the smallest to the largest. And those numerals are C, I, X, V, and M.
Miranda is semi-confident about her response, but she is correct and now has seven large in the bank.
5TH GAME: Piece Out
In addition to the extra three grand, Miranda is also playing for a prize package which includes a gift set with hair and beauty products, a kids clothing shopping spree, and a video game system with 10 games.
