Episode 6 (or "Family Care")
October 30

Previously on Pay it Off, Elgin Tucker, a teacher from Macon, Georgia, amassed $4,500. He's now two steps away from a possible grand total of $25,000. Can Elgin progress further into possibly paying off his debt? Let's find out.
4TH GAME: Fab 5ive
Elgin is presented a list of 10 activities...
He has to pick the five of them that are on the list of what burns them the most calories per hour.
Swimming (Right) [1/5]
Dancing (Right) [2/5]
Tennis (Right) [3/5]
Yoga (Wrong)
Skiing (Right) [4/5]
Golf (Right) [5/5]
Elgin almost makes a clean sweep, but he still raises his bank balance to $7,000.
5TH GAME: Piece Out
Tonight Elgin will play this game for not only an extra three large in cash, but also an electric bicycle and an iPod Nano.
1) Formerly endorsed by Bill Cosby, about 300 million boxes of what are sold yearly in the U.S.?
Rice-A-Roni/Wheaties/JELL-O/Cracker Jack
JELL-O (Right)
2) If rapper Flo Rida wants to admire apple bottoms in his home state of Florida, which beach could he go to?
Myrtle Beach/South Beach/Jones Beach/Doheny Beach
South Beach (Right)
3) Which TV show featured Dennis Haysbert as a black U.S. President way before it was cool?
"24"/"Girlfriends"/"Baldwin Hills"/"The Game"
"24" (Right)
4) The name of which of the 7 Deadly Sins is also the term for a group of lions?
Pride (Right)
5) What African-American playwright won two Pulitzer prizes for the plays "Fences" and "The Piano Lesson"?
Lorraine Hansberry/August Wilson/Tyler Perry/Langston Hughes
August Wilson (Right)
Elgin sweeps the queries and gets to see five pieces of a picture of a "thing". He guesses the Eiffel Tower and is...correct!
Elgin is now $10,000 richer and is on his way to an extra $15,000.
BONUS GAME: Back in the Black
Base: Number of Little Pigs who fought off Big Bad Wolf
The base number is 3.
$500 - # of digits in a Social Security number
More (9, Right)
$1,000 - Acres of land the White House grounds
Less (18, Wrong)
Elgin loses the half-grand in boney money, but he still walks away with $10,000 in bill-paying money, an electric bicycle, and an iPod Nano.
Exit one contestant, enter another who's hopefully ready to potentially rake in the dough. Cheryl Davis, a contract administrator who had just recently started a staffing business. She has brought her oldest sister, Connie, who is sitting in the audience and is also her bailout partner.
1ST GAME: Whodunnit?
The subjects involved this time out are Rapper Eve and The Bible's Eve.
*Who "Gotta Man" the moment she opened her eyes?
The Bible's Eve (Right) [1/3]
*Who might have said, "Let me blow ya mind" when she was naked with her man Adam?
Rapper Eve (Wrong, The Bible's Eve)
*Who successfully entered a man's world by being the first female in the Ruff Ryders crew?
Rapper Eve (Right) [2/3]
*Who took a bite of the Big Apple when she appeared on "TRL"?
Rapper Eve (Right) [3/3]
$1,000 is now in her posession, but she's got a long way to go.
2ND GAME: Black Sheep
Destiny's Child/TLC/Arrested Development
*Which musical group was NOT formed in Atlanta?
Destiny's Child (Right) [1/3]
Their Own Movie Theater/Their Own Basketball Court/Their Own Day Spa
*The President and First Lady do NOT have what luxury at the White House?
Their Own Day Spa (Right) [2/3]
Halle Berry/Vanessa Williams/Vivica A. Fox
*Which of the following beauties is NOT a beauty contest winner?
Vivica A. Fox (Right) [3/3]
Cheryl is now the proud owner of $2,500, but surely she can do better than that.
3RD GAME: Don't Blink
After Cheryl watches a clip from a music video, she answers the following...
*What does the neon sign over the artist's shoulder say?
Dance (Wrong, Park or Par)
*On which arm is the artist wearing bracelets?
Right (Right) [1/3]
*What is playing in the video above the artist's head?
Lightning (Right) [2/3]
*What is the letter on the dancer's jacket?
G (Wrong, R)
It all comes down to this final question.
*Name the song?
"Something to do with the hands being up in the air?" (Wrong, "Pon De Replay")
Cheryl now sings her swan song as she's finished, leaving with $2.5K. Hopefully better things will be on the horizon for her.
And belive it or not, we've got time for another contestant who is hoping to get out of the red. David Wilson is a financial services representative from Southfield, Michigan who plans to open up his barbershop. David's buddy, Nick, is joining him in the audience as his bailout partner.
1ST GAME: Whodunnit?
The subjects this time out are the Harlem Globetrotters and the Harlem Renaissance.
*Langston Hughes is associated with what group?
The Harlem Renaissance (Right) [1/3]
*Pope John Paul II was made an honorary member of what group?
The Harlem Globetrotters (Right) [2/3]
*What group was NOT actually started in Harlem?
The Harlem Globetrotters (Right) [3/3]
A clean sweep nets David a single grand, but he has just got started on his journey towards a possible 25K
2ND GAME: Black Sheep
Adolf Hitler/Joseph Stalin/Tiger Woods
*Who was NOT named Time Magazine's 'Man of the Year'?
Adolf Hitler (Wrong, Tiger Woods)
*Which country was NOT an enemy of the United States during World War II?

David is doing a fantastic show and is now up to $2,500.
3RD GAME: Don't Blink
After David watches a video clip, he answers these...
*Who is she talking to?
Her dog. (Right) [1/3]
*What kind of car was she driving?
Lamborghini (Wrong, Ferrari)
*What numbers are on the interstate signs?
75 & 85 (Right) [2/3]
*What color are the cushions on the machine Keyshia is using?
Black (Wrong, Red)
*What does the trainer want her to think about?
David calls on his bailout, Nick. He swears the trainer said "butt". David goes with Nick on that response and is...correct! He is now up to $4,500.
4TH GAME: Fab 5ive
David is shown a list of ten performers...
Stevie Wonder
Tina Turner
James Brown
Smokey Robinson
Fats Domino
Bob Marley
Michael Jackson
Ray Charles
Chuck Berry
Little Richard
He has to pick five of them that are the first inductees of the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame.
Chuck Berry (Right) [1/5]
Ray Charles (Right) [2/5]
Stevie Wonder (Wrong)
James Brown (Right) [3/5]
Bob Marley (Wrong)
Michael Jackson (Wrong)
Had David picked Fats Domino and Little Richard, he would have been one step away from the bonus game. But sadly, David will have to settle for $4,500.
And sadly, we're out of time until next week when more contestants will try to pay off their bills by playing Pay it Off.
