Episode 7 (or "More Money")
November 6

It's time for another episode of the show where ridden contestants with debt test their pop culture knoweldge in the hopes they'll pay it off.
First up tonight is 26-year old Max Booker, he's a lawyer who's working pro bono. Sadly, his work isn't paying off his student loans, but maybe this show might. Max's father, Bill and his friends Heather and LaBrea join him from the audience. The latter is also Max's bailout partner who can be used only once during play.
1ST GAME: Black Sheep
Himalaya Mountains/Ganges River/Sahara Dessert
*In India.Arie toured northern India, which would she NOT encounter?
Sahara Desert (Right) [1/3]
"Boys in the Hood"/"Do the Right Thing"/"Higher Learning"
*Which of the following films was NOT directed by John Singleton?
"Do the Right Thing" (Right) [2/3]
Nick Cannon/Regina King/Glady's Knight
*Don't Hate the Player, hate the game. Whose last name is NOT the same as a chess piece?
Nick Cannon (Right) [3/3]
Max gets through the first game with no problem at all. With $1,000 for his efforts, Max is ready to play the next game.
2ND GAME: The HookUp
Tonight, Max has to match the five signs of the Zodiac...
Leo/Aires/Gemini/Taurus/Pisces their symbols.
Leo - Lion (Right)
Aires - Ram (Right)
Gemini - Twins (Right)
Taurus - Bull (Right)
Pisces - Fish (Right)
Max gets the whole thing right to secure a total of $2,500.
3RD GAME: Don't Blink
After Max watches a clip from a video, he answers these queries...
*What's written on the artist's shirt?
I Love It (Right) [1/3]
*What device is the jogger holding?
iPod (Right) [2/3]
*How many girls are dancing by the car?
1 (Right) [3/3]
The other two questions are no longer necessary as Max is now up to $4,500.
4TH GAME: Line Up
Tonight, Max has to put the five books in the order of their publishing date from the oldest to the most recent.
"The Secret"/"Uncle Tom's cabin"/"I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings"/"The Holy Bible"/"The Invisible Man"
Here's how Max did on his first attempt.
1) "The Holy Bible"
2) "Uncle Tom's Cabin"
3) "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings"
4) "The Invisible Man"
5) "The Secret"
The order is...not correct, Max now has two more chances.
1) "The Holy Bible"
2) "Uncle Tom's Cabin"
3) "The Invisible Man"
4) "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings"
5) "The Secret"
And the order this time is...right! Max is not $7,000 richer, but he's also just one step away from playing for additional bonus cash.
5TH GAME: Piece Out

Q (Right)
2) Trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie is credited as a founder of what jazz movement?

Tuskegee, Alabama (Right)
4) Diana Ross received an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of what legendary singer?
Ella Fitzgerald/Marian Anderson/Billie Holiday/Aretha Franklin
Billie Holiday (Right)
5) According to the CIA, about half the population of Haiti practices what religion?
Voodoo (Right)
Max gets five pieces of the puzzle removed. He then guesses it's Elmo, and is correct. Max is now on his way out of debt with $10,000 and has also won a home office package which includes a desk, laptop computer, and a Blackberry mobile device.
The question now is, how much bonus cash will Max get? Let's find out by playing the bonus game.
BONUS GAME: Back in the Black
Max starts with this...
*In a traditional pedicure, how many toes get painted?
The base number is 10.
$500 - # of outfits Michelle Obama wore on Inaguration Day
Less (Right, 2)
$1,000 - The cost of Michael and Janet Jackson's "Scream" video to the nearest million.
Less (Wrong, 7 million)
That expensive video has cost Max half a grand, but that still leaves him with $10,000 and the home office package.
Another contestant ready to knock off their debt is Lorrie Matthews, a freelance journalist from Atlanta. Lorrie's father had been on game shows before, but he passed away some time ago. Lorrie has brought her sister, who is sitting in the audience as her bailout.

*Who went a few rounds with most of his six wives?

Lorrie now has a grand in her hands, but she wants to play some more.

That's an extra $1,500 for Lorrie. So far she has a cash total of $2,500.
3RD GAME: Don't Blink
After Lorrie watches a clip, she answers the following...
*How many times does the car bounce?
3 times (Wrong, Twice)
*What part of her body is the woman getting a tattoo?
Forearm (Right, also would have accepted "her arm") [1/3]
*What does the woman in the card hold over her head?
Lorrie calls on Lisa for help, and she thinks it was a t-shirt. Lorrie agrees with Lisa, but the answer is wrong. The correct answer was "hands".
*How many times do you hear the word Vegas?
3 (Wrong, Once)
Lorrie's road to a potential $25,000 has sadly come to an end, but she leaves the studio with ten percent of that.
And that's it for now, Pay it Off will return next time...if there ever will be one.
