Last time on the Power of 10, Megan McDowell won $1000. Tonight, she tries to take the Drew-man for $10,000,000.

Right now, she is four steps from the $10 mill. Here's the first...

$10,000
30 point range
What percentage of married Americans said if their marriage was in trouble, they'd be willing to go into couples therapy?

Her first inkling: 53-83. Steven, her husband, think that it's a pretty good range. Audience goes with that as well. Megan locks in 55-85.

What percentage of Americans think public authorities should distribute free condoms to teenagers?

Megan dials in a guess of 36-56 first. Steve thinks she should go a little bit lower, given the religious (or the free market) base in this country. The audience... 45% peak. So she can lock in her guess or walk with $10,000. Megan locks in 32-52%.

America said... 55%. So close, but Megan is going home with $1000.

Next up, Jordan Schulkin (Brooklyn, NY) is a children's music video director who's worked with "a guy who's on the same label as Raffi". Mike Velardi (Bartonsville, PA) is an electrical inspector. When he checks your wires, there aren't any fires.

$1,000
40 point range
