Love to Interrupt
The DiGeorge Files
It's part reality series, part
game show, as each week seven players take on the challenges
and pressures of each other and of Studio 7's hard-as-nails
format, en route to finding the answer to the question, "When
it comes to money, who can you really trust?"

Episode 6 - August 26
Apparently, the WB has so little faith in the show that
they've pulled not only the Sunday repeats that help
with my recapping, but we won't get to see week seven.
Screw 'em, then, we've still got a show to do, and
someone here is gonna win a BUNCH of money. Let's meet
Boaz Frankel, 22, Portland, Oregon. Just finished
NYU. Wants to donate to hometown.
Cassie Lilly, 21 Greenbelt, MD Not shy about
Jonathan Gabrus, 22, Wantagh, NY
Matt Freitas, 19, Chelmsford, MA. Very
Nicole Cutrufello, 22, Roselle Park, NJ. Nicole
is trying to play up the airhead thing.
Sean Patrick Taylor, 23, Brooklyn, NY. Sean could
have tried out for "The Challengers," he loves current
Stephanie Chu, 21, Atlanta, GA Goes to Columbia.
A note to my fair readers, if the question was answered
correctly, the pertinent information is underlined. If
answered incorrectly, you'll see both the wrong answer,
and the correct one.
ROUND ONE: 2001-2004
5, Boaz: In December 2003, Michael Jackson was
interviewed by Ed Bradley from "60 Minutes".
7, Matt: In 2003, J.K. Rowling became the
wealthiest British woman in show business, surpassing
the Queen. Matt asks Boaz for help. Boaz looks like
Harry Potter? No matter, Boaz says JK, and they're
2, Nicole: On 26-October-2001, the Patriot Act
was signed into law. And I'll still go to the library,
even if the FBI knows what I'm reading. Choke on it,
(?) Jon: David Gest filed a lawsuit against wife Liza
4, Stephanie: Royston Langdon from the British band 'Spacehog'
married whom in 2003?
Stephanie's Wrong Answer: Natalie Portman
Correct Answer: Liv Tyler
Well, I can excuse that wrong answer. Too bad it still
3: SP: September 2003, Seattle, Washington held a
recreation of the Boston Tea Party to protest an
(T-Note: I think I'm the only person on the planet to
have Starbucks stock, but who won't drink any of their
products. No matter...)
Cassie: Dean Kamon invented what two-wheeled vehicle in
Cassie asks Sean Patrick. SP is not giving any help.
Cassie: Mobile Scooter
Right: Segway Human Transporter, not enough information.
It's time for a vote. Who stands in your way of fiscal
Jon votes to boot Cassie.
Sean Patrick votes to boot Cassie for the Segway
Nicole votes to boot Cassie, over the dumb blonde
stereotyping. Karma's a bitch, ain't it. Bye, Cass.
And then there were six.
ROUND TWO: 2004.
By the way, this is a single elimination round, unlike
before. Confused? Yeah, me too. Onward.
Jon: Bush said the use of steroids is dangerous
and sends the wrong message to kids. Jon asks Sean
Patrick. But it was a waste. OK, Bush has done one
thing I approve of.
Nicole: Don King urged African Americans to vote
Stephanie: Carb Karma was released by Ben and Jerry's.
Sean Patrick: Brad Pitt portrayed whom in "Troy"?
Sean Patrick asks Boaz. Boaz doesn't know, and he's sad,
because there's no vote to save you now...
Sean Patrick's Wrong Answer: Odysseus
Correct Answer: Achilles
Sean Patrick is out. Aw, shucks.
ROUND THREE: Last Month. We're back to the vote
for the losers.
Nicole: 1 July, Sony plans to rival Apple's iPod.
Stephanie: 20 July, Jenna Bush stuck out her
tongue to the press at a St. Louis airport.
Jon: 7 July, John McEnroe got his own talk show.
Jon, you may answer the question...
Matt: 6 July, Angelina Jolie was offered
Cambodian citizenship because of her humanitarian
Boaz: 7, July, John Kerry says "We've got a better sense
of what's happening to America and we've got better..."
Boaz likes Robo-Kiernan's hair, and hair is correct.
Stephanie: 7 July, Ed McMahon joined ALF on the
premiere of a TV Land talk show. Stephanie answered,
"Elmo." Stephanie is off to the Block, ring in tow.
Jon: 8 July, which rock star underwent heart surgery for
a blocked artery?
Jon's Obviously Wrong Answer: Elton John
Correct Answer: David Bowie
Nicole can't vote off another girl. One for Jon.
Boaz opts to kick off the person who won't lay the smack
down in the Specialty Topic. One for Stephanie.
Matt votes to put the money over relationships. Jon may
not know the material, and Stephanie is gone.
Maybe Stephanie can get a few dollars for the ring if
she sells it on eBay, but she gets no money from Michael
Davies and company.
ROUND FOUR: The specialty topic. Making of
cheese, facts about American cheese. Whee.
Jon eats lots of cheese, but that's all.
Jon: Early cheese coloring agents were made from
marigold petals and carrots.
Boaz: What is the second most popular cheese in the US?
Boaz doesn't want to use his ring, since he likely won't
know another question. And yet you get a whole week to
study this stuff. Boaz is in a big horkin' catch-22, and
he decides to go for it:
Boaz' Wrong Answer: Cheddar
Correct Answer: Mozzarella. If you watched night three
of Greed, you might have known that.
Round four is over, and once again, my pick to win the
money is shown the door.
ROUND FIVE: Insane Memorization Challenge.
Billboard Number Ones: From 1989, Song, Artist, Date it
reached number one, length of stay. 128 elements.
(T-Note: Jon is going down faster than a cheap prom
Jon: 96 elements. "Right Here Waiting" instead of "Don't
Wanna Lose You"
Nicole: 60. "Baby Don't Forget My Number" instead of
Matt: 21. Matt: "Fine Young Cannibals" instead of "Mike
+ the Mechanics"
Jon is shocked, as am I, along with the other players.
Matt is gone. 21? That's ALL? Oh well.
ROUND SIX: The $77,000 Race.
Nicole is totally shaking right now.
Jon opts to play first.
Typically, I don't like to take the name of my Lord in
vain. But after you find out what happened, I think
He'll forgive me...
Holy Sweet Mother of God. 57.17 seconds is the time set
by Jon. He interrupts at the right times, and only
misses one. Any other show, he'd have the money locked
Nicole is now up. Maybe they left the sound on in her
booth, because she interrupts with correct answer after
correct answer. She answers Jeopardy with 15 seconds to
go, and becomes player number seven in the Grand Final.
And Ken Jennings is now famous, he's been a trivia
answer on a low-rated game show, only we never heard the
Wow, this show proved that the show crawls for the first
40 minutes, but kicks into high gear at the end. Only
one left, and someone is going to be obscenely wealthy
in a few days. Until Grand Championship Thursday, I'm
