Night 7 - May 26
time, another slump. But this one was more profitable,
at least for Pat Headley (winner of $500,000) and
$50,000 winners Amy Green and Dan Michelini. Daniel
Sperry, meanwhile, learns the hard way what the
lifelines are now.
Back in the hot seat for
the final night of Super Millionaire is Chris Smith, who
has all three lifelines and $5000. Let's go for $10,000.
Answer's in the
question, as Chris goes for A for $10,000. Now for
He never saw the movie,
but he knows the plot summary to get the $20,000 from B.
Now to $30,000.
He knows one is. He'll
ask the audience. And after their vote, 62 percent say
it isn't D. He knows it isn't B, and goes with the
audience... Audience is right! Now to $50,000.
I know this because I'm
tech-savvy. But is Chris? He weeds out D. And he reaches
for his phone-a-friend Chad. "Phishing. 100%." Final
answer. Got the $50,000! Now for the secured $100,000.
Goes for the 50/50,
leaving A and B. First thing that popped into his mind
is still up there. He says B. He says "Final answer".
HE'S GOT IT! Now we move into the next dimension of
play, meaning two new lifelines and three Wise Men.
Tonight, they are...
historian and author of "Don't Know Much About History"
Albert Kim; managing editor, People
Nancy Christy; former Millionaire champion
Let's move right into
the $500,000 query.
Pennsylvania has one,
but he's not sure about the rest. Chris goes for the
Wise Men. They seem to agree on either Rhode Island or
Maine. Free guess, right? He goes for it, saying A...
but it was C. Oh well. I'd've used the Double Dip as
well. But Chris leaves with $100,000. He was close, too,
but one of Rhode Island's senators was a democrat.
But who can be next to
take on the Super Millionaire 15? Time for tonight's
these organizations in the order they were
founded, starting with the earliest.
Boy Scouts of America
Habitat for Humanity
Correct order (after a
round of tappity-tap-tap-tap): B, A, C, D. Five in with
the right order, and the one in the fastest... Amy
Whaley comes to us from Hickory, NC. She was here
one time before when the show started, but was less than
half a second out of the ring of fire. The sales clerk
picked a great time to return, as she now stands down
the barrel of $10 million. First, though, out of the
basement with the $1000.
And it keeps getting
higher. A is right for $1000. Or ten gallons, har har.
Next up, $2000.
It's D for $2000. Next
Amy buys it for her son
every weekend. And with $3000, she can buy more. Thanks,
baseball players. Now for $4000.
Amy's talkin' to $4000
and seeing the $5000 question.
Sounds like Quebec for
the $5000. Amy looks at this for $10,000.
Amy gets naked... chef, for $10,000. Now to $20,000.
As ugly as they are, they would ward away
birds. The audience seems to agree, as in
the ATA poll, 56% say A. Amy agrees... and
she's WRONG! Correct answer: B. Ouch. Amy
leaves with $5000.
And we go to our next FFF.
Oscar-winning movies in order by the time
period in which they are set, starting with
Dances with Wolves
A Beautiful Mind
Shakespeare in Love
order: A, D, B, C. Three in, and just over four seconds
later, Troy Reeves is ready to play Super
Millionaire! The Boise native is the 98th most
influential Idahoan and a member of the state's
historical society. Now let's see if he'll join the
15ers club, starting with this question for $1000.
It sure ain't D. It's B, and Troy can
It's D this time, as Troy gets $2000 and
this for $3000.
A's his final for $3000. Next?
Avian = bird. Try = $4000 richer. Now to $5000.
And Hilary Duff was one of them. A gets
Troy the locked $5000. Now to $10,000.
Gotta be D for the $10,000. Now to
He asks the audience, and the audience returns with
an 89% verdict for B. He goes with them... eventually...
He says A... Not guilty. On all counts... Woops. It
was C. And Troy leaves with $5000 and reassurance that
he probably won't be back on Idaho's chart next year.
Okay, next up, what could be the last FFF.
Put these novels in
order by when they won the National Book
Award, starting with the most recent.
The Color Purple
order: B, C, A, D. Just one person gets it...
Susan McInnes at 4.60!
Susan is from Greenwood Village, CO, a suburb of
Denver, where she specializes in pain management. Well,
if her husband doctor and her professional sister didn't
do it for her, this sure will. First up, for $1000...
Don't know what that means, but it's A for $1000.
Next for $2000.
It's B, and Susan can continue to 3000.
C's Susan's final for $3000. Next for $4000.
D's right for $4000. Onto the $5000 milestone.
She knows it's Gin, and she makes enough
to buy in for a hand. Now Dr. Susan can see
the $10,000 question.
She's watched it enough to say "A, final answer" for
$10,000. Now to $20,000.
She should know this... She's a doctor, after all.
D's her final, and she sees $30,000.
She asks the New York crowd, who say, by a count of
85, P. Diddy. She agrees... and goes to the $50,000
question. We're running out of time here.
She thinks for a while, and then uses the 50/50,
leaving C and D. She's thinking about C. Final answer...
Wrong answer. It was D. Susan leaves with $5000. And
that's game called. Take us out, Reege.
"We hope to see you real soon. From New York,
everybody... Good night!"
