Night 1 - May 16
broadcaster Scott Hoff, whose dream is to one day
be a game show host, returns from three months ago with
$5000 and all three of his lifelines remaining. Waiting,
worrying, wondering if he'll make his way into the next
dimension and a chance at more money than has ever been
won on US television.
Meanwhile, Scott and his
mother Diane have had numerous tips on how to use his
lifelines. Remember, the money tree is
million. Should he make it to the $100,000
milestone, he'll be granted two more lifelines: Double
Dip (two chances to answer a question) and Three Wise
Men (expert assistance on a question).
And now, after three
months of waiting, worrying, and wondering... The
He reasons 120 yards...
or 360 feet for $10,000. Now onto $20,000:
He uses his first
lifeline, asking the audience. A whopping 83 percent go
for D. He goes for D. Scott's got $20,000. Next for
He goes for another
lifeline, as the 50/50 leaves Citigroup and HP. Then he
decides to call her PAF Jean. "Scott, it's
Hewlett-Packard." He agrees... and Jean was right!
Before we get to the $50,000, Scott tells the crowd that
he is currently unattached. Right now, he's unattached
to lifelines as we see the next question:
Scott makes B his
final... and goes to $50,000. Next is for $100,000
"Trying to multiply it
up? Have you reached a nickel yet?" He has. He goes for
A... and he reaches $100,000! That's secure, and now so
is his ticket to... the next dimension... Five questions
away now, as he goes for $500,000. But before we do, we
reveal tonight's Three Wise Men:
senior arts editor, Time Magazine
Dr. Jim Gates; professor of physics, University
Dan Blonsky; former Millionaire winner
Now, to business.
He goes for the Three
Wise Men. They talk it out, every so unnerved, and guess
on B. It's only a guess, so he's going for the Double
Dip next. He first says B... and it's wrong. Now, with a
one-in-three shot, he says C... and he's got $500,000!
He... still can't get a date, but can he get $1,000,000
on his own now?
Scott has no idea, so
he's going to walk with the $500,000. Hey, if you don't
know, you don't know. But for gratification, the answer
was D, August 2. So if anyone asks, you heard it here.
Next up, the ten we were talking to you about on the
front page earlier this weekend. Here's tonight's first
these movies in order by their first
theatrical release, starting with the most
13 Going on 30
Three Men and a Baby
Correct order: A (2004),
D (1999), C (1995), B (1987). Three in right, the
fastest, at just shy of four seconds, is Judi Stauber!
Brookfield, IL is a medical transcriber who does her
work at home (also being a stay-at-home mom). Her
husband was laid off six months ago, and if anyone
needed the money, she does. "Mommy, Regis is on! Can I
call him Regis?"
Cute kid. The climb up
the super money tree... starts now!
"I know who I want to
say." It's not D... It's B. And here's $2000:
Medical transcriber gets
B for $2000. Now for $3000:
She gets Law & Order for
$3000 and a chance at five...
She goes for A and the
$4000. For the $5000 milestone.
Yeah, we all remember
this... it was a wardrobe malfunction, and we've got
$5000 worth of booty. Husband Ed is in the crowd, and
when he gets nervous, he throws up. Everything's fine
for now. But wait till he sees this gem for $10,000.
She looks at the
question and reasons 4 from "quarantine". She takes the
ball and runs into the end zone for $10,000. Next for
She's never read it.
She's heard of it, but it's not enough. She goes for the
ATA... and 57 percent of the A says C. She goes with the
A, and she's got 20 K's en route to 30...
She goes for D... and
Kandahar is in Afghanistan! Going for $50,000 once she
gets the faces out of her system.
She knows the movie, and
she remembers C for $50,000, one away from $100,000.
Here's the milestone question:
wrestling just seems wrong!" Judi says as she goes for
the PAF, Dwayne. "Oh, boy. Not my expertise at all. It
would only be a wild guess." No help there, so she goes
for the 50/50, leaving A and B. She takes the chance and
goes for the answer that sounds wrong, but really makes
sense, that being women's wrestling. Final answer....
RIGHT ANSWER! She's on her way to the next dimension and
this question for $500,000.
She asks the Three Wise
Men. Dan thinks that oysters makes sense, but still not
fully convinced, she goes for the Double Dip. Her first
answer: honey... WRONG. Judi has one more answer. She
tries oysters... also wrong. It was sausage, and Judi
loses nothing on the freeball, leaving with $100,000.
Royal horns sound, and that's game called. Stay tuned
for the series finale of "The Practice" over most of
these ABC stations and good night!
