Night 4 - May 20
Tuesday's show, Devin McMahon's knowledge of "perp
walks", "The Da Vinci Code", and carrageenan got him to
the next dimension, but then someone sent in the clowns
and sent him packing with $100,000. Then Mark Ross
avoids getting whacked at $50,000, taking the $30,000
rather than risking it on what character wasn't offed on
Now we come back to Rich
Crook, who's extremely hyper... and extremely smart.
He's going for $30,000 with his 50/50 remaining.
He remembers it was D...
Wrong memory. It was C. As soon as Rich comes, he goes,
and he takes $5000 with him. So we're basically starting
from scratch. Tonight's first FFF:
these advertising catchphrases in order of
their original debut, starting with the
I want my MTV
Can you hear me now?
I'm lovin' it
Correct order: A (1980),
D (1993), B (2002), C (2004). One one got it right...
Beyerl is the only lady on the panel tonight, from
Gibsonville, PA. Her first trip to New York City, and
she sees the Naked Cowboy, his hat, his briefs, and his
guitar. Husband Glen knew she was the one when she threw
her hairbrush at her. Enough of that, let's get to the
game and the $1000 question.
On another network, that
would be A. ABC wishes it was D, though. Next up, $2000.
She makes it C for
$2000. Now for $3000.
C's lucky for $3000...
But Melissa doesn't know that until she 50/50s. Note to
Melissa, read the $4000 question first.
She locks in A for $4000
and a chance at $5000.
She asks the audience...
What?! In any event, 74 percent say boxing, and the
other 26 percent knew the answer, but said something
else out of spite. She sides with A and locks in $5000.
Now for $10,000.
She goes for B and goes
for $20,000 next.
Sounds easy enough, but
she ops for the lifeline anyway. She calls up her dad
John. "It's not a cube. It's not a cone." But it was a
cube. Melissa was going to say cube as a guess...
Should've went with it. She goes with $10,000. And we go
to another FFF.
these numbers in alphabetical order
according to how they are spelled out.
Correct order: A (fifteen),
C (forty-five), D (sixty), B (twenty). Two in right, and
Jason Carter's in with 5.05.
Carter is a sixth-grade math and science teacher from
Valdese, NC, population 1000, who uses "Millionaire" as
a motivational tool for his students (end of quarter
parties feature the game, and Jason gets to play Regis).
Well today, Regis gets to be Regis in his own metallic
suit. Jason gets to see the $1000 question.
C gets him $1000. Now to
D, and a YMCA, gets him $2000.
Now to $3000.
He goes for A and the
$3000. Next for $4000.
It's Easter, getting
Jason the $5000. Onto the $5000 benchmarks.
A is less feminine, so
he goes with that. Good move, Jason. He's got $5000.
Going for $10,000.
He tries B, remembering
Bing cherries. And he goes to $10,000 and the $20,000
Sports is his weak area,
and he has to ring up Tracy. "I'm pretty sure it's Pete
Rose." D is his final answer, and he's got $20,000!
Going for $30,000.
You can rule out C, but
that's all you can rule out. Time to poll the audience.
And 64 percent say B. He goes with the audience... and
he can continue onto the $50,000.
Sounded like Picasso,
but he 50/50s it. Picasso's up there, and so is Renoir.
He goes with Picasso... and he gets to see the $100,000
question! Downside, his lifelines are gone.
It's all him at this
point, and all Jason can say is... "I have a hunch."
Nitrogen. You know what Gene Rayburn says... go with
your gut. And his gut leads him to the NEXT DIMENSION,
where we meet tonight's Three Wise Men:
former Millionaire contestant, $500,000 winner
Chris Farley; senior editor, Time
Dr. Glen Ferrart; professor of physics, NYU
Now, for $500,000.
He's not sure, not even
on a hunch of Australia, so he goes for the Double Dip.
First answer of Australia... Wrong. Second answer of
Antarctica.... RIGHT! He's got $500,000 and is now going
Jason goes to the Wise
Men. Chris and Pat think it's either "Let me sing
forever more" or "The best is yet to come". Jason didn't
feel confident with their suggestions and takes his
$500,000. The song lyric was indeed The best is yet to
come. And another FFF is yet to come now.
these TV series in geographic order by their
primary setting, starting in California and
Sex and the City
Correct order: D (Orange
County, CA), C (Las Vegas), A (Chicago), B (New York).
Two in, and Rich Willis is ready to play! Again!
right, Rich Willis of Grand Blanc, MI, has been
here before, twice in the ring of fire four years ago.
Since then, he was trying to get back on. Heidi the wife
joins him, as he explains how he got talked into a Hot
Body competition he lost to an 80-year-old guy. Okay,
Richie. You've waited long enough. It's time for the
It's A for $1000. Next
Rich nails B for $2000. Next up for $3000...
Wow... the WORST. She cost Kwame the
title of "The Apprentice" for $3000. Next
He gets C for $4000. Now the $5000
He doesn't let the symbols trip him up. It's D for
$5000. Now onto $10,000.
Having only taken his clothes off for
fashion, he goes to the fashionable
audience. A very fashionable 68 percent say
track suits. He goes with them, and... gets
$10,000! And that's game called. Rich goes
for $20,000 on Sunday.
