Night 6 - May 25
time, we were in some dire straits. After seeing big
chance after big chance, Rich Willis, Kim Toncar, and
Matt Dowdle don't get past $100,000. Kim leaves with
$50,000, while the boys left the hot seat prematurely
The real star of the show
was Pat Headley, who made it up to $500,000 thanks to
the Three Wise Men. He begins tonight's game in the next
dimension with his Double Dip, going for $1 million.
Pat talks it over, and
Regis wonders if he and his wife talked about this last
night. He thinks about trips and bills. "I... I can't do
it." He walks with $500,000. Correct answer: Wampanoag
(if I had taken the DD, I would've gotten it). Still,
$500,000 ain't hay, you know. Anyway, who will take his
spot. One way to find out. Tonight's first FFF.
these famous U.S. generals in order by year of
their birth, starting with the most recent.
Ulysses S. Grant
Correct order: DBCA.
Eight in this time, all under six seconds. The fastest,
though, would be, at 3.61, Daniel Sperry!
Sperry, 22, from Orem, UT, is a biology major at BYU.
He's thinking about geography in order to be an
optometrist. "I majored in sociology," Regis says, "and
look what happened to me." Just goes to show you. Major
in sociology, and you too can have a game show. Let's go
to the $1000 question, please.
It's C, and Daniel can
continue to $2000.
Daniel knows the body
biologically, but not figuratively. It wouldn't be to
"finger somebody", that's for sure. He asks the
audience, who give him the nod with 74 percent going for
A for $2000. Next for three.
That would be B for
$3000. Next for $4000...
"Yada yada yada..." Yada
yada C, yada yada $4000. Yada yada milestone.
A is Daniel's final
answer for the $5000 lock-in. Now to $10,000.
He halves it to B and C
thanks to the 50/50. Then he locks in B for the $10,000.
Now for $20,000.
Hope you remember Anna
Kournikova. He doesn't. He makes A his final, and I have
to introduce him to my sister. Correct answer, of
course, D. Daniel leaves with $5000 and a phone-a-friend
in wait. And here's the next FFF.
these monster movies in order by their first
starting with the most recent.
Interview with the Vampire
Correct order, D (just a
couple of weeks ago), A (2000), C (1993), B (1985). Bang
on those keys, guys. Everyone except Chris Smith got it
in. The fastest, though, was Dan Michelini.
Michelini from Bloomfield Hills, MI, a suburb of
Detroit, is a worker in the software industry and has
been warching the show since its US inception in 1999.
You know back in 1999, this was worth $100. Now, it's
time for a $1000 question right off the bat.
If it's D, then I'm one
of the 7 percent. But it's B, and Dan can continue.
It's C for $2000. Next
It's the mammoth A for
$3000. Next for $4000.
He manifests $4000 from
C. Now for the $5000.
He's only seen one. And
he's sure it's B... and he's got the $5000! next up for
A's his final, and here's $10,000! Now here's
Doesn't waste time on D for $20,000. Now
to $30,000, eight away from $10 million.
He asks the audience, and 45 percent come back with
Mary J. He agrees, and has $30,000 to show for it. Next
up for $50,000.
He's leaning towards A, but doesn't know
for sure, so he decided to use a lifeline,
but which one? He's gonna go 50/50, leaving
A and B. He goes with A on chance... and
chance pays off! Gateway to the new
dimension at $100,000.
Again, no idea. He phones up Peter. "I
hope you have more lifelines." No idea from
his end, and he's out of lifelines. Dan has
no clue, and he bails with $50,000. Correct
answer is C, believe it or not. Time for
Put these durations in
order by their length, starting with the
Six hundred seconds
One third of an hour
Correct order: C, A, D, B. Three are in, and leave it
to a math question to stymie even the brightest mind. At
4.88, Amy Green steps up to bat.
all the way from Santa Monica, CA, Amy Green is a
special events coordinator who directs charity events.
She's rather successful, as her newlywed husband can
attest to. Well he can't help except with the ATA
lifeline, so that's about all he can attest to. Let's
Amy goes for C for $1000. Next for $2000.
It's B for $2000. Next up for three.
Or DESPAIR! D gets her $3000 and the
right to see this...
Amy watches those carbs for $4000 and a peek into the
And that made all the difference. Amy secures the
$5000 and sees the $10,000.
Will Hung's the "She Bangs Guy" for $10,000. Next?
She doesn't know, so she goes to the audience.
Sixty-nine percent say D. She agrees. She can continue
Mom always told me. "Hoy" is today. But she's not
Spanish, so she phones Bob. He agrees with me,
instantaneously. "Today. What's the question?" No
question, she goes to the $50,000 question. But before
we do, we're at 48 minutes, so we go to the three Wise
Men for tonight's requisite camera time:
Lori Meduski; executive director, Us Weekly
David Goodman; youngest Millionaire champion
Dr. Tyra Spiegel; program director for the
Library of Congress with a PhD. in poli-sci
Now, the $50,000 question.
She remembers A for $50,000 and the
She thinks she knows, but she 50/50s it to Belgium or
Germany. She doesn't want to guess, so she walks with
the $50,000. Correct answer: B. Okay, one more FFF for

Beth Makibbin. Eddie Lawhorn takes the slowest in 13.24.
In a fifth of that, at 3.24 is our next player, Chris
Hailing for Calhoun, GA, Chris is "a large person" who
plays trivia at Hooters, where he is known for an
instance of pants-droppage. Not to be seen here. Running
out of time. Let's play!
It's C for $1000. Next for $2000.
It's A for $2000. Next for $3000.
It's B for $3000. Next for $4000.
It's D for $4000. Time for five.
It's C for the guaranteed $5000. More tomorrow?
We'll see, as Super Millionaire concludes.
