Night 5
August 13

"Angela Watt from Oxford, MI, about to face one of the biggest challenges of her life! She's got two lifelines left, and still eight questions away from winning $1 million! But Angela's the mother of twin boys, so surely she can handle ANYTHING! Find out and cheer her on as the return of Millionaire to primetime continues!"

With those words, Angela Watt makes her return to the Hot Seat with $4000 and two lifelines remaining, her PAF and her Expert. Tonight's Expert is CNN senior political correspondent Candy Crowley. So far, she's banked 52 seconds in addition to the 45 she'll already have once she gets up there.

Angela is apparently a frisky attorney, but on New Year's Eve, she "just has to let it out" by "getting a little naked" at midnight.

( $8,000 ) Proper Pronunciation
What is the correct French pronunciation of the restaurant term that is spelled p-r-i-f-i-x-e?

( $16,000 ) Namely Speaking
What celebrity nickname would most aptly apply to the author of the 1903 novel "The Call of the Wild"?
A: A-Rod

( $25,000 ) The Long Walk
If you walked due north from El Paso, Texas to Canada, which of these states would you not pass through on your journey?
A: Montana
B: Idaho
C: Wyoming
D: Colorado

Angela has an idea, but she decides to Phone-a-Friend. She calls up Linda. "Wyoming." Just made it under the gun. Too bad it's wrong. It was B, so Angela leaves with $1000.

But her loss could be the gain of one of THESE ten... And they ARE...

Jacob Shaha - Fort Campbell, KY
JaNelle Pluff - Flower Mound, TX
Robert Brown - Bronx, NY
