Reege: "Wanna call your attorney?"
Jeff: (Sheepishly) "Uh-huh... yeah..."

But Jeff is going to bite the bullet. He'll pick C...

Reege: "How confident are you?"
Jeff: "Um... I'm confident that I can't guess any better than that."

Jeff is willing to put $7,000 on the line and go down swinging rather than chicken out at this stage. He'll go with C...

But wait - he still wants to think it over now.

Reege: "Where are we? I've lost track."
(Audience laughs)
Jeff: "Um, yeah, whatever..."
(More laughs)

Hesitantly, Jeff picks C...

And that's his final answer.

Well, like I said...

Jeff wanted to go down swinging...

And unfortunately, this was his final swing. The answer was A. Nike.

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: This was an awful tough question, perhaps better reserved for the upper tier. Still, you've got to admire this guy for having the guts to go for it. I'd have picked Converse as well, so I'd have done no better.

WINNINGS TO DATE: $1,276,000, at least.
