C. The Matterhorn - 3%D. Mount Everest - 76%

Paul knows that the audience is always right. He chooses D...

And NOW that's his final answer.

And the audience's perfect record stays intact!

* - Yes, I know they missed that Norman Payne's $64K question, but it wasn't entirely their fault - Norman lead them off the right answer. He thought it was A or B, and he wanted the audience to vote between them. Besides, 12% did vote for Lego.

Regis reminds Paul that he has two Lifelines left, and that this question is a freebie.

But Paul knows the answer to this question. He picks B...

He's got nothing to lose if he misses...

But he doesn't have to worry about that!

For $125,000, or ONE EIGHTH of a MILLION DOLLARS:
12. Jacqueline du Pre was a celebrated player of what musical instrument:

A. PianoB. Violin
C. CelloD. Flute

Paul doesn't seem to know the answer.

Regis reminds Paul again of his two Lifelines.

Paul is going to use one - his 50:50.


C. CelloD. Penny

Paul still doesn't know, so he's going to call his brother Peter. Here's the transcript:

    Paul: "It's tough, Pete. Uh, Jacqueline du Pre - what did she play, Cello or Flute?"
    Peter: "Jacqueline du Pre..."
    Paul: "Jacqueline du Pre."
    Peter: "du Pre... Cello or Flute... I think flute, but I'm not sure, Paul."
    Paul: "Oh. Mm-hmm. Can I phone another friend?"
    (Audience Laughs)
    Peter: "Yeah. I think it's the flute. I think it- It rings a bell, but that's it. That's all that I can think of."(Time's Up)

All three Lifelines are gone. Regis reminds Paul that he can stop and take his money.

But Paul is going to go for it. He goes with his brother and says D...

Which is his final answer.

He's taking a $32,000 gamble on this question...

And this gamble...

Will not pay off. The answer was C. Cello.
Paul Locharernkul loses half his total and leaves with $32,000.

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: I'd have guessed D as well. The only famous cello player I knew of was Yo Yo Ma, and (silly me) I didn't really think there would be more than one celebrated player of a specific instrument.

WINNINGS TO DATE: $1,340,000, at least.

That's all the time we have for new players. We'll get to the final stats in a second, but first we still have some unfinished business to take care of with a certain marathon runner

Now for David Honea, part two...
