Below is the correct order. Use your mouse to highlight the letters.

He's right again! $200.

Tom goes with D...

And that's his final answer.

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: This is what I meant about my lament for Robby Roseman. THIS question is easier than the one about Hannibal, yet it's 5 steps higher up the ladder. Later on we'll see another easy question even higher up.

For $4000:
7. Sarah Ferguson is the spokesperson for which of the following?

A. Jenny CraigB. Weight Watchers
C. Lean CuisineD. Overeaters Anonymous

Unfortunately for Tom, all four choices have the same purpose. He's reasonably sure, but he'll Ask the Audience.

A. Jenny Craig - 6%B. Weight Watchers - 86%

C. Lean Cuisine - 5%D. Overeaters Anonymous - 3%

Tom had a feeling it was Weight Watchers all along. He chooses B...

And that's his final answer.

The audience comes through yet again! $4000!

For $8000:
8. Which of these abbreviations represents the computer storage capacity known as one thousand bytes?


Tom doesn't know it himself, but he knows someone who does. HIs computer friend, Dennis. Here's the transcript, after the question and choices:

    Dennis: "For a thousand bytes, you said?"
    Tom: "A thousand bytes."
    Dennis: "A thousand bytes is a Kilobyte. That's KB."
    Tom: "How positive are ya?"
    Dennis: "Well, it's either KB or MB, MB is Megabyte."
    Tom: "Thank you, Dennis!" (Time's up)

I hope Dennis' final remark doesn't confuse Tom. But he knows that Kilo means one thousand, so he'll go with B...

Which is his final answer.

Tom: "I'm a fat man, Regis! My heart can't take it!"
(Audience laughs hysterically, which fades into cheers)
Reege: "I'm just trying to help you sweat off a few pounds!!"

Tom's right! It's KB!!

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: OK folks, two separate lines. Softies who want to let this go, line up to the left. Hair-Splitters who want to riot because a KB is actually 1,024 bytes and not 1,000, line up to the right. I'm siding more towards the right here, since after Thursday's horribly written questions, the writers should have taken a little more time in compiling their information. I'm not about to go on a tirade, though. Since ROM and RAM were totally wrong, and MB was too large a unit, it had to be KB.

For $16,000:
9. Which of these appears on the reverse of a 20 dollar bill?

A. Lincoln MemorialB. US Capitol
C. White HouseD. US Treasury

And no, he can't reach for his wallet.

Tom has it narrowed down to two possibilites, but wants to see if the 50:50 will knock off one of his alternatives.

OUT B. US Capitol

C. White HouseOUT

It worked. Tom only has one of his choices left. He picks B...

Yes, that's his final answer.

And if you have a Twenty in your wallet...

You know that the back side of it....

Has a picture of...

C. The White House.
Tom Colletta is knocked out of the game with $1000.

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: This was a pretty tough one. I may have gone with the White House, but since I wouldn't have had to use my Phone-a-Friend on the last question, I could always call my mom or dad and have them whip out a Twenty for me.

WINNINGS TO DATE: $429,000, at least.
