||C. Ottawa, Canada ||D. Warsaw, Poland
||Correct Order (drag the mouse over the letters): C-A-B-D
Chad's winning time: 4.97
Let's see if Chad can win it all!

Chad immediately says A...
And he's correct! $100.
|2. Which of the following foods do you have to 'shuck' before eating?||A. Guava||B. Zucchini
||C. Oysters||D. Carrots
Chad is another one of those players who wants to make sure he doesn't trip up on an early question, so he'll burn the 50:50.
|OUT||OUT||C. Oysters||B. Carrots
Knowing that one peels carrots, he goes with C...
For his final answer.
Whew! He got it!
|3. What two groups does the PTA join?||A. Pairs and trios||B. Parents and teachers

|5. Whose music are you a fan of if you call yourself a 'Parrothead'?||A. Grateful Dead||B. Limp Bizkit

|A. Grateful Dead - 3%||B. Limp Bizkit - 9%||C. Calypso - 14%||D. Jimmy Buffett - 74%
I'm worried about the 9% who picked Limp Bizkit. They're something-heads, all right...
But Chad is persuaded by the audience to select D...
Which will be his final answer.
And he's stumbled his way to a thousand dollars!

Without hesitation, Chad decides to use the Phone-a-Friend and call Mike, a fellow teacher. After the obligatory stuff, here's what they said:
Chad: "You're sure?"
Mike: "Yes I am."
Chad: "OK, thanks Mike."
Mike: "OK." (Hang up with 13 seconds left)
That was quick. And so is Chad saying D...
As his final answer.
No problem! $16,000!
|10. What is the largest denomination of U.S. currency to be issued since 1969?||A. $100||B. $500
||C. $1,000||D. $10,000
He seems pretty sure that A and B aren't right. He seems to remember a $10,000 bill being mentioned somewhere, so he'll take D...
And that will be his final answer.
Kind of a gamble on this question.
And it's a gamble that...
Will cost him money. The answer was A. $100.
LOOGAROO LAMENTS: Two things here. First, Chad should've stopped. It was obvious he didn't really know the answer, plus he was out of Lifelines. $16,000 may not be the largest amount available on this show, but it's 16 times more than he left with. Also, regarding the question, the word "issued" is the key word. Sure, there might be $10,000 bills floating around, but the mint isn't making them. Try going to a bank and getting your $1,000,000 in $10,000 bills, and you'll see what I mean.
The following space is blank - don't worry about it.
