    Nancy: "Beijing."
    Jennifer: "You positive?"
    Nancy: "99%."
    Jennifer: "OK. All right, thanks Mom."
    Nancy: "Good luck honey." (Hang up with 11 seconds left)

With nothing to lose, Jennifer will trust her mom and choose B...

Which is her final answer.

The Phone-a-Friend Lifeline doesn't always work.

But it did here!!

Jennifer now ties Beth Plummer for WWTBAM's richest woman. With another correct answer, she'll take that title outright.

It appears that Jennifer never took band in school, because she's whipping out her 50:50.


C. FourD. Six

Regis reminds Jennifer that she can stop if she wants, since she'll lose half her money if she's wrong.

And that's exactly what she's going to do.
Jennifer Mullins walks away with $64,000.

The correct answer was C. Four.

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: Once again, there are countless stumpers that should've gone up around this area, while easier questions are being put on the top tier. I knew the answer right away, since I played the cello in middle school (and there's four strings on both instruments), plus it's common knowledge that a guitar has six strings. If a choice is the right answer to one question, it probably isn't the answer to two. (Especially think about this if you're being asked a "which of the following is not..." questions.)

WINNINGS TO DATE: $1,143,000
