Jeff is now the first person in the November run to make it this far. Can he make it even farther? We'll find out on this next question:

For $125,000, or ONE EIGHTH of a MILLION DOLLARS:
12. Including tentacles, how many arms does a squid usually have?



A. TenB. Eight
C. TwelveD. Six

Jeff doesn't even pretend to know this one. He immediately decides to use his Phone-a-Friend and call his friend, Tony. Here's the transcript after the formalities:

    Tony: "Ten, Eight, Twelve, or Six."
    Jeff: "Yes."
    Tony: "OK. Um... What immediately comes to mind is Ten, but I'm not sure. OK?"
    Jeff: "OK. Ten is your best guess?"
    Tony: "Yeah. How many tentacles does a squid have...."
    Jeff: "That's a tough one."
    Tony: "OK." (Burp burp)



Not a convincing enough suggestion, so Jeff will use his final Lifeline and ask the patiently-waiting audience.

A. Ten - 39%B. Eight - 18%



C. Twelve - 18%D. Six - 25%

It looks like the Audience will have their first failure of the run tonight.

With no certainty from either his correspondent or the audience, Jeff is going to pass on this question.
Jeff Siehl leaves with $64,000.

With a free shot, Jeff would've tried A...

And he would've been right. A. Ten is the answer.

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: For the first time this month, we saw a good use of Lifelines. Not to say that they were all helpful, but Jeff knew exactly at what times to use them. Contestants before him either got bounced with Lifelines still available, others squandered them on early questions. Jeff seemed to hit the happy medium here.

WINNINGS TO DATE: $146,000
