I knew the popes were low as I had looked it up recently.  Somewhere previously I had come across the high number for the NYT.  For the price point of the book I liked it ending in -00 for a guess.  Calories I figured at four figures leaving the weight (what I knew the least about) at 885 for the home win in one try.
I got it as well using similar logic. The one I "knew" with no doubt was the popes. I mean really 700 popes in 2000 years? No way.

Then I had the other four paired off into top two and bottom two with reasonable assuredness. I figured the same thing on the price of the book 700 sounded good which put the bench press up to 885 (I knew the 700 mark was eclipsed and didn't think anybody did 1000 yet). I thought no butter leaded the popcorn to the 2nd highest total so the Times went number 1.

$10,000 on the first try. Well done by the contestant as she took her time to work it out.

How I played it:
Survivor was a gimme and I had no doubt about the war.  I've been to a hockey game (The Tank) and comfortable in short sleeves with no coat on, so I was not falling for the 44 trap to leave 65 as no doubt.  I knew there was no way the ingredients were 140 no matter what's in that thing, so 44 it is leaving those $@$%& Pep Boys (big sheep in latest TD game) as the top.

The Pep Boys are taunting you...

Pretty sure there haven't even been 44 seasons of Survivor, total, let alone 44 women winners, knew the Hundred (and sixteen years) War cold, and MSG not as cold. 44 ingredients in the McRib is slightly disturbing.

The contestant took 26 seconds to reason it out rather than blindly guess? Good job.

Interesting that two of them were right to begin with.

How are there 44 ingredients in a McRib? Are they counting all the ingredients in the sauce separately? Individual sesame seeds. There's obviously no way the preppers are putting together 44 different things (or even 13) when you order a McRib.
