have you seen my episode?alietr wrote: ↑Thu May 02, 2019 1:20 pmI don't believe there are any of these. I'll admit they've badly estimated how difficult a particular question is, but I can't remember a stack that I wasn't able to get through to $5k that required any mental exertion. They're all pretty much gimmes to that point unless you make a dumb mistake.
The first three questions were obvious, but not the usual joke type. The 4th question and 5th questions needed actual knowledge.
Which of these Oscar hosts has actually won an Oscar?
A. Ellen DeGeneres
B. Billy Crystal
C. Hugh Jackman
D. Whoopi Goldberg
notice it doesn't specify what type of Oscar. I could easily see Billy Crystal having won a writing award. I only got this not because I pay attention to the Oscars, but because I studied the EGOT list right before the show and saw Whoopi on it. She won for Ghost.
The 5th question wasn't a total sloucher either, but was easy enough to figure out while standing there:
A 2015 study by Hopper.com found that since "sparsely-populated states with fewer airports have higher prices," the most expensive states to fly from are what?
(here is where I figured there would be one state per answer, not three)
A: Maryland, Pennsylvania & Massachusetts
B: Illinois, California & Texas
C: Arkansas, Ohio & Florida
D: Wyoming, Delaware & North Dakota
I've seen this stuff through the run of the show where one stack seems designed to get people to use lifelines really early.
