Damn, no wonder that one was worth $25,000. I NEVER would've guessed three! :shock:

Really, I thought MJ was bad at baseball. Three home runs isn't too bad, especially for an elite NBA player like him.

Actually, that one was just worth $25,000 by coincidence.  In the older formats, it probably would've had to be worth that, but the money values are no longer tied to the question's difficulty.  The easiest question in Round 1 could be worth the most, the hardest worth the least or anything in between.  You've basically got to hope for the smaller money on the harder questions and the bigger money on the ones you can answer, and predict how much you might be jumping over if you have to jump.  Keep all of that in mind as you decide whether or not answer this question:

Quote
"Kummerspeck," the German word used to describe weight gained from emotional overeating, translates to what in English?

A: Grief bacon
B: Agony butter
C: Emptiness cake
D: Torment candy

Damn, I don't know enough German to answer this.  I think I can narrow it to A and C, because people usually overeat because of Grief or Emptiness, not Agony or Torment.

As much as I don't want to, I'm gonna have to use my other Jump the Question.

Foreign language, my old nemesis...why must you torment me so?!

Okay, let's break it down...people usually overeat because they're unhappy, so it's probably A or C. And since I'm pretty sure "cake" in German is "Kuchen", I can rule C out.  By process of elimination, I'll take a stab at this one and say A.  Final...

Damn, two questions back to back where I must jump the question at the start of the game? I hate to do this again, but I'm jumping it again.

I don't want to lose another lifeline, either, so I'm going with A, too.

How ironic it would be if this time around, me and THK continue on, but the other three get eliminated. :roll:

Well, I figure I might as well give the translations for all four here, in case any of you were curious.  You'll probably realize why the figure of speech is what it is. :lol:

Quote
A: Kummerspeck
B: Peinenbutter
C: Leerheitskuchen
D: Qualenschmaus

Luckily for those of you who jumped, you didn't lose out on as much money this time.  This question was worth $500 to each of you that got it:

Standings after 2 questions:
The Silver Monkey: $500 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
The Bandit King: $500 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $500 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
PurpleParrot319: $0 in bank; Ask the Audience remaining
The Headless King: $0 in bank; Ask the Audience remaining

To be fair, in the actual show, it's very rare for contestants to get to Round 2 and still have a lifeline available.  There's been six $250K winners so far under the shuffle format, and only one of them actually had a lifeline left going into Round 2.  So it's possible for any of you to turn it around after a rough start (keep in mind questions this hard could've shown up at any point in the two weeks, but there should be easier ones lying around), but I think this shows I'm getting better at my role in the whole game. :P
