Hmm...the "K" word sounds German, and since I'm fairly certain Austria used to be part of Germany, I'll say C.

Well, so far everybody once again got that one right.  It's only worth $100, but everybody's still tied at this point. :P

Standings after 2 questions:
The Headless King: $3100 in bank; all three lifelines remaining
PurpleParrot319: $3100 in bank; all three lifelines remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $3100 in bank; all three lifelines remaining
The Silver Monkey: $3100 in bank; all three lifelines remaining
The Bandit King: $3100 in bank; all three lifelines remaining

All right, here comes the third question for you five.

I think I can narrow it down, but even then, my answer would only be a guess, so I'm gonna jump this question.

For some reason, I think I remember seeing this question somewhere. However, even if I did see it, I don't remember the answer. Therefore, I'm skipping this question.

I really have no idea, and I don't want to just go along with the crowd. Even though I'm probably wrong and will probably be out, I'm gonna guess C.

I know that Triscuits and Ritz Crackers don't have any words printed on them, and I'm pretty sure Cheez-It doesn't, either.

That being said, C, Oreo, final answer.

Well, it looks like the last question really had more of a mixture of responses.  Fair enough, because it was a harder one.  So, the rundown:

Apparently The Bandit King was unable to respond in time.  On the actual show, the clock format of Seasons 7 and 8 treated contestants that ran out of time without answering as though they chose not to answer (letting them walk away with their current winnings rather than dropping them down to the minimum at that point), so for now, I'll do the same here, and treat it as though he decided to jump the question.  I'm sorry about that; I can understand if real life can get in the way unexpectedly, but for the sake of fairness in the game... I can change this rule if you guys have a better alternative, though.

The Headless King and PurpleParrot319 both chose to jump the question, leaving them each with two lifelines now.

The Silver Monkey and Purple Parrots Fan both answered C: Oreos.  I agree with the way you reasoned it out and I thought the same thing watching yesterday's show, but unfortunately, it wasn't the right answer.  It was actually B: Ritz Crackers. :( I'm sorry about that, but both of you do get $1000 as a final score.

The question itself, by the way, was worth $1000.  The remaining collectible amounts in Round 1 are $500; $2000; $5000; $7000; $10,000; $15,000 and $25,000.

Standings after 3 questions:
The Headless King: $3100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
PurpleParrot319: $3100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
The Bandit King: $3100 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $1000 total winnings
The Silver Monkey: $1000 total winnings

The three of you still in the game are now eleven questions away from the million and seven away from Round 2.  Here's the next question:

Quote
In 2011; what organization offered amnesty to the 143,000 children that owed them over $15 in late fees?

A: Girl Scouts of America
B: AT&T
C: New York Public Library
D: Blockbuster

Let's see.  I'm pretty sure Blockbuster went out of business, but why would children owe them money in the first place?  AT&T makes no sense because phone companies don't really have "late fees", especially not to children.  I don't know much about Girl Scouts of America, but I'm pretty sure if they even did have something of late fees, there'd be a lot more than 143,000 children who owed.  New York Public Library sounds good due to the sheer population of New York, plus library late fees can add up quite a bit.

C. Final answer.

I want to say A, but I have this funny feeling it's going to be C. B and D don't make sense to me and I'm scared to use another lifeline. I'm gonna have to guess.

A or C? A or C? Ohhhhh, C! Final answer.

Hey TAW, since the three remaining players have already locked in their guesses (me, THK, and TBK), is it okay if we find out what the correct answer is now? You don't have to reveal the answer now if you don't want to. You can stick with thhe one a day deal if you'd like, but I'm just curious. ;)

And if me and THK are both wrong, that would mean TBK is the last one standing.

Actually, I might as well. :lol:

The answer was in fact C: New York Public Library.  The question was worth $500, but that at least means that not all the players are tied now, so this can get interesting. ;)

So, just to recap, the three remaining players are now ten questions away from the million and six away from Round 2.  Walking away in Round 1 will only involve taking half the bank, but if you make it to Round 2, you can walk away with the entire bank.  The remaining six questions in Round 1 are worth $2000; $5000; $7000; $10,000; $15,000 and $25,000; but not necessarily in that order. :P

Standings after 4 questions:
The Headless King: $3600 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
PurpleParrot319: $3600 in bank; Ask the Audience and one Jump the Question remaining
The Bandit King: $3100 in bank; Ask the Audience remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $1000 total winnings
The Silver Monkey: $1000 total winnings

The fifth question will be coming at about 1 PM tomorrow, or right after tomorrow's episode.

Before I give you today's question, I'd like to remind you three that if you choose to ask the audience, I'll send you the result via PM.  From there, I'd prefer it if you kept your final decision on the question to PM as well, in case the nature of the response could give away a little too much about the results.  If you choose to walk before you reach Round 2, you can take half the bank, but missing a question will cause you to lose the bank.

So, here's the fifth question:

Quote
Roughly how many fortnights are in a decade?

A: 50
B: 110
C: 190
D: 260
