C, final answer. The other choices are pretty funny though. :lol:

You know, "Hotel California" might not be the best reasoning.  There was a town in New Mexico named after a game show, so why not one named after a song? It's totally possible.



...But not true in this case.  All of you just got $100,000!

Standings after 11 questions:
The Headless King: $100,000 in bank; one Jump the Question remaining
The Silver Monkey: $100,000 in bank; Ask the Audience remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $100,000 in bank; Ask the Audience remaining
The Bandit King: $100,000 in bank; no lifelines remaining
PurpleParrot319: $100,000 in bank; no lifelines remaining
JTH1: $1000 total winnings

Not bad, you guys, not bad.  Just three questions left, and if any of you decide to go for this next one, you're risking $75K in loss versus $150K in gain.  Don't forget your lifelines, for those of you who still have them.


$250,000:

I know not nearly enough about Andre the Giant or half of these authors to even come up with a guess.  I think I'll use my last jump and try the $500k question.

Even though I don't know it, I'm going for it!

I'm going to make D: John Steinbeck my final answer.

Just leave it to the wrestling savant to rationalize this one out! :D

Let's see...Andre grew up in Grenoble, France, and Beckett wrote many of his plays in French. So even though I don't know if Beckett actually lived in France, I'm fairly certain the others didn't, so I'll say A. Final answer.

I'm still not ready to bow out yet, but I'm not exactly sure what the answer is. I think I'll use my Ask the Audience, for the first time in me playing this game.

Well, this is getting interesting.  I've gotten a mix of answers from this one, but the correct one was... A: Samuel Beckett.  Unfortunately, not everybody got that, so at this point we have to say goodbye to two more contestants.  PPF, PP319: A nice effort, both of you, and you do both get $25K from this session to add to your cumulative totals.

Standings after 12 questions:
The Bandit King: $250,000 in bank; no lifelines remaining
The Silver Monkey: $250,000 in bank; no lifelines remaining
The Headless King: $100,000 in bank; no lifelines remaining
Purple Parrots Fan: $25,000 total winnings
PurpleParrot319: $25,000 total winnings
JTH1: $1000 total winnings

I honestly can't believe we're getting this far along already, but we still have three contestants in the running and we're just TWO questions away from the million.  Take a look and decide if you want to go for it.

$500,000:

Man, this could be the toughest one yet. Since I have literally no clue, I think I'll just walk with my bank.

Final.

Hmmm.

I'm fairly sure there's one in Kuwait.  It's a small country, but very industrialized and rich.
Bahrain is not AS industrialized, but I'm more than willing to bet there's also one there.

For me, it's between Lebanon and Syria.  Neither of those is particularly striving or industrialized, but I think Syria is far worse, so I'll say D.

D, Final answer.

I can't believe how gutsy you guys are right now. :P


But it IS Syria!


Standings after 13 questions:
The Silver Monkey: $500,000 in bank; no lifelines remaining
The Headless King: $500,000 in bank; no lifelines remaining
The Bandit King: $250,000 total winnings
Purple Parrots Fan: $25,000 total winnings
PurpleParrot319: $25,000 total winnings
JTH1: $1000 total winnings

Well, I don't know how gutsy you guys really are, but this question could decide everything.  I believe I said that getting the million would turn quizmaster duties over to the winner, but if you both get this one... Well, I hadn't planned for this. :lol: But keep in mind if you do go for it that you will either get the million if you're right or otherwise be left with $25,000 if you're wrong.  Good luck!

Hey, if we were dealing with REAL money, I would've been done quite some time ago.  :lol:

And now onto the question.  Yikes!  I really have no clue, except that D sounds vaguely familiar.

My guess would be D, but my official decision is to walk with the half million.
