SECOND CHANCE WEEK

Steve Gadlin
Web marketer
Deerfield, IL


Steve reached the $5000 threshold yesterday. Previously he got to the $50,000 question but answered incorrectly and dropped to $5000. He has all his lifelines available.

$7000: The BBC says that thanks to the success of K-Pop bands like BTS and iKON, many colleges have seen an increase in students taking what language?
A - Kuwaiti
B - Korean
C - Kenyan
D - Kazakh

Steve knows what K-Pop music is.
Spoiler
Answer: B (Korean)


$10,000: Of the following pairs of actors, which are the only ones who have played each other's love interest in only one film?
A - Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore
B - Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone
C - Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore
D - Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan

This is one of Steve's weak spots ("chick flicks"). He can think of one movie for each of these couples but can't think of a second one for three of them. He decides to ask the audience.
Spoiler
Ask the Audience results:
A - 9%
B - 19%
C - 69%
D - 3%

Steve knows that
Spoiler
Swayze and Moore were love interests in "Ghost"
so he decides to trust the audience.
Spoiler
Answer: C (Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore)


$20,000: When Kate Middleton gave birth to her son Louis in April 2018, it knocked her brother-in-law Prince Harry down to what position in line for the throne?
A - fourth
B - fifth
C - sixth
D - seventh

Steve knows
Spoiler
the queen is zero, Prince Charles is first in line, his son married Kate, but he doesn't know whether it was Charles's first or second son; he then remembers Harry is the younger son. Kate can't be married to Harry if he's her brother-in-law. He figures out that Harry would be fourth
. Having reasoned it out, Steve still decides to use his 50:50.
Spoiler
"50:50 results": B & C

Steve says his calculations were incorrect, even though they were convincing.
Spoiler
He wonders if William and Kate already had a child before Louis was born
. He opts to call down Brian, his +1. This is not Brian's specialty, but he can help out. He does know that
Spoiler
Louis has an older sibling
.
Spoiler
Answer: C (sixth)
Steve wins $5,000 plus a ride on the Linq Hotel Ferris wheel (with a champagne toast) and dinner at Martorano’s at the Paris Hotel.
Chris tells Steve that Louis had an older brother and an older sister.

Steve came on just before me when we taped in July 2016. I really liked him and hoped he would reach the $50,000 plateau the second time around.
