Answer: C (elbow)
I agree that it isn't going to be knee or heel. If my "smartest person" couldn't help me work through this, I'd be in trouble because 50:50 probably would leave C and D, and I doubt that "ask the host" would be of any use. Maybe my phone a friend would be able to do it (just ask for definition of "olecranal").

So essential workers get the guaranteed $32,000 like the celebrities? That takes the pressure off.
