A - Venmo
B - OpenTable

Jacob is Canadian so Rebel asks him. He says that all the answers are apps. He says that only C and D use voice and D is concerned with mindfulness.
A - Saturn
B - Venus
C - Mercury
D - Mars
Rebel says it must be a planet with rings around it. She asks Jacob if Saturn is the answer.
A - The Colosseum
B - Stonehenge
C - Taj Mahal
D - Machu Picchu
Rebel says that all she's done during the pandemic is watch the news and she thinks she knows this. She asks Jacob, who doesn't know the answer.
A - South Korea
B - France
C - Taiwan
D - Mexico
Rebel says she's a member of the Academy so this should be easy for her. She wonders if the director of Parasite won last year. She disregards A and C. She asks Jacob who has no idea. She decides to ask Jimmy for help.
Ask the host results:
$32,000: Though we now use it more broadly, the word "chops" was once specifically used to mean a "high skill level" in reference to whom?
A - chefs
B - jazz musicians
C - newspaper reporters
D - barbers
Rebel thought it meant singing but that isn't an option. She asks Jacob - he asks her what she thinks it isn't. He says he doesn't think it's D; Rebel is leaning B.
$64,000: For the past five years, the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest has been won by a man with what last name?
A - Curry
B - Bacon
C - Chestnut
D - Frank
Rebel thinks she's heard of the contest and seen it on TV but doesn't know who won it, so she decides to phone a friend. She wants to call Jacob Bush, from the East Coast.
$125,000: Which of the following is recognizable for its three four-pointed geometric shapes called "hypocycloids"?
A - Pittsburgh Steelers helmet
B - Canadian flag
C - Starbucks logo
D - Rolls-Royce hood ornament
Rebel says it's not B; she is a big football fan and roots for the Los Angeles Rams. She doesn't think that the Steelers helmet has anything on it; Jimmy says they all do. She's leaning toward the hood ornament. She's not 100% sure so she decides to use her last lifeline.
Ask the smartest person results:
A - Alexander Hamilton's gold inkwell
B - Ben Franklin's pewter beer steins
C - Martha Washington's silverware
D - Thomas Jefferson's copper sink
Rebel complains that this is a "heavy U.S. question". She didn't go to school in America and she doesn't know the timeline. She says that Martha Washington and Alexander Hamilton were around t the same time because they knew each other, which she learned from Hamilton, the musical. She wonders if the coins were gold or silver. She thinks it's C but it's a complete guess. She's going to take the gamble and personally make up the difference if she's wrong. Don't they say that in multiple choice questions, always go with "C"?
A - Saudi Arabia
B - China
C - United Arab Emirates
D - Malaysia
Rebel has been to one of the really tall buildings in the UAE; she's terrified of heights and wouldn't come out of the elevator. Her gut says it's the UAE. She wonders if she should take the gamble again; Jimmy reminds her she would lose $218,000. She decides to walk away with $250,000. Had she decided to go with it, she would have taken "C" again.
