Kerren Griffith
New York City, NY
Free-lance editor


Kerren comes out waving a stuffed animal. It's her pal "Rabbity" and she's had it about 20 years. Meredith says that she has a stuffed Sylvester that travels with her.

$100 - Which of these groups requires that its members be between 5'6" and 5'10-1/2" tall and proficient in jazz and tap dancing?

A - Boston Symphony Orchestra
B - The Rockettes
C - Boys Choir of Harlem
D - Meredith Viera's entourage

Kerren says it's "those long-stemmed American beauties."

$200 - Which of these movies features numerous scenes that take place inside a spacecraft?

A - Ten Little Indians
B - Ocean's Eleven
C - 12 Angry Men
D - Apollo 13

$300 - When it functions at a slow pace, what modern convenience is often referred to as the "World Wide Wait"?

A - the Internet
B - microwave
C - DVD player
D - escalator

$500 - Which of these poker terms is also a common prefix meaning "before"?

A - pot
B - ante
C - fold
D - bluff

In Kerren's family everyone forgets to do it.

$1K - Also called the auditory tubes, the Eustachian tubes connect the throat to which of these body parts?

A - heart
B - stomach
C - lungs
D - ears

Kerren picks up "Rabbity" and asks if he knows it.

Commercial break

Kerren is a free-lance editor and even proofreads menus to find errors. She once found a seafood entry for something listed as "deep-fried Buffalo crap". She didn't point it out to the restaurant. Her boyfriend Tony is in the relationship seat.

$2K - In the 1950s, what country went through a period of "de-Stalinization" to ease the conditions imposed by its late ruler?

A - Soviet Union
B - Turkey
C - Austria
D - Egypt

Kerren says it sounds like "desalination" but they didn't get rid of salt in the Soviet Union.

$4K - The 2007 reality show "Age of Love" helped popularize what slang term for an older woman who is interested in younger men?

A - lioness
B - cheetah
C - cougar
D - tigress

Kerren is afraid to say that she watched most of the show and is afraid to say that she knows the answer. Meredith asks if she's one of them, to which Kerren replies, "Tony is in the audience" to general laughter.

$8K - Passed in 1993, the Handgun Violence Prevention Act is named after what member of the Reagan administration?

A - James Brady
B - George Schultz
C - Caspar Weinberger
D - Donald Regan

Kerren notes that this man and his wife have done a lot of good things and she's happy she knows the answer.

$16K - Often served with sushi as a palate cleanser, gari is a type of pickled what?

A - cabbage
B - mushroom
C - seaweed
D - ginger

Kerren hates sushi so she decides to ask the audience.

ATA results:
A - 7%
B - 1%
C - 34%
D - 58%


Kerren nods as Meredith reads the result. She thought it was ginger and she's glad the audience knows more than she does.

Commercial break

Kerren needs the money because her boyfriend would like to see the South Seas and she'd like to see them again. She would like to go to Bora Bora. She's always dreamed of it.

$25K - Founded in 1989 at Emporia State University, the National Teachers Hall of Fame is located in what U.S. state?

A - North Carolina
B - Florida
C - Kansas
D - Michigan

Kerren says that one answer leaped into her head before the others were revealed but she's not sure she can trust her head. She decides to do so anyway and makes "C" her final answer.

THE HORN!!!!!

Kerren will return tomorrow with 50/50, PAF and STQ available.

ANSWERS:
$100 - B (The Rockettes)
$200 - D (Apollo 13)
$300 - A (the Internet)
$500 - B (ante)
$1K - D (ears)
$2K - A (Soviet Union)

I really liked Kerren - she reminded me a lot of hermillion - upbeat, charming, just what a contestant should be.

I heard the term on "How I Married Your Mother". Is it really that recent?

I've been through Emporia, KS.

Kerren is off to a great start - with three lifelines remaining she should do well tomorrow.

Should this word be at all familiar to those of us who haven't seen this show? ATA for me.

Why is Meredith suddenly asking, "Why do you need the money?" This isn't Queen for a Day, dammit!

4K: Never heard this term before this show aired. Would have guessed "tigress" with no money involved, but on show would have ATAed.

otherwise good.
