Heather would like to win enough to purchase a house.

Heather still has her 50/50 and PAF

C. Morocco
D. Brazil

$8K What TV series stars Rebecca Romijn as the cunning Alexis Meade, who was formerly a man named Alex?

Heather doesn’t have time to watch any of these shows, but feels confident enough to make “Desperate Housewives” her final answer.

Heather leaves with $1K.

$8K: No clue from me. I would've asked the audience.

Is she confusing Ms Romijn with Ms Sheridan of DH? I have seen Ugly Betty a few times and knew the answer.

I would have used ATA on the $8K. Otherwise,, no problems.

Houses are expensive in NY, I hear.

In "A Long-Expected Party", the first chapter of Tolkien's "Fellowship of the Ring", Bilbo invites 144 guests to a "party within the party" and during his farewell speech he uses "gross" to refer to the assembled hobbits, somewhat to their displeasure.

No idea, although from the safety of my recliner I guessed the right answer. I'd be using ATA on this question.

And it's a shame Heather didn't use one of her remaining lifelines.

The shame is that she wasted her ATA Friday on the "long-tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs" $500 question. The audience would have nailed this 8K.

8K: Well, I know it isn't Lost or Heroes. Remember reading about this on Ugly Betty, but am not sure enough. 50/50
