Barb has no lifelines left.

Yesterday Barb said she wasn't a gambler but she gambled twice. She's going to Gamblers Anonymous tonight.

$100K - Which of the following has never been a flavor of Ben & Jerry's ice cream?

A - The Full VerMonty
B - Dream a Little Cream
C - Makin' Whoopie Pie
D - Root Beer Float My Boat

Barb wishes she ate ice cream. She has heard of Cherry Garcia. It's been fun and unbelievable. She earned $50K for doing nothing. She decides to take the money and run.

ANSWERS:
$100K - B (Dream a Little Cream)

OK, time to bring out the lifelines (I would have used 50/50 yesterday). Ben & Jerry's is headquartered in the Northeast, so maybe the audience will know this one. As we watched elwing thought that "Makin' Whoopie Pie" was "too suggestive" for B&J so she thought that was the right answer.

Barb was one-and-done, but she did well.

I don't indulge in Ben & Jerry's, so I wouldn't have been any help. It's lifeline time for me, too; and this is one of those dreaded "which is not" questions.

In retrospect, "Makin' Whoopie Pie" is no more suggestive than "The Full VerMonty". And while it's hard to guess what flavors go into any of these, I suppose a cream-flavored ice cream is the most redundant. Wouldn't that simply be plain vanilla?

No, "cream" flavor is more, well, "creamy" than vanilla. They're distinct flavors.

Makin' Whoopie Pie was the only one of those B&J flavors I've actually heard of. I had it down to B and D, but would've picked D.

I knew C and D were flavors.

I picked the wrong one and woulda been wrong.

I elimated. D and C because I knew C was the one there to trick you. And then I was 50% sure the answer was B. I would no have gone for it though without life lines.
