I was rooting for Daniel.

I'd have scratched my head on this one - no offense to our Canadian contingent but I've never heard of this. My guess from the comfort of my recliner was B, but I'd have gone with lifelines, starting with PAF.

I actually have heard of this song, so I would've been going for a quarter-million. :)

<sigh>

After three previous unsuccessful game show appearances (while so many of us are dreaming of just one), he's not willing to take 2 to 1 odds on a 50/50 guess.

You'll never see odds like that offered in Vegas, Daniel.



I had no clue about this, but my hunch was that "The View Up Here" was more likely a distractor about our friends to the north than a title they'd actually use. In this situation, I'd have gone for B.

And as I know you know, the odds are actually more favorable than 2 to 1. A correct guess gets you a look at the $250K clue, which may just be something you happen to know.
