Emily is going for $10,000. She's used her ask the audience and +1 lifelines.

$10,000: In addition to being the only team based in a city of less than 150,000, which NFL team is the only one that's a community-owned nonprofit?
A - Buffalo Bills
B - Green Bay Packers
C - Kansas City Chiefs
D - New Orleans Saints

Emily has a fleur-de-lis tattoo so she can't get a question about New Orleans wrong.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (Green Bay Packers)

Emily is relieved to get a football question right. She's a fan of the Texans, then adds, "anybody but the Cowboys, really." The audience groans and Chris says, "I was rooting for you up until then." Emily then says, "Fun fact - the UConn Huskies have more postseason wins in Cowboy Stadium than the Cowboys." The audience groans again.

$20,000: What key behind-the-scenes role in U.S. history was played by Stanley A. Dunham?
A - rescued William H. Taft from his bathtub
B - gave Abraham Lincoln his theater tickets
C - gave birth to Barack Obama
D - made George Washington's wooden teeth

Emily laughs at C. She thinks D is a myth. She uses her 50:50.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
"50:50 results": C & D

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (gave birth to Barack Obama)


$30,000: A stickler for details, Steve Jobs once called a Google exec to complain that what letter in Google's logo didn't "have the right yellow gradient"?
A - the first "o"
B - the second "o"
C - the second "g"
D - the "l"

Emily can see the logo and knows it has all those letters. She wonders why there would be a "right yellow gradient". She doesn't know and has no lifelines, so she decides to walk away.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (the second "o")

commercial break
