HAPPY COUPLES WEEK

Brian Ruppenkamp & Ana Valverde
Sherman Oaks, CA


Their first date took place at a trivia night. It went very well, so this is destiny.

$500: Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017, George Balanchine's ballet triptych "Jewels" includes acts with all but which of these names?
A - emeralds
B - rubies
C - diamonds
D - tacos
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: D (tacos)


$1000: A Google Survey conducted by Mic.com found most 18-to-34-year-olds don't meet their significant other via a dating app, but instead meet them through what?
A - an arranged marriage
B - mutual friends
C - their prison work release program
D - "The Bachelor"
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (mutual friends)


$2000: FDR advisor Harry Hopkins is considered the chief architect of the landmark federal economic reforms commonly known as what?
A - The Big Deal
B - The New Deal
C - The Real Deal
D - The Combo Meal Deal
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (The New Deal)


$3000: In 2005, Nepalese couple Moni Mulepati and Pem Dorjee Sherpa became the first people ever to get married where?
A - in outer space
B - underwater
C - on top of Mount Everest
D - on television
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (on top of Mount Everest)


$5000: Coincidentally, what star who's battled LeBron James in the NBA Finals 3 years in a row was born in the very same Akron, OH, hospital, 3 years after LeBron was?
A - Kawhi Leonard
B - Russell Westbrook
C - Stephen Curry
D - James Harden

Ana only recognizes one of the names up there and asks Brian if any of the names say "basketball". He's not a watcher or a fan but one name is sticking out to him.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (Stephen Curry)

commercial break

MILLIONAIRE "QUESTION OF THE DAY": Popular during Victorian times, a "tussie-mussie" is an ornamental vessel that holds what at a wedding?
A - flowers
B - rings
C - wine
D - gifts
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A (flowers)


$7000: You'll be seeing red, literally, when you cook what tomato-and-chili pepper-based sauce whose name is Italian for "angry"?
A - arrabbiata
B - primavera
C - marinara
D - carbonara

Ana is happy with this question because she took Italian for a year and she also speaks Spanish. "Primavera" means spring, but Ana doesn't know what "marinara" means but thinks it's a meat sauce. "Arrabbiata" sounds like the Spanish "rabia" or "angry". Brian asks if Ana is "$7000 confident" in the answer; she says she is.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A (arrabbiata)


END OF SHOW "NOISE"

Brian and Ana will come back on Monday to finish their run up to the million.

5K: Thought Curry was more than 3 years younger, but guess him anyway.
