Kipper Schauer
Asheville, NC
Trivia night host and wedding DJ


Kipper has reached the $5,000 threshold and has used his +1 lifeline.

$7000: Because they were losing teeth at different rates, the twin actresses who traded off playing what "Full House" character wore dentures on the show?
A - Stephanie Tanner
B - D.J. Tanner
C - Michelle Tanner
D - Danny Tanner

Kipper's wife is a big fan of the Olson twins.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (Michelle Tanner)


$10,000: If the Scottish duo The Proclaimers had used the metric system instead, they would have sung what in their song "I'm Gonna be (500 Miles)"?
A - "I would walk 563.3 km"
B - "I would walk 643.7 km"
C - "I would walk 724.2 km"
D - "I would walk 804.7 km"

Kipper says this will require a little math and hopes he can reason it out without a lifeline. He says that looking at a speedometer, when driving 60 mph that's 100 km, so it's less than 1000, and the largest number is D. He feels like that's the answer.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: D ("I would walk 804.7 km")


"Kipper" is a nickname, but he's also called "Tasty Shoes" because he ends up with his foot in his mouth. He got stopped at a border checkpoint in Arizona and struck up a conversation with the border guard, who asked him if he had anything illegal in the car. "Not any more," Kipper replied.

$20,000: Placed on a commemorative coin to celebrate the U.S.'s 150th year of independence, who is the only president to appear on U.S. currency while still alive?
A - Franklin D. Roosevelt
B - Herbert Hoover
C - Calvin Coolidge
D - Warren Harding

Kipper is really bad with presidents. He wants to look around at the audience, hoping that they may know more about coins and presidents than he does. He decides to ask them.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Ask the Audience results:
A - 39%
B - 23%
C - 23%
D - 15%

Kipper isn't one to disagree with the audience and if he gets it right, they are all getting high fives. He goes with their answer.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (Calvin Coolidge)
Kipper wins $5,000.

Sorry, Kipper, but that's not putting your foot in your mouth. That's being a moron.

20K: Add 150 to 1776 (or thereabouts) & try to figure out who was Pres. Was not FDR. Hoover just misses it. 50/50. If leaves Harding & Coolidge, +1.

Harding died in office and Coolidge took over.

My grandfather made the same faux pas at the border that the contestant made, only worse. "Anything illegal? Oh, just the ten pounds of heroin in the trunk." He was kidding, of course, but he was detained for hours while they searched the car. And this was long before 9/11.

The 150th anniversary would be 1926. FDR hadn't been elected yet.
