Mark is going for $7,000 with all his lifelines available.

$10,000: Thought to be the last surviving member of its on-board crew before his death in 2014, Werner Franz was a 14-year-old employed on what ill-fated vessel in 1937?
A - the USS Arizona
B - the Hindenburg
C - the Lusitania
D - the Titanic

Mark thinks the audience will be able to help him.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Ask the Audience results:
A - 3%
B - 49%
C - 26%
D - 22%

Mark thinks they're right.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (the Hindenburg)


$20,000: Which of these titles from Oprah's Book Club is missing the largest number?
A - "____ Little Pieces"
B - "A Tale of _____ Cities"
C - "____ Years of Solitude"
D - "The ____ Tribes of Hattie"

Mark isn't familiar with these. He thinks a "Million Little Pieces" sounds right, but also a "Thousand Years of Solitude" could be the one. He uses his 50:50.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
"50:50 results": A & D

That confirms what he thought.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A ("____ Little Pieces")

Mark knows it's either a cow or an antelope. He goes with antelope.

Mark wins $5,000.

I'm only familiar with B & C. I would use my 50:50 and hope.

That, and, in 1923, "Werner Franz" was likely to be born a German & the Hindenburg was the only German-owned vessel of the four.
