All lifelines have been used


$20K :
Though the channel's full name was dropped in 1985, when it launched on cable in 1979 the abbreviation "ESPN" stood for all but which of these words?
A: Eastern B: Sports
C: Programming D: Network

[Reveal] Spoiler:
A: Eastern


$30K :
The plant camellia sinensis is the source of all true what sold in the world?
A: Coffee B: Black pepper
C: Vanilla D: Tea

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Lincoln reasoned tea based on it sounding like chamomile


$50K :
Between the two of them, which of the following President/Vice President duos had a combined nine children when elected?
A: John F. Kennedy & Lyndon Johnson B: Richard Nixon & Gerald Ford
C: Ronald Reagan & George H.W. Bush D: Donald Trump & Mike Pence

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Lincoln ruled out D, and figured probably not A since JFK may only have had JFK Jr. by election day.
Was undecided between B and C, and leaning towards walking away, then it hit him that Ford was never elected.

C: Ronald Reagan & George H.W. Bush


First break

$100K :
According to the latest World Bank statistics, in which country do women live an average of 11.6yrs longer than men, the widest-known disparity of any nation?
A: Russia B: Japan
C: Mexico D: Italy


[Reveal] Spoiler:
Lincoln first considered Russia or Mexico based on possible shorter life spans of men, then decided to guess Japan based on overall high life expectency, maybe women hold that number up. Nothing to lose this time.


A: Russia

Lincoln leaves with $50K



Second break
