Ria Ali
Wellesley, MA

Now at $5000 with two lifelines remaining (50/50 and +1)


$7000 :

$10K :
If you order a McDonald's Quarter Pounder when you're in a place that uses the metric system, how much does your burger weigh?

A: 13.4 grams B: 31.4 grams
C: 113.4 grams D: 311.4 grams

[Reveal] Spoiler: 50/50
Ria said she is not well-versed on the metric system and was leaning either A or B, but 50/50 left C and D.
Ria said she could have used her dad as the +1, but she did not select him.


[Reveal] Spoiler: +1
The +1, Dan, BB ulysses1950, jokingly asked if Ria could switch him out for her dad.
Dan said he narrowed it to C or D before the 50/50, but that is what was left.
Dan said if he was going to risk it, he would go with C as his gut feeling.
Ria went with Dan's guess.


[Reveal] Spoiler:
C: 113.4 grams


First break

Ria said her day job is an attorney, but she volunteers to teach refugees English and other life skills that come up.

Ria walked with $10K

10K: Didn't we just have this? At the time I didn't have conversion info. Now do, I think.

20K: +1, hope they know.
