Andrew Bratsman
Houston, TX
first year medical student


Andrew's wife is pregnant with their first child; they will find out the baby's sex next week. He's going for $20,000 with his 50:50 and +1 (his mom) lifelines still available.

$20,000: Which of the following is NOT one of the four words abbreviated in the common internet acronym HTML?
A - hyper
B - text
C - media
D - language

Andrew wishes he had paid attention in high school. His first thought was hyper so he feels good about that. He thinks using his 50:50 will make it a little easier.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
"50:50 results": A & D

He thinks hyper might refer to hyperlink or hypertext. He practiced the game before and his wife gave him a chocolate chip every time he got a right answer. He goes with his gut.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (media)

Chris says the "M" stands for "markup".

so far so good.

I understood contestant to say it *wasn't* hyper that was wrong. Then he went for it anyway.

I assume those weren't the actual 50-50 results. --Bob
