$500: Famous for their platform shoes and choreographed dances, what was the name of the '90s girl group behind hits like "Wannabe"?
A - The Spice Girls
B - The Seasonings Sisters
C - The Savory Singers
D - The Condiment Clan
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A (The Spice Girls)


$1000: Because being away from the job makes it hard to hide embezzlement, the FDIC strongly suggests that who be forced to take two-week vacations?
A - dog groomers
B - bankers
C - New Yorker cartoonists
D - monks
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (bankers)


$2000: You may smell like a baby koala the next time you catch a cold, because the Australian Koala Foundation says that due to their diet, they smell like what?
A - DayQuil
B - eucalyptus cough drops
C - vitamin C tablets
D - Vicks VapoRub
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (eucalyptus cough drops)


$3000: A recent Off-Broadway "remix", or hip-hop version, of what Shakespeare play featuring the two-faced Iago was advertised with the slogan "Moor Money, Moor Problems"?
A - A Midsummer Night's Dream
B - Romeo & Juliet
C - Othello
D - The Tempest

Heather says she should have paid more attention to Shakespeare in high school. She opts to ask the audience.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Ask the Audience results:
A - 21%
B - 8%
C - 45%
D - 26%

That's what Heather was thinking. She says the audience looks bright and colorful.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (Othello)


$5000: On what retro sitcom does actress Wendi McLendon-Covey often wear actual 1980s sweaters and pantsuits mailed in by the show creator's mother?
A - Fresh Off The Boat
B - New Girl
C - The Goldbergs
D - Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Heather can see Fresh Off the Boat in her head, but she's leaning toward The Goldbergs.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (The Goldbergs)

commercial break

$7000: What do the capitals of Nevada, Missouri, Oklahoma and Utah all have in common?
A - they were founded in the 20th century
B - they have populations under 100,000
C - they're all located at the same latitude
D - their names end in "City"

Heather names the capitals of each of the states.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: D (their names end in "City")


$10,000: FatSecret.com says if you're on a low-carb diet, you'll want to avoid which fruit, which packs a whopping 34 grams of carbohydrates in 1 cup of slices?
A - pear
B - banana
C - apple
D - pineapple

Heather doesn't think it's pear, and is leaning toward banana. Bananas help with leg cramps during pregnancy and also provide potassium. She'd like to save her lifelines, and feels that if she uses the 50:50 it will leave the two she thinks it is. She calls down her +1, her mother Joyce.

Joyce thinks it might be pineapple because of "slices". Heather goes ahead and uses the 50:50 to see what happens.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
"50:50 results": B & C

That makes the choice easier. They go for it because it's Vegas.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (banana)

commercial break

Heather just turned 40 and being on Millionaire was the first thing on her recently-composed bucket list.

$20,000: When MLB's Red Sox and Cubs won World Series after droughts of 86 and 108 years, what front office executive was credited with breaking two legendary curses?
A - Brian Sabean
B - Sandy Alderson
C - Billy Beane
D - Theo Epstein

Heather wishes her husband had been here as her +1 because he knows sports. She has no idea. Her 10-year-old son told her if it was a small amount she should go for it. Her 6-year-old daugther told her to act normal and think about the question. She reads the question and answers, but finds no inspiration. She'd love to go for it, but she'd also like to have the $10,000. She reads the answers again hoping that something will pop out. She's watched a lot of baseball with her husband. She knows the Red Sox are from Beantown, then decides to go for it, choosing A as her final answer.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: D (Theo Epstein)

commercial break

MILLIONAIRE "QUESTION OF THE DAY": "Cutthroat" is a popular three-person version of what game?

C - table tennis
D - bowling
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A (pool)

5K: 99 isn't set in 80s, nor is New Girl. Nor is Boat, I don't think. Leaves Goldbergs.

10K: I'd have gone out here on pineapple.
