Linwood jokes that he stays in the cheap hotels with a view of another room.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A (view)


$1000: In 2018, after neighbors reported hearing voices shouting next door, German police arrived to find a man arguing with his girlfriend's pet what?

A - crisped rice
B - barbecue potato chips
C - carrots
D - shards of glass
[Reveal] Spoiler:

Linwood brought Martin Kuntz, who won $20,000 last year. He gave Linwood one piece of advice - don't wear a sweater because it makes you look fat.

$5000: The surnames of the four main male characters may be well-known, but as of her Season 10 wedding, what show's lead female character's maiden name was still a secret?
A - Brooklyn Nine-Nine
B - Black-ish
C - Modern Family
D - The Big Bang Theory

Linwood brings on his +1, Martin. They focus on "The Big Bang Theory" naming Penny and Bernadette and saying they were already married, then they think of Sheldon's girlfriend, whose name they can't remember, but they do know that she's always referred to by her full name. Linwood decides to ask the audience.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Ask the Audience results:
A - 0%
B - 0%
C - 9%
D - 91%

Martin says that's the only one that's been on for 10 seasons. Linwood goes with the audience.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: D (The Big Bang Theory)


$7000: The main difference between DayQuil and NyQuil is that DayQuil does not contain what ingredient that causes drowsiness?
A - acetaminophen
B - an antihistamine
C - eucalyptus oil
D - citric acid

Linwood says that acetaminophen is a pain reliever so that's not right, and an antihistamine is what you want DayQuil to knock out. He doesn't get drowsy drinking orange juice.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (an antihistamine)

commercial break

$10,000: Ineligible to be called "Princess" as she has no royal heritage, Meghan Markle was given what tongue-twisting title when she married Prince Harry?
A - The Duchess of Sussex
B - The Marchioness of Merseyside
C - The Baroness of Bedfordshire
D - The Viscountess of Worcestershire

Linwood watched coverage of the wedding but can't remember what the title was. He thinks that viscountess seems right. He opts for his 50:50.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
"50:50 results": A & C

It's a good thing he used it. "Tongue-twisting" is the clue and he thinks C is harder to say, so that's his final answer.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A (Duchess of Sussex)

commercial break

MILLIONAIRE "QUESTION OF THE DAY": Before Clint Eastwood nabbed it, what singer was originally cast in the role of "Dirty Harry" Callahan?

I don't like this question, because I'm sure that she was always called Amy Farrah Fowler, implying, at least, that her maiden name was Fowler. But it is the only one of the four that has been on for 10 seasons.

The unnamed one is Penny, not AFF.

Didn't Penny get married before the 10th season, though?

She got married at the beginning of season 9.

That's what I thought. So the question is invalid.

No, it's not. Juch, as usual, provides his Google knowledge and knows nothing about the actual show being discussed. The wedding at the start of season 9 was a spontaneous one in Las Vegas. The gang watched a live stream of the ceremony. Penny & Leonard argued afterwards and spent the night apart. In fact, Leonard spent that wedding night with Sheldon.

Later, when Leonard's mom finds out they had married and not included/informed her, they decided to do a "re-do" ceremony, which would include all their friends and families. This wedding was in the first episode of Season 10.

The question was, "The surnames of the four main male characters may be well-known, but as of her Season 10 wedding, what show's lead female character's maiden name was still a secret? "

Since Penny had a Season 9 wedding AND a Season 10 wedding the question is valid.

5K: Focus on the year. Amy, whose full name we know, got married *dthis* year. But the other shows haven't had 10 seasons I don't think.
