$500: With federal resources not what they used to be, in 1993 the Smithsonian Institution began asking visitors to do what, for the first time in its 147-year history?
A - feed tour guides scraps from their lunches
B - handle locking the place up at night
C - donate money
D - bring their own dinosaur bones
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (donate money)


$1000: If milk is heated to 280 degrees for 2 seconds, then rapidly cooled, it will be 99.9% free of bacteria because it's just been what?
A - ultra-pasteurized
B - totes-dehydrated
C - pickled to the 10th power
D - supermega-offended
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A (ultra-pasteurized)


$2000: Which of the following is not one of the three supernatural beings found in the classic 1962 book (and 2018 movie) "A Wrinkle in Time"?
A - Mrs. Who
B - Mrs. Which
C - Mrs. Whatsit
D - Mrs. Whaaasuuuuup?
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: D (Mrs. Whaaasuuuuup?)


$3000: Though it hopefully doesn't just constantly repeat the word "Nevermore" as it does in Edgar Alla Poe's famous poem, which of these birds can be trained to talk?
A - hummingbird
B - bald eagle
C - raven
D - falcon
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (raven)


$5000: The first documented baby to have been born in Antarctica, Emilio Palma had a mother from what country -- the closest to Antarctica of these four?
A - Argentina
B - Colombia
C - Peru
D - Venezuela

Joni isn't afraid to admit what she's not good at, and that's geography. She wants to ask the audience.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Ask the Audience results:
A - 48%
B - 11%
C - 27%
D - 14%

Joni doesn't want to burn through two lifelines and 48% is pretty strong, but she isn't sure so she calls on her +1, her father James. He knows Colombia and Venezuela are in the north and Peru isn't right either.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A (Argentina)

commercial break

Joni's husband of 10 years is in the military and currently deployed. She wants to have the money for when he retires from active duty.

$7000: As the sole person who's at least 21 years old, as of today, which of these celebrities is the only one who could legally play blackjack here in a Las Vegas casino?
A - Jaden Smith
B - Elle Fanning
C - Malia Obama
D - Kendall Jenner

Joni is pretty sure Malia Obama isn't 21 and doesn't think Jaden Smith is, nor Elle Fanning. She doesn't know anything about the Kardashians or Jenners. She opts for her 50:50.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
"50:50 results": B & D

Joni guesses.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: D (Kendall Jenner)


$10,000: Which of these people is the most likely to be described as "risible"?
A - mountain climber
B - stand-up comedian
C - police officer
D - chef

Joni says these questions are harder than she thought they'd be. She says mountain climbers "rise", and stand-up comedians "rise" before the audience. She's afraid her brain is shutting down. She's between A and C. She goes with C.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (stand-up comedian)

commercial break

I don't know anything about the Kardashians/Jenners either, so I'll use my ATA.
