LUCKY IN LOVE WEEK

Any couple answering the $5000 question gets a stay at Harrahs Lake Tahoe and lift tickets to a ski resort.

Beau & Colleen Bahnam
Las Vegas, NV


Beau & Colleen are going for $20,000, but they have no lifelines remaining.

$20,000: Designed by a company owned by Magnus Carlsen, the Magnus Trainer is an app that teaches you how to do what?
A - lift weights
B - play chess
C - invest in stocks and bonds
D - draw cartoons

Colleen is a fitness buff and Beau feels she would know if it was A, but Colleen says she really doesn't know. Beau feels that he should know this. Colleen asks if he knows anything about chess. He doesn't. Colleen associates "Magnus" with chess for some reason. Beau thinks "trainer" points to lifting weights. He says there's a "threshold of certainty" but they haven't reached it yet. Colleen would like to walk because any answer would be a wild guess.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (play chess)

commercial break
