I would be burning lifelines on this one, and was surprised at the answer. I thought "The Lion King" movie came out after 1998.

He couldn't figure out whether there's only ever been ONE Miss America who was Jewish vs. who was an American citizen? Sheesh!

How was he ever able to eliminate the ridiculous height & age?
