SECOND CHANCE WEEK

Steve Gadlin
Web marketer
Deerfield, IL


Steve reached the $5000 threshold yesterday. Previously he got to the $50,000 question but answered incorrectly and dropped to $5000. He has all his lifelines available.

$7000: The BBC says that thanks to the success of K-Pop bands like BTS and iKON, many colleges have seen an increase in students taking what language?
A - Kuwaiti
B - Korean
C - Kenyan
D - Kazakh

Steve knows what K-Pop music is.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (Korean)


$10,000: Of the following pairs of actors, which are the only ones who have played each other's love interest in only one film?
A - Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore
B - Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone
C - Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore
D - Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan

This is one of Steve's weak spots ("chick flicks"). He can think of one movie for each of these couples but can't think of a second one for three of them. He decides to ask the audience.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Ask the Audience results:
A - 9%
B - 19%
C - 69%
D - 3%

Steve knows that Swayze and Moore were love interests in "Ghost" so he decides to trust the audience.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore)


$20,000: When Kate Middleton gave birth to her son Louis in April 2018, it knocked her brother-in-law Prince Harry down to what position in line for the throne?
A - fourth
B - fifth
C - sixth
D - seventh

Steve knows the queen is zero, Prince Charles is first in line, his son married Kate, but he doesn't know whether it was Charles's first or second son; he then remembers Harry is the younger son. Kate can't be married to Harry if he's her brother-in-law. He figures out that Harry would be fourth. Having reasoned it out, Steve still decides to use his 50:50.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
"50:50 results": B & C

Steve says his calculations were incorrect, even though they were convincing. He wonders if William and Kate already had a child before Louis was born. He opts to call down Brian, his +1. This is not Brian's specialty, but he can help out. He does know that Louis has an older sibling.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (sixth)
Steve wins $5,000 plus a ride on the Linq Hotel Ferris wheel (with a champagne toast) and dinner at Martorano’s at the Paris Hotel.
Chris tells Steve that Louis had an older brother and an older sister.
