SECOND CHANCE WEEK
Anyone correctly answering the $5000 question gets a private cabin and champagne toast on the high roller observation wheel at the Linq Hotel and dinner for two at BLT Steak.

Sara Lehmann

Last time she reached $30,000 but missed on a question that her +1 would have known.

$500: The San Diego Zoo says that if you're trying to tell them apart, the most obvious difference between butterflies and moths is that butterflies have wha?
A - long, smooth antennas
B - rock-hard six-pack abs
C - Macs, not PCs
D - pretentious British accents
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A (long, smooth antennas)


$1000: In a centuries-old U.S. Navy tradition, "pollywogs" are ceremonially hazed by more experienced sailors the first time they sail across what famous line?
A - the conga line
B - the offensive line
C - the buffet line
D - the Equator
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: D (the Equator)


$2000: Game designer Leslie Scott created the prototype for which game using wooden blocks that her family bought from a local sawmill while living in Ghana in the '70s?
A - football
B - Go Fish
C - Jenga
D - tag

Sara says she's terrible at that game.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (Jenga)


$3000: Most likely because they're less common than the others, a recent study found that cars of what color tend to depreciate in value the least over time?
A - white
B - yellow
C - silver
D - black

Sara says she sees white cars everywhere she goes.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (yellow)


$5000: Though Jay Leno reclaimed his old job shortly afterward, which current late-night star hosted NBC's "Tonight Show" for about 8 months in 2009 and 2010?
A - Stephen Colbert
B - Samantha Bee
C - Conan O'Brien

$7000: Besides Q, which letter is the only one NOT to appear in any of the official two-letter state postal codes currently used by the U.S. Postal Service?
A - B
B - Z
C - Y
D - J

Sara knows there's a Y in New York and a J in New Jersey. "Alberta" isn't a state. She says, "of course it's Z" and makes that her final answer.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: A (B)

After Chris tells her there's a Z for Arizona, Sara says, "I drove through there on the way here"

After the Thousandaire, Chris says “See you next time,” as usual, but we won’t! :(
