Are You Smarter Than…Anyone?

Melissa and I both really enjoy watching TV shows together.  One that we’ve watched off and on is Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader.  A couple on nights ago we watched a recent episode that we had on our DVR when a woman actually made it to the million dollar question and went for it, risking $475,000 on the one question.   Melissa commented that she wouldn’t risk that even if the category was “Christianity” or even “Melissa Sandel.”  The girl on the show is working on her Phd in neuroscience so you’d think she might be pretty geeky or awkward but she seemed like a fairly nice, normal girl.  (In case you still want to watch it, I won’t tell you what happened.) 

They also occasionally do Celebrity episodes and a little while back they had a girl on named Kellie Pickler (I think she might be from American Idol).  She came across as a nice enough girl but she is the personification of a blonde if I’ve ever seen one.  Check out this clip of her thought process as she tries to remember what country has Budapest as its capitol.  I know there is a lot of pressure on these shows but this is just sad.  I feel sorry for whatever charity she was representing.  It is a good thing she had a 5th grader to cheat off of.  Yikes!
