Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?

    My God are people stupid. Normally, I don't watch this but I fell asleep and when I woke up it was on.

    One woman had to drop out on a question that would have bumped her from $50,000 to $100,000. Fifth grade math. If y = 3x and 3x = 12, what is y? She didn't know even though the answer was right in front of her!

    Next woman goes out on one that would have taken her from $300,000 to $500,000. First grade world geography. (First grade!) Of the seven continents, which one is also a country? She names them all off correctly, thereby saying the answer, then drops out because she said North America is a country and ALL SEVEN were countries.

    by the way, most of those questions are not 5th grade questions. :D

    Great episode. Thanks for pointing it out. That guy was incredible, and his wife, being so supportive, couldn't have been any better. And cute, too. Too bad he knew the answer to the million-dollar question.

    Yeah! Chuck just was asked a few of them during sixth-grade summer school last week.

    That poker guy was really fucking smart... That nitrogen question was supposed to be third-grade physical science... Bullshit... That's high school level science at a minimum...

    Try thinking straight when a million smackers are staring you in the face.

    That guy was smart. You just can't risk that kind of money. If I was staring at $500K or another question in first-grade spelling, I'd take the money and walk too...
