Owch!.. that's a tough one.... If this is like the "real" game, then you should be able to walk away.... that's what I'd do (unless, of course, I knew the answer), because then you could probably maintain bragging rights for a lllllllllooooooooonnnnnnggggggggg time:

Lee, you may want to re-check that. I know I got some questions correct, shouldn't I be credited with some money?

If you don't get to $1000 in the show, you get nothing.

No.

Do you not watch the TV show???... if you don't get the $1,000 question correct, you "win" $0.... you did not get to the $1,000 question.. either that, or you did not get it correct.

if he wins a million...he should get the name "Sports-Central Millionaire" instead of "Moderator" or just put both on there...

I feel like I should ship him something if he does. That doesn't mean I will!

K, I'm back from Florida, and will answer the question right after this post, while I think about it. It will be a complete guess.


Should I walk away, though, or go for it?

K, let's talk about this a little bit, get you guys where I'm thinking....

My first instinct was the Tour de France, but I'm beginning to think Wimbledon.....

Guess time....

Alright, I have no idea, so I want to keep the door open for somebody to still win "1 million" so I am actually going to walk away, and have the most "money" won here...yet.

If I had to guess, let's go with my first instinct: B, Tour de France?

Jared, you got 14 questions right, and got up to $500,000, but I am sorry to say that B, Tour de France would have won you the million. However, $500,000 is no small feat, and I may still send you something in return.
