• C: John Kennedy Toole - 5% • D: Marjorie Rawling - 9%
Immediately after the choices came up, Allen used his Phone-a-Friend lifeline to call his friend, Betty. She didn't give an answer within the 30-second limit, so Allen polled the audience. Even after looking at the large majority, he walked away with the $250,000. The right answer was indeed A: Harper Lee. I, myself, would've trusted the audience and seen the million dollar question with no lifelines left if I were Allen. That was not a good choice to walk away after seeing 80% of the audience choose the right answer.
