Joel McElvain, a resident of Washington, D.C., appeared on the November primetime series of WWTBAM on November 8, 1999, and won $32,000 in a bad way; he lost it on the $64,000 question with all three lifelines intact. He should've used the Ask the Audience lifeline when it came to that question because even if Joel's logic may be correct, the real answer could be different. Here is Joel's runthrough. Please enjoy.
