As you all know, in February of 2007, an email was posted on www.snopes.com saying that a 32-year-old mother of two, Kathy Evans, appeared on the syndicated version of WWTBAM with Meredith Vieira as the host, and was dumb enough to deliberately lose on the $100 question. What I'm about to do is to show you what could've happened if Kathy's "losing fame" aired on TV. Here it is.
Kathy's Run to the Million Edit
|$100 (1 of 15) - Not Timed|
| Which of the following is the largest? |
'50:50', 'Phone a Friend', and 'Ask the Audience' lifelines used
|• A: A Peanut||• B: An Elephant - 2%|
|• C: The Moon - 98%||• D: A Tennis Ball|
|After Kathy used 50:50, she used her Phone a Friend to call Betsy, an office assistant. She said it was C: The Moon; in reply, Kathy denied that she was right.|
