Kim Fravel
Trumbull, CT
Stay-at-home mom


Kim is originally from Tennessee. During the break she looked up and saw herself and couldn't believe that she's actually here. "It's amazing". She laughs when she's nervous - she laughed a lot at her wedding. Meredith asks her how things are now. She's still laughing.

Kim laughs when "clowns" is revealed.

A - Shrek the Third
B - Hairspray
C - Underdog

Meredith stumbles over "Kwik-E-Mart", putting the emphasis on the "E" (as in e-mail). Kim has an idea but she's not sure so she wants to ask the audience.

ATA results
A - 4%
B - 7%
C - 2%
D - 87%


Kim laughs when she sees the result. She goes with the audience's answer.

Commercial break

An on-screen graphic shows Kim as a stay-at-home mom.

The first thing Kim wants to do with the money is add a bathroom to the house. She has two boys and they spend a lot of time in the one they have. She doesn't know what they're doing in there; Meredith replies, "You probably don't want to know."

$8K - The chemical elements technetium, uranium, and plutonium all share what common physical property?

A - they are radioactive
B - they are bioluminescent
C - They are alkali metals
D - they are halogens

Meredith mispronounces "technetium" as "techneechium".

Kim studied to be a nuclear engineer. Meredith sounds incredulous. She changed her mind because she wasn't good in fluid mechanics. But she did well with the radioactive stuff. Meredith asks if she was exposed to radiation. Kim replies, "Maybe."

$16K - By definition, what does an alate animal have?

A - gills
B - scales
C - wings
D - fangs

Meredith pronounces "alate" as "a-late".

Kim's never heard the word so she decides to phone a friend. She wants to call TJ. He works with her husband in the EMC lab - she's never met him but he seems like a very nice guy. "I hope he'll be nice," Kim says. Meredith adds, "And smart, too." Meredith tells TJ that she's with "his old buddy Kim." Kim reads the question, spells "alate" then hesitates before
reading the choices. The call ends without TJ giving any answer. He was still nice. Meredith reminds Kim she has the 50/50, which she uses, leaving C and D. Kim still has no idea, so she decides to walk away. After the answer is revealed, Kim says that she was going to go with "D".

Kim laughed a lot, not only from nerves. And Meredith seemed to have lots of pronunciation problems - what's up with that?



$2K - If you know what "DL" stands for this isn't difficult. Evidently the term has a different connotation among some African-Americans; we have a columnist for the local newspaper who has spoken about this (it refers to African-American men having sex with other men but keeping it hidden because evidently there is less toleration for gays among African-Americans).



$8K - I always heard it pronounced "tek-NET-ium" but Merriam-Webster indicates that it's "tek-ne-shium", so Meredith wasn't as far off as I thought when she said it. And is radioactivity a physical property?



$16K - "Alar" and "alae" are oft-used words in crossword puzzles, so this was easy. Again, Merriam-Webster indicates it's pronounced with the emphasis on the first syllable - "A-late", instead of "a-LATE".

16K: No friggin' idea. Thought it *wouldn't* be wings, as "I'd know that". Uh huh. PAF a Googler.


Hey, all, how do you turn *off* the italics once you've onned them? Normal "off" methods don't seem to be working, so I'll stick with my old nerdly pre-web-days emphasis stars.

re ear's comment:

I'm not a crossworder, but words like "aileron" should have clued me. Didn't, though. Diff spelling & all.

$2K - The slang phrase "on the DL" is often used as a substitute for which of these adjectives?

A - beautiful
B - secret
C - cheap
D - difficult


I couldn't recall what DL stood for. Might have burned the ATA here.


$16K - By definition, what does an alate animal have?

A - gills
B - scales
C - wings
D - fangs


And I can't recall hearing this term, either, so there goes the PAF. And which search engine to use here is important. Merriam-Webster provides the definition easily enough, but Google interpretted "alate" as the equivalent of "a late" which returned lots of completely useless hits.
