Three teams in a row have their games ended when the captain rejects an answer, and then gives an incorrect one. One mistook the word mnemonic for pneumatic. Another thought 100 millions make a billion. In all the cases, they ignored the comments and prompting by the teammates who answered in the first place.
Ernie Avila, who was eliminated in game 88 by a terminator question, is the brother of Daniel Avila, who played for a total of $3.2 million and lost. Ironically, even though Ernie went home early, he took more cash than Daniel.
This episode features the only team that successfully won $2,000.000. Lauren Griswold won $810,000, David Juliano $800,000, and captain Phyllis Harris $400,000. As this is Super Greed, only seven questions were required, the eighth being worth $4,000,000. Each of the three declined to continue at that point.
John Epperson and Lisa Stigers, in game 82, become the first and only players in Greed history to win the Jaguar XK8's with cash. Only on one other occasion were the cars offered, and that time rejected.
In game 74, the $50,000 question is "What king of toy is a Radio Flyer?". It falls to Julian, who tells Chuck he was a gunner in the air force, and has flown many missions. He selects 'airplane' as the answer. Monique, the captain, says that she remembers the name on a kid's red wagon, but Julian seems sure of his answer, and she accepts it. It is wrong, of course, and the other members of the team are horrified.
Lisa Crosado, in Game 68, is a 'fit model', (someone who tries on clothes for size), and her $75,000 question is 'Which of these fabrics is a form of cotton?' The choices are: Rayon, Nylon, Lycra, Chintz, and Gore-tex. After a lengthy explanation, she says she is confident it's 'Rayon'. Jeff, the captain, reluctantly accepts, and of course, she's completely wrong!
All the questions in this episode are from the 1970's decade.
All the questions in this themed episode were on the subject of television shows.
In game 47, Michael Williams, a hairstylist, is asked the $100,000 question: What type of liquor is Chivas Regal? He says he was a bartender, so he is absolutely sure, it's a bourbon. He is wrong, it's a scotch, and his teammates are furious.
Brad's $50,000 question is: 'What does Lamaze class prepare you for?'. He had just discussed with Chuck, the fact that his wife is nine months pregnant and might be in labor at this very moment!
The only people to win any money on this episode, accepted cash from Chuck to play the Terminator, and challenge other players.
This episode, 'Tournament of Losers', includes two 'Million Dollar Moment' contestants, who are also losers. They each played for $1,000,000 or more, and lost.
In game 39, Lamarc's $100,000 question is: Where does a croupier work?
The choices are: casino, hospital, restaurant, orchestra, or art museum?
Chuck says "obviously, our question selection is random - we would never ask this question of a Las Vegas person. I wonder what it could be".
Lamarc answers 'Restaurant'. He did not pick up Chuck's hint. Captain Frank rejects it and answers 'Casino'.
As of 2/11/00, with his Million Dollar Moment win, Curtis Warren becomes the highest winning game show contestant of all time, with $1,400,000.
At the beginning of game 28, after the qualifying question is read, the first two contestants chosen are Bruce and Grace. As the wide angle camera briefly cuts in, each of them can be seen tripping as they walk out from behind the table to their positions.
In game 11, the qualifying question asked how many grooves are around the edge of a U.S. quarter dollar. Pamela Van Summern answered FIVE!, yet still qualified as the fifth contestant.
Staci Buckley, in game 11, gets the $100,000 question: 'What is the most common throw on a pair of dice'? She says '2'. A little thought would tell her there is only one possible way to throw a 2, and Michael knows better. Only problem is, he got it wrong, too! He said '8', instead of '7'.
David Underwood, in game 10, buzzed in and answered a terminator question correctly, but Chuck had not finished the question, so he was ruled out. Note: This prompted a rule change soon after.
On this show, Curtis Warren and Melissa Skirboll became the joint-highest money winners in TV gameshow history, with $410,000 each, a record they held for one day. John Carpenter won $1,000,000 on 'Who wants to be a millionaire', the following night.
This episode has the same team playing through the whole hour, and since they still are not finished, no prize money was given away. That is the only such occurance in the entire series.
