ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK: On the last question of the night on "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?", reigning Miss Plus USA Lacreshia Witcher and student Bryce both didn't take their time and missed a simple math question- would the three digits of 768 add up to 22 or not? Both said True, but the numbers add up to 21, causing her to be the season's first Total Flunk Out.

Dishonorable Mentions:
1. $16,625 on second guess in Wednesday's One Away on "The Price is Right"
2. Current "Jeopardy!" champ Carl Brandt saying "Who is Jesus Christ?" on the category Three Letter Words
