Sprint Round: Pam won the coin toss and decides to start this round.

Category: CELEBRITY

1. Actor
2. Born in 1956

She solves Tom Hanks with just two clues, which is a new record, at least for this round! The odds are strongly against Patrick here...












...it doesn't happen for him, so Pam wins the game for the ladies!

MASTER PUZZLE: The choices are ANIMAL and MUSICAL INSTRUMENT. She's more comfortable with ANIMAL.

1. Swim?- YES (254 possibilities)
2. Legs?- NO
3. Intelligent?- YES
4. Growls?- NO (179 possibilities)

At this point, she's thinking about making a guess of dolphin.

5. Long snout?- YES (27 possibilities)

She wisely decides to buzz in and guess dolphin, which was #2 on Mr. Q's list at this point. Some of the questions she didn't ask included if it's a mammal, if it had teeth, if you could pet it, if it lives out of water, if it jumps or if it can do tricks. With only five questions asked, she would set another record if dolphin happens to be right for the 20 grand. Is it?...















...YES IT IS FOR THE FASTEST $20,000 WIN TO DATE!!! With over $25K+ in cash and stuff and two records to her credit, she's definitely one of the best players so far on this show!

(Note: In later-taped episodes like this one, I think, the $20K screen on Mr. Q shines once it appears.)
