B. Jessica Lynch
C. Jessica Sierra
Aaron needs some help. Only 4/54 chose B., Jessica Lynch #42, Rebecca, an outdoor educator (elementary kids come to outdoor school, she teaches them about the environment). She says her sister's name was Jessica, and it was a big topic of conversation when she was a kid.
Aaron uses his second help. #50, and #42, Rebecca, are selected at random. #50 picked A., Jessica McClure, because it seemed more familiar than the other two.
With option C eliminated, Aaron sticks with his first thought, B. Incorrect. 5 mob members were wrong, 49 got the question right. Rebecca says she was really only 7 in 1987, so maybe she didn't really know after all. 49 mob members split $35,000.
New contestant from Las Vegas, Nevada, Chas Hale, builds satellites. Green shirt. Great beard.

5. At a reunion of celebrity brothers, whose table would need the most place settings?
A. The Baldwin Brothers
B. The Wayans Brothers
C. The Osmond Brothers
Chas asks the mob with his 2nd help. 2 remaining mob members randomly selected, one right, one wrong. A mob member must be honest about choice, but may be deceptive about why they chose it. #44 and #64 picked. #44 is a Mensa member, Darren Esman(?). He picked A, the Baldwin Brothers. Osmond, from Utah, good chance a lot of brothers there, but he thinks it's a trick.
#64, Debbie, a brain surgeon, says she doesn't know too much. She picked C because they were a name they recognized. Saget points out that she didn't recognize the Baldwins or the Wayans, which means that she must be spending her time on the brain.
Chas thinks there's more Osmonds than Baldwins. He goes C. He's right. There are 8 Osmonds, 5 Wayans, and 4 Baldwins.
23 wrong, $69,000 added to his bank. It's now at $159,600. Knocked out 1/4 of the mob.
Chas isn't much of a gambler, as everyone saw earlier. He takes the money.
