We're at the season finale of The Wall -- Karen and Lori, sisters from Portage, Michigan.
They were off to a good start in the first 2 questions of Freefall, but then zeroed out at Question 3. And then they got Question 4 wrong, which means they had to get Question 5 correct. No pressure there. Except Question 5 was a gimme, so they end up in positive territory with $10,011. That's 2 weeks in a row where the contestants almost didn't make it out of the Freefall round.
Lori goes 3 for 3 in questions in Round 2, but the red superdrop knocks off about half of their earnings, leaving them with $260,022 at the end of round 2.
The 4 green balls in Round 3 added $10, $100, $1 + $1 respectively adding $112 to their total. That's it.
Lori gets the first question right, earns another $1. Then she gets the 2nd question wrong and they lose $200,001, leaving them with $60,134.
And Lori gets the 3rd question right -- which was a tough question -- and they triple up and score big, earning $1.8 million.
The 4 red balls knock off another $400K+, leaving them with $1,410,024 -- and Lori tore up the contract sending them home with big money.
A positive ending to Season 3 -- but we probably won't see Season 4 for a long time.
It's still weird seeing the audiences on these "new" shows, that were probably recorded late last year or in January, with no masks or social distancing.
