Time for another episode of The Wall with Keaton and Taylor, Air Force members and recent newlyweds.
Chris congratulates them on the wedding that was "literally two weeks ago". Probably like more 9 or 10 months ago by the time this airs. Still no masks or social distancing.
Even more re-recorded voiceovers by Chris in this intro as well. Seriously, they can't match the audio levels -- that's just lazy.
Freefall didn't go so well after they zeroed out by Question 2, but then they got 3 really simple questions and ended up with $55,132. Getting $21 on that really easy Hunger Games question seemed appropriate.
Tribute to your fearlessness. Wow !! Talk about going overboard with praise for TV.
The Round 2 green superdrop gets them $200,112, bringing their total to $255,244.
Taylor is really long-winded when it comes to the decision making process. She just goes on and on.
She gets the first question wrong, and $10K gets removed from their total.
Since they doubled up for Q2 and Taylor it got wrong too, losing $125K. This is not boding well.
Keaton triples up on Q3 because why not, Taylor gets it wrong -- again -- losing $60,010.
The red superdrop zeroes them out bigly, getting $260,102 which easily wipes out the $60,234 they had left.
Round 3 starts off with a bang, getting $1 on the first ball, followed by $1 on the 2nd ball, followed by $1 on the 3rd ball and finally getting $100K on the 4th ball.
My dad wasn't able to make it to our wedding because of a medical issue, so I'm choosing slot 5. WTH ?? What does that have to do with choosing the number 5 ? Or was Keaton dedicating that particular ball drop to him ? It was just odd.
On the 1st Round 3 question Taylor says that 'My mother-in-law would die if I get this question wrong' -- and of course Taylor gets it wrong. Better start building the casket for the mother-in-law, she may need it soon. And just to hammer the nail in the coffin, to borrow a timely phrase, they zero out by hitting the million. Ouch !
On the second question, Taylor just rambles on and on -- and of course she gets it wrong. How do you not know the last line of 'Gone with the Wind' ? Let alone think that "After all, tomorrow is another day" is from 'The Wizard of Oz'. The ball drop is moot because they had $0, but if they were any good at this game they would have lost $100,001.
Question 3 was really easy if you know your history, but Taylor -- who is the one that is good at the trivia and pop culture between this couple -- and she hasn't got a clue. She actually says "1512 was a long time ago." No shit Sherlock. And of course she gets it wrong. Taylor goes 0 for 6 on questions. Yet another moot ball drop, but they would have lost another $200,101.
And since they zeroed out, they don't even bother with the last 4 red balls.
They're living in an RV. Trying to start a family (didn't they just get married ?). Need another car.
Chris actually tells Taylor that she played "a great game" -- no, she didn't. She sucked at answering the questions.
Taylor even acknowledges that she didn't get many questions right, but after rambling on and on and on eventually confirming that she signed the contract getting them $55,132.
Not really life changing money, but might get them that 2nd car after all (after taxes). Or fix up the RV.
But they really didn't deserve to get anything after that disastrous game, because they only got 3 questions correct of 11 questions.
-- total money earned with green balls: $180,336
-- total money lost with red balls: $2,085,326 (and it should have been even more since they bypassed the last 4 red balls)
Agreed, the questions weren't hard and they shouldn't have got anything.
Remember The Wall is all about "chance at massive winnings" and "people we love" -- still glad they got rid of the whole 'people who deserve money' from the early seasons. Still too much Lebron in the Intro.
