Am I Smarter than a 5th Grader?

Well, I have been talking about doing it, and I finally did it. I just filled out the application to try to go on "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader." The odds of even getting on the show are probably not that great, but the odds of getting on if I don't send the application are zero! I'm heading out to the mailbox with it now. Wish me luck!

Barbara

Good luck! Most people on the show just don't have any confidence in themselves although there are some questions that if you don't have kids, can baffle. The spongepants Bob (???) question just had me guessing.

The odds of winning a house probably were not that great either. Best of luck when you get on the show!

LOL That same thought went through my mind as I wrote that!

Thanks everyone. If anything ever comes of it, I'll let you know.
