What color do you see when you Google? That is what the essence of the question tonight on “Million Dollar Money Drop”. The color of the capital G in the word Google just cost one couple a whole lot of money in paying attention to detail. Google is the most widely used search engine and people use it several times daily and judging by this couple, possibly not even watching the colors of the Google webpage.
Would you think that $200,000 is a lot of money? Most would think $200,000 is a wonderful bonus; but when compared to just losing almost 1/2 million dollars, suddenly 200 thousand does not seem as great. Add a few more questions to balance out and $200,000 is sounding smaller and smaller. Remember, just 30 minutes earlier that $200,000 was $1,000,000.
The fourth night of ‘Million Dollar Money Drop’ and something is really clicking with this show. Maybe its the real money, in real hands, or the suspense. Whatever it is, this show has something to offer for those tired of the same old game shows. Since this is just a short term event, it should keep its excitement. The internet world is abuzz for sure. With almost every question hitting hot searches, there are topics of conversation offered from this show on many social media websites.
Tonight the drama of balancing the money brought out strategies that had the couple reassuring themselves that $200,000 is still a lot of money. The host pointed out that they had just lost 60,000 in insurance money. One of the common strategies is to keep just a little money on an answer that is a solid runner up answer. Even if it’s lost, the ability to stay in the game. if the main answer is wrong. is appealing. The only problem with that insurance strategy is that it may promote a lack of confidence and prevent the continued focus on deductive reasoning in answering the questions, turning the focus instead to which is the best alternative answer. Taking the time to decide how much money to use as an insurance plan, takes away time from answering the question. The host, Kevin Pollack; will call it “testing resolve”. Other might call it double checking the answer.
Tonight, one question was, What is the Capital G color in the Google logo? Without knowing the answer, the couple placed their money on two answers. They talked it out and took a risk. What is interesting is the reaction to losing $460,000 (close to 1/2 million dollars); without a seconds pause they turned to each other, hugged, and said its okay,”that’s still a lot of money (referring to the $200,000 left).” Do you know the answer – if not just Google It.
