[dramatic music] ♪ [cheers and applause] >> hi, baby. welcome back. >> thank you so much. [cheers and applause] >> hello, everybody, and welcome to millionaire. today is a very special day for rishi bhandari. he's not only sitting at $63,500, just one question away from round 2. that in and of itself is fantastic. but there's another reason why today means a lot to you. >> [laughs] it's my birthday. >> it's your birthday! [cheers and applause] and i kind of knew that because behind you, your sister, and your da have on "happy birthday, rishi" shirts showing their support to you. >> thanks, guys. thank you. >> all right, so, rishi, rishi, what do you want for your birthday?
>> like, a million dollars? >> okay. that sounds pretty good. well, you're gettin' there. $63,500. you're still taking on round 1. you're five questions away from the million, one question away from round 2. at that point, you get to keep everything in your bank. and we know that this next question is worth $2,000. >> all right. >> are you ready? >> i'm ready. >> audience, are you ready? [cheers and applause] then let's play millionaire. all right, rishi, in the humor book yiddish for dogs, the definition of the word "putz" is given next to a photo of a dog wearing what? "putz." >> dunce cap seems like what you would give to someone who's a putz. >> [laughs] >> so it really does seem like it's gonna be "c." i'd just like a moment to make sure i'm not... >> a putz. >> missing something.
[laughs] yeah. exactly. i mean, it's the only guess i have, and i think it's one which i'm comfortable with, so please, i hope it's right, "c," final answer. >> it is "c," dunce cap. >> yeah! >> you're right. >> yes! oh, yeah! [cheers and applause] >> a lot of love over there. >> oh, my god! yes! yes! >> i've never seen anybody your height jump as high as--you do jump high. give me one more. it's like--like you're-- >> now, it's my next-- >> wow! that's really good. well, you have reason to jump. you are now in round 2. your next question will be for $100,000. >> oh, yeah. >> it is time to play classic millionaire. [cheers and applause]
now, rishi, you're now just 4 questions away from the $1 million. you have $65,500 in that bank. if you choose to walk away, you walk away with all of that money. >> all right. it's gonna be a good birthday. >> now let's take a look at your $100,000 question. [dramatic musical flourish] during the civil war, northern democrats who opposed fighting the south were given what snake-inspired nickname? >> i know that three of them are definitely snakes: copperheads, diamondbacks, sidewinders. [sighs] for some reason, copperheads is totally jumping out at me. and i don't know if that's because i know the answer or kn, in some strange reason, it's popped into my head. okay, so i'm just gonna think for a moment.
i mean... i go to down to $25,000 if i'm wrong. that's still a good birthday. >> it is a very nice birthday. >> yeah. >> $65,500 would be a little bit better, but then you're not gambling on that $100,000. >> so i don't like gambling. i could be wrong. i mean, the problem is, with the lights on and the pressure, i'm not sure if it makes me more confident than i should be or less confident. i wish i could be on this show a lot more so i'd know. >> we can't afford you. >> but...all right. i would be so, so happy with $25,000. i think that's an okay amount. i hope that this is right, though, and so i'm gonna say "b," final answer. >> mom, you can uncover your eyes. he's right. >> oh!
yes! yes!od, merediod, meredi oh, my god. >> we'll be right back with more millionaire. after this, it goes to $250,000. >> i'm so happy. thank you.

>> we are back with rishi bhandari, who's having one heck of a birthday here. $100,000. feeling on top of the world. >> feels so good. >> what--do you have any idea of what you'd like to do with the money? is--anything that you've thought about? >> you know, heather and i talked about it this weekend-- >> heather, your wife. >> heather, my wife. >> hello. >> and we just feel so grateful and lucky to be on this show. the only thing we didn't argue about is, we're definitely gonna be giving some to two charities
that we feel very strongly about. and then beyond that-- >> which is a wonderful thing to do obviously. >> yeah, so that was the--every other thing--there's flooring plans, furniture plans, travel plans--every other thing resulted in arguing, so we stopped talking about those. >> well, i don't want any arguing, okay? he's doing a great job. heather, you will agree he's doing a great job? >> oh, he's doing a great job, yeah. >> thank you. >> all right, so we're all in agreement on that. you now have $100,000, going for $250,000. you know at this point if you miss the answer, you go down to $25,000, or you can walk with what you have. are you ready? >> i'm ready. >> okay, then let's play! [dramatic musical flourish] good luck, rishi. according to italian author ruggero marino's theory, pope innocent viii is the father of what historical figure? >> okay.
so i know that most of the popes were italian, and so that takes out joan of arc. fortunately, that leaves columbus and da vinci. i believe gutenberg was german. joan of arc was french. [sighs] so i'm--feel pretty confident that it's down to those two. christopher columbus was from genoa. i wish i knew exactly when pope innocent viii was alive 'cause that would help...a lot. but they're both around the same time: christopher columbus, 1492; leonardo da vinci in the 1500s. so--oh, and popes are not supposed to have children, so is it probably not--got that. >> [chuckles] >> it's clicked. all right. it's a really good question.
i'm just trying to think if there's any way--you know, christopher columbus, you would think, a seafaring guy would be less moored to a place, and if his father was not around as the potential pope wouldn't have been, who would've--so i mean, i feel like if i had to lean, it would be in the direction of christopher columbus. but i don't feel like it's much more than 50/50. oh, god. does anyone ever have an these talking these things through? >> sometimes, yeah. >> all right, i will try not to waste everyone's time. if i could just maybe be quiet for, like, a few seconds and just think. [mumbling] christopher columbus... and if i have a 50/50 chance, it doubles to 250--more than
doubles, but i go down to 25, so i lose... [whimpers] i'm gonna feel so sad-- >> if-- >> if--either way, really, except unless i guess and get it right. that one makes me happy. but there are two things that'll make me sad: not guessing and getting it right, guessing and getting it wrong. i guess i'll be more sad with that, because $100,000 is so much money. um... oh, what do you think i should do? >> i can't tell you. >> don't tell me the answer. >> don't tell you the answer? >> don't tell me the answer. >> i'm not telling you the answer. >> just be like--should i go for it? be like, "do it." >> i think yfeel is right for yo you feel is right for you. >> okay. >> there's--i mean, look, if you guess it and it's wrong, you still go to $25,000, but you're at $100,000. >> yeah. >> you know, that's a lot of money. but if you guess it and you're right, and you think you have a 50/50 chance, then you're all the way up to $250,000. does that answer that for you or-- >> [laughing] um...
i think i'm gonna have to... walk away. >> final? >> just, like, a few more seconds. >> okay. >> i'm so sorry. >> that's all right. >> i'm so sorry. man, oh, man. all right, so i feel like i have a really strong feeling for "a," but i just know that i've talked myself into it over the amount of time you generously allotted me. so...it kills me. it kills me, but my final answer is, i'm gonna have to walk. >> final answer. >> final answer. >> it was... christopher columbus. [audience groans] but you know what? you didn't know that for a fact. and you got $100,000! >> yeah! thank you so much! oh, yeah!
thank you. thank you so much. >> enjoy it. >> thank you so much. [cheers and applause] >> and joining me now is phoebe search from edgewater, new jersey.

evil, we've got the devil in there, so that's 666. and my fourth graders would kill me if i didn't get this right. so i'm thinking "c," 333, final answer. >> you are as smart as a fourth grader. you got it right. absolutely right. add some more money to the bank. you're at $2,000. show us the money, please. another $100. $2,100. >> yep, good. that's awesome. >> making your way up the ladder to $1 million. >> you got it. >> "paring down" is the next category. what is the name of a new dieting program where participants are held accountable to their social network contacts by announcing what they consume? hmm. >> hmm. i have an instinct. it's got social network in it.
but i think... i think i'm gonna jump it just to be on the safe side 'cause i've never heard of any of these. and i want to keep what i've got so far, so i'm gonna jump it. >> okay. by jumping it, you don't have to answer. what were you thinking? >> i was thinking "tweet what you eat." >> let's see if you're right. "tweet what you eat" would have been the right answer--or is the right answer. okay, but you weren't sure, and the idea here is to keep in the game. let's see what you forfeited, though, by jumping over this question. [audience groans] oh, phoebe. i'm sorry. well, we well, we're gonna regroup. we'll be back with more millionaire right after this. >> no problem.
you still got two lifelines. you ready to keep playing? >> let's play. >> let's play.

"skinny-jeans tug-of-war" and "horn-rimmed-glasses-throwing" are two of the featured events in what annual "olympics" of style? >> well, i lived in brooklyn for quite a few years before i moved to new jersey, which is the home of williamsburg, where many of these kind of guys live, and i think it's got to be "b," hipster olympics, final answer. >> you paid attention when you were in brooklyn. >> i did. >> absolutely right. it is hipster olympics. okay, it's time to put some money in that bank. how much is behind this question? $3,000, okay. up to $5,100 now. just 9 away from the million. you still have a lifeline life. "quick bites." the father of an iowa boy who bit 11 students at his middle school told police that his son did it after watching what movie? >> [chuckles]
my suspicion is that if he was hungry, because he's biting, this is gonna have to have something to do with eating, so i am gonna go with "b," the hunger games, final answer. >> it's not the hunger games. it was twilight. >> [groans] >> oh, boy. it made sense to me. >> it does. >> oh, thank you, phoebe. such a pleasure. >> oh, thank you. >> good luck with those babies and all those kids too. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back with more millionaire right after this.

innocence, he admits that he and knox behaved oddly after the murder in this unforgettable and to some scandalous scene. he reveals he was angry at himself for having a foggy memory of the night of the killing because he and knox had smoked marijuana. sollecito also acknowledged they had no real alibi the night of november 1st except for each other. but then in october 2001, after spending four years in what sollecito calls hell, he writes he felt indescribable joy when they were finally acquitted. >> what's important for me to say is just thank you to everyone. >> reporter: in a private moment in the basement of the courthouse with knox, sollecito says she squeezed his hand and said she couldn't wait to see her home and friends. >> they hold something in common that very, very few people have ever had to deal with. linsey davis, abc news, new york. >> it's not clear where sollecito is living, but amanda

>> i think on a yacht. they were on holiday. >> way less scandalous. >> yes, ironically, france has some of the strictest privacy laws in the world, but they were taken again last week. underneath the caption, see incredible pictures of the future queen of england as you have never seen and never will see again. the headline says that photos that will go around the world. and another mag blurb says she was perfecting her tan and to avoid streaking tan marks, she took off her bathing suit. >> if it is true, i think it will be the last time she does that little trick. see if the pictures materialize. all right. monica lewinsky, the most famous white house intern of all time, meeting with publishers to write a tell-all book. and wouldn't that be interesting, huh? former white house intern meeting with major publishers all to sign nondisclosure agreements before they see her. an insider familiar with the project says every major publisher is interested. lewinsky and then-president clinton had sexual encounters which did not involve intercourse, but i am sure there
is plenty to tell what it did involve. lewinsky's rep said yesterday, i cannot comment on anything at this point. i'm sure the president is cringing right now, going, please don't write this book. >> what would you name the book? >> i know, right. you could have fun with that. >> you should send us e-mails or tweets, what we should name that book. >> i'm sure you could have some cheeky fun with that, right? >> slightly. oh, i have another one. was that your pause -- >> that was my dramatic pause. go! knucklehead. >> mitt romney is going to be on "kelly and michael" tuesday, september 18th. romneys will visit kelly and michael, producers of "live with kelly," and michael confirmed this. and yeah, going to talk about their life and campaign trail. the romneys first appearance on the daytime talk show since 2012 campaign started. should be interesting. >> they do a lot of goofy stuff. >> i think it's a good idea and i think they should be warm and fuzzy and goofy and put the politics on the back burner and just be open and real. >> which isn't mitt's strong suit.
>> being goofy and letting his hair down? >> yeah. warm and fuzzy, yeah. >> hopefully he will. a little bit of baby news. nick lachey and vanessa minillo, finally had their baby boy. his name is camden john lachey. he was born on thursday. 8 pounds, 9 ounces, 21 inches, they released a statement to "e!." they said love has truly been redefined for both of us. they revealed back in june they were having a son. i'm sure the baby is going to be beautiful. look. how can you go wrong with those two. and we reported yesterday that levi johnston and his girlfriend, welcomed their little daughter, named after a gun, breeze beretta, welcomed her earlier this week. he obviously has a second child with bristol pay lynn who's currently prepping for a return to "dancing with the stars" all-stars, and she sent some flowers, a nice little gesture
start new with new people. he risked his life to stop a tyrant, then gave his life trying to help build a better libya. as americans, we stand united, all of us, in gratitude for their service. i want to assure you we will bring their killers to justice. american leadership is necessary to ensure that events in the region don't spin out of control. think that everybody wants to remember 9/11, but we need to have our privacy too. the first responders who were there for us, we're now going to be there for them. we're going to compensate them. we're going to help provide treatment. we're fighting for dignity, respect and for a fair contract. how dare you guys stop school in session. how dare you do that to our children. what are you thinking about? not about them. >> the defenseman in lated that glove so that it did not appear
