This edition of the DAotW takes us back to a moment from an October 2012 episode of "Millionaire" that defies logic.

Here's our newest contestant thrown out of the frying pan and into the fryer, New Orleans native Nikki Junda. Let's see her first question.



Not too difficult of a question, really. Just take your time, reason it out, and you should be fine.

Well, that's what you or I would do. Listen to how Nikki handles this math question.

Nikki Talks it Out



Oh boy. Maybe she had two too many six packs before coming onto the show.

It takes 17 six packs to get at least 99 bottles of beer on the wall.

So, Nikki is one and done and leaves with $1,000 and the distinction of being one of the unfortunate few individuals to miss the very first question they face on "Millionaire".

But, let's look at the positive! Nikki's bubbly personality and math skills would be perfect for another number oriented game show!

And that does it for this Dumb Answer of the Week. Until next time, Stay Numberwang!
