(correct response beneath the contestants)
We may have lost Alex over the weekend, but the show must go on. Alex wouldn’t want it any other way. Please, let’s remember him over the next seven weeks of banked episodes, and then afford him the same respect to his successors that we afforded him when he replaced Art Fleming in 1984.
|Greg Marrero, a school administrator from Huntington Beach, California
|Melissa Givens, a voice professor & singer originally from Buffalo, New York
|Ben Lewis, a data scientist from Costa Mesa, California (1-day total: $44,401)

Correct response: What is Pan Am?

As a way of demonstrating how iconic Pan Am was in terms of airlines in the 1950s and 1960s (as the world entered the jet age), the space shuttle in 2001: A Space Odyssey carried the logo of the airline, as the prediction was that by 2001, Pan Am would have led the commercial entry into space travel. It was the de facto American “flag carrier” airline, especially internationally, having been founded in 1927 to fly mail from Key West to Havana, having acquired the landing rights to the Cuban capital city from American International Airways. Essentially being shielded from competition in Latin America by the U.S. government, the airline was able to grow internationally. Unfortunately for Pan Am, the airline experienced a downturn in the wake of the 1973 oil crisis, and after attempts to keep Pan Am viable through the 1970s and 1980s, it filed for bankruptcy protection in January 1991. Most of Pan Am’s assets were purchased by Delta Air Lines. (Interestingly, “bankrupt in 1991” is not uniquely pinning for this clue, as Eastern Air Lines and Midway Airlines also went bankrupt in 1991.)
