** '''You'd Expect:''' The contestant to realize she is ''[[EasierThanEasy literally asking him how many feet he has]]'' (Ellen is fond of using RedHerring questions like this in games played on her daytime talk show, such as Know or Go, where the actual question is often only vaguely relevant to the first half of it).
** '''Instead:''' The contestant overthinks it, talking out the question as "how many inches do you have?", and responding with "36 inches". When Ellen points out his flawed logic, he then answers with "3 feet".

* ''Series/LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple'' has had its share of bad player choices, the most {{egregious}} examples being in the climactic Temple run. In this series of rooms, the players are met with various challenges such as assembling a 3-piece statue, pressing an actuator, or finding a hidden key to move on to the next room, and three random rooms have Temple Guards that take away their pendant of life or remove them from the temple. Once a contestant reaches the episodes' [[MacGuffin Artifact]], all the doors are unlocked and the guards vanish. \\
