* February 2008: the American version aired a pop culture-themed episode and brought on a contestant who claimed to be a pop culture buff. He was asked which movie—The Simpsons Movie, Spider-Man 3, or Superbad—had fittingly premiered in Springfield, Vermont.\\

You'd Expect: The guy knows The Simpsons takes place in a town called Springfield, and goes with The Simpsons Movie.\\
Instead: He leaned towards Superbad; he Polled the Mob about it, and found that only three of them had chosen it. Still unsure, he Asked the Mob; the two Asked members had chosen Simpsons and Superbad, which ruled out Spider-Man 3.\\
You'd Then Expect: The contestant figures Simpsons is correct, since only a few Mob members chose Superbad.\\
Instead: STILL unsure, he wasted his one remaining help by Trusting the Mob. He moved on and got a sneak peek at the next question—it was about Patti Scialfa, whom he had never heard of before.\\
You'd THEN Expect: The contestant takes his stupidly earned money and leaves.\\
INSTEAD: He kept going, despite having no helps and knowing nothing about the question's subject.\\
FINALLY: The question asked which musical artist Scialfa used to sing back-up for. The correct answer was Bruce Springsteen, but the contestant ruled him out and chose someone else, thus leaving the show with nothing.\\

Contestant's "Justification": He didn't know anything about Springsteen's backup singers, so he decided it couldn't be him. That was literally his reasoning.

** One for the One: The very first One on the American version to lose to the Mob got handed a question that he used both of the Helps that were allowed at the time on it. At this point in the game, about half of the Mob was still around, including [[Series/{{Jeopardy}} Ken Jennings]]. The first help, "Poll The Mob", had only '''4''' players picking the answer he asked about, and Jennings wasn't one of them.
'''You'd Expect''' For him to realize that at this relatively early stage, FourIsDeath, and the answer they chose is clearly wrong.
'''Instead''' He uses his other Help, still thinking that answer. This can be somewhat justified, but...
'''This Results In''' The second Help, "Ask The Mob", picks two members, one who had the correct answer, and, as it turns out, one of the [[FourIsDeath 4 players who gave the answer he polled about earlier.]] They have to be honest with which answer they chose, but can be deceptive about why. This knocks out the other incorrect answer, by the way.
'''You'd Expect''' For him to get it right. There is really no reason to trust one of the four at this point when everyone else said the other one.
'''Instead''' He locks in the answer the 4 players chose, because that was "his first instinct."

'''The result'' To not many people's surprise, he gets it wrong, and loses the entire game alongside the "fantastic four" plus one other person who had given the other wrong answer, losing his money to the Mob and Ken Jennings, who all got it right.

* {{Padding}}: Not as much as ''DealOrNoDeal'', but still there in the NBC version.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: One of the questions was "Which one of these celebrities has never been charged with a DUI?", with LindsayLohan being an answer. The correct answer was Lindsay Lohan, as the episode was taped before she was charged.

** The GSN version ("Season 5") has smaller prizes, the Mob being turned into just a video wall, and people thinking Carrie Ann's just as screamy as the ''contestants''.
*** The smaller prizes and video wall were an unfortunate but necessary change, considering GSN doesn't have nearly a big enough budget to offer $1,000,000 prizes and the original NBC set took up multiple sound-stages. Why, though, GSN went for the Americanized walk-away format instead of the original European all-or-nothing format, I'll never know. Nobody (besides that dumb woman who walked with $100) is ever going to be tempted by anything but the largest prizes.
