USF GRAD STUDENT WALKS AWAY WITH $25K

University of South Florida graduate student Will Capp was shown flubbing a $100,000 question on Tuesday's episode of the daytime game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, winning just $25,000 after incorrectly answering a question about a popular women's magazine from the 1930s.

The 41-year-old Navy veteran used all his "lifeline" aids during the questions leading to the $100,000 query, consulting the prime-time game's first $1 million winner John Carpenter on one answer. But a question about which popular women's magazine began in the 1930s as a menu leaflet handed out in A&P supermarkets proved Capp's undoing. He answered Good Housekeeping; the correct answer was Woman's Day.

Capp also was seated in the Tournament of Ten, allowing the season's 10 best players to compete for $1 million in November. He actually competed in the preliminary "fastest finger" rounds in the prime-time revival of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in August, but didn't get to play the game and was invited to the daytime edition by host Meredith Vieira. Capp's episode, filmed in New York last month, aired locally Tuesday on WTSP-Ch. 10.
