Clay appeared during sweeps week in a celebrity edition of the show. All celebrities were guaranteed $25,000, but try to win up to $1 million.
Each contestant is given eleven questions to answer correctly to win the million. It was no surprise to see Clay answering correctly for the first nine questions. He chose to walk away when Clay had some hesitation about the tenth question. He walked away with $300,000 for the Bubel-Aiken Foundation. Clay commented that the money would fund 30 summer camps in 2008.
Clay did very well. The following are the amounts won by all the celebrities during the week.
Clay Aiken 350,000
Miss America 2007, Lauren Nelson 175,000
Tony Hawk 175,000
Regis Philbin 175,000
Kellie Pickler 50,000
Billy Bush 25,000 (guessed and was wrong on the 300K question)
Sit back, get a glass of wine and watch the fun videos that show Clay on the show. The videos were put onto YouTube by some of Clay’s great fans from Japan. You will notice that there are small subtitles on the videos. Isn’t it nice that Clay has fans from all over the world that want to participate in everything he does? Thanks, ladies for the videos.
