Let's recap the scores. Richard, Brooke in third place right now with 400. Bill and Alisyn, 590 in second place. Don and John commanding lead at 810 points.

Our last game is The Big Bet. Each team will get to choose from a group of four iconic events from the 1970s and I'll ask question that relates to that event.

During the break, the teams decided how much they want to wager. If they answered the question correctly, they earn the points they bet, if they get it wrong they obviously lose those points.

They'll have 15 seconds to come up with the answer and they can consult with their teammate. So you can consult with your teammates this time. You're allowed to do that. It's anyone's game. Let's get do it. All right. Let's take a look.

So Richard and Brooke you're in third place. So...

QUEST: What?

COOPER: You're in third place so you get to go first pick. Your options are the Patty Hearst kidnapping, the Iran hostage crisis, Nixon resigns and "The Godfather". Those are the four options you have to choose from. Which one do you want to choose?

QUEST: We're going to go with Iran hostage.


COOPER: All right. Let's take a look at some video.


JIMMY CARTER, FMR. PRESIDENT UNITED STATES: For all Americans, our constant concern is the well being and the safety of fellow citizens who are being held illegally and irresponsibly hostage in Iran.

The actions of Iran have shocked the civilized world.


COOPER: That was obviously President Jimmy Carter in 1979 speaking about the hostage crisis. In January that year, following violent protest against his regime, the Shah fled Iran and traveled initially to what country?


What country did the Shah initially traveled to?

QUEST: So better it was I think it is France.


COOPER: That is incorrect. I'm sorry.

BALDWIN: Was it Saudi Arabia?

QUEST: Saudi Arabia?

COOPER: No. The correct answer is Egypt. Initially traveled to Egypt, did end up in the United States. All right, let's take a look how much did you wager?

QUEST: Almost lost...

COOPER: Almost all of it, all right 399 points that takes you down to one point.


BALDWIN: We won. Number one.

COOPER: Whoa you're number one, you're number one. OK. Bill and Alisyn if the remaining events you are able to choose from the Patty Hearst kidnapping, Nixon Resigns or "The Godfather"?

WEIR: I think we're going to go with "The Godfather", one of my favorites.

COOPER: Let's take a look at the video.


DON CORLEONE, "THE GODFATHER: CHARACTER: What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you'd come to me in friendship, this scum who ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by some chance an honest man like yourself made enemies they would become my enemies. And then, they would fear you.

BONASERA, "THE GODFATHER: CHARACTER: Be my friend... Godfather.


Some day, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me. But until that day, consider this justice a gift on my daughter's wedding day.


COOPER: All right, that was the 1972 movie "The Godfather". Many different people were considered for the role of Michael Corleone one actor said turned down the role because the time he felt "Italian should be Italians.' He went on to win an academy award for best actor in 1976 playing an

Irish-American who is the actor?


Turn down the role of Michael Corleones saying Italian should be Italians. Who went on to win the academy award for best actor in 1976 playing an Irish-American?


Ten-second is done. Your answer?

WEIR: (Inaudible) complete blank.

COOPER: I need no more consulting.

WEIR: OK, all right. All I can go with is who is also on this one but it doesn't make any -- all I can think of is Robert Duvall, you know, that's all... COOPER: That's incorrect. The correct answer is Jack Nicholson. All right, let's take a look how much you wagered.

WEIR: We're number two.


COOPER: So we have Don, John, you are in the lead as of now depending on your bet you could still lose it all I suppose if you did something crazy. Patty Hearst Kidnapping or Nixon Resigns?

LEMON: He likes Nixon I like Patty Hearst it's, you know...

COOPER: Well you...

LEMON: We'll do Patty Hearst.

COOPER: OK. Patty Hearst Kidnapping it is. Let's take a look at the video.




COOPER: So that was the audio from the Patty Hearst in April 1974. After she was eventually captured Hearst was put on trial for armed robbery. Who is the well-known attorney who represented her for the majority of the trial?


COOPER: All right the answer?


Famous attorney who represented her.

BERMAN: That part I don't know.

LEMON: I think we -- we think its F. Lee Bailey.

COOPER: That is correct. How much did you wager? 371 points that brings up to 1181, you guys win the game. Congratulations, nicely done.

You are the winner, the Tom Joyner Foundation gets $20,000, $10,000 for Bill and Ali will go to UNICEF and Richard and Brooke you get $10,000 for Standup for Kids, all great causes.
