He seems to think they'd have answered the last question differently if there was more money at stake...which defies all logic.
Actually, that makes sense to me. If you have more money at stake, you tend to think more carefully. I mean, 20 years ago, $20,000 was a lot of money. But now that we're playing for a possible million, it's not so much. If they had had more of their money, they probably would've taken more time to think about it.

My point remains, you can be "pretty sure" something would have happened, but you can't know 100%. Maybe they would have suspected a trick with so much more money at stake, and gone for the non-obvious answer. You can never know for sure. Even they couldn't, because their mental state after having lost $80,000 would likely be a lot different than when they "lost" $800,000. I'm just saying "remove all doubt". That's what they are doing. I don't agree with those who use your train of thought, but I don't agree with those saying "give it to 'em anyway". The show admitted their mistake on Question 6, and credited them the money into their game bank. There's still one question to go. So I don't know why I keep hearing people say the couple is owed any money.
