Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Who was the original host of the game show "1 vs 100"?

Answer: Bob Saget

Bob Saget hosted the original version of "1 vs 100" which aired on NBC from 2006 to 2008. Game Show Network aired reruns in 2009, then revived the show with a new version in 2010 hosted by "Dancing With The Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba. That version aired until January 2011 when Carrie Ann opted not to return as host.

The game involved pitting a player against 100 other players known as "The Mob". Players answered a series of multiple choice questions. Anyone missing a question was eliminated.

The single player "The 1" had several options available with regard to the Mob.
2. Which of these is the correct term for a person who has lived to be at least one hundred years old?

Answer: centenarian

The word "centenarian" is derived from the Latin. Its root "cent" is a general Latin root meaning 100. It can be either an adjective (as in "He lived a centenarian life") or a noun (as in "George Burns became a centenarian shortly before his death"). Related words like "century" (for 100 years) and "centennial" (for the 100th anniversary of anything) have the same Latin derivation.

A "centurion" was an officer in ancient Rome who commanded an army of 100 men.
3. What singer-songwriter scored a top 15 country hit with a song called "One Hundred Children"?

Answer: Tom T. Hall

According to the Billboard "Book of Top 40 Country Hits", Tom T. Hall's "One Hundred Children" entered the Country chart on January 9, 1971 and peaked at number 14. Prior to that he had scored his first number one single ("A Week In A Country Jail"). Most of his songs were stories, many based on personal experiences, thus earning him the nickname "The Storyteller".

He would go on to have six number ones himself, plus a song he wrote called "Little Bitty" that Alan Jackson took to the top spot in 1996.
4. True or False: The boiling point of water at sea level is 100 degrees Celsius.

Answer: True

Celsius (or Centigrade) is the metric measurement of temperature. Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the common unit of measurement in the US. The term "Celsius" was coined in honor of a Swedish astronomer named Anders Celsius. That term was adopted in 1948 to replace Centigrade. Anders developed the 0 to 100 scale in 1742 after conducting several experiments with water.
5. Who starred in a late 1960s TV series called "The Second Hundred Years"?

Answer: Monte Markham and Arthur O'Connell

"The Second Hundred Years" was a quirky comedy about a man, played by Monte Markham, who was literally frozen in time thanks to a glacial avalanche in Alaska. When he thawed out 67 years later he looked exactly as he had before but it was a much different world.

His son was played by veteran character actor Arthur O'Connell. The story lines centered around the younger appearance of Markham's character in contrast to O'Connell's. The show aired only one season, from September, 1967 to March, 1968.
6. What two countries were adversaries in the Hundred Years War?

Answer: England and France

The Hundred Years War was actually a series of wars spanning 116 years from 1337 to 1453. They began as a result of dispute between the rulers of England and France over who had the right to rule Gascony, Flanders and Scotland. Much of the conflict arose from the intertwining of families between the two nations, leading to disputes over rule.

The full conflict consisted of three shorter wars: The Edwardian War, The Caroline War and The Lancastrian War.
7. What pop artist or group had a hit song called "100 Years"?

Answer: Five For Fighting

Five For Fighting is actually the stage name of one artist: Vladimir John Ondrasik III. "100 Years" peaked at number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2003 but reached number one on the Adult Contemporary chart and was certified platinum. The name Five For Fighting was drawn from ice hockey--a five minute penalty for fighting. Ondrasik is a big hockey fan.

He released his first album "Message for Albert" in 1997.
8. I want to cash in 100 pennies, but the bank made me put them in rolls. How many rolls do I need?

Answer: two

A bank roll of pennies contains fifty, so two rolls would be required. The bank will weigh them to confirm they are full. My credit union requires my account number to be written on the roll even if I am not depositing it. The rules vary with every institution but the basic procedure is the same.
9. What Roman numeral represents one hundred?

Answer: C

M=1000 V=5 L=50 In the Roman numeric system fractions were represented either by a symbol sometimes accompanied by the letter "S" or a Latin word. Although the Roman numeric system has been replaced by the Hindi-Arabic number system Roman numerals are still employed in various ways to designate rulers, Popes, copyright years on movie credits and name extensions for third generations and beyond (i.e. Hank Williams III for Hank Williams the Third).
10. What company made the "100 Grand" candy bar?

Answer: Nestle

Nestle's 100 Grand bar contains chocolate, caramel and crispy rice. Created in 1966, the original name of the candy bar was the "$100,000 Bar". The name was inspired by a game show called "100 Grand". Nutritionally it is low in cholesterol and sodium but high in sugar and saturated fat. Noted radio DJs Opie and Anthony promoted a contest promising to give away "100 Grand", leading many listeners to believe it was a big cash prize.

At the end of the contest the winner was informed that the prize was the candy bar! Nestle sold US confectionery to Ferrara SpA in 2018.
