Game Show Pro Alex Outhred Wins Half a Mil on "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?"

Alex_outhredProfessional game show competitor Alex Outhred, who moonlights as a poker pro and instructor at the World Series of Poker Academy, became the biggest winner thus far on FOX TV's "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?" tonight, winning $500,000, which ironically would take the average 5th grade teacher about 124 years to earn.

Outhred, who we must say was a total class act on the show and rep'd poker players well, was just one question away from winning the show's ultimate prize of $1 million but opted not to go for the final question and instead walk safely away with the $500k.

Had he gone for it, host Jeff Foxworthy revealed that the million dollar question was: "Who was the first American Secretary of the Treasury?" which we would have guessed was a woman based on the profession alone but Outhred somehow knew was Alexander Hamilton.

Outhred's half a million game show cash is about 2.5 times more than his total winnings as a tournament poker player, which according to the fifth grader we just asked calculates to $200,000.

Outhred will be back on the small screen this May 16 when his final table appearance at the 2006 WPT Mandalay Bay Championship airs on the Travel Channel.
