"Yes, I Want To Be a Millionaire"
by Randall L. Whipkey

The six contestants who appeared last weekend on the hit television program "Yes, I Want To Be a Millionaire" all failed to reach TV's big money jackpot. Each of the six missed a multiple choice question that would have doubled his or her winnings, with the six winning among them cash prizes of $1,000, $2,000, $4,000, $8,000, $16,000, and $32,000. From the clues that follow, can you solve the $1,000,000 Logic Problem by finding each "Millionaire" contestant's full name, the amount he or she took home, and the order in which the six appeared on the program?

  1. Winona won twice as much as Defarge did.
  2. Marie, Paul, and Yokum all flew from New York into Burbank, where the program is taped, for a chance at the $1,000,000.
  3. These three contestants appeared consecutively, first to last, on "Yes, I Want To Be a Millionaire": Jack, Grayson, and the person who took home the $2,000 prize.
  4. Bergman won half as much on the show as Albert did.
  5. Winona was followed immediately in the "hot seat" by the $1,000 winner, who was followed immediately as a contestant by Sanza.
  6. Paul was eliminated from the million dollar chase before he even got to the $16,000 multiple choice question.
  7. Linda's cash winnings were twice those of Wong, who immediately followed Linda onto the program.
  8. Marie missed an earlier question and never got to the one for $64,000.
  9. Jack and Sanza brought their mothers as guests on the set.
  10. Defarge's "Millionaire" appearance was earlier than Winona's.
