Kiss Star Simmons Stumped By Science Question

Rocker GENE SIMMONS missed out on a big USD1 million (GBP625,000) prize when he was stumped by a kids' science question on hit U.S. quiz show ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?
The Kiss star wowed viewers and audience members with his general knowledge when he appeared on the show on Friday night (07Nov08), and quickly raked in USD500,000 (GBP312,500) in prize money.
But he chose to keep the cash rather than guess at what the letter K represents on the Periodic Table of Elements - and win a million.
As it turned out, he was wise to walk away - he would have guessed krypton and the correct answer was potassium.
Simmons will donate his prize money to the Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
