    Purposely mess up the first few questions of round one to build up a deficit of more than $5000 (difference between your cash the computer's). If your deficit is exactly $5000, I'd blow one more question just be on the safe side. Now start answering questions. If you are having trouble, remember that you can pause the game and still see the question on single player games. If you still can't get it, go to an online crossword dictionary like oneacross.com.

    izret102The AI kept answering wrong when i was playin. I ended up hitting -8,500 and finally had a deficit of 5k$s overall.
    I ended up having one of the backup players take my podium. On the next question i answered correctly and took the player 2 AI podium and got the achievement.
