Sal Mecca of Middletown, NY left empty-handed on January 19, 2001 after blowing his lifelines on question 5. His run is referenced in Sopranos episode The Weight (2002) in which Tony Soprano (played by James Gandolfini) and Junior Soprano (played by Dominic Chianese) watch Sal llama out at $1,000 and Junior comments on how the 'poor prick' used up all his lifelines.

Sal returned on Zero Dollar Winner Edition on May 20–21, 2001, without getting in the Hot Seat.
