Which of these president's was oldest at his death?

From "1 vs 100", the wrong answer cost this guy almost $100,000



Spoiler:
Ford, he died at 93 years of age

I was right, but had Ford not been from this area (meaning pretty excessive coverage) and the fact that his death was recent, I probably would have said Reagan.

Obviously odds are it is someone who is alive right now.

Maybe Clinton, maybe a 2 year old who will be President in 50 years.

I'm confused. Which President's what was oldest at his death? wife? offspring? cat?

Sorry. :P

Anyway, I didn't get it right.

Is someone producing new episodes of this show, or are they just rerunning the ones that originally aired on NBC?

Got it right, but I wasn't 100% sure.

I guessed Ford because I remember his death being in the news, he died after Reagan, but was president before Reagan. I only assumed he was older though.

I don't watch the show and I managed to see the episode where the guy blew the question. Ford had recently died also.

I voted "Reagen" but that's a tough one because Ford and Reagan were both 93 when they died.

You'd have to know their dates of birth and death, or just make a good guess to get it right. I know Ford died more recently but Reagan was so old when he was elected (oldest President ever iirc), and older than Ford.

When Reagan died, it was pointed out that Ford was older than him so all he had to do was live a minute longer.
