toUpperCase not working

My code works fine until I add in the toUpperCase method. Can you let me know why?

var q1 = prompt("What is Elvis's last name?"); var q2 = prompt("Who was god of the Trojans?"); var q3 = prompt("Who sung feel the steel?"); var q4 = prompt("What is 5 minus 3?"); //q4 = parseInt(q4); var q5 = prompt("To be or not to be, that is the _?");

var answerTotal = 0;

if (q1.toUpperCase === "PRESLEY") { answerTotal += 1; } if (q2.toUpperCase === "APOLLO") { answerTotal += 1; } if (q3.toUpperCase === "STEEL PANTHER") { answerTotal += 1; } if (parseInt(q4) === 2) { answerTotal += 1; } if (q5.toUpperCase === "QUESTION") { answerTotal += 1; }

if (answerTotal === 5) { document.write("Congratulations you have recieved the gold crown!"); } else if (answerTotal >= 3) { document.write("Congratulations you have recieved the silver crown!"); } else if (answerTotal >= 1) { document.write("Congratulations you have recieved the bronze crown!"); } else { document.write("Sorry you missed all the answers!"); }
