This is the last episode of the month for this show.
Girls: Bridget, Jenn and Angela (Rutgers friends)
Guys: John, Mike and Dan (video game buffs)
Guys won the toss. John starts with the last word before LICENSE, which starts with H, but he draws a blank. The second letter is U (HU.....) and Bridget says HUG (!?!?!?)....that's my kind of license for attractive women, but it doesn't exist and is incorrect. The third letter is N
(H U N _ _ _ _ ) and Mike says HUNTING to get the guys on the board first! Dan goes up to the fifth word, which starts with J (J _ _) and he says JUMP (!?!?!?).....dude, it's JOB. Jenn steals that to tie it up. Angela heads up to the middle word, which starts with D (D _ _), but she runs out of time. The second letter is A (D A _) and John says DAY to give the guys the lead back.
Mike gets the third word, which starts with G, and he says GOOD....bad. The second letter is
A (GA....), but Bridget has nothing. The third letter is M (G A M _) and Dan says GAME to take the guys to $300. The first word after NEVER starts with M, and John says MAME...not the worst guess, but not right, either. The second letter is I (M I _ _) and Jenn says MIND to give the girls $200 and a chance to tie it up with this Speed Chain:
They slam dunk this one with CHRISTMAS CAROL to tie the game at $300 apiece! Next chain:
Angela goes with the second word, which starts with S (S _ _ _ _ _ _ _) and she says SANDWICH to give the ladies the lead with $500! The third word starts with B, and Bridget says BREAD....but that's not it. The second letter is A (B A _) and Mike says BAKE at the buzzer....never heard of a sandwich bake, and that's bologna. The next letter is the last one in that word, and Jenn says BAG to give the ladies $700! The middle word starts with B, and Angela says BABY at the buzzer....buzz that a lot, because it's a very dumb guess. The second letter there is O (B O _) and Dan says BOY....get this next one right, boys, you tie the game again at $700 this time. The fifth word starts with W (W _ _ _ _ _) and John says WORD (!?!?!?)...NO FREAKIN' WAY. The second letter is O (W O _ _ _ _), but Bridget has a blank on her mind. The third letter is N (W O N _ _ _) and Mike says WONDER to tie the game! The last word before WINNER starts with B, and Dan says BREAD to win the chain and give the guys the lead with $900....yes! To go to four figures....
They say HAND CREAM to go to $1,100! The chain worth $300 for each right answer starts as follows:
Jenn starts with the word after UNIVERSAL, and it starts with R. She says REMOTE...$1,000 is theirs! If they get the next one right, they will have the lead back. Angela goes next door, and the third word starts with A. She says AREA...nope. John decides to save that word for later and go to the sixth word, and it starts with S. He says SWITCH...the guys are back to a $400 lead!
Mike heads back to the third word, and the second letter is C (A C _ _ _ _). He says ACCELERATOR (!?!?!?)...ABSOLUTELY NOT. The thrd letter is C (A C C _ _ _) and Bridget says ACCESS...right for $1,300! The middle starts with R, and Jenn says nothing. The second letter is O (R O _ _) and Dan says ROAD....the guys now have $1,700! The fifth word starts with K, and John says KICK...sorry. Angela gets the second letter of I (KI....) and she says KING...kinda leaning towards that myself, but it's wrong. The third letter is L (K I L _) and Mike says KILL....$2,000 for the men! To go to $2,300:
They says HOUSE REAL....this was too hard for them. It was HELL RAISING.
Bridget gets the second word, and it starts with R. For $100, she says REGULARLY....goodbye, $100. The second letter is O (RO.....), and Dan says ROCK for $100....they lose $100 too. The third letter is U (ROU....) and Jenn says ROUTINE for $300....the ladies now have $1,500!
They trail now by $400. The third word starts with P, and Angela says PRACTICE for $100....sorry. The second letter is H (PH....) and John bets $100 the word is PHASE (?!?!?)....ABSOLUTELY BOGUS. The third letter is Y (P H Y _ _ _ _ _) and Bridget says PHYSICAL...the men's lead has been cut in half! The middle word starts with E, and Jenn says EDUCATION for $200 and a tie....the males' lead is back to $400 now, because that's wrong.
The second letter is V, and for $100....nothing from Mike. The third letter is I (EVI.....)
and Angela says EVIDENCE for $100....right! The fifth word starts with R, and Bridget says RESEARCH for $100....no. Dan saves that for later and goes to the word before CRUNCHER, which starts with N. He says NUMBER....right! They are leading by just $400, so the game is not over yet. The fifth word's second letter is O (RO.....) and John says ROOM for $100. If he's wrong, the girls will have a chance to force a tiebreaker...it's right and the guys win their $1,900!
Instant Reaction: Mike is the answerer. The men get glasses and rain no problem, then pass immediately on Anna Kournikova. They get candle no sweat, but stumble on marathon and candle. They get finger, and think they've won when Mike says bear, but they form an illegal question. But they still get the $5,000 with computer with 19 seconds left, and they take home $6,900! Much better week for the show after a dreadful last week.
