MVPs and Big Winners Announcement for first week of October (Oct. 1-7)

MVPs: Hung Huynh ("Top Chef") and Jason Ramsey ("Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?")

I gave both of these people the honors this week because Mr. Beverly doesn't watch "Top Chef". The former was one of my early favorites to win "Top Chef", and thanks largely to winning both challenges in an episode I didn't watch, he wound up doing just that. The latter defied the odds and won $500,000 last Friday night. On that episode, it was originally scheduled to feature two different contestants, which would have all but eliminated the possibility of a winner of at least $500,000. But Ramsey made it all the way, thanks to asking for help only one time (on the $300,000 level). However, it is doubtful either one will be in my Salute of Champions later this year.

Other Big Winners and Notables:

Cecil Richardson- $310,000 ("Deal or No Deal")
Alicia Whitaker- $306,000 ("DOND")
Bibbs Family- Undefeated champions with $42,480 ("Family Feud")
Payne Family- Undefeated champions with $23,260 ("Family Feud")
Michael Rihn- $100,000 ("Don't Forget the Lyrics!")
Susie Oh- $50,000 ("The Singing Bee")
Dave Treene- $50,000 ("WWTBAM")
Jesse Cade- $37,100 ("WOF")
