A: 3
B: 4
C: 5
D: 6

I knew this one, but he calls Pam, who is a history teacher, who says 3...not what I was thinking. The 50:50 leaves that and 4. He then decides to take the $16,000 home. It was indeed 4.

Blake Burgard, a police officer from Santa Barbara, CA, is next. For $4,000:

Which of these chart-topping albums was recorded by an "American Idol" champion?

A: "Some Hearts"
B: "The Emancipation of Mimi"

What U.S. state's highest point is at the top of a 4,973-foot hill called Black Mesa?

A: Nebraska
B: Oklahoma
C: Idaho
D: South Dakota

He thinks it's South Dakota, but he plays it safe by using his 50:50...good thing he did that, because that's gone. Left are Nebraska and Oklahoma. He now wants to say Oklahoma, but he also decides to walk away with 16 grand today. Oklahoma was right.

In 1930, what infamous figure headed a list of "Public Enemies" issued by the Chicago Crime Commission?

The Jones team will play. Monyma starts off with amusement park...NUMBER ONE (45)! Tiffani's first answer is the doctor's office...well, tell all the babies about it, that's #5 (6)! Duan then goes with the dentist's office...no. Timothy then says church...maybe I might, but NO WAY for this survey. Back to Jeremale, who says laundromat...ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK NOMINEE FOR A STRIKEOUT. The day's first steal is worth 82 points, and Jeff says either #4 or #6 is a sporting event...#4 (7)! The last answer was a park (2).

This time, the Martins will play. We start this time with Lajohnda, who answers the middle finger...all rude gestures like that are #2 (33)! Shannon is next with chasing them...no- apparently that's just for the police to do. Maitresse then says tailgating them...uh, no. Jeff tries to stop the slide with honking the horn, which is #4 (3)! Lajohnda next says move over...I'm afraid control just moved over to the other team. For a nine point leading heading into the double points round, Jeremale goes with calling the cops...no, so the Martins are up to 173! Unsaid answers:

Sherlonda says 5 pounds, your height, California, food and pencil for 41. Maitresse says 4 pounds, needles, S.F., fart (ironic!) and paper for only 84 total. I thought only two of the questions were easy today. Unsaid #1 answers:

2. Thread
3. Paris
4. Freeze
5. Homework (they should've at least gotten this one)

We then see the rare clip reel at the end!

WOF: Andy Nguyen watched this episode in the Navy Pier’s audience! Tonight’s players are Santos Lopez (in the yellow) from Oak Lawn, IL, Ashley Michaels from Carol Stream, IL (who is a freshman at Illinois University studying Mass Education) and Apollonia Leoni from Chicago (who is a receptionist at a law firm).

Santos gets SPORTS ILLUSTRATED for $1,000, while the student gets HOT DOG WITH EVERYTHING for $2,000.

Round 1 category is Before & After and out on the wheel now is a trip to see a Chicago White Sox home game at US Cellular Field with the right to stay in one of the stadium’s diamond suites, autographed gear and a visit from a former White Sox player, all worth $5,000. Early on, Leoni calls three T’s for the Wild Card. Later on, she calls two H’s for $5,000 but doesn’t want to use her Wild Card at the moment. At that point, we have…

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _/A _ _/THE/THREE/

_ E A R _/_ A _ _ _ T _

…I don’t know the last word. She then calls four S’s for another $1,600 and buys the O’s, then we have…

_ O _ _ _ _ O _ _ S/A _ _/THE/THREE/

_ E A R S/_ A S _ O T S

…I know it now. After a $300 M, she hits Lose a Turn. Santos calls the G for $900, the D’s for another $800, and solves GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS MASCOTS for another $1,700 and $2,700 total.

V8 Jackpot Round category is Phrase. Early on, Michaels calls three T’s for $10,500. After Leoni buys the I’s, we have…

S E T T I N _/_/_ I _ _/S T _ N _ _ _ _

…I know it. She calls the G’s for $600 and solves SETTING A HIGH STANDARD for her first $1,000.

Eggland’s Best Big Money/Prize Puzzle Round category is Occupation. At the start, the man in the middle hits a Mystery Wedge. He calls two R’s and flips…zero. Later on, Leoni loses her Wild Card to a Bankrupt. After the man calls S for Santos (two of them are there) for $600 and the Free Spin, we have…

S C _ _ _

_ _ S T R _ C T O R

…I know it. He buys the I and the U’s, then solves SCUBA INSTRUCTOR for another Benjamin and a trip to the Grand Cayman Island, for a new total of nine grand in cash and trip.

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: MS2335357

He then solves IN IT TO WIN IT (also the name of a British game show) to go to 12 large. Speed-Up Round category is Living Things. The big bell didn’t ring until a lot of work had been done. The remaining consonants are worth $6,000 each! After Michaels calls a pair of P’s, we have…

P _ R T R I _ _ _/&/

P _ _ _ S _ N T

…for another $12,500 and the championship…too much time. Leoni calls a dud in L. Santos calls the D and solves PARTRIDGE & PHEASANT for the match with $20,400! Michaels has $2,000 and Leoni has $1,000.

He spins the H and the category is Thing. It’s a one-wordy, and we start out with:

_ _ _ L _ _ _ E

He calls H, C, M and O and gets…

_ _ _ L O _ _ E

…not much. He can’t get DIALOGUE and he loses $40,000. He needed at least the G.

TPIR MDS: Our opening players are Aja Mantos, Jimmy Schultz, Deleshia Horn and Robert Marshall. The first IUFB is a sailboat.

Deleshia: THREE BUCKS (ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK NOMINEE)
Robert: $3,650
Jimmy: $1,000
Aja: $2,700

ARP: $4,847, so Bob will walk the Golden Road. With any luck, a can of green beans could lead him to some acoustic guitars, a home gym with a built-in TV, and worth more than $100,000...a Fleetwood Icon 2014 Motorhome!!! The beans are 61 cents. The last two digits in the price of the guitars are 2 and 8 and of course he knows they're $628. Here's the setup for the gym:

$ 5 , _ 9 4

I would say 6 again while he goes with the 2...

$ 5 , 2 9 4

...right! For the motorhome:

$ 1 0 2, _ 7 8


The 2 is pretty much of the running as the third digit. I think it's 9 and he agrees...

$ 1 0 2, 9 7 8

...NO. It was $102,478. He gave it a good try.

Next player is Lacretia Smith and the second IUFB is a pair of mountain bikes.

Lacretia: $600 (STAGE GARF)
Jimmy: $800 (STAGE GARF)
Aja: $601 (STAGE GARF)
Deleshia: $1,000

By default, Horn wins with the ARP being $3,500. This L.A. lady now plays the first playing of Super Punch a Bunch in a long time...this time, for $50,000! The dollar signs on the holes have a different font as of this taping. Only one hole has the 50 grand, three have $25,000, 10 have $5,000, plus 12 holes each with either $1,000, $500 or $100. Also, unlike the previous primetime episodes with this game being played, there are still four second chances available on the board. ALSO, if she hits the big one on heyr very first punch, she'll also win $1,000,000!

First item is a remote control dune buggy marked at $95 and she says lower...$50. Second is a CD cleaning system marked at $20 and she says higher, and it's twice the amount. Third is a portable air conditioner for tires marked at $15 and she says higher again, and once again, the ARP is twice the posted value. Finally, we have a toiletry bag marked at $12 and she screws this one up with lower, because it was $25.

She punches out hols #10, #22 and #28. Her first punch, #10, has...







...$5,000! But she goes on. #22 has $1,000. She goes on to the final hole of #28...$100 but also a second chance. She then punches out hole #43...another $500 to multiply her final cash total by six.

Next player is Benjamin Fortland and the third IUFB is a Heartland range.

Benjamin: $3,900
Lacretia: $4,000
Jimmy: $3,300
Aja: $4,001

ARP: $5,299, so Mantos from Boston plays Cliff Hangers for a Great Northwest Train Adventure worth $15,386. First item is the Space Bag and she bids $20...$11. Second is a car wash sponge system and she says $17 and I groaned...but that's $20. She must get the price of the garage keypad within $13, high or low. She tries $40...it's $38 for the win!

SSD1: Horn spins 55 cents. Marshall spins 45...and doubles up to 90 cents! Mantos spins a nickel...and 35, so the Golden Road man is in the Showcase!

Next to "Come on Down" is Robert Howard and the next IUFB is a stereo system.

Robert: $1,500
Benjamin: $1,900
Lacretia: $1,000
Jimmy: $1,901

ARP: $4,950, so Schultz, the last of tonight's first four, plays Lucky Seven for a Porsche Cayman (Std., Pref., Seats, PProt)! First number is 5. His second number guess is 6...

$ 5 2 , _ _ _

...$4 gone already. Middle number guess is 5...

$ 5 2 , 8 _ _

...game over. ARP: $52,849. That was tough.

Next is Crystal Gage and the next IUFB is skiboarding equipment.

Crystal: $4,100
Robert: $4,300
Benjamin: $3,100
Lacretia: BUCK

ARP: $4,238, so Gage plays for three rooms of furniture- a living room, a dining room and a bedroom, all worth $13,747, in Grocery Game! Products tonight are salsa, Midol, Alka-Seltzer, CLR cleaner and brown rice. First purchase is two Midols...each one only costs 99 cents. Secondly, she buys six salsas. Each one is $2.99, for a total of....$19.92- she's mathematically eliminated. Her final purchase was one box of rice, which was $1.99.

Final player tonight is Nadine Ilba and the final IUFB is a sauna.

Nadine: $4,500
Robert: $5,000
Benjamin: $5,100
Lacretia: $5,101

All are over.

Nadine: $2,500
Robert: $3,500
Benjamin: $3,700
Lacretia: $3,701

ARP: $4,150, so Smith will play Super Squeeze Play for a Chevrolet Suburban (Std., LTZ, Crossbars)! Board:

473095

I say $43,095, while she says $47,395...

$ 4 7, 3 9 5

...BULLSEYE!! Roger wanted this game tonight, for sure! And she had quite an excited reaction, too!

He also wanted to give players a chance in Punch a Bunch and Cliff Hangers.

SSD2: Gage spins 30...and 50 for 80 cents. Schultz spins 15...and 45, so he leaves with parting gifts. Smith spns 35...and 60 to go to the Showcase!

First Showcase features ways you could be more Earth-friendly. First, grow your own veggies in your new greenhouse with some garden tools thrown in. Second, go to any store you want on your new Segway. Finally, we have two really nice things that can help cut pollution- a Saturn VUE Green Line (Std., Comfort/Conv.) and a Ford Escape Hybrid! After originally wanting bid $35,000, then $38,000, Marshall bids $66,550, which sounds like a WILLY. For Smith, we describe to her what it's really like in Hollywood. First, most actors come here from NYC. Second, these actors would like to impress movie producers with the scripts they type up on their new computer system. Third, show your own personal movie projects outdoors with your new outdoor theater package. Finally, make sure you arrive to awards shows in classy cars like a Cadillac XLR (Std., Wheels)! She bids 64 grand, which is a GARF, but she should win.

ARP for her: $88,439, a difference of $24,439. ARP for him....$60,619, so he went over by just a little bit while Smith is tonight's champion with $139,984 in prizes!

This recap was disjointed, confusing, and hard to read. You should consider using the player's names all the way through the recap, along with something like bid-actual-difference at the end, so we don't have to guess.
