A: 72
B: 75
C: 78

Despite the fact this question might be right up her alley, she asks the audience, and the results are VERY nasty. 35% said 75, 33% said 78, 30% said 72 and just 2% said 81. Meredith Viera even said the results were pathetic! LOL! She then takes a big gamble by saying 75 then...

A: 72
B: 75
C: 78
D: 81

...by golly, she's right for $8,000! Next, for $16,000:

A: Physicist
B: Archaeologist
C: Astronomer
D: Mathematician

In a college class that I ABSOLUTELY HATE, because I'm in danger of failing it this semester (Personality), I think it's a physicist. She calls her cousin Karen, who says nothing. She then tries her luck at guessing again and says astronomer at first, but then changes it to archaeologist...

A: Physicist
B: Archaeologist
C: Astronomer
D: Mathematician

...WE'RE ALL WRONG! It was mathematician. In any event, she leaves with $1,000 and a DVD game.

Christine Babett from Wilmington, DE is next, hoping to get to the next episode. For $4,000:

According to the rules of the board game "Battleship", which of these vessels is NOT included in each player's five-ship fleet?

WOF: Day 3 of Family Week in Chicago brings us Jessica and Akiva Carson from Belwood, IL (brother/sister; Akiva is a teacher and works with students for special needs), John and Tim O'Brien from Chicago (brothers; John is a firefighter) and Bonnie and Holly Rodriguez from Oswego, IL (stepmother/stepdaughter; Holly is a bank manager).

The Carsons get ALL MY CHILDREN for $1,000, while the Rodriguezes get THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY for two.

Round 1 category is Place and out on the wheel now is a pair of houseboat vacations worth $6,000. Midway in the round, the Rodriguezes pick up the Yankee Candle gift tag with a pair of T's. On their next consonant call, they call the L for $300 and the Free Spin. At that point, we have...

_ _ N _ R E _ _ _ _ N A L

_ _ _ T R _ _ T

...I think I know now. They call the S's for another $1,200 and solve CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT for another $3,100 and the gift tag, a total of $6,100.

V8 Jackpot Round category is Before & After. The leaders use their Free Spin midway in the round after calling a dud in C. After they buy the A next, we have...

_ _ E R _ _ E

_ _ L L

_ _ R R A _

...I don't know the top word. They lose their turn for good with the T. The Carsons call another dud in G. The O'Briens call the B for $3,500 and buy the I in the middle word, then the M for the Wild Card. After they buy the U's next, we now have...

_ _ E R _ U E

B I L L

M U R R A _

...they call a $3,500 D and use the Wild Card to call a Y for another $3,500, then solve OVERDUE BILL MURRAY for $10,950!

ActivOn Big Money/Prize Puzzle Round category is What Are You Doing? Budweisers, of course, not included. The winners of the last round better be glad they used that Wild Card in the last round, because they hit a Bankrupt right off the bat in this round. After they later call the M, we have...

_ _ A R I N G/A/_ I _ _ _ _ R/_ _/

M A R G A R I _ A _

...I have the idea here, but I don't know the middle words...but they do with SHARING A PITCHER OF MARGARITAS for another $1,200 and a pair of trips to Ixtapa, Mexico, for a new total of $21,490 in cash and prizes!

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: JB1609540

The Carsons then solve BLUES MUSICIANS (the O'Briens were incorrect with BLACK MUSICIANS) to quadruple their money. Speed-Up Round category is Food & Drink and consonants are worth $1,350 apiece. After they call the H's, we have...

F R _ S H

_ R _ _ _ _ D

S _ _ N _ _ H

...Popeye loves this food. They blank out. The O'Briens call three E's and we now have...

F R E S H

_ R E _ _ E D

S _ _ N _ _ H

...they only get the first and last words. The all-lady team calls the P but can't get anything. Back to the Carsons, they call the C's and solve FRESH CREAMED SPINACH for another $8,100 and a final total of $12,100. The two ladies get $6,100 in cash and prizes while the O'Briens win with $21,490!

The O'Briens spin the N in BONUS and the category is Phrase. Starting with:

_/_ _ R _ _ _ E/_ _ _

Picks are B, D, M and A and they get zero.

That means it's I ________ YOU...but that's all they get. The middle word was FORGIVE, making the right answer I FORGIVE YOU, and the cars are lost for the second straight night. They probably would've won had they called the F and the G.

TPIR MDS: Tonight's first four players are Lindsay Dykstra, Jeremy Carroll, Dewey Creighton and Brenda Moss-Clipton. The first IUFB is a trip to Puerto Vallarta.

Brenda: $3,901
Dewey: $2,800
Jeremy: $3,600
Lindsay: $3,000

ARP: $4,100, so Moss-Clipton from North Carolina will play One Wrong Price for all three kinds of Mini Coopers- the Hatchback (Std., Paint, Adapter, Wheel, Foglights), the S Convertible (Std., Paint, AT, Seats) and the S Clubman (Std., Paint, Conv., Cold Weather, Premium, Sport, SRadio)! Here are how they're marked right now:

Hatchback: $17,051
Convertible: $27,800
Clubman: $33,600

I think it's the hatchback, but I'm not totally sure. She wanted to agree with me at first, but she goes with the convertible, and she's wrong. Had she agreed with me, she would've won, because the hatchback was $20,750.

Next player is Rita Rosemond and the second IUFB is a Heartland refrigerator/freezer.

Rita: $2,400
Dewey: $2,600
Jeremy: $2,479
Lindsay: $2,601

ARP: $5,065, so Dykstra will play Million Dollar Plinko! She wins all four SPs- the retro popcorn maker ($39), a wash/wax system ($20), an $82 kitchen thing and a space bag hanging bag ($12) for all five Plinko Chips.

1. $500 (Right)
2. $20,000 (stuck on first try)
3. DUD (Left)
4. $500 (Left)
5. $20,000

Bad news: She won't play for the million, at least not right now. Good news: SHE JUST SET A NEW ALL-TIME PLINKO RECORD WITH $41,000!!!

Next player is Christopher Goper from the U.S. Marine Corps and the third IUFB is a big-screen LCD HDTV.

Christopher: $2,800
Rita: $4,600
Dewey: $3,800
Jeremy: $3,900

ARP: $4,298, so Carroll plays Pocket Change for a Lincoln MKZ (Std., Nav., Stereo, Wheels, Prot)! First number is 3. The remaining numbers in play are 1, 2, 5, 7 and 9. His second number guess is 2...no. He then says 7...no. Next is 5...yes. His opening third number guess is 9...no. Next is 7...no. He then says 2...right. His first guess for the fourth digit is 7...yes. He then says 9 as the last number...yes. The final cost of the $35,279 Lincoln is $1.25 tonight. First envelope has a nickel. Second is a dime. Third is nothing. He must have the $2 in the last envelope to win...but it's only another dime.

The only big winner this half gets to the Showcase.

Next player is Vance Ole and the next IUFB is a bed.

Vance: $5,600
Christopher: $5,100
Rita: $4,500
Dewey: BUCK

ARP: $4,897, meaning RR plays Super Pushover for a pair of motorcycles. Board:

980137983

Does she says $13,798 for the win...yes!

Next to "Come on Down" is Megan Boyd from Maine and the next IUFB is a basketball video arcade game.

Megan: $2,100
Dewey: $4,200
Vance: $3,100
Christopher: $3,101

ARP: $3,895, so the guy from the U.S. Marine Corps plays Any Number for either some kitchen appliances or a Ford Expedition (Std., Conv., Seats, CChairs, Prot). First number in the car is 3. First selection is 7...we've got $700+ worth of appliances here. Second is 6...second number of the car ($ 3 6 , _ _ _). Third pick is 2...two cents so far in the piggy bank. Fourth choice is 5...last number of the appliances. Fifth selection is 9, which worried me...but that's the fourth number of the car ($ 3 6, _ 9 _). He then picks 4...the piggy bank is worth over $4 tonight. Seventh pick is 0...he wins just $4.02. The car was $36,398 and the appliances cost $715. Interesting that if he had gone down from 9-3 in order, he would've won.

The last player is Raymond Hunt and the final IUFB is a pair of exercise bikes.

Raymond: $1,357
Megan: $3,200
Dewey: $3,800
Vance: $3,100

ARP: $3,644, so Creighton checks into Heartbreak Hotel while Boyd plays Pick a Pair for a party boat worth $24,531! The products tonight are Midol, olive oil, CLR cleaner, salsa, Old Spice deodorant and Citracal. First pick is the salsa...$2.99. She then picks the deodorant...$4.19. She then tries again to find the other $2.99 item and says the cleaner...but that's the other $4.19 item. The other $2.99 item was, believe it or not, the Midol.

The Marine Corps guy gets to the Showcase to face the new Plinko record holder.

First Showcase has Lanisha trying her best to get Rachel, a country girl, to move to the city. First, she tells her that while in the city, she could wear a new evening gown. Second, she says that can only wear a new diamond bracelet and cupcake handbag while in the city. Third, Lanisha could take Rachel to a discotheque where she could dance to a new jukebox. Finally, she offers her the chance to drive a new Corvette while in the city (Std., AT, Z51, #3LT). Dykstra bids $72,000. For the military man, Lanisha now shows Rachel what it's like to live in the countryside. First, according to Lanisha, the best thing you could do in the morning is cutting grass with a new lawn mower. Second, she offers Rachel to chance to do a hoedown with a new stereo system. Third, home cooked meals are served on a new dinette with dinnerware. Finally, what's the perfect home here in this neck of the woods- a new Winnebago Access Motorhome (which has been won twice so far this season on "Wheel of Fortune")! He bids $58,000, which is a GARF.

ARP for him: $77,727, a difference of $19,727. ARP for her: Seventy....







...FOUR thousand, 415, so she's the champion tonight with $120,633 in cash and prizes!

DOND: They're in Estonia tonight. The host for that country's version is Alari Kivisaar. Tonight's first contestant is David Krauch from Honolulu, Hawaii. He's a maintenance man during the day and a nighttime cab driver. His case of destiny is #13.

Our other player tonight is Elaine Primeaux from Texarkana, TX. She's a semi-retired hairdresser, and is celebrating her 50th birthday right here at the time of this taping! Hopefully, it'll be a big chunk of the potential $1,000,000, hopefully as much or even more than Mr. Krauch's. She holds #14 hostage.

Bonus task: If she decides to eat a piece of blood sausage, one of the traditional foods in Estonia, the size of the offer will be doubled. She's barely able to eat a piece...but all she gets in return is a bigger $91,000 card, meaning nothing additional was added to the pot! Ugh. Needless to say, she said to that NO DEAL.

New offer: $40,000...DEAL! Her case had...$10, so she made a good deal. But had she gone on with #25, she would've knocked out $10K and likely would've taken home $55K.

Tonight's model winner was Nadia.

Jeopardy!: Tonight's college lineup:

Dara Lind: Junior from Yale
Andrew Chung: Sophomore from Harvey Mudd College
Joey Beachum: Senior from Mississippi State University

Opening categories:

Thanks to getting most of the sports film clues, Beachum has the lead at the first break with $2,600. Chung has $1,400 and Lind has an even grand. Left on the board at this point:

Literature: $600-$1,000
I Like to Decorate: $400-$1,000

She then chooses the $600 Literature clue...Daily Double! She bets half:

"What is Oliver Twist?"...she now has $1,500. Next in that category:

Richard Middlemas gets crushed by an elephant in "The Surgeon's Daughter", an 1827 tale by this Edinburgher.

Making ordinary furniture look like an antique is called this, a synonym for "troubling"; the fun part is the hitting.

Chung tries to do better with "What is distressing?"...he's back to three grand. We start the final category of the round, Animal House, with this:
