PASS AND TIME EXPIRES- OCHI WINS!

Endgame #1 (contestants are still giving the clues)

$10,000: Ochi and Steve have a TERRIBLE start, missing PORCUPINE, BEGIN, YOGURT, TRAPEZE, but they manage to get SPLINTER, MUTT, CLOUD, TAP and AUTHOR with just three seconds left! Whew!

$25,000: They get CAESAR, miss CANYON, nail CONDITIONER, miss HALFTIME and FLEXIBLE, get TURBULENCE and BAPTISM...BUT THEY CAN'T GET FUTON IN TIME!!! I knew this day would come eventually- Ochi's the first champion not to win a cent on this show. Maybe Steve should stick to "Pyramid".

Steve will try to have much better luck with his new partner of Krystal Marshall from Atlanta (who is a nanny and a former college graduate). And now teaming up with Sara is Brandon Fake from Reading, PA (who wants to be the next great movie director).

Because of severe weather coverage, I missed the remainder of the game. But I can tell you that it went to a tiebreaker for only the second time ever. The tiebreaking word was KAZOO...and the winners were Brandon & Steve.

Endgame #2: Sure enough, Brandon gets to the $25,000 mark with ease...but no $50,000 for him while playing with Sara.

I am very surprised Steve bombed out the way he did in the money round. Again, maybe Steve should stick with playing "Pyramid". Hopefully we'll end the first season on a good note next week.
