PLAYERS OF THE WEEK:
WINNERS: Brandon Cantu ($1,005,000)("World Poker Tour") and Javin Smith (first $25,000 "Catch 21" winner)
RUNNER-UP: Tiffaney Florentine (Female finalist)("American Gladiators")
3RD PLACE: Charles Zaucha ($50,000)("Wipeout")
The last four remaining on "So You Think You Can Dance"
The final three on "Nashville Star" (including Michelle Lawson)
The final three on "The Mole"
The final four on "I Survived a Japanese Game Show"
(This is the fourth week in a row I've given at least a share of the Player of the Week honors to a WPT champ. With all of the reality finales next week, I highly doubt that streak will continue next week.)
ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK: On the FIRST ANSWER GIVEN of the season finale of "Celebrity Family Feud", when asked to name something that could help people make bathing a sexual experience, Paul of "American Chopper" said something for outside use, suntan lotion. He did shake off the mistake, though, and helped his team win $50,000 for Make-a-Wish.
