TPIR: Opening the show are Mylissa, Christopher, Paula and Karin. The first IUFB is a pool table (Gabrielle & Phire).
Christopher Newcy from Santa Cruz, CA plays Cover Up for a Jeep Wrangler (Std., AT, HTop, Prot, EBH)(Amber). Board:
First number: 2 or 3?
Second number: 2, 5 or 7?
Third number: 1, 3, 4 or 8?
Fourth number: 0, 1, 2, 4 or 5?
Last number: 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 or 9?
First guess is $25,847...the 2 and the 8 are right. Second guess is $22,858...the second 2 is now right. Third guess is $22,819...the 1 is now right. His final guess is $22,814...BULLSEYE and he does a baseball slide over the Jeep!
(Note: Instead of asking the sound effects lady one last time if he had won the Jeep or not, Drew simply decided to hit the reveal button on the gameboard to reveal if he had won or not. I wish Bob Barker had done that a lot more often.)
David now enters Contestant's Row and the second IUFB is a cooler collection (Phire).
David: $325 (STUPID BID)
Mylissa: $300 (STUPID BID)
Paula: BUCK (STUPID BID)
By default, Karin Joot wins with the ARP being $1,176.
This resort manager from Las Vegas now plays Cliff Hangers for a trip to New Orleans (Amber & Gabrielle) worth $5,400. Phire now models a "TPIR" PC game, a USB hub and a drink buggy. Karin's on the nose with $20 for the game. She then guesses $33 for the USB hub...$30. Her guess on the buggy is $35...it's actually $50 and she wins!
Next to leave their seat is Carrie and the third IUFB is stemware (Amber & Phire).
Mylissa Acevedo, who I doubt is related to $1,000,000 winner Cynthia, is a professional ballet dancer and a news lady in the Vegas area. And she could be doing a victory dance if she wins Clock Game for $1,000, a sofa (Gabrielle) and a sailboat (Phire). ARP of the sofa was $1,679. She starts with $3,000, then
$2,700...$2,500...$2,200...$2,100...$1,900...$1,500...$1,700, $1,600, $1,650, $1,670,
$1,699...$1,680...$1,684...$1,674...$1,680...$1,677 and one ups from there to finally win that with just three seconds left. The boat's price was $1,995. She begins with $4,700, then $4,400...$3,000...and then $2,000 before running out of time.
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Mylissa ($3,359): Quarter + 45 (during her second spin, she belly danced and some special music is played!) = $.70
Karin ($6,676): 40 + 20 = $.60
Christopher ($25,614): 55 + 55 = OVER
Mylissa will be belly dancing her way to the Showcase!
Carlos Camejo comes on down next and the fourth IUFB is a set of surfboards (Gabrielle).
David Bortz, a Psychology major from Ohio State, plays One Right Price for a motorcycle (Gabrielle) and a fireplace (Amber). He decides that Phire should place the price of $1,999 on the fireplace...got it! The motorcycle was $3,349.
After him comes Dorothy Benson and the fifth IUFB is a weather station (Amber).
Paula House finally makes it out and this barefooted lady from St. Louis now plays Money Game for a Pontiac Vibe (Phire). Board:
Middle number is 4. She starts with 25 for $25, then 17 for $17...19 for another $19 before finally picking 18 as the front of the car ($ 1 8 , 4 _ _). She then picks 64...she finishes with only $124. ARP was $18,486, so she becomes another victim of the Front and Back Trick.
Sharon Zepeda leaves the audience last and the final IUFB is an exercycle (Gabrielle).
Sharon now plays Bullseye for a dining room (Phire) worth $6,266. Products today are crescent rolls, Clorox bleach, fruit snacks, Yams and Eggo French Toast.
1. 3 French Toasts: $3.49 X 3 = WIN AT $10.47!
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Paula ($884): $.70
David ($6,892): Nickel + 90 = $.95
Sharon ($7,065): 45 + 50 = $.95
Sharon goes to the Showcase.
First Showcase asks people what's the most logical place you can think of when you hear French Fries and French Toast? Where else- Paris (Amber)! Second, if you like rings like the onion ones, napkin ones and "Lord of the Rings", you might like to wear a new diamond engagement ring (Gabrielle). Finally, if you hear cardboard and carp fish, you'd instead think of a new Ford Mustang Convertible (Std., AT)(Phire)!

The $250,000 in #22 next to #21's $100,000?...nah, it had $500 instead. But had she gone on one more time with Danille's #9, she would've knocked out $5 and likely taken an offer of $111,000.
WOF: Let's start out with this Toss-Up in the category of Fictional Characters:
_ N _ _ P Y/&/
_ O _ _ S _ _ _ K

F L I G H T
A T T E N _ A N T
...but they spin Bankrupt. Opeta & Stephen spin Lose a Turn. Malia & Julie call a $300 D then call a B for a gift tag worth $1,000 cash. After an $800 P, they solve BUMPY FLIGHT ATTENDANT for another $3,850 and $4,850 total.
DUDS: O, R, S
BANKRUPTS: 1 (Lauren & Courtney)
Swanson Broth Jackpot Round category is Living Things. Opeta & Stephen land on the Million Dollar Wedge instantly but call a dud in T. Malia & Julie fail to pick up the Free Spin with another dud of N. Back to Opeta & Stephen, they land on Jackpot and call a $500 R; they can't solve for a $6,400 Jackpot. A little later, after Lauren & Courtney call the F's for the cruises, we have...
S A _ _ F _ S H/&/
S _ _ R _ F _ S H
...they buy three I's but get a Bankrupt from the Million Dollar Wedge to lose the cruises and $1,900. Opeta & Stephen call a $900 L but buy the other dud vowel on the board in U. Malia & Julie then call a $600 D but spin a regular Bankrupt, as do Lauren & Courtney. Opeta & Stephen then just decide to solve SAILFISH & SWORDFISH for their first $2,000.
DUDS: E (repeated once by Malia & Julie), N, P, T, U

_ U L E S/&/R E G _ _ _ _ _ O N S
Lauren & Courtney solve RULES & REGULATIONS to go to $5,000. Speed-Up Round category is Phrase and consonants are worth $1,500 apiece. After Opeta & Stephen call the D's, we have...
R _ _ _ H/_ R _ _ _ D/T H _/
_ D _ _ S
...they can't solve. Malia & Julie call a dud in M. Lauren & Courtney call the N's but can't pull out the solve for $7,500.

Lauren & Courtney get $2,500 apiece and Malia & Julie each get $2,425.
Big Money Round: A pair of Ford automobiles await lucky winners this week (my first guess are a pair of Mustangs; my other guesses are the Escape Hybrids and the Flexes). The boys spin the W and the category is Thing. Starting with:
_ _ L _ S _
_ _ _ R _
I think it's _____ CHARM. They call P, H, D and I and get...
_ _ L _ S _
_ H _ R _
...the second word was indeed CHARM, but they don't even get that right. The entire answer was FOLKSY CHARM and they don't win $25,000.
Jeopardy!: Here are tonight's teen contestants:
Jay Schrader (Lexington, KY)- Junior
Sarah Marx (Chevy Chase, MD)- Junior
Haley Batz (Charlotte, NC)- Senior
Opening categories this time:
SPORTS TEAM HOMES
WHICH TIME ZONE? (a city is given and the contestants have to come up with the time zone in which that city falls under)
ALL YOU NEED IS GOVERNOR
YOU CAN QUOTE ME ON THAT
On the last clue before the first break, Batz finds the Daily Double under the $800 clue in You Can Quote Me On That with $800 so far. Schrader leads now with $2,600 and Marx has $1,400. She tries to double up with this:
This author concluded a famous novel with the line "After all, tomorrow is another day".
"Who is Ernest Hemingway?"...incorrect. It was Margaret Mitchell. At the end of the round, Schrader's now at $6,200. Marx has $2,600 and Batz's back up to $1,600.
ROUND 1 LACH TRASH: $3,800
ASK ALEX #2: Why did Alex shave his moustache? Because the thought came to him while looking at the mirror one day before an episode started. On the first show without his moustache, half the crowd didn't notice a difference about Alex.
AN HOUR OF TV
Marx is the one who finds the first Daily Double under the $1,200 Nonfiction clue with $4,600. She trails Schrader by two grand at this moment, and she'll try to cut the lead in half with this clue:
This book that tackled the topic of football in a Texas town inspired a film and a TV series.
"What is Friday Night Lights?"...you bet it is to go to $5,600! By the time she finds the other Daily Double under the $1,200 clue in Abbreviations, she now trails him by just $600, $9,000 to $8,400. She wagers $1,000 again. This is for the lead:
nsec stands for this very brief amount of time.
"What is a nanosecond?"...she's got the lead now with $9,400!
DJ! LACH TRASH: $2,400
SCORES AFTER DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:
Haley Batz made a decent charge in the second half of DJ!
FJ! CATEGORY: Washington, D.C.
Unveiled in 1923, the statue seen here of this man is located on the south side of the Treasury Building.
We start off with Batz, who wrote down "Who is Madison?"...incorrect. She wagered $2,000, so she's down to $6,800. Schrader said "Who is Hamilton?"...right for another $2,000, giving him $17,000 and guaranteeing him at least a wild card berth in the semi-finals. As for Marx...she put Jefferson, meaning the man wins, but she only lost $3,800, so with a final score of $12,400 tonight, she's in the semi-finals anyway as a Wild Card! Benjamin Saunders is also a Wild Card. Let's see the updated scoreboard:
WILD CARD LEADERBOARD:
1. Benjamin Saunders- $20,000
2. Sarah Marx- $12,400
3. Audrey Hosford- $8,200
4. Haley Batz- $6,800
Katie Houghton and Casey Clough each leave with $5,000.
