11/27/2008 Results- HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2008!

DOND: This will be my last "Deal" recap of the week, since the show will be pre-empted tomorrow like most other shows in my area due to college football. Today's player is #6 Albert Rodriguez (who makes a snow angel when he's called on down; he's a soon-to-be father). All week long, he's be using his ESP to predict what will be in his case. I'm sure he's hoping the $500,000's in his case today.

1. #15 (Julie)- $50
2. #8 (Kristan)- $7,500
3. #11 (Blake)- BUCK

SIXTH OFFER: $27,000- DEAL

Had he gone on with #17 (Stephen), he would've eliminated $100 and gotten a final offer of $46,000. Had he chosen to accept his own case in the end...he would've exceeded his goal.

WOF: Last night, Tara Ray became just the second player this season to sweep the maingame, but blew her $100,000 bonus round opportunity, which would've made her the second-highest winner of the season. Let's see if we can make a nice recovery from that tonight. The first Toss-Up category is Thing:

T _ E/_ _ C A L/N _ _ _ _ _ _ E _

Yobelin solves THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER for $1,000.

$5,000 WINNING ID OF THE NIGHT: FC03013

Tonight's players:

Yobelin Fernandez (NYC)- Admininstrative modeling agency office manager and licensed massage therapist
Paul Hermacio (Seattle)- Fireman and occasional hospital volunteer; formerly worked eight years with the Air Force. Also, her mother was on the show back in 1977 with Chuck Woolery (with Paul in her belly at that point in her life) and she got to buy a few prizes!
Lisa Demitrovich (Brookline, MA)- Pharmaceutical sales representative and currently seeking her MBA in college

$2,000 Toss-Up category is Around the House (the first Toss-Up should've fallen under that same category):

F A _ _ L Y

P _ _ _ _ _ _ T

Yobelin quickly gets FAMILY PORTRAIT to triple up.

Round 1 category is Food & Drink and out on the wheel now is a country music prize package that includes a trip to Nashville and some albums from Billy Currington, Sugarland, George Strait & Lee Ann Womack, all worth $5,029. Early on, Yobelin calls three R's for $7,500 but later buys the only dud vowel on the board (I). Paul then spins Lose a Turn. After Lisa then calls the C's, we have...

_ _ T T E R C R E A _

F R O S T E D

C _ _ C A _ E S

...she solves BUTTERCREAM FROSTED CUPCAKES for $1,000.

DUDS: I

Campbell's Soup Jackpot Round category is Before & After. Paul begins the round with a pair of R's for $7,000. He then calls four T's to triple that amount! But he then calls a dud in L. Lisa then calls two H's for a $1,000 gift tag from Claim Jumper. At that point, we have...

_ _ _ _ _ _ _/_ _ T H/T H _/_ T _ R _/

_ _ _/_ T R _ _ _ _

...she calls the N's for another $1,200 and the Jackpot's now at 13 grand. After buying the I's, she loses the gift tag and $700 to a Bankrupt. Yobelin hits Bankrupt immediately. Paul then barely avoids the Bankrupt and calls a $900 W but then repeats the E, possibly costing him $21,900. Darn. Lisa then calls the D's for the Wild Card, a $550 C, a $900 G, and then buys the A's. She then calls the S's for another $3,200 and solves DANCING WITH THE STARS AND STRIPES for another $4,400 and the lead for now with $5,400. A $16,150 Jackpot goes unclaimed in the end.

DUDS: L
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Lisa, Yobelin)

Swanson Broth Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round category is Place. After Yobelin buys the I's, we have...

_ O _ _ _ A R

T O _ R _ S T

A T T R A C T _ O N

...she buys the last vowel of U (two of them up there) and she solves POPULAR TOURIST ATTRACTION for another $2,100 and a trip to Bermuda, giving her 11 grand in cash and trip; she has the lead back.

DUDS: E

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: TM7964664

Final Toss-Up category is Proper Name:

_ _ _ _ _ N

_ P _ _ L B _ _ G

Yobelin sweeps the Toss-Ups with STEVEN SPIELBERG, adding on to her lead (and she was quick on all them)! She now has $14,000. Speed-Up Round category is Living Things and consonants are worth $6,000 each! After Paul calls the T's, we have...

R A T T _ _ _ N A _ _ _/AND/

A R _ A D _ _ _ _ _

...for $24,000 and to steal the match...nothing! Lisa then calls the L's and solves RATTLESNAKES AND ARMADILLOS to win $30K and the match with $35,400! Yobelin leaves with $14K in cash and trip and Paul unfortunately goes home with the $1,000 consolation. Hey, at least the $1,000's better than the crummy parting gifts offered back in the 1970s.

Big Money Round: The Wild Card's in play tonight. Lisa spins the first A in AMERICA'S and the category is Thing. It's a one-wordy, and we start with:

_ _ _ _ _ E _ _

After going with CDMA on her regular picks, she chooses P...

P A _ C _ E C _

...she scores a $25,000 PAYCHECK, giving her $60,400 total!

After the $800 Constellations, Literally clue proves to be the first Triple Stumper of this round, Pinnow finds the first Daily Double under the $1,200 clue there. With $8,600 and a $4,000 lead, he wagers $3,000 on this:

Monoceros

"What is a unicorn?"...it is indeed a unicorn, taking him to $11,600! After that category gets cleared out, Barnes starts going Daily Double Hunting after he didn't do so in the first round. But Sexton's the one who finds the other Daily Double under the $1,600 Show Biz Award Winners clue with $3,800. The champ has $7,800 and Pinnow now has $15,600 (after a reverse ruling on one of his previous incorrect responses). Her wager is $3,000.

Voters lent him their ears and he won Song of the Year at the first Latin Grammys in 2000.

Pinnow then gives a ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK NOMINEE with "Who is Queen Kaile", when we were looking for a king- King Kamehameha (the Great), to be exact.
