SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Annette ($978): $.60
Emily ($1,075): 60 + 80 = DOH
Roshni ($3,853): $.70

Roshni, the only winner of anything so far, gets to the Showcase.

Elizabeth McManus is the next one entering Contestant's Row and the fourth IUFB is a rocker (Brandi; I think a green screen's being used here).

Elizabeth: $400
Tyava: $750
Curtis: $350 (STAGE GARF #2)

5. LHLL- STAGE GARF

Jessie: $750
Elizabeth: $1,395
Tyava: $1,396
Curtis: $800

ARP: $700

After pulling out a breathalizer, she plays Double Prices for an Alaskan Cruise (Lanisha), which is either $3,521 or $4,718. She thinks the price of that cruise is $4,718; is she crusin' or losin'....she's cruisin'!

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Adam ($1,475): 45 + 80 = OVER
Tyava ($5,418): 45 + 15 = $.60
Curtis ($23,454): 55 + 75 = OVER

I hope Tyava can catch her breath, because she's in the Showcase!

We start the first Showcase with the words "all you can eat buffet". The place best associated with that is Vegas (Lanisha). Second, when you hear "movies under the stars", it means you could be watching movies under the skies with a new outdoor theater (Lanisha). Finally, when you hear "a different vehicle for each leg", the real meaning is a pair of Yamaha motorcycles (Rachael). This may be a Fireball Special Showcase Alert.

TYAVA PASSES TO ROSHNI; ROSHNI BIDS $13,500 ON MOTORCYCLES SHOWCASE

MY BID FOR MOTORCYCLES SHOWCASE: $15,500

For Tyava, we have prize labeling mistakes. First, we get a swim bear instead of new swimwear. Second, instead of offering some fake llamas (Lanisha), we're offering a trip to St. Thomas. And finally, in place of a ski goat (Lanisha), we have a Reinell 18" ski boat. All prizes are modeled by Rachael. I liked this Showcase much better than the first one.

TYAVA BIDS $28,950 ON TRIP/BOAT SHOWCASE

MY BID FOR TRIP/BOAT SHOWCASE: $25,150

ROSHNI'S SHOWCASE:
BID: $13,500
ARP: $21,967

DIFFERENCE: $8,467

TYAVA'S SHOWCASE:
BID: $28,950
ARP: $25,393
OVER- LOSS

Should've listened to my bid, Tyava; you would've been a Double Showcase Winner. Instead, Roshni wins the day and $25,820 in cash and prizes.

Greg Mahousai (Kalapana, HI)- Self-employed
Julia Lechtenberg (Rochester Hills, MI)- Registered school nurse
Dani Cardaro (Marina Del Rey, CA)- Wealth management assoicate

$2,000 Toss-Up category is Fictional Characters:

T _ _ _ E/B _ _ _ _/M _ C E

Greg triples up with THREE BLIND MICE.

Round 1 category is Occupation and out on the wheel now is a $5,000 San Diego trip. After Greg calls the Q, we have...

H E A _ _ - E Q _ _ _ M E N T

_ _ E R A T _ R

...he calls the P's for another $1,200, buys the O's, but is incorrect with HEART-EQUIPMENT OPERATOR, not keeping track of the board. That allows Julia to steal HEAVY-EQUIPMENT MANAGER for $2,300.

DUDS: G (while Dani was on Free Spin after calling a $2,500 H) L, S

IHOP Jackpot Round category is Same Name. Julia hits a Bankrupt after calling a pair of T's for $1,400. Midway in the round, Dani calls an M for the trip and we have...

_ _ T E R - _ _ _ _ E R/&/

_ . S ./M _ _ T

...but she then spins the right Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge to lose the trip and $1,450. Greg calls an $800 F but calls a dud in L. Julia hits Lose a Turn. Dani calls the N's for $1,500, buys the A, calls a $400 D, and solves AFTER-DINNER & U.S. MINT for her first $1,650.

DUDS: L
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Julia, Dani)

Campbell's Soup Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round category is What Are You Doing? Dani starts out with a pair of N's for $7,000. Later, she hits the Mystery Wedge next to the Million Dollar Wedge and calls a $1,000 H; she declines to flip it over (good, because Bankrupt's behind it). Unfortunately, she then loses $8,700 to a Bankrupt. Greg then calls a P for the MDW but then misses with K. After Julia then calls the S's, we have...

_ S _ _ P I N G/TO/T H _/

I S _ _ N _ S

...she buys the A's and E's but then spins Lose a Turn. Dani then solves ESCAPING TO THE ISLANDS, and she'll soon be escaping on a trip to St. Croix worth $8,900, for a new total of $10,550 in cash and trip. The MDW is now out of play for the night.

DUDS: K
BANKRUPTS: 1 (Dani)

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: SB0935566

$3,000 Toss-Up category is Food & Drink:

_ H _ _ R Y

_ _ M _ T _ E S

Dani solves CHERRY TOMATOES to add on to her leading total, now at $13,550. Speed-Up Round category is Phrase after Greg puts up the T's and the remaining consonants are worth $1,400 apiece. After Dani calls the H...

W _ U L D N ' T/HURT/_/_ L _

...she solves WOULDN'T HURT A FLY to solidify her match victory at $16,350. Greg leaves with $3,000 and Julia leaves with $2,300.

DUDS: C, M, S

Big Money Round: Dani spins the P and the category is Place. Starting with:

_ _ N T _ _ E

_ _ _ N T

She calls D, M, H and A and gets...

_ A N T A _ E

_ _ _ N T

...she doesn't reach the necessary VANTAGE POINT (she started to say VANTAGE but didn't get it out entirely), so she isn't the second straight car winner.

Everybody in each day's audience this week gets a $5 PETCO gift card.

Jeopardy!: Geoff Moore's going for more tonight as these two challengers try to stop him:

Rich Smreker (North Olmstead, OH)- Recording specialist
Lydia Haile Fassett (Providence, RI)- Latin teacher

Opening categories:

THE PRESIDENT AS KING
COLLEGE ATHLETICS
I'M SERVING "T"
FOREIGN STATES (the country must be IDed in each correct response to the two given cities in each clue)
HOOK, LINE & SINKER
NEW WORDS IN THE OED

Moore's trying to sweep Foreign States. The $1,000 clue there:

Gombe & Lagos

He's in first with "What is Nigeria?"...SWEEP! He now has $5,200. At the first break, he moves up to $5,600, Smreker has $2,200 and the teacher has $200. Late in the round, he hits five figures but Fassett finds the Daily Double under the last clue of the round, the $1,000 one in New Words in the Oxford English Dictionary. With $3,200 and a $200 lead over Smreker for second place, she wagers IT ALL on this:

Punning on an older word, it's the refusal to buy a certain product, but done by women only.

"What is a girlcott?"...ends the round for her on a very good note with a new total of $6,400!

ROUND 1 LACH TRASH: $200

DJ! Categories:

I'M AN ANIMAL
FROM THE NECK UP
SONG LYRICS
WHAT A CONCEPT
FLIGHT OF THE CONCORDES
SPOT THE MISSPELLED WORD (three words are given and the players must pick the one that's misspelled)

Moore's trying for his second sweep of the night, this time in Song Lyrics. Here's the $2,000 clue:

She intoned, "So, like, I don't know (Valley Girl), I'm like freaking out totally (Valley Girl), oh my God!".

Smreker spoils the sweep by getting "Who is Moon Zappa?", taking him to five grand at this point. The champ then finds the first Daily Double under the $1,200 From the Neck Up clue with $17,800 so far. Fassett has $8,400 and Smreker has $6,600. He wagers $2,200 on a clue told by Jimmy:

Because the first certical vertica supports the head, it's called this, like a certain mythical titan.

"What is Cracket?"...but it's actually Atlas, dropping him to $15,600. After hitting the 20 grand mark later on, he finds the other Daily Double under the $2,000 Flight of the Concordes clue with $20,800; Smreker has $4,200 and Fasset has an even $4,000. His wager this time is just $800 on this:

Four Olympus 593 turbojet engines from this British auto company powered each Concorde.

"What is Rolls Royce?"...is right to go to $21,600; I didn't know they were something other than a car company!

DJ! LACH TRASH: $5,200
