P _ _ C I O U S

C A _ G O

Quentin unloads the PRECIOUS CARGO for $1,000.

$5,000-WINNING ID OF THE NIGHT: JA0014381

Tonight's contestants:

Quentin Manard (Miami, FL)- FSU student majoring in Psychology; also a member of their rugby club
Lilli Fool (Claremont, FL)- FAU student getting her Master's Degree in Elementary Education; former University of North Florida graduate
Peaches Brown (Tampa, FL; originally from Orlando)- Model/aspiring actress; also a girly girl tomboy

$2,000 Toss-Up category is Song Title:

_ T _ _ D / B Y

_ O _ R / _ _ _

Peaches solves the Dolly Parton classic STAND BY YOUR MAN for $2,000.

After a $6,000 Safari West adventure goes on the wheel, the Round 1 category is Before & After. Peaches lands on the Free Spin to start but she calls a dud in N. Quentin then calls an R for the Wild Card but then calls a dud in S. Lilli then calls a T for a $1,000 Bed and Breakfast.com gift certificate but then loses it back to a Bankrupt. Peaches next calls a $700 L but then hits the left Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge. Quentin then calls his second straight dud with G. Later, Peaches lands on $2,500 but she duds out with H. Quentin then calls a pair of F's for $800, buys the I, calls a $550 J and we have...

J I F F _

P O P

C U L T U R E

...he solves JIFFY POP CULTURE for another $1,100 and $2,100 total.

DUDS: A (Lilli), G (Quentin), H (Peaches), N (Peaches), S (Quentin)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Lilli, Peaches)

Tonight's Jackpot/Prize Puzzle Round is brought to you by Centrum Silver; category is Phrase. Midway in the round, Quentin calls two L's for the safari. After he cleans out the vowels, the board:

U N S _ O I L E D

N A T U R A L

S U R R O U N D I N _ S

In addition to another $4,050 and that safari, he'll also be visiting the UNSPOILED NATURAL SURROUNDINGS in Costa Rica from Caravan.com, which is worth $6,000 like the safari! He now has $18,150 in cash and trips.

PERFECT ROUND

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: HD0686312

Gold Bond Ultimate Lotion once again sponsors the Mystery Round; the category this time is Landmark. Lilli immediately lands on the Mystery Wedge next to Lose a Turn and calls an S. She flips...Bankrupt, which is her second of the night. A little later, Peaches calls three T's for $900 and the Free Spin, but she has to immediately use it after hitting Lose a Turn. After she calls the W...

_ E _ I L S / T O W E R

N A T I O N A L

M O N U M E N T

...she solves DEVILS TOWER NATIONAL MONUMENT for another $7,050 and $9,050 total.

LOSEs: 1 (Peaches)
BANKRUPTS: 1 (Lilli)

$3,000 Toss-Up topic is Place:

_ _ E _ A R ' S

_ _ L _ _ E

Quentin solves CAESAR'S PALACE to go to $21,150 in cash and trips. Speed-Up Round category is Living Things and consonants are worth...$1,300 apiece, so the Wild Card will be used in the endgame for the second straight night. After Lilli calls the G...

_ L L _ G _ T _ _ S / &

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ L _ S

...Quentin had this on the tip of his tongue but he couldn't get it out; Lilli therefore solves ALLIGATORS & CROCODILES for her only $3,900 on the night! Peaches goes home with $9,050 and Quentin wins with $21,150 in cash and trips!

So far, $34,100 in cash and trips has been handed out this evening.

DUDS: N (Peaches)

Big Money Round: Quentin spins the C in AMERICA'S and the category is Thing. It's a one-wordy, and we start out with:

_ L _ _ _ _ _ R _

He first calls CDMA, then picks G for his Wild Card Choice...

C L _ _ _ _ A R D

...looks like he needed to have called the P instead on his Wild Card Choice; it was CLIPBOARD and he is not the second straight $25,000 winner.

We then see a cockatoo and an owl at the end.

Jeopardy!: Can Eric LaForest do much better than last night, much less retain his title? Let's find out against:

Peter Murray (Seattle)- Non-profit fundraiser
Becky Anderson (originally from Morganton, NC)- Retired software specialist

The night's first six categories:

PRESIDENTIAL POTENT POTABLES
2027: THE YEAR IN ENTERTAINMENT
WAIST MANAGEMENT
DISCOVERIES
NUMBER PLEASE
"UP" WORDS

At the first break, LaForest leads with $4,400; Murray has two grand and Anderson has $1,400. Anderson closes out Number Please with the Daily Double; she's at $2,000, while Murray's down to $1,600 and LaForest's score hasn't changed since the first break. Her wager is $1,400.

Number of U.S. states that begin with the letter I.

"What is 4?"...good guess- that's right (Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa) to go to $3,400! At the end of the round, she's at $5,200 and in the lead by just $200 over LaForest; Murray's back to two grand.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $4,000
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $4,000

DJ! Categories:

LITERARY BEFORE & AFTER
CELEBRITIES IN OTHER WORDS
_____ & _____
"RU" THERE
GOD
IT'S ME, MARGARET

The first DD of this round belongs to Anderson under the $1,600 Literary Before & After clue; she now has $7,200 while LaForest's down to $2,600 and Murray has a grand less than him. Her wager this time is $2,800. For an even ten grand:

Sun Tzu meets Tolstoy on the battlefield in this classic strategy meets storytelling merger.

She blows it by not phrasing her response of "The Art of War & Peace" in the form of a question, so she drops to $4,400. She picks up $2,000 back to close out that category. Later, Murray finds the other DD under the $2,000 RU clue with $3,600; LaForest has $7,600 and Anderson's still ahead with $9,200. He wagers $3,000 on this clue:

In 2005 this New Mexico city was sued to remove the religious symbols from its official logo.

"What is Albuquerque?"...incorrect. It was Las Crucas, so he's pretty much out of it at $600.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $6,000
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $4,400
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $10,400

SCORES AFTER DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:

Eric: $8,200
Becky: $10,800
Peter: $1,400

CORYAT SCORES:

Eric: $8,200
Becky: $13,200
Peter: $4,400

FJ! CATEGORY: Sports Venues.

The last names found on these two sports venues, both in Queens, are anagrams of each others.

PETER:
Response: "What are Ashe + Shea?"
Wager: $1,398
Final score: $2,798

The champ...is right also and DOUBLES to $16,400! Ms. Anderson...










...also gets it and wins the championship with $16,401, extending the returning champion losing streak to seven shows and sending LaForest home with $11,762.

James: $600
Kristen: $300
Carlton: $601
Hala: BUCK (STUPID BID)

....Kristen was also a bad move in that case.

mcbriderb said...

Personally, I don't think Kristen's bid there was stupid because it was an Ashley dinette. Ashley Furniture is pretty cheap, and I've seen one of their dinettes offered quite a few times in Any Number worth $465.

Octavarium64 said...

If it were the last bid, it would be safe. Anywhere other than last and under $400 is a bad move.
