LMAD: Yesterday was THE WORST EPISODE OF THIS INCARNATION OF THE SHOW. I guaran-damn-tee Episode 1072 will be better.
Starting us off today are Aurora (dressed in red), Avrina (dressed as a pirate girl) and Kevin (dressed as a slice of pizza) in the deal called No Complaining. Alison brings out a big black designer handbag worth $1,395, which is given to Aurora to begin with. She can keep that and whatever contents are inside it or trade it for what's behind the big box. Aurora keeps the handbag...the bad news is that she missed out on the $8,773 Harley-Davidson, but the good news is that there's a grand in cash inside her bag! Avrina can either steal her cash and handbag or take Curtain #1. She takes away Aurora's loot...and in return, Aurora gets a Samsung 46" LCD LED HDTV and a home theater system that includes a TiVo (with a year's worth of service), all worth $4,368! Finally, Kevin can confiscate either of the ladies' prizes or go for the unknown behind Curtain #2. He wants the middle curtain, but Wayne Brady decides to first offer him $500, followed by $700, $900, $1,100 and $1,500. In the end, Kevin decides to keep this for good, after originally wanting the money...it's a Dodge Caliber worth $16,819!
Second is our couples deal of the day. Delmar & Tracy (both wearing tye-dye clothing) have a chance to win a second honeymoon trip to Whistler, BC from The Journeymasters (Curtain #1) worth $8,990. Jonathan brings down the blue small box's tray, which has these grocery items on it- Nature Valley Granola Bars, Pringles and Fruit Roll-Ups. To win the trip, they have to place those items in choronological order.
1. Pringles- 1968
2. Fruit Roll-Ups- 1983
The Sure Thing Jackpot is behind the big box, and it contains a trio of stainless steel kitchen appliances worth $3,997. After they talk it out, they're sure enough the granola bars were the most recent of the three...but they were actually introduced in 1975, so NO trip or kitchen for them.
Our next contestant is Sharron, who's told that the clue for Curtain #2 is Spring Break, and Curtain #3's clue is College. She choosing the Spring Break curtain with authority...unfortunately, she'll be spending the night in a trashed hotel room. The College curtain had a MacBook and a Blackberry Curb (with a year's worth of service and a messenger bag), a prize package worth $3,234.
Then, Dana (dressed as a New York Yankees fan) begins her deal with a C-note. Wayne next takes out a pair of numbered silver envelopes, one of which has a doubler, while the other one has a tripler. She picks #1...TRIPLE! Now comes a pair of golden envelopes. One of them has a doubler, while the other has a ZONK. She can either keep her $3,000, try to double her money or buy what's behind Curtain #1 for all her money. Dana stays with the three grand. Had she gone on with Envelope #1 again...she would have been ZONKED! But if she had gone with the leftmost curtain...she would've been the second car winner of the day with the KIA Forte ($16,690).
After allegedly hearing that Jonathan posted a comment on the CBS message boards that he can host this show better, Wayne gives him the chance to pick our next player, who is Francisco. He's given the choice of Curtain #2 or the right to roll a pair of dice for $100 a point; should he roll doubles, the cash will be doubled. Francisco choses to go to the dice table, so he definitely will not be taking home...a dining room group valued at $6,837. He ends up rolling...a nine, good for nine Benjamins. Then, Wayne gives Alison the right to pick the next trader, who turns out to be Yvonne (who's wearing a present box on her head). She doesn't feel like rolling for money, so she takes Curtain #3. Had she rolled the dice...she also would've won $900. Instead...she wins a trip to West Palm Beach, FL worth $6,402!
We close out today's regulation deals with Alexandria (wearing a peacock wig and several peacock feathers on her sweater). She's given the option of what's inside the green small box (Jonathan), with the clue of Mid-Life Crisis, or what's behind Curtain #1 with Retired being the clue. Alexandria chooses the curtain...by rejecting a ZONK toupee, she's won a check for $3,065!
THE BIG DEAL: Today's grand prize is the Mercedes C300 ($35,195). Kevin keeps his car, so it will be Yvonne trying to drive this one away. She's hoping it's behind Door #2...BUT IT'S NOT, so she leaves with $1,428 from the Bank Vault. Let's see where it was:
Door #1: MERCEDES
Door #3: Golf cart and some golf equipment ($7,154)
TPIR: Contestant's Row starts out with Julie Schloderbeck, Andrew Gaudy, Julian Smith and Bethany Olton from the University of North Dakota. The first IUFB is an Epiphone electric guitar being played by George Silva at the turntable (includes 10 private guitar lessons).
Julian plays Pick a Number (Lanisha) for a Beachcomber Hot Tub and 10 massages from a spa of his choosing (Amber). Board:
$ 8 4 9 _
NUMBERS AVAILABLE: 3, 5 & 7
Julian picks lucky seven for a guess of $8,497, wisely staying away from the trap answer of $8,495...
$ 8 4 9 7
...but he picked the wrong one (Lanisha did the reveal).
Coming on down fifth is Mario Flores and the second IUFB is a red retro dishwasher (Lanisha & Manuela).
Andrew plays Pathfinder for a Toyota Camry (Std., Bluetooth, Mats)(Amber at Door #3). Board:
The SPs modeled by Lanisha are:
Floating drink cooler: $30 or $45?
Doughnut maker: $125 or $150?
Grill/panini press: $49 or $60?
He's incorrect by stepping to the four as the second number in the price of the car. After knowing the doughnut maker is $150, he's wrong again on the second digit with six. His second SP choice is the floating drink cooler, and he guesses $30...correct, and he does get the three right as the second car digit this time ($ 2 3 , _ _ _). But that's all he ends up getting right- he then messes up by stepping to the five as the middle digit in the car price, and doesn't know the panini press is $49. ARP of the Camry: $23,149.
Our next contestant is Grant Fornier and the third IUFB is a men's Diesel watch coming down from the ceiling.
Bethany, originally from Minnesota, plays Swap Meet for some cookware (Lanisha), power tools (Amber), a daybed and the iMac computer system (Manuela). Since the cookware costs $670 (as it did in Ten Chances a while ago), Bethany needs to find the other $670 prize. She selects the power tools...and wins! The daybed was $1,535 and the computer was $2,529.
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Julian ($1,690): $.95
Andrew ($1,875): 70 + 45 = OVER
Bethany ($6,079): Dime + 70 = $.80
Julian goes to the Showcase.
Next to leave the mob is Therese McLaughlin and the fourth IUFB is a Schwinn Fitness eliptical trainer (Amber behind splitting sign).
Grant from Toronto, Canada plays the winless Hi-Lo for an Ashley bedroom (Manuela) worth $4,058. The groceries are La Creme Yogurt, a Nestle Butterfinger candy bar, RockStar Energy Drink, a box of garlic break, a bag of 40 Solo Clear Cups and Zatarine's Jumbalaya Mix. Drew decides to open up most of the items during Rich's descriptions and makes a mess!!! LOL! Back to the game, Grant's first choice is the yogurt...$2.69. He secondly picks the energy drink...believe it or not, it's only $1.99. His final guess of the garlic bread is worth...$3.59. The candy bar is 79 cents, the Zatarin's is $1.79...but the cups are $4.29, so he does indeed lose.
The third occupant of the orange podium is Alexandra Clapp from SDSU and the next IUFB is a pair of surfboards/wetsuits (Manuela at Door #3).
Mario: $350 (STAGE GARF)
Alexandra plays Switch? for maid service for a year marked at $3,500 (Amber) and a trip to Disneyland marked at $2,820 (Lanisha). She makes the Switch...well, guess what- instead of helping out switching the prices, Amber inadvertantly reveals the price of the maid service, which is $3,500!!! That results in both an edit and a TECHNICAL WIN! Give Amber the gong, for Pete's sakes!
Video Bonus: Goofiness in Hi-Lo and Switch?
Hoping that he won't mess up quite as much is Romayne Werestrong and the final IUFB on the train (conducted by Lanisha) is the quartet of black tires/wheels (Amber). Julie's been here the whole morning, but she will bid last in this final round.
Mario: $4,900 (STAGE WILLY)
ARP: You guessed it- $2,900
TODAY'S CLUBHOUSE MEMBER: Julie
Because Romayne kept that orange spot hot in the end, she'll play Money Game for a Mazda3 (Std., Prot, Compass/Homelink)(Lanisha at Door #3). Board:
MIDDLE NUMBER: 5 ($ _ _ , 5 _ _)
After starting her MG bank with $22, she gets 21 as the front of the car ($ 2 1 , 5 _ _). Her next pick is 49...good guess, but that has a dollar sign behind it. Then, she goes with 54...she adds more money, for a new total of $125. Instead of going with 95 on her last choice, Romayne's last stop is 62...she's won the $21,562 Mazda! She must've known about the paint/fabric protection rule here; excellent!
(Note: She does NOT go to see her Mazda3 after winning it.)
My lineup today:
1. Swap Meet
2. Money Game
3. Pick a Number
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Grant ($999): Dime + Half-Dollar = $.60
Alexandra ($7,864): $.95
Romayne ($24,587): Half-Dollar + Dime = $.60

Today's Consolation Prize: Eviant portable TV
WOF: Last night, we had one of the most memorable moments in this show's long history, although it wasn't that good- we had a whopping FOUR incorrect responses on the Jackpot Round puzzle REGIS PHILBIN & KELLY RIPA (half of which came via unacceptable pronunciations of the word RIPA). And no, that talk show duo didn't mention the incident on their show, at least not today.
Anyway, we're on the Pet Lover's Week set tonight, so tonight's car on offer will be the Honda Element. The first Toss-Up category is On the Map:
C _ I C A _ O
_ _ _ I N _ I S
Jeremy solves the home of Andy Manh Nguyen and Pat Sajak, CHICAGO ILLINOIS, for a grand! Here's tonight's panel:
Jeremy Woertz (Oceanside, CA)- A music high school teacher, musician and the owner of two pugal puppies named Diego & Roxxi
Debbie Erskin (Novi, MI)- Health systems patient assistant at the University of Michigan
Alexia LaSalle (Columbus, NJ)- Public relations worker for a major apparel brand
$2,000 Toss-Up topic is TV Title, and it's a one-liner:
T O _ / _ _ _ F
Most recently won by Michael Voltaggio, Debbie knows the reality game show we're looking for is TOP CHEF for $2,000!
After a trip to the Hotel Mela in NYC (includes tickets to "The Fantasticks") worth $5,653 appears on the wheel, the Campbell's Jackpot Round category is Family. Let's see how much of an improvement this Jackpot Round is. Debbie first calls a $500 N while on Jackpot, a $400 T, and buys three A's before calling two L's for another $1,800, two S's for another $600 and we have...
_ A _ _ - _ A T _ / &
A S _ L _ _ / _ L S _ N
...she solves MARY-KATE & ASHLEY OLSEN, best known from their days on the sitcom "Full House", for another $3,050 and $5,050 total!
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $7,100
Before & After is the next round's category. Alexia opens this round with a $500 T and purchases three E's, followed by a $550 H, a couple R's for another $800, but then a dud of S. Jeremy's second in line with a pair of F's for $900 and the buying of three O's to clean out the vowels, then he lights up a $300 C, two D's for an additional $600, but then hits a Bankrupt to lose $1,550. Debbie then rings in with only one blank remaining...
D O _ E
O F F
T H E / R E C O R D
...her guess of DOZE OFF THE RECORD...is correct for a new total of $6,050 (I thought the first word was DOVE).
DUD: $900 S (Alexia)
IHOP Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round category is Phrase. Jeremy leads off with three T's for $1,650, buys a pair of E's, calls a $600 N and purchases five O's. Afterwards, here's the board now...
_ T / _ O O _ _
_ _ _ E / _ ' _ _ / _ E
O _ T / O _ / T O _ N
...he rightfully admits IT LOOKS LIKE I'LL BE OUT OF TOWN, because he's won another $1,750 to possibly spend on his trip to the Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort in St. Maarten worth $6,310, giving him the lead for the moment with $9,060 in cash and vacation.
TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: SP0479645 (Suzanne P. from California)
The last Toss-Up is a one-wordy, and the subject is Living Things:
W _ L D _ _ _ W _ R S
Debbie solves WILDFLOWERS to come within 10 bucks of the lead!
Next category is Place. She first calls double N's for $1,600 and buys an A and triple O's, which is followed by a $300 F, an $800 L, but then a Bankrupt to forfeit $2,200. Alexia secondly puts up a $500 D but then duds out with the only bad vowel on this board, E. Jeremy next lights up twin P's for a C-note...
L A N D / O F
O P P O _ _ _ N _ _ _
...and in this LAND OF OPPORTUNITY, he solves this puzzle to slightly add on to his leading total, which now stands at $10,060.
We next ask the question What Are You Doing? Alexia, who still hasn't gotten on the board yet, starts off things here with a couple N's for a grand and the buying of two I's, then she calls the G at the end of the first word for another $600. After making two P's appear for another $700, she buys a dud vowel for the second time tonight with E. Jeremy then Bankrupts for the second time this evening. Over to Debbie, who calls the M for $400...
P _ M P I N G
I _ _ N
...and she's PUMPING IRON to again come within $10 of Jeremy at $10,050!
DUD: E (Alexia)
After our current leader Jeremy first makes double R's appear in the next puzzle for $600 before Bankrupting for the third and final time this night, the Speed-Up Round category is Food & Drink...
_ R _ _ _
_ _ _ _ R
...and the remaining consonants are worth $1,300 apiece. After Debbie calls the G...
_ R _ _ _
S _ G _ R
...she solves BROWN SUGAR for the championship with $11,350! Jeremy leaves with $10,060 in cash and trip and Alexia gets the $1,000 gooseegg prize.
Despite some great gameplaying, only $22,410 in cash and trip has been given away thus far tonight.
DUDS (during Speed-Up): M (Debbie), T (Alexia)
TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH: $4,350
Big Money Round: Debbie spins the I in SPIN and the final topic is Thing. Starting with:
_ _ _ E _ T
_ _ _ _
She calls C, D, G and O and gets...
_ _ _ E _ T
_ O O D
...she keeps an UPBEAT MOOD, even though she missed out on $35,000. She leaves with $11,350; it's unfortunate she didn't win a lot more, because she was a pretty good player.
Jeopardy!: Tonight, Jennifer Broders defends her title for the first time against:
Kelly Loughead (Mason, OH)- College freshman
Dave Artusi (Colorado Springs)- Bond trader
The first six categories on this Tuesday are:
U.S. TERRITORIES & AREAS
IS THIS A RERUN?
HEALTH & BEAUTY
“M” & “M” (each correct response is two words long, with both words starting with that letter of the alphabet)
On the fourth clue of the evening, Broders uncovers the Daily Double under the $800 “M” & “M” clue after getting the $400 and $600 clues there, while Artusi got the night’s opening clue. To double her C-note, here’s the clue:
The visitors’ center for this author’s house is at the corner of Peachtree St. & Peachtree Place.
“Who is Margaret Mitchell?”…that’s $2,000! She’s up to five grand and in Lock Game Territory at the first break; Artusi’ s second-place score is now $1,800 and Loughead’s $600 behind him. At the end of the round:
LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $4,400
NONCREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE
IF JUDD APATOW ADAPTED THE CLASSICS
HAVE SOME CAKE OR PIE
HE’S “R” MAN
Broders’ still in LGT by the time she finds the first of the DDs under the $1,200 Have Some Cake or Pie clue with $10,200. This time, she wagers nearly half her bank, five grand, on the following clue:
Though North Floridians wanted pecan pie as the state pie, this one from Southern Florida ruled the day.
“What is Key Lime?”…good guess, and it’s right to jump to $15,200! The last DD of the night is found by Loughead with the $1,600 On _____ clue; she has $3,800, just $400 ahead of Artusi for second, but Broders has pretty much put this game on ice with $22,800. She bets two grand.
Impatient, or sitting on a U2 guitarist.
“What is on the edge?”…all we needed there was “edge”, but her response is acceptable to increase her bank to $5,800. Time runs out before we can see the $400 Judd Apatow clue.
DJ! LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $10,400
SCORES AFTER DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:
Jennifer: $25,200 (lock game!)
FJ! CATEGORY: Art History.
