1/6/2010 Results

LMAD: There's nothing but men involved in this first deal, like Jeffory (dressed as a pet lion) and Craig (dressed as a Samurai). Their first choice is either a golden envelope or the big box, the latter of which has at least two items. They go with the envelope...inside the box was a snowboarding package worth $2,230. Their second chance to trade the envelope away comes with Curtain #1, which has at least three items inside. They stick with the envelope, and behind the leftmost curtain was exactly three...piles of rocks! Finally, with the two men now on their own, they're given the option of going all the way with whatever the envelope's contents are or Curtain #2's prize, which has at least one wheel. Craig & Jeffory both try the middle curtain...they gave back $1,400 for a Kawasaki Ninja package worth $4,583! PERFECT DEAL!

Our third trader is Ashley (dressed as Captain Morgan). After Jonathan brings down the red small box with a rose next to it serving as its clue, she's first offered $400, followed by $500 and $700, but she's taking the box...and she's won a $9,400 trip to Argentina! This deal will continue later in the show.

Here come two more ladies- Lucrecia (dressed as a quarterback) and Sonya (dressed as a Christmas elf). Jonathan brings down some cereal with some money inside it; Lucrecia can either have that or a jewelry box that Jonathan's also holding. She takes the cereal, so the jewelry box belongs to Sonya. Lucrecia next turns down this behind Curtain #1...a pair of red retro kitchen appliances worth $7,290. Her amount of cereal cash is...$275. Sonya's then asked to open her jewelry box, which has a real/fake diamond necklace inside. At this point, she can keep that and hope it's real or trade it away for the ring inside the blue small box (Jonathan). Sonya buys the box...her necklace was a FAKE one worth $60! Inside the box is...a keyring with the key to a Scion xD ($15,470)(Curtain #3)!

Next to make a deal is Roseann (wearing camouflage clothing and some reindeer antlers on top of her head). This time, the clue flower is a yellow rose, and it's beind held by Alison at Curtain #2. After being initially offered $500 and $600, she lastly turns down $800 because she knows that flower stands for "friendship"...unfortunately, she gets a sad one with Jonathan, because she's the first contestant today to get ZONKED. We'll have one more round of this deal later on.

In the couples deal of the day, Jennifer & Joseph play the $10,000 Seven Envelopes Deal with the blue small box. Remember, one envelope has the $10K check, another has a $1K check and another is worth $500; the other four envelopes have ZONKS inside them.

1. Sunglasses
Found: YES- ELIMINATES ENVELOPE #2

2. At least two pieces of makeup
Found: YES- ELIMINATES ENVELOPE #4

3. $.81 in change
Found: NO

Afterwards, they pick Envelope #3. They can either hold on to it or give it back for a Pier 1 Imports home office at the big box (including a Sony VAIO desktop computer system) worth $2,481. Jennifer & Joseph take the furniture...if they had gone all the way, they would've only won $500. The 10 grand was in Envelope #5.

Our next deal is called Spell Me a Deal, which involves Alexis (dressed as a doctor), Casey (dressed as a police officer) and Jean Claude (wearing lots of Caution tape). The first letter of the mystery prize is S. Alexis gives Jean Claude what's inside the blue small box (Jonathan), after he turns down $500 for it...several ZONK energy drinks. The second letter is U, and Alexis keeps her board. That means Casey can have Curtain #3, unless she wants $500 or $600 for it. She stays with the curtain...and wins a Beatles video gaming package that includes a 40" LCD HDTV and the entire CD catalog from said rock band worth $4,009! After the third letter is revealed to be a B, Alexis is offered $700, $800, $900, $1,200 and $1,500 this time, but she's hoping for a SUBARU car...ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE, MA'AM- it's an Impreza Wagon valued at $18,812 (Curtain #2)!

To conclude the morning's regular deals, Lise (dressed as a reindeer) sees the blue small box with a white flower nearby. She's given the choice of that or a $1,400 Panasonic HD camcorder. Lise wants the box after some thought, but Wayne Brady raises the stakes by offering $600 and the camcorder. Lise then has the cash offer upped to $800 before taking that and the camcorder...but that will cost her a 10-day Netherlands Cruise worth $11,500.

THE BIG DEAL: Ashley gives up her Argentina plane tickets for a chance to win today's Big Deal worth nearly $30K- $29,136, to be exact. She takes Door #3 because three's the number of the other members of her family...DOOR #2 HAD THE BIG DEAL THIS TIME. She leaves with $2,111 from the Bank Vault. Let's see what the rest of the loot was:

Door #1: Outdoor patio furniture ($7,740)
Door #2: Bayliner ski boat

Had Ashley gone with that popular middle door, we would've broken the daily winnings record with over $79K in cash and prizes. At least we still gave away $52,702 in cash and stuff today!

TPIR: Alexander Hiley, Jonna Decker, Justin Walter and Tyler Noriggon all "Come On Down" first before we see the first IUFB, a BBQ (Manuela behind the splitting sign). BTW, Amber Lancaster is nowhere to be found today, so that's good news, I guess (espescially after what she did yesterday on Switch?).

Tyler: $1,200
Justin: $625
Jonna: $875
Alexander: $876

ARP: $1,999

Tyler, an 18-year-old college student from Indiana, plays One Right Price for a lounge chair/ottoman (Manuela) and an Almost Heaven Spa (Gwendolyn). That leaves Rachel with today's ORP of $2,466, and he has that placed on the chair/ottoman...he's a winner! The spa was valued at $3,695.

The fifth name on Rich's list is Montelle Bello and the second IUFB is a pair of digital cameras (Gwen & Rachel).

Montelle: $1,200
Justin: $500
Jonna: $550
Alexander: BUCK

ARP: $780

If stay-at-home mom Jonna doesn't go Bonkers, she'll take those cameras on a trip to St. Thomas (Manuela at the audience screen). Board:

7 3 5 4

1. LHHL- NO
2. LHLH- WIN!

ARP: $4,548. She was yet another one of those slow players, though.

Coming out of the audience sixth is Geri Spearmint and the third IUFB is a bar set (Manuela behind GPT).

Geri: $1,600
Alexander: $1,200
Montelle: $1,550

Justin: $1,201

ARP: $1,887

Whether she personally has good or bad breath, the retired Geri from Valejo, CA will play Lucky $even for a 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt LS Coupe XFE (Std., AT, Stereo, Prot, Mats)(Rachel)...but she 4s out of the game by the third digit. The ARP was $18,139. That's just the second time this season this game has been lost when played for a car worth less than $20K (it's also the cheapest car offered here so far this season).

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Geri ($1,887): Quarter + 85 = OVER BY A DIME
Jonna ($5,328): WINS $1,000!
Tyler ($8,160): 95 + 45 = OVER

Jonna finally gets for her Bonus Spin...50 cents.

Our next player is Rochelle Hicklin and the fourth IUFB is a selection of designer women's accessories (Rachel at the clam).

Rochelle: $1,500
Alexander: $1,100
Montelle: $1,350
Justin: $850


ARP: $1,182

Alexander, a Loyola Marymount University senior originally from San Diego, plays Take Two for a Largo dinette (Manuela), a Dell computer system (Rachel), the Inspire Fitness multi-stationed home gym (Gwen & Rachel) and a Wanamaker Music 19" LCD TV. The target today is $3,294. His first picks are the computer and the TV, after originally choosing the gym instead of the TV. The computer is $2,017 and the TV is $614, for a total of $2,631. Alex then swaps out the TV for the dinette, which must be $1,277 for him to win...but it's only $1,099 for a final losing total of $3,116. He should've taken the dinette and the home gym, which had a price tag of $2,195.

The next participant is Kathryn Hepbell and the next IUFB is a Cabinets To Go! bathroom vanity (Gwen behind rising sign).

Kathryn: $1,000
Montelle: $2,500
Justin: $2,100
Rochelle: $2,501

ARP: $1,001

Since she was just a buck off there, Kathryn, a doctor from Brisbane, Australia, gets a chance to win 25,000 of them playing Punch a Bunch (Manuela holds the big bill). The SPs in this playing are modeled by Rachel.

1. Foot spa
IS NOT: $85
PICK: LOWER- $99


2. Mini vending machine
IS NOT: $100
PICK: LOWER- $130

3. "Guitar Hero" keychain
IS NOT: $25
PICK: LOWER- $15

4. Jawbone Bluetooth earwear

PICK: HIGHER- $139


She punches out holes #14 and #38. First, #14 has...$500. She throws that away for #38...and loses $400.

The last name Rich calls out is Glenda Stewart and the final IUFB is a car stereo system (Manuela at the turntable). Justin's been here the whole show.

Glenda: $900
Montelle: $1,300
Justin: $950
Rochelle: $1,500

ARP: $1,342

GETTING THE CELEBRITY BOOT: Justin

Montelle plays That's Too Much, aka "Pick the Second or Ninth Price", for a 2010 Subaru Forester 2.5X (Gwen).

6. $18,990
7. $19,980
8. $20,442
9. $22,891

ARP: $21,290.

I have no problems with today's lineup.

Kathryn makes it to the Showcase with 90 cents. For the record, here were the other scores in the second Showcase Showdown:

Alexander: $.80
Montelle: 20 + 40 = $.60

The first Showcase has these three four-wheel prizes- a Polaris ATV (Gwen at Door #1), a pair of Honda off-road bikes (Rachel at Door #3) and a 2010 Ram 1500 SLT Crew Cab 4X2 (Std., 5.7L, Big Horn, Seat, Hitch)(Manuela at Door #2).

JONNA BIDS $36,790 ON FOUR WHEELS SHOWCASE- STAGE GARF (Barely covers the truck, if ever)

MY BID FOR FOUR WHEELS SHOWCASE: $45,895

Kathryn plays for some finer things in life- a diamond tennis bracelet (Rachel), an exclusive wine class with a Sommelier (Rachel), a wine storage system (Rachel at Door #3) and a trip to Paris (Manuela at the audience screen).

Today's Consolation Prize: Capresso GS machine

WOF: Before I begin this recap, I just would like to let you know that Monday's Jackpot Round fiasco WAS mentioned on today's episode of "Live With Regis & Kelly"! Wednesday's first Toss-Up category is Person:

_ M A L _ - _ _ _ N

K I _

Brian's a SMALL-TOWN KID for $1,000. Tonight's players are:

Brian Milton (Branson, MO)- Sells vacations to his hometown
Valerie Mayne (Wakefield, MA)- University of New Hampshire junior majoring in Hospitality Management; has also been dancing since she was two years old
Marian Worbers (Pine Grove, AR)- Part of a big family that has 148 grandchildren, 80 great grandchildren and eight great great grandchildren

$2,000 Toss-Up category is Living Thing:

_ M P E _ O R

P _ N _ U _ N

Brian triples up with the EMPEROR PENGUIN.

Campbell's Jackpot/Prize Puzzle Round category is Song Title and out on the wheel now is a trip to the Loew's New Orleans Hotel worth $5,500. He quickly calls a dud in M. Secondly, Valerie hits the left Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge. Third, Marian calls three S's for $900 and buys an A, followed by an $800 T and the round's only dud vowel of E. Back to Brian, he calls a $300 R and buys four O's, then he lights up a $500 G but then duds out for the second time this round with N. Afterwards, Valerie calls a couple L's for $900 and purchases a couple A's, but she calls a dud in C while on the MDW. Marian then makes two H's appear for another $1,800 and we have...

S H O _ L _ / I / S T A _

O R / S H O _ L _ / I / G O

...she solves SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO from The Clash (although I thought I heard her add another I after OR; I might just be hallucinating) for three grand and a $7,000 trip to the Almond Beach Village in Barbados, giving her 10 grand in cash and vacation for this round.

DUDS: C (Valerie), E (Marian), $450 M (Brian), $900 N (Brian)
BANKRUPT: Valerie
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $9,600

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: EG6399143 (Elizabeth G. from Washington)

The next puzzle topic is Same Name. Valerie starts this round with a $550 R but then a dud of S. Marian secondly picks up the New Orleans trip with a T call, which is followed by a dud of her own, H. Then, Brian calls four N's for $1,800 and buys a trio of E's before Bankrupting (on the regular Bankrupt wedge) to lose the other $1,550. Valerie next misses out on picking up a DVD Empire.com gift tag with D for dud. Over to Marian again, she lights up a quartet of G's for $1,200 and buys an A and two I's, but she then Bankrupts to lose the trip and seven Benjamins.
Brian next spins Lose a Turn. Back to Valerie, who makes a $600 M appear and buys the last remaining vowel of O before we see this...

E N G A G E M E N T

& / _ O _ I N G

R I N G

...she solves ENGAGEMENT & BOXING RING for a C-note.

DUDS: D (Valerie), $500 H (Marian), $900 S (Valerie)
LAT: Brian
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Brian, Marian)

IHOP Mystery Round category is Food & Drink. To begin, Marian calls two T's for $1,100, three H's to make that an even two grand and buys an E and trios of I's and O's. But she then hits LAT. After Brian Bankrupts for the second time tonight, Valerie calls a pair of W's for $600 and buys an A to clean out the vowels, but we then have to clean out the remaining $350, because she gets the MDW's other Bankrupt; that's also her second Bankrupt of the night. Marian next spins the normal Bankrupt for the second time this evening. Now that we're quickly back to Brian, he calls an M for the gift tag, double C's for a grand, twin P's while on Free Play to double his cash bank for this round and then a D while on the Mystery Wedge in between FP and LAT. He adds yet another grand to his total, but that was the $10,000 one. But he ends up Bankrupting for the third time this night anyway to lose four large in cash and gift tag. Back over to Valerie, she gets a couple C's to appear for $600, followed by a $900 N, an $800 G and a trio of L's for an additional $1,800. The board now:

C L A M / C H O W D E R

W I T H / P I P I N G

H O T / R O L L _

She solves CLAM CHOWDER WITH PIPING HOT ROLLS for another $4,100 and $5,100 total.

LAT: Marian
BANKRUPTS: 4 (2 by Brian)

We're now looking for a Phrase on the $3,000 Toss-Up:

_ H A N _ E

_ _ / P _ _ E

Brian sweeps the Toss-Ups with CHANGE OF PACE to double his current cash to six grand and take over second place.

Speed-Up Round category is Thing and consonants are each worth $1,600; it's still anybody's game. After he makes an N pop up...

_ N / _ _ _ _ _ R E D

T _ S T E

...he will have AN ACQUIRED TASTE of Bonusland, because he's going there with $10,800! Marian leaves with $10K in cash and Barbados and Valerie goes home with $5,100.

So far, $25,900 in cash and trip has been given away tonight.

DUD: P (Brian)

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH: $12,100 in cash and merchandise

Big Money Round: The car that could be won tonight is the $27K Mazda MX-5 Miata. Brian Milton spins the ampersand and the category is Thing. We begin with:

_ L _ _ E

_ R _ N _ _

He calls C, P, D and O and gets...

O L _ _ E

_ R _ N C _

...he takes away $25,000 from our OLIVE BRANCH, for a final all-cash total of $35,800!

The car on offer all next week, according to the end-of-show promo, will be a Mini Cooper.

Video Bonus: "Catch 21" Blackjack Bonanza Win #6

Jeopardy!: Despite the fact that Jennifer Broders has won approximately $60K, she needs to beat these two opponents in order to get into Tournament of Champions contention:

Lysette Tidwell (Escondido, CA)- Dog rescuer
Carter Edman (Lakewood, OH)- Architect


The first six categories of the night are:

BAD TIME CHARLIE
LET’S HAVE A “BALL”
DESCRIBING THE NOVEL
YOU’VE BEEN TRADED

A PRAYER TO BE NAMED LATER
THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES (video clues by Alex Trebek himself from said place in Washington, D.C.)

Both ladies are tied for the lead with $2,800 apiece at the first commercial break, while Edman’s just $600 behind them. Later, Edman closes out A Prayer To Be Named Later with the Daily Double. He’s now ahead with $3,800; Tidwell trails him by just $400, while Broders has three times of a deficit. He decides to wager the face value of this clue:

A prayer of this Saint included the line “Who am I, Worm of the Earth…”; always with the animals.

“Who is St. Francis of Assisi?”…correct for a new total of $4,800! But when the round is over, Tidwell takes over the lead with $600 more than that; Broders’ third-place score now stands at $2,800.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $1,000
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,400
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $3,400

DJ! Categories:

WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON
ANIMALS IN MOVIES?
STATELY BOTANICAL GARDENS (two gardens are listed on each clue, and the U.S. state where we would find both of them must be identified)
VEGETABLES

REMEMBER 2009?
IT’S ALL GREEK TO ME

DD #1 is located by Edman with the $1,600 It’s All Greek To Me clue. He’s at $7,600, just $1,400 back of Tidwell for first place; Broders’ a close third with $6,800. His wager this time is $1,400. This clue could tie up the game temporarily:

Knowing Greek is helpful in studying Anatomy; for instance, pnevmonas is this organ.

“What is the lungs?”…he’s now tied up with the female challenger at $9K apiece! After nailing the $2K clue there to take sole possession of the lead with $11K, Tidwell solves the $1,200 Stately Botanical Gardens clue before finding the last DD of the evening under its $1,600 clue. Only $800 off the lead at this point in time, she also wagers a couple grand. To re-gain the lead, here’s the clue:

The Sarah P. Duke Gardens, Cape Fear Botanical Gardens

“What is South Carolina?”…she picked the incorrect Carolina, so she’s down to $8,200. We don’t have any time for the final clue of the round on William Lloyd Garrison.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $4,400
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,000
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $6,400

SCORES AFTER DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:

Jennifer: $7,600
Carter: $11,800
Lysette: $12,200

CORYAT SCORES:

Jennifer: $7,600
Carter: $12,000
Lysette: $14,200

We’re looking at a 4/5 FJ! betting situation tonight.

FJ! CATEGORY: Country Music Legends.

Before he was found dead January 1, 1953, the last single he released was “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive”.

Champion Jennifer Broders’ response to this was “Who was Hank Williams (Sr.)?”…right! The betting calculator suggested that she wager anywhere from $4,201-$6,799…but she didn’t wager a penny. Carter Edman…got the whole name right and bet four grand (that wager was just within the range of $3,401-$4,199, so his bank increases to $15,800 and Broders’ betting mistake won’t matter. Finally, Lysette Tidwell…is right also and risked $11,801 (she exceeded the suggested wager by $400) to win the title with $24,001! That means no ToC appearance for Broders, but she does leave with $60,801.

(Also: "Family Feud" had its first Chrysler 300C winners of 2010 this day with The Byers Family from Moreno Valley, CA. Alas, they also became the second family this season never to win Fast Money; on their last try today, they fell nine points short of $21,000, after missing out on $29K on Tuesday. Their final total in cash and car: $41,045.)

The View was on instead of Price in my area...but between $16,582 to $17,141 for a Forester? IT'S AN SUV, MONTELLE!! Enough said about only $559 between the prices...that's not even the biggest issue here.

If I were pretty high up in Subaru, I would take Montelle's guess for our proud Forester - Motor Trend's 2009 Sport-Utility of the Year - as a personal insult (i.e. it looks cheap).
