LMAD: The week concludes with Episode 1096. This morning's first two traders are Tina (dressed as an ice cream cone) and Kevin (dressed as a guy with a broken arm and a reindeer hat). On the red small box's tray (Alison) are two jack-in-the-boxes with money inside. Let's see which one they pick:
Kevin says goodbye to his box for Curtain #1...for a ZONK in the Box. That costs him $2,100. Tina hopes she did better with Curtain #2...I'm afraid NOT with a huge ship mine. She misses out on $3,400.
The third contestant is Alexander with a 120-count box of crayons (Jonathan). He can keep those crayons for now or take Curtain #3. His choice is the curtain, so as we give the crayons to Jennifer (dressed as a princess)...Alexander wins some patio furniture and a stainless-steel BBQ worth $5,454! We'll continue this deal later.
Next, Earleen from Salt Lake City (dressed as a flamingo) gets a chance to win a Beatles package that includes a trip to Liverpool, England worth $11,986 (Curtain #1). She's playing a streamlined version of Ca$h or Crash. Here, there are only two cards in each of the three decks. Five of the cards have money amounts from $100 to $500 (in $100 increments) on them, while the other one has a ZONK on it. If she can accumulate the entire $1,500, she'll also win the Beatles stuff.
1. #3- $500; GOES ON
2. #1- $300 ($800); GOES ON
3. #3- CRASH
Let's get back to the crayons deal with Jennifer. She gives the crayons to Erin (who has a golden shovel), meaning Jenny owns this behind the big box...a $2,800 home entertainment center headlined by the Samsung 40" LCD HDTV. Again, we must put this deal on hold.
The next three traders to come out of the audience are Jaymie (a guy wearing an afro), Jessica (wearing several hair curlers) & Tiffany. They get their choice of three envelopes. Let's see how each one starts off with:
Jaymie keeps his envelope, not wanting what's in the blue small box (Jonathan)...there are 12 BENJAMINS inside, meaning he's won a total of $1,210 instead of a square meal! Tiffany trades in hers for Curtain #2...there were only 12 SINGLETONS, so for $112, she's got herself a 30" double oven range, Sur La Table monthly cooking lessons for a year and some cookware, all worth $3,434! Finally, Tiffany's faced with two mystery things- her envelope or what's behind Curtain #3. She sticks with the bronze envelope...the curtain furthest to the right had a TOTALED airplane! Before we reveal what she's won, Niels (who's wearing a "Let's Put This Deal in the Hoop" sign around his neck) gets a chance to win a $100 bill if he can correctly predict what's in the last remaining envelope. He makes a good guess of a vacation...incorrect. The bad news is that there's nothing on the outside...the good news is that there's two checks worth $3,214 each, giving her a total of $6,428! PERFECT DEAL!
Today's couples deal involves Allison & Joshua (both wearing mostly blue); they've been together for half a year. They're shown these three Swedish words: Fisk, Matsal and Bil. Their word choice is Bil. Fisk stood for...FISH, which would've meant a net full of them all the way from Sweden (Curtain #1)! The English translation of Matsal was...a DINING ROOM worth $5,172 (Curtain #2). At this stage of the deal, they're first offered $500, followed by $700, $900, a grand, $1,200, $1,500 and two C-notes, but they're risking it. Wayne Brady then gives Joan (a lady who's wearing an American Flag shirt and holding such a flag) a shot at $200 if she can give the correct English translation of Bil. She agrees with Allison & Joshua that it's CAR...ALL THREE PEOPLE ARE RIGHT! That means Joan gets paid and Allison & Joshua have won the Hyundai Elantra ($14,865)(Curtain #3)! PERFECT DEAL #2!
As we get back to Erin, she keeps the crayons, meaning Laura from Celebration, FL (who is a doctor that's wearing a red wig) has been given...the Suzuki King Quad ATV ($5,849)! Erin's last opportunity to trade the crayon box away comes with these cash offers: $700 and $800. But she stands firm with the crayons...and becomes the final ZONK victim of the day.
THE BIG DEAL: The final grand prize package of the week is worth $21,145, and Laura is the one who takes a stab at it. I don't like her final choice of Door #2...WELL, WHAT DO I KNOW- she's won a Toyota Camry and a $1,000 gas card, meaning we have a winning Big Deal week for only the second time ever! I hope she didn't become a Toyota recall victim, though...
Door #1: Caribbean Getaway ($11,349)
Door #3: Portable digital video studio ($2,489)
We ended the week in style by giving away a grand total of $55,536 in cash and prizes!
TPIR: For only the fourth time ever, it's time for some couples to "Come on Down". Before I start this recap, I would like to make a note that Ian Leighton & Nancy Dippel from the first-ever Valentine's Day couples episode sold the '75 Corvette Stingray that they won playing Let 'Em Roll, thus adding even more money to the $11,000 they won off the Big Wheel just before their marriage proposal happened.
The first four couples on this special day this year are Joseph Henery and Rosanne Sanchez, Eric & Kimberly Scott, Ross Mercer & Laura Cartwright and Joshua Lang & Angela Waters. After Rich Fields announces Drew Carey as "your very own Cupid", the first IUFB worn by Amber (this is her first aired show back since her Switch? blooper) is a Hershey's Kisses diamond pendant/chain.

Since Joseph & Gisette overbid by $50, Denver & Rachel, who have known each other for seven years, play Most Expensive on a great new blue/orange/yellow set (with a ME logo on the floor and the three price tags; the S is replaced replaced with a "TPIR" dollar sign) for some Todd's handbags/scarves (Rachel), the steam shower (Lanisha) and his/her MacBook laptops (Amber; there are also some giant gold "Price" dollar sign transitions)! They're going with that shower...and we do indeed have a perfect first half with an ARP of $3,590! The designer clothing was $2,765 and the laptops were $3,048.
(Additional set note: The three ARPs in this game are now yellow amongst a blue background.)
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Denver & Rachel ($11,153): 15 + 55 = $.70
Eric & Kimberly ($12,444): $.95

Kinzie & Landon: $799
Laura & Ross: $1,300
Angela & Joshua: $1,500
Joseph & Gisette: $1,501
Joseph & Gisette redeem themselves to play Pick a Pair for a trip to Hershey (Amber at Door #4) worth $5,398.

Their first choice is the peanut butter...$2.99. Their second selection is the syrup...but that's only $1.99. Switching to the $1.99 pair now, they lastly pick the Twizzlers...and we have our fourth PG win of the day! Let's sincerely hope it's not the last.

That's a great guess, IMHO. But is it right???...
$ 1 9 , 3 4 2
...IT IS- WE HAVE OUR FIRST PERFECT SHOW OF THE SEASON ON THE VALENTINE'S DAY SPECIAL; I DON'T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe after today, we should only have couples shows around or at Valentine's Day- TAKE THAT, FINGERS!!!!
(Notes: I would've lost this playing- my two guesses were $19,140 and $19,162. Also, unlike the last time we had a PS, Drew mentions it!)
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Joseph & Gisette ($8,496): 20 + 85 = OVER BY A NICKEL
Angela & Joshua ($10,270; Joshua spins one-handed): Dime + 30 = $.40
Kinzie & Landon ($22,132): Dime + 15 = Quarter
Believe it or not, Angela & Joshua are in the Showcase with their four dimes!
Showcase #1 starts with another piece of Le Vian jewelry- a ladies' rasperry diamond ring (Amber). After you've put on that ring, enjoy a second honeymoon in Venice (Amber at Door #1; includes a 40-minute gondola ride). And finally, we didn't have a Showcase end like this on any of the three couples shows last season, but at least this first Showcase today does- a pair of cars behind Door #2!!! It's a Scion xD (Std., AT, Mats)(Lanisha) and a Jeep Patriot Sport FWD (Std., CVT)(Rachel)!
JOSEPH & ROSANNE PASS TO ANGELA & JOSHUA; ANGELA & JOSHUA BID 49 GRAND ON TRIPS/CAR SHOWCASE
MY BID FOR TRIP/CARS SHOWCASE: $53,300
Joseph & Rosanne's Showcase kicks off with a Le Vian men's ring (Rachel). After Joseph puts on that particular ring, their second honeymoon could be to Jamaica (Door #4; includes a raft ride down a river and a plantation visit). Finally, they could have a three-car garage, because they're also playing for a pair of automobiles behind Door #3- the Ford Ranger (Lanisha) and the Volkswagen Beetle (Std., AT, Sunroof, Wheels)(Amber)!!!
IN HONOR OF THEIR ANNIVERSARY, JOSEPH & ROSANNE BID $52,143 ON TRIPS/CAR SHOWCASE #2
MY BID FOR TRIPS/CAR SHOWCASE #2: $55,185
JOSEPH & ROSANNE'S SHOWCASE:
Please, for God's sake, don't let this outstanding episode end in a Double Overbid...
ANGELA & JOSHUA'S SHOWCASE:
...BUT IT DOES!!!!!!! OUCH. At least Joseph & Rosanne still leave with $24,559 in cash and prizes, while Angela & Joshua leave with $10,270 in stuff. If that DOB hadn't happened, this would've been the best episode of the season. Oh well.
To console everybody after that bummer, they're all getting a Hershey's gift bag (including the rest of today's audience).

WOF: On what will hopefully be a thrilling conclusion to the decade's first Sweethearts Week on this show, the first Toss-Up category is Place:
T _ _ _ _ L
O _ / L _ _ E
Jim & Lina know about going through the TUNNEL OF LOVE for $1,000. Our final couples panel of the week looks like this:
Jim & Lina Sonstrom (Henderson, NV)- Married for three years; Lina's an office manager for a local advertising company, while Jim's a self-employed concession seller for the city parks department
Allison & Greg Lull (Vegas)- Married for nearly two years; Allison's a designer for an architecture firm, while Greg's an Internet marketing firm manager
Marvis & Stephenie Pool (North Vegas)- Married for a decade; Marvis just turned 19
$2,000 Toss-Up category is Song Title:
_ ' _ / _
_ _ _ _ _ V _ R
Jim & Lina solve I'M A BELIEVER from the first "Shrek" movie to triple their money.
After a Costa Caribbean Cruise worth $5,550 sails onto the wheel, the category for this Eggland's Best Jackpot Round puzzle is Phrase. Jim & Lina first call an instant dud in T. Secondly, Allison & Greg call another dud with S. Third, Marvis & Stephenie call two N's for $1,800, a $2,500 R and buy three A's and two E's, then they light up two D's for another $600 before Bankrupting to lose $4,400. Jim & Lina then put up three L's for $900...
R E A D _
_ _ L L _ N _
A N D / A _ L E
...and they're READY, WILLING AND ABLE to solve this puzzle for another $1,100 and five grand total.
DUDS: $300 S (Allison & Greg), $600 T (Jim & Lina)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Marvis & Stephenie
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $9,900
Next, it's Before & After Time. Allison & Greg lead things off this round with two T's for a grand and the purchase of five E's, followed by three L's for another $1,200 and an I buy. Afterwards, they buy the only dud vowel on the board (A) to possibly give back $1,450 (which would have been augumented to two large at this point if they had solved the puzzle). Marvis & Stephenie then put up a couple B's for a grand and we have...
L I T T L E / B _ _
B L _ E
_ _ E E _ E
...they solve LITTLE BOY BLUE CHEESE to double that much cash and get on the board.
SOLE DUD: A (Allison & Greg)
Meineke Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round category is Fun & Games. Marvis & Stephanie open with a $550 S, two T's for the cruise and three R's for another $2,700 before heading to the vowel department to buy an E and three A's. Next, they light up a $300 F, purchase a couple O's and five I's to clean out the vowels, but after lighting up a $600 P, they hit the right Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge to lose $8,700 in cash and cruise; that's their second Bankrupt of the night.
After that, Jim & Lina call three N's for the Wild Card and...
_ I _ I N _ / I N
A / T R O P I _ A _
R A I N / F O R E S T
...they will be HIKING IN A TROPICAL RAIN FOREST on their $6,000 Caravan.com Tour of Costa Rica, for a new total of 11 grand in cash and tour.
SOLE BANKRUPT: Marvis & Stephanie
TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: TK5320890 (Tracy K. from Georgia)
Food & Drink is the last Toss-Up subject of the week:
T _ M _ _ O
J _ _ _ _
Jim & Lina solve TOMATO JUICE for a new total of $14K.
Next category is What Are You Doing? They first call a trio of N's for $1,200 but then Bankrupt out to lose that and the WC. Second, Allison & Greg call a pair of G's for $600 and buy two I's before we hear the Speed-Up bell...
G _ _ _ I N G / _ _ _ N
_ _ / _ _ _ I N _ _ _
...and the remaining consonants are all worth $1,350 each. After Allison & Greg light up triple T's...
G _ T T I N G / _ _ _ N
T _ / _ _ _ I N _ _ _
...they're finally GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS for $4,400! Marvis & Stephenie leave with a non-gooseegged two grand and Jim & Lina hang on to become the champs with $14K in cash and Costa Rica!
So far, $20,400 in cash and tour has been given away tonight.
DUDS (during Speed-Up): L (Marvis & Stephenie), R (Allison & Greg)
BANKRUPT: Jim & Lina
Big Money Round: For only the second time all season (both times so far have been during a road trip), we're in danger of a BONUS ROUND SHUTOUT. I really hope that The Sonstroms' late Bankrupt doesn't lead to doom here. Lina spins the second A in AMERICA'S and the category is Phrase. Starting with:
_ E _ _ N _
_ / _ _ _ _ T
I know it already, but do they even come close to matching my ESP? Let's find out right now. They call D, P, M and A and get...
_ E _ _ N D
A / D _ _ _ T
...do they win BEYOND A DOUBT in my mind?...
...YES!!! After not giving away the $30K the past three times, we give it away on the fourth and final shot, making their final total $44K in cash and trip! We conclude the Vegas road trip back at The Palazzo next week.
(Note: John Hoke's BR win cue will be used for the remainder of this road trip.)

OVERALL CORYAT SCORES IN TWO-DAY FINALS:
THE ALL-IMPORTANT FJ! CATEGORY: Biblical Kings.
These two men first meet in 1 Samuel 16 when one becomes aware of the musical talent of the other.
Let's remind all of you of the final scores from Part 1:
We are entering not only a 3/4 FJ! betting situation, but Stratton's Dilemma as well. Surya Sabhapathy wrote down "Who are David and Saul?"...we were looking for two names, and she got them both! Her suggested wagering range was $5,001-$5,600...and her wager of five grand is just a buck shy of that range's minimum, giving her a total of $13,800 tonight, meaning she won't be leaving with less than $26,600. Ryan Stoffers...is right also! Wagering anywhere from $10,600 to everything would be a good idea...but he only risked a grand, giving him $12,800 on the night and a final score of $27,600. It now comes down to Nick Yozamp from Washington University of St. Louis. Did he write down David & Saul?...
...NO, he said Ramses in place of Saul. If he risked $6,999 or less, the 100 grand is his. His big bet was...
...$3,801- WITH $10,799 TONIGHT AND $30,799 OVERALL, HE'S THE NEW "JEOPARDY!" COLLEGE CHAMPION!!!!!!! That means UCLA's Stoffers will get the $50,000 runner-up prize.
(Notes: Like the end of the last College Championship, the $100K graphic is the small silver one borrowed from "Wheel of Fortune". Also, at the end of this season's Teen Tournament, the $75K graphic was the same as the purple total winnings graphic for this season's "Jeopardy!" shows.)
Silent Library: The last six contestants to enter this lovely place for the chance to share in as much as $5,500 (as far as the aired challenges are concerned) are all sorority sisters, by golly:

While wearing some goggles and having her head on a ping-pong table, she has to get repeatedly hit by ping-pong balls from a ping-pong player (it didn't work the same way on "Captain Kangeroo" when the late Bob Keeshan told a knock-knock joke, resulting in a ton of ping-pong balls coming down from the ceiling) for 20 seconds.
RESULT: PASS ($300)
2. Stephanie's first task is called the "Lips Stick Spin". She has to have lipstick applied to her lips from a spinning lipstick wheel for the next :20.

RESULT: PASS ($4,100)
FINAL CHALLENGE OF THE SEASON: For the second time in three nights, we have a chance to set a new all-time high on this program. In this case, these women can conclude the second season in grand style by becoming the first-ever members of the $5,000 Club if Krystyn is able to survive the "Topped Dog" attack.
