The second pair of contestants are Ryan (dressed as a cowboy) and Sarah (dressed as Cindy Lou Who). They get to pick from two checkbooks, one of which is worth triple the value of the other:
Sarah turns down the blue small box...good for her- because she passed up a trio of Jonathan bobbleheads, she has a check worth $300. Ryan, however, gives back his checkbook for what's behind Curtain #3. He had a check worth...$900, but he does win a motorcycle worth $4,999!
Third, Camille (dressed as a cell phone with Wayne Brady's picture on it!) plays the Latitude/Longtiude Deal for trips to Bermuda and Jamaica (the former of which is provided by The Journeymasters) worth a total of $14,538 (Curtain #1). Here are the given latitudes/longtides:
Bermuda: 32' 20'N, 64' 45' W
Jamaica: 18' 15 N, 77' 30' W
After Camille leaves it as is, she turns down $500, $700, $800 and $1,000 to press on...AND SHE'S A WINNER- PERFECT DEAL!
The next three traders are Rachel (dressed as a bottle of ketchup), Kristine (dressed as a hot dog) and Shera-Kasuni. In this deal, two of them will make a deal with the other woman. First, Kristine & Shera-Kasuni give Rachel $800 instead of what's in the red small box...the $2,100 at&t GoPhone package. Secondly, Rachel & Shera-Kasuni also have Kristine paid the same amount of money. Left behind in the green small box was...a white gold diamond necklace worth $2,445. Third, Rachel & Kristine complete the $800 sweep with Shera-Kasuni, so nobody will be getting the following in the blue small box...an 11" Sony VAIO laptop and an Olympus digital camera worth $2,550. Finally, Rachel's the only one to take TBR with Curtain #3, because her husband (who is dressed as a bottle of mustard) told her to...but she ZONKS OUT OF THE GAME with a giant Jonathan bobblehead.
It's Poetry Corner time! Let's hear the first poem from Jonathan, which is going to Christina (who's dressed as a bunny):
Christina, Christina, you're such a nice little bunny,
Through the green fields, she runs ready.
You could feel good and get your fill,
When you fire up your brand new _______.
Even though she thinks all that's behind Curtain #1 is a giant $100 bill, Christina rejects $500...she's wrong, but in a good way, for a patio and grill that has a total value of $3,013! Here's the second one for Rodney (who's wearing a shower cap):
Because of demand, castle is your home,
Sometimes you need a place to call your own.
A place to play foozball, a place to play "Doom",
A place to see Lara Croft running through a tomb.
A place where you can see Mario go "boom",
Some people might call this place your ___________.
Rodney's guess is a living room, but he quickly trades it for $500...he's incorrect on both accounts- it was a giant game room package that included the Samsung 46" LCD HDTV, an XBOX360 system, a ping-pong table and a refridgerator, all worth $5,090.
The last regulation player of the week is Weston (who is a college student dressed as a cowboy and is holding a hobby horse). For being the first person out of a group of four to pull out his driver's license, he will start off with $500. He's then asked a question about the license:
What's the last digit of your driver's license number?
He guesses nine...NO, it was eight. Afterwards, he says goodbye to Curtain #3's contents...a trip to the Bondurant School of High-Performance Racing worth $4,569.
THE BIG DEAL: A $25,826 Big Deal could be won by Christina in the next few moments. She chooses Door #3. Behind Door #1 was a wooden dining room set valued at...$6,300. Door #2 had the Bank Vault. Tiffany Coyne opens its door to find...$1,787 in there! That means Christina has just won...a trip to The Omphoy Ocean Resort in Palm Beach, FL and a KIA Soul from Glendale KIA! It's also the largest BD win in about three months! Friday's combined winnings: $51,019!
TPIR: Starting us off on this Friday are Kelsey Williams from the University of Central Florida, Virginia Decker, Byron Broadie and Tammy Gilmer. The first IUFB is a 13" MacBook (Manuela & Rachel).

BrainSurge: I believe these are the last six Brainiacs we will see this season:
Zoe- A girl who has a double-jointed arm and thumb (whereas I have a double-jointed body)
Dylan- Has played basketball with Magic Johnson
Carl- Aspiring politician
Jazzy- An award-winning female gymnast
Adam- A boy whose boogers/snot come out after he laughs so hard
Kenzie- A woman who thought her hair was darker; she also does impressions of Paris Hilton
For 10: Which of the three penguins ate the most fish while skiing- green, red or blue?
Believe it or not, Zoe's the only one right. Everybody else but Adam locked in the red penguin.
For 20: Which number appeared twice while Jeff was launching some fireworks?
Jazzy was five short.
For 30: Which number on all of the shoes the three Jeff dancers were wearing was the lowest?
Jazzy & Kenzie both went over by five.
For 40: What was the correct spelling of the word in the spelling bee- "trikaptilosis", "trichoptilosis, "trycoptilosis" or "trickoptilosis"?
Kenzie was incorrect with "trycoptilosis", while Dylan missed with "trickoptilosis".
For 50: How many fish were in the school of fish?
Zoe stays perfect! Both Adam & Kenzie were four short, Jazzy was three shy and Carl & Dylan each came just one short of scoring. Heading into the last visual puzzle of the season, here are the non-Zoe scores now:
T2. Adam & Carl- 90 each
4. Dylan- 50
5. Jazzy- 40
LAST PLACE: Kenzie- 20
FOR 100: Which of the four Jeffs ate a garlic bulb?
Zoe DOES NOT complete the last Level 1 sweep of the season with an incorrect response of #2, but she's still going through to the next round. The ones who were right and are joining her are Adam, Carl & Kenzie. Dylan (who locked in the same guess as Zoe) & Jazzy (3) will each receive the "Avatar Book 1 Collection" and the slme bucket for their appearances on the show.
Level 2: The last set of things the Brainiacs have to memorize on this show for Season 1 are animals.
Zoe: DQ- REPEATED SQUIRREL
Kenzie: DQ- REPEATED OTTER
The other four animals were the weasel, tarantula, mouse and the elephant.
KO Round: The last eight matches are #1 & #12, #2 & #11, #3 & #5, #4 & #16, #6 & #7 (Front and Back Trick), #8 & #14, #9 & #11 and #10 & #14.
Adam: Front & Back
Carl: #4 & #16
Adam: #9 & #14
Carl: #2 & #15- WIN!
Our last three eliminated semi-finalists will each take home the Pulse scooter.
THE FINAL LEVEL: If our last grand prize is indeed Carl, he'll be leaving with a Crosley jukebox, a Schwinn bike and tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood...

Kristin Bernard (Wichita Falls, TX)- University of Oklahoma student majoring in Psychology
Dana Wolford (Vegas)- Food server
Craig Reid (Brooklyn, NY)- A golfer that also works for a popular coffee chain; he's also created some game shows of his own, including at least one online!

Craig gobbles up $2,000 worth of FROZEN YOGURT.
After a trip to the Red Mountain Resort & Spa in Ivins, UT worth $6,668 becomes available on the wheel, the Campbell's Jackpot/Prize Puzzle Round category is Song Lyrics. He first calls five T's for $4,500 and three H's for the Wild Card, then after buying three E's, he calls a $400 N and purchases three I's. Next, he calls two S's for another $900, but he then buys a dud vowel in O to leave $5,050 on the table. Kristin follows that with two R's for $1,200, a $550 W, a $500 G and we have...
T H E / W _ I T I N G
I S / T H E
H _ R _ E S T / _ _ R T
...she solves "THE WAITING IS THE HARDEST PART" from Tom Petty's "The Waiting" for another $2,250 and a trip to the Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa in Puerto Rico worth $5,550, giving her a new total of $8,800 in cash and trip.
SOLE DUD: O (Craig)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $8,400
TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: RC0017484 (Roseanne G. from Colorado)
It's Before & After time, and Kristin begins with three T's for $900 and the purchase of the same number of E's, followed by a $400 N and an A buy. She then calls three R's for another $1,500 but then hits a Bankrupt to lose $2,300. Afterwards, Dana lights up two M's for $1,400...
_ _ _ / _
M E T / _ _ _ R
M _ T _ E R
N A T _ R E
...and she solves HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER NATURE to get on the board with that much money.
SOLE BANKRUPT: Kristin
Meineke Mystery Round category is Thing. Dana starts the round off with a $900 N and buys five E's and two A's before landing on the Mystery Wedge in between Free Play and Lose a Turn. After making an R appear, she takes a chance on it...but she Bankrupts. Secondly, Craig calls three L's for $900, five T's for another $3,500, a $900 W and buys an O, then he puts up four S's for an extra $2,400 and here's the board:
S T A _ N L E S S
S T E E L
W A T E R / _ O T T L E
He solves STAINLESS STEEL WATER BOTTLE for an additional $7,450 and the lead back with $9,450.
SOLE BANKRUPT: Dana
$3,000 Toss-Up Topic is Fictional Character:
_ _ _ / I _ V _ S I _ _ E
_ _ _
Dana is correct with THE INVISIBLE MAN to move up to $4,400.
Next category is Phrase. First, she calls a couple T's for a grand, buys an A and I, but she then spins LAT. Second, Craig calls an $800 K and purchases an E and a pair of O's to clean out the vowels before lighting up two R's for another $600, a $600 F and a Y and a W for an additional $300 apiece and we have showing...
T A K E / _ Y / W O R _
F O R / I T
...also the title of a short-lived syndicated game show hosted by Jim Lange that was the sequel to the '60s GS "Oh My Word" (which was the first GS Jim hosted), he solves "TAKE MY WORD FOR IT" to add another $2,100 to his all-cash winnings, which now stands at $11,550.
SOLE LAT: Dana
We next ask that burning question What Are You Doing? Unfortunately, Craig Bankrupts on the spot in this round to lose the WC. After Kristin calls an $800 N and a $300 G, we go to Speed-Up Mode...
_ _ _ _ _ N G / _
_ _ _ _ _ _
...and the rest of the consonants are all valued at $6,000 each! After Kristin calls the W...
W R _ T _ N G / _
_ _ T T _ R
...a while after his appearance on this show, he'll be WRITING A LETTER to the staff about what he's done with his winnings, which are boosted to $17,550! Kristen missed out on $19,100 after she blanked out following her call of a trio of T's, but she still leaves with $8,800 in cash and Puerto Rico; Dana couldn't win her $12,000 bank after lighting up the double T's and will have to settle for $4,400.
To wrap up the week, $30,750 in cash and trip has been given away.
SOLE BANKRUPT: Craig
TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding the WC): $3,700
Maxwell House Big Money Round: Let's see how this game show creator does in Bonusland. Craig Reid spins the S in AMERICA'S and the category is Thing. Starting with:
_ _ R _ _ E N _ _
CDMA gives him...
_ _ R _ _ E N C _
...he's incorrect thinking this bonus puzzle ends with an Y like I thought it would- it was WORKBENCH and he loses $50,000. He leaves with $17,550; I hope he doesn't blow it all on his GS creations.
Jeopardy!: As luck would have it, Morgan Saxby, who won $32,401 last night, is a research associate from Charlottesville, VA! Let's see if he can repeat as champion tonight against:
Jack Aponte (Brooklyn, NY)- Non-profit technology consultant
Sarah Samudi (Chicago)- Director of Apollo Theaters at a community center
Friday's first six categories:
A SEAFOOD GUIDE
BIBLICAL BAD STUFF
ITS A "BUST"!
The second played category of The 1920s concludes with Saxby finding the Daily Double. He's quickly in Lock Game Territory with $2,800, while Aponte has a grand and Samundi's $600 in the hole. He's going for a True Daily Double, folks! For $5,600 or nothing, here's the clue:
The USA's first woman governor, Nellie Tayloe Ross, governed this "Equality State" from 1925-1927.
"What is Wyoming?"...the DOUBLER is his! At the first set of commercials, he's up to $6,600; Aponte's at $1,400 and Samundi's back at zero.
ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,600
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $1,800
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $4,400
SCORES AFTER FIRST ROUND:
"C" IN SCIENCE
COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES
LOOK OUT BELOW!
Saxby's really running away with this match, because by the time he finds DD #1 under the final "C" in Science clue, he's got $14,200, whereas Aponte has nothing and Samudi's back in the red to the tune of $400! He bets double the face value of this clue ($4,000), which is being read by Sarah Whitcomb from the show's laboratory:
The two streams form one as water molecules are so attracted to each other that when they come near, they stick together- a uniting action know as this.
"What is conjuction?"...NOT it. We actually know it as cohesion, sending him back to $10,200. He completes the DD Sweep with the $1,600 Winning Word and has $19,400, which is a monster $17K lead over Samudi; Aponte's now $400 in Deep Doo-Doo Debt. This time, he bets two grand on the following:
It means to win; when it precedes "upon", it means to persuade.
"What is put?"...wrong. The right word was prevail, so he falls to $17,400.
ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,800
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $5,200
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $8,000
SCORES AFTER DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:
Morgan: $22,200 (lock game!)
FJ! CATEGORY: 19th Century British Literature.

Response: "Who is Oliver Twist?"
Final score: $4,799 (she leaves with $2K)

Retains title with: $8K
Mr. Saxby's two-day total: $40,401.
