5/11/2010 Results

LMAD: First up is the Gift Card Deal, and we start it off with Katherine from Redondo Beach, CA (who is dressed as a package of baby spinach). The first number on the card is 3, and she gives the gift card to Christine (dressed as a can of Brady Noodle Soup with a chicken hat on her head) for what’s behind Curtain #1...but she gets beaten up by a ZONK rock band. After the second number on the card proves to be 2, she passes it to Luis (a Navy member who’s dressed as a person on “Star Trek”) in order to get what’s behind Curtain #2...a suite of countertop appliances and a year’s worth of Seattle’s Best Coffee, all worth $2,690. The third (and possibly last) digit on that card is 5, and he keeps it…but $325 is its final value. That will cost him…a Honda CRF 230C motorcycle worth $4,999. But he’s then asked this $100 question by Jonathan Mangum- how did Captain Kirk pass the Not Possible to Pass Test during the Academy days? Luis is correct with cheating to finish with $425.

The fourth contestant this morning is Reginald from Columbus, GA (who’s wearing some sunglasses and a purple hat). He’s told to give his driver’s license to Wayne Brady for several seconds before being given $900 for it. Secondly, Kimberly (dressed as an electrical plug) and Jaime (dressed as a construction worker) get a chance to guess Reginald’s age. The woman who’s closer will get $900 and the chance to continue with Reginald; the other one will be eliminated with $100.

Kimberly: 43
Jaime: 45
REGINALD’S AGE: 42- KIMBERLY ADVANCES


After that, Kimberly doesn’t buy what’s behind Curtain #1 for the money she has right now…it was a Bosch washer/dryer package worth $3,584. Reginald’s wife Kimberly (dressed as a black/gold joker) then tells him to buy the blue small box (Jonathan)…and there may be a divorce coming the near future, because he’s ELIMINATED with
a box of hair loss pills.

Demetry Estross (dressed as an angel) is shown a clue for what’s behind Curtain #2- BA_________. She gets her choice of either that or what’s in the bronze envelope. Her pick is the envelope…there was a BATHTUB behind the middle curtain, but of the ZONK variety! And she instead wins…a $2,000 newegg.com gift card. This deal will be continued.

Coming out of her hive to make a deal next is Charity (dressed as a bumblebee, of course), and she’s getting the Curtain Chip Grab Bag. But first, here are her curtain clues:

Curtain #1: NORTH
Curtain #2: SOUTH
Curtain #3: WEST


She adds two #2 chips and one #3 chip. When she pulls out a chip…she picks out the only one for #1. When it comes to the middle curtain, she definitely misses out on a trip to the Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel & Casino worth $4,250. At this stage of the deal, Mr. Brady tells her one of the remaining two curtains has a ZONK behind it. She’s offered $500, $600 and $700 before selling her curtain for $900. And that means she won’t be going…to a ZONK igloo! But the trip back at #3 she also loses out on was to a Doubletree resort in Santa Barbara, CA worth $6,055. After seeing all of that, she’s given an extra Benjamin.

Time now for Christopher & Kasey (dressed as Spartans) to climb up the Staircase to Money.

ROUND 1:
Kasey: #2- BUCK
Christopher: #2- BUCK

ROUND 2:
Christopher: #9- ZONK

Kasey: #3 (after turning down $500)- LOSS

Since they lost so quickly, they each get to pick one more pig and will receive $100 for every buck they find.

FINAL ROUND:
Kasey: #1- $2
Christopher: #10- $2; WINS $400


Back to the Incomplete Word Deal with Lavon (dressed as a clown). The name of the prize behind Curtain #3 also begins with the letters B & A. After she rejects $400, $500, $600, she sells the curtain back for $800...and this time, a REAL BARBEQUE package valued at $3,327 gets passed up. That means Christine will move on to play for the Big Deal of the Day.

THE BIG DEAL: Tuesday’s Big Deal contains a car/trip package that totals $25,341, and Christine thinks it’s behind Door #3...IT IS! She’s won a trip to the White Elephant Hotel & Resonances in Nantucket Island, MA and the Ford Focus- she salvaged today’s episode, that’s for sure!

Door #1: Living room, including the Samsung 55” LED HDTV ($8,234)
Door #2: Home gym, including the Sony 40” LCD HDTV ($3,100)


TPIR: Let’s begin with Rebecca Frendian, birthday boy Terry Dupris, Michael Davis, Jr. and Cecilia Nava. The first IUFB is a pair of Nook digital readers (Rachel).

Rebecca: $1,250
Terry: $650
Michael: $1,300
Cecilia: $1,301

All are over.


Rebecca: $600
Terry: $200 (STAGE GARF)

Michael: $300
Cecilia: $650 (ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK NOMINEE)

ARP: $518


DQ: Cecilia's failure to bid less than $650 after the first all-overbid

Michael from upstate New York plays the Range Game for a trip to the Sandals Grand St. Lucian Spa & Beach Resort (Manuela at Door #4). His range is $7,000-$7,600…but he stops it WAY TOO EARLY AT $7,148-$7,298. ARP: $7,396.

The fifth player is Theresa Kuzina and the second IUFB on the train (conducted by Rachel) is a red carolinachair.com sofa (Amber).

Theresa: $650

Cecilia: $1,100
Rebecca: $700
Terry: $701

ARP: $1,760

Cecilia plays ½ Off, with the SPs being modeled by Rachel & Manuela.


1.
GPS: $45
Steamer: $15
PICK: GPS- $90 ($500)
BOXES REMAINING: #2, #3, #5, #6, #8, #9, #12 & #14


2.
Waterproof sound case: $50
Cologne: $68

PICK: Case- $100 ($1,000)
BOXES REMAINING: #2, #3, #5 &
#6

3.
Wine bottle opener: $19
Potato ricer: $16
PICK: Opener- INCORRECT

She picks Box #5, brought down by Rachel...the $10,000 was in one of the two remaining green boxes, but she picked the WRONG one.


Sixth is Stephen Cleare and the third IUFB is a PeakPilates pilates machine (Manuela behind GPT).

Stephen: $399
Rebecca: $635
Terry: $995
Theresa: $550

ARP: $2,695

Terry, who’s now 39 years old, plays the Money Game for the Chevrolet Camaro (Std., AT, Prot, Tire/Wheel)(Amber at Door #3). Board:

(95)(25)(68)
(30)(26)(49)
(85)(24)(74)


MIDDLE NUMBER: 2 ($ _ _ , 2 _ _)

He begins with $26 just before finding the front half at 25…and that Camaro will NOT be amongst one of his major birthday presents, because neither of his subsequent picks of 95, 49 or 85 contain the back, so his birthday cash total here is $255. Because the ARP was $25,268, he just became a Front & Back Trick victim.

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Michael ($518): 20 + Nickel = Quarter
Terry ($2,950): Nickel + 80 = $.85
Cecilia ($3,033): Quarter + 65 = WINS WITH $.90


Seventh is Allison Hayward and IUFB #4 is a selection of Coach accessories (Rachel inside the clam).

Allison: $1,600

Theresa: $1,100
Stephen: $1,250
Rebecca: BUCK

ARP: $768

Rebecca completes the First Four Sweep in order to play Now or Then (instead of Pl!nko on her blue T-shirt) for a Ligna bedroom that includes a Sanyo 32” LCD HDTV worth $6,977 (Amber at Door #2). Then is February 2000, and the six groceries on the pie grid are the Jumbo Space Bag marked at $10.99, a box of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes marked at $3.25, the $2.39 Wheat Nuts, the $11.99 Chlor-Trimeton Allergy medication, Cortizone-10 marked at $5.49 and KC Masterpiece Original BBQ Sauce marked at $1.99. She starts with the Corn Flakes and says that’s one of the two Then items…but it’s not. Secondly, she’s right by going with Now on the Space Bag. Third, she tries Then again, but this time on the sauce…right. It all comes down to the cream. I hope she locks in Now for that…and she does to become the first winner of the day! Obviously, the other Then item was the Wheat Nuts.

Coming on down after her is Marine girl Rosemary Dulkowski and the next IUFB is a Fagor stainless-steel dishwasher (Amber & Manuela).

Rosemary: $999
Allison: $702
Theresa: $703
Stephen: $625

ARP: $890

Theresa plays Line ‘Em Up for the Hyundai Genesis (Std., Mats, Net)(Manuela at Door #2); the other three prizes are in an outdoors background. Board:

2
?- $723, dinette (Rachel)
?- $48, pitcher
?- $349, lawn mower (Amber)
5

Her first guess is $23,895…two of the important middle numbers are right. I’m fearing she’ll change the car price to $27,895…but she locks in $22,895 and wins all four prizes!


We last call on another military lady, Rose Leva from the Army and the final IUFB of the day is a Howard Miller Total Home wine cabinet (Rachel behind splitting sign).

Rose: $950
Stephen: $1,100
Rosemary: $1,150
Allison: $1,151

ARP: $1,419


Allison, who’s also celebrating a birthday and whose first name is also the middle one of Drew Carey, plays Double Prices for a Sea-Doo GTI130 jet ski (Manuela at Door #2). Her choices are $8,889 and $9,489, and she goes with $9,489…NO perfect second half today.

My lineup today:

1. Range Game
2. ½ Off
3. Money Game
4. Double Prices
5. Now or Then
6. Line ‘Em Up


SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Allison ($1,419): 30 + Half-Dollar = $.80
Rebecca ($7,745): Two 45s = $.90
Theresa ($24,905): 30 + 85 = OVER BY $.15; REBECCA GETS TOP WINNER’S SHOWCASE PODIUM


The first Showcase has the Bull BBQ (Rachel), a camping tent trailer (Rachel at Door #2) and a pair of Yamaha YFZ450R ATVs (Amber at Door #3).

But first, here's the $1,000 Toss-Up in the category of Things:

_ T U F _ E D

A _ I _ _ L S

Trey knows that you can win STUFFED ANIMALS at some State Fair games for $1,000.

$25,000 SPIN ID #1: SK0012494

Now, here are Tuesday night's contestants:

Trey Stafford (North Hollywood, CA; originally from New Orleans)- A production coordinator who also has a purple belt in Kimbo
Kathy Steele (Aventura, FL)- An operations/finance manager for an export company, as well as a Florida State University alumni
Hazley Hamm (Colorado Springs)- Special Education teacher

The $2,000 Toss-Up's looking for a pair of Fictional Characters:

_ _ _ _ _ _ / &

_ _ I _ _ / O _ L

Trey quickly nails POPEYE & OLIVE OYL for another two grand.

Eggland's Best Jackpot Round category is Fun & Games and out on the wheel now is a trip to the State Fair of Texas from BestofTexas.com worth $7,900. He gets us going with two N's for $900 and an $800 G, then he buys three I's and purchases the same number of A's for free while on Free Play before Bankrupting in between $600 and $900 to lose $1,450. Secondly, Kathy calls a dud in S while on the Wild Card. Third, Hazley calls another dud in T. Back to Trey just like that, he calls three L's for the WC but then another dud of V. Kathy next calls a $400 R, a $300 M, a $600 B and two C's for another $1,600, then we have...

R I _ I N G / A

M _ C _ A N I C A L

B _ L L

...and she solves RIDING A MECHANICAL BULL for $2,900, leaving her $100 out of the lead for the time being.

DUDS: S (Kathy), $500 T (Hazley), $400 V (Trey)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Trey
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $9,650

Tonight's Prize Puzzle Round is about some Song Lyrics. Kathy begins this round with an immediate dud of S. Second, Hazley calls two T's for $1,200 and buys four O's, then she calls an R for the trip and purchases six E's before calling a $3,500 H. She then buys an I, but she then purchases the only dud vowel on the board (I) to leave $11,600 in cash and trip on the table. After that, Trey calls a $350 W, a $700 L and calls two B's for another $600, followed by his purchase of the last remaining vowel of U. He next lights up a $3,500 Y and then hands in the WC to call a D for a doubler. After he puts up two C's to add $600, here's the board...

_ E T / B A C _

T O / W H E R E / Y O U

O _ C E / B E L O _ _ E D

...from The Beatles' "Get Back", he solves "GET BACK TO WHERE YOU ONCE BELONGED" to quadruple his three grand in Toss-Up money plus win a trip to the Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort in Aruba worth $6,424, bringing his new total to $18,424 in cash and trip!

DUDS: I (Hazley), $550 S (Kathy)

TRIP SPIN ID: DP7531891 (Dora P. from Colorado)

$25,000 SPIN ID #2: GR04405

IHOP Mystery Round category is Before & After and it's a big puzzle. Hazley leads off with two N's for a $1,000 Candy's Apples.com gift package and a $600 T, then she buys three O's, calls five S's for another $2,250 and a $500 S and purchases five E's. Next, she calls a couple of L's for another $1,800, buys an A and a trio of I's to clean out the vowels but she then hits the same Bankrupt Trey hit earlier to lose $5,150 in cash and stuff. Following that, Trey lights up a set of M's for $900, a $300 D and a $900 W before we see all of this...

S O M E D A _ / M _

_ R I N _ E / W I L L

_ O M E / T O

_ I S / S E N S E S

...he gets SOMEDAY MY PRINCE WILL COME TO HIS SENSES for an additional $2,300 and $20,724 total.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Hazley

Event is the topic of the $3,000 Toss-Up:

_ _ _ _ I

C _ _ _ - _ _ F

Kathy solves CHILI COOK-OFF quickly to move up to $5,900.

Speed-Up Round category is Place and consonants are worth...$1,500 a pop. After Hazley calls a pair of C's...

G R _ N D S _ _ N D

S _ _ _ _ N G

...she averts the gooseegg threat with GRANDSTAND SEATING for six grand! Kathy leaves with a Benjamin less than that and Trey's the champion with $20,724 in cash and Aruba!

Thus far, $32,624 in cash and vacation has been awarded tonight.

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH: $6,600 in cash and gift tag

Maxwell House Big Money Round: Trey Stafford spins the triple star and the category is Phrase. Starting with:

_ N _ _ _

_ N / _ _ _ _

He calls C, P, B and I and gets...

_ N _ C _

_ N / _ _ _ _

...if he had thought of Amii Stewart or called the O as his vowel, he might've solved "KNOCK ON WOOD" to have become the second straight $30,000 winner. He leaves with $20,724 in cash and trip.

Jeopardy!: The second trio of Tournament of Champions contestants are Nick Yozamp (who is this season's College Champion), Stephen Weingarten (four-time champion) & Terry Linwood (five-time champion).

Tuesday's first six categories:

WHO'S YOUR DADDY COMPANY? (at least one product is listed on each clue)
DO PROCESS
PAINTINGS
THE "ODD" SQUAD
CHIEF JUSTICES
A PRO BONO CATEGORY


Linwood finds the Daily Double under the middle clue on Chief Justices. He has the early lead with $3,200, while Weingarten has $600 and Yozamp stands at $400. Believe it or not, Linwood's going for a True Daily Double! Here's the clue that could boost his score to $6,400:

This chief led a commission before which 552 witnesses testified.

"Who is Earl Warren?"...DOUBLE to $6,400! At the first break, that's where he is right now; Yozamp's in second with $2,200.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $1,000
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,600
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $3,600

SCORES AFTER FIRST ROUND:

Terry: $8,000
Stephen: $600
Nick: $6,000

DJ! Subjects:

FLOWERY PROSE
HITCHCOCK MOVIE QUOTES
SOMETIMES A GREAT OCEAN

WHO DIED & MADE YOU KING?
"The New York Times: Home & Garden"
"WA"?

The first of the two DDs closes out Hitchcock Movie Quotes, and it belongs to Linwood with $14,800. He's just $400 behind Yozamp for first place, while Weingarten's down to $200 after once being that much in the hole. His wager this time is $4,200 on this clue:

"Everyone has somebody they want to put out of the way"

"What is 'Strangers on the Train'?"...is the RIGHT film to re-gain the lead with 19 big ones! Towards the end of this round, Weingarten finds the last one of the evening with the $1,600 Flowery Prose clue and $8,200; that's half of Yozamp's current total, while Linwood now has $20,200. He's making it a TDD, folks! The clue that will likely seal his fate is this one:

This medieval whodunit centers on Brother William of Baskerville, sent to investigate murder in a monastery.

"What is 'The Name of the Rose'?"...HE GOT IT TO JUMP TO A SECOND-PLACE TIE AT $16,400 EACH! Linwood then closes out an exciting DJ! round with a correct response on the $2,000 clue.

DJ! LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $3,200

SCORES AFTER DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:

Terry: $22,200
Stephen & Nick: $16,400 apiece

CORYAT SCORES:

Terry: $17,400
Stephen: $9,800
Nick: $16,400

FJ! CATEGORY: Words in The Bible (this is a chance for Mr. Yozamp to redeem himself from his incorrect response on the FJ! clue about Biblical Kings from Day 2 of the College Championship Finals; his church criticized him for doing so, even though he still won).

In Genesis 2:24, these two words are what a man shall do to his parents and then to his wife; add a letter to one to get the other.

Since he's the second-place player further to the right, we'll start with Nick Yozamp, whether he likes it or not. His response was "What are honor & ...?", which is definitely going to disappoint his church's friends again, unless he ultimately goes on to win the $250,000 in this tournament. For now, his partial blanking here will cost him...NOTHING! Stephen Weingarten is way off the mark with "What is love and lover"...AND HE LOSES EVERYTHING BUT FIFTY BUCKS. Terry Linwood is also NOT EVEN CLOSE with "What is be good?"; the correct two words were leave & cleave. As a result, he loses...only $250, making him an automatic semi-finalist! Yozamp has a very good chance of being a Wild Card. But Weingarten & Ryan Chaffee will both be leaving us with $5K apiece.

Cecilia bid $650 after being told to go lower than $650...Zonk?
