5/17/2010 Results

LMAD: The week begins with Lewis (dressed as a yellow Crayola crayon) singing a small duet with Wayne Brady before being given the first choice of either the four items inside the blue small box (Jonathan Mangum) or the three items behind Curtain #3 (Tiffany Coyne). He goes with the curtain furthest to the right, meaning he passes the box to Sarah (dressed as a flower)...and he wins one of the stainless-steel appliance trios from AjMadison worth $5,367! Secondly, Sarah gives Curtain #2 to Christina (who's wearing some hair rollers) in order to keep what's in the box...but she's ELIMINATED with a sandy sandwich quartet. Finally, she rejects the sole prize behind Curtain #1...but it was a KIA Soul (Std., Mats, Locks, App.) worth $16,080. After turning down $500 and $700, she ends up with...a pair of Polaris ATVs worth $6,398!

Now, the Marines couple of Antoni & Marie try to climb the Starcase to Money.

ROUND 1:
Marie: #8- ZONK
Antoni (after turning down $500): #2- WIPEOUT!!!

CONSOLATION PRIZE PICK FROM ANTONI: #1- $1; WINS $100

Video Bonus: WORST STAIRCASE TO MONEY PLAYING EVER

(Note: As of this episode, some new sound effects make their debut; also, some of the other ones have been remixed.)

Let's see if we can rebound from that HORRIBLE deal with Donna (who's wearing a very bright green wig), who begins the Jonathan's Sketch Deal. The sketching prize is behind Curtain #3 (and Wayne gives Jonathan the answer with the silver envelope), but she instead goes with the curtain at the opposite end of the spectrum...at the very least, she passes up a home office package that included an Asus computer system worth $3,143. She also gives back $500...but as of right now, that KIA from earlier is hers! A second round of this deal will commence later.

The next two traders are Jose (who's wearing some space pajamas and is holding a Koala teddy bear) and Nicole; whoever makes the better opening deal of the two of them will get to continue on in this round of play. We start off with two bankrolls- one has a $10 bill on the outside, while the other begins with a $50.

BANKROLL CHOICES:
Jose: $10
Nicole: $50

Afterwards, Jose buys the big box...inside his bankroll were 16 $50 bills, so he gave up a total of $810 for a trip to The Hotel @ Times Square in New York City worth $5,242! Nicole next elects to keep her bankroll, meaning she's definitely OUT with...an additional $900 (nine Benjamins), so she leaves us with $950. If she had gone with the box, she would have won a vacation at the Grand Hyatt Hawaii Restaurant & Spa in Kauai worth $7,649 and would've continued on in the deal instead of Jose. Finally, we can reveal that The Big Risk is attached to Curtain #2, but Jose wisely waves it off...because there was a giant fake cream pie back there! Also, he would've gotten hit in the face with a real cream pie, but Jonathan instead gets hit by it!

Video Bonus #2: Jonathan gets creamed

It's time for the $20,000 Die Deal with Lorraine (who's holding a fairly small football; the past few times, this deal was played for a car). For each number she successfully rolls, I will light up a letter in the word TWENTY.

1. #5 (----T-)- $500
2. #3 (--E-T-)- $900 ($1,400); QUITS THIS DEAL FOR GOOD

If she had purchased Curtain #3...she would've ran into a giant inflatable rubber duckie!

Let's return to the Jonathan's Sketch Deal. Mary (dressed as a flight stewardness) is told that what Jonathan draws now has to do with Curtain #2 (Jonathan is given the clue with the bronze envelope this time). She thinks a bedroom's behind the middle curtain, but she instead settles for $600...well, she was incorrect, but there was a living room that included the Sony 40" LCD HDTV and a Blu-Ray Disc Player, all worth $4,434. After that, everybody in this morning's studio audience (including Mary) will receive a copy of "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel"!

THE BIG DEAL: Christina trades in her ATVs for a chance to win The Big Deal of the Day, which has a total value of $22,420. She chooses Door #3. The middle door contained a BMW G650 GS motorcycle valued at $8,340. Behind Door #1 was...the Bank Vault with $1,885 inside! And that means she's won...a Jeep Patriot Sport FWD (Std., Paint, CVT, #26E) and a $500 gas card! Besides the movies, a grand total of $52,159 in cash and prizes was given away today!

At the end of the last-taped episode for this season, while he's trying to make some Quickie Deals, Jonathan gets his revenge on Wayne by hitting him with a pie! This is followed by a PIE FIGHT BEHIND DOOR #2 INVOLVING THE REST OF THE STAFF!!!

Video Bonus #3: End-of-show pie fight!

FJ! CATEGORY: 20th Century Thinkers.

Refusing to imprison this man for demonstrating during the 1960s, De Gaulle said, "One does not arrest Voltaire".

Commander Belote's response was "Who was (John Paul) Sartre?"...RIGHT! He should've wagered it all or close to that...BUT HE ONLY WAGERED $213, so he's all but out of it with $8,013. Stefan Goodreau...is wrong with "Who is (Albert) Camus?". His suggested wager was $4,001...AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HE RISKED, so he's still in it with $9,199 and Belote will be heading home with another $10K in his pockets. Terry Linwood did make the suggested bet of $9,201...

















































...
BUT ALL HE WROTE DOWN IS NOTHING BUT UNREADABLE CRAP, SO AN ADDITIONAL $10K WILL BE COMING HIS WAY. THAT MEANS GOODREAU'S GOING TO THE FINALS!
