Joseph: $700
Sheila: $1,001
Stacey: $1,200
Erica: $1,201


ARP: $1,160

Stacey was over by $40 and Erica by $41, so Sheila will play Money Game for the Ford Focus SE (Std., AT, Lighting)(Amber at Door #2). Board:

(50)(98)(21)
(89)(64)(20)
(05)(19)(75)

MIDDLE NUMBER: 0 ($ _ _ , 0 _ _)

El Cheapo's out there today, but Stacey starts her bank here with $20 before she finds the front of the Focus at 19. Her later picks are 75, 64...AND EL CHEAPO TO SHOOT DOWN BOTH THAT AND THE FRONT AND BACK TRICK!!! She wins the $19,005 car and $159 in gas money!

(Note: Drew Carey had a little trouble getting the middle number section out of the board, resulting in the Mighty Sound Effects Lady dinging him not once or twice, but three times!)

Coming on down sixth is Rashanda Dickson and the third IUFB is an outdoor furniture set (Lanisha at Door #3).

Rashanda: $1,500
Stacey: $1,600
Erica: $1,100
Joseph: $1,101

ARP: $1,945

Stacey plays Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze Play for one of those non-Bull outdoor kitchen islands (Manuela at Door #2). Board:

93589

She needs to remove the eight...but thanks to her family, she removes the three instead.

(Note: Drew nearly removed the first nine, which would've resulted in a technical win!)

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Stacey ($1,945): $.85
Kenneth ($3,268): WINS ANOTHER $1,000!
Sheila ($20,324): Two 35s

Kenneth's Bonus Spin is worth...$.85.

Seventh is Rex Bax (a University of Florida fan who's wearing a University of Alabama shirt) and IUFB #4 is the two Diamondback bikes (Manuela in front of Contestant's Row).

Rex: $700
Erica: $850
Joseph: $799
Rashanda: BUCK

ARP: $720

Rex plays Bullseye for an Ashley Queen bedroom group worth $6,953 (Lanisha at Door #3). Today's grocery items are Francesco Rinaldi Pasta Sauce, a big bag of Smarties, Clorox2, Aquafresh Iso-Active Toothpaste and Cool Whip.

(Note: A new product wipe for this Pricing Game has been introduced today!)

1. 4 Toothpastes: $3.99 X 4 = $15.96
2. 3 Sauces: $1.99 X 3 = $5.97
FINAL PURCHASE: 3 Smarties Bags- $1.69 X 3 = $5.07

If the Hidden Bullseye's attached to the toothpaste, he loses...no. If it's with the sauce, he wins...no. That means it has to be under the candy or else...and it is!

The red spot next belongs to Jacqueline Getty and the fifth IUFB is the Lenovo Thinkpad (Lanisha).

Jacqueline: $680
Erica: $1,100
Joseph: $450
Rashanda: $1,200

ARP: $1,275

Rashanda's the second straight contestant to play Lucky $even for the Jeep Wrangler (Std., AC, Prot)(All). Unfortunately for her, it's the $23,391 one...BUT WHAT DO YOU KNOW, AFTER HER FIRST PICKS OF 4 & 5, SHE GETS THE LAST TWO NUMBERS EXACTLY RIGHT TO WIN IT PLUS $3 IN GAS MONEY- UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!!!! If I were the host of this show, I would've acted like Pat Sajak when somebody named Joseph got the bonus puzzle of GOPHER on a February 2001 College Week episode of "Wheel of Fortune" from Washington D.C. with no additional help!!! That might very well be the GRECO-STOPPER OF THE SEASON RIGHT THERE!!!!!

(Note: I saw quite a few members of the Peanut Gallery also thinking that last digit was one- wow!!!)

Video Bonus: Today's REALLY EXCITING car games!

It's going to be extremely tough to follow that, but here comes Heather Gropin and the last IUFB is a Board Towelz package (Amber behind the Giant Price Tag). Erica's been here the whole show and will bid third in this final round.

Heather: $550
Jacqueline: $600
Erica: $650
Joseph: $500

ARP: $558

TODAY'S FIRST FOUR BREAKFAST CLUB MEMBER: Erica

Heather plays Two for the Price of One for three pairs of Dan Deutsch Optical Outlook sunglasses (Lanisha) and a trip to the Embassy Suites Lake Tahoe Hotel & Ski Resort (Amber). Board for the sunglasses:

First number: 4 or 9?
Second number: 5 or 7?
Third number: 0 or 3?

She chooses the middle digit as her freebie, and it's a five. She locks in $450...

$ 4 5 0

...and we have a perfect second half!

My lineup today:

1. Bullseye
2. Pl!nko
3. Lucky $even
4. 2 For the Price of 1
5. Squeeze Play
6. Money Game

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2 (winner gets Top Winner's Showcase podium; Ken, you'd better hope Rashanda doesn't get it):
Heather (second spin was a PENALTY): 40 + 70 = OVER BY A DIME
Rex: Nickel + 15 = Two Dimes
Rashanda: WINS WITH THREE QUARTERS!


The first Showcase (all modeled by Manuela) has a skiing package (in front of Door #1 to the left), a ski trip to that Millennium Hotel in Anchorage (in front of Door #1 to the right; includes three hours of private skiing lessons and a dogsled ride) and a pair of Ski-Doo snowmobiles (behind Door #1).

RASHANDA PASSES TO KENNETH; KENNETH BIDS $18.5K ON TRIP/SNOWMOBILES SHOWCASE

MY BID FOR TRIP/SNOWMOBILES SHOWCASE: $22,389

Rashanda's Showcase starts off with a vacation at the Superclubs Breeezes Resort Spa & Casino Curacao (Amber at Door #4; includes some time playing with the dolphins and $2,000 in AAA gift cards). But if she wants to bring some of the Caribbean fun with her back home, here's an Liquid Shredder Soft Surfboards/Ocean Kayak (Lanisha at Door #3) and a Kawsaki STX 15F jet ski (Manuela at Door #2; if she wins this Showcase, her Jeep will presumably be parked behind this door).

RASHANDA BIDS 28 GRAND ON TRIP/JET SKI SHOWCASE- POSSIBLE STAGE WILLY

MY BID FOR TRIP/JET SKI SHOWCASE: $19,686

RASHANDA'S SHOWCASE:
BID: $28,000

OVER

KEN'S SHOWCASE:
BID: $18,500
ARP: $19,135- WIN

Ken wins $23,403 in cash and prizes. But Rashanda deservingly still leaves as the day's top winner with $24,669 in cash and stuff.

Jeopardy!: Marty Scott could rise to the top of the new Tournament of Champions Leaderboard if he wins tonight's game against:

Anne Triolo (Bellefonte, PA)- Screenwriter/bookstore manager
Jonah Busch (originally from West Lafayette, LA)- Environmental economist

Tuesday's first six topics:

AESOP'S FABLES
SPORTS STARS' MEMOIRS & BIOS

THE FOOD CHAIN (each clue is a three-word Missing Link chain)
FOREIGN MAYORS
HERE'S A "QUARTER"
CALL SOMEONE WHO CARES

Just before the first commercial break, Triolo hits the Daily Double under the $800 clue on Aesop's Fables with $3,000; she's $600 ahead of Scott for the lead, while Busch's $400 in the hole. She makes it a True DD, so for $6,000 or nothing, here is the clue:

The moral of the story of these two insects is "It is best to prepare for the days of necessity".

"Who are 'The Ant & The Grasshopper'?"...DOUBLE TO SIX GRAND! As the first half of the round wraps up, Scott takes the last clue in the same category; at the end of this round, Triolo's still leading with $9,600. Scott's a pretty close second with $6,800 and Busch's a distant third with $1,600, but at least he's in the money now.

PERFECT ROUND!

DJ! Subjects:

A "LITTLE" READING
WHAT'S ON YOUR iPOD? (all video clues read by celebrites from the contestant pdoiums; this is also the name of a recurring bit on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon"; a similar segment is also done sometimes on "The Late Show With David Letterman")
YOU GOTTA REPRESENT
THE CURRENT SUPREME COURT JUSTICE WHO...
HORSE SMARTS
WORD PUZZLES

Triolo gets the first three "Little" clues before finding DD #1 under its $1,600 clue and wagering four grand this time. The answer this time is:

The title of this Inge drama refers to the dog that Lola Delaney lost & pines for.

"What is 'Come Back, Little Sheba'?"...IS RIGHT TO JUMP INTO LOCK GAME TERRITORY WITH $16K! To sweep the category:

This 1939 play by Lillian Hellman tells the story of the ruthless Hubbard family.

Marty: "What is 'The Little Foxes'?"- CORRECT ($8,800)

Shortly after that, Busch closes out the DDs with the one at the middle spot in the Supreme Court Justice category. He has $4,400, which is half of Scott's new second-place total; that means Triolo's NOT in LGT now. Anyway, he goes for the TDD with this:

...is the youngest.

"Who is John Roberts?"...currently 55 years old and has a birthday that takes place a day after mine, Roberts is RIGHT FOR THE $8,800 DOUBLER AND A SECOND-PLACE TIE!

Just before we reach Final Jeopardy!, Scott uses the High School Strategy on the last three Horse Smarts clues.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $3,600
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $7,600
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $11,200

SCORES AFTER DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:

Marty: $13,600
Jonah: $10,800
Anne: $18,800

CORYAT SCORES:

Marty: $13,600
Jonah: $7,600
Anne: $14,200


The 2/3 betting situation and Stratton's Dilemma are now in play.

FJ! CATEGORY: The 50 States.

It's the only two-word state name in which neither word appears in the name of any other state.

Jonah Busch's response was the right one, "What is Rhode Island?"! His suggested wager was only $400...but he risked a C-note more than that, so he finishes with $12,200. Marty Scott...is also right! While in SD, he could only think about betting either something less than $3,200 or more than eight large...and he played it safe with a $2,400 bet, making his final bankroll for the night $16K. I can tell you right now no matter what happens here, Buddy Wright still has the top spot with his four wins and $88,804...and Anne Triolo wins the championship with $27,800 (although she wagered $599 more than she should have)! Scott leaves us, at least for now, with $66,001.
