TPIR: As promised, Lonestar is here the whole time on Episode 5214K, playing some musical cues at times as the morning's house band behind Door #3! After we hear Rich Fields announce our First Four (while Lonestar's playing the show's theme!), Kendall Evans, Shantra Dickerson, David Moudy & Katelyn Skorka, the first IUFB is the two Fender guitar's they're holding onto right now (and they're playing the cue for it; they'll also play us out after each commercial break).
Once he gets up to the home base area, David picks Drew Carey up! And Drew will have to run for cover if David wins this Scion tC (Std., AT, Bluetooth, Net)(Manuela at Door #2) in Cover Up. Board:
First number: 1 or 3?
Second number: 1, 3 or 8?
Third number: 0, 1, 8 or 9?
Fourth number: 1, 3, 4, 5 or 7?
Last number: 2, 4, 5, 7, 8 or 9?
OPENING DUD PRICE: $20,580
His first guess is $18,975...the first three numbers are right. He secondly locks in $18,959...AND MAXES OUT. ARP: $18,918. I probably wouldn't have won this car, either.
Fifth is Julia Beardsley and the second IUFB is a pair of Tissot watches that Amber's holding.
Chauntra plays One Right Price for the Crosley jukebox package that includes a $500 iTunes gift card and the 160 GB iPod Classic (Lanisha) and one of the Mizerak pool tables (Manuela). Amber's holding the ORP of $2,245, and Chauntra agrees with me on the musical stuff...and it is! The table was only $1,250.
Coming on down as the sixth contestant is Debbie Anthony and IUFB #3 is a selection of the Zojirushi appliances (Manuela behind the GPT).
Julia from Port Hueneme, CA plays Pushover for an Ashley living room group w/ a 52" Pantel Outdoor Waterproof HDTV (Lanisha at Door #2). Board:
She pushes to $5,799, which doesn't sound right to me at all...but it is indeed!
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
David ($2,700): $.95
Chauntra ($4,445): 55 + 20 = Three Quarters
Julia ($6,649): WINS $1,000 AND SHOWCASE BERTH!
Does Julia hit paydirt with her Bonus Spin just like Bradley Sarian did yesterday...YES WITH THE $10,000 NICKEL!
Afterwards, Ryan Mazuca heads on down to the blue podium and the fourth IUFB is a selection of designer accessories (Amber behind rising sign).
Katelyn takes advantage of Ryan's $50 overbid to play Range Game for a trip to Orlando (Manuela at Door #4). The range is $4,900-$5,600, and she freezes up the board at $5,133-$5,283...but the trip's $5,337.
Going red second is Ronald Inglehart and the next-to-last IUFB is twin Randy Ross Stepper Bicycles (Amber & Manuela).
Debbie: $3,400 (STAGE WILLY)
Kendall, the last of the First Four to make it out of Contestant's Row, plays Pass the Buck for the Chevrolet Aveo5 (Lanisha).
Quaker Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal: $3.49
Ragu Pizza Sauce: $1.89
PICK: Sauce- INCORRECT
Gold Bond Ultimate Lotion (tube): $6.18
Space Bag: $6.99
PICK: Lotion- $7.18
1. #4- DUD
2. #3- WINS $5K
Rest of the board:
Finally comes Rosanell Martin and the last IUFB on the train (conducted by Lanisha) is flowers for a year (Manuela).
Ronald plays Danger Price (which is $2,100, BTW) for the Harman/Kardon home theater speaker system (Amber), the Sony eco-friendly 52" LCD HDTV (Amber), one of the Honda CRF 100 motorcycles (Lanisha) and double FujiFilm cameras (Lanisha).

Jeopardy!: Despite his minor wagering mistake in Final Jeopardy! last night, Paul Kursky has earned the right to defend his championship tonight against:
Matt Cavanaugh (originally from Wilkes-Barre, PA)- Law school professor/CBA
Peggy Enright (Chevy Chase, MD)- Realtor
BASEBALL NICKNAMES (this category list has that kind of a theme)
THE BIG UNIT
THE IRON HORSE
SAY “HEY”, KID
We start this game with Baseball Nicknames…and Kursky ends that subject with the Daily Double and $1,800, which is nine times Enright’s early total. He then goes for a True DD. For $3,600 or zippo, here’s the clue:
If this alliterative nickname were literally true, Babe Ruth would have ruled part of Northern Pakistan.
“What is The Sultan of Swat?”…THE $3,600 DOUBLER IS HIS! At the initial timeout, Kursky’s in Lock Game Territory with $5,800; Enright has $600 and Cavanaugh has double her score, but it’s that much in the hole (Enright was also in the red, to the tune of $400 early on).
ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,400
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $800
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $3,200
POST-ROUND 1 SCORES:
Paul: $8,800 (still in LGT)
COMPLETE THE MOVIE QUOTE
NATIONAL PARKS & MONUMENTS
NEW TONGUE TWISTERS
Kursky’s gotten deeper in LGT by the time he finds DD #1 under the $1,600 National Parks & Monuments clue with $11,600; Enright’s down to $200 and Cavanaugh currently has six times her total. His wager this go-round is three grand.
This site, 20 miles from Philly, let Washington’s army keep pressure on the Brits, but was too far away for surprise attacks.
“What is Valley Forge?”…right for a new score of $14,600! But it’s Cavanaugh who gets control of the last one attached to the $800 clue on Measure Men with four large; with Kursky still dominating at $14,200, he really needs to bet big here. Meanwhile, Enright’s back up to $1,800. He tries for the second TDD of the night with this clue:
For a Germany physicist, this unit of electric resistance whose symbol is seen here.
“Who is Ohm?”…BULLSEYE TO STAY IN THE GAME FOR NOW WITH EIGHT C-NOTES!
ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $1,600
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $6K
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $7,600
SCORES FOLLOWING DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:

FJ! SUBJECT: Americana.
Made for only 19 years, it sold for $825 in 1908 & $360 in 1927.
Response: “What is the Model-T?”
Final score: $4,350
Matt Cavanaugh…gives the match to Paul Kursky, because he’s incorrect with “What is Currier + Ives?”, COSTING HIM EVERYTHING and sending him home with $1K. For the record, Kursky came up with the Model T to win $28,001 tonight and $39,301 overall!
