LMaD: Despite the fact that friends Bernadette & Tamara are dressed as giant dice, they are NOT taking part in any kind of dice deal. Instead, in the first round of this deal, Bernadette gets the choice of either $800 or what's inside the red small box, and it's the box she takes for the team...which contains a pair of Michael Green & Co. amatheus/diamond earrings worth $2,646. Tamara's round has her deciding from either $900 or the green small box, and she goes with the cash...but they leave behind a shopping trip to NYC worth $8,288. After that, this duo rolls the dice on Curtain #1, giving back $3,546 in cash & jewelry as a result...and they've won the Ford Fiesta Hatchback- PERFECT DEAL!
Now to two unrelated people- Mary (dressed as a bee) & Delbert from Oceanside, CA. Jonathan Mangum brings down these three grocery items- Funyons, Parkay & Trix. If they can pick an item that was nationally introduced before 1960, they'll win $3,000:
The decision this time is to either go for the three grand, take a sure $700 or go for the unknown prize (s) behind Curtain #3. Delbert wants the nicer money, while Mary's risking it all on the curtain. Here were the actual years for the groceries:
Delbert's $3K richer as of right now, but Mary instead has...a ZONK time machine.
Tracy (dressed as a doctor) plays the Four-Card Board Deal for either a golf retreat at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort in Palm Desert, CA with some TaylorMade golf clubs ($5,238) or the KIA Forte (Curtain #2).
1. #4- CAR
Her bailout offers are $500, $800, a grand, $1,200 & $1.5K, but she's going for the automobile.
2. #3- LOSS
The other car was behind #2.
Next is the Small Box Prize Deal for Merilee.
Red- $1K CB2 gift card
Green- at&t Go Phone w/ a year's worth of service ($2,100); QUITS
Yellow- KIA Forte (which was now behind Curtain #1)
The next three traders are Candice (dressed as a balloon girl), Davian (dressed as a prisoner) & Samantha (dressed as "Miss LMaD"). First, Candice gives the bronze envelope to Samantha and Curtain #2 to Davian...Samantha sees a $400 check, while Davian wins a kitchen appliance suite worth $3,472. Secondly, Davian adds the silver envelope to Samantha's bronze one, meaning Candice collects whatever's in the silver small box...Sam adds $500 to her winnings, and Candice wins a flash memory HD camcorder package worth $1,240. Third, Samantha hands over the golden envelope to Candice, so Curtain #3 belongs to Davian...Candice's check is worth $600, and Davian wins something else for his home- a Pier 1 Imports bedroom worth $4,070. Finally, we have The Big Risk behind Curtain #1, and both ladies are doing it...but they run into a giant broken computer.
The last regulation trader of the day is Michel, and he can either make a single withdrawal from the ATM or forfeit that for what's behind Curtain #2. He's going for the middle curtain...but it's the DUD golf set. That means instead of $4,200, he only gets $100 of that.
THE BIG DEAL: Bernadette & Tamara give back their car (maybe it's because they already had one at home?) for a chance at a $25,851 Big Deal of the Day. They pick Door #3, and behind Door #2 was an outdoor BBQ package worth $7,124. Behind Door #1 was...THE BD, which was a Trophy fishing boat. That means Davian ends as the day's top winner with $7,542 in merchandise and they are sent packing with a $2K Panasonic home theater.

TODAY'S PG RECORD: 1-5
TOTAL WINNINGS: $40,070
Pictureka!: The host of this is Cory Almeida, the announcer/guitarist is a guy named George "G" Gabriel and here are the first two teams:
Green Team: Laurelle & Loryn
Orange Team: Shannon & Tara
TRIP AT STAKE: The Verandah Resort & Spa (Antigua)
Round 1: They will have 15 seconds to grab as many of their colored fish cutouts from the studio audience at 10 points apiece.
Both teams grab 14 fish for 140.
Round 2: The GT's mother Laurie is dressed up as a boxed-up bunny and the OT's mom Dori is wearing a golfing gal costume. Each of them has a minute to find up to six different characters from a big maze before returning each one to her team's bin. Each match is worth 20.
1. Miss Fro (160)
2. Flying Nozilla (180)
3. Wind-up pig (200)
4. Stubborn deer (220)
5. Alien announcer
1. Happy snake (160)
2. Testy tiger (180)
3. Blindfolded Belinda (200)
4. Toaster ghost (220)
5. Skating elves
Round 3: In "Rock the Block!", both teams have to knock down a pyramid of blocks with images on them, and one member per team has to set a cube on a five-step staircase so that it matches the given object. The point values double again to 40 for this round of play, but the first team to complete their staircase, grab their checkered flag and shout out this show's title earns a 25-point bonus.
WINNERS: GT, 5-4 (they now take the outright lead, 445-380)
FINAL ROUND: On each turn, the team (while being harnessed to each other) will be asked to find an object that fits the prompt given by Cory before one team member deposits it into their bin. The first correct answer within the one-minute time limit is worth 50, and each right answer after that will be worth 10 more than the last. Whoever has the highest score at the end of this round wins the game and will play the bonus round for a chance at the family vacation.
Tara: Something with a hairy upper lip- Hairy pumpkin (430)
Shannon: A food you eat for dessert- Bundt cake (490)
Dori: A person in a uniform- Baseball player (560; they nearly went for Moustache Mack instead)
Not gotten to in time: A person wearing a cowboy hat
The GT also needs to find all of the first three objects to win with 625...and they do with five seconds left!
PENGUIN PRIZE HUNT: They will be shown a board of nine different-looking penguins for 10 seconds; the home viewers will get to see the board the whole time. After that, in relay form, the winning team will have 1:30 to go into the maze and correctly place as many of the penguins in the proper squares as they can. Once during that time, they can hit their buzzer to see the correct grid again. After time expires, if they clear the board, they win the vacation no questions asked. If not, they can still win the trip if one of their captured penguins conceals it.
They place seven penguins before finally hitting their stopper with 10 seconds to go, and they correctly place an eighth before time expires. If the trip is behind anywhere other than #7, they're going to Antigua...IT'S ACTUALLY BEHIND THE VERY LAST PENGUIN THEY CAPTURED, #4!
(Note: The winning card has the word "WIN!" behind it, while the other eight say "OOPS".)

WoF: The intro for "The Good Life Week" sees Pat & Vanna toasting each other at a NYC restaurant. And the first Toss-Up category of the week is Landmark:
B U _ _ I N _ H _ M
_ _ L _ C E
Christy solves the London landmark BUCKINGHAM PALACE, and it's time to meet everyone now:
Christy Evans (Raleigh, NC)- A married inside direct sales representative/event organizer for a women's networking group
Alicia Tolbert (L.A.)- An Asian Classics Institute of L.A. student who also volunteers for a charity called Soldiers' Angels
Matt Janson (Jacksonville, FL)- Married branch manager for a manufacturer of concession equipment/supplies
$2,000 Toss-Up category is Living Things:
S E _ _ _ L L S / &
_ E L _ _ A _ S
Christy triples her base money with SEAGULLS & PELICANS.
Gorton's Jackpot Round category is Phrase (w/ this week's category wipes featuring a limo) and out on the wheel now is a $7.5K check from Maxwell House. Christy calls a T for a Swan Chocolates gift tag and two N's for $1,800, but she then hits Lose a Turn after buying an I. Secondly, Alicia calls D for the first dud of the night. Third, Matt calls a $300 G but then a dud of S. Christy also duds out with an L. Back to Alicia, who calls an R for the Wild Card but she then loses it right back to the left Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge. Matt next calls a C while on Jackpot for $500, but he obviously can't solve the puzzle at this point for an $8,850 Jackpot, so he buys four E's and calls a $700 M before trying to solve with the following...
_ _ N C _
M E E T I N G
_ _ _ / _ E R E
...he solves FANCY MEETING YOU HERE for $1,250.
DUDS: $800 D (Alicia), $450 L (Christy), $900 S (Matt)
SOLE LaT: Christy
SOLE BANKRUPT: Alicia
FINAL UNCLAIMED JACKPOT: $9,550
The burning question What Are You Doing? is tonight's Prize Puzzle Round category. Alicia leads off with a $500 G, a $300 N and buys four E's, followed by four R's for another $2,400, three I's, but then a dud in L. Second, Matt calls four O's while on Free Play, a $900 D, two S's for another grand, a $550 C, but he then buys the only dud vowel on the board (A). Third, Christy Bankrupts in between $600 & $900. Alicia follows that with two M's for another $1,600, but she then gets the beeper for repeating the L. Matt then rings in...
O R D E R I N G
R O O M / S E R _ I C E
_ O / M _ / S _ I _ E
...he won't be ORDERING ROOM SERVICE TO MY SUITE, but maybe he will on his own at the Spice Island Beach Resort during a trip worth $8,105. With another $2,200 in his pocket, his new total's $11,555 in cash & trip.
DUDS: A (Matt), $800 L (Alicia)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Christy
SOLE DQ: Alicia (L repeat)
TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: AW0013005 (Arlene W. from Pennsylvania)
Meineke Mystery Round category is Before & After. Our current leader Matt calls three T's for $2,400 right off the bat and buys an A, then he calls an E while on FP, a $500 S and buys two O's to already clean out the vowels. He next lights up a $400 R, a $300 L, a $500 B, but he then spins up the other regular Bankrupt to lose $3,600. Afterwards, Christy makes the obvious mistake of duplicating the L, then Alicia calls a dud of C. As we get right back to Matt, he puts up a $500 P before he calls D for dud. After Christy calls an N while on FP for $500, we have...
L O B S T E R
T A N _
T O P
...and she solves LOBSTER TANK TOP to double that and inch up to four large.
DUDS: $300 C (Alicia), $300 D (Matt)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Matt
SOLE DQ: Christy (L bobble)
My favorite category of Rhyme Time goes with this $3K Toss-Up:
_ U M B O
_ U _ B O
Christy gets rid of some MUMBO JUMBO to sweep the TUs and go to seven thou.
Last Chance Round category is Thing and consonants are worth...$1.5K apiece, but Christy could still possibly catch up. After Alicia calls a pair of D's...
R _ N D O _ / _ _ T
O F / _ _ N D N _ S S
...it's always a RANDOM ACT OF KINDESS when we credit a solve to people like her when she starts staying it by the time the buzzer sounds for $4.5K! Christy leaves with $7K and Matt's won the match with $11,555 in cash & vacation!
So far, $23,055 in cash & Spice Island has been given away tonight.
SOLE DUD: G (Alicia)
TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding WC): $3,600
Maxwell House Big Money Round: As previously mentioned at the beginning of last week, the car available to be won this week is a Mercedes-Benz C300 Sport Sedan from Rusnak Mercedes-Benz of Acadia. Matt spins the ampersand and the topic is Thing. Starting with:
_ _ _ _ _ _ N E
He calls H, B, G and O and gets...
B _ _ _ B O N E
...his BACKBONE just won him...
...that sleek blue Mercedes (Std., Paint, AT, Trim) worth $38,275 plus another $5K, for a grand total of $54,830 in cash & stuff! And that brings the Feeding America Bonus Round Charity Bank to $177.5K!
BTW, each member of tonight's studio audience will also receive a can of Maxwell House Coffee!
J!: Mike Hodel made a respectable improvement in the winnings column while retaining his title at the end of last week, and he's going to try to do even better tonight against:
Carol Denny (Arnold, MD)- Writer for a non-profit environmental foundation
Dylan Payne (NYC)- A psychatrist whose wife Meredith was previously on this show; they got married 10 days before this episode was taped
The first six categories of the week are:
STATES' FORMER CAPITALS
NBA HALL OF FAMERS
DIED ON THE SAME DAY
LET'S CALL TRIPLE "A"
STRING THEORY 101
Hodel hits the Daily Double under the $800 clue in Let's Call Triple "A" with a C-note to his credit; he's $400 behind Denny for the early lead, while Payne's starting out with two Benjamins. He wagers the face value of the answer, so to shift the $400 lead over to his side, here's the clue:
The university environment.
"What is academia?"...correct for a new leading total of $1,800! He adds a grand to that by the first break; he's leading Payne by $800, and Denny's not too far behind with $1,800.
(Note: The $600 Died on the Same Day clue was about Art Fleming dying on April 25, 1995.)
LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $2,400
Scores after First Round:
THE HOUND OF MUSIC
STRING THEORY 201
Hodel has DD #2 of the night with the $800 clue about Libraries. With $7,400, he's $2,200 behind Payne for second place and $6K behind Denny for first. He's making it a True DD. To jump back into the lead with $14,800 or probably lose any hopes of retaining his crown, the answer this time is:
Raffaele Farina, known as Bibliothecarius XLVI, is its head librarian.
"What is The Vatican?"...DOUBLE to $14,800, giving him the lead back; furthermore, he SWEEPS that category to climb to $19,600! But when we get to the end of the round, the last DD attached to the last Jersey Girls clue is controlled by Denny with a second-place score of $14,600; Payne has $12K and Hodel's still leading with 20 big ones. She puts four C-notes and her second-place position on the line with this:
Governor of New Jersey from 1994-2001, she appointed the state's first female attorney general.
"Who is Christine Whitman?"...that's got it to stay in second heading into the final with $18,600!
SOLE ATTEMPTED TS OF THE ROUND: $2K (String Theory 201)
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS OF THE ROUND: $1,600 (The Hound of Music)
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $3,600
Scores after Double Jeopardy!:
They're entering a 4/5 betting situation.
FJ! TOPIC: Prisons.
Nazi Rudolf Hess in 1941 & the notorious Kray Twins in 1952 were among the last people briefly heard here.
Dylan Payne's response was "What is Alcatraz?"...no wonder why he's shaking his head about that response- he's incorrect. His suggested betting range was $6,601-$9,199...BUT HE BLOWS EVERYTHING. Carol Denny wrote "What was Nuremburg?"...NO. Her suggested wagering window was $5,401-$6,599...and she went with the former part of that range, making her final score $13,199. Mike Hodel risked $17,300 instead of $17,201...BUT HE SAID ALCATRAZ ALSO, making Denny the new champ and sending him home with $22,200. Correct: What was the Tower of London?
DFtL!: Will 18-year-old Jessica Garcia from Lakewood, CA (who is a sophomore college student that's also a singing/dancing car hop on skates) become the first $50K winner on this show? She'll have to know a song from each of these categories first before she even thinks about accmoplishing that:
