LMaD: We start off this morning's show with Jill & Richard from the state of Oregon (dressed as pizza delivery people) playing Keep On Rollin' for:
Curtain #1: Hoist home gym & boombox w/ 160 GB iPod ($2,450)
Curtain #2: inmodelhome.com black dining set ($5,724)
Curtain #3: Nissan cube
2. 1 (4)
3. 5 (9)
FINAL ROLL: 1- WIN
2. 5 (7)
3. 2- LOSS BY A POINT
As a consolation prize, Jill will win $50 per point for the team on her last roll of the dice...and she rolls a one.
Hoping to have better luck are Janice (dressed as a member of a school's class of '66 & a Peace lady) & Loce (who's wearing a polka-dotted bow tie & hat on red backgrounds); they each receive $600 to go shopping with.
Red small box: Loc- Leather Gucci hobo bag & iPhone4 ($1,849)
Green small box: BOTH- Moustaches for every day of the week
Big box: Janice- Home office, including an iMac ($2,647)
Curtain #1 (The Big Risk): Loc- Trip to the Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun from The Journeymasters ($6,200)
We next do some business with Tomoya (who's wearing a Mardi Gras mask). Her choice is a very small black jewelry box or Curtain #3. She picks the curtain furthest to the right...in the tiny box was a bankroll with a $5 bill on the outside & 17 $100s inside it, for a total of $1,705, but she just hit today's DEALER'S DELIGHT- the Nissan from the very first deal of the day! That means this is a PERFECT DEAL!
Elizabeth (who's a stay-at-home mom wearing a large polka-dotted skirt on a black background) next gets to play the Food Deal for a trip to Santa Barbara Wine Country valued at $6,055. This morning, she has to correctly decide which of these three ice cream companies was founded in California in order to win the trip- Haagen-Dazs, Ben & Jerry's or Baskin-Robbins. Her guess is B-R, and B & J actually got started in Vermont. Elizabeth can either try for the trip or forfeit this game in exchange for a $1,700 Toshiba 47" 1080p LCD HDTV (Curtain #3). She has enough TVs at her household, so she's pressing on...and WINS- PERFECT DEAL #2! For the record, H-D was founded in Brooklyn, NY.
Eric (dressed as a can of 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese) is on the spot for the Driver's License Deal; his starting bankroll is $900. Joining him are Charlene (birthday girl) & Bonnie (who's wearing a leopard dress); the women have to guess his age as close as possible, with the loser being eliminated with a Benjamin.
ANSWER: 37- CHARLENE WINS $900 BY ONE
Charlene turns down what's in the silver small box...a luxury spa experience worth $2,015. Curtain #2 is then offered to Eric, and thanks to his wife Cindy (who's wearing a kind of McCormick spice in her hair), he buys it...inside is a foozball table & the Arcade Legends machine, a game room package totalling $4,656!
Before we try to give away the Big Deal of the Day, a guy named Francis (dressed as a Julius Caesar lookalike) sees this Mystery Money Board:
? 5 ? 2
He switches the board prior to rejecting the silver envelope. Let's see how much he's won...
$ 2 2 5 5
...well, he's not going to be spending it on a ZONK ski trip!
THE BIG DEAL: Elizabeth opts out of going to S.B., so she'll try for possibly at least a much nicer vacation as part of today's Big Deal worth $24,175. She picks Door #3 because that's her lucky number. Door #1 had the Kawasaki jet ski, and Wayne Brady & Tiffany Coyne then allow Elizabeth to act as the model in opening the door...to her BD! Not only did she improve her trip location to the $8,990 Fairmont Chateau Whistler resort, she's also won the KIA Rio! As for Door #2, there was a $3,098 washer/dryer set.
And that brings today's grand total to a new SEASON-HIGH OF $57,203!
TPiR: Jeff Davis' hit list begins today with Alexandra Ixta, Dhruv Dhawan (who's wearing a L.A. Lakers replica jersey; that team opened their NBA season last night with a win, BTW, Katie Moeller & Daniel Blagaich (who's wearing a T-shirt with an old Chicago White Sox logo on it), and the opening IUFB is some digital recording equipment (Manuela at Door #2).
Let's see if Dhruv can score a slam dunk playing It's In the Bag (Amber & Rachel) with these groceries- a box of Sunbelt Banana Nut Granola Cereal, the Bounce Lint Roller w/ some Febreze on it, a big bag of Gold Medal All-Purpose Flour, a small bag of Ghiradelli Double Chocolate Premium Hot Cocoa Mix, a 10-count box of Drumstick Lil' Drums & a seven-count package of Duracel Coppertop batteries. His guesses:
BUCK: Roller (he originally had the cocoa here)
$3.49: Ice cream
After being obviously right about the batteries, he takes a $1,000 risk on the product that the Peanut Gallery made him change the cocoa to...BUT HE HAS EVERYTHING ELSE WRONG. Let's see about the rest of the right answers:
BUCK: You guessed it- the cocoa
$5.99: Ice cream
Fifth is Joseph Legone and the second IUFB on the train (Manuela) is a red Poulan XT lawn mower (Rachel).
All are over.
Daniel plays the Money Game for the Ram 1500 (Std., PEG, Prot, Window)(Amber at Door #2). Board:
MIDDLE NUMBER: 9 ($ _ _ , 9 _ _)
He DOESN'T really try in this playing- his choices of 23, 24, 22, 35 & 95 (except for 22, of course) add up to $177. The ARP was $22,983.
Contestant #6 is Liz Ponce-DeLeon and IUFB #3 is a pair of model train sets (Amber at Door #3).
Liz attends a Shopping Spree; up for grabs with a target of $4,600 are a dining set (Rachel), a North Star generator (Rachel), three designer dresses (Manuela) & the Wanamaker Music 15" LCD TV (Manuela).
1. Generator- $1,700 ($2,900 left)
2. Dinette (she originally wanted to pick the TV at this point)- $2K ($900 left)
FINAL PURCHASE: TV (the audience's not happy)- $614
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Daniel ($1,026): 55 + 20 = Three Quarters
Liz ($1,232; second spin was a DUD): 40 + 20 = $.60
Dhruv ($1,562): 20 + BUCK = OVER BY TWO DIMES; DANIEL GOES TO SHOWCASE
Seventh is Larry Bowman and the fourth IUFB is a carolinachair.com English loveseat (Rachel behind rising sign).
Joseph from Alabama plays Double Prices for the Little Guy Silver Shadow trailer (Amber at Door #2). His choices are $8,589 & $9,495, and he needs to pick $9,495 to become the first winner of the day...NO.
We might be trying again with Jaclyn Buzzetta and IUFB #5 is a Michele watch on Amber.
Alexandra from Pasadena, CA plays Cliff-Hangers (Rachel) for a four-night Carnival Elvis Cruise to The Bahamas (Manuela at Door #3) worth $7,308. And Scott Robinson's also making the SPs Elvis-themed!
Mr. Potato Head: $10- $20 ($15 left)
"Elvis On Tour" Blu-Ray Disc: $30- $35 ($10 left)
Monopoly Elvis board game: $40
Jeff last says the magic words to Russell Carter and the concluding IUFB's a silver washer/dryer (Manuela behind splitting sign). Katie's in danger of going to the First Four Breakfast Club.
BOOTED TO MEMBERSHIP DESK BY $32: Katie
Jaclyn plays Line 'Em Up for this year's Hyundai Genesis (Std., Mats)(Manuela at Door #2). Board:
?- $210, compact fridge (Rachel)
?- $98, tea set
?- $438, backpack trio (Amber)
Her first guess for the car is $22,835...two of the middle three digits are right. But Jaclyn then BLOWS IT by changing the second digit to one. ARP: $22,845.
My Pricing Game lineup:
2. It's in the Bag
3. Money Game
4. Shopping Spree
5. Line 'Em Up
6. Double Prices
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Joseph ($1,510): $.85
Jaclyn ($2,268): 70 + 20 = $.90
Alexandra ($8,798): 45 + 75 = OVER BY TWO DIMES; JACLYN RECEIVES TOP WINNER SHOWCASE PODIUM
The first Showcase has a golf theme. First, if you don't want to use up any gas getting to a golf course, here's a pair of beach cruisers (Amber in front of Contestant's Row). Secondly, you might be golfing in Amsterdam (Door #4; also includes hotel accomodations at the Hilton). Finally, here's a Volkswagen Golf 2-Door (Std., AT, Weather, Bluetooth)(Rachel at Door #3).

PENGUIN PRIZE HUNT: The OT could be headed to Santa Barbara after this endgame's over. They hit their stopper with :40 left, and capture Windows #2, #7, #8 & #9...but it's in #6, so they're going away with a Joola ping-pong table.
DFtL!: With $106K already given on this stage this week, Adam Jackson from Detroit (who has been married for 19.5 years and has three children named Blake, Kennedy & Taylor) is going to try to add a lot to that total tonight.

WoF: The first segment of this episode was pre-empted in my area due to severe weather coverage. The first Toss-Up category is Living Thing:
_ _ _ C _ / _ _ T
Jennifer solves BLACK CAT for $1,000. Here are tonight's players:
Jennifer Rena (Chatham, NJ)- Marketing manager
Karmin Prentice (Lake Stevens, WA)- Hairdresser
Dave Cannon (Crowley, TX)- Tax department accountant
$2,000 Toss-Up topic is Event:
W R E _ _ L I N G
M _ _ _ _
Dave wins this $2K WRESTLING MATCH.
Eggland's Best Jackpot Round category is Quotation and out on the wheel now is a $5K bonus from Ally Bank. He immediately picks up the SHinDigZ gift tag with a T, but he then hits the Bankrupt next to the $2,500 wedge just as quick to lose it right back. Secondly, Jennifer calls a $500 N while on Jackpot (and she obviously doesn't want to solve the puzzle right now) and buys an A, then she calls three D's for another $2,700 & buys four O's before calling a $450 R and buying three E's. But she then gets the left Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge to lose $2,900. Third, Karmin calls four L's while on Free Play for two grand, buys three U's and after calling three B's for another $900, we have...
D O U B L E
D O U B L E
T O _ L / A N D
T R O U B L E
...she solves "DOUBLE, DOUBLE, TOIL AND TROUBLE" for $2,650.
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Jennifer, Dave)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $7,650
Time once again for a Before & After Round. Jennifer starts by calling a $550 T, a $600 R and buys an O prior to calling an S for the Wild Card. Next, she purchases an A, calls two H's for the bonus $5K & buys three E's and two U's. After she lights up two N's for another thou & two D's for an extra $1,800, here's the board now...
H A U N T E D
H O U S E
D R E S S _ N _
...she solves HAUNTED HOUSE DRESSING for another $7,950 & $8,950 total.
Meineke Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round category is Food & Drink. First, Karmin calls four S's for $1,600, three O's while on FP, but then the first dud of the night in N while on the $3.5K wedge. Second, Dave has the same fate with a P call. Third, Jennifer calls two T's for $1,100, buys a trio of A's, calls a $600 C, buys a couple of E's, lights up the same number of F's for $600 more and purchases double I's to clean out the vowels. But after she gets a $550 D and a $1,200 pair of R's to show up, we then have to clean her clock out, because she Bankrupts next to the top dollar wedge to lose the WC & $3,300. Afterwards, Karmin puts up a $300 M and twin L's for another $700 and...
S O F T / T A C O S
F R O M / A
S E A S I D E / _ R I L L
...she wins another $2,600 and will be eating SOFT TACOS FROM A SEASIDE GRILL during her stay at the Omni Cancun Hotel & Villas worth $5,400, so this $8K round makes her new total winnings $10,650.
DUDS: $3.5N (Karmin), $500 P (Dave)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Jennifer (2nd tonight)
TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: BH7564149 (Brittany H. from Indiana)
It's Rhyme Time on the $3K TU:
S _ E A K
P _ E K
After solving this puzzle for a new cash sum of $5K, Dave gets a SNEAK PEEK of the layout of this next puzzle...
...which is a Phrase. He calls a quartet of T's for two G's and buys trip I's before dudding out with the L. Second, Jennifer calls an M & H for $300 apiece, but she then Bankrupts next door to the top dollar spot for the second time this evening (that's also her third Bankrupt overall) to lose the $600 right back. Third, Karmin lights up a $300 G and rings in...
I T ' _ / T H _ T
T I M _ / _ G _ I _
...IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN for her in terms of being paid off, which in this case is the $1K house minimum, for a new total of $11,650 in cash & trip.
SOLE DUD: $500 L (Dave)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Jennifer
After Jennifer runs into Lose a Turn this time and Karmin calls for a trio of T's for $1.5K, we go to Last Chance Mode with a Thing puzzle...
_ _ T _ _ _ _ T _ _ _
T _ _ _ _ _
...and the consonant value during this part of this game tonight's $1,400. On a later turn, after she has an H get put up by Vanna...
I N T _ R _ S T I N G
T H _ O R _
...NO INTERESTING THEORY is needed to determine that she's going to the endgame with an extra $7,100 in her pockets and $18,750 overall in cash & Mexico! Jennifer leaves with $8,950 & Dave takes home $5K in TU money.
So far, $32,700 in cash & stuff has been handed out on the night.
SOLE LaT OF THE NIGHT: Jennifer
TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding WC): $7,800
Maxwell House Big Money Round: Karmin's Bonus Wheel spin lands on the W and the subject's Thing. Her base setup on this one-wordy:
_ _ E _ _ _ N _ E R
She calls D, P, H and A and gets...
_ _ E _ _ _ N D E R
...without the I's, she has NO CHANCE IN HELL of solving VIEWFINDER (there should've been a hyphen in between that word, I think). And it wasn't the Mitsubishi Eclipse or the $35K that she loses tonight...
...IT WAS THE BIG ONE, SO WE HAVE A $100K LOSS FOR THE SECOND STRAIGHT WEEK (and that makes three overall this season). Maybe my station should've pre-empted this episode entirely. In any event, she has to settle for $18,750 in cash & trip.
J!: Jesse Cuevas is challenged by:
Sarah Whitaker (Jackson, MI)- Teen fiction buff
Bert Rubini (St. Petersburg, FL)- A functional dinnerware maker who uses a potter's wheel
The opening category board:
STATES' SECOND-LARGEST CITIES
THE NUMBER OF YEARS FROM...
ABBREVATED JOBS & DPTS.
Cuevas goes Daily Double Hunting almost immediately...it's NOT found in the first half of Round 1, and with $1,200, he has half of Rubini's leading bank; Whittaker's just $200 behind the man in the middle. The DD is later found by...Cuevas under the $1K Years clue with $4K (and about a minute left in this round); he leads Whitaker by $1,200 & Rubini by $1,400. He bets three grand. To move up to seven or drop to last place with one, here's the clue:
The end of WWI to the beginning of WWII in Europe.
"What is 21?"...BLACKJACK for $7K! At round's end, he's moved into Lock Game Territory with $7,600; Rubini's in second with $3,600 & Whitaker's slightly down to $2,400.
ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $1,400
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,400
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $3,800
IMPORTANT NOTE: Because of severe weather coverage in my area, I will NOT be covering Double Jeopardy! tonight.
SCORES HEADING INTO FINAL JEOPARDY!:
FJ! TOPIC: Fictional Characters.
Stieg Larsson created the girl with the dragon tattoo by imagining this fictional Swedish girl as an adult.
Sarah Whitaker's response was "Who is Pippi Longstocking?"...correct, but she only wagered $601, for a final score of $9,001. Bert Rubini...is also right and made a much better bet of $13,190, so he might win the crown tonight with $26,390. Jesse Cuevas...REMAINS champ with $27,600, for a two-day total of $51,600!
5th Grader: Lifeguard #3 was Lucas Emmoff (who has rescued over 500 people in 12 years), and he hoped to put a life saver on at least some decent money after answering one question from each of these categories:
1st Grade Nature
1st Grade World Geography
2nd Grade Measurements
2nd Grade Spelling
3rd Grade English
3rd Grade Astronomy
4th Grade U.S. Geography
4th Grade Social Studies
FIRST CLASSMATE: Armaan
OPENING SUBJECT: Nature
T or F: Coconuts typically grow on trees.
He knew that was True.
SUBJECT #2: Measurements
If November 1 falls on a Monday (like this year does), the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving is celebrated on what date?
He got November 25th to triple up.
SUBJECT #3: Astronomy
Earth circles The Sun in approximately 365 days. Which planet in our Solar System takes approximately 687 Earth days to circle The Sun?
His guess was Jupiter...incorrect. It was Mars, which at least most of the 5th Graders put down.
SECOND CLASSMATE: Jenni
SUBJECT #4: English
T or F: The superlative form of the word "cold" is "coldest".
Lucas thought that was True...yes for $3.5K.
SUBJECT #5: Social Studies
Assuming there are no vacancies, what's the total number of representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives from the 50 U.S. states?
He was uncertain, so he used the Peek on Jenni and took her answer of 124...NOT even close- it was 435.
SUBJECT #6: World Geography
What's the only ocean that borders North & South America, Africa & Europe?
Atlantic was right for Lucas & Jenni & $500.
FINAL CLASSMATE: Lauren
SUBJECT #7: Spelling

He was UNSUCCESSFUL at that because he left out a P.
FINAL SUBJECT: U.S. Geography
The Red River of the North is over 900 miles long and is located on the border between North Dakota & what U.S. state?
Lucas Copied Lauren's answer of Texas (which was also mine)...BUT WE WERE ALL WRONG, SO THE GAME WAS OVER. It was Minnesota.
