The second pair of contestants are unrelated to each other- Rachael (who should've had a new baby last month) & Cameron. They've got the Nine Checks Deal.

Rachael: #7
Cameron: #4

1. $500
2. $700
3. $3K

Cameron turns down what was in the big box...an iMac & MacBook worth $2,498.

4. $150

Let's see some more unclaimed checks:

5. $1.5K
6. $99

Rachael doesn't play the odds and goes with Curtain #2 instead of keeping her check or bailing out with the computers...as a result, the two giant pennies KNOCK HER OUT OF THE GAME W/ $100. That will cost her...$3,700.

Lucy from Marietta, CA (who's wearing a green wig) is next given the choice of revealing the first two letters in either the prize behind Curtain #3 or in the silver small box (Jonathan Mangum). She chooses Curtain #3...M & I are the first two letters, so she might have a chance to go to Miami, FL. Lucy definitely rejects the box...in there was a Yves Saint Laurent black leather handbag & a red wallet w/ a thousand bucks inside, all worth $2,840. After being offered $500, $700 & $900, she stays w/ her curtain after giving back $1,100...and she HAS won a trip to the Mondrian South Beach Hotel in MIAMI BEACH worth $6,591! This deal will continue towards the end of this episode.

The next three traders are all female- Tana, Maria & Rhonda (the latter two of which are cheerleaders). They each start out w/ $700.

Small box: NOBODY- Luxury spa day ($2,015; everyone's given another $300 each)
Big box: NOBODY- Marionette show (they're awarded yet another $300)
Curtain #1: NOBODY- Dining room set ($5,172)

A girl named Stacy (who's dressed as a vampire) is in for a treat- she's about to play the show's new "Millionaire" rip-off called "Who Wants to Answer Multiple Choice Questions for Cash & Prizes"!

1. Which of the following was used in the first deal of the day?

A: A deck of cards
B: Dice
C: Unicorn


$500 GUESS: A deck of cards

2. Which of these prizes has appeared on the show already?

A: Trip to New York
B: Computer
C: Jet ski


$1K GUESS: Computer ($1.5K)

3. What was the amount of the first check during the Nine Checks Deal?

A: $99
B: $500
C: $1,800


$2K GUESS: $500 ($3.5K)

At this moment of the game, she can keep all the money she's accumulated or buy either Curtain #2 or #3, one of which has a new car behind it. She goes for it w/ Curtain #3...but it's a green ZONK Beetle. That means NO KIA Rio for her.

Let's get back to the First Two Letters Deal w/ Brian (who's wearing a yellow/black shirt w/ a whistle). He's offered the silver small box & Curtain #1, and he chooses to have his hint revealed for Curtain #1...the first two letters are C & A. He doesn't think a car's back there this late in regulation play, so he forfeits that for the box...he missed out on some BAD camping equipment, so he's won a Sea-Doo GTI SE-130 that's valued at $8,699- PERFECT DEAL! But he then sells it right back to go for the Big Deal of the Day!

THE BIG DEAL: It's worth $30,487 in cash and/or stuff this morning. With his wife Sandra (dressed as a Hawaiian) joining him for a little assistance, they pick Door #2 because that has their lucky number. Door #3 had a blue retro kitchen appliance trio worth $8,685...and the door furthest to the left contained a Wii Fitness center that included the Toshiba 47" LCD HDTV worth $2,140, so Brian has just become the BIGGEST WINNER OF SEASON 2 SO FAR!!! He & Sandra...are going on these really nice second honeymoons to the Four Seasons Resort in Lanai, HI & the Hotel Plaza Athenee in Paris!

Today's grand total is $43,728!

TPiR: Brad Sherwood first picks out Helina Golaw, Michel Berthiaume, Sylvia Mendoza & Amber Davis, and the first IUFB is a Dell desktop computer system (Manuela behind splitting sign).

Helina: $1,200
Michel: $1,300
Sylvia: $999
Amber: $1,100

ARP: $1,648

Instead of playing Pay the Rent (and Adam Sandler gets on camera as a result), Michel will have to settle for taking on Lucky $even for a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox (Std., LPO)(Lanisha). He gets off to a good start by identifying three as the second digit in the car's price. His second number choice is five...

$ 2 3 , 7 _ _

...two bucks, sir. He then goes down to four...

$ 2 3 , 7 8 _

...but that only leaves him w/ a dollar left. He then goes for nine...

$ 2 3 , 7 8 5

...good guess, but that's NOT the last digit in the ARP, meaning he loses.

Diana Fonsecca then takes his place and the second IUFB is several watches from the La Mer Collections (Lanisha & Manuela).

Diana: $1,700
Sylvia: $575
Amber: $1,200
Helina: $1,201

ARP: $673

Player #6 is Amy Bullockus and the third IUFB is an Aquavista wall aquarium (Rachel at Door #3).

Amy: $800
Amber: $801

Amy: $1,251
Amber: $1,252


ARP: $1,718

Amber, the last of Wednesday's First Four, plays Let 'Em Roll (Lanisha) for a Mazda3 (Rachel at Door #3) worth $20,435. The groceries on today's table are Mrs. Smith's Pumpkin Pie, Northland Cranberry Pomegranate Juice & a small box of Turtles. Prices:

Pie: $6.49
Juice: $3.39
Candy: $2.49

She only goes Lower on the juice for two rolls.

1. CAR/CAR/CAR/$1.5K/$1.5K- $3K BAILOUT

The last person to exit the Peanut Gallery today is Rachel Brigoni and the final IUFB's a Panasonic Blu-Ray Disc home theater system (Rachel at the turntable; includes the 160 GB iPod).

Rachel: $924
Rena: $1,250
Mitchell: $2,250
Amy: $1,260

ARP: $1,249

Rena made the one-buck overbid (and Amy was over by $11), so Rachel will play Bonkers for a contemporary home theater seating group, the JVC 46" LCD HDTV and a popcorn cart (Lanisha at Door #3). Board:

5 6 4 5

1. LHHL- NO
2. HHLL- NO
3. HHLH- NO
4. HLLH- NO
5. HLHH- NO
FINAL TRY: LHHH- LOSS

WoF: This "Wheel" Wednesday starts with a Toss-Up that's a Phrase:

H I T / T H E

_ _ _ K

Stephen doesn't HIT THE MARK with his incorrect response.

H I T / T H E

D _ _ K

Robert's able to HIT THE DECK for $1,000. Tonight, all of these military people are men:

Robert Foote (Missoula, MT)- A Marines gunnery sergaent/combat instructor who has been with them for 14 years
Stephen Milan (Waynesville, MO)- Air Force medic
David Garcia (Plainview, TX)- Army staff sergeant/recruiter

$2,000 Toss-Up category is Things:

P U _ _ - U _ _

& / P _ _ _ - _ _ S

David guesses PUSH-UPS & PULL-UPS...that's the right order for control.

And he starts the Eggland's Best Jackpot Round w/ a category of In the Kitchen; this round is also being sponsored by Sears, and the Dick's Sporting Goods gift tag is out there. He Bankrupts next to the $2,500 wedge right away; that's the third night in a row that the first spin of an episode has landed on one. Secondly, Robert hits the other regular Bankrupt. Third, Stephen calls two R's for $1,200 and buys two E's, but then a dud of S follows. David's back in command w/ two T's for $1,200, but he also duds out with L. On Robert's second turn in this round, he calls a $600 N, buys an A, but next is D for dud. Stephen next calls a $450 P, buys an I, but his next call of H is a dud. After David puts up two C's for another $1,600, we have...

C _ _ N T E R T _ P

_ I C R _ _ A _ E

...he solves COUNTERTOP MICROWAVE for another $2,800 and $4,800 total.

DUDS: $450 D (Robert), $800 H (Stephen), $500 L (David), $600 S (Stephen)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (David, Robert)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $10,400

This is a Before & After Round. Up first is Robert, who lands on Lose a Turn immediately. Second, Stephen calls a dud in R. Third, David calls two T's for $1,600, an $800 S, N & L, buys an E & O, lights up an $800 W and purchases two I's to clean out the vowels before lighting an $800 P and ringing in w/ the following...

W E S T

P O I N T

& / _ L I _ _

...but he goofs by two letters w/ WEST POINT & CLIMB, possibly costing him $4,850; prior to that, he hit the same red $800 space next to LaT SIX times in a row. Afterwards, Robert has two C's appear for $1,100...

W E S T

P O I N T

& / C L I C _

...and he gets WEST POINT & CLICK to slightly more than double his cash total to $2,100.

SOLE DUD: $800 R (Stephen)
SOLE LaT: Robert
SOLE DQ: David (missolve)

The IHOP Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round deals w/ some Food & Drink; this is also a pretty big puzzle. Stephen's first at bat by dudding out immediately w/ the R for the second round in a row. Second, David goes to Bankruptville next to the top dollar wedge for the second time tonight. Third, Robert calls an S while on the Mystery Wedge in between Free Play & LaT and flips it over...$10,000! After a T for the gift tag & two N's for a grand, he buys five I's & three E's but then a possibly fatal dud in M. Stephen follows that w/ the same Bankrupt David's gotten twice before, then David calls five C's for three big ones and we have the following up there...

C _ I C _ E N

E N C _ I _ _ _ _

_ I T _ / C _ I _ I

S _ _ C E

...but he gets DISQUALIFIED for adding an S to the second word of this puzzle, so he probably lost the mystery trip & $3K in potential spending money. Robert then runs into LaT for the second time on the night, then we have Stephen putting up a quartet of H's for $1,400 and here's the board now...

C H I C _ E N

E N C H I _ _ _ _

_ I T H / C H I _ I

S _ _ C E

...he eats this CHICKEN ENCHILADA WITH CHILI SAUCE to get on the board w/ that much dough and a trip to the GrandVelas All Suites & SPA Resort in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico worth $9,600, for a total this round of $11,000 in cash & vacation; Stephen misses out on $21,100 in cash & stuff as a result of some late bad luck, while David gave back $12,600 in cash & Mexico thanks to his wrong answer.

DUDS: $450 M (Robert), $300 R (Stephen)
SOLE LaT: Robert
BANKRUPTS: 2 (David, Stephen)
SOLE DQ: David (missolve)

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: BS15177 (Barbara S. from Louisiana)

Last on the TU topic list is Person:

R _ _ _ _ - _ A _ D

M _ N

Robert's the RIGHT-HAND MAN to boost his second-place score to $5,100.

The Last Chance Round subject is Song Lyrics and the consonants each pay off at $1,600. Late in this round, Robert has a P lit by Vanna...

T _ / T H _ / S H _ R _ S

_ _ / T R _ P _ L _

...and he knows "TO THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI" from the Marines' Hymn for an additional $4,800 and leaves us w/ a Benjamin shy of $10K. David's final check from this show is $4,800 & Stephen hangs on w/ his Mystery Round haul of $11,400 in cash & Mexico.

$25,700 in cash & travel was won tonight in yet another NASTY maingame.

SOLE DUD: N (Robert)

NO BANKRUPT TRASH TONIGHT

Maxwell House Big Money Round: Stephen Milan spins the A in GAME after a monster Bonus Wheel Spin from him and the category is Place. Starting with:

_ _ _ N

J!: The last remaining semi-finalists are Lea Tottle (FSU), Sam Spaulding (Yale) & Sid Chandrasekhar (University of Pennsylvania).

Their opening board of categories:

THE 15TH CENTURY
THE QUOTABLE STEVE CARELL
JELLY BELLY FLAVORS
CLASSICAL MUSIC
NEXT IN THE SERIES
MEET ME IN THE "QUAD"

After being correct on the $400 "Quad" clue to make it to the $1K mark, Sam goes Daily Double Hunting, starting in the middle of The 15th Century...it takes just two clues for him to find it under the $800 clue! With $1,600, he's $600 behind Sid for the early lead, while Lea's $200 in the hole. He goes for a True DD worth $3,200 when it comes to this clue:

In 1421, The Ming Dynasty moved its capital from Nanking to this city.

"What is Beijing?"...DOUBLER! By the time the first commercial break starts, Sid's just $400 behind him and Lea's $2K in the positive.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS OF THE ROUND: $600 ("Quad")
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS OF THE ROUND: $1K (Jelly Belly Flavors)
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $1,600

After Round 1:

Sid: $5,400
Sam: $6K
Lea: $4,200

Double Jeopardy! Topics:

HAIL TO THE CHIEF
"Adult Swim"
WORLD RELIGIONS
PLANT SCIENCE
TEXTBOOKS
SAME VOWEL WORDS (each correct response only has one vowel and may very well appear multiple times)

Sam finds his second DD of the night at the end of Hail to the Chief. He has $9,600, Sid has $5,400 & Lea's $400 out of second place. Sam's wager this time is the face value of the clue, which this time is:

On July 2, 1921, he interrupted his golf game & formally ended hostilities w/ Germany by signing a treaty.

"Who is (Warren G.) Harding?"...yes to slightly move into Lock Game Territory & $11,600! He then immediately goes hunting for the last remaining one of this semi-final show...but later on, it's Lea who discovers it underneath the $800 clue on Textbooks. Her current total of $12,200 is just $600 off Sam's first place score; Sid's a fairly distant third w/ $6,200. She bets three thou, so she could take over the lead after we reveal this answer:

Dr. H.V. Varter illustrated this 1858 text, an instant success despite bad reviews in the British Medical Journal.

"What is Gray's Anatomy?"...not related to the ABC medical drama of the same name, I do believe, she's RIGHT to become the leader at $15,200!

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $4K
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS OF THE ROUND: $1,200 ("Adult Swim")
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $5,200

Scores After DJ!:

Sid: $5,400
Sam: $17,200
Lea: $17,600

CORYAT SCORES:

Sid: $5,400
Sam: $16,400
Lea: $15,400

Sid should wager nothing or close to that for tonight's final.

FJ! CATEGORY: Phrases.

In Ancient Rome, it was a post where racers changed direction; since 1836, it's meant a moment change occurs.

Sid Chandrasekhar's response was "What is the end of the road?"...it might literally be, because we have to take away $3,600 for that, so he finishes tonight at $1,800. Sam wrote down something weird in "What is Fin de secele?"...that means "End of the century", so he's wrong. That costs him...$6,399 and sends him back to $10,801, so that means Sid's definitely going home $10K richer. Lea Tottle thought "What is a pit stop?"...she must've been watching way too much of "The Amazing Race" like yours truly, because that's NOT right, either; we call the moment in question the turning point. Her wager...$17,599- Sam's a finalist!

DFtL!: Tonight's cheerleader is (San Diego) Charger Girl Katie (who graduated from California State University-Long Beach; her charity is Susan G. Komen for the Cure). Her game's being sponsored by Yoplait Delights.
