12/7/2010 Results

LMaD: Donovan (dressed as a Jamaican), Taylor (dressed as a beach lady) & Shaunie (dressed as a balloon lady) each get $600 to start the day, and they could double that if they can find a certain object in their wallet.

Donovan's Round: $10 bill- NO
Taylor's Round: Mirror- NO
Shaunie's Round: Keyring w/ at least three keys- YES ($1,200)

After that part of the opening deal's done, Donovan buys what's behind the big box...it's a small kitchen worth $2,781. Taylor then makes a $600 purchase of Curtain #2...but all that gets her is a kiddie train ride w/ Jonathan Mangum. Finally, with no hesitation, Shaunie gives back her $1,200 for whatever the main small box hides (Jonathan)...a trip to New Zealand (and Wayne Brady does the plug for it!) worth $7,827!

This morning's featured couple are Joshua & Shauna (who have been married for four months; he's wearing a "Just Hitched" sign, while she's wearing a "Ball & Chain" sign). In the silver small box this time (Jonathan) are some black Prada loafers for him & some Manolo Blahnik for her; there's money inside both pairs of shoes.

Joshua's Round: Pradas or red small box?
PICK: Shoes
BOX: Nikon digital SLR camera & Sony HD camcorder ($2,790; he's a photographer)
SHOES: $400 ($895 total)

Shauna's Round: Manolos or green small box?
PICK: Shoes
BOX: Louis Vuitton red handbag & a luxury health spa day ($3,110)
SHOES: $600 ($1,485 total)

THE BIG RISK (Curtain #1): NO- Jacuzzi/sauna package ($7,145)

David & Leanna are about to do a special Hula Hoop version of Dance Me a Deal in front of Curtain #2. According to the Peanut Gallery, the winner is...Leanna. After David gets $100, out comes from one of Wayne's pockets an iPhone that has a clue from executive producer Mike Richards- what's behind Curtain #2 could change Leanna's life. Or, she could have the white envelope. She wants the middle curtain...and there's a treadmill & an ultra-thin speaker system that includes the 16 GB iPod Nano, all worth $4,179. As for the envelope...there was a cruise to a garbage barge! Another iPhone deal will be done later.

Next, Mindy (dressed as The Sun) gets to pick from one of four auto mall brochures. Three of them hold $250, but the other one has the pink slip to the Chevrolet Colorado (Curtain #1). She picks #4, and her Sure Thing Jackpot immediately gets started behind the big box w/ the Samsung 40" LCD HDTV, an iPad & the Sling box worth $2,298. After she turns down a $300 bonus for it, #2 & #3 both had the cash in them. The final offer is $3,398 in cash & electronics (including $1,100; the other cash offers were $600, $800 & a grand), but she's going for that truck...AND WINS IT- PERFECT DEAL!

The next two chosen people are Raven & Joseph. The first decision for each of them is a bankroll w/ a buck on the outside or the motorized prize behind Curtain #3. Raven keeps the cash, but Joseph instead gets...the Sunny motorscooter package ($2,199). That leaves Raven w/...10 BENAJMINS, for a total of $1,001 for her. Curtain #2 has something travel-related, but neither one goes on...and they WON'T be going on the $5,837 Jackson Hole adventure. Finally, the white envelope's back in play, but they also give back...numerous paper dolls!

Lastly, Sharon (dressed as a ketchup bottle) is tempted by what Tiffany Coyne has brought that's in that silver small box- the MacBook Air & iPhone4 w/ a year's worth of service, a prize package valued at $3,998. But the iPhone clue this time comes from Jonathan, and he says there's a car behind Curtain #1. Sharon believes it's a new one...NOT SO- it was an orange DUD Beetle.

THE BIG DEAL: Shaunie gets a chance at the $24,961 Tahoe Q4 boat extravaganza. She picks Door #3 instead of #2. Behind Door #1 was a dining room w/ a private chef for an evening, which was all worth $6,562. Door #2 had...the Bank Vault w/ $1,858 left behind- THAT MAKES HER THE FOURTH STRAIGHT AIRED BD WINNER, WHICH IS A NEW RECORD FOR THIS INCARNATION OF THE SHOW!!!

This morning, $55,366 in cash & prizes were won, and the grand total over the past four aired episodes is $240,625!!!

Nicole first calls two R's for $1,200 & buys three E's, then she calls two S's for another thousand bucks, buys two A's & calls four T's for another two grand before buying the rest of the vowels in this puzzle (two I's, an O & a U). After that's done, she lights up three P's for $1,800 more and we have...

P R E T T _

P _ E A S E / _ I T _

S U _ A R / O _ / T O P

...when she says "PRETTY PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON TOP", we gladly give her another $5,150, making her new cash winnings $7,150.

PERFECT ROUND
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $7,300

The Prize Puzzle Round this evening has a bigger-sized Phrase. Jia starts this crucial round off by calling three T's for $900 and buying four E's & A's, followed by two R's for another $1,600, two H's to add $7K, an O buy but then a dud vowel purchase of I (the only such vowel on the board) to leave $8.5K cash on the table. Secondly, Aaron hits Lose a Turn. Third, Nicole calls an $800 F & purchases the leftover pair of U's prior to lighting four L's for the Vegas vacation, two S's & B's at $900 per pair and the board has up there...

A / B R E A _

F R O _ / A L L / T H E

H U S T L E / A _ _

B U S T L E

...she'll definitely need A BREAK FROM ALL THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE, because not only has she banked another $2,350 and the Vegas getaway, she's also won a $6,800 trip to the Almond Smugglers' Cove, for a new total of $22,300 in cash & trips!

SOLE DUD: I (Jia)
SOLE LaT: Aaron

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: BK9334288 (Betty K. from Indiana)

IHOP Mystery Round category is Before & After. Aaron immediately duds out w/ T. Second, Nicole calls three R's for $1,350, buys a couple of A's & E's, but she then calls a dud in S. Third, Jia calls another negative consonant of N. Aaron's second turn of this round has him lighting a $3.5K D, buying double O's, calling a $300 G & buying an I to clean out the vowels. Afterwards, he puts up twin L's for $900 extra and here's the board this time...

_ E L L O _

_ R I _ _

R O A D

R A G E

...he averts the YELLOW BRICK ROAD RAGE to get on the scoreboard w/ $4,200.

DUDS: $550 N (Jia), $350 S (Nicole), $350 T (Aaron)

$3K TU topic's Thing:

_ O M _ O R _ A B L E

L E A _

Jia's incorrect w/ MEMORABLE LEAD.

C O M F O R _ A B L E

L E A _

Aaron's wrong by a letter w/ COMFORTABLE LEAP.

C O M F O R _ A B L E

L E A D

Nicole will add to his COMFORTABLE LEAD after stealing this one to bring her haul to $25,300 in cash & travel.

The next subject will be Place, but she duds out on the spot w/ R. The same goes for Jia w/ S. Aaron then calls an $800 T, buys a pair of E's, calls an $800 N & purchases a couple O's, followed by a $1K pair of L's, but he then buys the only dud vowel of this puzzle (A). Returning to Nicole, she calls a couple C's for $1,100 before the big bell goes off for Last Chance Mode...

C O _ _ _ N _ T _

C O L L E _ E

...and the other three consonants are worth $1,300 apiece. She calls the G next but can't make the $2,400 solve. That allows Jia to have the M's lit...

C O M M _ N _ T _

C O L L E G E

...and she gets COMMUNITY COLLEGE for the extra $2,600 and a final third-place score of $3,600. Aaron leaves w/ his $4,200 Mystery Round bank & Nicole wins the match by a landslide w/ $25,300 in cash & vacations!

$33,100 in combined maingame winnings were accumulated tonight.

DUDS (all prior to final bell): A (Aaron), $300 R (Nicole), $500 S (Jia)

NO BANKRUPT TRASH TONIGHT

Maxwell House Big Money Round: Let's see if Nicole really takes the cake here. She spins up the I in WIN and her bonus category's revealed to be People. Starting with:

_ _ _ N _

_ _ L _ S

She calls D, C, G & A and gets...

_ _ _ N G

_ _ L _ S

...these YOUNG FOLKS REVOKE the extra $30K she could've won here, but at least she still has $25,300 in cash & trips.

We then see a clip of the intro to the first episode of Armed Forces Week from Norfolk in May 1995 at the end of this show.

J!: Unless Josh Powell wins a great deal of money tonight, he's probably going to have to retain his title on both this episode & tomorrow's to have any chance of making the Tournament of Champions. His challengers this time:

Jamie O'Hagin (Center Tuftonboro, NH)- Museum education coordinator
Rich Zayatz (Asheville, NC)- Emergency police dispatcher

First six categories:

LOST IN SPACE
TIMELESS TV
LET'S HIT IT
WORLD BOOK DESCRIBES THE "G" MAN
MONEY SLANG
RVs (Clue Crew clues from the RV Museum & Hall of Fame in Elkhart, IN)

At the first break, Zayatz leads with $2,600, followed by O'Hagin w/ $1,200 & Powell w/ NOTHING (but he was originally $600 in the hole). By the time Powell finds the Daily Double under the middle clue on Money Slang, everybody's separated by $400 apiece, with the champ at $2,200 & O'Hagin now a slight third w/ $1,800. He goes ALL-IN on this clue (I was surprised Alex Trebek didn't try to correct him to say "Let's make it a True Daily Double" instead):

The shell of this mollusk is composed chiefly of calcium carbonate.

He gets the $4,400 DOUBLER & the lead w/ "What is a clam?"! We don't have time for the last two RV clues, but Powell's moved into Lock Game Territory w/ $7,400, leaving the challengers w/ $2,800 apiece.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $1,600 ($800 clues in Lost in Space & Timeless TV)
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TRIPLE STUMPER OF THE ROUND: $800 (Money Slang)
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $2,400

Double Jeopardy! Board:

PLAY HEROINES
DEFENESTRATION IN CINEMA
A MASSIVE "M"ETROPOLIS (each city's population numbers is given)

TAINTED GOV
MEDICINE
FOUR CONSONANTS IN A ROW

DD #1 is discovered by O'Hagin w/ $4,800. The champ's still slightly in LGT w/ $9,800 & Zayatz's back in last place at $3,200. She wagers $3K on this:

18 million: On the Arabian Sea.

"What is Marrakech?"...that Moroccan city is incorrect, so she's back in last w/ $1,800; it was Mumbai. Powell later gets a hold of the last one underneath the middle square in Four Consonants in a Row; he's even deeper in LGT to the tune of $13,400; O'Hagin's back up to $4,200 and leads Zayatz by a C-note for second. He makes a $3,400 bet this time.

A loop found on footwear, it's a symbol of success through one's own efforts.

"What is a boot strap?"...yes indeed to take him to $16,800! Time expires before we can get to the $1,600 clues in Play Heroines & Defenestration in China, as well as the $1,200 answer in the former category.
