LMaD: The first deal is called Majority Rules.

Round 1: $700 or Silver Envelope?

ENVELOPE: Fred Segal Salon makeover ($1,220)

Round 2: The Big Box?

Brianna: TAKE THE DEAL

Round 3: Curtain #2?

Tyava: TAKE THE DEAL
Anthony: KEEP IT
Brianna: KEEP IT

CURTAIN: Home entertainment center, including the Samsung 55" LED LCD HDTV & one-year Netflix subscription ($5,504)

THE BIG RISK (Curtain #1): Anthony & Brianna- Crime-fighting donkey

Friday's featured couple is Ronald (who's wearing a red wig) & Takeya from New Jersey (who's wearing black/yellow attire), who are playing the Roll the Car Envelope Deal for the $19,994 VW Golf (Curtain #3).

1. #2
2. #5

Late in their playing, they're offered $1K, $1,200, $1,300 & $1.5K...but they're going for the VW. Well...THEY DIDN'T NEED THE SECOND ROLL- ENVELOPE #2 WAS IT ALL ALONG; PERFECT DEAL!

Travis could take a $4,900 10-day Caravan.com tour of Costa Rica if he picks the Costa Rican flag out of the three displayed. He picks Flag #1...but he listens to those moaning in the audience & bails out w/ a Nikon digital SLR camera & a JVC flash-memory HD camcorder, a prize package worth $2,050 (Curtain #3). Had he kept his flag...he would've gone nowhere. #3 was what needed to be chosen.

The next deal starts w/ Erica (dressed as Pocahantas) being given the option of a bankroll w/ a $20 bill on the outside or what's in the given black Marc Jacobs designer purse. She takes the bag...& in it is an AjMadison washer/dryer, for a total deal of $3,593. Since she passed on the money, it's going to William (dressed as a monkey) before being offered Curtain #2. William wants the money...in the bankroll are 34 $50s, so the cash adds up to $1,720. Finally, the middle curtain's passed over to Jennifer (who's wearing a bird hat), but she could give it back for Curtain #1 w/ a clue of Outdoors. She keeps her curtain...but gets eaten up by a ZONKMOBILE. That's going to cost her...a Bull BBQ island, patio furniture & gardening services for a year, which was all worth $7,832.

Whether he likes it or not, Wayne Brady's being put on the spot by Tiffany Coyne, forcing Jonathan Mangum to take over as host for most of this deal! He makes Brent the interrogator for this deal involving Curtain #3. Even though Brent's car broke down recently, he walks away from this for $1.5K...the Mazda2.

Lastly, Leah (dressed as a cop) sells this for a thou...a DUD yellow skateboard against a brick wall- PERFECT DEAL #2!

THE BIG DEAL: Erica takes a shot at a $26,174 Big Deal. She picks Door #2, which holds The Bank Vault...but w/ only $2,274 in it.

Door #1: Bayliner ski boat & trip to South Carolina (which was revealed second)
Door #3: Living room & a Gateway laptop ($6,433)

Consolation Prize: Cuisinart Elite II food processor

WoF: As Lora Cain's first week comes to a close, this episode begins w/ a $1,000 Toss-Up in the category of Thing:

A / _ I C E

B I G / S _ I L E

Stephen gets disqualified for leaving out the third word. That allows Alexandra to put on A NICE BIG SMILE & be talked about first:

Alexandra McNay (Kansas City, MO; originally from Quincy, IL)- U.S. Army Corps of Engineers worker
Nichelle Thomas (Inglewood, CA)- Event company owner/former 20-year member of the Navy
Stephen Hutchings (Huson, MT)- Missoula County building official

The theme of the $2K TU's On the Map:

_ _ _ / A R _ _ I C

O _ _ _ _

Alexandra's 2-for-2 w/ THE ARCTIC OCEAN.

A cruise to the Mediterranean from Oceania Cruises worth two bucks shy of $8K now floats on the wheel as we find out that the Gold Bond Jackpot Round category is Phrase; this is the other episode of the week to offer the Ritz Camera Image gift tag. She calls an immediate dud of N, however. Secondly, Nichelle calls two S's for $600 & two N's for another $900, but she then buys the only dud vowel on the board (I). Third, Stephen calls two T's for $1,600, buys three E's, calls a $600 V, purchases an O, but then comes a dud of H. Returning to Alexandra, she calls a $900 L, buys three A's, calls a C for the cruise & buys the last vowel of U. After that, though, she duds out w/ P to likely lose $8,398 in cash & cruise. Nichelle then lights the $300 B & $800 D to complete this board...

B A S E D / O N

A C T U A L / E V E N T S

...and she pronounces "BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS" correctly for $2,350 & stays in control.

DUDS: $300 H (Stephen), I (Nichelle), $600 P (Alexandra), $300 R (Alexandra)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $10,350

Prize Puzzle Round's about tonight's answer to the question What Are You Doing? To begin this round, Nichelle Bankrupts next to $3.5K on the spot. Second, Stephen calls two N's for the Wild Card but then hits Lose a Turn along w/ Alexandra. On Nichelle's second chance this round, she calls two G's for $1,600 & buys both obvious I's at the top, followed by an $800 T but then LaT. Stephen next calls two E's while on Free Play, but he then gets the other natural Bankrupt to give up the WC. Alexandra then purchases three O's for free while on FP, calls three S's for $2,100, three H's for another nine Benjamins & the same number of R's for 2,700 more dollars prior to buying the U to clean out the vowels, lighting a $500 F while on FP & Bankrupting the same way Nichelle did to begin w/ to cost her $5,950. After a $1K pair of W's & a $500 K, her next call of L is no good. Stephen then lights up a P and...

S K I I N G

T H R O U G H / F R E S H

P O W _ E R / S N O W

...he also wins the right to be SKIING THROUGH FRESH POWDER SNOW during his visit to the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort worth $5,700, $6,200 total.

SOLE DUD: $500 L (Nichelle)
LaTs: 3 (Everybody)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (ditto)

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: MP7672922 (Mary P. from Georgia)

Same Letter is the IHOP Mystery Round category. The new leader, Stephen, opens this round of action w/ a $300 T, the purchase of three E's & an $800 N, but that's followed by a dud vowel buy of A. Second, Alexandra hits LaT again. Third, Nichelle calls two R's for $900 but then a negative of S. Back to Stephen, he calls for a $350 L, but following that is his second Bankrupt of the night (next to top dollar in this case). Alexandra's second go-round sees her put up a $700 Y & a D while on the Mystery Wedge near the Million Dollar one. She risks her seven bills...& on the back is the 10 grand! That's followed by a trio of O's to close the vowel department but then a baddie of W, so she leaves $10,450 on the table this time. Following that, Nichelle lights up half a dozen P's as the SL for an additional $1,800 & we have...

P E R _ E _ T L Y

P O P P E D

P O P C O R N

...she eats some PERFECTLY POPPED POPCORN worth another $2,700 to her score, bringing her to $5,050.

DUDS: A (Stephen), $450 S (Nichelle), $900 W (Alexandria)
LaT: Alexandra (2nd tonight)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Stephen

This $3K TU under the theme of Person is important, because it's a low-scoring pitcher's duel...

S _ _ R E T

_ _ _ I R E R

...and Michelle acts as a SECRET ADMIRER to take first place over for now w/ $8,050.

Last Chance Round talks about the realm of Show Biz & consonants are valued at $1,300 a pop; this very likely will decide the match. When two T's are lit...

L _ M _ T _ _

_ N G _ G _ M _ N T

...Alexandra gets LIMITED ENGAGEMENT for an extra $2,600 & a final last-place cash haul of $5,600. Stephen's going skiing in Jackson Hole w/ $500 spending money & Michelle survives as the lowest-winning maingame winner of the season w/ $8,050.

Thus, just $19,850 in cash & ski trip has been won to this point on the episode.

SOLE DUD: R (Alexandra)

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding WC): $6,300

Big Money Round: Michelle Thomas spins the S in SPIN & the last BMR of the second week of '11 is Phrase. We give her to start:

_ _ R _

_ T / _ _ T

G, M, A & C DON'T appear in this puzzle...and she decides to POUR IT OUT instead of WORK IT OUT. That makes her the LOWEST-WINNING CHAMP OF THE SEASON...






























































































































...& she loses $35K.

J!: Anthony Fox's challengers this evening:

Matt McQueary (Cold Spring, KY)- Governmental auditor
John McLean (Pasadena, CA)- Software consultant

The Guys' First Six Categories:

DROP DEAD DIVA
THE BIG "C"

JUS-TIFIED
RESCUE ME
MY BOYS
THEY'RE ON CABLE TV

Fox finds the Daily Double seven clues in on the second Drop Dead Diva clue; he's leading McLean $2,200-$800. He wagers $1,400, so to double his early lead, here's the clue:

This Jazz diva who sang "Strange Fruit" was just 44 & under arrest in her hospital bed when she passed away in 1959.

"Who is Carmen Miranda?"...yes, she was a singer, but she WASN'T the right one- it was Billie Holiday, so he drops to a tie for first place at $800 apiece. He's back to $1,200 by the first break, which is 1/3 McLean's Lock Game Territory score of $3,600; McQueary's on the board w/ a couple hundred bucks.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $1K (Rescue Me)
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS: $200 (Drop Dead Diva)
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $1,200

Scores After First Round:

Anthony: $3K
John: $5,200
Matt: $1,200

Double Jeopardy! Board:

IT'S AN HONOR
SPOUSE IN COMMON TO... (two names are listed on each clue)
WHAT'S IN AN OLD TESTAMENT NAME?
WINE, WHITE WINE
SHAKESPEARE'S TRAGIC ENDINGS
SILENT "L"


The $1,600 It's an Honor clue nets McLean a DD w/ $7,600; he's leading McQueary by two grand & the champion by $2,600. His wager's $1,900 on this clue:

A communications building at Sam Houston State University in Texas is named for this alumnus & former CBS News anchor.

"Who is Dan Rather?"...that's who I would've guessed, & that's right to bump him up to $9.5K! McQueary later runs into the last one of the week underneath the $800 clue from What's in an Old Testament Name? w/ three clues left after that & this game's a real nail-biter- McLean's barely leading w/ $11.5K, followed by McQueary w/ $11,200 & Fox at $11K. This answer's worth an extra $1,200 & the lead to McQueary if he's right:

The first of the Hebrew patriarchs, his name means "father of many".

"Who is Abraham?"...correct for $12,400 & the right to go into first!

DJ! LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $6,400

Pre-Final Jeopardy! Scores:

FJ! WAGERING SUGGESTIONS (4/5 & Stratton's Dilemma):

Anthony: $501-$6K
John: Less than $6.5K or more than $10.5K
Matt: $9,001


FJ! CATEGORY: The Presidency.

From the same state, they're the two Presidents whose occupations are listed by World Book as "planter".

Anthony Fox wrote "Who are (Thomas) Jefferson & (Andrew) Jackson?"...Jackson's incorrect. His wager...a grand, leaving him w/ 10 times that figure. John McLean came up w/ "Who are Jefferson & (Jimmy) Carter?"...Carter's NOT the other President we needed, either. That costs him...$2,501, so that ELIMINATES him w/ $8,999. Matt McQueary thought the other right President was John Adams...NO, it was the first President, George Washington, so down to $4,999 he goes & Fox retains! Two-day total: $25,800.

Three add up to $500.
