LMaD: The opening deal has Komal from California (dressed as a housewife) deciding if she wants to keep the Cold Weather-related prize inside the treasure chest Jonathan Mangum's holding or Curtain #2. She wants the curtain in the middle...and behind it are a few things that she can use outside, a BBQ, a patio set & a sauna, all worth $7,090! With Adriana (dressed as a schoolgirl) now in possession of the chest, she gives the chest to Clayton from Detroit (dressed as a bass fisherman) for what's behind Curtain #1...a Honda ATV worth a buck shy of $3,000. Back to Clayton, he's offered $600 & $800 before he settles on $900...yes, it was a ski trip to Lake Tahoe at the Montbleu Resort, Casino & Spa & the Heavenly Mountain Resort worth $5,077.

Before we play the Lotto, we must do the first-ever elimination round for it; being called on are Dailese, Benjamin (dressed as a soccer referee) & Amelia (dressed as a clown). Here, they will each choose one of three colored lottery tickets. One of them is worth $100, another's worth $250 & the other says WIN. Whoever has the WIN will get a chance to play for a car.

Dailese: Green- $250
Benjamin: Red- $100
Amelia: Blue- WIN

Here's The Board:

Wayne Brady: $89.95
Tiffany Coyne: $5K
Jonathan: $3K (at Amelia's request)
CAR (Curtain #2): Suzuki SX4 Crossover (includes automatic transmission)($17,989)

Her three choices are #2, #4 & #7.

1. #2- SUZUKI
2. #4- WAYNE

She can go for either the Suzuki or the money in the host's piggy bank, or leave w/ a Sony video gaming package that includes the Samsung 46" LCD HDTV worth $2,880 (big box). She's going for it.

FINAL SCRATCH-OFF: #7- WINS SUZUKI; PERFECT DEAL!

(Note: Wayne scratched off all of her chosen spaces w/ the big coin.)

Brenda (dressed as a pirate) has a tough act to follow w/ the choice of the silver small box or Curtain #3. She picks the curtain...the Bank Vault's back there, but w/ $187 inside. That will cost her...a Jimmy Choo hobo bag, a pair of red Manolo Blahnik heels & a blue topaz necklace totalling $7,142.

The next person to see the same small box is Heather (dressed as a portrait); to help her out determine what's inside, Wayne & Jonathan will Rap Her a Deal. The rap we hear sounds like it could be a trip someplace. She passes up $700...& she's won some skydiving lessons, but they're DUDS. Nicole's round involves Curtain #2; her rap is about a car back of there. It's the KIA Soul...but she forfeits it for $1,300.

After that minor disappointment, Ciana goes aboard The Ca$h Train.

1. #2- $250
2. #1- QUADRUPLE

The Sure Thing Jackpot for this playing leads off w/ a $2,499 dining room (Curtain #1), but she'll go at least one more round.

3. #2- $1,250 ($2,250)

$300's added to the STJ, but Ciana will stay on the train.

4. #3- $2K ($4,250)

With no hesitation, she's going the distance.

FINAL ROW: #3- LOSS

#1- $2K
#2- $2.5K

For a quickie deal, Lisa (dressed as an Irish dancer) can either have a minimum of $200 in the silver envelope or Curtain #2. She takes the curtain...that sends her home w/ $100 & a supply of ZONK Chinese food instead of two G's.

THE BIG DEAL: Komal DOESN'T win a $24,499 Big Deal of the Day w/ Door #2. As it turns out, she was just meant to get some cooking stuff; in this case, it's a stainless-steel range & cookware, all valued at $2,743.

Door #1: Modern home office ($6,637)
Door #3: Trip to Puerto Rico w/ luggage & Jeep Patriot Sport FWD (which was revealed second)

Aaron was off by a $4 margin, so he could turn it into as much as $100K playing PAY THE RENT (Rachel at the house, Manuela w/ the groceries). His items to the super-de-duper win are Kermel Season's White Cheddar Popcorn Seasoning, a family-size box of Cocoa Pebbles, a 16-ounce bag of Goya Salvadorean Beans, Sara Lee Strawberry Cheesecake, a bottle of Pedialyte bubble gum flavor & 50 Solo plastic cups.

I hope that dessert's not worth at least nine bucks or so...






































































































































...NO, it was $6.69! He came close, though, on the correct house placements- the formula & the seasoning should've been swapped. This is the third time that's happened (the first two times, $10K was lost when trying for the grand prize).

The SPs are:

SOLE DQ: 20 pick on next-to-last try

_ _ N _ E T

At SUNRISE AND SUNSET, Stephen wins $1,000. Here's the lowdown on tonight's contestants:

Stephen Thomas (Charleston, SC; originally from Baltimore, MD)- 2nd Grade teacher/youth sports teacher
Alyssa Levy (Edgewater, NJ)- A speech/language therapist in NYC who got engaged immediately after she had done some skydiving
Martha Flager (West Hills, CA)- A 19-year travel agent who has been married for 43 years (she also plays poker)

Food & Drink is what's next on the TU menu:

S _ _ T E E D

S _ R I _ P

Alyssa draws a blank.

S _ U T E E D

S _ R I M P

I ate some SAUTEED SHRIMP w/ onions covered in hot sauce while eating Mexican take-out food last night & Stephen has the tripler.

After a trip to Fiji's Treasure Island Resort worth $9,650 appears on the wheel, the Eggland's Best Jackpot Round category's Phrase, but Stephen duds out immediately w/ T (the gift tag for tonight & Thursday is scheduled to come from TravelSmith). Secondly, Alyssa calls two S's for $1,200, buys an A & I, inserts two R's for another $1,800 & purchases six E's before running into Lose a Turn. Third, Martha calls three N's for $1,800 & she tries to solve this right now...

N _ / E _ _ E R I E N _ E

N E _ E S S A R _

...there's NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY for her to do just that.

SOLE DUD OF THE ROUND: $300 T (Stephen)
SOLE LaT: Alyssa
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $7,400

It's Same Name Round time. First off, Alyssa hits the Million Dollar Wedge's right Bankrupt. Second, Martha calls two N's for $1,200 & buys the same number of E's, followed by three R's to add $1,350, two I's, but then a dud of F. Third, Stephen calls for a couple S's for a C-note & buys two A's to clean out the vowels prior to lighting a $500 P & T & Bankrupting in between $600 & $900 to lose $1,750. After Alyssa gets her second LaT tonight, Martha lights up a $600 G but then calls a dud of C. With another chance in this round because of her, Stephen calls a $500 L while on Free Play, but next comes another dud of M while on the Wild Card. Eventually, Alyssa just tries to solve given the following...

P A S S E N G E R

& / _ R I _ A L

T R A I N

...and she takes the PASSENGER & BRIDAL TRAIN to get on the board.

DUDS: $900 C (Martha), $300 F (Martha), M (Stephen)
SOLE LaT: Alyssa
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Alyssa, Stephen)

IHOP Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round topic is What Are You Doing? To begin, Martha calls two N's for $800 & buys an obvious I, then comes a $600 G, a $450 R, but after her E buy is a negative O purchase, the only dud vowel on this board. Second, Stephen spins the other regular Bankrupt. Third, Alyssa calls two L's for the MDW but loses it just as quick to the first Bankrupt Stephen hit in the last round; both have his/her Bankrupts to their credit this evening. Returning to Martha, she calls a $450 P, buys an A, lights up double M's for $7K extra and we have...

P L A _ I N G

M _ / L _ _ _ _

N _ M _ E R _

...she won't be PLAYING MY LUCKY NUMBERS, but she has won another $8,300 & a stay at The Venetian valued at $5,510, so she now has in her till $15,610 in cash & Las Vegas.

SOLE DUD: O (Martha)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Stephen, Alyssa)

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: AA2950093 (Aimee A. from Georgia)

The $3K TU asks for the Proper Name of an actress:

_ H R I _ T _ _ A

_ P _ _ _ G A T _

Alyssa's correct on CHRISTINA APPLEGATE to multiply her thou by four.

Some Living Things are now on the board. She starts by lighting the obvious S's for a grand, buys five E's, but her next vowel buy of A is a dud. Second, Martha calls a $300 T but then LaTs out. Third, Stephen has a $5K N lit before we go to Last Chance Mode...

_ E N T _ _ E _ E S / &

_ _ _ _ _ _ E _ E S

...& each of the remaining consonants yields a $1.5K payoff. He next has the L pairing appear...

_ E N T _ _ E _ E S / &

_ _ L L _ _ E _ E S

...but he can't make the $8K solve. Alyssa's next w/ those P's...

_ E N T _ P E _ E S / &

_ _ L L _ P E _ E S

...w/ about a second left, she catches these CENTIPEDES & MILLIPEDES for $3.5K more & a total take tonight of $7.5K. Stephen heads home w/ $3K in TU cash & Martha wins w/ $15,610 in cash & trip.

So far, $26,110 in cash & vacation has been won tonight.

SOLE DUD (prior to final bell): A (Alyssa)
SOLE LaT: Martha

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding MDW): $1,750

Big Money Round: After Martha spins the Bonus Wheel, it lands on the R. The bonus puzzle subject will be Event. Here's what Vanna lights up first:

_ _ _ E

T _ _ R

The CDMO combination brings her...

_ _ _ E

T O _ R

...looks like she'll have to take more than one BIKE TOUR in the near future, because she loses the Miata. She'll have to settle for $15,610 in cash & Vegas.

J!: Anthony Fox's hoping that he'll get at least an important fourth win tonight as he goes to war w/:

Carrie Oken (NYC)- TV lighting technician
Ali Binazir (Santa Monca)- Author/hypnotherapist

The First Six Categories:

ITS LONGEST BORDER (each correct response is a country)
THE CINEMA
BURGER JOINTS
THE GARMENT DISTRICT
"Y" ASK
TEAM JACOB

On the night's eighth clue posed, Binazir takes the Daily Double under the middle clue in Its Longest Border & narrowly trails Fox $1,400-$1,200, while Oken's off to a bad start w/ $1K in negative territory. He wagers "the whole schmeer" (which is his way of saying "Let's make it a True DD") on this clue:

Vietnam's longest.

"What is Thailand?"...NOT it; Laos was the correct country. But he does make it to $1,800 by the first break, which is half of Fox's halftime score. Time runs out before we can get to the last two Team Jacob answers.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,200
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,400
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $4,600

Scores After Opening Round:

Anthony: $4,200
Ali: $2,400
Carrie: NOTHING

Double Jeopardy! Has To Offer:

AMERICAN WOMEN NOVELISTS
ALBUM TITLE REFERENCES
THE BEAR FACTS
WHERE YOU'D FIND
"PAY" UP
TEAM EDWARD

Fox leads off this round of play w/ right responses on the first two clues regarding Album Title References prior to the DD behind its middle clue. Even though he's slightly in Lock Game Territory w/ $5,400, he's also going for a TDD. For $10,800 or to fall to last place, here's the clue:

U2: Yucca Brevifolia

"What is Joshua Tree?"...IS RIGHT FOR THE $10,800 DOUBLER! Towards round's end, he finds the other one underneath the middle Team Edward spot w/ $19,200, but he's NOT in LGT at this time, since Binazir's at $10,400. He only wagers five Benjamins on:

His first play was 1959's "The Zoo Story", a one-act drama.

"Who is Robinson?"...for the second night in a row, wagering just $500 on the last available DD was a good move; the correct response was "Who was Edward Albee?" & he's back to $18,700.

DJ! LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $10,400

Post-DJ! Scores:

Anthony: $18,700
Ali: $12,400
Carrie: $1,600 (she got such a clue in Team Edward just to even make it to Final Jeopardy!)- MATHEMATICALLY ELIMINATED

CORYAT SCORES:

Anthony: $15K
Ali: $13,600
Carrie: $1,600


FJ! TOPIC: State Names.

These are the two U.S. states w/ only one consonant in their names.

CARRIE:
Response:
NOTHING 
Wager: $400
Final score: $1,200

Ali Binazir's question here was "What are Iowa and..." that's it. The $2K penalty drops him to likely a final second-place score of $10,400. Anthony Fox completely missed it w/ "What are Hawaii & Alaska?"; the other correct state was Ohio. That's also the fifth straight episode we've had a TS in the final. He risked...the obvious $6,101, so he's done it again w/ a total of $12,599 & is in Tournament of Champions contention by hook or by crook w/ a four-game sum of $51,998!
