2/24/2011 Results

LMaD: Yesterday's Around the World show was just off the charts (Chico Alexander, you got Krista & Shiva confused during The Big Deal in your recap)! In today's first deal, the three bronze envelopes come out so that they can be picked on by Amanda (dressed as a jogger/runner), Jesus (dressed as a sparkling pirate) & Joyce (dressed as a whoopie cushion). Two of the envelopes have $500, while the other has $750...& that's chosen by Amanda, so she'll go first.

Amanda's Round: Money or Big Box?
PICK: Money
BB: Electrolux washer/dryer w/ laundry pedestals ($4,136)

One of the two silver envelopes has $750, while the other contains a grand...that's gotten by Jesus.

Jesus' Round: $1.5K or Small Box (Jonathan Mangum)?

PICK: Box
BOX: Mini hot tub- WALK THE PLANK

Joyce lastly keeps her $1,250 plus what's in the golden envelope...$50. That will cost her the Ford Fiesta Hatchback (Curtain #3) & she leaves w/ $1,300.

Lindsey (dressed as a bathrobe) & Christina (a birthday girl who's wearing a pink wig & boa) are about to play Ca$h Marbles.

Round 1:
Lindsey: $500
Christina: $500

Round 2:
Christina: ZONK
Lindsey: TRIPLE

Curtain #3's offered again & Lindsey bites for her $1.5K...NO car this time, but there's a Michael Amini Aico bedroom worth $6,339- PERFECT DEAL!

Jonathan's partner for the Interrogation Room Deal is Sarah (dressed as Ring Around the Rosie). The object in question is Curtain #2; it sounds like it could be game room furniture. But she's so confident that it's a ZONK that she immediately stops w/ $700...she's incorrect- it was $4,849 worth of game room. She also passes up this item behind Curtain #1...the two-story ping-pong table.

Here's another Joyce (this one's dressed as an iPad) ready to trade; her husband's named Ty, who made her outfit. She can either have the trip inside the two very small boxes (Jonathan; the first one has the words "Trip to..."), what's in the BB or some money. She definitely turns down the BB's contents...it was the Toshiba 47" LCD HDTV w/ the ASUS laptop & Sling box, all worth $3,300. But Joyce #2 hasn't been on vacation in a while, so she presses on after giving up $800...it's to Puerto Rico worth $6,559- PERFECT DEAL #2!

Christy (dressed as a pink/white fairy) is the first trader ever to go down the the Deal Road.

Curtain #1: $300
Curtain #2: FOUR WHEELS

She plays it safe w/ #1...the middle curtain had that chicken cart. She can continue to go to #1 or get closer to the BB. She's staying w/ her curtain...& she just dodged another ZONK w/ the trio of J.M. scarecrows! The last obstacle standing in her way of her curtain is the red small box (Jonathan), which has some money in it this time. But she's going all the way w/ #1...ultimately for $200, she's bought the chance to drive down her own roads in the morning's other DEALER'S DELIGHT- the KIA Soul!

In the very next deal, Jana (dressed as a penguin) CAN'T win a car also w/ the silver small box (Jonathan), because what's inside weighs less than 20 pounds. But she purchases its item (s) for $900...there's a Hewlett-Packard laptop w/ the Dr. Dre headphones totalling $2,400. We then continue w/ Joshua (dressed as Mediterranean Avenue from Monopoly), who's given the chance to buy something from Curtain #3 that weighs over a hundred lbs. He declines $800, but he does accept $900...by doing so, he said goodbye to a 2011 Honda ATV worth $4,399.

THE BIG DEAL: Sorry, Ty- Christy's giving up your potential second honeymoon for a shot at a $27,379 Big Deal of the Day. She takes Door #2 for Tiffany Coyne...oopsie- she trades down to the $2,579 TuffStuff gym. I hope she can work it out w/ him after getting back home.

Door #3: Mediterranean Cruise & Trip to Thailand

WoF: In a few moments, we'll announce who's the winner of the "Vanna For a Day" sweepstakes. But first, we need to start playing Thursday night's game, beginning w/ a $1,000 Toss-Up under the category of Things:

M A S T _

Jared solves MASTS & SAILS in order to be interviewed first amongst this trio of players:

Jared Burwinkle (Wilmington, DE)- A lumber company worker who works out daily
Lori Jones (Shiloh, IL)- Organization consultant for her own business; she also does some volunteer work
Jenny Clark (Redlands, CA; originally from St. Louis)- An administrative assistant who's a reader for a blind couple named Jeff & Sandy

$2K TU category's Phrase:

_ F F / _ _ E

_ _ _ R _ S

I just called yesterday's "Let's Make a Deal" episode this; Jenny takes control w/ OFF THE CHARTS.

Eggland's Best Jackpot Round topic is Fictional Characters & the trip being offered right now is to Sicily from EZ-Italy.com worth $10,212. First to come Jenny's direction is the left Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge. Secondly, Jared calls an S for that MDW, a $550 T & buys two E's, followed by an R for the Lobster Gram gift tag, a $500 D, two A's, two N's for another $600, but then a dud vowel buy of O. Third, Lori calls two L's for $1,200 & buys three I's to clean out the vowels, but she then goes Bankrupt next to the $2,500 wedge to get her remaining $950 cleaned out. After Jenny puts up two G's for eight bills, she hits the other regular Bankrupt to lose them back, allowing Jared...

G I L L I G A N / A N D

He first calls a $500 N, buys two E's, calls two T's for another C-note & purchases three A's before lighting up a $500 R & an $800 G. After buying double the O's, he gets four L's to show up for $3,200 more, then comes two H's for another $800. Here's the board now...

T H E / G R E A T

_ A L L / O _

After she buys the last vowels of a couple I's, we have...

A T / T H E / S P A

...she goes from zero to the lead w/ $4,750 & A ($7,720) SOOTHING EXPERIENCE AT THE SPA that's called the Maruba Resort Jungle Spa, for a total of $12,470 in cash & Belize.

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: KT2090007 (Kevin T. from California)

The $3K TU's about some Living Things; it's a one-wordy:

_ R A S _ _ _ _ P E _ S

Jared catches these GRASSHOPPERS to be a much closer second place w/ $11,950.

Person's the next subject. First to come his way are two T's for $600 & his/her E's, but his turn ends w/ a dud of R. Second, Lori calls for the twin H's worth $600, purchases an A & an O (both of which are in the last word), lights up a $900 S & double N's for $1,200 extra & buys the last two pairs of vowels (the I's & U's). Afterwards for Lori are a $450 C & a ring-in from her...

T H E / U N _ I S _ U T E _

C H A _ _ I O N

...she's NOT THE UNDISPUTED CHAMPION yet, but we add $2,150 to her leading haul, which is now at $14,620 in cash & trip.

SOLE DUD: $300 R (Jared)

We reach the all-important Last Chance Round w/ Same Letter as its category...& $6K being the consonant value! After an M appears...

T _ M _ T _ N G

T R _ _ T S

...Lori's just devoured $18K in TEMPTING TREATS & heads to the endgame as a result w/ $32,620 in cash & Belize! In addition to forfeiting the MDW, Jared misses out on a $30K pot, but he still leaves w/ $11,950 in cash & gift tag & Jenny has the $2K in TU cash. $46,570 in cash & prizes was won in this thrilling maingame.

WEDDINGS
R U "SHR"?

At the first break, all three are separated by $1K margins, w/ Brandon in first place at $2,800, followed by Raya w/ $1,800 & Idrees w/ $800. After Brandon takes the first "SHR" clue, Raya gets the $400 one just before locating the Daily Double in the middle square under that category. Of her $2,200, she risks $1,800. This clue could put her in front, at least for now:

In 1936, Adolf Ehinger improved upon this office device, fashioning it after a pasta-making machine.

"What's a shredder?"...that's the object for four grand & the lead! At round's end, she's barely leading Brandon $6,800-$6,200; Idrees' a distant last place w/ $1,400 & thus will begin Double Jeopardy!

Behind the fourth clue of this round, the $1,600 one from It's All a Myth, is a DD for Brandon; Raya's just stolen his end of Round 1 score, but Brandon's now leading her by $600. His wager on the following data is THE WHOLE WORKS. This True DD's worth $14,800 & the Lock Game Territory position or nothing at all:

It's the answer to The Sphinx' riddle- "What walks on 4 legs in the morning, 2 legs at noon & 3 in the evening?".

"What is man?"...this boy's now in the lead w/ the DOUBLER! But when she breaks five figures on the nose, Raya hits the last DD attached to the $800 answer about Rivers; she's $9,600 behind Brandon, while Idrees' is all but out of it w/ $2,600. She'll also try a TDD! This is to take a $400 lead:

The traditional source of this river is marked by a stone in a field 356 feet above sea level & three miles southwest of Cirencester.

"What is The Thames?"...SOUND THAT JINGLE FOR THE BRITISH PRODUCTION COMPANY OF THE SAME NAME; SHE'S RIGHT TO RE-GAIN THE LEAD!
