Had she given up all the money for what's behind Curtain #2, she would've won...a 2011 KIA Rio LX (Std., Mats) worth $15,785.

The third bachelor to play "The Dealing Game" is Krystina (dressed as a cow).

Jonathan Mangum: #1
Wayne Brady: #3

Questions:

1. If I were to spend an evening w/ your prize, what kind of experience should I expect?
2. If I were to describe your prize to my friends using only two words, what words would they be?

One of those curtains has the Jeep Patriot behind it. She's siding w/ Wayne & #3...BUT SHE'S WRONG; she'll have to settle for sitting in a fake roller coaster car.

Trader #3 this morning is Ed (who's wearing a red wig & a pink boa), who has a chance to win that $8,990 Whistler trip (Curtain #2). Wayne pulls out two silver envelopes w/ these latitudes & longtiudes on it:

A: 50.117 N, 122.946 W
B: 44.855 N, 93.242 W

She picks the first set of numbers before leaving w/ $1,700. His envelope had...the WIN card.

Coming out of The Mob next are Charles (who's wearing a stephoscope) & Patricia (who's wearing a green/white football jersey); their opening bank's $600 as they're offered the Red & Green Small Boxes plus the Big Box. All of the boxes cost $300.

RED: Charles- ASUS laptop ($1,430)
GREEN: NOBODY- Tag Heuer men's watch ($2K)
BB: Patricia- Giant three-piece chess set


THE BIG RISK (Curtain #1): Patricia- Pier 1 Imports living room w/ service from The Maids ($6,053)

Issac's an identical twin w/ Isaiah (who are both wearing purple overalls); they're controlling this deal's $2K. They first run into Racquel (who's wearing sunglasses). She declines 1/4 of their cash bank, so she's getting what's inside the small box (Jonathan)...a $1,220 luxury salon makeover. Representing the Cleveland Browns as a fan next is Valerie. She's tempted w/ $600 & $800 of the twins' current haul, but she opts for Curtain #2...inside is a small kitchen valued at $2,129. Now w/ the twin boys on their own, they see Tiffany come out w/ a thank-you gift, but they opt to split the two G's...neither one of them will be riding on the Yamaha V-Star Classic Cruiser.

Facing the Mystery Money Board is Tynesha (who's wearing a red graduation suit). The base setup:

( ? 1 ? 3 )

She switches the board & refuses the BB's last contents of the day...things for a game room totalling $4,896 (but she doesn't play video games anyway). She's actually put in her pocket:

( $ 0 3 2 1)

THE BIG DEAL: Patricia's playing for a $27,830 Big Deal of the Day, which includes a minimum of one vacation. She picks Door #3. As for Door #2, there was a Yamaha snowmobile priced at $8,935. We then open her door, whether she likes it or not...BUT IT'S THE BD! She's flying to both Belize & Istanbul, Turkey! Left behind at #1 was the Panasonic 58" plasma HDTV ($2,296).

WoF: We're on the same set where Hillary Light won the $100,000 late last year, meaning the Honda's available for tonight's bonus round.

We've got a long way to go before that happens, though. The category of the $1K Toss-Up is On the Map:

_ T _ _ _ _ A

_ _ _ _ G _ A

"Wheel" visited this city in 1996 to commemorate the Summer Olympics being held there; Russ knows it's ATLANTA, GEORGIA. Tuesday's trio looks like this:

Russ Ferre (Spring Grove, IL)- A project manager married to Lauren for two decades who has driven through 47 of the 48 contiguous U.S. states via car (the one they didn't make it to was North Dakota)
Dulce Reynolds (L.A.)- Married boutique cruise line worker
Jackie Manatt (Marlton, NJ)- A debit card fraud investigator for a bank who has visited at least 25 countries & has wanted to do something memorable in each one of them

The $2K TU deals w/ a Thing:

N A T I O _ A L

_ _ _ A S _ R _

Also the title of a Disney movie series, it's NOT "NATIONAL TREASURY" according to Russ; Jackie steals "NATIONAL TREASURE" to spin the wheel first.

After we put on it a $7K trip to the Emily Morgan Hotel in San Antonio (home of the red-hot NBA Spurs, who aren't that popular by TV rating standards), the Capzasin Jackpot Round category's Occupation; there's a gift tag from The Cheesecake Factory up for grabs, as well. While in the lead-off position, she calls three R's for $1,500 & buys five E's; at this point, I can tell you if Ken Jennings' watching this episode right now, he'll get a kick out of this puzzle. Back to Jackie, she next calls two N's for another grand, buys an I, calls two Free Play O's & a $300 G & purchases an A before calling D for dud while on Jackpot; she might've just missed out on at least $9,350 (because $7,300's currently in the pot at this stage of the round). Secondly, Russ calls two T's for $1,200 but then hits the Bankrupt next to $2.5K. Third, Dulce calls for a $500 M, a $300 C, a P for the Texas trip & a $500 S & we have...

C O M P _ T E R

S O _ T _ A R E

E N G I N E E R

...she isn't a COMPUTER SOFTWARE ENGINEER, but she now has $8,300 in cash & San Antonio.

SOLE DUD OF THE ROUND: $500 D (Jackie)
SOLE BANKRUPT OF THE ROUND: Russ
FINAL UNCLAIMED JACKPOT VALUE: $9,200

But she could lose her lead quickly in this next round, because it's the Prize Puzzle Round; topic's Phrase. Russ first gets the Wild Card by calling four T's, then he lights up two N's for $700, buys an E & two O's & inserts three G's for another $2,400 & purchases two I's prior to putting up two S's for another six bills, two R's for an extra $1,600, the same number of Y's to add $900 & the board now...

T _ I N G S / _ R E

S T _ R T I N G / T O

G O / _ Y / _ _ Y

...once again, he can say "THINGS ARE STARTING TO GO MY WAY", because he's back in first place w/ another $5,450 & a vacation at the LaSource in Grenada worth $6,468, giving him a new total of $12,918 in cash & trip.

PERFECT ROUND

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: EB01120 (Eunice B. from Iowa)

Dulce goes first in the Meineke Mystery/Before & After Round, as she calls a $400 R but then spins Lose a Turn. Second, Jackie calls two S's for seven grand, buys two O's & an E & lights three F's to add $1,650 to her current stash, followed by a dud vowel of A. Russ then gets the next bit of bad news- he loses his WC to the other normal Bankrupt. Third, Dulce calls two N's while on the Mystery Wedge in between FP & LaT & risks her $400...$10K! After calling a couple L's while on the other MW for another $2K, she buys trip I's to clean out the vowels & calls a $600 G, a $3.5K H, a $300 Y, two M's for $600 more & she rings in...

F L Y -

F I S H I N G / F O R

_ O M _ L I M E N _ S

...she's successful at FLY-FISHING FOR COMPLIMENTS (& more money) to the tune of $17,150, meaning she's back in front w/ $25,450 in cash & Texas!

SOLE DUD: A (Jackie)
SOLE LaT: Dulce
SOLE BANKRUPT: Russ

Place is the identity of the $3K TU:

S _ _ _ _ L

_ U _ I _ _ R _ U M

Dulce nails SCHOOL AUDITORIUM to move up to $28,450.

Same Letter will be this evening's Last Chance Round subject & consonants are worth...the big one of $6K! After the SL of three T's is called...

T _ R _ _ _ _

T _ _ _ _ / & / T _ _ N

...he's been THROUGH THICK & THIN, but Russ comes out on top w/ $24K extra to call his own & $36,918 in cash & Grenada! Dulce still goes home a pretty good winner w/ $28,450 in cash & San Antonio & Jackie leaves w/ the $2K in TU cash.

$67,368 in cash & vacations was won upfront tonight!

DUDS: L (Jackie), M (Dulce), S (Jackie)

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding WC): $1,200

Big Money Round: I hope Russ won't need that lost WC now. He spins up the N in WIN & his given prompt here's Thing. The help from RSTLNE:

_ _ _ - T _

_ _ _ _ E

He calls D, G, P & O and gets...

_ O _ - T O

G _ _ D E

...but he STILL DOESN'T get either the first or last incomplete words. Which means he won't be getting the HOW-TO GUIDE book of handling...


































































































































































...$100K- HE'S THE FIRST SUCH LOSER SINCE AROUND MID-JANUARY. He still leaves w/ $36,918 in cash & travel.
