LMaD: This episode has a Friday the 13th theme! The opening object is an umbrella w/ something inside (Tiffany). Allyson, who's celebrating her 10th wedding anniversary (James' the groom), trades it to Brian (who's wearing a purple/white outfit) for the Small Box (Jonathan)...sadly, it's a broken mirror collection w/ a seven-year warranty- she'll have to redeem it for $200. Brian secondly passes the Silver Envelope to Natalie (who's a singer/songwriter), then she buys this for $800...the $6,326 living room group! Finally, Brian's going big on Curtain #1. I can reveal to you now that either the umbrella or that curtain has the Hyundai Elantra...but he's WRONG, so he leaves w/ nothing but a trip through a bad luck obstacle course w/ the announcer/co-host (mostly ladders); the Hyundai itself was behind #2.

Playing The Dealing Game today's Heidi (who's wearing mostly green pajamas).

Questions:

1. If you picked your prize, would I be spending more time at home or away from home?
2. If you were going to post something online about your prize, what would I say?

The top prize here's the $10,892 Aruba trip. She's siding w/ the host on #3...PERFECT DEAL! Jonathan's #1 had the $6,032 BBQ/patio set.

Trader #5's Jackson (who's dressed like The Incredible Hulk). Out of a choice of the SB (Jonathan) or Curtain #2, he takes the curtain...the SB had the $2,078 Nikon digital camera package & a $50 bill, but he's gotten the Kawasaki jet ski- PERFECT DEAL #2!

Here's a Guillermo who's not related to the security guard on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", since he's wearing red, white & blue clothing & is a Marine; this is the first round of "Hollywood Squares". The SB allegedly has nine of a certain item & he Disagrees for $1K...Jonathan was truthfully saying there were nine lives for a hissing black cat. Amber (dressed as a nurse, I think) gets briefed by Jonathan that there's a SmartCar in the Big Box. Even though that's unlikely since we saw one at the start of this week, she Agrees by refusing $1K...she's incorrect, but in a decent way- she's going on a luxury spa day valued at $3,195. Mark (dressed as a Mexican) gets the final statement, which is a trip North's awaiting him via Curtain #1. He Disagrees at the $1.5K mark...but he forfeits the $7,300 Banff holiday.

Kyanti (dressed as a superhero) attempts to Pair a Dice for some dough &/or the KIA Forte (Curtain #3).

1. #8- DANGER ZONE ENFORCED ALREADY

Should he wipe out just like that, he'll get a $500 consolation prize.

2. #4- SIX
3. #2- FIVE
4. #7- FOUR
5. #1- SIX ($600)
6. #3- LOSE EVERYTHING

#5- FOUR
#6- FIVE

Now, for a fairly fast deal w/ Mary (dressed as a Broadway character). At a price of $900, this is what she buys courtesy of the BB...a small home theater worth $3,129. But she gives it right back for Curtain #2 because of a strong feeling...it's a bad one w/ the giant salt shaker.

THE BIG DEAL: After Heidi decides to fly to Aruba, Jackson goes for the last Big Deal of the week worth $27,195. He's sticking w/ Door #2...EVERYTHING IN THIS BD's HIS- a variety of kitchen appliances ($2,545)(Door #3), an Aspen skiing package ($8,400)(Door #1) & the Nissan cube ($16,250)!

Final overall total for the day: $50,308!

Kelly Sanama (Larose, LA)- University of New Orleans sophomore majoring in Psychology
Michelle Tuminella (Baton Rouge)- University of Louisiana-Lafayette junior majoring in Finance/Tri-Sigma member

Candace's not PLAYING KICKBALL, but she now has $3K.

Eggland's Best Jackpot Round topic's What Are You Doing? & the last featured trip of the week w/ a price tag of $6,075 could take a collegian to Costa Rica; we'd like to thank gapadventures.com for providing these college trips. She first calls a $900 G, an I while on Free Play & three N's for a doubler, then she calls three D's while on Jackpot for another $1.5K, buys three A's, inserts three M's for an extra $2,700 & we have...

A _ _ I N G

M _ M / A N D / D A D

_ _ _ / M _ N _ _

...she won't be ASKING MOM AND DAD FOR MONEY, cause she just won another $5,750 on her own for a new such sum of $8,750.

PERFECT ROUND
FINAL UNCLAIMED JACKPOT THIS WEEK: $8,100

Prize Puzzle Round category's Show Biz. First in line is Kelly, who gets the Lose a Turn right out of the gate. Second, Michelle calls for a $600 D but then hits the Million Dollar Wedge's right-side Bankrupt. Third, Candace barely avoids the natural Bankrupt in between $600 & $900 but calls a dud anyway of N. On Kelly's second turn, he calls two L's for $1,200, purchases an E & A but then calls a dud in F. Michelle next lights up a $1,200 pair of M's & a $400 C, buys the quadruple O's & calls the $900 G before we get...

_ O L L _ _ O O D

M O _ _ E / M A G _ C

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: TW8376121 (Teresa W. from Washington)

This week's Mystery Rounds are closed out by a Same Name. Still in command of that giant thing, Michelle leads off w/ a negative of T while on that MDW. Second, Candace Bankrupts out in between $600 & $900 this time. Third, Kelly calls a $500 L & an $800 S, buys a couple A's, inserts an obvious $600 N & a $900 D & purchases a bad vowel of I. Back to Michelle, she FPs the two E's, calls a $450 R, $600 C & the H for the Regal gift card & purchases trip O's to finish out the vowels, followed by a $1,200 G pairing but then the other regular Bankrupt burns up three grand in cash & gift tag; that's her second one tonight. After a dud of P from Candace, Kelly Bankrupts in the same position as the next player in line did to lose $2,300. Once we're referring to Michelle again, she loses another turn w/ the M. Afterwards, Candace finally has the B lit while on FP...

G O O G L E / A N D

S E A R C H

...& it may be a while before she goes on another GOOGLE AND JOB SEARCH, but she's inched up to $9,750.

DUDS: I (Kelly), $300 M (Michelle), $400 P (Candace), T (Michelle)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (Everybody)

This Person TU's a one-wordy:

T R O U _ _ E M A _ E R

I'm not sure when's the last time Candace's been a TROUBLEMAKER in her life (if ever), but I do know she's boosted to $12,750 & swept the TUs.

Title's the theme of this Last Chance Round & $1,600 is the payout per consonant appearance. After she calls the G's late...

N _ T I _ N _ L

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH: $5,900 in cash & movie theater stuff

Maxwell House Big Money Round: Will we give away a third straight MINI Cooper Countryman? Will something worth more than $30K be won in this endgame if at all?

We're about to find out the answers to those Q's as Candace Scott spins out the A in GAME for the second straight episode. The category's Things & this very-long one-liner begins w/:

_ _ _ L _ _ _ _ _ T _ _ N S

DPCI add to the puzzleboard...

...we just DIDN'T have the QUALIFICATIONS for a PBRW to occur, as the QU claims another victim. She's the sole $30K loser of the week & leaves w/ $20,750.
