5/31/2011 Results

LMaD: Why is this episode so special? Because not only is this the other episode this season w/ Rachel filling in for Tiffany, EVERY SINGLE DEAL this morning will have at least one car involved!!! So the daily winnings record's in jeopardy!

Latonya (dressed as a nurse) & Lizzette (dressed as a 25-cent balloon bag) are playing That's Enough for the Toyota Yaris Sedan.

Curtain Choices:

Latonya: #3
Lizzette: #2

OFFERS: $300, $500, $700, $800, $1K, $1,200, $1,300, $1,400, $1,600, $2K, $2,200, $2.5K- TE FOR LATONYA (upon review)

Because of getting beat out on the buzzer at the last second, Lizzette...has her new car dreams eaten up by that car shark, but Wayne gives her a $500 consolation prize.

While dressed as a superhero, Uri's mission in Pair a Dice is to phase out both ZONKS in order to win the Mazda3 Sedan (Curtain #1) & $1.5K in gas money.

1. #8: FIVE
2. #5: FOUR
3. #2: FOUR ($400)
4. #3: SIX
5. #7 (he's listening to a cowgirl named Sarah for at least this next pick): FIVE ($900)
6. #1: SIX- PERFECT DEAL!

Rebecca has the choice of either a bankroll w/ a $50 bill on the outside or the Silver Envelope. She takes the SE...there were a total of 16 $50s in that bankroll. Second, she gives that right back for the Red Box...left in the SE was 500 Donkey Dollars! Third, she rejects the Blue Box...which held a white gold diamond ring valued at $3,282. Fourth, she also declines Curtain #3, which had this gift w/ wheels...a Honda SH-155 motorscooter w/ a price tag of $4,499. That means that Rebecca does have some kind of a car in at least her RB. After being offered the bankroll once again, she's kept this for good...the Hyundai Elantra (Curtain #1)- PERFECT DEAL #2!

(Note: On the Hyundai Elantra card, a picture of the 2011 Elantra Sedan was shown instead of last year's.)

Matthew (dressed as a picnic person) is playing a round of Rap Me a Deal w/ Curtain #3; his 30th birthday happened on the Friday during the week this episode was filmed. The other choice for him is #2, but he keeps #3...he should've listened to his gut of #2, because he gets carpooled. That will cost him the Elantra (Curtain #1) plus a trip to Vermont w/ some equipment, $22,547 total.

In cash neither one of these ladies want an automobile, they might want some money in the Pinatas Deal- Ashley & Stacy (who's wearing a pink hat & boa).

PINATAS:

Ashley: #2
Stacy: #3

Ashley's Round: Pinata #2 or SE?
PICK: PINATA #2- ZONK
SE: Luxury Spa Day ($2,820)

STACY'S PICK: #3- ZONK
#1- Ford Fiesta S (Curtain #1)

The grapes couple of Bryce (green) & Kathleen (purple) are playing Three of a Kind for the Civic LX Sedan (Curtain #2). They go for the even-numbered cards.

1. #6- QUEEN OF DIAMONDS
2. #2- QUEEN OF HEARTS

I think they need to stop this game w/ a home office worth $4,176 (Big Box) & $400...but they don't.

FINAL CARD: #4- 4 OF DIAMONDS

#1- 4 OF CLUBS
#3- 4 OF HEARTS
#5- QUEEN OF CLUBS

THE BIG DEAL: The final car at stake's the Volkswagen Tiguan w/ a portable DVD player being thrown in & Latonya's purchasing Door #3 w/ her $2.5K thanks to her friends...& SHE'S THE THIRD & FINAL AUTOMOBILE WINNER OF THE DAY!

#1- Bedroom ($6,995)
#2- Stainless-steel gas range & dishwasher ($2,548)

NO record today, but we still gave away a total in cash & cars of $58,820!

TPiR: Obviously, they aren't in the same mood as "Deal", but at least one of today's First Four Pricers could drive away in a new ride- Kayla Cameron, Theiler DePalma, Suddana Bobatoon & Espree Devora. The first IUFB happens to be the "Price Look of the Week"- a Beach Chic attire provided by Guess by Marciano & worn by Manuela.

Kayla: $602/JUSTINE: $600/Espree: $601/Sudana: $900

Sandra: $680/Justine: $681/TRINA: $475/Sudana: $500

ARP: $671- Sudana has defied the odds!

J!: Matt Larson's Tuesday challengers:

Jennifer Najarian (Coplay, PA)- A bookseller who's a "Star Trek" fan along w/ her mom
Ty Cone (Brooklyn)- Federal law clerk

(Note: Johnny got tickled just as he reads Matt's current winnings.)

Here come some categories:

THE HUMAN BODY
BEATLES LAST LINES
YES, WE HAVE NO ARMY
YOU'VE GONE BANKRUPT
SUMMER SCHOOL AT YALE
ANIMAL ANAGRAMS

Matt's leading Ty $4,600-$2,400 halfway in the round; Jennifer has half of Ty's early score ($1,200). But Jennifer finds the Daily Double three clues into The Human Body & wagers $1,600 of her $1,800 on this clue:

Appropriately, part of this organ's name is an Archaic term for "bile".

"What is the gallbladder?"...that's the one to move her into second place w/ $3,400. Even w/ another C-note, though, she'll make the first pick in Double Jeopardy! w/ $4,400; Matt's in the middle w/ $5,200 & Ty has a $1,200 lead over the champ at $6,400.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS OF THE ROUND: $600 (You've Gone Bankrupt)
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS OF THE ROUND: $800 (Animal Anagrams)
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $1,400

DJ! Board:

THE INCAS (Clue Crew clues from Peru)
MICHAEL DOUGLAS MOVIE ROLES
ON THE LABEL
PLAY MATES
THEODORE ROOSEVELT
"BULL"-Y!

On the fifth clue of this round, Jennifer digs up her second DD of this episode from the middle Theodore Roosevelt clue w/ $5,600 & trailing Ty for first by $2K; Matt's currently third w/ $5,200. She makes this clue worth another C-note to her if she says the right response:

Having reconciled w/ Teddy only a short time before, this ex-President attended TR's funeral.

"Who is FDR?"...it wasn't him; Taft was the right guy, so she dips to third by $600 ($4,600). Ty has his hands on Tuesday's last DD attached to the $2K Play Mates answer; he's closer to Lock Game Territory w/ $16,400, followed by the champ w/ $10K & Jennifer w/ seven. He takes the face value route w/ this:

Captain Keller & his wife Kate think that Annie's methods are too harsh for their daughter in this drama.

"What is 'The Miracle Worker'?"...is correct for $18,400!

DJ! LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $6,800

Heading into the Final (these are also tonight's Coryat Scores):

Matt: $11,200
Ty: $19,200
Jennifer: $9,800

FINAL JEOPARDY! SUBJECT: Ancient Writings.

In 170 A.D., Melito of Sardis compiled a list of religious works to be included in this, a two-word term he coined.

Jennifer Najarian's final query was "What is The Old Testament?"...what do you know, that's right! But she only gambled $5K, so it's doubtful she'll be the new titleholder w/ $14,800. Matt Larson...is definitely gone w/ "What is the Annals" & BUSTS OUT w/ a final total of $6,599. Ty Cone...nearly put down "What is the New Testament", but scratched off the "New" for the "Old", so he's definitely won it w/ $22,405!
