F I _ _ _ _ S

C E _ T E R

Brent solves FITNESS CENTER, so the interviews of the evening are going down the line:

Brent Bull (Goleta, CA)- An engineer married to Lisa
Bethany DeSautel (Fargo, ND)- A personal banker who just completed her first half-marathon
Rebecca Fox (Metarie, LA)- Co-founder of a company that buys & sells abandoned/repossessed storage lockers; she also writes about that on a blog

The $2K TU comes from the world of Fictional Characters:

_ _ _ T _ _ / _ R _ E N

_ _ N

Rebecca blanks out.

L _ _ T _ E / _ R _ E N

_ _ N

Brent catches those LITTLE GREEN MEN to triple to three C-notes.

The last spafinder.com getaway's to the Green Valley Spa & Resort in Utah w/ an $8K value; for the IHOP Jackpot Round tonight, some Things are required. He hits a dud of T right away. Secondly, Bethany calls four T's for $2K & a 1/2 Car plate, two H's for the trip & buys four E's prior to dudding out on the Jackpot w/ R. Third, Rebecca calls for two S's at $300 a pop & buys two A's, then she gets two C's for another $1,200, a $300 P, a $450 D & a $550 L before we have this revealed...

N _ _ S E -

C A N C E L _ N _

H E A D P H _ N E S

...these come in handy in case any GS host encounters a crazy contestant, NOISE-CANCELING HEADPHONES; she solves this board for $2,850.

DUDS: $500 R (Bethany), $600 T (Brent)
FINAL UNCLAIMED JACKPOT OF THE WEEK: $8,800

If we ever get to her in this round of play, she'll go second in this Same Letter Round after Bethany gets the first shot. Bethany's opening letter is a negative of T, which means we get to Rebecca right away w/ an $800 N, three I's, three G's to add $1,650 & an E, then comes a dud of R. Third, Brent picks off the SL of six B's for $1,800, then a $1K couple of L's & we've got...

B L _ _ I N G

B I G / B I G

B _ B B L E _

...he's BLOWING BIG, BIG BUBBLES to make his new leading score $5,800.

DUDS: $300 R (Rebecca), $550 T (Bethany)

The week's last Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round topic's gonna be What Are You Doing? Rebecca leads off from the end of the panel w/ a $300 N, two I's, two G's for nine more bills & three A's, then she calls out three R's while on the Mystery Wedge w/ the Million Dollar Wedge next to it. She takes the $3K buyout (good, because she would've gone Bankrupt), buys the last vowel of E & lights up a $600 W & T...

W E A R I N G / A

G R A _ _ / _ _ I R T

...& banks another $4,650, gains the lead & will be WEARING A GRASS SKIRT at the JW Marriott Ihilani Ko'Olina Resort in Hawaii priced at $6,410, for a new total of $13,910 in cash & trip.

PERFECT ROUND

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: MA02508 (Mary A. from Michigan)

People's the $3K TU identity:

_ _ P _ _

C _ M P _ _ S

Rebecca's one of those HAPPY CAMPERS after improving to $16,910 in cash & Aloha State.

Next up's a Phrase, but a dud of T immediately follows. Second, Brent puts up a $1,200 R quartet & buys two E's & three A's before Losing a Turn. Third for Bethany is another baddie of H. Fourth, Rebecca calls off a $300 L but then D for dud. Brent next collects a $600 N pair & the same amount of B's to add a C-note to his bank for the round...

A / R E A L

B A R N / B _ R N E R

...this match might not necessarily be A REAL BARN BURNER, but he's slowly getting there w/ 2,300 more bucks for $8,100 total & he'll start the next puzzle.

DUDS: $500 D (Rebecca), $300 H (Bethany), $300 T (Rebecca)
SOLE LaT: Brent

The realm of Show Biz's coming into play, w/ him putting up first a $550 S, two R's for $800 extra & making the purchase of quad E's, which are followed by a dud of M before it's Last Chance Round time...

E _ _ _ R E

_ R E S E _ _ _ _ _ _ _

...& the rest of the consonants are worth $1,300. Following three N's called by Rebecca...

E N _ _ R E

_ R E S E N T _ T _ _ N

...an ENCORE PRESENTATION of her decent puzzle-solving may be on the way, as she's iced her cake by $3,900, for a title-winning cash/vacation total of $20,810! Brent's $8,100 wealthier & Bethany has the $1K gooseegg prize.

SOLE DUD (prior to final bell): $400 M (Brent)

NO BANKRUPT TRASH TONIGHT

Maxwell House Big Money Round #8: In her hunt for a lot more dough, this Fox has spun up the E in AMERICA'S & coming out of the puzzle chute last's a Place. Here's the last letter of it:

_ _ _ _ _

_ _ _ E

Her combo's CPMA...

C _ M _ _

_ _ M E

...she needed the O's, because it was COMFY HOME & she loses $30K, meaning she leaves w/ $20,810 in cash & travel.

Pat's Full Credit Roll Credit: Swedish Massage Specialist

J!: I hope that big win from Chris Fleitas last night's a sign of things to come in the future. But these people want to stop that from happening immediately:

Donna Laux (New Braunfels, TX)- A marketing director who first worked as a newspaper girl at nine years old
Rob Landolel (Washington, D.C.)- Environmental protection specialist/former Peace Corps member

Friday's First Six:

BLU-RAYS
WHO MAKES IT?
ADD A LETTER
LANDMARKS
SURPRISE PARTY
"Prohibition" (Ken Burns' newest PBS documentary, which will start this Sunday)

Like the previous game, Chris' going Daily Double Hunting almost immediately...& five clues into Round 1, he nabs one from the $800 Landmark clue! The early lead's his w/ $1,400 to Donna's $600, while Rob's at -$600. He's making it a True DD:

This national memorial includes a 16-inch mole & a mustache that's 20 ft. wide.

"What is Mt. Rushmore?"...double to $2,800! He's nearly re-doubled to $5,400 at halftime while in Lock Game Territory; Rob's $1,400 on the good side & Donna's just $400 out of second place.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $600 (Blu-Rays)
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS: $800 (Who Makes It?)
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $1,400

Scores Following Opening Round (no time for $200 Blu-Ray or either the $200 & $400 Who Makes It? clues):

Double Jeopardy! Listings:

BLUE RAYS
"G" WHAT A COUNTRY
LITERATURE
EXPLOSIVE MUSIC
RHETORICALLY SPEAKING
THE U.S. COAST GUARD

After Rob says the right response on the opener in Literature, he runs into a DD behind its second clue & we have our second TDD attempt tonight:

Chapters in this James Bond novel include "Gem Quality" & "Hot Ice".

"What are 'Diamonds Are Forever'?"...that's sensible enough for the $7,600 doubler! And he has both of the DDs in the round after taking the second one from the $800 Blue Rays answer w/ $11,200; Chris still has a reasonable lead w/ $20,800 & Donna's a distant last w/ $4,800. On this answer, he's risking...$10,800:

The blue light in the pools of water in this power facilities is called Cerenkov Radiation.

"What are nuclear power plants?"...HE GOT 'EM for first at $22K!

DJ! LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $4,800

Heading Into the Final:

Chris: $28,800 (second Norma Brown Jackpot appearance on the day)
Rob: $22K
Donna: $6,400- MATHEMATICALLY ELIMINATED

CORYAT SCORES:

Chris: $28,200

DONNA:
Response: "What are diving?"
Wager: $5K
Final score: $1,400

Rob Landolel said "What is archery?"...NO, costing him $8,400, but he's still got a fighting chance w/ $13,600. Chris Fleitas' response was "What is Dressage?". He could've said sailing & he did risk $15,201, so if dressage isn't the other one, he's lost his crown by a buck...


















































































































































































































































...BUT HE'S SET A NEW SEASON-HIGH OF $44,001 TONIGHT!!!! He's got $82,901 after just two appearances!

B O D Y

L _ _ _ _ N

Tim puts on some BODY LOTION to strike first blood. For the second time this week, here's a panel w/ two men:

Tim Barley (Hermosa Beach, CA)- Freelancing TV/screenwriter
Debbie Barkholtz (Neenah, WI)- A part-time model involved in community theater who's been married to Scott for 35 years
Kyle Jones (Burbank; originally from Kailua, HI)- Another TV writer who wrote & directed a short zombie film

$2K TU topic's Phrase:

_ I L _ - G O O _ E

_ _ A _ _

$25K was won off this previous bonus puzzle in May '05 back in Kansas City, whereas Debbie wins this WILD-GOOSE CHASE for $23K less than that.

The spa place somebody could fly to after this episode's the Putacana Resort & Club in the Dominican Republic & it's a $6.5K trip. After the category of this IHOP Jackpot Round's shown to be another new one, Movie Quote, Debbie calls two T's for that Wild Card & two H's for $1,200, buys three E's & an I, calls for a $900 W & purchases two O's before Bankrupting next to $2.5K to hand back the WC & $1,350. Secondly, Kyle calls an $800 M but gets the same fate as Debbie. Third, Tim puts up a $500 B & R & we have...

M _ _ / T H E / _ O R _ E

B E / W I T H / _ O _

...he recognizes the "Star Wars" line "MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU" to tie for the early lead.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (Debbie, Kyle)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $8,300

As a Before & After Round gets into gear, Kyle calls a $300 R & two T's for another $1,100, buys two E's, picks up two S's for an extra six bills but then loses his turn w/ G. Second, Tim calls a $450 D & two N's for another $600, buys two A's & I's, puts up a $300 M & buys the O's to close the vowels department, but he then Bankrupts the same way the rest of tonight's group did to forfeit $600. Following that, Debbie gets a $900 L & a $300 F...

F A S _ I O N

M O D E L

T R A I N / S E T

...& takes an outright $1,200 lead w/ FASHION MODEL TRAIN SET.

SOLE DUD: $800 G (Kyle)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Tim

This Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round likely will tell the final result of this match; category's Headline. Tim's first stop is that same winnings-pickin' Bankrupt; that's his second of the night. Second, Debbie calls out three S's for $900, a $300 T & buys five E's & four A's, followed by two H's for the SpaWish gift tag but then the only dud vowel of I. Third for Kyle are a $600 pair of N's but then the other normal Bankrupt; both men have two apiece. Next down Tim's alley are a Free Play O & an L while on the Mystery Wedge in between FP & Lose a Turn. He turns it over...for the 10 grand! Then comes the LaT, though. After Debbie gets four D's for the Million Dollar Wedge, we have...

_ A N A D A

_ E L _ O _ E S

T H E / D _ _ E

A N D / D _ _ H E S S

...she reads "CANADA WELCOMES THE DUKE AND DUCHESS" for another $1,450 in cash & gift certificate & the $6K Caravan.com Canadian Rockies Tour, for total winnings of $10,650.

SOLE DUD: I (Debbie)
SOLE LaT: Tim
BANKRUPTS: 2 (guys)

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: EM4884297 (Eric M. from Oklahoma)

For the $3K TU, it's identity is a Person & it's a one-liner:

F R O N _ - R _ N _ E R

Kyle's not the FRONT-RUNNER in this game, but he's $3K richer & on the board.

As an Around the House puzzle's revealed, he first puts in a $500 R, two E's, two H's to add $1,600 & an A, followed by quad T's for $2K additional, an I, but then the same Bankrupt hit three times before to toss aside $3,350; that's his third one tonight. Second for Tim are a $500 W & the Last Chance Mode signal...

W H I T E / _ _ T T _ _

_ A T H R _ _ E

...w/ the remaining three consonants valued at $1,300 apiece. After his next consonant call of C...

W H I T E / C _ T T _ _

_ A T H R _ _ E

...he turns in a WHITE COTTON BATHROBE for an additional $1,800 & a final second-place score of $3,800. Kyle has the $3K in TU dough & Debbie's the second player this week to win a match w/ that MDW in hand w/ $10,650 in cash & prizes!

However, a SEASON-LOW of $17,450 has been recorded in this evening's upfront game.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Kyle

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding WC): $6,700

MAXWELL HOUSE MILLION DOLLAR BONUS ROUND #2: This is the third time ever we've had two of these take place in a single week! Debbie's crucial Bonus Wheel spin ends on the E in GAME & Thursday night's endgame category's Thing. She gets 1/5 of this puzzle right away:

R _ _ _ _

_ _ T _ _

MYHI give her...

R _ _ _ H

_ _ T _ H

...she JUST MISSES IT w/ ROUGH CATCH & ROUGH WATCH. Now would definitely not be the time to have hit a ROUGH PATCH...
































































































































































































...actually, she loses the Miata. In any case, she's sent home w/ only $10,650 in cash & stuff.

MILLION DOLLAR LOCATION: S in AMERICA'S

Chris' again DDH...& this time, he picks off one from the middle "B" spot . With $7,800 t0 play w/, he's wagering $4K & his LGT position on this answer:

This children's classic's subtitled "A Life in the Woods".

He DRAWS A BLANK, so he's fallen to $3,800. Correct: "What was 'Bambi'?" But he does get the $1,600 & $2K clues in the same neck of the woods to jump back to $7,400. Later...the other DD's caught by him from the $1,600 Immediate Predecessors spot & he's much deeper in LGT w/ $19,400; he has a $17K lead over Lindsy & the champion's $600 in the red. Chris' bet this time's...$5K. Clue:

As commander of U.N. forces in Korea, he preceded Matthew B. Ridgway.

"Who is Douglas MacArthur?"...$24,400!

DJ! LACH TRASH (all unattempted Blues Clues): $2K

After DJ!:

Sergio: $2,600
Lindsy: $4,400
Chris: $32,400 (LG!)

CORYAT SCORES:

Sergio: $2,600
Lindsy: $5,400
Chris: $33K

FINAL JEOPARDY! SUBJECT: The 20th Century.

In February 1967, this Asian leader said his people would "...never agree to negotiate under the threat of bombing".

Everybody's right w/ "Who is Ho Chi Minh?"...

Sergio: $600 = $3,200
Lindsy: $4K = $8,400
Chris: $6.5K = $38,900

...& Chris' the champ in a very nice way! Sergio departs w/ $30,201.

(Note: The $1K & $2K consolation prizes are courtesy of ALEVE as of this week.)
