IHOP Jackpot Round: Fictional Characters
Cathy calls three S's for an instant $1.5K & the blue 1/2 KIA & two R's for another $900, then she buys two E's, calls on two T's for another 11 Benjamins, buys an A & puts in two $300 L's before buying a dud vowel in I. Second, Jaquelin calls the two C's for the Hawaii wedge, the $350 K & the $450 M prior to buying the six O's to wipe out the vowels & taking the two $300 H's, but then comes the Bankrupt next to $2.5K to let $6,680 in cash & holiday go up in smoke. Tannen then has a chance at the $1K steal...

PMCO add just a vowel on the bottom...
_ _ _ E

J!: Patrick Morrison goes for four wins tonight against:
Annette Todd (Riverside, CA)- Marketing director
David Gard (Jamaica Plain, MA)- Retail horticulturalist
Friday's First Six:
2 BY 2 (each correct response's a pop duo)
David doesn't need a telescope to find the Daily Double in five clues under the middle Astronomy screen. While Patrick's started w/ $200, David risks his whole $1K on the following:
The two shortest-named constellations each have three letters; Ara & this one in the Zodiac.
"What is Leo?"...he has two. As a matter of fact, he's got four at halftime; Patrick's at $2,400 & Annette's on the board w/ $200.
SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $600 (2 By 2)
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $1,600
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $2,200

THE POST MAN'S HERE ("post" is underlined)
I GOT 3 LETTERS!
After an incorrect response reversal on an $800 clue earlier, David's score's upped to $11,400 just as he's about to attempt his second DD of the night behind the $1,600 Antonymic Pair; Patrick's still within reach w/ $7,600 & Annette has half the champ's second-place score. David will wager $2,600 on this one:
Scientific American has a feature that presents a common belief & asks this alliterative question.
"What is Fact or Fiction?"...that's true to get him to the $14K mark! But while he's on a roll, Patrick takes the other DD attached to the $1,600 The Post Man's Here answer & is leading David $14,800-$14K; Annette's back to where she started this DJ! Round, $3K. To retain his lead & add $2,200:
Stuart Whatley's managing blog editor for this post.
"What is...The Denver Post?"...back to second the champ goes; it was The Huffington Post.
ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,400
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $10,400
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $12,800
Totals Following Both Rounds:
FINAL J! CATEGORY: Book Villains.
The first time we meet this man in a 1981 novel, he's in his cell holding "Le Grand Dictionnaire de Cuisine".
Response: "Who is Hanibal _______"
Final score: $2
Patrick Morrison had "Who is Hannibal Lecter?", which is the complete correct name to add $8K & prop him up to $22,600...but he's leaving at least for now w/ $82,701, because David Gard's the new titleholder w/ $29,300.
Conclusion of Mark Lingenfelter's Game
$1K Question Game
(Also on "Let's Make a Deal" today: There was nowhere near as much luck as yesterday, as Ellyn lost a $3,250 Yamaha scooter to the $1,995 Crosley jukebox package behind Door #3 in the Big Deal Round. The BD worth $23,685 was behind Door #1 & it consisted of the red $15,320 Nissan Versa SV & a trip to the Tanque Verde Ranch.)
