LMaD: This morning's Big Deal of the Day's worth $23,490, so the Chevrolet Equinox could play a part in giving away the $50K suitcase (remember, "$ale of the Century" was best known for that).

But we're going to give Kimberly (a leadership training & consulting company worker dressed as Santa whose boyfriend Scott broke up w/ her recently) a chance to win up to a car right now playing Find the Face.

Adam's Round (dressed as a Mexican Scotsman): CURTAIN #2 ($1K)- KEMCO scooter

RESULTS- WINS TRUCK & $750 (Southeast & South cups; the $250 cup landing came at the buzzer)

He got the truck in just nine of the 20 seconds!

(Notes: Even if you win the automobile before time expires, you can still keep throwing balls for the money. Also, Wayne forgot that he landed the $500 cup in three sec. & an instant replay of that was shown just before the next deal.)

Patricia's Fast Deal Decision (dressed as a fried egg): CURTAIN #2- A chariot w/ a gorilla on top of it 
SILVER ENVELOPE (X10): $310 ($3,100)

#2- Trip to theReef ($6,306)

(Note: There was no pan of the three doors just before her final selection.)

While wearing a sombrero, Sean shows Jonathan a credit card w/ a 1-800 number on it for $100, Yontiguah (dressed as a pageant girl) can't find a nail file to have Tiffany pay her $100 & Kailen digs up 47 cents from her purse in time to win Wayne's $200.

Remember, "Wheel" starts shooting in Portland tomorrow!

J!: No joke- Beau Henson's a two-time champ on this program (he's an actor originally from Mt. Carmel, IL). But challenging him are two more guys:

Richie Rodriguez (Haywood, CA)- Mechanical engineer
Jay Ben Markson (originally from Lakeville, MA)- Also an actor

For real, here are Thursday's first six:

THE MARQUIS DE SADE
FACTS & FIGURES
PLACES TO EAT
RUNNING ON "N.T."
THE FIRST EPISODE
WHERE ON EARTH...?

Jay Ben correctly answers Where on Earth is the Video Daily Double? Under its $600 clue & he has $2,200; Richie has the six bills. He's going for the $4,400 doubler:

The Tower of the Great Opening Hotel's in Khartoum in this country.

"What is Sudan?"...Khartoum's indeed its capital for the $4,400! He's added half that score to that once we reach the first break, while Richie's gotten to the $1K mark; however, Beau's $400 in the hole.

SOLE TS OF THE ROUND (attempted): $600 (N.T.)

Post-J! Round Scores:

Beau: $3,400
Jay Ben: $9,200 (Lock Game Territory Alert)
Richie: $3,200

Double J! Topics:

THE MARQUEE DE SAD
THEY CAME FROM OHIO
CULTURE CLUB
14-, 15- & 16-LETTER WORDS
PHILOSOPHICAL METAPHORS
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE

Richie's road to getting rich has reached a crucial point- him finding a DD w/ $8K attached to the $1,600 Philosophical Metaphor during such a spree. He's $600 behind Beau for second & is $2,400 out of the lead. For another five big ones & the lead, here's the clue for Richie:

In a work of political philosophy, hobbies compared "The great power of..." man's governor to this Biblical beast.

"What is the Behemoth?"...NO. It was The Leviathan & his bank's cut to $3K. Jay Ben's second & final DD this match comes from the middle spot under They Came From Ohio w/ about a minute left in this round of play & he's barely leading the champ, $13,600-$12,600; Richie's far behind them at $3,800. To move back in front w/ a $4K bet:

An elementary school in Lorain, OH is named for this woman from Lorain, who's both a Pulitzer & Nobel Prize winner.

"Who is Rachel Carson?"...heeeeeeeeeeere's bad news for Jay Ben- her name was Toni Morrison instead, meaning he has a $3K deficit between him & Beau.

FINAL J! SUBJECT: Space Exploration.

On March 17, 2011, a probe called Messenger became the first spacecraft to orbit this planet.

RR's response to that answer was "What is Neptune?"...BUSTED. Jay Ben Markson almost agreed w/ Richie, but he wrote "What is Mercury?"...Ford's now-defunct mid-luxury line name is GOOD FOR THE DOUBLER TO $23,200...but Beau Henson's won for the third time at $23,201! Three-day total: $51,202.
