$22: Toaster
  
The bad news is that he gets penalized for not making enough changes, so that'll cost him...

$35: Hair dryer
$50: Blender
$22: Toaster- WIN

Sixth's Alyssa Rydberg & the third IUFB's the Paradigm home theater speaker system (Rachel at Door #5)(IUFB/truck cue variant).

ALYSSA: $1K/Gail: $500/Gregory: $525/Thuy: $1,025

Alyssa overbid by a dollar, so Gregory (an ad agency worker from West Hollywood, CA) plays the Balance Game for a La-Z-Boy Quinn sky blue living room group w/ the Panasonic 65" HDTV ("Young, Wild & Free" by Wiz Khalifa & Snoop Dogg feat. Bruno Mars)(Rachel at Door #3). Whether he wins or loses, he'll spin The Big Wheel first.

DOLLAR VALUES AVAILABLE: $2K, $3K & $5K
GUESS: $5,915- WIN!

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Gregory ($6,914): 15 + Dime = Quarter
Mary ($14,527): $.95
Matthew ($21,211): 70 + 55 = OVER BY A QUARTER

Orange occupant #2's Barbara Tirado & IUFB #4's 26 pieces of Zercoca cookware/tools (Amber behind splitting sign)("Love You Betta" by Neon Hitch).

Alyssa: $399/Gail: $551/BARBARA: $550/Thuy: $350 (STAGE GARF)

Barbara's $500 richer! And she plays Freeze Frame for, fittingly, a kitchen (Rachel at Door #3)("Set Fire to the Rain" by Adele). There are two real choices, IMHO- $4,854 & $5,479. Actually, she pulls the lever at $6,997...& wins! She also could've incorrectly guessed $2,169, $3,221, $7,986, $8,632 or $9,748.

The next winner might be named Gregory Gaer & the next IUFB will be pairs of Nikon digital cameras & 4 GB memory cards (ceiling)("Not Over You" by Gavin DeGraw).

Alyssa: $420/Gail: $426/GREGORY: $350/Thuy: $399

Gail wins the $518 electronics package by default & this Virginia volunteer plays Check-Out for The Maids service, groceries & Fandango tickets for a yr., all worth $8,151 (both at Door #3)("Fortune Hunter" variant by Edd).

Sugar: $1.49
Gloss: $.99
Mix: $3.29
Sunny D: $3.59

ACTUAL TOTAL: $12.35- WIN W/ $1.12 DIFFERENCE!

Samantha Christensen could be the one to complete a Perfect Show, but Thuy's in danger of going to the FF Breakfast Club. The last IUFB that will decide quite a bit is gonna be those eVOLUTION power tools (Rachel's the conductor).

Alyssa: $570/SAMANTHA: $1,250/Gregory: $556/Thuy: $600

Thuy has escaped & also wins the $500 wad! She's a Geometry student from Western University.

Now, it all comes down to any number, where she hopefully will win a Honda Accord LX Sedan (Std., Sensors, Mats)(Rachel at Door #2)(MDS theme by Karp). If not, maybe she'll at least get the Endurance 82u exercise bike (Amber)("Good Feeling" by Flo Rida).

1. 3- ACCORD S. ($ 2 _ , _ 3 _)
2. 4- Butt Bank ($ 4 . _ _)
3. 8- E. Bike ($ 8 _ _)
4. 2- ACCORD S. ($ 2 2 , _ 3 _)
5. 5- E. Bike ($ 8 _ 5)
6. 0- Butt Bank ($ 4 . _ 0)
7. 6- ACCORD S. ($ 2 2 , _ 3 6)

Does she pick the 9 last for a PERFECTO???...















































































































































































































...NO, SHE FALLS TWO SHORT. Darn. She'll have to settle for the $875 exerciser; the piggy bank thus had $4.10. If Honda hadn't increased the base prices on all of their cars back then, the result would've been much different.

SCSD #2:
Thuy ($1,975): $.85
Barbara ($8,047): 30 + 70 = WINS $1K & SHOWCASE BERTH
Gail ($8,669; she got a kidney transplant four yrs. ago): 95 + 75 = OVER

Barbara needs to win something in her Bonus Spin to be the Top Winner in the Showcase Round. It stops on...$.85.

S E T T I N G

T H E / R E _ _ R _

Mystery Round: Before & After

Cheryl's opening letters happen to be a $300 T at the end of the top line (out of four) & a dud of N while on the Mystery Wedge in between Free PLAY & Lose a Turn. Second, Jessica grabs the other MW after calling an S on the bottom...which has the $10K! Then come three R's for $1,800, two $3.5K L's, an O, quadruple E's, but she then gets stopped by the only dud vowel in the round (A). Chris claims two Y's for nine $100 bills, two P's to add six & a $300 M, but he then Bankrupts out next to top dollar to lose the 18 Benjamins. Cheryl then gets the green 1/2 KIA because of a $500 G & then...

J!:
  
Julie Zukowski (Crystal Lake, IL)- Public librarian
Ursula Rodgers (Denver)- Homemaker/visual artist
CHAMPION: Joel Pool (whose three-day cash winnings total $69,600)

Light up some categories, please:
SHAKESPEAREAN LINES
WE BAND OF BROTHERS
MY SALAD DAYS
ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE
2B OR NOT TO 2B (there are two words in each right response, one of which has two B's)
THE WINTER OF OUR DISCOUNT TENT

Ursula barely leads Julie $2,800-$2,600 at halftime, while Joel's sitting on $1,200. The Daily Double is NOT found; it was left underneath the $800 or $1K clue from All the World's a Stage. W/ that, Ursula has $6,400, Joel's got $3,400 & Julie's $4K behind Ursula.

LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $3K

Next Subject Menu:
50 YEARS AGO-- 1962
ANIMAL VERBS
OPERA CHARACTERS
ROMAN THE ROADS
"O", HOW ENTERTAINING
NEWSPAPER TOWNS (the right response each time's the name of the largest newspaper in circulation from that town)

The middle categories (Opera Characters & Roman the Roads) are left w/ each of them having a DD...& the champ's got one w/ the $1,600 clue in the latter category at $9K. He trails Ursula by a mere $200 & Julie's again $4K off Ursula's first-place score (but this time w/ $5,200). The wager will be 1/3 his bank, so for the lead, his clue is:

These stones bearing a dedication to the emperor were set every 1K paces along Roman roads.

"What are milestones?"...yes indeed for 12 big ones & the lead! That leaves about a minute left in the round for the other one to be chosen from Opera Characters...& Ursula has one from a $1,200 screen while doubling up Julie to $10,400; Joel's currently on $14K & has a $3,600 leading cushion between him & Ursula. For another two thou:

In a Franz Lehar opera, Hanna Glawari, who recently lost her banker-husband, is this title character.

Time runs out on her & this round, so we won't see either of the last two clues for that same theme. Correct: "What was The Merry Widow?".

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $3,600
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $5,200
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $8,800
