R2 (BB): Natalia ($1K)- Five-night trip to Barcelo Los Cabos Palace Deluxe ($5,938)
FR (CURTAIN #2): Lance (dumpster time machine, so only Erica keeps her $1,300)

Aimee (leprechaun) couldn't have discovered a better time to play Car Pong (as you know, the timer for this deal's permanent since it was instituted) for the 2012 Mazda3 Sport (Curtain #3), because she was in a car accident.

Choices: Tess Ocean, Vivian Ward, Erin Brockovich & Margaret Ward
Prompt: Characters played by Julia Roberts
PICKS: Erin Brockovich, Margaret Ward

FINAL RESULT- WINS $100 W/ SOUTHWEST CUP IN :05

(Note: I think this was the last CP playing taped before the increased cash amounts came into play.)

The next three traders have to Follow the Leader.

Rejected in Vanya's R: BB (Kitchen)- Small appliances w/ a home brewing system & a year's worth of Green Mountain Coffee ($2,494)
Rejected in David's R: CURTAIN #1 (Garage)- Pirate bathtub car
Rejected in Elizabeth's R (a teacher dressed as a cat): SB (Living room)- Good one ($4,905)

THE BIG RISK (SE): David (the ladies each receive $1.5K)- Strong Spa 6

Trisha (another Hawaiian dressed as a sailor) & Brooke (spa girl) are going to war in Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Trisha: #3- ROCK
Brooke: #1- SCISSORS

After discussing the current matter w/ her husband Brandon (water buffalo)...she takes her shot at that Chevrolet Sonic 1LT (Curtain #2).

ROCK: C. SONIC- PERFECT DEAL!

Wayne already has that mustache on to become Dr. Wayne at another couple's expense- Mark & Cynthia (who've been married for 21 yrs.):

R1:
RB: Accessories ($2,224)
GB: Camcorder & digital camera ($2,199)

M- "Designer bag"
C- "PURSE"

R2 (CURTAIN #1):
A: Bull BBQ ($2,183)
B: Apple products ($2,316)

C- "Electronics"
M- "Electronics"

TBR (CURTAIN #3): NO- Elephant floss

PERFECT DEAL #2

Dr. Wesley (at least from his costume) walks to the Which Came First? board.

1. "Kung Fu Panda" & "How to Train Your Dragon": "Kung Fu Panda"- '08 ($1K)("How to Train Your Dragon": '10)
2. "Roseanne" & "Friends": "Roseanne"- '88 ($1.5K)("Friends": '94)

3. "Some Hearts" by Carrie Underwood & "Circus" by Britney Spears: "Some Hearts" (the audience didn't agree w/ him there)- '05 ($2K)("Circus": '08- not revealed on TV)

TBR (CURTAIN #2): NO- Pair of appliances w/ kitchen island & groceries for a yr. ($7,210)

THE BIG DEAL: Did Wesley just give up any opportunity at that $24,488 Australian adventure w/ $2K spending money because of not going big at the end of the regular deals...YES, which means David goes for it instead (& Trisha's marriage to Brandon definitely stays intact). But it's definitely NOT behind DOOR #2 again- he leaves w/ a ViewSonic electronics suite worth $6,121. And left in #1 today was The Bank Vault worth $2,546.

Judy disappoints Jonathan because she doesn't have an unworn eye patch worth $500, but Eliza (dressed as a student prom attendee) wins that much anyway because she shows Tiffany five student IDs payable at $100 each!

(Final notes: Even though this episode was taped on Nov. 10th, the Big Deal standings weren't announced at all throughout this show. Also, the Dr. Wayne intro graphics weren't used either.)

Barbie then takes another dud of T, followed by Chase adding another $3.5K w/ a Y, buying an I but then a dud of O. John tries to solve this after a $600 G comes at him...

J!: Remember, these are the last three available semi-finalists in the '12 Teen Tournament:

Krishna Bharathala (who was born on April 2nd; his mom was born the day before!)
Rose Schaefer (who's never been to our nation's capital until this tourney)
Kevin Yang

On Offer First:
CITIZENSHIP
PLAY SETTINGS
HE'S QUITE THE SPORTSMAN
WHEN IN THE WORLD?
CLOTHES MAKE THE IDIOM
CARS IN AMERICA (video clues by Vice-President Joe Biden)

When In the World did the first American Daily Double of the night get chosen? By Krishna under its middle clue w/ $1,200; he trails Rose by $1K for second & Kevin by $1,600 for first. He's going for the doubler on this answer just before the first break:

Newly-elected U.S. Senators & Congressmen are sworn in on the 3rd of this month.

"What is March?"...back to zero. The right month was January. Time expires before we can see the last Cars in America answer.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $800 (Citizenship)
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS: $1K (Clothes Make the Idiom)
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $1,800

Post-J! Round Scores:
Kevin & Rose: $4,600 each (Kevin was given $200 back just before the start of the next round because of a technical difficulty regarding Eli Manning's picture on the $200 He's Quite the Sportsman clue)
Krishna: $2,600

Double J! Topics:
CITIZENSHIP (each right response's a country)
HOW SYMBOLIC
THE SILENT MOVIE ERA
ALSO A 2-LETTER POSTAL ABBREVIATION
BIOLOGY
HISTORY SINCE YOU WERE BORN

This $1,600 Biology clue better be up Kevin's alley while having $6,200, because it has a DD attached; Rose's just $800 behind him & Krishna's added $400 since the start of this round ($3K). Kev will risk two G's & his lead on this:

Canvanine, produced by some plants, is a special one of these acids; it messes up proteins in insects' bodies.

"What is a corrosive acid?"...NO- the actual kind of acid was amino and he dips to $4,200 & second. They're hunting for the last one hidden within The Silent Movie Era...& out of a choice of the $800, $1,200 or $2K screens, Kevin goes the right route w/ the $1,200 spot & $10,600. This is a tight game, because he's only $800 behind Krishna for second & $1,600 behind Rose. For another $2K & the lead back, Kev's clue is:

Later famous for thrillers like "Psycho", this man directed the silent murder mystery "The Lodger".

He nails "Who is Alfred Hitchcock?" to get first back at $12,600 as time runs out on this round!

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $800 (History Since You Were Born)
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS: $2K (Citizenship)
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $2,800

Pre-Final J! Scores:
Kevin: $12,600
Rose: $12,200
Krishna: $11,400

CORYAT SCORES:
Kevin: $13,800

Rose: $12,200
Krishna: $12,600

FINAL J! CATEGORY:
Contemporary Novelists.

Seeing young people competing in a reality show on one channel & fight a war on another gave this author a book idea.

Krishna wrote "Who is Suzanne Collins"...IT WAS HER TO DOUBLE UP TO $22,800! Rose...also is right to nearly double to $24,399...& Kevin had William Golding instead, so Rose's in the finals starting tomorrow!
