Also, he won (or at least shared the win) an ALL-TIME RECORD NINE ELIMINATION/MAIN CHALLENGES (including tonight's; he also set the overall challenge wins record) & as a result accumulated yet another $30K, the Toyota prius v, a trip to Costa Rica & tickets to see "Snow White & The Huntsman"! And he's going to be featured in Food & Wine & said magazine's Aspen festival! When you total it all up, he's won well over $200K in cash & stuff, including $185K cash alone!!!

And as for Sarah, she's still $30K happier then she was before she got onto this program.

Leap Year Day 2012 Results

LMaD: She's a LFaT of the show as Wednesday's first trader- Britney from Tampa, FL (dressed as the twitter bluebird; she follows both this program's & Wayne's twitter feeds). There are cars behind each of the three curtains, but just in case she thinks she's gonna get ZONKED, she can have a $50 bankroll loaded w/ $100s. Her final answer's Curtain #1.

Kristen solves "JACK AND THE BEANSTALK" to triple her money.

Wednesday's Featured Resort: Holvaloa Inn w/ Bed and Breakfast.com airfare ($6,590)

IHOP Jackpot Round: Phrase

She starts by calling two $500 N's, buying two A's, calling a $400 R & two D's for the Wild Card, then she buys an I but then gets into Lose a Turn trouble. Second, Heather wastes a spin because of the Million Dollar Wedge's right Bankrupt. Third, Michael calls out two T's for five grand & a $2.5K H, purchases three E's & calls the $900 S set before we get...

S _ _ _ / A N D

S T E A D _ /

_ I N S / T H E / R A _ E

...& he gets the Aesop moral "SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE" for $8,150.

SOLE LaT: Kristen
SOLE BANKRUPT: Heather
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $11,200

Current Scores:

Michael: $8,150/Kristen: $3K (WC)/Heather: $0

Mystery Round: Before & After

Heather picks up a $600 T at the end of the first of three words, then four S's turn those six bills into 30, after which she buys an E (the second letter of the middle word) but then the sole baddie vowel (A). Second, Michael calls for an R, but that's also a dud. Third, Kristen calls a couple N's for a thousand dollars & a $400 D, then she buys twin O's & puts in two C's for 1,200 more bucks & a $500 P for the green 1/2 KIA. The board as we see it currently...

S P _ _ T

S E C O N D

C O _ S _ N S

...she's correct w/ "SPLIT SECOND" COUSINS for another $2,850.

DUDS: A (Heather), $800 R (Michael)

Current Scores:

Michael: $8,150/Kristen: $5,850 (1/2 KIA)(WC)/Heather: NIL

Prize Puzzle Round: Same Letter

Our current leader Michael begins w/ $1,050 worth of three S's, two E's & an A, but he then gets let down by the I. Second, Kristen captures two R's at $300 each, quad T's for another $3,600 & the two O's down at the bottom prior to Bankrupting next to where the WC formerly was to fork over both pieces of cardboard & $3,950. Third for Heather are two $600 B's but then the same Bankrupt, her second tonight. That gives Michael a chance to pad his lead...

R4: Movie Quote

His next letters are four S's at the bottom for 18 Benjamins, an O, two E's, a $700 T couplet, an $800 H, five U's & the A to finish off the vowels, then coming his way is the LaT. Once Kristen calls the $10K P pairing, she calls up the $400 L but then goes Bankrupt the same way she did before to flush down $10,400; both women have two Bankrupts to their credit. Afterwards, Heather calls the $500 N but gets the same fate, so that's her third & likely final one of this match, which also means Michael...

W _ L L - D _ S _ R _ _ D

P R _ M _ T _ _ N

...Kristen blanks out w/ $11,200 on the line. After Mike calls the three free O's...

W _ L L - D _ S _ R _ _ D

P R O M O T _ O N

...he only gets the first two syllables of the solution, so he's still not definitely the champ just yet (& $1,600's in his bank). Kristen then gets a hold of that E quartet...

W E L L - D E S E R _ E D

P R O M O T _ O N

...& gets a WELL-DESERVED PROMOTION (not necessarily, though) by $11,200! Heather missed out on $6,400.

On nominating this man in 1967, LBJ said "It is the right thing to do, the right time to do it, the right man & the right place".

Let's remind you of last night's scores:

Brooks: $5,800
Justin: $4,799
Patrick: $5,589

Patrick Quinn's last question was "Who is T. Marshall?"...he just got it in under the wire & it's a good thing- Thurgood's right! That earns him another $8,311, for $16,711 this evening & a final total of $22,300. Brooks Humphreys...falls short w/ Abe Fortas, dropping $2K to $6,600 here, $12,400 overall. Justin Hofstetter needed to have gotten this clue right & have wagered at least $8,102...




































































































































...but Robert Kennedy costs him 10 big ones, so he leaves w/ the $25K after finishing this finale w/ $6,199 & PATRICK WINS THE $100K!
