  The current genius contestant, Steve, has pocketed $69,000 and has answered 21.2% of his 500 Questions. He has a "Wrong" on the board and $4000 more at risk in his third round. Remember the one important rule: "Three Wrong and you're GONE!" His challenger, Megan, is chomping at the bit to prove Jeopardy isn't the ONLY game show she can rock! Can Steve actually do what Chico thinks "No! Damn! Body!" can do: answer 500 Questions? Let's get back to the action!

  Choyon is 50/50 when it comes to runaways. Let's see if he can go for the hat trick against...
Choyon Manjrekar
Providence, RI
urban planner
Michael Buss
Tiburon, CA
creative director
Amy Berg
San Diego
graduate student in philosophy

Choyon starts with $200 Portmanteau Words, finding the Daily Double under $400 Dostoyevsky. He's going for it on this: a series of his articles in the 1870s attacked Catholicism & predicted the triumph of this church. "What is the Orthodox Church?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2400! He ends the round with $5600 to $4600 for Michael. Amy's out of the red with $2200, but she'll get the first clue in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Presidents & Secretaries of State, where Choyon finds the first Daily Double under $1600. He bets $2000 on this: one of the 2 Presidents Dean Rusk served. "Who is Nixon?" No, it was either JFK or LBJ, leaving him with $2400. He'll try again with $1200 ___ of the ___. He fronts $2400 on this: the Coffin Texts & the Pyramid Texts were part of this 3500-year-old collection placed in tombs. "What is The Book of the Dead?" Correct for the lead with $6800! He ends up with $14,000. With Michael and Amy tied at $6600, it's Choyon's game to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Hymns": a Christian hymn & a Jewish holiday hymn are both titled this, also the name of a 2009 Tony-nominated musical. Correct response: what is "Rock of Ages"?

No one gets this, but we are introduced to the little-known hymn of "Kinky Boots". Choyon picks up another $14,000, giving him $56,700 for three!

New week on Wheel and we are 15 shows away from the Season Finale! This week(and we start on Memorial Day) we "Wish You Were Here!" The $1,000 Tossup is WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Morgan Doria is KICKING THINGS OFF. She is a speech language pathologist from NY. She loves cars and restoring. She cut off 12" of her hair for Locks of Love. Trent Lorenzen from Brooklyn Park, MN is a mortgage consultant. He is engaged with a son. Michelle Ferrier from Hawaii. He is married with 4 kids and works at a resort.

The $2,000 Tossup is THING. Trent has $2,000 with SWISS ARMY KNIFE. We add this to the wheel and it's a GC to the Aer Lingus Vacation Store for a trip to Ireland worth $6,000! It's SONG LYRICS. He misses a vowel. Michelle hits a $2,500 H. She picks up the 1/2 Car for a Ford Fiesta with 2 $500 D's and solves BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN for $3,650!

Michelle starts the ACT Mystery round which is BEFORE & AFTER. She misses a vowel. Morgan Bankrupts. Trent misses. Michelle picks up the GC worth $1,000 from with a $500 K but hits Lose a Turn. Morgan solves PRETTY IN PINK FLOYD for $2,050! She has $3,050!

Morgan also starts the Prize Puzzle/Express Wedge Round which is FOOD & DRINK. She picks up the WC with 2 $500 T's, but loses $1,800 and the WC on Bankrupt. Trent hits Lose a Turn. Michelle picks up the MDW with 2 F's but misses. Morgan solves FROZEN FRUITY COCKTAILS for $550 and a trip to a place that makes them and a place where she can relax while she drinks them...BARBADOS! It's a trip to The Crane in Barbados worth $8,440! She has $12,040 in cash and prizes!

The $3,000 Tossup is PHRASE. Morgan misses and Michelle has $6,650 with WILD AND WOOLLY. She starts PLACE, dominates and solves CHEERLEADER CAMP for $1,900. She has $8,550 and we have time for...

...EVENT. Morgan starts and misses. We go into a FINAL SPIN worth $1,500 a letter. Michelle solves A COMPLETE MAKEOVER for $6,000 and wins with $14,550! Morgan leaves with $12,040 in cash and prizes! Trent leaves with $2,000!

The Pre-Bonus Round Total is $28,590! Michelle lands on the 2nd A in AMERICA'S. Her category is PHRASE. With the RSTLNE and her choices of D P M I we have:

S _ _ _ P I N _
D _ _ N

She had it DOWN, but wasn't SWOOPING. She loses $45,000 but leaves with $14,550!

  Shallen Gorman (Vienna, VA)
She and her husband had won at trivia at a local sports bar for 13 weeks in a row.
(+1): Her husband, Charlie

She looks to the audience on the 1st question, and from that, she gets $10,000! She calls in her husband for the 4th, but he's unsure of it, so she jumps it and its $2,000. She has $39,100 when she faces this...

In the 20th century, the only first names held by multiple first ladies were Elizabeth and what?
A: Edith
B: Barbara
C: Ellen
D: Helen

Shallen tries to think about all the first ladies she can remember. She goes with her gut, saying B... but it's A! That sends her home with $1,000.

Sean Huddleston (Las Vegas, NV)
He's a self-proclaimed "mama's boy."
(+1): His mom

He jumps the 2nd question, which had $1,000. He asks the audience on the 3rd, and with their help, he gets $100. He goes into this with $20,100...

Which of these foods did NOT appear on the menu of Abraham Lincoln's 1865 inaugural ball?
A: Venison
B: Salisbury steak
C: Pheasant
D: Vanilla ice cream

Sean could see each of those except for B being on the menu; he's not so sure about B. He calls on his mom for help, but she's not sure about it herself. With that, Sean walks with $10,050! As for the answer, it is indeed B.
