  It's time once again for Celebrity Week! This week, celebrities will be playing the game for charity, and those charities are each guaranteed at least $10,000.

But first, Ken Jennings (Seattle, WA) returns to finish his game; on Friday, he built up a bank of $58,100 through 8 questions, and as one would expect from him, he has not used any lifelines yet.

He needs help on the 10th question, calling on both the audience and his Plus One (his friend and ours, Tony Hightower), but they're all unsure, so he jumps it and the $500 it had. That means he has $68,100 going into Classic Millionaire...

When Steve Jobs accused Bill Gates of ripping off Apple, Gates said they'd both stolen from what tech company that developed the mouse?
A: Hewlett-Packard
B: Xerox
C: Intel

Ken was a computer science major in school. He's pretty sure that it was B who came up with the mouse and the graphic interface. He goes with that... and he's right!

Before signing off with "Thank you and good night and God bless America," Al Gore ended his 2000 concession speech with what line?
A: "From sea to shining sea."
B: "That's a fight I'll never stop."
C: "I heard you and I will not forget."
D: "It's time for me to go."

Ken remembers the speech, and though it has been almost 15 years, he's feeling good about D. However, he isn't sure if he's confident enough about it to risk $75,000. In the end, he decides to walk. The answer is indeed D, but he does leave with $100,000!

Dr. Terry & Heather Dubrow - "Botched" and "Sequestered," respectively
Charity: Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County
(+1): ???

They have a total of $37,000 after 3 questions by the time the show ends for today; Dr. Terry and Heather will be back tomorrow!

April Richardson
Jerry Minor
Moshe Kasher

While you were busy living your life as a game of Super Mario Bros... running through a plate-glass window to catch a bus... we were going over the last weekend in Rapid Refresh. Tonight's #HashtagWars: in honor of Lorne Michaels' birthday, #RejectedSNLCharacters. Moshe gets 800 to April's 700 & Jerry's 600

Next up, it's Flight Risks (from the Passenger Shaming Facebook) and Normal Day in Russia (a subreddit dedicated to depicting a normal Russian day as a terrifying dystopian nightmare). Tonight's Live Challenge: Grindrgarten. A Redditor's kid was asked to name four other ways we can communicate other than sending a letter through the mail. We have Twitter, Focebook (sic), Focetime (sic), and Grindr. As their teacher, please explain what Grindr is. Moshe gets 1000 for this: "Its just like a play date no girls allowed, you have to share toys and if you're not careful you could get super gonorrhea." Again... (sic)

Does Anybody Else rounds us out. And the woman who is standing in for another woman (seriously) is getting the hook as April comes in third place.

FTW: Remember prom? Remember taking a picture of your buds with no shirts on? Reddit remembers. Write a DM of one of these guys trying to reconnect. The winner: "Hey, it's me, Tshirt guy. I've talked to a bunch of people over the years and they've never heard of post prom Bukkake either. That was a rotten trick." And the winner... MOSHE KASHER!

Remember, today's funny becomes tomorrow's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.

ROUND 1: Wendy & Kate start the week off with the appropriately-titled "Do You Hear What I Hear?" (famous folks with distinctive voices). Surprised that James Earl Jones was not in the mix, but they get $200 off of two. Barry & Mike are left with "Metal Mouths" (famous folks who have worn braces), getting three for $300.

ROUND 2: After the switch, Barry gives on "It's a Scream!" (people who have appeared in the "Scream" series), missing out on the one woman who's married to the guy playing with them! They get five for $1000, $1300 total. Wendy shouts, "I Have to Go to the John!" (famous Johns & Johnnys), getting only John Travolta for another $200, $400.

ROUND 3: Craig's category: "Is That What You're Wearing... Again?" (famous folks who often wear the same outfit). Barry & Mike ALMOST sweep the final round (they miss South Park blowhard Cartman and fast-food clown Ronald McDonald) to win, $3100 to $1400.

In the $20,000 Bonus, Mike gets three. Barry... also three.

In the nightcap (featuring Marilu Henner & Bianca Kajlich), Harvard kids Mike & Jordan (see what we did there?) hammer married couple Michael & Jenn, $3500 to $1800. Jordan passes Lou Gehrig in the Bonus, but Mike picks that AND Hollywood Bowl up to win the $20,000.

  Returning champions the Noris family will now play against the Limite family.

Crystal, N'aithan, Jay, Eric, Rell

Tina, Louie, Maria, Anna Marie, Anthony


SINGLE: 100 men: fill in the blank. "I wouldn't want to date a woman who had more ________ than me."
1. Hair/Whiskers 33     5. Cojones/Guts 8
2. Fat/Belly 10         6. Lovers 7
3. Muscles 10           7. Brains 7
4. Money 9              8. Kids 6

SINGLE: something that's measured by the cup.
1. Flour 31             5. Water 8
2. Sugar 26             6. Coffee 3
3. Bra/Dairy pillows 14 7. Oatmeal 2
4. Milk 9

DOUBLE: 100 men: If your dog could talk, something the two of you would talk about.
1. Hotties 40           5. Cars 5
2. Life/Our days 17     6. The comfy couch 5
3. Food 15
4. Pee/Poop/Outside 11

TRIPLE: something that's hard to do with your eyes open.
1. Sleep/Dream 75
2. Sneeze 16
3. Kiss 3
4. Swim/Dive 3

The Noris family could only get the #1 answer on the last survey, and the Limites had no pressure to win on a steal getting the #4 answer.

Anthony & Tina now will try their attempt at Fast Money. Anthony did well with his answers, with a good recovery at the end to get 123. Tina could only get four answers in time, and had weak answers, even thinking funny character. Not funny to lose, but they will finish with a total of $710.

Fast Money #1 answers
- What's an insane amount of money to spend on a purse?: $100 (Less than they thought)
- Something people burn: Wood/Logs (Anthony)
- Something you buy for your home that lasts for years: Furniture (Anthony)
- Something that's starts with the word funny: Funny bone
- A holiday where a store sells lots of candy: Halloween (Anthony)

In the nightcap, returning champions the Felton family are still hoping for better things to come, as they now play against the Hughes family.

Tell me a kind of ball that's smaller than a baseball.
1. Golf ball 70
2. Ping-pong ball 16
3. Tennis ball 7
4. Gumball 2

The Feltons had to get #4 on the last survey to retain another win. A marble is round like ball, but wasn't like ball and resulted in the Hughes family to win the game.

Christina & Bill will now get to play Fast Money. Christina started slow, but got the best answers on the remaining answers to get 147. Bill showed no pressure to get it done in three, and winning their $20,000.

  Getting their hair did and their quiz on tonight: the bearded Andrew and the not-so-much Deonda. After the warm-up, Andrew is blanking Deonda, 75-0.

CUT ROUND: Comb Over/Under. Each comb has a fact with the wrong number. Simple, over or under that number? Andrew still leads, 275 to 200.

SHAVE ROUND: Jon will give each player a word or phrase to draw in the mirror using shaving cream. You have 30 seconds to convey it to your stylist for 100. Today, it's things associated with Jon's high school years. Deonda pulls ahead, 300 to 275.

STYLE ROUND: Spinning Back in Time. Each right answer is worth 100. Andrew pulls ahead with 575 to Deonda's 400.

THE FINAL CUT: The category: Disney or Disease? The players have 45 seconds to answer either/or questions with their hand mirrors. Player with the most points gets $5000. Deonda gets 11 for 5500, 5900 total. Andrew gets 11 for 5500 and the win with 6075! That turns into $5000! And Natalia is scared for her life.

BONUS ROUND: Match five things in a category (in this case: TV families). If he matches all five, he wins $5000 more, $10,000 total! If not, he gets the Hair Jacked Do of the Day... the Rat Lizard. He's going for it! The answer: The Bluths, The Keatons, the Barones, the Winslows, and the Crawleys. Just match up their TV shows. He goes with Arrested Development, Family Ties, Everybody Loves Raymond, Family Matters, and Downton Abbey for the SWEEP!

In the nightcap, Ericka (EJ) leads Tracee, 425 to 300 going into the Final Cut (X-Men or Rx?). EJ got eight for 4425. Tracee got... nine for 4800 and the game and the money! But will she double it in the Bonus (Celebrity Children) or get the Bad Elf, a neon-green Mohawk? She takes the money and runs, BUT will EJ rock the Bad Elf for $2500? YES!

We gave the house away to 30 lucky contestants last week. Time to give the garage away to Zennie West, Jesse Sanchez, Stacie Kozachuk, and Robert Larsen. They start with a smartphone. With service, it's $1940. It's also Zennie's, but can she use it on a Sea-Doo? We don't recommend it, but still, it's hers if she knows whether she's Coming ($9167) or Going ($7619). She goes... and she's going to ride the waves!

Stacie gets a $1800 silver bracelet & necklace. Now a shot at $16,000? It's in the Bag. Hi-Chew candies for $1.29? YES! A sixer of PediaSure shakes for $12.99? YES! Diamond pecans for $7.99? YES! Gulden's mustard for $2.69? YES! And she stops there. The Orville Redenbacher popcorn... WAS $3.99! SHE HAD THE MONEY! But hey, $8000... that's real.

Jesse wins a $1200 HDTV and a shot at a Mini Cooper in Money Game.

95  43  68
22  70  21
20  39  83

Middle number: 7. 22... FRONT! 83... money. 68... money. 95... money. Last pick is 43. And he gets $289. It's ALMOST NEVER the Easter Egg. It was $22,739.

Zennie spins her way into the Showcase. Meanwhile, Robert finishes the first-four sweep with a $2111 MacBook with Bluetooth speakers. Next up, a pool table and a refrigerator/freezer in Double Cross.

1 6 3   9 8 0
4 2 5   9 5 7


He slides the pool table to $3295 (and therefore, by courtesy, the fridge to $2529). The price.... is RIGHT!

Michael Sediak goes down and up thanks to a $650 set of small appliances (win one of them at the fryer). He can whip up a trip to Brazil (6n @ Salvador) if he picks the right Pick-a-Number. The price: $8_23. The numbers: 0, 4, 7. He picks 4... Needed to pick 7.

Joyce Barth is another one-time with a $1395 set of Marc Jacobs accessories. She can take it home in a VW Jetta S in 5 Price Tags.


She gets only one pick from a $90 steam iron. That pick: $20,380.... NO. It was $18,815. She gets another chance at the Showcase.

First up, shine bright like a diamond with a ladies' Rolex, a trip to Aspen (5n @ The Gant Aspen), and a Toyota Yaris. Top winner Zennie bids $23,500. Joyce gets to tour the heavenly bodies of Santa Fe (5n), Iceland (6n @ Selfoss), and all points in between in a Mazda 3i GT. She bids $23,000. Actual price: $40,748, a difference of $17,748. Actual price of Zennie's Showcase... $32,679 to win with a difference of $9179! That gives her a total of $42,238!
