  It's Alex Jacob's world. We're just living in it. Now it's back to business with......
Laura Ashby
Marietta, GA
Colin Thibadeau
Bronx, NY
music producer & sound editor
Matt Keeshin

Laura gets us going with $200 History on Film. At the TV time out, the champ has $2000, Matt has $600, and Colin has yet to make a move.

Colin has the Daily Double under $600 Fictional Captains. He bets $1400 on this: he relieves Captain de Vriess of his duty in "The Caine Mutiny". "Who is Captain Cook?" No, it was Captain Queeg, leaving him with $200. He goes back up to $1000 to Laura's $5200. Matt has $800 and the first go in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Add an "E". Matt finds the first Daily Double under $2000 Women CEOs. He's going for it on this: born & raised in Wilmington, Delaware, Ellen Kullman was perhaps destined to lead this over-200-year-old company. "What is DuPont?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $6400! And we have a back-to-back and a belly-to-belly under $1200 Well-Seasoned Books. He bets $2000 on this: Shakespeare was hot & cold with these 2 plays that have seasons in the title. "What is 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' & 'A Winter's Tale'?" GOOD ENOUGH for $8400! He ends with $9200 to $13,200 for Laura. Colin can spoil with $5400.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "The 16th Century": in 1521 he was the credited author of "Defence of the 7 Sacraments" against Martin Luther's attacks. Correct response: who was Henry VIII?

Laura is the only one to get to to win $18,401 and doubling her stash to $36,802!

The Bronkes needed to steal #3 on the last survey to send the game to sudden death. They went for a parent, but it wasn't up there, giving the Brawleys the shutout win and the Bronkes their $500 prepaid cards.

Eric & Mona will see if they can get the job done in Fast Money. Eric did well with most of his answers as he got 117. Mona thought you just want one more grape, which got her to a slow start and couldn't get any of the remaining #1s that could have done it, but they will end up with a total of $795.

Fast Money #1 answers
- Something that after you've eated, you tell yourself just one more: Cookies
- A place you might hear someone scream: Movie theater
- The evening hour a babysitting job ends: 11pm
- Something specific you do to your car: Wash/Wax it (Eric)

2. Sewing kit 19
3. Tool kit 8
4. Grooming/Pedicure 2

The Ellis family needed either #3 or #4 on the last survey to send the game to sudden death. They thought one of them was a shoe shine kit, but it was not up there, giving the Clowes the win.

Michelle & David Jr. will see how well they do in Fast Money. Michelle did well giving them a shot after scoring 133. David Jr. has a tough time on other Woodys guessing on Woody Hayes, but the last answer was a #1, and got them their $20,000.

Week 10 is a three day week(due to the Thanksgiving Holidays). Let's start it off with Bingo Lady April, Miranda the Accident Victim, and Ian the Workout Guy. They are playing DRAW STRAWS.

He gets BY SEA, SMOOTHIES and misses ROMANCE. He changes 2 spots from ZONK to car. Will he take the $1,000($500/correct answer) or GO FOR A SPIN? He spins and wins...$400.

Anthony can give up all his prizes for Curtain 2. He doesn't and Debra adds a new Yamaha S-Max Scooter worth $3,690! Who keeps and who trades for the Big Box? No one trades for the Big Box which was a SMART Pure Coupe worth $14,020!

Spencer/Mariah(Native Americans) can put some bacon on the Thanksgiving Table by playing SMASH FOR CASH. We have 10 pigs and 8 have cash which will help them go up the money ladder to win up to $20,000 in cash. 2 pigs have zonks...and they hope they won't find them.

It's an abbreviated week on the big show, as we call down Emily Valenziano, Stephen Ambrose, Winona Hilgesen, and Crystle Carrion to bid on a home theatre with Blu-Ray package. The $1794 package goes to Winona, who can add the seats, the TV, and the lift cabinet to go with it if she wins Flip Flop. The price is not $5829. She flops to $5892... and that's right!

Robert Clifton goes down and up thanks to a $542 coffee maker & espresso machine. Next up for him is something else that's wired, a Kia Rio in the Five Price Tags:


He gets one pick from a $130 omelet/waffle maker. He only needs one. He picks $16,115 for the win.

Emily wins $500 from a perfect bid on a $600 set of Fitbits and a chance at a cooler, an action camera with accessories, and a Sea-Doo (C-Note: or one Frank Nicotero away from an episode of "Pontoon Payday") in Make Your Move.

5 2 6 8 4 1 4 2 4

She goes $23 for the cooler... $526 for the camera... and $8414 for the Sea-Doo.... and we have a perfect first half! But Emily would cap it with a Showcase berth.

Meanwhile Crystle is clear with a $1098 pair of Surfaces. Crystle... clear... Surface. You can't make this up! She'll try to parlay that into $10,000 in the Grand Game. Target: $5.50. Clif bar... $1.29. Swans Down cake flour... $3.99. Chicken of the Sea salmon.. $2.49. She's going for it with Starbucks coffee... They call it "Morebucks coffee" for a reason. It's $5.99.

Katherine Vercelli gets a $1826 wall-mounted fireplace with leather chaise lounge. She'll really heat things up if she wins a trip to my ancestral homeland, Panama (6n @ Popa Paradise Beach Resort) in Pick-a-Number.

$_8 3 7
#: 5 7 9

She picks the 7... A GANAR!

Last chance for Stephen to get in on this with an Xbox One package. The price: $830. The winner... Vincente Guerrero. He'll try for a set of designer handbags, a pizza oven, an exercise bike, and ... a CHEVY CRUZE! It's More or Less. He goes MORE than $1200 on the purse... $2450 is right. Next, is the pizza oven LESS than $2000? Sure is, it's $1598. Exercise bike... more than $1500? No, it's $999. He more than makes up for it by winning $1000 on the Big Wheel.

Firs tin the Showcase, an iMac to plan a trip to Vancouver (6n @ Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre) and a time on a sailboat. Top winner Emily passes, and Vincente bids $24,000. Emily gets a hot tub, a set of small electrics, and a trip to Montenegro (6n @ Hotel Mediteran Ulcinj). She tags it at $17,5000. Actual price: $28,688, a difference of $11,188. Actual price of Vincente's Showcase... $26,902, a difference of $2902 for the win and $32,780!

  Caitlyn McDougall (Buffalo, NY) - Agriculture specialist at an airport
She has seen plenty of strange sights at her job.
(+1): A family friend, Rob

She uses the 50:50 at $2,000 on her way to securing $5,000. She gets help from the audience at $7,000, then calls on Rob at $20,000. That is followed by this...

The namesake of a present-day city, what Canadian famously discovered gold in Alaska in 1880?
A: William Anchorage
B: Pierre Fairbanks
C: Joseph Juneau
D: Kenneth Kodiak

Caitlyn says that they're all namesakes of present-day cities, and that she's not sure who discovered gold in Alaska, so she walks with $20,000! The answer is C.

Holly Gray (Louisville, KY)
She has a bit of an unusual wish list for if she wins the million.

She easily secures $5,000 before time runs out for today; Holly returns tomorrow for more!
