It's the crossword game you've played on the pages of People Magazine... but never quite like this!

"I'd probably win the award for most valuable..."
"I'd probably win the award for most valuable..."
"I'd probably win the award for most valuable..."

Correct answers in PUZZLE 1 are worth 10 points per letter. You keep control for every word you solve, and if you solve three in a row, you get a bonus of 100 points, but it ends your turn. Today, we're playing with these four categories...

PUZZLE CATEGORIES: Summer Jobs, Teen Idols, House Chores, Happy Hour.

PUZZLE #1: Summer Jobs. Ed gets a bonus from WORK, WAITER, and POPCORN. Sarah finds the Double Word, where two words are connected by a single clue.
- DOUBLE WORD: M _ _ I _ _ _ / _ A _ E - What you'll get paid for your summer job. MINIMUM WAGE is right for 200. She finishes with MiLKER for three-in-a-row, giving her 360 to 390 for Havilah. Ed has 270.

PUZZLE #2: Each letter is now worth 20 points with a 200-point bonus for three in a row, and there's a Wager Word, in which you can wager any or all your points. Player with the lowest points is eliminated. Ed gets to pick with HOUSE CHORES.

PUZZLE #2: House Chores. Ed gets a bonus for KARATEKID, COOKING, and LAUNDRY to go to 930. Havilah gets DISHES, POLISH, and ALICE to tie with 930. Sarah finds the Wager Word. She bets 150 on this...
- WAGER WORD: B R _ _ _ - Wicked Witch vehicle. She gets BROOM for 510.
She also gets TRASH and DUST for three in a row for a total of 890. Ed finishes the puzzle with SOL for 990 to 930 for Havilah. Sara at 890 is eliminated with a year of People Magazine.

HEAD-TO-HEAD: Each player will have 60 seconds to fill in as much of a puzzle as they can. Every correct answer is worth 50 per letter. Complete the puzzle, and it's another 1000. The categories: INTERNET and GOIN' COUNTRY.
- Ed picks GOIN' COUNTRY. He gets ... RACECAR, YALL, URBAN... and that's time for 1790.
- Havilah is left with INTERNET, getting WEBCAM, MEME, BROADBAND, MYSPACE, STEVE, ZUCKERBERG, AMAZON, WIFI, and misses ENGINE, but wins, 3480-1790! Ed leaves with a year of People Magazine as well.

$10,000 FAST PUZZLE: This is how Havilah turns $1000 into $10,000. Given four categories - in this case COokies, Fashion Accessories, Reptiles, and News Anchors - she'll have to solve three three-word puzzles. She picks Cookies, Fashion ACcessories, and Reptiles.
- FASHION ACCESSORIES: She gets BAGUETTE, ASCOT, and ... passes.
- COOKIES: She gets ... nothing before time expires. She missed Fields, Tollhouse, and Biscotti

Back to Fashion, she missed BANGLES. She does leave with the $1000 she won previously.

Donesh finds the Daily Double under $1000 Historical Markers. He fronts $1000 on this: a marker near Port Royal, Virginia identifies the site of the Garrett farm & barn, where this man met his end April 26, 1865. He blanks on John Wilkes Booth, dropping to $3400, where he ends the round with $6000 for Jennifer. Helen, on $400 in the blue, will start..

New week on Deal starts off with Kay the Superheroine(works in investor relations) who is playing 0 TO 80 for a Honda Civic LX Sedan worth $21,755! Here's how the game works. Kay will pick tokens one at a time(after gloving up with a racing glove) out of a grab bag. The tokens range from 0mph - 40mph. If Kay can get her car up to 80mph in 4 token picks or less...she will win the Honda. Her first pick is 30mph, then 20mph. She is over 1/2 way there. She passes on $1,000 to pick...40MPH. GAME OVER and the Honda is hers JUST. LIKE. THAT.

We need three people and they are Brian(3rd grade Teacher) on Safari, Jamie the Cow(Valet Supervisor) and King Kris(at homie from Dallas, Texas). They each have the contents of Jonathan's Wallet. Who takes Curtain 3 for Jonathan's Wallet? Brian does and wins a game room including Blue Wave Shuffleboard Table, hardwood ping pong table from Game Room Guys and Sony 4K Smart HDTV worth $6,429! Kris takes the small box over the wallet and wins a trip to Camp No Counselors for 3N - this adult summer camp trip is worth $4,820! Jamie can take Curtain 1 for the Wallet.

Shawn takes the $500 and passes on the red small box which had a $3,200 pair of Loris Jewelry Diamond Hoop Earrings AND the trip to the Ozarks in the Green ticket Jacket. Gina takes the earrings over keeping her ticket or trading her ticket jacket from Red to Blue. That was a good choice. Her Blue Ticket did NOT have a trip, but the Red one did!

THIS IS THE GREATEST SHOW - which is the first Primetime Special of LMAD for 2021 - and $21,000 will be hidden somewhere in each deal! We start with Beverly the Lucky Lady Lotto(works in fertility marketing). She can take the LMAD Piggy Bank or Curtain 1. Leftovers go to Nardeen the Pinata(health educator for LA County). Beverly wins a LAMB-BORGHINI(ZONK)! Nardeen can take the Piggy Bank or Curtain 2. Leftovers go to an at-homie Jonathan(in Houston - the reindeer is a cruise director for Carnival Cruises). Nardeen takes Curtain 2 and wins a pair of outdoor grills from recteq grills and FOUR YEARS of lobster tails from Maine Lobster Now worth $9,937! Jonathan can take the LMAD Gift Bag or the Piggy Bank. He takes the Piggy Bank and passes on the Gift Bag which was a trip to NYC! It was a 4N at the Conrad New York Downtown worth $6,620! Jonathan wins $21,000 in cash!

We are playing Dice Duel with Shirley in the Top Hat and Tails(receptionist) and Adam the Pharaoh(personal trainer). The game works like this. We have numbers on stage from 2-12. Each dealer will roll two die down their ramp. As long as they keep rolling eligible numbers, they will add cash to their total. If they roll a number that has been knocked off the board, they each have ONE FREE ROLL CARD to roll again. If they roll a bad number twice, the game is over. No roll off this time as Adam goes first with a 10. He gets $1,700. Shirley rolls a 7 and adds $1,000 to her total. Adam rolls 6 and adds $1,200 to his total. He has $2,900. Shirley rolls 12 and adds $4,000 to her total! She has $5,000. Adam rolls 5 and adds $1,500. He has $4,400. Shirley rolls 6 - BAD ROLL. She uses her free roll and rolls 9 - GOOD ROLL. She adds $1,300 and has $6,300. Adam rolls 8 and adds THE HIDDEN $21,000 to his total! He has $25,400 in cash! Shirley rolls an 8 - SHE IS OUT. Adam has a very interesting decision. He has $25,400 in cash. He will keep it(I hope) and not take the LMAD Envelope. Adam keeps the money which was smart. If he had a little less cash - he MIGHT have taken the envelope which had the keys to a 2021 Audi Q5 SUV worth $44,395! I don't blame Adam one bit!

Chantelle the Egg(retired X-Games Skier - runs Bridge to Skate - a non profit) is playing the DEALING GAME. Chantelle is trying to make the best deal match for her. Wayne represents Curtain 1 and Jonathan represents the Big Box(a first time use of the Big Box in this game). Chantelle will ask two questions of our deal bachelors and she hopes to make the best match for the best prize. FIRST QUESTION: IF YOUR PRIZE AND I WERE GOING TRICK OR TREATING, WHAT I WOULD I WEAR TO MATCH YOUR PRIZE PERFECTLY? Wayne says something GOLD, SHINY AND HARD. Jonathan says LEATHER BABY. Next question: IF YOUR PRIZE WERE TO STAR IN A ROMANTIC COMEDY - WHAT WOULD THE TITLE BE? Wayne says "Don't take my love for Granite" and "A River Ran Through It". Jonathan says "Hey - WHAT'S THAT VIBRATING UNDER THE LEATHER BABY". Chantelle takes the Curtain and passes on the Big Box. She nailed the Big Box prize - a luxury pampering package with an Active L Leather Massage Chair from Ogawa, a healing electronics package and a year of Hand & Stone Massage ALONG WITH THE HIDDEN $21,000! That was worth $28,280! Chantelle DID NOT get zonked as she is going to Yellowstone National Park from Natural Habitat Adventures worth $15,862!

Eric the VCR Tape(with a great story about him erasing a baby VHS Tape for Whose Line) is playing GOLD RUSH for a very special car - a 2021 Mercedes Benz C300 Cabriolet Convertible worth $59,020! Here's how the game works. We have 8 boxes on stage. 6 of them have gold. Those gold pieces will help him climb the money ladder from $500/$1,000/$2,000/$4,000/CAR. The other two boxes have dynamite(ZONKS). The dynamite will blow Eric back down to the start and depending on if and when he finds them, he may not be able to win the Mercedes. If he finds both dynamites, the game is sadly over. And Wayne incorporates the $21,000 in this manner. If Eric can sweep the gold without hitting ANY dynamite - he will add $21,000 to his total for $80,020 in cash and car! He starts with 7 and it is GOLD. He has $500. Eric goes on with 1 and loses the $21,000 with DYNAMITE. Eric can still win the Mercedes. We start again with 2 and it is GOLD. Eric has $500 and picks 8. It's GOLD. He has $1,000 and Eric picks 3. It's GOLD. He has $2,000. We have 4 5 and 6 left. Two have gold and one has dynamite. Eric goes on with 6 - and he is DONE. That was the 2nd dynamite.

John/Katrace(3 years - African Royalty - both nurses) gets help for this deal from the stars of "Bob <3 Abishola" - Billy Gardell and Folake Olowofoyeku(Bob and Abishola). Wayne explains he knows Billy all the way back from High School in Orlando Florida when they both did Open Mic Nights in different groups! Here's how they are going to help. Wayne is going to show John/Katrace two pairs of items. They will pick one of them and will hope that Billy and Folake will have them. If one of them has the item - it's worth $1,000 to John/Katrace. If they BOTH have it - it's worth $2,000! If things work out - John/Katrace can earn $6,000! The first pair is BOX OF TISSUES/LOTION. John/Katrice pick LOTION. After a moment, we reveal that Billy and Folake BOTH have lotion. John/Katrace have $2,000. Next pair - CANDLE/CLOCK. John/Katrace pick CLOCK. We are two for two and John/Katrace have $4,000. Last one - 3 TOOTHBRUSHES/BOOK WITH OVER 300 PAGES. They pick the book and John/Katrace have $6,000. Will they keep the cash, buy Curtain 3 for $3,000 or the LMAD Gift Bag with all of the $6,000. They didn't buy Curtain 3 for $3,000 which was A GOOD MOVE - it was A CARDBOARD BOOMBOX(ZONK)! The Gift Bag has Louis Vuitton Accessories AND $21,000 IN CASH! That is worth $27,060!

Last deal of the night involves Sean the Gangster(stay at home Dad). He can win $21,000 this way. Sean starts with $21. The other 3 zeroes are hidden behind the letters associated with 3 celebrity pairs that are related in some form. They are: A:JULIA ROBERTS/EMMA ROBERTS; B: MILEY CYRUS/JUSTIN BIEBER; C: GOLDIE HAWN/KATE HUDSON; D: NICOLAS CAGE/FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA and E: ARIANA GRANDE/SELENA GOMEZ. If Sean can find the three correct pairs, he wins $21,000! He picks A/C/D. A is correct(Julia is Emma's Aunt). C is correct(Goldie is Kate's mom). Sean passes on $3,000....$5,000...$6,000...$7, reveal that Nicolas Cage just so happens to be THE NEPHEW of Francis Ford Coppola! That means Sean is $21,000 richer!

Who trades for a shot at $85,207? John/Katrace trade their cash and Louis V stuff!

They pick 1. 3 was the LMAD Vault with $21,000 in cash! 2 was a trip to the Bahamas for 5N at the Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive worth $8,372! That means John/Katrace win the Big Deal of the Night behind 1 and it starts with a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4 X 4 worth $55,835! How do I know the number - because John/Katrice won EVERYTHING IN THE BIG DEAL! The Jeep, the trip and the $21,000 in cash are worth $85,207!

Today at the wall, it's husband & wife Tamara & Leo of Jonesboro, AR. Tamara is a professor & mentor of teenagers while Leo is a mental health therapist who is an advocate for criminal justice reform.

FREEFALL: Tamara & LEo hit the Plus Button on the first question to double their first drop from $40,000 to $80,000. They end up with a total of $155,104.  That's the least that they can win. Now as Leo heads behind the Wall, it's time to find out the most!

SUPERDROP ROUND: The seven balls fall into... $175,023! That gives them a bank of $330,127!
- Q1 (6): a) Dallas Cowboys b) Minnesota Vikings c) New England Patriots: Lizzo began her #1 song "Truth Hurts" by saying she just took a DNA test, and later in the song she revealed that she had a new man on which NFL team? He says A... ... but it was B, dropping the total by... $10.
- Q2 (DOUBLE 3): a) Hippopotamus b) Rhinoceros c) Platypus: Which animal's name came from the Greek for "river horse"? He says A... RIGHT for ... a dollar! ... AND $150,000!
- Q3 (2): a) Coins b) Matches c) Watch: First introduced in the 1870s, the small pocket on the front right side of the first pair of Levi's blue jeans was originally designed to hold which of these? He says C...GOOD for $75,000! So that puts the Wall at ... $555,118!

... but the Wall gives, and the Wall takes.

FINAL SUPERDROP: and the Wall takes back $275,201 for a final running total of... $279,917!

FINAL ROUND: Tamara drops into #6, #2, #5, and #1.... $400,000.... $10... $10... and $100,000 for a total of $779,937!
- Q4 (3): a) Smoke on the Water b) Stairway to Heaven c) Seven Nation Army d) Smells Like Teen Spirit: Which of these songs was included in the original version of the 2005 video game "Guitar Hero"? He goes with A... RIGHT for... $100,000!
- Q5 (4): a) Old School b) Talladega Nights c) Anchorman d) Elf: Which of these movies did NOT show Will Ferrell in his underwear? He says A... and it was D to cost him... $200,000.
- Q6 (1): a) Agra b) Mumbai c) New Delhi d) Jaipur: The Taj Mahal is located in which Indian city? He goes with C... but it was A to lose.. $200,000, putting the Wall at a total of $479,937.

The offer standing now is  $215,104 guaranteed - the original stake plus $20,000 for every correct answer. If they sign the contract, they walk away with the guaranteed money. If not, they leave with the value of the Wall after we drop...

- #6: $1
- #2: $50,000
- #5: $500,000

That completely wipes out the Wall, so unless Leo signed the contract, it's all or nothing. He... SIGNED THE CONTRACT for $215,104!
