Ladies and gentlemen... please welcome to the TPIR family, Mr. James O'Halloran. Now welcome to the extended TPIR family Megan Sheen, Benjamin James, Connie deSouza, and Patrick Wilts, as they get to play for today's Holiday Gift Idea, a treadmill with fitness/sleep trackers & scales. By the way, you like the trackers? You want to win one? Go to Meanwhile, everyone in the audience is getting one, but Megan is getting the whole package for $800. She can add $25,000 in Punch-a-Bunch. She gets all four from a $32 steam iron, a $130 SodaStream, an $89 air purifier, and a $60 food processor. First hit...$500. She trades that in for... $2500! Not satisfied with that, she trades it in for $1000. Final hit gives her... $500. Well, if it was meant to be...

Patrick gets a $2858 pair of iPhone 6s with service. Next for him, a $3400 refrigerator/freezer and a $2575 set of Gucci accessories. One question, though. Stay... or Switch? He stays.. RIGHT!

Benjamin wins a $1550 electric fireplace and a chance at a Mitsubishi Mirage in Dice Game. First number: 1. He rolls out a 6 (a ringer!), a 3 (higher), a 5 (another ringer!), and a 6 (auto-lower). So we're hoping that the third number is not a 1 or 2. It is... a 5! The price: $16,555.

Megan wins at the Wheel, though. Meanwhile, Maria Marclean scores a $650 double swing AND a $500 bonus. Now let's swing this way for a 3DTV, a leather chair & ottoman, a set of home theater speakers, and a WiiU (everything you need for your own home theatre). All she ahs to do is Take Two to add to $3144. She goes with the TV and the chair. TV... $3000. Chair... $1999. So let's trade the TV for the games. The games are... $550. Too less. You needed to take the chair and the speakers.

Kristin McCurdy goes down and up thanks to a $1620 PC. Hope she likes a journey, because she's going on one for a 2015 DODGE JOURNEY! The game... Lucky Seven. The board has $23,39_. She has $2. She goes with 5... but it was a 1.

Connie has one last shot at greatness with a pair of kayaks. The price: $2160. The winner... with a one-up, Clay Salmon. He can take those kayaks to Costa Rica (6n @ Parador Resort & Spa) if he wins Flip Flop. The wrong price: $7948. He flops to $7984... GOT IT! He's also got a date with Megan in the Showcase.

First up, all things olives wtih a trip to Greece (6n @ the Volcano View Hotel & Villas in Santorini), a pizza oven, and a Fiat 500. Top winner Clay likes olives; he bids $22,000. Next up, James, our newbie from the Land Down Under, offers a set of camping gear, a motorcycle, and a trip to his hometown, Melbourne, Australia (6n).* Megan wants a bid of $25,500. Actual price: $21,515. Actual price of Clay's Showcase... $31,541 to win $41,685!

*it should be noted that this episode was taped well in advance of the hostage situation that plagued Australia earlier this morning.

Jessimae Peluso
Donnell Rawlings
Spike Feresten

It's the last week of new episodes in 2014, and while you were cranking ... something... while riding the train, we were going over the day's viral news in the Rapid Refresh. .... Oh, it was a guitar! That explains it. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #XmasAMovie. Spike leads with 800 to 700 for Jessimae's 700 and Donnell's 600.

Next up, let's play the Mod Squad (user-created content that gives new life to your favorite games) and Stock Stuffers (stock Christmas photo news stories). Tonight's Live Challenge: Cat-ti-tude. A glimpse at Total Cat-ti-tude Magazine from before ICanHazCheezburger. Give us a feature story. Jessimae gets 1000 for this: "Tip of the Month: Place snacks around the house so that when you die alone your fuzzy friends won't eat your corpse right away."

Remix-a-Lot round us out, as we remix Sir Mix-a-Lot with Nicki Minaj. My anaconda don't want Donnell to move onto...

FTW: "My dad found my passive aggressive note that I wrote the toothfairy. It was better than I remembered." Please write a response to this and give Jennifer some closure. The winner: "Dear Jennifer, or J-Lo as you will be known in the future, you better knock off this diva crap, or you'll end up a 3 times divorced 45 year old with a questionable acting resume and a big dumpy ass. Love, Papi." And we give it to... SPIKE!

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

  Congrats to whoever won Fake Off. Meanwhile, Jason and Lan are looking for money. We're gonna have to watch Jason before he gets hip to anything. After the warmup, Jason leads with 75-25.

CUT ROUND: Bangman. After four celebs with four bangs, Jason still leads with 475 to 425 for Lan.

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 Jon eats while watching sports. Our players run the table, leaving Jason in the lead with 675 to 625.

STYLE ROUND: Dryer Liar. Three of our salon regulars have facts, but only one of them is true and worth 100. They skunk that round, so the score remains the same.

THE FINAL CUT: The category: Gorbachev or Hasselhoff? The players have 45 seconds to answer either/or questions with their hand mirrors. Player with the most points gets $5000. Lan got four for 2000, 2625. Jason needed four. He gets... four to win the $5000!

BONUS ROUND: Match five things in a category (in this case: Video Games). If he matches all five, he wins $5000 more, $10,000 total! If not, he gets the Hair Jacked Do of the Day... the Clown. Jason is gonna go for it! Match the character with their games.

  The Captain is looking for the hat trick against...
Cpt. Ryan Pensyl
orig. Shamokin, PA
Army officer
Alysha Rooks
orig. New Orleans
Rex Marzke
user interface designer

Cpt. Pensyl starts with $400 New York in the Movies. At the TV timeout, Rex has the lead with $3600 to $1600 for Rooks. Ryan is on $1200.

Last clue in the round goes to Rooks under $1000 Websites. Leading by $1200, she bets $2000 on this: this literature-based website was named for a title scrivener. "What is Scribd?" No, it was Bartleby, leaving her with $3200 to Rex's $4000. The captain has $2600 and the board to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Pop Culture Relatives?. Rooks finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Parks. She bets $2000 to tie Rex on this: it took workers months in 1880 to transport this 69-foot shaft from a Staten Island dock to Central Park. "What is the Obelisk?" Or Cleopatra's Needle is RIGHT for $10,400! Second Daily Double goes unplayed, as Rex leads with $10,800 to Rooks' $10,400. Ryan has $7400.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Poetry": the narrator mistakes the presence of this title creature for the wind & later calls it Prophet. Correct response: what is "The Raven"?

Rooks is the only one to get it to win $18,412! Cpt. Pensyl leaves with $33,000.

New week on Deal starts off with three people and they are Karen the Cowgirl, Diana the Devil and Benjamin the Bat. They are playing BEAT THE DEALER. In round 1, the top two scorers win $500 and move on. Lowest scores win $100 and sits down. Karen picks F and it's 6. Diana picks D and it's 4. Benjamin picks A and it's 7. Diana is out with $100. Benjamin/Karen have $500 and are now playing for a trip to Aruba for 5N at the Aruba Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino worth $6,486! Benjamin picks B and it's 5. Karen picks H and its 8. Karen has the trip and has $6,986! Benjamin leaves with $500! The numbers left are 1, 2, 3 and 9. Karen can give up her trip(if she wants to) for a shot to win a Hyundai Elantra SE worth $18,060! If she gives it up, she has to assign two for Wayne and one for her. If she beats Wayne, the Hyundai is Karen's. If not, she leaves with nothing. Karen decides to stop. For fun she picks E for Herself which was 2 and C for Wayne...which would have been VERY BAD for Karen as it was an auto-loss for her at 9!

Next Deal involves a couple Ryann/Nathaniel(Ranger/Bear). We have a small box with OUTDOORS or Curtain 3 which says INDOORS. They take outdoors and pass on INDOORS which was new kitchen appliances including refrigerator with water dispenser, microwave, cookware and $500 worth of groceries worth $3,042! Let's add someone to the deal and it's Dulce the Rainbow Blonde. Ryann is out of the deal now. Dulce/Nathaniel can keep OUTDOORS or go for Curtain 2 which says ON THE ROAD! They keep OUTDOORS and pass a pair of Ice Bear Scooters and $1,000 in gas money worth $5,548! Nathaniel is out and Dulce/Ryann can keep OUTDOORS or take the LMAD Envelope which says ON THE WATER. They take the envelope and pass on a Kayaking Package worth $3,070! Individual decisions time. Who takes the envelope and who takes $1,000 in cash? Nathaniel/Ryann take the cash and Dulce keeps the envelope. Dulce wins a ZONK ISLAND TRIP(ZONK)!

Vanessa the Nerd has Curtain 1 and will get a 2-12 word clue based on her dice roll. The game is called "SO MANY WORDS". Vanessa rolls a 7. The clue is "Little Silver Buttons Electronic Fun Games Balls". Will she take the curtain or $100/word($700?). She takes the cash and passes on a new arcade including a Ms.Pac Man/Galaga combo arcade machine/ping pong table/PS4 with 40" LED HDTV worth $4,594! Let's do it again with the King of Spades John. He gets Curtain 3 and a 4 word clue which is "Cushions Sit Yet Move". He passes on $400/Word($1200) to win a REMOTE CONTROL COUCH(ZONK)!

Teri the Hot Dog and Dexter the Pirate are playing the classic 9 checks game. Dexter picks 6 and Teri picks 5. Check 1 was $3,000. Check 2 was $2,500. Check 3 was $2,000. Check 4 was $1,800. Will Teri take her check or take the Big Box? She passes on $1,500 and wins TIFFANY'S LAMPS(ZONK)!. Will Dexter take his check or take Curtain 2? He takes the check and passes on a hot tub worth $5,900! He wins $1,200! 7 was $1,000. 8 was $800 and 9 was $200.

Melinda the Graham Cracker is playing for a Nissan Cube S worth $17,710! She is playing REMEMBER WHEN! She has to match the two movies that premiered in the same calendar year in the US. If Melinda does that she wins the Cube. The movies are BRING IT ON, CLUELESS, THE NUTTY PROFESSOR(Eddie Murphy Version), TOY STORY and THE GREEN MILE. She picks NUTTY PROFESSOR/TOY STORY. Wayne offers a sure thing of a Private Dinner Party from Dine With 9 for 8 people, a $1000 Bloomingdales GC and roses for a year from Organic Bouquet worth $3,200! She goes for the car and Toy Story in 1995. Wayne offers the deal plus $400 for $3,600! She takes the deal and made the right call! Clueless matched Toy Story in 1995. Nutty Professor was 1996, The Green Mile was 2000 and Bring It on was 1999!

Last deal involves Jamal(as Smallie Biggs and was interactive in the last deal). He has a box of $20 Bills. If Jamal can guess the amount within $500, he will win the cash. He guesses $2,500. Will he keep the box of money or go for the small box or $500...$600...He takes the box and passes on his guess which was close...but wrong. The money was $3,340. He wins a pair of diamond earrings from Loris Jewelry worth $2,800!

Who trades for a shot at $21,336? It's Melinda with her dinner party! She picks 2. 1 was a new living room with 50" LED 4K UHDTV worth $6,448! 3 was a suite of Electronics worth $3,150! She wins the Big Deal behind 2 which is a trip to New York City for 3N at the Hotel Elysee AND a trip to Portugal for 7N at the Casa del Calcada along with $5,000 in cash worth $21,336!

  Angela Siener-Williams (Elgin, IL) - Lawyer
Her grandma has been running a dance studio for about 50 years, and she helps out there when not in a courtroom.
(+1): Her best friend, Jen

She gets help from the audience on the 1st question, and gets $7,000 from it! She faces this with $34,000...

Later overshadowed by the much more famous "Just Do It," in 1977, Nike's first tag line was what?
A: Hit the road
B: Run for your life
C: There is no finish line
D: Race yourself

Having no idea, Angela gets help from her best friend. Jen thinks it's A from what she had seen in "Forrest Gump," and she says she's 81.5% sure. Angela trusts her... but it's C! That sends her home with $1,000.

Prince Thomas (Houston, TX)
He is part of a group that does "laughing yoga."
(+1): His wife, Britt

He asks the audience on the 3rd question, and they help him add $10,000 to his bank! He then jumps the 4th, which had $2,000. He gets to this with $40,500 in his bank...

While a picture of his mother hangs in the Mus�e d'Orsay, a small picture of what artist's father is kept in the Freer Gallery of Art's basement?
A: Grant Wood
B: James McNeill Whistler
C: Willem de Kooning
D: John Singleton Copley

Prince is an artist, and he has an answer in mind, but he wants to hear from his wife, who is also an artist. Britt has no clue, though, but she is leaning towards B or D. Prince then decides to walk with $20,250! As for the answer, it's B.
