You're probably asking yourself,
"Self... what could be better than cars?" How about a pair of soap
stars modeling cars... And how about if those cars were actually
SUPERSTAR DREAM CARS?! It's TPIR Dream Car Week once again, and
we've got we're-not-married-but-we-play-it-on-TV Matthew Atkinson
& Hunter King from "next door" (Y&R) helping out!
First up, though, we have Jana Hambruck, Angela Bacon, Katrina
Larkin, and Jacob Caughey bidding on a pair of Microsoft Surfaces.
The $898 tablet PCs go to Angela, who can add on an ATV and a
washer/dryer if she knows whether or not to Switch?. The ATV is
marked at $3849. The washer/dryer, $2748. She decides to give the
models a break and stay. ... GOOD CALL!
Jacob, a recent US Army retiree, falls in line for a $1210 set of
jewelry, but that shine pales in comparison to today's Dream
Car... A PORSCHE CAYENNE! The game's a bit of a challenge, though.
It's Lucky Seven. First number: 5. First guess is 7... BINGO!
Second guess is 4... AND ANOTHER! Third guess is 4... It's 6 for a
dollar. SO... Here's where we stand. The board has $57,46_. Jacob
has $6. He needs $1 for the car, so he can miss this by $5 either
way. The last guess is purely academic. He goes with 5. ... Not
only did he win... it's THE RIGHT NUMBER! $57,465 WORTH OF PORSCHE
FOR A DOLLAR!
Otis Butler III is the III up on stage with a $1400 set of
luggage. Surely he should pack it for somewhere, but where? How
about Boston (6n @ Onyx Hotel)? He's got Shell Game. He gets two
guesses from a $30 ice cream maker and a $40 hair remover. He goes
into the center. So if the ball is on the periphery... well, we
won't think about that. The ball is... on the periphery. Shell #4.
Angela wins $1000 from the Big Wheel. Meanwhile Fredwayna Hawkins
wins a $1598 patio heater from the next one-bid. Hopefully she can
complete the party with a barbecue island in Bonkers. The price is
not $6745. Pretty tough set up... but not impossible. She nails it
on the third try with high-low-high-high! It was $9359!
Katrina scores a $520 WiiU package and a shot at, not THE dream
car, but A dream car, a Mini Cooper Roadster M6 convertible in
Pass the Buck. She gets two picks from the Pass the Buck board.
The first pick is 5... $5000. She tries for the car behind #2...
and LOSES EVERYTHING. The car was next door to the money, #6.
Jana has one last shot at it with a set of BCBG shoes. The price:
$895. The winner.. JANA! Now can she keep it moving with a
spinning bike and a MacPro in Double Cross?
2 3 1 8 6 9
1 4 3
4 5 0
She goes with $1745 for the spin bike and $4378 for the Mac... GOT
Fredwayna would meet Angela in the Showcase, though. First up,
something for your inner biker - trips to Thailand (6n @ Twinpauls
Phuket) & Morocco (6n @ Casablanca) AND a Honda Shadow Phantom.
Top winner Angela bids $26,000. Fredwayna gets ... more shinies...
an HDTV, a trip to Rio (6n), and a Bowrider ski boat. She bid
$31,000. Actual price: $37,740, a difference of $6740. Actual
price of Angela's Showcase... $29,981! She wins with a difference
of $3981. And it says a lot when you have $38,476 worth of prizes,
and you're not the big winner.
Welcome to Dream Car Week, friends.

Comedy Central: 12:01a/11:01p
Host: Chris Hardwick
While you were out taking selfies
at New York's Comic-Con, we were talking about everything else in
Rapid Refresh. Tonight's #HashtagWars in honor of National Dessert
Day and baby shower cake fails... it's #RuinADessert. Jen leads
with 900 to the others' 700 a pop.
For act 2, we have Survival of the
Dickish (from the animalsbeingdicks Tumblr) and Low Cost Cosplay:
New York Comic-Con edition. Today's Live Challenge: Killer Clowns
from Central California. Trending on Facebook: a mysterious man
dressing as a clown. The police of Wasco... not happy. But what
should their town motto be? Braunger gets the 1000 from this:
"Welcome to Wacky Wasco, the home of hellish anxiety, dread, and
horrifying clowns that will kill you! Honestly, in this day and
age, wouldn't you rather see it coming?"
Next up, Pls RT. No thank you, Jo
Koy. RED LIGHT!
FTW: NBC Connecticut reports that a
local woman is in trouble for calling 911 162 times for
complaining about... first world problems. Write the first line of
call #163. The winning call: "Hello, 911? Just calling to say I'm
NOT gonna call you anymore because I met someone. But he hasn't
called. Should I call him or wait 3 days?" And that's good enough
to give JEN KIRKMAN the Internet for the next 23.5 hours!
Remember, today's funny becomes
tomorrow's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.
Celebrity Name Game
by Chico Alexander
Syn: check listings
Host: Craig Ferguson
Jessica & Kelsey
sisters/roommates from Orlando
Megan & Betsy
friends who met at a park
"Mike & Molly"
Round 1: Jessica & Kelsey start
with "You're So Vain" (famous folks on the cover of Vanity Fair),
getting six for $600. Megan & Betsy are left with "Dr. Seuss Ain't
Got Nothing on Us" (celebrities who who've written a children's
book), getting four for $400.
Round 2: As we swap stars, Betsy
gives on "Mellow Yellow" (characters who are yellow), getting
five more for $1000, $1400 total. Kelsey gives on "Made in
the Motor City"
(famous folks associated with Detroit), getting five for $1000
more, $1600 total.
In the race to $3000, we have "Nice
Hose!" (people Craig thinks would make good firefighters).
The $700 answer will decide the game. Betsy buzzes in with "The
Big Bad Wolf"... and wins it for Megan & Betsy, $3300 to $2500!
... which is theirs to keep, but
now let's see if they can turn that into $20,000 in the final
round. Betsy gets seven of the final 10, leaving Megan to get the
final three in 30 seconds. Tootsie Roll, Tony the Tiger and Rocky
Balboa for the money in half the time!
In the nightcap (featuring "Mike &
Molly's" Katy Mixon & "Extra" host Mario Lopez), Molly & Jodi
(mother/daughter) beat out Theo & BJ (college roomies) $3100 to
$2000. In the Bonus Round, Molly & Jodi combine for eight.

Returning champions the Mickelsen
family will now play against the Gallman family.
Jay, Kim, Erik, Heather, Kris
St. Paul, MN
Cameron, Alexis, Shae, Brandon,
SINGLE: 100 married men: something
you wish you had the nerve to tell your wife. (Both families were
totally stumped on the #1 answer.)
1. Stop spending $ 18
5. Get a job 13
2. Yes, you're fat 17 6. Ugly/Ho-ish clothes11
3. More sex/Spank me14 7. Driving sucks 5
4. Get lost/Bye 14
SINGLE: something a cheap couple might ask guests to bring to the
5. Plates/Silverware 4
2. Food/Cake 27 6.
3. Cash 11
7. Rice to throw 3
4. Flowers/Decoration 7
DOUBLE: some people have a horse face. What other farm animal
might a person's face resemble?
1. Pig 66
5. Goat 4
2. Cow 16
6. Duck 2
3. Sheep 4
7. Mule/Donkey 2
4. Chicken 4
TRIPLE: something you hang up.
1. The phone 54
2. Clothes/Coat/Hat 38
3. A towel 4
4. A picture/frame 3
The last survey was the big difference, as the Gallmans had to get
the #4 answer to naming something you hang up. There was the
phone, clothes/coat/hat and a towel and they knew that the last
answer was a picture/frame, to win the game.
Alexis & Shae will now attempt their luck in Fast Money. Alexis
did well with some of her answers, as she got 88. Shae had too
many light answers before recovering at the end, which wasn't
enough, finishing with a total of $895.
Fast Money #1 answers
- A round food that makes you rounder if you eat too much of it:
- A word that rhymes with vote: Note
- Something people shove a coin into: Vending machine
- The last time you really got really angry, who were you angry
at?: Spouse/Mate (Alexis)
- Give me the latest hour where it's OK to call someone on a
weeknight: 9:00 (Shae)
The nightcap features 2 new
families: The Griers & the Hagemanns. The Griers would win the
game after making the sweep on the last survey.
Name something a guy might bring on a date to save money.
1. Coupon 61
2. Food/Dinner 23
3. Wine/Booze 12
4. Gift/Reward card 3
Angie & Stephanie will play Fast Money. Angie could get only four
answers in the time limit, but two answers helped well to get her
87. Stephanie started slow thinking a husband sleeps more since
wedding day after fatter was taken. That faulter may have proved
costly, despite all #1 answers were given out. They only get $925.

Shane gets to defend for the first
time against two big city players...
PhD student in physics
Shane starts with $200 Food &
Drink. Dan finds the Daily Double under $600 Questionable Grammar
in Lyrics. He makes it true on this: "Every little thing she does
is magic, everything she do just turns me on" as an issue with
agreement of these 2 elements. "What are the subject &...
predicate?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $4000! He ends the round with $5200
to Shane's $2400. Amanda, who's out of the hole but with zero,
will go first in Double Jeopardy!...
... with $400 The Cast of Fast
Times at Ridgemont High. Shane finds the first Daily Double
under $2000 International Trade. He bets the level on this: per US
DOT figures, this Central American nation has the largest
registered merchant fleet in the world. "What is Costa Rica?" No,
it's my ancestral homeland of Panama, leaving him with $4400. He
tries again with $1200 A Confederacy of Dunces. He tries $2000
again, and here's Jimmy. "Union soldiers found Robert E. Lee's
handwritten plans wrapped around 3 cigars & lying in a field east
of Sharpsburg, Maryland, 4 days before this bloody 1862 battle."
"What is Gettysburg?" No, it was Antietam, leaving him with $7600.
Still leading, but only just. He ends with that much, but Dan has
$10,400 to Amanda's $2000.
FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Sports
Figures": he was featured on the September 22, 1947
cover of Time with the caption "He and the Boss Took a
Chance". Correct response: who was Jackie Robinson?
The guys were in the right
ballpark... literally... and ended up in a tie at $5600, so Dan
will return with $5600, while Shane returns with $24,001 for two.
And Amanda goes home with $2000.
