  Having had his turn as a substitute teacher, Jon Gabrus is now entering the field of salon management, and if you walk into any salon that he manages, he could end up paying you $10,000!

Tonight's first contestant is Jody, who gets warmed up before she meets her stylist. Her opponent: Nathan, who is already losing by 50. Each player gets one of the two stylists, who will keep the questions coming.... right before they meet up again and Jon springs the surprise. Right now, Jody leads with 50 to Nathan's 0. But there's more games to be had and more money to be won. One person will get $5000 and a shot at $10,000 or... a haircut so bad that they're going to want to put a sack over their head. We call that... "hair jacked."

CUT ROUND: Mirror Mirror. The players are given two clues in the mirror. They have to come up with the correct answers, all of which are worth 50, all while your stylist continues to work. You have a minute! Nathan gets four for 200. Jody gets seven for 350, giving her 400 and the lead.

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 places I've unexpectedly woke up. Nathan closes the gap with 400 to Jody's 500.

STYLE ROUND: Spinning Back in Time. Each right answer is worth 100, but you'll have to spin (in your chair) to get the category. After that round, we're tied up at 500.

THE FINAL CUT: The category: Dated or Related? The players have 45 seconds to answer either/or questions with their hand mirrors. Player with the most points gets $5000. Jody gets 7 for 3500 points for 4000 total. Nathan gets all nine for 5000 and the game for $5000! Which is his to keep.

BONUS ROUND: Match five things in a category (in this case: fast food). If he gets all five, he wins $5000 more, $10,000 total! If not, he gets the Hair Jacked Do of the Day... a pimpin' Mohawk. The answer: Cheesy Gordita Crunch, Southern Style Crispy Chicken Sandwich, Bacon Insider, Double Stack, Double Down. He goes with Taco Bell, McDonalds, Jack in the Box, KFC, Wendy's.... And he needed to switch the last two. He gets $5000... but he's also getting hair jacked!

In the nightcap, Cuauhtemoc leads over Katy 600 to 575. After the Final Cut (Bond Girl or Bratz Doll), Katy got five for 3075. Cuauhtemoc got... 2 for 1600. Katy wins the $5000! But will she double it in the Bonus (The Academy Awards) or get the Fourth of July? Nope. She is taking the money and running. But what about Cuauhtemoc? Will he get "two-faced" for $2500? YEP.

Dannah Phirman
Alison Becker
Rob Corddry

While you were wondering what the sign-language interpreter was saying during Bill de Blasio's Ebola presser, we were talking about what happened over the last week. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #CrappyHalloweenCostumes. Alison & Rob are tied at 600 to Dannah's 300.

Next up, let's play Black and WTF: Halloween Edition and Major League Fails. Tonight's Live Challenge: It's the Great PumpkinGate! Big Pumpkin is trying to squelch a New Hampshire pumpkin festival gone terribly wrong. Report another shocking news cover-up AS the reporter in the video. Dannah gets the 1000. from "But just how 'never-ending' are the breadsticks? My shocking expose of the Concord Olive Garden, tonight at 11!".

BuzzSpeed: Halloween Edition rounds us out. We give a trick to Rob Corddry, who by 50 points is getting the red light.

FTW: According to, NYC rats are infected with 18 new-to-human viruses. Write the name and symptoms of a virus that the crew will most definitely bring back from the Big Apple when they go to tape there next week! The winning ailment: "When people RSVP "no" to all your parties since you moved out of the city, it's a condition called #SarsNotSars." And the lady of the evening for Monday... ALISON BECKER! She wins the Internet!

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

Lisa & Rachel
hockey buddies
Brian & Jon
private chauffeurs
Angela Kinsey
"Hot Wives of Orlando"
Vivica A. Fox
"Mr. Box Office"

Round 1: Lisa & Rachel start things off with "There Can Be Only One" (famous dudes known by one name), getting five for $500. Brian & Jon are left with "The Glee Club" (guest stars on "Glee"), tying it up with five for $500.

Round 2: Brian gives on "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" (famous villains), getting seven for $1400 more, $1900 total. Rachel gives on "Year of the Wheel!" (born the same year "Wheel of Fortune" debuted - 1975), getting only Tiger Woods for $200 more, $700 total.

In the race to $3000, we have "I'm With the Band" (folks who've acted in other's music videos). Brian & Jon have been on it all day to win, $3000 to $1700.

... which is theirs to keep, but now let's see if they can turn that into $20,000 in the final round. Brian gets seven of the final 10, leaving Jon to get the final three in 30 seconds. He gets "Fifty Shades of Grey" and The Smithsonian... but misses Ronald Reagan.

In the nightcap (featuring Chris Kattan & Karina Smirnoff), Italian friends Jenny & Patricia sweep round 3 to beat brothers Sam & Ben, $3000 to $800. But the ladies can only come up with six.

1. Complain/Nag/Argue68
2. Talk too much 12
3. Say "No" 12

The Motts took control on all the surveys, but a logical steal on the last survey getting #4 after only #1 was given, sent the game to sudden death.

Sudden death question: Name a foreign language many Americans learn in school. Gardners get in first and win it with Spanish (79)

Kristi & Lorie will attempt Fast Money. Kristi did very well with her answers with 142. Lorie didn't need to think twice with her answers, and did it on her last answer, getting just enough to win them their $20,000.

Fast Money #1 answers
- Tell me the age when a girl might be invited to her first slumber party: Age 10 (Kristi)
- Something you associate with a frog: Warts (Lorie)
- A fruit that begins with the letter P: Pineapple
- Something campers might take with them for emergencies: First Aid kit (Kristi)
- A sport where the referee could get hurt: Football (Kristi)

In the nightcap: returning champions the Reed family (with Charlie now on crutches) will now take on the Kelly family, with Ally as a former American Gladiator winner. Also, the show had two Emmys on the podium...why? Congrats, Steve (50); 2X (25); Emmy Winner (25).

The Kellys got in on the last survey with the question that was not read entirely. Only the #1 answer was given, after a miss steal by the Reeds, but the game went to sudden death.

Sudden death question: If a big snake got loose in a pet shop, name something it might eat.
Reeds get in first and won it with a Mouse/Rat (66).

Rebecca & Patsy try Fast Money again. Rebecca did well getting 84. Patsy could only get four answers in time, not thinking of other businesses other that a restauarant. Her best answer was holding on her hat on a windy day, but they've blown down too early, now having a four-day total of $21,815 and a win on Tuesday's show will get them a new Ford Fusion Hybrid.

  Matthew is looking for the elusive hat-trick to start the week.
Matthew LaMagna
Arlington, VA
digital consultant

Dori Phillips
Salem, MA
IRS agent
Bill Albertini
Toledo, OH
professor of English

As we see, the moustache, as you voted... is gone.

Matthew starts with $200 Stock Up on Candy, finding the Daily Double under $1000 US Cities. He's going for it on this: British general John Forbes named this city for a certain William the Elder. "Where is Williamsport?" No, it was Pittsburgh, leaving him with zero at the break. He ends the round with $1200. With Dori out in front with $5800 to Bill's $1800, the champion will start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Pop "C"ulture. Bill finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Last Complete Novel. He fronts $3000 on this: "Command Authority" (2013). "Who is... Clancy? Tom Clancy?" RIGHT for $7200! Matthew finds the other under $1600 The Congress of Vienna. He bets $1900 on this: the Congress redrew the map of Europe; Prussia gained much of this area centered on a river, including Bonn. "What is the Rhineland?" Right for $3900 to end the round to Dori's $5000, but with $14,800, it's Bill's game to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Rock & Roll": a restaurant chain took its name from a British band's fourth chart-topper, this 1967 song. Correct response: what is "Ruby Tuesday"?

Bill wins it with $19,550. Matthew leaves with $35,800.

New week on Deal starts off with Melissa as the Lobster in the pot. She is playing SPELL ME A DEAL. The board starts off with A. Will she keep A or the Small Box? Leftovers go to Jennifer the Boxer. Melissa takes the board. Jennifer takes the box over $500 and wins a new laptop and 16MP Fuji X-A1 digital camera worth $2,399! The board now becomes AN for Melissa. Melissa can keep the board or go for Curtain 1. Leftovers go to Isaac the Nerd. Melissa goes for the Curtain and wins a DOUBLE DECKER CAR(ZONK)! The board is now ANT for Isaac. Will Isaac take the board or $1,000? He takes the $1,000 and along with $100 more for his bow tie! Isaac passes on a trip to Antigua for 6n at the St. James Club worth $8,502!

We need a couple for the next deal and they are Lynette/Wilmer(Google Map Points A/B)! They are playing for a 2014 Honda Civic LX Sedan worth $19,180! They are playing MOVIN ON UP. They have to get from the row of 6 to the row of 2 by avoiding zonks. If they get to the row of 2 and pick win, they will win the Civic and all the cash they gathered along the way. In the row of 6 they start with 2 and it's $400. They move on up to the row of 5 and pick 3 and it's $800. They have $1,200 and move on up to the row of 4 and pick 1 and it's $1,500. They have $2,700 and take the money! For fun, they would have picked 3 and $2,000 and then the final row of 2 they pick 1 and would have been ZONKED!

Who needs to be pampered? April the Marionette gets a spa day for 2 worth $1, far. Will she keep the Spa Day and what else is with it or take the Big Box? She takes the Big Box and passes on the spa day and $3,000 in cash! That deal was worth $4,610! She wins SHAG CARPET APPLIANCES(ZONK!) but gets $100 for her work with autistic kids. Marshall the athlete picks 7 from 0-9. Wayne produces an envelope with a $100 bill inside. For every 7 on the 8 digit serial number, Marshall will get $1,000. Will he take the bill or Curtain 1? He takes the money and passes on a new Honda CBR500 motorcycle worth $5,999! His bill had the number 49993979 for $1,000!

Kassandra the Nerd has the small box and will get a clue from Jonathan/Wayne via die roll. She will get 2-12 words and gets 8 words and they are: "Water sun those are things you'll maybe find". She passes on $100/word or $800 for a trip to Belize at the Xanadu Island Resort for 5N worth $4,507! Let's do it again with Alina the Disco Diva and we have Curtain 2. She gets a 6 word clue and it is "Moving, resting, going, sleeping, waking, watching". Alina takes $600 over the prize and it was a REMOTE CONTROL BED(ZONK!)

Grandma Deborah can win a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan worth $18,775 by playing JUST THE FACTS. We have two years and three facts. The years are 1957 and 1965. The facts are: ORVILLE REDENBACHER LAUNCHES HIS FIRST POPCORN BRAND, RED-BOW; "THE CAT IN THE HAT" BY DR. SEUSS IS PUBLISHED and FIRST LAVA LAMP KNOWN AS LAVA LITE, IS SOLD IN THE U.S. Deborah has to match one fact to one year. If she does, Deborah will win the Jetta. Deborah says the Lava Lamp in 1965. Wayne offers a sure thing and its a new washer/dryer worth $2,998 from Pacific Kitchen and Home not to go for the car. She goes for the car. Cat in the Hat was 1957. Wayne re-offers the deal plus $500 not to go for the car. She goes for the car and....IS RIGHT! Orville Redenbacher introduced his popcorn in 1969!

Last deal involves Natalie the Gymnast who is playing CASH AND PRIZES. Will she take at least $100 in cash or a prize? She goes for the prize and passes on $1,000. She wins the small box which was BACON JEWELRY(ZONK). Will she take at least $300 in cash or another prize?

She goes for Curtain 3 and wins a trip to Toronto for 4N at the Extended Stay America Hotel and $500 GC worth $5,874!

Who trades for a shot at $37,010? It's Natalie with her just won Toronto trip! She picks 3. 1 was a new dining room worth $6,000. Her door was a new home theater including 55" HDTV with home theater audio worth $2,650! The Big Deal was behind 2 and it was a $37,010 Lexus IS250!

*totals are based on the MSRP of the prizes and rounded to the nearest dollar.
Brand new (albeit abbreviated) week on the Price starts with Krystiianna Langston, Michael Weinberger, Ann Luers, Jaden Royal, and a pair of iPod touches wtih JBL headphones. The $1398 package goes to Ann, who can bask in the sights and sounds of NYC (6n @ Omni Berkshire Place) if she wins Squeeze Play.

9 9 1 5 5

She pulls the 9 from the center... and $9155 is a WINNER!

Michael gets a $1325 ruby/cubic zirconia bracelet and a shot at something else that shines like a diamond, a Mazda 2 Sport in One Away. The price is not $27,651. Is it $18,562? He gets one... two... and that's it. He changes it to $18,740.... but it was $16,742.

Eric Boehme wins a $910 table tennis, but how will he do with a pair of purses, a touchscreen laptop, a washer/dryer, and a pizza oven? Let's play the Race Game! He goes $1300, $750, $3349, $2498... NOTHING. He swaps the first two... and then swaps the second two... THAT'S A WIN!

But Ann would win the first half at the Wheel. Stephanie Christopher would win a $510 Nintendo WiiU package. She'd like to take it home in a Toyota Prius, and she will if she wins Grocery Game. On special... lemons! We have lemon creme Oreos, Martinelli's sparkling lemonade, Yoplait lemon cream pie yogurt, Lemi Shine detergent pods, and Brach's lemon drops. She goes six of the cookies. Each one... $3.99. Half a dozen is too much...

Krystiianna scores a $735 hammock, but she can't lie about with an HDTV marked at $1300 and a home gym marked at $2729. Those are bargain prices, because this is Bargain Game. She goes for the TV. The home gym is $3229, a difference of $500. The TV is... $2300 for a game winning difference of $1000!

Jaden gets one last chance, but he also gets one last bid on a set of cookware. The price: $1995. The winner... Carlos Salazar. Now he'll try to punch-out $25,000 on Punch-a-Bunch. He gets three smashes with a $185 water carbonator, a $63 breakfast center, and a $92 blender. First hit... $250. He trades that in for... $500. He trades that in for... $1000.

Krystiianna meets Ann in the Showcase. First, we're making memories with a pair of clip-on digital cameras, a Triumph America LT motorcycle, and a trip to Bali. Top winner Ann passes, and Krystianna bids $23,000. Ann gets trips to Portland (6n) & Croatia (6n @ the Luxe Boutique Hotel in Split) and a Kia Soul. She bids $28,750. Actual price: $30,822, a difference of $2072. Actual price of Krystiianna's Showcase... $23,000..... 849! She wins it with a difference of $849! All in all, a good day for Krystianna, who wins $30,113.

  Laura Spadanuta (Park Slope, NY)
She wants to win the million dollars for her dog.
(+1): Her sister-in-law, Jean

She asks the audience on the 1st question, and that gets her just $100. She then jumps the 4th, which had $500. She has a total of $63,100 banked going into this...

[Q10] ($5,000)
In honor of the man who helped bring down Slobodan Milosevic, which of the following has become a common boys' name in Kosovo?
A: Tonibler
B: Gergeboosh
C: Poppepaul
D: Jacksherack

Laura is thinking A, but she's also considering C. She brings down Jean, who mentions that John Paul II was Pope during the late '90s. So now they're leaning more toward A than before, but in the end, Laura walks with $31,550! As for the answer, it is indeed A.

Since time is running out for today, Brenda Williams (Windsor, CT) is picked from the audience to play for $1,000...

Now an indispensable part of a woman's wardrobe, which of these accessories were called "indispensables" in 19th-century England?
A: Sunglasses
B: Handbags
C: Belts
D: Scarves

Brenda is thinking B... and she's right for $1,000!
