  According to the show's Facebook page, Brennan is the ninth player this season to win five games. Can he even surpass that?
Brennan Bushee
Malden, MA
operations analyst
Kay Yung
San Diego
Sacha Samotin
Naples, FL

Brennan starts with $200 Bible "B" Boys, finding the Daily Double under $1000. He goes for it on this: this Babylonian is slain the same night as his feast at which Daniel reads the Writing on the Wall. "Who is Belshazzar?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2800! He ends up with $5600 to $3000 for Sacha. Kay has $2000 and the first go in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Human Endeavor. Brennan finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Play Into Film. He bets $3000 on this: Patty Duke & Anne Bancroft re-created their stage roles to make this 1962 film. He blanks on "The Miracle Worker", dropping him to $9000. Kay actually knew that one. Let's see if she knows the other Daily Double under $1600 Human Endeavor. She bets $5000 on this: his 1753 work "Species Plantarum" provided binomial names for all known species of plants. "Who is Carolus Linnaeus?" RIGHT for $12,200! She ends up in the lead with $16,200 to Brennan's $11,800. Sacha's still a factor with $9800.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "The Future of Television": this live-action TV show about a family debuted in 1965 & was set in 1997. Correct response: what is "Lost in Space"? 

Sacha's right to double up. Brennan's also right, but fails to match it. Sacha's your big winner today with $19,600! Lesson learned, Brennan... if you're going to play, play to win. He'll be back, but for now, he leaves with $128,404.

While you were busy completely missing the point of the President saying the you-know-what word on WTF with Marc Maron, we were going over the Internet's hot takes of the weekend. Tonight's #HashtagWars: in honor of musical megashow season, #LameSuperGroups. We end with 700s across the board.

We continue on with Realty Bites (fun with real estate agent headshots) and tonight's Live Challenge, Time of Your Lifetime. Lifetime's new movie "A Deadly Adoption" with Will Ferrell & Kristen Wiig... well, we don't know what to make of it. Did they play it straight? Were they trolling everyone? Now that Lifetime's super serious about casting comedians, audition for the next Lifetime Original Movie (TM). Jason's audition gets him 1000.

Minor League, Majorly Offensive rounds us out, with Caucasian Heritage Night with the Orem Owls. Which was canceled. Sara and Randy tied, so they're both joining Jason in...

FTW: Holly Madison released a new tell-all about life in the Playboy Mansion. Give me a line from the Zillow listing of the Playboy Mansion. The winner: "This amazing Hollywood classic has a two car garage with front entry but is easy to coax into rear entry, velvet curtains that crunch to the touch, and if you lived here you'd be home by now! You would also have anal warts." Proving once again that brevity is not the soul of wit on this show, JASON WINS THE INTERNET!

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

TPIR typically doesn't hold a Finale Week. But if it did, it would be THIS week, as we kick off with Jill Murray, Cristian Epps, Emma Lacey, and Katherine Travan bidding on a MacBook pro with AirPort. The $1568 package goes to Cristian, who can add up to $25,000 on Punch-a-Bunch. He gets hits from a $130 electric wok, a $20 shaver, and a $75 juicer. The first hit... good hit, $1000. He trades that in for... a better hit, $2500. He stops there. The final hit for shiggles... $2500.

Nathan Martin goes down and up thanks to a $1960 pair of watches. Next for him, a $3849 ATV, a $927 set of 3 Coach purses, and a $2529 refrigerator/freezer. One of those is wrong. He takes the purses... $1385 is a win!

Katherine wins a $1209 kayak and a chance at a tablet with Beats headphones... or a Honda Fit... or the spare change collected outside TV City at the end of last night's taping of Celebrity Family Feud. It's Any Number. Four picks in...

CAR: $17,6__
Tablet/Headphones: $8_9
Pig: $_.__

She goes with 2... and wins $829 in things to plug in. The car was $17,643.

Nathan advances to the Showcase. Meanwhile, Michael States takes the hot route to a $610 Xbox One package. He'll play some for-real games in the Bahamas (7n @ Taino Beach Resort & Club) if he hits the Bullseye. Laura Scudder's peanut butter is first. He takes three. Each one is $3.59. Three... BULLSEYE! $10.77!

Emma gets off the schneid with a $525 set of small electrics. Now comes a $2595 sauna, a $3700 3DTV, and the following conundrum: stay or Switch? She switches... bad idea jeans.

Jill has one last chance at greatness with a spinning bike & accessories. The price: $1326. Winner... Charlene Brown. She can spin out in a Nissan Versa Note if she can spin a few Dice rolls her way. First number is 1. She rolls 1 (auto-high), 6 (auto-low), 5 (lower), and 6 (auto-low). So the ONLY THING THAT CAN POSSIBLY GO WRONG is a 6 being in the 10s place. The price... $15,463. Ay, Dios mio...

The second $11,000 spin in two days goes to Michael, who takes on Nathan in the Showcase. First up, have a drink on us with a bar set and trips to New York City (6n @ The French Quarters Guest Apartments) & Australia (6n @ Kewarra Beach Resort & Spa in Cairns). Top winner Michael passes, and Nathan bids $21,212. Michael gets to go on safari in Africa (6n @ Cape Town, ZA) with a Jeep Patriot Sport. He bids $22,500. Actual price: $28,614, a difference of $6114. Actual price of Nathan's Showcase... $24,901! He wins with a difference of $3689! That
gives him a total of $34,624 for the day!

With that, we pass $13 million for the season! Back on Wednesday to begin the countdown to season's end.
