Fifteen teachers started, now only nine remain in the hunt for $100,000 and a guaranteed shot at $250,000 next season in the Tournament of Champions.

Steve Mond
Midvale, UT
9th & 10th grade math teacher; RSL Academy
Scott Montanaro
Portland, OR
history & psychology teacher, Wilson HS
Erika Eason
Derwood, MD
technology teacher, Maret School

It's win or go home as only the winner will get a spot in the final. The other two wins $10,000.

JEOPARDY! ROUND: School of Rock, Stand & Deliver, Dead Poets' Society, Lean on Me, Goodbye Mr. Chip, Blackboard Jumble.

Steve starts with $200 Dead Poets' Society, finding the Daily Double under $600 Stand & Deliver. He wagers the max on this: 1930s Southern governor who said, "We have organized a society... with the motto 'Every man a king'." "Who is Huey Long?" RIGHT for $600! He jets to $6800 to $7000 for Erika. Scott's $1800 gets him the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Life Science Milestones, Character in Broadway Musicals, 10-Letter Words, Super Conductors, "Ed"ucation.

... with $400 Small Countries. He finds the first Daily Double under $800 10-Letter Words. He fronts $3000 on this: portmanteau term for the rules that apply to how one communicates online. "What is netiquette?" That's right, but he blanks to drop to $1200. Steve finds the other under $1200 Super Conductors. He wagers $1500 on this: at a May 7, 1824 premiere, Michael Umlauf wielded the baton but took his temp cues from this man. "Who is Mozart?" No, it was Beethoven, dropping him to $12,900. He ends up with $14,900 to $12,600 for Erika. Scott is in third with $1200 and can spoil. In fact, according to the book...

- Scott wins if... he doubles up while the others bet against each other.
- Erika wins if... she bets $8000 and is correct while Steve is wrong.
- Steve bets $10,301 and is correct.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Cities in Literature": in "Gone with the Wind", Rhett Butler says this city named for a monarch "is the South, only intensified". Correct response: what is Charleston?

Everyone did what they had to... and still lost. Steve wins with $4599. He'll be back on Thursday.

Last week, your live votes (or perhaps the absence thereof) and the judges' scores sent roundball legends Kareem Abdul-Jabbar & Arike Ogunbowale to the showers. Now we're down to six athletes... but by the end of the show, we'll only have THREE dancing for the Mirrorball next week.

This week, the eight athletes will learn one individual dance with their partners, and another for a Ballroom Battle between couples. Guest judging: reigning "Dancing" champion David Ross. #FlyTheW.

LINEUP (with scores from Carrie Ann/David/Len/Bruno)
- Mirai Nagasu & Alan Bersten: QUICKSTEP to "BO$$" by Fifth Harmony (9/9/8/9) - 35 out of 40
- Jennie Finch Daigle & Keo Motsepe: VIENNESE WALTZ to "The Rest of Our Life" by Tim McGraw & Faith Hill (7/8/7/7) - 29
- Chris Mazdzer & Witney Carson - FOXTROT to "I Got Rhythm" by Ray Chew Live (8/9/7/9) - 33
- Tonya Harding & Sasha Farber - RUMBA to "See You Again" by Tyler Ward (8/9/8/8) - 33
- Adam Rippon & Jenna Johnson - CONTEMPORARY to "O" by Coldplay (10/10/9/10) - 39
- Josh Norman & Sharna Burgess: CONTEMPORARY to "Stand by Me" by Bootstraps (9/9/9/9) - 36

Next up, the Ballroom Battles! Wnners get 2 extra points added to their total. The judges will determine who wins the battles. If the judges deadlock, then the decision will be made by the voting public.

CHA CHA to "Dance" by DNCE - Tonya/Sasha vs. Jennie/Keo.
- Carrie Ann: TONYA/SASHA
- Public: JENNIE/KEO (60%)

JIVE to "Johnny B. Goode" by Chuck Berry - Adam/Jenna vs. Mirai/Alan.
- Carrie Ann: ADAM/JENNA
- Public: ADAM/JENNA (64%)

SALSA to "WTF (Where They From)" by Missy Elliott featuring Pharrell Williams - Josh/Sharna vs. Chris/Witney.
- Carrie Ann: CHRIS/WITNEY
- David: JOSH/SHARNA (even though he held up the wrong placard, the score submitted to the producer is final and binding)
- Public: CHRIS/WITNEY (55%)

We've danced twice, and now it's time for the hard part. As always, half of the score from the percentile of the public vote, the other half from the judges.

- Adam & Jenna
- Tonya & Sasha
- Josh & Sharna

And the other three couples have come so far only to come so far. The final Leaderboard of the season...

- 41 - Adam/Jenna
- 38 - Josh/Sharna
- 35 (TIE) - Mirai/Alan (ELIMINATED Week 3), Tonya/Sasha
- 33 - Chris/Witney
- 29 - Jennie/Keo

We're dancing for a Mirrorball in the finale next week!

Yep, looks like this week is friends & family on the panel.

ROUND 1: Lawrence wins the toss, so he gets Jon, Louie, and Jodi. He only manages to capture Jodi for $100. Morgan, on the other hand, gets Jackee, Byron, and Gabriel in every way, shape, and form that someone can be gotten on this show to lead, $300 to $100.

ROUND 2: After the switch, Morgan gets the only question right - to Louie, the Daily Mail says that the human brain is still active for everal minutes after the heart stops beating - to pad her lead, $500 to $100.

ROUND 3: Lawrence leads off, but Morgan puts the game out of reach to win, $800 to $700.

- Q1: According to Webster's Dictionary, a person who hates marriage is... an atheist, a misogamist, or married? She says "misogamist", and we see another.
- Q2: According to MSN, the number 1 reason couples stop making love is... they're too tired, they're too busy, they're too distracted or she left him 8 years ago? She says they're too busy... but they're too tired. No one's too tired for $800 in found money, though.

Raine & Andrew

Season 2 of the show is now casting at, so before you snag this week's 60 Second Recipe, maybe put in an application (C-Note: though I'm not sure if they accept US candidates, Canadians are more than free to apply provided they have a child aged 8-15)

QUESTION ROUND 1: Kylee & Sandy will ask each of the kids two questions worth 5 and 10 points if the parents match them. Bella & Sasha have 15, Raine & Andrew have 5, and Nicholas & Jeremy have a whole bake-off to sit at their table and think about what they've done. Speaking of which...

BAKE OFF: Today's kitchen is open for business... and we're making carrot cake muffins in 60 seconds. Everyone has sugar, flour, and of course, shredded carrots... as well as some ... other ingredients designed for maximum comedic effect. The parents will have to take big bites at the end of the show to determine who baked what. The recipes are available for you at home by visiting We'll see what the kids come up with later on... While they're baking, let's go to the parents.

QUESTION ROUND 2: The kids are in isolation while the adults get asked two questions worth 15 and 20 points if the kids match them. Bella & Sasha are still perfectly perfect with 50, while Nicholas & Jeremy sweep the round for 35. Raine & Andrew... stuck on 5.

BAKE OFF TASTE TEST: The parents will have 30 seconds to stuff their faces with their muffins and determine which dish belongs to their kid. The final match is worth 50 points.

- Andrew says #1 is Raine's... and it's raining 50 to take the lead with 55!
- Jeremy says #2 is Nicholas'... It's #3.
- Sasha thinks #3 is Bella's for the perfecto... it's #2, and its RAINE & ANDREW WITH THE COMEBACK WIN!

PRIZE WHEEL: Among the prizes on the wheel today: a trip, and prize packages from Lootcrate, Dave & Buster's, Scene, Xbox, and Spinmaster. The wheel must make one complete revolution. They win... movies for a year from Scene Points!

New week on Deal starts off with Farmer Michelle. She is playing for Kitchen Appliances with dishwasher and range along with Tomorrow's Kitchen GC worth $2,998 AND an Almost Heaven Spa and hammock along with Aloe Glow Water worth $6,466 AND a Nissan Versa Note worth $16,680! The game is RACE TO THE FINISH. We have a standard deck of 52 cards spread out on the table in front of Michelle. She will pick cards and hope for certain suits. Michelle needs 5 hearts to win the car, 4 spades to win the Sauna and 3 diamonds to win the kitchen. Michelle wants to avoid 3 clubs(ZONKS). If Michelle wins a prize and wants to play for another, she is committed to either winning that prize or zonking out. If she wins a 2nd prize, she has another decision to make. Michelle starts with the Queen of Diamonds, and the 9 of clubs for the first zonk. Next is the 5 of diamonds and the Queen of Clubs. Michelle passes on $300 to pick...the 4 of spades, and the 2 of clubs for the 3rd and final zonk. She is OUT.

Let's try and do better with Carla the old school TV. She has the Big Box with a prize with 3 wheels. Carla can take the box or $200/wheel...$300/Wheel. She takes $900 and passes on a HELICOPTER CAR(ZONK)! We need a couple and they are Madalyn/James(Bear/Bee). They get $500 and can earn $1,500 more by playing "My Husband sounds like a...." James will give a sound only clue to Madalyn of a person/place/thing/animal. Madalyn will be blindfolded and will have one guess per clue. For every one, she gets right, they will earn $500(up to $1,500 total). They get PIG, HEARTBEAT, and TEA KETTLE. Madalyn/James have $2,000 and can keep that or buy Curtain 1. They keep the money and pass on a trip to Costa Rica for 6N at the Flamingo Beach Resort and Spa worth $6,827!

Kathryn the Karate champ(cancer survivor). We have a new game called THROWBACK FOR CASH. We have four items on the board: SLINKY, FORD MUSTANG, LAVA LAMP, and DIGITAL WRIST WATCH. If Kathryn can tell Wayne which decade all four items debuted nationally in the US, she will win $10,000. This is an all or nothing game - if she is wrong once, she is OUT. She says 1940s for the SLINKY, 1950s for the MUSTANG, 1970s for the LAVA LAMP and 1980s for the DIGITAL WRIST WATCH. We find out that the SLINKY did debut in the 1940s. Wayne offers a sure thing of a home theater with 65" LED HDTV, a console table from Interior Illusions and streaming box worth $4,010! She goes for the cash and was wrong on everything else. The Mustang debuted in the 1960s(1964 to be exact), as well as the Lava Lamp. The Digital Wrist watch debuted in the 1970s. She gets $100 for getting one right.

Wilcox the Chef and Christine the Jester(UCLA Gymnastic Team Member). They each get $800. We have three items - a red box, a green box and the mini-curtain. Each sells for $400. Who buys the Red Box? No one buys it and passes on a Nikon 24MP DSLR digital camera with lens worth $3,050! Who buys the green box? They both buy COTTON CANDY BOOTS(ZONK!). Who buys the mini-curtain? No one buys a new scooter from SSR Motorsports with helmet worth $3,784! Who keeps their cash or who buys the LMAD Envelope? Christine is the only one who buys a LMAD COMIC BOOK(ZONK). Christine gets $100 for her gymnastic routine!

Let's play PAIR-A-DICE with Lauren the Stegosaurus. We have 8 boxes and 6 have good die. 2 have zonk die. Match 4s and Lauren will get $400. 5s will give her $500. 6s will give her $600. If Lauren can earn the $1,500 before hitting the 2 zonk die, we will add the keys to a Subaru Impreza Sedan worth $20,215! Her first pick is 4 and the ZONK die. She passes on $200 and picks 7. It's a 4. 2 gives her the 2nd ZONK DIE.

Last deal involves Randi the Loofah. She can take one swipe from the LMAD ATM or Curtain 2. She takes the Curtain and passes on $2,200 from the ATM. She wins a TON OF DIRTY LAUNDRY(ZONK)! Nurse Mary has the same deal. She can take the Swipe or take the Big Box? She takes the cash and passes on a trip to Miami Beach for 4N at the Gates Hotel South Beach with Skyway Luggage worth $4,828! Mary wins $200.

Who trades for a shot at $22,957? James/Madalyn trade their $2,000 in cash!

They pick 2. 3 was a new BBQ worth $2,432. 2 was a new living room from worth $7,440! 1 was a frip to the South Pacific at the Little Polynesian Resort in the Cook Islands AND EVERYTHING IN THE DEAL! The BBQ, the Living Room and the trip were worth $22,957!
