Host: Chris Hardwick
Alaska Thunder**** 5000
While you were busy canceling any
plans to visit Cuba any time soon because the president doesn't
like his predecessor... Beyonce gave birth to TWINS! And here to
report: three all-stars from "RuPaul's Drag Race". Tonight's #HashtagWars:
#AddAWomanImproveASong. Shared points put the panel at 600-700-800
going into the first break.
In act 2, we get to play Intermission Impossible (fails on the
stage) and tonight's Live Challenge, Apologize and Dolls. Building
on the last game, apologize to your audience for the theatre for
the worst show-stopping problem you can imagine. Alaska gets 1000
from "A funny thing happened... to the lead of 'A Funny Thing
Happened on the Way to the Forum'... on the way to the theatre
this evening. He had a massive heart attack."
On our way to FTW, we find Re Pub's Drag Race. Katya, despite
giving a clutch answer to the final question, is told to sashay,
FTW: low-brow T-shirt with "We came for the The War Against
Terrorism." Think about that. Come up with your own acronym-based
novelty T-shirt. The winner: "I only drink Certified Unpasteurized
Milk"... which is the cleanest we can present it. The winner:
ALASKA THUNDER**** 5000!
Another set of comics clown on the news tomorrow. Continue the game

Host: Alex Trebek with Jimmy McGuire, Kelly Miyahara & Sarah
Peter ran a clinic last Friday. How
long into the week will he fare?
PhD student in linguistics
JEOPARDY! ROUND: Puzzlers, Who They
Served; Rock, Paper, Scissors; Names You Should Know, House Full
of Lit, The Fight of the Century
Peter starts with $200 Puzzlers. At the TV timeout, Jeremy is in
front with $3600 to Peter's $2200. Barbara has $600.
Peter finds the Daily Double under $1000 Who They Served. He's
going for it on this: in 1972 Nixon named L. Patrick Gray to
replace a very big name as the head of this agency. "What is the
CIA?" Nope, it's the other one, the FBI. He recovers to $1800 to
Jeremy's $6000. Barbara, stuck for $200, will kick off...
DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: The Old Part of Town, An Avian Category,
Weather, Music-"al"s, Easy Japanese, The Century of the Fight
... with $400 Music-"al"s. Peter finds the first Daily Double
under $1200 The Century of the Fight. He wagers it all AGAIN
(C-Note: here's hoping it works this time) on this: the Wars of
the Roses. "That would be the 15th century." That WOULD be the
15th Century. BUT because it's Double Jeopardy! and you didn't
phrase your response correctly... NO MONEY FOR YOU. Peter finds
the last one under $2000 The Old Part of Town. He didn't bet
everything this time, just $4800 on this: "Come with me to" this
exotic old section of Algiers; its name is from the Arabic for
"citadel". "What is Al Qibla?" Nope, it was the Casbah, leaving
him rocked down to $2400. He recovers to $3600 to $6400 for
Jeremy. Barbara had $1800.
In a word... Bizarre.
FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Airlines": on June 17, 1929 this airline's
first passenger flight left Dallas, making stops at Shreveport,
Monroe & Jackson. Correct response: what is Delta?
Peter ultimately came up with the correct response to win $7198,
giving him a two-day take of $25,599.

Brand new week (and perhaps the last
full week of regular episodes) begins with Olivina Avea, Harold
Anderson, Cameron Eagleson, and Merilee Pierce bidding on a set of
Kate Spade accessories. The $1255 accessories go to Merilee, who
can get a washer/dryer and a 3D 4KTV if she can Do the Math. The
money line: $902. She subtracts it to the washer/dryer (C-Note: I
would've added). The washer/dryer... $2398 (C-Note: wait for
it....) The TV... $3300 (C-Note: and boom goes the dynamite).
Cameron wins a $1799 exercise bike with Fitbits and a chance at a
Hyundai Elantra in Money Game.
21 45 39
63 97 22
84 20 76
Middle number is 5. 21... money. 22... money. 20 is the front.
97... money. Last pick is the Easter egg.... why. He earns $185.
The car was $20,563.
Olivina gets a $590 laptop. She'll buy all the accessories with
$25,000 if she wins Punch-a-Bunch. She gets the full round with a
$56 sealing system, a $100 electric juicer, a $40 hair curler, and
a $70 electric toothbrush. First hit... Unbelievable... on the
first hit... almost left of center in the second row... $10,000!
She stops with that, and I don't blame her! The others: $1000,
$250, and $2500.
Merilee would roll along to win the first Showcase Showdown,
though. Meanwhile, Kathy Taylor would win a $1303 set of cookware
with cutlery. Let's see her slice her way to a barbecue island
with pool table in Pick-A-Number:
$_ 6 7 0
Numbers: 5, 7, 9.
She picks the 7... But it was the 9 that had the win.
Laura Brooks wins an $890 DSLR camera with SD card. She'll add a
masasge chair with headphones and a trip to Arizona (5n @
Scottsdale Resort & McCormick Ranch) if she wins Grocery Game. We
have Bibigo mini wontons, KitKat Minis, Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats,
Snyder's mini pretzels, and Mission mini tortillas. She goes for
the max on the cereal. Each one is $5.49. Four... ENOUGH. $21.96
is a win!
Harold is down to his last bid and his last chance. The prize: an
Xbox One package. The price: $529. The winner: HAROLD on a dollar
bid! He can truck it away in a Honda Civic LX if he knows when
That's Too Much! He thinks $20,442 is too much, and that's... just
short. It was $21,642; $21,840 was too much. He does win over
Kathy, 75-50, in a Spin-Off.
First up in the Showcase... a trip to Chicago (6n @ Radisson Blu
Aqua Hotel), a dining room with dinnerware & $2600 from Terra's
Kitchen, and a Nissan Sentra S. Top winner Merilee bids $30,000.
Harol gets a pair of crystal kayaks, a trip to the Galapagos
Islands (6n @ Royal Palm Hotel), and a sailboat. He bids $32,000.
Actual price... of Merilee's Showcase is $33,966, a difference of
$3966. Actual price of Harold's Showcase... $32,.... 496 to win a
total of $33,025!

Host: Kal Penn with Dr. Rahul Jandial, Christina Milian & Mike
Another five superhumans, another five
tests of ability, and another $50,000 for the most amazing ability
as determined by our judges AND by the audience.
1) DAVID MILLAR (Fort Worth): He says that he's literally a-maze-ing,
because his superhuman ability is mazes. He has an impeccable
sense of direction. He'll be tested in "Follow My Steps". He will
have a moment to study the maze, and then, with his back to it,
he'll have to direct KAL through the one -- and only one --
correct path from start to finish BY MEMORY ALONE.
2) ANDREW BODY (Zanesville, OH): A superfast mental math master,
he'll have to prove himself in "Number Cruncher". Given a complex
equation, you'll have to beat a calculator being operated by Dr.
Jandial. Unfortunately, he misfires on the second one. He more
than makes up for it on the third.
3) AMY RICE (Golden, CO): Amy calls herself a "super recognizer".
She never forgets a face. She'll have to remember 40 of them,
because her challenge will be "Doctor's Orders". She'll meet 20
pairs of doctors & nurses, then we'll split them up, mix them up,
and you'll have to match them up. She does so without fail.
4) COURTNEY McCULLOUGH (Los Angeles): A traveler who is interested
in geography and considers herself a resident of the world - she's
half-Chinese, half-Mexican, can't speak neither Chinese nor
Spanish, can speak Hebrew but isn't Jewish, and is the
stepdaughter of a man named McCullough who isn't Isn't. Got all
that? Good. She can recognize all the countries of the world. Her
challenge: "All Over the Map". The board has numerous shapes -
she'll have to identify the REAL countries.
5) ALEX MULLEN (Jackson, MS): He has a razor-sharp memory, and he
uses it to get through med school. In the audience, his wife, who
is also in med school. His challenge is "In the Cards". He will be
shown an entire standard deck of 52 playing cards. He will have to
memorize the cards AS THEY APPEARED on the board EXACTLY.
- Alex Mullen
- David Millar
- Courtney McCullough
And tonight's $50,000 Superhuman... is ALEX!
