ABC: 10p/9c & 10:30p/9:30c
Host: Andy Richter
Official WebsiteFacebook

On tonight's show, we have a "Frozen" queen and a stone-cold fox..
Kim Kardashian West
Hidden Hills, CA
known for having a big ass and a sex tape
Gabrielle Tamburri
Mount Laurel, NJ
Colt Paulson
Cozad, NE
Suzanne Gilliam
Corpus Christi, TX
consulting services executive director

KEEPING UP WITH KIM: Questions on Kim's life and times. Each one is all-play, and correct answers are worth 100. Colt and Gabrielle are tied at 400 to Suzanne's 300, which means that Suzanne is NOT Kim's biggest fan. Sorry.

ANDY STOLE KIM'S PHONE: These are things on Kim's cell phone. Some of the explanations behind these things are true, and some... not so much. Correct answers are worth 100. We're tied at 800, so we go to a tiebreaker. How many pictures are actually in Kim's book "Selfish"? Colt says 412 to Gabrielle's 642. Correct answer: 480. Colt wins and is indeed Kim's biggest fan.

Now the question: does Colt know more about Kim than Kim? The Little Fan Trophy is up for grabs! Colt is running away with this. Final question: what famous singer is Kim's idol? Colt wins with Jennifer Lopez for the game, 7-2. His reward: a signed copy of "Selfish", an array of "Kardashiana", and a photo shoot with Kim using the video wall.

In the nightcap (featuring Kristen Bell)...

Kristen Bell
Huntington Woods, MI
Kourtney Golden
Warren, MI
office manager
Kara Stone
Rocklin, CA

Kara outlasts her opponents for the right to take on Kristen for the Little Fan trophy. Kara beats Kristen, 5-2, after knowing that Kristen used to work at the TCBY during high school. Her reward: a lot of Veronica Mars swag signed by Kristen... and a duet on stage of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman".

Josie Long
John Hodgman
"Judge John Hodgman"
Eugene Mirman
"Bob's Burgers"

While you were busy honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King, we were noticing that the FBI tweeted a quote from the man they actually spent years fighting back in the day. This is a fact. Tonight's #HashtagWars: to celebrate the first American novel being published 228 years ago, #MakeABookAmerican. Eugene has 800 to the others' 700.

In act 2, it's She Funded Me with Science (Kickstarter science projects) and tonight's Live Challenge, Coming to the Stage. As it turns out, the DC area strip clubs are getting ready for the incoming President's interns and sexy staffers. What's an announcement that you might hear at a strip club during the inauguration? Josie gets 1000 from this: "As a reminder: don't touch the performers, because it might count as a gynecological exam, and women are not allowed to get healthcare."

We're rounding third with Fake News. Everyone moves on, but be warned, @midnight Live is coming, and people are gonna get eliminated left and right.

FTW: after 146 years, the Greatest Show on Earth is closing up shop. Update a LinkedIn profile for a circus performer looking for work. The winner: "I'm an elephant with 20 years of circus experience. Now I have nothing. I know you think my great memory would be an asset, but I can't forget about the things they did to me. Sometimes I start fires just to put them out with my trunk. Anyway, I'm looking for a mid-level accounting job, please hire me." Winner... JOSIE on her first appearance!

Tomorrow's news paves the way for tomorrow's jokes. Continue the game online @midnight.

  It's been a long winter, but the Feud is back... and so are the Bradleys.


Tommy, Becky, Nathan, Jon, Christine

Love Sr, Jesikiah, Lessely, Leona, Jerod

SINGLE: something that's a guaranteed party starter.
1. Beer/shots 50       5. Party/vid games 4
2. Music/karaoke 26    6. Guests/hot ones 3
3. Dancing/topless 4   7. Drugs/giant reefer 3
4. Foood! 4

SINGLE: at a beach, a woman might ask a man, "Is that a (BLANK) in your speedo?"
1. Banana 30           5. Fish/eel 7
2. Sock 14             6. Phone 6
3. Cucumber/pickle 13  7. Potato 5
4. Gun 7

4. Sweet wheels 3

TRIPLE: fill in the blank: (BLANK) hood.
1. Robin 62
2. Neighborhood 18
3. Car 5
4. Little Red Riding 4

The Bradleys needed a sweep to force Sudden Death. They get it, and we're going...

SUDDEN DEATH: nowadays, something people have more than one of in their home. Christine fires with bedroom... not there. Jerod goes with TV... and the Porters are the new champs.

Jesikah and Love Sr. get their first crack at Fast Money. Jesikah gets three #1 answers for a total of 133. Love Sr. needs 67 to win. He gets the 67 in four for the $20,000.

Fast Money #1 answers
- 100 ladies, on a scale of 1 to 10, how sexy are your lips?: 10 (Jesikah)
- Some place a kid might store their toys: Under bed (Jesikah)
- Fill in the blank: the good (BLANK): Wife
- Something that people shoot off: Their mouths (Love Sr.)
- Something made for your fingers: Rings (Jesikah)

In the nightcap, the Cosios defend their $20,000 against the Andersons.

TRIPLE: Something a woman pays for to make her man look sexy.
1. Stud duds/speedo 65
2. Haircut/styling 21
3. Manscaping/wax 2
4. Gym membership 2

The Cosios try to steal for the shutout... but they come up short.

SUDDEN DEATH: something that comes out of your mouth that shouldn't. Kyle gets lies for the win.

Mercy & Matt play Fast Money again, but only come up with 103 for another $515, giving them $20,515 for two.

  Eli has shocked the world by becoming champion. Let's see if his run continues...
Eli Nehus

Fayetteville, AR
electrical engineer
John Avila
Arlington, VA
Mary Caruso
Cherry Hill, NJ
registered nurse

JEOPARDY! ROUND: It's the Geneva Convention, Got Your Name Tag?, Around the House, Out of Con Text, Lotsa "Luck", A Movie to Die For

Eli starts with $200 A Movie to Die For. At the TV timeout, Eli breaks the tie with $2600 to John's $1800. Mary has $1200.

John finds the Daily Double under $800 It's the Geneva Convention. He fronts $1500 on this: the 1906 Convention called for ratifications to be filed in this nearby national capital. "What is Zurich?" No, it was Bern, leaving him with $700. He ends up with that much. With Eli on $4800 to $1400 for Mary, John gets the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Civil Rights Leaders, Geometric Shape Rhyme Time, The Emmys 1967, Tech Talk, Rooms Full of Culture, "C"ounties.

... with $400 "C"ounties, where John finds the first Daily Double under $1200. He fronts $1300 on this: Southwest Texas county named for a man who died in San Antonio. "What is Crockett?" RIGHT for $4600! He also finds the other under $800 Room Full of Culture. He bets $4500 on this: for over a century Room 12 has been the center for the Velazquez Collection at this museum. "What is the British Museum?" No, it was the Prado, leaving him with $7500 to end the round against $8400 for Eli and $7000 for Mary.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "20th Century History": villages like Zalesye, Kopachi & Lubyanka remain abandoned 3 decades after this event. Correct response: what is Chernobyl?

Mary and John get it. Eli... not so much. He leaves with $7227, while John wins $14,001.


Joe and Blair are right. Jack... not so much, so Blair backs into the $17,402 win. Joe leaves with $38,500.

Alana Meier, Anthony Smith, Joshua Bennett, and Sandra Mullins kick off this abbreviated week with an iPhone 7 Plus with Apple Watch. The $1988 phone & watch go to Sandra, who can walk out with a digital camera with memory card or a 2017 Chevy Sonic in Any Number. After five...

CAR: $17,95_
Camera: $8__
Piggy: $3.__

She takes the 6... in the camera. The 2... is in the CAR for $17,952!

Joshua tries to follow that up with $500 on a perfect bid on a $925 foosball table. He hopes the winning continues with a set of Michael Kors handbags and a 4KTV. The 1 Right Price: $3800. He goes with the handbags... not it.

Nancy Rich goes down and up thanks to a $1000 dishwasher. She can add $20,000 to that stash if she makes it hot in Hot Seat. The board...

- Waffle maker: $99 - LOWER
- Electric toothbrush: $75 - HIGHER
- Nail care system: $29 - HIGHER
- Ceramic heater: $150 - LOWER
- Hair dryer: $55 - LOWER

Starting with the nail system... $50! Heater... $70! Hair dryer... $28! Waffler... $40! Will she go on for the big money? No. She stops at $10,000... and she could have had $20,000, because the toothbrush was $190.

Nancy beats Sandra, 55-30, in a Spinoff. Meanwhile, Anthony gets a $1650 Dell laptop with printer and a chance at a tour of Guatemala (10d @ with camping gear & GPS. Let's go to the Vend-O-Price.

He picks the middle. Each of the Ring Pops are 99c for a total of $7.92. Each box of cereal is worth $4.99 for a total of $14.97. Each of the Coco Libres is.... $4.79 for a total of $23.95!

Alana gets off the schneid with a $2430 set of appliances with kitchen island. Will she also win a pair of scooters with helmets in the Balance Game? The bags: $238, $1000, $3000, and $4000. She goes with $4238... too light. It was $5238.

Evelyn Whitfield takes us into Showdown #2 with a $1227 hammock with Kindle. Next for her: a 2017 Fiat 500 Easy in Card Game. She draws a $1000 window. First card: the Ace of Spades! She makes it $2000 to go en route to a bid of $18,000. Anything between that and $19,000 is a winner. The price: $21,678. She makes up for it with $1000 on the Big Wheel.

First in the Showcases, a trip to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (6n @ Marriott Tampa Waterside) & Canada (6n @ Chateau Victoria Hotel & Suites) and a 2017 Hyundai Veloster. Top winner Nancy bids $24,655. Evelyn gets a trip to Cabo San Lucas (6n @ Diamante Cabo San Lucas), a hot tub, and a party boat. She bids $30,000. Actual price... $39,648, a difference of $9648. Actual price of Nancy's Showcase... $29,948. She wins with a difference of $5293! That gives her a total in prizes of $41,326, and we're off and running!

  This week, we have Getaway Week, where each player will have a chance to win a Getaway Package for a loved one. That package is a 3-day, 2-night stay at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and all they have to do to win it is to win at least $5,000.

Reza Zamanian (Dallas, TX)
Playing for: His parents
(+1): His friend, Rick

He asks the audience to help him secure $5,000 and the Getaway Package; he then uses the 50:50 at $20,000 before seeing this...

According to the Mayo Clinic, it takes roughly how long for a newborn baby to double in body weight?
A: 1 month
B: 5 months
C: 11 months
D: 18 months

Reza has 2 kids, and he's sure that it's not A. He decides to call on Rick, who rules out D. He'd guess C, but that's just a guess. After plenty of discussion about the whole thing, Reza eventually decides to walk with $20,000! As it turns out, the answer is B!

To end the show for today, Amanda Mitchell gets to go for $1,000...

A famous row of multicolored Victorian homes, San Francisco's "Painted Ladies" can be seen in which show's opening credits?
A: The Brady Bunch
B: Full House
C: Three's Company
D: Saved by the Bell

Amanda locks in B... and she's right!
