  New EP Michael Davies once quoted Monty Hall when he said that in every great game show there's a moment when a contestant can win or lose everything. In his one week, he has had zero shortage of said moments brought on by two superchamps, one of which is still playing!

orig. Coral Gables, FL

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Geographic Stupid Answers, Bird Brains, Blacksmithing, Disney Songs, A Ford Fiesta, That's a Car Model

Jonathan starts with $800 Disney Songs. At the TV timeout, Adam leads with $3400. Jonathan's behind, but not by much, with $2800. Anna is $400 in the red.

Jonathan finds the Daily Double under $800 Bird Brains. He fronts $1000 on this:
- BIRD BRAINS for $1000: Scientists think the corvids, including the American & carrion this, are the smartest of all birds
"What's a crow?" RIGHT for $4400! Adam gets the last clue in the round to tie it up there. Anna on $800 will get the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: History's Mysteries, Swedish Writers, Theater Companies, What a Beautiful Name, Fictional Africa, Verbi"age".

... with $400 Verbiage. Jonathan is up to $16,000 when he finds the first Daily Double under $2000 History's Mysteries. He wagers the level on this:
- HISTORY'S MYSTERIES for $2000: A real-life drama: this Shakespeare contemporary was killed under mysterious circumstances May 30, 1593.
"Who is Marlowe?" RIGHT for $18,000! He's up to $24,000 when he finds the other under $800 Fictional Africa. He bets $2000 again on this.
- FICTIONAL AFRICA: Also known as the Golden City, Birnin Zana is the capital of this futuristic African nation.
"What is Wakanda?" WAKANDA FOREVER! He's up to $26,000! He ends up with $27,600. With Adam and Anna tied at $6800, it's Jonathan's game to lose.

An aside, normally this would be the ideal prisoner's dilemma situation. Adam, do you trust Anna? Anna, do you trust Adam? Notice I said normally, because Jonathan is locked into the win.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Names on the Map": From 1824 to 1825 this hero toured all 24 states & an Indiana city was named for him. Correct response: who was the Marquis Gilbert de Lafayette?

Jonathan wins another $25,200, giving him $142,900 for six.

Is someone going to ride Candymonium today? Welcome to the Season Finale!

One last history lesson: Milton Hershey built Hersheypark in 1906 as a place where employees can relax after a day of making chocolate. Tonight, we have this same park all to ourselves.

The theme tonight... Frightful Forest! The Theme... MAD SCIENTIST'S LAB. Your required candy can be sussed out by solving this clue...
- CANDY CLUE: The amount of these long, red chewy treats made each years, lined up end-to-end, could circle the world twice. Head over to the longest, tallest coaster in the park to pick up some twisty candy of your own.
ANSWER: CANDYMONIUM, a B&M hypercoaster with a height of 210 feet that moves at speeds of up to 76mph.

... and back to Hershey's Chocolate World to get to work.
- Holly: Trick or Treating Gone Wrong
- Alejandra: El Bosque de la Muñecas (The Forest of the Dolls)
- Fritz: The Deadly Tree

In addition, they have to work on an edible treat based on a Hershey candy. Which one? CANDY CLUE TIME!
- CANDY CLUE: The chilly mint center of this dark chocolate-dipped candy is only revealed when conducting the "snap test"... or when you take your first bite. Find the ride that will send you flying through the crisp night air.
ANSWER: The Frontier Flyers, a Larson International interpretation of a ride that premiered at the World's Fair in 1939. Ride one circuit to get... YORK PEPPERMINT PATTIES.

The treats:
- Fritz: York Peppermint Ghosts
- Alejandra: Haunted Planters
- Holly: Pecan & Peppermint Bonbons

Happy Halloween and ride on!

Last night, the couples saluted the heroes & villains of the Disney Universe. Brian Austin Green & Sharna Burgess were eliminated right off the bat, while Matt James & Lindsay Arnold were cut by the judges. Well, one judge... Len.

Now the scores are reset... and "Grease" is the word as we reenact the movie dance for dance, song for song. Here to kick it off is Sandy herself, Olivia Newton-John. 

LINEUP (with scores from Carrie Ann/Len/Derek/Bruno)
- Olivia Jade & Val Chmerkovskiy - FOXTROT to "Summer Nights" - 9/9/9/9 - 36 out of a possible 40
- Melora Hardin & Artem Chigvintsev - VIENNESE WALTZ to "Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee" - 9/9/9/9 - 36
- Iman Shumpert & Daniella Karagach - VIENNESE WALTZ to "Hopelessly Devoted to You" - 7/7/7/7 - 28
- Mike "The Miz" Mizanin & Witney Carson - JIVE to "Greased Lightnin'" - 8/8/8/8 - 32
- Amanda Kloots & Alan Bersten (fresh off a Zoom with Didi Conn) - VIENNESE WALTZ to "Beauty School Dropout", performed live by Frankie Avalon - 10/10/9/10 - 39
- Suni Lee & Sasha Farber - CHARLESTON to "Born to Hand Jive" - 9/9/9/9 - 36
- Jimmie Allen & Emma Slater - FOXTROT to "Sandy" - 8/8/9/9 - 34
- Kenya Moore & Brandon Armstrong - RUMBA to "There Are Worse Things I Could Do" - 9/9/9/9 - 36
- JoJo Siwa & Jenna Johnson - FOXTROT to "Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee (Reprise)" - 10/10/10/10 - PERFECT 40!
- Melanie C & Gleb Savchenko - QUICKSTEP to "You're The One That I Want"  - 9/9/9/9 - 36
- Cody Rigsby & Cheryl Burke  - QUICKSTEP to "We Go Together" - 8/8/8/8 - 32

That last performance was worthy of a guy who played Kenickie in high school and sucked at it. LEADERBOARD ME!

- 40 - JoJo/Jenna
- 39 - Amanda/Alan
- 36 - Olivia/Val, Melora/Artem, Suni/Sasha, Melanie/Gleb, Kenya/Brandon
- 34 - Jimmie/Emma
- 32 - Miz/Witney, Cody/Cheryl
- 28 - Iman/Daniella

That is without the vote. Now we go to the vote, and it seems like there are too many 36s to just be sure of anything.
- BOTTOM 2: Melanie/Gleb, Olivia/Val

... Told you. The judges will vote now to save one couple.
- Derek: "America, what have you done?" Olivia/Val
- Carrie Ann: "This is not the way it's supposed to work out at all." Melanie/Gleb
- Bruno: Melanie/Gleb
- Len: "Neither of you deserves to be here." Olivia/Val. And since the judges are deadlocked, Len, as head judge, will make the final decision.
ELIMINATED: Melanie & Gleb

Say what you will about who belongs where, but when you stack the points like that, it's a recipe for chaos theory. So you can blame the voting public all you want, but you're the ones with the paddles, so... Anyway! Next week, it's all about #SpookySZN.

Dani the Medieval Lady(sings in a rockabilly band/logistics manager for a publishing company) is playing TIC TAC DEAL(created by our friend Gordon Pepper)! The prize is a 2022 Toyota Corolla Hatchback worth $23,148! Here's how the game works. We have a board that looks like this:
3 4 5
6 7 8
9 10 11
Dani will have up to 5 rolls to make TIC TAC DEAL either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. 2s, 12s, and repeats of knocked out numbers are no good and are a wasted roll. If Dani can get TIC TAC DEAL within that 5 roll limit, she wins the Corolla. Her first roll is an 8. Next is 5. 11 will give Dani the car. Dani passes on $1,000 not to play. She rolls 8(no good). Dani is re-offered the $1,000 not to play. Dani rolls the best number possible besides the 11 - a 7. She has one roll left and three numbers will give her the car - 6,9 or 11. Wayne offers $2,000 not to go for the car. Dani goes for the car and rolls...a 4. Not enough. She gets $100 for her singing but leaves without the car.

Arthur the LMAD Hype Man(cheerleading coach at CSU Bakersfield). He gets a clue for the Big Box prize from 30 SECOND THEATER. Wayne and Jonathan will act out a scene which is a clue to the prize. After the scene, Arthur passes on $1,000 for the Big Box prize and it's a Honda Metropolitan Scooter worth $2,999!

Anna says 49 and Rebecca says 57. Rebecca needs her eyes checked as Jerry is only 44. She sits down with $100. Anna and Jerry both have $1,000. Anna takes Curtain 2 over $1,000 and wins a home gym with Bowflex and exercise bike worth $2,498! Jerry takes the small box over $1,000 and wins a TINY CARDBOARD BOOMBOX(ZONK). Jerry is about to be sent off when Wayne and Jonathan notice a tiny envelope in the back of the boombox. The envelope is not the only thing that is recycled! JERRY WINS THE $10,000 MEGA MONEY MONDAY PRIZE - NO ZONK FOR HIM!

Christina the Butterfly in a wheelchair(lost her leg a couple of years ago but is using a prosthesis and is not letting that get her down!) is playing THREE CARD TIFFANY. Two cards on the table have a picture of Tiffany. One has $500 in cash. If Christina matches TIFFANY, she wins a trip to Vancouver, Canada for 4N worth $6,034!

She would have picked 3 again but would have been ZONKED. 1 was WAYNE.

Last deal of the day involves Walt(as Dr. Zonker - retired Aerospace Engineer worked on the B-2 Project). Walt has $1,000 in the red box and can go for the green box and two prizes. If it is a zonk, the game is over. Walt goes for the green box and wins a pair of Apple Iphone 12's and 2 pair of Airpods worth $2,696! He has $3,696 in cash and prizes. Will Walt go for THREE prizes with the blue small box? He does and wins...MOSS PUMPS(ZONK)!
