While you were busy wishing your sister a happy birthday (C-Note: happy birthday, Quisla!), Apple was prepping to get into the car game. With a self-driving Apple Car. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #AddASongRuinAMovie. Dave leads with 900 to Steve's 700 and J's 500.

Next up, it's We Cringe You a Merry Cringe-Mas (a Cringeworthy holiday) and tonight's Live Challenge, Check Me Out. Amazon Go allows you to grab what you want in a store and go. The first store is going up in 2017. What's something else that could end badly for Amazon? Dave gets 1000 from this: "Welcome to Amazon Fantasy Football! It's just a picture of Tom Brady and a Flashlight."

Rounding third with Global Warning. Everyone's going through to...

FTW: The FCC has allowed the incoming President to text everyone at once using the Emergency Alert System. Give us a phrase you'd see from President Trump. The winner: "If you don't forward this text to 7 people... something terrible will happen to America." Forget winning the Internet, J BREAKS the internet!

Tomorrow's funny makes for the game tomorrow night. Continue the game online @midnight.

  Tim had a big day on Friday. Let's see if he has a big week.
Tim Aten

Vermilion, OH
Yi Deng
Jersey City, NJ
sub-right's assistant
Matthew Martinez
San Antonio
draft equipment salesman

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Holiday Albums, Classic Monopoly, Literary Character, Mottoes, 19th Century America, Name That Noun

Tim starts with $200 Holiday Albums. Yi finds the Daily Double under $400 Literary Characters. She bets everything on this: per his creator "He could spring twenty feet across space at the dizzy heights of the forest top." "Who is Frankenstein's Monster?" No, it was Tarzan. She ends up $2000, but with Matthew at $3600 to Tom's $3400, she gets the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: You, Sir, Are an Impasto; Tough 3-Letter Words, The Space Race, Going to the Dog's Breed, Volcanoes, Who "AR" They?

... with $400 You, Sir, Are an Impasto. Tim finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Volcanoes. He bets $3000 on this: the island of Tutuila in this US territory is dominated by the eroded Pago volcano. "What is Guam?" No, it was American Samoa, dropping him to $2000. Matthew finds the other under $2000 The Space Race. He bets $4000 on this: this commander on his 1970 flight: "Our mission was a failure but I like to think it was a successful failure." "Who is Cooper?" No, it was James Lovell of Apollo 13, dropping him to $6400. He ends up with $7600 to Yi's $12,000. Tim has $6800.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Name's The Same": name shared by one of a trio of young chums in a popular book series & the daughter of Menelaus & Helen of Troy. Correct response: what is Hermione?

Tim is right to eke out a win with $12,800, giving him $47,800 for two!

  First up is some unfinished business from Bachelor Fan Favorites Week. Byron Velvick (San Antonio, TX), playing for CASA - Child Advocates of San Antonio, sits at $20,000 with 2 lifelines available.

He asks the audience and calls on his Plus One (his buddy, Randy) at $30,000. He then sees this...

Which of the following is NOT the name of a category in the "personals" section of Craigslist?
A: Missed connections
B: Singles who mingle
C: Strictly platonic
D: Casual encounters

Byron says that at this level, it's probably not the most obvious answer. He isn't sure what it is, though, and after some consideration, he walks, giving CASA $30,000! As for the answer, it's B.

Michael Rankins (Newark, CA) sweeps the first 5, then uses the 50:50 at $10,000. He has $20,000 when the horn goes off; Michael returns tomorrow!
