  Ben unseated a four-timer to get where he is today, though you could argue that said four-timer unseated himself... anyway, onto the game!
Ben Raphel

healthcare data analyst

Charlie Santiuste
Charlottesville, VA
relationship manager
LaKedra Pam
Baton Rouge, LA

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Dogs in Hats, That's Some Shameless Pandering, Where & When, Best Short Film Oscars, Recent Kids' Books; Mercury, Venus or Mars

Ben starts with $200 Where & When. He goes into the TV timeout on $1400 to $1000. LaKedra's way out in front with $4800.

LaKedra finds the Daily Double under $1000 Recent Kids' Books. She bets $2400 on this: this 2-word title of Chelsea Clinton's book about determined women was coined by Sen. McConnell about Sen. Warren. "What is 'She Persisted'?" RIGHT for $8800! She tacks on another $1000 to widen her gap over Ben at $5200. Charlie on $3800 gets the first go in ...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: 20th Century Art, TV Watering Holes, Home Sweet Home, Acid, Peninsulas, "Great" Stuff

... with $400 20th Century Art, finding the Daily Double under $2000 Home Sweet Home. He makes it 3 racks to go on this: her last home was a 14-room boarding house in Arkansas known as Hatchet Hall. "Who is Helen Keller?" No, it was Carrie Nation, dropping him to $4000. Four clues later, Ben finds the other under $1200 Peninsulas. He wagers $4000 on this: this large Siberian peninsula is home to more than 125 volcanoes as well as numerous geysers & hot springs. "What is the Kamatchka Peninsula?" Ouch, it's the Kam-CHAT-ka Peninsula. He drops to $2800, where he ends the round to $12,400 for Charlie. LaKedra owns them both with $23,000.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Ancient Symbols": Taiji, the Great Ultimate, is the source of this pair that's represented by the colors orannge & azure respectively. Correct response: what are yin & yang?

Charlie and LaKedra are right, as LaKedra wins $24,801. Ben leaves with $25,201.

It's a new week at the Marketplace with karate grandma Marion (orig. Beaumont, TX, retired secretary) playing for a HONDA CIVIC LX worth $20,415 in ACCELERATOR! C-A-R is a W-I-N. First ball lands on... C for $400. She's going to go another time... ZONK.

Where's Waldo Elizabeth (the OC) gets Curtain #1, a small box, and a gift bag. She has to give two of them away. She gives the small box to lifeguard Noel (cheer coach & student), who can sell it back for $500. Box. $1000. Money. Noel dodged an INSTANT BREAKFAST (ZONK!)! Gift bag goes to big baby Norma (Dallas, daycare teacher), unless she wants $800...No dice. $1000. No dice. Norma wins FIVE TIMES THAT! Elizabeth still has Curtain #1, which she can sell for $2000. DEAL! Behind the curtain... a new sauna with outdoor furniture worth $6832.

Tiger Kelly (orig. Scotland; works in an escape room) gets an LMAD Gift Certificate and two cards: one of which can turn the $50 GC into $5000. She picks B. Will she give it up for either $500 or Curtain #2? She's keeping the GC. Behind the curtain: a new music room worth $4934. She ends up with... $5000!

Spoony bard Cameron (theater teacher to kids with autism) gets a Big Box and five questions to... JONATHAN BIG HEAD. Is it edible? No. Is it more than 3 feet long? Yes. Should a child use it? No. Would you like Curtain #3 instead? No, so you don't get a pair of scooters worth $6098. In the box... JET SKIS (ZONK!)!

Baseballer Jacob (Rancho Cucamonga, CA; pre-med student at UC-Irvine) and radio Michalene (documentary student in LA from Fresno) get $900 each. They can use it to buy a $600 box (clue: electronic) or a $900 curtain (clue: non-electronic). Jacob buys the box. Michalene buys the curtain. Jacob gets ... a pair of iPads worth $1798! He has $2098 so far! Michaelene gets a new dining room worth $4010! But will any of them trade for one of three envelopes? Two envelopes are Zonks. The other is a trip. Michalene keeps her dining room. Jacob keeps his iPads. The trip was... ICELAND (5n @ ION Adventure Hotel & ION City Hotel) worth $9368.

Pirate Ebony plays PAIR-A-DICE. Pair of 4s, $400. Pair of 5s, $500. Pair of 6s, $600. Pair of Zonks, game over. Get the money before you Zonk out, you get a FORD FIESTA WORTH $16,860!

#5 - 4
#7 - ZONK ($200 to stop? No.)

Last one before the Big one. TV Natalie (medical assistant from Panorama City) has a poster from Cat: "It could always be worse." There's cash in the poster. Or take Curtain #2. She wants the curtain, and $2100 buys her a JUMBO COUCH (ZONK!). Big couch...

... but not the Big Deal of the Day worth $30,872! Norma's buying a door with her $5000! She picks Door #2. Behind Door #3... a new kitchen worth $6296. Behind Door #1... a home gym worth $2395. So for $5000, she wins the BIG DEAL, and it starts with a CARIBBEAN CRUISE (6n @ Island Windjammers) ... and a EUROPEAN CRUISE (8n @ Viking Cruises), a Big Deal worth $30,872!

And with that Big Deal win, we’ve crossed the $2 million mark for the season! Now it’s ONTO $3 MILLION!

Last week, we cut the field to eight. Only FOUR will make it to next week's finals. It all depends on how they fare on the semifinal stage.

Each player will sing twice - once by themselves and once with another contestant. Performances from both will factor into the votes, which are now open on all methods -, The Voice App, Facebook, and iTunes (top 10 vote multiplier is in effect) - and will remain open until 12p ET tomorrow. And that's important because the two singers with the lowest total, regardless of team affiliation, will have to sing for their life tomorrow night. Comcast Xfinity X1 customers can use their remote to vote.

Gold Bond Ultimate Mystery Round is a Character. Mitch runs out to solve THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST for $6600! He's up to $8250 AND he's still got the Wild Card.

Prize/Express Round is Places. Margie Freeplays an S and solves GLORIOUS WHITE SAND BEACHES for $3400... AND a trip to Aruba (Marriott Resort Aruba Stellaris Casino) worth $6300! She's banked $10,700!
