"Episode 8: The Christmas Mob" - December 25

Last time, Keikabou Holland took the Mob for $174,000. Now it's a special Christmas Mob with...

- The head elf at #100...
- Five of his helpers...
- 12 drummers drumming from the USC Marching Band...
- 11 pipers piping. Those would be plumbers...
- 10 lords a-leaping. Those would be male dancers...
- Nine ladies dancing. Those would be go-go dancers...
- Eight maids a-milking. Those would be farmer's wives...
- Seven swans a-swimming. Those would be Cal State water polo players..
- Six geese a-laying. Those would be pregnant women...
- Five golden rings. Those would be boxers...
- Four calling birds. Those would be birdcallers...
- Three French hens. Those would be... French chefs...
- Two turtle doves. Those would be dove hunters...
- ... and a Partridge in a pear tree... That would be... Danny Bonaduce.

And Mr. NBC with this announcement...

"Due to the length of tonight's football game, we now join '1 vs. 100', already in progress."

But Don Harpwood got the full episode, so here's what he's got to say...

The first contestant is MELANIE PINO from Denver, CO. She's a student, who plans to be a homicide detective because she's fascinated with dead people.

The first $1,000 question was this:

$1,000

MOB
100
ASK
POLL
TRUST

It's Christmas Eve and you've got claustrophobia. What are you afraid of?

A) Santa Claus B) Small spaces C) Eating candy out of other people's socks

Melanie thinks for a second, then locks in B... and is right! Only 1 mob member, #58, got it wrong; he chose A.

$1,000

MOB

ASK
POLL
TRUST

The births of which two people are celebrated on December 25th?

A) Jesus Christ and Dido B) Mary Magdalene and Moby C) Pontius Pilate and Prince

She goes with A... Correct! She knocks out... no one.

$1,000

MOB

ASK
POLL
TRUST

Santa just successfully parallel parked his sleigh! Which part of it is now perpendicular to the curb?

A) Passenger-side door B) Driver-side door C) Back end

Melanie thinks it's the back end with the perpendicular. Wait. No she doesn't. She locks in with A. Who got it wrong? 54 Mobsters, including Danny Bonnaduce...

And one Melanie. Correct is C. Which means the 45 members of the Mob remaining split $1000, about $22.22 each.

And I'm not sure, but I believe she also knocked out Annie Duke, a reigning Mob champion. Annie survived four players and answered the previous 35 questions correctly.

New player, from Jersey City, NJ, it's MICHAEL ZAJACZKOWSKI. He's a court clerk for the Superior Court of New Jersey.

Joining the remaining 45 members of the Holiday Mob are 55 Mob newbies to make it... ONE... versus 100!

First three questions are worth $1000.

$1,000

POLL

Santa has stains all over his red suit after a full night of work. Which one is a result of combustion?

A) Milk B) Lipstick C) Soot

Michael goes through a chimney with C... Right! He knocks out ... Santa! He and four more give Michael $5000.

In the audience, Michael's wife and child, who are probably more nervous than he's ever been.

$1,000

On December 26th, as you return the new Kevin Federline CD, you wonder: "How many total shopping days until next Christmas?"

A) Less than 350 B) Exactly 350 C) More than 350

Michael goes with C... right! Eight people miss, giving him another $8000.

$1,000

MOB

ASK
POLL
TRUST

In the holiday poem "The Night Before Christmas", where does Santa stick his finger to get up the chimney?

A) On his belt B) Alongside his nose C) In his sack

It's not coming to Michael. He asks for help. He uses his Poll on A... and 18 went with that. #30 Lily says his sack didn't make sense.

Michael goes with ... the Ask the Mob. #49 Chanel says A. #64 Fred goes with B, reading the poem to his two nieces. That rules out C. Michael goes with Fred. And B is... RIGHT! 23 wrong, $23,000.

And that gives him $36,000. Wearing his wife's father's dogtags, he faces his first decision of the night... leave with $36,000 or take on the Mob.

Does he want the money... or the Mob?

"We're going for the Mob, Bob!"

You have six geese a-laying and each goose hatches two chicks. How many wings are there in the barnyard?

A) 12 B) 24 C) 36

12 chicks. That's 24 wings. But the geese have two wings each, as Michael goes with C... RIGHT! Sixteen wrong, $32,000. That puts Michael at $68,000.

A) Carnegie Hall B) Rockefeller Center C) Grand Central Station

Michael goes ice-skating at B... and he's right! Four wrong, $8000, giving Michael $76,000.

So now Michael, 44 Mobsters or $76,000. "There's one more on the way. I got a Full House coming, Bob!" He can appreciate that.

Michael wants the Mob...

What was the name of the title character played by Will Ferrell in the holiday comedy "Elf"?

A) Twinkletoes B) Elfis C) Buddy

Michael owns the movie. He goes with C. And... he's right! Michael knocks out six more for $94,000.

Money or the Mob?

"Get a job! Going with the Mob!" It's 1 vs. 38!

$4,000

According to the traditional Chanukah song "Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel", what is the dreidel made of, made of, made of?

A) Wood, wood, wood B) Clay, clay, clay C) Plastic, plastic, plastic

Michael's gut says A... But he uses his last help. The Mob locks into B, the most popular answer. He's happy...

As he should be. Right on! That answer knocks out 11 for $44,000 more.

Michael's at $138,000 and 27 people away from a million. But he is out of help. His wife wants him to take the money...

"Bob... I'm going with the money." That's $138,000 denied. And the family comes down to congratulate him. The 27 people will return to face a new challenger next time...

Merry merry and happy happy!
