If it's Friday night... And it's the Hub.. It's GAME NIGHT! Ditch the box and let's meet the players!

Sterling's Family: They're always on the go. Mom Gina's run two marathon. Dad Dwight's a Marine. Sister Jessica speaks Chinese and competed in the monster mile. RED FAMILY... READY!
Ryan's Family: Ryan's a dancer. Patrick's a pilot. Dad Greg is ALSO a pilot, and Mom Wendi's a crafter. Las Vegas is coming to town... YELLOW FAMILY, READY!

Five games will be played. Each win will give the family a choice of 21 Monopoly Crazy Cash Card (3C's). Each card has a different dollar amount. Tonight's top value: $12,500! Both families keep everything they win.

Tossup: Guess Who?

The tossup will determine which family gets first pick of the Cash Cards and first crack at the first game. Each team is guaranteed at least 1 Crazy Cash Card.

1) Began doing standup comedy when he was only 12 years old.
2) Won a Datime Emmy Award when he was 16 years old.
3) Appeared in a movie with Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and Megan Fox.

YELLOW TEAM answer: Shia LaBeouf.

4) Played the son of Indiana Jones... It IS Shia LaBeouf!

Ryan gets the first 3C, the PRETZEL. Sterling picks the DOG.

And the family with the most money at the end of the show wins a trip to the Caribbean!

The board:
