kind, piano lessons by force)
Brother: MAX (speed eating? A future Joey Chestnut, perhaps)
Mother: CAROLE (don't force the meat on her)
Father: BRAD (pep talk to wake you up: "I FEEL TERRIFIC")
you're it! Her dog Daisy is rooting for her today.)
Brother: DILLON (junior lifeguard)
Mother: LAURA (paddleboarder)
Father: GARY (fantasy football fanatic)
An eclectic bunch today. How much are
they shooting for? $10,000
SONIC WHAMMY'S PREDICTION: TRAIN
Along with that, we're sending one family to Jamaica. So what are we
waiting for? Let's... take flight?
Cranium Brain Break: Newton
Say what? OK, wrap your head around this: Going in family order like
in Operation, each family member will be throwing airplanes, trying
to land them completely on the runway strip in front of them. After
everyone's gone twice, the plane that's furthest down the runway
These planes just fly all over the place, looping all over the
place. Only one plane actually lands on the runway, and it was on
Carole's first throw.
MASON'S CARD: HAT
LANE'S CARD: CAR
Mason is going to go first. The cubes make a loud noise...

And can anyone find COOKIE to win a 32" HD flat-panel TV?
Mason: HAT, LOVE, OVER, OAR, MOVE, TOP, SAY (TIME UP!)
Lane: CLEAN, MOVERS, LEAN, SNAP, LOW, LOVERS
FINAL SCORE: 24-28 Lane
Lane's gang was just finding those big words.
LANE'S FAMILY WINS: A 3-in-1 game table from Hayneedle
LANE'S CARD: PRETZEL
OPERATION: SAM DUNK
Todd makes it clear. He's aiming for Frog In The Throat. He gets
Burp Bubbles instead. Hey, a hit's a hit. Lane's going second.
Mason kicks it off right away with Phone Finger, and Max backs it up
with Toxic Gas. Laura & Brad trade Burp Bubbles while Gary just misses
the Giggles. Mason hits Toxic Gas on his second throw while Lane gets a
Phone Finger. Carole gets another Burp Bubbles that Laura just misses
this time. And with the big lead, the last super throw by Gary goes
nowhere it needs to.
FINAL SCORE: 1000-350 Mason
MASON'S FAMILY WINS: A Samick Torino electric guitar
MASON'S CARD: HAMBURGER
TROUBLE POP QUIZ
Wake up call, everyone, the Pop-O-Matic Bubble has landed!
We start with an Amazing Race question... that Mason misses, and Lane
gets. Six people on a team, really? Anyway, Lane & Dillon nail the first
4 questions, and Laura is home with Gary not far behind. Mason & Max
make a sweeping save hitting a 6 that bumps Gary back, and then get the
ball rolling, answering the next 4 questions and getting both Carole AND
Brad home for the win!
MASON'S FAMILY WINS: A Coleman camping package
MASON'S CARD: BOOT
Now, we have a twist this time. There are now regular 5 cards in the
stacks, and placing one of them freezes the other family for 10 seconds.
Also, if you make a mistake, it is now an automatic loss! This game just
got much more dangerous.
Mason starts off with the first card, but it's otherwise slow going
because of the new rule. Brad tries to speed it up, but he's too fast
and places a 1 on a 3! And it's over in less than a minute. Todd says
there was a lot of action, but it didn't get the chance to materialize.
LANE'S FAMILY WINS: A trip to Cirque de Soleil Iris at the Kodak Theater
LANE'S CARD: PIGGY BANK
Lane's chosen to go first for the opening
frame, and Gary heads down for the calling.
Gary: 12245 > 22256 > 22233 (FULL HOUSE)
Brad: 34556 > 13456 > 34566 (SMALL STRAIGHT)
That 2 just kept from tipping over on Max's 2nd roll.
Carole: 12466 > 44566 > 44666 (FULL HOUSE)
Laura: 23345 > 33445 > 12333 (TRIPS)
Bowl-Off: Lane VS. Mason
Lane: 13456 (SMALL STRAIGHT)
Mason: 22334 (2 PAIR)
LANE'S FAMILY WINS: A pair of Whiplash street scooters from Street
LANE'S CARD: DOG
MONOPOLY CRAZY CASH MACHINE
It's been quite a tussle tonight. Lane took the advantage on that last
game to set up the 3-4 defense. Will that last card be the tipping
Lane will start it off to set the pace.
PIGGY BANK: $815
Daisy gave them a nice finish. Mason's gotta get some good cards now.
WINNERS: MASON'S FAMILY
Big boots for big bucks! They've won it all, and Jamaica awaits them
now. Congrats to them, and we'll see if another family can build on that
magic next week. Take care!
