Episode 2.7
October 7

All right, I'm in the mood for some big time games. Let's meet our families:

Kyla's Family
Leader: KYLA (Kid chef and jam-mer)
Older sister: BRIANNA (What older sister ISN'T a bathroom hogger?)
Mother: LISA (Snapping pics every chance she gets)
Father: GUS (Every accent under the sun)
Payton's Family
Leader: PAYTON (Dancing machine)
Older brother: DYLAN (Trampolining... machine? There's gotta be a better term than that.)
Mother: LORI (Former beauty queen - really!)
Father: BARRY (Master of his grilling domain)

Tonight, we feel like raising the stakes a bit, because we're playing for $15,000!
SONIC WHAMMY'S PREDICTION: PRETZEL
And for the winning family, we've got a trip to Orlando waiting for them.

Cranium Brain Break: House of Cards

Both teams have the same angled idea, but Payton's house slips when they put the first roof on. That gives Kyla's family the edge and they coast to the win.

KYLA'S CARD: TRAIN
PAYTON'S CARD: DOG

SORRY! SLIDERS

Kyla chooses to go first. Both girls place their prize dots on the 1-3 border, Kyla behind the bullseye, Payton to the west.

For the kids, a lot of pushes to the back zone. Kyla hits a 1, Payton knocks it out, Brianna can't quite bump that one out, but gets back her team's point, and Dylan misses entirely. So it's a 1-1 tie, leaving it all to the parents.
FINAL SCORE: 1-1

Lori starts for the parents. She busts out going for her prize dot, but Lisa hits hers. But then Barry bumps it out, and Gus can't land with the last slider.
FINAL SCORE: 1-3 PAYTON

PAYTON'S FAMILY WINS: A 2-hour scuba lesson at Eco Dive Center
PAYTON'S CARD: ROLLERBLADE

BOP IT! BOPTAGON

I feel like Dana White should be here sometimes when I hear this game is coming. *shrug* Here's the eliminations:

1) GUS (Fell asleep on the FIRST COMMAND and forgot to whack)
2) DYLAN (Forgot to kick)
3) BARRY (Didnít whack fast enough)
4) PAYTON (Rotated on a reverse)
5) BRIANNA AND KYLA (Both rotated on a reverse)
6) LISA (Ran past the twist station during a rotate; you can't skip a station)

PAYTON'S FAMILY WINS: A 3-night stay aboard the Queen Mary.
PAYTON'S CARD: PRETZEL

Hey, someone took my card! Please let me be right this week... *crossing fingers*

SPELLING BEE

The moms are ready to "bee" silly. Payton's going second. 1:30 on the clock.

Lisa: GLUE, SALAD, BANJO, HANGER, MAKEUP, (TIME UP!) FOOTBALL
TOTAL: 500 POINTS

Lori: FORK, GLOBE, BENCH (pass), RADIO, (TIME UP!) SHOVEL
TOTAL: 300 POINTS

Bench just wasn't happening in spite of the clue, "It's in the park." That ate up all their time.

KYLA'S FAMILY WINS: 6 season passes at Raging Waters
KYLA'S CARD: THIMBLE

SIMON FLASH

Get your rainbow on!

RBGY (Payton), RYBG (Kyla), BYRG (Payton), GBYR (Payton), RGBY (Payton), YBGR (Payton)

Kyla's family was all disoriented. They kept trying to lock in a wrong answer on the 1st point, gave up the right answer just before they locked in on the 4th point, and lost the last two points by a split second.

PAYTON'S FAMILY WINS: A 1-year California State Parks membership and a Kelty 6-man tent
PAYTON'S CARD: PLANE

CONNECT 4 BASKETBALL

Payton elects to shoot first. Here's the winning grid.

ORYYYYO
ORYYRRO
OYRRRYO
ORYYRRY
ORRRYYY
ORYYRYR

Both sides had tons of missed shots that failed to capitalize on wins and blocks until the blocking family finally connected. Gus needed to block the top slot in #3 to keep it going, but got #2 instead, and Payton finally closed it out.

PAYTON'S FAMILY WINS: A Hayneedle electronic dart board
PAYTON'S CARD: CELL PHONE

We've got our cards, we've played our games... It's Crazy Cash Time!

MONOPOLY CRAZY CASH MACHINE

After that marathon, Payton has arrived at the Crazy Cash Machine in cruise control. Between a 5-2 card edge AND my prediction of the pretzel, Kyla's got no chance.

Payton's gonna start, though? Hmm...
DOG: $760
ROLLERBLADE: $380
PRETZEL: $485 (Nuts! At least someone picked my card.)
PLANE: $515
CELL PHONE: $630
TOTAL: $2,770

This is not a runaway. Kyla just needs one card to be big to win this.

TRAIN: $920
THIMBLE: $2,000
TOTAL: $2,920

WINNER: KYLA'S FAMILY

They WERE big cards, and they make the comeback to win the trip to Orlando! And the money could have been even bigger if they chose the $15,000 card behind... the SODA. (Darn, I was a week early.)

What excitement awaits this week? And when will we see the debut of Trouble? We eagerly wait as two new families compete next week. Seeya!
