Today is

Episode 3 - December 21

Last night on "Identity", Robert Talon did the improbable. He nailed all 12 identities for $500,000, and it came down to a belly dancer and a violinist... Can someone do it again?

First up tonight is MATTHEW GATEWOOD from Inglewood, CA. Matthew's a fireman for 18 years. Today, he goes up against a different kind of firefight.

The game is simple... Each identity given belongs to one, and ONLY one, of the strangers. Match the 12 with their identities, and you're going home half a million dollars richer. The more identities you match, the more you win...

$ 500,000
$ 250,000
$ 150,000
$ 100,000
$  75,000
$  50,000
$  25,000
$  15,000
$  10,000
$   5,000
$   1,000

Matthew will have three helps available to him...

- MISTAKEN IDENTITY: He is allowed to miss one
- TRI-DENTITY: He can narrow an identity down to three strangers
- EXPERTS: A panel of experts can give their insight

Among tonight's strangers for our first game, someone who always wears a dress, an identical twin, a helicopter owner, a hot mom (C-Note:.... yep), an underwear model, someone who can't swim, an only child, and a perfume bottle collector. The identities...

PRO WRESTLER PIZZA MAKER
ARMY RANGER COUNTRY MUSIC SINGER
PRIEST SOAP OPERA STAR
SON OF NBA LEGEND 57 YEARS OLD
"TABITHA" BORN IN TOKYO
POWER LIFTING CHAMPION CIRCUS PERFORMER

A little explanation: one of these strangers is Erin Murphy, who played "Tabitha" on "Bewitched." Which one? That's for you to decide.

First, Matthew tries the power-lifting champion... #5? "That is NOT my identity." Mistaken Identity is gone. Matthew tries #6, country music singer. Is Aaron your country music singer? "Hats off to you." After an obviously-edited in performance, we learn that Aaron Tippin has sold 7 million albums worldwide. Will he play on? He does...

Next, born in Tokyo. Matthew seals #7. "Owatan des' ('That is correct!')." Matthew plays on...

Next, son of an NBA legend. He goes with #12... Kareem? (I say he's got it)... Is that your identity? "Count it." That's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Jr. up there. Matthew plays on.

Matthew tries 57-year old #11... "I am 57."

Time to meet the family, wife Myesha and mom-in-law Carol. He thinks #5 is the Army Ranger. Matthew uses the experts. Mark says #5, Dr. Deborah says #5, Christopher says #5. But Matthew goes with #9 as... the circus performer... "So sorry, but I'm not."

She's the pro wrestler.

So for the first time, Matthew goes home with nothing. Was #5 the Army Ranger? Yep. The other identities:

1 - Priest
2 - Soap Opera Star
3 - Circus Performer
4 - Power Lifting Champion
8 - That would be Erin right there...
10 - Pizza Maker

Sorry to see you go, Matthew, but that's the way we play. We gotta roll on. Maybe NICKIE MALOUF of Burbank, CA will have better luck. She's been in sales.

Among tonight's strangers for our second game, a lingerie lover, someone who's never done his own laundry, someone who drinks cocoa, a total slob, a former lifeguard, a grandfather, a salsa dancer, someone who likes ChapStick, and a ping-pong aficionado. The identities...

WITCH DOCTOR BOXER
ELEPHANT TRAINER NEW KID ON THE BLOCK
GO-GO DANCER "PRICE IS RIGHT" MODEL
ACCOUNTANT MAYOR
MALL SANTA PRO SURFER
PLAYMATE OF THE YEAR WORTH OVER $100 MILLION

Identify all 12 of them, and it's raining dollars...

Nickie tries the witch doctor first... She goes with #11... because he's wearing a... thing... on his head. Is Bill the witch doctor? Nickie: "Say yes!" Bill? "You have been HEALED!"

Next, the mall Santa. Looks like #5 to me. Looks like #5 to Nickie, too. "Ho ho ho!" Yes, Nickie, there is a Santa Claus, and he just gave you $5000.

Next, the pro surfer. Nickie pinpoints #10... Hannah, are you a pro surfer? "You are strutting!"

Next, for $10,000... Playmate of the Year... It's between #1 and #3. She goes with #... 1. Is Kara the Playmate of the Year? "In the flesh, I am the 2006 Playmate of the Year."

In the stands, husband Chuckles, daughter Debbie, and son Ken. Next, she thinks the TPIR model is #3, but she's going to lock in #2 as the boxer. Is Xavier the boxer? "No, I'm not the boxer." Mistaken Identity is gone. Nickie plays on, though. She uses the experts on the Price is Right model. Mark goes with #3. Dr. Deborah agrees. Chris agrees. Nickie seals it...

Well... her name is Phire Dawson. Need we say more. ... Okay, let's let HER say it. "(posing) I am!"

Nickie presses on... Go-go dancer... Tri-dentity leaves... 2, 4, and 9. Three guys. All we know is that #2 Xavier is not the boxer. She locks in Xavier as the go-go dancer.

For $50,000... or nothing... is Xavier the go-go dancer? "Go, go, go..." That's $50,000! She's halfway there. But she's got no help left.

And Nickie's going home. With $50,000, no less. The rest? She wanted to go on with #6 as the elephant trainer... and she would've won $75,000.

4 - Worth over $100 million. If he looks familiar, he should. That's Glenn Beavens, winner of season 1 of "The Real Gilligan's Island".
7 - That's Jordan Knight, a New Kid on the Block
8 - Professional boxer, a Golden Gloves champ in the lightweight
9 - Mayor
12 - Accountant

Makes you wonder who'll we'll meet tomorrow. Until then, don't be a stranger!
