Episode 5 - December 22

Last night on "Identity", Nicci Guzik would've left with nothing, were it not for the fact that she won $250,000.

First up tonight is SETH CUTLER from Massapequa, NY.  He's a teacher who teaches teachers how to change math.

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

Seth 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, a perfect score on her SATs, a meditator, "Elbows", a father of 10, a fast car driver, a giver, a spoon collector, and someone who likes a good scare. The identities...

MASTERS IN LINGUISTICS CONTORTIONIST
BORN IN INDIA SPECIAL OPS OFFICER
VENTRILOQUIST WEIGHS 152 LBS.
LIFEGUARD PRO JUMPROPER
MICHAEL JACKSON JUROR HAND MODEL
ROCKET SCIENTIST OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST

For $1000, Seth goes with the lifeguard. Is it #6 William? "Congratulations."

Next, for $5000, Seth tries to pick the ventriloquist. He seals #1 Bruce... I think it's a safe bet to say... he's wrong. "Seth, when I talk, I move my mouth. Sorry." Mistaken Identity is gone. He tries again with born in India. He seals in #7... "Seth... I was raised in Kentucky... But I WAS born in India." He plays on.

Next, for $10,000... the contortionist... He thinks #9 is slinky, but #4 is athletic. He uses the Tri-dentity for pro jumproper.  That's #4, #8, or #9. He seals #4 as his jumproper. Tony... are you a jumproper? He is handed a jumprope... and Tony goes to town. And Seth goes to $10,000!

Seth wants to know about #1, Bruce. He saw "The Right Stuff" the most and has two dogs. He uses the experts on Special Ops. Mark gives it to #11. Dr. Deborah goes with #11. Chris says it's #11. Seth goes with it... And he also finally gets #1. He seals #11 as the Special Ops Officer. "Seth, if I tell ya, I'd have to kill ya." That's $15,000! He recently served a one-year tour in Iraq.

Time to meet the family. Barry Schwartz, Terry the sister in law, and Tony. They tell him.. #1, Bruce, Olympic Gold Medalist. Seth goes with it... Bruce?

"Seth, today, you finally win the gold." That's Bruce Jenner!

Seth's still in the game for $50,000 or nothing.... He seals #12 as the Michael Jackson juror. Ellie, are you the juror? "Guilty, your honor!" She calls it 6 1/2 months of the worst time of her life. Seth's halfway to half a mill. And that's all he's good for. He wins $50,000.. The rest of the identities...

Seth wanted to go with #8 as the ventriloquist... He would've been right.

2 - hand model
3 - contortionist
9 - Masters in linguistics
5 - rocket scientist
10 - a 152-pound runway model

And Seth's identity, $50,000 winner. Next up, TAMI JONES from West Hills, CA. She's a management consultant who thinks she's good at this.

In the gallery today... someone who had a high school GPA of 3.75, someone who is fluent in Arabic, a rock collector, a champagne and caviar connoisseur, someone who's blunt, a philosophy major from Berkeley, a singer, and a martial artist.

The identities...

HAS 5 KIDS CRUISE SHIP PERFORMER
GUITARIST VIRGIN
FIRE EATER PRO DODGEBALL PLAYER
FORMER CHILD STAR MISS USA 2006
US MARINE COLLEGE PROFESSOR
AUCTIONEER MORTICIAN

Tami starts with Miss USA 2006. She whittles it down to #1 and #5. She goes with #5... and a few people disagree. Is Tanya our Miss USA 2006? "I'm flattered, but no." Mistaken Identity is gone. She tries #1 next... Boos from the audience. Okay, how about the guitarist? She seals #2... "Yes I am the guitar player."

Next, Tami asks the experts on the virgin. Mark whittles it down to #6 and #7. Dr. Deborah says probably #6. Chris makes a pure guess at #1. But Tami goes with #11 as the Fire-Eater. Devon... comes out of the gallery. Penn hands her a torch. TASTY.

Penn has a taste before we go to break.

We're back, and Tami's mind is racing... She says #7 has five kids. Is Lori a mother of five? "No." She's a mortician. Sorry, but Tami leaves empty handed. The rest of the board...

1 - How could you not guess Tara Conner, Miss USA 2006?
3 - Semper Fi.
4 - Cruise ship performer
5 - SHE has five kids.
6 - He IS a virgin.
8 - ... and Jerry Mathers as the Beaver.
9 - Auctioneer
10 - College professor
12 - Pro dodgeball player.

Thanks for watching all this week. Goodnight, and don't be a stranger!
