Last time on "The Money List", Scott Seidler &
Harriett Davies managed to dispatch two teams in two games. They're standing on
$5000 with the right to compete in a third game for even more money.

doesn't want to be paired with a control freak. Mike & Charysse open the bid at
four. Scott & Harriett go with five. Charysse & Mike take it up to seven, and
the bidding ends there, and the list goes to the challengers.

round. Scott & Harriett start with seven. Charysse (who's been to Vegas more

the thing that matters is that they have $25,000 to share between them AND they
get to play again against new challengers.
