Welcome back to Night #2 of this holiday special
presentation. And what makes it so special? We get to see how stiff Ben Bailey
looks in a suit. (Sorry, Ben, we still love you!) (C-Note: at least we know he
Oh yes, almost forgot, there's the NBC game show Santa. He needed something to
do after Minute To Win It fell through, so to speak.
OK, let's get on with it? Last night's hero Jared Young, a volleyball coach from
Conway, Arkansas, dropped five of his opponents. He took home $49,000 and
decided to drop himself out through the floor. Then in the speed round Catherine
Smith decided to walk out through the door with $6,000. Another hero and another
group of strangers are ready to find out who faces the drop tonight and ...
who's still standing?
TONIGHT'S CHALLENGER: CHRISTA BAKER (Pearisburg, VA - Cosmetics account manager)
She hosts pub trivia contests, so maaaaybe she'll have a shot at this? Time to
MATCH #1: CHRISTA VS. #3 CLARISSA BARTON (Palm Springs, CA - Nonprofit intern)
Clarissa's hoping to make a profit here at Christa's expense. And it's Christa
who faces the first pressure with this as her 2nd:
What is the main ingredient in tartar sauce?
M _ _ _ N _ _ _ S _
She needed to spell it out, literally. But MAYONAISSE came out, so we move on to
Metric measurement equal to approximately 2.2 pounds
_ I _ _ G _ _ _
Clarissa figures out "gram", but what's the beginning? "Milligram... Mintogram?"
Math takes another victim. *sigh*
CHRISTA WINS: $15,000
MATCH #2: CHRISTA VS. #1 PRICE TROCHET (Brentwood, CA - Barista)
He Tivo's 4 game shows a day, and he was on the Dean's List in college. Andrea
heard that and said, "Hey, there's your twin!"
SPECIAL ROUND: WHAT A MONSTER (Questions all about monsters)
I guess "Monsters, Inc." wasn't available as the category name. Well, the first
monster is Price's 2nd question:
Monster Energy Drink invites you to "Unleash the" what?
_ _ _ _ T
After babbling Sunny D, Price is fishing... "power, light, fright, fight,
What? Price, you shame us. It was BEAST. Leave and never come back!
CHRISTA WINS: $10,000
$25,000 in the bank now.
MATCH #3: CHRISTA VS. #6 ELENA CRABTREE (Phoenix, AZ - Beauty queen)
I doubt nothing in this game, so no dissing the beauty queen.
Both start out well, and then Elena faces her 4th question:
What "Annie Hall" director said he wanted to achieve immortality by not dying?
_ O _ _ Y _ L _ _ _
Nothing? Oh well, Elena, you win tonight's Miss Congeniality award, and a
collection of WOODY ALLEN films.
CHRISTA WINS: $15,000
Building a really nice bank now. $40,000 with 7 to go. Onward!
MATCH #4: CHRISTA VS. #2 ADAM NEDEFF (Vienna, WV - Pro wrestling ring
And on an additional note, he's also the
webmaster of the Game Show Utopia at
www.game-show-utopia.net. Shameless plug, I know. After introducing Ben "Bam
Bam" Bailey, we start this no-holds barred match.
SPECIAL ROUND: SUPERCHARGED (Questions all contain the word "Super".)
They trade headlocks, and Christa is whipped to the ropes with her 4th question:
A superhero's partner OR a brand of smartphone
_ _ D _ _ _ _ K
She's freezing, and in a instinctive moment of desperation, she PASSES, and
instantly blurts out "SIDEKICK!" right after. Pressure got to her there, let's
see if she can get back on her feet.
They come to blows again when Adam faces his 7th question:
Alabama's NASCAR Superspeedway:
_ _ L _ _ _ _ G _
Adam will be spending a lot of TALLADEGA nights back in the Midwest. And Christa
scores the pinfall.
CHRISTA WINS: $10,000
All big wins so far. Now she's got an even 50, and one away from the halfway
MATCH #5: CHRISTA VS. #4 VANESSA "BRING IT ON" BARNETT (Flint, MI - Journalist)
After Adam came along, everyone wants in on the nickname act. Seriously, she
called herself that.
I never knew that Monopoly's bank held $20,580. Interesting. That was Vanessa's
2nd, and here's her 3rd:
Type of eye doctor who doesn't perform surgery
_ P _ _ M _ _ _ _ _ T
She can see well enough that it's OPTOMETRIST. So we move on to Christa's 5th:
"Modern Warfare" and "Black Ops" are editions of what video game series?
_ _ _ L _ _ _ _ T _
Christa doesn't play, apparently. PASS! Does Vanessa play?
"Seal of Outs... Seal of Night... Oval of--"
Everyone in the audience knew. We found two people in this country besides my
family who doesn't play CALL OF DUTY. See, we exist!
CHRISTA WINS: $20,000
The big one! And now we're at the halfway point with $70,000 in the bank. NOW...
will Christa quit or add a Pass back to her arsenal and face the final 5?
CHRISTA'S CHOICE: WALK OUT
CHRISTA WINS: $70,000
Christa's love walked out on her and took the house with him. Now, Christa can
start searching for a house of her own again. And... she... OK, she'll drop out
of here. Enjoy the money, Christa!
