Alice & Ja'ire
November 28

This is Alice Hattley, a mother and community leader who could use a hand up in helping to build up their South Central LA community. Assisting in that endeavor, her daughter Ja'ire.

Alice Hattley and her husband started a nonprofit out of their home church, helping out with food and clothes. Three years ago, Alice's husband passed away, leaving the nonprofit's future in severe doubt, especially when they lost her house. But even as these dark forces surround her, she still continues to help out those less fortunate than herself.

Simply put... Alice Hattley... We're playing for thousands of dollars in cash tonight, because.... YOU DESERVE IT!

Here's how it works. There are five who/what/where puzzles, worth, in order, $10,000, $25,000, $50,000, $100,000, and $250,000. In total, there is $435,000 to be won, and every penny of whatever she wins goes directly to Alice. Each puzzle has 10 clues. The first one is free, but the others will have to be bought with a portion of the total puzzle's value. You will have one - and ONLY one - guess at the puzzle. If you are correct, whatever money is left is yours to give no matter what. If you are wrong, you forfeit the rest of the cash.

The clues to be bought will be assigned to a random dollar value. She will have to pick a clue and give back the corresponding dollar amount in order to see it.

$10,000 ROUND: WHAT

FREE CLUE: Holiday Decoration

Ja'ire can't think of garlands, so we're going to split up the cash.

$100 - $200 - $300 - $400 - $500 - $1000 - $2000 - $2500 - $3000

CLUE #2 - $100: Inspired Many Songs

Now she's thinking about Christmas trees...

CLUE #4 - $400: Courtroom

... not thinking about Christmas anymore.

CLUE #7 - $3000: Red & White Stripes

Starting to think about the flag.

CLUE #6 - $300: On the Moon

Ja'ire locks in AMERICAN FLAG... For $6200.... THAT IS CORRECT! (other clues: Stars, Uncle Sam, Pledge Allegiance, Betsy Ross, Patriotic Symbol). That is money in the bank, no one's going to touch it. But let's add to it.

Right now, Alice is getting her hair did for her big moment to come later in the show.

Cab cars.... Subway cars... ELEVATOR cars? Remember, no elevators have a floor 13, because it's considered bad luck. But is it good luck for Ja'ire? ... IT IS! (Other clues: Shaft, "Love In An...", Lift, Instead of Stairs, Going Up?)

ROUND TOTAL: $18,200
GAME TOTAL: $24,400!

And I know we're only on show #2, but it looks like ABC is prepping for a best-case scenario. That said... if you would like to play for a deserving person in your life, go to abc.com/casting for the details.

About Clue #1: the Starbucks logo features the image of a mermaid. Technically a siren.
