Randell & Lindsey
December 5

This is Randell Leoncio, a former Marine Corpsman from San Diego who lost a leg in Iraq and is now studying to become a prosthetics doctor. His sister Lindsey is playing the game tonight for thousands of dollars to help him get to his goal and get his life back together. His determination in the face of battle is the definition of the credo, "Never leave a teammate behind". For his action, he received a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart.

Today is all about Randell and his heroism, because Randell Leoncio... 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 Randell. 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: Addictive. Going straight to coffee and chocolate. Next clues are going to cost you...

Lindsey is thinking about a social network now. Button is lit. Lindsey locks in FACEBOOK.... For $6000.... THAT IS CORRECT! (other clues: Harvard, Farmville, Millions of Friends, The Social Network, Mark Zuckerberg). That is money in the bank, no one's going to touch it. But let's add to it.

Dinner continues in San Diego. Joining Lindsey in studio are Colleen (his "second mama"), Sgt. Chris Lawrence, and her coconspirator, little sister Audrey.

CLUE #4 - $7500: Snickers
CLUE #3 - $50,000: National Treasure
