Kertes vs. Dietz
June 8

With this very show, TLC is crossing into uncharted territory... the realm of the game show.

The premise is simple... Four rounds of answer-questions-win-rooms, but be prepared to defend, because your family can have those rooms sniped from you at any time.

Tonight, it's the KERTES family (Kevin, Phoebe, Julie, Megan) vs. the DIETZ family (Kyle, Julie, Kassidy, Mike). Tonight, both of them are playing for a home office, a kids room, an exercise room, a dining room... and a new car! We'll get to the car later. Right now, though...

ROUND 1: THE HOME OFFICE

The first prize package includes a Broyhill home office package with a computer. That's the prize; now here's the game. It's a race to 250. Each correct answer is worth 50. Once you answer a question correctly in a category, you can bank the points you've earned or risk them. Once you bank points, they're yours to keep, no matter what, but a wrong answer will send the points to the other team. The first team to 250 will watch as their home is transformed literally right before their eyes.

NAME THAT TOON
Tossup Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
PHOEBE: Spongebob Squarepants. Correct for control.
50 What cartoon character loved to steal picnic baskets in Jellystone Park?
KERTES: Yogi Bear... Correct!
50 What cartoon canine has an alter ego named Joe Cool?
KERTES: Snoopy... Correct!
50 What animated character could go "to infinity and beyond?"
KERTES: Buzz Lightyear... Correct.

They lock the points in, giving them 150.

WET WORLD
Tossup What Pixar hit is about a clownfish...
PHOEBE: "Finding Nemo"... Correct for control
50 What bottled water has a picture of the French Alps on every bottle?
KERTES: Evian... Correct
50 What watery wonder is nicknamed the honeymoon capital of the world?
KERTES: Niagara Falls... CORRECT!

Kertes win round 1, and no sooner does that happen than the team get the go-ahead to start moving stuff up and out to make room for the new stuff.

But the question... Will it stay in your place or get stolen?

KERTES: 250 DIETZ: 0
Home office  

ROUND 2: EXERCISE ROOM

Included in this package is a complete home gym with HDTV and home theatre system.

LET'S TALK SPORTS
Tossup In ice hockey, what is it called when a player scores three times in a game?
KEVIN's answer of "hat trick" is ruled incorrect, because on the tossup, you are not allowed to confer... and he did. Control to the Dietz family...
50 Where can even a non-ball player get a breakfast called the Grand Slam?
DIETZ: Denny's .... correct for 50.
50 What color are the Live Strong bracelets made famous by Lance Armstrong?
DIETZ: Yellow... correct for 50

They lock the 100 away.

TWOSOMES
Tossup Maid Marian was the female companion of what legendary do-gooder?
MEGAN: Robin Hood... correct for control.
50 What Roman god of love is a winged baby whose bow-and-arrows bring couples together?

50 On-and-off couple Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are on what MTV reality show?

50 Transformers star Josh Duhamel is engaged to what Black Eyed Peas singer?

They lock it in for the lead, 200-100.

"LAND"ING PARTY
Tossup What plaid skirt is traditionally worn by men in Scotland?
JULIE K: Scotland.... Correct for control
50 Classic TV reruns such as "I Love Lucy", "Beverly Hillbillies", and "The Jeffersons" are all seen on what TV network?

And the crew goes to work. So far, the Kertes lead, 500-0 after two rounds.

KERTES: 500 DIETZ: 0
Home office
Exercise room
 

ROUND 3: THE DINING ROOM

Included are the dining room set and a visit from Big City Chefs... with their four-course dinners.

Points are doubled in this round, meaning that each question is worth 100, and it takes 500 to win the room.

ADD IT UP
Tossup If you are six feet tall, how tall are you in inches?
JULIE D: ... Time. Kertes family get control. Correct: 72.
100 What is the total when you add the current number of Jonas Brothers with the current number of Dixie Chicks?
KERTES: 6. Correct.
100 How many sides does the Pentagon have?
KERTES: 5... Correct!
100 If an octopus held one Snow White's dwarf in each tentacle, how many unused tentacles would he have?
KERTES: One... Correct!

They lock in the 300.

ADD IT UP
Tossup "I Love You, You Love Me" is often sung by what...
JULIE K: Barney... good for control.
100 On what TV show would you hear Elaine say "Yada yada yada" and be told "No soup for you?"
KERTES: Seinfeld... correct!
100 Everyone screamed "Norm!" when George Wendt entered the Boston bar known as what?
KERTES: Cheers... correct!

That puts the Kertes at 1000 to the Dietz'.. nothing. And the team gets the go-ahead... and Chef Brian is going to their place... or he could be headed to the Dietz' place.

KERTES: 1000 DIETZ: 0
Home office
Exercise room
Dining room
