Cab by Chico Alexander, GSNN
Air time: 6p ET/5p CT on Discovery
Host: Ben Bailey
Not one to toot our own horn here,
but Travis reviews "Cash Cab" today On the Buzzer. Let's go in
the cab with Jen and John, going 25 blocks. They need a mobile
shoutout. "A paper anniversary is when you've been married for
how long?" They go with one year... Correct for $75, en route
to a sweep. Going to the street for this. "Before entering
politics, who purchased the Texas Rangers in 1989?" They go
with George W... and they're right. And they've only traveled
nine blocks! They have $250 in time for a Red Light
Challenge... six of the G8 countries. US, Great Britain,
France, Russia, Japan... and Canada at the last second! That's
$500! They get their first strike here: Who was Tonya
Harding's infamous ex-husband who orchestrated the attack on
Nancy Kerrigan. It ain't Mark Hamill. It was Jeff Gillooly.
And they make it with $950! And Jen punches John. That's
love... but is it enough for the Video Bonus? No it isn't.
They're walking... And the Cab rolls on...
... to Carrie, Mark, and daughter
Adelaide (all from Texas), as they head to 50th. They sweep
the $25ers, but have troubles with this one for $50: with the
mascot called the Hoya, what is the oldest Jesuit university
in the United States? Adelaide says "Call somebody!" ... They
don't They're wrong. It's Georgetown. Listen to the kid...
They too have $250 coming up to the Red Light Challenge.
Question: four of six Jane Austen novels. Carrie breaks the
RLC record with "Sense and Sensibility," "Pride and
Prejudice," "Emma" and "Persuasion" in four seconds! They have
$500 banked... But they get razzed on this for $100: what
family of Venetian painters shares its last name with a
champagne cocktail? They miss Bellini. Good news, though. They
get $900 at Rockefeller Center to win! But they won't go for
the Video... No one wants the video...
Quickie round with Lisa Royce
going to 42nd and Third... doesn't end quick enough, as she
leaves the Cab after getting two out of five right. That's
three strikes, math experts. Thank you for playing, Lisa
Royce. Have a lovely walk.
Mexicanos Dijeron by Jason Hernandez, GSNN
Air time: 7p ET/6p CT on Telefutura
Host: Marco Antonio Regil
Buenas noches! Welcome to
100 Mexicanos Dijeron
you may have noticed something
different if you watched. Where are the models? Well
find out later. Meanwhile, we have the Pereyra family
with MARCO on their shirts against the Jimenez family.
Addy, Lulu, Erika, Arturo, and Memo make up the Pereyra
family. Gloria, Yoli, Beto, Javier, and Gilberto are
from the Jimenez clan. Vamos a jugar!
[5 answers] Cual es el tipo de rumor mas comun, que
pone en duda la reputacion de alguien? (What kind of
common rumor could damage someones reputation?) After
Addy Pereyra nailed the #1 answer, the next two ladies
got two strikes, including the answer of not having any
money! After Arturo got the #4 answer, they struck out,
and the Jimenez family couldnt steal!
1. Infiel (unfaithful or a cheater) 35
2. Su Orientacion Sexual (sexual orientation) 18
3. Es Una Loca/Chica Facil (a crazy person) 8
4. Esta Embarazada (pregnant) 6
5. Es Un Ratero (Hes a dirty rat!) 6
The Pereyra family led 41-0 after round one. After a
question about famous Mexican artists, the Jimenez
family only got two answers before the Pereyras stole
the 25-point bank to extend their lead to 66 points.
After Marco Antonio poked fun at Luis Miguel, he begged
him to come to the next Teleton!
The third question about sayings didnt fare too well,
either! The Pereyra family nabbed another small bank
worth 43 points. However, they now had a 109-0 lead!
Tough game so far!
Coming back from break, we have this question with 4
answers: Menciona algo relacionado con los hippies
(Name something associated with hippies). The Pereyra
family gains control with the #2 answer, and then after
getting the #1 and #3 answer, they strike out! Once
again, the Jimenez family couldnt steal, and they lose
the 134-point bank to give the Pereyras a huge 243-0
lead! Ay yay yay!
1. Cabello largo (long hair) 37
2. No se bañan (doesnt bathe, ew) 17
3. Drogas (drugs, man
4. Frase: Amor y Paz (Love and peace) 7
Round five asked what teachers receive. The Jimenez
family gained control with the #1 answer, and then they
gave the #2 and #4 answer before striking out! The
Pereyra family had a chance to win the game, but they
couldnt get it! Its now a 177-243 game.
1. Libros 34
2. Gises 15
3. Transporte 11
4. Pizarron 10
Its time for Muerte Subita! Three answers, one strike,
pass or play rules apply. Abierta por la mitad, que le
ves a una naranja? (Opened in half, what is inside an
orange?) The Jimenez family gained control got the #1
answer, and decided to play, and they got the #2
.but got a strike with el color! The Pereyra
family had a chance to steal the game with la pulpa,
but that wasnt up there! Here was the board:
1. Semilla (seeds) 76
2. Gajos (segments) 12
3. Jugo (juice) 6
Javier and Gil are going to play Dinero Rapido for
$100,000 pesos! HEY! Theres Roxy, one of the models
of them is missing. Hmm.
Javier goes first, and he gets 134 points! Muy bueno!
Marco is rushing because of time, so we go right into
it! Gil did okay, but he passed on one of the questions.
It didnt matter, because it took him three answers to
get to 220 points total! That gives the Jimenez family
$105,000 pesos, thusfar. Here we go with the second part
of the show!
The Jimenez family plays the returning champions, the
Salinas family with $10,000 pesos. Hey, theres Roxy
again! Its here that Marco Antonio explains why only
Roxy is here. Peony isnt going to be with us for a
while because she is having another baby! We all send
out hugs and kisses, and we wish her well! Of course, we
will still be seeing plenty of Roxanna on the set, yey!
On the Salinas family, we have Raul
Sandy, and Ivan. Raul nearly forgot Eugenias name!
Whoops! Marco will poke fun at this many times
throughout the show! Vamos a jugar
Marco pokes saying that he could imagine Raul saying,
Mexico! Ha! Okay, now that weve had our fun,
Marco asks besides a black cat, name something that is
bad luck. Raul nabs the #1 answer and control, and they
get the #2 answer before getting three strikes. The
Jimenez family couldnt steal, and the Salinas clan
takes an early 51 point lead. Here was the board:
1. Pasar Debajo De Una Escalera (going under a ladder)
2. Romper un Espejo (breaking a mirror) 17
3. Buho/Lechuza (an owl?) 10
4. Numero 13 (#13) 8
5. Cuervo (crow?) 7
Round two asks what technological advances modern cars
have. Yoli gets the #1 answer of a computer worth 45
points. However, the Jimenez family strikes out after
getting two more answers. The Jimenez family keep the
bank, and they now have a 59-51 lead!
Lets play round three! There are six answers on the
board for this question: Nombra un juego mecanico en
los parques de diversions que siempre te provoca mareos?
(Name a mechanical game or ride in a theme park
nails the #1 answer and the Salinas family takes
control. They get the #2, 3, and 5 answer along with two
strikes before Sandy answers, El Batman?!? Maybe at
but not in Mexico! The Jimenez family stole
the bank with the #6 answer and take 85 points to extend
their lead to 144-51. Here was the board:
1. Rueda De La Fortuna (The Wheel of Fortune) 37
2. Montaña Rusa (Russian Mountain) 28
3. Carrusel (Carousel) 10
4. Remolino (water ride) 7
5. Martillo (hammer ride) 5
6. Sillas Voladoras (swinging chairs) 5
Here we go with round 4 where the points are doubled!
Menciona un nombre de mujer que empieza con la silaba
la silaba so (A womans name that begins with so)
Javier gets the #1 answer with Sofia. The Jimenez family
then sweeps the board and wins the game, 326-51! Here
was the board:
1. Sofia 55
2. Socorro 16
3. Soledad 11
4. Sonia 9
Javier and Gil are going to play DR again for big money!
Todays flashback shows a contestant who thinks that
Pele was a famous Mexican athlete!?! Ay yay yay!
Its time for Super Dinero Rapido. First, its time for
Javier to pull out the candy from the basket
$5000, muy bien. $5000 is added to their total,
which now stands at $115,000 pesos. Javier gets only 112
points this time, but still a very good score!
It is not Gils turn to try and bring home another
100-grand to the Jimenez family. It looks like he did
well on this one! He goes through the first three
answers quite well, and adds another 43 points to get
the total up to 155. (Javier had all the #1 answers for
the first three answers) Now here we go
Marco asks a country that begins with the letter A.
Gil answered Alemania (Germany). Could that also be a
#1 answer? He got 31 on that excellent answer, but
Argentina was the #1 answer with 35 people saying that.
There goes the bonus. Marco then asks for an animal
found in the circus, and Gil said elephant!
He only needs 14 more points for the big bucks. La
he gathers the family around Gil and Marco! La encuesta
Marco walks towards the studio audience and thanks them
for keeping the show going for so long, and sends out
hugs and kisses to everyone. Okay, enough of this
silliness! La encuesta
48! Si, señor! The Jimenez family is, for some reason,
walking back behind their podium. Um, that was the
second part, come back out! Marco points out that they
were one answer away from getting a $25,000 peso bonus.
Anyway, they end the show with $215,000 pesos, and they
will be back tomorrow! For now, this is Jason Hernandez

Surely the Maningos can
get five figures today, as they play a six-man team...
Cary is pregnant. Round 1:
when people talk about "the big one", what are they
talking about (5)? Brenda buzzes in with #2, the
earthquake... Ed gets #3, war. No one gets the #1, as
the Coombs try to steal with ... the body part... What
body part, I don't know. Not there, the Maningos get 31
big ones. Other big ones: heart attack, death, lottery.
Round 2: something you
split (6). Cary fires with food, number one. The Coombs
also split the check, but can the Maningos split with
the bank with hairs? Nope, the Coombs get 66! Other
splits: firewood/log, pants/clothing (said), bowling
pins, the atom.
Double Round: something
you wouldn't want to lose at the beach (full board). Jim
gets wallet, #2, while Vic gets keys... #4. Christina
gets #3, sunglasses. Brenda gets #6, your children. Ed:
"Your shorts." Good answer... number one! The Coombs
want to see towel for the steal... Not there, Maningos
get 183. Other answer: cell phone.
Triple Round: someone who
died for a cause (4). Jennifer gets number one with MLK.
Joan of Arc and Jesus also make the board, but what
about Gandhi? BAM! Maningos win, 423-66!
Ed is sent to the
sidelines while Brenda and Christina play for the Fast
Money. Same outcome, as they add $690, giving them

The last two champs
couldn't keep the crown for more than a day. Bob looks
like he might be able to break the skid. He starts with
$200 The European Past, where we find the early Daily
Double under $1000. Nick bets all of his $1000 on
this:July 14, 1789 was the Marquis de Launay's last day
as governor of this edifice. "What is the Bastille?"
THAT... would've doubled him to $2000. Instead, he's
back at zero from Versailles. But no matter as we have a
tight game at the half: Wendy and Nick are tied with
$2600, and not too far behind is Bob with $2400, who
gets to start Double Jeopardy!...
... with $400 Rome (his
other choices: The Sopranos; 6 Feet, Under; Deadwood,
Deaf Poetry, and It's Not TV...). The last two in play:
The Sopranos and Deaf Poetry. First, $2000 Deaf Poetry.
With $9000, Wendy bets the level on this: deafness
didn't stop Joachim du Bellay's 115 poems, styled after
this Italian for whom a style of sonnet is named. "Who
is Petrarch?" Right for $11,000. Bob finds the second
Daily Double under $1200 The Sopranos. He bets $100 on
the soprano born in 1923 who made her debut at the
Athens Opera at age 17. "Who is Maria Callas?" Right for
$12,100. He ends with $13,700 to Nick's $11,400 and
Wendy's $11,000. Game can go any way.
All that and we don't
even get an Ali G category...
in "World History": this person was the
reigning monarch of Great Britain when the US national
anthem was written. Correct question: Who was George
Bob's the only one to get
it right, as he returns tomorrow, having won $22,801
today, with $31,600.
Price is Right by Travis Schario, GSNN

(markets may vary)
Host: Bob Barker
Sit down! Get comfortable!
You're in for a treat! Let's hope so, because after
yesterday's clunker, we're due.
First up, Diana Wagner,
Patricia Youngmar, Emily Price, and Anthony Trace. First
item to bid on... a catamaran that costs $3195. So much
for being on budget mode, Don. Patricia wins it, and the
Kansan is going on a Shopping Spree with this objective,
with $5500 to blow buy three of the following: a banjo,
a dinette, coolers, and a motorscooter. The dinette is
$1288... The scooter is $2324.... the banjo is... $2139!
Three lamps are next, as
Emily wins a chance at a Chevrolet Malibu! The game is
Let'em Roll, and the products are a $4.99 pack of
Theragesic Plus, Hot Pockets, and Coricidin HBP. She
says the Hot Pockets are lower... at $2.29, she is! The
Coricidin is higher, she says... She's right. So she
gets three rolls. First roll... 2 cars and $4500. Second
roll... 2 MORE cars and $1500... Third roll... CAR!
Anthony gets a set of
ski/snowboard equipment and a chance at a Coke machine
replica and a floor clock. The Coke machine is $3925, so
the sign says. The floor clock is $4995, so the sign
says... But are they true or should we do the Switch?
Anthony leaves them be... Should've switched. The big
winner of the half, Emily, is switching her place in the
line for a place in the Showcase...
Diana, the last of the
first-four, finally wins a sofa and a chance to go to
Amsterdam. All she needs to do is Pick-a-Number. The
price: $29_0. The numbers: 2, 7, and 9. She goes for the
7.... and she's a winner!
I. De Lon Pearson, Sr.
gets dumbbells... and speaking of heavy things... It's
time to bring out the Plinko board! With chips from Bob,
a $38 drink maker, and a $30 buffet grill, he wins...
Finally, once Bob
relearns how to say his name in the context of
bobbleheads, Leah Benjamin wins an encyclopedia. Let's
play Any Number for a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt OR a
collection of small appliances... or whatever spare
change was dropped in front of CBS this morning. First
number in the car.. 1. First: 8. Appliances. Then: 2.
Appliances. 7? Piggy bank. 6... CAR! 9... Appliances. So
she gets appliances, but the car was $14,615. Speaking
of wheels, Diana joins top winner Emily in the Showcase.
And where can we get one
of those bobbleheads?
First up: how to remember
things... with a trip to Scottsdale, AZ and two hot-air
balloon rides, a riding lawn mower, and a waverunner.
Emily passes to Diana, who bids $14,322. Emily meanwhile
gets Cinderella... the CBS true Hollywood story. First
of all, she cleaned with a steam carpet cleaner, cooked
with a gas range, and high-tailed it back after the ball
in a 2006 Ford Focus. Emily's bid: $18,000. Actual
price: $16,448. So far as Diana doesn't go over, she'll
win. Her price... $15,303! She's the big winner today
Stats: even, $54,344.

Quite the show we saw
yesterday, eh? Well, at least it ended with Tessa Neeley
(Houston, TX) getting to $2,000 with her lifelines
intact. And today, she goes for more...
Tessa is still having a hard time believing that this is
happening. She actually asked her boyfriend Miguel (who
is in the audience) to keep pinching her after
yesterday's show, to see if she'd somehow wake up from a
dream. Well, it's not a dream, it's reality; and the
What is the term for the formal hearing in which a
criminal defendant may plead guilty or not guilty?
B: Voir dire
Tessa asks the audience. An overwhelming 90% of the
studio audience says A, but in the AIM poll, 33% says A,
and 32% says D. But such a big number in the studio poll
is hard to ignore, so Tessa trusts the studio audience
and goes with A... and they're right! Moving on...
By definition, bariatrics is a branch of medicine
concerned with the treatment of what condition?
B: Hair loss
Tessa decides to call her father Ted (no, not the Father
Ted from a certain Britcom), but he doesn't know. So
Tessa then goes to the 50:50, which leaves C and D.
She's leaning towards C, but she's not sure enough, so
she walks with $4,000. Good thing, too; it was D.
Next up is Heidi Schuessler (Seattle, WA). She actually
had a nightmare about the show, where she misspelled a
word, somehow causing her to get the $200 question
wrong, and her boss fired her for it, since she's a book
editor, and book editors shouldn't be misspelling words.
Hopefully, reality isn't so cruel to her, as Heidi
starts by knowing that the Mayflower, which safely
carried the Pilgrims to Massachusetts in 1620, was a
sailing ship (and maybe also a love machine, but that's
another story). She safely gets through the $200
question, as well as the rest of the lower tier, and she
eventually faces this...
Other than Antarctica, what continent has the smallest
B: South America
C: North America
Heidi is leaning towards A, but she decides to use the
50:50. It leaves A and B. She says A... and she's right!
Appearing in over 2,600 periodicals around the globe,
what is the world's most widely syndicated comic strip?
C: Dennis the Menace
D: The Family Circus
Heidi decides to ask the audience. The studio audience
is split, as A and D are tied with 38% each, but in the
AIM poll, 73% says A. Not content with this, she then
calls her friend's husband Tom. (Why is it that many
players don't put more faith in us AIM users, especially
in situations like this?) But Tom doesn't give an
answer. Then, after some more thought, Heidi trusts the
AIM audience, saying A... and it's A! Then, another
question later, and she has $25,000!
That's all for today. Heidi will be back tomorrow.
