We finish Visine week with Shannon Buckholtz, who just turned 40 and is still single. I bet a nice $500,000 dowery will help with that - or maybe tickets to their favorite baseball team and cash totalling $7,500. Shannon had case #8, but she now has case #22 for her buddies (and doggy pals) at Narcotics Detention at the Police Office. #7 (LaToya) - $50,000. #19 (Jerry) - $10,000. #8 (Sheri). Shannon gave away....$1,000, so that could be a good trade-off. #5 (Meg) - $25. #13 (Vonda) - $25,000. First offer: $20,000. NO DEAL!

Let's sniff open 5 more cases. #17 (Ryan) - $100. #21 (Armanda) - $10. #14 (Susan) - PENNY! #11 (Nolen) - $75,000. #6 (Mike) - $200. The Top 3 are still in play, so the offer's going to go up: $35,000. NO DEAL! 4 cases to open - but only 3 big amounts left. Be careful...

#20 (Jeffery) - $5,000. #1 (Meghann) - VISINE! #16 (Christina) - $100,000. #4 (Lauren) - $500,000. Those last 2 picks completely change the game around and now the board is bordering on lethal:

$1, $5, $50, $300, $400, $500, $2,500, $250,000
OFFER: $15,000

NO DEAL! 2 cases to open. Must avoid the Rapping Dragon case.

#9 (Kelly) - $50
#15 (Amy) - $2,500. Disaster averted.

$1, $5, $300, $400, $500, $250,000
OFFER: $32,000

Shannon gets to talk to the banker, who calls her crazy if she does't take the offer. The rest of the contestants want her to take the deal. She wants to have enough money to adopt a child - and she has it. DEAL for $32,000! But could the child have had more video games? Next 2 cases...#21 (Linda) - $400 and #2 (Kara) - $500. Yes, the kid could have had more video games (OFFER: $49,000). Next case...#10 (Tiffany) - $5 (OFFER: $88,000). Next case...#3 (Kenneth) - $300 (OFFER: $121,000). Shannon's case had...$1. Shannon made a great deal and leaves with mommy money. We'll see who leaves with more money on Monday.

Host: John O'Hurley
On the Web
Reynoso (Maria, Veronica, Jay, Karina, Oscar)
$20,775, two days
Hazelip (Amy Rae, Debbie, Tim, Karisa, Amber Lee)

Round 1 (7): something that makes exercising more bearable when you're doing it. Maria slams in music at #1. A partner, TV and results are there. But what about water? The Hazelips want to see it. Got it for 85. Other answers: proper clothes, exercise equipment.

Round 2 (5): an occasion where people might countdown from 10 to 1. Veronica fires with New Year's Eve (given by Debbie) for #1. Birthday is also there. The Hazelips want to launch a rocket... Got it for 147. Other answers: surgery, race.

Double (full board): famous man you wish would kiss and tell. Tim gets the big one, Brad Pitt. George Clooney also makes it onto the board. Will Hugh Hefner do that for the steal? Nope. Hazelips get 235. Other answers: Will Smith, Bill Clinton, Harrison Ford, Johnny Depp.

Triple (4): something that to a cat would be a delicious entree. Karina gets #1, a fish. A mouse and a bird are also there. Hazelips can lock it up with cat food. No! Reynosos get 276. Other answer: liver.

Sudden Death: something that might be referred to as "pot-bellied". That's Amber Lee. "Pig." Winner, 421-276.

Fast Money: Tim & Amber Lee get 92 for $460.

  Diane rounds out the week defending her title.
Diane Wilshere
Manassas, VA
actor & playwright
Jennie-Rebecca Falcetta
Manchester, CT
assistant professor of English
Kevin Rainforth
Orchard Park, NY
substance abuse counselor

Diane starts with $200 Bananarama. At the TV time out, Kevin leads with $2600 to Jennie-Rebecca's $1600. The champ is currently on $400.

Kevin finds the first Daily Double under $1000 Yes. He bets $1600 on this: it sounds like you're saying hello, but this is how you say "yes" in Japanese. "What is 'hai'?" Hai... for $5000! He still leads at the half with $7800 to Jennie's $3400 and Diane's $800. Diane's score gives her the go-ahead to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 "Pop" Goes the Category. Kevin finds the first Daily Double under $1600 I Like Your Style. Kevin leads out with $2200 on this: this 1890s furniture style was inspired by the wood furnishings of California churches. "What is mission style?" Correct for $16,000! Jennie-Rebecca finds the other under $1600 Zodiac Arrest. She bets $5000 on this: the Age of Aquarius follows this zodiacal age, which in the west corresponds to the Christian era. And... nothing. It was the age of Pisces, leaving her with $5600, where she ends the round. Diane has $3600, but at $16,000, it's Kevin's game to lose.

Remember, all this week, you have a chance to win one of 25 spots on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure with Alex in the Galapagos Islands. All you have to do is go to and enter tonight's Final Jeopardy! category....

"Authors' Lesser-Known Novels"

The clue: a manipulative widow goes husband-hunting in "Lady Susan", finally published in 1871, 54 years after her death. Correct response: who was Jane Austen?

Everyone gets it. Kevin didn't have to bet anything. He didn't. He wins $16,000. Diane leaves with $20,801.

  It's been a heck of an International Week, but now we've got to find a winner!
Allen Cunningham
David Benyamine
John Juanda
John Phan
"Yukon" Brad Booth
BLINDS: $600/$1200 Ivan Demidov

Ivan just took the chip lead as Allen goes all-in with A-J. Ivan... calls it with A-Q. Flop with $64,650 on the line... 3-4-10h. Allen flops the heart draw. Turn: Js. Ivan needs a queen or a king sans heart to kick the American to the curb. River: 6d. Allen doubles up to $64,650 and the chip lead.

Allen plays A-5h against John's K-9. Flop: 6-9-K. Two hearts. John goes all-in with two-pair. Allen calls with a heart draw. Turn: 4c. Allen needs that fifth heart to knock John out. River... 6d. John doubles to $73,450.

Allen's all-in with A-Kd. John's called with pocket rockets. Flop: 10-Q-10. Turn: Qd. Jack sends the money to Allen. Anything else knocks him out. River: 3s. And John Juanda and Ivan Demidov are heads up!

Ivan's all-in with J-9. John calls with K-8. A literal coin-flip before the flop: 7-5-10. John's 2-1 now. Turn: 6s. Ivan needs a Jack or an 8 to complete the straight and force another hand of poker. River: Ac. And John Juanda is this week's Poker After Dark champion.

We're taking a break next week. Enjoy the director's cut tomorrow.

Suzanne is a return tripper, as she was disadvantaged in an earlier episode.

Categories in round 1 are Places, Hollywood, The Past, Music, Whatever, and Food. Bryan insta-calls on Kat's question about the Grand Slam tournament Roger Federer never won (French Open). Suzanne gets three from Food, Places, and the Past. Mary also has the Past and Places, but Whatever gives her a ticket to the next round. It's a close game with America behind, $1850 to $2250.

America stumps twice in Hot Pursuit, but Suzanne gets her revenge with a win, 6-4. So far, she's sitting on $4250 to $2850 for America.
