Bet on Your Baby
by Chico Alexander

ABC: Saturday 8p/7C
Host: Melissa Peterman

  Up first for #5 is Chris Jr. (31 mos), the son of Heather & Chris Bourne. Our first game: H2Oh-No! Chris heads to the Dome, while Heather gets this: for $5000 will the water in Baby Chris' cup remain above the line when he finishes the course? Heather's got a lot of faith, betting on yes. PERFECT!

Korynn (38 mos), the chip off of Joanna & Byron Tyson, is about to go Kickin' It. Byron goes to play coach, while Joanna plays this: for $5000 how many goals will your husband get Baby Korynn to score in 90 seconds? She thinks she's a mini-Brandi-Chastain, so she bets 6 or more. She only comes up with 4.

Third up, Rebecca & Andrew Wright and their daughter, Evie (37 mos), take Every Little Step. Rebecca's going to be the coach, trying to get Evie to mimic four out of seven dances. He'll see Evie's moves, but not Rebecca's. Andrew will try to identify those, but first... How many of Baby Evie's dance moves can you identify? 1 for $2000, 2 for $3000, or 3 for $5000? Andrew is going for it! He gets... the twist... raise the roof... and the robot for the win!

Jacob (30 mos), aka Monkey, is going to swing with parents Apolka & Jonathan Weinman. It's Snack Time! Jacob has four snacks, an apple, a cupcake, broccoli, and a lollipop. For $5000, which snack will baby Jacob choose? The Weinmans go to cupcake... which is right!

... going right into it with our final toddler Mason (25 mos), the little dancer of Gina & Lee Bowman. They're going to get Spin Cycle. Lee gets to spin with Mason as many times as possible within 30 seconds. Will Mason spin at least 7 times in 30 seconds? Gina doesn't really have that much faith in her husband. She says no. Faith well placed. He only spun twice!

Now let's bring all five families out one more time to see who will go for the $50,000 in the College Round. The challenge that will determine who plays... the kids will have to remove toys from the floor to reveal a rebus. The person who rings and solves it correctly will move on. The puzzle is... "Baby on Board". Joanna's first on the buzzer... and she's a winner for the Tyson family! The other families leave with a year's worth of Luvs diapers and a $1000 Walmart gift card.

Now it's time for Joanna & Byron to smash for cash in the College Round. There are numerous Piggy Banks on the floor, with as little as $500 and as much as $25,000. Inside one, though, is a college fund worth $50,000. They'll get up to five hits. After each one, they'll decide to keep what they win or go on. The Tysons smash... #800 for $1000. Can't do any worse than that. Well, yeah you can, but they smash #4 for... $25,000! They decide to bail out with that!

The Graces were unable to get the #4 on a steal on the last survey, thinking it's a costume, but the game goes to sudden death.

Sudden death question: Name something a wife does to her husband when he starts nodding off in church. Graces would retain the victory by knowing it's Elbows/Nudges him (83).

Ronald & Deborah will try Fast Money this time. Ronald thought $250 is the most received in a birthday card, but the other four answers still got him 134. Deborah didn't need to think twice of her answers and she finally got it done in three answers, to give them a three-day total of $21,415.

Fast Money #1 answers
- Something important that you should keep in the glove compartment of your car: Registration
- What's the most cash you've ever received in a birthday card?: $100 (Deborah)

Randy & Frank
best buddy pickers
Susie & Michelle
designers & friends

Today's episode takes us to New England (The Elephant's Trunk in New Milford, CT, to be precise) in the pursuit of $5000. The teams will get a Flip List of three projects, $500 seed money, and one hour to shop at a flea market.

FLIP LIST:
- Industrial Design
- Work of Art
- Ugly Duckling

Frank & Randy want to turn mason jars into lighting fixtures plus work on a dough box and an antique corn cutter. Susie & Michelle counter with a dresser, a set of windowpanes, and an industrial blue desk.

The next day, the teams head to the Brooklyn Flea to sell their wares side by side. Biggest profit gets a check for $5000.

First thing to sell is... the dresser for $200 ($140 profit). The lights go for $225 ($203 profit). The industrial desk goes for $325 ($175 profit), giving them a $315-$203 lead. The corn cutter... will have to wait for now. And.... sold for $275 ($140 profit). Those are the only things that sell today.

Final score for $5000... with each team left with one item... the lights make the difference. It's $343 to $315 in favor of Randy & Frank!

TWO DAY CHAMPION

Mark Reeves
Bowling Green, KY
graduate student
Jerald Lentini
Silver Spring, MD
attorney

John kicks it off with $200 The Big "Board", where Jerald finds the Daily Double under $1000. He's going all-in on this: in the 1950s the Brown family took on this Topeka organization in the Supreme Court. "What is the Board of Education?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2800! At the half, he has $8000 to $5000. Mark has $2800 and the first go in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 British Lit. John finds the first Daily Double under $1600 14-Letter Words. Leading by $600, he bets $4000 on this: here's Faust, with this fellow in red, who's one heck of a bargainer. "Who is Mephistopheles?" RIGHT for $16,600! Mark counters with $2000 Seeking Asylums. He fronts the level on this: composer Bedrich Smetana died in asylum in this world capital. "What is Prague?" Correct for $13,600! It's going to be a close one with John at $15,000 to $13,600 for Mark. Jerald could play spoiler with $11,600.

Final Jeopardy! in "Science": for a 1953 paper Odile Crick drew the diagram showing the structure of this. Correct response: what is DNA?

The challengers are right. John... IS RIGHT as well! He's got $27,201, giving him $60,112. He plays for tournament on May 20. Meanwhile, we host a tournament of our own as College Championship action begins Monday.

This is where the dream ends and the game begins. It's the (slightly delayed) Kids Rule TPIR Family Spectacular, where for the first time ever, kids get to play the famous game show! They will be allowed to give their input, but ultimately, the adults will have the final say.

First up, Erin & Trevor Payne; Marc, Amanda & Danielle Schwartz; Caridad & Francesca Pfeiffer, and Tracey & Ethan Crates start us off with a WiiU/Xbox/PS3 package.

The Schwartzes take a $1559 trampoline. Now bounce to this, kids... it's a quartet of bikes, an HDTV, and an air hockey. Of course, we couldn't have kids and not play Eazy as 1-2-3. The air hockey: $700. The bikes... $$1480. The TV... $2400!

Christian & Carter Reid go down and up thanks to a $1472 quartet of iPads. They'll also win a Nissan Juke if they find the Secret X. The freebie goes down left. They get another one with a $50 ice pop maker. That one goes top right. The Secret X... BOTTOM.

Last shot for the Crates comes with sporting goods. The price: $1010. The winner... Sarah Castle & Sally LaVenido. Can they add on a pair of dunebuggies in Side by Side? They're either $9855 or $5598. They go with $9855... Sorry. They get another shot in the Showcase.

First up, adventure under the stars with camping gear, a trip to San Diego, and a ski boat. Top winners the Zamoras pass, and Sarah & Sally bid $25,000. The Zamoras get a trip to Jamaica and a Honda Civic. They bid $27,000. Actual price... $26,661. Actual price of Sarah & Sally's Showcase... $30,523 to win $31,533 in prizes!

  Eamonn Campbell (Manchester, VT)
He hasn't had a vacation in 15 years.
Vacation: Q8

He goes into this with $5,000...

[Q3 - Video Vault]
In 1986, when MTV was must-see television for music videos, which of these songs was a #1 hit despite lacking a music video?
A: Heart's "These Dreams"
B: Starship's "Sara"
C: Boston's "Amanda"
D: Berlin's "Take My Breath Away"

Eamonn asks the audience, and 39% say D, with 30% saying C, 20% saying B, and 11% saying A. He says he remembers watching a music video for D. With that, he jumps this one. The answer is C, and he won't get... $25,000. Ouch.

He makes it up to $16,000 before jumping the 6th, which only had $500. He then sees this...

[Q7 - Party Time]
Who often experimented on himself, including swallowing cocaine to prove it would stave off hunger and fatigue, as noted in the book "Cocaine Papers"?
A: Sigmund Freud
B: Karl Marx
C: Jonas Salk
D: Benjamin Franklin

Though he's leaning towards C, Eamonn walks with $8,000. A good move in this case, because it's A.

Liz Turella (Philadelphia, PA) - Retired realtor
In the past two years, she began taking lessons for art, piano, and ukulele, and she even joined a bowling league.
Vacation: Q1

She does get the vacation from that 1st question, which also had just $100. She soon jumps the 3rd, which had $7,000. She then faces this with $4,100...

In 2012, a countersuit against what rapper resulted in him owing over $2 million to the producers behind "The Carter," a documentary about his life?
A: 50 Cent
B: Lil Wayne
C: Drake
D: Mos Def

Liz needs help from the audience, and 58% respond with B. She goes with that, and it is indeed B, putting into her bank... just $500 more for a total of $4,600.

She then jumps the 6th, which had $2,000. Some big money along the way brings her total up to $44,600 heading into this...

[Q9 - Titillating Taxonomy]
Which of the following animals could rightly be called an undulating ungulate?
A: A wiggling weasel
B: A dancing duck
C: A wobbling wildebeest
D: A swinging seabass

Unsure of this, Liz walks with $22,300! As for the answer, it's C.
