Round 1: 100 single
women, something that's nicer to come home to than a man (5)?

Jeopardy! by Chico Alexander, GSNN

Host: Alex Trebek
$36,002, two days
Scotch Plains, NJ
A background in education
seems to be paying off for Eric, but can he do it again?
He starts with $200 Old Names on the Map. At the TV time
out, it's another two man race between Eric ($3600) and
Brett ($2200). Lauren had some jack earlier, but the
house took it back.
Ken finds the Daily Double
under $800, Civil War Times. He bets $1500 on this: of
the 11 Confederate states, this one was far north. "What
is Virginia?" That... would've been right. He drops to
$1500 on Kentucky. He rebounds to $3300, while Eric
leads with $5800, leaving Lauren to start the Double
Jeopardy! round with $2200...
... and she does so with $400 Bridging the Literary Gap,
finding the Daily Double under $1600 Lizards. She bets
$1200 on one of the two poisonous lizards in the world
and the largest in the US. "What is the Gila monster?"
Right for $5400. Last category in play is Firefighting,
and the second Daily Double is under $1600. Eric bets
$5000 to retake the lead. The clue: take the "U" out of
scuba to get this full name of firefighting gear used to
go where oxygen is scarce. "What is self-contained
breathing apparatus?" Right for $16,400! But Ken takes
the lead at the end with $16,900. Lauren is still very
much alive with $9800.
Final Jeopardy! in "Famous Painters": he said "You
could find me anytime at Fournaise's", a restaurant
right on the Seine. Correct question: who was Pierre-Auguste
Eric is the only one right, as he bets everything to win
$32,800, giving him $68,802 for three days.
Price is Right by Chico Alexander, GSNN
Air time: 11a ET/10a CT on CBS
Host: Bob Barker
If you're a webhead, then
you know that this is the "Road to Price" episode of
TPIR, as documented on the CBS innertube reality webshow
"Road to Price". Go to cbs.com/innertube for more info
on that. The question now, now that the road ends at 33,
will any of our New Hampshire teens see the light of TV
We start with
Ashley Thornton, Connie Burton, Shirley Johnson, William
Pelletier Jr., and a card/console table worth $195.
Deliver it to William's spot, as William delivers
himself to the stage for a treadclimber, a gas pump
replica, and a wine bar. The game is One Wrong Price.
The treadclimber is marked at $2999. The gas pump is
marked at $3651. The wine bar is marked at $1451. Which
is wrong? William goes with the treadclimber... but it's
$2999. Should've fueled up.
Shirley wins a $700 metal
detector as well as a chance at a Chevrolet Monte Carlo
playing Pocket Change. Numbers: 2 4 3 0 1 8. First
number... 2. Price: $21,340. It can be hers for $2.00,
though. She starts with a quarter... then a nickel...
then another nickel... then a dime... then another dime.
Not even close. Sorry.
Flatware, $1185 worth,
goes to Ashley, as she tries for a living room group in
Cliff Hangers. The prizes she'll play with... a steam
iron, a hot drink maker, and a pedometer radio. She
starts with a bid of $50 on the steam iron. Price...
$24. Don't need a calculator to figure out what happens
We'll see Shirley in the
Showcase after her impressive Showdown run, as we go to
round 4 and a GPS receiver. Stephen Jackson wins the
$985 set and a chance at a trip to Savannah, GA. Drove
through there, it's beautiful. The game is
Pick-a-Number, and the board is $3_17. Is it a 2, 6, or
8 that's going in that blank? Stephen goes with 6... and
it's 2. Darn.
not-rare-but-really-scarce scene of Rich doing what
FremantleMedia pays him to do, Sarah Wiener is a winner
with a $1399 LCD HDTV/DVD. Now let's go grocery
shopping... for a spa? It can happen in the Grocery
Game. The groceries: Citracal Creamy Bites, Chips Ahoy!
cookies, Hot Pockets, Nature Valley granola bars, and
Quickie Soap & Scrub. She takes 2 Hot Pockets... $2.49 a
pop. That's $4.98 in the bank. Next, 5 cookies, 55¢
each. That gives her $7.73. The 4 granola bars put her
at $20.89, no matter what the cash register says.
Connie finally gets out
of Bidders' Row thanks to a $2940 grandfather clock. She
gets a shot at a Ford Escape in One Away. The setup is
$32,528. She goes with $23,619. We get one... honk.
That's it. This one's a gimme. We switch to $21,437, and
that's another win!
And that's not all for
Connie. She, who gets over a game-time injury of one
broken nail, gets $1000 on the Big Wheel and a spot in
the Showcase as top winner. First up, a visit from the
"slightly attentive" guardian angel, who bestows upon us
the bounty of an electric range, a trip to St. Croix,
and a Chrysler PT Cruiser. She bids $31,000. Shirley
gets a dining room group with dinnerware, picnic
baskets, and two off-road motorcycles. She bids $20,000.
Actual price.. $16,819. Over Shirley goes...
Actual price of Connie's Showcase... $22,579. Over
Connie goes. And we have ourselves one of them double
overbid shows we hate so much.
Also, we get no face time
in Contestants' Row for the Road to Price Nine, save for
Alden, who's going to Iraq right after this. All the
best and Godspeed from all of us at the 'net.

Magdalena, Margarita, Monica, Jorge)
Fernando, Martha, Elizabeth, Cesar)
The Grijalvas of Phoenix
have risen to take the lead after three, 150-80. Double:
something you normally tell your kids that they
shouldn't take to school (4). Elizabeth's phone is #4.
Knives (and all weapons for that matter) are #1 for
Monica. Toys and candy round out the sweep for 278.
Triple: an animal that is
hunted in the forest (4). Cesar hunts bears for #2.
Deer, though, is the big one for Jorge. Lions are #4,
but can the Rodriguez steal with lambs? No! The
Rodriguez win, 524-150. Other answer: rabbit/bunny.
Dinero Rápido: Jorge is
stowed away, while Mercedes picks up a big 192. That's a
record for over 1000 broadcasts of this show and its
predecessor, "100 Mexicanos Dijeron." All Jorge needs...
is eight. Jorge gets... something right for $5000.
Schannell, Alexandra, Fernando, Grisel); $1500, two
Magdalena, Margarita, Monica, Jorge); $5000
The Guzmans are pulling
it together, but it's not working against the Rodriguez,
as they trail 62 to their 145 after three. Double:
something with which you eat beans (3). Jorge... with
the swag on (he's got a QDLG hat)... gets beat by
Monica, who gives #2, a spoon. Mercedes gets #1,
tortillas. And rice does it for the win, 325-62.
Mercedes and Jorge play
for Dinero Rápido. Mercedes draws extra points... not
that she'll need them. Well, she gets 126, so maybe she
will. Okay, she definitely will, becase Jorge craps out
four times to get the family up to 145. The 30 extra
points don't help, as they return tomorrow with $5500.
the Schwab by Chico Alexander, GSNN

(student at U. of Missouri from Skokie, IL); $2000
(account manager from Irving, TX); $2000
It's semi-final time!
Last time, Chris Calogero came within one of stumping
the big man. But still, he's in the championship show on
Friday. Remember what's at stake here, $1000 and a spot
on Finalists' Row for the win today, and five G's if you
accomplish the titular task.
Leading Off: 20 Super
Bowl MVPs since 1985. Chris is knocked out after 3.
Brian is knocked out after 3. Chad is knocked out after
5. Schwab has 6. Next, 25 Baseball Hall of Famers since
1991. Schwab gets 12. Chris has 6. Brian has 10. Chad
with 11. Finally, 22 NBA ballers with 800+ assists in a
season. After that bloodletting, Brian and Chad are
moving on with 11 and 13 respectively. Chris is going
back to Jersey with 8
Schwab, by the way, has
Coaching Ladder: after
round 1, Brian leads it, 5-3. Final score,15-6 in favor
But can he stump the
Schwab for $5000? The Schwab Showdown: The categories are...
Milwaukee's Best (Brewers), Preemies (early entrants
into the NBA Draft), Grand Slam Thank You Ma'am
(tennis's Grand Slam), and This is Howie Do It (great
sports figures named Howie).
Schwab gets his first
strike on Grand Slam Thank You Ma'am for 3. Brian gets
his first in This is Howie Do It for 3. Final score:
tied at 9. Tiebreaker time!
The question: Beginning
with the 1958-59 season, the Celtics won eight straight
NBA titles. How many regular-season games did they win
during those eight years?
Schwab says 369. Brian
says 430. Correct... 461. Brian has stumped the
Schwab... again! And this time, he's got another $5000
for $8000 total! No exhibition indeed.

Host: Meredith Vieira
Yesterday, Shani Malloy
(Bellport, NY) started on her way up the ladder, getting
to $300 without a problem.
Shani planned to cram the night before this taping in
preparation for this, but her sister ended up buying a
bunch of clothes, and she spent the time deciding what
to wear here. Her sister is in the audience, by the way.
Anyway, the game resumes, and she secures the $1,000.
Then, she soon gets to this...
A villain from "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's
Chest" shares his name with what member of The Monkees?
A: Davy Jones
B: Mike Nesmith
C: Peter Tork
D: Micky Dolenz
Shani hasn't seen the movie yet, so she asks the
audience. An astounding 96% goes with A. She trusts
them... and of course, they're right! A couple more
questions later, and she faces this...
The Spanish name "Paco" is the equivalent of what name
Thinking that it might be D, Shani uses the 50:50. Guess
what? D is gone, as B and C remain. So, she decides to
call her dad, Stuart, who is sure that it's C. With
that, she goes with C... and thanks to her dad, she has
$25,000! On to the upper tier...
In the 1927 novel "The Bridge of San Luis Rey," where is
the bridge of San Luis Rey?
Shani isn't sure, so she switches it out. After seeing
that it was B, this pops up...
In 1999, NATO forces entered Kosovo to protect civilians
from the army of what Balkan region?
Again, she's not sure, but it's a free guess. So, Shani
says C... and she's right! Next question...
What car model was named after a type of warship in the
British Royal Navy?
Shani has no clue, so she walks. After seeing that it
was A, she gets her check for $50,000!
Next up is Gary DeAngelo (Holliston, MA). It turns out
that the day of this taping happens to be the birthday
of one of his kids. Brady, who turned 8 on this day,
wasn't exactly happy about him not being home for the
day. Well, maybe a million bucks could make up for it...
With that, Gary starts by knowing that a student who is
favoured by a teacher is often known as a "teacher's
pet" (and might get called other names as well,
including "stinkbreath"). He sweeps the lower tier, then
makes it to $4,000.
And there's the horn. Gary will return tomorrow for
