So yesterday happened.

... enough of that. Dream Car Week rolls on with Carole Schwartz, Ryan Goodwin, Vanessa Ansoorian, and Carol Svendsen bidding on an HTC smartphone with a year of service. The $1940 package goes to Ryan, who gets to text his friends about a 7-day Alaskan cruise! It's either $7387 or $5514. He goes with $7387... Nope.

Vanessa gets two computers - an all-in-one and a laptop - coming up to $1892. Let's hope her calculating skills are up to snuff, because it's Dream Car Time! Today's Dream Car, a TESLA MODEL S ELECTRIC CAR! The game is One Away. The price is not $68,411. She tries with $77,520. And we get... one... two... three... That's it. She changes it to $79,320. The 7's right... the 9's right. The 3.... RIGHT! ANOTHER DREAM CAR WIN!

Christopher wins an $800 table tennis and a shot at a new dining room with dinnerware, china, and cake for a year in Cliffhangers. A facial sauna for $30? Nope. It's $25 for five steps. Digital thermometer for $25? No, it's $37 for 12 more, giving him eight steps. Teakettle for $35? Nope, it's $49... and down he goes.

Ryan gets another shot at it in the Showcase. Meanwhile, Carole (with an E) gets a $2827 trip to my hometown of Monterey, CA (4n @ Monterey Marriott), but can she get a treadmill, Jimmy Choo shoes & accessories, and a washer/dryer? The game is asking for the Most Expensive. Is it the accessory package? The treadmill... $1399. The washer/dryer... $3398. The accessories... $2100.

Sarah Garodz picks up a $1249 sat-nav radio/GPS and a shot at something into which it goes... a Dodge Avenger! Time to roll the Dice. First number: 2. She rolls 5 (lower), 6 (auto-lower), 1 (auto-higher), and 5 (exacta). So the ONLY WAY SHE CAN LOSE THIS CAR is if the second number is 6. The price... $22,325!

Sterling Chappell is as good as gold with a $1330 set of power tools. Time to power his way to $16,000 in It's in the Bag. He thinks an 8-pack of Energizer AAs are $11.99... and fails to even get off the schneid.

Sarah meets Ryan in the Showcase. First up, get outside with a set of outdoor wardrobe for him & her, a pair of Vespas, and a trip to Tahiti (6n @ Radisson Plaza Resort Tahiti). Top winner Sarah passes, and Ryan bids $14,000. Sarah gets trips to Austria (6n @ Salzburg) & Las Vegas (5n), and a Jeep Compass Sport. She bids $34,500. Actual price... of Ryan's Showcase is $21,644, a difference of $7644. Actual price of Sarah's Showcase... $34,...... 394. Over by $106, and Ryan gets the caaaash with $23,584. But that's chump change compared to Vanessa's Tesla. Just saying.

While you were busy watching a video from a few years ago about blindfolded teens being forced to make out with their parents... awkward... we were Rapidly Refreshing on a Tag Team Thursday. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #RuinTechnology, because Apple dropped the iPad Air 2 today. Scott leads with 700 to Brett's 600 and Jon's 500.

Next up, The Blunder Years (most embarrassing school pics - even Chris's) and today's Live Challenge, Sexy & Sustainable. sells the first vegan bondage gear. Write a line from a hipster orgy evite where you would find a yarness in use.  Brett clearly earns the 1000 on this: "Help our Bird Nigel knit a bondage pouch to wrap around your (male bits) or place underneath your (lady bits). So that he may partake in your sweet natural gifts of urination. It's the only thing that keeps him from repeating "Estoy Muerto, Estoy Muerto"."

For the speed-up round, we have Lame Mobsters, in honor of Al Capone's conviction on tax evasion. Jon "The Loser" Daly is about to get whacked. With his mom in the audience.

FTW: Tagacat... It's like Tinder for cats. Write a line from your Tagacat profile. The winning line... "Looking for bi-lingual parrots who enjoy water sports and aren't afraid of cats. P-MEOW me if interested." Gee, I wonder who wrote that. IT'S BRETT GELMAN! @Mementh is a winner at home too!

Remember, today's funny becomes Monday's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.

George & Jackie
married couple that met online 10 years ago
Casey & Sloane
friends who met in school
Sara Rue

Round 1: George & Jackie start us off with "Special "K"" (famous names that start with the latter 'K'), getting five for $500. Casey & Sloane get "Oprah's Favorites" (celebrities who have made the most appearances on Oprah), getting five for $500 as well.

Round 2: Casey gives on "Please, Buy Our Products!" (mascots associated with brands), getting two for $400, $900 total. George gives on "Renaissance Men and Women" (celebrities who are also painters), getting six for $1200, $1700 total. Sylvester Stallone? Wow...

In the race to $3000, we have "Nice Pair!" (famous duos). Casey & Sloane gets the first three... but George & Jackie would get the last three to win, $3200 to $1500

... which is theirs to keep, but now let's see if they can turn that into $20,000 in the final round. George gets eight of the final 10, leaving Jackie to get the other two in 30 seconds. Vagina Monologues is good.... Samuel L. Jackson... not so much.

In the nightcap (featuring Chris Kattan & Karina Smirnoff), newlyweds Gwen & Ron beat cousins Ingrid & Jenny $3700 to $2700. In the bonus round, Ron closes it with 4 seconds remaining to win the $20,000!

Megan & Dustin will now go for chance at Fast Money. Megan only got four answers in the time limit, not thinking about scuba divers, the other answers got her 111, including a good recovery on the last answer.

TRIPLE: something you hope never crashes into your home.

  Chapter 2 of John's Jeopardy! odyssey begins with these two...
John Campbell
Weymouth, MA
romance novelist
Chris Hoeh
Riverdale, GA
Jim Hamilton
Wilmington, DE
risk manager

John starts with $200 Alexander Hamilton, Grumpy Guy. At the TV timeout, John has the lead with $3800 to Jim's $1600 & Chris' $1400.

John finds the Daily Double under $400 Inventive Thinking. He goes for $2000 on this: more than Bell's sidekick, he came up with a ringer that let a telephone caller alert the recipient. "Who is Watson?" Thomas Watson is right for $6200. He goes up to $8200, or double what Chris has. Jim on $2000 will get the board first to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Mr. "T". John finds the first Daily Double under $1600 European Rivers. He fronts $3000 on this: Iberus was the ancient name for the longest river entirely within this country. "What is Spain?" GOOD for $14,200! John's going for the triple double with $1200 Social Science Books on this for $1000... "What do school teachers & sumo wrestlers have in common?" is one question asked in this "crazy" 2005 book. "What is 'Freakonomics'?" That... would've been right, had John said it. He drops to $15,600. He does go up to $17,200. With Chris at $4200 and Jim on $6000, the game is the champ's to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Literature": this title 1864 adventure is embarked upon by a descent into Iceland's Mount Sneffels. Correct response: what is "Journey to the Center of the Earth"?

Chris is right. So was John to win another $19,000, giving him a two-day take of $35,400!

  Dorian Johnson (Oakland, CA) begins the show today by beginning Round 2 with a total of $43,600. No lifelines left, though.

At some point in its 47-year history, Trader Joe's has carried all but which of the following unusual items?
A: Shrimp corn dogs
B: Crunchy cookie butter
C: Meatloaf muffins
D: Jalapeno brownies

D is jumping out at Dorian. He goes with that... and it is D!

In 1955, Rosa Parks famously refused to give up her seat on a bus that had just stopped outside what Montgomery landmark?
A: Alabama State Capitol
B: Empire Theater
C: Union Station
D: Brown Chapel

Dorian says he feels bad for not knowing this. At first, he says he doesn't have a strong gut feeling about this one. But after some thought, he decides to go for it. He says C... but it's B! With that, he leaves with $25,000!

Shon Stump (Raleigh, NC)
(+1): His "bromance," David

The 2nd question, which had $7,000, is jumped. He has a total of $25,000 going into this...

Joe DiMaggio's divorce from Marilyn Monroe is said to have been prompted by his jealousy over Marilyn doing what?
A: Appearing nude in Playboy
B: Singing "Happy Birthday" to JFK
C: Posing over the famous subway grate
D: Kissing Tony Curtis in "Some Like It Hot"

Shon needs some help from the audience; 49% say B. He was hoping for more than 50%; with that, he turns to David. He's also thinking B, but he's not sure. In the end, Shon walks with $12,500! As for the answer, it's actually C (14%)!

Josh Tenney (Orem, UT)
(+1): His brother-in-law

He brings in his Plus One on the 4th question, but despite narrowing down the choices, they don't agree on the answer, so he jumps it and the $500 it had (for the record, the Plus One was right). That is where the show ends for today; Josh returns tomorrow with $13,100 banked!
