  Returning champions Moffett family just missed out on winning big, but they hope to give it another shot, but they must play against the Bishop family.
Ashley, Justin, Matt, Jennifer, Kenneth

Kennesaw, GA
DJ, Shelita, Lorraine, Latrecia, Cheryl

SINGLE: something that twins should never share.
1. Spouse/Lover 42      5. First name 2
2. Toothbrush 31        6. Silverware 2
3. Undies/Clothes 14
4. Toilet paper 2

SINGLE: a part of Steve Harvey's body that's probably very smooth.
1. Shiny bald head 49   5. Perky pecs 3
2. Face/Juicy lips 15   6. Guns/Arms 3
3. Butt cheeks 11
4. Back 4

DOUBLE: something you never want to be sprayed with.
1. Mace/Pepper spray34  5. Pee/Diarrhea blast 6
2. Eau de skunk 22      6. Pesticide 6
3. Acid 8
4. Paint 6

TRIPLE: besides a family member, someone you'd ask to borrow money from.
1. Friend 67
2. Banker 17
3. Boy/Girlfriend 5
4. Neighbor 4

The Moffetts would win another game, after another sweep on the last survey to naming someone, besides a family member, you'd ask to borrow money from which were friend, banker, boy/girlfriend and neighbor.

Shelita teams up with Cheryl for Fast Money this time around. Shelita only got four answers in the time limit, as needs to watch sports more, but the other answers got her 110. Cheryl needs to watch sports more as well, as there's no false starts in baseball, and trimming toenails twice a week is one too many. But the last answer on women putting on clothes was a successful recovery, as the winning #1 answer gave the family a two-day total of $20,835.

Fast Money #1 answers
- Tell me something you'd be most nervous borrowing from a friend: Money (Shelita)
- How often do you trim your toenails?: Once a week
- Fill in the blank: "Go for _____." what?: It (Shelita)
- A sport where there's often a false start: Football
- Something that women put on: Clothes (Cheryl)

In the nightcap, after the Siureks failed to get points on the first surveys, they hoped that the Manigaults would not get the #4 answer on the last survey on a steal, and it wasn't bacon, so the game goes to sudden death.

Sudden death question: Name something people grow themselves in order to save money.
Siureks got in first and won the game and the car with Food/Vegetables (89).

Brandon & Steve play Fast Money once more time. Brandon got exactly halfway with 100. Steve had a rough round, thinking the office is a room that's big in a mansion, and Chutes & Ladders as the oldest board game after thinking twice. The rest was not enough, but they leave with a new car, along with a total of $22,810.

While you were playing with your Oculus Rift in Uganda and getting very disoriented... We were kicking off this Tag Team Thursday (presented by Outback Steakhouse - winning Tag Teamer gets $100 from Outback) with a Rapid Refresh. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #DongFoods... Foods created in a condom. Nikki leads with 900 to the guys' 700 a piece.

Next up, Kick Start this Kickstarter and our Live Challenge: The Lion, the Witch & the Good (^_^). A stuffed DARE lion was used to smuggle drugs. If it were a talking lion, what would it say? Nikki gets 1000 to add to her already insurmountable lead on this: "I guess I never really recovered after watching my dad get thrown into a stampede by my Uncle Scar... but you know, Hakuna Matata."

For the speed-up round, we're gonna Make It Complicated. It's a given that Nikki was going to move on, but Michael did not even come close to competing. Say goodnight, Gracie.

FTW: the Daily Mail has turned the Walking Dead into a burger that "tastes like human flesh". Write an urbanspoon review of these people burgers. The winner: "5 guys make the best burgers. Ooh! That should be a restaurant!" Wordplay five to JULIAN MCCULLOUGH! He wins the Internet, and @tedcalhoon wins $100 worth of steak and bloomin' onions.

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

Mira & Monica
aunt & niece health nuts
Ryan & Evan
boss & coworker
Courteney Cox Arquette
"Cougar Town"
David Arquette
"Field of Lost Shoes"

Round 1: Mira & Monica start with SPOILER ALERT! (actors or characters with memorable death scenes), getting $400 for four. Ryan & Evan get JUST PLAYING AROUND (famous toys), playing with five for $500.

Round 2: As we swap stars, Ryan gives in "I Got 'Felt' Up" (famous people who have appeared in Muppets movies), getting one for $200 more, $700 total. Mira gives in "It Does a Body Good" (famous folks with 'Got Milk?' mustaches), getting four for $800 more, $1200 total.

In the race to $3000, we have "Royal Subjects" (famous princes/princesses). The next answer for $800 will get the win. Sleeping Beauty... goes to Mira & Monica, $3400 to $2100!

... which is theirs to keep, but now let's see if they can turn that into $20,000 in the final round. Mira gets eight of the final 10, leaving Monica to get the final two in 30 seconds. Hard Rock Cafe and Shirley Temple.... make it look easy for $20,000!

In the nightcap (featuring Sherri Shepherd & Jenna Ushkowitz), Lyndsi & Mo beat out Steph & Nick, $3600 to $2200. But can they convert in the final round? ... Nope. They miss on John Grisham.

  Can Catherine convert the hat trick tonight?
Catherine Hardee
Kinston, NC
hotel front desk clerk & recent college graduate
Dolly Moehrle
Ventura, CA
law librarian
Joann Taylor
Portland, OR
color scientist

Catherine starts with $200 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, finding the Daily Double under $800 Eat Your Veggies. She fronts it all on this: unlike the familiar small red globe variety of this root vegetable, the daikon type is carrot-shaped & can be 18" long. "What is a radish?" That would've been right, but a beet gives her a beat, going to zero. She recovers to $5200 to Joann's $6000. Dolly has $2600, so she will choose first in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Title Movie Pairs. Catherine finds the first Daily Double under $2000 Americana. She fronts $4000 on this: since 1938 this southern city has been deemed "The City that Care Forgot". "What is New Orleans?" RIGHT for $19,200! Dolly gets the other under $2000 Hold Your Horses!. She bets $3000 on this: this small breed usually has 23 vertebrae instead of most horses' 24; the Najd region has a major stud farm. "What is a Shetland?" No, it's an Arabian, leaving her with $1600. And she would lose all of it before the Final. So it's Joann's $15,600 against Catherine's $23,200 in...

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "20th Century Leaders": in May 1980 over 200 leaders from more than 120 countries attended his funeral in Belgrade. Correct response: who was Tito?

Catherine is right to add $30,801 to her stash, giving her $58,801 for three!

*totals are based on the MSRP of the prizes and rounded to the nearest dollar.
Thursday at the Premiere Week Price starts with Rosalyn McClure, Beau Casey, Ashley Westmoreland, Robert Burton, and two wearable digital cameras. The $798 cameras go to Ashley, who can get all the SD cards she needs with $25,000 in Punch-a-Bunch. She gets four hits from a $39 salad spinner, a $75 handheld steamer, a $185 soda water maker, and a $60 health monitor. First hit is... $5000. That's good enough for her, and about as good as she can get.

Robert wins a $1400 3DTV and a shoat a grill, Gucci accessories, and $920 if he can Do The Math. He wants to ADD to the grill. The price... $3495. The accessories are... $2575. He needed to subtract.

Katherine Hagee scores a $1640 pair of watches. Does she know what time it is? It's time for a Chrysler 200 in That's Too Much! She thinks $23,120 is too much, and that's... not enough. It was $25,145; $25,740 was "too much".

Ashley spins her way to the Showcase. Meanwhile, Alecia Montgomery gets a $550 pair of surfboards and $500 to boot. She can spend the money and practice the surfing on her trip to the Bahamas (6n, Pelican Bay Hotel). The game for her: Bonkers. The price: not $4756. She doesn't have enough time to go high-high-low-low for the trip worth $5932.

Kyle Kovacs wins a $1932 karaoke (that's one pricey singing machine), but can he sing for a Nissan Frontier? It's Cover Up for him. He covers the 43 candles with $21,89... 4, 6, 7, 3, or 5? He goes with 7... WINNER!

Rosalyn and Beau have one last chance to get it together with a necklace & ring. The price: $1275. The winner... BEAU! Now he has a shot at an ATV, a MacBook pro, and a pair of heaters if he can guess which is the Most Expensive. He goes with the ATV. Macbook... $2306. Heaters... $1398. ATV... $3849!

But Kyle would take on Ashley in the Showcase. First, a good night's sleep in a new bedroom set with mattress & alarm clock, a trip to Ecuador (9d, Sacha Lodge in Quito), and a Hyundai Elantra. Top winner Kyle passes, and Ashley bids $29,599. Kyle gets to live large on a trip to South Carolina (5n, The Sanctuary Golf Resort in Kiowa Island) and a Mercedes-Benz CLA250C! He bids $32,000. Actual price... $40,321, a difference of $8321. Actual price of Ashley's Showcase... $34,795! She wins with a difference of $5196 for a game-winning total of $40,952!

Clock Game has been a serviceable part of TPIR history for 43 years, but that was then... tomorrow... IT WILL BE NOW.

Hello Seattle! ... Always wanted to say that. We are still calling out the Pacific Northwest this week on America's Game! We start as always with a $1000 Tossup, a Place. Scot Epling, an IT worker from Mt. Pleasant, SC, hits a CARIBOU CROSSING for $1000. Joining him... Georgette Belair (orig. Toledo, OH; design author & engineer) and Candice Herrero (a blogger and former Emmy-winning news reporter from Bull City, Durham, NC).

Second Tossup for $2000 is What Are You Doing? Georgette is READING THE DIRECTIONS for $2000.

Our featured prize tonight, a ride aboard an American Queen Steamboat Company vessel worth $9590. First up, Show Biz. Georgette spins out a $1000 eBags GT, the Wild Card, and 1/2 a car before missing an O. But Candice solves ACADEMY AWARD WINNER MERYL STREEP for $1400.

Healthy Choice Mystery Round is Same Letter. Remember the $1000 bonus for finding the Same Letter. Candice craps out on an I, while Scot Freeplays an A. Georgette finds the Same Letter, a B, and solves BEAVERS BADGERS & BOBCATS for another $4800, giving her $6800!

What's On the Map? Tonight's Prize Puzzle. Scot runs out with $3950 and a trip to THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS (Long Bay Resort in Tortola), giving him a total of $11,590.

Georgette gets the third Tossup, the Event GRAND-OPENING SALE, bringing her total to $9800. Next up, Food & Drink. She gets one N, but Candace ends up with $4000 from a FRESH BATCH OF COOKIES. So far, she's up $5400....

But we have time for one more puzzle (Speed-Up Chimes) ... or not. Final Spin is worth $1900. The category is Things. Georgette wins $3800 from SILVER & GOLD to take the gold with $13,600 AND a Wild Card! Scot is leaving for Tortola with $11,590. Candace ends up with $5400 cash money.

At the Bonus Wheel, Georgette spins out the C. Given the category of What Are You Doing?, the standard 6, DPM O, and the Wild Card choice of H...

We are not GOOFING AROUND, Georgette just banked another $32,000! With that, she ends up with a total of $35,600 cash money!

  First up, Jennifer Melvin (LaGrange Park, IL), whose grandma used to let her play hooky. She needs her ATA and her +1 on this...

Which of the following statements about animals is false?
A: The flying fish is a fish
B: The horned toad is a toad
C: The Siberian tiger is a tiger
D: The whale shark is a shark

The ATA gives her D, 72%... but the 15% who said B was correct. She gets $1000.

Kevin Brady (Runnemede, NJ) brought his best friend Patrick. Using up all of his lifelines late, he runs into...

In 1947, which famous fashion house introduced its bamboo-handled bag, still one of its most popular and iconic designs?
A: Gucci
B: Prada
C: Louis Vuitton
D: Hermes

The ATA is split between B-C-D, 29, 31, 29. Now's a good time to walk away. He does do with $30,050. Correct: A.

In the nightcap, newlywed-and-with-a-roommate Melissa Pigden (New York City) needed to use all of her lifelines to make $56,600.

What state song is sung to the tune of "O Christmas Tree", and includes the line "She is not dead, nor deaf and dumb/Huzzah! She spurns the Northern scum"?
A: Maryland, My Maryland
B: Beautiful Ohio
C: Our Delaware
D: The West Virginia Hills

Not really one to gamble, Melissa walks away with $29,300.

To close the show, Mary Cross (Troy, NY) gets to play for $1000...

An icon himself, whose silhouette is used for the "artists" icon in the iPhone music app?
A: Sting
B: Bruce Springsteen
C: Bono
D: Paul McCartney

It's C. But does Mary know that? Nope.
