film journalist & test prep teacher
As before, the only advantage that Eddie will get is a card with every category in Braille.
JEOPARDY! ROUND: The New York Times Best Sellers, PEople from India, Track & Field, White, Wheat, Wry
Leslie drew first position and gets to start with $200 Wry. Bob finds the Daily Double under $400 New York Times Best Sellers. He wagers it all on this: this sequel by Alexandria Ripley, published 55 years after the original novel, entered the list at No. 1 in 1991. "What is 'Scarlett'?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2000! He ends up with $8400 to $4400 for Leslie. Eddie, on $2400, gets the board to start...
DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: European History, Movies By Character, Poetic License, Scientific Discovery, Music Appreciation; You've Got a "Tude", Mister
... with $400 You've Got a Serious "Tude", Mister. Bob finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Poetic License. He goes for $1800 on this: one week after a secret wedding at St. Marylebone Church, she ran off to Italy, escaping Wimpole Street forever. "Who is Elizabeth Barrett Browning?" RIGHT for $16,600! Eddie finds the other under $1600 Music Appreciation. He goes for it on this: the name of this small harpsichord may come from the Latin for "rid" or the Latin for "maiden". "What is a clavichord?" Nope, it was a virginal, dropping him to zero. He recovers to $800 to $10,000 for Leslie, but with $21,000, it's Bob's game to lose.
FINAL JEOPARDY! in "US Cities": founded in 1758, it's named for a British prime minister who was a noted defender of the American colonists. Correct response: what is Pittsburgh?
Leslie is right... but so is Bob to win with $21,000. He'll return next week... but who'll join him? Stay tuned...

(Cannonball is an extreme water competition that is designed, tested, and supervised by folks who have expertise in this sort of thing. The challenges depicted should never be duplicated anywhere by anyone at any time. GSNN cares)
A brand new set of sliders are ready to put their floaties where their mouths are.
HIGH WATER MARK: Our brave group of athletes will slide down the seven-story Mega Slide for height on a suspended cylinder. The eight who make it the highest will advance.
- Na'eem Walton (fitness director): 10'6"
- Dana Kippel (alien specialist): 2'11"
- Connor Gowland (Groton, MA): 10'5"
- Andrea Logan (bodybuilder): 7'6"
- Krisalys Paulino (Bronx, NY; IT specialist): NO CONTACT!
- Chad Reinhart (cat dad): 10'7"
- BEST OF THE REST™: Katherine Barbosa, Dakota Moxon, Tony Ruiz
SAVAGE SWING: Cling onto a torpedo 5 stories in the air and time your drop onto a yellow spot in the lagoon. The six closest will advance.
- Dakota (rapping gym teacher): 12'5"
- Katherine (aviation specialist & Army vetera ): 8'7"
- Chad: 11'9"
- Andrea: 10'6"
- Na'eem: 13'
- Connor: 6'9"
- Tony (commercial builder): 16'2"
- Dana: 13'11"
ELIMINATED: Tony, Dana
SURFRIDER: Leap onto a surfboard 4 stories into the air and hang on. For every 0.1 second your hands touch the board, it's a foot penalty. The top five advance.
- Chad: 18'1"
- Dakota: 53'10"
- Na'eem: 14'10"
- Andrea: 70'9"
- Connor: 87'11"
- Katherine: 11'7"
SEMIFINALS: BLAST OFF: The five athletes will have to stand on a small cannonball that shoots water up to 70mph. The water pressure increases the longer you ride. The four that hang on for the longest time move on to the final round.
- Dakota: 17.3s
- Connor: 18.6s
- Na'eem: 21.5s
- Andrea: 13s
- Chad: 25.2s
FINALS: THE CANNON: Back at the Mega Slide, which added a 20-foot cannon that will launch in total darkness AND became 20% steeper. This time, you'll be measured in both length and height. The most total distance will win the $10,000.
- Connor: 57'10"
- Na'eem: 58'5"
- Chad: 63'9"
- Dakota: 62'2"
That was CLOSE, but Chad the cat daddy make the course his daddy for $10,000!

Host: Adam Scott with Ryan Reynolds
(C-Note: a lot of what goes on on this stage may look fun, but it's been designed, tested, and supervised by experts, far too many to imitate at home, so... DON'T)
Tonight, the "Don't Master" sets one up with the Jean family - sisters Jeannie (an account executive), Tamara (a nursing student), and Neside (the baby), and their honorary fourth sister Melissa (an opera singer).
DON'T GET CLOCKED: Neside and Melissa are under a clock. JEannie and Tamara have to answer questions whose answers are 1 to 12. Grab the correct number without getting clocked by the clock's hammers for $1500. The game ends when 5 minutes elapse or when both players are clocked.
- They end up with five right answers for $7500.
DON'T BUDGE: Tamara will be behind a sheet of glass wearing a pincushion helmet. Different objects will be shot at you at high speed. If you don't budge, you'll win money. If you pop a balloon, no money. Pop all three... Game over. The Don't Push Button is in play
- Tamara makes a stand for
$17,000, giving them $24,500.
DON'T MISS A BEAT: Jeannie will perform several dances while on a spinning turntable. Every dance, she'll switch turntables. Each correct guess is worth $2000. Ten in three minutes... $20,000.
- DON'T YOU DARE: For another $5000, we'll crank up the speed by 50 percent. They'll do it!
- Jeannie conveys 6 for $12,000. With the Don't You Dare, it's another $17,000, giving the family $41,500.
DON'T USE FOWL LANGUAGE: Identify the celebrities pictured. If they share their name with a kind of bird, they have to push the bird-egg button before they can answer. IF they answer and correctly identify them as a bird, they win $2500. If they answer and correctly identify them as NOT a bird, they win $1000. If they fail to do either of those things, it's a goose-egg.
- The Jeans get $11,000, bringing them to $52,500.
DON'T BE SHOCKED: All four players will answer true/false questions worth $2000 each. Get one wrong, and you'll be shocked with electric shocks you're wearing... and you'll also be eliminated. Game ends when Adam runs out of questions or the Jeans run out of players.
- They get two for $4000, leaving with a total of $56,500.
| Holey Moley II: The Sequel
by Chico Alexander
Host: Rob Riggle & Joe Tessitore with Jeannie Mai and Stephen Curry
David Koonvirarak licked the course for the Golden Putter, the Plaid Jacket, and the shot at $250,000 at the end of the season. Today, another eight take the course.
HOLE #1 is POLCANO - Putt up the side of the volcano through a rock-laden Plinko board. Land in the center to get the best position. Otherwise, it'll end up in the rough or the hazard depending on where it lands. In any case, you'll have to zipline your way around the pole in the lagoon to the green to finish the hole. Land in the water, it's a stroke penalty.
- Mallory "Six Pack" Sestak (Santa Barbara, CA; kickboxer) vs. Kris Mill (Chandler, AZ; food truck owner). WINNER: Mallory
HOLE #2 is BEAVER CREEK - Putt across the fallen tree, then cross over the rotating tree trunk. Land in the water, and it's a stroke penalty.
- James Aguilar (Inglewood, CA; USPS mechanic) vs. Gabi Lucas (Las Vegas; golf club seller). WINNER: James
HOLE #3 is DIVING RANGE - Three putters will dive off of a giant tee with three judges - Greg Louganis, Steve Guttenberg, and Sir Goph - scoring. The two highest scored dives will putt out the hole. Highest score dive gets better ball placement.
- Aaron Kaminski (Ocean City, NJ; mini-golf president) vs. Andi Neilson (Hempstead, NY; golf shop manager) vs. Joey Cifelli (Chicago Heights, IL; SWEATY). WINNER: Aaron.
HOLE #4 is BUNS & WIENERS - Putt across the rotating bun and ricochet the ball from the knife to the green, then run from the grill across the wieners to the green to putt it out. Falling off the wieners is a one-stroke penalty.
- Lauren Klein-Warren (New Haven, CT; statistician) vs. Uzo Utti (Bronx, NY; personal trainer). WINNER: Uzo
HOLE #5 is DOUBLE DUTCH COURAGE - Two giant windmills with more blades than season 1. You have to get your ball... and yourself... through. If either land in the water, it's a stroke penalty.
- Mallory vs. James. WINNER: Mallory
HOLE #6 is DRAGON'S BREATH - Putt into one of the three holes under the archway to lower the drawbridge and get access to the final hole. All while wearing a suit of armor AND putting downwind of actual fire.
- Aaron vs. Uzo. WINNER: Aaron
HOLE #7 is... HOLE NUMBER TWO - Putt through a 30-foot stretch to the green, then get to the green by running the same stretch while avoiding opening port-a-johns. Drop into the drink, it's a one-stroke penalty.
- Aaron: 3 with two penalties.
- Mallory: TWO!
Mallory Sestak just scored the knockout on this round, winning the Putter and the Jacket and the right to put for $250,000 in the finale.
