  Two weeks ago, Yeti, Minotaur, Bronco, and Red Devil punched their tickets to the round of 16. Our next matches... 
 
#10 Complete Control
Roboteer: Derek Young
San Francisco
#23 Warhead
Roboteer: Ian Lewis & Simon Scott
Bournemouth, UK

Since qualifying, Warhead is trading their dragon-head in for a new spinning head. Meanwhile, Complete Control is refueling for more fire. Their strategy: stay away from the spinner. Complete Control has complete control, but Warhead's weapon and armor are mighty as demonstrated by that first devastating hit. And Complete Control is completely on fire!

WINNER BY DECISIVE KO: Warhead. Now Minotaur awaits.

#15 Razorback
Roboteer: Zack Bieber
Wellington, CO
#18 Ghost Raptor
Roboteer: Chuck Pitzer
Newark, CA

Ghost Raptor is the first wild card of the night, having lost to Son of Whyachi. Razorback is leaning toward the jaws after winning a controversial split decision. Razorback with a suplex busting Ghost Raptor!

WINNER BY DECISIVE KO: Razorback. They'll be up against Bronco.

#1 Tombstone
Roboteer: Ray Billings
Folsom, CA
#32 Escape Velocity
Roboteer: Ray Barsa
Manhattan Beach, CA

Escape Velocity is leaving their spinner out and putting all of their hopes on an aluminum honeycomb armor and a flipper. Tombstone is equipped with a shorter blade, the longer one perhaps getting it ready for the later rounds. Two hits... 45 seconds... DONE.

WINNER BY DECISIVE KO: Tombstone.

Final match in the Battlebox...

#6 Son of Whyachi
Roboteer: Terry Ewert/Team Whyachi
Abbotsford, WI
#27 Poison Arrow
Roboteer: Zachary Goff
Houston

Two fights, two knockouts for Son of Whyachi. And apparently they went easy on Ghost Raptor. This time, they're going all out against Poison Arrow, regrouping their tank and drone combo with a vertical spinner. In the battle, Poison Arrow takes out one of SOW's minis before going for big daddy.

WINNER BY DECISIVE KO: Poison Arrow with the upset!

The round of 32 concludes next time.

While you were busy making modifications to your Roomba, we were watching the RNC totally not cave in for once. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #ApocalypseResolutions. Dan leads with 800 to the others' 700 a pop.

Clickbait gets The Perfect Response in act 2. April owns that round going into tonight's Live Challenge, Trump'em Out. "The next President of the United States" was introduced tonight. Give us a more appropriate introduction. Ramon gets 1000.

Speeding it up with Nope-e-Mon Go. Ramon is in third, but because everyone's been so awesome, no one gets eliminated.

FTW: kids go to camp, you go to get drugs and sex. As a child-free hot horny parent, write an e-vite to a sex party. The winner... the guy who was supposed to be eliminated, RAMON!

Today's funny becomes tomorrow's source material. That's right. @midnight on a FRIDAY. Continue the game online @midnight.

TWO DAY CHAMPION
Pranjal Vachaspati

orig. Shaker Heights, OH
PhD student
$41,589
Dan Marsh
Corinth, MS
supply chain analyst
Kyle Murphy
Charlotte
IT support specialist

JEOPARDY! ROUND: The 1970s, TV Characters, The Letter of the Law; Planes, Trains & Automobiles; Poets & Poetry, New to the OED

Pranjal starts with $600 Planes, Trains & Automobile, where Dan finds the Daily Double under $800. He's going for it on this: the largest UK train station at 24.5 acres, it shares its name with an 1815 battle location. "What is Waterloo?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2800! He ends up with $5000 to $3400 for Pranjal. Kyle with zero gets the board to start... 

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: "S" First & Last, Historical Fiction, Miscellaneous, On Broadway, What Ails Ya, A Summer Cold

... with $400 "S" First & Last. Pranjal finds the first Daily Double under $1200 What Ails Ya. He maxes out on this: muscles slowly waste away, replaced by scar tissue & fat with this disease that Jerry Lewis vowed to destroy. "What is muscular dystrophy?" RIGHT for $3800! He also finds the one under $1600 "S" First & Last. He bets $4000 on this: Hester re-dresses. Arthur confesses--thatís a very brief one of these for "The Scarlet Letter". "What is a synopsis?" Right for $15,800! He ends up with $20,600, and with Dan on $7800 to Kyle's $4400, it's once again Pranjal's game to lose.

"Aww, hell." Pretty much, Kyle.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Religion": letters mailed to "God, Jerusalem" are placed in this alliterative landmark.. Correct response: what is the Wailing Wall?

Everyone gets it, and Pranjal wins $25,599 more, giving him $67,188.

Looks harder that it does at first...especially the last two. But Anthony doesn't sweat it; he places them...but the audience are LOUD in their objections. So he RE-sets them and gets it...

FACTS:

Hotel rooms in Las Vegas
Conventions held in Las Vegas in 2014

Yeowza! Getting harder and harder! Athony thinks about 1000 rooms per hotel...but thinks there are less that 200 hotels in Vegas so he keeps SONGS on top. A former Vegas resident convinces him to put CONVENTIONS below POUNDS instead of above...but another person UNconvinces him. So he locks it...

Lynn (who'd pay on a mortgage)

To play for the cash and car, he must put the speakers and the trips on the line. Will he walk away...or stay and play? After taling with his fiancee, he...

STAYS AND PLAYS! So here we go with the...

HARDEST FACT:

Miles between Earth and the Moon (on average)

If Anthony paid ANY attention in middle school science class, this should be easy...but he didn't...so he needs help. Two men say it's "1 A.U." or 150,000 miles...so Anthony sets it

TOTAL WIPEOUT!!An "A.U." is actually the distance from Earth to the SUN...which is about 93 million miles. So Anthony's helpers must've slept through science class, too.

Well,...half the audience keep the lobster...but everyone else goes home with nada but thoughts about what might've been. Oh, and Anthony gets to hear "I TOLD YOU SO!" from his girl forever.


Let's see if we do better in the nightcap...

FACTS:

Visitiors to Smithsonian National Zoo in 2015
Views the "Gorilla Breaks Glass" video has on YouTube

The video one was a "Watch The Fact" fact, where Daniel watched it before the fact was given. He put them back-to-back, VIEWS above VISITORS, below PRE-ORDERS. A panda lover says the zoo had pandas and, thus, VISITORS should be even higher. Another man says VIEWS needs to be higher, too. So Daniel re-arranges them thusly...
