These three celebrities are playing for Charity - Teri Hatcher from Desperate Housewives and Lois and Clark - who is playing for The People Concern, Drew Carey (Host of the Price is Right) is playing for The Greater Cleveland Food Bank and Chrissy Metz from This is Us is playing for Blessings in a Backpack!

The $1,000 Tossup is SHOW BIZ. Drew has $1,000 with MAKING THE BLOOPER REEL.

The $2,000 Tossup is PHRASE. Teri misses and Drew has $3,000 with FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT. Drew starts MOVIE TITLE and misses. Teri misses. Chrissy loses $600 on Bankrupt. Drew solves ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD for $3,350. We add the $5,000 bonus to make that $8,350. It's been all Drew so far with $11,350 for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. We move on to...

Round 2 with 4 MDWs added to the wheel. Remember the solution to this puzzle because later on tonight, you can take this solution and the other 2nd round puzzle solution to where you can win $10,000. Teri starts 70's SONG LYRICS. After a lot of work, she misses. Chrissy loses $1,650 on Bankrupt. Drew hits Lose a Turn. Teri solves I'M TENSE AND NERVOUS AND I CAN'T RELAX (from the Talking Heads "Psycho Killer") for $7,650 and we add $10,000 so she has $17,650 for The People Concern!

The Triple Tossup category is worth $5,000 per answer. The category is PERSON. Chrissy has $5,000 with MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER. Drew has $5,000 with PODCAST HOST. Teri starts the next round with her $5,000 solve of MR. KNOW-IT-ALL. She has the lead with $22,650 for her charity. Drew has $16,350. Chrissy just won her $5,000. Teri starts WHAT ARE YOU DOING? and hits the MDW with 2 S's. She misses a vowel - U. Chrissy misses. Drew solves DELETING MY SEARCH HISTORY for no cash but he adds $20,000 to his charity total and goes to the bonus round with $36,350 in cash! Teri has $22,650 and Chrissy has $5,000!

The Pre-Bonus Round total is $64,000! Drew picks SHOW BIZ over PHRASE and WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

Drew lands on the R wedge in AMERICA'S. With the RSTLNE and his choices of P D M A we have:

P R _ D _ _ T _ _ N
_ _ M P A N _

Drew(and probably everyone else in Hollywood) has a PRODUCTION COMPANY. Unfortunately Drew was focused on the word PREDICTION and lost $75,000 in bonus cash!

In round 2 - The $1,000 Tossup is RHYME TIME. Drew has $1,000 with THE MOTION OF THE OCEAN.

The $2,000 Tossup is QUOTATION. Drew has $3,000 with RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. Drew starts SONG LYRICS and misses. Teri hits Lose a Turn. Chrissy does the same. Drew loses $2,650 on Bankrupt. Teri solves SHAKE IT SHAKE IT LIKE A POLAROID PICTURE(from "Hey Ya" by Outkast) for $5,600 and we add $5,000 more for a total of $10,600 in cash for her charity!  We move on to...

... Round 2 for a bonus $10,000. Remember to take this puzzle & the one from the previous game to where you can win $10,000. Teri also starts BEFORE & AFTER. She misses a vowel - A. Chrissy picks up the MDW with 2 B's but loses that and $1,000 on Bankrupt. Drew solves KRISTEN BELL-BOTTOMS for $1,200 but we add $10,000 so he has $11,200 that round and $14,200 in total for his charity.

The Triple Tossup category is worth $5,000 per answer. The category is PHRASE. Drew has $5,000 with WHERE DID I PARK MY CAR? Teri has $5,000 with WHERE DID I PUT MY KEYS and starts the next round with her $5,000 solve of WHERE AM I? Teri has $20,600 for her charity. Drew has $19,200 for his charity and Chrissy needs more money for hers! Teri starts WHAT ARE YOU WEARING? She misses. Chrissy misses on the MDW. Drew hits Lose a Turn. Teri leads us into a $1,500 a letter FINAL SPIN. Terry solves BRAND NEW FANNY PACK for $5,000 and we add $20,000 more for $25,000 that round and a total of $45,600 for her charity. Chrissy didn't win anything other than her $5,000 but Blessings in a Backpack will get the minimum $30,000 donation! Drew adds $19,200 to his total and is leaving with $55,550 for the Cleveland Food Bank!

The Pre-Bonus Round total is $49,200! Teri picks FOOD & DRINK over EVENT and PHRASE.

If the Chaser can't catch, the players leave with an equal share of the bank.
- CATCH with 40 seconds to spare.

Sorry, Adam and Beth, you've been caught, and for the two of you, the Chase... is over.

Hell's Kitchen Las Vegas

Fox: 8p/7C
Host: Gordon Ramsay with Christina Wilson & Jason Santos

bird, new, square, twitter iconInstagramFOXNOW AppHulu

Last week, the chefs arrived in Las Vegas to begin competing for $250,000 and the head chef position at Hell's Kitchen Lake Tahoe. After the Blue Team (all men) won by a point and enjoyed their reward, they were greeted the next day by a helicopter with a very special delivery.

... a crate of shrimp. As it turns out, Las Vegas is the shrimp capital of the world, serving over 60,000 pounds daily. You're going to add to that in...

CHALLENGE #2: Shrimp Service. Create a stunning shrimp dish. The winning dish will receive a Punishment Pass - this year's twist is that the holder can cchoose one member from the winning team to take their place. "If I was in your shoes right now, trust me, I would be desperate to get my hands on this pass." ... But that's not all. Ramsay will not be tasting any of the dishes, except the two worst dishes on either side, because he's ready to cut someone. Making that decision - his sous-chefs Christina & Jay. The WORST dish will be out before the first Dinner Service.
- BOTTOM FOUR: Eliott & Kenneth for BLUE, Nikki & Jordan for RED.
Nikki: Jasmine Sushi Rice & Char-Grilled Tiger Shrimp
Eliott: Sauteed White Shrimp with Spring Vegetable Succotash
Jordan: Sauteed Tiger Shrimp with Garlic Beurre Blanc
Kenneth: Penne with Sauteed Peppers, Bacon, Garlic & Mushrooms

Meanwhile the top six are competing for the coveted Punishment Pass...
- Amber: Citrus Butter Poached Tiger shrimp with Celery Root Puree
- Cody: Spot Prawn in Tartare & Escabeche of Blue Prawn
- Lauren: Chimichurri-Grilled Prawn with Chorizo
- Declan: Pan-Seared Blue Prawn with Coconut/Pineapple Salsa
- Syann: Shrimp & Grits with Polenta
- Josh: Sauteed Tiger Prawns with Asparagus Fennel Salad, Toasted Almonds, Orange & Fennel

In addition to her Punishment Pass, Syann's dish will be the special as we go into...

DINNER SERVICE #1: OPENING NIGHT. It's the biggest, most complex menu ever featured on the show, and the star of it is the shrimp from earlier. VIPs include Antonio "Huggy Bear" Fargas, NYPD Blue's Eric Kilpatrick, and TWO Chef's Table diners - for the Blues, we have TV's Big Dealer Wayne Brady and his family, and for the Reds, we have from Real Housewives & Vanderpump Rules Lisa Vanderpump and her family.

Reds start wtih raw lobster, which sends Nikki to apologize to Lisa herself in tears. This is after the team plated perfect risotto. The Blues are pushing apps at breakneck speed, while Nikki continues to spiral. Ramsay gives her a proper dressing down before sending her back into the kitchen. Seems to have worked. But when the men hit entrees, that's when the brakes fall. Peter overcooks duck while Mary Lou in the Red Kitchen misfires steak. Eliott gets the business while Wayne wants to start #PoorEliott. But Drew's raw lamb send him... Eliott... AND Peter back to the dorms.

Blue Team recovers on the Chef's Table... but that's where it all comes to a halt thanks to some "soft as 💩 fries". Gordon sends the Blue Team out of the kitchen and cooks Wayne's table with Jay. BOTH teams had some disappointing moments, but at least the RED TEAM came together to finish on a high. The Blue Team will have to come together to nominate.

ELIMINATION #1: The Blue Team nominated Drew and Eliott, who admits that Drew is a better chef. Ramsay doesn't like his lack of focus or his lack of confidence.
- ELIMINATED: Eliott. "Eliminating a chef this early is usually quite hard. But tonight, I didn't have to eliminate a chef, I had to eliminate Eliott."

The Hustler
by Chris Wolvie
bird, new, square, twitter icon @ChrisWolvie

ABC: 10p/9c
Host: Craig Ferguson
Official WebsiteFacebookFacebook
bird, new, square, twitter iconInstagramHuluHulu
Susan "Sue" McGuire
billing administrator
Ulysses Laman
former salesman going back to college
Stephanie Goldfarb
ad operations team manager
Ben Carpenter
high school principal
Andrew Yu
asset management

One of these is "The Hustler" and knows all the answers to each of the ten questions to be asked - the first nine worth $10,000 apiece - as the questions are based on their life and interests.  "The Hustler" will help the other four figure out the questions, given one minute each question for discussion...and then, during the course of the game, eliminate the two biggest threats.

If, at the end of the night, "The Hustler" is not found out, they will take whatever money was accumulated all for themselves.  BUT, if the final two figure out who "The Hustler" is, they split the pot evenly.

HUSTLER CLUE #1: Recruited by the CIA to do covert ops in China.
QUESTION #1: The mortar used to build China's Great Wall was made with what ingredient?
-Sticky rice

Andrew thinks it COULD be blood though the others doubt it since blood dries out.  Ben thinks it rice and Sue agrees as both phlegm (aka spit) and honey have sugar which breaks down in water.  Ulysses still thinks it could be honey.  When Craig asks for an answer, they go with honey...but they SHOULD have gone with Ben as the answer was "sticky rice"! [$0]

HUSTLER CLUE #2: Spends one month a year in amusement parks. [Prolly not LAST year, though...]
QUESTION #2: With nearly 21 million visitors annually, what's the world's most popular theme park?
-Ocean Park, Hong Kong
-Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, Florida
-Legoland, Denmark
-Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar

Yeah, "Jurassic Park" is too frightening in the dark to be the answer; it's nixed right away.  Most of the team jump on the Disney bandwagon and the rest agree.  They lock in "Magic Kingdom"...and they are RIGHT! [$10,000]

[In fact, Disney owns eight of the top ten parks; Universal Studios Japan is #5, Ocean KINGDOM in China is #8, Ocean PARK is #20...and Legoland isn't even in the top 25.]

HUSTLER CLUE #3: Has a custom made billiards room.
QUESTION #3: Which of the following is NOT the name of a shot in the game of pool?
-Forced follow shot
-Slip shot
-Blue ball
Stephanie's clueless, but Andrew thinks "forced follow" is a true shot.  Ben knows "slip shot" is one.  Sue thinks "blue ball" sounds like a medical condition and, after they have a laugh, they agree that "blue ball" is not a shot...and they're RIGHT! [$20,000]

[In standard pool, the #2 ball IS blue...but otherwise it's what happens when you...uh...mishandle your cue stick, so to speak...moving on...]

ELIMINATION #1: Time for "The Hustler" to toss someone out.  Everyone has a ballot to fill out as to who they want gone...but only the ballot of "The Hustler" counts.  The players mark their ballots and hand them to Craig, who then sends them via pneumatic tube to the "Powers That Be".  The Powers read the right ballot and place the name of the eliminated player on the "Magic Bookcase"...and it is STEPHANIE!  She thinks Ben is "The Hustler" as she's escorted through the bookcases.

HUSTLER CLUE #4: Worked as a day trader on Wall Street.
QUESTION #4: In the film "Trading Places", the plot hinges on what commodity?
-Sesame seeds
-Orange juice
-Tomato sauce

Ulysses comes out and says "Trading Places" is one of his favorite movies and he's pretty sure that it's orange juice.  Ben says that it is and Sue and Andrew follow along.  And orange juice...or, rather CONCENTRATED orange RIGHT! [$30,000]

HUSTLER CLUE #5: Once went to buy shoes...but bought a Porsche instead.
[CW-Post: Custom billiards room, day trader, Porsche...exactly WHY is "The Hustler" here?!  'Cause I don't think it's for the money!]
QUESTION #5: Which animal is featured on the Porsche logo?
-Fire-breathing dragon
Sue immediately dismisses "bull" as...well, "bull".  Ulysses FIRST thinks it's "horse"...but Ben says that that's FERRARI, not Porsche.  They're not sure it's dragon, but Ulysses brings them back around to "horse" but they're stuck until Craig comes over.  They decide to stab at "bull"...until Ben emphatically calls for "lion".  So they say "lion"...but it WAS "horse"! [$30,000]

HUSTLER CLUE #6: Plays online backgammon every day.
QUESTION #6: What is widely considered the best opening roll in backgammon?
-5 & 2
-3 & 1
-6 & 4
-Kaiser roll

All right, writers, enough with the lame fake answers; this ain't "Millionaire"!  Anyway, Andrew THINKS it's one of the higher rolls but isn't sure.  Ben played backgammon in college...a long time ago.  He makes a guess and says "6 & 4".  The rest agree...but it's 3 & 1! [$30,000]

[That way, you move one checker from the set of five further from the goal four spaces onto the set of three, preventing any lone checker from being "barred".]

ELIMINATION #2: Again, the ballots are shown and filled out and sent to the Powers That Be.  And the person "The Hustler" sends home this time is...ANDREW!  Now HE'S starting to think it's Ben as well...not that HIS opinion matters anymore.

HUSTLER CLUE #7: Has wooden souvenirs from 37 countries.
QUESTION #7: What does the word "souvenir" mean in French?

Sue suddenly speaks up; she says she took high-school French and KNOWS that "souvenir" is the verb for "to remember" and, thus, the answer must be "memory".  Ben doesn't know French so he goes along with it.  Ulysses agrees and they stick with "memory"...and they are RIGHT! [$40,000]

HUSTLER CLUE #8: Can balance a beer can on their head.
[Craig gets an empty beer can and gives it to each contestant...who, of course, all fail miserably.]
QUESTION #8: Which of these ingredients causes headaches in some people after drinking beer?
Hmmm..."stupidity" SOUNDS reasonable...nah.  Ulysses knows ethanol is alcohol, but Sue thinks it's more of a gas than something drinkable.  Ben thinks hops...but Sue starts to think of ethanol.  She convinces the others to pick ethanol...and they're RIGHT! [$50,000]

HUSTLER CLUE #9: Took two love interests on back-to-back vacations to decide between them.
QUESTION #9: In what 80s movie does Molly Ringwald's character have to make a romantic decision between "Duckie" and "Blane"?
-"Sixteen Candles"
-"Pretty in Pink"
-"The Breakfast Club"
-"Sophie's Choice"

I...don't think Ringwald had to choose who to send to the gas chamber at Auschwitz.  Anywho, Ben is all, "Who's Molly Ringwald?"  Sue thinks the 80s was her "generation" so she's 90% sure it's "Pretty in Pink".  Ulysses doesn't remember a "Blane" in "Breakfast Club" he and Ben go with "Pretty in Pink"...and are right AGAIN! [$50,000]

[Fun fact: Ringwald actually wanted Robert "Iron Man" Downey, Jr. as "Duckie" but was OK with Cryer.  Thank you, "Ready Player Two".]

The final question is NOT for $10,000.  If they get this answer right, the pot will be DOUBLED to $120,000!  HOWEVER, if they get it WRONG, the pot will be HALVED to $30,000.

HUSTLER CLUE #10: Speaks French, Greek, Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian AND Arabic.
QUESTION #10: Which language has the most native speakers in the world?

Sue thinks that, since China's land mass is so huge, there are more people in it and, thus, more speak Chinese.  Ben says that English is spoken around the world, but Sue agrues about NATIVE speakers.  Ulysses says he KNEW it was China...he was just stalling to work out who "The Hustler" is.  They agree it's China and they...


...RIGHT!!! [$120,000]

After Craig goes through some of the clues a second time, he tells each of the contestants to pick a tile side with the name of who THEY think "The Hustler" is.
SUE: Ben
BEN: Sue

Now they're given 90 seconds [dunno why it went down from 2 minutes] to discuss to see if they can persuade the others to either keep or change their vote.  Ben thinks Ulysses just fits the profile of the clues given...but he claims "only a woman would go out with two different men to see which one she liked".  Sue thinks that is ALL sorts of sexist there and thinks Ben's going through a midlife crisis, hence the Porsche purchase.  Ulysses stays quiet as Sue and Ben shout it out between them, asking questions about both their work once things calm down a bit.  But it all comes down to the...

SUE: Ben
BEN: Sue

So Ben changed Ulysses' mind.  But, was that what "The Hustler" wanted?





So Sue gets squat (though, given her lifestyle as a sales director for a large consulting firm, I don't think she really NEEDS it), Ben and Ulysses each take home $60,000, and we learn that a woman can work for the CIA and speak seven languages while still choosing between two men.

  It's all about Lucy and getting to that third game against...

Lucy Ricketts
orig. Atlanta


Brett Moore
North Hollywood, CA
freelance sportswriter

Liz Fitting
orig. New York City

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Automobile, Historically Bad, Wee-Pourri, Communcation, 2-Letter Lit, The Best of Times.

Lucy starts with $200 2-Letter Lit. Brett finds the first Daily Double under $600 Historically Bad. He bets $1000 on this: this began in Latin America in 1928, a little before it hit the United States. "What is the Great Depression?" RIGHT for $2400! He ends up with $4800 to $2400 for Lucy. Liz on $1800 will get to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Unicorns, Bodies of Water, Don't Skip Leg Day!, Rick's Role, Let's Go to the Archives, Y Is The Only Vowel.

... with $400 Y Is The Only Vowel. Brett finds the first Daily Double under $1200 Bodies of Water. He bets $2000 on this: blooms of the algae trichodesmium erythraeum give this body of water its color & perhaps its name. "What is the Red Sea?" RIGHT for $7600! Lucy finds the other under $1200 Let's Go to the Archives. She fronts $2000 on this: the Vatican Apostolic (formerly "Secret") Archives hold a 200' scroll recording the 14th century trial of these knights. "Who are the Knights Templar?" GOOD for $5600! She ends up with $17,600. With Liz on $6600 to $6000 for Brett, the game is once again Lucy's to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Children's Books": this 1969 book was first printed in Japan because no U.S. company would then make a book with so many holes in the pages. Correct response: what is "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"?

Lucy didn't have to wager much... she didn't and wins $15,000, giving her a three-day take of $79,499.

Thursday's trading at the marketplace starts off with DRAW STRAWS and three people! Tiana the Alien is first(dancer/fire performer/hula hoop artist). She gets the red straw that starts with $2. She can keep the straw or Tiana can take Curtain 1. Tiana takes Curtain 1 and passes on $220. Tiana did better with Curtain 1 and wins a new bedroom! It's a bedroom worth $4,140! We go to an At-homie Adam(in tech and works improv). He takes the green $3 straw over Curtain 3 and passes on a home theater room with Moovia Theater seating, HDTV, wireless sound system and Haier 150 Can Beverage Center. It's worth $8,308! Adam wins $330.  Sheri the 60s Go Go Girl takes the small box over the $4 Blue Straw. She passes on $440 in cash! Sheri wins a pair of Loris Jewelry Diamond Hoop Earrings and a trip to Aruba! It's a stay for 5N at the Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusive Resort! It's worth $12,594!

Scott the Pickle(HS Theater Teacher) is playing 0 to 80 for a 2021 Honda Civic LX Sedan worth $21,775. Here's how the game works. Scott will glove up and pick up to 4 tokens to try and get his car up to 80mph. The tokens in the grab bag range from 0mph to 40mph. If Scott can get his car up to 80mph in 4 token picks or less...he will win the Honda. His first pick is a good one - THE ONLY 40MPH token in the bag. He is halfway to a car in one pick! Next is 10mph. He is 30mph away and passes on $1,000 to play on. Scott picks 10mph. Last pick must be a 20mph token or higher. Scott is offered $2,000 not to play. Scott goes for the car...and we get a covid Huddle from Chris Ahearn, Tiffany, Wayne and Jonathan. Wayne offers $3,000 and tells him the odds. With the tokens left - he has a 50/50 shot of winning the car. That is because there are 2 0mph tokens left along with 2 10mph tokens for a total of 4. On the other hand, Scott can win with one of four other tokens - 3 20mph tokens and one 30mph token. He goes for the car and blasts through the 80mph zone with the only 30mph token! Scott is no longer in a car pickle as he now owns the Honda!

Justina the Butterfly(recent college graduate/getting married/teen influencer) and Kevin the Glam Rocker. They each get $1,000. Who buys Curtain 1 for $500? Kevin does and wins a new laundry room with a washer/dryer and hampers and 3 years worth of cleaning supplies worth $3,429! Who buys Curtain 2 for $500? Kevin does and is adding a trip to Miami for 5N at the Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel Miami Beach worth $5,354! Justina has $1,000 in cash and Kevin has $8,783 in prizes! Who keeps and who trades for Curtain 3? Justina trades and Kevin keeps his package! Justina wins a GIANT BEACH CHAIR(ZONK)! She gets $100 as an early wedding gift from Wayne!

Alexis the Astronaut can have the Big Box or Tiffany's wine cork collection at a price of $1/cork(it's in a GIANT wine glass)...$2/cork...$3/cork...Alexis goes for the box and passes on 215 corks X $3 = $645! Alexis wins the Big Box which has a Kymco Like 200 Scooter worth $2,549! Korey the Alien has Curtain 1. It's time to play CUSTOMER SERVICE HOTLINE. We have three hotlines - DRIVERS ED TEACHER, ELECTRONICS EXPERT and JONATHAN'S FRIEND. Korey will call 2 of those hotlines to try and hear clues about the Curtain 1 prize. First is JONATHAN'S FRIEND. Something that might be a clue - Jonathan's friend "Del Frisco" is "moving a lot of these and if you wore a wire, I might get in trouble." Next is ELECTRONICS EXPERT. There is a clue - "Humans enjoy this while sitting around and forgetting the day." Will Korey take Curtain 1 or the small box? He takes Curtain 1 and the small box was a trip to Adult Summer Camp! It was a 3N stay at Camp No Counselors worth $4,820! Korey wins a TON OF TVS(ZONK).

Dellamaria the Cash Cow(mom - married for 26 years - owns a hair salon) is playing the LMAD Lotto for a Chevy Spark worth $15,495! Here's how the game works. We have 8 spaces on the board. Dellamaria will pick 3 of them. If she can match the car, the Spark is hers. If she matches Wayne, she has $5,000. If she matches Tiffany, it's worth $3,000. Jonathan will give her $32.01. Dellamaria's picks are 5, 3 and 2. 2 is the CAR. 3 is Jonathan. Will Dellamaria go for the car or take a sure thing behind Curtain 2 with Oru Kayak Kayak, bicycle and Disrupt Sports Surfboard. It's worth $3,052. She stops and passes on...TIFFANY! 6 had the 2nd CAR.

Last deal of the day involves at homies Jamison/Casey(from Dallas Texas). We have three boxes - red, green and BIG. Each will contain a prize or a zonk. We show them the red box for free and it is 2 Iphones with 2 pair of Airpods worth $2,396! If they go for the green box and get zonked, they lose the phones. If there is a prize, they get 2 prizes. They open the green box and add $1,500 in cash! They have $3,896! Will they go for the sweep with the Big Box? They stop and pass on A GIANT HAIRDRYER(ZONK!)

Who trades for a shot at $25,779? Kevin trades his laundry room and trip to Miami!

He picks 3. 2 was an Everpure Outdoor Grill and patio set worth $1,986! Kevin wins a Big Bear Getaway worth $4,250! 1 was the Big Deal and it was a 2021 Toyota Prius L Eco worth $25,779!

Next week, we are giving away trips from Collette in the "Show You The World" Giveaway! The $2,000 Tossup is CLASSIC TV. Erica has $2,000 with FRASIER & CHEERS.
