Spike: 10:30p/9:30C
Host: Craig Robinson
Official WebsiteFacebook
  It's the game show that literally can carry a tune. Craig Robinson is cruising the streets of Las Vegas looking for people who think they called a rideshare. But this car will pay you, and all you have to do is sing.

Our first two groups are JJ & Hilary (exes) and Colleen/Katie/Laura (family). Each group is going to play karaoke games with Craig until they reach their destination. Whichever group has the most money at the end of their trip will play the Caraoke Showdown for an additional $5000!

SUITE MUSIC ($500): these are songs about hotels. You're going to see lyrics until they stop. You have to fill in the blanks note for note, lyric for lyric correctly.
- "Rio", Duran Duran. Family gets it to lead, $500-$0.

DJ MEGAMIX ($1000): with the help from legendary Las Vegas DJ Steve Aoki, you're going to hear four songs mixed together. Each song is worth $250.
- "Treat You Better", Shawn Mendes
- "Fireball", Pitbull
- "Waterfalls", TLC
- "Closer", Ne-Yo. Family still leads, $1250 to $1000.

STRANGER DANGER ($2000): while one person sings, another will go out and look for a stranger to join them before time runs out. If they stay and sing the rest of the song, it's worth $2000.
- "All The Small Things", Blink-182. Both teams succeed. Colleen, Katie & Laura win, $3250 to $3000. They will be at the Caraoke Showdown at the end of the show.

Meanwhile, we get new passengers: Bryan & Bryan (Chippendales) and Cheri & Mike (married couples).

REAR ENDED ($500): these are songs about butts. Each song is worth $250.
- "Back That Azz Up", Juvenile
- "Thong Song", Sisqo. Chippendales lead, $500 to $250.

DEAF JAM ($2000): one person will be singing a song while miming, gesturing, and doing whatever they can to get the other person to guess the title AND sing along while wearing noise-canceling headphones.
- "Shut Up And Dance", Walk the Moon. Chippendales win, $2500 to $2250.

FINAL CARAOKE SHOWDOWN: At the Brooklyn Bowl, bowlers will be judge and jury for the final two teams. Top winners Laura, Colleen & Katie face runners-up Bryan & Bryan. The top winners get the honor of choosing the song, "Pony" by Ginuwine or "All I Do Is Win" by DJ Khaled. They pick "All I Do Is Win", so the guys get "Pony". The guys being Chippendales... well, you can imagine what happens next.

Winners of the $5000... by audio vote... BRYAN & BRYAN! They're taking away $7500!

While you were watching the Nintendo Switch launch announcement (March 3, y'all, be dialing), we were looking at the past with the Throwback AND Casual Thursday edition of the @midnight @11:30 program, extended and uncensored if you're watching from the app. Tonight's #HashtagWars: in honor of Pitbull's birthday, #DogCelebs. Michelle leads with 900 to the others' 800 a piece.

Next up, in honor of Jamie's book, Wedding Hells (tying the knot). Jamie and Brian are tied at 1700 going into the second intermission... to Michelle's 1800.

Back That (^_^) Up! rounds us out this week. No backup bands for Michelle, but for the second night in a row, no one gets eliminated!

FTW: the top hat... the thimble... and the boot. For one of these Monopoly tokens, the days are numbered. Update a Chance card for 2017. The winner: "You've become a rich enough a**hole. Now you're the President!" MICHELLE goes from last place to Winner of the Internet!

The weekend's funny makes for the game on Monday. Continue the game online @midnight.

  Zoey made the best of a bad situation to return to defend today against...
Zoey Orol

New York City
Sarah Labadie
nonprofit manager
Cheryl Guy
Columbia, SC
high school principal

JEOPARDY! ROUND: What Color Is The Dress?, Keyboard Cat, Yas Queen, Dad Bod, Squad Goals, "Me"mes

Zoey starts with $200 "Me"mes, finding the Daily Double under $1000 What Color Is The Dress?. She bets half the level on this: a lovely shade of green worn by a girl of this "M" group of Kenya & Tanzania. "What is the Maori?" No, it was the Maasai, leaving her with $1300. She ends up with $1700, but with Cheryl ($2400) and Sarah ($2200) ahead of her, the first pick of the board is ahead of her in Double Jeopardy!...

... or does she? After a score correction, she has $3700, and now Sarah has first crack.

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: US Places, Parts of the Organ, You're the Man!, Speak of the Dickens, Beastly Words & Phrases, Pop Culture "Vice".

... with $400 Pop Culture "Vice", with Zoey finding the first Daily Double under $1600 Speak of the Dickens. She wagers $2000 on this: Dickens used Thomas Carlyle's "The French Revolution" for much of the background of this novel. "What is 'A Tale of Two Cities'?" RIGHT for $7300! Cheryl finds the other under $2000 Parts of the Organ. She wagers $1000 on this: the vitreous body. "What is an eyeball?" That works, here's $11,800. She ends up with $10,600 to $10,900 for Zoey. Sarah has $10,200. A three-way $10,000 game of chicken.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Religious Terms": unlike newer Bibles, the King James Version usually translates pneuma hagion as this, which can lead to unnerving images. Correct response: what is "Holy Ghost"?

Cheryl is right to win $20,600. Zoey, who said "lung disease", leaves with $6400.

CHALLENGE 1: HUG IT OUT: Wearing a hug suit, carry four pieces of meat, each with a thing kids do to annoy each other, and drop it into a container. Once you have all your meat collected, shout "pau" and wait for the shaka.

CHALLENGE 2: BRIDGE OUT CHECK-IN: At the lagoon, the bridge is out and you need to check in. Zip to your team paddleboard and use it to move all eight pieces of luggage from the lagoon to the shore. Then put everything - including your dad - n the hotel cart and use the working bridge to get it to the wedding chapel.

CHALLENGE 3: HONU HATCHERY: At the Grand Staircase, zip to the lagoon and start passing one egg from the turtle nest to your teammate in a shell. Once you have two in your hatchery, switch places until you have eight. Pop open all the eggs, then yell "pau" and wait for the shaka.

RIDDLE TO THE FINISH LINE: THIS dangerous great white causes swimmers serious fright. It's the Shark Suite, and the first team there... the NALU!
