  Will is out to prove that yesterday didn't happen in a bubble. But he'll have to overcome the challenge of... .
Will Anderson

orig. Atlanta
senior legislative aide
Maggie Schreiter
Ewing, NJ
artist & stay-at-home mom
Todd Coleman
River Falls, WI
physics professor

Will starts with $1000 The Big Picture. At the TV timeout, Maggie leads with $1400 to Todd's $1200. Will is in the red by $800.

Out of the break, Todd finds the Daily Double under $800 National Public Radio. He's going for it on this: Steve Inskeep & David Greene host this show in the AM in DC; Renee Montagne, not far from us here in Culver City. "What is Morning Edition?" That would be right, but Marketplace drops him to zero. Special Shoutout to friend-of-the-site Kathy Klaus who hosts it here in Fayetteville. He recovers $1400 to Maggie's $4000. Will has -$1000 and command of the board when we begin Double Jeopardy!...

... with $1200 In the Atmosphere. Todd finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Novels Written Fast. He fronts $1200 on this: as William Faulkner sat writing, it took him 6 weeks to come up with this 1930 classic. "What is 'As I Lay Dying'?" Correct for $4200! Maggie finds the other under $1200 Ancient Greece. She bets $1000 on this: in the 350s BC Demosthenes started warning Greeks about aggression by this Macedonian dad; no one listened. "Who is ... I have no idea." It was King Phillip II of Macedon, leaving her with $5800. She ends tied with Todd, $7400. Will can spoil with $1800.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Candy": an early TV ad for this candy bar featured a fleur-de-lis flag & a song with the lyrics "fun for all". Correct response: what is 3 Musketeers?

Will is the only one to get it right to almost double to $3599. Maggie and Todd were both wrong, and both went all-in to end with zero. Will returns tomorrow with $23,199.

While you were busy testing a new police radar that can see inside my house and inside squad cars of cops lip dubbing Taylor Swift, we were having fun with the cast of "Archer" on a Tag Team Thursday. Season 5 is now on DVD. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #SnotQuotes. Aisha leads with 700 to the others' 600 a pop.

Next up, Performanshart (performance artists) and our Live Challenge, Stand and Deliver. Gizmodo reports that an office in the Netherlands has banned sitting. Draft an office memo banning something else.  Our girl Aisha gets the grand from this: "Hey everyone, some of you haven't given my assistant Kathy your measurements. We can't have S&M Orgy Tuesdays if we don't have your butt plug size."

Next up, happy birthday! Here's Amazon Gifts: Guy Fieri. Judy gets the gift of the red light. Or so we think, as Chris makes an executive decision not to break up the "Archer" cast.

FTW: Imgur user posts this note in response to "Do you like me?": "I Don't know. I don't know myself yet. Plus I'm under a lot of stress at home so I can't tell. PS You don't know yourself until you're 18." Write an existential note to send someone else. The winner: "Do you want to go to the dance? By the dance, I mean the grim waltz that is life, forever twirling toward its tragic end. Also, my parents won't be home so you can give me a handjob." That's go to be Aisha, right? IT IS!

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

David & Chad
John & Frank

Nicole Sullivan
"Cougar Town"
Melanie Lynskey
"Over the Garden Wall"

Dude Thursday!

David & Chad step up to the plate with "Oscar Is a Grouch" (celebrity guests on "Sesame Street"), getting five for $500. John & Frank pick up "Shake It Up" (folks that have been made into bobbleheads), getting five of their own for $500 of their own.

Next we do what people in Hollywood do... swap. John gives on "Legends of the Hall" (hall of famers), getting seven (would have been eight, but part of "Play-Doh" was said) for $1400. David gives on "Smarty Pants" (folks with a graduate or professional degree), getting five of the 10 alloted for $1000. John & Frank are up, $1900 to $1500.

... when we go into round 3 and "Fame Is The Name Of The Game" (folks who have won a reality show competition). John & Frank run out this game to win, $3400 to $1500.

Hopefully they will have just as easy a time in the $20,000 Bonus. John was too much on his game, getting Mozart, Arnold Palmer, Jerry Springer, Caesars Palace, Katie Holmes, Stevie Wonder, Silver, George Clooney, and accidentally saying "Lisa Simpson" on the buzzer. Hey, when you're on, you're on. Frank gets Thanksgiving and Adam & Eve to win the $20,000!

Pawn Stars
Las Vegas
proprietors of the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop

Round 1, Chris has chosen an antique revolver worth $1600. Jarrett wins the round and the gun with $400 to the Pawn Stars' $200. Kelvin yet to make a move. Bonus question for $150 powered by Subway.

In season 1 of Pawn Stars, Rick tested a 19th-century cannon by firing at what target?
a) Stop sign
b) Potted plant
c) Mail box
d) Mannequin

Jarrett said B. Kelvin goes with D... Jarrett is right to move to $550 to Kelvin's zero.

In round 2, we've got a 1950 Whizzer motorbike worth $5000. Rick can only get up to $600, while Jarrett completely owned the round, winning the bike with $1350. Kelvin... you don't have to go home with your $200, but you can't stay here.

At stake in the Haggle of a Lifetime.... a  Bob Dylan-signed harmonica worth $8000. The Pawn Stars beat Jarrett 9 to 6, but can Jarrett make an easy buck off of the deal master? The final offer... the bike from earlier. Jarrett thinks he has the upper hand. NO DEAL. And no dice.

In the nightcap, Isaac (newlywed EMT from San Diego) takes on Chris (craps dealer from Las Vegas). A pair of Aerosmith shirts signed by the band ($1100) rolls over to round 2, which has a $6000 Kandi Viper. Isaac gets neither, but he does win, $700 to Chris' $300. In the Haggle of a Lifetime, we have an 1819 Hall breech-loading flintlock ($8000). Isaac gets only 1... the Pawn Stars miss only 1.The final offer... $1100... DEAL for the money.

*totals are based on the MSRP of the prizes and rounded to the nearest dollar.
Natalie Mann, Fernando de Alba, Wyneia Smith, and Todd Schweitzer get us going with a touchscreen laptop with printer. The $1400 PC goes to Todd, who hopes not to use it in a hot tub after Bonkers. The price is not $5645, and the set up is about as evil as it gets without it being totally evil. If you play it logically, you have a 1 in 4 shot at it, though. Todd... does not play it logically. The price was $8393. So the correct combination was high, low, high, low.

Wyneia wins a pair of bikes worth $798. But can a dollar turn into a 2015 HYUNDAI SONATA? Here's Money Game...

73  43  15
94  20  59
21  87  22

Middle of the pack is a 1. 21... Money. 22... FRONT! 87 and Easter Egg... both money. Last pick is 59, and she wins... $210. The price was $22,115. El Cheapo got another one.

Fernando picks up a $1515 shuffleboard table, but is there something in the air that'll help him win a home gym marked at $3495 and a French-door refrigerator/freezer marked at $2529? Depends on whether or not he wants to Switch?. He does... he shouldn't have. The good news is that he does win $1000 on the Big Wheel.

Natalie completes the first-four sweep with a $1677 cutlery block. She'll cut into her budget with gas, dinner, and movies for a year if she can Pick-a-Pair of products that pair the proper price. Energizer AAs.... $7.99. Bic razors... $5.99. She keeps the batteries and goes wtih the Diamond pecans... AND SHE GETS US OFF THE SCHNEID!

Another Natalie, Ms. Lecompte will take $1800 worth of luggage to Hawaii (6n @ Waikiki Parc Hotel) if she can avoid the Pushover.

2 0 7 5 1 8 9 4 3

She pushes to $7518... PERFECT!

William Brown the class clown rounds us out with an $849 grill and a shot at another grille... attached to a 2015 NISSAN VERSA! The game is Pocket Change, and the price is $15,247. The cost... $1.75. He has a quarter in hand... followed by a Kennedy half-dollar... sweet nothing... a dime... and another Kennedy half-dollar. He's 40 cents short.

Natalie L. meets Fernando in the Showcase. First up, fun with vines: using Vine on your Galaxy phone, cutting through vines in Brazil (6n @ Manaus), and sampling Spanish wines in Spain (6n @ Casa 1800 in Grenada). Top winner Natalie passes, and Fernando bids $21,500. Next, living the life of the bold and the beautiful... and in celebration of the 7000th episode of the soap that bears that name, here're castmastes Jacob Young (Rick) and part-timer Karla Mosley (Maya) with a $2000 Rodeo Drive shopping spree, a 3DTV, and a 2015 MINI COOPER! Natalie bids $24,000. Actual price: $27,545, a difference of $3545. Actual price of Fernando's Showcase... $23,890, a difference of $2390. And he is mah-velous, he really is, simply mah-velous with $26,405.

One more time, "Bold & the Beautiful" #7000, tomorrow afternoon, only CBS Daytime.

  Ted Hansen (Manalapan, NJ) has $21,500 through 7 questions to start things off for today; he still has his Plus One (his wife, Judy) available.

His Plus One enters the picture on the 9th, and with Judy's help, $100 is added to Ted's bank. He then finishes Round 1 with a total of $53,600! On to Round 2...

Now known for eating spinach, in the original comic, Popeye would often become rejuvenated after rubbing what for luck?
A: A pair of gold coins together
B: Olive Oyl's head
C: A Chinese vase
D: A magic hen

Ted seems to be thinking that A and C are both possible, but he's leaning towards D. Still, after plenty of thought, he decides to walk. After seeing that it's D, he leaves with $53,600!

Anne Forester (West Jordan, UT)
(+1): Her husband, Brent

She jumps the 2nd question, leaping over $5,000. She calls on her husband for the 3rd, and gets $500 with his help. She then asks the audience on the 4th, and with their help, $10,000 is added to her bank! That makes her total $11,500 to finish this episode; Anne will return tomorrow!
