Jen D'Angelo
"Adam Devine's House Party"
Aisha Tyler
"The Talk", "Archer", & "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"

While you were hunting down a pair of trolls in the DC area, we were rounding out the week with the Thursday nightcap. Tonight's #HashtagWars: to celebrate (?) Drake's new album, #GentlerSongs. Aisha leads, 800 to Jen's 700 and Chris' 600.

Fan of @midnight? Want to win a Jaguar XE? Make a funny video about how you get around with the hashtag #HowIGetAroundContest, Jason.

Next, Amazon Book Fair: Big Questions Asked and tonight's Live Challenge, Captain Hooker. The Netflix description of "Pokemon XY" sounds a lot like a war epic starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.... and Tinker Bell sounds even worse: "Her pimp cheated on her while she was locked up. Now this working girl sets out to claim her pound of flesh." So what else happens in this gritty remake? Aisha gets 1000 for describing Tink's "particular set of skills".

The Midnight Spoil: Game of Thrones rounds us out for the week. George RR Martin kills Chris.

FTW: Emoji4Porn... because your other hand is busy. Give another emoji with a corresponding porn category. Winner: Flag of Canada: Really polite humping. And JEN has fallen the giant!

This weekend's funny becomes Monday's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.

2. Slurp 14              6. Watch TV 4
3. Phone call/text 13    7. Elbows on table 4
4. Chew w/mouth open11   8. Eat bare-chested 3

SINGLE: If grandpa got a divorce, where might he go to look for a new wife?
1. Senior home/ctr. 45   5. Bingo parlor 7
2. Web/Hotgeezer.com12   6. Store/Mall 6
3. Church 10
4. Bar 9

DOUBLE: something big that most women would like to have.
1. House 29              5. Beyonce's butt 8
2. Double G hooters 23   6. Car/SUV 5
3. Bank account 14
4. Ring/Diamonds 12

TRIPLE: something a cowboy might be embarrassed to admit he can't do.
1. Saddle/Ride horse 57
2. Lasso/Rope 29
3. Use a gun 3
4. Line dance 3

The Waltons made sweeps on the second and third surveys. However, the Lewis took control on the last survey but couldn't get #4. So for a car, the Waltons needed to get that answer on the steal. They thought the cowboy would admit he wouldn't ride a bull, but they get no car where instead, they get $500 prepaid gift cards, for online purchases and no overdraft fees, along with their $41,575.

Siblings Elizabeth and Alan will now play Fast Money. Elizabeth didn't have the best answers, but still got 60. Her brother Alan went for Snowmaggedon or a word or phrase that has snow in it. He could only get a #1 answer at the end, but they will return with a total of $680.

Fast Money #1 answers
- How many drinks can you have before you know you're going to have a hangover?: 3
- Give me a word of phrase that contains the word snow: Snowflake (Elizabeth)
- A sport where the athletes don't look athletic: Golf (They just swing)
- Something you might buy where one size fits all: Socks
- A symbol you see on a slot machine: Cherry (Alan)

In the nightcap, returning champions the Taylor family are starting to get their groove, and they now play against the Ramsden family.

TRIPLE: a female celebrity whose bottom seems to have as bigger career as she does.
1. Kim Kardashian 41
2. Jennifer Lopez 39
3. Beyonce 12
4. Nicki Minaj 3

The Taylors win another game after taking control and knowing their female celeb with a sexy bottom, meaning the $500 prepaid gift cards for online purchases and no overdraft charges have to be given to the Ramsdens.

Nathan & Rob Jr. will attempt Fast Money again. Nathan had a low scoring answers before he recovered on the last answer to get 80. Rob Jr. thought you'd find chocolate in cafeteria, he could only get the first answer as a #1, but at least he did better and they now have a three-day total of $21,635.

Heather still in the hunt with $9400.

The march to $6,000,000 starts off with Deanna the Jailbird. She is Wayne's personal assistant. She gets $2,500 to help Wayne make deals. The first deal in Rudolf the Red Nosed Pizza. He can take the Big Box or $600 from Deanna. He takes the money and passes on a Vespa Sprint Scooter worth $3,699. Next up is Celeste(as Crazy Eyes from Orange is the New Black).

Cindy the Badminton Player is playing for a home office with 27" All in One Computer with desk/chair and GC worth $3,498 AND a Haier kitchen with dishwasher/refrigerator/150 can Beverage Center/pasta maker/$1,000 in groceries worth $5,317 AND a Scion iA worth $17,595! Cindy is playing RACE TO THE FINISH. She needs 5 hearts for the car, 4 spades for the appliances and 3 diamonds for the office. She wants to avoid 3 clubs because that will zonk her out. If Cindy wins a prize and goes for another, she must commit to the prize or the zonk crossing the finish line for a decision to be made, good or bad. Her first pick is a 10 of hearts. Next is the 10 of diamonds, the 9 of hearts, the first zonk with 6 of clubs, the 2nd zonk with the 4 of clubs. She passes on $200 to pick the third zonk which was the Jack of Clubs.

Before the next deal we have a pretty cool moment with a former contestant named Teresita who today is dressed as a hippie. She gets a "Globe of Attendance" award for seeing the show 83 TIMES! Kristy the Tiger(who works with Tigers) picks 8 from 0-9. Wayne has a sealed $100 Bill in the LMAD Envelope. Every bill in circulation has an 8 digit serial number. For every 8 on the $100 Bill, Kristy will win $1,000. Will Kristy keep the bill or go for Curtain 3? She goes for the curtain and passes on the bill which had the number of 75614703. She would have won nothing, but Curtain 3 has an outdoor day bed worth $4,740!

We need a guy with a driver's license and it's Jovan the Jelly Bean Bag. He gets $1,000 for it. We need two women to guess his age. They are Tanika the Soul Sister and Patricia the Bobby Soxer. Winner gets $1,000 and loser gets $100. Patricia says 46 and Tanika says 45 and they were right on it. Patricia wins because Jovan is 47! Tanika sits down with $100! Patricia can keep the $1,000 or take the Big Box? She passes on the Big Box which was a luxury makeover worth $5,300! Jovan can keep his $1,000 or take Curtain 1. He takes the Curtain and wins a GIANT CAR-CADE(ZONK)!

Joshua the Roman and Alena the Cat are DUELING WITH DICE IN DICE DUEL. We have numbers 2-12 with cash hidden behind them. As long as they roll good numbers, Joshua and Alena can continue to earn cash. If they roll a number that's been rolled already, that's a mistake. We give them a free pass for one error each. Two mistakes and they are out. Alena goes first winning the roll off 5-4. She rolls 11 and $1,700 is hers. Joshua rolls 8 and $700 is his. Alena rolls 9 which is $800. She has $2,500. Joshua rolls 7 adding $500. He has $1,200. Alena rolls 3 adding $1,200. She has $3,700. Joshua rolls an 11, hands in his Free Pass, passes on $300 and rolls 2. That adds $2,000! He has $3,200.

Alena spends her $5,800 for the small box and wins a TRIP TO BUENOS AIRES at the Hilton Buenos Aires for 5N worth $9,044!

Last deal involves Cindy/Diana(the chicks - married since 2013). They have $1,000. Diana will draw something and after 15 seconds Cindy gets 1 guess. If they get it, the money will double. They miss BEAR. Will they keep the $1,000 or take the small box? They take the box and win FUR PLATES(ZONK!)

Alena was very lucky in Dice Duel, but she feels her luck will continue as she trades in her Argentina trip for a shot at $23,697! She picks 2. 3 was a surfing trip from Zed's Surfing Adventures to BARBADOS worth $6,862! Alena wins a sporting goods package with hoverboard, road bike, zips shoes and more worth $1,930! 1 was the Big Deal and it starts with a Mitsubishi Mirage DE AND EVERYTHING IN THE BIG DEAL including the trip and the sporting goods worth $23,697!

  Today and tomorrow, two more from "The Bachelor" will be playing for charity. What will happen here is that one will play the first game, with the other being the Plus One, then they'll switch spots for the second game. As usual when charity is involved, the minimum winnings for each is $10,000.

Andi Dorfman (Manhattan, NY)
Charity: Dress for Success
(+1): Nikki Ferrell

She sweeps the first 5, then eventually asks the audience at $30,000. After that is this...

Known for its many plots revolving around food, "Seinfeld" features episodes with all but which of the following titles?
A: The Junior Mint
B: The Turkey in a Can
C: The Big Salad
D: The Muffin Tops

Andi has no idea, so she starts with the 50:50, leaving B and D. She then calls on Nikki, whose gut says B. Andi's gut says D, though. In the end, Andi decides to walk, giving $30,000 to Dress for Success! As for the answer, it's B.

Tomorrow, it's Nikki's turn.
