  "The wheels have not come off the Sandie Express." An understatement from Alex. With last night's win, Sandie is in elite company among the greatest women to ever play the game. Now we see if she can surpass them with a win against...
Sandie Baker

Eastpointe, MI
translation coordinator
Frédérique Delaprée
foreign services operator
Kristin McAuliffe
Brighton, MA
higher education administrator

Sandie starts with $200 Rejected Supervillain Names, finding the Daily Double under $600 Sauces. Trailing by $1400, she bets $1200 on this: one story says the French came up with this sauce to imitate a buttery one brought with a visiting Dutch king. "What is Hollandaise?" RIGHT for $3400! She regains the lead with $8600 to a corrected $6800 for Kristin to end the round. Frédérique, sitting on top of $1200, gets freedom of the board to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Composers, where Sandie finds the first Daily Double under $1600. She fronts $2000 on this: in 1727 this German composer became a naturalized British subject under George I. "Who was Handel?" Right for $11,800! Frédérique finds the other under $2000 Wind. She bets $2200 on this: a common scale of wind velocities was devised in 1805 by Sir Francis Beaufort of this military group. "What is the British Army?" CLOSE! It was the British Navy, leaving her with $4600. It's going to be an interesting final with Sandie on $15,400 to Kristin's $13,200. Frédérique can spoil with $6200.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "19th Century Presidents": good looks weren't enough as he became the only full-term President rejected in a bid for his party's 2nd term nomination. Correct response: who was Franklin Pierce?

The challengers are NOT happy. Sandie... DEFINITELY not happy. She leaves with $142,200, albeit temporary - she'll be back. But the young Canadian spoiler in the middle is the new champion with $6200!

Killer Karaoke Season Finale

  Opening Number: "Last Name" by Carrie Underwood. Based on the popularity and technical score...
#1: John
#2: Achaia
#3: Sara
#4: Ricky
#5: Adam
#6: Josh

So John (assistant manager) can chill in the Winner's Circle, while the others take each other on in the Battle Rounds. And remember, whatever happens... DO NOT STOP SINGING!

MYSTERY BATTLE: Sara (ride-share driver from Florida) vs. Ricky (realtor from Cerritos, CA). Our clues are... bird seed and... poison? Sara decides on... bird seed. That gives her the Petting Zoo and "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor. Ricky gets poisoned by Bull in a China Shop (taking place in a lab). Appropriately, he'll be singing "I Ran" by A Flock of Seagulls.

RESULTS: Wasn't even close. Ricky upsets Sara (6.52 to 5.52).

THROWBACK THROWDOWN: Achaia (nanny) vs. Adam (cashier). The Throwback today... Cactus Maze. Achaia passes it, so Adam will head into the maze (with a LIVE cactus, if you know what I mean) singing "Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus. Achaia gets Flip Your Lid and "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

RESULTS: Achaia destroys Adam (8.12 to 4.54).

Back to John, who'll perform another Killer classic, Power Lunch. He's a singing waiter, singing "Good Lovin'" by The Young Rascals while taking on Walk the Line. She will do battle against either Sara or Adam. It's... Sara (57%)! We've got for her a twist supplied by John. It can be worms or scorpions. John picks the scorpions, and Sara will be facing those scorpions (again) in Road to Nowhere while singing "It's Time" by Imagine Dragons.

RESULTS: Sara upsets the champ (5.26 to 4.66).

Now another audience vote will determine who gets to play in the final round... It's Sara (43%) vs. Ricky (29%), beating Achaia by a point.

In the $10,000 FINAL ROUND, each singer is fitted with $10,000 in cash. They'll have to go through a series of obstacles designed to take as much money as possible from you. The singer with the higher score to their person gets to keep whatever money is still strapped to their person. They'll be performing an encore of "Last Name." And after the cones of death fall and the singers fall silent... Sara pulls the upset with a landslide victory over Ricky (6.97to 2.85) for $7175!

Last show before the long holiday weekend (C-Note: if you're anything like me), and we kick it off with Brandy Foley, Richard Rock, Mandelyn Hobb, and Brian Nagel playing for a trip to the jewel of the central coast, Monterey. The $2902 trip goes to Brian, who can take a set of accessories, a Vaio laptop, and a Kawasaki KLX110 if he knows which one is the Most Expensive. He goes with the accessories. The laptop... $1590. The motorcycle... $2299. The accessories... $3108!

Richard wins a $2900 set of jewelry and a chance at a Kia Forte (heck of an anniversary present). It isn't $27,536, but each number is One Away from the correct one. Is it $16,645? The lady in the back (or is it the side now?) gives us one... two... three... ... three honks. How about $18,625? The price? $18,647.

Sandra Fields (no relation to Rich) wins a $2598 washer/dryer. Can she be rich after winning 1/2 Off? She gets a $40 tea kettle and a $15 bacon press, but that's it on that end of the equation. She picks #12 for the money... The odds right now, one in 8. She BEASTS the odds and wins the caaaash. And she's not done winning yet, as she moves on to the Showcase.

Meanwhile, Mandelyn wins a $760 PS4 package. To add onto her fun and games, how about a pool table, a foosball table, and an HDTV in the aptly-named-for-today-at-least Squeeze Play?

6 9 3 8 5

She pulls the 3... needed to pull the 9.

Ross Langendorfer scores $625 coffee makers. The newlywed can win something for him and his wife, a Honda Insight in Let'em Roll. He gets the full three. First one... three cars, $1000. He tries again... and gets the rest of the cars!

Last chomp at the bit for Brandy comes with a pair of digital cameras. The price: $700. Winner... Cameron Carlton. Now he gets to add on luggage and an iPad with headphones & cover... not to mention a trip to Puerto Rico and $1000 in Clock Game. He gets the $960 luggage in 23 seconds, but comes up JUST short on the iPad ($868).

Mandelyn takes on Sandra thanks to her win in a spinoff, 85-40 over Ross. First up, I WANNA ROCK! with a drum kit, an electric guitar, a trip to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland (C-Note: fun times in Cleveland again...) and a Chevy Sonic. Top winner Sandra bids $24,500. Mandelyn gets a home gym, a trip to San Francisco, and a Mediterranean cruise. She bids $14,000. Actual price: $21,544, a difference of $7544. Actual price of Sandra's Showcase... $27,540! Sandra rocks a $3040 difference to a total take of $40,193!

Jarvis lands on the M in GAME. His category is THING. With the RSTLNE and his choices of C M G O(no help) we have:

  Adam Engst (Bellingham, WA) gets things going today with $12,500 through 5 questions, but without any lifelines.

He builds that total up to $30,500 before reaching this...

[Q8 - Eye Candy]
While all of these words could be used now to describe George Clooney, which term originally meant "easy to manipulate"?
A: Virile
B: Handsome
C: Debonair
D: Suave

After talking about how the question should've mentioned Cedric instead of George Clooney, Adam, unsure of the answer to this, decides to walk with $15,250! Interestingly enough, the answer is B.

Jessica Pagan-Braun (Valley Village, CA)
In the last couple of years, she converted to Judaism, got married, and moved from New York to California.

She polls the audience on the 1st question, and from that, she gets just $100. She uses her Jumps on the 5th and 6th, which had $1,000 and $3,000. She has $25,600 going into this...

[Q7 - Old Recipe]
First appearing in a cookbook in 1896, the original recipe for Waldorf salad didn't include which of these ingredients?
A: Celery
B: Walnuts
C: Apples
D: Mayonnaise

Jessica is thinking D, but she decides to walk with $12,800! As for the answer, it's actually B!

To finish the episode, Kathy from Lynbrook, Long Island is picked from the audience to play the next question in Jessica's stack for $1,000...

[Q8 - Escape Route]
Allowing a user to receive a fake phone call, a recently released iPhone app from rescues people from what?
A: Bad dates
B: Family reunions
C: Street panhandlers
D: Wild animal attacks

Kathy goes with A... and she's right for $1,000!
