While you were watching Cirque du Soleil throw out the first pitch at a Blue Jays game on a Tag Team Thursday... we were wrapping up the @midnight week.with a word jumble. Today's #HashtagWars: #SpookyCartoons. PFT and Greg are tied at 700. John has 600.

As we continue on, we have Black and WTF (from the Tumblr of the same name) and tonight's Live Challenge, Star Wars: A New Low. On imgur, we have a picture of R2-D2 peeing. Please give us the synopsis for R2-D2's depressing story line. Hodgman gets the 1000 from this: R2D2 goes on a bender after learning the's not really a robot, just a little person shoved into a trash can for 2350

We're rounding third with Ride Below the Crupper. Come up with as many old-timey terms for doing it. Unfortunately, Greg is narrowly in third and must be red-lit.

FTW: a German amusement park was built on the former site of a nuclear power plant! Write a TripAdvisor review of this 3 Mile Fun Island. The winning review: "My wife & I's local cancer cluster were just looking for a nice day out, not a 25 min shower with a fire hose. That said, I did enjoy the petting zoo. I never thought goats could get that big or walk erect like men. Some lines were too long." That gives the weekend to... JOHN HODGMAN!

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

  Tonight, three amateur chefs will use insane ingredients and whatever's left in their fridges to come up with awesome late-night snacks. Winner gets $1000, a place in the Snack-Off Cookbook and the illustrious Golden Spork.
 
Xavi

student
Lizzie
Palmdale, CA
dog walker
Kelvin
parts unknown
entrepreneur

In Round 1, you have to RAID THE KITCHEN for whatever you can find. You have 25 minutes to create a dish based on this theme: leftovers from a holiday feast.

Xavi: Bomb-tons (Wontons filled with Thanksgiving leftovers and a side of eggnog)
Lizzie: Holiday Helper (similar to what Xavi made)
Kelvin: Multi-Level Holiday Sandwich

And the only one who didn't make a wonton-based wrap is going home. Sorry, Kelvin.

In the Final Snack-Off, our players will have full access to Snacktopia. They will have 30 minutes to make their signature snack, which MUST feature in some way the Mystery Munchie. Today's Mystery Munchie... COOKIES!!!! NOM NOM NOM!

And if Lizzie copies Xavi's dish again... there will be blood. 

Xavi: The Super Baked Sandwich (cereal-crusted chicken with cookie buns)
Lizzie: Thai Surprise (cookie-coated shrimp on top of Sriracha slaw)

IT'S JUDGMENT TIME!!! The Snack-Off Champion.... LIZZIE?? Which means that Xavi's recipe will be in the Snack-Off cookbook.

Julie Kling (New York, NY)
She once dined with Queen Elizabeth II.
(+1): Her dad

She turns to the audience on the 2nd question, and with their help, she gets $3,000. She then jumps the 5th, missing out on $5,000. Her dad is called upon to help with the 7th, and thanks to him, Julie gets another $15,000! Her total is up to $62,100 when she faces this...

[Q9]
Among four-year colleges, what nickname is the most common for sports teams?
A: Cardinals
B: Eagles
C: Falcons
D: Lions

Although she once worked for a university, Julie has no idea, so she walks with $31,050! As for the answer, it's B.

With little time left for today, Gina Begotti (Bethel, CT) is pulled from the audience to play for $1,000...

Known for their hot dog eating contest, the original Nathan's Famous in Coney Island is also famous for serving what amphibious dish?
A: Fried snails
B: Horse sausage
C: Chicken gizzards
D: Frog legs

Gina eliminates B, and wants to say A or C. But instead, after some thought, she says D... and that is right for $1,000!


In the nightcap, AnnMarie Grillo (Yonkers, NY) channels her animal spirit - Terry - to this question...

Before becoming a famous chef, Julia Child was rejected by the US military for what reason?
A: She was too nearsighted
B: She had a criminal record
C: She was dyslexic
D: She was too tall

Her +1 didn't know it, so AnnMarie walks with $26,500. Correct answer: D. She was 6'2".

Zack Tolmie (Altamont, NY) builds a bank of $13,600 for tomorrow's show.
