JEOPARDY! ROUND: Singer,s US Islands, Name & Number, Spanish to English Rhyme Time, Bugle Calls, Let's Eat
Josh draws the first position, and he goes wtih $200 Spanish to English Rhyme Time to start. Emma finds the Daily Double under $800 Name & Number. Currently sitting on $600, she's the only one in money. She wagers $1000 on this: at least 11 wounds from sharp weapons were found on his skeleton after it was dug from a Leicester parking lot in 2012. "Who is Richard III?" RIGHT for $1600! She ends up wtih $5000 to $4200 for Josh. Eric has $3000 and the board to start....
DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Jeopardy! Keywords, Not; The Human Body, 5-Syllable Words, Ghostwriters, TV Taglines, "Schu" Who?
... with $1600 TV Taglines. Emma finds the first Daily Double under $600 The Human Body. She wagers $4000 of her $14,200 ($7600 more than Josh) on this: in Scrabble, this alternate name for the tailbone will get you many more points than "tailbone". "What is coccyx?" That's right as long as you don't count for bonuses... here's $18,200! Eric finds the other under $800 Ghostwriters. He has $7400, $15,600 behind Emma. He goes in for $3600 on this: speechwriter Ted Sorensen admitted that he wrote the first draft of most of this Pulitzer Prize-winning book by JFK. "What is 'Profiles in Courage'?" RIGHT for $11,000! He ends up with $13,000 to $23,800 for Emma. Josh is still in it with $12,200.
FINAL JEOPARDY! in "20th Century Art": a derisive description of the shape of the houses in the 1908 painting "Houses at L'Estaque" gave this art style its name. Correct response what is cubism?
Josh misses, but only is left with $10,597, meaning he's gonna have to hope for help. Eric... misses and his tournament is over. Emma, on the other hand, is right to lock in a place for next week.

Lana will roll a special 10 sided die down a ramp. It has red spaces, yellow spaces, blue spaces and one black starred space(WILD). If Lana can get the red, blue and yellow discs off the ramp and make the WIN FALL (get it?) based on the rules we set, she will win the Jeep. Lana rolls RED, then YELLOW, then another YELLOW. Yellow is now a bad color. If Lana rolls Yellow again, she is OUT. Wayne offers $500. Lana passes and is OUT. Three Yellows in a row is NO GOOD.
Nurse Christine gets our Cat Gray Inspiration Poster with the caption "When Nothing Goes Right...Go Left." Behind that caption is cash. Will Christine take the cash OR Curtain 2? She passes on $212 for Curtain 2 which is a new HDTV! It's a 65" 4K HDTV and Credenza along with a Philips Hue Lighting Package worth $6,085!

They take Curtain 1 and pass on a trip to TORONTO for 4N at the Chelsea Hotel worth $7,350! 1 was a NACHO CHEESE HOT TUB(ZONK)!
We need 2 people to play ROCK PAPER SCISSORS. King Khalil and Aubrey(as Party Ben Franklin) are our players. We have three screens. As you know PAPER covers ROCK, SCISSORS cuts PAPER and ROCK beats SCISSORS. Both our traders will pick screens. The Winner of the Game gets $1,500 and plays on. Loser sits down with $100. Khalil picks 1 and it is ROCK. Aubrey wins with PAPER under 3. She has $1,500 and moves on. Khalil sits down with $100. SCISSORS was under 2.
