  It's the two-hour finale of "500 Questions"...and I think it's safe to say that, without HEAVY editing, Adam will NOT get through his 500. But at least we get to see a) how far he goes and b) how much he leaves with. As of now, he has $41,000 in-pocket and $9000 in play along with one Wrong. "Three Wrong and you're GONE!" And I'm sure challenger Mehrun wants to see three Wrong so that HE gets a crack at some of the cabbage. Back to the action...

While you were busy getting a text message at 3 in the morning and crowdsourcing the Internet for a response because it's 3 in the morning and your brain just checked out, we were checking out what was trending in the lab on a Tag Team Thursday. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #DadRappers. Whitney leads with 800 to Chris' 600. Nick has 500.

In Act 2, Flight Risks (#PassengerShaming) and High & Fly or High & Dry (super fly high fives). Tonight's T-Mobile Live Challenge: The Googlinheim. A New York artist is selling your Instagram works as art. He gets paid, you get nothing. Because "hanging in an art gallery counts as commentary". Provide some of your own. Whitney's gets her the 1000.

We're coming down the pipe with Dead Links & the Dirty Ground. Come up with as many Jack White clickbaits as you can. Nick... just leaves.

FTW: Kris Jenner plans to trademark "momager". Give us another made-up work Kris Jenner intends to trademark. The winner: "Mombo #5 - a mom who's a 5 out of 10." CHRIS D'ELIA beats Whitney in the game. Whitney beats him with her fists.

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

She goes in for $3500 on this: this city, capital of the same-named country, was overrun by Iraqi forces. "What is Kuwait?" RIGHT for $8500! Adrienne can go for the triple double under $2000 Performers' Autobiographies. She goes for $3200 on this: "This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection" (2010). "Who is Carol Burnett?" GOT IT for $15,700. She ends with that much to Dan's $20,000. Ivan's still alive with $15,200. Someone's gonna be rolling in it by the end of..

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "American Literature": published a year later, "Good Wives" was a follow up to his 1868 novel. Correct response: what was "Little Women"?

Adrienne is right... so is Dan to win $39,999, giving him a three-day take of $85,598!

  This show still exists...

First, mechanics James & Eric... who better win or he's fired (according to his boss)... get to play the best of five quiz. They know about who guided Lewis & Clark (Sacagawea) and the Greek goddess of the rainbow (Iris). What New York street is known as the "Great White Way"? They go with Broadway... and they have the $500! They can keep it or take the Cooler Challenge for double. They take the blue cooler and win... a slapper. "You guys are FIRED! Don't even come out of that boat!" Heh.

Next on the boat are Justin, Jessica, and Mitchell, who like to party. They know the lyrics of the Star Spangled Banner, but don't know about rigor mortis or what comes up with boxcars (double 6s), leading to this PUNISHMENT: Caramel Surprise. All you have to do is finish a caramel apple... sorry, it's a caramel onion. Surprise! Final question for it all... If you lived in the White House, your address would be on a street named after which state? They go with Pennsylvania... Frank's home state! Now will they take the $500 or take a cooler? They take the blue and win... an oops eraser.

Finally, a bachelor party of Jordan, Mike & Brandon (the bachelor). They sweep the round, getting this for $500: how many weeks is a fortnight? Two, of course, is correct. They forego the $1000 for $500, BUT... Frank makes a once-in-a-season offer... Another $500 to go for the Punishment, 3-Second Hair Cut. Brandon goes for it and gets the guys $1000!


In the nightcap, Clay, Kyle & Jake sweep for $500. Savannah & Emily Ann undergo a Punishment, Egg Head (smash 12 eggs on your heads), and win $500 only to trade it for the blue cooler... Party hats. Tyson, Ray & Chris' Punishment, Bobbing for Pickles, get them to the final question for $500. They trade it in for the blue cooler, which has been cool all day... not this time! $1000!

Gateway to the weekend action starts with Guy Livesay, Tolonique Jacobs, John Burford, and Leah Klerr bidding on a pair of tablets with headphones. The $1856 package goes to John, who hopes to get $10,000 in Grand Game. The target match: $4.50. Quaker rice cakes... $3.69. Martinelli's lemonade... $3.29! Hormel bacon... too much bacon, $5.19. Enjoy the $100.

Guy gets a $1720 set of luggage, which is just the right prize to take on a trip to the Bahamas (6n @ Pelican Bay), provided he can withstand the pressure of Squeeze Play.

6 9 3 7 6

He pulls the 3... $6976 is a win!

If it's Rachel in front of the step-and-repeat, it's the PLOW. And this week, it's $2063. Kelley Meeks gets it and a shot to front it in front of a desktop PC... or in a Dodge Journey! It's not just any Any Number playing... it's the 1500TH ANY NUMBER!

CAR: $23,5_7
PC: $84_
Piggy bank: $_.__
STILL IN PLAY - 0 1 6 9

Next for her, 1... in the piggy bank. a 2... gives her the $842 computer. The car was $23,567.

Kelley beats Guy, $1 to 60c in the Spinoff, giving her a bonus of $1000 and a bonus spin... which doesn't give her any more money.

Tolonique gets a $1135 cutlery set. She'll carve corners on a pair of scooters in Bonkers. The price is not $7543. Another contestant fails to go chalk and misses out on the $5299 prize. Folks... sometimes it really is THAT simple.

Leah gets off the schneid and gets a $599 shuffleboard table and a shot to shuffle off in a Toyota Corolla in Five Price Tags. She only gets one guess from a $169 air purifier. So she better make it count.

$20,150
$18,325
$22,645
$19,200
$21,350

She goes wtih $19,200.... NO. It was $18,325.

Holly Wohlers goes down and up thanks to a $735 firepit and a chance at a $2000 ellitpical machine and a $3000 gas range. Or maybe it's a $3000 elliptical machine and a $2000 gas range. Holly... Stay or Switch? She stays... RIGHT!

Tolonique meets Kelley in the Showcase. First up, we gotta get out of this place - trips to Griffith Park in LA (3n @ Luxe City Center Hotel) & Space Camp in Huntsville (3n @ US Space & Rocket Center), and a Hyundai Veloster. Top winner Kelley passes, and Tolonique bids the minimum, $20,000. Kelley relaxes with a trip to Disney World (6n @Hyatt Regency Grand Cyprus Resort), a smart 3DTV, and a sailboat. She bids $23,197. Actual price: $24,584, a difference of $1387. Actual price of Tolonique's Showcase... $28,851, giving the W to Kelley! She takes $28,489 off of CBS's hands! Say hi to Mickey for us!

  Natalie Pinkston (New York, NY) - Special Ed. teacher
She knows a few hip-hop moves.
(+1): Her boyfriend, Cody

She polls the audience on the 3rd question, and their help adds $100 to her bank. She jumps the 5th, which had $5,000. She faces this with $33,100...

[Q6]
What animals only began living in Colombia's Magdalena River Valley after being imported into the country by drug lord Pablo Escobar?
A: Red howler monkeys
B: West Indian manatees
C: Crocodiles
D: Hippopotamuses

Natalie is thinking A or C, leaning more towards A, but she decides to bring in her Plus One. Cody is also leaning towards A. So, Natalie goes with that... but it's D! Ouch. As a result, she leaves with $1,000.

Haina Just-Michael (New Rochelle, NY)
(+1): Her buddy, Roberta

She needs help from her buddy on the 2nd question, but Roberta isn't sure enough of it, so Haina jumps it, leaping over $15,000. She has $3,100 after 3 when the horn goes off; Haina returns tomorrow!
