| Holey Moley II: The Sequel Season Premiere
by Chico Alexander
Host: Rob Riggle & Joe Tessitore with Jeannie Mai and Stephen Curry
You've suffered 9 long, grueling, golf-less months, and now it's time to kick some putt on a brand new course as we play for the Golden Putter and the coveted Plaid Jacket.
Plus on the course, we have The Tomb of Nefertiti, where one person will have the opportunity to putt for $250,000.
A new round of 18 holes of mini-golf madness begins right now!
ROUND 1: Eight golfers will face off in four match-ups. The winners will move on to Round 2.
HOLE 1: DRAGON'S BREATH - Putt into one of the three holes under the archway to lower the drawbridge and get access to the final hole. All while wearing a suit of armor AND putting downwind of actual fire.
- Erik Gustafson (Lincoln, NE; owns a mini-golf course; descended from Swedish royalty) vs. Jack de Sanz (San Francisco; server; descended? from Spanish royalty). WINNER: Erik
HOLE 2: POLCANO - Putt up the side of the volcano through a rock-laden Plinko board. Land in the center to get the best position. Otherwise, it'll end up in the rough or the hazard depending on where it lands. In any case, you'll have to zipline your way around the pole in the lagoon to the green to finish the hole. Land in the water, it's a stroke penalty.
- Matthew Hedges (Richmond, VA; researches sharks) vs. Marni Van Grouw (Lititz, PA; teacher & proud mom). WINNER: Marni
HOLE 3: BEAVER CREEK - Putt across the fallen tree, then cross over the rotating tree trunk. Land in the water, and it's a stroke penalty.
- Ava Lourenco (Scottsdale, AZ; realtor) vs. Stephanie Gibri (Montreal; real estate agent & cultural ambassador for mini-golf). WINNER: Ava
HOLE 4: PUTT THE PLANK - Jon Lovitz christens this hole, a putt over the bow of a ship. Whoever lands closest to the X gets his help, where he'll chip the ball to the green on the other side of the lagoon. The loser gets to watch as Jon chip it blindfolded. Once the ball is on the other side, the contestants will have to make their way to the green by walking the plank, jumping atop a shark, and then reaching for another plank. Landing in the water is, you guessed it, a stroke penalty.
- Matthew Goldberg (Agoura Hills, CA; realtor & former cheerleader) vs. Tressa Smiley
(Miami; talk show host). WINNER: Matt.
ROUND 2: A sudden death playoff for a spot in the Final Round
HOLE 5: DOUBLE DUTCH COURAGE - Two giant windmills with more blades than season 1. You have to get your ball... and yourself... through. If either land in the water, it's a stroke penalty.
- Marni vs. Ava. WINNER: Marni
HOLE 6: HOLE NUMBER 2. Putt through a 30-foot stretch to the green, then get to the green by running the same stretch while avoiding opening port-a-johns. Drop into the drink, it's a one-stroke penalty.
- Matt vs. Erik. WINNER: Erik.
FINAL ROUND: The winner of this matchup will win the Golden Putter, the Plaid Jacket, and a spot in the finale, where someone will try to win $250,000 in a single putt.
HOLE 7: FRANKENPUTT - Putt your ball through Frankenputt's lair to the green. Every time you miss, it's an electric shock.
- Marni: 2 (MISS)
- Erik: 2. That's the putt and that's the game. Erik, the King of Mini Golf, gets the Golden Putter, the Plaid Jacket, and the guaranteed shot at $250,000!

Day 4 of "Wayne's Favorite Folks" salutes CBS Soaps today! (Wayne and Maile Brady have been on "Bold and the Beautiful!) We start with Janelle the Prehistoric Lady. She is playing for a $19,640 VW Jetta Sedan. The game is ACCELERATOR. We have a ball, a ramp, a spinning wheel and 12 spaces - 4C's, 4A's and 4R's. Janelle must spell CAR to win the Jetta. In round 1, she rolls the ball down the ramp and lands on a C space. Tiffany flips the tile on the C space and reveals $400. If Janelle wants to go for the car, she must roll the ball again risking the $400 because if she lands on another C space, the game is over because C's are now ZONKS. Janelle rolls again and the ball goes down the ramp and lands on...AN A SPACE. We flip the A Tile to reveal $800. She has $1,200 and one last decision. Janelle can either take the $1,200 and split or try to land in one of the 4 R spaces. If Janelle does that, she wins the Jetta. Janelle goes for the car and wins...NOTHING. It was a ZONK.
She picks 2. 1 was a new kitchen with a french door refrigerator, dishwasher and a Year of Tony Luke's Cheesesteaks worth $4,768! 3 was the LMAD Vault with ...$21,175 in cash! THAT WAS THE BIG DEAL! Nicole wins another trip - she is going to Thailand for 6N at the BYD Lofts in Phuket worth $10,322!
Stacy the Flapper is interrupted by Jonathan. We have BREAKING NEWS and Wayne helps her out. She will ask questions about the Curtain 2 prize. And instead of Tiffany and Jonathan answering the questions about the Curtain 2 prize - we have two special guests from "The Young and the Restless" - Tracey Bregman and Christian Le Blanc! Tracy askes Tracey WHAT KINDS OF SOUNDS ARE YOU HEARING BEHIND CURTAIN 2? Tracy says "Crashing Waves and a vibrant party scene." Christian is asked WHAT KIND OF ATTIRE WOULD BE NEEDED TO USE THE CURTAIN 2 PRIZE? Christian would be au naturel but he says "water wings and a sense of irony". Stacy passes on $500...$1,000...for Curtain 2 which is a trip to MIAMI at the National Hotel worth $6,114!
Nicole the schoolgirl nerd gets the LMAD Participant Trophy(in these days everyone gets one). Something else goes with it(besides self-esteem). Will Nicole keep the trophy or the Big Box? Leftovers go to Anthony(as the 70s Uncle Sam). Nicole keeps the trophy. Anthony takes the $700(after refusing at first). He passes on the Big Box which was REN-A-ZONKCE PAINTINGS(ZONK). Will Nicole keep the trophy or take Curtain 2? Leftovers go to Carolyn the Mechanic. She takes Curtain 2 over $1,000...$2,000...she takes the cash and passes on a new dining room from rypen.com and a year of Passion Roses worth $6,459! Nicole has the trophy or she can take the small box. She keeps the trophy and passes on a pair of Gucci Watches worth $2,120! We lift the trophy and find nothing. Would we really give Nicole nothing for the trophy - nope. We flip the trophy to show the bottom and Nicole is going to THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC for 4N at Lotus Villa from YouLiveOnce Vacations worth $11,434!
Jonathon the Lizard(Dinosaur) needs to have a good memory for this deal. We bring out the Gucci Watches from last act. Jonathon will get the watches and the amount of money in cash it was worth if he can remember how much the watches were. In fact we have the numbers of the watch on an envelope to show him - they are 0122. She says $2,120(he's right you know). He passes on $700 and that was a good call - he's right! He has $4,240 in cash and watches!
Farrah(as Princess Tiana from the Princess and the Frog) has Curtain 1. She is going to get a clue in 30 SECOND THEATER. Usually Jonathan and Wayne act out a scene to give a clue. But Wayne has got some help this time - from "The Bold and The Beautiful" we have Scott Clifton and Annika Noelle. Wayne shows them the prize and they act out a scene. After the scene, Farrah passes on $500...$1,000...$1,500 which she takes! That was the right call as it was a CHOCOLATE FONDUE HOT TUB(ZONK). Oh wait, my mistake. You would think that it was the right call - but it was NOT. Tiffany is eating strawberries with chocolate and shows Farrah that she gave up $5,000 in cash that came along with a zonk - THERE'S ALWAYS A TWIST!
Its time to play PAIR-A-DICE with Rodney/Arneta(Jogger/Doctor) for a Chevy Sonic RS Hatchback worth $18,895! Here's how the game works. We have 8 boxes on stage. 6 have good die - a pair of 4s will give Rodney/Arneta $400, 5s will give them $500 and 6s will give them $600. The other 2 have zonks. If they can earn $1,500 before hitting the two zonks that will send them home, they will win the cash and the car worth $20,395! Their first pick is 2 and it is a 5. 6 is the first ZONK. They pass on $200 and pick 3. It is a 4. 4 is the 2nd ZONK. They are out.
Last deal of the day involves Heather(as Winnie the Pooh). We have two cash amounts - Blue ???1 or Red ???2. One value is more than the other. She picks RED. Will Heather take the small box. the Big Box or the cash guess? She picks the small box and passes on a Vespa Primavera Scooter worth $3,999! The Red Amount was bigger by...ONE DOLLAR. The Red was $1,112 and the Blue was $1,111! Heather wins THE SWISS CHEESE ALPS(ZONK)!
Who trades for a $21,175 Big Deal shot? Nicole trades her trip to the Dominican Republic!
