  WIENER IN MY MANHOLE: someone has to drop a wiener in a manhole for $20 for everyone watching. Believe it. Chris wins everyone $20. Then a laundromat dryer turns into a lottery machine giving somebody $100.

HUMAN BEER PONG: two volunteers play for $100... but they are their own balls. Brent beats Taye for $100.

PIN IT TO WIN IT: Mike & Aton get $1 for each clothespin stuck on their face. Winner gets $50. Aton gets $31. Mike gets $104 for the win (that includes the $50).

COCK-A-DOODLE WHO: Pictionary with a strap-on. We see Harry Potter and Katniss Everdeen for $50 each.

NUNS OF ANARCHY: Eat food off other people's plates while wearing a nun's habit for $20 a bite. She wins $100. Hallelujah.

NONE OF THE ABOVE: Multiple-choice questions for cash money... that Derek & David made up. The correct answer is always D for $20. Two people get the joke and the cash.

We end with a BIG ASS PINATA at a baseball game. With $1000 in the crack.

Nicole & David
adopted siblings
Lily & Julie
Lily's expecting
Carson Kressley
"RuPaul's Drag Race"
Sara Rue

ROUND 1: Nicole & David go first with "Tender Teens" (actors who have played teenage TV characters), getting two for $200. Lily & Julie are left with "Movember!" (famous folks with mustaches), getting Burt Reynolds... and that was it for $100.

Time to switch it up! Next, Julie gives on "Not Just for the Amish Anymore!" (famous folks from Pennsylvania), getting just Bill Cosby for $200, $300 total. David is left with "Living in the Shadow of 'Lady Liberty'" (famous New Yorkers), getting eight for $1600, giving them $1800. 

Craig does the delivery on "Andy's a Dandy" (famous Andrews & Andys). The first one was a giveaway, but Nicole & David win, $3200 to $400.

In the bonus round, David gets Lucille Ball, Butt-Head, Sarah Michelle Gellar, New Mexico, and Papa Smurf. Nicole needs the other five in 30 seconds. She gets Kool-Aid Man, Vladimir Putin... but says "menu" on "Dollar Menu". And they were doing so well, too.

Going into round 3 of the nightcap (featuring Kevin McHale & Yvette Nicole Brown):

voice/piano teacher & student Alexis & Corinne: $900
Dallas newlywed game show junkies Dewey & Zinna: $1100

The head-to-head round is... "Can't You 'C' I'm Famous?" (famous names that start with the letter "C"). It looked like Dewey & Zinna were going to run away with it, but here come Alexis & Corinne, who win $3600 to $2000. It's all down to "Beetlejuice" in the final round... but they don't have enough time to convert it!

  Returning champions the Patel family had a nerve wrecking Fast Money round, but they will be relaxed and can't lose focus when they against the Duncan family.
Angie, Harald, Jeff, Debra, Amy
Vivek, Nimisha, Lisa, Dipa, Vanita

SINGLE: an occasion for which you might wear your lucky underwear.
1. Hot date 30         5. Wedding/night 7
2. Job interview 16    6. Anniversary 5
3. Casino/Gambling 11  7. Valentine's Day 4
4. Sporting event 9    8. Exam/Finals 4

SINGLE: something that swings both ways.
1. Door/Gate 30        5. Rope/Vine 4
2. A swing 21          6. Ball bat/batter 3
3. People/Anne Heche13
4. Pendulum 11

DOUBLE: something with teeth.
1. Animals 66          5. A saw 2
2. People 19
3. A comb 8
4. A zipper 4

TRIPLE: something Scotch.
1. Tape 39
2. Whiskey 38
3. Kilt 11
4. Butterscotch 4

The Duncans had to make a tough steal on getting the #3 answer. They got it and win the game.

Angie & Amy will get to play Fast Money. Angie did well, had one low answer, but recovered on her last answer to get 106. Amy went for sweet potato, when she should've thought baked and that wouldn't be enough, resulting on any winning $895.

Fast Money #1 answers
- Something you can buy in the paper products aisle at the supermarket: Paper towels (Amy)
- Tell me a first name that starts with the letter O: Oprah (Angie)
- A kind of bird you see every day: Robin (Angie)
- A word that comes before potato: Baked
- How many kisses does it take to know if there's any chemistry?: 1 kiss (Angie)

In the nightcap, returning champions  the Cedeno family will now be playing against the Speer family.

TRIPLE: something Sleeping Beauty might do while she's sleeping that's not so beautiful.
1. Saw logs 41
2. Have Speaking Booty40
3. Drool 11
4. Have nightmares 3

The Speers had to steal with the #4 answer on the last survey, but the last answer was not sleepwalking. Cedenos win it.

Jamie & Raul will try Fast Money again. Jamie started well, but 5 hours without eating and their home town of Nashville could make you big, made it bad. Her other answers got her 62. Raul could only get one of the remaining #1s and it was another rough outing, giving them a total of another $675.

  Christina was the only one to get Final Jeopardy! last night. She has another game, but can she repeat against...
Christina McTighe

Washington, DC
library associate
Sam Osborne
Lake City, FL
graphic design student
Diana Zinser
Berwyn, PA

Christina starts with $200 "Double" or Nothing. Sam finds the Daily Double under $800 Nice Beard! He's going for it on this: this playwright would've needed a "Major Barbering" to get rid of that beard. "Who is Shaw?" George Bernard Shaw FOR THE DOUBLER, $2000! He has $4200 at the end of the round. With Diana on $4400 to Christina's $4800, Sam will make the first choice in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $800 Revolutionary War Figures, finding the first Daily Double under $1600 "W"orld Cities. He bets $2000 on this: this Irish city on the Suir River is an export center for fruit, meat &, of course, fine crystal. "What is... Watertown?" The crystal was "Waterford", dropping him to $6600. He finds the other under $2000 Revolutionary War Figures, wagering $2200 on this: in March 1775 he told the second Virginia Convention, "We have done everything that could be done to avert the storm." "Who is Patrick Henry?" RIGHT for $11,600! He ends up with $13,200 to $7600 for Christina & $7200 for Diana.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Poets": on completing the "Deathbed" edition of this great work, he wrote, "L.of G. at last complete--after 33 y'rs of hackling at it". Correct response: who was Walt Whitman?

The ladies are all over it. Sam... not so much. Christina picks up another $15,200, giving her $36,800 for two!

The Thursday edition of Super Deal Week starts with Amy (die) as The Woman Who Can't Say No. Our first trader, Ezra (afro guy) gets a choice: $1000 or what's behind Curtain #1. He gets the money, and Amy gets a trio of TVs with a sound system worth $4430. Gabriella (cheerleader) gets a choice: $1000 or what's in the Small Box. She picks the money, and Amy gets a trip to Switzerland (6n @ the Hotel Staubbach) worth $8196. Now the question... Will Amy give up $12,626 in stuff or trade it in for the Big Box? She keeps her stuff... and gives us a shopping go-cart (ZONK!)

Couples Deal time. We have Patrick & Kathleen (leprechaun & pot o'gold) looking for 3 of a Kind for a 2015 TOYOTA COROLLA WORTH $17,725! They pick 4, 5, and 2. 2... is a Queen of Hearts. 5... is a Queen of Spades. Here comes a sure thing: diamond jewelry & a designer purse from YSL worth $3995. They're going for it... What if we added $500? They're still going for it...  and end up with a 4. But they get $100 for their trouble.

Juan (hot dog) gets into a debate between Wayne (curtain #1) and Jonathan (Greenback Party envelope). Wayne burns until he's well done. Jonathan says "check please" and "cash is king". He picks the biscuits, turning down a grill with sauces & garden tools worth $2643. He gets a tip of... $270.

Evonne (fairy) & Michelle (chicken chef) are playing Follow the Leader. Evonne's choices, a Red Box (clues: "there's a pair") and a Green Box ("people will stare"). She picks the green, giving up on a pair of watches worth $2400. Michelle's choices, the Green Box and a small envelope ("not a care"). She picks the envelope and passes on fast food jewelry (ZONK!). Now individual choices: keep the envelope or take Curtain #3. Evonne wants the curtain, and she gets a home arcade with basketball & Xbox One & HDTV worth $5699! In Michelle's envelope.. Aruba (7n @ The Mill Resort & Suites) with $1000 worth $6810!

Next up, Michelle (hula girl from San Diego) & Joseph (cowboy) get in a Dice Duel. Michelle goes first... 5 for $800. Joseph... 7 for $400. Michelle... 8 for $700, $1500 total. Joseph.... 5. Free roll coming... 7, and that's it for him. Now maybe Michelle wants to buy Curtain #1. She does not, and she does not get... a 2015 HYUNDAI ACCENT worth $15,455.

Benjamin (miner) gets Curtain #2... The clue: the sky. Or maybe you want a Big Box. The clue: the road. He takes to the sky, passing up on a scooter worth $2899. But maybe he wants $800 instead.... $1000? DEAL for $1000! He gives up a golf trip to Arizona (4n @ The Wigwam, $4236).

Today's Big Deal is worth $23,152 and a shot at another $50,000 in the Super Deal. Who wants it? It's the chicken and her chef! Michelle picks Door #3. Behind #2: a home office worth $2188. Behind HER door: a pizza baking kitchen & $2000 worth $6734. The biggie was behind Door #1, a bowrider worth $23,152.

What happens when Lunar New Year meets #UDecide Week on TPIR? You'll find out during round 1. Speaking of, here comes Daja Pope, Joelle Brock, Stanley Walkton, and Deborah Swims with an iPad Air & Mini. The $982 iPads go to Daja, who has a shot at a 2015 Hyundai Elantra in Cover Up...

      7 6
    4 1 7
  6 3 9 5
2 9 8 3 0
3 2 7 5 9

The items to be covered up... lanterns & firecrackers for Lunar New Year. First, is it $26,353? Nope. The 2's right, though. $22,495? Nope, but the second 2 drops in. $22,730? No, but now the 0 drops in. $22,870? Nope... but the 8 drops in, and the rest is academic. It's $22,810 for the win!

For our first #UDecide, who will model this pair of patio heaters: George or a special guest? #UDecide... on George with a pair of patio heaters. Stanley wins both of them, $1398, and a chance to add a barbecue island & digital thermometer in Side by Side. They're either $8867 or $6788. He goes with $6788... Sorry.

Joelle picks up a $1425 trio of men's watches, now guess what time it is ... It's #UDECIDE TIME! It's also PLINKO TIME! You had the choice to make each $100 space $10,000 or to make the $10,000 worth $25,000. #UDecide... on the three $10,000 slots for the standard $50,000 take. That said... with chips from Drew, an $87 humidifier, a $46 flatiron, a $99 food sealer, and a $24 handsfree soap dispenser, Joelle wins... $13,000! Nice total to be sure, but it could've been $28,000, because the last chip was dead on the money. Quite literally. But that's just picking nits. Moving on...

Daja wins a spot in the Showcase by default. Meanwhile, Bertha Herrera goes down and up thanks to a $1210 set of snowboard equipment. She'll take that gear to Utah (6n @ Zermatt Resort & Spa) if she homes in on Range Game. She stops it at $6350. The price... $6433!

How green is Ryan Valley? Green enough to take a $610 Xbox One package. Next for him, two pairs of Gucci shoes and a 3DTV. The 1 Right Price: $3285. He goes for the TV... $2100.

Finally, Deborah has last chance last bid on a clothing care system. The price: $527. The winner... with the dollar bid, DEBORAH! Smart play. If it continues, she'll end up with a blender, a laptop, and a 2015 Fiat 500 Pop in 10 Chances. It takes one to win the $80 blender. Easy peasy. The next eight chances... not so easy.

Let's pause. There are always going to be four numbers for the price of the second small prize, from which three will form the correct price. It will always end in zero, which effectively reduces the available options to six. A person who takes eight to come with the price of the laptop has a) never seen this game before, or b) spent too much time listening to people who have never seen this game before. AAAAAAAAND WE'RE BACK IN.

Eight chances to win a $670 laptop, leaving her just ONE for the Fiat. Hopefully she knows her compact Italian hatchbacks. The numbers: 0, 2, 9, 8, 1. She goes with $18,920.... UNBELIEVEABLE.

As incredible as a comeback as that is, it still doesn't get her into the Showcase, as Bertha meets Daja. First up, fun with triangles from a pool table, the frame of a Honda CRF motorcycle, and a triangular pizza slice from Rome (6n @ Hotel Atlante Star). Top winner Daja passes, and Bertha bids $18,235. Daja gets a living room with sofa, chair & coffee table, a trip to Amsterdam (6n @ Hilton Amsterdam), and a 2015 Jeep Patriot Sport. She bids $23,500. Actual price: $31,757, a difference of $8257. Actual price of Bertha's Showcase... $25,770 to win with a difference of $7535! That gives her $33,413!

Stay tuned for the big (car) finish of #UDecide Week tomorrow!

  Nicholas Weston-Swan (Buffalo, NY) begins the show today with $60,500 through 7 questions, and with 2 lifelines on the table.

He jumps the 8th, which only had $100. He then sees this...

In the world of movie sound effects, the ambient chatter of a group of people is called what?
A: Ack-ack
B: Ramma-ramma
C: Ticky-ticky
D: Walla-walla

Nicholas isn't sure about B or D. He then calls on his Plus One, who is his mom. She is actually thinking B. Nicholas still isn't sure enough about it, so he walks with $30,250! As it turns out, the answer is D!

Matthew Schneider (New York, NY)
He has plenty of jobs, including theater director, producer, and handyman.
(+1): His sister, Cole

He asks the audience on the 2nd question, and with their help, he gets $15,000! He calls on his sister for the 3rd, but after plenty of consideration, he then jumps it, leaping over $25,000. His bank sits at $22,000 when this pops up...

Taken the day he died, a famous photograph of Albert Einstein's office in Princeton shows which of these items sitting on his desk?
A: Tobacco tin
B: McDonald's wrapper
C: Rack of poker chips
D: Slinky

Matthew isn't familiar with the photo. After considering B, then A, he says that D jumps out at him. He's not sure enough, though, so he walks with $11,000! As for the answer, it's A.

With little time left, Patty Silver (Wilton, CT) is picked from the audience to play for $1,000...

Allergy sufferers sneeze, sniffle and do the "rabbit nose" all spring because their bodies release what, to fight off that pesky pollen?
A: Endorphins
B: Histamines
C: Estrogen
D: Adrenaline

Patty decides to go with B... and she's right for $1,000!
