The One to Rule
by Chico Alexander
GSN: Friday 7p/6C
Host: Mike Richards
Time to begin a new season of a show
that's built for its time..
After round 1, they manage to earn
$4177... before getting the next question wrong to split their
bank to $2089.
- Q1: The two top-selling drugs of 2016 are used to treat which of
these conditions: a) arthritis b) hepatitis C c) high blood
pressure? Chester accidentally hits the Takeover on A and C, which
the team would've locked in with otherwise. It was A... and B.
They're down to $1045.
- Q2: Which two of these colors are included in a standard Crayola
box of eight crayons: a) white b) brown c) black? They go with B &
C... GOOD for another $8330, giving them $9475.
- Q3: From a poll reported on by Today, when it comes to stoking
the flames in the bedroom, husbands are more turned on by which
two of these: a) sweet talk b) dirty talk c) sexy clothes? They
lock in B & C... RIGHT to end the round with $18,165... but one
player is not going home with a single penny of it.
Here come the 15 free seconds.... Talitha changes her vote to
Round 3 changes: either two or all three answers in Q1 are
correct. Q2 is the order question. The value for each has not
- Q1 ($15,000): Which of these rappers share a real last name with
a US president: a) Jay-Z b) Eminem c) 50 Cent? They go with A &
C... Carter and Jackson are RIGHT for $11,977, giving them
- Q2 ($25,000): According to a YouGov poll, put these causes of
apocalypse in order of how likely American think they are,
starting with the most: a) Climate change b) Nuclear war c) Alien
invasion? They go with BAC... RIGHT for a grand total of
$48,287... which divides up like this...
A (60%): $28,972
B (30%): $14,486
C (10%): $4829
It doesn't take but a few seconds after Talitha and Chester decide
which of them is going to take B...
Ido: C ($4068)
Talitha: B ($12,205)
Chester: A ($24,409)
In the nightcap, a successful
Takeover cements Diamond's (Compton, CA; fashion designer) place
in the game with David (Gaffney, SC; bartender) & Minolta (Queens,
NY; personal chef) on the back of Jennifer (San Diego; PTA
president). They end up with a bank of $10,610.
A (60%): $6366
B (30%): $3183
C (10%): $1061
David was adamant that he was going home with the largest share or
nothing at all. Well, he's right there. He's going home with
nothing at all. As are Minolta and Diamond.
America's Got Talent
by Chico Alexander, Jason Block & Gordon Pepper
Host: Tyra Banks with Mel B, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum & Howie
From here on out, the performers are
competing for cash and glory without a net. Welcome to Live Shows!
Twelve acts will perform tonight. America will vote for five to
advance. Let's go to the Dolby Theatre...
- Christian Guardino: sings "Make It Rain" by Ed Sheeran. Simon
enjoyed the song choice, but he needs to make a bigger risk.
- Artyon and Paige: preteen dancers perform a tribute to
"Footloose". Simon & Howie agreed that it's a step up.
- In the Stairwell: a cappella group from US Air Force Academy
singing "Some Nights" by fun. Howie thought it was a step up, but
the rest of the judges were enthusiastic in their praise.
- The Singing Trump: the former Jeff Trachta sings "Shut Up and
Dance" by Walk the Moon with a bit of Hammer Time thrown in. Simon
thought it was (C-Note: like the actual presidency) ... "cut down
on the tweeting, work on the choreography". Heidi didn't mind that
it was offbeat. Howie thought it was horrible.
- Angelica Hale: sings "Clarity" by Zedd & Foxes. She has range,
control, and notes for days.
- Bello Nock: The judges agreed to bring this act back as a
wild-card. He performs the Wheel of Death, bouncing and flipping
inside a large wheel.
- Just Jerk: dance crew performs to "Turn Up the Music" by Chris
Brown. Didn't have the wow of previous acts, but nevertheless very
- Puddles Pity Party: sings "Royals" by Lorde. Lord.... make him
- Preacher Lawson: his routine includes Oprah, gangstas, cell
phones, and Guinness records for clapping. A few might have been
broken tonight, because he's very witty and on point. Heidi was
the only judge who didn't feel it.
- Yoli Mayor: sings "Human" by Rag'n'Bone Man. A little flat, but
had the tone. Simon thought it was overproduced, but she still had
talented chops. Mel B thought "something was off".
- Billy and Emily England: turned up their rollerskating act with
a few daredevil stunts
- Darci Lynne Farmer: introduced her friend "Oscar", who sang
"Who's Lovin' You" to Mel B.
