  It's the only game show where best buds compete for prizes, and most of all, pride, and it's back for another season.

Round 1: Man Knowledge. Each question is worth 100, but hidden within this round is a trick question. Answer it correctly, and you go back to zero, because apparently it's not manly enough. And yes, like life, this game is not fair. Jay's words, not mine. Bonus points given for smack. Michael leads with 400 to the others' 100.

Round 2: Man Skills. Stuff a true man ought to do, like... fixing almost anything with duct tape. You have 60 seconds to fix as many things as you can with duct tape. First place gets 200, second 150, third 100. Player with the least amount of points says goodbye to the game and - more importantly - to their stuff. Winner: Michael for 200, 600 total. Jordan gets 150, 250 total. Anu has 100... Hit the bricks; with 200, you're done.

Round 3: Man Debate. Would you rather win the Lombardi Trophy or the Stanley Cup? Michael, leading, picks the Stanley Cup, saying it's a giant cup and you can drink out of it. Jordan gets the Vince Lombardi... and bored us to death. Michael wins the Man Belt and the stash.

ROUND 1: Vince & Felisha start with "I'll Be There For You" (guest stars on "Friends"), getting only Brooke Shields for $100. Matt & Skippy get "Papa Was One of These..." (famous people on the cover of the Rolling Stone), rallying off five for $500.

ROUND 2: After the switching of the stars, Matt gives on "Dinner and a Show" (MORE Vegas headliners), getting three for $600 (missing out on David Copperfield), $1100 total. Felisha gives on "You Pierced My Heart" (folks known for their piercings), getting six for $1200, $1300 total.

... right before "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" was taken off the board to tie the game (Felisha said "Girl").

No one's reached $3000 yet, so Craig gives on "AC/DC" (famous names with the initials "AC" or "DC"). Matt gets dark chocolate, and Skippy can't hold his peanut butter. They win, $3100 to $1900.

In the bonus round, Matt goes bonkers on the board, only missing his 8th. Skippy picks that up... after Ferrari and The Bachelor for the $20,000 win!

In the nightcap (featuring Joey Lawrence and Karina Smirnoff), dog lovers Khalilah & Alexia beat out mommies Sara & Sarah, $3400 to $1100. Khalilah gets six in the bonus. Alexia gets Lance Bass, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Almond Joy... and misses out on Solitaire.

  We've got another episode this week, with Jack and Valerie competing. After the warmup, Jack leads with 25 to Valerie's nothing.

CUT ROUND: Mirror Mirror. You have 60 seconds to read two clues for 50 points each. But they'll be reading backwards. Valerie gets seven for 350. Jack gets three for 150, 175 total.

SHAVE ROUND: Jon will give each player a word or phrase to draw in the mirror using shaving cream. You have 30 seconds to convey it to your stylist for 100. Today, it's things Jon's wife has called him. Jon closes the gap with 375 to 450 for Valerie

STYLE ROUND: Dryer Liar. Three salon regulars, three facts, one false. Correct answers are worth 100. Jack gets facts about Oprah Winfrey (she is not half-Jewish) for 100 more, while Valerie gets football movies (of which Three-and-Out is not) for 100. Valerie remains ahead, 550 to 475.

THE FINAL CUT: The category: Dog or Dessert? The players have 45 seconds to answer either/or questions with their hand mirrors. Player with the most points gets $5000. Valerie gets 8 for 4000, 4550 total. Jack gets... five for 2500. Not enough! Valerie wins!

BONUS ROUND: Match five things in a category (in this case: Rappers). If she matches all five, she wins $5000 more, $10,000 total! If not, she gets the Hair Jacked Do of the Day... the Cockatoo. She's... going for it! The answers: Ne-Yo (who is a singer, not a rapper), Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Pitbull, and Macklemore.. Match their real names! She goes with Shaffer Chimere Smith, Andre Young, Calvin Broadus, Armando Perez, and Ben Haggerty.... ALL RIGHT FOR $10,000!

  As we continue on in post-tourney mode, Doug defends against...
Doug Perez

Monrovia, CA
database developer
Mariusz Galczynski
St. Charles, IL
university lecturer
Eugene Britton
Gonzalez, LA
chemical engineer

Doug starts with $200 Expressions from Baseball. Mariusz finds the Daily Double, a video under $1200 Traditional Foods as National Flags. He's going for it on this: the recipes for this country's flag: chorizo & arroz. "What is Spain?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2800! At the half, Mariusz has $8400 to $3400 for Eugene. The champ is on $1800, but he's got the board to start Double Jeopardy!... 

... with $400 Before & After. Mariusz finds the first Daily Double under $800 She's a Goddess! He bets $5000 on this: a crater deep inside Kilauea Volcano is said to be the home of this goddess responsible for many eruptions. "Who is Pele?" That's right, but Mariusz blanks his way down to $5400. Last clue belongs to Eugene, $1600 The Reign of Terror. He bets only five on this: in 1794 her first husband Alexandre de Beauharnais was executed & she was imprisoned. "Who is Marie Antoinette?" No, it was Josčphine, leaving him with $12,995 to Mariusz's $10,200. In the middle: Doug with $11,000.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "People in the Arts": he once said, "It is through fantasy that children achieve catharsis. It is the best means they have for taming wild things". Correct response: who was Maurice Sendak?

Where the Wild Things Are? Where the money is, with Mariusz, who gets $20,350. Doug leaves with $18,000.

  Sam & Mitchell had to check out last week. This week, a rather eggs-cellent challenge... all you have to do is create the perfect sunny-side-up egg. Over. And over. For every perfect egg you produce within 10 minutes, you will have a crucial advantage in the Elimination Test. Abby ended up creating TWO. Oona and Adaiah had four each. Josh and Levi made five. Logan had seven. Sean ended up with 10 to Samuel's 8.

Why does this matter?

ELIMINATION TEST: make a signature dish using the same number of ingredients as the number of perfect eggs you prepared. Sean will have 10 ingredients from the pantry, while Abby will try and make something out of two. And they have to dream big, as in your own restaurant big.

The top two dishes: Abby (Broiled Salmon & Asparagus Five Ways) and the winner of the challenge: Samuel (Five Spiced Seared Duck with Pesto Cucumber & Broccolini Puree).

Bottom four: Josh, Levi, Oona, and Sean. Two of them will be returning to their station. Those two: Sean & Oona. Josh & Levi will be going home.

Follow me here. It's Tuesday. But because of the abbreviated week, it's the middle of the TPIR week, and we have Larry Goodman, Adrienne Allison, Michael Anderson, and Sandra Park playing for a sapphire & cubic zirconia bracelet. The $1325 jewelry goes to Sandra, who gets to take away a $2889 (?) laptop and a $3119 (?) grill if she can correctly determine whether to stay or Switch?. She switches... and it's a good move!

Sophia Simpson goes down and up thanks to an $800 espresso machine. Let's see if she'll stay wired for a Toyota Prius in Money Game.

68  43  22
21  75  94
56  80  20

Middle number is 8. 22... Money. 20... FRONT! 75 and 43... both money. Last pick is 68... and she wins $140... and the $20,868 car!

Adrienne picks up a $1893 PLoW. She'll look like a million bucks (divided by 40) if she aces Punch-a-Bunch. She gets three hits from a $57 curling iron, a $130 carpet cleaner, and a $42 space heater. First hit... $500. She trades that in... for $5000! And she's happy with that. Third hole had $250. Adrienne has the finesse for a Showcase berth.

Meanwhile, Michael scores $500 off of a $700 set of luggage. Can he do likewise for a trip to Belize (6n @ the Xanadu Island Resort)? Only if he can Pick-a-Pair. Melitta coffee filters.. $3.49. Wheat Chex... $4.49. He trades the cereal for the Johnson's baby powder... and he kept the wrong one.

Larry wins another $500 wad off of a $799 recumbent bike. We're giving it away. Maybe this bodes well for a candy maker, a pair of cameras, and a Ford Focus in 10 Chances. He only uses 2 for the $40 candy maker, but he burns one on a $680 pair of cameras, leaving him just two for the car. The numbers: 9 1 7 0 6. He burns one on $17,906. Last chance with $19,760... It was $19,670. If he only had those two chances back.

Finally, Samuel Morgan wins a $1675 cutlery block. He'll stay razor sharp carving turns on a waverunner if he wins Double Prices. The prices: $9084 or $7880. He goes with $9084... RIGHT!

Larry beats Michael, 65 to 55, to earn the second spot on Showcase Row. First up, we play the three W's (who, what, where) with a Wii U package & 3DTV, a pair of scooters, and a trip to Mauritius (6n). Top winner Adrienne passes, and Larry bids $20,250. Adrienne gets to sail away in style with a $3000 shopping spree in Paris (6n @ Le Six Hotel), and a sailboat. She bids $27,000. Actual price: $38,655, a difference of $11,655. Actual price of Larry's Showcase... $20,..... 911 to win with a difference of only $611! He gets a total of $22,930!

Tomorrow's Price-giving, and we're having a special guest whip us a feast.
