She hits a $1,000 P, a $1,000 C, but loses $10,900 and the 1/2 Car for a D. Jerry solves THE PERFECT BAY FOR SNORKELING for $1,250 and a trip to Maui!

Jamie & Molly
sisters & teachers
Michael Ealy
"Think Like A Man Too"
Yvette Nicole Lee

Round 1: Jolicia & Felicia start with "Late to the Game" (famous folks who joined a series after the first season), getting four for $400. Jamie & Molly answer back with "Jeepers Creepers, Where'd Ya Get Those Peepers" (celebrities with blue eyes), getting three for $300.

ROUND 2: Simple choice. "Little Names" or "Big Names". Jamie gives on "Little Names" (names with "Little"), getting three for $600 more, $900 total. Felicia gives on "Big Names" (names with "Big"), getting two for $400 more, $800 total.

Craig gives on "It's All Relative" (famous names that include a family title). Jamie & Molly get the first four for $1000 ($1900 to $800 lead). Jamie only misses "Sister Christian" (she says "Sister Jew") en route to a $3200 to $1300 win.

In the $20,000 bonus, Jamie messed up again, saying 2 in "U2". Still, she ends up with four. Molly will try and sweep up the spare with six. But she only gets "Cheetos".

In the nightcap (featuring Raven-Symone & Sara Rue), restaurant co-workers Kat & Mike beat out friends Elizabeth & Elaine, $3000 to $1600, then parlay that into $20,000 when Kat gets four and Mike gets six.

  Returning champions the Hall family are getting hot, and they now play agianst the Byrd family of all ladies.

Kim, Chris, Megan, Doug, Dustin
Crystal, Kimberly, Darla, Cathy, Arianna
Akron, OH

SINGLE: fill in the blank. "I'd have to be really thirsty to drink milk from a _______." what?
1. Cow's udder 29        5. Baby's bottle 6
2. Carton/Jug 21         6. Chick's nipple 4
3. Goat's teat 12        7. Toilet 3
4. Shoe 9                8. Dirty glass 3

SINGLE: 100 single men: something you dad tells you to look for in a woman. (Both families didn't know what to look for on the #1 answer.)
1. Humor/Personality 21  5. Cooking skills 11
2. Hotness 20            6. Smarts 8
3. Caring/Nurtures 17    7. Good w/money 5
4. Loyalty/Honesty 15

DOUBLE: 100 married men: a fairy animal that feels like you're sleeping with when your wife doesn't shave her legs.
1. Porcupine 50          5. Sheep 3
2. Dog 27                6. Hedgehog 2
3. Bear 13
4. Beaver 5

TRIPLE: something a stupid criminal would post a selfie on himself holding.
1. Stolen goods/cash 57
2. Gun/Weapon 30
3. Drugs 6
4. His I/D./address 4

This game was for the Byrds, as the last survey, had only the #1 answer was given by the Halls, givng the Byrd ladies to know #2, to send the Halls off with their $40,000.

Kimberly & Crystal will play Fast Money. Kimberly crashed on the last two answers, thinking people read Housekeeping in the checkout line and you'd find lots of seeds in grapes. The others got her 48. Crystal could only come up with one of the remaining four #1s, but the ladies will try again next time, after earning a total of $690.

Fast Money #1 answers
- Something that would be on a baby's list of things to do today: Cry (Kimberly)
- Give me something that starts with the word artifical: Artificial sweetener
- The most difficult age for a woman: Age 40 (Crystal)
- A magazine people might read in a grocery store checkout line: People
- A fruit with lots of seeds: Watermelon

In the nightcap, we got two new families playing, who are the Reed family and the Glenn family. The Reeds thought the #4 answer on the last survey was the horse was pregnant, but the game was sent into sudden death.

Sudden death question: Name something man wears below his beer belly. Glenns get in first and said, Pants. Wrong! Reeds win it knowing it's a Belt (68).

Rebecca & Joe will try Fast Money. Rebecca started and ended slow, but still got 62. Joe goofed up on two of his answer, thinking salt is a spice on a spice rack and Alabama as a city lots of songs are about. Need to listen to Frank Sinatra more Joe, and start spreading the news as they will only get $500.

  Simple economics lesson... have more money than the other two at the end of the day. That's what Alexander has done, so he plays for three against...
Alexander Persaud

orig. Dubuque, IA
PhD student in economics
Deb Williams
Hudson, OH
member services counselor
Elizabeth Webster
East Lansing, MI
ESL teacher

Alexander starts with $200 Never Been Higher, finding the Daily Double under $600 Libros en Espaņol. He bets $1800 on this: the first in a series: El Leon, La Bruja y El Ropera. "What is "The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe?" GOOD for $4800! He ends up with 8600 to $2800 for Elizabeth. Deb has $1400 and the first clue in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Sculpture. Alexander finds the first Daily Double under $1600 The Last King of Scotland... He fronts $2000 on this: ... of this house was David II, son of Robert. "What is the Bruce?" RIGHT for $13,000! Elizabeth counters with the second under $1200 Initially Medical. She fronts $2000 on this: for a cardiologist or a DJ: BPM. "What are beats per minute?" Good for $6400! She ends up with $8800 to Deb's $3000. But with $27,800, the game is Alexander's to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "The 18th Century": losses in this event included 12 chests of Souchong. Correct response: what is the Boston Tea Party?

Everyone's in with the correct response, but Alexander adds on another $35,000 to take his total to $61,000.

Joshua Lemere, Rhonda Murray, Kaitlyn Fox & Jagroop Kooner kick off the Tuesday party at 33 with an HDTV. The $1000 TV goes to Jagroop, who gets a chance at a Scooter and a home gym. The 1 Right Price: $3495. He affixes it to the scooter.... which is $1999.

Rhonda wins a $1400 set of Earth Watches. Guess what time it is now. It's time for... Cover Up. Gotcha. She'll have to have a Ford Focus in focus if she wants to win. It's $19,32.... 6, 5, 8, or 0. She goes with the 5... But it was the 8.

Shannon Whitehurst goes down and up thanks to a $630 PlayStation 4 package. She can buy a lot more games with $20,000 if she wins Time Is Money. The products of great import: Kashi Trail Mix granola bars, El Monterey chicken taquitos, Advil Liqui-Gels, Aunt Nellie's pickled beets, and Satin Care shave gel. She goes seven tries at it... and times out. Correct:

LOW: Beets
MIDDLE: Granola bars, Shave gel, Pain relief

Rhonda beats Shannon, 55 to 30, in a Spinoff situation. Meanwhile Shannon Valdez will try to put a W on the board with a $1803 paddleboard. She'll do it in Cancun (6n @ Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya) if she wins Check Game. She writes it out for $2500. The trip... $6004. The total: $504 over.

Kaitlyn has a ticket to Leftover Island, while the rest of us have a tomato bath awaiting by the time we deal with a this week's PLOW. The price: $1590. The winner... Gloria Sanchez. She's got one and ONLY ONE shot to save us all from a skunking with a hot tub and chaise lounge in Flip Flop. The price is not $8631. She flips to $6831. But it was $8613, which means... exactly what this show has turned into, a FLOP.

Joshua takes on Rhonda in the Showcase. First up, spanning the globe to Chicago (6n @ Hotel Felix), Denmark (6n @ Copenhagen), and Australia (6n @ Sheraton Mirage Resort & Spa on the Gold Coast). Top winner Joshua bids $21,150. Rhonda gets a new kitchen, an all-in-one PC, and a Dodge Dart. She bids $25,000. The price... $24,374. Overshot it by $626. Actual price of Joshua's trips... $26,556 to win $28,026.

So yeah... Company show.... all about making money for the company.
