  Last week, sausage was flying as Micah & Alexis were declared wieners. And not in the good way. The rest of the brigade gets the biggest Mystery Box ever, and it starts with Terry Bradshaw... wait, no, that's Gordon in 80-year-old makeup. Graham and Joe... also made up.

MYSTERY BOX powered by Microsoft: inside the Box, aged ingredients - New York strip, Iberico ham, smoked salmon, black garlic, preserved lemon, balsamic vinegar, and blue cheese.

- Jack: Pan-Seared New York Strip with Cauliflower Couscous and Fennel Salad
- Riley: Pan-Seared New York Strip with Beef Ramen Broth
- Andrew: Grilled New York Strip with Fennel Salad & Smashed Potatoes


ELIMINATION TEST: Andrew's first advantage: he doesn't have to cook. His second: a choice among three critters that you can eat and can also eat you - rattlesnake, snapping turtle, and alligator. The choice: gator.

- Jenna: Alligator Curry with Jasmine Curry & Raita
- Kyler: Grilled Alligator with Mushroom & Pepper Rice
- Mia: Fried Alligator Tacos with Watermelon Salsa & Chipotle Mayo
- Cory: Alligator Stir-Fry with Fried Egg
- Nathan: Alligator Chili with Lime Sour Cream
- Jimmy: Alligator Fajita with Guacamole

WINNERS: Jenna, Cory & Nathan. Bottom three: Jimmy, Kyler, and Mia. Jimmy... is spared for the week. Kyler & Mia are going home.

Jonah Ray
"The Jonah Raydio Project"
Ben Kronberg
Ali Wong

While you were busy prepping to roast Justin Bieber... we were going over all of the stages of our pop star friend from the untamed north. Tonight's #HashtagWars: in honor of tonight's State of the Union Address, #RichPeopleProblems. Jonah has 900 to the others' 700.

Next up, Awkward Album Covers and Cringe Benefits (from the CringeGIF subreddit). Tonight's Live Challenge: RSV-FEE. The British are now known for their manners, and a British boy is getting a bill for violation of said manners after no-showing a party he RSVPed yes to. Write an unconventional invoice to someone who's wasted your time. Everybody gets 1000 for my time.

Rounding third with Fox News Apologies, in keeping with the theme of #RichPeopleProblems. We're sorry that Ali is going bye-bye. We really are.

FTW: "Christian Mother Outraged" over "Satanic Pentagram" brake lights on school bus. Write a Missed Connection from the Dark Lord himself. The winning Craigslist entry: "I SPELLED YOUR NAME IN THE SKY WITH FLIES DO NOT DENY ME AGAIN".... and it's Chris's hetero-lifemate JONAH RAY with the win!

And the Christian Mother Outraged on that last story... Here's an invoice for our time. Remember, today's funny becomes tomorrow's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.

  Nicholas is looking for a hat trick tonight.... and perhaps to get a Final right...
Nicholas Bérubé
orig. State College, PA
Daniel Grigg
Colorado Springs, CO
beer wholesaler
Rebeca Avila
Arroyo Grande, CA

Nicholas starts with $200 Sneaker Brands. Rebeca finds the Daily Double under $1000 "A"cademy Award Nominees. She makes it true on this: 11 nominations, 1984; it won 8 Oscars, including Costume Design. "What is 'Amadeus'?" ... is the correct response, but Rebeca said "Titanic" instead. She recovers $1200, but with Daniel on $3600 to Nicholas' $7200, the slowly-sinking teacher will begin Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Carpe "DM", finding the first Daily Double under $800 Dead Poets. She wagers $1400 on this: "So glistered the dire snake, and into fraud / Led Eve our credulous mother, to the tree / of prohibition, root of all our woe." "Who is Milton?" RIGHT for $3800! Second Daily Double goes unclaimed, as Daniel has half of Nicholas' total: $6000 to his $12,000. Rebeca has $8600.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Last Words": in 1170 he said, "I am ready to die for my Lord, that in my blood the Church may obtain liberty and peace". Correct response: who was St. Thomas A Becket?

Daniel's right. Nicholas... wrong again, and in this case, it proves fatal. He leaves with $21,600, but Daniel returns tomorrow with $12,000!

For a slow start, yesterday's Kids Special had quite the finish. You have to see it for yourself at Meanwhile, we start anew with four adult-sized contestants - Marjorie Davis, Brent Hicks, Ashley Goodnough, and Drew Zink - and a woman-sized collection of athletic wear. The $918 wardrobe goes to Drew, who hopes to take from our Drew a treadmill & sauna in Double Prices. Together, they're either $9503 or $7499. He goes with $9503... WRONG.

Ashley takes a $1359 MacBook and a shot at a 2015 FORD FIESTA in Cover Up.

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

The price is not $honkbeep,tootawooga. Is it $16,348? No, but the 16 and the 8 are right. Is it $16,528? No... and no extras are correct either. It's $16,758.

Amy Harrington goes down and up thanks toa $780 ping-pong table. That could be the key to a trip to Spain (6n in Seville) & cameras in Safecrackers. The numbers: 0, 8, and 6. She turns to $860 for the cameras... and she's still locked out. They were $680. She gets another crack at it in the Showcase.

Meanwhile, Brent takes a $545 set of sunglasses... and his future has never been brighter. It's PLINKO TIME! With chips from Drew, a $45 cupcake maker, and a $78 jewelry cleaner, he wins $100. Well, it's something.

Marjorie gets a $2000 pair of diamond earrings and a shot at a 2015 NISSAN FRONTIER KING CAB in Lucky Seven. She has $4 with a board of $22,8__. She tries 5... but 9 zaps her.

We have, as the kids say, a skunk singing Chevalier waiting in the wings. The only thing stopping him: Bernard Ankrah turning a $1055 cutlery block into a set of mixing bowls, small electrics, and a new kitchen in Make Your Move.

3 5 6 5 4 7 8 1 0

She goes with $54 for the mixing bowls, $356 for the electrics, and $7810 for the appliances...

Yeah, that 7 was a dead giveaway. The kitchen was $6547, the bowls $35, the electrics $810.

Brent meets Amy in what the kids call the Meek-Shall-Inherit-the-Earth Showcase. First up, sweet dreams with a new bedroom with sleep set, a trip to St. Lucia (6n @ Bay Gardens Beach Resort), and a 2015 HYUNDAI ELANTRA SE. Top winner (in the biblical sense) Amy bids $24,100. Brent gets to think small with a Galaxy tab, a 3DTV, a folding bike, a Harley-Davidson Sportster, and a trip to Tokyo (6n). He bids $24,000. Actual price... $23,296. For the love of God, Amy, don't mess this up. Actual price of Amy's Showcase... $39,581 to win $40,361.

At least it wasn't a total washout.

  Liza Hunt (Wading River, NY) - 5th grade teacher
She likes to do cartwheels when a student answers correctly in class.
(+1): Her dad, Steve

She brings in her dad on the 4th, and with his help, she gets $7,000 from it! With help from the audience, she gets $2,000 from the 5th! She then jumps the 6th, which had $1,000. She has $29,500 when she faces this...

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, which of these might need to be renamed by 2020, since its namesake attractions may have disappeared by then?
A: Great Sand Dunes National Park
B: Glacier National Park
C: Redwood National Park
D: Everglades National Park

Liza can't imagine glaciers disappearing so soon. She could see A making sense, though, but she's not 100% sure. So, she walks with $14,750! As it turns out, the answer is B.

Abraham Thornton (Timberlake, NC)
(+1): ???

He turns to the audience on the 3rd question, and gets $500 with that help. He then jumps the 6th, which had $15,000. That is where this episode ends; Abraham returns tomorrow with $16,500 in his bank!
