While you were busy hitting up Spotify for a job, President Obama, we were definitely not bullied into doing a segment on "The Bachelor". Tonight's #HashtagWars: #HipHopHarryPotter, because Yung Mavu on YouTube is the ish. Flula and Ify tie with 700. Katie has 600.

Next up, how about a little Commercial Failure: Tokyo Drift (Japanese commercials and the people on them) and tonight's Live Challenge, Playing on Grass. Clemson shocked the world by upsetting Alabama, and Bill Walton shocked Michelle Beadle by making a play for her while wanting to get high. What does Uncle Sam Bill Walton want you to do? Ify gets 1000 from "I want you... to tell me if you're a cop."

Speeding it up with New Celebrity Urban Legends. Flula is legendarily eliminated.

FTW: VPEOTUS has arrived in Washington with his family and rabbit, Marlon Bundo. Give us the title of a children's book starring GOP spokesrabbit Marlon Bundo. The winner: "Where The Wild Things Are. Spoiler Alert: Mexico". Congratulations, KATIE!

Tomorrow's funny makes for the game on Wednesday. Continue the game online @midnight.

  Blair fought off a marvelous champ and succeeded. Now it's all about her to defend.
Blair Moorhead
Arlington, VA
social worker
Colby Taylor
Olive Branch, MS
assistant professor of psychology
Libby Hunt
retired consultant

JEOPARDY! ROUND: "Roll" Call, Entertainment Under the Sea, New Words in the 1600s, The Civil WAr, We Predict Your Horoscope, Where's That Opera House?

Blair starts with $200 Entertainment Under the Sea. At the TV timeout, Colby leads with $5200 to $1200 for Blair. Libby has $800.

(FUN FACT: Libby is related to Allen Ludden)

Colby finds the Daily Double under $1000 The Civil War. He triples the level on this: US Grant's initials came to stand for this after giving extremely limited capitulation terms to Gen. Bruckner. "What is 'unconditional surrender'?" RIGHT for $8200! He ends up with $11,600 to $3600 for Libby. Blair the champ has $2600 and the first pick in...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Role CAll, Science, Women Poets, Variety Pack, 11-Letter Words, Fort-itude.

... with $400 Role Call. Colby finds the first Daily Double under $1600 11-Letter Words. He fronts $3000 on this: a dinner in appreciation & remembrance of one's past service or achievements. "What is a commemoration?" Too many letters. It's a testimonial, dropping him to $17,000. Libby finds the other under $1600 Women Poets. She bets $3000 on this: "In Exile" & "In the Jewish Synagogue at Newport" are 2 other poems by this woman who was put on a pedestal in NY. "Who is Edith Wharton?" No, it was Emma Lazarus, leaving her with $3000. She recovers to $7400 to $10,600 for Blair, but Colby is way out in front with $19,800.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Beatles Songs": of the Beatles songs on which Ringo Starr sang lead, this one charted the highest, reaching No.2. Correct response: what is "Yellow Submarine"?

Blair is the only one to get it right... but Colby held back to win $18,399. Blair leaves with $19,402.

Tuesday's Trading starts off with Trina the Loofah. She can take the $100 on the outside Bankroll or Curtain 3. Curtain 3 is WORTH MORE THAN $1,000. She takes the curtain and passes on $100 + 22 X $50 = $1,200 and something else was in the bankroll - a trip to Scotland for 5N at a Scottish Castle worth $6,835! That means the bankroll was worth $8,035 in cash and trip! Trina can take Curtain 3 or go for Curtain 2 which is WORTH LESS THAN $15,000(how much less we don't know). She sticks with 3. Curtain 2 had a refrigerator, dishwasher and 1 year's worth of snacks delivered to your home from The Taste Club. It's worth $4,318! Trina wins an 60" LED HDTV with nVidia Shield worth $2,800!

We need someone to play PAIR-A-DICE. It's Michael the Clown. We have 8 boxes with 4 pair of matching die. If Michael matches 4s, he will get $400. 5s will get him $500 and 6s will get him $600. If he can match all three die pairs without hitting the two matching zonks, he will have $1,500 and the keys to a Dodge Dart SE worth $20,530! Michael picks 5 and hits the first ZONK. Michael passes on $300. He picks 2 and it's a 4. He picks 6 and it's 6. 4 is a 5. Michael picks 7 and it's the 2nd ZONK. He gets $100 for being a good production assistant(his real job - as he got peanut butter, a ball and jacks, and a furry monkey(a trader dressed as a monkey)

We need FOUR PEOPLE and they are Donna the Monkey(from last deal), Victor the Lifeguard, Lori as Thing 1, and Erin the Sailor. We have FOUR ENVELOPES. One has the #1, one has #2, one has #3 and one says ACTION. If the trader gets ACTION, they can take part in ANY deal he/she chooses. After distribution, we find out that Victor is 1, Lori is 2, Erin is 3 and Donna has the ACTION CARD. Victor can take Curtain 2 or $1,000? He takes the cash and Donna waits. He passes on a living room with hi-fi system, Ipod Touch and $500 Itunes GC worth $5,455. Lori can take $800 or the small box. Donna waits and Lori takes the small box and wins FUR PLATES(ZONK)! Erin has Curtain 3 or $1,200. Donna has to play. Erin takes the cash and Donna takes the curtain. Donna wins a game room with pool table and 55" 4K HDTV with easel TV stand along with $1,000 in cash! That deal is worth $7,740!

Steven in the big green suit gets "The Secret Life of Jonathan Mangum" from the LMAD Book Club. It has a mystery cash bookmark. Will he keep the book or take Curtain 1? He takes Curtain 1 and passes on $345 in cash! Steven is going to the DR for 4N at the Embassy Suites Hilton in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic worth $5,824! Irish the Emoji gets a mind reading clue about the Big Box. The clue(from Wayne's mind): I HOPE THE TRADER HAS THE APPROPRIATE LICENSE TO USE THE BIG BOX PRIZE. Irish can take the Big Box or $500...$1,000...$1,500...she takes the cash! Irish passes on a WIND UP CAR(ZONK!)

Amanda the purple Crayon is playing 0 to 80. She must get her car up to 80mph in 4 token picks or less. If she does that, Amanda will drive off in a Honda Civic LX Sedan worth $20,275! Her first pick is 10mph. Amanda passes on $500 to pick 30mph! She has 40mph and passes on $1,000 to pick 20 mph! She has 60 mph! Amanda passes on $2,000 to pick for the last time...she picks...0 MPH! She is out!

Last deal involves Tyler in the onesie. Tyler can win $5,000 if he THINKS BIG. He must find an answer that falls between 10 and 15 from the following 4 facts: IN INCHES, THE HEIGHT OF A REGULATION BOWLING PIN; NUMBER OF LEVELS FOUND IN THE WHITE HOUSE; IN DOLLARS, THE RETAIL PRICE OF THE ORIGINAL BARBIE SOLD IN 1959 and TOTAL WEEKS ROBIN THICKE'S "BLURRED LINES" WAS #1 ON BILLBOARD'S HOT 100 CHART. If Tyler does that, he wins $5,000 in cash! He picks the pin. Wayne offers a sure thing which is a BBQ Package with Grill, cooler, camping grill and $500 from Omaha Steaks worth $2,779! He stays with his guess. We find out that his guess...WAS RIGHT! He wins $5,000 because a regulation bowling pin is 15" tall! He could have also won if he picked BLURRED LINES as it spent 12 weeks at the top of the Billboard charts! The White House only has 6 levels and a Barbie cost only $3 in 1959!

Who goes for a shot at $25,115? It's Donna the back rubbing monkey with her game room!

She picks 3 after seeing 2 was the LMAD Vault. 2 was worth $2,179 in cash. Donna wins a Yamaha V1 WaveRunner worth $7,899! 1 was the Big Deal which was a $25,115 Jeep Cherokee Sport SUV!

CHALLENGE 1: ICE CREAM KONA. At the Kona Pool waterslide, One teammate has to go down the waterslide and memorize flavors of ice cream. They have to convey the order to their partner, who'll take a giant scoop and add it to the cone. Then swap spots and try again. Once you have all six flavors, add the whipped cream and the cherry on top. Once you give the pau and get the shaka, take a selfie with the cherry.

CHALLENGE 3: U-KEY TUNE-UP: At the Luau Pavilion, you have to put together a giant ukulele including the peg of your team's color. Go over and under the frets to untangle your team's string, then put it together with the peg hidden in the sound hole, wind up your string, and put the peg in place.

CHALLENGE 3: PARADISE VIP: There's a Hawaiian luau party at the grand staircase, but you're not getting past the bouncer unless you and your "chaperone" are dressed the part!

New week on Wheel and you can be one of 8 people every day this week that could win $1,000 in cash from Wheel and V8! It's Day 2 of "Always Great! Wheel and V8" week!

The $1,000 Tossup is PEOPLE. John misses and Christina Androtti from Colt, CA solve FAMILY FARMERS. She loves Bingo, has 4 children, and is an esthestician! John Capogna from Merrick, NY is a newlywed and is in financial services. He is a 15 handicap in golf. Heather Weemer is a speech language pathologist and is a medical writer along with being a Jazzercise instructor. She has 3 children and is married.

The $2,000 Tossup is PHRASE. Heather has $2,000 with I'M AN OPTIMIST. We add $7,500 in cash from V8 to the wheel! She starts WHAT ARE YOU DOING? but misses a vowel. Christina calls the N on the Board. John misses. Heather solves IMPROVING MY FLEXIBILITY for $3,950. She has $5,950!

Christina starts the Eggland's Best Mystery Round which is SAME LETTER. She Bankrupts. John picks up the $7,500 Cash with 2 $500 T's. John hits 6 $900 Same Letter S's and we add the $1,000 Same Letter Bonus as well to his total! John loses $7,150 in cash plus the bonus prize on a painfully harsh Bankrupt. Heather misses. Christina hits Lose a Turn. John picks up the 1/2 Car with a $500 P and solves STARTERS SOUPS & SALADS for $1,400.

John also starts the Express Wedge/Prize Puzzle round which is LIVING THINGS. He misses a vowel. Heather picks up the MDW with 2 R's. She hits a $1,000 Express Wedge B and hops on. We start with 2 $1,000 L's, 2 $1,000 F's, a $1,000 N's, a $1,000 G and reads FLUTTERING BUTTERFLIES for $9,050, the MDW and a trip to Costa Rica at the Playa Cativo Lodge worth $9,700! Heather has $24,700 in cash and prizes along with the MDW!

The $3,000 Tossup is THING. Heather has $27,700 with A HINT OF LIME. We go right into SHOW BIZ and a FINAL SPIN worth $1,600 a letter. John adds $6,400 to his total with HOLLYWOOD STUNTWOMAN. He leaves with $7,800. Christina leaves with $1,000 and Heather is going to the bonus round with $27,700 in cash and prizes including her trip to Costa Rica. She is also the 10th person this season to bring the MDW to the bonus round!

The pre-bonus round total is $36,500. For the 10th time this season, we remove the $100,000 wedge and replace it with a $1,000,000 one. If Heather lands on it and correctly solves the puzzle, she will be the 4th person to win the million dollars. We haven't had one since Sarah
Manchester - will it happen tonight?

She lands on the E in AMERICA'S. Her category is THINGS. With the RSTLNE and her choices of B P H I we have:

_ _ _ _ L I N _
_ _ _ _ / L _ _ _ S

She couldn't use her DAZZLING GOOD LOOKS to solve the puzzle - did she lose the $1,000,000? NOPE. She lost $45,000 but leaves with $27,700 in cash and prizes including her trip to Costa Rica! Where was the $1M Wedge? It was under the I in SPIN.

Now, take DAZZLING GOOD LOOKS to to win one of 40 $1,000 checks!

NBC: 8p/7c
Host: Chris Hardwick

Facebookbird, new, square, twitter iconInstagram
  Up net to take on the Wall are Jerrod & Shantell, high-school sweethearts from Denver. Jerrod is a police officer who helped birth his child on the road. In the middle of a snowstorm.

1) When Twinkies were first introduced to the market, they had which flavor cream filling: banana or vanilla? They lock in vanilla... and miss out on $30,100.
2) Which sign on the astrological zodiac is represented by a ram: Aries or Capricorn? They go with Aries for.. $21.
3) Which Ivy League university has produced the most US presidents: Yale or Harvard? They go with Yale for $40,010... but it was Harvard.
4) Initially trying to raise ten dollars, Zach Danger Brown collected more than $55,000 after launching a Kickstarter project on July 3, 2014 to help him make what: watermelon holder or potato salad? They go with potato salad... for $40,000.
5) Which of these characters says "Some people are worth melting for..." in the 2013 film "Frozen": Anna or Olaf? They go with Olaf for $35,001. So no matter what happens, they're through to the next round. Correct: Olaf! So they have a bank of $75,001, which they can keep or lose tonight.

SHANTELL is going behind the Wall while Jerrod takes the Wall on head-on.

- First two balls are green. Last two are red. The three in between will depend on how Shantell does with the questions.

SLOTS: $100,000 + $100 = $100,100
GRAND TOTAL: $175,101

BALL 3 (6): East Room, Blue Room, or Green Room: which room inside the White House is the traditional home to the official White House Christmas tree? Shantell goes with the Green Room.... but it was Blue, and now here comes the red... EVERYTHING.
DOUBLE UP BALL 4 (7): Happy, Impressed, or Amused: McKayla Maroney won an individual silver medal for gymnastics in the 2012 Olympics while she had a broken toe. The Tumblr account that started the meme featuring her scowling, however, described her as "Not..." what? She went with impressed... and this is going to be an impressive drop, putting the couple back on the board with... $50,001.
TRIPLE UP BALL 5 (6): Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Kevin Spacey: During the 2014 Academy Awards, host Ellen DeGeneres arranged a famous Oscar selfie. Which of these actors actually held the phone and took the picture? She goes with Bradley Cooper... and she's going to rocket another... $100,020 for a total of $150,021

BALLS 6 & 7: RED
SLOTS: -$10 + -$1 = -$11
GRAND TOTAL: $150,010

FINAL ROUND: We're gonna DOUBLE the guaranteed balls! The million is in play.

BALLS 1, 2, 3, 4: GREEN
SLOTS: $100 + $1 MILLION + $300,000 + $1 = $1,300,101
GRAND TOTAL: $1,450,111

BALL 5 (2): His brother Bobby, his wife Sue Ellen, his sister-in-law Kristin, or his business rival Cliff: watched by more than 80 million people, in the 1980 "Dallas" cliffhanger reveal, who shot JR? This is trivia 101. It's Kristin. Does Shantell know that? NO. She says Sue Ellen, and we're about to shoot off... $100,000 ($1,350,111).
BALL 6 (3): Rooks, bishops, knights, or pawns: at the start of a standard game of chess, which pieces occupy each of the four corners of the board? Shantell... doesn't play chess. She says knights, but it was rooks. And they just cost them another $100,000 ($1,250,111).

(C-Note: did we mention that Chris is a former chess champion?)

BALL 7 (4): Kellogg Company, Kmart, Kraft Foods, or Krispy Kreme Doughnuts: which company currently trades on the New York Stock Exchange with the symbol K? Shantell goes with Kellogg's... K-E-Double L-O-Double GOOD! This ball is worth... $400,000 for a final total of $1,650,111.

Before the reds go dropping, Shantell is given an out in the form of a contract worth the original $75,001 PLUS $20,000 for every correct answer (three) for a total of $135,001. If she signs on the line, that's their money. If she tears up the contract, they get whatever is left on the Wall after the reds fall.

BALLS 8, 9, 10, 11: RED
SLOTS: -$500,000 + -$100 + -$100,000 + -$100,000 = -$700,100
FINAL TOTAL: $950,011

So will they take a ton of money ($135,001) or a CRAP ton of money ($950,011)? Shantell decides to TAKE THE CONTRACT...

... and the money. So they take away $135,001 guaranteed.
