While you were getting attacked by a bat while wailing in the great outdoors on your acoustic... we were Rapidly Refreshing on how people can't have nice things thanks to people complaining about the U2 album on their iPhones. Today's #HashtagWars: #HipsterComicBooks. Because we have a hipster and a comic book guy on the panel. Jen leads with 1000 to Kevin's 600 & Justin's 500.

In act 2, it's time for... EBAY PRICE IS RIGHT! Tonight's Live Challenge: I Wanna Text You Up. Chris is single now... awww... and he got set up via text. Comics, write the text that Chris SHOULD'VE written instead of "I'm playing Dungeons & Dragons". After three really good answers, Jen gets the big points from "I'm playing with my 'D' which I want to put in your 'zone'. And don't worry, the only 'role playing' I do is in the bedroom."

Next, Smoking Polls. Ironically, Kevin, who's never rolled a day in his life, is out.

FTW: is strengthening Christian marriage by selling... sex toys. Write a review. The winner: "I used to hate touching my wife's dirty canal of original sin, but thanks to the "Jesus He Is Risen" strap-on I can pleasure my wife, who is a whore because she was born a woman, without casting sin upon myself. And as was written since the beginning of the show, JEN KIRKMAN WINS THE INTERNET!

Remember, today's funny becomes tomorrow's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.

The Holidays took another win, after a sweep on the last survey, naming something a hardcore football fan wears to the stadium on game day, which were jersey/team color, face/body paint, hat/cheesehead and foam hand/finger.

Frank & Glorina will try to see if they can do it again in Fast Money. Frank thought November was among the months of baseball season, the other got him 106. Glorina had to think twice on answers taken, including where she thought of I'll never forget my first....birthday and besides balls, a juggler juggling shoes. They finish with a two-day total of $20,720.

Fast Money #1 answers
- Complete this phrase: "I'll never foreget my first _______." Kiss (Frank)
- A month of baseball season: June (Glorina)
- Something at the office a secretary turns on and off: Computer
- How many hot dogs could you eat in one minute?: 1 (can you honestly eat more than that in a minute?)
- Besides balls, something a juggler might juggle: Pins/Clubs (Frank)

In the nightcap, we have two new families today, the Thomas family and the Brown family of all guys. Triple Round: what would you do someone insulted you? The Thomas family sweep walk away/ignore, insult back/yell, fight/hit them, and forgive/pray for for the win.

Lindsey & Bethany will play Fast Money. Lindsey did well, but had a light answer at the end, but scored 99. Bethany didn't do well with her answers though, even though they all scored points. They finish with a total of $745.

  New game, new champ, but how long can Elizabeth last?
Elizabeth Williams
Washington, DC
business research librarian
Bill Cossen
orig. Lexington, SC
PhD candidate in history
Tessa Fleming
Mission Viejo, CA
high school history teacher

Elizabeth gets us going with $200 Ghostbusters (celebrating the 30th anniversary and the commemorative Blu-Ray release today). At the TV timeout, the champ ties Bill with $1600 to Tessa's $1000.

Bill finds the Daily Double under $800 Plastic Surgery. After a score correction leaving him with $2800, Bill wagers $1000 on this: this alliterative procedure is also called abdominoplasty. "What is a tummy tuck?" Good for $3800! He goes up to $5800 to $3200 at the half. Tessa has $800 and the first go in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Pop Music. Elizabeth finds the first Daily Double under $1200 Word Origins. She goes for it on this: it was coined by George Orwell & means the capacity to accept 2 contradictory ideas at the same time. "What is doublespeak?" No, it was "doublethink", leaving her with zero. She tries again with the last clue, $2000 African History, but it's of little consequence. She bets $1000 on this: this capital of South Africa's Northern Cape was founded after an 1871 diamond find; today it's a name for baby girls. She blanks on Kimberley, leaving her with $1400 to $2800 for Tessa. With $15,000, the game is Bill's to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "European Capitals": at 200 miles, this capital of just over a million people is the continental capital closest to London. Correct response: what is Brussels?

The ladies get this easily, but again, it's of little consequence. Bill wins in a walk with $15,000. Elizabeth leaves with $13,800.

  Bryan McMullin (Babylon, NY) begins the show today with $65,600 in his bank. He has no lifelines left, but he is moving on to Classic Millionaire!

Reflecting on his boyhood town, Harry Houdini reportedly said, "The greatest escape I ever made was when I left" where?
A: Terre Haute, Indiana
B: Corning, Iowa
C: Appleton, Wisconsin
D: Steubenville, Ohio

For no apparent reason, Bryan's first thought was Buffalo, New York. Since that's not an option, and since nothing else is jumping out at him, he decides to walk. The answer is C, and he leaves with $65,600!

Joseph Amato (Secaucus, NJ)
He eventually became a vegan after getting a dog 6 years ago. Now he wants to create a vegan restaurant.
(+1): His sister, Maria

He needs help from the audience on the 6th question, and he gets $500 from it. He jumps the 7th, which had $2,000. His sister is called on to help with the 8th, and thanks to her, $5,000 is added to his bank! That means he has $62,600 when this pops up...

Settling for "Snoopy" because his first choice was taken by another comic, Charles Schulz originally wanted his famous beagle to be called what?
A: Stumpy
B: Snelly
C: Sniffy
D: Slappy

Joseph doesn't immediately know this; he takes some time to consider the choices. He then says that if he had to guess, he'd say D. But he's not sure enough, so he walks with $31,300! As for the answer, it's C!

In the nightcap, Sherry Greenspan has $15,500 and two lifelines remaining. She burns one on a question about the Culper spy ring during... either the Revolutionary War (38%) or World War I (33%). She goes with the Revolutionary War... and she's got another $10,000 to build her bank to $53,500. She walks away after burning her Plus One on this:

Serving for nearly 60 years, which of the following held on to his job the longest
A: Longest-serving British Prime Minister
B: Longest-serving US Congressman
C: Longest-ruling Russian czar
D: Longest-presiding Supreme Court Justice

The correct answer: ... B. But she has $26,750.

And we have Dorothy Shestak from Brooklyn taking the stage now. She uses all of her lifelines... but it took two on this one to end it.

Showing typical Danish modesty, Carlsberg beer used to have a famous sign in downtown Copenhagen featuring what slogan?
A: Probably the best beer in town
B: It's really pretty good
C: Try some if you want
D: It's better than nothing

Her Plus One, BFF Hilary, said B. The audience says A (by one percent). She went with B... Why do you go against the audience? It was A! She leaves with $1000.

What was the winning price of the very first car Bob Barker gave away on "The Price Is Right", a 1972 Chevrolet Vega?
A: $2746
B: $5180
C: $8403
D: $11,473

Nick guesses on B... but it was A! He leaves with $1000.

Sherry Greenspan (NYC) takes $15,500 into tomorrow's show.
