While you were celebrating National Selfie Day by... well, taking a selfie, we were taking pictures of three fans for a Tag Team Tuesday. Tonight's #HashtagWars: because Taylor Swift is dating Tom Hiddleston, #ComicBookSongs. Eli leads with 1000 to 7000 for Steve and 600 for Spike.

Next up, Lock, Stock and Failure: Writing Edition (stock video: writing) and tonight's Live Challenge When You Wish Upon a Tsar. Vladimir Putin just gave a go-ahead for an amusement park called "The Magical World of Russia". Describe another attraction you would find there. Steve gets 1000 from: "In Russia, theme park rollercoaster ride YOU!"

Rounding third with Leakeasy, celebrating Edward Snowden's birthday. Spike's fail gets leaked.

FTW: Pepper the Robot is supposed to make people happy. Instead, Pepper flips people off. What appears on her video screen when she flips you off? Winner: "Hey Amber, I stuck this up Kanye's butthole. #fingerinthebootyassbot" Eli wins for @IFeelLikeTwit

Today, it's funny. Tomorrow it's the game. Continue the game online @midnight.

Jalen Rose
NBA star & ESPN basketball analyst
Betty White
America's Sweetheart

GAME 1: MADISON ROWLEY: he is currently the best in show at the World Moustache & Beard Championships in Portland. That usually means no s'mores or bubble gum. Small price to pay for having the best beard in the world.
- #1: Iliza, Jalen
- #2: Betty
- #3: NeNe
CORRECT: #2. Betty's the only one right! Kenneth James is a photographer at #1. And #3, Charlie Rowley... is Madison's father!

GAME 2: STEVE KING: this surfer survived a shark attack and made international headlines doing so.
- #1: NeNe, Iliza, Jalen
- #2:
- #3: Betty
CORRECT: #3. Betty has two! And we get to see his scar. Yeowch!

But BEFORE YOU GO, each of the imposters from Game 2 has an ADDITIONAL secret that the panel must discern. One of them is the most infamous shark in Super Bowl history... His name is Brian, but you and Katy Perry know him as "Left Shark".
- #1: NeNe, Jalen
- #2: Iliza, Betty
CORRECT: #1! #2 is Lee, and he's a personal trainer. Iliza is in danger of being privy to the Tweet A Lie.

GAME 3: KEVIN FARRELL: He has personally sold more than 1 million pieces of Tupperware, earning the title of top Tupperware salesman four years in a row... and he does it in drag.
- #1: NeNe, Iliza, Betty
- #2: Jalen
- #3:
CORRECT: #1. The ladies score. #2, Willem, is a motivational speaker. #3, Eva Lessman, is a realtor. And he's actually a woman.

GAME 4: SPANKY SPANGLER JR.: tonight, this stuntman will be falling out of a building. On fire. He and his father are professional daredevils.
- #1: NeNe, Jalen (danger zone)
- #2:
- #3: Iliza (danger zone), Betty
CORRECT: #1! #2 is Adam Dunnells, a personal trainer who's afraid of heights. #3... the central figure from game 3!

TWEET A LIE: Because Iliza has one correct vote, she MUST post this on her Twitter and she cannot deny it for 24 hours:
- @iliza: I think I would be a great dermatologist. If you've got a rash you're wondering about, let me see it #ThatLooksInfected

  It's battle of the BFFs time on Idiotest.
Stacy & Ashlyne
best friends
Christophe & Kyle
best friends

- Ladies: Touch the flat tire. They go with the spare on the roof of the van... which is lying flat for $40.
- Men: Where are the fish most likely to bite today? They go with the bait... for $140!
- Ladies: If you touch right, you're wrong. If you touch left, you're right. They touch left for $180 more, $220 total
- Men: Touch the sour cream. They pick the dairy cream with an expiry date of 2010. That's some very sour cream for the lead, $260 to $220.

- Stacy: Your flight is about to board! Which one will make the most noise? She guesses the plane for $300... GOOD!
- Kyle: These three photos were posted today on Instypix. Touch the oldest post. He goes with the triceratops... but it was the oldest POST.
- Ashlyne: Touch the two left hands. She does for $695 total!
- Christophe: Bottom of the ninth! Where does the ball have to go for the batter to get hit? He hits the hitter. And that's right for $560, but it's all the ladies, $695 to $560.

- $1000 (Ashlyne vs. Kyle): touch the hater (of AbigailAlishaTeresaYvonne). ... Now you see it. Ashlyne sees it for another $800 to widen their lead, $1495 to $560
- $2500 (Stacy vs. Christophe): logically, what should the black-haired robot's name be? Two lock-ins at $1100. Right: B-5000 (because of the black hair - B-1000 is blonde, R-3000 is redhead, G-2000 is green-haired). Both hit the right answer, so the ladies win, $2595 to $1660.

- There's ten grand on the line! Find the ten on this check.

Stacy hits "Pay to the Order of". Ashlyne hits "ton". But for the ten grand, you needed to hit the X, as in the Roman numeral for 10.

In the nightcap, couple Barry & Jane lead brothers Steven & Eddie $505 to $160.

- $1000 (Steven vs. Barry): Touch the lemonade stand that charges the most money. The little kid charges twenty five-cents... or a dollar. Steven's right for $310 to $505 for Barry.
- $2500 (Eddie vs. Jane): Who had the Miss Under Standing? Both lock in at $1700. Eddie is right with the gent who missed the trash under "standing". Jane... is also righ to win, $2205 to $2010.

- Okay... logically, which One doesn't belong: (pen) (live) (vert) (men) or (lose)?

She says (lose). Barry says (lose) as well. If you think about the () as an O, you'd think about open, olive, overt, omen... but no olose! THEY WIN THE $10,000!

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Take Me Out of the Ball Game, Organizations, Scientific & Medical Abbrev., Words with Friends, The Disaster of the Century, The 5 W's

Sally begins with $200 Scientific & Medical Abbrev., where Laurie finds the Daily Double under $800. She's going for it on this: abbreviated TM, it separates the outer ear from the middle ear. "What is the tympanic membrane?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2000! She ends up with $4800 to $5200 for Ben. Sally has $1000 and the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Famous Elephants, Memory, Countries with Short Coastlines, As Easy as C-D-E, Books & Authors, Big Screen Character Mashups.

... with $400 Big Screen Character Mashups. Ben finds the first Daily Double under $1200 Countries with Short Coastlines. He fronts $5000 on this: this principality has only about 2.5 miles of coast on the Mediterranean Sea. "What is Monaco?" That is right... but he said Malta to drop to $5400. Laurie gets the other under $800 Books & Authors. She tries for $2500 on this: Hemingway’s 1936 Esquire essay “On the Blue Water” formed the basis for this 1952 story. "What is 'The Old Man and the Sea'?" Good for $7700! She ends with $13,700 to $13,400 for Ben. Sally can spoil with $1800.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Beatles Songs": later a book title, the 2-word title of this 1968 song is a British name for a spiral slide seen at fairgrounds. Correct response: what is "Helter Skelter"?

Laurie has the right response and the win with $26,700. Sally leaves with $12,900.
