  Michael Rankins (Newark, CA) goes into this one with $20,000 and 2 lifelines.

Which of the following lists the top 3 denominations of U.S. paper currency in decreasing order of the number of bills currently in circulation?
A: $1, $20, $5
B: $1, $100, $20
C: $20, $1, $100
D: $100, $1, $5

Michael doesn't think that there's enough $100s out there for it to be B or D. He calls on his friend, Muffy, and she's thinking A. He decides to go with that... but it's B! That means he leaves with $5,000.

Brian Henegar (La Follette, TN)
He is a podcaster on SpectrumOne, and he's been at TCONA (Trivia Championships of North America).
(+1): His sister, Katie

He easily gets to $5,000, then asks the audience and uses the 50:50 at $20,000. Soon enough, he faces this...

If you're enjoying a Duke Ellington song while driving one of the best-selling minivans of all time, you're listening to what?
A: "Caravan" in a Dodge Grand Caravan
B: "Town & Country" in a Chrysler Town & Country
C: "Sienna" in a Toyota Sienna
D: "Odyssey" in a Honda Odyssey

Brian focuses on figuring out which song is from Duke Ellington. He calls on Katie, but she hasn't heard of those songs. Brian is thinking B, but he's not certain enough, so he walks with $30,000! As for the answer, it's actually A!

While you were busy looking for a joke to go along with the Grammy nominations... Beyonce... we were looking to nominate three people to be our at-home players for Tag Team Tuesday. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #holidayPickUpLines. Mike leads with 1000 to Sam's 900. Janelle has 700.

In act 2, we get S***eo Lame Butt Scenes (non-interactive cut scenes) and tonight's Live Challenge, Halo? Callvention allows players to ask developers how a game is developed. What would you hear if you made this call? Janelle gets the 1000 from this: "What's up, it's me the creator of Tetris. Looks like I've got a tight deep hole. The only thing that'll fill it is your long straight piece, stud."

Speeding it up with To Hashtag and To Hold. This show divorces Sam.

FTW: Kid Rock just released a line of pro-Trump merch. Come up with your own. The winner: "I like my vaginas like I like my eagles, bald." And Janelle has been straight FIRE today!

Tomorrow's funny makes for the game tomorrow night. Continue the game online @midnight.

  Tim is playing for a hat trick tonight...
Tim Aten

Vermilion, OH
Alison Carey
Cleveland Heights, OH
Anuj Patel
San Francisco

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Sports Round Numbers, That's Just Nuts!, A Barrage of Books, Mining for "Ore", Structures, Clues Across America

Tim starts with $200 Mining for "Ore". At the TV timeout, we wrap up our whip-around of affiliate-provided clues with Tim at $4600 and Anuj at $2400. Alison is still stuck on the mark.

Alison finds the Daily Double under $800 A Barrage of Books. She bets all of her $2000 on this: the original title of the book that became "Schindler's List" was "Schindler's" this biblical item of refuse. "What is ark?" That... would've doubled the score. However, Alison blanks and blanks out. She ends the round with -$1000. With Tim in the lead at $5200 to Anuj's $4600, Alison has control to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Out of Africa, Such Colorful Language!, Scientist, Every Move You Make, Every Claim You Stake, I'll Be Watching You

... with $400 Out of Africa. Anuj finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Every Move You Make. He bets $2000 on this: the "win-stay, lose-shift" strategy is something to consider in this game where there are only 3 options. "What is Risk?" No, it was, believe it or not, rock, paper, scissors. He drops to $8200. With less than a minute, Anuj also finds the Daily Double under $1200 Every Claim You Stake. He bets $2000 again on this: on April 22, 1889 a bugle for a land run sounded in the new Oklahoma Territory; those who entered early were dubbed this. "What are Sooners?" RIGHT for $10,200! He ends up with $11,000 to Tim's $8800. Alison has $4200.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Authors": asked if he read novels, philosopher Gilbert Ryle said, "Yes, all six, every year", referring to this British author. Correct response: who was Jane Austen?

Alison is right, but... thanks to some savvy wagering, Tim ekes out a win with $8500, giving him $56,300 for three! His luck continues to hold, but for how long?

Yesterday started slow, but ended with a bang. Can we get all-bang today with Ada Keown, Katie Mandalia, Christopher Potorak, and Barbara Wilson bidding on a pop-a-shot arcade basketball & dart combination? The $800 package goes to Ada, who can punch her way to $25,000 on the Punch-a-Bunch board. She gets three from a $33 curling iron, an $80 water pick, and a $60 air station. First hit... $1000. She trades that in for $500... only to end up with $250.

Katie wins a 1702 pair of chairs with side table & Kindle. She'll add a hot tub and a ceramic grill/smoker with tools in Pushover.

9 6 3 8 5 2 5 7 0

She pushes to $6385... but that was too far. It was $8525.

Barbara wins a $780 HD camcorder with digital camera (off by only $5!), but can she take a 2017 Toyota Prius C Persona Series in Money Game?

67  45  70
22  24  59
96  82  23

Middle number is 4. 24... money. 23... money. 22 is the front. 67... money. Last pick is 59, and she wins... 173 money. The car was $22,482.

Ada beats Barbara, 45-25 in a Spinoff. Meanwhile, Mark Horvath goes down and up thanks to a $590 set of small electrics. He'll... uh oh, lights and klaxons mean it's Danger Price for a dishwasher, a treadclimber, an Acer PC, and a set of Coach purses. The Danger Price: $1100. The PC.. $750. The purses... $2560. The exerciser.. $3299!

Christopher gets off the schneid with a $1264 pair of watches and a chance at a VW Beetle in Stack the Deck...

1 3 4 5 7 8 9

He gets two helps and this board: $__,43_. He goes for $17,438. ... he needed that third, because it was $19,438.

Chelsea Thompson ends up with a $1031 backpacking package. She will take it to Vancouver (6n @ Vancouver Sheraton Wall Centre) if she bests Balance Game. The bags: $720, $2000, $3000, and $5000. She goes with $7720...too heavy. It was $5720. She will meet Ada in the Showcase, though.

First up, an Xbox One package with 4K 3DTV, a Triumph Bonneville T120, and a trip to Germany (6n @ Gorki Apartments). Top winner Ada passes, and Chelsea bids $21,000. Ada gets inflatable paddleboards, a trip to Santa Cruz (6n @ Hotel  Paradox), and a 2017 Mini Cooper convertible! She bids $31,000. Actual price: $34,917, a difference of $3917. Actual price of Chelsea's Showcase... $23,456 to win with a difference of $2456! Not quite the flourish of yesterday, but it's $24,487 that Chelsea didn't have before 11a/10a central & mountain time!
