It's almost time for the Priceless
Summer, so we have a summer beach party!
First up, Martha Hayes, Chadwitz Spearman, Voncia Mitchell, and
Sean Daley bid on an audio system with USB drive, mic & beach
gear. The $1219 package goes to Sean, who's hoping to add a set of
scuba gear, GoPros with accessories, a VR camera package, and a
trip to Antigua (6n @ St. James Club & Villas) in Cliffsurfers.
First up, a travel pillow for $25? No, it's $24. Next, is a water
bottle $18? No, it's $35, and we have $8 to play with on a hair

Martha wins a $1489 set of sunglasses, binoculars & volleyball
set. She can play with a $3590 scooter, a $3050 set of Coach
accessories, and a $1500 rowing machine if she can pick the One
Sarong Price. She goes with the scooter... $2499 is a win!
James Wyshywaniuk goes down and up thanks to a $749 iPhone 7. Can
he make the right call for a Mazda Miata MX-5 in Lucky Seven? He
has $3 in hand with $27,86_ on the board. He goes with $5... 3 is
good enough to win! He also wins $1000 on the Big Wheel.
Meanwhile, Voncia gets a $1310 tiki bar with margarita maker &
accessories. Will she deck out her paradise with $16,000? Let's go

Goldfish snack crackers for $1.29? YES. Kauai coffee for $7.69?
YES! She stops at $4000. Mariani fruit for $2.49? Nope. Good move.

America's Got Talent
by Chico Alexander, Jason Block & Gordon Pepper
Host: Tyra Banks with Mel B, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum & Howie
Three Golden Buzzers have been awarded
so far - Howie's, Simon's, and Mel B's. Heidi and Tyra have yet to
chime in. Let's see if they do this week.
First on the X are Greater Works (all over), a 44-voice gospel
choir from all walks of life and all over the country who rehearse
online. They kick off the show with "This Little Light of Mine".
The energy is definitely there, but the harmonies need a bit of
polish. Still, the entire panel sends them through.
Jay Jay Phillips (25; Cleveland; fiberglass factory worker) is
getting over a rocky break-up the only way he can... with a
keyboard set to "whammy guitar". He lip syncs his way through the
rock classic "I Hate Myself For Loving You" (C-Note: for a long
while, this song was the basis for SNF's theme, "Waiting All Day
for Sunday Night"). Heidi ... hates it. The other judges overrule
her. So there... AMBER.
A montage of American dreamers from all around the world ends with
Light Balance Dance Group (Ukraine, @Light_Balance), this year's
custom-made digital dance/light masterpiece. The team needs
cleaner moves, but they are creative, they blow the crowd away,
and they prompt Tyra to come out of the wings and onto the panel
to do... THIS! GOLDEN BUZZER! LIGHT BALANCE IS THROUGH TO LIVE
After a bland milquetoast singer, we get to Anthony Penoso (58;
Jacksonville; attorney) who, with an original song called "Young
Enough" about his wife - who is 25 years his junior, has a dream
of being #1, going triple platinum, winning a Grammy, and going to
the Hall in Cleveland. Those dreams... are put on hold after the
judges X him out.
Just Jerk Crew (South Korea, teachers) are dancers who perform
maybe one more show because men of a certain age have to serve in
the South Korean military for 2 years. They're taking their
shot... and it's almost immaculate. Their swan song is delayed for
Celine Tam (9) was named after Celine Dion, is the child of big
Celine Dion fans, and wants to sing LIKE Celine Dion. Her choice
is "My Heart Will Go On", obviously.... and she slays it for a
9-year-old. The tone is all over the place, really, but the judges
are on their feet, and she's through. Interestingly enough, Simon
had her pegged from jump street.
(FUN FACT: Her sister's name? Dion)
Callum and Kevin, aka Men with Pans (chefs), a comic duo that
performs outfitted with two strategically placed saute pans... and
little else. Simon and Mel B were not having it. Heidi and Howie,
for some reason, were, and it takes some prodding from Heidi to
get Mel to take her X back. Hey, all you need are three yeses.
The Godfathers are an acrobat strongman group we only see so much
of before they're sent through. Robert Nash (Robert De Niro
lookalike) is an impersonator who does piss-poor renditions of
Jack Nicholson, John Travola, and Christopher Walken before he's
sent "Walken". Really, you cut half of the Godfathers for that?
Seriously, his intro is the best part of his act.
Tom London (25), a British magician who merges magic with
technology. Using random numbers from the audience (whose phones
magically generate red, white, and blue flickers), info from the
judges' lives, a white board, and a marker, he predicts the number
73,928,547 from Simon's #1 hits, Mel's album sales, the year Heidi
started modeling, and Howie & Tyra's guesses. The number was
predestined before his audition! It's enough for a unanimous yes.
For the record: Simon had 47 #1 artists, Mel sold 85 million,
Heidi was a model from 1992, and Howie was married to his high
school sweetheart for 37 years.
After sad clowns that piss Simon off, we get Bello Nock (47;
Sarasota, FL), a comic daredevil you may have seen in filler
pieces from the previous three episodes. His act: balancing on a
swaypole with ZERO support. Simon only makes it unanimous if Bello
promises to shoot himself out of a cannon over a helicopter. FOR
We end with a Father's Day piece with two acts: Darcy Callus
(Australia), singing his own take on "God Only Knows" for his
father, and Evie Clair (13), who sings to her father who was
diagnosed wtih stage 4 colon cancer. She sings "Arms" by Christina
Perri, and that, coupled with the cute face and sob story, sends
her flying to the next round along with Darcy.
More ... stuff... next week.

BEAT THE BEAST: Computer Bugs. One
teammate must retrieve a passcode on a computer screen while
holding something creepy - either a snake or a scorpion - in their
mouths. Once the correct passcode has been entered, the teammates
swapped roles until all three codes were entered on all three
screens (at which point BOTH would have to hold something in their
mouths). Fastest time gets a Fearvantage in the next round. Post
the slowest time? Thanks for playing, exit's that way.
- Chris/Amanda - DQ (Amanda quits). But just because she quit
doesn't mean the rest of the team gets off easy. In fact, if you
do it in the fastest time, you will get a $1000 bonus.
- Daniel/Aqel: 4'33"
- Jennie/Hanna: 6'03"
- Brynne/Jerry: 4'50"
BONUS/FEARVANTAGE: Daniel & Aqel
FACE YOUR FEAR: Heads Up. All of the contestants are afraid of
drowning. Both teammates - with their heads in a box - have to
drink for their lives while giving up their cell phones to be
placed in the tank with them as the water comes down (about eye
level). The teams that hold on the longest without drowning or
checking their Snapchat move on. As a Fearvantage, Daniel & Aqel
got to keep their phones.
- Jennie/Hanna: 3'24"
- Daniel/Aqel: 3'18" (advances)
- Brynne/Jerry: 3'27"
ELIMINATED: Brynne & Jerry
THE FINAL FEAR: Ramped Up. On a moving fully-loaded car carrier,
you & your partner will have to look for eight letters, six of
which will form a code that will unlock the ignition on one of the
cars. You'll then have to drive the car to the finish line.
Fastest time wins. You want to do this as fast as possible,
because the sooner you get the code in, the shorter your drive to
- Daniel/Aqel: 2'05"
- Jennie/Hanna: 1'35" by realizing you don't have to collect ALL
of the letters, only the ones that spell the code. That's a

PhD student in linguistics
quality assurance auditor
JEOPARDY! ROUND: We're Giving You a
Commisison, Good Sources of Calcium, Authors' Initials, 10-Letter
Verbs, The Game Is Rigged, Return to the Movies.
Peter starts with $200 10-Letter Verbs, finding the Daily Double
under $600 Authors' Initials. He's pulling the trigger for all the
marbles on this: he liked to rime: STC. "Who is Samuel Taylor
Coleridge?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $4000! He ends up with another
doubler, $8000 to $5200 for Chris. Melissa, on $4400, gets the
board to start...
DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Blowin' in the Wind, Tangled Up in Blue; It's
Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding); Things Have Changed, Forever
"Young", Bob Dylan
... with $400 Blowin' in the Wind, where Peter finds the first
Daily Double under $1200. He bets $4400 on this: speeding up
evaporation, winds are strong in many deserts, like this one
that's home to most Joshua trees. "What is the Mojave Desert?"
RIGHT for $13,200. Chris finds the other under $800 Forever
"Young". He goes all-in on this: the seeds of this disruptive
group date back to 1889 with members of the Imperial Medical
Academy of Istanbul. "Who are the Young Turks?" That... would be
right, but he blanks, so he's blanked. Peter ends up with $21,600.
With Melissa on $9600 to Chris' $800, the game is the champ's to
FINAL JEOPARDY in "Shakespeare Titles": the verse from
the Sermon on the Mount following "Judge not, that ye be not
judged" inspired this Bard comedy title. Correct response: what is
"Measure for Measure"?
Chris is right, but Peter wins $19,201 more for a three-day tally
