JEOPARDY! ROUND: A Book by Its Cover; Greek Letter, Please; What Tree Am I?, TV for Short, Fill in the Phrase, Christiane Amanpour

Alex starts with $200 TV for Short, finding the Daily Double under $800 What Tree Am I? He goes max on this: the Algonquin Native Americans made canoes from the bark of me, a fast-growing tree of the genus Betula. "What is birch?" RIGHT for $1600. He ends up with the lead on $10,000 to Jen's $4800. Greg has $2800 and the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: The Facebook of Job, People in Science, Before & After At The Mall, Crossowrd Clues "Y", Other Constitutions, The American Music Awards (airing tonight on ABC)

... with $400 The American Music Awards. Jen finds the first Daily Double under $1200 The Facebook of Job. She goes for $2500 on this: Job added a "surprised" GIF when he posted the Lord's info that Behemoth "can draw up" this river into its mouth. "What is the Jordan?" RIGHT for $12,500! She also finds the other under $2000 Other Constitutions, betting $4000 on this: this country: "Amharic shall be the working language of the federal government". "What is Armenia?" No, it was Ethiopia, dropping her to $8900. She ends up with that much to Greg's $6800. But with $18,800, it's Alex's game to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "World Leaders": he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize twice & the Literature Prize 7 times, winning for the latter in 1953. Correct response: who was Winston Churchill?

Alex is the only one to get it right to win another $18,881, giving him $39,679 for two.

Tuesday's trading starts off with a special episode. Our audience is full of pink because it is Breast Cancer Awareness month and our Breast Cancer Awareness Special! We have survivors, fighters and allies/supporters of the fight. We start with three people. They are April in the Big Pink Ribbon, Melanie the Pea Pod and Kimberly the Crazy Cat Lady. Every dealer will be making deals for each other. April gives Melanie the Red Box and Kimberly will pick a diamond dollar. Melanie wins a pair of diamond earrings from Shana Gulati worth $3,250! Kimberly picks Diamond Dollar 4 which is $1,400. Melanie gives Curtain 3 to April and Kimberly gets more cash. April wins a new bedroom from and a Compass Star Mattress worth $4,842. Kimberly picks Diamond Dollar 3 and adds $800 to her total. She has $2,200 in total and gives the green box to Melanie and April will add cash. Melanie adds a pair of designer watches from Gucci worth $3,140! Melanie has $6,390 in prizes. April adds Diamond Dollar 2 and it is $600. She has $5,442 in cash and prizes. Kimberly has $2,200 in cash(as stated before). Who keeps and who trades for the LMAD Mini-Curtain? No one trades for a trip to Cancun! It was a 4N stay at Finest Playa Mujeres(an Excellence Collection Hotel) worth $6,732!

Traci the Breast Cancer Fighter is playing for a Mazda 3 Sport worth $21,040! The game is GO FOR A SPIN. We have a wheel with cash spaces, zonk spaces and one car space. Traci can change up to three spaces from zonk to car. Here's how. We polled a recent studio audience and got their preference of the following pairs: PUPPY/KITTY, DRACULA/FRANKENSTEIN and PUSH UPS/PUSH POPS. For every answer Traci gets right, she will win $500 and a chance to change a spot from ZONK to car(up to three). Traci gets PUPPY but misses DRACULA and PUSH POPS. She has $500 and changes one more spot from zonk to car. Will Traci take that $500 or GO FOR A SPIN? She spins and wins...$300.

John the Basketball(repping his mom). We have a representation of the Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon - but it's done in Pink Jelly Beans. John can take $2/Jelly Bean or the Big Box. He takes the box and passes on $950 = $475 X 2 and wins an OJO Electric Scooter along with sneakers and a Moonlight Roller Way Roller Skating Party worth $3,360! We need a couple and they are Angelique/Jeffery have a small box and a tiny box. After a song battle they pick the small box. Jonathan had ZONK FANTASY FIGURES(ZONK)! The small box is a trip to BERLIN GERMANY for 5N and WOW Airfare worth $5,500!

Alexi the Medieval Lady and Leticia the Sushi are partners. They have to decide together. Will they take the LMAD Envelope(Spend it?) or Curtain 1? They take the envelope and pass on a beauty package with makeup chair, ottoman, and vanity mirror. We throw in Faby Nail Polish, Magisso Hanging Racks and Karuna Skin Care worth $3,018! Will they take the envelope or Curtain 3(DRIVE IT)? They take 3 and pass on a $2,500 Shopping Spree at Saks Fifth Avenue! Who keeps and who goes with Curtain 2? No one takes Curtain 2 and they pass on a trip to Puerto Rico at the Rincon Beach Resort worth $10,066! Who takes $1,000 not to take Curtain 3? Alexi takes the cash and Letitia wins a GIANT RUBBER DUCKY(ZONK!)

Rachel the Bobby Soxer, Debora the Church Lady and Carmel the Racecar Driver. They are playing a two part lottery deal. In round 1, we give out lottery tickets. One says $250, one says $100 and one says WIN. The WIN ticket will go on to play the 2nd half of the deal. After distribution of tickets, Debora is playing on because she gets the WIN ticket. Rachel sits down with $250 and Carmel sits down with $100. Now, Debora has 8 spots on the LMAD LOTTO Board. She will pick three spots. If Debora picks correctly, she will drive off in a Toyota Yaris iA worth $17,970! Match Wayne and she will win $5,000. Tiffany will give her $3,000. Jonathan will give her $14.30. Debora picks 3, 7 and 5. 3 is the CAR. 7 is Jonathan. Will she go for 5 or take the sure thing behind Curtain 3 - a suite of electronics including a 27" Imac, 12" Macbook, Ipad and Breobox Subscription worth $4,752? Debora takes the sure thing - and that was the right call as 5 would have given her $14.30! That was Jonathan. 2 had the CAR!

And we give EVERYONE in the audience a special Breobox which has been curated for Breast Cancer Awareness month and proceeds to go to Breast Cancer Research! Last deal of the day involves

Rayna the Breast Cancer Fairy. She has a Louis Vuitton Purse and whats inside or the LMAD Envelope. Rayna takes the purse and passes on the envelope which was a luxury wine getaway in Casa Robles, CA for 4N at the Allegretto Resort worth $3,900! Rayna adds $500 to the purse. With the Louis Bag it is worth $4,360!

Who keeps and who trades for a shot at $27,715?

Melanie trades her watches and earrings! She picks 1. 3 was a trip to Las Vegas! It was a stay at the D Las Vegas for 3N worth $5,336! 2 was a new Washer/Dryer from Whirlpool worth $3,837! That means Melanie wins the Big Deal and it is a $27,715 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SUV!

ROUND 1: Face My Phobia, Finger the Masters, History of Terrible.

Jason, the man with the biggest debt, goes first with Face My Phobia. Nobody gets the I Knew That question under "Finger the Masters" - What famous abstract expressionist was known for his drip paintings that now sell for $200 million? It was Jackson Pollock. So Jason ends up with $200. Amanda has $100. But Kenisha has $300!

ROUND 2: Amanda has $300, but with Kenish on $500 to Jason's $400, Amanda's out with $1000.

ROUND 3: CRUNCH OR PUNCH or FANBASE OR ALIEN RACE? The distractors: cartoon parents arguing or monkeys writing a novel.
- Jason gets FANBASE (music artist's fan club) or ALIEN RACE (sci-fi alien race), whilst listening to monkeys writing a novel. He gets 10 for $2000, $2400 total.
- Kenisha is left with CRUNCH (cereal mascot) or PUNCH (nickname for a boxer), whilst listening to cartoon parents arguing. She gets 9 for $1800, $2300 total.

FINAL ROUND: these items all pertain to....

Kenisha pulls it out to win, $3300 to $2800.

(DON'T) KNOW YOUR MAJOR: Kenisha wants to KNOW her major, getting only three for 15% of her debt, $4258, giving her a grand total today of $7558.

OFFICE HOUSE: Cassie ($70,877) is in need of some Easy Money. She gets three right for the full time in the money fountain, where she grabs... $460.

Going into the final full night of Blinds...

TEAM ADAM: Tyke James, Radha, DeAndre Nico, Steve Memmolo, Anthony Arya, Reagan Strange, Foushee, Natalie Brady, Jarred Matthew

*TEAM KELSEA: Ayanna Joni, Ele Ivory, Lynnea Moorer, Wyatt Rivers, Sam Robbins

Blake and Jennifer need two more artists, while Adam & Kelly need three.

Caeland Garner (31; Coleridge, NC) knows Red Marlow from season 13, and he's putting a country spin on King Harvest's "Dancing in the Moonlight"... and Blake and Jennifer both hit their buttons. Caeland ultimately picks... BLAKE.

Madison Cain (24; Sonoma, CA) comes from a musical pedigree - her father is Jonathan Cain, the keyboardist for Journey. Will she not stop believin' with "You Oughta Know" by Alanis Morissette? She doesn't get a turn, which surprises the coaches, the audience, the writer of this recap... and Kelsea, who gets the final spot on the Comeback Stage.

Lela (15; Miami) comes from a Colombian family. She'll go Cuban for this performance of Camila Cabello's "Havana". Kelly loves the song choice and wants to hear more of her. Jennifer joins at the last second. But ultimately, Jennifer loves that she's willing to go bilingual, so Lela picks JENNIFER!

Cody Ray Raymond (26; Seattle) is a street musician, a veteran, a former resident of the North Pole, and a martial arts expert. He's trying just one of those routes with Albert King's "Born Under a Bad Sign". Kelly's the first to go for him, followed by Jennifer...again. This time, it's Kelly with the last laugh.

Jake Wells (23; Kansas City, MO) may have been brought up in gospel, but he's going the secular route with "When The Stars Go Blue" by Ryan Adams. Kelly loves the song... but ADAM turns his chair.

Abby Cates (17; Cincinnati) touts an experience working as a character actress at children's parties before having broken her back. She channels that into Alessia Cara's "Scars to Your Beautiful." KELLY immediately hits... and no one else does.

Last up tonight is Funsho (28; Los Angeles), whose family emigrated from Nigeria. He's tripping on "Finesse" by Bruno Mars... and all four coaches make the turn! ... Except for Blake, who is roundly called "an idiot". Funsho goes with... ADAM!

Going into next week....

TEAM ADAM: Tyke James, Radha, DeAndre Nico, Steve Memmolo, Anthony Arya, Reagan Strange, Foushee, Natalie Brady, Jarred Matthew, Jake Wells, Funsho
TEAM KELLY: Sarah Grace, Mikele Buck, Claire deJean, Chevel Shepherd, Delaney Silvernell, Kymberli Joye, SandyRedd, OneUp, Erika Zade, Cody Ray Raymond, Abby Cates

TEAM BLAKE: Mercedes Ferreira-Dias, Kameron Marlowe, Keith Paluso, Michael Lee, Dave Fenley, Rachel Messer, Chris Kroeze, Joey Green, Kayley Hill, Kirk Jay, Caeland Garner
*TEAM KELSEA: Ayanna Joni, Ele Ivory, Lynnea Moorer, Wyatt Rivers, Sam Robbins, Madison Cain

Each main coach has ONE slot to fill.

Next week, CeeLo Green returns to the Voice along with Thomas Rhett, Halsey, and Keith Urban as Blinds end and Battles begin.

Brett Lazer (Brooklyn, NY) has $50,000 to start this episode.  He's out of lifelines, but he could still win more money with this...

What does the "P.F." stand for in the name of the popular restaurant chain P.F. Chang's?
A: Pei Fu
B: Pan-Asian Food
C: Paul Fleming
D: Pan-to-Fork

Brett has never been to one of those restaurants, but he does believe that it serves Asian food.  He's initially thinking A or C.  After thinking about it, though, he starts considering B.  It's a free guess, so he says B... but it's C!  Well, at least he has $50,000!

Trent Edwards (San Francisco, CA) is up next.  He sweeps the first 5, then turns to the audience at $7,000.  Soon enough, he sees this...

According to the 2018 World Almanac, which of the following is home to six of the twenty most populated cities in the U.S. -- more than any other state?
A: Texas
B: California
C: Florida
D: New York

Trent believes that those are the four most populated states in the country.  He brings in his friend, Donnie, and he can think of a few cities in B that could be among the twenty most populated.  They do agree that it's not C or D.  They consider what cities in A would be among the twenty, and after some consideration, Trent decides to go with B... but it's A!  As a result, he leaves with $5,000.

Since time is running short, Paris Harman has a shot at $1,000 with this...

It might sound like an item at a Hindu god's Thanksgiving feast, but which of these is actually a giant spherical boulder in India?
A: Thor's stuffing
B: Apollo's cornbread
C: Krishna's butterball
D: Osiris' green bean casserole

Paris is about 75% sure that it's C... and she's 100% right!
