  Leading off today's show... another round of Kidiotest. .
JJ, 14 & Jalen, 13
Sarah, 11 & Amanda, 11

- JJ/Jalen: Touch the tail. They hit the pony tail for $60... RIGHT!
- Sarah/Amanda: Touch the water cooler. There's a lot of water, but the filtered pitcher is wrong. Sarah was right to think about ice.
- JJ/Jalen: Touch the odd duck. They go with the only duck that isn't made of rubber for $200, $260 total.
- Sarah/Amanda: Which one is getting the biggest kick out of the game? They hit the footballer from the TV. But getting the biggest kick would be the ball. JJ & Jalen lead, $260-$0.

- Amanda: The left farmer is MacDonald. The right farmer is MacGuire. Which one is machinery? She runs out of time before thinking about the tractor in the background.
- JJ: Which movie is a real scream: Pretty Boring, Shriek, or Thirty Minutes Over Dubuque? He runs out of time on "Shriek".
- Sarah: If you enter the maze heading east, what direction will you be heading when you exit? She hits east for $175... RIGHT!
- Jalen: Look closely and touch the pattern. He touches the "pattern" on the board. He does, and the BFFs lead, $610 to $175.

- $1000 (JJ vs. Sarah): What colors the elephant? It's a paintbrush that colors it. JJ is right for $500 more, and Sarah... not so much. She went with the paper. Guys lead, $1110 to $175.
- $2500 (Jalen vs. Amanda): What is the opposite of the opposite of smart? Both hit quickly. Amanda went with smart for $2100 to end with $2275! BUT Jalen also went with smart to win for him & JJ, $3110!

- Touch the highest diamond.

JJ saw a diamond on the card house (as in the type formed by four cards). Jalen went with the same thing... and... PAPER! $10,000!

In the nightcap, it's sibling rivalry. Twins Tiffany & Michelle lead brother/sister Jennifer & Beau Garner, $650 to $380

- $1000 (Michelle vs. Jennifer): Touch the difference in the picture on the right. The difference was in "indifference". Stephanie found it to take the lead, $930 to $650.
- $2500 (Tiffany vs. Beau): Which horse has the highest odds? Beau went with one of the horse shadows. Wrong. Tiffany went with Mr. Show at 1 to 3 odds. All the odds are the same, but the highest odds... Dr. Brule at 3 to 9, the two highest numbers. Jennifer & Beau win, $930 to $650!

- Which word should replace the question mark on the farmer's sign (WE PRODUCE ?): steel, bricks, or diamonds?

Beau hits the vegetable stand. Jennifer hits the same stand. They needed to hit "produce". As in we pro-DUCE PRO-duce.

While you were looking for Pokemon on your smart phone, admit it, we were... also looking for Pokemon on our smart phone. We were also looking for at-home partners for a Tag Team Tuesday. After a special RNC Panderdome, it's tonight's #HashtagWars: #OverheardAtRNC. Dave leads with 800 to the others' 600 a piece.

As we continue on, we have Sweet Emoji: Hollywood Edition (they're making "The Emoji Movie", August 11, 2017). Tonight's Live Challenge: Dank Squats. A new gym in San Francisco will allow members to spark up a J while working out. Give a motivational workout for stoners. Lauren gets 1000 from "Lift the TV and put it down. Lift the TV and put it down... Wait a minute, this isn't the gym, it's a Best Buy."

Running out of show, so let's play A Speed Game About Pussycats, about a cat's hairball coming from someone's (whistles). Matt is in third, and... well, the bad news: you're eliminated. The good news: you just caught a Jigglypuff.

FTW: Chris Christie just got ghosted by his own hero. Send him a break-up text as the official Republican presidential candidate. The winner: "New VP. Who dis?" That's... DAVE HOLMES!

Today's funny becomes tomorrow's source material. Continue the game online @midnight.

  A win today puts Ellen in the tournament talk.
Ellen Corrigan

law clerk
Pranjal Vachaspati
orig. Shaker Heights, OH
PhD student
Carolyn Riegle
Norfolk, VA

JEOPARDY! ROUND: These Aren't Bible Books, Dude-eronomy; Job, Not Job; First, Queens; Adaptations 5; Synonyms 1 & 2.

Ellen starts with $200 Synonyms 1 & 2, where she finds the Daily Double under $800. She fronts it all on this: this 8-letter synonym for a delegate or ambassador comes from the Latin for "to send out". She blanks on emissary, dropping her to zero. She recovers to $3400 to Pranjal's $5000. Carolyn's $2600 gives her the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: These Are Bible Books, I Kings, Exodus, Song of Solomon, Revelation, L"uke".

... with $400 I Kings. Ellen finds the first Daily Double under $2000 Revelation. She goes for $3000 on this: the Teapot Dome Scandal during President Harding's term was about giving unfair access to reserves of this commodity. "What is oil?" RIGHT for $9200! Pranjal finds the other under $2000 These Are Bible Books. After a score correction giving him the lead, he bets $3210 on this: in "Soliloquy of the Spanish Cloister", Robert Browning rhymed this Pauline epistle with "damnations". "What is Galatians?" RIGHT for $21,410! He ends up with that much to Ellen's $11,210. Carolyn has $7000.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Judges": before he headed up the Supreme Court, he argued only 1 case before it--a 1796 case he ironically argued on states' rights grounds. Correct response: who was John Marshall?

Ellen is right.. but so is Pranjal to win $25,910! Ellen leaves with $42,000.
