  Giada De Laurentiis (Los Angeles, CA) starts the show today with $30,000 for Alex's Lemonade Stand, but she's out of lifelines.

Though they wound up skipping it so they could walk on the Moon as soon as possible, the Apollo 11 astronauts were originally scheduled to do what after landing?
A: Write in their journals
B: Take a nap
C: Talk to their families
D: Bathe

Giada has a competitive side that doesn't want to do this, but after thinking about it, she decides to walk with the $30,000 for Alex's Lemonade Stand! As for the answer, it's B.

Penn & Teller (Las Vegas, NV) - Magicians
Charity: Opportunity Village

They're on a roll as they eventually get to this...

Which of these animals has a unique bodily feature that, at a rate of up to 1 inch per day, is believed to be the fastest-growing tissue among mammals?
A: Mouse
B: Elephant
C: Duck
D: Deer

Penn initially considers A for its tail, but Teller isn't so sure. Penn then notes the words "unique bodily feature," and after some time, he notes that of those, only D has antlers. But Teller is considering the trunk of B. They use the 50:50, and as it turns out, that leaves B and D. They decide to go with Teller's answer, B... but it's D! It is indeed the antlers! With that, they get $10,000 for Opportunity Village.

While you were being fired from your cush $3 million-a-year job, Billy Bush, we were teaming up for another Tag Team Tuesday. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #AddAMovieRuinAMovie. Jesse leads with 1300 to 900 for Carmen and 700 for Matthew.

In act 2, we have Crass Transit: Subway Creatures Edition (people riding human tubes) and tonight's Live Challenge, Jury Cutie. The Phillie Phanatic can't get out of jury duty. How could the Phanatic have gotten out of jury duty? Carmen gets 1000 from "I can't be impartial in a domestic abuse trial, because I believe you have to 'Be, aggressive, be, be aggressive."

Next up, #ItsTheGreatPumpkin, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Halloween epic. Matthew will still be waiting.

FTW: Uber's ad drones mock Mexican commuters. What are some other signs that a drone can offend you with on the highway? The winner: "Put your (deal) away." CARMEN wins the Internet!

Tomorrow's funny makes for the game on Wednesday. Continue the game online @midnight.

Wayne offers a pair of luxury watches from Rado worth $2,900 not to scratch 7. He goes for 7 and wins...NOTHING. 7 was Jonathan. 3 and 8 were the car!

Lana the gumball machine has Curtain 3 which is a CAR. But is it good or bad? Will she take it or the $50 on the outside Bankroll? She takes the Bankroll and passes on a BEAT UP BUICK(ZONK)! Will she keep the bankroll or take the Big Box? She keeps the money and passes on a 49" 4K HDTV/Gaming Laptop/XBOX One/Kinect and Cable for a Year worth $3,897! She keeps the bankroll and passes on the small box which was a 4N trip to the Orlando World Marriott Resort worth $4,742! She passes on the Entertainment system for $50 + 33 X $50 = $1,700! But wait...there's something in the bankroll...AN ADDITIONAL CHECK FOR $7,500 making that bankroll worth $9,200!

We need a couple and they are Nancy/Barry(pirates - together for 33 years - known each other 42 years). They get $500 and can earn $1,500 more by playing "My Husband Sounds Like A...".

They have $1,500 and can keep it take the envelope? They go for the envelope and win a trip...TO THE BAHAMAS for 5N at the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach worth $6,155!

Kelly the Birthday Cupcake and Peggy in the yellow sunglasses each get $1,000. Kelly buys the small box for $500 and Peggy has to buy it as well. They both win a 15" Laptop and a pair of Android Smartphones worth $2,800! Peggy buys the Big Box with the last $500 and Kelly has to buy it too. We add Designer Accessories from Tory Burch worth $3,440 to their total! They have $6,240 each! Who keeps and who trades for Curtain 3? They both pass on a CHOCOLATE FONDUE HOT TUB(ZONK)!

Kelly the Cowgirl is playing MOVIN' ON UP for a shot at a Honda Civic LX Sedan worth $20,275! She must roll a single die and get to the row of 2 from the row of 6 without rolling a number not on the board. Her first roll is a 4 and $200. She must roll a 1 or a 2 to get the car and all the cash she wins along the way! Kelly decides to move on to the row of 5 and rolls 4 and adds $600. She moves on to the row of 4 and rolls 5 and she is OUT. Consolation roll $50 X 1 = $50 and $50 for ripping her horse!

Last deal involves Cynthia the Disco Ball who can take the LMAD Jack in the Box or the Big Box. She takes the Big Box and passes on $2,700 in cash for a ZONK MERRY GO ROUND(ZONK)!

Anne Exler
Underhill, VT

JEOPARDY! ROUND: I'm a Wheel Watcher, Planet Earth, What Can You Buy for a Buck?, US History, LA Television, T(4 Letters)T

Shannon goes first with the Daily Double under $600 Planet Earth. He bets the $1000 max on this: this dark, organic substance found in soil & formed from decaying matter is good for plants; some might try to eat it with pita. "What is humus?" RIGHT for $1000! He ends up with $5400 to $5000 for Anne. Jeremy has $200 and the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Authors with Presidential Names, 2-Word Countries, Rock "Me"; Dome, Dome on the Range; Where Seldom Is Heard; A Discouraging Word.

... with $1200 2-Word Countries. Jeremy has the first Daily Double under $1600 Dome, Dome on the Range. He fronts the max on this: a shell structure with a frame of tubing connected into hexagons, pentagons & triangle is this type of dome. "What is geodesic?" RIGHT for $3400! Shannon finds the other under $800 2-Word Countries. He fronts $5000 on this: it occupies most of the world's largest peninsula. "What is Saudi Arabia?" RIGHT for $14,400! He ends with $18,000 to $14,200 for Anne. Jeremy has $11,400.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Funnymen": he's won 4 Emmys, 3 Grammys, an Oscar & 3 Tonys, & 3 of his films rank on AFI's list of Funniest Movies of All Time. Correct response: who is Mel Brooks?

Jeremy's right... and so is Shannon to win another $28,431, giving him $49,062 for two!

Yesterday... No bueno. Despite getting a really viral moment.

Today, we begin again with Derek Goodhart, Dominique Weaver, Patrice Sinclair, and Sidney Gulledge playing for an HD camcorder with waterproof camera. The $780 package goes to Sidney in his dress whites, who can use them in Costa Rica (5n @ Peace Lodge) if he wins Freeze Frame. He stops it at $7910... But it was $5946.

Samantha Schneider goes down and up thanks to a $668 set of pearl jewelry. Can she rake in the green in Pay the Rent? In the mail, Knudsen's cottage cheese snack for $1.29. On the first floor: Blue Diamond Nut-Thins ($2.99) and Tone Mango Splash body wash ($6.99) for a total of $9.98. She stops at $5000. Good thing, because the Hershey's cocoa ($4.99) and the Panda Express orange sauce ($4.49) add up to $9.48, and the Aspercreme patch was $8.99. Here's the winner...

ATTIC: Pain relief
2F: Body wash/cottage cheese
1F: Cocoa/Nuts
MAILBOX: Body wash

Derek wins a $522 karaoke and a shot at a Nissan Sentra in Balance Game. The bags: $615, $8000, $9000, and $11,000. He goes with $19,615.... But it was $17,615.

Nine non-wins in a row this week, as Derek spins out a win in the Showcase Showdown. Meanwhile, Merri Frankle wins an $800 pop-a-shot & dart game. She can play with a pair of scooters if she wins Squeeze Play.

5 2 8 3 8

She pulls the 8...$5238 is a win!

James Harden Sr. makes a $2025 trip to Palm Springs (3n @ Hyatt Palm Springs) look easy. Can he do likewise with a 4KTV/Blu-Ray home theater and refrigerator/freezer/gas range? It's Double Cross.

4 1 3   9 5 0
5 4 3   5 0 7


He goes with $3250 for the TV and $3295 for the appliances... RIGHT!

Dominique and Patrice are about to punch their tickets to the land of parting gifts if they don't win a set of Tory Burch accessories. The price: $1080. The winner... Rosanto Ordinario. Next up, a waffler, LED lights, a car vacuum, and a blender.... and a 2017 Ford Focus in Switcheroo.

CAR: $22,1_8
Waffler: $_5
LED lights: $_3
Car vacuum: $_6
Blender: $_2
NUMBER: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

First pass is 3-1-2-5-4... THREE right. Rosanto changes it to 4-1-2-3-5... NOTHING. Even worse: the car was $22,138.

James meets Derek in the Showcase. First, going under the stars with a telescope, patio furniture, an iMac/iPhone 6S/iPad Pro package, and a sailboat with scuba gear. Top winner James passes, and Derek bids $20,125. James listens to a fairy tale with trips to Las Vegas (4n @ Red Rock Casino), Denmark (6n @ 71 Nyhavn Hotel), and Bali (6n @ Samabe Bali Suites & Villas). He bids $22,000. Actual price: $27,519, a difference of $5519. Actual price of Derek's Showcase... $29,382, a difference of $9257, and James wins it with $37,123!
