Last week, 40-year-old aerospace engineer Evan Valeri (St. Ann's Catholic School) made it up to $100,000. He still has a Copy and a Save left.

( $175,000 ) G4 US History
What man was the US Secretary of War and provisional governor of Cuba before being elected president in 1908?

Evan COPIES Lauren. Correct: William Howard Taft. Lauren wrote, for $175,000... William Taut. Sorry, but he's got to rule it as wrong. But Evan does get $25,000. And he gets to tell the world... "My name's Evan Valeri. I may know a lot about airplanes, but I'm not smarter than a 5th grader."

Next up, a professor named Regina Trammell (38; Dahlia Heights Elementary). She's got her Bachelor's & Masters, AND she's working on her PhD right now. We begin off the bat with a Kid Co-Host: Mateo "Listen Linda" Contreras!

( $1000 ) G1 Mathematics
If Linda makes a dozen cupcakes and Mateo eats 5 of them, how many cupcakes are left?

She goes with 7... and she's right for $1000.  She zooms up the ziggurat until she calls on Simmons Horton Allison III...

( $25,000 ) G3 US History
The "Stamp Act" of 1765 was a British act of Parliament imposing a tax on what?
a) Tea
b) Horses
c) Paper

Regina picks C... RIGHT for the sure thing!

( $50,000 ) G3 Earth Science
What is the name of a triangle-shaped deposit of sediment at the mouth of a river?

Regina COPIES Tres' answer. Correct: delta. Tres' answer: Delta!

( $100,000 ) G4 Measurements
If your mom sends you to the store for 3 gallons of ice cream but the store only sells pints, how many pints must you buy?

Two pints in a quart, four quarts in a gallon. Eight times three, 24. Regina PEEKS. Lauren said, 48. Regina went with that, and she leaves with $25,000. "My name is Regina Trammell. I may be a professor, but I'm not smarter than a 5th grader."

(C-Note: the following episode was intended to air May 5 of this year, but those plans were put on hold, as it offered a trip to Nepal around the same time that a devastating earthquake hit the region. It's simply one of those things that was out of Price Control's hands).

It's another summer make-good at 33, and also at 33, correspondent and friend of the site Mike Klauss. Will he get the calldown?

First up, Jessica Harris, Michael Druskovich, Gary Thompson & Taylor Riley bidding on an iMac with AirPort Extreme. The $1998 package goes to Taylor, who tries for an ultra HDTV, a set of BCBG accessories, and an elliptical trainer. They're marked at $3000, $1174, and $2768 respectively. One of those is wrong. She goes with the accessories... $1174. The elliptical was $2000.

Gary gets a $580 wine cooler and a shot at a Honda Civic LX in Card Game. His window... $3000. He draws to $18,500. The price has to be between that and $21,500... It is... $19,910

Jessica picks up a $2109 smart phone with service. She'll ring up her friends from the Galapagos Islands (6n @ Hotel Solymar in Santa Cruz) if she conquers Now or Then?. Then: March '96. Blue Diamond almonds for $4.59. Now? YES! Miracle-Gro plant food for $5.19. Then? Nope, now. Dixie napkins for $3.49. Now? YES! Rolaids for $4.99. Then? Nope. That locks her out of the win.

Taylor spins out a win in the Showcase Showdown. Meanwhile, Jean Thomas gets a $1215 set of jewelry. She gets to try and turn a $658 digital smoker, a $67 rice cooker, and a $942 cutlery set into a Hyundai Elantra in Line'em Up. First try: $15,692... only one right. $18,642? Nope, it was $18,622. So close...

Duane Bible goes down and up thanks to a righteous $820 pair of GoPros. He'll affix one to a waverunner if he wins Side by Side. It's either $8864 or $6488. He goes with $8864...RIGHT!

Michael has one last chomp at the bit for an air hockey table. The price: $750. Winner... Lina Holifield. Next up, maybe another five pucks. It's PLINKO TIME! With chips from Drew, a $56 car vacuum, a $28 salad spinner, and a $12 broom, she wins $21,500!

But Duane would meet up with Taylor in the Showcase. First up, a trampoline and trips to Nepal (6n @ Hyatt Regency Kathmandu) & Australia (6n @ Kewara Beach Resort & Spa in Cairns). Top winner Duane passes, and Taylor bids $22,500. Duane gets a Cinco de Mayo Showcase of a frozen margarita maker, a dinette set, a trip to Cancun (5n), and a Toyota Yaris. He tags it at $26,000. Actual price: $24,681. Actual price of Taylor's Showcase... $21,447... and baby now we got bad blood...

Next time we meet will be September 8 for the season-ending Back-to-School Special. That's precisely two weeks from now.
