  Some days it pays to be smart. Some days it pays to be fast. Some days it pays to be lucky. Over the last seven days, Matt has been all three. 
Matt Jackson
Washington, DC
John Kozempel
IT consultant
Ernestine Gardner
South Bend, IN
administrative assistant

Matt starts with $600 TV. Thanks to a category called, we kid you not, The IT Guy, John leads with $4600 to Matt's $3000 at the TV timeout. Ernestine, barely a blip on $400.

John finds the Daily Double under $800 State of Emergency. Leading by $200, he bets $2200 on this: on March 28, 1979 a nuclear plant in this state suffered a massive core meltdown. "What is Pennsylvania?" Everything's coming up John with $6800. The lead evaporates as John and Matt are tied at the half with $8000 each. Ernestine has $600 and the board to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Swords. Matt finds the first Daily Double under $1600 I Am History! He fronts $6000 on this: in the 1940s he needed 2 tries to become mayor of Minneapolis; 20 years later, he was Vice President. "Who is Hubert Humphrey?" GOOD FOR $24,000! He finds the other under $800 These Words Could Go On a Diet. He goes for $4000 on this: meaning plump, this adjective begins with a shipboard direction. "What is portly?" RIGHT for $29,200! After a line-ruling costs him $4000, Matt still has enough to lock the game away with $36,800. John and Ernestine, out of it with $4400 and $3000 respectively.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "European Authors": "To explain...Harry by the artless division into wolf and man is a hopelessly childish attempt", he wrote in 1927. Correct response: who was Hermann Hesse?

Matt is right to take another $40,009 to put him over the $200,000 mark with $230,610!

While you were busy celebrating the 10th anniversary of "Twilight" by reading the gender-swapped version (and yes there is one), we were swapping Tag Team Thursday for Tag Team Tuesday. Tonight's #HashtagWars: in honor of Thomas Edison and his one out of 20 awesome radio, #BadInventions. Kurt leads with 700 to the others' 600 a pop.

In Act 2, we have TRLsd (bizarre music videos the whole world over) and tonight's Live Challenge: The Charles Xavier Zoo for Gifted Animals. Thirty years after the Chernobyl incident, the area is teeming with wildlife. Lead a wildlife tour for precarious tourists. Kurt gets 1000 from "Sloth now called "Razor handed monkey (lover)"... he name himself."

We're rounding third with English as a Second Language. Observations about this game: sometimes if you're really good, Chris will leave you in the game.

FTW: The HA1loween Whopper has a black bun that will turn your poop green. Come up with a new slogan. The winner: #2... heh, "It ain't easy (pooping) green." And like that, ALEXI WASSER GOES FROM WORST TO FIRST!

Remember, today's funny becomes tomorrow's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.

ROUND 1's letters of great importance are A and TT. The twins go with A, getting Atlantic, Alicia Silverstone, and athlete's foot for $300. Ryan & Adi are left with TT, getting tater tot, Trump Tower, and tummy tuck to tie it up at $300.

ROUND 2, do a switcheroo. Adi gives on Saturday Night Live, getting Lorne Michaels & The Coneheads for $400, $700 total. Elaine gives on New York, getting the Yankees (C-Note: Go Yankees!), Adam Sandler, Sex and the City, Friends, and Central Park. That gives them the lead, $1300 to $700.

In the Craig-led speed round, it's Sweet Stuff. It comes down to the $800 word of Professor Plum. Tied at $2400 a piece... Adi scores the comeback victory, $3200 to $2400.

Adi leads off the Bonus Round, getting Christina Aguilera, Space Needle, Olive Garden, Danny Glover, tweezers, Catwoman, Scrabble, and Pat Sajak. Ryan's left with Fiat and cover girl... but can't score on either.

  Today's flight is 433, departing from Moline to Las Vegas.

BATTLE OF THE AGES: Edie Peterson (Dixon, IL; farmer) is playing for a pair of Legends in Concert tickets, $75 from Margaritaville, and Dump Cakes cookbooks for her side of 50 (she's 55), while Gina (Davenport, IA) is playing for VCards & Hawker sunglasses for HER side of 50 (she's 33). Gina leads $100-$75 going into the final round. Edie, which is older: Chris Rock or Sharon Stone? She goes with Sharon Stone... RIGHT for $175. Gina, which is older: Monday Night Football or Saturday Night Live? She goes with SNL... NOT RIGHT! Edie wins her lot!

PICK A PARTNER: Kyle (Iowa City, IA) will get to pick which of his 16 bros he gets to play with.... and someone outside of said group. His bro Luke and stranger Stacy (Cedar Rapids, IA) will help Kyle answer two-part questions. Each question is worth $50, and both partners will be available twice. If you answer all five questions including the final $100 question, Kyle wins tickets to see Zarkana at the MGM Grand AND a free buffet at the Palms for everyone on the plane. Going into the final question, Kyle has $150, Stacy has $50, and Luke has $100. The final: These 2 magicians were staples on the Vegas Strip for many years with their team of white tigers. Stacy says... Siegfried. Kyle... Freud. It was Roy.

ROTATION DEVICE: Carl & Debra Blum (husband & wife from East Moline) race cars. They have to name things off of a list. How many is dependent on what they spin on the Rotation Device - 2, 3, 4 or All. Each list is worth $100. Three out of four is worth a 5-star VIP helicopter tour! They get 2 of the Great Lakes (Erie, Michigan) and 3 of the eight parts of speech (adjective, adverb, pronoun). Their first names were Victoria, Melanie, Melanie, Geri & Emma, but we knew them as the Spice Girls. How many of their spicy nicknames can you name? They get 3. ... but can't come up with Sporty, Baby, Ginger, Posh, or Scary. One more: A pair is the lowest-ranking hand in a game of poker. Without wild cards there are seven other hands that are better. They have to name 3. Full house, four of a kind, and straight flush are RIGHT!

We're getting ready to land this plane, but not before the two big winners of the day, Carl & Debra and Edie, play the BIG DEAL for a stay at the executive king suite at MGM Grand. The Blums decide to go first.

CARL & DEBRA: 10-2-4-J-8-K (5)
EDIE: 3-J-5-Q-4-7 (WIN!)

Erin is going to Canada!
