Theodore Conrad

JEOPARDY! ROUND: What's for Breakfast?, Classic Novels, Motorcycle Makers, Words & THeir Meanings, Broadway Names, State of the Lotto Scratcher

Alex starts wtih $800 Classic Novels, where Theodore finds the Daily Double under $600. He bets $400 on this: Esther Greenwood is a college student & aspiring poet in the 1950s who suffers a mental breakdown in this auto-biographical novel. "What is 'The Bell Jar'?" That's right, but because Theodore blanks, he drops to $400. He recovers to $3000 to tie Alex. Stephanie is on $3600.

Closest to Alex starts Double Jeopardy!; that's Alex.... Alex is close to Alex.. anyway, here's her board...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Not-So-Easy Kids' TV, Doppelhangers, When I Was Secretary of State..., Animal Maladies, All About Eve, In Extremis

... with $1200 Doppelhangers, finding the first Daily Double under $1600 All About Eve. She wagers $3000 on this: in genetics, this "Eve" named for part of maternal DNA refers to the last common female ancestor of all modern humans. "What is mitochondrial Eve?" RIGHT for $7200! Stephanie finds the other under $800 When I Was Secretary of State.... She fronts $3000 on this: I opposed slavery & got us what would be an entire state, though no one appreciate it at the time. Hurtful! "Who is William Seward?" Got it for $10,200! She ends up with $15,000 to $8800 for Alex. Theodore can spoil with $5400.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Literary New York": an insider described the scene there: "Just...loudmouths showing off, saving their gags for days, waiting to spring them." Correct response: what is the Algonquin Round Table?

No one comes up with it, but Stephanie holds back to win $12,399. Alex leaves with $35,549.

Tuesday of "Rakuten $20,000 Shopping Spree" week starts off with Nicole the Solid Gold Dancer. She is playing for a Hyundai Accent worth $18,265! The game is WINFALL. We have 7 discs on a descending ramp - 2 red, 2 yellow, 2 blue and one green that says WIN. Nicole will roll a 10 sided die with red, blue, yellow and one black starred space(wild) on it. As long as Nicole can roll within the rules we set and make the WIN-FALL(get it), she will win the Hyundai. Her first roll is RED, then another RED. She can not roll another RED or else the game is over. Wayne offers $500 and Nicole passes. She rolls RED. She is OUT. Wayne offers $200 if she rolls red or the star wedge. She rolls YELLOW.

Let's try to get the winning started with Annie the bunch of grapes. She plays WISHING WELL and draws 2 coins - they represent the small box and the Big Box. Annie keeps the small box. Will she take the small box or the cash hidden in the coin? She takes the box and passes on $500. Annie wins a Furniture Town Plus Dining Room worth $4,999! Let's do it again with Alana the 1980's lady. She picks the envelope and Big Box coins. Alana keeps the Big Box coin and passes on the coin cash which was $400. The Big Box gives Alana a computer package with all in one computer and Surface Book Laptop along with 2 Tablets worth $6,197! One more time with feeling with Ryan the Beatboxer. The last two are Curtain 1 and the envelope. He picks the envelope. Curtain 1's coin had $600 and Curtain 1 was an outdoor grill from Bull and a smoker and a year of Sparkling Ice Water worth $2,927! Ryan takes the envelope and passes on $700!  Ryan and his newlywed wife got married last Friday(as of the tape date). They wanted a honeymoon...and got one! They are going to Turks and Caicos for 5N at the Ocean Club Resorts but thats not all...Wayne is not sure but fine...let's add the $20,000 SHOPPING SPREE TO RAKUTEN! With the trip, it's worth $28,403!

Taronta the Cowboy can get the good news or bad news about the Curtain 3 prize from Great Spirit Jonathan! Taronta asks for the good news and it is this - IT WILL GET YOU PLACES. Taronta takes Curtain 3 over the LMAD Gift Bag which was POISON IVY EARRINGS. Taronta wins a Suzuki Boulevard Motorcycle worth $5,799!

Christopher the Tropical Guy is shown the small box and is a VIP Experience to the MLS's LA Galaxy worth $3,000 - SO FAR. We have two screens - red and green. One has another prize and one has a zonk. Will Christopher risk his prize for a shot at 2? He goes GREEN and adds a trip to KEY WEST! It's a 4N stay at the La Concha Key West worth $8,053(with the soccer experience)! Bruna the Hot Dog brought her purse down for a very good reason. Wayne will ask for three items. If she has them, she will get $500 each. We need a guy to guess whether she has the items or not. If she does, he will get $500 per item(up to three). He is Jonathan the 80s guy. He says YES to NAIL CLIPPERS, but she doesn't have it. No cash so far. Jonathan says YES to a RECEIPT. She does, and they have $500. They also have $500 more because he says YES to a HAIR BRUSH and she whips it out. They both have $1,000. Jonathan buys Curtain 1 for his $1,000 and wins a VP Cabs Virtual Arcade Machine and Game Room Guys Ping Pong Table worth $7,494! Bruna keeps her $1,000 and does not but Curtain 2 which is a ROLL AWAY BED(ZONK)!

MarieAntoniette the Soccer Player and Michael the Pharaoh are playing for a VW Jetta Sedan worth $19,640! We have 8 numbers on stage - and underneath 6 of them have the letters that spell WINNER. Two have zonks. The last dealer to spell WINNER without hitting a zonk wins the car. Marieantoniette goes first by picking the $100 envelope to Michael's $50. She picks 7 and it's an N. Michael picks 3 and it's a W. Marieantoniette passes on $500 and picks 8. She is OUT with a zonk. Michael picks 5 and it's another N. He passed on $500 for that last N and passes on $1,000 to pick 2. He is OUT with the 2nd ZONK.

Last deal of the day involves a couple of family members. They are Melchor/Yasmin(dad/daughter explorer dinosaur). Dad makes the decision first. And Yasmin may veto one decision. Melkor can take the small box(IT CAN BE WORN) or the BIG BOX(IT CAN BE WATCHED). They pass on the small box and it was a Diamonds by Angie Diamond Ring worth $3,400. They can take the Big Box or the teeny box(IT CAN BE RIDDEN). Yasmin vetoes the decision of Dad to take the teeny box - that was A VERY GOOD CALL because it was a ZONK MERRY GO ROUND.  They pass on the Big Box which was a pair of 65" HDTVs worth $6,500! Melchor/Yasmin are going to Jamaica for 4N at the Moon Palace Jamaica worth $9,630!

Who trades for a shot at $23,367? Christopher trades his soccer experience and trip!

He picks 2. 1 was a new kitchen with refrigerator, range, microwave, and Joseph Joseph kitchen tool collection worth $5,847! Christopher wins a home gym with Cardiogym Treadmill and Kettlebell set worth $4,658! 3 was the Big Deal and it starts with a GREEK CRUISE from Celestyal Cruises for 7N along with EVERYTHING IN THE BIG DEAL!
