The Cox family knew their colleges for smart people and it got

Bryan & Beth play Fast Money one last time. Bryan had a rough
outting, and the last two answers of partying and gas tank were
not good ones. He only got 32. Beth didn't do too well either,
other than her last answer, so they will leave with a new car and
a five-day total of $42,105.
Fast Money #1 answers

nights (Lots of people are night owls)

Youlanda & Becky will not get to play Fast Money. Youlanda started
low, but rallied through to score 122. Becky could only get one
best answer on her side, which would not be enough. But the ladies
finish with a total of $835.
@midnight with Chris Hardwick
by Chico Alexander
Comedy Central: 11p/10C
Host: Chris Hardwick
While you were busy meeting up with
the President... Pope Francis... we were mourning the loss of a
few comics and a really legendary baseball player. Tonight's #HashtagWars:
it's all about cats.and #CatHistory. Jesse had 900 to Ron's 800
and Sara's 700.
In the middle, we have Stars!
They're Just Like Us! (Thanks, Worth1000.com). Tonight's Live
Challenge: Wicked Fishah'. Bostonians interacting with nature.
What else are they amazed by? Ron gets 1000 from: "Hey bro, oh my
(bloody) God. If you just ask for a water cup, you can totally
fill it up with soda & they'll be none the wiser. They don't ever
notice the (bleeping) bubbles."
Still looking fashionable, but
we're speeding it up with Motor City Mad Men Tell No Tales. We're
sleeping with one eye open while Nugent hunts Sara down.... but
after much convincing, Chris reverses his decision.
FTW: As a tribute to Yogi Berra,
come up with one of his lesser-known quotes. The winner: One if by
land, two in the stink. Yanks rule! And just like that... RON
FUNCHES IS TWO FOR THREE!
Remember, today's funny becomes

- Nadine: One of these ships' flags is upside-down. Touch it. She
hits Japan for $125.
- Alex: Which company profited from LOSSES? He went with "Good Buy
Funeral Home". Profiting from losses puts them at $795
- Meaghan: Which movie title is literally represented by a tornado
poster? She hits Gone with the Wind... for another $225.
- Jackson: Touch the two silhouettes of people: He touches the two
people, not the two silhouettes. He still leads, $795 to $350.
HEAD TO HEAD:
- $1000 (Jackson vs. Nadine): only one candidate is telling the
truth. Which one? Jackson says it's the one who says there is one
liar on stage. Nadine says there are two. Nadine is right for
$400, $750 total.
- $2500 (Alex vs. Meaghan): touch the item that is formed when you
put two of the words below (REST, ACHE, TIME, HANG, MUST, CALL)
next to each other. Meaghan comes from behind to win it for
Nadine, $2350 to $2295. The word: MUSTACHE.
SMART MONEY: Based on the tub's
label (H -> O), what liquid should fill it: bourbon, water, sweet
tea, or gin? Nadine says "water". Meaghan says "water". For
$10,000... THEY'RE RIGHT! Because it says "H to O". Read that out
In the nightcap, engaged couple
Nicole & Epi lead siblings Denisha & J'vion, $500 to $170. $1000
H2H: which two signs mean the same thing? Neither team picks up on
"no U turn/T_RN". $2500 H2H:
how many red-and-blue squares are in the figure below? Not 9. Not
10. Five. So Nicole & Epi win $500 to $170.
SMART MONEY: Find the counterfeit
bill. Nicole says the right one. Epi says the top one. It was the
left one (Jackson's head is flipped).

Happy Hump Day! We kick off Wednesday
action with Kristine Persott, Spencer Sorensen, Hillary
Bloomfield, James Golden, and a MacBook pro. The $1369 laptop goes
to Spencer, who can win a $785 dishwasher, $2275 Kate Spade
purses, and a $3300 4KTV if he knows which of the prices is wrong.
He goes with the purses... $2275. The dishwasher was $1200.
Kristine picks up a $1500 set of Helen Ficalora jewelry, but can
she pick up a Dodge Dart? All she has to do is spell C-A-R in
Spelling bee. She gets two freebies and another from a $33 hair
dryer. She bails with $3000. Good thing, because all she could
muster was ACC. Good for college ball, bad for this game.
Michaela Stamm wins a $688 pair of cameras and a chance at a trip
to Cape Cod (5n @ the Cape Codder) in Bonkers. The price is not
$5764. She goes high, low, how, high... PERFECT! It was $6637.

in Check Game. He writes the check for $2200. The grill... $5994.
The total: $8194.
Rhonda Carazosa gets an activity tracker, Galaxy phone, and
service worth $1855. She'll complete the living-well package with

loser island, Stacy will try for a Fiat 500 Pop in Lucky Seven.

LEADERBOARD (win/high score):
1) Ray Nhan: 2 wins/20,500 pts.
ON THE BUBBLE:
Last week, we kicked off the new
season by throwing in a new twist and crowning a champ. Now for
the first time ever, Ray Nhan will defend. And as long as Ray
wins, he keeps cashing checks.
San Marino, CA
radio advertising salesman
Ray earned his way to the front
seat, so he'll play the board first with 250 2015 NCAA Tournament
Teams, where Sabreena picks up the StubHub Daily Double under
1000. She punches a max ticket on this: of the 4 no. 1 seeds in
the 2015 tourney, this team was from the farthest north. "What is
Wisconsin?" Should've won the whole thing. She's up to 1750. She
builds that up to 3750 at the break with Joe on 1250. The champ
not exactly playing like one with 250.
But we saw it before last week. Ray can still catch up and add
another win to his stance on the leaderboard.
Fun fact: Sabreena is an alumnus of That University Eight Miles
Down The Road and a former Cameron Crazie. Which would explain how
she got the Daily Double. At the half, she leads with 5750 to
Joe's 4500. Ray has 2500 and the board to start Double
... with 500 ESPN's 30 for 30 Subjects. Joe finds the first Daily
Double under 1500 Wild Cards (as in "Cardinals", not wild cards as
in round 1). He bets 3500 on this: this St. Louis legend had 3630
career hits--1815 at home & 1815 on the road. "Who is Stan Musial?"
Get your harmonicas out, folks, Joe's up to 10,000! He finds the
other under 1000 Where's That Stadium? He bets 5000 on this: Old
Trafford, uniting 76,000 more-than-casually interested fans: this
city. "What is Manchester?" Got it for 15,500! He rises, then
falls, to 16,000 to Ray's 10,500. Sabreena's still in it with
9250. Very much up for grabs here.
FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "National League Playoff Games": in 2014
Travis Ishikawa hit the 1st playoff walkoff HR to send an NL team
right to the Series since this man did it more than 60 years
earlier. Correct response: who was Bobby Thompson?
It was the Shot Heard Round the World, and in the Final Heard
Round the World, Ray pulls it out again with a back-to-back and a
belly-to-belly. His 20,500 gives him another $5000, $10,000 for
two games. Joe leaves with $2000 to Sabreena's $1000.

His valedictorian speech went viral on YouTube, getting 3.5

He sweeps the first 5, then uses the 50:50 at $10,000. Soon, he
