Chelsea & Paula
Team Brains

It's Brains vs. Brawn one more time, only this time, it's for cash.

- Brawn: Which one is definitely a vegetarian. They go with the grass-fed beef for $160.
- Brains: Touch the hands that are the biggest in real life. They touch the hands of Big Ben... and they have $180!
- Brawn: Touch what shows 32=0. They go with the thermometer... and that's right for another $120.
- Brains: Which of these is aloud? They go with "No running"... and they have the lead, $400 to $280.

- Ariel: first, touch the American Grizzly Bear. Then touch the grizzly bare American. She does for $100.
- Paula: touch the garbage bag. She bangs on a trash can. But the word "bag" is in "garbage".
- Paul: Which is best known for bringing you luck? He picks the three-leaf clover, but it was the 13. He didn't say what kind of luck.
- Chelsea: Which whirred Cannes ewe reed allowed inn too weighs? She goes with "moped"... right for $625 to the brawns' $380.

- $1000 (Paul vs. Paula): Touch the straight line that, if extended, would cut a kite exactly in half. Both sides are wrong going with lines on the kite. The orange kite had a straight LINE. As in the one you would grab.
- $2500 (Ariel vs. Chelsea): Touch the country that spells a different country if you remove one S. Chelsea went with "Countries of the World"... Panic. Ariel.... went with Australia. If you remove one S from Indonesia, you get... India! (INDONE SIA - ONE S? Get it?) Brains win, $625-$380!

- Touch the frame that contains tan even number of animals. Ariel touches the entire picture. Chelsea...touches the same frame. There are six pictures, each one with an odd number of animals. If you add six odd numbers... you get an EVEN NUMBER! PAY THOSE LADIES THAT MONEY, $10,000!

In the nightcap, Inna & Ben (dating) lead Hydeia & Miles (married), $260 to $120. The $1000 H2H: touch the two-headed coin. The quarter has two heads on it: George Washington and the eagle. Hydeia runs out of time. Inna adds $50. The $2500 H2H: which shape on the graph makes this equation true: _ix = 6. Ben went with a 0, which is what they get, zero. Miles hits the hyperbola. That's also wrong. It was the S-curve. Inna & Ben win, $310-$120.

SMART MONEY: logically which number below goes next in this sequence - 9 5 6 5 4 4 2 4 ?: 0, 1, 4, 6, 8. Ben touches the 9. Why. Inna runs out of time. Let's play the counting game. Count the letters in each word, the answer is 8. No more money, but they leave with $310.

1) Nate Marks: 51,501 (LOCK)
2) Steve Greene: 51,500 (LOCK)
2) Justin Shibilski: 50,500 (LOCK)
This is it. The absolute last chance to get a spot in the inaugural Sports Jeopardy! Championship. It's either going to Justin Shibilski (sitting on 50,500) or one of these three.
AJ Deimling
San Jose
venture capital analyst
Maximillian Young
orig. Chicago

Keith Miller
Las Vegas

In the owner's box today: Kelly's parents!

AJ gets the draw and will pick first with 250 NFL. At the TV timeout, Keith has the lead with 2750 to the others' 1750 a pop.

As noted, Nate Marks (sitting on 51,501) and Steve Greene (51,500) are locked into the Championship. They await either Justin Shibilski or whoever can match or beat him.

AJ finds the Toshiba Daily Double under 1000 Letterman. He's making it true on this: in 1985 Dave said this guy tipped the scale at 304 lbs. & that he was the heaviest man to score a TD off a set play. "Who is William 'The Fridge' Perry?" FOR THE DOUBLER, 6500! He ends with that much to 4750 for Keith. Maximillian has 4000 and the first clue to kick off Double Jeopardy!...

... with 500 Get Schooled with Neil DeGrasse Tyson, presented by the noted astrophysicist, finding the first Daily Double under 750 I Played for Dean Smith (C-Note: no stress, but if you get this wrong, you don't want to know me). He wants to milk this for all the cheese. The clue: in an '82 "Big Game" he picked off an errant pass by Georgetown with 7 seconds left to clinch Coach's first NCAA title. "Who is James Worthy?" Big Game James doubles him up to 8000! AJ finds the other under 1500 Alphabetically Last Team Nicknames. He's making it true again.... in all the NHL. "Who are the... " Wild. The Minnesota Wild. He couldn't convert, so back to zero he goes. He recovers 1000 to Keith's 10,250. Maximillian is out in front with 13,500.

What this means is that Justin Shibilski will return next week to play for $50,000, as no one can mathematically catch him today.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Baseball Oddities": recently retired, this Cardinal was the first player since Babe Ruth to win 10 games & hit 50 home runs. Correct response: who is Rick Ankiel?

With a wave and a smile and a hi, mom, Maximillian maxes out to win $5000.

Next week, Nate Marks, Steve Greene, and Justin Shibilski. Three titans of sports trivia, but only one can be the champion.
