  Returning champions the Rodgers family are going to let their bad luck set aside and now focus on playing against the Gardner family, who are also returning champions due to a technical dispute and can win the Ford Fusion Hybrid, if they get the win today.

Kendrick, Carlton, Lenore, Robert, Anthony
Powder Springs, GA
Lorie, Jimmy, Kathy, Kristi, Jeffrey
Douglasville, GA

SINGLE: you never want to shake hands with someone right after they do what?
1. Whiz/Shoot a dooky45   5. Lick it 3
2. Pick nose/Sneeze 39    6. Scratch butt 2
3. Cough 4
4. Eat/BBQ Ribs 4

SINGLE: something that might be full of holes. (#1 answer was a stumper for both families.)
1. Swiss cheese 40        5. Colander/Strainer 8
2. Clothes/Socks 16       6. Golf course 2
3. Alibi/Story 14         7. Screen 2
4. Net/Fishing net 9      8. Road/Street 2

DOUBLE: something the Easter bunny would hate to run out of the night before Easter.
1. Easter eggs 63         5. Energy 2
2. Candy 22
3. Egg dye 8
4. Baskets 2

TRIPLE: something that's described as well built.
1. Car/Truck 42
2. Person/Muscles 32
3. House/Building 19
4. Tractor/Mower 3

The Gardners had to get #4 on the last survey in order to steal and win a new car. It wasn't furniture, so they won't get the car and the Rodgers win another game.

Kendrick & Carlton will try Fast Money again with roles reversed. Carlton had a couple of light answers, but the last two was a good recovery to get 103. Kendrick's last answer of lawyer as a profession you'd like your child to go into, fell two points short. They have to try again next time with an additional $990.

Fast Money #1 answers
- 100 men: How many pairs of underwear did you buy last year?: 6 (Kendrick)
- Something in your kitchen what's white: Refrigerator (Carlton)
- A food that's too smelly to bring on a plane: Cheese
- An animal that gives birth to a lot of babies at one time: Dog (Kendrick)
- A profession you'd like your child to go into: Doctor (Carlton)

In the nightcap, the Wardlaw family of all guys may need to write a song about how Fast Money is harder than it looks, but before they do so they need to play against the Rosado family, who played before but got a second chance after a technical dispute.

The Wardlaws took control on the first three boards, but the Rosados took control on the last survey and made the sweep to play sudden death.

Sudden death question: Name a reason why a man who doesn't like his wife doesn't want to get a divorce. Wardlaws get in first, and say it's the children. That's wasn't the reason, as the Rosados won it by saying it's all about $$$/Half everything (68).

Cousins Mario & Rick will now get to play Fast Money. Mario was off to a slow start, thinking people have extra time to shave in the morning, but the other answers got him 153. Rick would get it done in three to win them their two-day total of $20,000.

Pete Holmes
Ron Funches
Steve Rannazzisi

While your dog was busy being distracted by food at a dog show, we were going over the middle-of-the-week Rapid Refresh. Tonight's #HashtagWars: because a man had a Missed Connection on Craigslist, #BadMissedConnection. Ron leads with 700 to Pete's 600. Steve is on the board with 400.

Next up, Vine-O's (drunks on Vine) and Local Man (another riff on the local news). Tonight's Live Challenge: Bearly Suitable for Children! "Paddington Bear" has a moving coming out. The Britons give it a PG rating. Give us the inappropriate line that offended the censors. The 1000 went to Steve for "I came to London to do two things: eat marmalade and (freak ladies). And I'm fresh out of marmalade."

Speed Un-dating rounds us out in regulation. We end up having a mutual agreed-upon un-coupling with Pete. Much like TBS earlier this year.

FTW: from Australia: "Pig in Australia Steals 18 Beers from Campers, Gets Drunk, Fights Cow". Give a follow up for after the pig gets his stuff together. The winner... "Pig quits drinking, reunites with family, vows to just smoke wee-wee-weed all the way home from now on." And because he's been on all night, RON FUNCHES WINS THE INTERNET AGAIN!

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

Midweek madness starts off with a couple. Suzanne/Michael(graduates) fit the bill. Michael starts being the boss of the deal. Will he take the $50 on the outside bankroll or the small box?

The statements are: ACCORDING TO CNN, THE AVERAGE COST OF A WEDDING IN THE UNITED STATES IN 2013, WHAT THE CREATOR OF THE NIKE SWOOSH SYMBOL WAS ORIGINALLY PAID FOR HER DESIGN, TOTAL SPENT TO FINISH THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING'S CONSTRUCTION IN 1931, and AMOUNT PAID IN 2013 TO ACQUIRE ICONIC HOSTESS BRANDS. Evelyn says $29,858 was the wedding, $35 for the swoosh, $24M+ for the Empire State and $410M for the Hostess Brands! She is CORRECT all the way through! She has $2,000! NOW, if she wants to, she can put the MONEY IN THE BANK. One vault has 1/2x, one has 2x and one has 5x. The other two have zonks. If she is right, she could walk away with $10,000! Evelyn decides to keep her cash! For fun she would have had put it in 3 and it was ZONK. 2 had the X5!

Clayton Williams, Anecia Wills, Walter Landreth & Emily Moran kick off this Hump Day Price with a set of cookware. The $900 cookware goes to Emily, who gets to cook in Fiji (6n @ Kulu Bay Resort) if she connects the Secret X. Freebie goes top right. She gets another from a $49 electric kettle. That goes bottom left. So we're looking for the middle.... and we GET IT!

Walter picks up a $700 internet radio with speakers. How will he fare with a $995 grill, a $2585 set of Valentinos, and $3398 washer/dryer? Depends if he can spot the 1 Wrong Price. He goes with the shoes... $2585. The grill was $1599.

Marc Winer goes down and up thanks to a $570 set of underwater camcorders with wrist remotes. Child's play. A Chevy Cruze, a Dodge Journey, and a Ford F-150... TRIPLE PLAY. First, the Cruze, $17,890 or $20,192. He picks $17,890... YES ($18,670). Here comes the Dodge, $18,395, $20,499, or $21,810. He says $21,810... NO. It was $20,990.

The sole winner of the half is the sole winner at the Wheel, as Emily moves on. Meanwhile, Sara Spencer wins a $2140 Galaxy phone, Gear watch & service for both. Now get healthy with a home gym, sauna & dinner for a year in Hi-Lo. Lowest in the Hi-Row: $2.59 for Country Crock spread. Solo plastic plates... $4.29.

Santiago Alvarez gets a $1204 set of cakeware with a sideboard & lamp... and a shot at a pair of Honda scooters in Flip Flop. It wasn't $8689. He flip flops... and $6898 is a winner!

Anecia and Clayton have the last-bid last-chance with a Macbook Air. Price: $1259. Winner... ANECIA! Now can she translate that into a Kia Forte? Only if she knows when That's Too Much! She thinks $19,910 is Too Much, and That's... WAY too much. It was $18,405; $18,662 is too much.

Santiago sets up a Clash of the Titans Showcase with Emily. First up, we're going glamping with high-end camping equipment, a firepit table, and an outdoor TV... to take to the Maldives (6n). Top winner Emily... not an outdoor girl. She passes, and Santiago bids $19,000. Emily gets to visit American treasures with trips to Mount Rushmore (6n @ Rapid City, SD) & Niagara Falls (6n @ The Barton Hill Hotel) and a Hyundai Veloster Flex Ecoshift. He bids $22,000. Actual price: $33,298, a difference of $11,298. Actual price of Santiago's Showcase... $23,347, a game-winning difference of $4347, giving him $31,449 for the day!

1) Alex DeFrank: 22,001
2) Neeraj Joshi: 16,999

Steven Silverman's shot at $50,000 could be in .... jeopardy? The score to beat: 14,499. . 
Justin Rosenberg

Mike Smargiassi

driver's ed & phys.ed. teacher
Bryan Robinson
orig. Virginia Beach, VA
night stocker

Justin birdied on the third hole in the makeshift putt-putt backstage, so he will pick first amongst the wares of the 31-Emmy strong J! team... and Howie Schwab... with 250 Multi-Sport Athletes, finding the Bass Pro Shops Daily Double under 500 NHL Lines. He's got 1000 on it with this: this team's Triple Crown Line: Taylor, Dionne, Simmer. "Who are the Los Angeles Kings?" Right for 2500! At the half, he leasd with a healthy 6500 to Bryan's 3250. Mike, who got a picture of the bratwurst before knowing it was DP inside, has 2000 and the board to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with 500 Men's College Basketball, where he finds the first Daily Double under 1000. He's feeling the True Daily Double on this: only Bob Knight, Mike Krzyzewski & this coach who bleeds Orange have 900+ Division 1 wins. "Who is Jim Baheim?" FOR THE DOUBLER, 5000, en route to a sweep with 8500! Justin finds the other Daily Double under 1500 That's Bizarre. Leading by a G, he goes four deep on this: this sport sounds like you need a partner, but Kristen Babb-Sprague took solo gold at the 1992 Summer Olympics. "What is synchronized swimming?" Pulled that out of nowhere for 13,500! He ends up with 19,000 to Mike's 12,500. Bryan's still in it with 4250.

Remember, the magic number this week: 14,499. J-Rose's already eclipsed it.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Sports Films": these 2 movies with a player's & a coach's names in their titles are among the handful ever filmed at Notre Dame. Correct response: what are "Rudy" & "Knute Rockne: All-American"?

Mike is right, meaning that Steven's going off the board this week, but who will take his place? It is... MIKE! He's the only one with the correct response to win $5000 and be in the running for the Big Game At The End. Justin leaves with $2000, while Bryan gets a grand.

But it's not all smiles and money, because 16,501 will buy you the Danger Zone, my friend.

  Kevin Jonas - Musician
Charity: Artists for Peace and Justice
(+1): His building partner, Bill Werner

He calls on Bill for the 1st question, and that help gives him $500. He asks the audience on the 5th, but the vote is too close, so he jumps it, leaping over $7,000. His total stands at $47,600 going into this...

Susannah Jones celebrated her 115th birthday in 2014, having been alive for all of these events, except for which?
A: First MLB World Series
B: Wright Bros.' famous Kitty Hawk flight
C: Empire State Building's construction
D: Edison patenting the phonograph

Kevin eliminates A; he then narrows it down to B or D. He wants to say D, but he is playing for charity, so he walks with $23,800 for Artists for Peace and Justice! As for the answer, it is indeed D!

Barbara Corcoran - "Shark Tank"
Charity: The Dyslexia Foundation
(+1): Her friend, Bruce

She goes right to her Plus One on the 1st question, and gets $1,000 from it. That is all for today; Barbara returns tomorrow!
