Justin gets to kick it off with 250 That Venue Went Out with a Bang. At the TV timeout, it's a tie ballgame between Justin and Dan, 1500 a pop. Scott, after a venture into the deep, is back in the black with.... nothing.

No beautiful losers on this week's Joe Dirt 2 Leaderboard. The line is 44,500, currently held by Chris Yoxsimer. Another important number: 3. If Justin Shibilski can hold onto the top spot for three more games, this one included, he will return to the Man Cave to play for $50,000 and the Friedman Cup.

Scott finds the Daily Double under 1000 The Leaders & Best. He bets 800 on this: well, hot him! This US skier giant slalom-ed his way to gold at Sochi in 2014. He blanks on Ted Ligety, dropping him to 450. He recovers to 1450, but with Dan on 4500 to Justin's 2750, it'll be all hands on deck for Scott as he starts Double Jeopardy!...

... with 500 On Ice, finding the first Daily Double under 2000 TV Personalities. He goes for the level on this: this college football analyst who died in 2012 got his nickname shortly after he moved from Boston. He blanks again on Beano Cook, dropping him to 2950. Dan finds the other under 2000 7-Letter Birds (players with 7 letters in their last name who play for avian-named squads). He's swinging for the fences on this: this QB came from Arizona State to lead the Arizona Cardinals to their first playoff victory. "Who is Jake Plummer?" FOR THE DOUBLER, 19,000! He ends with 22,500 off of a response on Apolo Ohno (C-Note: when in doubt, Apolo Ohno). With Justin on 77500 to Scott's 4450, the game is Dan's to lose, but like he said... he's playing for the Finals. A wager 22,001 and a correct response will send him there.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Boxing"... as delivered by former welterweight champion of the world, Victor Ortiz ("Southpaw", which he is in with Jake Gyllenhaal, hits theatres this Friday): "In the welterweight division, where Mayweather, Pacquiao & I have held titles, the upper weight limit is this many pounds." Correct response: what is 147 lbs.?

It's go big or go home for Dan. He is right with 147.... and he WENT FOR IT! He takes over third place on the leaderboard, sending Chris Yoxsimer back to Sylmar, CA with $5000. The new number to beat: 45,000.

Four to go.

Ashley Williams
Adam Goldberg
Jade Catta-Preta

While you were busy having beef on the Internet, real or fake, we were beefing on the day in pop culture news with the cast of "The Jim Gaffigan Show" on TV Land. Tonight's #HashtagWars: to celebrate (?) the premiere of "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!", #SharkMovies. Adam leads with 1000 to the ladies' 800 a piece.

Mid-show, we get Most Goodtimes with Translations of Films from Foreigns and an @midnight classic: Photobombs: Creepy or Cute? Tonight's Live Challenge: Textbuster. Sony's making an emoji movie. Pitch one to us. Ashley gets 1000 for something she's calling "The Rachel Dolezal Story".

We speed it up with The Little Prince (Happy Birthday George). We have another case of first-to-worst. Sorry, Jade.

FTW: new Jaden Smith motivational video. Write an inspired truism on this crazy thing called life. The winner: "There's a door to the universe and each of us is born with a key to its lock. One need only reach into his or her pocket to find it. And if it is not there, ask your dad, Will Smith." Way to totally check out at the end there, Ashley. ADAM WINS THE INTERNET!

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

Reece & Nathalie
Miles & Jordan

- Reece/Nathalie: Find the largest whisker. They go with the one in the dog's mouth... RIGHT for $180.
- Miles/Jordan: Da Vinci made the Mona Lisa. Who made the van go? It was the driver of said van for $200.
- R/N: Touch the license plate that's definitely the dirtiest. They go with the one with the dirt all over it, HOLE N 1 for another $20 to tie it at $200.
- M/J: Which head is biggest. It's the biggest beer head for another $180 to lead, $380-$200.

- Nathalie: touch the two ass-less chaps. She touches the two asses instead.
- Jordan: touch "D1 B4 C3". Read that out loud... "The one before C3." It's B2 for $125.
- Reece: find this square. He goes for the one he's pointing at for $200 more to double his score.
- Miles: facing jail, Bill turns his life around 360 degrees. Where is he headed now? He's heading back to jail for $275 to lead, $780 to $400.

- Nathalie vs. Jordan: There's an "I" in this TEAM. Touch it. Nathalie gets $200 for the negative space in the A.
- Reece vs. Miles: Press the shortest line from start to finish. Reece beats Miles to the punch to win, $2800 to $2780.

- Touch Lynn's mother's father's son's sister's daughter. Reece misses with Susan. Nathalie runs out of time. Correct... Lynn.

In the nightcap, roomies Stanson & Glencie leads coworkers Jennifer & Tamara $425 to $160. The $1000 test: Touch who painted the famous painting below. It's Van Gogh's self-portrait, so it would be the painting itself. Glencie is right ($1165). The $2500 test: Touch the 20-second picture below. Both touch the 20-second timer... but Stanson wins it for his team, $3365 to $2160.

SMART MONEY: in Always Be Clothing, touch the item below that logically goes above the question mark: shoes, hat, gloves, or shorts. The signs say dress, ear muffs, flannel, ?. A, B, C, D, E, F, Gloves. Glencie is right. Stanson says... shoes. But they do get a total of $4365.

  It's Alex's birthday on the show, and Scott's hoping for another big present.
Scott Lord

Santa Monica, CA
construction attorney
Brianne Archer
Bellflower, CA
environmental engineer
Kris Dages
Austin, TX
software engineer

Scott starts with $200 Your Old Records. Kris finds the Daily Double under $800 Oxford Dictionary Words of the Year. He maxes out on this: for 2007, the honor went to this word for one who eats food grown or produced nearby. "What is a locavore?" RIGHT to tie Scott with $1800! He leads going into the half with $5600, but not by much! Scott is on his heels with $5400. Brianne has $800, but she'll pick first in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Female Nobel Prize Winners. Scott finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Jules Verne. He bets $3000 on this: during her 72-day trip around the world, 1889-90, she stopped in Amiens to visit with Verne, who had inspired her trip. "Who is Queen Victoria?" No, it was Nellie Bly, dropping him to $4000. Second Daily Double goes unclaimed, as Kris and Brianne end up tied with $5600. But on $15,600, the game is Scott's to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Military History": this country smaller than England was a colonial rival with which England fought 4 wars, the last from 1780 to 1784. Correct response: what is the Netherlands?

Kris is right, but it's a moot point. Scott gets another $18,000, giving him $73,401 for three.
