  Not a spectacularly good match yesterday, but it got Matt another day at Sony.
Matt Pressman

Somerville, MA
graduate student in history
Shayna Kravetz
educator & writer
Pat Devane
orig. Wheaton, IL
graduate student

Matt starts with $200 Anagrammed World. At the TV timeout, Shayna leads with $2800 to $2400 for Matt. Pat has $2000.

Shayna finds the Daily Double under $600 Get Up & Dance! She fronts $1500 on this: swing dances include the Lindy hop & this frenetic one whose name means "a nervous person". "What is the jitterbug?" RIGHT for $5500! She ends up with $6700 to $4600 for Matt. Pat on $3800 will get the first pick in Double Jeopardy!...

...I with $400 It's Hyphenated, where Matt finds the first Daily Double under $1200. He goes for three grand on this: it's a synonym for Old English, spoken before about 1150. "What is Anglo-Saxon?" That would be right, but "middle English" drops him to $2400. Shayna gets the other, the final clue under $2000 Moving Forward in Science. After a line-ruling that drops Pat to $8200, Shayna bets $4000 on this: this verb can mean "to cause to happen" or "to fall from the sky", the way snow does. "What is precipitate?" RIGHT for $18,700 to Matt's $15,200!

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "World Leaders in the News": iin 2014 CNN declared Zambia's Guy Scott the first white president in Sub-Saharan Africa since this man in 1994. Correct response: who is FW de Klerk?

Some of them are lucky that spelling doesn't count. Shayna is right... but for the love of $2, she'll come just shy of the champ, who gets $22,200 more, giving him a two-day take of $36,000.

While you were busy making your case for Worst Journalist of 2015... Don Lemon... we were looking for other news to troll on. Tonight's #HashtagWars: because skinny jeans are deadly... #3WordFashionAdvice. Hampton has 800 to Cameron's 700. Todd has 600.

In the middle of the week, we get to play... (BLANK) Had Me Like. Tonight's Live Challenge: Voyeur Enjoyment. A new site called gives Europeans a chance to watch 10 couples LIVE. Rise above the noise and tell the world why they should tune into your live stream. Cameron gets 1000 from "Watch my livestream to see what lesbians REALLY do together: (schtupp) all over the house in a very satisfying way with no consequence."

Rounding third with The Pleasure Is Mine. It was a pleasure to have Todd on the show, but now he must leave.

FTW: There's a machine that will print anything on your latte. ANYTHING. So print something you don't want to find on your coffee. The winner: ... for the second show in a row is something we can't print. Just give CAMERON the Internet.

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

Lawrence & Julian
Sonya & Dustin

- Lawrence & Julian: Who's renting the most equipemnt. The rental lady makes them an easy $200.
- Sonya & Dustin: If these agencies lose their space, which one will become theirs? They touch "The IRS" ... for $140.
- L&J: Which came first: the chicken or the egg? They touch the farmer... and it's right for $20!
- S&D: The ball is definitely under one of these. Which one? They go with the table... But it's under the lady.

Lawrence & Julian lead, $220-$140.

- Dustin: These are old coins. Where's the rust? He goes for the nickel... but "rust" was on the quarter.
- Lawrence: How many brews can this brewhouse sell? He times out on the condemned sign. Answer: 0.
- Sonya: Touch the one who definitely has a boring job. She goes for the driller... RIGHT for $350!
- Julian: Touch what he would read in his reflection if he turned the mirror upside down. He goes with EEWWOW. But the right answer was on his shirt.

Sonya & Dustin lead, $490-$220.

- Julian vs. Dustin: Touch the person whose comment comes from only the top row of the keyboard. "UR Witty" is wrong. "#@%*&!" is right.
- Sonya vs. Lawrence: Touch the color of the fewest arrows. Lawrence went with blue... RIGHT for $1400, $1620 total. Sonya... also touched blue! She & Dustin win, $2190 to $1620!

- Touch the town square: bank, nuclear plant, residential, university. Sonya touches the total of the town. Dustin... touches the center. The only town square on this map... is in the word "Town". No extra money, but they have $2190.

In the nightcap, friend Jordan & John take on girlfriends Clay & Kim. Ladies lead, $875 to $140.

- Touch the pattern that's least likely to help win the game. Kim says the middle pattern with nothing going on. But the correct answer: the coach's plaid shirt. Jordan closes the gap with another $550.
- From the right perspective, which is the crying man? Clay is wrong. John... is right to win, $2490 to $875.

SMART MONEY: Based on his tattoos, what should he get tattooed on his ear? Moustache, anchor, beer, or heart? Jordan says the anchor. John says the anchor as well. All of his tattoos rhyme with the part they're tattooed on, so the correct answer: beer.

So TPIR is preparing to close out regular season play with a Sweet 16 party. I wish I could've played TPIR for my 16th birthday... and my 17th... and my 18th... and my... well, you get it. For details, follow the show on Instagram @therealpriceisright.

Meanwhile, we have grown-folk Tommy Stancil, Haley Morgan, Rosalyn Stephens, and Charles Bauza playing for Gucci accessories. The $2643 package goes to Tommy, who can ride outta here with a Toyota Corolla in Lucky Seven. The board reads $19,8__ with a buck in hand. He goes with 5.... but it's 2.

Charles will try to parlay the $708 pair of laptops he won into a trip to Santa Fe (6n @ El Dorado Hotel & Spa) with a DSLR camera in Safecrackers. The dials: 0, 7, 9. He goes with $790... but it was $970.

Tiffany Grim hopes to turn around this grim state with a $1515 shuffleboard table. Things are already looking up for her... IT'S PLINKO TIME! With chips from Drew, a $28 travel mug, and a $50 cotton candy maker, she wins $600.

But Charles wins the first Showdown of what's turning out to be a company show... All about making money for the company. Let's continue on with Rosalyn and her $599 home theatre system. That will go well with a new living room with 3DTV, and it'll all go to her if she knows whether she's Coming ($7899) or Going ($9987). She comes... and saves us from the skunk.

Kindra Torres gets a $930 area rug with Roomba and a chance at a Hyundai Accent in One Away. It isn't $28,765. She goes with $17,674, and the soundboard goes with... three honks. Next guess is $17,876, which sounds good... It was $17,854.

Haley is living on borrowed time as we lay out on a hammock. The price: $890. The winner... Frank Brenha. Next up, three prizes that go well together: a meat thermometer, a cutlery set, and an outdoor kitchen island. The game: Make Your Move.

5 9 2 6 9 4 2 3 7

He goes with $59 for the thermometer, $269 for the cutlery set, and $4237 for the grill island. And... he got it backwards. It should've been $37 for the thermometer, $942 for the cutlery set, and $5926 for the grill island. He'll get a shot against Charles in the Showcase.

First up, we'll color your world with and emerald/diamond pendant and trips to Mexico (6n @ Le Reve Hotel & Spa) & Spain (6n @ Barcelona). Top winner Frank passes, and Charles bids $17,995. Frank gets a smart watch with smart phone & Bluetooth headset, a trip to Montenegro (6n @ Hotel Mediteran Uncinj), and a Nissan Versa. He bids $25,550. Actual price: $30,705, a difference of $5155. Actual price of Charles' Showcase: $26,359, a difference of $8364, and the gold star goes to Frank! He takes out $31,595!

1) Justin Shibilski: 50,500
2) Sean Sullivan: 48,499
3) Chris Yoxsimer: 44,500

Mark it down, people. We are now 11 episodes away from the Sports Jeopardy! Championship! And after week after week of people challenging for the leaderboard, a relative calm. Time and chances are running out.
Cody Liverance
North Muskegon, MI
facility student supervisor
Ron Niv
Los Angeles
real estate broker
Deepak Tamasker
orig. Cleveland

Cody was the first out of the bullpen, so he'll lead off with 250 Teams That Don't End in "S", finding the Hanes X-Temp Daily Double under 750. Thanks to a score correction benefiting Deepak, he & Cody are tied at 1250. Cody pulls the trigger for all the marbles on this: this NBA Western Conference team & this NHL Eastern Conference team make a neat weather pair. "What are the Suns & the Lightning?" Got the Tampa Bay Lightning right, but the other team was the Oklahoma City Thunder. Get it? Thunder? Lightning?

As we look at the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee leaderboard, Chris Yoxsimer is still on the bubble with 44,500. The players... not even close at the half, but Deepak leads with 3750 to 2250 for Cody. Ron... who's just entertaining to watch, is 750 down to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with the first Daily Double under 1500 Boxing Stuff. He goes for max on this: in the 10-point must system, a boxer who's knocked down one in a losing round usually receives this many points. "What is 8 points?" Out of the hole you go with 1250. Deepak finds the Dead Rising Daily Double, 1500 The Trophy Case. Leading by 2000, he puts an extra 500 on it for this: this award is given annually to the best offensive MLB player at each position. "What is the Silver Slugger?" RIGHT for 11,250! He ends up with 17,750. With Cody on 7250 to Ron's 750, the game is Deepak's to lose. And Chris' seat is still Chris'.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Basketball Coaches": he wa the first African-American coach to win a Division I NCAA basketball championship. Correct response: who was John Thompson?

Deepak gets the $5000 on a zero-wager game.

Joining DP and the players in the booth today: SJ! CC and Regular-People Jeopardy! Clue Crew member Jimmy McGuire. Words of wisdom: "You can't study for Jeopardy!"... You really can't.

And then there were 10.
