Yonatan Cooper

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Basketball: Traveling, These Kids Nowadays, 2006, Ice Men, Listen Up!, Managing to Get By

Earl starts at the bottom, 1000 Managing to Get By... the Daily Double for the round. Way to make everyone's job easy. He bets the max level on this: except for 1994, this National League manager won his division every year from 1991 to 2005. "Who is Bobby Cox?" Didn't even have to think about it. He's up 1000. By the half, he's up 10,000 (which, after the break, is corrected to 9000) to 2000 for Yonatan. Aaron has 750 and the first pick in ...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Dynasty, The 1964 Tokyo Olympics, Super Mario, "S" Words, Don't Mess with the Bulls, Get the Horns

... with 500 Don't Mess with the Bulls. Earl finds the first Daily Double under 1000 Dynasty. He makes it 2000 to go on this: this guard seen here finished his career with a bang; he won rings in 5 of his 6 last seasons as a Laker and Bull. "Who is Ron Harper?" RIGHT for 13,000! He also finds the other under 1500 The 1964 Tokyo Olympics. He can make it a self-described "Pokemon" (i.e. catching them all) if he's right for 1000 on this: a newly allowed fiberglass one of these helped Fred Hansen clear 16 feet 9 inches for Gold. "What is a pole?" A
POKEMON FOR 20,000! He ends up with 23,500. With Aaron at 3250 to Yonatan's 2000, it's Earl's clinic to lose.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Pro Football Olympians": he was the first Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee who was also an Olympic medalist. Correct response: who is Jim Thorpe?

It's all academic here, but Earl is wrong. Doesn't matter as the Duke of Earl wins another $5000. bringing his total to $15,000 for three.

The good news: since this show tapes in the afternoon, there's no idea of what went on during the final (C-Note: thank. God.) Presidential Debate. The bad news... since this show tapes in the afternoon, there's no idea of what went on during the debates. The better news... we have the cast of "Those Who Can't" on truTV. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #PoliticalFoods. Adam, thanks to a two-fer, leads with 1100. Ben has 800 to Andrew's 600.

Next up, we go into Basic Straining (how-to guides) and tonight's Live Challenge, Easy Does It. Make your own how-to video. Andrew's video gets him 1000.

Getting back into debates with Speed Debating. Andrew is voted out.

FTW: what's a message that you might get on the "RichKids" photo-sharing app for rich kids? The winner: "Sup Bro! Paid two drifters to fight for my amusement and one died. Ha Ha Ha! Adderall! Anyway, can I bury it in your father's private golf course? My dad's is full!" that goes to ADAM!

Tomorrow's funny makes for the game on Thursday. Continue the game online @midnight.

However, all the R's are now ZONK SPACES and if he lands on the R, he is out. He goes on and lands on the A and $900 more. He has $2,100.

  Paul Zerdin (Las Vegas, NV) - Ventriloquist; America's Got Talent season 10 winner
Charity: Make-A-Wish Foundation - Southern Nevada
(+1): His friend, Nicholas

He gets help from the audience at $1,000 and the 50:50 at $3,000. Eventually, he gets to this...

By definition, "prestidigitation" and "legerdemain" are two fancy words that can be used to describe what practice in the world of magic?
A: Levitation
B: Mentalism
C: Escapology
D: Sleight of hand

Paul was under the impression that those words simply meant "magic." He originally started out as a magician, and he's leaning towards D, but he's not sure. He calls on Nicholas, whose initial thought was D. Paul goes with that... and they're both right! That is it for today; Paul will return tomorrow!
