Today's the corporate service special. You'll see why in a bit.

Cara & Darrel
friends (and substitute girlfriend)
Precious & Robert
friends; he's a personal trainer, she's a dancer
Jonathan Mangum
"Let's Make a Deal"
Wayne Brady
"Let's Make a Deal"

... because this show is also produced by FremantleMedia.

ROUND 1: Cara & Darrel start with "Movin' Up to the Big Leagues!" (celebrities who've owned a piece of a pro sports team), getting three for $300. Precious & Robert hope to match with "Do People Still Use These?" (people, places or things on postage stamps), getting three of their own for $300. And for the record, anyone who pays bills can tell you, YES.

ROUND 2: Precious gives on "Super Stars" (famous names with the initials "SS"), getting only Silver Surfer for $200 more, $500 total. Cara goes "All In!" (celebrities who have played in the World Series of Poker), getting trips for $600 more, giving them $900.

Time for Craig to give on "I Am So Total-Lee Famous" (famous names that include "Lee"). After a strong start, Precious & Robert falter, giving Cara & Darrel the game, $3300 to $1700.

In the Bonus Round, Cara picks up a fault on "Death Star" (she said "Star"), but picks up three on route. Darrel can only come up with "Fiji" and "Victoria Beckham" for five total.

In the nightcap (featuring Aisha Tyler & Kevin Nealon), Alex & Damon put one over on baristas Kelley & Brigid by a count of $3700 to $2700. In the bonus, they miss Beck & Tom Selleck.

While you were busy drinking recalled Fireball at a wedding and dressing like a reject of Professor Spacetime... Chris... we were going over the last 24 hours in Rapid Refresh with Broken Lizard on the panel. Tonight's #HashtagWars: because we have the cast of "Super Troopers" on the set... why not, let's do #CatMovies. Steve & Jay are tied with 800 to 700 for Kevin.

While we're packing for NYC, we play Hall-o-What-The--? and Photoshop of Horrors. Tonight's Live Challenge is "In the Zone". Contestants space out in Seoul, South Korea, sitting around and going to a happy race. The most zoned out person after three hours win. A 1000 points goes to the panelist who can go the most into deep space. That would be... JAY.

Next up, it's RegretFinder in celebration of National Cat Day. Jay... obviously not a cat person, as he goes from first to worst to RED LIGHT!

FTW: The NBA tipped off this week, meaning it's time for the leaking of the Los Angeles Lekars knockoff jerseys. Give us a fact about the Los Angeles Lekars. The winning fact: "You can see movie star Jock Nockolson sitting courtside at home games." That gives STEVE the Internet and bragging rights over his best friend.

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

  Returning champions the Gardner family will now be putting their skills to play against the Catone family.
Lorie, Jimmy, Kathy, Kristi, Jeffrey
Douglasville, GA

Tommy, Chris, Kurt, Michael & Molly

SINGLE: 100 men: something you might like about living life as a woman.
1. Boobs/to play with 38   5. Get more sex 5
2. Men paying for me 25    6. Clothes/No tie 5
3. Men wanting me 9        7. Giving birth 3
4. Being manipulative 7

SINGLE: 100 married women: something you find irresistible in a man that unfortunately, your husband doesn't have.
1. Muscles/6-pack 40       5. Nice teeth 6
2. Thick/Long hair 19      6. Brain/Sense 6
3. Money 15
4. Charm/Humor 10

DOUBLE: someone you'd hate to realize you drunk dialed last night.
1. My ex 26                5. 911/Cops 6
2. My mom/dad 18           6. My in-laws 5
3. My boss 17
4. Pastor/The Pope 12

TRIPLE: a term used in a game of bowling.
1. Strike 67
2. Spare 27
3. Pin 3
4. Turkey 2

The Catones thought a split would be a bowling term on a steal, but wasn't up there, as they got the split and the Gardners winning another game.

Kristi & Jeffery will try Fast Money this time. Kristi did well with her answers and got 131. Jeffery had a rough outing, getting gonged three times and $21,435 for three shows.

Fast Money #1 answers
- Give me a word or phrase for someone who just won't shut up: Blabbermouth
- 1-10, rate your pain threshold: 8 (Kristi)
- A food that smells good when it's baking: Cake
- Something people weave: Hair (Kristi)
- When you're on a diet, something you'd do to fight hunger pain: Drink water (Kristi)

In the nightcap, returning champions the Willis family survived a win last time, but let's see if they can do it again against the Bellenfant family. Once again, the Willis family needed a steal on the remaining answer at #3 on the last survey and it was the correct one, giving them another win.

Scott & Holli will try Fast Money again and hope their luck will change. Scott did much better with his answers, including the last answer getting him 127. Holli would get two #1s, getting it done in four answers, and they now have a two-day total of $20,810.

  For the third time in at least a month, we have a pair of champions returning to defend...
Bill Albertini
Toledo, OH
professor of English

Jenica Jessen
Riverton, UT

Ryan Alley
Alexandria, VA
patent attorney

Bill starts with $200 Beverages. Ryan finds the Daily Double under $800 The Long Arm of the Law School. He is going for it on this: White House counsels John Dean & Kathryn Ruemmler went to this law school not far from Pennsylvania Ave. "What is Georgetown?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $3200! He ends up with $6000, tied with Jenica at the half. Bill has -$400 and a lot of work to do starting Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Maltin on Movies (read by Leonard Maltin). Ryan finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Mountains. He bets $2600 on this: German words for "meadow" & "peak" combined to form the name we used to for this alpine mountain. "What is Matterhorn?" Right for $12,200. Bill gets the second under $2000 Initially Yours. He bets the level on this: this Dutch artist created more than 2000 drawings & sketches like the one seen here. "Who is MC Escher?" RIGHT for $4400. He ends up with $6400 to Jenica's $8800. But with $19,800, the game is Ryan's to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "American-Born Authors": in 1915, his reasons for naturalization included having lived & worked in England "for the best part of forty years". Correct response: who is Henry James?

For the second time this season, both champs go down to a new challenger, as Ryan wins $19,600. Bill leaves with $40,750; Jenica, $20,200.

*totals are based on the MSRP of the prizes and rounded to the nearest dollar.
We're over the hump (so to speak), and the race to $3 million begins with Christina Elmore, Andrew Pacura, Deborah Abernathy, and Sterling Griggs bidding on an LG smartphone. With service, it comes to $2140, as Sterling gets to play for a Chevy Spark in Spelling Bee. He gets the two freeballs and two from a $34 pretzel dog maker (C-Note: yummy) & a $16 hair styler. But instead of taking the chance, Sterling takes the sure thing, $4000 in hand. He had an A... a C.... another A... and one of the two CAR cards.

Deborah can help us recover from that with a $1240 kitchen island with cookware. A Sea-Doo can be hers if she wins Side by Side. It's either $8354 or $5483. She goes with $8354... It's no Chevy Spark, but we're back on our way.

Christina wins a $1599 recumbent bike and a shot at an electric guitar, an air hockey, a 3DTV & a pair of watches. The Danger Price: $1600. TV... $3100. Guitar... Red alert! Red alert!

Sterling gets one more shot at it in the Showcase. Meanwhile, Shelley Shiflet goes down and up thanks to a $950 camcorder & camera. She can take them to Calgary (6n @ the Banff Aspen Lodge) if she wins Range Game. She stops it at $6538... and she stopped it too late. It was $6485.

John Morton is the subject of a PLOW, and $1420 is the price for it. He'll try to Stack the Deck for a VW Jetta. The deck: 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. He gets some help with two cards and this price: $__,65_. He goes with $18,659. Right track, wrong train. It was $19,657.

Andrew has the last bid advantage on a pair of beach cruisers (one of which is on the site for you to peruse and perhaps win). The price: $900. The winner... with the perfecto, Michelle Humann. Now the AFB (Air Force Beauty, look it up) gets to play for a grill, a MacBook Pro, and $1076 if she can Do the Math. She wants to subtract the money from the grill. The grill... $3495. The MacBook... $2419!

But Shelley would shift her way into the Showcase. First up, coffee anyone? We have an espresso machine with serveware, a trip to Costa Rica (6n @ Peace Lodge in San Juan), and a Chevy Malibu. Top winner Sterling bids $32,333. Shelley gets to warm up with a living room group, a wall fireplace, a hot tub, and a safari in South Africa (6n @ Cape Town). She bids $22,000. Actual price: $23,578, a difference of $1578. Actual price of Sterling's Showcase... $32,000.... 869! So close to a DSW, but we'll take the win and the $39,059. Could have been so much more, though...

Sports Jeopardy!

Crackle: streaming Wednesdays
Host: Dan Patrick with Kelly Miyahara
Official WebsiteFacebookFacebook

1) Alex DeFrank: 22,001
2) Neeraj Joshi: 16,999
3) Steven Silverman: 14,499

Kenny Chung still has the hot seat all to himself, but that may change in about, oh, 20 or so minutes.
Neeraj Joshi
New York City
attorney & teacher
Daniel Robertson
digital content coordinator
Mark Harmon
Macungie, PA
manager (no, not him)

Neeraj drew the high card at the poker table at the Bike, so he will select first, and he does so with 250 Rough Riders, son. Neeraj finds the Daily Double under 1000 Man in the Arena. With only -250, he bets the max of 1000 on this: you can be the man walking into this arena with your tickets electronically stored on your Parquet Pass. "What is the TD Bank North Garden?" Welcome back to the plus with 750, tied with Daniel. He would still have that 750, but at the end of the round, Daniel & Mark would be tied with 1000 a piece. That, of course, means that Neeraj gets the board to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with 500 Court Defense, finding the first Daily double under 2000 Around the Rink. Having heard more about hockey in the last 10 minutes than ESPN broadcasts on a given day, Neeraj bets 2750 on this: in an NHL rink, it's 89 feet from the center red line to the goal line. So it's this many feet from the goal line to the end boards. "What is... 11 feet?" Pulled that one out of nowhere for 10,000. He finds the other under 2000 Unit Nicknames. Neeraj keeps it level on this: Run TMC: the Warriors' trio of Tim Hardaway, Chris Mullin & this man between them in the early 1990s. "Who is Mitch Richmond?" Mitch Richmond in the house for 13,000. He ends up with 13,5000. With both of his opponents at 5000 a pop, it's Neeraj's game (and spot on the leaderboard) to lose, but as always, remember the total point standings for the season.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Not in the Baseball Hall of Fame": despite holding a single-season batting record for 37 years, this man is not in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Correct response: who is Roger Maris?

Neeraj, who's been money in the bank all day, hits it out of the park and puts the icewater on the game point with 16,999 for $5000 and a spot on the Big Board, sending Kenny home. It doesn't beat Alex DeFrank's total from week 2, so he'll have a couple of weeks at least before he finds himself in Kenny's position. Meanwhile, Daniel leaves with $2000, and Mark takes $1000.
