Ben & Bobo
best friends
Molly & Jessica
Busy Phillipps
"Cougar Town"
Kathryn Hahn
"This Is Where I Leave You"

Round 1: Ben & Bobo start with "'Guide' & Seek" (people & characters who've appeared on the cover of TV Guide), getting four for $400. Molly & Jessica counter with "I Wanna Rock!" (celebrities who have acted in other people's music videos), getting four as well for $400.

After we swap stars, Molly gives on "Third Time's a Charm?" (folks that have been married at least 3 times), getting another four for $800, $1200 total. Bobo gives on "Roll Tide Roll" (famous folks from Alabama), getting two for $400, $800 total.

In the race to $3000, we have "Put a Bow on It!" (famous folks known for wearing bow-ties). Surprisingly, "Doctor Who" is not mentioned once. But Jessica & Molly mention Pee-Wee Herman, Boo-Boo, Donald Duck, and Snagglepuss to win, $3000 to $1800.

In the $20,000 bonus, Molly gets five... and Jessica... only gets four.

In the nightcap (featuring Tom Arnold & Mel B), newlyweds Rori & Roz beat out Christopher & Candy $3700 to $2200, but they only get five in the bonus.

  Returning champions the Byrd ladies had some bad luck last time, but they hope their luck will change when they play against the Barutha family.
Dan, Michelle, Megan, Daniel, Princess
San Diego
Crystal, Kimberly, Darla, Cathy, Arianna
Akron, OH


SINGLE: 100 married men: something about your wife you'd get in trouble for telling other people.
1. Weight/Meas'ments40  5. Hygiene habits 5
2. She snores 18        6. Bad temper 4
3. Her age 14           7. Eye-watering farts 3
4. Freak/Sex life 9     8. Fake boobs 3

SINGLE: something you wouldn't want to see in the stream that you just drank from.
1. Float'g doody/pee 43 5. Condom/Dink sling 3
2. Body/Dead animal 31
3. Gator/Critter 8
4. Glass/Cups 4

DOUBLE: something a department store Santa has within reach when he's working.
1. Candy/Canes 37       5. Hand wipe/Tissue 6
2. Elf/Helper 21        6. Water 5
3. Flask/Vodka shots 6  7. Children 4
4. Sack of toys 6

TRIPLE: something supermodels don't do as much as ordinary people.
1. Eat/Cook 76
2. Work 7
3. Housework/Laundry 5
4. Their own makeup 2

The Baruthas would need only a steal on the last survey to get either #2 or #4 to win the game and they did so, getting #4 for that victory.

Michelle & Dan will go and play for Fast Money. Michelle gave out a few good answers and end up scoring 76. Dan started off slow, getting two zeroes off the bat and his last answer was only one that was the best of the bunch, finishing with a total of $655.

Fast Money #1 answers
- 100 married women: 1-10, how cheap is your husband?: 4
- Something that spits: Camel (Michelle)
- Something that's sold by the bunch: Banana (Michelle)
- Something people do that rhymes with sigh: Cry
- Something in the hospital you hope is clean: Bed sheets (Dan)

In the nightcap, returning champions the Reed family knew how hard it is to win the big money, but they hope they can get another shot, but right now, they must play against the O'Hara family.

TRIPLE: something that's impossible to hide from a dog.
1. Food/Treats 62
2. A bone 24
3. Toys 10
4. A cat 2

The O'Haras couldn't get the steal to #4 on the last survey, thinking it was the dog's bed, giving the Reeds another win.

Rebecca & Patsy will play Fast Money in this attempt. Rebecca had some good answers to get to 102. Patsy's last answer of liver, was enough to do it, and they now have a two-day total of $20,500.

  A win today, and Alexander enters the tournament talk.
Alexander Persaud

orig. Dubuque, IA
PhD student in economics
Ali Palmer
Portland, OR
Mike Harwood
Westerly, RI

Alexander starts with $200 Othello. At the TV timeout, Mike leads with $4800 to $2800. Ali has $800.

Mike snipes the Daily Double under $1000 Money Talks with $6800 to the champ's $5400. He bets his lead of $1400 on this: like Annie says, if something's a sure thing, you can do this, put up the last money you have. "What is 'bet your bottom dollar'?" That is right... but Mike times out to tie with $5400. He recovers to $6000 to Alexander's $5400. Ali has $1800 and the first clue in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Take the Stairs, finding the first Daily Double under $2000. She is going for it on this: the Keats-Shelley Memorial House in Rome is located near the foot of these famous stairs. "What are the Spanish Steps?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $6800! Mike gets the other under $1600 Getting in Shape. He bets $2600 on this: it's a diamond-shaped rhombus, or a medicated sore-throat candy. "What is a lozenge?" RIGHT for $16,200. He ends with $18,600 to Alexander's $16,200. Ali's still a factor with $12,000.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Eponymous Geography": named around 1616, it's the world's fifth-largest island & the largest named after a person. Correct response: what is Baffin Island?

Ali is the only one right to come from behind to win $16,300! Alexander leaves with $63,000.

Yesterday gave us one of these...

... Today, let's put that in the rearview mirror and concentrate on Jamie Britt, Peggy Toby, Eugene Byron, and Leanna Morales bidding on a silver/lapis ring & earrings. The $1345 jewelry goes to Jamie, who gets to step up to the plate for a CADILLAC ATS in 3 Strikes. First two pulls... Strikes 1 and 2. Then two whiffers... The 2-2 pitch... is a 4. She puts that in slot #1... Right. The 2-2... a 3... Second? Yes. Next draw... Strike three. It was $43,289.

Eugene wins a $1117 all-in-one PC with desk. Can he compute the price of a waverunner in Squeeze Play?

9 0 8 1 4

He pulls the 0... Needed to pull the 1.

Matthew Popiel (C-Note: no relation that we know of to the inventor) goes down and up thanks to a $939 set of Bluetooth speakers & iPod Touch. Next for him, designer accessories and a pool table in Magic # (C-Note: a notoriously fickle and long-to-warm-up game. Frankly I'm surprised they wheeled it out this early). He sets the geezmo to $941. The pool table... $3295. The accessories... $1595. Well, he can wipe his tears with the $1000 he wins off of the Big Wheel.

Meanwhile Peggy turns $1 into a $1995 infrared sauna. Can she turn a DSLR camera into a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, an electric bike, and an HDTV in Swap Meet? She swaps for the bike... $1199. The camera... $1199!

So we've avoided the skunk at long last. Now to build from that with Elizabeth Slowinski and her $1399 treadmill. For her, we have a trip to Portugal (6n @ Lima Escape in Ponte da Barca) in Pick-a-Number. The price: $_770. The numbers of great importance: 5, 6, 7. She goes with 7... Should've gone with 5.

Last call for Leanna comes with curlers, a curling iron, and a hair dryer. The price: $798. The winner... with the one-time, Gloria Jilek. She'll Let'em Roll for a Hyundai Accent. She gets the full three. First roll... one car, but $5000. That's hard to pass up, and she bails. Gloria then adds another $1000 on the Wheel.

First up in the Showcase, it's getting time for trick-or-treat with a chocolate maker, a gummy bear maker, a cake pop maker, a trip to San Francisco (6n @ The Stanford Court), and a Kia Rio. Top winner Gloria bids $21,500. Matthew gets the good (a hammock), the bad (a Suzuki Boulevard motorcycle), and the ugly (a Mitsubishi Lancer). He bids $26,100. Actual price... $25,469. Actual price of Gloria's Showcase... $20,335. And we have our first Double Overbid of the season and our second "company show" in a row. Not about the prizes, all about making
money for the company.


Sports Jeopardy!

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

1) Alex DeFrank: 22,001
2) Steven Silverman: 14,499
3) Kenny Chung: 12,250

Kenny Chung remains in danger of being eliminated. Let's see who in our starting lineup may take him out.
Dan Gartland
Fairfield, CT
sports writer
Evan Berman
Las Vegas
middle school English teacher & basketball coach
Steve Howell
college professor

(Fun Fact: the most athletic person in the Man-Cave? Kelly, who just completed Ironman Kona and raising $31,000 for Leukemia & Lymphoma Team in Training in honor for her departed teammate and friend Marisela Echevarria. This is all detailed after the first break)

Dan won the single-elimination tiddly-winks tournament backstage, so he will select first with 250 When I Hosted SNL. At the TV timeout, Evan's off to a roaring start with 4250 to Steve's 1750. Dan, perhaps the most low-key player in the history of Jeopardy!, has 750.

A few clues after two snipes by Evan from the Chicago native and one about Psycho T, Tyler Hansbrough, Evan scores the Daily Double under 750 I Own You. He goes four deep, 4000 on this: actress Rooney Mara is named for the founders of these 2 NFL teams that are still in her family. "What are the Cleveland Browns & the Baltimore Ravens?" No and no. "Who are the Steelers & the Giants?" Back to 2000 you go. The Women's Skating category managed to make this into a game going into halftime, with Steve on 2500, Evan on 1750, and Dan on the first pick in Double Jeopardy! with 1500.

Speaking of, Dan goes with 500 In Their Minor League Baseball System, finding the first Daily Double under 1500 Conn Smythe Trophy Winners. He fronts 3000 on this: this goalie is the only 3-time winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy. "Who is... Brodeur?" No, it was Patrick Roy, leaving him with 7000. Steve finds the other under 1500 That Bites! Steve makes it 2000 to go on this: on April 24, 1983 a Hawks center chomped the finger of Danny Ainge, prompting the headline this object "Bites Man". He blanks on "Tree", as in Tree Rawlins, leaving him with 1000, where he ends regulation time. Evan has 3750, but can catch Dan's 7000. But remember: the score to beat to land on the leaderboard... 12,250.

BUT NOT BEFORE A BIT OF DRAMA! Due to a line ruling in Steve's favor, he too is now within striking distance of the lead at 5000.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Coaches": by winning Super Bowl XXXIV in 2000, he became the first head coach to win both a Rose Bowl & a Super Bowl. Correct response: who is Dick Vermeil?

Dan... silent but deadly... is the only one in with the correct response to win with 10,001. That doesn't land him on the big board, but it does land him $5000. Evan drops to $2000, while Steve is lucky to be leaving with a grand. And Kenny Chung? He can rest easy for another week.
