TWO DAY CHAMPION
Kyle Becker

Lindsay Norsworthy

Eric Dravler
Lenoir, NC
pediatrician

JEOPARDY! ROUND: They Made the Cabinet, National Days, Put a "Lid" on It, The Eye, Of the Tiger, You're Gonna Hear Me Roar

Kyle starts with $200 They Made the Cabinet, finding the Daily Double under $1000 The Eye. He bets the level on this: sometimes when we get older, this part of the retina "degenerates" & causes blurriness in our field of vision. "What is the macula?" RIGHT for $4000! He ends up with $6400 to Eric's $4800. Lindsay, on a close $3000, gets the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Alfred Hitchcock Resents, It's Hyphenated, For It Is A Fact, Authors at War, "L" on the Map, Victim of Gravity.

... with $400 It's Hyphenated, finding the first Daily Double one clue afterwards on $800. She wagers $2000 on this: the Venerable Bede said they were descendants of 3 different Germanic peoples--the Jutes & th e2 in their name. "Who are the Anglo-Saxons?" GOOD for $5400! Eric finds the other under $1600 Victim of Gravity. He makes it $3000 to go on this: a 2017 Vogue story said Susan Sarandon's dress had this type of "neckline". "What is plunging?" GOOD for $7400. He ends up tied with Lindsay at $6600. Kyle has exactly double that total. THIS should be interesting!

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Reference Books": this manual resulted from a military engineer's attendance at an unruly 1860s church meeting. Correct response: what is "Robert's Rules of Order"?

Kyle is the only one to get it right, so he's going to win. But what did he wager? ONLY THE DOLLAR. He gets another $13,201 to bring his three-day tally to $43,601.

In the middle of the week at the Marketplace, we start with three: Minnie Mouse Lisa (homemaker), Princess Leia Sarah (personal trainer), and apple Evangeline (Teacher) playing Beat the Dealer. First round... Lisa picks E.... 6. Sarah goes with D... 1. Sorry, Sarah. Evangeline gets B... 7. Sarah gets $100. The others get $500 and play for a 4KTV with lift cabinet worth $3799. Evangeline goes with A... 4. Lisa tries G... 9! She gets the TV and the money. She can keep it or trade for a shot at a FORD FIESTA WORTH $16,860! Lisa is going for it! She picks F for Wayne & C for herself. F... 3. C... 2. OUCH.

Mountain girl Shelly (Riverside, CA) gets a jack-in-the-box. There's something inside of it. Will she trade it for Curtain #3? She goes for the curtain. The jack-in-the-box.. $310.... TIMES 10. So $3100 just bought her a PEDAL-POWERED LAWN MOWER (ZONK!)

Rabbit Harream (high school teacher from Philadelphia) has viewer email from Tiffany. "If you want to get away from a few days, where is one place you consider going?" The answer is behind Curtain #2. Or you can take $500... $1000... $1200... Curtain. Harream is going to CHICAGO (4n @ Kinzie Hotel, $5226)!

Tourist couple Sylvia & John (14 years) get to meet.... Dr. Wayne. First deal is a pair of watches ($2095) or a pair of iPhones ($1938). NO MATCH. Trying again with Michael Kors designer accessories ($3261) or surfboards ($3418). NO MATCH! One more go: keep what you have (nothing) or trade for a Tiny Box... or take $1000. Not surprisingly, they can't agree on this either. $1500? Tiny Box. $2000? Box. They win... A TRIP TO ARUBA (7n @ Rui Palace Antillas Aruba), a deal worth $7346!

Birthday girl Dateria (new mom), firefighter Karen (realtor from Lake Geneva, WI), and umbrella hat Scott (elementary school teacher from Garden Grove, CA) get three envelopes. They can keep their own envelope or trade for Curtain #3. Dateria and Scott trade. Dateria passed up $1100. Scott passed up $3300. The curtain... a hot tub & patio lounge chair worth $7533! Will Karen keep her envelope or trade for a small box? She keeps her cash, and passed on TIFFANY'S COINS (ZONK!) We're not done yet! How about the Big Box? She trades, and $2200 buys her a pair of scooters worth $6098!

Cowgirl Abigail gets $1500, which can help her win a CHEVY CRUZE WORTH $20,400! She has 15 seconds to find the right key amongst the 15 Keys. Abigail buys another five seconds, so she has $1000. Will she get the car, though? No... it was #4.

Last one before the Big One goes to Bradybug Donna, who gets $500 and a Before & After board of Home Alone 3, Ice Age, and Stuart Little. The year of great importance is 2000. She says BEFORE for Home Alone 3... 1997! She says AFTER for Ice Age... 2002! She says BEFORE for Stuart Little.... 1999! She has $2000. Maybe she wants to buy an envelope. She buys it, and she gets A BRADY/MANGUM HUG SANDWICH (ZONK)!

The Big Deal is worth $24,434. Dateria trades in her hot tub for a door! She goes with Door #2. Behind #3... a refrigerator & cookware worth $4814. Behind HER door... a new bedroom worth $6535. The Big One had the big one, and it was a trip to FIJI (6n @ Taveuni Palms Resort) AND $5000.

Survivor: Heroes v Healers v Hustlers

JURY:
- Desi Williams
- Cole Medders

- JP Hilsabeck
- Joe Mena
- Lauren Rimmer

Last week had a double elimination with JP and Joe falling to the new alliance of Lauren, Ashley, Ben, and Devon. Will the pact hold or is someone going to flip? One thing's for sure... No secret is safe. Because that's how these people are.

Before the next Reward Challenge, we have special guests... Ashley's dad Jim, Ryan's dad Steve, Mike's wife Mary, Lauren's sister Sunny, Chrissy's husband Keith, Devon's mom Sonya, and Ben's wife Kelly.

REWARD CHALLENGE: Marble Match. It's the Survivor version of the drawing-marbles-to-make-a-match game on Let's Make a Deal. Mismatch, and you're eliminated. Last pair standing win ... a barbecue at camp.

(C-Note: rumors surfaced that this relatively simplistic challenge was the result of one of the loved ones failing a physical. Whether or not that's true remains to be seen.)

- WINNERS: Chrissy & Keith
- No fun to eat alone. PICK FOUR: Ryan/Steve, Mike/Mary, Ashley/Jim.

Chrissy picked Ashley because she seemed like the easiest vote to flip. Ashley is more interested in the idea that she wants to vote Ben out.

BACK AT CAMP: Ben decides to play the old Make-a-Fake-Immunity-Idol trick to bait someone from outside into using it. Lauren's a little put off by that play to bait Chrissy. Meanwhile, she finds HALF of a Pendant of Li... err, Hidden Immunity Idol. She will have to find the other half somewhere in the Temp... err, next Immunity Challenge. Speaking of...

IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: Discworld. Each player has to stand and hold two discs up with their fingertips. If they fall, you're out. Last one standing wins Immunity.
- Lauren gives up the ghost fourth, but in doing so, she is able to pick up the second half of the REAL Hidden Idol!
- WINNER: Ashley.

Ashley sees an opportunity to make a huge move. She can break from the alliance and vote out Ben, or hold the numbers advantage and allow the alliance to choose her next target. "The choices are yours and yours alone!" Meanwhile, Ben, thinking that someone might be flipping, decides to put his trust in Mike and Ryan. Chrissy, on the other hand, will be a tough nut to crack. She relents to voting out Lauren, but wonders if it will indeed happen. With a non-committal answer, Mike tells Ashley & Devon that Ben is playing to blindside Lauren. Remember when we said "no secret is safe"? Guess who Devon tells... Lauren tries to curry favor with Mike by giving her one-half of the hidden Idol she won earlier.

(Antoine Dodson: YOU ARE SO DUMB. REALLY REALLY DUMB. FOR REAL)

TRIBAL COUNCIL #12: Ben reveals his fake Idol and said he would vote for Lauren. Lauren left her two-vote advantage at camp, so it can't be used tonight. As for Mike, he takes his half of the Idol Lauren gave her... AND BURNS IT! So to review: Ben is willing to break rank and vote with Ryan & Chrissy to get Lauren out. Devon is trying to get Mike et al. to vote Ben out. All we know for sure is.. It IS time to vote.

Before the vote, Ben SHOCKS the tribe and reveals that in addition to having a fake Idol, he has a REAL one, AND PLAYS IT! And as it would turn out, for the first time in Survivor history, such a play would negate a UNANIMOUS decision.
- Ben: LAUREN. By a vote of 1-0... BEN has spoken. I hate to repeat myself, but I don't really...

(Antoine Dodson: YOU ARE SO DUMB. REALLY REALLY DUMB. FOR REAL)

  Greg Peterson (Chicago, IL) makes it to $5,000, then asks the audience at $10,000, and calls on his Plus One, Tim, as well as using the 50:50 at $30,000. That brings him to this...

[$50,000]
On May 11, 1812, Spencer Perceval became the only British Prime Minister in history to have his term cut short by what?
A: Assassination
B: Impeachment
C: Resignation
D: Death from illness

Greg remembers that Perceval was shot, but he doesn't remember if that led to his death. Still, he's leaning towards A, taking some more time to think about it before locking it in... and it's A! Greg has $50,000 at the end of this episode, and he'll be back tomorrow to try for more!
