Now that the auditions are done and four avatars have been de-rezzed, the competition to find the next-gen digital superstar can begin in earnest on ALTER EGO!  Over the next few weeks, the avis will go head-to-head to see who advances and who heads home.  Alanis Morissette, Nick Lachey, Grimes and are ready to judge.

The first match-up is Naveah King vs. Safara...Jay Miah from Florida vs. Mariah Rosario from Arizona.

Naveah King changed her hair color for the occasion from pink to an ocean blue as Jay is want to do as a "drag queen".  Naveah goes into an awesome rendition of "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gayner, her vocal range is outstanding. and Alanis loved the performance and range.  Grimes wants to hear more modern tunes coming out her but has little doubt she can hack it.  And Nick...flirting by Naveah aside, he is wowed by Naveah's performance and "owning" of the stage.

Safara comes out...hoping to do Mariah's mama proud (the mama died when Mariah was 11).  The pleasantly plump Mariah gets the svelte Safara into a version of "Diamonds" by Rihanna (and had Grimes) singing along.  She admits the audition gave her the confidence to keep going.  Grimes and Nick really like the confidence exuded. loves the song as is but did really like this version.  Alanis wants to hear her in a bit more subtle a setting...but has no issues with her performance tonight.

Which digital diva will go to the semi-finals?  Nick votes for...Safara. votes for...Naveah King.  Alanis votes for...Safara.  And Grimes...votes for...SAFARA!

So Naveah King leaves with Celine Dion's "Because You Love Me"...and to say that the judges are shocked when Jay Miah comes out to finish the song is an understatement...ESPECIALLY to the target of "her" flirts, Nick Lachey.

Next battle is betwixt Phoenix Embers and Dipper Scott...Danielle Cetani from California and Jake Calinoda from Charlotte, Carolina.

Jake was happy to forget about his problems with chronic illness during his Dipper Scott audition...and his confidence is transferred into his version of Imagine Dragon's "Believer".  The judges LOVE his voice and the audience seems to be behind him 100%.  Grimes admits Dipper's the fave, Nick doesn't know why he's not a superstar, Alanis says "incredible" and speechless...except for "HELL, yeah!"

Phoenix Embers' controller Danielle found the audition process alike to the mother-of-three "being reborn".  She ALSO chooses a 2010's popular song: "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus.  Nick loved the vocals and that Phoenix feels alive through music. loved that the crowd stood up for the performance.  Alanis hoped Phoenix wouldn't screw up one of her fave songs...and she didn't.  Grimes loves the personality shown and the story.

So...which rocker will roll onto The Diamond and into the semis?  Grimes votes for...Dipper Scott.  Alanis votes for...Phoenix Embers.  Nick votes for...Dipper Scott.  And for...DIPPER SCOTT!

So Phoenix Embers must fade away.  The crowd cheers for her as she starts in on Melissa Etheridge's "I'm the Only One"...and Danielle Cetani wows everyone when she reveals herself.

  Jonathan's going for the hat trick today against...

Jonathan Fisher
orig. Coral Gables, FL


Bilal Ali
product manager

Mary Garvey
Huntingdon, PA

JEOPARDY! ROUND: The Sabbath, Names in Fashion, Hodgepodge, Pro Wrestling Terminology; Lincoln, Blinken; "Nod".

Jonathan starts with $200 Pro Wrestling Terminology. At the TV timeout, Mary leads with $3000 to $1800 for Jonathan. Bilal is on $800.

Mary has $2800 when she finds the Daily Double under $600 The Sabbath. She goes in for $2000 on this...
- THE SABBATH for $2000: At a church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints sacrament meeting, a young man may talk about 2 years away as one of these.
"What is a sabbatical?" No, it was a missionary, dropping her to $800. She ends up with $2800 to $2200 for Bilal. Jonathan is on $1200. He gets the action when we begin...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Shakespeare's Insults, Food Forward, 80s TV, Double-Letter Geography, Stars & Stones, Triple Rhyme Time.

... with $2000 Shakespeare's Insults, finding the first Daily Double under $800. He bets $3000 of his $6000 on this:
- SHAKESPEARE'S INSULTS for $3000: In "The Comedy of Errors", Dromio describes Nell: "Hip to hip: she is spherical, like" this name of Shakespeare's venue.
"What is the Globe?" RIGHT for $9000! Mary has $7600 when she finds the other one under $800 Double Letter Geography. She wagers $3000 on this:
- DOUBLE-LETTER GEOGRAPHY for $3000: Moraine Lake is in this national park established in 1885 as Canada's very first.
"What is Banff?" RIGHT for $10,600! She ends up with $12,600 to Jonathan's $15,800. Bilal can spoil with $5400.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Sports Legends": When Johnny Bench broke his record, this man wrote, "I always thought the record would stand until it was broken". Correct response: who is Yogi Berra?

Everyone comes to the fork in the road... and everyone takes it. Jonathan takes it to the house for $18,300, giving him $70,000 even for three.

Wednesday at the Marketplace starts off with Adam the Magician(real world champ Magician who performs at the Magic Castle). He has the LMAD Mini Vault with Cash inside. Adam can take the vault or Curtain 3. Leftovers goes to Michaela the Warrior(retail worker who is an equestrian). Adam takes Curtain 3 and wins a CARDBOARD KITCHEN(ZONK). He gets $200 for performing a card trick. Michaela can take the vault or the Big Box. Leftovers goes to Ruben the Hot Cheeto(works for an energy company). Michaela takes the Big Box and wins a new Vespa Primavera Scooter worth $4,989! Ruben can keep the vault or take Curtain 2. He keeps the cash and passes on Curtain 2 which was a trip to Bahamas! It was a 5N stay at the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach on Grand Bahama Island worth $6,866! Ruben wins $600!

Time to play MOVIN ON UP with Tasha(at home Jester from Chicago, IL - business advisor). She is playing for a 2022 Hyundai Elantra worth $21,410! Here's how the game works. Tasha must pick from the row of 6 to the row of 2 without hitting a zonk. The rows of 6 to the row of 3 contain cash spaces. If Tasha gets to the row of 2 and picks the number that has the WIN symbol behind it - Tasha will win the Hyundai! Tasha picks 3 in the row of 6 and it is $300. She moves on to the row of 5 and picks 1 and adds $500. She has $800. Tasha moves on to the row of 4 and picks 2 for $1,000. She has $1,800 and moves on to the row of 3. Tasha has $3,800 and one final decision. Tasha can leave with $3,800 or take the 50/50 shot at the Hyundai in the row of 2. Tasha STOPS with $3,800. For fun, she would have picked 2. That was...THE ZONK. 1 was the car! GOOD JOB!

Joanne the Swiss Lady(retired after 44 years old at American Airlines) has the LMAD envelope with a $100 bill inside. On each $100 bill is an 8 digit serial number. Joanne picks 5 from 0-9. For every 5 on the bill, Wayne will pay her $1,000. She can go for that or take the Big Box. Joanne goes for the box. The serial number was 23849031. That means Joanne gave up NOTHING for the Big Box prize which is a meditation room with floor cushion, scented castles, salt lamps, brain sensing headband along with a year of Urbanstems floral delivery worth $3,971! Taylor the Ballerina(former Professional Ballerina from the Pacific Northwest Ballet Company - counsels Ballerinas now). will be asked for three items from her purse. For every item she has, Taylor will get $500. We need someone to guess if Taylor has those items in her purse. That is Chris the Pirate(works for a music streaming platform - 9 yr military vet). Chris says NO to a PENNY. She does have it - so Taylor has $500. Next is ANYTHING BLUE. She does. He says YES. Chris has $500 and Taylor has $1,000. Last is PHOTO OF ANOTHER PERSON. He says YES. She does(with her and her sister). Chris has $1,000 and can take Curtain 3. He takes Curtain 3 and wins a Bowflex Home Gym and Velocore Bicycle along with $2,000 in cash! That is worth $5,847! Taylor keeps the $1,500 over the LMAD Gift Bag which was BACON JEWELRY(ZONK)!

Latreava the Gumballs(at homie from New York City) is playing OVERHEARD IN HOLLYWOOD. Wayne and Jonathan gossip about the Curtain 1 prize. They whisper that THE TOP BRASS WANTED TO TABLE THE WHOLE IDEA. Latreava takes the tiny box over Curtain 1. The brass table over Curtain 1 was a personal vanity with chair, brass table and hair care products from Avon along with Ballroom Dancing Lessons worth $8,144! Latreava trades the tiny box for $1,000 which was JONATHAN'S TWO CENTS(ZONK)!

Jasmine(as a Hogwarts Student - former NBA Dancer) is playing for a 2022 Kia Forte worth $20,388! To win the car, Jasmine must beat WINFALL. We have a descending ramp with 7 discs - 2 red, 2 yellow, 2 blue and one that says WIN. Jasmine will roll a 10 sided die down the ramp which has red spaces, blue spaces, yellow spaces and one starred black space which is WILD. If Jasmine can get rid of all the colored discs and lets the WIN FALL(get it? ) within the rules we set, she will win the Kia. Jasmine rolls RED, and RED again. That means is Jasmine rolls another RED, the game is OVER. Jasmine is offered $500 not to play. She rolls on and hits RED. Great for Vegas, not for her. She's done. Wayne offers her $500 to roll WILD or RED AGAIN - she can't. It's YELLOW.

Last deal of the day involves Karen the Butterfly(mother of 3 girls - dance mom to 2) and hippie Sarah (caregiver & mother of a pandemic baby). They get a small box with a bonus. They also get a big box with no bonus. Karen takes the Big Box... and gets a set of YSL shoes, bags &  dress worth $6245! Sarah gets the Small Box with a cash bonus. Will she sell it back for $1000? Nope. $1400? Nope. The bonus... $500! The box.. EGGSERCISE CLASSES! (ZONK)

THE BIG DEAL OF THE DAY is worth $26,246, and Karen is trading in her just-won designer package for a door!

Karen picks #3. Behind Door #1... a trip to Greece (7n) worth $11,865. Behind Door #2... A trip to Disneyland (3n) worth $3,816. That means Karen trades her designer accessories for the Big Deal behind the Big 3... it's a CARIBBEAN CRUISE (6n @ Island Windjammers)... and the trip to Greece... AND the trip to Disneyland! She's won EVERYTHING IN THE BIG DEAL, and it all totals $26,246! CONGRATULATIONS!

With that big win in the Big Deal, the Marketplace of America now passes $1 million for season 13!

Last week, Bull, Skunk, Hamster, Baby, and new entry Pepper entertained us, but Baby was sent to bed, but not before revealing himself to be Larry "Git'er Done" the Cable Guy. Group B has returned to the stage, and just in time for... a date night.

First up, obviously is BANANA SPLIT, says that there's a different between a great song and a great song "for you", especially when it comes to love songs. They say the perfect recipe for a long song is fantasy, pain, and reality. We see glitter, a REd Cross kit, a globe, and a plate with the word "nothing". They sing "Cry Me a River" by Michael Bublé.
- BONUS CLUE this week comes in the form of a speed dating round. Ice Cream kisses on the first date, Banana went to Costco with Ken, they like lakes more than swimming pools & parties over small gatherings, and they'd date Nicole because "they'd have a ball together."

CUPCAKE calls herself a Black Liz Taylor and says that if she falls for a guy, she's all-in. We see something that says "Say Yup to the Cup", possibly hinting at a marriage or two. She sings "Finesse" by Bruno Mars.
- BONUS CLUES: She likes Whole Foods, she believes in love at first sight, she would give herself the advice of "date, don't marry", and would date Nick because they've got "double trouble".

Third up, the QUEEN OF HEARTS swipes left on the Rock, Joe Kerr IV, Couch Surfer, Sour Doughboy, Austin Tatious and Fly Guy. She wants the King of Hearts to have emotional intelligence and be "smart, handsome, outdoorsy, and have a private plane". She sings "La Vie En Rose" by Edith Piaf.
- BONUS CLUES: She'd never date her ex again, she likes reading, riding motorcycles, and hiking, she notices a vibe when meeting someone new, and the Alps are her favorite place to travel. She would date Ken because they'd have a "roasting hot" first date.

Hot duck alert. It's MALLARD, who believes in love at first sight. He met his wife in fourth grade. She is so supportive, she's even here with him tonight. It actually makes him more nervous. He sings "My House" by Flo Rida.
- BONUS CLUES: Mallard's first celebrity crush was Olivia Newton-John, he keeps the lights on for... relations...he has dimples, and he's extremely hairy. He would go on a date with Jenny, because they can "sit on the couch and get the same wavelength."

Finally, it's time to get wild... card... wtih our next Wild Card... CATERPILLAR. He says his life is about metamorphosis. Growing up lonely, things weren't always great, and he left home at an early age. He's even stolen to make ends meet. We see a basketball, a group of police officer, and the Great Lakes. He sings "If I Were A Boy" by Beyoncé.
- BONUS CLUES: Caterpillar ghosted someone, been cheated on, likes texts over phone calls, and connects with Robin, because he can't take his eyes off of his printed shirts.

UNMASKING #6. After the votes of the audience and the super fans nationwide have been tallied, it's time to hit the hook for... CUPCAKE. Firsts and finals...
- Ken: Angela Bassett/Tina Turner
- Nicole: Roberta Flack/Ruth Pointer
- Robin: RuPaul/Leslie Jones
- Jenny: RuPaul/Grace Jones
THE CUPCAKE IS.... one third of the Pointer Sisters, RUTH POINTER!

Previously on... Survivor, Yase finally gets immunity, sending Ua back to Tribal Council, where they voted out Brad with TWO advantages in his pocket.

Blindsided, Genie realizes that she's on the outside looking in, and she doesn't want to play the mom to people who don't respect her. Shan confesses to her that Brad told her about the secret plays, but let Genie out of it. JD now realizes that Shan is playing him.

REWARD CHALLENGE: Catch the Ball. Toss a ball onto an overhead track, maneuver through a rope obstacle to catch the ball before it hits the ground. Once all four balls are retrieved, toss them onto a high, narrow beam. The first tribe to finish wins a visit from a local survivalist, guy by the name of Nathan. The second tribe to finish wins... one fish.
- LUVU sits out: Naseer & Erika
- WINNERS: Ua (1st), Yase (2nd).

It's all Heather's fault that the tribe lost, and she knows it. Erika knows it too, and she's through playing the lanb. She bonds with Desawn about how emotional Sydney is playing the game. They consider putting her name on the chopping block. Deshawn then goes to Sydney to throw Erika under the bus. Sydney & Deshawn then go to Danny about Erika. This is their chance to vote Erika out.

IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: Logs on the Water. Use logs on the water to retrieve keys from a tunnel that unlocks rings that they would throw on a ring toss. First two tribes to finish win Immunity.
- LUVU sits out: Sydney & Heather.
- WINNERS: Yase (1st), Luvu (2nd)

Back at Ua, Genie started to scramble with JD to vote out Ricard. Shan tells Genie she can trust Ricard and she should vote out JD instead. JD tells Ricard that Genie is cominga fter her. Shan & Ricard plan to get JD to give Shan his advantage. JD realizes that Shan is playing him too.

TRIBAL COUNCIL #5: JD points out when you're in the game, you don't have all the information that you do at home. Genie says the last time she was the one without info, Brad was blindsided. Genie says that she plans on playing her Shot in the Dark. JD pleased that she may mess up the plan she made with someone who promises to work with her.
- Everyone else... including Genie: JD. By a vote of 3-1, JD.. THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
