Yesterday, Mattea broke through $500,000. Now it's on to $1 million!

Mattea Roach

Jamie Sisson

Fair and Responsible banking manager

SINGLE JEOPARDY!: KEepin' Up with NASA, New York State History, The Reality of TV, Hundreds, "A" My Name Is, Prefixed Pairs

Mattea starts with $200 Keepin' Up with NASA. Kelly finds the Daily Double under $800 Prefixed Pairs. She wagers the max on this: 
- PREFIXED PAIRS: A substance taken to counteract poison & a rival religious figure like Felix V in the 15th century. 
"What are antivenom & antipope?" RIGHT! Or you could've said "antidote" instead. BUt yeah, she's up to $1400. She ends the round with $3000 to $700 for Mattea. Jaime on $2600 plays first in... 

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: It's Your Top 40 Presidential Countdown, Africa, I Created That Fictional Place!, World Currencies, The Movies, These Words Mean No Offense

... with $400 The Movies. MAttea finds the Daily Double under $1600 World Currencies. She fronts $3000 on this...
- WORLD CURRENCIES for $3000: Like their shared neighbor, Sri Lanka & Pakistan use currencies called this
"What is a rupee?" RIGHT for $12,000! Kelly finds the other under $1200 These Words Mean No Offense. In the red by $600, she bets the max on this... 
- THESE WORDS MEAN NO OFFENSE for $2000: This 8-letter word is made up of a prefix from Greek meaning "sharp" & another word that means someone of low intelligence
"What is an oxymoron?" That's right, but she blanks to take a dive to -$2600. She ends the round with that much, and her day is over. Jaime is in second with $6600, but with $28,400, it's Mattea's game to lose. 

- THE CIVIL WAR: A Union soldiers' song said General McClellan, who let a Confederate Army escape after this battle, "was too slow to beat 'em"
Correct response: what is Antietam? 

MAttea didn't have to bet a thing. She didn't to win $28,400, giving her a 22-day tally of $534,984!

The Circle Season Premiere

Netflix: streaming Wednesdays
Host: Michelle Buteau

Season 4 inside "The Circle" is looking to be ... spicier.. than ever! That'll make sense in a few minutes. Let's go over the players, all of whom are playing for $100,000. 

- Parker Abbott (21; playing as "Paul", her 56-year-old father)
- Josh "Bru" Brubaker (25; playing as himself)
- John Franklin (24; playing as "Carol", his 56-year-old mother)
- Frank Grimsley (28; playing as himself)
- Crissa Jackson (31; playing has herself)
- Alyssa Ljubicich (27; playing as herself)
- Yu Ling Wu (25; playing as herself)

We begin with a chat from our first four entries into the Circle, Alyssa, Frank, "Carol", and Yu Ling, followed by the other three - Crissa, Bru, and "Paul". A note, "Carol" recognizes Bru as active on TikTok, where he has 3.5 million followers. 

MEanwhile, the players all suspect that "Paul" is a catfish after "he" revealed that he didn't know what a memoir was.


GAME #1: BEEN THERE, DONE THAT. The Circle will ask questions, and the players will answer thumbs up or down. 

"Paul" is trying to convince both Frank and Bru that "he" is not a catfish.

RATING #1: Based on nothing more than first impressions and profiles, you must now rate your fellow circlemates. The top 2 will be named as Influncers, and everyone else is vulnerable to being BLocked. 
- 7th (or LAST): "Paul"
- 6th: Yu Ling
- 5th: Bru
- 4th: Alyssa
- 3rd: Crissa
INFLUENCERS: Frank (1st) & "Carol" (2nd). Of course, they'll head to the Loft and decide who will be the first person blocked... but before we do, Frank, as the Top Influencer, has an important decision to make. Who will be the 8th person to join The Circle, Jared or Trey? But there's one catch. Remember when we said that this season was going to be "spicier" than ever? 

- Melanie "Mel B" Brown & Emma Bunton (both 45; playing as whoever Frank chooses)

Yep. Not one, but TWO Spice Girls playing as a single catfish. But not just yet. They'll be in shortly. 

New episodes of "The Circle" drop every Wednesday on Netflix. Another recap follows tomorrow.

For the last eight weeks, we've seen 16 teams of domino fellers create builds around fantastic themes. Now we're down to the final four, who will compete together as one group instead of two for the first time tonight - Brains and Brawn, Dominerds, Mechanical Mavericks, and the OG Topplers. What theme will the judges give us today as we enter the semifinal round?

The theme for this is sponsored by our friends at Mattel.. it's HOT WHEELS. You have eight hours to design, construct, and execute a build around the classic die-cast car toys. 
- Mechanical Mavericks: Cross-country race
- The OG Topplers: Cars vs. dominoes
- Dominerds: Kid's bedroom
- Brains and Brawn: Race through the elements
In addition, your builds must incorporate a two-foot long jump... using a car... that you 3D printed yourself. 
- ELIMINATED: The OG Topplers. 

And that leaves us with the final three. One of them will be crowned Domino Masters NEXT WEEK!

Today in the Forge? Prepare for trouble… and make it double.

ROUND 1: Before you are two small cube canisters and two shots of high carbon steel. You have to use those to make two matching knives using canister Damascus in your signature style. They must each measure 7-9 inches in blade length. 

  • Tim: Drop point camp knives
  • Paul: Drop point hunters
  • Cody: Clip point hunters
  • Gari: Clip point hunters


ROUND 2: Fix any problems you may have and then fit your blades with matching handles and guards in preparation for a strength test (drum stab & chop) and a sharpness test. (punching bag stab & slice) 

  • Tim: Drop point camp knives with Purple Heart handles
  • Paul: Drop point hunters with G-10 handles 
  • Cody: Clip point hunters with micarta handles


ROUND 3: You have four days in your home forges to recreate the cinquedea sword. Tracing its roots back to 15th & 16th century Italy, the name comes from the Italian for "five fingers", referring to the width of the blade at its hilt. The most distinguishing feature is its double-edged with multiple fillers on both sides, making the sword lightweight enough yo deliver deadly thrusts & slashes. Your blades must measure between 26 & 28 inches, be double-edged with six fullers on both sides, and feature a curved upswept guard & crescent pommel.

  • Paul: 80CRv2 Cinquedea
  • Cody: 155-layer 15N20/1084 Damascus Cinquedea

From here on, we have a KEAL test (goat carcass), a strength test (clay pot smash), and a sharpness test (sandman stab & slice).

And Doug… as he will do from time to time… got a little TOO into it with Cody's sword. No surprise, it makes the cut for $10,000.

Last week, Baby Mammoth went extinct, unmasking herself to be Kirstie Alley. Now we're down to the final three of this group. The winner moves on to meet Firefly and Ringmaster in the season finale.

First up, Team Good's PRINCE. When he was a young frog, he felt that no one was listening to him, only judging what's on the outside. After years struggling, people finally saw the Prince for who he was. In the piece we have Carnegie Hall, sheet music, an airplane, and bats. Lots and lots of bats. He sings "Sir Duke" by Stevie Wonder.

Second from Team Cuddly is SPACE BUNNY, who came from a tiny burrow where everything seems to move slowly. He loved living off the land and since moving to the big city, he didn't want to forget where he came from. He stayed on the right path and became the rabbit you see today. In the package, we see angels, a crown, carrots, a boom box, and a drill. He sings "Now That We Found Love" by Heavy D & the Boyz featuring Aaron Hall. 

Finally QUEEN COBRA from Team Bad admits that they are three queens from different worlds with talent full enough to put a spell on you. They tried to do it separately, but fate had other plans. In said plans they found their greatest strength… Each other. Their piece had a Charlie's Angels photo, red chili peppers, a statue that costs nothing, and a photo of Ariana Grande, Mariah Carey, and Céline Dion. So three divas then (C-Note: one would argue of the funky variety). They sing "Leave the Door Open" by Silk Sonic. 

SHOWDOWN: All three (err, five) come together to perform "Roar" by Katy Perry. 

UNMASKING #11: the votes are in and the first person leaving is… SPACE BUNNY. Final guesses…

  • Ken: Owen Wilson 
  • Jenny: Sean Kingston
  • Robin: Shaggy
  • Nicole: Shaggy

SPACE BUNNY IS… Grammy-award winning singer SHAGGY! Robin & Nicole have 1.

UNMASKING #12: … and the one moving on to the finale is… Prince! Meaning it's time to cut off Queen Cobra's head.

  • Ken: Ariana Grande, Jessie J & Nicki Minaj 
  • Jenny: En Vogue 
  • Robin: SWV
  • Nicole: En Vogue

QUEEN COBRA IS… the funky divas themselves, EN VOGUE!

So there's the finale. Prince, Ringmaster, and Firefly will face off for the Golden Mask and the title of King/Queen of Masked Singer in the finale!

Hump day at the Price begins with Robin Freeman, Jeffrey Lopez, Caleigh Elkin, Matthew Malcolm, and an infrared sauna. The $2253 sauna goes to Robin, who gets to play for a home gym with treadmill & juice for a year in SECRET X. Free money goes top left. She gets another with a $149 facial cleaner. That goes top right. If the Secret X is on the top, they win… IT IS!

Evelyn Avila goes down and up thanks to a $1350 set of power tools. Next for her are a trio of Jimmy Choo purses and a 65" smart TV in BARGAIN GAME.

  • $23,140… NO
  • $21,340… NO. It was $23,410. Needed more chances.

Evelyn wins at the first Showcase Showdown. Meanwhile, Thomas Ni gets a $775 telescope & binoculars. He'll use them in Montana (5n @ Izaak Walton Inn) if he knows whether he's COMING ($9137) OR GOING ($7319). He goes… GOOD!

Matthew gets off the schneid with a $1249 dishwasher. Can he win a turntable, a grill with accessories, a massage chair, and a pair of ATVs in RACE GAME? The prices: $635, $1950, $2545, and $5000. He goes $635, $2545, $1950, $5000… two right. Swapping the two middle ones… one right. Ending up with $635, $1950, $5000, and $2545… two right, the turntable and the chair. 

Caleigh is down to last bid last chance with a pair of smart watches. The price: $560. The winner… CALEIGH! Her patience will be rewarded with a Nissan Sentra SR in LET'EM ROLL. She gets all three rolls. First roll… one car, $3500. She goes again… four cars, $500. Might as well… CAR! She also wins at the Wheel to meet Evelyn in…

Last week, we had a double elimination with Rocksroy and Tori both shown a seat in the jury. Now we're down to the final 8. 

Hai is happy his vote went according to plan, which puts Mike in a bad position. Mike is not proud of himself. But the real winner? Omar. This gives him just the right amount of cover to go for Hai without having to get his hands dirty. 

Recall that Drea and Maryanne both used their idols last round, which Omar and Lindsey both take to mean that there's an idol somewhere on the island. She came close to finding it… but Maryanne DID.

At Challenge Beach, it's getting stormy. You could use some food and shelter…

REWARD CHALLENGE: Walk This Way. Starting in the water, the castaways will traverse a tunnel obstacle before untying knots to retrieve a stick with a sandbag on top. They will carry the stick and maneuver a sandbag under a hitching post before crossing a seesaw balance beam. They will then place their stick in the hole in a narrow disc platform, onto which they will attempt to land their sandbag. The first contestant to land their sandbag wins an overnight at the Survivor sanctuary with cold beer, hot pizza, and love from home. 

  • WINNER: Lindsey. She naturally doesn't want to go alone, bringing Omar… and Mike!

Lindsey asks Hai who to target. He thinks Romeo is a safe bet. She thinks Jonathan would be an open bet if he fails to win immunity. Omar and Mike are up to eliminating Hai if it comes to it.

IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: Bow Diddley. Balance on a narrow beam while balancing a ball on a rounded bow. Every five minutes, they would move further down to a narrower part of the beam, making it harder to keep steady; those that make the final stage will stay there for 30 minutes. If they drop their ball or fall off their beam, they will be out of the challenge. The last person standing wins.

  • WINNER: Lindsey

Hai is feeling himself saying he can sway the game, going to Mike with a plan to get rid of Jonathan. Mike will say what Hai wants to hear as long as he believes he's still his puppet.

Hai, in an attempt to prevent Jonathan from playing his Shot in the Dark, says he's willing to play his idol for him. Jonathan tells Omar, who believes he should keep Hai because he's an easy mark. 

TRIBAL COUNCIL #9: Everyone agrees that as hard as the game is, it's always on and strategy is always on as well. Lindsey says she's willing to level the playing field if it comes to it. 

  • Jonathan: HAI
  • Romeo: JONATHAN
  • Omar: HAI
  • Lindsey: HAI
  • Mike: HAI
  • Drea: HAI

That's enough. By a vote of 6-2, Hai… The Tribe has spoken.
