It's the original game of five-letter W-O-R-D-S, back for a new generation with bigger M-O-N-E-Y!

We will play two games, and the winner of each game will face each other in the Lingo Showdown for their total banks plus an additional $50,000!

Jennifer & Rachel
Mike & Jordan
San Francisco

First round is the LINGO ROUND. Each team will get three five-letter Lingoes. The fewer tries it takes to solve, the more money it's worth:
- 1st try (Golden Guess): $5000
- 2nd try: $2500
- 3rd try: $2000
- 4th try: $1500
- Final try: $1000
A GREEN letter is in the word and in its proper position. A YELLOW letter is in the word, but is out of place. You get 10 seconds per guess to start spelling. If you miss after five tries, run out of time, or give a guess that is not in the official dictionary, the other team can steal for $1000.
- Jennifer & Rachel: SMART ($2500), BLOCK ($2500), ENTRY ($2000) - $7000
- Mike & Jordan: LIGHT ($1000), GLOVE (nobody), CABIN (Jennifer/Rachel STEAL)
So far, Jennifer & Rachel lead, $8000-$1000.

SUPER LINGO: Each team will get one 10-letter word and a clue. The faster they solve it, the more it's worth, starting at $5000 and dropping $500 for every letter. If they're incorrect, it goes to the other team for a steal. Before that, though... we play with Ru's Lucky Balls - a white ball will add a letter, a gold ball will add money.
- Mike/Jordan (letter): This answer gets the party started - INVITATION for $3000
- Jennifer/Rachel (letter): You can't see the wood for the trees with this answer - RAINFOREST - $2000
Jennifer & Rachel lead, $10,000-$4000.

LINGO BATTLE: Just like the Lingo Round, but dollars are doubled, and with every guess that doesn't add a new green letter, control goes to the other team. We play two five-letter Lingoes (Jennifer vs. Mike) and two more challenging six-letter Lingoes (Rachel vs. Jordan). The round will end with one more 12-letter Super Lingo worth $10,000 and dropping by $1000 for each letter.
- PIANO (Jennifer/Rachel - $3000)
- JOCKEY (Jennifer/Rachel - $2000)
- MOTION (Mike/Jordan - $4000)
Jennifer & Rachel are in front, $15,000-$8000, going into...
- SUPER LINGO: With this answer, you're seeing double - DOPPELGANGER (Mike/Jordan - $7000)
We're tied at $15,000, so we play one more...
- TIEBREAKER SUPER LINGO: This answer is working all the angles - TRIGONOMETRY. Mike & Jordan get it for the win! They await the winner of this match...

Fiona & Lily
Reginald & Rachelle

- Fiona/Lily - AFTER (Reginald/Rachelle steal), FUNNY ($2000), VIDEO ($1500)
- Reginald/Rachelle - HOUSE ($5000), DRESS ($2000), WHEAT ($2500)
Reginald & Rachelle lead, $10,500 to $3500.

- Reginald/Rachelle ($500): This answer will make things look bigger - MICROSCOPE for $3500
- Fiona/Lily ($1000): This answer might leave a sour taste in your mouth - GRAPEFRUIT for $4000
So far, Reginald & Rachelle lead, $14,000 to $7500.

LINGO BATTLE: Lily & Rachelle take the five-letter words, while Fiona & Reginald will play the sixers.
- TAKEN (Reginald/Rachelle for $2000)
- REACT (Reginald/Rachelle for $2000)
- INTERN (Fiona/Lily for $4000)
- KENNEL (Fiona/Lily for $3000)
Reginald & Rachelle lead, $18,000 to $14,500, going into...
- SUPER LINGO: This answer wasn't out first choice - SUBSTITUTION (Reginald & Rachelle win, $20,000-$14,500)

LINGO SHOWDOWN for $85,000: Each team will get 2 minutes to solve five- and six-letter Lingoes. Five-letters are worth 5 points, six are worth 10. The team with the most points at the end of the round will win the $85,000
- Mike/Jordan: DOUBT, PARENT for 15
- Reginald/Rachelle: TRUTH, ANIMAL, BOARD to win, 20-15!

Last week the teams had to rely on Blind Faith to take on four challenges at one. The Pink Team wins and sends the Yellows to nomination. Moriah is nominated to take on Nany in the Zone. Nany survives, sending Moriah home.

DAILY CHALLENGE: TAKES TWO TO TANGO. Two team members at a time begin harnessed on the side of a building and must cross a balance beam containing several obstacles before returning to the start. At each circular obstacle on the beam, they must also spin around before continuing. There is a ten-minute time limit before pairs time out and are dropped from the beam. The intra-team pair with the fastest time wins the challenge for their team.
- WINNER: Pink Team

Before the nominations, Bananas asked Tori if she'd say Jordan's name at the direct vote. Jordan tells her he'd 100 percent never say her name.

- The vote is 4-2-1... for Horaco.

- Devin and Jordan, because they were part of the losing team, will pick the daggers. Devin picks... the SAFE dagger, whichs means...

ZONE: Horacio vs. Jordan
- BALLS IN: Played across three rounds; each round, players play both offense and defense. The offense player attempts to deposit a ball into a goal at the center of a ring while the defense player attempts to stop them by blocking them and knocking the ball out of bounds. Players then switch positions before the end of the round and repeat this process. The player with the most goals scored at the end of the third round wins.
WINNER: Horacio

The Circle: Singles

Netflix: streaming Wednesdays

The story so far! Bruno has been blocked, while Marvin was in a love triangle between Raven and "Tamira" (Tasia). After a round of Savage Questions, "Sasha", after trying to foment a revolution, is Blocked. Before Shubham leaves, "Jennifer" (Brett & Xanthi) gets a power...

... which they'll find out in the Inner Circle. "You are now the Hacker. Tomorrow, you will hack another player's profile. You will be able to start a private chat with one player posing as another. Think carefully about your choice."

Tom thinks Marvin is in trouble.... and he wants to add to that. Maybe when the Circle talks about Shubham's return. This turns into more talk about rebellion and ... maybe Marvin.

"Tamira" has a private chat with "Jennifer" about who she thinks is the most two-faced player. She wants to clear the air. "Jennifer" says she was forced to make a decision on the spot... which "Tamira" doesn't buy.

Tom opens a chat with Raven about Marvin, admitting he is his target... and telling her about "Tamira", which clearly hurts Raven. Speaking of, Marvin is on damage control, starting with Chaz, Raven's bestie.

ALERT! JEnnifer, please go to the Inner Circle now. It's time for them to talk to someone... they pick Chaz... to talk to Sam. "APPARENTLY SASHA AND TAMIRA ARE THE ONES WHO WERE BEHIND THE REVOLUTION." TEa. Dropped. Sam? Rebuttal... She's buying into it. Now Chaz and Sam are on the same page in getting Tamira out.

Oliver talks to Raven about getting strong players on his side. Together, they want to bring Chaz on board. #TootsieRollTeam

ALERT! ANIMAL INSTINCTS: The Circle is inviting you to an animal instincts party. You can collect your party items at the door now. The kit includes costumes and face paint. That, in addition to everyone rapping about everyone else.

Marvin's still got enough energy to talk to Raven in hopes to ask for her forgiveness. He admits being flirty to "Tamira"... and Raven isn't really feeling his apology. "You're not gonna win me back. I'm not a trophy. I'm a human." She forgives him, but she doesn't trust him. And that's where we leave things for the night.

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