While you were busy running for President again EVEN WHEN YOU KNOW YOU HAVE ZERO SHOT AT WINNING... Rick Santorum, we were getting something together that was genuinely entertaining. Tonight's #HashtagWars: #ClickbaitAMovie to celebrate "clickbait" being added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Tom leads with 600 to the others' 500.

Next up, Weekend at Sunburnie's (ouch) and Resumayday (fun with resumes on YouTube). Tonight's Live Challenge: Resumayday 2: This Time, It's Personal. Now you have to make a video resume on your own. Everybody gets 5000 and the job.

Rounding third with Charlie Charlie, Are You There? We don't know what the Charlie Charlie Challenge is... but we know all three players are moving on, because it's that kind of day!

FTW: A Chinese millionaire bought two gold Apple Watches for his dog. Send a text as this dog. The winner: "I'm a watch dog. Hee hee. #arf." And DOUG BENSON breaks Tom Lennon's streak!

Remember, today's funny becomes tomorrow's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.

  After Steve made it through one-third of his 500 Questions, he got "three Wrongs" and, thus, according to the motto, he was "gone!". Adam then stepped in and used his Sheldon Cooper-esque memory to score $15,000 by getting 16 of his 19 questions correct. Current challenger Pam has to bide her time and hope Adam gets a second "Wrong" on #20, allowing her to choose the category that will, hopefully, knock the giant killer out. Back to the action...

  Another hump day, another week of idiotest to get to. We start with....
 
Jenny & Dan
newlyweds
Taylor & Lindsay
dating

Let the Idiotest....barbecue.

ROUND 1: Newlyweds: Which one has the longest blades? It's...the ceiling fan. 2 20-dollar bills to start it off. Dating: Touch the biggest clue that you probably AREN'T in the USA anymore. The car's dashboard gives them a 120-40 advantage. Newlyweds: Larry's going about this all backwards. What should he do to get into shape- lips, nips, tips or sips? And they're out of shape...and time. Nips is spin spelled backwards. Dating: Which person clearly had a nose job? The upside down boy adds a Benjamin to their score going into break.

ROUND 2: Jenny: Touch the number of buttons you use to dial 9-1-1. Jenny goes with 3. All you need is 2. No score. Taylor: Their one-yr. anniversary's tomorrow. How many days until their NEXT anniversary- zero, one, 30 or 367? One, dummy. 5 shy of 500 right now. Dan: Touch the green & the blue balls. Dan does it. $315. Lindsay: Which is definitely a Jedi night? Jedis Drink Free Fridays for you Star Wars fans out there. 5 shy of 800 going into the battle round.

HEAD TO HEAD: 1) Touch what precedes every divorce. Jenny gets Marriage, not "for." The Newlyweds are leading. One puzzle left..... 2) Touch the car that's parked legally. The dating couple makes a big comeback and the victory with "No cars but red in this row."

$2750 and the Smart Money Round... Logically (if half pipe, third degree & quarter lee), which image below should replace the question mark- flower, wheel, squirrel or cookie? Lindsay tries the ?....nope. Taylor goes for Wheel. An extra grand! $3750.


New game with: Donovan & Jeff (best friends) vs. Nadia & Dana (co-workers).  The latter took the 870-545 victory and it's Smart Money Round time! Touch the white border of the shape containing every letter in IDIOT. Dana tries the square...1 of 2. Can Nadia do it...nope. She picked the rectangle. $1870 for the 2.

Idiotest is over. Be smart. Don't be stupid.

  Dan knocked off a heck of a champ yesterday. He defends his title against..
 
CHAMPION
Dan Feitel
orig. Gillette, NJ
attorney
$27,5
99
Kate Cox
Arlington, VA
writer
Jane Longacre
Ambler, PA
pediatrician

Dan starts with $200 The Other Acting Brother. At the TV timeout, the champ, who for a time had the only money in play, leads with $3800 to $1200 for Kate. Jane is in the red by $400.

Kate finds the Daily Double under $600 Sobriquets. She bets $1000 on this: newspaper: "The Gray Lady". "What is the New York Times?" RIGHT for $5000! She ends up with $5800, tied with Dan for the lead. Jane has $1200 and the first go in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Anatomy, finding the first Daily Double under $1600. She fronts $2000 on this: rhyming names of 2 of the respiratory system's passageways; one leads to the other. She freezes on pharynx & larynx, dropping her to $400. Dan finds the other under $1600 On the Mediterranean. He risks $3000 on this: say hello to the 30+-story Shalom Tower in this city. "What is Tel Aviv?" RIGHT for $16,400! He ends up with $18,000. With Kate on $7000 and Jane on her way out the door with -$2000, it's the champ's game to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Governors": governors of adjacent states, these 2 ex-prosecutors are also adjacent on an alphabetical list of governors.  Correct response: who are Christie & Cuomo?

Dan is originally from New Jersey, so this came as little shock to him. He adds another $18,000, giving him $45,599.

it lands on the R and it's $1,700. Jackie can take the money or go for spin #2. However, all the R's are now ZONK spaces and if Jackie lands on an R, the game is over. Jackie decides to roll on and it's a C. She has $400 more and $2,100 total. This will be the last spin if she goes for
it. She has to land on one of the 4 A's left. All the C's and R's are now zonks. Jackie decides to go for the car and wins...NOTHING. She lands on a ZONK.

Happy Hump Day! We have Sonata Haley, Scott Rodgerson, Cheryl Diggs, and Lauren Frank bidding on a laptop & bag. The $1468 laptop goes to Sonata. She's not playing for a Hyundai, but rather a trip to Belize (6n @ Chabil Mar) in Flip Flop. The price is not $6863. She flops to $6836... and she's right!

Cheryl gets a $650 double swing. She'll party down with a patio set with party cart & margarita maker if she can unlock it in Safe Crackers. The dials for the cart: 0, 6, 8. She dials in a price of $680... but it was $860.

Scott picks up a $1899 electric bike, but he can dart around in a Dodge Dart if he wins Money Game...

Lauren gets off the schneid with an $835 set of sunglasses and a shot at a digital camera & camcorder plus gas, concert tickets & dinner for a year at the checkout line of Grocery Game. On special tonight... sea salt and lots of it. We have Haagen-Dazs sea salt caramel gelato, Kettle sea salt potato chips, Pictsweet sea salt edamame, Balance bare sea salt caramel energy bar, and, of course, McCormick's sea salt grinder. First, the salt, each one is $3.49. A pair: $6.98. The gelato is $4.69. A pair: $9.38, for a total of $16.36. The potato chips are... $3.99, and that'll do it! A total of $20.35 is a win!

$18,060
$21,799

$19,490
$20,880

$22,645 is worth... $1000. $21,799.... $2000 more! $18,060... was the car.

Alan won the Best Nickname Contest in the back of the Man Cave, so he'll go first with 250 Net Losses. At the TV timeout, David has the lead locked down with 3250. Alan is up the gut with 1750. Conrad still in it with 1500.

David orders up the Denny's Daily Double under 750 Remember 2014?. He goes for 3K on this: Tonalist won the Belmont Stakes, preventing this colt from winning the Triple Crown. "What is California Chrome?" RIGHT for 7000! He ends up with 875 to 4500 for Conrad. Alan has 2000 and the board to kick off Double Jeopardy!...

... with the Daily Double CHOSEN (seasons 1-3 now streaming) off the bat under 1500 Tennis-y Williams. He's going yard on this: Venus & Serena Williams are part-owners of this NFL team along with Fergie, Marc Anthony & Gloria Estefan. "Who are the Miami Dolphins?" Welcome back to the game, you're at 4000! David hits the Best Buy Daily Double under 1000 Pitching the Perfect Game. And HE'S throwing it down-field on this: in 2004 MLB rated the performance of this tall lefty "PG-13": a perfect game with 13 strikeouts. "Who is Randy Johnson?" WITH AUTHORITY! He's up to 18,500! He ends the round in the lead, but with only 20,000... heh, ONLY 20,000... he is out of the running for a finale slot. Everyone's still in it for the $5000, though, with Conrad on 14,000 and Alan on 11,000.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Olympic Sports": dominated by players from Asia in the Olympics, this sport is named for an ancestral home of England's Duke of Beaufort. Correct response: what is badminton?

Conrad and Alan are right.... so is David to win with 28,001, giving him the $5000! Conrad goes home with $2000, and Alan, $1000.

  Kim Lazar (Queens, NY) - Attorney
She wants to prove how smart she is.
(+1): Her friend, Katie

She turns to the audience on the 2nd question, getting $500 from that one. Her Plus One enters play for the 3rd, and thanks to her friend, $1,000 is added to her bank. She then jumps the 4th, which had $5,000. She has $11,500 when she sees this...

[Q6]
In addition to bragging rights, South Koreans who win Olympic medals earn the right to do what?
A: Avoid active military duty
B: Disobey traffic laws
C: Serve in the National Assembly
D: Not pay taxes

Kim eliminates B, and she's leaning towards A. She's not really sure, though. After plenty of thought and consideration, she decides to walk with $5,750. The answer, as it turns out, is indeed A.

To end the episode, Lindsey (Phoenix, AZ), John (Trumbull, CT), Sarah (Trumbull, CT) and Chandler (Jersey City, NJ) are chosen from the audience to play Fastest Feet in the hopes of splitting $1,000.

Their answers...
Lindsey: News Feed
John: Like button
Sarah: Timeline
Chandler: FarmVille

The question: Put these Facebook features in order by the date they were launched, starting with the earliest.

They use most of the 60 seconds on their first try, coming up with News Feed, Like button, FarmVille, Timeline... and they're right for $1,000!
