While you were watching the umpteenth pitchy remake/parody of Iggy Azalea's "Fancy"...We were Rapidly Refreshing... and yes, Benedict Cumberbatch was involved. Today's #HashtagWars: #RuinAPresident. Because the news media has already done that for years. No, it's Constitution Day. The board goes 700, 600, 500, Beth leading.

Out of the break, we get into [BLANK] Had Me Like and Subreddit and Forgeddit (Reddit subtopics as presented by one of the site's founders Alexis O'Hannon). Tonight's Live Challenge: Pet-zzeria. It's a big week for hamsters, especially in Australian Pizza Huts. What's an even worse promotion for a pizza chain? Adam gets 1000 from "Spin the wheel to determine the secret ingredient in your mystery stuffed crust!!! (Full disclosure: five of the seven mystery ingredients are just more crust)." Beth and Nate... also get 1000.

While we're at it, it's Extreme YouTube Challenge. Nate, with 2750, is going back to Vanderbilt.

FTW: Another earthquake in Oklahoma. Write your own reaction as a confused Oklahoma citizen. The winning reaction... sad but true... "You think the earthquakes have something to do with all the restless souls of them dead Indians? ...nah, probably just Obama." And the winner of the Internet... the gimpy man in the boot, ADAM CAYTON-HOLLAND!

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

  On the Wednesday show, Bill is trying to become the first repeat champ of 2014-2015 against...
Bill Cossen

orig. Lexington, SC
PhD candidate in history
Erica Hersh
South Orange, NJ
health communications writer
Howard Jacobs
Pikesville, MD

Bill starts with $200 The Americans, finding the Daily Double under $1000. He bets it all on this: best known for a different work, in 1833 he produced a "common version" of the Holy Bible "with amendments of the language". "Who is Thoreau?" No, it was Noah Webster, leaving him penniless. He recovers to $3600 to Erica's $5200. Howard's $2200 gives him the board to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Military Firsts. Bill finds the first Daily Double under $1600 the Supreme Court. He bets $2600 on this from Justice Sandra Day O'Connor: "A lot more people got to know what we sounded like on December 11, 2000, when the oral argument in this case became the first one released for same-day broadcast." "What is Bush vs. Gore?" Right for $11,000! He finds the other under $1600 Critters. He wagers $3000 on this: this largest sea turtle is the only one that lacks a hard shell, having instead skin with tiny bone plates. He blanks on the leatherback turtle, leaving him with $12,000, where he ends the round. Erica has $8400 to Howard's $6200.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Musical Theater": in "Godspell" this character leads the company in singing, "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord". Correct response: who is Judas Iscariot OR John the Baptist?

Howard is right with one name. Bill is right with the other to win $16,801, giving him $31,801 for two!

  Josh Eldridge (Tazewell, TN)
He recently quit his job as an auto parts salesman to start crossing items off of his bucket list. This is the first item on that list.
(+1): His friend, Cory Anotado (a.k.a. Pacdude; won $60,000 on The Chase)

He brings in Cory for the 3rd question, and with that help, Josh adds $100 to his bank. Eventually, he gets help from the audience on the 9th, but he's not confident with the results, so he uses his Jump on it, leaping over $5,000. He then sees this with $61,600 in his bank...

[Q10] ($2,000)
Since the Aleutian Islands cross the International Date Line, what state can be considered to be the most northern, eastern, and western in the U.S.?
A: Florida
B: Alaska
C: Maine
D: Hawaii

Josh remembers that the Aleutian Islands are part of Alaska, so he goes with B... and he's right! He has $63,600 in his bank as he moves on to Classic Millionaire... tomorrow!

In the nightcap, Micah Wiginton (Aberdeen, NJ), nine months pregnant and due in two-and-a-half weeks, loses her cash when she goes with the audience on the only award to be named after a real woman. Sixty-seven percent went with Emmy, but it was Tony.

Nick Markovich (Croton-on-Hudson, NY) rode his game to $56,600. He returns tomorrow with his jump.
