  Rooks has built up two winning performances this week. Tonight, she eyes a third.
Alysha Rooks
orig. New Orleans
Anne Hand
orig. Acton, MA
nonprofit program manager
Kurt Fritzsche
Loveland, OH
medical device engineer

Rooks kicks it off with $200 TV Numbers. At the TV timeout, the champ is in the middle with $2800 to $2000 for Kurt, but Anne leads with $4200.

Anne finds the Daily Double under $600 City by Statue. She bets $3000 on the Bronze Fonz. "What is Los Angeles?" No, it's Milwaukee, dropping her to $2200. She ends the round with $2600. With Rooks on $3600 and Kurt the leader at $4800, it'll be Anne's turn at the board to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 What a Coup!, where she finds the first Daily Double under $1200. She bets $3000 on this: in 1968 this Arab Nationalist Party sent the old government in Iraq to the showers. "Who are the Ba'ath Party?" Right for $6800! Rooks finds the other under $1600 Philosophy. She bets $3000 on this: metaphysics is often divided into 2 areas: ontology, the study of being, & this, the study of the physical universe. "What is ... " Cosmology, dropping her to $6600. She's reduced to spoiler status with that score, while Anne leads with $14,800 to Kurt's $13,600.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "The AFI's 100 Greatest Films": one of the top 20, this 1946 film was based on a short story published as "The Man Who Was Never Born". Correct response: what is "It's a Wonderful Life"?

Rooks had a good idea... after the 30 seconds. No one wrote down the correct response, as Kurt wins $13,201. Rooks leaves with $31,824.

Mike Lawrence
Matt Braunger

While you were busy getting the business from Megatron for taking a selfie with him, we were having a movie release canceled in the Rapid Refresh. Today's #HashtagWars: #NaughtyListBecause. Mike has the lead with 800 to Alice's 700 and Matt's 600.

Middle of the week, middle of the show. Next we have Winter Blunderland (Christmas classics in the making) and Nancy Grace Under Pressure (which is the real hashtag from Nancy Grace). Today's Live Challenge: Letogram. Come up with your own inspirational selfie message. Mike gets 1000 from "I'm just a strong black woman that's been trapped in this hipster body. F**k all y'all skinny bitches."

Hashbad rounds us out as CNN posted a listicle about the most important hashtags in 2014, none of which belonged to @midnight. #Braungerloses.

FTW: "How to Meet Women on the Subway". Step 1: hide that book. Write this man's Amazon review of that book. The winner: "This book left out the basics like "What does a woman look like?" and "How will I know if one is sitting next to me?" One star". And we give it to ALICE!

Tomorrow, it's the Tag Team Thursday Year in Review Special! Remember, today's funny becomes tomorrow's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.

1) Nikhil Ramakrishna: 29,001
2) Nate DeFrank: 22,001
3) Neeraj Joshi: 16,999

Neeraj Joshi is still on the bubble. A score of 17,000 or greater will knock him off. Let's join the scrum at the SJ! Bar...
Jon Wicke
environmental engineer
Jeff Kothe
Culver City, CA
sales rep
Andrew Hard

Jon hit the 8-ball into the side pocket backstage, so he'll pick first with 250 NFL Nicknames, where he finds the Bass Pro Shops Daily Double under 750. He maxes out on "The Ghost" (not Galloping). He times out on Dave Casper of the Raiders, dropping him to -250. Andrew breaks the tie at the end of the round to lead with 3500 to Jeff's 2500. Jon's 2750... means that the man in the middle will get the go-ahead run to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with 500 Triple Crown Winners. Jon finds the first Daily Double under 1500 Buzzard Beaters. He goes four deep on this: his pitching career seemed over in 1974 before a pioneering type of surgery brought him back for 14 more season. "Who is Tommy John?" RIGHT FOR 10,750 and the lead! Back to Triple Crown Winners for the second Daily Double under 2000. Jeff fronts three big ones on this: fittingly, this 1935 Triple Crown winner spent his last years out to stud in Nebraska. "Who is Ron Jeremy?" I don't know where he got that... I don't want to know where he got that. It was Omaha. Back to 3500. He drops further to 2500, but with Jon on 11,750, Andrew on 11,500, and the score to beat still at a healthy 16,999, he can still play spoiler.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Hall of Famers": he submitted his January 14, 1957 retirement letter on Chock Full O'Nuts letterhead. Correct response: who is Jackie Robinson?

Jackie Robinson was vice-president of personnel of that company when he retired. Only Jeff knew that, but the question, can Jeff retire the side? One side, yes, the other side, no. Andrew wins $5000 to his $2000. Jon goes from first to worst with $1000, and going into Christmas week, the leaderboard remains the same.
