JEOPARDY! ROUND: TV Sitcoms by Mom, They're History!, ACC Schools, B Off!, Carve Out, A Place For Yourself.

Austin starts with $200 TV Sitcoms by Mom. AT the TV timeout, Austin leads with $4400 to $2800 for Lisa. Brian is on $600.

Austin finds the Daily Double under $800 A Place For Yourself. He fronts $4200 on this: Undershaw, home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, included this writing room, perhaps decorated in scarlet? "What is a study?" RIGHT for $11,400! He ends up with $12,600 to Lisa Rhae's $4800. Brian, on $2400, will get the first go in...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: The National Recording Registry, Going to the Mattresses, There'll Always Be an England, 3-Letter Words, Power to the Papal, "Au"thors.

... with $400 "Au"thors, finding the first Daily Double under $1200. He bets it all on this: confess that you know the name of this prolific writer & Bishop of Hippo. He blanks on Augustine. He can make up for it on the next Daily Double under $1600 There'll Always Be an England. He wagers the $2000 max on this: Edward the Confessor died without a direct heir to the throne in this crucial year of English history. "What is 1066?" RIGHT for $2400! He ends up with $7200 to $6400 for Lisa Rhae. But with $15,400, it's Austin's game yet again to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Visual Vocabulary": a Latin word for a sea creature, in photography, it's a color that conveys nostalgia. Correct response: what is sepia?

Everyone's right as Austin goes over the $400K mark with $411,000 for 12!

Essence Atkins

Affion Crockett

SNAP JUDGMENT: Thanks to guessing whether an ample-bosomed server named Sherese went to college - she did - Team Essence leads with 200 to 100.

GET A CLUE: Going to "Arnold the gay dude from Guatemala" for the ladies: how many people were in his car when coming to America: 3, 5, more than 7, or just him? They go with "just him". But it was him... and his parents. Team Affion leads, 300 to 200.

GOING DEEP: This week, we pulled Deborah, Lisa, & Jake to play with Arnold to answer more questions. Affirmatives are worth 300, and the team with the most points at the end wins. After 4 questions, Team Essence wins, 800 to 600!

$10,000 BONUS ROUND: Choose one of the four from the previous round, and answer yes/no questions about them. Get 10 matches in 60 seconds, and you win $10,000. They play with... JAKE, getting... only 7. But they do leave with $800 for the 800 they won in the front game.

Hump Day at Dream Car Week begins with a JAGUAR! It could go to one of these four - Simara Schneider, Tim Hardebeck, Tracy Harden, or Dale Bautista - but first they have to play for a 3D 4KTV. The $2325 TV goes to Tracy who gets to play for a Toyota Prius C1 in Cover Up.

      5 7
    7 8 0
  2 1 4 9
3 9 8 6 5
2 7 5 9 3

First try is $29,740... 2 is right. $27,183... the 1 & the 3 are right. So we're guaranteed another play with $22,193. But is it $22,153? No, it's $22,163.

Tim gets a $1299 camera package. He'll take it with him to Germany (6n @ Best Western Sindelfingen City, tickets to Mercedes Museum) if he wins Pick-a-Number.

$ ? 5 9 0
Numbers of great importance: 6 7 9

He picks the 7... and auf wiedersehen!

Dale gets a $1575 set of Helen Ficalora jewelry. He'll get a Chevy Camaro if he knows when That's Too Much! He thinks $26,649 is too much... and he's not even close. It was $27,595. So $27,995, right next door, was too much. He makes up for it at the Big Wheel.

Meanwhile, Danielle Anthony gets a $1374 smartphone with car-nav system. She's not playing for the Jaguar, though... but $10,000 is a nice down payment. Her game is 1/2 Off. She gets a $52 label maker, a $90 skin brush, a $70 electric toothbrush, and a $30 yogurt maker. She's down to 4, 5, 11, and 13. She picks #11... NOTHING. It was #5.

Jacob Blalock wins a $769 coffee package and a shot at Stella McCartney accessories and a washer/dryer in Do the Math. The money line is $1356. He wants to ADD. The accessories are $4465. The washer/dryer... $3109.

If Simara wants to play for the Jaguar, she needs to act here on a MacBook pro. The price: $2399. The winner... SIMARA! She's playing for the Jaguar F-Type S Coupe worth $88,395 in Let'em Roll. She gets the full compliment of 3 rolls. On the dies today: the three cars PLUS $2500, $5000, and $10,000. First roll is... three cars, $7500. She tries again... $12,500. Last roll... $20,000. Can't really cry for that. It's $20,000.

Will anyone win an Audi today? No. But Danielle will meet Dale in the Showcase.

First up, we have a treadmill, a Vespa, and a Fiat 500 Pop. Top winner Danielle passes, and Dale bids $22,999. Danielle has dream car parts with a trip to the Atlanta Motor Speedway (5n @ Ellis Hotel, three lap driving experience), a kitchen island with patio group, and a Chevy Trax LS. She bids $18,000. Actual price of Dale's Showcase... $22,838. Over by $161. Danielle's Showcase is... $34,643 to win a total of $36,259!

Last week, Simone, after complaining about the less-than-stellar living arrangements in camp, was left out to dry.

Post Tribal, Ryan is already wearing her clothes. He touches base with Patrick to make sure Lauren is the next to go over Ali. Ali talks to Devon about how Patrick doesn't trust everyone.

HEROES: Ben & Chrissy are in prime position, but Ben wants Ashley to stay around because she's fun and a hard worker. Ashley, on the other hand, is attracted to JP.... which could spell trouble for Ben.

HEALERS: Cole & Jessica, clearly crushing on each other, are on Joe's radar. Joe is concerned with Cole knowing that he has a hidden idol... and telling Jessica about it. Also on Joe's radar: the food situation and how he doesn't like it. Cole talks to Roark & Desi about the hidden idol in Joe's person. Will he be blindsided?

HUSTLERS: Patrick is looking for the hidden idol on his camp. The rest of the tribe... completely in on his plan.

REWARD/IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: Sandblast - An obstacle course leads to using sandbags to knock blocks off a ledge. Then stack those blocks on top of each other. First tribe to finish wins four live chickens. Second wins a dozen eggs. Third wins a trip to see Uncle Jeff at the Tribal Council Hut o'Love.

TRIBAL COUNCIL #3: Patrick takes the blame for the loss, but wants to vote Lauren out with Devon, Ali, and Ryan. Lauren lays it in on Patrick for the loss. Ali is trying to defend him.
- Lauren: PATRICK
- Patrick: LAUREN
- Everyone else: PATRICK.

By a vote of 4-1, Patrick... The tribe has spoken.

Next week: the three magic words: "Drop your buffs."

It's Day 3 of our "Salute To Texas!" (J-Note: This series of shows were taped before Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas - especially Houston).

He is a married solar consultant, who is also a rideshare company worker. Clarissa Spear is from Corpus Christi, Texas but originally from McAllen, Texas. She is a married office manager as well as a real estate agent.

The $2,000 Tossup is FOOD & DRINK. Erik has $2,000 with SOFT-SERVE ICE CREAM. We add this to the wheel - $10,000 cash from Visit Texas! Erik starts our CROSSWORD ROUND. The clue is QUITE A PAIR. There are four words that fit the clue. He misses. Clarissa hits Lose a Turn. Evan loses $3,350 on Bankrupt. Eric Bankrupts as well. Clarissa loses $2,450 on Bankrupt. Evan solves LIPS BINOCULARS ACES SOCKS for $2,000. He has $3,000.

Clarissa risks $3,000 on wins $10,000 on her mystery round risk, picks up the WC with a $500 G, dominates and solves DON'T GET SIDETRACKED for $13,950 and the WC. That also means that someone at home wins $10,000 as well with their SPIN ID. It's MW6474471! Hope you win!

Evan starts the Express Wedge/Prize Puzzle round which is WHAT ARE YOU DOING? He picks up the $1,000 Heritage GC with a $500 G but misses. Erik picks up the 1/2 Car with a $500 N but loses that on Bankrupt. Clarissa misses. Evan picks up the 1/2 Car with a $500 W and solves HIKING TO A WATERFALL for $3,450 in cash and GC, the useless 1/2 Car and a trip to Costa Rica worth $6,928! Evan has $13,378 in cash and prizes!

Erik solves QUARTERBACK SNEAK for $3,200. She leaves with $5,200. Clarissa had one big round and leaves with $13,950 in cash! Evan hangs on with $16,378 in cash and prizes including the trip to COSTA RICA!

The pre-bonus round total is $35,528. Evan chooses THING over CHARACTER and IN THE KITCHEN.

Evan lands on the R in AMERICA'S wedge. With the RSTLNE and her choices of M C D A we have:

  Shad Willingham (Santa Rosa, CA) gets things going today with $30,000, but he's out of lifelines.

Because two of the states don't border each other, which of these road trips would be impossible without traveling through at least one additional state?
A: ME to NH to MA to NY
B: ND to WY to UT to NV
C: TN to MO to OK to CO
D: GA to NC to VA to MD

At first, Shad thinks that ND and WY don't border each other. He tries to visualize each pair of states, thinking that GA to NC is also a possibility. With that, he's thinking B or D. He thinks about his options at this point in the game, then eventually, he goes with D... but it's B! As a result, he leaves with $5,000.

Travis Griffin (Marietta, OH) secures $5,000, then uses the 50:50 at $7,000 before seeing this...

Inspiring the name of a national charity for at-risk-teens, which character from the famous nursery rhyme "Monday's Child" "...has far to go"?
A: Tuesday's Child
B: Thursday's Child
C: Friday's Child
D: Saturday's Child

Travis turns to the audience, and 43% say A. He then calls on his Plus One, Adam Nedeff; he remembers the part "Wednesday's Child was full of woe" thanks to the Addams Family, and he figures that the Tuesday and Wednesday parts should rhyme. With that, Travis says A... but it's B (11%)! That means he leaves with $5,000.

(C-Note: full disclosure - both Travis and Adam are friends of this site)

With little time left, it's time for some "Thousandaire" with Anna King...

First coined by biologist Richard Dawkins in 1976, what common Internet term derives from a Greek word meaning "to imitate"?
A: Blog
B: Hashtag
C: Meme
D: Tumblr

Anna decides to go with C... and she's right for $1,000!
