  While you were busy watching this show, one person was given a lifetime opportunity to turn a mention of #PointsMe into a shot against two of the heavy hitters of @midnight. Tonight... the results of that match!
Steve Agee
Chris Cubas
Austin, TX
#PointsMe Challenge winner
Tom Lennon
"The Odd Couple"

Tonight's #HashtagWars, in honor of Tolkien Reading Day, #FantasyCelebs. Chris crushes it with 1000 to 900 for Steve and Tom's 800.

Next up, an @midnight classic, Sweet Emoji. Tonight's Live Challenge: Poetry in Lotion. Do you like acrostics? This librarian does, liking to SQUIRT (silent quiet un-interrupted reading time). Come up with an even more inappropriate acrostic. Winner of the 1000 today: Steve for "Tit! It's Tit."

Other City Slogans round us out. Tom falls on his panic boner so our civ can move onto...

FTW: Everyone loves Tom Hanks, even James Corden... and Chris' mom. Well, not everyone. Sarah Jessica Parker. What was Tom talking about that made her so upset? The winner: "F**k Tom Hanks I'm on TV! This is awesome! Listen to my podcast "Canceled" on iTunes. Follow me on Twitter. I love you Maris. #PointsMe #Butts". SURE ENOUGH... CHRIS CUBAS WINS THE INTERNET! He went from nobody to King of the Internet for the next 23.5 hours!

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

  A pair of professors, but one is returning from killing it yesterday. Let's see how Gautam fares against...
Gautam Mukunda

Jacqueline Hawkins
Louisville, KY
English professor
Tim Hague
Flower Mound, TX
tech support retiree

Gautam starts with... the Daily Double under $800 under Moon Walking. He goes for a grand on this: the second moon-landing mission, this Apollo flight got hit by lightning about 36 seconds after launching. "What is Apollo 12?" And he's on the board with $1000. He leads with $3600 to $3000 at the half for Jacqueline. Tim, not too far behind with $2400, but he gets to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Uprisings. Gautam finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Mortal Matters. He bets $1000 again on this: this explorer left his heart buried under a tree in Chitambo, Zambia; the rest of him is buried in Westminster Abbey. "Who is Livingstone?" RIGHT for $5400! Gautam is going for the trifecta with $1600 Uprisings. He goes $3800 deep on this: this country's 2010 Jasmine Revolution kicked off the Arab Spring. "What is Tunisia?" There's the triple double with $9600! But he only has $11,600 to Jacqueline's $17,000. Tim still in it as well with $10,000.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Actresses": for playing a legal assistant in a 2000 film, she became the first actress to crash the $20 million salary barrier. Correct response: who is Julia Roberts?

The film was "Erin Brockovich". Wagering, very much important... and Jacqueline mastered it to win $23,300. Gautam leaves with $25,401 and this lesson: if you're going to play, play to win.

If Morri wants to continue, she will roll again BUT all the C spaces are now ZONKS. If she lands in a ZONK, it is GAME OVER. Morri decides to roll on and hit an R. She has $1,700 more and $2,200 total. This is the last roll. If Morri decides to go on, she must hit one of the 4 remaining A's while trying to avoid the 8 zonks on the board.

We need a guy to guess if she HAS these items and it is Cristian the Viking. If Cristian is right about her items, he will get $500. Item 1 is CREDIT CARDS. He says YES and he is RIGHT. They both have $500. Next is MORE THAN $10. He says YES and he is RIGHT. They both have $1,000. The last item is a BUSINESS CARD. Cristian says YES and he is RIGHT one more time (it was her business card as a CHIROPRACTOR. They both have $1,500. Cristian keeps his cash and passes on MAYONNAISE MOUTHWASH in the small box(ZONK)! Jennifer can take Curtain 2 or keep her cash! She takes Curtain 2 and wins a trio of HDTVs including a 59" Plasma, 50" LED HDTV, 40" 4K HDTV and surround sound system worth $6,700!

Karen/Bennet (spider/bee together since JHS and married 46 years). They are playing for a Fiat 500 Pop worth $17,295! The game is the 15 cards game. 13 of the cards have either $200 or $400.

They pick a consolation pick which is 5 and $200/2 = $100. 2 had the other zonk.

Lisa Lorenz, Sarah Malone, Norland Skelton & Brian Moore lead off hump day at 33 with an HDTV. The $1200 set goes to Norland, who could take a Galaxy Tab with Beats by Dre headphones to Vail (5n @ Vail Marriott Mountain Resort) if he beats Safecrackers. His dials for the tablet: 0, 7, 5. He goes with $570 for the combination... And he UNLOCKS HIS WIN!

Brian takes a $700 pair of bikes, but can he ride out in a 2015 VW New Beetle? If he wins Cover Up. For the record, winter turns into spring in the objects to be covered up.

2 3 5 8 9

$23,699 to start? No, but the 24 is right. $23,420? Nope... and not a one is right to continue. It's $23,187.

Lisa gets a $1398 pair of patio heaters and a chance to relax in a hot tub if she can Pushover.

3 5 9 1 7 4 0 2 8

She pushes to $5917.... pushed one too many. It was $9174.

Norland, the only one to win his game, gets $1000 to add onto his stash. Meanwhile, Alice wins a $942 cutlery set and a stab at a 2015 Fiat 500 Pop in Stack the Deck. The deck: 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9. She gets two cards to help... and the help gives us $19,___. It should be noted that the 9 was the first card to come down. That should've immediately tipped off the 1 as the first. Why she wasted that pick on the 1 is ANYONE'S guess. Speaking of guesses, hers of $19,687... is wrong. It was $19,827.

We're getting ready for spring with the Price Look of the Week, valued at $2370. Cassie Meyer has a shot at a laptop, an ATV, and a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. Which is the Most Expensive? She goes for the ATV. The laptop: $2315. The refrigerator: $1599. The ATV... $3849!

Sarah has one more shot to get it right with a foosball table. The table: $800. The winner... Carla Herring, who will try and fish out $50,000. It's PLINKO TIME! With chips from Drew, a $72 slushie maker, and a $65 steam iron, she wins $10,000!

But Cassie would meet Norland in the Showcase. First, get energy from an espresso machine, a home gym, and a 2015 Nissan Versa S Plus. Top winner Cassie passies, and Norland bids $21,000. Cassie gets the royal treatment with trips to Hawaii (6n @ Hawaiian Prince Hotel Waikiki), Spain (6n @ Hotel Casa 1800 in Seville), & London (6n). She bids $24,500. Actual price: $21,915. Actual price of Norland's Showcase... $23,545 to win $32,803 worth of stuff!

1) Chris Yoxsimer: 44,500
2) Lukas Cimbal: 29,002
3) Nikhil Ramakrishna: 29,001

For the last three or so weeks, the chalkboard at the Man Cave has not changed. Will someone do it today?

Robert Flaxman

Trevor caught aces full on the river backstage, so he gets to go first with 250 Big Numbers. At the TV timeout, Trevor and Robert are all knotted up with 2750. Rick is on 2000.

As a reminder, to land on the leaderboard, you have to beat Nikhil Ramakrishna's 29,001.

Last category in play is Books. The Denny's Daily Double is under 500. Rick bets half of his five grand on this: George Will wrote "A Nice Little Place on the North Side", a biography of this place at 100. "What is Wrigley Field?" Right for 7500! He gets dinged up a bit to drop to 7250 at the half, still in the lead. Robert has 5250, but Trevor will get the board for his G, as we start up Double Jeopardy!...

... by picking off the Geico Daily Double under 2000 50 Home Run Club. He maxes out on this: only Jimmie Foxx & this man have hit 50 for the Red Sox. He blanks on David Ortiz, and Big Papi leads to a big deficit, -$1000. Robert finds the other under 2000 First Time, Long Time, going four deep on this: a 1964 win began Notre Dame's streak of beating this team in football 43 straight times, through 2006. "Who is Navy?" Right for 15,750. He ends with 18,750, well out of the reach of Rick (8750) and Trevor (5500). Another important number: 29,001. A bet of 10,251 or more (and a correct response) will surpass it.

FINAL SPORTS JEOPARDY! in "Auto Racing": one of the 2 last names of father-son pairs who have both won Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year awards. Correct response: what is Andretti or Vukovich?

Rick is the only one to get it (and he went with the more obvious of the two)... but Robert wins on a bet of nothing. He won't play for $50,000, but he's happy with $5000. Rick leaves with $2000, while Trevor takes away a G.
