ROUND 1B: Jimmy Fallon is so boyish... (HOW BOYISH IS HE?) ... Last week the dry cleaner found a yo-yo in his coat pocket and a (BLANK) in his pants!

ROUND 2B: You may not know this, but my grandmother was a geriatric professional wrestler. She was known as Gram Slam. For her finisher in the ring, she'd crush your windpipe with her (BLANK).
- Amy has "walker"... We have cane, walking stick, wrinkled thigh, and nasty knee-his. Kenan has a walker for 2, so Mohamed needs to match 2 to win.
ROUND 2?: Dumb Dora was so dumb... (HOW DUMB IS SHE?) .. She wanted to catch a jellyfish, so she loaded up her fishing hook with (BLANK).

Jessica won over $26,000 last night. And she's just getting started.

Jessica Holloway
The Woodlands, TX
art education student

Siobhan Fabio
Little Rock, AR
Evan Caris
Decatur, GA
student & writer

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Wheel of Jeopardy!, Food & Drink, The Book's Censored Editions, History, Charles Darwin, The Voyage of a Beagle

Jessica starts wtih $200 Food & Drink. At the TV timeout, Jessica has $5400 to $1800 for Siobhan. EVan is on $600.

Siobhan finds the Daily Double under $400 The Book's Censored Editions. She fronts everything on this: seen as obscene, Richard Burton's 1885 version of this book of mideast fables was published in major cuts. "What is the "Arabian Nights"?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $4000! She ends up wtih $4200 to $7400 for Jessica. Evan is on $2400. He gets command of the board when we start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Bartlett's, A to Z; Places; Composing, Decomposing; "Q" Inside, Foreign Film Awards, Ergonomic Injuries

... with $400 Places, where he finds the first Daily Double under $1200. He goes for the level on this: the lush island of Naxos has been called "the Green Leaf of" this sea. "What is the Aegean?" RIGHT for $4400! Siobhan finds the other under $2000 Bartlett's, A to Z. She goes for $1600 on this: Z: attributed to this revolutionary, "It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees!" "Who is Emiliano Zapata?" RIGHT for $18,200! She ends up with $19,400 to Jessica's $14,200. Evan is on $8400.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "TV Dramas": so that viewers wouldn't think it was about opera, the "R" in this show's logo was turned into a gun. Correct response: what is "The Sopranos"?

Jessica is the only one to get it right to win another $28,400, giving her $54,401 for two.

Wednesday's trading starts off with a couple playing GOLD RUSH for a Toyota Yaris iA worth $17,945. They are Michael and Kristin(chicken/bear). We have 8 boxes and 6 have gold. Two have dynamite. If they can mine 5 pieces of gold in a row, they will win the Yaris. The dynamite will blow them back to the bottom. If they find two dynamites, the game is over. Their first pick is 6 and it is GOLD. They have $500 and go on with 4. It's GOLD and they have $1,000. They go on with 2 and it is GOLD. They have $2,000. They pick 3 and it is GOLD one more time! They have $4,000. Will they go for a SWEEP or stop with the $4,000? The numbers left are 4, 5, 7 and 8. They decide to STOP! For fun, Kristin would have picked 7 and Michael would have picked 8. Kristin would have ZONKED OUT. Michael would have WON the car. 1 and 7 were the ZONKS. But they still leave with $4,000!

Three people are next - Phillip the prisoner, Allison the cheerleader and Leopold the weird fruit guy. Phillip gets $1,500, Allison gets $1,500 and Leopold gets...NOTHING. Oh well. But watch this. Phillip can give his $1,500 to Leopold for Curtain 2. He does and Phillip wins a MOBILE PHONE BOOTH(ZONK)! Allison can buy the small box for $1,500. She does. Leopold has $3,000 and Allison has a diamond bracelet from Diamonds by Angie worth $4,800! Leopold has $3,000 and can buy Curtain 3. He keeps the cash and passes on a trip to Singapore for 6N at the Scarlet Hotel worth $10,168!

Westin the old school clown gets a clue from Dealings the LMAD Tabloid. It's about Patrick the crew guy - he still hasn't found love in 1,500 days! The clue is - HE USED THE PRIZE BEHIND CURTAIN 1 TO HAVE "DATE NIGHT UNDER THE STARS". Will Westin take that or the mini-curtain? He takes the mini-curtain and passes on a camping package from Stansport and an Ocean Kayak from Disrupt Sports and a Camera Package with DSLR and Go Pro Action Camera worth $3,913! Westin takes $1,000 over the mini-curtain which was a Harley-Davidson MOTORCYCLE worth $7,599!

Andre in the dashiki is playing RED OR BLACK. Tiffany presents Andre with an oversized deck of 52 cards. Andre cuts them and Tiffany deals the top 5 on the board. Andre starts with $500 and has to predict what the color of the card is - RED OR BLACK. For every right answer, he will double his money. If he plays a perfect game - he will go from $500/$1K/$2K/$4K/$8K/$16K. Here's the catch. If Andre is wrong, he goes back down to $500. His first pick on card 1 is RED and it is the ACE OF SPADES. Card 2 is BLACK and it is the 10 of spades. He has $1,000 and STOPS. Wow. :) He plays it out for fun and went red, black, red. He would have nailed all of them for $8,000! He can keep the $1,000 or take the LMAD Envelope. He takes the envelope and wins a JONATHAN AND WAYNE HUG SANDWICH COUPON(ZONK)!

Emily the Ballerina(graduate of the Boston Conservatory) gets $500 or the Big Box. She takes the Box and wins a HOT ROD RECLINER(ZONK)! She can take $1,000 or Curtain 2. She goes for Curtain 2 and wins a GAME ROOM including an Air Hockey Table and a Crosley Bluetooth Jukebox from Game Room Guys worth $4,498! Will she keep the game room or take the small box which is a 2-n-1 Touchscreen laptop and a $1,000 GC to the Google Play Store and because this is the decade of deals we are giving Emily a 10 YEAR subscription to Scribd - the source for books, podcasts and more. We throw in some on the go goods - AND A TRIP TO LAS VEGAS! It's a stay at for 4N at the Platinum Hotel - that whole deal is worth $8,195!

Last deal of the day involves the LMAD Marbles Game. We have 7 marbles that are good(blue) and one that is red(bad). Leeanna the Fly and Billy the Clown are our players. In round 1, Blue Marbles are worth $500. And Leeanna is OUT in round 1. Billy has $500 and buys Curtain 3. It's a trip to the SWISS CHEESE ALPS!(ZONK!)

Who trades for a shot at $25,248? It's Allison who trades her bracelet!

She picks 2. 1 was a new kitchen with range, refrigerator and dishwasher worth $6,717! 3 was the LMAD Vault with $1,755 in cash! Allison wins the BIG DEAL behind 2 and flips out(literally!) It starts with an entertainment center from along with a 55" UHD TV - ALONG WITH A 7N EUROPEAN CRUISE OF CROATIA from Katarina Line Cruises ALONG WITH EVERYTHING IN THE BIG DEAL! That means Allison has the cash, the kitchen, the tv, the entertainment center AND the cruise worth $25,248!

Martin Nicol (Las Vegas, NV) begins this episode with $10,000 and 2 lifelines.

What "Clair de Lune" composer's final piano composition was written in exchange for a load of coal to heat his freezing Paris flat?
A: Maurice Ravel
B: Hector Berlioz
C: Claude Debussy
D: Erik Satie

Martin brings in his wife, Cheree, and the only name she recognizes is C, but she isn't sure if that's the answer. Martin uses the 50:50, leaving A and C. He decides to guess A... but it's C! With that, he leaves with $5,000.

Greg Anderson (Las Vegas, NV) is a graphic designer.

In 2017, a NY Girl Scout troop fittingly pledged how much money from its cookie sales to fund a Central Park statue honoring suffragettes?
A: $1,780
B: $1,814
C: $1,920
D: $2,008

Greg says that the suffragette movement was in the 19th century, so he goes with B... but it's C! That means he leaves with nothing.

Mike Chearney (Baltimore, MD) is a plant operator at Hoover Dam. He gets to $5,000 with some audience help, then reaches $20,000 to end the show for today. Mike will be back tomorrow!
