So far, Gilbert Collins and Dhruv Gaur have earned a spot in the next round of the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions. Tonight is game 3 of the quarters, and it's a big one.

James Holzhauer
Las Vegas
professional sports gambler
32 games, $2,462,216
Alan Dunn
Johns Creek, GA
software development manager
five games, $120,802
Lindsey Shultz
physician & healthcare analyst
four games, $101,002

JEOPARDY! ROUND: It's Not Australia, Tech Stuff, The Name of the Game, "All" In, The 2010s, Reality Show Breakouts.

James draws first and goes with $2000 "All" In. Lindsey finds the Daily Doubl eundeR $800 The 2010s. She has $1800 to $2000 for James. She goes all-in on this: in 2011 this planet completed its first orbit since its discovery 165 years early. "What is Neptune?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $3600! She ends up with $4000 in a tie with Alan. James is in the lead with $8800.

Closest to Alex starts Double Jeopardy!, and that's Alan...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Science & Exploration, American World's Fairs, That's Entertainment!, Past Bedtime, Initials to Roman Numerals to Numbers III; This Time, It's Personal.

... with the first Daily Double under $1600 Science & Exploration. Scores are as depicted above. Alan bets all of it on: in the early 1800s this German studied the ocean current of South America, one off South America's west coast is named for him." "Who is Alexander von Humboldt?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $8000! James finds the other under $2000 Initials to Roman Numerals to Numbers III. He has $17,600 to the others' $5600. James bets, and now I'm quoting, "a truly disappointing $1109." Here you go... for Laura's dad in the "Little house on the Prairie" books. "What is 101?" Charles Ingalls... CI... 101. That's $18,709! He ends up with $30,309. With Lindsey on $10,800 to Alan's $6000, the third spot in the semis is James' to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "20th Century America": In 1939, turned down by 2 local theaters, Howard University was able to get an outdoor venue for this singer's yearly concert. Correct response: who was Marian Anderson?

Alan at least knew what he was going on about when he responded "the one who sang at the LM". Too bad it cost him everything. Lindsey's right to go to $14,000. But James wins with $30,635.

Wednesday's trading starts off with Wendy the Graduate(HS English Teacher). She gets the LMAD Money Tree(a/k/a the Currency Bush). It has $220 and a teeny envelope with mystery cash. Will she take that or the small box? Leftovers go to Doctor Clifton. Wendy takes the tree. Clifton passes on $500 for the box which has CHOCOLATE STILETTOS(ZONK)! Wendy can keep the tree or take the Big Box. Leftovers go to Stephen the Nerd. Wendy keeps the tree.

Annie the New York Pizza Rat is playing 0 TO 80 for a Mazda 3 Sedan worth $22,120! Here's how the game works. We have a car on stage and Annie will pick tokens from the token bag. She has 4 picks of tokens to get her car up to 80 mph. The tokens in the token bag range from 0 to 40mph. If Annie gets her car up to 80mph in 4 picks or less, she will win the Mazda. Her first pick is 20mph. Next is 0. She needs at least a 20 to stay in the game. Annie passes on $500 to pick 10 and she is OUT. Consolation pick is 5X $10 = $50!

Shelly in the Green(works for the Denver Broncos - choreographer/assistant coach for the cheerleaders - and we have a dance off). She has four boxes on stage - red, green, blue and yellow. Each box contains a prize or a zonk. We show Shelly the Red one for free. It's $500 in cash! Shelly goes for the Green box knowing she can lose the $500 if it is a zonk!

Cynthia the Renaissance Lady gets a book from LMAD Book Club called "Keep on Scootin' - Tiffany Coyne's Guide to Van Nuys". It has the LMAD Mystery Cash Bookmark. Cynthia can take that or Curtain 1. She takes Curtain 1 and passes on $600 + hidden in the book is a DIAMOND RING from Diamonds by Angie worth $4,800! Cynthia wins a REMOTE CONTROL COUCH(ZONK)!

Two people are next - Kimberlisa the Army Brat (for real) and Joseph the Birthday Hamster Mess(color guard teacher). They are playing for an AUDI A3 SEDAN worth $36,040! Here's how the game works. Kimberlisa and Joseph must spell WINNER to win the Audi. We have 8 numbers on stage - 6 have the letters to spell winner and 2 have zonks. The last dealer to spell WINNER while avoiding the zonks will be the proud owner of a 2020 Audi A3 Sedan! Kimberlisa goes first after picking the $100 envelope to Joseph's $50. She picks 3 and It's the N. Joseph picks 2 and it's an I. Kimberlisa passes on $500 and picks 8. It's the other N. The board is now _ I N N _ _ . Joseph STOPS for $500. He leaves with $550. Ok. That means Kimberlisa has this choice - we have three letters and five numbers - 1, 4, 5, 6, 7. Kimberlisa STOPS with $1,000! For legal purposes we find that the letters were under 1, 4 and 6. 5 and 7 had the zonks.

  Last time we were all together, we unmasked the Skeleton (or should that be de-boned) as Paul Shaffer. We're left with 11 Masked Singers remaining as we come off of the World Series break. And tonight, not one but TWO of them are going to be unmasked in front of Fox and country.

- The Rottweiler has been judged since he's "been in the game", and now he "wants it that way". He goes with "Love Runs Out" by OneRepublic.
- The Ladybug wants everyone to know that her childhood was less than rosy, and now she wants to show "pieces of me" with "Juice" by Lizzo.
- The Tree was never made to feel like she was "home alone". She goes with "Think" by the late, great Aretha Franklin.
- The Penguin was on the D-list growing up, but she realizes that stars like her shine the brightest in tragedy. She sings "All About That Bass" by Meghan Trainor.
- The Flower  never took a voice lesson, but is about to blossom with "Cheap Thrills" by Sia.
- The Fox never fit in, but kids was nice to him growing up. He goes with "Hey Look Ma, I Made It" by Panic! At the Disco

It's break time, which means that it's time to eliminate one of these six, the one with the lowest audience votes.
- ELIMINATED: The Penguin

UNMASKING #6: Before we clip this bird's wings, let's get some words from the panel. Jenny goes with Nicole Byer of "Nailed It!" fame. Ken thinks it's Wanda Sykes. Nicole says Star Jones. Robin thinks it's Mindy Kaling.
- THE PENGUIN IS... Actress & game show host SHERRI SHEPHERD!

In the hastily-edited nightcap, the panel is joined by Anthony Anderson, and we're joined by five more singers.

- The Black Widow feels at home in her costume, but she can make herself at home in any nook or cranny. She sings "Believe" by Cher (Clue: whipped cream and crackers).
- Mr. Nicole Scherzinger... sorry, The Thingamajig says he uses his voice, which he got from his dad, to win over the ladies. He goes with "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" by the Temptations (Clue: a sign language dictionary).
- The Butterfly has had her love of music reignited by this show. She sings "Don't Know Why" by Norah Jones (Clue: a forensic kit).
- The Leopard has traveled on the road with friends as a youngster, played jazz, and even performed at the White house. He sings "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry (Clue: a trio of old cameras).
- The Flamingo used to hate the sound of her own voice, and calls being on stage one of her biggest fears. She has since emerged as a triple threat. She sings "Never Enough" by Loren Allred (Clue: an NAACP Image Award).

After the votes, the next singer out is...
- ELIMINATED: The Black Widow

UNMASKING #7: Nicole goes with Raven Symone, Robin agrees. Anthony says Drew Barrymore, Jenny says Amber Riley, and Ken goes with Miranda Lambert.

Survivor: Island of the Idols
by Chico Alexander & Jason Block

bird, new, square, twitter iconInstagram

Last week, Elaine went to the Island of the Idols and dared to take Sandra & Boston Rob up on their offer to steal a vote block... which she used to the point where the writer of this recap could only offer a chef's kiss, paving the way to block Jason's vote... and then kick him out entirely. Now 14 are remaining, and a merge is looming.

Old Vokai is down at Lairo, but with a merge looming, they're convinced that they're not out. Meanwhile, the fire is out, and Kellee demands to put it back together when Jamal can't. If THAT wasn't enough, Noura and Jamal go at it over rice to the point where she wants to build an alliance with Janet and Karishma to vote him out.

ISLAND OF THE IDOLS: Janet, by random draw, is sent to see Rob & Sandra and learn a lesson about calculated risk - "to not make moves without knowing why you're doing them." They make an offer - a win would mean "safety without power" - she would be immune from being voted out, BUT at the cost of her own vote. Janet decided not to play the game, thinking it had trap written all over it. Sure enough... it did. Both Sandra & Rob agree that she made the right call.

IMMUNTY CHALLENGE: Faulty Towers. Toss coconuts into the basket to make the basket heavier which triggers a tower of puzzle pieces to collapse. Use the heavy pieces to solve the puzzle that reveals the logo. First tribe to do that wins.

The Lairo all wanted to vote Dean, because he's too sneaky to be trusted (spearheaded by Jamal). Jamal & Nick tell him that the vote would be Noura instead. Meanwhile, Kellee's idol from the Island expires tonight, so if she's going to use it, it has to be now. Will she use it to save Dean? She tells Dean that he's the target and that she'll use the Idol to save him.

TRIBAL COUNCIL #7:  Noura is gunning for Dean. Dean says that she's already gunning for Jamal. Noura, the same Noura that's "over (Jamal's) face". Jamal says he's scared of an all-female alliance, which Kellee has batted down. Jamal asks Noura is it ever crossed her mind. It has.

Karishma: DEAN - "You took three shots at me and you missed, and I'm nailing you on my first try. Stay dry, sweetheart."

Magic question from Probst: If anyone has a hidden Immunity Idol, now would be a good time to use it. Dean DOES... playing Kellee's Idol for himself. Then Jamal plays another Idol for... Noura! So much for being over his face.
- Karishma: (invalid)
- Jamal: (invalid)
- Kellee: (invalid) That's right. Gave him an idol, and then voted for him. SAVAGE!
- Jack: (invalid)
- Janet: (invalid)
- Dean: JACK
- Noura: JACK

By a vote of 2-0, Jack... the Tribe has spoken.

The episode ends with a touching tribute card for Rudy Boesch - "A Survivor Icon. An American Hero".
