Cash Cab Premiere

Discovery: Sunday 10p & 10:30p/9p & 9:30C
Host: Ben Bailey
Official WebsiteFacebookFacebook
  The Cab has moved to Sundays to run out the episodes.

First trip has four bartenders heading ot 116th & Frederick Douglass. After striking the very first question on states wtih more than half of all Fortune 500 companies due to their lax tax codes (Delaware), they need a Social Media Shoutout to get out of the $50 tier ... Though you might have to be "psychotic" to watch it again, what became the world's most-watched YouTube clip of all time in 2012 just five months after it was posted? Facebook says "Gangnam Style"... and that's right for $150. They hit strike 2 when they can't identify yuca as the root vegetable carved during Noche de Rabanos. They have $250 going into this question: "Where the Trek Begins" is the motto of Riverside, Iowa, a town that bills itself as the future birthplace of what fictional space explorer? They say "Buzz Lightyear"... but it was James T. Kirk. Time to beam out of here.

... and we beam in Matthew Perry from "The Odd Couple" to help married couple Christie & Paul get to the Flatiron Building. They sweep the $50s, but strike on two of the $100s: one where they can't name the cheese accepted as collateral by a bank in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy (Parmesano-Reggiano), and again when they can't name the jewelry given to World Series of Poker winners (bracelets). They need a Social Media Shoutout on the first question for $200... Giving new meaning to "body of Congress", Speaker of the House Paul Ryan credits his toned physique to what home exercise regimen? They get the answer P90X... and that's right for $600! And we're at a Red Light, so...

RED LIGHT CHALLENGE: Thanks to their super licensing deals, superheroes are super-valuable. Name six of the seven most valuable superheroes according to 247WallStreet. Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America are right for $850! The other one: the Hulk. They need a Street Shoutout to identify Mount Kilimanjaro for $1050, but have one question away from the goal... Also the name of an album by the band Wilco, what three words would air traffic controllers use to signal the letters YHF? They go with yankee, hotel, foxtrot... and they win $1250! Will they risk it on a Video Bonus? No.

On the nightcap (featuring Dave Foley), a group strikes out on a Street Shoutout - contrary to popular belief, most of the Las Vegas Strip lies not in Las Vegas proper but rather in what idyllic-sounding town? They said "Old Town", but it was Paradise.

Married couple Josh & Danielle get help from Dave Foley to win $1500. But they won't risk it on the Video.

Fox: Friday 8p/7c
Host: Gordon Ramsay with Marino Monferrato, James "Jocky" Petrie & Christina Wilson
Official WebsiteFacebookFacebook
bird, new, square, twitter iconInstagramInstagram
  Last week, the Red Team fell apart at the pass, and Ramsay took a pass on Manda, leaving us with the final 10.

Meanwhile, Elise and Michelle ... are still going at it.

CHALLENGE #8: Fishing for Ingredients. The chefs would have to "angle" their way to a coherent fish dish by getting whatever ingredients they could, then prepping and plating for 30 minutes. The fish available: Dover sole, red snapper, grouper, arctic char, and cod. Judging: celebrity chef Michael Cimarusti.
- WINNERS: Blue Team, 4-2.

REWARD: The Blues head to Las Vegas to stay at where one of them hope to work: Caesars Palace (the location of Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen Las Vegas). Christina also took them to the world's tallest Ferris wheel.
PUNISHMENT: It's delivery day. Again. The Reds have to prep, scale, and fillet several hundred pounds of fish.

In the middleof the day, Jocky serves a heaping helping of fish smoothie. Barbie tried to get away with throwing hers out... but was caught. So now EVERYONE had to drink theirs until they finish. This results in three reversals of fortune. And speaking of...

DINNER SERVICE #7: With an Asian fusion menu, VIPs include "iZombie" actor Aleks Paunovic and E-40. On the chef's tables: for the red kitchen, "Dancing with the Stars" veteran Cheryl Burke, and for the blues, "Scandal's" Dan Bucatinsky.
- Barbie & Robyn spend way too much time with the tables and not enough time on their stations.
- Elise & Barbie fight over control of Christina's pass. Something you just don't do.
- After a raw chicken gets to the pass, the Red Team is hauled into the pantry for a dressing-down.
- Barbie insisted on a properly cooked duck when Cheryl got a raw one.
- Milly had a raw steak.
- Van had an overdone salmon
- Ramsay... just had it with both teams. Though service was completed, NEITHER team won.

NOMINATED: Nick nominates Robyn and Milly, while Ramsay adds Van's name into the mix.
ELIMINATED: Van. "Van's always had one of the loudest voices here. Tonight, not only did he lose his voice but also his dream of becoming my next head chef."

But we're not done yet.

ALSO NOMINATED: Dana nominates Elise and Barbie for their altercation at the pass.
ALSO ELIMINATED: .... No one. Ramsay gives both a warning to get their collective (^_^) together. Or else.

  Kyle's going for the sweep of the week against...
Kyle Becker

research scientist
Laura Miller
Arlington, VA
Ben Raphel
healthcare data analyst

JEOPARDY! ROUND: The Food Chain, Stately Bodies of Water, Hammer, From B to C, I Sing the Body, Electric

Kyle starts with $200 Stately Bodies of Water, where Ben finds the Daily Double one clue below it under $400. He makes it the max to go on this: the bay of Green Bay lies at its northwestern corner. "What is Lake Michigan?" That's right for $1200! He ends up with $4200, a tie with Kyle. Laura leads with $5200.

Closest to Alex starts first in Double Jeopardy!. That's you, Kyle...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Asian Culture, 14-Letter Words, State Department History, Writers & Writing, Fossil Fuels, Stage Name's the Same.

... with $400 State Department History. Ben finds the first Daily Double under $1200 Asian Culture. He bets $3000 on this: depicting stories of daily life & from folklore, water puppetry in this country began in the Red River delta in the 11th century. "What is Vietnam?" Right on for $16,000! Kyle gets the other under the last clue of the round, $2000 14-Letter Words. He has $10,600 to Ben's $15,600. He bets... just the level on this: the Great Depression gave rise to this, the study of income & output on a national scale. "What is macroeconomics?" Should've bet more. He's up to $12,600 to $15,600 for Ben. Laura has $9600.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Primetime TV Actresses": on the beat since 1999, she plays the longest-running female character currently on TV in a primetime non-animated series. Correct response: who is Mariska Hargitay (Det. Olivia Benson, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit")

Kyle misses, but Ben doesn't. He wins $25,201. Kyle leaves with $64,802 and the hope that his score will hold on the leaderboard.

  On today's show, celebrity chef Curtis Stone (Los Angeles, CA) plays on behalf of Chrysalis.

He asks the audience at $5,000, then sees this soon after...

Which of these adjectives has NOT appeared in the title of a movie starring Emma Stone?
A: Amazing
B: Easy
C: Crazy
D: Grand

Curtis decides to bring in his brother, Luke, who isn't sure about this, but is leaning towards C. Curtis then uses the 50:50, and that leaves A and D. Curtis wants to say A, but Luke is now leaning towards D. Curtis still goes with A... but it's D! Since it's for charity, Chrysalis still gets $10,000!

Evan Bosaczyk (Philadelphia, PA)

Which of these American brands is actually spelled correctly, as it uses the British spelling of a word in its name?
A: Chilli's
B: Fibre One
C: Goodyear Tyres
D: Under Armour

Evan decides to say C... but it's D! That sends him home with nothing.
