First $1000 TOSSUP is Show Biz. Lacey says LIGHTS CAMERA ACTION for $1000.

Next, a $2000 TOSSUP, which a Phrase. Lacey thinks IT'S A PIECE OF CAKE for $2000. She gets control of the Wheel first...

$5000 BONUS: the first round... 80s Song Lyrics. Lacey starts... by hitting Bankrupt. Melissa gets $1950 but misses a T. Titus gets $900, but misses a K. Lacey misses an S straight off.

- Tituss gets off the schneid with FOLLOWING THE RULES for $5000
- ... and REWRITING THE RULES for $5000 more...

So far, Melissa has $5000, Tituss has $10,000, and Lacey is in front with $18,500

$20,000 BONUS is an Event. Melissa hits the Million Dollar Wedge and runs out, solving A MAJOR LOSING STREAK, something Melissa is NOT on as she wins $27,800 WITH the Million Dollar Wedge! Tituss and Lacey have $10,000 and $18,500 respectively... SO FAR.

MILLION DOLLAR BONUS WHEEL: Melissa gets the choice of Phrase, Thing, and Food & Drink. She picks FOOD & DRINK. Spinning out the G, and with the standard six plus GMW A...

She goes for BRAN MUFFINS... and HERE COMES THE CONFETTI! MELISSA JOAN HART SPINS OUT $1 MILLION! That brings her total tonight to $1,027,800! AND we have a whole other game to play!

So how do you top that? We'll see as we start with...

... a $1000 TOSSUP of Phrase. Lacey is MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED for $1000.

$2000 TOSSUP is Show Biz. Lacey blanks, and Melissa says WILL YOU READ MY SCREENPLAY for $2000 and control of the... thing.

$20,000 BONUS ROUND is Things. Melissa misses a Y. Tituss misses a T. Lacey misses an M. And we're missing the rest of the round, because time is running short. We get a Final Spin of... $1650. Lacey solves ONE BILLION DOLLARS to win... $41,400 for this game! Not quite a billion there. Anyway, Melissa's not gonna shirk this night off. She wins $1,039,800 for Youth Villages. Tituss is giving Broadway Dreams the house minimum of $30,000.

So far... SO FAR... Wheel's given away $1,111,200. Lacey's going to hope for more as we get into...

BONUS WHEEL: She picks from Person, Phrase, and Living Thing. She goes with PERSON, the standard six, the * wedge, and AFMD...

A / _ E R _
L _ _ _ _ / _ _ _

... and not very lucky picks for A VERY LUCKY GUY, meaning that Lacey misses out on $75,000. But all in all, not a bad night for our three players, and especially not for Melissa!

Netflix: streaming Wednesdays
Host: Justin Willman with Joanne Chang, Dr. Hakeem Oluseyi & Andrew Smyth
Official WebsiteFacebook

We've seen nine of the greatest bakers in America team up with nine of the brightest engineers to create the impossible, amazing AND edible machines. Now we're down to the final two - Cindy & Taylor and Rodolfo & Sara. One of these teams will walk out of the hangar kitchen with $100,000 of sweet Netflix money and the title of America's Best Bakineers.

MISSION #8: BRIDGES - TIME LIMIT: 18 hours over 2 days
- 4 foot bridge across water
- Moving bridge functino
- 2 foot cake land masses
- Must include cake, confection, and candy
- THREE stress tests
1) Boat traveling under bridge
2) Car driving over bridge
3) Weight stacked on bridge

As a reminder, the bridge (or at least the driveable roadway) must be 100% edible and fit a platform 16x9 feet to span an area of 4 feet of water. You can use non-edibles as a means of support but not for the bridge itself.

STRESS TEST #8: There are three parts:
- A boat must be able to fit underneath the bridge once opened
- A remote controlled car weighted to 50lbs must be driven on top of the bridge.
- The bridge must withstand the weight of up to 150lbs.

Your cakes, confections, and candies will be judged on taste, presentation & creativity. Your bridges will be judged on utility, creativity, and originality.

- Cindy & Taylor: Yin & Yang Bridge (Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake, Peanut Brittle, Cheesecake Swirl Brownies with Walnuts) - PASSES test #1 & test #3, FAILS test #2
- Rodolfo & Sara: Memory Lane (Lemon Blueberry Cake with Cupuaçu Mousse & Blackberries, Pretzel Cheesecake Cactus, Pistachio Truffle Topiary) - PASSES all tests

So who crosses the bridge to victory? The winners..

... of Baking Impossible season 1...





Episodes of "Baking Impossible" drop every Wednesday on Netflix.

  How it started: Jonathan Fisher beats Matt Amodio.

How it's going: Jonathan Fisher is playing for over $100,000.

Jonathan Fisher
orig. Coral Gables, FL


Nima Aghili
Overland Park, KS
lawyer & legal recruiter

Connie Smith
Oviedo, FL
mechanical engineer

JEOPARDY! ROUND: "Eye", State Your Name, Do Solemnly Swear, Graze Anatomy, Finish the Line, Now Read This!

Jonathan starts with $600 Now Read This!, where Connie finds the Daily Double under $400. At -$200, she wagers the max on this...
- NOW READ THIS! for $1000: Howard Roark is to "The Fountainhead" as John Galt is to this 1,100-page tome.
"What is Atlas Shrugged?" ... for $800! She ends up with $5200 to $4000 for Jonathan. Nima, on $1400, gets the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Movie Titles Through Pictures, Historic Potpourri, Libraries, The Impassable Dream, High/Low, Diëresis & Ümlaut Wörds

... with $800 Movie Titles Through Pictures. Jonathan has $8800 when he finds the first Daily Double under $2000 Historic Potpourri. He bets $2500 on this:
- HISTORIC POTPOURRI for $2500: Also known as Deutscher Orden, this order of knights went to the Holy Land during the Third Crusade.
"Who are the Teutonic Knights?" FOR $11,300! He's up to $17,300 when he finds the other under $1200 High/Low. He makes it another $2000 to go on this:
- HIGH/LOW for $2000: Mount Whitney is the highest point in what's known as the "High" this.
"What is the High Sierras?" GOOD for $21,300! He ends up with $24,100. With Nima on $7800 to $11,200 for Connie, it's Jonathan's game to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Literature for Children": These stories got their collective title because little Josephine Kipling insisted they be told exactly the same way each time. Correct response: what are Just So Stories?

No one got it, but Jonathan leaves enough to win $23,700, pushing him over the $100,000 mark with $117,700 for five!

THE MOAT: Pele is the Hawaiian goddess of fire and volcano. You will honor her by crossing the moat and clipping six islands on the other side of a volcano. Once you've both crossed, dig in the soil to find and read a poem that honors Pele. The first three teams to hit the gong will move on to the next round.
- ELIMINATED: Red Jaguars

THE STEPS OF KNOWLEDGE: Now you will learn more about the legend of the Fiery Rock of Pele. Pay close attention, because your knowledge of the legend can move you one step closer to the Temple. If you think you know the answer to Olmec's questions, hit your floor marking. If you are correct, you move a step down. The first two teams to descend three steps will move on to the Temple Games.
- WINNERS: Blue Barracudas, Green Monkeys. The Silver Snakes leave with a Legends swag pack. And all teams get to keep their sweet t-shirts.

TEMPLE GAMES: Because they won the Steps of Knowledge first, the Blue Barracudas have control and elected to go second.
- RACE TO THE VOLCANO: One of you will clumb up the volcano and grab rocks to send lava flowing to your partner, who'll then use the lava to knock over six islands. Once you have done that, race up the volcano again and encase Hopoe by pouring lava on her. The fastest time wins one Pendant of Life.
- SPIRIT TRACKS: Describing the seven spirit symbols to your partner, you have to decode the symbol and assemble all four pieces of the spirit. First team to do that wins a Pendant.
WINNER: BLUE BARRACUDAS (win, 2-0). The Green Monkeys leave with $1000 and a pair of Razor scooters.

TEMPLE RUN: The Fiery Rock of Pele is located in the Room of the Lost Treasure. To get there you could choose to go...
- THE CRYSTAL CENOTE: Climb the stairs to one of three doors, which could lead you to...
- THE CRYPT OF THE HEARTLESS: Search through the corpses for a beating heart, which could take you to..
- THE PIT OF DESPAIR: Climb the walls using the holes or the mounted bones to take you to...
- THE SPIDER'S LAIR: Crawl through the web to get to...
- THE ROYAL RAGE ROOM: Smash the clay pots to find three jade keys that will open a door to...
- THE ROOM OF THE BELOVED: Using a slide puzzle, reunite a skull with its skeleton to go to...
- THE SHRINE OF THE SILVER MONKEY: Assemble the statue (BASE, BODY, HEAD) to open a door to...
- THE STEAMY HOLLOWS: Memorize the color pattern of the geysers to unlock...
- THE QUEEN'S ARMORY: Dress the queen statue with armor to open the Ladder of Death to...
- THE ROOM OF THE LOST TREASURE: Hidden in the debris is the Fiery Rock of Pele.

On go, Fiona will have 4 minutes to enter the temple and make her way to the Room of the Lost Treasure. Be careful, because there are many locked doors and dead ends. There are also Temple Guards assigned to guard three specific rooms. If you find one, you can give them a Pendant of Life to continue, but if you are caught without a pendant, you will be taken out of the Temple, and it will be Danny's turn to enter and try his luck. Once you reach the Fiery Rock of Pele, all the doors will instantly unlock, and the Temple Guards will vanish. Return to the Temple Gates with the Fiery Rock of Pele within 4 minutes, and you will be handsomely rewarded:
- Getting to the Temple Run: $2500
- Getting to the Fiery Rock of Pele: $10,000
- Getting to the Temple Gates with the rock: $25,000
As always... the choices are yours and yours alone.

- Temple Guard in Crypt of the Heartless (Pendant)
- Temple Guard in the Queen's Armory
- TIME OUT. They do get $2500 courtesy of our friends at Chime.
