  Captain Pensyl is looking for some extra holiday cash against...
Cpt. Ryan Pensyl
orig. Shamokin, PA
Army officer
Emily Moody
Easton, MD
social worker
Michael Oliphant

Ryan starts with $200 World Leaders. Emily finds the Daily Double under $6000 Quotes from The Wizard of Oz. She maxes out on this: it answers the question posed by the Lion, "What makes a king out of a slave?" "What is courage?" Right for $1200! She ends up with $4400 to $5400 for Ryan. Michael's got $3400 and the board to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 State Mottoes, where Emily finds the first Daily Double under $2000. She doubles the level on this: its motto, "Equal Rights", reflects the fact that its women were given the right the vote in 1869. "What is... Massachusetts?" Wyoming drops her to $3600. Ryan finds the other under $800 Lowly History. He fronts $2500 for the lead on this: 1381's Peasants' Revolt stormed London & executed many bigwigs including Simon of Sudbury, this religious official. "Who is the Archbishop of Canterbury?" FOR THE LEAD, $8700! He ends up with $17,900 to $12,200 for Michael. Emily is on $7600.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Literary Travel": the romantic balcony seen here is one of the most popular tourist attractions in this Italian city. Correct response: what is Verona?

The men strike on this romantic tale, with Ryan taking another $24,401, giving him a two-day take of $32,000.

owner, Tschudin Chocolates & Confections
Meg Murray
Gaithersburg, MD
teaching assistant, L'Academie de Cuisine
Davie Olson
New York City
head candy maker, Papabubble NY

Today, the cooks are going to reinvent the timeless holiday snack, Hammond's Candy Canes!

ROUND 1: recreate an exact copy of the candy cane. Joining Marc on the panel: Hammond's president Andrew Schuman and CEO of the Hollywood Candy Girls Jackie Sorkin.

Roberto: 8-6-7 = 21
Meg: 6-5-7 = 18
Davie: 9-8-8 = 25... and that's a wrap for Meg. 

ROUND 2 (30 minutes to create an innovative dish using the candy canes): Not only will you be judged on taste and appearance, but also creativity. We are going to reset the scores, and the player with the higher score at the end of the round wins.

Roberto: Peppermint Lamb Chops & Scallops with Chocolate Couscous
Davie: Curried Peppermint Tofu with Coconut Rice & Chai Tea

The lamb chop & scallops were spot on. The couscous is "a little off" due to having too much peppermint. Davie was very creative. The winner... by a score of 24-23... is ROBERTO! He gets a year's supply of Hammond's Candy Canes!

  Christi Leman (Springville, UT) gets the show started with $12,500 through 4 questions. She's out of lifelines, though.

The $2,000 from the 5th brings that total up to $14,500 going into this...

What actor once received a text from his muscle-clad brother telling him to lose some weight, joking, "It's called Hunger Games, not Eating Games"?
A: Liam Hemsworth
B: Owen Wilson
C: Charlie Sheen
D: Casey Affleck

Christi knows that B has a famous brother, but she doesn't seem too sure about this one; she walks with $7,250. The answer is A.

Eric Berger (Houston, TX)
He has been standing in at plenty of weddings.
(+1): His girlfriend, Alicia

He jumps the 4th question, which had $7,000. He has $30,100 banked when he sees this...

According to the religion's teachings, the Book of Mormon was translated from golden tablets found in what state's town of Manchester?
A: Missouri
B: Indiana
C: New York
D: Nevada

Eric went to graduate school with some Mormon friends, and he has a feeling that he may know this, but he wants to hear from the audience first. A and C are tied at 28% each, with B at 26% and D at 18%. It turns out that he was thinking A or C. He brings in his Plus One; Alicia is also thinking A or C, but though a quick thought says C, she starts leaning towards A. After some more conversation between the two, Eric takes the risk, saying A... but it's C! That means he leaves with $1,000.

To end the week, Collin Parajean (Keller, TX) is picked from the audience to play for $1,000...

Russell Crowe has been quoted in the New York Post as saying that he'd move to LA only if which two places "were swallowed up by a huge tidal wave"?
A: Australia and New Zealand
B: England and Ireland
C: France and Italy
D: St. Barts and Bermuda

Having a feeling that Crowe is Australian, Collin says A... and he's right for $1,000!
