We have had four shows in Big Money Week, and of those four shows, the big money was hit ONCE. Certainly we can do something about that today with Travon Lewis (who is playing in a wheelchair), Mark Contreras, Dionne Long & Virginia Salzman kicking off the harrowing conclusion of TPIR's Big Money Week with a trip to San Diego (3n @ the Bahia Resort Hotel). The $2010 trip goes to Mark, who gets to play the Grand Game for... ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS! Of course we have to set it back to $10, though. Target: $4.50. Chef Boyardee ravioli... $1.49 for $100. Mrs. Freshley's cupcakes... $2.99 for $1000. Mountain High yogurt... $3.69 for $10,000! Now will he risk it on an 8-pack of Mott's apple juice? He will.... $3.99! BINGO BANGO, PAY! THAT MAN! HIS MONEY!

How do you follow that up, Travon? A $1570 set of sunglasses? Nice start. A Ford Focus SE? Nice finish! It's Range Game. He has Drew stop the rangefinder at $19,410, since he is unable to reach the button himself. The price... $19,450! Nicely done!

Yes, Virginia, there is a $2639 dishwasher with dinnerware! Now try for a PC, a bike, a sauna, and a four-top of Alexander McQueen shoes. Just Take Two that add to $8155. She takes the computer and the sauna. The computer... $2639. The sauna... $3695. Total: $6334. She takes the sauna... and adds the shoes. The price... $4460 for a total of... $8155!

Three games, three wins, only one spot in the Showcase... that goes to Mark! Meanwhile, Dionne completes the first-four sweep with a $2998 chair & ottoman. She will haul that away (C-Note: though I can't imagine how) in a Kia Soul if she wins Money Game.

17  43  89
16  32  74
62  95  18

Middle number: 2. 17... Money. 18... Money. 16... FRONT! 95.. money. 89... 219 money. The car was $16,232.

Theresa Holmes gets elementary, Watson, with a $1743 speaker system with iPods. Next up, a home gym and ultra HDTV if she can correctly place the 1 Right Price of $3495. She goes with the home gym... RIGHT!

Aaron Kenny hopes not to kill our buzz after winning a $1995 diamond ring. If he doesn't, we'll send him to Thailand (6n @ BYD Lofts Patong Beach in Phuket). He only needs to conquer Bonus Game. He gets the $65 multi-chopper, the $10 hair remover, the $42 toaster, and the $125 air purifier to win the Bonus! For the record, he had it with the chopper.

Dionne takes on Mark in the David-meet-Goliath Showcase. We're up all night to get lucky with a trip to Las Vegas (5n from, a roulette table, a foosball table, and a trip to Ireland (6n @ Cork). Top winner Mark passes, and Dionne bids $24,000. Mark gets to cook with gas on an outdoor barbecue island, a patio set, and a Honda Civic Natural Gas. He bids $23,000. Actual price... $41,535, a difference of $18,535. Actual price of Dionne's Showcase... $21,919! And Mark is your big winner of the WEEK with $143,545!

So to review, and we thank the folks over at for the data, we had over $2.3 millon in cash and prizes this week. Of it, we gave away over $600,000. We'll take it.

  Stephen Clarke (Havertown, PA) goes into this one with $29,600 through 7 questions. He's out of lifelines, though.

He gets to this with $42,600 banked...

[Q10] ($25,000)
Which of the following statements about European city dwellers is NOT true?
A: People from Glasgow are Glaswegians
B: People from Madrid are Madrilenians
C: People from Birmingham are Brummies
D: People from Naples are Napelenos

Stephen feels that he'd just be guessing at this one, so he walks with $21,300! As for the answer, it's D.

Ken Jennings (Seattle, WA) - Writer
74 straight wins on Jeopardy! Over $2.5 million accumulated during those wins. Need I say more?
(+1): ???

8 questions in, and he has $58,100 in his bank when the horn goes off. Ken returns on Monday for more!

  Kym Whitley & Josh Wolf are helping Theo and a few unsuspecting marks deal with it for $500.

Stakeout: Kym gets to watch John mess with his friend Justin.

- Level 1: Start interrogating the server about the woman behind her for $250... PASS
- Level 2: Tell Justin that the woman behind him looks suspicious... and act on it for $500.... PASS
- Level 3: Take a picture with the woman for $750... PASS
- Level 4: Collect evidence while Kym sends the woman to the ladies' for $1000... PASS.... and it looks like Justin is the one who can't deal with it.
- Level 5: Get Justin to handcuff himself to the woman for $2500... AND he runs out of time. At least he has $2500. And Justin gets a hug from Kym.

Blowout: Josh is getting pizza with Rod to clown on his sister.

- Level 1: "Did mom ever tell you the big family secret?" for $250... PASS
- Level 2: Shout at the family of birthday actors for $500... PASS
- Level 3: Blow out the birthday candles... with a fire extinguisher for $750... PASS... Then the sister leaves and the game ends, forcing an intervention from executive producer Howie Mandel. But a $1500 intervention.

  Returning champions the Hinesley ladies now get to play against the Noris family, with N'aithan attempting to compete in the next Olympics in the men's 110m hurdles.
Crystal, N'aithan, Jay, Eric, Rell
Kathy, Taylor, Natalie, Briana, Felicia
Sharpsburg, GA

SINGLE: 100 men: something about a woman that makes you decide she's a keeper.
1. Personality/Funny 25  5. Doesn't talk/Mute 6
2. Pretty face/Smile 21  6. Sizzles in sack 6
3. Gourmet cook 14       7. Got back/rack 5
4. Moral/Honest 8

SINGLE: right now, something your body is telling you to do.
1. Eat/more cookies 38   5. Exercise, wuss! 4
2. Sleep/Rest 29         6. Go on a diet, fatty! 3
3. Drink/a 40 7
4. Pee/Pinch a loaf 7

DOUBLE: an animal whose tongue reminds you of Miley Cyrus.
1. Giraffe 24            5. Dog 9
2. Lizard/Iguana 11      6. Camel 6
3. Snake/Python 10
4. Anteater 9

TRIPLE: when you were a kid, someone who can see right through your lies.
1. Mom/Dad 85
2. Granny/Gramps 9
3. Teacher 2
4. Friend 2

After the Noris' took all the points on the first three surveys, the Hinesleys would sweep the last survey to send the game to sudden death.

Sudden death question: What might you talking about if you use the word boxers? Noris got in first and won it with Underwear/Shorts (67).

N'aithan & Rell will play Fast Money. N'aithan stumbled one hurdle, but still made good leaps in his answers to get 133. Rell was lucky to get all his answers in time, and he got it done in three to get them their $20,000.

Fast Money #1 answers
- Something you do while you're driving that makes your passengers nervous: Speeding
- The age when a kid is allowed to stay out past midnight: Age 18 (Rell)
- Something you must take care of if you want it to thrive: Flower/Plants/Lawn (N'aithan)
- A job in Vegas that makes really good tips: Casino dealer (Rell)
- To be alone in your house, where do you go?: Bedroom (N'aithan)

In the nightcap, returning champions the Felton family still looking for big money, hope this will be their day, as they play against the Armbruster family of all ladies.

Name something you'd have to get used to if you were reincarnated as a cow.
1. Chewing cud/grass 39
2. Udder/Get milked 39
3. Living outside/farm 3
4. Sleep standing up 3

The Armbrusters had to get #4 on the last survey to take the win, but being with bulls wasn't that last answer, so the Feltons get another win.

There's another switch, as Deondra & Christina will play Fast Money. Deondra was thrilled with her answers, as she got 170. Christina showed no pressure, but all her answers were single digits, and the last answer proved costly, had Christina thought of punk and not funk, they might have had it, but she was snowballed, only getting them another $950.

  The Game Plane has turned into a shuttle. We went from Honolulu to LA... then back... and now it's back to LA on Flight 1072.

DO YOU READ ME?: Tanner & Alexandra (newlyweds) play. Tanner's category: things found in a kitchen. He gets 7. Alexandra's category: what you'd find in Los Angeles. She gets... 4. No prize, but they do get $220.

Bumpy road.. TURBULENCE GAME! Sarah (student at Chapman University) plays LANDING LETTERS. Unscramble the letters to find words. Category: Cars. She gets Viper, Beetle, Mustang, and Corvette for $190. Will she risk it for double on a 9-letter word? She'll keep the cash. Had she gone for it... she would've gotten LAND ROVER after the buzzer. Good move!

THE PLANE TRUTH: Donald (Palm Springs) vs. David Garza (police officer Santa Maria, CA). Believe it... or not? Winner gets a GC to The other player gets a family four-pack to Ripley's Believe It Or Not!. And not only that, they're playing for a different side of the plane. David wins, 4-2, which means David gets free trips from, while Donald is going to Ripley's. The DEF side is going to win watches.

... and it's enough for him to get into the BIG DEAL for a trip to Glacier National Park in Canada.

DAVID (and his wife Jolene): 2-Q-J-2-4-8-7-6  (seven)
TANNER & ALEXANDRA: 2-K-3-K-9-8.... Q-10 (WIN!)

He can take Curtain 2 or the leftovers from the Previous two deals! That would mean $5,594 in cash and arcade! Fermin goes for Curtain 2 and wins a MONSTER VAN(ZONK)!

Next up is Dr. William. He is playing for a $14,800 Kia Rio LX Sedan by playing Movin On Up. He needs to get to the row of 6 to the row of 2 without hitting a zonk.

He moves up to the row of 5 and it's 4. 4 adds $700. He has $1,100. Will he move on up to the Row of 4? He picks 1 and it's $1,000. He has $2,100 and STOPS. For fun he would have picked 2 in the row of 3 and $2,000. But 1 would have zonked him out at the top!

Katrina(as Mario) and Linda the Caveman will be making deals for each other. Will Katrina give Linda a Diamond Dollar or the Red Box? She gives Linda cash instead of Diamond Earrings worth $3,480! She picks 4(out of 7) and Linda wins $2,800! Linda will give Katrina the Green Box and Katrina is going to the River Terrace Inn for 3N in Napa Valley worth $3,854! Individual decisions time. Who trades for Curtain 1 and who keeps? They both keep and would have won a REMOTE CONTROL COUCH(ZONK)!

James the Nerd has Curtain 2 which has 2 wheels. He passes on $200/wheel...$400/wheel for a Piaggio Fly 150 Scooter with Helmet worth $3,158! Next up is Uncle Sam as Herman.

If she wants to, she can give her prizes and try and beat Wayne. If she does, she has to assign two for her and one for Wayne. If she beats Wayne, she wins the Cube. If not, Allison goes home with nothing. Allison stops. She would have picked E with 6 and Wayne would have beat her with C and 7!

Last deal involves Veronica the shoe. She can pick between two LMAD Envelopes(Wayne's Western Wear Budget or Jonathan's Jammies Budget). Veronica picks Wayne and passes on $800 in Jonathan's envelope. Wayne's envelope has $1,600. Will she keep the cash or take Curtain 3? She takes the cash and passes on a suite of Electronics including 13" Samsung Laptop/22" All in One HP Computer/and Samsung Android Tablet worth $3,150!

Who trades for a shot at $23,752! It's Allison with her bedroom/cash! She picks 3. 1 was a suite of appliances with french door refrigerator, dishwasher, range, cookware and bakeware worth $5,746! 2 was a pair of bikes and 1 yr of coconut water worth $2,960!
