  The show too tough to die is back for a new season on a new home. Welcome to a new evolution of BattleBots... FIGHT NIGHT!

And this season promises to be like no other - 55 robots, 4 fights each, fighting for a shot at the top 16 in the BattleBots World Championship.

... and just like that, IT'S ROBOT FIGHTING TIME!
Roboteer: Al Kindle
Edison, NJ
Bite Force
Roboteer: Paul Ventimiglia
Mountain View, CA

Each battle is a 3 minute affair against your opponent and the Battlebox. First to completely disassemble your opponent or render it motionless loses. It's Blacksmith's forks and hammer vs. Bite Force's spinning wheel. If you remember, Bite Force is the 2016 champion.


Next up, the season's first robot rumble.

Mecha Rampage
Roboteer: C2 Robotics
Los Angeles
Roboteer: Hal Rucker
Hillsborough, CA
Free Shipping
Roboteer: Gary Gin

Duck! is a box. Free Shipping is a lifter. Mecha Rampage. The rules are the same, but there are three bots. And the outcome will be on the record.


Roboteer: Jerry Clarkin
Malvern, PA
Roboteer: Jonathan Schultz/Team HUGE
Windsor, CT

HUGE is a wheel robot with his wheel weapon in the middle of its box. Subzero has a giant wedge.


Roboteer: Mike Jeffries/Chaos Corps 
Norcross, GA
Roboteer: Donald Hutson
San Diego

Bombshell's disk vs. Lockjaw with a new pair of lifting fork AND two vertical disks.


Now today's MAIN EVENT

Roboteer: Ray Billings 
Folsom, CA
Roboteer: Marco Antonio Meggiolaro
Rio de Janeiro

A rematch from the season finale from two years ago. Ray's spinning arm vs. Minotaur's grinder. And Tombstone takes a bit of the floor with him!

WINNER BY KO: Tombstone

And the games have only just begun.

Host: Neil Patrick Harris
Official WebsiteFacebookFacebook
bird, new, square, twitter iconInstagramHulu
  In two hours, we'll have the final three in the Genius Junior championship. But first, who gets to join The Dork Side and Geeks on Fleek in the finale?

Apoorva (12; San Jose)
Sebastian (12; New Hyde Park, NY)
Treasure (9; Jupiter, FL)


Vivek (11; Bloomington, IN)
Summer (10; Longbranch, NJ)
Anna (10; Mayodan, NC)


HUMAN GPS: Today, you'll have to remember every detail of an old blueprint of the RMS Titanic from 1912, the largest ship of her day.
- 27 Yards: 9
- The Fast & the Curious: 8

NUMBER CRUNCHER: Neil gives them an equation whose answer is the first number in the next one. In addition, one team can nominate a Super Brain to answer the question. They must calculate each equation - which will be longer than the last - within 90 seconds.
- Fast & the Curious call on their Superbrain early, with Apoorva scoring... 7.
- 27 Yards: 5
The Fast & The Curious squeak into the lead, 15 to 14.

TALKING DICTIONARY: The teams will still have to spell words backwards, but first they'll have to identify them without their vowels.
- 27 Yards use their Superbrain, Vivek. He gets... 10.
- The Fast & the Curious: 11
The Fast & the Curious pad their lead, 26 to 24.

MEMORY MASTER: For this round, each team was given TWO shuffled decks of cards. Each card correctly memorized is worth 1 point. The teams will only have 60 seconds. The team at the end of this round wins and goes on to the Cortex. BUT they can choose the order in which they play. Also, there is no passing in this round.
- 27 Yards goes first, getting... 56 for a total of 80.
- The Fast & the Curious need 55 or better. They get... 61 to win, 87 to 80!

- The Dork Side goes first, getting.... 63 in 60 seconds for a total of 83.

THE CORTEX: The ultimate intellectual relay - Genius #1 must answer three questions worth $3000, Genius #2 must answer four for $4000, Genius #3 must answer five for $5000. Answer all 12, and the money doubles to $100,000. They have 2 minutes to finish.
- LEVEL 1: Treasure - PERFECT SWEEP for $9000
- LEVEL 2: Sebastian - PERFECT SWEEP for $16,000
- LEVEL 3: Apoorva - two out of 5 for $10,000, giving them a total of $135,000, which will be theirs IF they become Genius Junior Champions. Remember, this includes the $100,000 they got for clearing the Cortex the first time.

But if they want the money, they'll have to win one more game.

In the nightcap...

Ashley (10; Orlando)
Rodrigo (10, Miami)
Shivani (11, Paramus, NJ)

Michi (10; San Diego)
Jackson (11; Reidsville, NC)
Ugochi (10; Powder Springs, GA)

Apoorva (12; San Jose)
Sebastian (12; New Hyde Park, NY)
Treasure (9; Jupiter, FL)


HUMAN GPS: This time out, the kids had to study a map of all the constellations in the sky. Every question is still worth a point, but the team with the lowest score will be eliminated.
- Geeks on Fleek: 4
- The Dork Side: 2
- The Fast & the Curious: 6
ELIMINATED: The Dork Side. But they're not going home empty-handed. Because they reached the final, they win a vacation at Universal Orlando!

The next two rounds are very important and very challenging. Every point will be an extra second inside the Cortex for each team, and that's important because the team who gets the furthest along in the Cortex, or the team who finishes the Cortex in the fastest time wins.

EXTREME NUMBER CRUNCHER: This time, the equations will include both powers and roots.  The Superbrain is still available to you should you need it. 
- The Fast & the Curious call on their Superbrain early, with Apoorva scoring... 6.
- Geeks on Fleek: 4.

TALKING DICTIONARY: For the final round, you'll still have to spell words backwards, but some words will have to be spelled by consonant or vowel ONLY.
- Geeks on Fleek use their Superbrain Michi, who gets... 10
- The Fast & the Curious: 9
The Fast & the Curious leads, 15 to 14

THE CORTEX: Both teams will enter the Cortex, where the money is doubled. Clear it, and it's another $200,000 into your prize fund. Clear it faster, and you win the prize fund.

Because they are behind, Geeks on Fleek will go first. They have 2:14 to complete the Cortex.
- LEVEL 1: Ugochi - PERFECT SWEEP for $18,000
- LEVEL 2: Michi - PERFECT SWEEP for $32,000
- LEVEL 3: Jackson - two out of 5 for $20,000, bringing their total prize fun to $127,000.

The Fast & the Curious need to pass Level 3 Q2 in order to win.
- LEVEL 1: Sebastian - PERFECT SWEEP for $18,000
- LEVEL 2: Apoorva - PERFECT SWEEP for $32,000
- LEVEL 3: Treasure - .... completely chokes.

Congratulations to GEEKS ON FLEEK for being this season's Genius Junior Champions! They'll split $127,000. Meanwhile, The Fast & the Curious will not go away empty handed, as they'll each take a vacation to Washington, DC!

It's the final episode before final week, and for the final five, the last chance to make a case for said finale. Live voting is hot as we whittle the field from five to three.

Tonight, each singer will go twice - once will feature a song from this week's guest mentor, American Idol 2005 Carrie Underwood, and again with a song dedicated to their mom. The top three vote getters at the end of the show will move to the finale.

First, we have a group performance with Carrie singing "See You Again" with the top 5.

- Michael J. Woodard: "Flat on the Floor". Lionel said that he started on a grand scale. Katy thought it was "exponentiall special". Luke liked his lyric delivery.
- Gabby Barrett: "Last Name". Katy thought she needs to separate herself from the rest of the industry. Luke thought she was a Carrie Underwood clone. Lionel thought it was "fabulous".
- Cade Foehner: "Undo It". Luke thought he nailed it. Lionel called it "authentic". Katy thought he should focus on subtlety.
- Caleb Lee Hutchinson: "So Small". Lionel thought it was "as real as they come". Katy agreed, but said others are physically outperforming him.
- Maddie Poppe: "I Told You So". Katy wants to hear Maddie's record. Luke said she's a storyteller. Lionel echoed Carrie, telling her not to "overthink" anything.

Halftime break! Here's Carrie with her new single, "Cry Pretty".

- Gabby: "I Have Nothing" by Whitney Houston. Lionel said she was daring. Katy was blown away to the point where "the glue came loose on (her) wig." TMI, Katy.
- Cade: "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Luke thought he executed perfectly the right song at the right time.
- Michael: "Still I Rise" by Yolanda Adams. Katy was sobbing throughout the performance.
- Caleb: "Stars in Alabama" by Jamey Johnson. Katy wants a beer with him.
- Maddie: "God Only Knows" by the Beach Boys. Lionel wants America to vote for her. Katy called her taste "impeccable".

So who's singing for a contract next week? Serious lights... Serious music...

ADVANCING TO THE FINALE (in no particular order):
- Caleb Lee Hutchinson
- Gabby Barrett
- Maddie Poppe

They had the chops... they had the fans... but Michael J. Woodard and Cade Foehner did not have the votes.

Who'll be the next American Idol? Stay tuned...

She ends up with $12,000 to $18,200 for Jake. Steve is on $10,600.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "US Political History": President Madison is credited with the 1st of these 2-word actions; he didn't sign an 1812 bill after Congress had adjourned. Correct response: what is a pocket veto?

Steve is right to go to $16,600. Ranjani went for it and missed. Jake... held back a bit. And that makes week 2 look mighty interesting.

If the wheels are rollin', don't come a-trollin', Devil!  Time for "The Joker's Wild"!

And, this week, two of Snoop's celebrity questioners stop by to play for charity!

Aubrey Plaza
playing for
Wiz Khalifa
playing for

WHERE MY LETTERS AT? - Kevin Smith plays a Snoopified "Wheel of Fortune" game
HAIR WE GO, YO! - Is what Snoop's sayin' a rapper or a hair product brand?
GET YO 80s ON - Snoop and Adam Devine sing songs from the decadent decade
SOLE TRAIN - Co-producer Michael Strahan dance  Yeah, with fish

In this round, two spins apiece.  Single categories get a $100 question, pairs get $200 and triples get $300.  Spinning three Jokers gets a question on anything for $500.  Otherwise, Jokers are wild and can be used on any category.

AUBREY: Sole-Sole-Letters ("Sole" for $200)
Q: Mike is jammin' with a rather fat (not phat) fish.  Is it a anglerfish, dragonfish or jawfish?
A: Anglerfish (Aubrey guesses it right!)

WIZ: JOKER-Letters-Hair ("Hair" for $200)
Q: Is "Nice & Smooth" a rap group or a hair product?
A: Rap group (Right!)

AUBREY: Sole-Sole-JOKER ("Sole" for $300...and Aubrey AIN'T happy!)
Q: Now Mike's got a long, sharp-scaley fishy.  Is it cod, tuna or flounder?
A: Tuna (Right guess agin!)

WIZ: 80s-Letters-Hair ("80s" for $100)
Q: Adam and Snoop since the chorus to "Hungry Like the Wolf".  Is it by Duran Duran, Wham! or Tears for Fears?
A: Duran Duran (Right!)


WU WHO? - ????
DEACON DOGG - Snoop takes us to "church"!
EL PASION DE SNOOP - A Mexican soap with Snoop, Cheech & Chong
MIND MELD - Essentially, "Super Match" with Snoop

Four yanks at the wheel this round and, dollar values are doubled for the first half.  A possible $50,000 awaits the leader's charity at the end.

WIZ: JOKER-Pasion-Deacon ("Pasion" for $400)
Q: "Jugo de naranja!", "Huevos!", "Tostada Francesa!"  Are they talking about breakfast, lunch or dinner?
A: Breakfast [it's "orange juice", "eggs" and "French toast" in Spanish] (Wrong!)

AUBREY: Compton-Pasion-JOKER ("Pasion" for $400)
Q: "Grandes Ligas!", "Zona de strike!", "Rojas de Cincinnati!"  What sport is that?: Football, baseball or basketball?
A: Baseball ["Major Leagues", "strike zone" and "Cincinnati Reds"] (Right!)

WIZ: JOKER-JOKER-JOKER!! (for $1000)
Q: Ahmir Thompson is the given name of what popular musician: Swizz Beatz, Timberland or Questlove?
A: Questlove (RIGHT!)

AUBREY: Mind-Mind-Wu Who? ("Mild" for $400)
Q: "ICE ____" (Aubrey says "cube")
A: "-berg" (Wrong!)

Fret not, Aubrey.  The money is TRIPLED from the first round for the last two Qs, meaning three Jokers are $1500!  ALSO, you can "SLANG THAT THANG" to your opponent if you're clueless and, if they miss it, you get the money!  But, if they get it RIGHT, they STEAL the dough from ya!

AUBREY: Mind-JOKER-Compton ("Mind" for $600)
Q: "HOLY ____" (Aubrey says "Spirit")
A: "Smoke" (Wrong!  They both admit to WANTING to say "s#|+", though)

WIZ: JOKER-Deacon-JOKER ("Deacon" for $600)
Q: "This double threat is among us!  An actor and a singer!  He won a Golden Globe for 'Atlanta'!"  Who be dat, brotha?
A: Donald Glover (Right!)

Aubrey needs wheels fulla JOKERs and a right answer to stay in the game.


But the Hispanic Federation will get $10,000 in Aubrey's name to help rebuild Puerto Rico.

Now Wiz tries to "Beat the Devil".  Money amounts go from $300 to $1500.  JOKERs are $2000 apiece.  See the Devil and he takes it all.  Get $10,000 or more - OR get three JOKERS - and win $50,000 for!

With hopes of collect cash for single dads and basic necessities for impoverish kids, Wiz spins those wheels...and gets to STOP the wheels with a button...

$ 420 | $ 420 | $1000 = $1840

Wiz hit he and Snoop's favorite number back-to-back...but the money's less than what Wiz got in the main game it again...

$ 420 | $ 750 | $1500 = $4510

Still on that "420" kick...but still ain't enough for the kids and dads, yo.  Wiz wheels again...

$ 300 | $1500 | JOKER = $8310

Now Snoop dips into his "magic box" and EMPTIES it out to the tune of $12,000!  Snoop'll add that to Wiz's stash for a total of $20,310 for IF he steps away now!  Wiz ponders for a while...and, without a word,...SPINS THOSE WHEELS!

$ 420 | $1000 | $ 420 = $10,150 = $50,000!!!

You get diapers!  YOU get car seats!  YOU get clothing!  And bunch of other kids will get help thanks to the $52,220 won by Wiz Khalifa!  See ya next time on "The Joker's Wild"!

Dan Dollbaum (Elmwood Park, NJ) uses all 3 lifelines (audience, then 50:50, then his nephew, JT) to secure $5,000.  After that is this...

As Rihanna could probably tell you, Bridgetown is the capital of what Caribbean nation?
A: The Bahamas
B: Barbados
C: Haiti
D: Dominican Republic

Dan says it's not C, and he doesn't think it's D, either.  He goes with A... but it's B!  As a result, he leaves with $5,000.

Megan Iurilli (Trenton, NJ) sweeps the first 5, then sees this...

In addition to having failed to win the White House, the two most recent losing Democratic presidential candidates have which of these things in common?
A: They won the popular vote
B: Their spouses also ran for president
C: They served in the Vietnam War
D: They once served as Secretary of State

Megan says A... but it's D!  As a result, she leaves with $5,000.

Bailey Vogt (Chandler, AZ) starts his run with...

What artist titled his first four solo albums, in order: Peter Gabriel, Peter Gabriel, Peter Gabriel and Peter Gabriel?
A: Paul McCartney
B: Kanye West
C: Ed Sheeran
D: Peter Gabriel

When one's run starts with a question so blatantly easy...  Anyway, of course Bailey says D, and of course he's right!  Afterwards, he gets to this...

What did Charles Dickens call a system where "a person who can't pay gets another person who can't pay to guarantee that he can pay"?
A: Taxes
B: Credit
C: Interest
D: The lottery

Bailey thinks that it is A... but it's B!  That sends him home with nothing.

Still a bit of time left, so Zuri Brooks tries for $1,000 with this...

Mathematician Blaise Pascal is widely credited with creating an early version of what casino game while he was attempting to design a perpetual motion machine?
A: Craps
B: Roulette
C: Baccarat
D: Keno

Zuri immediately locks in B... and she's right for $1,000!
