  Anne Forester (West Jordan, UT) goes into the show today with $11,500 through 4 questions. No lifelines left, though.

With $7,000 from the 5th, she is up to $18,500 going into this...

Believed to be the result of a galactic collision that turned it upside down, which of these planets is unusual in that it rotates clockwise?
A: Venus
B: Saturn
C: Jupiter
D: Mars

None of those are sticking out, so Anne decides to walk, taking home $9,250. The answer is A.

Sam Pollard (Houston, TX)
A bully that picked on him in school also auditioned for the show; said bully did not pass the test.
(+1): His friend, Brett

He jumps the 4th question, which had $25,000. He polls the audience on the 5th, and with their help, he gets $500. He has $18,500 in his bank going into this...

In his Grammy-nominated #1 hit "Grenade," which of these is the only thing Bruno Mars does NOT claim he would do for love?
A: Drown in the ocean
B: Throw his hand on a blade
C: Take a bullet
D: Jump in front of a train

Sam doesn't listen to Bruno Mars, so he calls on his friend. Brett is familiar with the song; based on common sense, he'd go with B, but then again, he notes that that rhymes with the title of the song, so he instead leans towards A. Sam isn't confident, so he decides to walk with $9,250. As for the answer, it's A.

To end the week, Barbara Cikatz and Ruby Hayes are brought in to play Team Millionaire...

"Richard of York gave battle in vain" is a phrase that British schoolchildren use to remember the order of what?
A: Wives of Henry VIII
B: Planets in the solar system
C: Colors of the rainbow
D: Noble gases

A and C are locked in, and one of those is right. They decide to go with A... but it's C!

Siaka & Dave
old school rivals

"Last Man Standing"

ROUND 1: Siaka & Dave start with "Multiple Orgasms" (folks with 5 or more kids), getting four for $400. Helene & Cheyenne pick up "Ol' Blue Eyes" (famous folks with blue eyes), getting three for $300.

As we swap stars, Cheyenne gives on "Jazzercise!" (celebrities with workout videos), getting four for $800, $1100 total. Siaka gives on "The Cat's Pajamas" (famous felines), getting five for $1000, $1400 total.

Round 3 gives us "Every Tom, Dick & Harry" (famous names that inlcude "Tom", "Dick" or "Harry"). Siaka & Dave give away $900, and that proves to be the difference as they win, $3200 to $2100.

Cheyenne plays first in the $20,000 Bonus, getting Jay Leno, Santa Claus, Candy Land, Nicole Kidman, Google, and Sex Pistols. Helene needs four to win. Helene gets Grumpy Cat and Jimi Hendrix, which isn't enough, but they still get $3200.

  Will's hoping to begin the weekend with a hat trick...
Will Anderson

orig. Atlanta
senior legislative aide
Brad Nehring
Federal Way, WA
Sarah Boulding
Rockledge, FL
market research & intelligence senior coordinator

Will starts with $200 Government Jobs. At the TV timeout, the champ is out in front with $4200 to Sarah's $1000. Brad is stalled at the gate.

Brad finds the Daily Double under $800 World Capital Points of Interest. He's going for it on this: enjoy the Van Gogh Museum & the stock exchange, founded in 1602 in this city... but don't stop for any red lights. "What is Amsterdam?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $4000! Thanks to a line-ruling after the break, he ends up with $5000 to $5600 for Will. Sarah's $3400 gives her first picks of the board in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Finnish Him! Brad finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Features of Creatures. He bets $1500 on this: this creature of the genus hippocampus has a prehensile tail & a brood pouch. "What is a possum?" No, it's a seahorse, dropping him to $5700. He has another shot with $2000 The Kids Are Not All Right. He bets the level on this: "Veruca Salt, the little brute. Has just gone down the garbage chute", wrote this author. "Who is Dahl?" Roald Dahl is right for $12,100. He ends up with $15,900 to Will's $8000. Sarah has $7000. Not a runaway by YEA much.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Rivers": this North American river first sailed by Europeans in 1534 is named for a man who was martyred in Rome in the 3rd century. Correct response: what is the St. Lawrence River?

Sarah & Brad are right. Will...not so much. Brad wins $16,001. Will leaves with $24,199.

Let's end the week strong with a woman who can't say no. She is Shontika the Dog. She gets the leftovers from other deals. Let's start off with Nicole the Bacon. She can take $1,000 or the Big Box. She takes the Big Box. Shontika gets the $1,000 and Nicole wins a suite of Electronics including a 55" HDTV with surround system, 13" Macbook Pro, 3D Blu-Ray Player, and Iphone 5S worth $4,648!

Margaret the Greek Goddess of Zonks is playing GO BIG OR GO HOME for a $12,995 Chevy Spark Hatchback. She has to maneuver around the game board and avoid the GO HOME spots. Every time she lands on a cash/prize, that space turns into a GO HOME SPACE. If Margaret can get around the board and land on GO BIG without landing on GO HOME, she will win the Spark and any cash or prize she accumulates along the way. Her first roll is 4 for $1,000. She rolls again and hits 4 and GOES HOME. Consolation roll is $50 X 3 = $150.

Tony from the last deal(a very vocal audience member). He is a trucker/singer. He gets an envelope with 3100 PANAMANIAN BALBOA. Will he take that(and the US Equivalent in cash) or take the Big Box?

For every item that she has, she will get $500. We need a guy to guess if she has it and that guy is Patrick the Pirate. The first item is a TOOTHBRUSH. He says YES and she has it. They both have $500. Next item is a SPATULA. He says YES and she has it. They have $1,000 each. Last item is a BASEBALL. He says NO and she DOES HAVE IT. She has $1,500 and Patrick has $1,000.

Next up is Julia(from the Movie Up) and Constance the Chef are playing for a Toyota Corolla L worth $17,725! Julia and Constance have to spell  the word TOYOTA while avoiding the two ZONKS. The last person to spell the name of the car will drive off in it. A zonk sends them home. Constance goes first after picking the $100 envelope to Julia's $50. She picks 7 and it's Y. Julia picks 4 and she is GONE with her $50. She passes on $300 to pick 3 and T. She passes on $500 and 5 is A. She has T _ Y _ _ A passes on $700 to pick 2 and she is OUT with her $100!

You made it to the end of the week, and as a reward, we're giving you Carol Harrison, Jennifer Hall, John Haynes, Deanne Hlascoe, and an iPhone 6 Plus. With service, it comes to $2069, and Jennifer is hoping to PAY THE RENT! In the mail: Jiffy cake mix for 99c. On the first floor, we have Caress body wash ($4.29) and dental floss ($4.99) for a total of $9.28. On the second floor, Saran wrap for $3.79 and Scotch-Gard for $9.99 for a total of $13.78. Sounds like it's time to bail, but Jennifer goes on to the Liquid Plumr in the attic.... for the money.... $6.49. CORRECT:

Attic: Protectant (9.99)
2F: Cling film/body wash ($8.08)
1F: Clog remover/cake mix ($7.48)
Mail: Floss ($4.99)

That's just ONE solution.

Carol wins a $1748 canoe and a shot at a trip to Canada (6n @ Banff Aspen Lodge) in Flip Flop. The price is not $7551. She flips to $5751... RIGHT!

Deanne scores a $799 wine cooler, but don't drink and drive a... men's watch? Huh? Oh, there's a 2015 DODGE JOURNEY! Okay. Must be time for Any Number.

CAR: $23,94_
Watch: $_06
Ceramic Bacon: $_.25

She picks the 7 and wins...

... $7.25. The car was $23,941, and as a few friends of the site have pointed out, this was pretty much a fool's gambit if you pay attention.

Carol gets the W at the Showcase Showdown W. Meanwhile John completes the first-four sweep with a $1888 set of designer boots. These boots were made for riding a pair of motorcycles in Secret X. The freebie goes top right. He gets another one from a $53 electric skillet. That goes bottom right. The Secret X is... on top.

Estella Blakely gets an $848 satellite radio and a chance to put it in a 2015 MAZDA 3i SPORT after Lucky Seven. First number is 2. Second is 3? No, it's 1 for $2. Third is 7? No, it's 2 for the rest. It was $21,249.

Brittney Owens goes down and up thanks to a $1959 firepit table. Next for her, a pool table, a laptop, and a grill. No injuries as we try to find the Most Expensive. She picks the pool table. The laptop... $1380. The grill... $2088. The pool table... $3895!

John beats Brittney, 40-35, in a Showdown Spinoff, leading to this first Showcase. We're getting musical with a trip to Broadway fantasy camp in New York (6n @ Warwick New York), magical with a trip to the Grenadines (6n @ Palm Island at the Grenadines), and medieval with a trip to Portugal (6n @ Obidos Castle). Top winner Carol passes, and John bids $24,000. Carol gets a 3DTV, a set of Marc Jacobs accessories, and a 2015 KIA FORTE LX. She bids $24,000. So it'll come to who has the Showcase that's closer to $24,000 without going under.

John's Showcase is... $34,587. Carol's Showcase... $23,691. By $309, John takes the day and $36,528!

And George gets a weekend to rest his aching voice. Feel better soon, man!
