Escape Clause

Race to Escape Premiere
by Chico Alexander

Science: Saturday 10p/9c
Host: Jimmy Pardo
Official WebsiteAvailable in HD
  Two teams of three. Two identical rooms. One hour to escape for up to $25,000. Today, it's the Explorer's Study.
Kaylee - 28
Three Rivers, MI
"metaphysical maniac"
Mikey - 38
Southern California
"Bird's eye"
Donald - 37
orig. Buffalo
college professor
Megan - 29
Los Angeles
roller derby queen
Carey - 44
grave digger
Lee - 30
South Dakota

So here's the deal. Everything you need to escape is in this room. All you have to do is follow the clues and solve the puzzles. If you want to, you can use a Code Breaker to tell you exactly how to find your next code, BUT it will cost them $5000. They will have to wait five minutes to use it, and it is not available for Clue #5. All three teammates must agree to use it together. You will have three tries to input a code into the keypad, but three wrong, and the keypad will lock up for two minutes.

CLUE 1: The first is a table maze with four balls. Each ball has a letter that spells the combination to the table - BYOX. That leaves to another code: 4-3-8-6.

CLUE 2: Look in Clue Drawer. Weigh Each Option Carefully. They're given a gold plate with letters and a scroll with riddles. Solving them will give you the second code.  Weighing the solutions to the six riddles will spell out PULL OUT ANTLERS. They do: 7-8-1-2

CLUE 3: A small print of a painting and a pocket knife. The smaller print matches a larger print in the room. That sends the teams on a chase through paintings until they get the Roman numeral for 12, XII. That leads to a clock. That leads to a radiator. That leads to another code. 6-6-6-7.

CLUE 4: A key that fits in the fireplace. Meanwhile 20 minutes have elapsed. For every minute that passes from here on out, the teams will lose $500 from the prize fund. Winding the key releases a slider puzzle. Release the gold piece to find a series of letters: QSTFWFJBTLZTFJ. The Blues decide to use the Code Breaker: "The solved floor puzzle reveals the clue: QST FWFJ BTLZ TFH. Use the typewriter to figure out the rest." That gives us the next code: 2-9-4-1.

CLUE 5: "PEACE! Celebration All Over France". Under the headline is a picture of a guy popping a champagne bottle in celebration, so perhaps you have to "celebrate... all over France". As in the French map hanging on the wall. The final code: 5-6-1-2.

It was the Blue Team's to lose. And they lost it. Congrats to the RED TEAM, who wins $10,000!

  Where 24 robots one stood, now only four remain. At the end of the hour, there will only be one bot to rule them all  
Roboteer: Ray Billings
Folsom, CA
AGG: 83 / CON: 67 / WPN: 100 / DEF: 32
Roboteer: Reason Bradley/Inertia Labs
parts unknown
AGG: 89 / CON: 80 / WPN: 89 / DEF: 83

The #1 Tombstone has been eating up the competition, and it was this close to eating it last week. The win against Witch Doctor came with a price - its weapon bar and frame need to be repaired. Bronco needs a new strategy, so it goes into the shop to reconfigure for this match. Bronco loses its a right wheel!

WINNER BY KO: TOMBSTONE (2:17). But it is not without damage. They're going to have to go back to the drawing board and come up with a new plan before the final. The second semi...

Ghost Raptor
Roboteer: Chuck Pitzer
Newark, CA
AGG: 59 / CON: 69 / WPN: 79 / DEF: 44
Bite Force
Roboteer: Paul Ventimiglia
Worcester, MA
AGG: 60 / CON: 81 / WPN: 67 / DEF: 71

In one of the closest matches of the competition, Bite Force just squeaked by Overhaul, while Ghost Raptor has upset ICEWave. Both will have to do some serious adaptation in order to survive the semi and face Tombstone.


Before we get to the final, we have Battle Royale action among Witch Doctor, Overhaul, and Nightmare. Winner of this match gets nothing but pride. WINNER: NIGHTMARE.

Now the moment you've been waiting for. The box is locked. The lights are on. IT'S FINALS TIME!

Roboteer: Ray Billings
Folsom, CA
AGG: 83 / CON: 67 / WPN: 100 / DEF: 32
Bite Force
Roboteer: Paul Ventimiglia
Worcester, MA
AGG: 60 / CON: 81 / WPN: 67 / DEF: 71

Both bots will have to do some serious rebuilding in order to battle. Tombstone is starting to smoke! His weapon is deactivated! Bite Force is taking the battle to Tombstone! This one is going to go the distance!

  Scott's got the four he needs to qualify for the Tournament of Champions. Will he break $100,000 tonight?
Scott Lord

Santa Monica, CA
construction attorney
Tracy McCarthy
Vista, CA, CA
customer service manager
Sam Suarez
Cary, NC
post-doctoral researcher

Scott starts with $200 Apostolic Names. At the TV timeout... in a word... DAMN! Sam leads with $6200 to Scott's $0. Tracy is $800 down.

Scott finds the Daily Double under $600 Not Chess Again! He maxes out on this: in a set of standard Staunton-style pieces, not bishops but these pieces are topped with crosses. "What are kings?" RIGHT for $1800! He ends with $2600 to Sam's $8000. Tracy has $2400 and the first go in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Pop Culture (this particular clue is sponsored by Columbia Pictures' release "Pixels" - in theaters now). Tracy finds the first Daily Double under $1600 "A"+ in History. She bets $3000 on this: flourishing between 3000 & 1100 BC, Cycladic & Minoan were 2 of the cultures named for this sea. "What is the Aegean?" Scott finds the other under $1200 The Securities & Exchange Commission for $1200. He bets $1000 on this: the SEC regulates this type of 5-letter material that allows shareholders to vote without being present. "What is a proxy?" Right for $11,600. Really close game as Scott has $13,600 to Tracy's $13,800 and Sam's $14,400. We're looking at a $14,000 game of chicken.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "National Airlines": this small land's airline advertises a "stopover": 7 nights at no extra travel charge to break up a Boston-Brussels trip. Correct response: what is Iceland (Icelandic Air or Icelandic Airlines also acceptable)?

Scott played it safe. Tracy... missed. Sam... also missed. Scott pulls it out to run the week with $14,600, giving him a five-day take of $108,002.
