Today, Millionaire celebrates Mickey Mouse's 90th anniversary! If the contestant gets their $5,000 question right, they get a $5,000 Disney gift card along with the money, and if they correctly answer their $50,000 question, they also get a trip for two to New York City to check out "Mickey: The True Original Exhibition!"

Kyle Foster (Las Vegas, NV) gets things going today. He easily secures $5,000, then gets help from his Plus One, Jessica, at $10,000, the audience at $30,000, and the 50:50 to secure $50,000! He then faces this...

All but which of the following are true of Tony the Tiger as he currently appears on boxes of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes?
A: The "whites" of his eyes are yellow
B: His whiskers are orange
C: His ears are black and white
D: The tip of his nose is blue

Kyle doesn't know. Since it's a free guess, he guesses B... and it's B!

In May 1849 Abraham Lincoln was granted what is still the only patent ever obtained by an American president -- for what invention?
A: A plow designed to cut through dense soil
B: An inexpensive plug for wine bottles
C: A mechanism to increase a ship's buoyancy
D: A writing desk for left-handed children

Kyle remembers Lincoln being strong, so he could see him building a plow. This would just be a guess, though, so he walks. After seeing that the answer is C, he leaves with the gift card, the trip, and $100,000!

Tony, a military brat originally from Hawaii now living in Columbia, SC, gets to play for $200,000 first. He gets Q1 right... but needs help on...

- Q2: In "The Incredibles", the Parrs' supersuits were made by what eccentric fashion designer? He says "Edna Rita"... but it was Edna Mode. The kids have it, so he can continue on, albeit for $150,000.

He gets up to Q4 for $5000, but plays on. He gets the next two, but then...

- Q7: In the US, "Peewee", "Extra Large", and "Jumbo" are all official sizes of what? He says "popcorn"... but they're eggs. Do the kids have it? ... no. He leaves with $2500 for the 5 he got right.

Linda, a lawyer from Chicago, is next with her husband. She gets three in a row to start, but gets hung up at the safeguard...

- Q4: What movie character once bragged that he "... made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs?" Is it "Forrest Gump?" Nope, it was "Han Solo"... which the kids knew. Will she risk the $5000? She will.

Two questions and two correct answers later...

- Q7: If you're at a hardware store buying a float, flapper & fill valve, what are you fixing at home? She says a drain... which is close. It was a toilet. The kids... flush her down with $2500.

mom Mary & twins Cheyenne & Theresa
mom Blanch, daughter Tiera & son-in-law Brandon

On the panel for this Thanksgiving throwdown, Beau Macmillan, Damaris Phillips, and Carl Ruiz.

  Two weeks ago, Ramsay called the experiment over as he adjusted the teams to the standard men vs. women. A bit soon, but welcome for the Boys in Blue. One of them - Kevin - talks about life with kids to Mia. Pay attention, this is relevant.

TEAM CHALLENGE #5: Versatility. Accompanied by gifted pop composer Stephan Moccio, you'll have to prepare a flying... err, falling halibut seven different ways - steamed, baked, grilled, poached, smoked, pan-seared, and shallow-fried. Guest judging will be Michelin-starred chef David LeFevre.
- WINNER: Reds, 5-3

REWARD: The girls are heading to face off against zombies... in VR. They also win a set of Vitamix blenders, the official blender of Hell's Kitchen.
PUNISHMENT: The men have to compost the trash... in the rain. They also have to prep the next service.

DINNER SERVICE #4: Among the VIPs in attendance: Stephanie Beatriz, Carly Hughes, and Sarah Shahi. The special today: tableside mussels courtesy of Healther and Chris. Chris was waiting for a tableside order instead of helping his team. When he did, he ends up sending raw scallops. T overdid an order of scallops AND did one properly. She manages to recover. On entrees, Mia checked Wellingtons by slicing in the middle instead of the ends. Gizzy lacked confidence on lamb... only to have them cooked perfectly. The women have no further issue completing the service... while the men have a completely different story with Kevin cooking one salmon short, Scotley getting in the weeds on garnish, and Bret serving up cold sauce for the Wellingtons. Their night is over EARLY, and the women arrive to finish the job.

NOMINATION #4: Trev nominated Scotley and Kevin.
- ELIMINATED: Kevin, who had no fight back compared to the last time he was here, partly because he believes that he's a success outside of Hell's Kitchen. He warns the rest of the brigade not to underestimate passion.

"Kevin was a standout in his first time in Hell's Kitchen. Unfortunately, this time around, he seemed more determined to head back to the ski slopes than to the Las Vegas Strip."

Jonathan Greenan
Charlottetown, PE
legal officer

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Alphabet City, Kids' Books, The Gender-Free Option, If You Can't Beat'em..., The Elephant, In the Room.

... with $400 Alphabet City. At the TV timeout, the champ is up, $4200 to $3600 for Laura. Jonathan is on $400.

Jonathan finds the Daily Doubl eunder $600 In the Room. He doubles the level on this: this musical includes the song "The Room Where It Happens". "What is 'Hamilton'?" That's right... but he went with "Cabaret", dropping him to $1600. He recovers to $4000 to $5600 for Emily. Laura on $3800 starts...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Treasures of the National Portrait Gallery, They're "Great", Units of Measure, Roman Emperors, Pattern Recognition, Cast Irons

.... with $400 Roman Emperors. Laura finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Treasures of the National Portrait Gallery. She wagers $2000 on this: before it was a Sam Peckinpah film title, it was a real Western gang including Butch & Sundance. "Waht is 'The Untouchables'?" Nope, they were "The Wild Bunch", leaving her with $3000. Jonathan finds the other under $1600 Units of Measure. He fronts $3000 on this: named for an Englishman, it's the basic unit of force in the International System. "What is a newton?" RIGHT for $15,800. He ends up in the lead with $14,200 to $13,600 for Emily. Laura can spoil with $3600.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Surnames": evoking speed & luxury, this one of the 10 most common Italian surnames goes back to the Latin word for iron. Correct response: what is Ferrari?

Everyone's right, but Jonathan wins $27,201. Emily leaves with $64,503.
