On the judges' panel today: Food Network star Marcela Valladolid, UK Iron Chef Judy Joo, and executive chef & restaurateur Brian Malarkey.

Scott: Salmon Taco with Spicy Aioli
Brett: Seared Scallops with Bacon Cauliflower Puree & Arugula Salad

Nailed it. CART SWAP! Brett grabs one more item, a halibut.

Scott: Marinated Scallops with Bacon Cauliflower Puree & Arugula Salad

On the list du jour: Tomato paste, a pizza topping, frozen cauliflower, onion powder, grapefruit juice, an alcohol in a margarita, a cream-filled cookie, a laundry room item, mango, and sunflower seeds.

  Returning champions the Oliver family got lucky and their luck hopes to continue when they now play against the Lacy family.
Rylan, Darticia, Ysha, Shari, Reggie
Columbia, TN
Denise, Katie, Karlee, Kristen, Bill
Lanett, AL


SINGLE:  something at a supermarket a man might squeeze a little too romantically.
1. Melons 57             5. Peaches 5
2. Lemons 10             6. Toilet paper 4
3. Tomatoes 9
4. Bread 7

SINGLE: a mean way to break up with someone.
1. Text/"Adios loser" 59 5. Assault/Throw pie 4
2. E-mail 6              6. Someone else do it 4
3. Soc. media/#Itsover6  7. Yell insults 4
4. Ignore/Don't call 5

DOUBLE: something a handsome guy might have that's ugly.
1. Feet 30
2. Personality/'tude 21
3. Car 14
4. Wife/Mate 7

Besides chicken, name a bird people eat.
1. Turkey 64
2. Duck 13
3. Pheasant 12
4. Quail 7

The Lacys took control on all the surveys, but with the Olivers got the #3 answer that was left on the last survey to send the game to sudden death.

Sudden death question: In horror movies, name something that psychos kill their victims with. Lacys get in first and win it with a Knife (69).

Shari & Reggie are now going to try their luck in Fast Money. Shari did well with her answers getting 103. Reggie's last answer was very costly, as he misunderstood the question. He should have said New York and not Florida, and they would have had it but that misstep will only get them $860.

Fast Money #1 answers
- When they can't find a spoon name people use to stir their coffee: Knife
- Someone who knows more about you than you would like: Spouse/Mate (Reggie)
- Fill in the blnk. "Spin ______." what?: The bottle (Shari)
- A shoe size for a man with small feet: Size 8 (Shari)
- An American city that attracts tourists from all over the world: New York City

In the nightcap, returning champions the Rosado family will now play against the Rice family.

Name something of her husband's, a wife might kick when she's mad at him.
1. Shins/Body 52
2. Car/Truck 20
3. Golf clubs/bag 9
4. Shoes/Boots 8

The Rice family took control and the Rice family has to get #3 if they wanted to play sudden death, but the last answer wasn't the kids, meaning the Rosados win another game.

Mario & Rick will try Fast Money again. Mario had some rough answers, thinking Santa works out and tiddle as a word that rhymes with riddle, but recovers at the end to get 64. Rick said Brittle as a word that rhymes with riddle. His answer was too brittle as he should've said fiddle (or maybe middle) which proved costly. So they now have a four-day total of $21,475 and a win on Monday's show, will get them a new Ford Fusion Hybrid.

Frank gets noise-cancelling headphones, while Sandra wins another $100 and a chance at a third $100 with a question: what type of bird, with a colorful beak, is depicted on each box of "Froot Loops" cereal? "The toucan?" RIGHT for $300 total!

She passes on $200 for the next pick which is 7 and it's GOLD for $500. She goes on with 2 and it's GOLD. She has $1,000 and goes on with 1 and she has GOLD. She has $2,000 and goes on with 5 which is the 2nd dynamite. She is OUT.

Maria the Ball Pit Lady who gets a clue from Wayne's Diary read by Jonathan for Curtain 1. The clue is: Wayne had fun playing with the prize behind Curtain 1.

Michelle rolls the ball down the slide and lands on a C. Under this C is $600. Michelle can give up her $600 to roll again or stop. If she rolls again, all four C's are now ZONK spaces. She must get an A or R to continue the game. She plays on and rolls ball 2 for an A. Under the A is $1,100. She can stop with her $1,700 or go for a 1 in 4 shot at the Convertible because now the C's AND A's are now zonk spaces. Michelle is going for it and she rolls...A ZONK!

We need one lady and two guys. Charlotte the Pac Man Ghost, Marquise the SWAT guy and Shaun the BBQ Guy. Charlotte is the boss deciding for everyone.

Charlotte wins a trip to Chicago for 3N at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park worth $6,346!

Last deal involves little girl Kristen who can take $200/number on a dice roll($400-$2,400) or the small box. She takes the cash and passes on a trip to San Francisco for 5N at the Chancellor Hotel in Union Square with 12MP DSLR worth $3,305. She wins $200 X 5 = $1,000!

Congratulations! You made it through the week, and your reward... Qiana Ross, Christopher Roney, Dan Postelle, and Krista Kerschen bidding on a pair of tablets with a charging station. The $598 set foes to Krista, who gets to play for a pair of bicycles, Cole Haan accessories, an Xbox One with games & accessories, and a 3DTV on a $6500 Shopping Spree. Fashion accessories... $2186. 3DTV... $3000! Not-fashion accessories... not enough. $710.

Dan wins $1960 his & hers watches and a shot at a Kia Soul in Lucky Seven. First number: 1. 8... $2 for the 6. Second guess is 7... $5 for the 2... and Bye Felicia...

Qiana gets a $1000 elliptical... and a chance at enough to buy 50 of them. IT'S PLINKO TIME! With chips from Drew, a $59 toaster oven, a $10 hair remover, a $42 fabric steamer, and a $75 citrus juicer, she wins... $2000. She also wins a spot in Showcase Row. And a long overdue one in this recapper's humble opinion... Krista had to spin the wheel FOUR TIMES in order to register a score.

Meanwhile, Jessica Mitchell gets an $800 hammock and a chance to rock it for a barbecue island in Pushover.

2 6 4 5 8 9 9 0 7

She pushes to $5899... One too many. It was $8990.

Next up, Christopher comes to play and gets a $2048 iPod with headphones. Now pack your bags for Seattle (6n @ Grand Hyatt Seattle) if you can split the uprights of Magic #. He dials it to 2069. The trip to Seattle... $4762. The luggage... $1220!

Finally, Dale Kornegay wins a $1299 camcorder with bag. Can he picture himself in a Jeep Patriot Sport? One Away is the game, but $34,538 is not the price. Is it $25,629? The lady in the back gives us one... two.... just two. Is it $25,447? The price... $23,647. But he does end up with $1000 thanks to some fancy wheel spinning.

First up in the Showcase, a trio of trips: Napa Valley (5n @ The Villagio Inn), New York City (5n @ the Kimberly with Broadway Fantasy Camp passes), and the Galapagos Islands (6n). Top winner Qiana passes, and Dale bids $23,000. Qiana gets sound effects associated with an all-in-one PC, a hot tub, and a Nissan Sentra. She bids $24,000. Actual price: $30,298, a difference of $6298. Actual price of Dale's Showcase.... $21,769. And Qiana gets the W today with the lion's share of the lot, $33,484!

As a reminder. We're going three-and-out next week, culminating in the Thanksgiving Special Wednesday. Don't miss it!

  Andy Cohen from "Watch What Happens: Live" goes into this episode with $37,600 through 6 questions; he still has his Plus One available.

He doesn't need it yet, as he sweeps the rest of Round 1 with a total of $63,600! Next up: Round 2...

Reportedly costing $1.25 million, the engagement ring Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian was 15 carats. About how many times larger is the Hope Diamond?
A: 1
B: 2
C: 3
D: 4

Having no idea, Andy calls on his Plus One: his roommate from college, Dave. Dave isn't sure how big the Hope Diamond is, but he's thinking D. Still, Andy decides to walk. After seeing that the answer is C, he leaves with $63,600 for Doorways!

Robert Herjavec - "Shark Tank"
Charity: Seattle's Union Gospel Mission
(+1): His friend, Steve Simpkiss

He jumps the 2nd question, missing out on $25,000. He has $10,100 when this pops up...

Using the Spanish word, if you had negative feelings about being pregnant, it could be said that you were what?
A: Bored of being "borreda"
B: Angry about being "angarita"
C: Embarrassed about being "embarazada"
D: Tired of being "tireda"

Focused more on the negative feelings part of the question, Robert says B... but it's C! As a result, Seattle's Union Gospel Mission gets $10,000.

But he's not done yet; to finish the week, Robert and his Plus One will now play Team Millionaire to earn some more money for the charity...

Using a suffix reserved for women, which of these last names comes from an old English word meaning "female weaver"?
A: Hooper
B: Carter
C: Glover
D: Webster

A and B are both locked in; both are wrong. They then agree on D... and they're right for $500 each!
