$6200. Nikhil, by $5, will get the board to start Double

Scott finds the first Daily Double under $2000. He's going for it
on this: around 1900 this young Italian painter was influenced by
a group called the Macchaioli, or "Stainers". "Who is Boccioni?"
No, it was Modigliani, leaving him with nothing. Nikhil finds the
other under $800 In the Dictionary. He bets $2000 on this:
fittingly, it means "empty orchestra" in Japanese. "What is
karaoke?" That would've been an easy two grand, but Nikhil....

Monopoly Millionaires' Club
by Chico Alexander
Syn: check listings, also playing on YouTube
Host: Billy Gardell with Todd Newton
Last week, someone did the
unthinkable, rolling their way to a million. The question now...
PARK IT: From the
Cats, we get Patricia (Cherry's sister, Maryland Lottery), who
loves game shows. All she has to do is park the cars in the
Monopoly garage in order from cheapest to most expensive. First is
the Light Blue car... $2000. Starting at the bottom, but she parks
it at level 2. Pink car... $1000! That goes in the bottom. VERY
lucky there. Green car... $10,000! Top of the world, ma! She's
batting aces. Next is the White car... $5000. She parks it in
level 3. That means that the $3000 and the $4000 car will end the
game. The odds are in her favor, though. Will she take $18,000 and
go home or play on? She's risking it with the Dark Blue car...
$4000. GAME OVER.
Ronnie (Ellenboro, NC/North
Carolina Education Lottery) is with Todd Newton and the Cash
Register. Six keys - three will add one zero, three will add two
zeroes. D: TWO zeroes!. B: another zero for $1000.
BLOCK PARTY: Nelson from the
Battleships (Nilda's son/New York Lottery) gets to play the 12
cards. #3... Brown for $1000. #7... DARK BLUE for $20,000! #1...
Reds for $5000! #11... STRIKE ONE. #12... Pinks for $3000! #6...
BLOCK PARTY! He locks in the greens for a total of $39,000! He
stops this party with $39,000! Nelson gets $19,500, and the
Battleships get $19,500.
COMMUNITY CHEST: Jack boots from
the Boots (Independence, MO/MO Lottery). Ten chests from $500 to
$5000. You open one up and keep what's inside. Meanwhile the money
on the board is doubled. He can keep the money he's won or trade
for another one. But if the next chest is less than what he trades
back, the game is over and he wins nothing. #4... $3000. Next
round has seven good chests, two bad. He trades it in for #6...
$2000. That was quick.
ELECTRIC COMPANY: Paula from the
Dogs (Haverhill, MA/NH Lottery) gets 10 levers, each with 1 to 10
lights. Turn on 24: $100,000. Turn on 25, and she'll blackout the
stage AND her bank. First switch is #8... five for $250. Second is
#4... 2 for $350. #2... Six for $800. Still no danger. #9... seven
for $25,000! She's got even odds of staying in the game. Will she
split with $25,000? She's going on with #5... OVERCHARGED.
Todd's with John (Coral Springs,
FL/Florida Lottery) and the first block of the Monopoly board with
four blueprints. One hides 1 hotel, one hides 2, one hides 3, the
last one doesn't hide any. Pick two, and if you get five hotels,
$10,000. B... three hotels. C... two for $10,000!
NO VACANCY: Bill from the Wheelbarrows (Fort Wayne, IN/Hoosier
Lottery) is the landlord of the Hotel Monopoly. The seven rooms on
the bottom are worth $1000, in the middle it's $2000, and at the
penthouse, it's $3000. Don't overbook the rooms! Red.. 4 guests.
They go to the VIP suites for $12,000. Red again... 1. They join
the rest of them for another $3000. Green... TWO to book the top
row, $21,000 in the bank. Back to the red... four more in the
middle row for $8000 more, $29,000. Red again... five. They go in
the economy suites for $5000, giving us $34,000. Do not book more
than 4 guests next. Will he take the money or go on? He stops with
$17,000 for him, $17,000 for the Wheelbarrows.
GO FOR A MILLION: The winners are back on stage
to see who will play for a million. But in order to play, you have
to give up your winnings. The player who's willing to risk the
most will play the final game. Today, it's NELSON! He's
giving up $39,000 for a shot at a million. All he has to do is land on GO.
He gets five rolls to
pass GO. If he passes GO, he wins $200,000 - $100,000 for him,
$100,000 for his section. If he lands on GO, he wins the million,
and his section splits the audience jackpot of $200,000. If he rolls doubles three times
or lands on Go To Jail, the game is over.
- 10 to Just Visiting for a Trip to
Alcatraz in San Francisco
- 5 to Pennsylvania Railroad for a Trip to New York
- 10 to B&O Railroad for a Trip to Paris
- 3 to Water Works (mini-game) for #2... a hot tub!
Double 6 will get him the million.
Snake eyes will send him to jail.
- 5 to Community Chest (mini game -
one card says "Advance to Go", the others are cash) for #2...
$15,000. But he has trips to San Francisco, New York & Paris, a
hot tub, and $7500. The rest of the Battleships get $7500.

Dearly beloved... we are gathered here
today in the sight of Bob and all of this presence to bear witness
to the conclusion of Couples Week, where the entire audience -
made up of roughly 100 or so engaged couples - will be married
right before the Showcases. Drew, who is actually legally ordained
in the state of California to do so, will officiate.
First, we have Patricia Thompson & Dawyne Burton, Dovie Poe &
Terrence Mason, Jennifer Kwan & Jaime Amores, Tamani Elliott &
Baron Littleton, and a trip to Palm Springs (3n @ The Koriaka
Pensione). The $2184 trip goes to Jennifer & Jaime, who get to
drive back in a Nisasn Versa S+ if they can beat Let'em Roll. They
get only the free roll, and with it... $2500.
Baron & Tamani get a $1699 HDTV and a chance at Jimmy Choos marked
at $2690 and a grill marked at $1269 if they outwit Bargain Game.
They think the shoes are the bigger bargain. The grill... $2289.
The shoes.. $3190. A grand beats half a grand.
Katelyn Garcia & Nikolas Burzen go down and up the aisle with a
$1550 electric fireplace. They can put that alongside their new
dining room with dinnerware & stemware if they home in on Range
Game. They stop at $9105. The price... $9055.
The future Mr. & Mrs. Littleton beat the future Mr. & Mrs. Burzen,
95-75 in a Spinoff. Meanwhile, Patricia & Dwayne get a $708 pair
of laptops with cases. They then take a cutlery set to a Swap Meet
for a set of cookware, small electrics, and a kitchen cart. They
swap for the electrics... $1055. The cutlery set.. $1055!
Veronica Lopez & James Gutierrez get a $921 set of sunglasses and
a chance to win flowers & dinner for a year... and a Ford Fiesta
in Rat Race. They control two: the pink from a $4.19 bottle of
Herbal Essences shampoo and the Blue from a $150 wine cooler.
Around the stretch they come, and ... it's Yellow, followed by
Orange, followed by BLUE for the flowers.
We're down to crunch time for Dovie & Terrence, as they get a
camcorder with bag. The price... 2900. The winners... Blake Moore
& Claudia Padilla. They'll try for a trip to Argentina (6n @
Panamericano Buenos Aires) in Pick-a-Number.
0 7 9 are the numbers of great importance.
They pick the 7... $9750 is a winner.
If anyone reading this can show any cause why this recap should
include the actual wedding, speak now or forever hold your peace.
Nobody? Okay, let's get to the legality of the situation.
The new Mr. & Mrs. Moore meet the new Mr. & Mrs. Littleton in the
Showcase, which is being held for the first time not at homebase
but on Plinko Island. First up, a pair of bicycles to take on your
honeymoon to Rome (6n @ Hotel Atlante Star), and when you come
back, you'll have a Honda Fit! Top winners the Moores bid $25,000.
The Littletons get a pair of bathrobes to take on their honeymoons
to Greece (6n @ Sheraton Rhodes Resort) and Thailand (6n @ BYD
Lofts Boutique Hotel in Phuket). They bid $22,027. Actual price..
$23,391, a difference of $1364. Actual price of the Moores'
Showcase... $32,283, a difference of $7283.
By the power vested in me by GSNN and our parent partner
Stormseeker Digital and almightly Thor, GOD OF THUNDER... I now
pronounce that the Littletons be winners today with $25,090. What
you won together, let only the IRS rend asunder. And you may kiss
Couples Week goodbye.

Host: Terry Crews
Carl Perez (Bethesda, MD)
He looks young, yet he's 37 years old.
(+1): His wife, Jeanette
He asks the audience on the 1st question, but with the results
being close, he jumps it and the $500 it had. He sees this with
The Rolls-Royce Phantom's $400,000 price tag includes what handy
item that emerges from the door at the press of a button?
B: Shoeshine kit
Carl feels that it would have to be something one could need upon
exiting the car, which leads him to think A or C. He then sees the
word "handy" in the question, leading him to then think it would
be something one carries. With that, he says D... but it's C! That
sends him home with $1,000.
Linda Kerr (Houston, TX)
She jumps the 3rd question, which had $15,000. She turns to the
audience on the 4th, and with their help, she gets $2,000 more!
She has $35,000 heading into this...
Rule 2, Section 1 of what sports league's rule book states, "The
Ball must be a 'Wilson'"?
Linda considers each option, then goes with A... but it's C! With
that, she leaves with $1,000.
To end the week, Kelly Edwards (Gadsden, AL) is picked from the
audience to play for $1,000...
Due to "a tough economy that rewards youth and beauty," a recent
Slate article argued that men should start wearing what?
C: High heels
D: Fishnet stockings
Kelly is thinking A or B. She goes with A... and she's right for
