We have had four days of Dream Car
Week, and of those days, two of them had Dream Cars - a Porsche
and a Tesla - go out the doors of Television City. Time to end on
a high with Karin Bryan, Craig Celek, Robert Tweedy, and Angela
Boykin, all bidding on a set of small appliances. The $540 package
goes to Craig, who gets to play for an ASTON MARTIN VANTAGE
ROADSTER! But it's not going to be easy, because the game is
That's Too Much!. He thinks $144,240 is too much (which is
understandable)... but it's JUST SHORT! It was $145,810; $147,820.
Again, no one said it would be easy.
Robert wins a $1400 pair of watches and a shot at an HDTV, a
scooter, a set of Kate Spade purses, and a mini-fridge in Step Up.
Of course, there's also the matter of $3000. First, the fridge...
$700. The TV... $2600 for $500. Scooter... $3390 for $1000 more!
He stops there. Good move, because the mini-fridge was $1490.
Samantha Sohnen picks up a $2065 wall fireplace with chair. Not
time to sit yet, because we're going to fly you to Amsterdam (6n)
if you can convert the Squeeze Play. The board...
9 8 1 0 9
She picks off the 8... and $9109 is a winner!
So we end the half 1-1-1 with Robert spinning out $1000.
Meanwhile, Karin gets a $976 set of sunglasses. Can she add on a
sandwich maker, a set of GoPro cameras with accessories, and a
Chevy Camaro? She has 10 Chances. Clearly she's never played this
game before, because it takes three for the $50 sandwich makers
and the rest for the $870 cameras. One more time for the cheap
seats... It should take you AT MOST two times for the small prize
and AT MOST six times for the middle prize. So if you don't have
at least two shots at the car, YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!
Angela scores a $580 laptop. Can she score a sauna & home gym
playing Side by Side? Is it $9064 or $6490? She goes with $6490...
Finally, by George! Dwight George wins a $1333 bass guitar! He'll
have a reason to slap a tune in a moment because IT'S PLINKO TIME!
Given chips from Drew, a $92 blender, and a $10 hair remover, he
wins $10,000! ... which becomes $11,000 thanks to a Spinoff win
over Angela, $1 to 65.
First in the Showcase, fun with 9 with an iPad & iPod nano, a trip
to Miami (5n), and a Hyundai Veloster. Top winner Dwight passes,
and Robert bids $26,500. Dwight gets to visit mountains with a
trip to Colorado (5n @ Colorado Springs), a train tour of the
Canadian Rockies (7n @ Rocky Mountaineer), and a VW New Beetle. He
bids $28,000. Actual price: $38,833, a difference of $10,833.
Actual price of Robert's Showcase... $28,806 for a game-winning
difference of $2306! That gives him a total of $39,495.
Until next week, remember that every car is a dream car to
somebody. Says the guy who drives a Prius to work.
Celebrity Name Game

Host: Craig Ferguson

Rio & Shannon
friends (Rio's a minister)
"Perception" & "Nightshift"
David Alan Grier
Round 1: Dylan & Becca go with "On
the Big Screen" (famous movie characters), getting five for $500.
Rio & Shannon are left with "Open Sesame!" (celebrity guests on
"Sesame Street") getting only Chris Rock for $100.
Round 2: As we swap stars, Rio
gives on "One Hit Wonders" (recording artists on VH1's
list of "100 Greatest One Hit Wonders"), getting
three more for $600, $700 total. Becca gives on "Mom's the
(TV moms & actresses who played them), getting three for $600
more, $1100 total.
In the race to $3000, we have "You're
Gonna Burn in Hell" (folks who've portrayed the Devil). After
the $400 name, we're tied at $1400. Rio & Shannon go boom, boom,
boom for the other three to win, $3200 to $1400.
... which is theirs to keep, but
now let's see if they can turn that into $20,000 in the final
round. Rio gets four of the final 10, leaving Shannon to get the
final six in 30 seconds. They can only come up with three.
In the nightcap (featuring Tom
Arnold & Peter Facinelli), Michael & Shawn (workout buddies) beat
Julie & Andrew (married), $3500 to $2000. In the bonus, they
identify a flower from the picture... but the answer was flower,
so that's game over.

from Grand Forks, ND to Las Vegas. Let's see if Jay finds anyone
willing to take a gamble.
PLAY FOR YOUR SEATMATES: Riley
Smith vs. Tannis Jakelaszic vs. Norm for $1100 for everyone seated
behind you. The player with the most money at the end of this game
gets to share the cash with their seatmates PLUS $250 for
themselves & free cocktails at Social Center Bar at the Palms.
That ends up going to Riley, who wins $780 and drinks for the F
row, PLUS $250 for himself.
WINGMAN: Scott & Lori Storey are
next. They have eight spaces. They need to put eight things in
order from one to eight in 60 seconds for $850 in Activist

question: order the following car brands from least expensive to
most based on prices found at Edmonds.com. The makes: VW Beetle,
Dodge Grand Caravan, Kia Rio, Tesla Model S, Toyota Prius, Hyundai
Elantra, Lamborghini Gallardo, Land Rover SUV. First chance... TWO
correct, Land Rover at 7, Lambo at 8. Second shot... nothing new
there. Final shot... The Prius drops at 4. So they end up with
$60. Correct: Kia, Hyundai, Dodge, Toyota, VW, Tesla, Land Rover,
DO YOU READ
ME?: April Ollander & her friend Tiffany have to convey 10 names

Tiffany and Riley play the BIG DEAL
for 3 nights at the Palms.
APRIL & TIFFANY: Q-3-5-7-5 (4)

the 0, which helps, because they're behind by 20 seconds. With 42
seconds on their clock, Augie pulls the wrong block, and gives the
win to Landon's family! They get a trip to Walking with Dinosaurs
at Staples Center and season passes to Six Flags Magic Mountain &
Hurricane Harbor. Augie's family ends up with $100.

tossup question: which of these are true about Justin Timberlake?
Member of the Mickey Mouse Club... YES! Sang at Grand Ole Opry at
age 10... YES! Allergic to chocolate... No. The third answer:
N'Synch tattoo on ankle. So two of the faces become Wild Cards.
First roll is... Wild-Wild-4-5-Wild. They lock in the 5s. Second
roll... Wild-Wild-Wild-5-4. Final roll... Wild-wild-Wild-5-WILD!
Finally, we have the launch buttons

with a two-space cruiser to win a pair of Sbykes & an ARDrone 2.0.

flirts with three games to end it..
TWO DAY CHAMPION
orig. Dubuque, IA
PhD student in economics
John starts with $200 The Team, The
Team, The Team, finding the Daily Double under $400. He maxes out
on $1000 on this: the athletic teams of this New England school
founded in 1861 are called the Engineers. "What is MIT?" GOOD for
$1200! He ends the round with $4400, tied with Sarah. Alexander
has $3400 and the first clue in Double Jeopardy!...
... with $800 Occupational Last
Names. John finds the first Daily Double under $1200 O Captain, My
Literature Captain. He bets $4000 on this: he "went content to the
crocodile"; instead of "Bad form", his last words should have been
"Here's seconds!" "Who is Captain Hook?" EASY for $10,000! Sarah
finds the other under $2000 14 Letters or More. She bets $2400 on
this: in psychology, this means to separate conflicting feelings
as if into different boxes in order to cope. "What is
compartmentalize?" RIGHT for $10,800! She goes up to $14,400 to
$13,000 for Alexander. John has $10,000.
(C-Note: Special shoutout to friend
of the site Marissa W. for giving me the heads-up on the
Archaeology category in honor of International Archaeology Day)
FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Coats
of Arms": this country's coat of arms features a
palm tree & a 19th century American sailing ship.
Correct response: what is Liberia?
No one gets it, but Alexander has
enough to win with $6000. John leaves with $37,400.

Food: Saturday 1p/12c
Host: Joey Fatone with Marc Summers
owner/head baker, Sweet
pastry chef, BraveTart.com
Today, the cooks are going to
reinvent the marshmallowy treat, the Hostess Sno-Ball, which is
actually a Cup Cake in disguise
ROUND 1: recreate an exact copy of
the Pirouette. Joining Marc on the panel: manager of consumer
affairs for Hostess Nichole Lipari, and pastry chef & cookbook
author Gesine Bullock-Prado.
Everyone's doing something
different than the usual. Alina is using Dutch cocoa, Michael is
using butter, and Stella is using mochi dough.
Alina: 8-7-8 = 23
Michael: 6-6-6 = 18
Stella: 6-5-5 = 16... and that's a wrap for Stella.
ROUND 2 (30 minutes to create an
innovative dish using the Sno-Ball): Not only will you be judged
on taste and appearance, but also creativity. We are going to
reset the scores, and the player with the higher score at the end
of the round wins.
Alina: Five-Spice Torte with
Michael: Key Lime Tart with Charred Marshmallow
Alina's raspberries didn't make
Marc's dish, which may cost her. The winner... by
a score of 21 to 19... is MICHAEL! More Sno-Balls than he knows
what to do with. That's what he wins, a year's worth.

Which pop singer's first name was inspired by her mother's maiden
A: Beyonce Knowles

Josh knows about all four of them. He sees Taylor as a common last

Kyle LaRose (Attleboro, MA)
His grandmother (in the audience beside the Plus One) is very
proud of him for getting onto the show.
He asks the audience on the 2nd question, and gets $7,000 from it!
