JEOPARDY! ROUND: Fantasy Island, Mottoes, Live Entertainment, Official Languages, Hunting & Fishing, Antonyms

Jason starts with $1000 Fantasy Island, finding the Daily Double under $1000 Mottoes. He's pulling the trigger for all the marbles on this: the New York Times has used this 7-word motto on its front page since 1897. "What is 'All the news that's fit to print'?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $3600! He ends with $12,800 to $2600 for Tabitha. Jack on $400 will command the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Sage Against the Machine, Crossword Clues "O", Surnames, International Literature, Their Entire Oscar Speech, Get Him to the Ancient Greek.

... with $1600 International Literature. Jason finds the Daily Double under $1600 Surnames. He wagers $6000 on this: in Vietnam, an estimated 40% of the population answer to this last name, the country's most popular. "What is Nguyen?" RIGHT for $19,400! He also finds the one under $2000 Sage Against the Machine. He fronts $8000 on this: in 1816 Lord Byron penned a "Song for" these loom-smashing rioters who were being displaced by new technology. "Who are the Luddites?" RIGHT for $36,800! He ends up with $44,400. And again, it's not even a contest with Jack at $5600 and Tabitha at $1400.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Presidential Candidates": this is the most recent presidential election year when both major presidential candidates were residents of the same state. Correct response: what is 2016?

Tabitha had BETTER get this right, as both candidates were from New York. Jason gets it right to win another $58,400, giving him a 11-day total of $332,243.

- Lifelong Besties: When I think of RVs, I think of (A, C, C, F, RT, T, V). They get vacation, road trips, camping, and travel. The Fantasy Friends could not add on cramped, Airstream, or freedom to stay at 500 to 500 for the Besties.

- Fantasy Friends: It seems like every superhero is named after an animal like (A-M, B, BP, BW, H, R, S-M). They get Batman, Ant-Man, and Black Panther. The Lifelong Besties score off of Black Widow and Spider-Man, but not Hawkeye or Robin.
- Lifelong Besties: Teenagers are lucky they don't have to pay for their own (C, C, E, F, G, H, I). They get cellphones, food, insurance, gas, and housing. The Fantasy Friends clear out with education and clothes to end up with 1500 to the Besties' 1900.

- Lifelong Besties: My dog gets so excited when he or she hears the word (B, B, D, F, O, T, W). They go with outside, treats, walk, and dinner for 1200, 3100. The Fantasy Friends pick up fetch and ball for 2100. The other answer: bacon.
- Fantasy Friends (4 to stay in it, 6 to win it): To turn it on, you have to plug your (C, CI, HD, L, P, T, V) into the wall. They get lamp, TV... and that's it. The Lifelong Besties win, 3100-2700! The other answers: curling iron, hairdryer, computer, printer, and vacuum.

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader

Playing with Cooper, Isabella, Jamir, Nick, and Quinne is Alissa, an EMT & firefighter who graduated cum laude... and also attended Stenstrom in Oviedo, FL

FRONT GAME: 1st Grade Earth Science, 2nd Grade US Geography, 3rd Grade Math, 3rd Grade Music, 4th Grade Geometry, 4th Grade US History

Much like the first game last week, Alissa sweeps through the first three levels, leaving her cheats for 4th grade.
- 4th Grade Geometry: How many total degrees are there if you add up the interior angles in an equilateral triangle? She goes with  her peek. Quinne said... 180. True of all triangles, really. She's right.
- 4th Grade US History: What founding father served as the first Postmaster General for the US Postal Service? She uses her Copy. Correct answer is Ben Franklin... which is what Quinne had. So she banks $10,000.

5th GRADE FINAL EXAM: Isabella is going to try to get Alissa over the $100,000 hump.
- Grammar: What is the prefix in the word "untouchable"?: "UN-" (x2)
- World Geography: Micronesia is a country made up of a group of islands located in what ocean? PACIFIC (x3)
- Astronomy: Mars or Venus: which planet is closest in size to the mass of Earth? VENUS (x4)
- Social Studies: What president established the Peace Corps in 1961?: FINAL CHEAT!
- Ancient History: According to legend, King Dionysus hung a sword by a single strand of hair over whose head: ULYSSES (Damocles)

So the perfecto is off the board, but she can still win $50,000 if Isabella has the right answer to the Social Studies question... is it JFK? YES!

But still, $50,000 is not $100,000, so...

"My name is Alissa, and I may have an honors degree, but I am NOT smarter than a 5th grader!"

All season long, we've seen the best of the best face each other in the Battlebox. Now it's time to round out the top contenders and put them in the tournament for the Giant Nut.

BUT FIRST... a twist! One last chance for 17 robots to complete the field already inhabited by... Bite Force, Black Dragon, Death Roll, Hydra, Sawblaze, Tombstone, Whiplash, and Witch Doctor.

All bouts tonight will be considered "win-and-in".

Roboteer: Leanne Cushing
Somerville, MA
Roboteer: James Cooper
Birmingham, UK

For this match, the modular Valkyrie has opted for a bowtie blade they affectionately called "Sweet Caroline". Will it be enough, or will Quantum throw her for a leap?


Roboteer: Greg Gibson/Team Yeti
Wasilla, AK
Roboteer: Hal Rocker/Team Black & Blue
Hillsborough, CA

Yeti already enters this last-chance battle with a decent record, but a win will seal the deal.


Roboteer: Donald Hutson
San Diego
Roboteer: Zachary Lytle/Offbeat Robotics
Lafayette, CA

After a pair of slow starts, both bots enter this battle at 3-1. But there's only room for one.


Roboteer: Will Bales
Cape Cod, MA
Roboteer: Jonathan Schultz/Team HUGE
South Windsor, CT

Both bots are coming off of statement wins, Hypershock against Breaker Box and HUGE against Bronco. Now they're up against each other.

RailGun MAX
Roboteer: Elaine Wu/Team Atom
Shanghai, CHN
Roboteer: Justin Marple/Bots 'n' Stuff Robotics
Somerville, MA
Roboteer: Alex Hattori/MIT Combat Robotics Club
Cambridge, MA

A three-bot rumble among three bots with three wins each. Only ONE will be invited to the Knockout phase.

Roboteer: Victor Soto
Doral, FL
Roboteer: Al Kindle
Edison, NJ

A loss to DeathRoll kept Rotator out of the top ranks for the tournament. Now the Floridian is looking to take it out on Blacksmith.

Son of Whyachi
Roboteer: Luke Ewert/Team Whyachi
Dorcheser, WI
Roboteer: Zach Goff/Caustic Creations
Loveland, CO

The legendary Team Whyachi is up against a relative rookie in the sport. One win will seal his fate for good.

Roboteer: Sam Smith
Roboteer: Marco Antonio Meggiolaro/RioBotz
Rio de Janeiro

The Brazilian basher is on the edge of destruction if they can't rub out the British brawler.


And your Knockout Rounds are set. The Round of 16 begins next week.

  THE STORY SO FAR! The final four alliance of Jackson, Holly, Cliff, and Nicole held as Tommy was voted out unanimously thanks to Michie's manipulating... something we were told that we'd see the fallout from in this hour.

Or, you know... right now. Nicole and Cliff confront Tommy with the accusation that Michie made (a lie). Tommy is justifiably pissed, so Nicole decides to call a meeting, watching Michi and Tommy go at it so she can figure out who's vrooming who. Michie doubles down on accusing Tommy of lying, and Holly... she just sits there.

Nicole starts to see right through Michie's act. She knows Tommy is an actor but in her gut knows he's to be believed. Nicole wants to evict Holly now. Cliff doesn't agree, but he thinks Tommy would take Nicole to the final two instead of him. Michie says to Cliff that he'd go to the end with him over Holly. After finding out they'd keep Tommy, Michie decides to go full napalm. Remember, the jury will eventually see all of this. So congrats, Michie, you just pissed away $500,000.

Meanwhile, Holly promises to Cliff & Nicole that she'll throw the next HOH if they keep her. Michie promises to keep Nicole & Cliff over Holly if he wins the Veto. Nicole knows all of this is wrong, but she's going along to get along. Cliff... is an idiot, agreeing to the plan. And that, my friends, is how Tommy was voted out.

HOH COMPETITION #11: Crash and Turn. Stand on a pedestal suspended from a wire that moved in circles. In the pedestal's path was a foam truck which HouseGuests were slapped with. The HouseGuest who stood on the pedestal the longest won the Head of Household and is guaranteed a spot in the finale.
- WINNER: Nicole Anthony

Right before nominations, Michie and Holly take a moment... and Michie is crushed by the weight of his many many MANY lies to get to this point.  Cliff tells Nicole that he has a final three deal with Michie. Nicole... flabbergasted as she should be... thinks that there's more to it than that. Will she give him the opportunity to play that scenario out?

NOMINATION CEREMONY #11: No surprise here...
- MARKED FOR EVICTION: Jackson Michie, Holly Allen

But all that matters is the Veto.

ROUND 1 Categories: The Backyard, Just Desserts, Medicine Cabinet, Tech

The Bling Babes pick Tech to start - What built-in technology helps the Roomba navigate your home: a) lasers b) sonar c) infrared sensors? They all pick C... and they're right to lead, 90-40.

ROUND 2 Categories: Business, CArs, The Doctor's Office, The Law

Going into the final question for the Estradas, the Bling Babes lead, 110-40. The question is in the Law - When appearing in small claims court, the New York City Bar Association recommends you do which of the following: a) Bring two copies of all documents b) Avoid settling c) Remain seated at all times? They say A... and take the lead, 200-110.

WRITE-IN ROUND: Schools, Music, Drinks, Sports

- Bling Babes: SPORTS - If you add the number of points in an NFL field goal, the number of runs in an MLB grand slam, and the number of goals in an NHL hat trick, what's the total? They say 9... to the Estradas who have 8. It's 10 (3 points + 4 runs + 3 goals).

Time to wrap up Teacher's Week!

The $1,000 Tossup is EVENT. Donny Brenner from NY solves FIELD TRIP TO THE ZOO. He is a 7 yr language teacher at PS 180 in Brooklyn. He is engaged to Tim and loves to travel. Jessica Jordan from Franklinville, NY is a 10th grade Earth Science Teacher. She is married with an 11 yr old daughter and is a co-leader of her girl scout troop. Elaine Gwynn from New Castle, IN is a physics/chemistry teacher. She is married for 40 years with 2 kids and 4 grandchildren.

The $2,000 Tossup is FOOD & DRINK. Donny has $3,000 with WARM HOMEMADE BREAD. We add this to the wheel - a World Strides Trip to London worth $9,800. It's our crossword round with the clue of PARTS OF SPEECH. There are four words that fit the clue. He picks up the WC with 3 $500 R's, dominates and solves VERB NOUN ADVERB INTERJECTION for $5,400. It's been all Donny so far with $8,400 in cash and the WC. We move on to....

The Aspercreme Ultimate Mystery round which is started by Jessica who wants her shot to play. It's PHRASE. She Bankrupts. So does Elaine. Donny loses $2,350 and the WC on Bankrupt. Jessica hits the MDW with 2 H's. She also passes on the $3,000 mystery round wedge risk(good call, it was Bankrupt.) Jessica loses $2,750 and the MDW on Bankrupt. This has been a rough round. Elaine hits a $500 Free Play B but loses $2,050 on Bankrupt. Donny hits Lose a Turn. Jessica saves us by solving I WAS ABSENT THE DAY YOU SAID THAT for $2,800. We move on to the next round and hope to put this Bankrupt-a-palooza behind us. It is...

The Prize Puzzle/Express Wedge round which is started by Elaine. It's LIVING THINGS. She hits Lose a Turn. Donny TURTLES AND STARFISH for $1,750 and a trip to see them in their natural habitat - Turks and Caicos! It's a stay at the Somerset on Grace Bay worth $10,113! He has $20,263 in cash and prizes!

The third tossup round is our new wrinkle in Season 37. It's called the TRIPLE TOSSUP. We have three tossup puzzles and each will be in the same category. All three players are eligible. Each puzzle is worth $2,000. The person who gets the third puzzle will start the next round. The category is THING. Jessica has $2,000 with MANUAL TYPEWRITER, another $2,000 with ANSWERING MACHINE and Donny starts the third round with $2,000 and FLOPPY DISK. Jessica has $6,800. Donny has $22,263 and starts WHAT ARE YOU DOING? He misses. Jessica hits Lose a Turn and then we go into a $1,650 a letter FINAL SPIN. Donny seals his win with TAKING A VIRTUAL TOUR for $5,450. He is going to the bonus round with a dominating $27,713 in cash and prizes including his stay in the Turks and Caicos. Jessica leaves with $6,800 in cash. Elaine becomes the first gooseegg victim of the 2019-2020 season and leaves with the $1,000 consolation prize.

The pre bonus round total is $35,513. Donny picks PEOPLE over THINGS and PHRASE.

Donny lands on the ** wedge. With the RSTLNE and his choices of D M P O we have:

_ _ D _ E S
_ N D/ _ _ R _ E S

The verdict is in. GUILTY of not solving JUDGES AND JURIES. The sentence- not winning our new house minimum of $37,000! He does leave with $27,713 in cash and prizes!
