JEOPARDY! ROUND: States by City
Trash-Talking, The 1860s, Biblical Big Screen, Up on Mt. Lushmore,
Running a Hotel, Br-Exit
Cheryl starts with $200 Biblical Big
Screen. Tanner finds the Daily Double under $800 The 1860s. He
bets it all on this: in 1867 this microbiologist was appointed
professor of chemistry at the Sorbonnne. He blanks on Louis
Pasteur, dropping him to zero. He recovers to $4200 to tie Cheryl.
Eli has $3800 and the first pick in...
DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Castles, Short & Sweet, Books, On TV Now,
Composers, Know Your Scales
...by reverse-sweeping On TV Now.
Tanner finds the first Daily Double under $1200 Books. He fronts
$3000 on this: Oscar-nominated, a 2015 film was based on this best
bestseller about Eilis, a young Irish immigrant in NYC in the
1950s. He blanks again on "Brooklyn", dropping him to $2400.
Cheryl finds the other under $1200 Know Your Scales. She bets

this group founded by Jean Nidetch. "What is Weight Watchers?"
RIGHT for $12,400! She leads with $11,600 going into the final
against Eli's $9400 and Tanner's $2000.
FINAL JEOPARDY! in "European Countries": once the center

We're kicking off Friday at the

Autumn (mechanic in the military/Rosie the Riveter), and Michael
("A Venetian Carnivale goer"). They're going to DRAW STRAWS. Demi
picks the red ($7), Autumn the green ($2), and Michael the blue
($5). Will Demi keep her straw or trade for Curtain #2? She keeps
her straw and gives up a ton of TVs. She wins... $7100 CASH MONEY!
Will Autumn keep her straw or go for the Box? She picks the box,
giving up $250. In the box... a trip to Napa (3n @ Craftsman Inn)!
Will Michael keep his straw or take Curtain #1? He takes the
Curtain, giving up $50 for a Sea-Doo!
Vanessa & Lauren (twins & high school English teachers)... have to
decide who'll be the first person in the next deal. It's Lauren,
and it's Dianna (Mrs. Potato Head) playing for a NISSAN SENTRA S
WORTH $18,645! All they have to do is spell NISSAN. Eight numbers,
each has a letter or two Zonks. Drawing envelopes to see who goes
first. Lauren gets $100 and the honor, while Dianna gets $50.
Lauren picks 5... I! Dianna picks 7... ZONK. She does keep the
$50. Lauren picks 3 over $300... S! $500? No, she wants the 6...
A! $1000? No, she wants the... $1300? No, she wants the 8... Game
Abelardo ("Abey", a luau guy & 22-year Army vet) gets three
envelopes: 16,241 Romanian luau, 16,241 Romanian mahi, and 16,241
Romanian lei. Only one of those is filled with Romanian money.
It's worth $4000. He picks the lei... but will he trade his choice
for a laptop? He stays with the lei... Pay. THAT man. HIS money!
Next deal involves Irene (bumblebee/online telecom businesslady)
and a Big Box that may cause drowsiness. She can take that or
Curtain #1. She picks the Curtain, passing on the bedroom she
wanted... a teeny, weeny little one (ZONK!)... with a hidden
piggybank filled with $500. Behind the Curtain... a new kitchen
with small appliances!
The JUKEBOX deal is out for Rory (onesie), getting Curtain #2. He
picks CD #2, and it's modern country. The clues: "something three
times", "HD it", and "TV can be my new religion". Sounds like
three TVs. Will he pick the curtain or the money behind the CD? He
picks the curtain, and $700 buys him THREE HDTVs! Tina (baker)
gets Curtain #3 and her choice of CDs. She picks #3 and gets...
Vienna Boys Choir. The clues: "a trip", "an uphill climb",
"lactose", and "holy". Will she pick the curtain or the money. She
picks the money and misses a trip to the Swiss Cheese Alps (ZONK!).
Pay her... $2000!
The "Black Romanian" heckler from earlier, Jeffrey (Mr. T/clinical
trial manager), gets to play next for a TOYOTA COROLLA WORTH
$19,570 in GO BIG OR GO HOME.
- 1 - Advance to $250
- 3 - Advance to $1000 ($1250)
- 1 - Advance to $250 ($1500)
- 4 - Advance to $500 ($2000)
- 2 - Advance to Curtain 1... Beach gear with roller skates,
skateboard, picnic package, and surfboards ($2633, $4633 total)...
It's the last one before the Big one, and it goes to Dalia &
Jeffrey (23 years together, she's a scarecrow, he's a disco guy).
Dalia gets a choice between $700 and a Red Box. She picks the box
and gets a diamond necklace. Jeffrey gets a choice between $1000
and a Green Box. He picks the box and gets an outdoor kitchen.
Will they trade $5274 worth of prizes for the Big Box? They will
keep the sure thing, and they forego... a trip to the Dominican
Republic (5n @ Viva Wyndham V Samana) worth $7290. That would've
given them the honor for...
... THE BIG DEAL OF THE DAY WORTH $24,730! Rory is trading in his
TVs for a Door! He picks Door #2. Behind Door #3... a new living
room worth $8378. Behind HIS door... a trip to New Orleans (4n @
Maison Dupuy Hotel) worth $3539. The Big Deal was behind the Big
One: a JEEP COMPASS SPORT!
