*totals are based on the MSRP of the prizes and rounded to the nearest dollar.


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... RIGHT!

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.

Dylan & Becca
dating couple
Rio & Shannon
friends (Rio's a minister)
Scott Wolf
"Perception" & "Nightshift"
David Alan Grier
"Bad Teacher"

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 Word" (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.

  Today's flight is going to take us 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 sunglasses. You'll have three chances within the 60 seconds. The question: order the following car brands from least expensive to most based on prices found at 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, Lambo.

DO YOU READ ME?: April Ollander & her friend Tiffany have to convey 10 names for $20 a name. Get 12, they're going to Beecher's Mad House at the MGM Grand with table service. Category: things you'd find at a movie theater. April gets 8 out of 10 for $160. Tiffany gets things you'd find on a sandwich... getting all 10 for $360 total and VIP table service!

We're getting ready to land this plane, but not before the two big winners of the day, April & Tiffany and Riley play the BIG DEAL for 3 nights at the Palms.

RILEY: K-2-J-4-10-3-K-Q-4-9-5-6-K-9-Q (14)
APRIL & TIFFANY: Q-3-5-7-5 (4)

And Riley is the big winner of the Big Deal, and he's going to the Palms as soon as this thing lands... which is, oh, right about... now.

  It's a brand new beginning for FGN, with Connect 4 Basketball, Operation, Jenga, Yahtzee, Battleship, and a family by the name of Lamas.

First, though, Dason, Garron, Drasoni & Dion shooting off against Rey, Amaliel, Arius & Deon in Connect 4 Basketball. Drasoni wins it for Dason's family, and they get a Fat Cat 3-in-1 game table & Viper 797 electronic dartboard. Rey's family ends up with $100.

Next up, Vivian, William, Lillian & James operate on Operation. With the one free roll and one earned from a chip off of James' shoulder, Vivian's family wins $800.

Next up, Augie, Tiffni &, Steve play against Landon, Ryan & Chantel in Jenga. Augie's family pulls 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.

Time for Star Time. Are you ready for Star Time?! Here's Lorenzo Lamas & his daughters Isabella, Victoria & Alexandra, all playing for $10,000 for the Boot Campaign (helping returning service members) in Yahtzee. The 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 for Battleship with Gracie, Riley & Nikki facing off against Jaela, Jaeda & Deshaunda. Gracie's family strikes first blood and end up with a two-space cruiser to win a pair of Sbykes & an ARDrone 2.0. Gracie's family wins $100.

Now the question of the night: who has the winning combination that will open the Monopoly Community Chest? It's REY'S family! They're going to the Monopoly Crazy Cash Machine!

Row 1: Horse - $800
Row 2: Cannon - GO TO JAIL. But they do have $900. The Win card was the Thimble.

  John is loving it this week as he flirts with three games to end it..
John Campbell
Weymouth, MA
romance novelist
Alexander Persaud
orig. Dubuque, IA
PhD student in economics
Sarah Horvitz

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.

Michael Werrell

Stella Parks
Lexington, KY
pastry chef,

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 Raspberry Mousse
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.

  Josh Tenney (Orem, UT) continues from yesterday with $13,100 through 4 questions, and with ATA remaining.

With the $1,000 from the 5th, he has $14,100 when this appears...

Which pop singer's first name was inspired by her mother's maiden name?
A: Beyonce Knowles
B: Miley Cyrus
C: Mariah Carey
D: Taylor Swift

Josh knows about all four of them. He sees Taylor as a common last name, so he goes with D... but it's A! Ouch. As a result, he leaves with $1,000.

Kyle LaRose (Attleboro, MA)
His grandmother (in the audience beside the Plus One) is very proud of him for getting onto the show.
(+1): ???

He asks the audience on the 2nd question, and gets $7,000 from it! He jumps the 4th, which had just $500. His total sits at $42,000 heading into this...

According to the U.S. Mint, when settling a dispute with a coin flip, instead of saying "heads or tails," you could use what more technical phrase?
A: "Frontage or Following?"
B: "Anterior or Posterior?"
C: "Portrait or Scene?"
D: "Obverse or Reverse?"

After some consideration, Kyle says C... but it's D! He also leaves with $1,000.

Tonya Matthews-Wall (Raleigh, NC)
(+1): ???

With audience help on the 2nd question, she gets $500 from it. Her total is $5,500 when she sees this...

Costing about $9000 each, IKEA famously sells what energy-producing products in their U.K. stores?
A: Wind turbines
B: Gasoline generators
C: Solar panels
D: Nuclear reactors

Tonya decides to guess A... but it's C! She leaves with $1,000 as well.

With little time left, Tromeo Brownfield (Brooklyn, NY) is picked from the audience to play for $1,000...

Considered one of the hardest tests of its kind, the Master Sommelier Diploma Exam measures people's knowledge of what?
A: Cheese
B: Perfume
C: Wine
D: Sushi

Tromeo locks in C... and he's right for $1,000!
