*totals are based on the MSRP of the prizes and rounded to the nearest dollar.
All week, you've been hearing that it was going to happen on Friday. Well, it's Friday. And you're going to see it happen right now. But first.. Mia Garitano-Rivera, Marquise Bias, Robyn Parker, and Gary Klc bid on Kate Spade designer accessories. The $1268 package goes to Robyn, who will walk the Golden Road, where a humble 69c pack of Market Pantry taco seasoning can turn into a spin bike, a hot tub, and - at the end of the Golden Road - a $73,000+ JAGUAR F-TYPE CONVERTIBLE! The spin bike... $_82. She goes with 6... GOOD! The hot tub: $5_13. She picks out the 8... and we're PLAYING FOR THE JAG! The car is $73,_45. She goes with 1... But it was 8.

Mia picks up $500 from a perfect bid on a $500 pair of HD camcorders! Next up, a Sea-Doo in Double Price. It's either $6284 or $5021. She takes $5021... but it was $6284.

Gary wins a $1100 pair of Samsung Galaxy Tabs with covers (win one NOW at Now, the moment you've been waiting for... a grill, a margarita machine... and an outdoor patio set in the new hotness, the new flavor of CLOCK GAME!

I know what you're saying... WHAT?! Game remains the same, however, there is no $1000 bonus as of this playing that is mentioned on screen. And as you saw in the video above, Gary wins the $849 grill in 12 seconds and the $760 margarita maker in another 4 to win the patio set! And since there is not flashing $1000 bonus graphic, it's safe to assume that it's been discontinues unless we are told otherwise.

But Mia would win at the Wheel. Meanwhile, Nasim Saeidian wins a $2695 pool table and a shot at Spain (6n in Alicante) with tickets to the Volvo Ocean Race in Pick-a-Pair. She picks Kraft grated parmesan and Red Bull. The cheese... $5.49. The Red Bull... $2.99. She keeps the Red Bull... and trades for the Libman sponge... $3.99. She needed to pick the King Oscar sardines.

Marquise finally gets off the schneid with a $650 kitchen cart with microwave. Next is the rest of the kitchen in Flip Flop. The price is not $6574. He flops to $6547... WINNER!

Bryce Polizzi wraps it up with $1260 in tools. Can he use those on a Hyundai Veloster? Only if he wins Gas Money.


$23,949... $1000. $19,725... $2000. $22,460... the car.

Nasim meets Mia in the Showcase. First up, play it loud with an HDTV, a Harley, and a trip to Singapore (6n, Singapore Marriott). Top winner Nasim passees, and Mia bids $21,500. Nasim could say "Ciao!" to Italia on a trip to Rome (6n, Hotel Atlante Garden) and a Fiat 500L Pop. She bids $27,000. Actual price: $32,971, a difference of $5971. Actual price of Mia's Showcase... $24,557! She wins with a difference of $3057, giving her $25,557!

Joey & Helen
sisters from Concord, CA
Maria & Jason
married couple
Tom Arnold
Lisa Kudrow
"The Comeback"

Round 1: Joey & Helen go with "I'll Host the Party on Saturday!" (famous folks who have hosted "Saturday Night Live"), getting three for $300. Maria & Jason pick up "I Don't Like My Real Name!" (famous folks who have changed their name), getting four for $400.

Round 2: As we swap stars, Maria gives on "A Little R&R" (famous names with the initials RR), getting five for $1000, $1400 total. Joey gives on "Start Your Engines" (famous vehicles), getting three for $600 more, $900 total.

In the race to $3000, we have "It's Mr. or Mrs. to You!" (famous for being called Mr., Mrs., or Miss). The $800 answer will give someone the game. And Mr. Right... is right for Joey & Helen, $3500 to $2400!

... which is theirs to keep, but now let's see if they can turn that into $20,000 in the final round. Helen gets three of the final 10, leaving Joey to get the final seven in 30 seconds. They could've said "tennis player" or "defeated Bobby Riggs" or "Michael Jackson song..." for Billie Jean King... but they run out of time.

In the nightcap (featuring Luke Perry & Kathy Najimy), married couple Jami & Scott and BFFs from high school Katie & Marie play. Jami & Scott win out $3200 to $2200, but gave an illegal clue in the Bonus ("Metal" for Metallica), leaving them with the cash won in the main game.

The Game Plane

The Game Plane is now boarding. And for the second time this season, so we can safely assume that Allegiant Air hasn't cancelled this flight yet. Speaking of flights, this week's is taking us from Allentown, PA to Orlando.

FACE-OFF: Leeann (registered nurse) vs. Steve (funeral director). It's a first-to-five affair for a four-pack to Legoland Florida. Not only are you playing for yourselves, you're playing for your side of the plane. The winning side, be it the ABC (Leeann) or the DEF (Steve) will get tickets to "Drip: The Show". The sudden death question...

In which boardgame are you attempting to fill in 6 wedges into a plastic pie?: a) Monopoly b) Trivial Pursuit c) Candyland? Leeann buzzes with C... Steve, the right answer, please? "A, Trivial Pursuit!" ... Technically, he's right. So they're going to give it to him!

A little turbulence doesn't stop the Game Plane, We just play with the person being forced to sit next to us. That's Jackie, and the game is LANDING LETTERS. Unscramble the letters, but do it quickly, because you'll lose $10 for every second it takes to solve it. The category: Find It In Florida. MIAMI, DISNEY, ORANGES, and SUNSHINE give her $210. BUT... will she keep the cash OR go double or nothing? She's keeping the money! Had she gone for it... UNIVERSAL would be the word, and she would've gotten it.

THE PLANE TRUTH: Bonnie (consultant from Nazareth, PA) vs. Mike (CPA from Scranton, PA). Simple game: is the story Mark is about to tell believable or not? Best of 8 wins a four-pack helicopter tour from Air Florida. And eight lucky passengers will also win a family four-pack to Ripley's Believe It or Not. Last one...

Rock guitarist Eric Clapton's real last name is Clapp. Mike says Believe It. Bonnie says Not. Mike... is a winner! Bonnie leaves with a four-pack to Ripley's.

We're getting ready to land this plane, but not before the two big winners of the day, Mike the CPA and Steve the funeral director, play the death-and-taxes BIG DEAL. It's Card Sharks, and the player who makes it further down the line wins a week stay at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotel.

STEVEN: K-3-5-6-2 (four)
MICHAEL & VALERIE (girlfriend): 10-4-Q-10-3 (WINNER!)

And the show is on final descent until next week.

  Catherine is looking to do what Bill Cossen couldn't do last week, go out a four-timer.
Catherine Hardee
Kinston, NC
hotel front desk clerk & recent college graduate
Tod Macofsky
West Los Angeles, CA
massage therapist
Alan Lange
Sarasota, FL

Catherine starts by sweeping Fix the Car (Name) and finding the Daily Double under $600 General Science. She fronts $2000 on this: an abnormal fear of water, it's also another name for rabies. "What is hydrophobia?" RIGHT for $8000! At the half, she is up $9800 to Tod's $4200. Alan has $4000 and the board to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 & the Category of Geography, where he finds the first Daily Double under $1200. He bets $3500 on this: the greatest north-south distance of this South American country is 2731 miles; east-west, 2684. "What is Brazil?" RIGHT for $8700! Alan finds the other under $1600 Texas, Hold'em. He bets $1000, protecting his lead, on this: in 1966, an appeals court reversed the murder conviction of this Dallas inmate, but he died in January 1967. "Who is Jack Ruby?" RIGHT for $16,900! He ends the round with $18,900 to Catherine's $18,200. Tod can play spoiler with $6600.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Famous Americans": in 1936 at age 79, he published an article in Esquire in which he described how to pick a jury. Correct response: who was Clarence Darrow?

Everyone gets it right. Catherine doubles... but Alan bets enough to tie. BOTH are coming back on Monday, Alan with $36,400, and Catherine with $95,201!

  Glenn Packman (Norwalk, CT)
He works in real estate, and he hopes to win enough to build his own dream house.
(+1): His friend, David

His friend helps him out with the 2nd question, and that adds $500 to his bank. He gets help from the audience on the 5th, but the results are a little too close for him, so he jumps it and the $3,000 it had. He has $27,500 when he faces this...

Now known for hits like 2014's "Empire," who was reportedly told by her high school music teacher that she sounded like a goat?
A: P!nk
B: Shakira
C: Rihanna
D: Britney Spears

Glenn isn't up on current music. He does have a guess, but he ends up walking with $13,750! The answer is B.

Natalie Igo-Poranski (Conroe, TX)
After 25 years of trying, she recently graduated from college.
(+1): Her friend, Carrie

He asks the audience on the 2nd question, and gets $500 with that help. She brings in her Plus One on the 4th, but Carrie isn't sure, either, so that question and its $1,000 are jumped. She then sees this with $40,500...

Wife of Civil War general Robert E. Lee, Mary Custis was the great-granddaughter of what historic woman?
A: Martha Washington
B: Betsy Ross
C: Pocahontas
D: Molly Pitcher

Natalie simply doesn't know, so she walks with $20,250! As for the answer, it's A.

In the nightcap, Steven Meltzer (New Rochelle, NY) walks away with $30,750 when he and his Plus One can't answer this:

According to AMC, the cat stroked by what notorious movie character was actually a stray the director found wandering on the set?

D: Dolores Umbridge
