Cheryl Guy

electrical engineer
Tanner Hesse

grad student & Navy Reserve officer

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 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 $3000 on this: Conair makes a bathroom scale bearing the name of 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 of an empire, it didn't exist as an independent nation from 1938 to 1955. Correct response: what is Austria?

No one came up with it, but Eli, who had to run the treadmill to catch the program, had enough to win $6227. Cheryl leaves with $22,600.

We're kicking off Friday at the Marketplace with three: Demi (data entry specialist/magician), 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 over.

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)... STOP!

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!

Top winner John bids $27,500. Micah gets a game room with CD/MP3 jukebox, arcade basketball, table tennis, & Ms. Pac-Man/Galaga cabinet arcade game... and a 2017 Chevy Camaro. He bids $30,000. Actual price: $34,340, a difference of $4340. Actual price of John's Showcase.. $33,777, a difference of $6277, and Micah gets the W with $35,220!

GAME 3: DANNY THOMPSON: He holds the national land speed record, breaking the record set by his father.
