Shekinah had won the "cut for control".

HI-LO Q1/5: (100 bridesmaids) At the last wedding you were in, did you have to pay for your bridesmaid's dress? (How many curse the penny-pinching bride for leaving them with the bill?)
Shekinah says 73.  Ahmanise says higher.

  A win tonight to round out Ken's first week as host will put Lucy in the tournament talk.

Lucy Ricketts
orig. Atlanta


Jennifer Linde
associate professor

Gautham Nagesh
orig. Jackson, MI

JEOPARDY! ROUND: It's a Long Story, Take Note, 3-Letter "D" Words, The Name Is the TV Title, Fortify Yourself, All Kinds of Wine.

Lucy starts with $200 The Name Is The TV Title. At the TV timeout, Jennifer leads with $3200 to $1600 for Gautham. Lucy has half over still, $800.

Lucy finds the Daily Double under $600 Fortify Yourself. She wagers $2000 on this: in 1835 Mexican General Martin Perfecto de Cos fortified this mission in San Antonio but soon had to surrender it. "What is the Alamo?" RIGHT for $6400! She ends with $6600 to $5200 for Jennifer. Gautham on $2400 gets the first clue in....

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Bygone Abbrev., US Cities, Along for the Ride, Vocabulary, Hodgepodge, Entertaining Brothers

... with $2000 US Cities. Lucy finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Along for the Ride. She bets $4000 on this: this cartographer set out to explore the Mississippi in birchbark canoes with Jacques Marquette in 1673. "Who is Louis Joliet?" That's right... but La Salle drops her to $10,600. Gautham finds the other under $1600 Vocabulary. He wagers $3199 on this: the Cambridge Dictionary insists that "we imply something by what we say. We" do this "from what somebody else says." "What is infer?" That's right... but act drops him to a dollar. He ends up with $1201 at the end of the round with Jennifer on $12,400 and Lucy in the lead with $18,200.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Queen Elizabeth II": of the last 12 sitting US presidents, the only one Elizabeth never met; she had her youngest child 3 months into his presidency. Correct response: who is Lyndon Johnson?

Jennifer is the only one who gets it right to win $24,800. Lucy leaves with $81,499.

We end the week at the marketplace with two people, Veatta the Unicorn(Marketing Manager) and Laura the Sunflower Pot(retired mother of 4), playing for a 2021 Hyundai Elantra Sedan worth $20,685! Here's how the game works. We have 8 numbers on stage. 6 of them are hiding the letters that spell WINNER. 2 have zonks. The last trader to spell WINNER without hitting a zonk wins the Hyundai. Veatta picks the gold envelope first and will go first because she found the $100 bill to Laura's $50 in the silver envelope. Veatta picks 2 and it's the I. Laura picks 5. It's the E. Veatta passes on $500 to pick 7 and she is OUT. The 1st zonk makes her sit down with $100. Laura passes on $600 and picks 4. It's the N. The board is now _ I _ N E _ . Laura passes on $1,000 and picks 1 and it's the R. We have 3, 6 and 8 left. One has the zonk and other two have W and the other N. Laura is offered $2,000 and passes on it. Laura picks 8 and she ZONKS out. They pulled the next to each other trick again. 3 was W and 6 was N. Laura leaves with $50.

Danny the Chili Pepper(work in sales - new dad) has $800. He can keep the cash or take the small box. Danny takes the box and wins a trip to Las Vegas for 4N at the Plaza Hotel and Casino worth $3,856! Joya(as a member of Color Me Badd - starting Grad Student in Clinical sychology). She can take $800 and Danny's $800 for $1,600 OR she can take Curtain 1. She keeps the $1,600 and passes on a game room including a 4 player Pac-Man Battle Royale Game, 2 years of Deep River Snacks and a 65" 4K HDTV worth $7,948! Let's go to an at-homie Deon. He can take $800 or the LMAD Envelope. Deon takes the envelope and wins a BLURRED PICTURE OF TIFFANY COYNE(ZONK)!

Dahab the Somalian(raised in Syria in LA for one year - model) is playing the Blank Check Game and hopes to make the highest amount possible(like it was done on the last time it was played). We have four colored rectangles placed in this order(red/yellow/blue/green). Hidden beneath the colored rectangles are numbers from 0-9. Dahab places the rectangles in this order on the check - Red/green/Yellow/Blue. We show the check to Dahab from right to left leaving the first number covered - $ _  0 3 2. Dahab keeps the check and passes on Curtain 3 which was a trip to Savannah Georgia for a 3N Culinary retreat worth $5,050! Dahab wins $32 as the first number was 0. The max check was $3,200. Dahab gets it bumped up to $100.

Jason who is being eaten by a Crocodile has the small box with the clue of #selfie or Curtain 2 which has no clue. He takes Curtain 2 and passes on a Nikon DSLR Camera, stabilizing camera and photography classes along with $2,000 in cash! That was worth $5,469! Jason wins a CHICKEN AND ELEPHANT ON A SEESAW(ZONK)! Charlene the Tropical Lady(physical therapist assistant) and Tiffany runs this deal. It's time for a song battle between Wayne and Jonathan. Wayne has the LMAD Envelope and Jonathan has the small box. They will both sing about their prizes and then Charlene will choose. It is in the style of hip hop/R&B/country. She picks the Big Box from Jonathan. Wayne had a trip to PLANET ZONK!(ZONK). I think Charlene did better with the Big Box. She wins a home theater from TCL including 65" 4K Smart TV/sound system/2 TCL Smartphones and snacks from Ka-Pop for a year. Tiffany changes the channel and the picture changes from the LMAD Logo to a picture of a 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage! Her deal is worth $19,292!

Victoria wearing the Jet Pack(masters program in Barcelona and manager of a meat plant) is playing for a trip to Bermuda for 6N at the Pompano Beach Club worth $10,206! It's the ODD/EVEN GAME. Victoria will roll a single die down the ramp. She is hoping to get odd numbers(1/3/5) over even numbers(2/4/6). If Victoria rolls 4 odd numbers before 4 even numbers, she is going to Bermuda. If she rolls even numbers first, she gets NOTHING. Her first roll is 4(ZONK), next is 4(ZONK). Victoria passes on $500 to roll 3(TRIP). She passes on $400 to roll 2(ZONK). Victoria takes $300 to stop!

Last deal of the week involves Omar/Susan(banana/Ice Cream - together 7 years). They have $1,000 and can double their money through a drawing game. Omar will have 15 second to draw the word that Wayne shows him. Susan will have back turned so that she doesn't see what the word or picture is. She will have ONE guess and if she does guess it, they will double their money to $2,000. Susan turns around and they have $2,000 with MICROWAVE. Will they keep their cash or take the small box? They take the box and win a pair of Frederique Constant Watches and a $2,000 Nordstrom GC worth $5,845!

Who trades for a shot at $23,240? Omar/Susan trade their watches and shopping Spree!

They pick 2. 3 was an outdoor kitchen from Bull and online cooking classes from Skill Success! That was worth $9,828! Omar/Susan win a fitness package including Hoist Gym, Kettlebell set and 310 Nutrition Package worth $4,620! 1 was the Big Deal and it was a 2021 Kia Seltos SUV worth $23,240!

Last week, a twist forced Elliott with 2 Ts back into the competition as she competed with the "Winner's Circle" of Queens - Gottmik, Kandy Muse, LaLa Ri, Olivia Lux, Symone, and Tina Burner in the season's first set of challenges. While Symone beat Olivia Lux in a Lip Sync, we're left to wonder... what became of the "Pork Chop Queens" - Denali, Joey Jay, Kahmora Hall, Rosé, Tamisha Iman, and Utica Queen.

MINI-CHALLENGE #2: All me to reintroduce myself... You have to show off two runway ready looks in two different categories: "Lady" ... and the "Vamp".

The running joke of the night? It takes Kahmora so long to get ready that by the time production had to step in to get the queens on stage, she was still without pads, heels, wig, or clothes.

Back in the Werk Room, we find out that Tamisha has three children that are older than any of the contestants.

MAXI-CHALLENGE #2: Phenomenon. Much like the Winner's Circle last week, you're going to create a verse and choregraphy for a group performance of Ru's song "Phenomenon."

Denali took charge as the leader and once Rosé & Joey added their two cents, it became a mess. Tamisha was completely flummoxed, and the rest of the group were concerned by Kahmora's two left feet. For what it's worth, she's finally able to be ready on time.

Time for the challenge. Joining Ru on the judges panel this week are Ross, Michelle, and special guest judge, the host of "Nailed It!" on Netflix, Nicole Byer.

RUNWAY #2: We're Here, We're Sheer, Get Used To It! No explanation needed.
- TOP 2: Denali, Rosé.

Another non-elimination leg of this Drag Race.

LIP SYNC FOR THE WIN#2: Denali vs. Rosé. The winner will get a cash tip of $5000.  The song... "If You Seek Amy" by Britney Spears.
- WINNER: Denali!

Next time, the queens come together as one... and someone's finally getting eliminated.
