Curtis Reed
big game fan
Brook Snell
stay-at-home mom
Aaron Rodgers
Super Bowl champion QB for the Green Bay Packers
Erin Andrews
"Dancing with the Stars"

GAME 1: Deez Knits; Tall, Dark, and Awesomel Wiki Wiki What?!, Go Shortie!, Off to a Rocky Start; Oh, Yes! Oh, Yes! Oh No!

Curtis & Aaron sweep "Deez Knits" (things associated with knitting). Going into the last round, we're tied at 11. Curtis has the monitor for "Oh, Yes! Oh, Yes! Oh, No!" (exciting things that can occasionally be disappointing). He & Aaron get 6 after Curtis said "day" for "you were born on this day" for 17. Erin & Brook need to sweep "Off to a Rocky Start" (words that begin with the sound "yo"). Yogurt... yo-yo... yolk... Yoda... yodel... yoga... Yoko is a win, 18-17!

WINNERS' CIRCLE for $50,000: Brook gives.
- Famous Rappers - $1000
- Parts of a Cow - $1500
- "What a Magician Might Say" - $2000
- Types of Peppers - $3000
- Things That Make You Laugh - PASS
- Bubbly Things - $5000
- Things That Make You Laugh - TIME OUT. But she gets $12,500. If she gets back, she's playing for $100,000. Let's swap the partners!

GAME 2: Wrong Hole!, At Sixes and Sevens, Haywatch, Y'all Ready for This?, Good Vibrations, All That and Dim Sum

Erin & Curtis pick the Mystery 7 right away under "Good Vibrations" for a trip to the Caribbean. They get a hand, salt, a leg, a rattle, a martini, and run out of time on tambourine (Erin thought it was "trampoline"). Those were things people shake. Going into round 3, Erin & Curtis trail, 12-11, as Curtis gets the monitor for "Y'all Ready for This?" (things associated with the American South). They need one to tie. They get two. Aaron & Brook need one to tie, two to win in "All That and Dim Sum" (things you might see at a Chinese restaurant). They get the two - chopsticks and menu - to win, 14-13.

WINNERS' CIRCLE for $100,000: Brook gives again.
- Dinosaurs - $1000
- "What a Baby Might Say" - $1500
- People in a Courtroom - $2000
- Things on a Pool Table (Billiards) - $3000
- Famous Jennifers - $4000
- People Who Are Bald - WIN! That's a total of $112,500!

(C-Note: again, not to pick nits, but "prehistoric animals" was descriptive, not listing. I would've buzzed that)

Second round coming...

Jacob Pfeffer
works in real estate
Patti Bertolino
New Jersey
adventurous mother of two
Italia Ricci
"Designated Survivor"
Robbie Amell
"The Flash"

FUN FACT: Italia and Robbie are married to each other.

GAME 1: Awww, Yeah; Appy House; A Moment of Science, Please; That's How Eye Roll; Oh, Snap!; Girls Just Want to Have Funyuns.

Italia & Jacob begin by running "Oh, Snap!" (people and things that can't snap their fingers) and "That's How Eye Roll" (people and things you might roll your eyes at). Going into the final subjects, Patti & Robbie trail, 14-12. Patti gives on "Girls Just Want to Have Funyuns" (things you might find in a vending machine), needing two to stay alive. They get all seven. So Jacob & Italia need five to tie, six to win on "A Moment of Science, Please" (topics a scientist likely knows more about than you). Gravity... fossils... plants... an eclipse... hurricane... and magnets win, 20-19!

WINNERS' CIRCLE for $50,000: Jacob gives
- Months - $1000
- Parts of a Bird - $1500
- Types of Condiments - $2000
- "What a Comedian Might Say" (Comic) - $3000
- Movie Directors - $4000
- Things That Are Spoiled - WIN! If Jacob wins the next game with Robbie, he's playing for a total of $150,000! Meanwhile, Italia is laughing all the way to the bank.

GAME 2: Melanious, Put A Ringo On It, Mad Rhymes, Exsqueeze Me, Custardy Battle; Monogamy, Shmonogamy.

Mystery 7 in play again. Italia & Patti sweep "Custardy Battle" (foods you might put in a pie). The Mystery 7 is "Mad Rhymes" for a Disney Cruise of the Bahamas. They get bad, ad, glad, iPad, Brad, fad, and run out of time there. These were all words that rhyme with "mad". They make up for it by running "Put a Ringo On It" (first names of Rock & Roll Hall of Famers) to make it 13-10 going into the third pass. Patti gives on "Exsqueeze Me" (things you might squeeze), needing 3 to tie. They get all 7, meaning Jacob needs five to win on "Melanious" (things associated with Melania Trump). Donald.. Mother... First Lady... model... and speech win, 18-17!

WINNERS' CIRCLE for $100,000: Jacob gives.
- Parts of Your Leg - $1000
- Kinds of Fish - $1500
- "What a Babysitter Might Say" - $2000
- Types of Crackers - $3000
- Things in a Bar - $4000
- Things That Are Perky - $150,000 on "pointy breasts!"

  Two big paydays for Lisa. Hopefully Friday is JUST as big, if not bigger.
Lisa Evans
Easthampton, MA
office manager
Pat McNamee
McLean, VA
Brittany Franckowiak
Laurel, MD
high school biology teacher

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Quick Geography, TV in the Steam, Orange, Scary Reading, "Oop"s, Now You've Stepped In It

Lisa starts with $200 Scary Reading, where she finds the Daily Double under $600. The only one in money - $600 from the first two clues - she bets $500 on this: you know the stuff that makes up 1/4 of the universe but we can't see it? Peter Straub put "A" before it to title this 201 book. "What is 'A Dark Matter'?" RIGHT for $1100! She ends up with $6900 to $5000 for Pat. Brittany has $2000 and the first pick in...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Founding Fathers, The Korean War, 4-Letter Words, American Art, Astronomy, "Center"-tainment.

... with $400 Astronomy. Brittany finds the first Daily Double under $1200 American Art. She wagers $2000 on this: Shepard Fairey's iconic 2008 painting of Barack Obama began as a 60" x 44" collage in his studio & featured this 4-letter word. "What is hope?" That's right for $5600! Lisa finds the other under $1600 The Korean War. With one clue left, she bets $2000 on this: he ordered his country's troops into Korea in October 1950 to protect his 1-year-old Communist regime. "Who is Kim Il-sung?" No, it was Chairman Mao, dropping her to $11,300. She got the money back and ended the round with $13,300 to $12,600 for Pat. Brittany is still in it with $8800.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Books of the 1960s": "Wherever I sat... I would be sitting under the same glass" this, the title of the author's only novel. Correct response: "What is 'The Bell Jar'?"

No one came up with the correct response, but only Pat would hold back to win $7599. Lisa leaves with $64,402.

This is a bit on the complicated side of things, but follow us anyway. Today is the regular season finale of TPIR, but there are still two make-goods to air plus the 4th of July and Back to School specials that will air over the summer. There are currently no planned airdates for the make-goods, so best advice: stay tuned to for details.

In the meantime, we're going to wrap up the 45th anniversary season proper with Francis Valente, Rebecca Calderon, Calvin Ford, and Bridget O'Malley bidding on a pair of paddleboards with accessories. The $1880 paddleboards go to Bridget, who can take those with a water bottle and a set of luggage to Maui (6n @ Ka'anapali Beach Hotel) in Make Your Move.

5 3 2 5 9 2 4 3 1

She goes $31 for the bottle, $532 for the luggage, and $5924 for the trip.... had the luggage and the trip backwards.

Calvin gets a $999 Surface tablet with stylus. He can win a Mini Cooper Hardtop if he knows when That's Too Much! He thinks $23,623 is too much, and that's... not even in the ballpark. It was $26,000, so $26,451 was too much.

Janice Remland goes down and up thanks to a $620 Playstation 4 Guitar Hero package. She can put that in a new living room with 3D 4KTV, kegerator, mini-fridge and $1500 from Postmates if she wins at the ol' Vend-O-Price:

- 7 black cherry Jell-Os
- 5 Del Monte green beans
- 3 Blue Diamond Nut-Thins crackers

She takes the crackers. The Jell-O is $1.99 for $13.93 total. The beans are $2.29 for $11.45 total. The crackers are $2.99 for $8.97 total.

Bridget gets the win at the first Showdown round. Meanwhile, Rebecca scores a $2025 trip to Palm Springs (3n @ Hyatt Palm Springs via limo) and a shot at $3576 designer shoes for him & her, a $1201 MacBook pro, and a $1070 foosball table. One of those is wrong. She goes with the Mac... $2229 is right!

Francis gets off the schneid with a $2149 gas range with cookware. He'll cook up a trip to Germany (6n @ Schloss Elmau Luxury Spa Retreat) if he can beat the Shell Game. He gets chips from a $60 steam iron, an $80 white noise machine, and a $200 juicer. That leaves second from stage left hidden. The ball... second from stage... RIGHT!

Bessie Bray brays her way to a $1245 car stereo. She'll have that installed in a Mazda 3 Sport, and for the last time in the regular season, here's the 45-card Easter egg...

19 45 79
53 31 18
92 86 20

(C-Note: check out the 31).

Middle number: 8. 20.. FRONT! 79... money. 53... money. 86... money. Last pick is 92, and she wins... 310 money. The car was $20,831. (C-Note: told you)

Three-way Spin-Off leads to Bessie winning $1000 on the Big Wheel. First in the Showcase, sunglasses, a Caribbean cruise (11d @ Costa Cruises), and a Hyundai Accent. Top winner Bessie bids $22,500. Bridget gets a pair of smart watches & a smart phone, a trip to San Francisco (5n @ San Francisco Marriott Marquis), and a Jeep Patriot Latitude. She bids $24,000. Actual price: $30,947, a difference of $6947. Actual price of Bessie's Showcase... $24,732 to win with a difference of $2232 and a total of $27,287!

The plan right now? Be back NEXT TUESDAY for the 4th of July Spectacular.

$20,000 ROUND: Ryan & Amanda's BTO Cooler vs. Tracey's Swankey Beverage Tote. Both of these products allow your drink to keep its cool.

The Cash Out button comes.... and goes.

$20,000 ROUND: Helya's Slick Chicks vs. Mary's Chaddeze. Helya Muhammad (New York City) created women's underwear with a clasp on the side for when you really have to go. Mary Fennell (Independence, KY) created boys' underwear with a magnet down front... also for when you really have to go. Here's the Cash Out... and Helya CASHES OUT for $6500.

$50,000 ROUND: Mike's Waffle Iron vs. Michael's Repast Supply Company. Mike Bradford (Pflugerville, TX) made a waffler that allows you to create stuffed waffles.
