*totals are based on the MSRP of the prizes and rounded to the nearest dollar.
We're wrapping up the week with Daniel Kermidas, Bella Aiello-Howe, Theodore Carr, and Talanaz Hersini bidding on his & hers snowboards. The $1754 equipment goes to Daniel, who gets to play with a $2499 grill, a $3495 iMac, and this question: Stay or Switch? He stays... he needed to switch.

Bella is que bella with a $644 pack of coffee makers. Now wire up, because you're playing for a Chevy Equinox in That's Too Much! She thinks $24,500 is Too Much. And that's... just short. It was $25,390, meaning that the next one over, $25,810 was too much.

Rhonda Harris-Scott gets a $520 set of sunglasses. Can she shine on a trip to Singapore (6n @ Pan Pacific Orchard)? Only if she hits the Bullseye. She takes half a dozen of the Wet Ones wipes. Each one.... $1.99. Six is a WIN!

Daniel's the second player in the last week to spin out $26,000 ON THE BIG WHEEL! Surely this is the sign that things are finally turning around. Let's see what Talanaz does after getting a $735 Xbox One package. She'll deal with a 3DTV and a leather sofa in Coming ($5127) or Going ($7215). Talanaz is coming... and it's a good decision!

Kenneth gets a $1055 cutlery set, but that's chips compared to THESE chips. IT'S PLINKO TIME! With chips from Drew, a $42 mandoline, a $66 can opener, and a $28 steam iron, he wins... $20,100! We're making it rain up in here!

So we make the breakeven. Not a consolation for Theodore, who gets one last shot at the stage with a pair of Galaxy Tabs. The price: $600. The winner... Shannon Gerard. She can add on cookware, a foosball table, a set of Michael Kors purses, and a Hyundai Elantra in More or Less. First, the cookware, more or less than $1400? She says less... $900 is less. Next, the foosball table, more or less than $800? She says more... $1200 is more! The purses, more or less than $2100? She goes less... it was MORE, $2472.

Talanaz joins Daniel in the Showcase. First up, $3000 to spend in Italy (6n @ the Amalfi coast) with a jet boat. Top winner Daniel passes, and Talanaz bids $22,000. Daniel gets to be the toast of the town with a patio group, an ATV, a Sea-Doo, a Honda Rebel motorcycle, and a trip to Argentina (6n @ Mendoza). He bids $28,500. Actual price... $26,846. Actual price of Talanaz's Showcase... $36,682 to win $42,544! So we end the week with a bang!

As a reminder, TPIR week 6 will be abbreviated due to the cancellation of this year's Halloween special. If it's any consolation, our boy Drew is on the mend.

Susan & Anna
Jay & Janice
Luke Perry
"Major Crimes"
Kathy Najimy

Round 1: Susan & Anna go with "Put It on My 'Bill'" (famous Bills & Billys), getting eight for $800. Jay & Janice get "Fooorrreeee!!!" (celebrity golfers), getting three for $300.

Round 2: As we swap stars, Janice gives on "I Now Pronounce You..." (celebrities who are ordained ministers), getting three more for $600, $900 total. Susan gives on "Nice Asphalt!" (famous folks who've had streets named after them), getting four for $800 more, $1600 total. Fun Fact: the Super Mario Bros. have a street named after them in Spain.

In the race to $3000, we have "We Are the Champions!" (hall of famers). The $800 name will decide it. Susan misses Sacagawea to win it for Jay & Janice, $3400 to $2700.

... which is theirs to keep, but now let's see if they can turn that into $20,000 in the final round. Janice gets seven of the final 10, leaving Jay to get the final three in 30 seconds. He gets American Express, the Rockettes... and misses Kate Gosselin after passing on it.

In the nightcap (featuring Jesse Williams & Vivica A. Fox), airline retirees Debra & Jan beat out sisters Patricia & Calista $3400 to $1700. In the bonus, they miss Kevin Hart, Jason Statham, and Mr. Clean.

  Mark is back on board as the Game Plane leaves one sunny paradise for another. It's Flight 1070 from Honolulu to LA.

THE PLANE TRUTH: Hannah (Honolulu) vs. Tig (Huntington Beach, CA) are playing for $250 from a family four-pack to Ripley's Believe It Or Not! in Hollywood. Hannah wins, 6-4! Tig gets a family four-pack, but Hannah wins $250 from!

DO YOU READ ME?: A little turbulence doesn't stop the Game Plane. Amanda & Jeanna (mother/daughter) are playing a round of "Pyramid". Amanda gets nine things found at a county fair for $180. Jeanna gets nine things at a department store for a total of $360 and a special prize: Impact goggles... yay?

CHECKLIST CHALLENGE: Vickie Ivey (Virginia Beach) vs. Kate Chaffin (Kaneohe, HI). Mark has a list. You have to take turns bidding on how many of the list you can name. Try not to Wipeout. First two out of three wins. Vickie gets two standard properties on a Monopoly board. After neither contestant can name the Muppets on the movie poster (tying the score), Mark goes around the plane and pays $20 to anybody who can. Finally, animals in Barnum's Animal cookies. Kate is challenged to name five. She fails at three. She gets $20 for singing the song, but Vickie gets a Lenovo Yoga tablet for the win! 

We're getting ready to land this plane, but not before the two big winners of the day, Amanda & Gina and Hannah play the BIG DEAL for a tour of New England.

JEANNA & AMANDA: K-J-3-Q-8-10-4-10-3-9-2-7-6 (12)
HANNAH: 2-4-J-3-8-Q (5)

And Amanda & Jeanna is the big winner of the Big Deal, and they're going to New England! Meanwhile, we're on final descent into LA, and from there... who knows?

  Matthew banked $17,800 yesterday. Today, he'll look for more to end the week.
Matthew LaMagna
Arlington, VA
digital consultant

Amy Thon
Tempe, AZ
museum development assistant
Sam Heft-Luthy
college student

Matthew starts by sweeping College Team Names en route to a $6600 first-half of the J! round. Sam has $1600 to Amy's $800.

Matthew finds the Daily Double under $800 1809. He fronts $3000 on this: in May, Mary Dixon Kies became the first American woman to receive one, for a way to weave straw with silk or thread. "What is a patent?" RIGHT for $10,600! He ends up with $11,200 to Amy's $2000. Sam has $1400 and the first clue in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Libraries, where Matthew finds the second Daily Double under $1200. He fronts $3000 on this: the library of this type of institution in Norfolk, Massachusetts made Malcolm X the thinker & orator we know. "What is a university?" No, it was a prison, dropping him to $9000. Amy gets the other under $800 Geographun. She goes for half of her stash on this: 7 mini-kingdoms make up this federated nation on the Persian Gulf. "What is the United Arab Emirates?" RIGHT for $3600! She has $5600 to Sam's $8600. Matthew is out in front with $16,600.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Tony Nominations": although she appeared in only 2 Broadway musicals, she got Tony nominations for both, for 1962 & 1964. Correct response: who was Barbra Streisand?

No one gets it, but Matthew has enough to win again with $16,000, giving him a two-day total of $33,800.

Jerome does NOT want to see clubs as they are zonks. 3 clubs and he is out. Whenever Jerome wins a prize and if he decides to go on, he must complete another line of a prize or zonk to see if he can quit again. His first pick is 8 of diamonds, and the King of Clubs for his first zonk. He picks on for the four of hearts and the 7 of clubs for the 2nd zonk. He passes on $300 to play on and picks the King of Hearts. Next is the 5 of hearts then the King of Spades. 10 of hearts means he is one away from the car! Next is the 5 of spades. He picks the Ace of Hearts and WINS THE CAR! He decides TO STOP!

Thats a great way to start our Friday show! We move on to Chadd(as Uncle Sam) who has Curtain 2 and will get a clue from the LMAD Jukebox from CD3 and it's J-POP.

Michael takes the box(after a visit from Wayne's Daughter Miley) and wins a Gucci Watch and Wallet with Iphone5s worth $2,684! Who gets the $1,000 check from the 2 silver envelopes and it's Christine! She has $1,250 and can take the Big Box or keep the cash. She takes the box and wins a trip to the Gulf Coast of Florida for 4N at the Hilton Sandestin Golf Resort and Spa worth $5,074! Velma can take the $500 + the Gold Envelope or Curtain 3. She takes the cash and passes on THE SAME NISSAN CUBE WON BY JEROME EARLIER IN THE SHOW worth $17,710! She wins $2,700 + 500 = $3,200 which is not a bad payday after all!

Julie the Mermaid and Alicia the Makeup Artist each get $500. Alicia can have the Michael Kors from Tiffany if she gives Julie the $500 she has. She does and wins the bag and a gold, diamond and citrine necklace from Diamonds by Angie. With the Michael Kors bag that deal is worth $3,195! Now Julie has $1,000 and can have Curtain 2 if she gives Alicia the $1,000 she has. Julie keeps her $1,000 and Alicia adds a new outdoor patio from Patio Heaven worth $4,260! Julie has $1,000 and Alicia has $7,455 in prizes. Who keeps and who trades for the small box? They both keep and pass on a SARDINE BELT(ZONK).

Tiffany/Michael(Mona Lisa/American Gothic) are playing GOLD RUSH for a Mitsubishi Lancer ES Sedan worth $18,005! They have to mine 5 consecutive nuggets of gold from the 8 boxes without hitting the 2 dynamites(Zonks). If they hit the dynamite they are blown back to the  bottom. 2 zonks and they are out.

They have $2,000 and play on with 7. They have $4,000! 1 and 5 are left. They STOP. 1 was the other gold. 5 was the other zonk.

Last deal of the week involves Sarania the Doctor. She gets $4,000 in an envelope...but how much of it is real and how much is fake? Will she take the cash or the LMAD Envelope? She takes the envelope and passes on $3, REAL CASH. $200 was fake. She wins AN AUTOGRAPHED PICTURE OF THE BACK OF JONATHAN'S HEAD(ZONK)!

Who trades for a shot at $21,386? It's JEROME with his CUBE! He picks 2. 1 was the LMAD Vault with $2,347 in cash. 2 is a suite of Haier appliances including refrigerator/dishwasher/combo washer and dryer/40 bottle wine refrigerator/42" HDTV and $1,000 for groceries worth $5,694. 3 was the Big Deal and it started off with a trip to Aruba for 6N to the Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino along with Kia Rio LX

Lisa DiFebo-Osias

executive chef/co-owner, DiFebo's Restaurant

Today, the cooks are going to reinvent that fall favorite, Jelly Belly gourmet candy corn.

ROUND 1: recreate an exact copy of the Jelly Belly candy corn. Joining Marc on the panel: vice chairman of Jelly Belly Bill Kelley and some would say "questionable chef" Sandra Lee.

Nicole is using butter. Lisa is using shortening. Peter is using maple syrup & honey. Which of these will yield the tastiest Halloween treat?

Nicole: 7-6-6 = 19
Peter: 8-7-8 = 23 - SAFE
Stella: 5-4-5 = 14... and that's a wrap for Lisa. 

ROUND 2 (30 minutes to create an innovative dish using candy corn): 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.

Nicole: Candy Corn Brownie with Ganache & Mousse
Peter: Candy Corn Ice Cream Sandwich & Butternut Squash

Nicole's flavor is amazing, but it looks a little left to be desired. Peter was incredibly creative. But where's the candy-corn taste? The winner... by a score of 25 to 19... PETER! He gets enough Jelly Belly candy corn to last him through NEXT Halloween.

  Patti Carpenter (Chelsea, NY) begins this episode with $34,000 through 5 questions, and with Plus One still on the table.

A common sight in Christian art, paintings of Jesus wearing a crown of thorns are named after what words spoken by Pontius Pilate?
A: Festina lente
B: Ecce homo
C: Alea jacta est
D: Errare humanum est

Patti thinks A is a little too exciting. She isn't sure, so she uses her Plus One to bring down her friend, Elaine. She is leaning towards D. In the end, though, Patti walks with $17,000! As for the answer, it's B!

Kenna Kolaitos (New York, NY)
(+1): Her boyfriend, Lenny

She jumps the 2nd question, which had $10,000. She sees this with $35,000 banked...

In addition to being the first American woman in space, in 1983 Sally Ride also set what NASA record that's still held to this day?
A: Tallest astronaut
B: Shortest astronaut
C: Youngest astronaut
D: Oldest astronaut

Kenna wants to hear from the audience; 50% say B, with 41% saying C. She then brings down her Plus One; Lenny says it's definitely B. Still, Kenna decides to walk with $17,500! As it turns out, the answer is C!

Harsh Jain (Jersey City, NJ)
(+1): His sister, Janika

He jumps the 1st question, leaping over $2,000. He goes to the audience on the 2nd, and their help gets him $15,000! Then, after getting $25,000 from the 3rd, he faces this with $40,000...

All but which of these is a correct way to refer to more than one octopus?
A: Octopi
B: Octopices
C: Octopuses
D: Octopodes

C is jumping out at Harsh, but he brings in his Plus One for some help. Janika is thinking B or D, leaning more towards D. She is 75% sure. With that, Harsh decides to walk with $20,000! Good thing he did, because the answer is B!
