Food: Sunday 10p/9c
Host: Geoffrey Zakarian
Official WebsiteFacebook
Nick Rodgers
Howell, MI
Arlington, VA
Santa Barbara, CA

These four cooks say they're pros. But who are the real chefs and who just plays chef on TV? Here to make that determination: chefs Anne Burrell & Alex Guarnaschelli

ROUND 1: Geoffrey sets the first challenge... you have 30 minutes to cook parmigiana... using pizza.
- Nick: Eggplant Parmigiana
- Megan: Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich
- Scott: Chicken & Waffle Bruschetta
- Dawn: Pizza-Crusted Eggplant Parmigiana
ELIMINATED: Megan, who is a...CON! Megan is an account manager for a job-search website.

ROUND 2: you can make whatever you want, but your dish must incorporate deli food.
- Nick: Mediterranean Spring Roll
- Scott: Rockin' Reuben (with a little bit of sassy slaw)
- Dawn: Deli-Inspired Scotch Egg

The only remaining con of the bunch is...Scott, a general contractor and real estate developer. Dawn is finishing up her master's in holistic cooking and likes to help people with food allergies. Nick is an executive chef at the Root in White Lake.

So who wins this week? If Scott wins it, he gets $15,000. The winner... DAWN! She pockets $10,000!

JEOPARDY! ROUND: 1999, Little Red Corvette, Sign O' The Times, Bat Dance, "U" Got the Look, My Name Is Prince

Siddharth begins with $200 Bat Dance, finding the Daily Double under $800 1999. He's going for it on this: setting in motion a legal battle over digital music rights, this file-sharing service debuted. "What is Napster?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $3600! He ends up with $2200. With Brandon in the lead  on $7800 to $2400, Siddharth has the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Sounds Like a Color, Explorers, Vegas-Set TV Shows, Theatre Title Duos, There It Is, Double Talk.

... with $400 Vegas-Set TV Shows. Christine finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Theatre Title Duos. She goes all-in on this: the last line of the 1966 play about this pair is spoken by Horatio. "What is 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead'?" ... Count it! $8000! Brandon finds the other under $1600 Explorers. He fronts $2000 on this: around 1000 AD, he sailed west to see North America, which Bjarni Herjolfsson had sighted. "Who is Leif Ericsson?" Got it for $17,400! He ends up with $15,400 to Christine's $16,800. Siddharth can spoil with $6600.

Want to stand where Siddharth is? Jeopardy! is now registering for the October online test! Go to now to qualify!

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Film Adaptations": in a 2011 survey of movie credits, of the top 25 most adapted writers, this novelist is the only one living. Correct response: who is Stephen King?

Everyone misses, but Siddharth comes up top trumps with a low wager, getting another $6534 and giving him $28,135 for two!

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

  Susan Taylor (Essington, PA)
She works the night shift as a restaurant server.
(+1): Her best friend, Geri

She turns to the audience at $1,000 on the way to securing $5,000. She then uses the 50:50 at $7,000, and makes it all the way to this...

When "Star Wars" was released in 1977, what was the first sentence in the famous "opening crawl"?
A: The galaxy is in peril.
B: It is a period of civil war.
C: A darkness is encroaching.
D: An evil empire spreads.

Susan is a fan, but she can't remember this, so she calls on Geri. She doesn't know, but together, they narrow it down to A or B; eventually, Geri is leaning towards A. But even though they're in Vegas, Susan doesn't want to gamble what she has on this, so she walks with $30,000! As for the answer, it's B!

In the nightcap, Joe Mattern (Decatur, GA) had a 10-year career in the news before becoming a driver. Here, he polls the audience at $7,000, then calls on his wife, Michelle, and uses the 50:50 to help him try for $50,000. There, he hopes that in 1864, a two-cent coin became the first to bear the phrase "E pluribus unum," but the phrase was actually "In God We Trust." That means he leaves with $5,000.

Taking a shot at a single question for $1,000 is Danielle Costalino. Is the urban pest called "Cimex lectularius" better known as a locust? No, it's a bed bug.
