As a reminder, the cut line for the Wild Card is $13,601. Surpass that, and you're guaranteed a slot next week.

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Organizations, Newer Words &  Phrases, Miscellany, Setting the Scene in Shakespeare, November Datebook, Single-Named Celebs

Francois drew first position and gets to play with $1600 Setting the Scene in Shakespeare, finding the Daily Double under $1000 November Datebook. In second with $2600, $1600 less than leading Steven, he wagers $2500 on this: on November 9, 1908 a tradition began as hotel guest Archie Bailey ordered 25 of these to put in the rooms. "What are Gideon Bibles?" RIGHT for $5100! He ends up with $7100 to $8400 for Steven. Ryan, who was hit with a line ruling to drop his score to $1000, gets the board first in...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Classic Rock Guitarists, Bodies of Water, Stamps, Tough Crossword Clues, Black Holes, Revelations.

... with $2000 Bodies of Water. Ryan finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Revelations. He has $5400 to $14,700 for Francois. He wagers everything on this: a bestselling 1836 "Autobiography" by this frontiersman who died that was revealed as a hoax in the 1880s. "Who is Davy Crockett?" That's right... but Ryan went with Jim Bridger to zero him out. Francois finds the other under $800 Bodies of Water. He has $24,300 and the lead. He goes for $8000 on this: this sea is fairly straight on Italy's shores, but dented by coves & islands on the Balkan side. "What is the Adriatic Sea?" GOOD for $32,300! He ends up with $34,300, and the final automatic semifinalist spot is his to lose. Steven is still in it with $9200, but with only $4000, this is as far as Ryan is going to go.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Literary Characters": from an 1894 work, his name literally translates to "tiger king". Correct response: who is Shere Khan (from "The Jungle Book")?

Everyone's right. Everyone bets everything. Except for Francis, who didn't bet a dime that he didn't have to.


And who's joining him next week?

- Francois Barcomb - AUTOMATIC SEMIFINALIST - $34,300
- Emma Boettcher - AUTOMATIC SEMIFINALIST - $23,800
- Gilbert Collins - AUTOMATIC SEMIFINALIST - $16,801
- Dhruv Gaur - AUTOMATIC SEMIFINALIST - $20,001

- Kyle Jones - WILD CARD - $16,800
- Rachel Lindgren - WILD CARD - $13,601
- Lindsey Shultz - WILD CARD - $14,000

Next week, it's as simple as this in the semis... WIN. OR GO HOME.

Last week, WanMor out of South Jersey and The Rees Family from Nashville by way of Lafayette, LA were given the go-ahead to the next round, moving one step closer to being named America's Most Musical Family - getting $250,000 and a recording contract with Republic Records in the deal. Now, another five family bands will take the stage, and two of them will join the groups from last week.

- The Harris Brothers (Chicago): ... more like Hair-is, am I right? Kye, Khaden, and Kavah came from a bad neighborhood. Music was their way to stay off the streets. Though they look like rappers or hip-hoppers, they are more concentrated on pop rock. Their opening gamit.. Lenny Kravitz' "Are You Gonna Go My Way".
- The Casey Family (Avon, CT): Five sisters - Tasha, Deanna, Noelle, and twins Elise & Kathleen grew up performing, and seven years ago, they decided to be "The Casey Sisters". This is a bit of a farewell tour, since two of them are going off to college in a few years. They sing "My Church" by Maren Morris.
- The Brown-Alexander Family (Philadelphia): Sarai, Soleil, and Sione are all sisters. Sarai as the oldest takes the lead. They started their own musical festival called the Limitless Music Festival to expose young urban youths to the arts. As far as their swag, they got it from they momma. They perform "Problem" by Ariana Grande featuring Iggy Azalea.
- The Maughon Siblings (Kernersville, NC): Eliza and her three older brothers Charlie, Jake, and Landon are in a group called MaugHarmony. They have a gift of harmony. Charlie was six when he found out that he had perfect pitch. They take on OneDirection with "Story of My Life".
- The Next Generation Leahy (Lakefield, ON) Doug & Jennifer and their kids Gregory, Cecilia, Angus, Joseh, Evelyn & Adele all come from Canada.... on a farm. They're multi-instrument performers who come from a musical background. They play Celtic pop music with French Canadian step-dancing thrown in. They're trying to become NORTH America's Most Musical Family with "Better When I'm Dancin'" by Meghan Trainor.

- The Harris Brothers
- The Next Generation Leahy
- The Maughon Siblings

THROUGH TO THE SEMIFINALS by the audience vote...

First ride of the week takes Lynne & Elizabeth to 55th & Eighth. Short ride.. but also a short game as they strike on questions about Groundhog Day, Walter Raleigh and his potatoes, and the proper use of the squeegee.

Let's hope for a better result with Eli & Tyler, roommates who are going to Bleecker Street Bar. They get three of the first four for $150. They need a Street Shoutout on this - yuba is the skin of what high-protein vegan staple? The man on his phone says "tofu"... for $250! They get strike two when they can't name the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage (Taiwan). They use their other Social Media Shoutout when we enter the $200 round - what is the name of this honey-comb-like structure that was flooded with tourists upon its opening in New York City in 2019? They say The Vessel.. and they're up to $650! Tthey get to $850... and they're going for DOUBLE!
- VIDEO BONUS: Named for an early version of the French bicycle, what is the name of this type of arena used for track cycling? They say "peloton"... no, that's a group of bikers, it's a velodrome.

Finally, Adam, Delvonte, Darrell, and Ashley are going to Gray Mare on Second & 4th. Thanks to a Social Media Shoutout, they sweep the first seven for $500.
- RED LIGHT CHALLENGE: all five Spice Girls. Ginger, Baby, Sporty, Scary, and Posh are right for $750.
They end up running out for $1650. That's one hell of a bar tab.

ROUND 1: Tara starts with a 6 to Jacqueline's 5 & Sean's 8. Tara passes an 8 to Sean for 16. Sean returns the favor with an ace for soft 17. Jacqueline busts Sean out with a 10. Tara keeps a 2 for soft 19 and passes a 9 to Jaqueline for 14 before busting her with a king.

ROUND 2: Tara gets a 9, Jacqueline a 10, and Sean a 9. Sean keeps a queen and freezes on 19. Tara passes a 5 to Jacqueline for 15, while Jacqueline passes a 4 to Tara for 13. Jacqueline busts her with a king.
- JACQUELINE's draw: 8 (BUST)

FINAL HAND: Tara has a 10 to Sean's Ace. Sean passes a 4 to Tara for 14, then keeps a 5 & 6 for hard 12. Sean sweeps the round when he busts Tara.

BONUS CATCH 21 with three Power Chips
- HAND #1: 6 - 2 - 7 = 15
- HAND #2: 2 - K - 9 = 21 ($2500)

Doing the math, this could have been a win if you swap the 8 and the deuce in hand #1. Next card.... Queen. Chip it. Next card... King. Chip it. Next card... 5 for 20. He's good with $5000. Next card... an 8. Can't chip it.

ROUND 1: by toss of the coin, Tim is first with Jon, Louie, and Whitney. He gets the first two right for $200. Chante is left with Jackee, Byron, and Bill, missing Byron's question to tie with $200.

ROUND 2: We swap the sides with Chante going first. She gets only Louie's question for $400 total. Tim gets two for $600 total.

ROUND 3: A must-win question for Chante as Tim leads, $1200-$1000 going into this for Whitney - true or false: according to Guinness World Records, the most balls every juggled was 26. She says true. Chantee agrees.... but it's false. It's only 11. Tim wins!

- Q3: According to, the highest-paying entry-level job for a new graduate is... Design engineer, physical therapist, business analyst, legal aide, data scientist, or... (Jackee: "Stay-at-home son.")? Tim goes with design engineer... but it was data scientist. Still, he gets paid $1200 for half an hour's losing.")? She says Hemingway... but it's Rice. Still, it's all in how you play the game, and you played it to $900!

We end the week at the Marketplace by starting off with a person who can't say NO. Sally the Angel gets the leftovers from other deals. Let's do that with Adhara the Tooth Fairy. She can take Curtain 1 or $700. Adhara takes Curtain 1. Sally has $700 and Adhara has a Washer/Dryer with laundry baskets worth $3,307! We do it again with David(as Rocket Man Elton John). He takes the Box and Sally has $900 more for $1,600. David has ZONKY CHEW ACCESSORIES(THE DINNER COLLECTION)(ZONK!) Sally can keep the $1,600 or take the small box. Sally buys the box and is going to MEXICO for 5N at the Grand Bahia Principe Tulum worth $7,312!

Ashley(as Waldo from Where's Waldo) is playing CAR PONG for a Honda Fit 5 worth $17,110! Ashley will get 5 seconds to bounce a signal ping pong ball. If it lands and stays in the center CAR cup, she wins the Honda. Ashley can also win cash in the surrounding cash cups. We want to help Ashley win more time on the clock. Here's how. Ashley has to answer this question: WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING CELEBRITIES HAVE APPEARED IN A FILM TOGETHER WITH A SIBLING? They are: OWEN WILSON, BEN AFFLECK, JAKE GYLLENHAAL, and NATALIE PORTMAN. For every answer she gets right, we will add 5 seconds onto her time(up to 15). Ashley correctly avoids Natalie Portman because Owen was in a film with his brother Luke, Ben was in a film with his brother Casey and Jake acted with Maggie his sister. That means NOTHING to Ashley who has 20 seconds on the clock. She passes on $500 to play for the car! On the 2nd ball with about 18 seconds left, Ashley nails the car. During the last 18 seconds, she adds $750 in cash for a total of $17,860 in cash and car!

Matthew as Zonk Man gets a mind reading clue about the Big Box - IF THE TRADER TAKES THE BIG BOX, THEY MIGHT NEED AN UMBRELLA. Will Matthew take the box or Curtain 2? He takes the box and passes on Curtain 2 which was a new bedroom set from Arte Fina and Ivy Organics mattress worth $5,214! Matthew passes on $500...$700...$1,000...$1,500...he takes the box and read our producer's minds because he is going to a place he correctly guessed - SEATTLE for 4N at the Mediterranean Inn with Victorinox Luggage worth $5,179!

Kelly the Big Deal of the Day, Stephanie the Cat Burglar and Paul the Gladiator are playing BEAT THE DEALER. In round 1, our three dealers will pick letters. The two highest numbers found will move on with $500 in cash. The lowest number will sit down with $100. Kelly picks H and 7. Stephanie picks C and 8. Paul picks B and sits down with a normally high 6. Stephanie and Kelly move on with $500. They are now playing in Round 2 to add this to their total - a trio of HDTVs including a 55", 65" and 75" TVS worth $5,600! Stephanie picks A and 2. Kelly picks F and moves on to the final round with a 5. Kelly has $6,100 in cash and prizes.  Here is her situation. The letters left are D E G and I. The numbers left are 1, 3, 4 and 9. Kelly can keep her cash and prizes or play BEAT THE DEALER one more time. She will pick 2 chips - one for Wayne and one for her. If Wayne wins, she's out with NOTHING. If Kelly wins, she drives off in a Kia Rio Sedan worth $17,115! Kelly STOPS. For fun, she would have been ZONKED OUT BIG TIME. G was 1 for herself (auto-loss) and Wayne's was I(auto- win 9). D was 4 and E was 3.

Rachelle/Lawrence(hockey players) get $1,000 and can earn $1,000 more by playing a drawing game. Wayne shows Rachelle a word. She draws that clue for 15 seconds. If Lawrence gets the clue, they double their money. Lawrence gets SATELLITE DISH. They have $2,000 and can spend it on the small box. They keep the cash and pass on a luxury ski trip for 6N at the Lexington at Jackson Hole in Wyoming worth $5,536! Monique the Hippie has a box of money - but we don't know the denomination. She can take a fist full of money or take Curtain 3? She takes the curtain and passes on $50s - up to $5,000! Monique wins a DILAPIDATED TRUCK. She gets $100 for her baby to be.

Last deal of the week is Gregory(as Thor - real life US Olympic Judo athlete to be). He can take YOU'VE ALREADY WON in the envelope(something we have seen on the show) or the Big Box. He takes the Big Box and passes on THE ZONK TRUCK! Gregory wins a new Can-Am ATV worth $4,199!

Who trades for a shot at $22,750? Ashley trades HER CAR! (C-Note: WHAT?!)

She picks 3. 2 was a trip to Ireland for 5D/4N with CIE Tours worth $11,144! Ashley wins an outdoor activity package with Body Glove Stand Up Paddleboards with Sierra Designs Paddleboard along with a year of Gloe Water worth $2,948! 1 was the Big Deal and it was a $22,750 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV!

ROUND 1: Today's Hidden Square pays off in a trip to Dollywood... and Mickey finds it right off the bat with Deana. The question - You might not know the name Bonnie McGough from Caldwell, Idaho, but in 1981 she was the first American to file a patent for which of these party favorites: a red party cup, a beer koozie, or the triangle peg game? She says "beer koozie"... Mickey agrees... It's the beer koozie, she's right to agree for the prize! Rest of round 1 plays without a $1000 connection. Mickey wins, $2800 to $2200!

START YOUR ENGINES: Megan picks Jon to play with. The question: who did Jon say broke the most hearts in their day: Dusty, Marie, or Gary? She goes with Marie... because come on... She doubles the money to $5600, but does Jon has the car keys? NOPE. It was Dusty.

In the nightcap (featuring Bill Engvall, Deana Carter, Melissa Peterman, Kyle Busch, Fortune Feimster, Carson Kressley, Caroline Rhea, Mickey Guyton, and in the center Sara Evans), country young guns Mitchell Tenpenny and Jimmie Allen squares off for Kesha and Matt respectively.

Hidden Square pays off in a a Bird One eScooter. It's Sara in the middle. Amazingly enough, she goes the entire game without being picked, but Mitchell wins, $1400 to $1300.

START YOUR ENGINES: KEsha goes with Caroline Rhea. The question: which square would Caroline Rhea want to be stuck on a deserted island with: Bill, Sara, or Carson? She goes with Carson. Correct answer... CARSON for $2800! Now the question... does her key start the Compass? Nope. Kyle had the key.

Matthew Atkinson is joining in on Special Guests Week with Katie Guay, Daniel Friend, Toni Malone, and Alexandra Miller playing for a camera package. The $1547 package goes to Alexandra, who'll take that home in a Hyundai Kona if she wins Cover Up.

     9  6  3  4
  4  1  5  2  8
  2  6  1  4  5

First try is $21,654... TWO right, the 21. Is it $21,580? No, it's $21,738.

Toni will try and make up for that with a $1005 table tennis package. She'll take a detour in Costa Rica (6n @ Gaia Hotel & Reserve) if she wins Range Game. She stops it at $7120. The price: $7242!

Tania Larter gets a $2525 set of Jimmy Choos and a chance at a Yamaha Grizzly ATV and 4KTV in the Bargain Game. ATV is marked $1909. The 4KTV is marked $2100. She goes with the ATV. The TV is $28900, the ATV is $3209, and $1300 beats $700 all day!

But Alexandra would go on to the Showcase. Meanwhile, Katie wins an $816 turntable package. She'll take it home in a Kia Rio S if she makes a Hole in One (or Two). Fritos bean dip.. $3.29. Wet Ones wipes.. $1.99. She's putting from the cheap seats. First try... missed on the rebound. Second try... wide left.

Daniel gets off the schneid with a $3347 trip to Lake Tahoe (6n @ Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel), but can he make it worth it for a new kitchen in Flip Flop?

58 79

He flips... He needed to flop.
