This week is special for 2 reasons - and today is extra special because TODAY IS THE SHOW'S 7000th Episode - and every day this week someone will win $7,000 in cash! More on that later! It's Day 5 of "Big Money" week!

The $1,000 Tossup is PHRASE! Alessandra Curcio from Elmwood Park, NJ solves THAT'S A BIG NUMBER. She loves ballroom dancing, trivia and board games. Melanie Holly from Raleigh, NC is married and works in marketing. She loves Virginia Tech and pizza! Her wedding cake was a pizza! Jason Leary is an IT Manager from Augusta, GA. He is married for 9 years! He plays the bass guitar.

The $2,000 Tossup is WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Melanie has $2,000 with POURING CHAMPAGNE. She starts SONG LYRICS and hits 6 $2,500 T's - that's $15,000! She also picks up the $1,000 Loaded Visa GC from Beef Bucks with 2 $500 L's. She dominates and solves LET'S GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT for a total of $17,950 in cash and GC. She has $19,950 in cash and prizes! We move on to...

.... The Eggland's Best mystery round which is started by Jason. It's our crossword round with the clue of SEVEN ______. There are four words that fit the clue. Jason misses. Alessandra hits Lose a Turn with one letter left on the board. Melanie reads TEEN SWANS THOUSAND SEAS for $650 which we bump to $1,000. She has $20,950 in cash and prizes! 

Before the next round, we see a 2002 bit where Renee was patting Pat's rear! Then the Prize Puzzle/Express Wedge Round which is started by Alessandra. It's FUN & GAMES. She Bankrupts. So Does Melanie. Jason hits 2 $1,000 Express Wedge G's late in the round with no vowels left to buy. He hops on and starts with 2 $1,000 H's, a $1,000 F, but all the work he did throughout the round comes crashing down with a bad D and he loses $10,750 on a very painful Bankrupt.  Alessandra misses. Melanie solves TREKKING THROUGH RAIN FORESTS for NO CASH but Melanie's dominant performance continues with her trip to Central America from to Guatemala/Honduras worth $6,000! She has $26,950 in cash and prizes!

Before the next round, we see the very first Million Dollar Winner in Michelle Loewenstein when she solved LEAKY FAUCET IN 2008! The $3,000 Tossup is THINGS. Jason has $3,000 with CANDLES ON THE CAKE. He starts RHYME TIME. We go right into a FINAL SPIN worth $1,900 a letter. Jason solves TOASTS TO THE HOSTS for $17,100. For someone who did diddly squat for most of the game, Jason cleans up with $20,100 in cash! WOW! Alessandra leaves with $1,000. Melanie hangs on with $26,950 in cash and prizes including her Central American tour!

The Pre-Bonus Road Total is $48,050! Melanie picks PHRASE over THING and PEOPLE.

Melanie lands on the N in WIN WEDGE. With the RSTLNE and her choices of M C G O

S O /M _ C _
_ _ _ E

She had SO MUCH but not enough HYPE. She loses the 2019 Mercedes CLA250C but leaves with $26,950 in cash and prizes!

We end tonight's special episode with Pat thanking the crew(behind them) and Harry Friedman, Jim Thornton, his wife Lesly and Vanna!

Now take SO MUCH HYPE to and win CASH!

Last week on American Idol, Laci Kaye Booth was voted out... but the judges decided to spare her. Tonight, she joins Laine Hardy, Alejandro Aranda, Madison VanDenburgh, and Wade Cota for three rounds of songs LIVE coast-to-coast. At stake, a spot in the finale.

Voting will be open for the duration of the show, online, in-app, by text, and by phone. The three singers with the most votes by the end of the two hours will sing for a contract next week.

ROUND 1: Bobby Bones' Choice
- Wade Cota: "You Are The Best Thing", Ray LaMontaigne. Katy still detects he's trying to shake off his lack of movement. Luke likes how he didn't overdo it. Lionel just wants him to relax and enjoy the ride.
- Laci Kaye Booth: "The House That Built Me", Miranda Lambert. Luke, in perhaps the first "Wham!" line of the season - finally - says that it's hard to perform for America knowing that they didn't vote for you. Lionel says she gave her best vocal in weeks. Katy says that she needs to turn it up another notch.
- Alejandro Aranda: "No Woman No Cry", Bob Marley & the Wailers. Lionel says Alejandro is "a diamond". Katy likes that he hasn't taken himself seriously until now. Luke says he commanded the vocal, but as long as he doesn't change, he'll change music.
- Laine Hardy: "Can't You See", Marshall Tucker Band. Katy wants Laine to fight harder, while Luke says that the arrangement was good. Lionel wants to see more attitude. No one really was wowed.
- Madison VanDenburgh: "What About Us", Pink. Luke wants her to keep digging in with that voice of hers. Lionel says she's ready for showtime. Katy says "It's happening before your very eyes!"

So round 1 to Madison it looks like.

ROUND 2: Elton John
- Wade Cota: "Rocket Man". Lionel likes that he's playing with character. Katy likes that he's sticking to the song. Luke wanted Wade to keep his glasses on the whole time instead of whipping them off mid-performance.
- Laci Kaye Booth: "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)". Katy calls her a pop star. Luke liked her stage presence. Lionel saw that she made it her own.
- Alejandro Aranda: "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word". Luke says that he's owning the night. Katy says that he was very connected. Lionel said that he took everyone on a journey.
- Madison VanDenburgh: "Your Song". Lionel thought Madison knocked it out of the park. Katy says something about ketchup and mustard and cheeseburgers. Luke is enthralled by her range.
- Laine Hardy: "Something About the Way You Look Tonight". Luke says, "We heard you sing tonight." Lionel says that Laine has the look, the style, and the sound of a winner. Katy appreciates that he challenged himself.

Looks like Laine is going to claim this round.

ROUND 3: Mother's Day
- Wade Cota: "Hard Luck Woman", KISS. The judges are proud and say that this is just the beginning for him.
- Laci Kaye Booth: "Dreams", Fleetwood Mac. Again, it's a visual into the future of her career.
- Madison VanDenburgh: "Make You Feel My Love", Billy Joel. It was elegant, classic, and timeless.
- Laine Hardy: "Hey Jude", The Beatles. Solid.
- Alejandro Aranda: "Blesser", original song. Lionel says he's watching history in the making. Luke says he's not worthy to judge his talent.


ADVANCING TO THE FINALE (in random order)
- Laine Hardy
- Madison VanDenburgh
- Alejandro Aranda

They're going on a trip back home, but when they come back, they're going to sing for a title!

ROUND 1: First up, Russ gets to probe Jon, Louie, and Caroline. He only gets one right for $100. Brianna is left with Sherri, Byron, and Billy. She misses Sherri, but gets the other two for $200.

ROUND 2: After the switch, Russ sweeps the panel to take the lead, $700 to $400.

ROUND 3: Brianna gets to go first, and going into the final question, Russ widens the gap, $1300-$700. Brianna's question to Caroline won't make much difference, but she judges correctly. Russ wins, $1300-$1000.

- Q1: According to Psychology Today, the disorder that can cause someone to believe they've died & lost their soul is called... delusions of grandeur, Cotard's syndrome, or marriage? He says "Cotard's syndrome"... and he's not dead yet.
- Q2: According to the Scottish National Dictionary, a noisy disagreement in which everyone involved is speaking at the same time is called... a cabby-labby, a kerfuffle, a balderdash, or The View? He goes with a cabby-labby... and we're playing for money, honey.
- Q3: While being burned at the stake, Joan of Arc's final words were... "God save me", "Jesus! Jesus!", "I accept my destiny", "My life, for France", "May God have mercy on your souls", or... (Caroline: "Is it getting hot in here, or is it just me?")? He says, "My life, for France"... and he's dead. It's "Jesus! Jesus!". Thank God for the win, $1300.

JEOPARDY! ROUND: The Parent Company, Natural Landmarks, 2-Word Alliteration; Hey, You!; Hall Pass, It's Not Rhesus

Dave gets the first position and starts with $600 Hey, You!. At the TV timeout, Benjamin has $2000 to $1600 for Ellie. Dave is on $600

Benjamin finds the Daily Double under $1000 Hall Pass. He plays the level on this: Praise the Lord! The Fisk Jubilee Singers & the Mighty Clouds of Joy are members of this Hall of Fame. "What is Gospel?" GOOD for $5200! He ends up with $5800 to Ellie's $3200, dinged on a reversal. Dave has $1800 and command of the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: The Underground Railroad, World of Lit, Computers, Beatles Songs by Lyric, Trying Times, "O-U" Words.

... with $1200 Beatles Song By Lyric. Benjamin finds the first Daily Double under $800 The Underground Railroad. After a line-ruling bumping him to $9000, he decides to go all-in on this: "The Drinking Gourd" was his group of stars that helped runaways find the North Star in the night sky. "What is the Big Dipper?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $18,000! Dave finds the other under $1200 Trying Times. He tries for $2000 on this: in 1735 John Peter Zenger was acquitted of this using the argument that printing the truth was not illegal. "What is heresy?" No, it was libel, dropping him to $3000. He recovers to $6200 to $8800, but with $22,000, it's Benjamin's spot in the semis to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "US States": this state entered the Union in 1820 after separating from another state that began with the same 2 letters. Correct response: what is Maine?

Dave got it right to almost double, assuring him of a spot next week. Benjamin also got it to win with $22,001. He will join THESE players...

- Francois Barcomb - GAME 3 WINNER
- Matthew Bunch - WILD CARD
- Trevor Crowell - GAME 2 WINNER

We end the week at the Marketplace with the LMAD Salute to Moms everywhere! It's the Mother's Day Episode and that starts off with Malissa(part of an audience full of moms - she is in curlers and a robe). Jonathan shows Malissa a baby book. All moms have that to document their children's first few years. We show a picture of Tiffany as a baby with Baby's First Shoes(a photoshop of course). We have something inside that book as well. Will Malissa keep that or take Curtain 1? Leftovers to go Lilian(as Olive Oyl). Malissa keeps the book. Lilian takes $500 over Curtain 1 which was a backyard package including Emotti Modern Living Outdoor Furniture, LED Projector, Screen, Outdoor Barware and Cart along with 1 year of See's Famous Old Time Candy worth $5,082! Next we turn the page and it was "Baby's First Toy" with Kat playing a Toy Xylophone. Melissa can keep the book or take Curtain 2. Michelle the Queen Bee gets the leftovers. Malissa keeps the Baby Book. Michelle takes $1,000 over Curtain 2 and passes on a JUNK BOAT(ZONK)! She can keep the book or take the Big Box. Malissa keeps the book and passes on the Big Box which was a trip to Costa Rica for 6n at the Hotel San Bada worth $7,409! The last page in the baby book shows baby Jonathan with BABY'S FIRST PIGGY BANK -- hmmm...we peel the pig and see that Malissa is going home with $1,000 in cash!

Since this is our Mother's Day episode - let's switch roles for this act. Tiffany will host and Wayne will Model. Sharon the witch is going to play! She is playing for a Kia Soul worth $18,820! The game is WINFALL. We have 7 discs on a declining ramp - 2 red, 2 blue, 2 yellow and one green that says WIN. Sharon will roll a special 10 sided die - it has red spaces, blue spaces, yellow spaces and one black starred space(WILD). As long as Sharon continues to roll within the rules set, she will win the Kia. I'll explain later in the deal. Sharon rolls WILD(BLUE), and BLUE AGAIN. Here's the trick. Sharon can not roll blue anymore. If she does, she's out. Sharon passes on $500 to roll...RED. Sharon passes on $1,000 to roll. It's YELLOW. Sharon passes on $1,500 and knocks out the other yellow. This is the final decision. Sharon has 2 shots at the car. She can roll either a red space or the wild and the Kia is hers. Tiffany offers $2,000 not to go for the car. She rolls and wins....THE CAR with a RED!

Wayne is back hosting with Mary the Ice Cream Cone and Michelle in the Red Boa(who saw Wayne in Kinky Boots). It's MOM'S NIGHT OUT. They are doing deals together. The Big Box COMES WITH WHEELS and Curtain 1 COMES WITH TICKETS. They pass on the Big Box which was a new Piaggio Scooter with Helmet worth $3,418! Will they keep COMES WITH TICKETS or take the Mini-Curtain? They keep COMES WITH TICKETS and pass on the mini curtain which was JONATHAN MANGUM'S WORKOUT VIDEO(ZONK)! Individual decisions time? Who keeps and who trades for $1,000 in cash! No one takes the cash and both Mary and Michelle are going to use their PLANE tickets to go to Cape Cod! It's a 4N stay at the Red Jacket Resorts worth $5,298!

We need a mom with child and they are Quinton and his mom Christina(banjo player/washboard player). They are playing CUSTOMER SERVICE HOTLINE. We have three hotlines - HANDYMAN, NANNY and MR. SECRETS. Quinton/Christine will call two of them hoping to ascertain a clue about the Curtain 2 prize. They pick HANDYMAN and no clue. MR. SECRETS is next. No clues from them either. NANNY is the clue. They can take Curtain 2 or the teeny box. They take Curtain 2 and pass on ruby/diamond earrings from Diamond and Jewelry Gallery Studio City worth $4,800! They win a TON OF DIRTY LAUNDRY(ZONK), but they get $200 for being played out! But that's not all! Every one in the audience gets an eco-friendly beauty box from Love Goodly!

Chad/Erin(horse/cowgirl) are playing for a Chevy Spark worth $15,025! They are playing the classic 7 spots game. We have one car spot, one $1,000 spot, one $500 spot and 4 zonks. Chad/Erin brought down their wallet and purse for a very good reason. Wayne will ask them for three items. For every item they have, a zonk goes away(up to three). If they can do this right, they will have a one in four shot to win the car. First item is TWO GOLD KEYS. They have it and 5 goes away. Next is LOTION - they don't have it. Last is HAIRPIN - that is not good either. They pick 4. Will they take the pick or a sure thing or a designer purse from Jimmy Choo along with Koils by Nature Hair Products worth $1,495! They go for the car and win...THE CAR! That's TWO today!

Last deal of the day involves Lila the Rainbow. She gets the kids book "One Cat, Two Cat, Red Cat, Blue Cat" from the LMAD Book Club. There is a mystery cash bookmark. Will she keep the cash or take Curtain 3? She takes 3 and passes on $250. Lila wins a trip to Cabo San Lucas for 6N at the Playa Grande Resort and Grand Spa. It's worth $5,690!

Who trades for a $22,210 Big Deal? It's Lila with her just won Cabo trip!

She picks 3. 1 was a pair of electric bikes from E-Lux and Mokuyobi summer gear worth $5,151! Lila wins a 65" Smart TV with a Credenza and Bose Speakers worth $3,618! 2 was the Big Deal and it was a TWO TRIP BIG DEAL. It started with a 6N stay at the Renaissance Curacao Resort and Casino. Then we add a 7N Celestyal Cruises cruise of the Greek Islands along with Club Glove Luggage! It was worth $22,210!
