HS:
Carlos: $2K/Aimee: $800/Cole: $4600

In the middle of Cooking & Food is the DD that Cole ($7K) chooses as Carlos has slightly gone backwards to $1400 & Aimee’s $200 on the red side; $2.5K is what he’s making the clue worth.

The name of this French stew of fish & vegetables comes from words meaning “boil” & “low”.

“What is bouillabaisse?”- sure enough.

IN THE ROUGH DRAFT

Cole ($18.5K) gets a DD Sweep; the 1st of the rd.’s the $1200 Broadway Debut but he only wagers $500 (at this time $8200 is where Carlos stands & Aimee’s 3rd w/ $7400).

Katharine McPhee served up a fine performance as server & pie-maker Jenna in this musical.

“Uh, what is…France, I have no idea”- it was titled “Waitress”. Then on the $800 Japanese Emperors answer he risks $1K.

Ironically “Showa”, the period during which this 20th C. emperor reigned, can translate to “bright peace”.

“Who is Hirohito?”…yes.
