In this week's on-air puzzle, every answer is the first and last name of a famous person. Will gives a two-word phrase; change one letter in each word to name the person. Here's a hint: The letter you change to is the same in the first and last names. For example, for Seal Pens the answer would be Sean Penn; each letter is changed to an "N."

Challenge from Last Week: From Steve Baggish from Arlington, Mass. Name an event at which food is served, eight letters. Inside this word is the name of a food, in four letters. Remove these four letters, and the remaining four letters, in order, will name another food. What words are these?

The answer: Clambake/lamb and cake

The winner: David Carroll from St. Francis, Wis.

This Week's Challenge: Rearrange the letters in CHARADES, to make two words that are synonyms. What are they?
