OPHIRA EISENBERG, HOST:

Now we're going to crown this week's grand champion. Let's bring back from Quoth the Raven, Something More, Rebecca Missel. From Hurtful Words, Blake Hamilton. From Zombie Gourmets, Jamie Orenstein. And from Sympathy for the Tasmanian Devil, Camille Bryan to play our Ask Me One More final round.

(APPLAUSE)

EISENBERG: Puzzle guru Will Hines, I'd like you to crown our champion.

WILL HINES: All right, contestants. The final round is called Killer Apps. In this round, every correct answer will be a word, phrase, or proper noun that contains the letters A-P-P in order. For example, if we say it's what you tear off your birthday presents, you would say wrapping paper. So we're going to play this spelling bee style so one wrong answer and you're out. You will only have a few seconds to give us an answer.

Last person standing is the ASK ME ANOTHER grand winner. So remember, every answer has the letters A-P-P in order. Here we go. Rebecca, these devices kill mosquitoes and other insects with electricity.

REBECCA MISSEL: Zapper.

HINES: That's correct.

(APPLAUSE)

HINES: Blake, in a popular English carol it ends the line: We wish you a Merry Christmas and a?

BLAKE HAMILTON: Happy New Year.

HINES: That's right.

(APPLAUSE)

HINES: Jamie, magician David Copperfield made a jumbo jet, train car, and the Statue of Liberty all seemingly do this.

JAMIE ORENSTEIN: Disappear.

HINES: That's it. Camille, it's what the audience will do if you get this question right.

CAMILLE BRYAN: Applaud.

HINES: That's right.

(APPLAUSE)

HINES: Falling backwards three point shot, all net. Sorry, sports metaphor. Wrong place for it.

(LAUGHTER)

HINES: Rebecca, this website has been called the online shoe utopia.

MISSEL: Zappo's.

HINES: That's right.

(APPLAUSE)

HINES: Blake, it's the Japanese city that hosted the 1972 Winter Olympics as well as a brand of Japanese beer.

HAMILTON: Sapporo.

HINES: Yes.

(APPLAUSE)

HINES: Jamie, often seen on "Antiques Roadshow," it's the act of valuing an object.

ORENSTEIN: Appraisal.

HINES: That's right.

(APPLAUSE)

HINES: Camille, it's what the British call a diaper.

BRYAN: Nappy.

HINES: Ah. Yes.

(APPLAUSE)

HINES: Rebecca, known for his expensive Italian suits, mob boss John Gotti was given this nickname. I'm sorry, just step aside. We'll see if Blake can steal. Known for his expensive Italian suits, mob boss John Gotti was given this nickname.

HAMILTON: Cappo.

HINES: That is not right. Step aside. We'll see if Jamie can steal.

ORENSTEIN: The Dapper Don.

HINES: That is correct.

(APPLAUSE)

HINES: So Blake and Rebecca, I'll ask you to step aside. We're down to two. Camille, the cocktail known as a fuzzy navel is typically made with orange juice and this fruity liqueur. Oh, sorry. That's time to step aside. We'll see if Jamie can steal.

ORENSTEIN: Pineapple.

HINES: Oh, that is not correct.

(SOUNDBITE OF GROANS)

HINES: Looking for peach schnapps. Camille, it's the 10th letter of the Greek alphabet. I need you to step aside. Jamie?

ORENSTEIN: Kappa?

HINES: That's correct. You are our grand winner.

(APPLAUSE)

EISENBERG: Jamie, congratulations. You're our ASK ME ANOTHER big winner. R.L. Stine has put together your very own fear pack. It's a collection of scary chatchkis from his home like a stuffed raven. There's some skulls. There's some cable bills. Just really scary stuff.

(LAUGHTER)

ORENSTEIN: I'm scared to collect.

EISENBERG: Yes. Well, congratulations.

(APPLAUSE)

EISENBERG: And that's our show. Thank you so much for joining us. If you're listening at home and would like to be a contestant, find us on Facebook or Twitter.
