Patrick Neighbors of Davenport, Iowa, decides to spend all his challenge money on one unsuspecting family. He goes to the grocery store where he does his own shopping and finds a woman standing in line with her husband and two carts of groceries. He tells her he'd like to pay for her groceries and gives her the remaining value of the $1,000 gift card. The groceries come to $269, leaving $731 for her to spend!

The couple is in shock during the whole experience. They hug Patrick and tell him they plan to spend the money on Christmas gifts for their children, which pleases Patrick very much.
