WOF Recap: June 2, 2014

We would normally end the season w/ an extra episodes wk., but that’s NOT gonna be the case since Happy Father’s Day (if that’s what it’s called) will round out the season. Regardless, there better be a $100K winner in one or both of those remaining weeks or else…

EPISODE #6036: AMERICA’S GAME

We’re kicking things off on the set of “Sandals Resorts Wk.”, so both trips offered are worth $6,700.

$1K Tossup: ON THE MAP

_ _ _ _ S O N / H O L E
_ Y _ M _ N _

Barbara locates JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING. Going down the line in meeting them…

Barbara Harrison: beauty center owner and supporter of youth shooting sports from Tulsa
Mark Marabate: wedding videographer (he once did so at the base of a volcano) from Marina Del Rey
Akilah Adams: exec. assistant at beverage co. who does various church activities from Dunwoody, GA

$2,000 Tossup: IN THE KITCHEN

_ E A S U _ _ _ G
_ _ _ S

Akilah solves MEASURING CUPS.

FEATURED TRIP: Beaches Resort of your choice

Round 1: RHYME TIME

Akilah first picks up the 1/2 CAR near $900 (Spark) w/ seven T’s, but learns that the A is the only bad vowel of this puzzle. Second, Barbara LOSES A TURN. Third, Mark picks up the Beaches wedge w/ two N’s, buys three I’s and six E’s, and picks three H’s for $1,500. Following his next purchase of three O’s…

_ O O _ / N I _ H T
_ _ E E _ / T I _ H T
_ O N ‘ T / _ E T / T H E
_ E _ _ _ _ _ / _ I T E

…he exactly recites “GOOD NIGHT, SLEEP TIGHT, DON’T LET THE BEDBUGS BITE” for $7,450.

SOLE DUD: A (Akilah)
SOLE LaT: Barbara

Scores after R1
Barbara: $1K/Mark: $8,450 cash & trip/Akilah: $2K

————–

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Barbara’s first letters this round are a $600 T, two E’s, two H’s for another $900, but then N for no, which then gets repeated by Mark. Third, Akilah finds a $3,500 L, buys two I’s, but the A lets her down again; likewise, it’s the sole dud vowel for the second round in a row. Barbara next picks up the Maui Jim gift tag w/ three S’s, but she and Mark LaT out back-to-back (that’s her second one of the game). Akilah then puts up three R’s while on the MW near $800 and gambles instead of doubling her three grand…BANKRUPT. After Barbara spins once for a $600 P…

P R E S S / _ _ _ R
L _ _ _
_ _ / T H E / I R I S H

…I don’t think there’s such a new game called “PRESS YOUR LUCK OF THE IRISH”, but she’s won $4,350 cash & shades.

DUDS: N (Barbara), A (Akilah)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Akilah
LaTs: 2 (Barbara, Mark)
DQ: Mark’s instant N repeat

Scores after R2
Barbara: $5,350 cash & shades/Mark: $8,450 cash & trip/Akilah: $2K

—————-

PP/Express Round: PLACE

Mark first wants a $3,500 T, but there aren’t any. Second, Akilah uncovers a $350 N, two R’s for $1,600, two I’s, four E’s, three S’s for another $900, and four A’s to clean out the vowels. But her next spin is the BANKRUPT near $650 to wipe out $2,100. Barbara then puts up an $800 P, and three D’s for a quadrupler…

S E A S I D E
_ A R D E N
P A R A D I S E

…she’s going to a SEASIDE GARDEN PARADISE — the Grand Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort in JAMAICA; total that round is $10,399 (including that NEX-5T).

SOLE DUD: T (Mark)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Akilah (second of the game)

Scores after R3
Barbara: $15,740 cash & prizes/Mark: $8,450 cash & trip/Akilah: $2K

——————-

$3K Tossup: CHARACTER

_ _ _ _ E R
G O O S _

MOTHER GOOSE puts Mark closer to the lead.

Round 4: PHRASE

His opening letters are two T’s for a grand, an O, two E’s, and a $1,400 pair of H’s, but he then repeats a letter for the second time tonight (it’s the O). Second for Akilah are a $650 S and the other BANKRUPT (that’s her third one this game). Third in line, Barbara claims an $800 N, a $650 R, and a couple I’s, then we have…

R _ _ E / T O / T H E
_ I N I S H

In this RACE TO THE FINISH, Barbara adds another $1,200 to her lead.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Akilah
SOLE DQ: Mark’s O repeat

Scores after R4
Barbara: $16,949 cash & prizes/Mark: $11,450 cash & trip/Akilah: $2K

Round 5: LANDMARK (full $1,500 speed-up)

Barbara mistakenly cheered when looking at Mark’s arrow (it was on $5K) instead of her own one. Anyway, three L’s have been put up…

_ _ _ _ T _ L
_ _ L L

Mark gets CAPITOL HILL for $4,500; if only he didn’t make that repeat in the last round…

SOLE DUD: N (Akilah)

FINAL SCORES
Barbara: $16,949 cash & prizes/Mark: $15,950 cash & Beaches/Akilah: $2K

GRAND TOTAL: $34,899
BANKRUPT TRASH: $5,750

——————

$100K Bonus Round
Barbara is all by herself, and she picks up the ***.

Category: THING
This is what people go though after applying for a job…

_ _ R _ N _
_ R _ _ E S S 

PMDA only adds…

_ _ R _ N _
P R _ _ E S S

…she doesn’t get either part of the answer, so she’s been REJECTED in this HIRING PROCESS and will not be driving away in the VW Eos Convertible.

    Not a good way to begin the week with a Loss in Bonus Round. An I would been nice. Based on this: My rating for this episode: 4

    Actually Antwan the best combo would've been Andy's BGHO (G's a waste though).
