Dana finally gets her chance, but she’s off to a bad start w/ S. Ashley’s second in line w/ two T’s for $1,300, three E’s, a $500 R and a single A, then come two N’s for $1,800, triple O’s, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to lose $2,850. Third, Nick puts in two F’s for a grand, two M’s for $600 and two I’s to clean out the vowels. After those picks are a $500 G, a $600 H, a $350 P, but then the other normal BANKRUPT to clean him out of $2,800 and the WC…

Dana’s off by a letter w/ A REAL CHARGER and this should be our FOURTH AND FINAL TRIPLE STUMPER of the season. The answer was A REAL CHARMER, but Ashley will still kick off that next round despite not buzzing in.

    Wow, a NEW record for Triple Stumpers…everyone did OK at least. And I don't like saying this but why they picked Ashley to be the blogger is beyond me…should've been Molly.

    I agree. Even most of the $100K winners last season weren't the bloggers — Cat Doebler (cleaned up in Jackpot Round), Cindy Kling (new non-million record), Jeff Ellingson (confetti came very late) and Tasha Trujillo (could've won the $10K MW and the Sonic)

    Wow. But they'd put most of the biggest winners of the season before Molly on the blogs. Very unfair.

    Like Pat said, it (the Bonus Puzzle) was meant to be for Ashley…she's a big fan of the Beatles.
