$1K Tossup: PHRASE

_ E _ T / A _ D
R _ _ _ X _ T I O N

Bob has some REST AND RELAXATION. This is the first panel this season w/ two men competing…

Bob Abrams: instructional leader of math and science at Ridge East HS from New Lenox, IL
Alfred Terrado: licensed practical nurse and volleyball/tennis player from Forest Hills in Queens, NY
Kira Schmart: helps out various animals and makes donations to related charities from North Hollywood, CA


_ _ M B O O

Kira grows a BAMBOO PLANT for control.

FEATURED SPA TRIP: Westin Maui Resort & Spa Ka’anapali worth $6,640 (all of these non-PP trips this week are provided by SpaFinder.com)

Jackpot Round: SONG LYRICS

Kira gets going w/ a $500 N, three I’s, but then S for sorry. Second, Bob instantly BANKRUPTS on the MDW’s left side. Third, Alfred calls up a $500 G, two Jackpot T’s to triple up, but then L for loss. Kira tries again w/ two R’s for $600, four O’s, but then the BANKRUPT near the WC to lose $600. Bob follows suit w/ two D’s and Y’s at $600 a pop…

_ _ _ R Y T _ I N G
I / D O
I / D O / I T

…he solves Bryan Adams’ “(EVERYTHING I DO), I DO IT FOR YOU” for $2,400.

DUDS: S (Kira), L (Alfred)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Bob, Kira)

Scores after R1
Alfred: $0/Kira: $2K/Bob: $3,400



Bob quickly duds out w/ T. Second, Alfred plugs in two D’s for $1,200 and a couple A’s, but he then BANKRUPTS on the same side of the MDW to forfeit $950. Third, Kira puts up two N’s for the blue 1/2 KIA (as of this episode, $500 gets awarded when somebody picks up one of the plates; it was NOT multiplied, however), two FP E’s, but no more w/ L while on the Hawaii trip. Bob then lights up three R’s for $500 and the other 1/2 KIA, four S’s for $2K, and a pair of O’s…

 …he wins another $2,250 and will meet some SKIERS AND SNOWBOARDERS on his trip to the Greek Peak Mountain Resort in CORTLAND, NY worth $5,880.

DUDS: T (Bob), L (Kira)
Scores after R2
Alfred: ZIPPO/Kira: $3K/Bob: $11,530 cash & skiing + 1/2 KIA


Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Alfred’s first w/ two S’s for $1,100 and a T via the MW near LaT. He obviously goes for it since he’s way behind…but the BANKRUPT won’t help him at all; that’s his second one this game. Kira secondly duds out w/ N while on the same 1/2 KIA Bob got in the last round. That man’s third in line w/ a $600 R, three A’s, two L’s for a grand, triple E’s, four C’s for $1,200 more, and an M for the MDW. He then gives up his chance at the Soul…

C A S T / A
M A _ _ C
S _ E L L
C _ E C _ E R

CAST A MAGIC SPELL CHECKER is right for $2,300.

SOLE DUD: N (Kira)

Scores after R3
Alfred: BAD LUCK/Kira: $2K/Bob: $13,830 cash & skiing + MDW


 $3K Tossup: SHOW BIZ

_ _ S T A N T
_ _ _ L A _

Kira barely beats the time’s up signal w/ INSTANT REPLAY.

Round 4: WAYD?

Her opening letters are a $500 N, two G’s for $1,600, an I and two O’s, then she says a $300 D, two A’s, a $900 L, and three E’s before the LaT gets her. Bob’s next w/ two T’s for $900 and a $500 S before we shift into Speed-Up Mode…

S E T T I N G / A
G O O D / E _ A _ _ L E

…the three leftover consonants are worth $1,600 apiece. He spots the X…

S E T T I N G/ A
G O O D / E X A _ _ L E

…and he’s SETTING A GOOD EXAMPLE of getting a chance to play for $1M, because he’s added $3K worth of icing on his cake!

SOLE LaT: Kira

Alfred: $1K GOOSEEGG/Kira: $5K/Bob: $16,830 cash & skiing + MDW

GT: $22,830


He lands on that apostrophe.

Category: THINGS
Pretty good head start…

_ _ T E – S _ _ E
_ _ E _ E S

CDHA only adds…

_ _ T E – S _ _ E
_ _ E C E S

…but he still eats up these BITE-SIZE PIECES of his favorite candy…

…and he’s $40K richer for a final total of $56,830 cash & ski trip!


MY EP. RATING: 8 out of 10

    Good episode. Did you notice Bob's score was a little weird in R2? Instead of $250 being subtracted from his total, it was added.
