Kelly is incorrect w/ JOHNNY CASH. Wonoh capitalizes again w/ JOHNNY DEPP.

FEATURED AA: The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek Mountain in CO worth $5,835

Jackpot Round: FICTIONAL CHARACTERS

Wonoh first takes control w/ two T’s for the blue 1/2 KIA, and obvious A at the start, a FP O, and a $500 F for the other 1/2 KIA (she tried to pick it up before calling that consonant). After that are a $500 Jackpot T, two I’s, a $400 R, two E’s, and three P’s in that important last word for $900…

PR!
UNCLAIMED JACKPOT: $7,700

Scores after R1
Wonoh: $20,550 cash & car/Others: $0 each

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Phil’s rundown is made up of four T’s for the CO trip, two H’s for $1,600, four E’s and an A, and a G while on the MW near LaT. Despite the fact that he’s way behind, he wants the money for that consonant (too bad; that was the $10K). Afterwards, he puts in two S’s for $1,200, five I’s, a C for the WC, the last vowel of O, a $2,700 trio of R’s, a $900 P and a $300 M before he finally goes for the solve…

…there will never be a headline titled “”THE PRICE IS RIGHT’ TO REMAIN SILENT”, but he’s won $12,535 cash & ski trip.

PR #2!

Scores after R2
Phil: $12,535 cash & ski trip/Kelly: $0/Wonoh: $20,550 cash & car

PP Round: FOOD & DRINK

Hoping for a good round, Kelly kicks off w/ a $1K pair of S’s, two T’s for the Bed and Breakfast.com gift tag, an E and three A’s, two L’s to add $1,800, but then the
LaT. Wonoh secondly BANKRUPTS near TD. Third, Phil calls up three R’s for $900, buys two I’s, but also LaTs out. Kelly then BANKRUPTS the same way Wonoh did to forfeit $3,300 in cash & GT, allowing said blue player to solve…

The third time’s the charm for Kelly, as she solves FLEECE EARMUFFS.

Round 4: FICTIONAL PLACE

Her opening letters are two T’s and an H at $500 a pop, two E’s, but then a bad vowel of A. Second for Wonoh are a $300 F, three O’s to wipe out the vowels aready, a $350 N, but then the same normal BANKRUPT to take away $400. Third, Phil gets his second LaT of the game, allowing Kelly to put up a $600 D before we go into Speed-Up Mode…

T H E / T O _ N
O F / _ E D _ O _ _

…w/ a $1,300 Final Spin. Next from her mouth’s a B…

she’s another victim of the QU- trick even though she got the second word. That means she won’t be going to some QUAINT SHOPS w/ another $40K.
