$1K Tossup: PERSON

S M _ _ _
C O O K _ E

Morgan’s a SMART COOKIE for now. Let’s get to know all of these people…

Morgan de Haro-Brown: 2nd year student at the University of Wyoming College of Law and a Peace Corps volunteer in Moldova from ’08-’10 from Laramie, WY (orig. from Durango, CO)
Jason Steger: Director of Music & Youth at Jacob’s Well Church in Green Bay from Kimberly, WI
Teja Veal: full-time bass guitar player and graphic designer who studied at the University of Miami-FL from Smyrna, GA

$2K Tossup: RHYME TIME

_ _ A V O R
S _ V E _

Teja says she’s a FLAVOR SAVER.

FEATURED CULINARY TRIP: Hilton Molino Stucky Venice worth $9,974

Jackpot Round: OCCUPATIONS

Teja’s starters are four Jackpot S’s and four E’s, then she hits the MDW’s right side to lose $1,750. Second, Morgan calls up two T’s for $1,200, three A’s, two N’s for the green 1/2 KIA, but next is a dud vowel of O. Third, Jason puts in two $600 D’s, the last vowel of I, and a $500 B…

B A _ T E N D E _ S / A N D
_ A I T _ E S S E S

…he solves BARTENDERS AND WAITRESSES for $1,450 when he could’ve gone for the R’s.

SOLE DUD: O (Morgan)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Teja
UNCLAIMED JACKPOT: $7,700

Mystery Round: QUOTATION (big puzzle alert)

Here goes Morgan w/ four S’s for $1,600, two E’s, five A’s and three O’s; she follows w/ five T’s for $3K more, the rest of the vowel dept. (two I’s and a U), and six H’s to reclaim the 1/2 KIA she couldn’t keep. Here’s what we have so far (and we get a shot of her instead of the board)…

T H E / _ A _ / T O / A
_ A _ ‘ S / H E A _ T
I S / T H _ O U _ H
H I S / S T O _ A _ H

…she says all parts of the answer…problem is, she replaced THE w/ A, so that’s gonna cost her that same plate and $6,350 more. Jason doesn’t do any better w/ the BANKRUPT near the WC. Teja then puts up a $600 W and two M’s for the Venice trip…

T H E / W A _ / T O / A
M A _ ‘ S / H E A _ T
I S / T H _ O U _ H
H I S / S T O M A _ H

…she exactly recites THE WAY TO A MAN’S HEART IS THROUGH HIS STOMACH” for a total of $10,574 cash & Italy this round.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Jason
SOLE DQ: Morgan’s blown solve

Scores after R2
Teja: $12,574 cash & Italy/Morgan: $1K/Jason: $1,450

PP Round: TITLE 

Jason says an automatic negative of N. Teja secondly LaTs out. Morgan thirdly calls up a $600 T, two E’s, two H’s for $1,800 more, and a $900 trio of L’s. She tries to redeem herself right now…

_ H / T H E / _ L _ _ E _
_ _ _ ‘ L L / _ _

…she solves Dr. Seuss’ “OH THE PLACES YOU’LL GO” for $3,050 more and a Hotwire trip to the Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa in ST. LUCIA worth $7,455.

_ _ A _ _ _ G _ S

Morgan sees some PINK FLAMINGOS to take the lead.

Round 4: IN THE KITCHEN

She gets up there a $550 T, a $900 S, two I’s and an A before getting the LaT. Second, Jason FPs a dud vowel of E, puts up a $400 R and a $20K N quartet, but we hear the bell for S-U Mode…

N _ N S T I _ _
_ R _ I N _ / _ A N

…and the remaining six consonants are worth $1,300. His next call is a P…

N _ N S T I _ _
_ R _ I N _ / P A N

…but he STILL DOESN’T know it for $21,700; oh boy. Teja then inserts the K…

N _ N S T I _ K
_ R _ I N _ / P A N

…and solves NONSTICK FRYING PAN.

SOLE DUD (before bell): E (Jason)
SOLE LaT: Morgan

Category: PHRASE
I’ve got the first word already…

_ R _ _ E
& / _ _ _

HCDA doesn’t add to much…

_ R _ D E
& / _ _ _

but she’ll be the PRIDE & JOY of her town, because she just won $45K for a final total of $59,505 cash & trip!

    No offense, but too bad Morgan wasn't on the previous show or that DURANGO COLORADO wasn't on this one. She sure made a good run after that mishap.
