Jackpot Round: LANDMARK

Her first spin’s the BANKRUPT near the WC. Second, Justin calls up a $900 R, two E’s, a $500 S, and two T’s for the green 1/2 KIA, followed by three L’s for $2,400 more, three A’s, and three FP O’s. We now have…

…he solves YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK for $4,300.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Lou
UNCLAIMED JACKPOT: $8,200

Brian: $0/Lou: $2K/Justin: $5,300 1/2 KIA

Mystery Round: WAYD? 

Justin instantly gets his second 1/2 KIA from the same spot w/ three N’s, three I’s, but then the LaT. Second, Brian BANKRUPTS the same way Lou did in the last round. That lady’s third in line w/ two G’s for the MW near the MDW and she turns down the $2K offer for…her second BANKRUPT this game. Back to Justin who buys an O, plugs in two $300 C’s, but then hits the other normal BANKRUPT to let $16,600 cash & Soul disappear. Brian then puts up four T’s for the NYC trip and two H’s for $1,600 in spending money…

_ _ T T I N G / T H _
I C I N G / O N / T H _

…he’s PUTTING THE ICING ON THE CAKE.

PP Round: THING

Brian’s off and running w/ two N’s for $600, a $900 trio of L’s, five E’s, and four A’s to clean out the vowels already, then he says two pairs of D’s and H’s ($350 and $300, respectively) before getting the same BANKRUPT Justin got to forfeit $2,300. After a $1,200 pair of S’s by Lou

H A N D _ A D E

…she can use that money to buy a HANDMADE SEASHELL NECKLACE on her $6K trip to the Makena Beach & Golf Resort in MAUI.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Brian

Brian: $9,500 cash & NYC/Lou: $9,200 cash & HI/Justin: $5,300

$3K Tossup: SHOW BIZ

_ _ U N _ _ _ / M _ _ _ C
_ _ T I S _

Blake Shelton is one such example of this, and Justin knows that’s a COUNTRY MUSIC ARTIST to move to $8,300.

Round 4: AROUND THE HOUSE

First for him are two L’s for $900, three E’s, but then his second LaT of the evening. Brian secondly BANKRUPTS next to the old WC spot, his third of the game. Going down Lou’s path third are a $1K pair of T’s, an A, and her second LaT as well. Back to Justin who says $2,700 worth of three R’s and triple O’s…

_ _ _ _ E R _ A L
R E _ O T E / _ O _ T R O L

SOLE BANKRUPT: Brian
LaTs: (Brian’s opponents)

Brian: $9,500 cash & NYC/Lou: $9,200 cash & HI/Justin: $11,400

Round 5: PHRASE

Big Brian gets going w/ a $300 T and N, but his next call of L stops him. Second in Lou’s favor are a $600 S, two U’s, but then a questionable call of J. Following Justin’s second BANKRUPT of the game next to the vacant WC spot, Brian puts up three M’s for $1,500 and we go into S-U Mode w/ the following…

_ _ U / M U S T / _ _ _ _
_ _ _ _ / M _ / M _ N _

…and the consonants left over are worth $1,350 each. Two D’s come from his mouth next…

_ _ U / M U S T / _ _ _ _
_ _ _ D / M _ / M _ N D

…but he has nothing for $4,800 and the win. Lou’s next w/ two Y’s…

Y _ U / M U S T / _ _ _ _
_ _ _ D / M Y / M _ N D

same negative result. After two E’s by Brian…

Y _ U / M U S T / _ _ _E
_ E _ D / M Y / M I N D

he draws another blank. Lou thinks she’s got it after calling the R…

Y _ U / M U S T / _ _ _ E
R E _ D / M Y / M I N D

still nothing; ugh. Justin then puts up the H…

Y _ U / M U S T / H _ _ E
R E _ D / M Y / M I N D

yet again, nothing. Does Brian finally end this nightmare after a V call…

Y _ U / M U S T / H _ V E
R E _ D / M Y / M I N D

yes w/ “YOU MUST HAVE READ MY MIND” for $6,150!
