Margaux’s won control w/ A FRIEND TO THE END.

Jackpot Round: PERSON

Her starters are a Jackpot T, an E buy, a $400 R, but then N for no. Ed secondly tries to pick up the MDW w/ an H, but that’s also a dud. Third for Lauren are a $2,200 C quartet, two L’s for the WC, and five O’s…

Lauren then gets this round over w/…

_ R O _ E N / T _

The lady near Pat begins w/ a $300 T, two S’s for the gas card, two R’s for $1,800 more, and twin A’s, then she says a $300 N, four L’s for $1,800 more, two I’s, a $600 K, three E’s, and two $300 M’s before she faces this…

I T ‘ S / L I K E

CDHA pretty much gives her the second word…

_ _ C _ E R
C H A _ R

PICNIC CHAIR is sooo wrong, but she’ll relax in her WICKER CHAIR (if she owns one) w/ the extra $30K, so away she goes as a $50K winner.

Overall this week, we gave away a total of $304,015 in cash & prizes!

    Despite that bad moment in R2, everyone did well – this episode and this week! Goes to show that it ain't over till it's REALLY over.
