Amy Lazzaro: special ed teacher at the Deasy School in Glen Cove who’s also a savvy shopper (how appropriate) from Nesconset, NY
Jodrell Walker II: Art Institute of Atlanta student who’s planning to get his Bachelor’s Degree in audio production from Atlanta (orig. from Columbia, SC)
Becky Cotton: slow cooker from Murrieta, CA

$2K Tossup: LIVING THINGS

_ U L I P S / A N D

Becky gathers some TULIPS AND IRISES for control.

FEATURED SS: BeyondtheRack

Jackpot Round: PROPER NAME

She’s off and running w/ three N’s for $1,200, two E’s, a $300 T, but then a bad I purchase. Second, Amy calls up two H’s for $1,100, an A, but then M for mistake. Third, Jodrell spots a $300 W, a $550 R, and three O’s to clean out the vowel shop, but he LOSES A TURN following a $300 C. Becky then tries to solve for the house minimum…

_ W A _ N E
T H E / R O C _
_ O H N _ O N

…she IDs DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON.

DUDS: I (Becky), M (Amy)
SOLE LaT: Jodrell
UNCLAIMED JACKPOT: $8,200

Becky: $3K/Amy: $1K/Jodrell: $0

—————

Mystery Round: SONG/ARTIST

Getting Amy started are two $300 R’s and six E’s, but next is the BANKRUPT near TD to lose $350. Jodrell secondly spins LaT for the second straight time. Third, Becky picks up a $10,500 T trio, two A’s and O’s, a $1,500 Y trio for the blue 1/2 KIA and the leftover vowel singles. Those are followed by a $450 K, two H’s for the Bookperk gift tag, two $1K B’s via the MW next to LaT (that was the $10K one), a $500 V…but then a MAJOR DUD of N. After Amy hits the MDW’s left side

E V E R Y / B R E A T H

Jodrell solves “EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE” BY THE POLICE. Becky’s late blunder costs her $14,950 cash & books plus that plate.

PP Round: PHRASE

First for this guy are a $450 M, three I’s, two N’s for another $600, and two O’s, followed by a G for the same 1/2 KIA but then E for error. Becky secondly runs into the other normal BANKRUPT. Third, Amy picks a $500 T, buys the last vowel of two A’s…

I ‘ M / _ _ O A T I N G
O N / A I _

…she replies “I’M FLOATING ON AIR”, because she’s won the leftover $250 and a Hotwire.com trip to the Iberostar Bavaro in the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC worth $5,725.

SOLE DUD: E (Jodrell)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Becky

Becky: $3K/Amy: $6,975 cash & D.R./Jodrell: $1K

    Too bad Jodrell didn't win, because I'm an aspiring music producer. Nice job by Becky making that comeback though!
