Collin: $9,250/Ashley: $0/Mike: $1K
Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Ashley’s first letter of T is a no-no. Second, Mike plugs in a $300 R, two S’s to add a grand and the green 1/2 KIA, six E’s, and two N’s via the MW near LaT. He’s putting $1,050 and his plate on the line…and the $10K is there! Following his purchase of two O’s, he puts up two $600 V’s, an I, and three L’s for the WC…but he then says a possibly fatal dud of C. Collin doesn’t do any better w/ F. Ashley next picks up the Bookperk gift tag w/ three H’s but LaTs out just as quick, opening up the door for Mike…

PP Round: WAYD?
Unfortunately for Mike, he’s giving up those cardboard pieces right away to the BANKRUPT near TD. Collin secondly takes three $300 N’s, two G’s to turn the $900 into $2K, the obvious I’s, and three A’s, but he then says an unfortunate dud of S while on TD. Down Ashley’s path third are two R’s for $800, three L’s for $2,700, and the leftover vowels before we look at…

…AND HE’S THE EIGHTH (and hopefully final) $100K LOSER OF THE SEASON. BGHO would’ve done it for him big time.
If you’re reading this, Michael Taylor, you really need to shut your big fat mouth about this incident. He’s been giving me headaches of technical wins on $100K losses.
MY EP. RATING: 5
