EPISODE #5622: GOING GREEN (PORTLAND)

$1K Tossup: AROUND THE HOUSE

R _ _ Y C _ _ _ G
_ I N

Kyle solves RECYCLING BIN. And he’s not the only man on the panel…

Kyle Hibbert: Portland State University senior majoring in Math who’s hoping to be a HS Math teacher from Beaverton, OR 
Tiffany Focht: freelance videographer/part-time bank teller who’s engaged to Jacob and has driven across the country in three days from GA to OR from Madras, OR
Phil Baker: technical supervisor for a major telephone company, triathlete & home brewer from Vancouver, WA

$2K Tossup: PLACES 

_ I _ E – O P E N
S _ _ C E S

Kyle finds himself in some WIDE-OPEN SPACES so he’s tripled up.

ECO-FRIENDLY TRIP: Jungle Day in Dominica from Green Earth Travel worth $7,562

Jackpot Round: WAYD?

To start, Kyle FPs two A’s but then hits the MDW’s right side. Second, Tiffany calls two N’s for $800, but she and Phil both BANKRUPT near the WC. On Kyle’s third spin, he gets the same MDW BANKRUPT from before. Back to Tiffany who puts up two G’s for $1,100, an I and three E’s, two R’s for $600 more, an $800 F and four O’s, then come a TD D, a T for the Green Mountain Coffee gift tag but then the same normal BANKRUPT to throw away $5,250 cash & coffee. Phil then picks up the WC w/ an L, and lights up the leftover $300 V and a $350 C before we mercifully see…

V O L U N T E E R I N G
F O R / A
G O O D / C A U S E

…since he’s VOLUNTEERING FOR A GOOD CAUSE, he gets a $150 bonus.

BANKRUPTS: 5 (twice by Kyle and Tiffany) 
UNCLAIMED JACKPOT: $10,900

Tiffany: $0/Phil: $1K WC/Kyle: $3K

—————–

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Tiffany’s taken three T’s via the MW near that MDW and turns down the $3K offer…for the biggie! Next up are three $900 N’s, two I’s, three A’s, a FP E at the start, a D for the green 1/2 KIA, a $500 P and four O’s to wipe out the vowels before she sees…

E _ _ _ A _ A T I O N
P O I N T
A N D / _ _ O O T

…she does the EXCLAMATION POINT AND SHOOT for $12,950!

PR!

Tiffany: $12,950 1/2 KIA/Phil: $1K WC/Kyle: $3K

—————

PP Round: FOOD & DRINK 

Phil’s forced to give up his WC right away, because of the BANKRUPT near TD. Kyle secondly spins his way to two FP E’s, a $300 N, but then the same BANKRUPT. Third for Tiffany are two R’s for $1,200, three T’s to double up, but then the sole dud vowel of I. Phil next says four C’s for $2,200, the rest of the vowels, a $1,200 S quartet, and a TD D but that same pesky BANKRUPT gets him again to the tune of $6,150; both men have three BANKRUPTS apiece. Kyle doesn’t want to take any chances…
