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…

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…

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