After an edit, the middle lady starts w/ a $600 R but then the sole dud vowel of A for awful. Jerod secondly picks up the WC w/ an S, three S’s for $2,400, and an I, then he wastes a FP usage w/ the A and BANKRUPTS near the now-vacant WC spot to give that up and $2,150. Third, Erin FPs a U and spots two H’s for the green 1/2 KIA

Third, Jeannetta spots a TD W and two I’s, but the MDW’s left side stops by to flush away $3,250. Jerod restarts w/ two M’s for a grand and twin G’s to x8 up, but the C stops him while he’s on the same 1/2 KIA. Erin follows w/ two TD P’s, a $400 N, and an O, but that same non-MDW BANKRUPT strikes again to the tune of her plate and $7,750; both she and Jerod have two of those so far. As for Jeannetta
