Round 1: WAYD?

He wastes a spin w/ the MDW’s right side. Second, Mindy calls up a $650 N, an obvious G for the gift tag, and two E’s, before she becomes the first LaT victim of the night. Third, Lisa says S for sorry while on TD. Adam next has the same result w/ B, so we’re quickly back to Mindy. She puts in $700 R and T singles, two O’s, but no more w/ L. Lisa then says a $900 C, an I, four D’s for another $3,200, two A’s to round out the vowels, an F for the WA trip, an H for the MDW and a Y for the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900. Here’s the board…

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER 

Mindy first FPs an E, picks up the WC w/ three N’s, buys two A’s, and collects both 1/2ves of the Versa w/ four T’s and a D, respectively (she got the one near the pink $900 first). Following those picks are I and O singles, a $600 G, a $500 L, a $700 H, and the last vowel of U…but she’s still stumped on the first word, so next up are an $800 F, a $500 C, and a PAINFUL LaT to let over $21K cash & Versa slip away. Afterwards, Lisa SPINGLES for a $900 B…
