WOF Recap: October 9, 2014

EPISODE #6064: SHOPPING SPREE

$1K Tossup: THING

I N S _ A N T
_ _ _ _ _ _

Jackie’s guess is NOT an INSTANT WINNER at all.

I N S T A N T
R E _ A T E

Dan somehow has the INSTANT REBATE. Thursday’s threesome…

Dan Dibley: former sports-talk radio and helicopter weather personality as well as a marathon runner from Oakland
Tensie Taylor: USC graduate in education and piano player from L.A. (orig. from Louisburg, NC)
Jackie Dill: attorney/CPA from OKC

$2K Tossup: PEOPLE

_ R _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ D
_ _ I G _ B O _ _

Tensie recalls her FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS.

FEATURED SS: RetailMeNot

Round 1: PHRASE

Her letter-calling spree begins w/ three FP E’s, two T’s for the WC, and the obvious twin H’s for $1,300, but the sole dud vowel of O stops her. Second, Jackie calls up three R’s for $1,950, buys three A’s and an I, but then hits the MDW’s right side to lose the $1,450 remainder. Third, Dan puts up a $700 N, the last vowel of U, a $900 G, and an $800 L, but here comes the BANKRUPT near $650 to take away $2,150. Tensie then puts up a $1,200 S pairing…

_ A R E L _
S _ R A T _ H I N G
T H E / S U R _ A _ E

…and she’s BARELY SCRATCHING THE SURFACE for $3,250.

SOLE DUD: O (Tensie)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (other players)

Jackie: $0/Dan: $1K/Tensie: $5,250 WC

————-

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER 

Jackie’s up first w/ an $1,800 trio of N’s, but then a bad E buy. Second, Dan says T for terrible while on the MW near LaT. Third, Tensie inserts a $700 S, two I’s, and a $1,300 G pair, but the same MDW BANKRUPT forces her to give up $1,750 and the WC. Back to Jackie who FPs a W, buys the A and O singles to clean out the vowels, and calls up a D while on the other MW. That $1,550 flip of hers is worth…NOTHING. After Dan gets the same BANKRUPT he got before, Tensie puts in a $1,400 pair of C’s, a FP L, and a $500 H, but the same normal BANKRUPT strikes again to rid her of $2,400 that time. Jackie then SPINGLES for a P and the SS…

P O _ C H
S W I N G
D A N C I N G

PORCH SWING DANCING is probably too dangerous, but she’s on the board w/ $6,500 cash & SS.

DUDS: E (Jackie), T (Dan)
BANKRUPTS: 4 (Tensie 2x)

Jackie: $6,500 cash & SS/Dan: $1K/Tensie: $5,250

————–

PP/Express Round: WAYD? 

Dan wastes a turn w/ the other MDW BANKRUPT. Second for Tensie are three G’s for $1,950, four N’s for $2,800, and four I’s, but the sole dud vowel of O fails her for the second time tonight. Third, Jackie gets up there a $650 S, two R’s for $1,800, and the rest of the vowels…

_ R I N G I N G
A N / E _ _ R A
_ A _ _ I N G / S U I _

…she should be BRINGING AN EXTRA BATHING SUIT, because she’s won $1,700 and a hotwire trip to the Outrigger Reef in HAWAII worth $6,934.

SOLE DUD: O (Tensie)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Dan

Jackie: $15,134 cash & prizes/Dan: $1K/Tensie: $5,250

————-

$3K Tossup: PROPER NAME

_ E _ N _ _ E R
A N _ S T O _

Dan IDs former “Friends” actress JENNIFER ANISTON to quadruple up.

Speed-Up Round: EVENT

The consonants are worth $1,600 a pop. He starts w/ two S’s…

S _ _ _ _ _ S _
_ _ _ _ _ _

…he’s way off the mark w/ SURPRISE BIRTHDAY. He gets another crack at it after buying the E’s for free…

S _ R P R _ S E
E _ _ _ _ _ 

…but he blows it again w/ SURPRISE EASTER and SURPRISE EARRING. After the D pops up…

S _ R P R _ S E
E N D _ N _

…this is somewhat of a SURPRISE ENDING — Jackie makes the $3,200 solve.

DQs: 3 (Dan’s blown solves)

FINAL SCORES
Jackie: $18,334 cash & prizes/Dan: $4K/Tensie: $5,250 

GT: $27,584
BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding WC): $9,300

Category: THING
The starting help…

_ N / _ _ N _ E

FDGA adds besides the obvious F and A…
