Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

C & J get started w/ two N’s for $1,800, a T for the SS, and five E’s. But after an $800 H is the BANKRUPT near $650 to wipe out $10,350 cash & SS. Second, the men take a $500 R, three O’s and a FP A, and a $1K pair of Y’s before they get the same BANKRUPT to give back $1,250. Down T & S’s path third are a $700 K, a $650 P, the last vowel of U, but then M for mistake. After C & J LaT out, the men say two L’s for $1,300, an $800 B…but then a FATAL DUD of S while on TD.

K E E P / Y O U R

PP/Express Round: PLACES

The guys are off to a $10,500 start w/ three T’s, then they buy three E’s, triple A’s and an I, plug in a $1,600 H pair, but then BANKRUPT on the MDW’s left side to let $11,350 disappear. Moving on to T & S who put in a $500 N and three $600 M’s, then they see…

T H E / M _ _ T
A M A _ I N _
T H E M E / _ A _ _ _

…they make the $2,300 solve and will see THE MOST AMAZING THEME PARKS on their trips to the Gaylord Palms Resort in FLORIDA worth $12,492. 

SOLE BANKRUPT: the men

T & S: $26,492 cash & FL/Everybody else: GOOSEEGG ALERT

————— 

$3K Tossup: THING

T R _ _ _ L
C O F F _ _ / _ U G

T & S are still perfect after solving TRAVEL COFFEE MUG.

Speed-Up Round: EVENT

The consonants pay off at $1,800 a pop. Three H’s get put up midway in the round, but the men can only say “I love peanut butter” (I’m not counting that as a DQ). C & J put up twin G’s on their next turn…

T _ _ H N _ _ _ G _ _ _ _
B R _ _ _ T H R _ _ G H

…but they say TECHNOLOGY BREAKTHROUGH, which is too short; they likely threw away their only $9K payoff on the night. The men then call out those C’s…

T _ C H N _ _ _ G _ C _ _
B R _ _ _ T H R _ _ G H

…they finally avoid getting gooseegged w/ a $9K TECHNOLOGICAL BREAKTHROUGH.

SOLE DUD: S (men)
DQs: 2 (T & S’s S repeat and C & J’s blown solve)

FINAL SCORES
Men: $9K/T & S: $29,492 cash & FL/C & J: $2K GOOSEEGG

GT: $40,492
BANKRUPT TRASH: $22,950 cash & SS

Just these two letters to start…

_ _ _ _ N _
_ _ _ _ _ L _

GMDA will NOT add much besides the obvious G…

M _ _ _ N G
_ _ _ _ _ L _

…and they’re not even close w/ MAKING ________ when the A’s already dead. They aren’t MOVING QUICKLY enough to win the $45K.
 
$5K SPIN ID: RD5285513

MY EP. RATING: 6 (those $10K+ BANKRUPTS brought it down for me)
