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.

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.
