WOF Recap: Thanksgiving 2014

Sorry for the delay of this report but I think you understand why — I did a little Black Fri. shopping tonight.

EPISODE #6099: AMERICA’S GAME (WK. 1)

Appropriately enough, we’re on the “Shopping Spree” set.

$1K Tossup: WAYD?

T A _ _ _ N G
_ U R _ _ Y

Patty Jo isn’t TALKING TURKEY; she wants to do some serious winning as do her contestants whom we’re interviewing right now…

Patty Jo Ferraro: general organizer at Casey Key beach resort from Nokomis, FL
Art Topchyan: attorney & six-month newlywed from Glendale, CA
Nicki Cornelius: insurance co. worker in marketing, former cheerleading coach & newlywed to an Army Cpt. from Seattle

$2K Tossup: ON THE MAP

_ _ _ A _ _
_ E _ / _ _ _ K

Art locates ALBANY, NEW YORK.

FEATURED COLLETTE TRIP: Wild West adventure in Wyoming worth $7,758 (wow, a ski trip to the state last night and now this)

Round 1: BEFORE & AFTER

N for no is how Art starts. Second, Nicki calls up a $900 S but BANKRUPTS near TD just as quick. Third, Patty Jo puts in five T’s for $3K, four E’s and O’s, an $800 R (this might be a re-shoot of a spin from last night), two L’s for $1,600 and the rest of the vowels. Following a $2,700 trio of R’s…

T O O T S I E R O L L
O U T / T _ E
R E _ / _ A R _ E T

…she solves “TOOTSIE ROLL OUT THE RED CARPET” for $7,050.

SOLE DUD: N (Art)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Nicki

Nicki: $0/Patty Jo: $7,050/Art: $2K

——————

Mystery Round: FOOD & DRINK

Nicki first uncovers three S’s for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900, four T’s for another $3,600, an E, a $600 R, an H for the other 1/2 CAR, two N’s for $1,200 and an A single, followed by a $650 B, four U’s, a $600 Q and a $1K pair of F’s before she finally goes for the big solve…

B U T T E R N U T
S Q U A S H
S T U F F _ N _

…she eats some BUTTERNUT SQUASH STUFFING for $8,900 and the 2015 Chevrolet Spark worth $14,734 (includes paint/fabric protection) for a total of $23,634 in that round alone!

MAJOR PR!

Nicki: $23,634 cash & Spark/Patty Jo: $7,050/Art: $2K

————

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Patty Jo has in insta-BANKRUPT on the MDW’s right side. Second, Art FPs the first letter of his name, captures a $1,300 pair of N’s, buys four E’s, but then duds out w/ P while on the WC. Third, Nicki gets the gas card w/ an S, three I’s but then the LaT. Back to Patty Jo who finds two K’s for $1,600, the other two vowels (the U was said on FP), two TD W’s, three $600 M’s, and two $700 G’s before she…

I / K N O W / W _ E _ E
I ‘ M / G O I N G / _ O _
S U M M E _ / _ _ E A K

…replies “I KNOW WHERE I’M GOING FOR SUMMER BREAK” for $11,550 and a trip to the Maruba Resort Jungle Spa in BELIZE worth $7,520; she just vaulted into the lead w/ a $19,070 round!

SOLE DUD: P (Art)
SOLE LaT: Nicki
SOLE BANKRUPT: Patty Jo

Nicki: $23,634 cash & Spark/Patty Jo: $26,120 cash & Belize/Art: $2K 

————-

$3K Tossup: FUN & GAMES

_ H O W / _ N D
_ _ _ L

Art solves SHOW AND TELL to get to $5K.

Speed-Up Round: SHOW BIZ

For the third time this week, we have a $1,700 FS. After two V’s pop up…

O N L _ N _
M O V _ _ / R _ V _ _ _

…how can we say Art ended up dead last when he solves ONLINE MOVIE REVIEW for $8,500?

DUDS: T (Nicki), S (Patty Jo), D (Nicki), P (Art)

FINAL SCORES
Nicki: $23,634 cash & Spark/Patty Jo: $26,120 cash & Belize/Art: $13,500

GT (new S-H): $63,524!
BANKRUPT TRASH: 9 Benjamins

$100K Bonus Round
Patty Jo’s envelope is the M of AMERICA’S.

Category: PHRASE
Another biggie starts out like this…

_ / _ _ _ E/ _ N
T _ E/ _ _ _ _ S

MDHO adds besides the obvious H…

_ / _ _ _ E/ _ N
T H E / _ O O D S

…she’s wrong on the second word w/ HOME. It was A BABE IN THE WOODS, and she also loses the $32K. I would’ve also missed w/ HIKE.

$5K SPIN ID: DM1866052

MY EP. RATING: 7

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Apparently whoever picks the prizes loves that Colorado/Wyoming area, do they? JK.

    Otherwise, what a thrilling show! (I thought I heard T instead of P in R3.)

    I had A CAVE IN THE WOODS. Never heard of that particular phrase before.

    Nice to hear from you Nicki! My salute to your husband.

    TBH I wish you won the game, but a new car sure is nice to win!
