She decides to go on…well, she makes it past the BANKRUPT near $650, but she says a MAJOR DUD of M to throw away $11,300 cash & trip plus that MDW. Jon then puts up the twin L’s for a grand…

He nearly tries to solve, but he spins again…and gets the same BANKRUPT that Shari was flirting w/ to flush $3K down the tubes.

Mindy first wastes a spin w/ that same BANKRUPT. Second for Shari are three N’s for $1,800 but then the LaT. Down Jon’s path third are two G’s for $1,800, an I and four E’s, but then R for roadblock. After Mindy runs into the other BANKRUPT, Shari puts up two O’s, three $600 T’s, and a trio of A’s, but the LaT shoots her down again. Jon then lights up a $900 H, the last vowel of U, a $500 C, an $800 Z and two S’s via EXPRESS. You bet he’s GOING ABOARD…
