Round 1: SAME LETTER

T for trouble while on the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900 is how she starts. Second, Joshua FPs two A’s, calls up a $2,400 R trio and buys three E’s, followed by a $900 N, a $1,200 L pair, an I, but then the MDW’s left side to wipe out $4K. Third, Connie FPs the last vowel of three O’s, then she says a $600 F, two $700 S’s, and the SL BONUS of three $800 P’s before she…

P R O F E S S I O N A L

…solves PROFESSIONAL POKER PLAYER for $5,400.

SOLE DUD: T (Kelley)

Mystery Round: FOOD & DRINK

Joshua first taken an R and goes for what’s under the MW near $800…it’s his second BANKRUPT of the night. Second, Connie captures a $900 N, two A’s, and twin TD D’s (Pat said this amount w/ no enthusiasm), then she buys the rest of the vowel shop…

SOLE BANKRUPT: Joshua

Connie: $13,050/Kelley: $2K/Joshua: NO LUCK

PP/Express Round: LIVING THINGS

Connie says an instant dud of T just like what Kelley did in the first round. Speaking of said middle player, she’s second in line w/ a TD H, two R’s for $1,800, four E’s and two A’s; she follows up w/ five S’s for another $17,500, a single U, a $600 C, an I buy, three $650 N’s…a $700 D…but then a PAINFUL LaT landing to leave at least $25,050 on the table. Joshua doesn’t do any better w/ the BANKRUPT near TD; that’s his third of the game. Connie then picks up the Bedandbreakfast.com gift tag w/ an F, buys the leftover O, but then squanders her turn w/ the M. That opens up the door for Kelley

S E A / U R C H I N S
S _ O N _ E S / A N D
R E E F S

…she wins the $25,050 and will be seeing SEA URCHINS, SPONGES AND REEFS on this hotwire trip to the Coconut Bay Resort in ST. LUCIA; that round was $33,593 to her!  

DUDS (both by Connie): T and M

    My salute to both Kelley and Connie's husbands.

    Boy, did Kelley get LUCKY in R3! Connie was also good, but I think she called that M clearly to save Kelley's bacon. And poor Joshua. He deserved FAR better than the way he was treated by the wheel!

    I had the 1st word of the BR puzzle w/ RSTLNE. And Kelley's guesses were just unbelievable…

    I would give this episode a 5, primarily because I feel deeply sorry for Joshua. I wish he had earned more money so he could've paid his way through flight school. I just thought this was kind of depressing to watch.
