EPISODE #6105: BED & BREAKFAST WEEK 

$1K Tossup: THING

T _ E / _ E _ _ O N A L
_ O U C _

Amanda has THE PERSONAL TOUCH, and let’s meet the contesti right now…

Amanda Craig: CSUN student, school secretary & newlywed from Van Nuys (orig. from AL)
Yvette Lightbourn: East English Village Preparatory Academy & Davis Aerospace HS psychologist & fitness buff who’s lost 148 lbs. from Detroit (orig. from The Bahamas)
Eben Siegel: TV research analyst who won a contest for eating six tacos from NYC (orig from MA)

$2K Tossup: EVENT

G _ A N D
_ _ _ R A _ C E

After we see Pat & Vanna make their GRAND ENTRANCE, Amanda has tripled up.

LAST B&B TRIP OF WK.: The Inn of the Patriots in NC worth $8,158

Round 1: SHOW BIZ

She’s off to a bad start w/ the MDW’s right side. Second, Yvette calls up a $1,300 pair of R’s, five E’s, two T’s for another $1,400, and three A’s before she LOSES A TURN. Third, Eben picks up the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900 w/ four L’s, buys six I’s and an O to clean out the vowels and lights up quad C’s for another $2K (he mistakenly picked up the North Carolina wedge while looking at Yvette’s arrow). Three $900 S’s later…

C R I T I C A L L _
A C C L A I _ E _
T E L E _ I S I O _
S E R I E S

…he solves CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED TELEVISION SERIES for $3,200.

SOLE LaT: Yvette
SOLE BANKRUPT: Amanda

Amanda: $3K/Yvette: $0/Eben: $6,200 1/2 CAR

————-

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Yvette says an automatic dud of R. Second, Eben spins up the same BANKRUPT to lose his plate. Third, Amanda FPs four O’s, lights up a $700 S, but then buys the sole dud vowel of E. Yvette’s second turn ends quickly w/ that same BANKRUPT (and she tried to call for an N). As it turns out, a null cycle has been left in because Eben and Amanda dud out w/ L and M, respectively (Eben was on the other 1/2 CAR). Yvette’s third try sees her putting up an $1,800 pair of N’s but then re-buying the O. Eben then gets the WC w/ two T’s, buys two A’s…

S O _ A
_ O _ N T A _ N
O _ / _ O _ T _

…and solves SODA FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH for the house minimum.

DUDS: R (Yvette), E (Amanda)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (ladies)
SOLE DQ: Yvette’s O repeat

Amanda: $3K/Yvette: ZIP/Eben: $7,200 WC

PP/Express Round: FUN & GAMES

First for that guy at the end are a $1,600 pair of R’s, six A’s, but then the other MDW BANKRUPT to lose $1,350 and his WC. Second for Amanda are a $650 N, two $500 D’s, double O’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to give back $1,400. Third, Yvette sees in her future five $800 S’s, but the sole dud vowel of E fails a lady for the second straight round. Next for Eben are an F for the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900, two $900 B’s, an I, a $500 T, the last vowel of U and an L via EXPRESS. He GOES ABOARD…but his next call of M takes the Versa out of play and rids him of $3,300. He quickly gets his turn back after the women dud out w/ W and C, respectively. Following a $1,600 pair of K’s…

S U R F B O A R D S
S A I L B O A T S
A N D / K A _ A K S

…he’ll use some SURFBOARDS, SAILBOATS AND KAYAKS, because he’s won a hotwire trip to the Divi Carina Bay in ST. CROIX.

    This has been a rough episode to say. Based on 4 straight BR loss, 2 losing week, 6 bankrupts and express crash, my rating: 3
