EPISODE #6149: FUN & FIT

$1K Tossup: THINGS

S _ O M A C H
C R _ _ _ _ _ S

Rick may have STOMACH CRAVINGS, but that is incorrect and Kimberlee’s guess of STOMACH CRAMPS isn’t much better.

S T O M A C H
C R U _ C H _ S

Anna capitalizes w/ STOMACH CRUNCHES. Interview time…

Anna Kavanaugh: married twice in four mos. (her grandma just turned 100 at the time of this taping) from Sacramento
Rick Leasure: intl. basketball player who played for the Washington Generals at least once from Painesville, OH
Kimberlee Spires: risk management co. worker who’s lost about 60 lbs. from Lacey, WA

$2K Tossup: AROUND THE HOUSE

_ H _ _ _ _ A L
G R I _ _

Kimberlee’s right this time w/ CHARCOAL GRILL.

Round 1: FUN & GAMES

Her first letter of T stands for terrible, however. Second, Anna calls up four N’s for $2K, three I’s, and the obvious three $700 G’s. Following her buy of three O’s, she picks up the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900 w/ an S, but then loses her turn w/ an E buy. Third, Rick finds two R’s for $1,400, two A’s to clean out the vowels, a B for that WC, two $800 K’s, and a $700 M. We now have…

G O I N G / O N
A / B R I S K
M O R N I N G / _ A _ K

…he’s GOING ON A BRISK MORNING WALK for $3,950.

DUDS: T (Kimberlee), E (Anna)

Rick: $3,950 WC/Kimberlee: $2K/Anna: $1K

——————–

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

First, Anna picks up the same 1/2 CAR she couldn’t keep w/ three R’s, but the T call fails a lady for the second rd. in a row. Second, Rick FP’s an A and three E’s, but next is S for sorry. Third, Kimberlee puts up a TD N, but she then buys the sole dud vowel of this puzzle (I). On Anna’s second try, she rounds up two $500 L’s, two O’s, three $650 D’s, and a G while on the MW near $800. She’s putting $4,200 and her plate on the line…good call, but she then squanders her turn by repeating the O. After Rick BANKRUPTs near TD to give up the WC, Kimberlee inserts $500 B and P singles…

G R O _ N D / R _ L E
D O _ B L E –
P A R _ E D

…and solves GROUND RULE DOUBLE-PARKED for $4,250.

DUDS: T (Anna), S (Rick), I (Kimberlee)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Rick
SOLE DQ: Anna’s O repeat

Rick: $3,950/Kimberlee: $6,250/Anna: $1K 

——————

PP/Express Round: LANDMARKS

Rick’s letter rundown here is made up of a $900 T, an A, two O’s, but then N for no. Second, Kimberlee insta-BANKRUPTs on the MDW’s right side. Third for Anna are two R’s for $1,600, an E, but then the whistle blow for repeating the N. Rick next picks up four S’s for $2,600 more, buys two I’s and three U’s, but then LaTs out. Kimberlee then lights up an $1,800 M trio…

_ O R _ _ – _ A M O U S
_ R I T I S _
M U S E U M S

…she’s about to visit some WORLD-FAMOUS BRITISH MUSEUMS on a london.buzz trip to LONDON worth $8,200.

SOLE DUD: N (Rick)
SOLE LaT: Rick
SOLE BANKRUPT: Kimberlee
2ND DQ TONIGHT: Anna’s N recall

Rick: $3,950/Kimberlee: $16,250 cash & London/Anna: $1K 

——————-

$3K Tossup: WAYD?

_ T _ C _ _ _ _ / _ O
_ H _ / _ L A N

Anna’s correctly STICKING TO THE PLAN.

Speed-Up Round: PLACE

$1,600 per consonant on this Thurs. night. After an S appears early on…

_ _ _ _ T _ _ N – _ _ _ _
_ _ _ _ / _ _ _ R S _

Anna scores a hole in one at the last second w/ EIGHTEEN-HOLE GOLF COURSE for another $3,200.

FINAL SCORES
Rick: $3,950/Kimberlee: $16,250 cash & London/Anna: $7,200

GT: $27,400
BANKRUPT TRASH: just the WC

——————-

$100K Bonus Round
Kimberlee spins up the E in GAME.

Category: LIVING THING
Again, bottom word help is needed…

T _ N _
_ _ _ _ _

CDMI is of very limited help…

T I N _
_ _ _ _ _

…she fails to capture a TINY GUPPY. And it wasn’t the $32K that showed up tonight…

IT WAS $100,000 — SHE’S THE SECOND SUCH LOSER THIS SEASON. This playing would have been a TOTAL TRAINWRECK had she chosen the A as her vowel. But she better be glad she didn’t quite land on the good part of that MDW.

$5K SPIN ID: MV9954050

MY EP. RATING: 4
