EPISODE #6165: WHEEL AROUND THE WORLD

$1K Tossup: SONG TITLE

L _ N D O _
_ A _ L _ N G

Kim is off by a letter w/ “LONDON FALLING”, whereas Ed IDs “LONDON CALLING” by The Clash. These players are here to help and try to break the $400K barrier…

Ed Laczynski: public school teacher at Channel View School for Research from Rockaway Beach, NY
Ashley Jenkins: attorney who’s active in church  from Chicago
Kim Stern: stand-up comedian pursing a career w/ the govt. (preferably in law enforcement) from Lakewood, CA

$2K Tossup: PLACE

_ H _ M _ _ T _ Y
L A _

Ashley solves CHEMISTRY LAB.

FEATURED TRIP: Republic of Georgia worth $7,700

Round 1: AROUND THE HOUSE

Her starters are a $900 S, a $600 T, a $700 N, two O’s, and an I, then come an R for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900, a $650 D, three A’s, but then a possible fatal misstep w/ Y. Kim instantly BANKRUPTs near $650. Ed next calls up three C’s for $1,500, buys two E’s to clean out the vowels, but then gets the exact same fate as Kim. Ashley then picks up that Georgia trip w/ four L’s…

_ A S E _ A L L / C A R D
C O L L E C T I O N

…and solves BASEBALL CARD COLLECTION for a total of $11,300 in that round alone.

SOLE DUD: Y (Ashley)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (everybody else)

Ed: $1K/Ashley: $14,300 cash & trip 1/2 CAR/Kim: $0

————–

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Kim leads off w/ an S for the same 1/2 CAR, three $650 T’s, an O, and two N’s for the Ricardo Luggage. But after her buys of an A and two I’s is the LaT. Second, Ed spins up the green $500 space next to the pink $900 five times in a row and calls up two G’s, the last vowel of three E’s, L and Y singles, M, and two R’s. Following a FP P…

S P R I N G
_ R E A _
I T / T O / M E
G E N T L Y

…he correctly says “SPRING BREAK IT TO ME GENTLY” for $3,750.

SOLE LaT: Kim

Ed: $4,750/Ashley: $14,300 cash & trip 1/2 CAR/Kim: BAD LUCK

————–

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

First, Ed spins his way to the other normal BANKRUPT. Second for Ashley are two $800 T’s, two N’s for that MDW, but then the sole dud vowel of E. Third, Kim lights up a $500 S but nothing else w/ R. Back to Ed who finds a TD L, buys an O and four A’s, but then gets that same BANKRUPT. Next on Ashley’s radar are a $600 G, two $500 T’s, the other two good vowels, a $900 H, a $700 B, and a $650 M. Here’s the layout now…

I / M A Y / O N L Y
_ A _ _ / A
B A T H I N G / S U I T

…she rightly says “I MAY ONLY PACK A BATHING SUIT”, because she’s won $4,700 more & this trip to the Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort in ARUBA worth $6,606.

DUDS: E (Ashley), R (Kim)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Ed)
 
Ed: $4,750/Ashley: $25,606 cash & trips MDW/Kim: BAD SHAPE

$3K Tossup: ON THE MAP (but also Movie Title)

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ C A R

Ed locates “MADAGASCAR”.

Speed-Up Round: THING 

$1,900 per consonant here. The two O’s have been purchased for free late in this round…

M Y / P E R S O N _ L
F _ _ O R _ T E

…well, this isn’t really MY PERSONAL FAVORITE of a round, but Ed nearly doubles his winnings w/ a $7,600 payoff.

AIRED DUDS: C (Kim) and G (Ashley)

FINAL SCORES
Ed: $15,350/Ashley: $25,606 cash & trips MDW/Kim: $1K GOOSEEGG

GT: $41,956
BANKRUPT TRASH: $4,250

Category: THING
At the lead-off portion…

_ _ _ _ L _ _ R _
_ _ _ E R

CPBO does for her…

_ _ _ _ L _ _ R _
P O _ E R

…Dave from Thursday is off the hook because she doesn’t solve AUXILIARY POWER

…and she just barely dodged a bullet, because the million was in the same place where Rick won the $100,000 on Monday — the N of SPIN. Her envelope had the $32K.

$5K SPIN ID: TB6804957

The final total this week is $395,621 cash & prizes.

    Surprised that Ed is the featured blogger this week instead of Rick. And this show was pretty average. The whole week, however – awesome!
