Round 1: PHRASE

She first calls an $800 T, buys two E’s, but then BANKRUPTs near $650. Second, Shawn wastes a spin w/ the LaT. Third, Andrea finds a $700 H, a $900 N, an A, and two O’s, then come three $650 D’s, an S for the gift tag, but then the sole dud vowel of U. Rachel then SPINGLES for a $550 G and buys the last vowel of I, then we’ve displayed…

A N D / T H E / _ _ O _ D
G O E S / _ I _ D

AND THE CROWD GOES WILD as she makes the solve, but those W’s were left on the table.

SOLE DUD: U (Andrea)

Rachel: $3K/Shawn: $0/Andrea: $1K


Mystery Round: SONG LYRICS

Shawn’s next chance to get on the board begins w/ four L’s for $2,800, two R’s for $1,600 more, a $600 D, two O’s, and twin A’s. But after a $900 S is his second LaT of the game. Second, Andrea lights up a $700 N, and five $900 W’s…

A / W _ O L _ / N _ W
_ _ A _ ‘ S / W _ _ R _
W _ ‘ L L / _ _

…she exactly recites “A WHOLE NEW WORLD, THAT’S WHERE WE’LL BE” from the movie “Aladdin” for $5,200.

SOLE LaT: Shawn

Rachel: $3K/Shawn: NO LUCK/Andrea: $6,200


PP/Express Round: FUN & GAMES

Andrea’s initial letters are three $500 N’s, a $650 T, two I’s, and the same number of A’s. Those are followed by an $800 G, a $900 S, and the two remaining vowels of two O’s and three E’s. We now have…

S N O _ _ E _ I N G / A T
_ A I N _ O _ / _ E E _

…another $2,850 is hers and she might be SNORKELING AT RAINBOW REEF because she’s won a trip to the Aulani Disney Resort & Spa in HAWAII worth $7,533.


Rachel: $3K/Shawn: GOOSEEGG ALERT/Andrea: $16,583 cash & HI



_ / G _ _ _ L E
_ _ / _ _ E _ E

Andrea spots A GAGGLE OF GEESE.

Round 4: THINGS

Her first call of R is no good. Second for Rachel are a $650 S, an E buy, but then the other normal BANKRUPT; that’s probably her other one of the night. Third for Shawn are four N’s for $3,200, a $550 G, but then the S-U signal…

E _ _ _ _ _ N G
_ N N _ _ _ _ _ _ N S

…and $1,500’s the consonant value. After an X pops up…

E X _ _ T _ N G
_ N N _ _ _ T _ _ N S

Andrea solves EXCITING INNOVATIONS for another $4,500.

SOLE DUD (before final bell): R (Andrea)

Rachel: $3K/Shawn: $1K GOOSEEGG/Andrea: $21,083 cash & HI 

GT: $25,083


$100K Bonus Round
Andrea lands on the E of GAME. Also, enter each bonus puzzle of the week on the show’s website for your chance to win a trip to the resort that she’s going to.

Category: PHRASE
The last letter of it is…

_ _ _ _
_ _ _ _ _ T

PGCA are all up there…

_ _ G _
_ _ P A C T

…but she still BLOWS IT w/ HUGE IMPACT when the E was already dead. Her final total won’t have a HIGH IMPACT to the tune of $32K.

    Pat's explanation of Rachel's spingle (NOT a semi-spingle at all since she left off multiples) did not excuse her early solve. Compulsive gambling isn't her thing…Pat said it.
