WoF Recap: March 3, 2015


Minnie mouse introduced the hosts this time.

$1K Tossup: PLACE

_ _ E / _ N C _ A N _ _ D
T I _ I / R O O M

This is a family-friendly attraction at the theme parks, and a lady named Jordan knows that’s THE ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM. Tuesday’s players…

Jordan Lewis: First Ward Creative Arts Academy 1st Grade teacher from Indian Land, SC
Jared Hunsake: 2nd-Class Naval Air Crewman memberfrom Oak Harbor, WA
Terra Harris: independent business owner for large network marketing co. from Shaker Heights, OH

$5K SPIN ID: RH8821997

$2K Tossup: SHOW BIZ

S _ _ _ _ A L
_ U _ S T / _ T A R

Jared apparently feels like a SPECIAL GUEST STAR, so he’ll be going first.

FEATURED DISNEY TRIP: Aulani Spa & Resort on Oahu in Hawaii worth $7,533 (that was used last night in the PP Round)
Tues./Thurs. Gift Tag: Maui Jim


He BANKRUPTs near $2,500 right out of the gate. Second, Terra calls up a $600 T, buys three E’s, but then hits the MDW’s left side. Third, Jordan puts up a $500 H, but then gets the other MDW BANKRUPT. Back to Jared who fills in a $700 N but then buys a worthless I. Terra next finds a $600 W, but the other normal BANKRUPT strikes. Jordan then picks up the WC w/ an S, FPs the E, and lights up a $700 B…

_ N E / T W _
B U _ _ _ E
_ _ / S H _ E

…then she says “ONE, TWO, BUCKLE MY SHOE” to take the early lead by just $200.

SOLE DUD: I (Jared)
BANKRUPTS: 4 (Jared 2x)

Jared: $2K/Terra: $0/Jordan: $2,200 WC


Mystery Round: CHARACTERS (biggie alert)

Terra gets started w/ an $800 R and three $600 S’s, then she buys five E’s and three A’s before BANKRUPTing near $650 to forfeit the $2,100 leftover. Second, Jordan discovers there are no T’s. Third, Jared picks up the Aulani wedge w/ two N’s, rounds up five $650 Y’s and two $500 H’s, but the I lets him down him again (and it’s the only bad vowel of this puzzle). Terra next picks two L’s while on the MW near $800 and turns down the $2K offer…for five times as much! Next up are five $550 P’s, the other two good vowels (both in pairs), and three $650 D’s before we see…

D O P E Y / _ R U _ P Y
D O _ / _ A S H _ U L
H A P P Y / S N E E _ Y
A N D / S L E E P Y

…unfortunately, she blows the name of the next-to-last of the dwarves w/ SNEEKY and gets DQed big time; that’s gonna cost her $14,200. Jordan doesn’t do any better on the MDW’s left side, so goodbye WC. Afterwards, Jared correctly IDs DOPEY, GRUMPY, DOC, BASHFUL, HAPPY, SNEEZY AND SLEEPY for a total of $12,533 cash & trip.

DUDS: T (Jordan), I (Jared)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (both ladies; everybody now has a pair so far)
SOLE DQ: Terra’s blown solve

Jared: $14,533 cash & trip/Terra: ZILCH/Jordan: $2,200


PP/Express Round: THINGS

At the start, the T fails Jordan again for the second round in a row. Second for Jared are two $650 S’s, an A, a $650 N, a $500 D, and three E’s, then come two $650 R’s, two $900 S’s, the rest of the vowel shop, and the BANKRUPT near TD to wipe out $4,300. Terra then lights up a $1,400 L pair…

_ O N D R O U S
I C E – _ L U E
_ L A C I E R S

…she has redeemed herself and will see some WONDROUS ICE-BLUE GLACIERS on an ALASKAN CRUISE aboard the Disney Wonder worth $10,797.

SOLE DUD: T (Jordan)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Jared (3rd one tonight)

Jared: $14,533 cash & HI/Terra: $12,197 cash & AK/Jordan: $2,200



_ _ _ / I T / G O
_ _ _ / I _ / _ _

Jordan solves “LET IT GO, LET IT GO” (from “Frozen” of course).

Speed-Up Round: WAYD?

The consonants have a $1,900 bounty on their heads. Midway in the round, Terra calls up the R…

S _ A R _ N G / A
_ _ S T _ R _

…she blows the solve for the second time tonight w/ SHARING A HISTORY. Jordan next fills in the Y’s but also screws up w/ STUDYING A. The man then uncovers the L… 

S _ L _ _ N G / A
_ Y S T _ R Y

 …and he’s SOLVING A MYSTERY for another $7,600.

BLOWN SOLVES: 2 (ladies)

Jared: $22,133 cash & HI/Terra: $12,197 cash & AK/Jordan: $5,200

GT: $39,530
BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding WC): $7,850


$100K Bonus Round
The ** is where he stops on.

Category: THINGS
Not much to start in this big one…

_ _ N _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _
_ _ _ T S

He’s CDMA conservative…

_ A N C _ / C _ _ _ _ _
_ _ _ T S

…all he can say is DANCE COMBO PANTS. The $32K gets left behind in this pair of FANCY COWBOY BOOTS.
