Well, this week is really far from magical. I think we’re on pace to having our first BR SHUTOUT all season long, but you never know.
EPISODE #6169 DISNEY SAND & SHORE
Minnie did the intro again.

Michelle solves NIGHTINGALES, although she was forced to repeat her pronunciation.
FEATURED ADVENTURE BY DISNEY: NYC worth $12,936
Round 1: CHARACTER
Here she goes w/ an obvious $600 S, an $800 T, three E’s, and three $900 R’s. After she buys two A’s and I’s…
_ I _ _ E R E _ _ A ‘ S
_ A I R _
_ _ _ _ _ T _ E R
…CINDERELLA’S FAIRY GODMOTHER grants her another $3,350. .
Michelle: $6,350/Others: $0 each
Mystery Round: FOOD & DRINK
Shannon’s first letters this night are a $900 S, three E’s, and two A’s, then he calls up four R’s while on the MW near LaT and turns down the $4K buyout to risk his four Benjamins…nothing there. Andrea secondly spots a $650 C, two $800 P’s, a FP O, and a TD B, but the sole dud vowel of I stops her. Michelle then inserts two $900 M’s, the last vowel of U, a $650 N, and two $1K F’s. We now have…
_ E M O N –
R A S P B E R R _
C R E A M / P U F F
…a nice desert item of a LEMON-RASPBERRY CREAM PUFF, and she makes the $4,200 solve.
SOLE DUD: I (Andrea)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Shannon
Michelle: $10,550/Others: $0 each
PP/Express Round: EVENT
Andrea kicks off w/ a $700 S, three A’s, a $700 T, an E buy, but a sole dud vowel bites her for the second round in a row (in this case, it’s the O). Michelle secondly CLIMBS ABOARD the EXPRESS after putting up an N.
Next Choices: 2 I’s and U…2 G’s…3 H’s…S repeat (she loses $5,500)
Shannon then SPINGLES for a TD W…
S I G H T I N G / A
