WoF Recap: March 10, 2015


$1K Tossup: PHRASE

T A K _ / _ H E
P L _ N G _

This might be a good time for Brian to TAKE THE PLUNGE sometime early on in this game, but let’s get to know him and the ladies better…

Brian Peterson : Musson ES 5th Grade and Oakland Univ. teacher & beekeeper (who also won an award for teaching science last yr. and recently met President Obama) from Detroit
Jaimie Smith: grad school student working on Master’s in School Counseling who also a beauty/lifestyle blog from Elma, WA
Damita Johnson: has an online business (w/ her husband Gene of 31 yrs.) that teaches people empowerment from Long Beach, CA

$2K Tossup: FUN & GAMES

P _ A C _ I C A L
J _ _ _

Jaimie didn’t make any PRACTICAL JOKE here, so she’s spinning first.

FEATURED SG: Green Valley Ranch Resort in Las Vegas worth $6,580
Tues./Thus. Gift Tag: Mario Badescu skin care


Off she goes w/ two R’s for $1,400, but the BANKRUPT near $650 gets her just as quick. Second, Damita calls up two N’s for $1,300, an $800 B, three O’s and I’s, a $700 H, and three A’s to clean out the vowels. But after she picks up the L.V. trip w/ two D’s, she runs into the MDW’s left side to forfeit $9,630 cash & trip. Brian then puts up the remaining M’s for $1,300…

R O B I N / H O O D
& / M A I D / M A R I A N

…and reads the names to keep the 13 Benjamins.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (ladies)

Damita: $0/Brian: $2,300/Jaimie: $2K


Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Two $550 R’s get Damita started, but an E buy stops her. Second, Brian says S for sorry while on the MW near LaT. Third, Jaimie gets the WC w/ an N, four A’s, two $600 L’s and two I’s to clean out the vowels before calling an M while on the same MW and risking $1,200 plus her WC…$$$! But she then lands on the other normal BANKRUPT to give up $11,200 and her WC. Damita then inserts the $700 B, $800 P, and D for the M.B. gift tag…

P A R _ _

…this BRIDAL PARTY ANIMAL gets on the board w/ $3,850 cash & skin care.

DUDS: E (Damita), S (Brian)

Damita: $3,850 cash & skin care/Brian: $2,300/Jaimie: $2K 

Repeat Bonus Puzzle Flashback: SIDEKICK


PP/Express Round: WAYD?

The man in the middle calls off two T’s and an H at $600 a pop, E and A singles, three $900 N’s, a $700 G, two I’s, a $900 D, and the other two vowels (the U is the first letter of the answer). After an $800 W, here’s what Vanna has displayed…

U N W I N D I N G / A T
T H E / _ O O _

…but he still doesn’t know the last word, so he spins again…and he BLOWS IT BIG TIME w/ the M. That means he’ll have to give back $5,650 whereas Jaimie will be UNWINDING AT THE POOL while at the Divi Dutch Village in ARUBA worth $6,069.

SOLE DUD: M (Brian)

Damita: $3,850 cash & skin care/Brian: $2,300/Jaimie: $8,069 cash & Aruba



_ R E _ _ B A S _ _ T

Damita puts another three grand in her BREADBASKET.

Round 4: THINGS

Her starting letters are two T’s for $1,100, an S to go to $2K, two E’s and three A’s, then come two $550 R’s, three I’s to finish off the vowels, and the BANKRUPT near TD to wipe out $2,350. Second for Brian are two D’s for $1,600, three N’s to climb to $3,400, but the other one bites him. After Jaimie squanders her turn w/ the BANKRUPT near TD, Damita SPINGLES for the $700 V…

A D V E R T I S I N _
A N D / _ A R _ E T I N _

…and solves ADVERTISING AND MARKETING to be $219 off the lead.

BANKRUPTS: 3 (everybody)

Damita: $7,850 cash & skin care/Brian: $2,300/Jaimie: $8,069 cash & Aruba

Speed-Up Round: FOOD & DRINK

It’s a $1,500 FS in this ugly affair. After said red player picks off the triple F’s…

C R _ _ M – F _ L L _ _
_ _ F F L _ S

Danita eats these CREAM-FILLED WAFFLES for six grand.

DUDS: N (Brian; repeated by Damita), T (Brian)

Damita: $13,850 cash & skin care/Brian: $2,300/Jaimie: $8,069 cash & Aruba 

GT: $24,219
BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding WC): $27,980 cash & spa resort


$100K Bonus Round
Damita lands on the M in GAME.

Category: THINGS
The last letter is…

_ _ _
_ _ _ S

BDMA brings her…

B _ _
_ A _ S

…and the losing streak is now at nine, so the $32K will stay inside Harry’s BIG PAWS. I would’ve been wrong w/ BIG GAPS.

$5K SPIN ID: AD2132655

    Is that the season-worst BANKRUPT trash? UGLY…I've taken notice of your writing of critical duds or penalty spaces. Hmm…


  2. Andy Nguyen March 11, 2015 / 4:32 am

    Second-worst actually. Remember the Weekend Getaways episode w/ Alli Zack on Jan. 8? That was the one w/ the biggest BANKRUPT trash of all time.

    This is one of the Worst episodes I ever seen. Six Bankrupts costing Players over $27000, Bonus Round Loss Streak extends to 9. My rating out of all that: 1! (We better get a Bonus Round Win Tomorrow and stop the streak at 9 or We will suffer our first double digit Bonus round losing streak since 2013)


  4. JP Mackey March 11, 2015 / 3:16 pm

    Antwan, I think we're at THAT stage of the season, when Bonus Round wins always seem to elude us. Sigh…
