Round 1: CHARACTERS
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…

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…
