Last night’s episode was history in the making but for ALL THE WRONG REASONS — Whitney Shields lucked out in the front part winning $41,294 cash & Jamaica until that unlucky 13th MDBR of the season. With very little to work with thanks to wasting the A, she had no chance of solving WITHOUT A DOUBT and suffered THE ULTIMATE HEARTBREAK of becoming the first-ever $1M loser on the program. Surprisingly, it wasn’t as viral as we thought it would be and no wonder it took 72 aired MDBRs for THAT to finally happen. My condolences to her.
After I said all that, it’s time for a long road to recovery…
