Sean’ solves PAYING DIVIDENDS.

Round 1: WAYD?

He calls the obvious first (two G’s for the WC, three I’s, and four $800 N’s), but then buys a bad vowel in O. Second, Kim FPs four A’s, picks up a $5K pair of L’s, and captures the 1/2 CAR near pink $900 w/ three T’s. After she then buys three E’s to clean out the vowels…

E A T I N G / A T
A N / A L L – N I G _ T

…she’s won her first $6,250 towards EATING AT AN ALL-NIGHT DINER.

SOLE DUD: O (Sean)

Diana: $1K/Sean: $2K WC/Kim: $6,250 1/2 CAR

Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

The early leader’s first pick of T is no good. Second, Diana FPs two E’s, finds a TD R, but then buys A for awful. Third, Sean tacks on a $700 L, two O’s, the SL bonus of three $550 C’s, and a U to finish off the vowels. He follows w/ a $650 B, an $800 M, and three D’s for the other 1/2 CAR before looking at…

Diana: $1K/Sean: $7,800 WC 1/2 CAR/Kim: $6,250 1/2 CAR

PP/Express Round: THINGS 

Diana gets that MDW right away w/ two R’s, but then says S for sorry. Down Sean’s path second are a TD T, four A’s, a $900 L, two E’s, three N’s for the new york.BUZZ gift tag, a $600 D, and the remaining good vowels of I and two O’s. Now, the board…

R O _ A N _ E / A N D
R E L A _ A T I O N

…but he decides to spin again…and he shouldn’t have — he’s BANKRUPTed near $650 to give up $6,500 and his cardboard pieces. Afterwards, Kim will enjoy some ROMANCE AND RELAXATION on her trip to the Coconut Bay Resort & Spa in ST. LUCIA worth $7,545. 

SOLE DUD: S (Diana)

$3K Tossup: PROPER NAME

P _ T _ I _ I A

She’s one of the stars on the new hit drama “CSI: CYBER”, and Kim knows that’s PATRICIA ARQUETTE.

Round 4: FOOD & DRINK

She instantly strikes out like in the second round, this time w/ the N. Second for Diana are two FP E’s, two TD R’s, but the A lets her down again. Following Sean’s $1,200 pair of S’s, it’s S-U time…

S _ _ R _ _ _ _ _
_ R E _ _ E _ S

…w/ a $1,500 FS. He then puts up the G…

_ R E _ _ E _ S

…and eats up some SOURDOUGH PRETZELS for $2,700.

GMDI is no good at all, and she’s NOT even close w/ PAPER CAKE, PAPER PLATE and PAPER DATE. She doesn’t have a good POKER FACE to win $32K; not very well played by her (and she’s the featured blogger of the week).

    Very disappointing show. No car win plus no extra letters in BR and a BR loss really bought down my ratings.

    My rating: 3 (had she called and F and a P, she would had got it) (folks it happens once in a while, we get a BR loss and I hate to see it. What you gonna do)

    Whoa! Antwan! Is that a challenge right there?! LOL.

    Anyway, this was a pretty “average” show. Nothing too special. My rating is a high 5. If only Sean didn't spin again… (Kim's the featured blogger? Maybe because of her enthusiasm. It should've been Katie, IMO.)
