Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Carla starts us off w/ a $900 T, four O’s, five R’s for that WC, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose that and $3,150. Second, Melissa calls up four N’s for $2K, buys two E’s…

…and she’s GRINNING FROM EAR TO EAR OF CORN for $1,750 when she could’ve gone for the G’s.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Carla

Naomi: $7,450/Carla: ZERO/Melissa: $2,750

(NOTE: This show has released its first-ever Mr. Food Collectible Cookbook.)

PP/Express Round: THING

This crucial round begins w/ Melissa calling two S’s for the 1/2 CAR near pink $900, four T’s for $2,600 more, but then the sole dud vowel of E (she thought the second word would be BEST). Naomi secondly tries a $1,400 pair of N’s, buys six A’s, but then repeats the E. Carla thirdly finds a $900 L, buys an I and three O’s, lights up an $1,100 pair of R’s, and buys the last vowel of U. Following three P’s and two M’s at $900 apiece (I was wrong thinking the first word’s CANADA)…

P A N A M A ‘ S
M O S T / P O P U L A R
A T T R A C T I O N

$3K Tossup: WAYD?

Well, it’s not Carla who flunks all the Tossups this time — it’s Melissa who blows the solve w/ CHOPPING ONION.

_ H O P _ _ N G
O N L I _ _

Naomi capitalizes w/ SHOPPING ONLINE.

Round 4: IN THE KITCHEN

She BANKRUPTs near $650 right out of the gate. Second for Carla are a $1,400 pair of T’s, an E, but then the LaT. Heading Melissa’s way third are a $600 R, two L’s for $1,300, an I and four O’s, then come a $900 S, an A, a $500 B, and a $1,400 K pairing. Board, Vanna…

_ _ _ _ _ _ _
_ _ _ _ _ _ S

…w/ $1,700 being the consonant value. Said middle player later picks off the four P’s

P L _ _ _ _ L
P _ P P _ _ S

GT: $39,800
BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding WC): $3,150

$100K Bonus Round
Besides the Fiesta, Star Ford has also provided a red Explorer that could be won this week. Given Carla’s early mishaps, I’m not sure if she’s gonna pull this one off after she spins up the W.

Category: PEOPLE
1/5 of the answer to start…

_ _ _ N _
_ R _ _ _

PMGI guarantees at least a letter…

_ _ _ N G
_ R _ _ _

but nothing else, so this YOUNG CROWD will NOT be seeing her win…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…THE $100,000 — WE HAVE OUR FOURTH SUCH LOSS THIS SEASON. Hopefully that’s the fifth and final time we’ve seen either grand prize not won.

    This was disappointing. 4th $100K loss of season and 5th Grand Prize to be lost.

    My rating: 1 (A C and O and a Y would had done it)
