Round 1: SAME LETTER
He gets the Maui Jim gift tag right away w/ two S’s, only to lose it right back along w/ a grand to the BANKRUPT near $650. Second, G’na calls a dud in L. Third, Emily calls up a $550 R, three N’s for the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900 and two E’s, followed by three $550 T’s, two I’s, but then P for phooey. After Jeremy wastes another turn w/ the MDW’s left side, G’na gets up there a $900 G, a single A, the SL Bonus of four C’s for the other 1/2 CAR, and the rest of the vowel shop (three O’s included). Following a $700 M…

Mystery Round: LANDMARK
G’na’s up first w/ a $1,300 pair of T’s, two E’s, and two H’s while on the MW next to $800. She says she wants the car so she takes the money for those letters. Next up are an $800 R, three A’s, a $700 G, an O, and an F for that car (next to the orange $900) she just wanted. Unfortunately, she then makes the sole fatal purchase of the U to likely throw away $18,990 cash & Fiesta. Moving on to Emily who fills in two L’s while on the same MW and behind it is…the BANKRUPT. Jeremy then spins up a $1K W…

PP/Express Round: THING
The scoreless Emily leads off w/ a $600 N, two S’s for the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900, but the sole dud vowel bites a lady for the second round in a row (this time, it’s the E). Jeremy secondly puts up a $1K pair of T’s, two A’s, a $1,400 pair of R’s, an L for that WC, and five I’s before he sees…
