She next buys two I’s, picks up the Maui Jim gift tag w/ an M, but then falls victim to the BANKRUPT near TD to forfeit $12,900 cash & shades. Gary secondly LaTs out. Third, Lauren captures a $2,400 T trio, but the sole dud vowel of O stops her. After Madison and Gary strike out quickly w/ Y and N, respectively (she was on the MDW), Lauren picks off a $500 P and three A’s…

    A very disappointing show throughout. A Big bankrupt wipe away $27000 in cash and prizes. A BR loss worsens the day.

    My rating: 2
    (Is that way too harsh Andy and JP?)

    I don't think contestants who come on here to read your rating would like that, so yes It's way too harsh!

    I see why you gave it a 4 Andy. Those big BANKRUPTS (and most of them coming from Madison).

    At least this week was AWESOME. It didn't become another Island Hopping Week. 🙂

    I don't see a reason why S wasn't called in the Speed-Up even though it wouldn't have made a difference in the game.

    that's right, this BR is setup winnable, but unsurprising loss, thanks to bad bankrupt.

    You know, I think it was just spur of the moment…the answer just came to Madison. $5,550 is pretty decent.

    You said you were done with technical wins, I WILL NOT declare Carla's $100,000 a technical win, because we all need to stop with technical wins, that includes you and me, Rick from 2/23/2015 is the only $100,000 winner of the season. I'm done with technical wins, and you said you were.
