Her choices in this go-around are a $500 T, four E’s, three TD N’s (Pat didn’t prompt her), and an A before the BANKRUPT near $650 forces her to give up $15K and her WC. Bridget secondly says a dud of R. Third for Quikton are two $900 L’s, an $800 C, a $700 X, but then a bad O buy. Sarah restarts w/ a $500 S, but then buys the other bad vowel of this board (U).

    not bad this episode, thanks to sarah $30K+ won, but round 4 bad bankrupt for sarah.
    this BR, vowel Os are could've won….. but nope. if she called M, she could've won.
    this week all BR would've won, but 0-4 BR this week.
    I hope for next episode, don't 3rd skunked this week.
    ep.rating : 6(thanks to rough round 4, and easy BR loss)

    so far, 96 episodes are BR car without landed. remember, Between 7/14/09 and 1/15/10, the $45K envelope is not hit for 94 consecutive episodes.
    this BR car never landed during S32? I think so…..

    Might as well make it 5 for 5 with forgetting the given letters this week. That's more likely at least.

    A rough finish to the show. However $30K win in Maingame was a save even a BR loss for its 6th straight.

    my rating 4 because of huge bankrupt in round 4

    Tomorrow better be a BR win to avoid its third shutout week or it will be another BR skunked week

    If there's a shutout this week, I predict Michael Taylor and whatever111 will be banned from blogger. There hasn't been a winning bonus round week since the week of February 23 when Rick won the $100,000 followed by 2 more wins before a losing streak of 10 occurred afterward (when the first shutout all season long occurred). I'm hoping for a perfect bonus round week at some point (hasn't happened since there were three of them in season 28).

    Yeah, if a perfect BR week happens, then this will be the “model” season. LOL. 🙂
