WoF Recap: May 22, 2015 — BR SHUTOUT ALERT #3

EPISODE #6225: SPIN INTO SUMMER

$1K Tossup: PHRASE

_ H E / _ _ R S T
T _ M _ / _ _ _ _

The studio audience is laughing when Sarah says on-air that she doesn’t know the last word. 

_ H E / _ _ R S T
T _ M _ / E V _ _

Lizzette realizes that this is NOT THE FIRST TIME EVER that we’ve been shutout in Bonusland for a week of shows. Trying to stop this threat are…

Lizzette Colon: iSchool guidance counselor and Blue Hill Troupe member from Queens, NY
Sarah Walker: substitute teacher who’s planning to move to CA to get into TV/screenwriting from Lakeland, FL
Andrew Holick: pharmacy tech from Tucson, AZ

$2K Tossup: RHYME TIME

T _ E / _ _ _ _
_ _ T H / _ H _ / M O S T

Sarah knows that Pat is THE HOST WITH THE MOST. 

FEATURED TRIP: Costa Mediterranean Cruise worth $6,500

Round 1: FOOD & DRINK

She wastes a spin w/ the MDW’s right side. Second, Andrew calls out a $650 T, two E’s, a $650 H, but then a bad vowel in A. Third, Lizzette finds two N’s for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900, two TD L’s, an I and three O’s to clean out the vowels, but she’s been cleaned out herself to the tune of $5,500 and her plate by the BANKRUPT near $650. Sarah then picks up the cruise w/ two R’s…

_ R I L L E _
_ O R N / O N
T H E / _ O _

…she’s gonna be eating some GRILLED CORN ON THE COB while on that ship, so she’s won another $7,500 cash & cruise.

SOLE DUD: A (Andrew)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (ladies)

Sarah: $9,500 cash & cruise/Andrew: $0/Lizzette: $1K

————-

Mystery Round: SHOW BIZ

Andrew’s first call of a T is a no-no. Second, Lizzette picks four N’s for $3,200, three E’s, and S for the Omaha Steaks gift tag, two I’s, three $800 R’s and three O’s…

O S _ _ R / _ I N N E R
_ _ _ I _ N N E / _ O O R E

…she IDs OSCAR WINNER JULIANNE MOORE for $6,350 cash & food.

SOLE DUD: T (Andrew)

Sarah: $9,500 cash & cruise/Andrew: ZERO/Lizzette: $7,350 cash & steaks

—————–

PP/Express Round: PLACES

Lizzette leads off w/ a $1,300 T double, five E’s, but then N for negative while on EXPRESS. Sarah secondly gets two R’s for the 1/2 CAR on the blue $550 (why was it placed there instead of that green $500 next door?), an A, an S for the other 1/2 CAR, and a U, then we look at…

_ _ _ T U R E –
_ E R _ E _ T
_ E A _ _ E S

…oh, that somebody on the crew just gave away a car to this lady — she just won $15,975 cash & Versa plus a trip to the PICTURE-PERFECT BEACHES of JAMAICA (The Oasis at Sunset) worth $9,394!

SOLE DUD: N (Lizzette)

Sarah: $34,869 cash & prizes/Andrew: ZIP/Lizzette: $7,350 cash & steaks 

————–

$3K Tossup: THING

_ _ R A T E / _ H _ P

Sarah thinks it’s a KARATE CHOPnope

P _ R A T E / S H _ P

Lizzette’s in five figures w/ PIRATE SHIP.

Round 4: WAYD?

Here she goes w/ a FP I, a $700 N, two E’s, the obvious $700 G, two $500 T’s, and two O’s, followed by an $800 R, a $600 S, but then the S-U signal…

S _ _ R O _ _ E T I N G
T O / _ _ _ E

…and the leftover consonants are worth $1,500. Following an intact null cycle, Vanna puts up the M but Lizzette blows the solve w/ SKYROCKETING TO HOME, not realizing the H was a dud. Sarah then buys the A for free instead of picking the K’s…

S _ _ R O _ _ E T I N G
T O / _ A M E

…she’s SKYROCKETING TO FAME for the house minimum.

DUDS (after final bells): L (Lizzette), D (Sarah), H (Andrew)
SOLE BLOWN SOLVE: Lizzette

FINAL SCORES
Sarah: $35,869 cash & prizes/Andrew: $1K GOOSEEGG/Lizzette: $10,350 cash & steaks  

GT: $47,219
BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding plate): $5,500

—————-

$100K Bonus Round
Sarah spins up that P.

Category: THING
She needs some help in the top word…

_ _ E R _ E _ _
L _ _ _ T

GPBI adds besides the obvious two on the bottom…

_ _ E R _ E _ _
L I G _ T

nothing at all, so she doesn’t turn on this OVERHEAD LIGHT for $32K and we have our third (and hopefully final) BR shutout of the season.

    I will NOT declare this a technical win because I became pumped up about something you shouldn't know about, Andy. I WON'T do it tonight.

    Skunked BR week just like Tuesday skunked TPIR episode

    Weekly rating: 4

    All prizes claimed in Maingame when Sarah won two trips and a Car and Lizzette won Omaha Steaks but Sarah loses BR resulted in worst BR week although Sarah got more than what she could had added.

    My rating: 7
