WoF Recap: May 25, 2015

On this Memorial Day, we begin “Wish You Were Here” week. And this was taped before last week’s BR SHUTOUT, so I think something big will happen.

Round 1: SONG LYRICS

His openers are a $1,400 pair of N’s, but then a bad O buy. Second, Michelle calls up a $900 T, two E’s, a TD H, four A’s, and two I’s to clean out the vowels. Following twin D’s for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900…

_ A _ _ / I N / T H E

…she’s “BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN” just like the late Gene Autry and she’s on the board w/ $3,650.

Michelle: $3,650 1/2 CAR/Morgan: $1K/Trent: $2K

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Michelle first shouts out two $600 N’s, two I’s, but then A for awful. Second, Morgan BANKRUPTs next to TD. Third, Trent takes two T’s for $1,800, an E, but then S for sorry. Michelle resumes her play w/ two P’s for $1,100, the last vowel of O, a $650 R, a K for the BaB gift tag, but then a critical LaT landing. Morgan then lights up the two Y’s for $1,400, and an L to go to $2,050…

PP/Express Round: FOOD & DRINK

Morgan starts this crucial round w/ two R’s for $1,800, two O’s and an A, as well as two T’s for the WC. But after her buys of two I’s and an E is the other normal BANKRUPT to take away the WC and the amount she started w/. Second, Trent LaTs out. Third, Michelle finds a $900 N, a U, and two F’s for the MDW after which she says a $500 Z, a $700 Y, but then a CRITICAL DUD of D. Morgan then SPINGLES for a $550 L…

F R O Z E N / F R U I T Y

A / _ _ _ _ _ _ T _
_ A _ _ _ _ _ _

…w/ the remaining consonants worth $1,500. Late in this round, Morgan gets the two M’s up there, but doesn’t know the last word. A dud of G and a K later…

    A very disappointing overall although the scores were okay, the $45K loss extends slump to 8.

    My rating: 3
    Going to get to $11 Million and maybe $12 Million

    Morgan was a hottie! She should be spinning nightly regardless. She was hot and Pat liked her
