FEATURED INTREPID TRIP: Southern Morocco worth $7,500
Tues./Thurs. Gift Tag: TravelSmith

Round 1: PHRASE

She gets going w/ an $1,800 pair of T’s, an A, but then the BANKRUPT near TD. Second, Andrew calls out two R’s for his own $1,800, four E’s, and double S’s and three N’s at $700 a pop… 

T _ E R E ‘ S / A
N E _ / S _ E R _ _ _

…he replies “THERE’S A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN” for $5,050.

SOLE BANKRUPT: April

Shayla: $0/April: $2K/Andrew: $6,050

————-

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Andrew first says three R’s while on the MW near $800 and that flip is worth…NOTHING. Shayla secondly uncovers two S’s for $1,400, three $1K N’s, three E’s and an I. But after a $2,700 trio of T’s is the other normal BANKRUPT to take away $6,600. April thirdly rattles off a $700 C, a FP G, and a $700 P…

T E N N I S

Repeating BP Flashback: THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

————

PP/Express Round: THINGS

Shayla gets that MDW right away w/ four S’s, plugs in a $500 T, but then buys the sole dud vowel of E. Coming April’s way second are a $600 N, an A and three I’s, a $900 W, a $550 M, and the leftover vowels, then we have…

S W I M S U I T S / A N _
_ _ I _ – _ _ O _ S

…she needs to bring some SWIMSUITS AND FLIP-FLOPS, because she’s won $1,050 plus that $6K Costa CARIBBEAN CRUISE.

SOLE DUD: E (Shayla)

Shayla: NIL/April: $10,950 cash & cruise/Andrew: $6,050  

————-

$3K Tossup: OCCUPATION

_ A S T _ R
C _ _ _

This MASTER CHEF cooks up some more dough for April.

Round 4: SHOW BIZ

Her first call of T is no good. Second for Andrew are a $650 N, two A’s, a $650 D, but then the LaT. Down Shayla’s path third are three $900 S’s, five E’s and an I, a $700 R, but then C for crud. April then picks a $1K M pair, a $650 K, and an O…

M O _ I E / R E M A K E S
A N D / S E _ _ E _ S

DUDS: T (April), C (Shayla)
SOLE LaT: Andrew

Shayla: NIL/April: $15,350 cash & cruise/Andrew: $6,050

Round 5: EVENT

Andrew lands on TD right away, but can’t cash in w/ a dud of R. Shayla has the same fate w/ an S call. Moving on to April who puts in $800 N and L singles, buys an A and three E’s, but we hear the S-U bells…

_ _ L _ _ A _
_ E E _ E N _

…and the remaining consonants are worth $1,600 apiece. 

_ _ L _ D A _
_ E E _ E N D

…after we’ve spent our HOLIDAY WEEKEND, April has added another $4,300 worth of icing.

DUDS (before FS): R (Andrew), S (Shayla)

    I do not like this to happen tomorrow if we do not get out of the slump. Let's get a win in a BR tomorrow or suffer a double digit drought.

    You know something? If Thursday and Friday's bonus rounds are lost, I will declare Friday's loss a technical win because I can't accept this drought anymore! I WANT A WINNER NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
