WoF Recap: June 1, 2015


For real, I can say that we’re on the set where Whitney made horrible history (“Spring Break”). 

$1K Tossup: PLACE

_ O _ O R
_ _ _ E D W _ Y

Jack solves MOTOR SPEEDWAY. In order, meet…

Jack Klein: analyst in a financial industry who graduated from Univ. of PA from NY (orig. from Chicago) 
Jennifer Udeochu: physical therapist who started a nonprofit called Children Are Royal from Carson, CA (her family’s from Nigeria) 
Summer Haness: worker at family bowling entertainment center who plays poker from Sacramento

$2K Tossup: RHYME TIME

L _ T ‘ _ / H I _ E
_ _ _ I _ E

Summer goes the wrong way w/ “LET’S HIDE OUTSIDE”.

L _ T ‘ S / H I D E
_ _ S I _ E

Jack says “LET’S HIDE INSIDE” to triple up.

Mon./Wed./Fri. Gift Tag: Yankee Candle

Round 1: WAYD?

His first spin’s the MDW’s left side. Second, Jennifer calls out a $650 N, but LaTs out just as quick. Third, Summer puts up two G’s for $1,200, three obvious I’s, three A’s, and two FP E’s, followed by three T’s for that WC, a single O, three $900 B’s, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to lose $4,650 and the WC. Jack then inserts a $700 R and a C for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900…

G R A B B I N G / A
_ _ I C _ / B I T E
T O / E A T

…he’s GRABBING A QUICK BITE TO EAT and up his total by $1,200.

SOLE LaT: Jennifer
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Jack and Summer)

Jack: $4,200/Ladies: $0 each


Mystery Round: SAME NAME

Jennifer gets started w/ a $900 N, an A buy, a $700 D, three R’s for the same 1/2 CAR, four E’s, and an I, after which she says a $650 T, two O’s to finish off the vowel shop, an M for the Canada tour, and two $900 S’s. We now have…

S E _ R E T / A N D
S E R _ I _ E

…she solves SECRET AND ROOM SERVICE for a total of $11,050 and the lead.



PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Summer’s up first w/ a $900 T, but then the same BANKRUPT she got before. Second, Jack gets two N’s for the Y.C. gift tag, three I’s, but then the LaT. Third, Jennifer spins up the same normal BANKRUPT to lose her plate. Summer restarts w/ an $1,800 G pair, an A and three E’s, a $900 M, and an O, then she sees…

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

This is EVERYTHING YOU IMAGINED, ma’am — your first $1,950 and a Hotels.com trip to ARUBA worth $7K.

SOLE LaT: Jack
BANKRUPTS: 2 (women)

Jack: $4,200/Jennifer: $11,050 cash & Canada/Summer: $8,950 cash & Aruba


$3K Tossup: PERSON

O P _ _ _

Jack sweeps ’em w/ OPERA SINGER.

Round 4: SHOW BIZ

His next list of letters is made up of a $900 R, three TD T’s, but then a baddie of E. Second for Jenny are a $700 S, an A, two $900 H’s, two O’s, but then the S-U bell…

_ H A R T – T O _ _ _ _ _
H _ T / S O _ _

…and we have an $1,800 FS. She then lights up the twin P’s…

_ H A R T – T O P P _ _ _
H _ T / S O _ _

    Pretty good start to the week. Glad to see everyone earn something decent. Could be the start of a PERFECT BR WEEK…but you never know around here.

    You know…this reminds me of the 12/6/06 episode. Scott swept the Toss-Ups and got Round 1, Jennifer won the Prize Puzzle and the Final Spin (Round 4), and Lisa won Round 3. Then Jennifer won the Bonus Round (in her case, she won a car)!

    And Jennifer, well…with her nonprofit, she truly deserved what she earned. 🙂

    I want two more wins this week with NO grand prize losses so we can have our first winning BR week since the week where Rick won the $100K on 2/23/2015.
