Round 1: WAYD?
She gets going w/ a $1,300 pair of N’s, five A’s, a $600 D, two O’s, and a $500 F, followed by two E’s, a single I, the obvious two G’s for $1,300 more, a $700 S, the last vowel of U, and a $1,400 pair of M’s before we show you…

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Lydia first spins her way to a $700 T, an E, but then S for sorry. Second, Marcus calls out a $700 R, an I, and a $700 G before hitting the MDW’s right side to lose the $1,150 remainder. Third, Rebecca BANKRUPTs near $650. Lydia’s second turn sees her choosing an $800 H, but then A for awful. Following Marcus’ non-existing C call, Rebecca says an N for the WC, three O’s to clean out the vowels, and three $600 F’s (too bad this doesn’t give her the SL Bonus)
