WoF Recap: September 22, 2015


$1K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

_ L A S _ / O F
_ C _ D / _ _ A

Marcus has sipped a GLASS OF ICED TEA. Meeting him and the ladies right now…

Marcus Stein: training dir. for an education tech. co. from N.O.
Rebecca Terlesky: kindergarten teacher at the same school she attended while she was in kindergarten (and former volleyball player/coach) from St. Clairsville, OH
Lydia Burgess: registered nurse at a privately-owned psychiatric hospital from Vegas (orig. from NC)

$2K Tossup: EVENT

_ _ _ I L _
R E _ _ _ _ N

Rebecca solves FAMILY REUNION.

PRIZE WEDGE: Furniture of America SS
Tues./Thurs. Gift Tag: Bed, Bath & Beyond

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…

_ _ A _ I N G / A
G A M E / O F
_ A _ / A N D / M O U S E

…she’s not PLAYING A GAME OF CAT AND MOUSE, because she makes the $4,550 solve.


Rebecca: $6,550/Lydia: $0/Marcus: $1K


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)

F R O _ E N
F O O _

…she’s the winner of this FROZEN FOOD FIGHT is her to bring her total to $8,600.

DUDS: S (Lydia), A (Lydia), C (Marcus)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Marcus and Rebecca)

Rebecca: $8,600/Lydia: ZERO/Marcus: $1K

Repeating Classic Bonus Puzzle: I GET YOUR DRIFT


PP/Express Round: THINGS

Marcus leads off w/ two $500 R’s, two E’s, two $500 N’s, a single A, and twin T’s for another grand. But after an I buy is the BANKRUPT near TD to take away $2,250. Over to Rebecca who rattles off a $650 G, three O’s, a dud of M while on FP, the last vowel of U, and triple S’s for $2,700 extra…

S O U N _ S / O _ / T H E
R A I N / _ O R E S T

…she pockets another $2,850 and will listen to the SOUNDS OF THE RAIN FOREST during her stay at the Crocodile Bay Resort in COSTA RICA worth $9,270.

SOLE DUD: M (Rebecca)

Rebecca: $20,720 cash & trip WC/Lydia: ZILCH/Marcus: $1K


$3K Tossup: PHRASE

_ _ _ H
_ _ _ _ _ T A _ _ _ _ S

Rebecca knows she has HIGH EXPECTATIONS to win this game.


She starts w/ a $1K pair of S’s, but then a bad E purchase. Second, Lydia BANKRUPTs near $650. Third for Marcus are four FP O’s, a $700 T, two U’s, but then the LaT. After Rebecca BANKRUPTs near TD to give up her WC and $750…

O U T _ O O _ / _ _ _ _ _
_ U S _ _ O _ S

…the leftover consonants in S-U mode are each worth $1,650. A dud of L and two C’s later…

O U T _ O O _ / C _ _ _ _
C U S _ _ O _ S

Marcus gets another $3,650 from these OUTDOOR CHAIR CUSHIONS.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (ladies)

Rebecca: $23,720 cash & trip/Lydia: $1K GOOSEEGG/Marcus: $4,650

GT: $29,370
BANKRUPT TRASH (excl. WC): $4,150


$100K Bonus Round
I hope Rebecca doesn’t need that WC right now as she lands on the I of AMERICA’S.

Category: PHRASE
She needs some serious help in that top word when we show her…

_ _ _ _ _
T _ R N _ R _ _ N _

GDHO only adds…

_ _ _ _ _
T _ R N _ R O _ N D 

the obvious — she can’t make a QUICK TURNAROUND without the I and C on top, so she’s the first QU- victim of the season and she also loses the Jeep Cherokee.

    Another example of how losing the WILD CARD can be costly. But Rebecca was a good player, IMO.

    My rating: 6.5

    I'm so sad because she didn't break through the QU- victim and she loses SUV once again! IMO, QKCU would been helpful to make QU-C- TURN-R-UN-, and she would know the answer. Ugh.

    They were waiting to pounce on the final spin after Rebecca lost the Wild Card. I never like it when they do that.


  4. yohan sur September 24, 2015 / 1:42 am

    nothing too special again, but unlike last night.
    yep, C might've helped one, but QU- trick will be victim, maybe.

    oh, first time BR carlanded on same week since december 2013.
    ep.rating : 5.5
