$1K Tossup: PEOPLE

B _ O T H _ _ S
& / _ _ _ _ _ R S

Andrew solves BROTHERS & SISTERS. Meeting them in order…

Andrew Roley: Navy construction mgr. in Civil Engineer Corps stationed in Guantanamo Bay from Woodinville, WA
Dekenia Norfleet: registered ICU nurse who’s working on getting into grad school at USC from Pasadena
Sherrie Breuker: early childhood Special Ed teacher (who’s lost approx. 105 lbs. since last yr.) at Zeeland Christian School from Zeeland, MI


R A _ H E L
M _ _ D A _ S

Dekenia IDs Canadian actress RACHEL MCADAMS.

FEATURED SS: shop.com

Round 1: SAME NAME

Her first moves are calling a $700 L, but then A for awful. Second, Sherrie selects a $500 S, but LOSES A TURN just as quick. Third, Andrew FPs four E’s, but gets the same fate as Sherrie. Ater Dekenia says B for bad, Sherrie picks up the Yankee Candle gift tag w/ four N’s and buys three I’s to clean out the vowels…

_ N I _ _ I N _ / &
_ I N E
N E E _ L E S

…she solves KNITTING & PINE NEEDLES for $3,250 cash & candle.

DUDS: A & B (both by Dekenia)
LaTs: 2 (Sherrie & Andrew)


Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

Sherrie insta-BANKRUPTs on the MDW’s left side. Second, Andrew captures a $600 T, buys two E’s and four A’s, but can’t capitalize on TD w/ N for no. Going down Dekenia’s road third are a $500 F, two O’s, two $550 H’s, three $650 S’s and a U, then come an $800 L, a TD D, two $700 M’s, but then a baddie of P to likely cost her $8,750. Sherrie then speaks three Z’s for $1,950 and four Y’s to add $14K

T H O S E / L A Z Y
H A Z Y / _ _ A Z Y
D A Y S / O F
S U M M E _

…she exactly recites “THOSE LAZY, HAZY, CRAZY DAYS OF SUMMER” (by Nat King Cole from ’63) for $15,950.

DUDS: N (Andrew), P (Dekenia)

Andrew: $1K/Dekenia: $2K/Sherrie: $19,200 cash & candle


PP/Express Round: OCCUPATION

There goes Andrew w/ two T’s for seven grand, E and A singles, two $500 N’s, and two O’s. He follows up w/ four R’s for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $600, a $550 L, three $600 S’s, a $650 P and the leftover vowels before he finally solves w/ all of this…

P E R S O N A L / S U R _
I N S T R U _ T O R

…he’s gonna need a PERSONAL SURF INSTRUCTOR real soon, because he’s won $11,750 plus a trip to the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort in HAWAII worth $7,579.


Andrew: $20,329 cash & HI/Dekenia: $2K/Sherrie: $19,200 cash & candle


$3K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

B _ _ _ K _ A _ T
B U R _ _ T _

Andrew chomps up a BREAKFAST BURRITO.

Round 4: THING

He picks off two $500 T’s, triple E’s, an N, two R’s and a D at $500 each, and a $650 S before we shift into S-U mode…

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

…w/ a $1,600 FS. He buys two O’s for free…

S E _ O N D / E _ _ O R T

…but he blows the solve w/ GREAT SECOND EXPORT (I don’t think I’ve heard such a thing called that). Dekenia then forgoes calling the C’s or F’s and just says GREAT SECOND EFFORT.

SOLE DUD (during S-U): M (Sherrie)

Andrew: $23,329 cash & HI/Dekenia: $3K/Sherrie: $19,200 cash & candle

GT: $45,529


$100K Bonus Round
Will the third time be the charm tonight to give away that Jeep Cherokee Latitude? Let’s find out after he picks up the R envelope.

Category: PHRASE
I have a feeling what this one-liner is…

_ _ / _ _ L _ S

MYGO is his combo…

_ _ / _ O L _ S

…as soon as he said those first two consonants, I knew he fell for it — he’ll be saying “HI FOLKS” after waving $40K goodbye.

    not bad episode, and BR could've won, but nope.
    ep.rating : 6.5(thanks to two player great total)


  2. Antwan Rice-McKinley September 24, 2015 / 2:03 am

    A worst BR week so far. And a BR loss hurts even more although 23,000 and 19,000 won by 2 contestants.

    My rating: 5


  3. JP Mackey September 24, 2015 / 4:27 am

    Good match, but the BR was a real toughie. And Dekenia – not calling the F's in the Final Spin and just solving instead?

    My rating: 7

  5. yohan sur September 26, 2015 / 1:46 am

    remember, speed-up puzzle last two-words reused 5/9/2012 BR puzzle(won $30K)


  6. andrew September 28, 2015 / 12:08 pm

    You had HI FOLKS? Great job, man. You should audition!

    I was going to use the statistical HPG O, but I was thinking MY for the first word and knew they are pretty common, too so it wasn't a terrible choice. Not good enough though!


  7. JP Mackey September 29, 2015 / 4:28 am

    Great try, Andrew. You still did a good job. And thank you for your service.


  8. D. Nor... July 8, 2016 / 5:41 pm

    Hi Andy, this is a very impressive WOF compilation! Unfortunately, I have no other way of contacting you, but could I ask you to change/ abbreviate my name for this episode. I’m going for a job interview and I don’t want this to pop up for potential employers on google (quick thinking is imperative for ICU nurses, and I had a little slip up in the 2nd round lol). Thank you for your help.
