WoF Recap: September 24, 2015



B R I _ _
F _ R _ P L A _ E

Monica warms up by a BRICK FIREPLACE to get on the board among this panel…
Monica Partch : married to Don for 25 yrs. from Prescott, AZ
David Elber: John Hopkins Univ. grad student who spends the first yr. of his program in China from Hartsdale, NY
Miranda Sutton: marketer/leaser for commercial real estate co. (she also does karate & is obsessed w/ ketchup) from Baltimore

$2K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

F _ O R I D _
G R A _ E F R U I T

Monica triples up w/ a FLORIDA GRAPEFRUIT.

SS WEDGE: Furniture of America


She initially calls a $700 T, two E’s, two $650 R’s and four A’s before she says S for sorry. Second, David calls out a $650 N, buys the I and O singles to clean out the vowels, but then BANKRUPTs near $650 to lose 150 bucks. Third, Miranda captures a $5K L pair, a FP C, a $700 T, but nothing more w/ P. Monica resumes her play w/ a $1,300 pair of M’s, a $550 K, a $700 X, but then the other normal BANKRUPT to rid her of $4,050. After David says D for dud, Miranda lights up the $800 G and a $600 B to leave only one letter unexposed…

_ A H L B E R G

…she solves EXCLAMATION MARK WAHLBERG for her first $7,600.

DUDS: S (Monica), P (Miranda), D (David)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (David & Monica)


Mystery Round: HEADLINE

David grabs that 1/2 CAR near the orange $900 right away w/ two T’s, buys six E’s, but then LaTs out. Second, Miranda spots a $7K pair of R’s, buys five O’s, but then loses the remaining $6,750 to the BANKRUPT near $650. Third for Monica are an $1,800 N pair, a $1,300 F couple, but then the same BANKRUPT to give back $3,100. David next picks up the other 1/2 CAR w/ two S’s, and lights up a B while on the MW near the orange $650; no way is he risking the whole Fiesta and $1,750 (that’s the BANKRUPT one). But after a $600 H, he makes a CRITICAL VOWEL PURCHASE of A to likely throw away $18,065 cash & car. Miranda then tapes the double P’s for $1,300 and a $500 L…

N E _ E R –
B E F O R E – S E E N
P H O T O S / O F
P L _ T O

…she solves “NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN PHOTOS OF PLUTO” for 18 more Benjamins.

MAJOR DUD: A (David)
SOLE LaT: David
BANKRUPTS: 2 (women)

Miranda: $9,400/Monica: $3K/David: ZIP


PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Miranda instantly gets the MDW w/ a T, but an R call stops her just as quick. Monica secondly lights up a $1,300 N pair, buys three O’s, but the BANKRUPT near $650 strikes her again to the tune of $1,050. David thirdly runs into the other normal one. Miranda next finds a $1,950 S trio, buys an I, but the LaT nails her. Monica then digs up a $900 H, a $500 G, a $700 D, an E, and a TD L before we see this…

_ O _ N T L E S S
T H I N G S / T O / D O

…she wins another $5,350 and will have COUNTLESS THINGS TO DO on her trip to The Westin ST. MAARTEN Dawn Beach Resort worth $8,365. 

SOLE DUD: R (Miranda)
SOLE LaT: Miranda
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Monica & David)

Miranda: $9,400/Monica: $16,715 cash & trip/David: BAD SHAPE



C H E M _ _ T _ Y
T _ A C _ _ R


Speed-Up Round: WAYD?

Here’s another $1,600 FS for ya. After Miranda plugs in the M (the first letter of the bottom line)….

S _ R _ _ _ L _ N G / _ N
M _ / N _ T _ _ _ _ _

 …she goofs at first w/ SCROLLING IN MY NOTEBOOK but then rebounds w/ ” SCRIBBLING IN MY NOTEBOOK” for $8K.

Miranda: $20,400/Monica: $16,715 cash & trip/David: DESERVING $1K GOOSEEGG

David, David, David — you really disappointed me; you could’ve gone on for the P’s in R2 and it would’ve sealed the deal for you.

GT: $38,115


$100K Bonus Round
Miranda has spun the E of AMERICA’S.

Category: THING
I know what the second word is already…

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

GPHO gives her at least the first word…

G L O _ _ N G
R E _ _ E _

but no help on the bottom dooms her — I will NOT be giving this episode a GLOWING REVIEW as she loses $33K.
$5K SPIN ID: ED6043934

    not a great show, thanks to david blow it with 1/2 car chance & miranda blow it w/ million chance.

    once again, mistake from S-U, when she could've chosen the B's instead M.(at least she won)

    this BR, she could've won BR….. but nope…..(yeah, this BR needed W or I, but enough to won this setup)

    Like S29, this theme BR shutout alert, I hope avoided BR skunked.

    ep.rating : 5.5(at least two player are better winning)

    Bonus Round Comments:
    Ouch! Miranda was so close to solve this puzzle! GPHO means no help on the bottom word dooms! G and O was good, but Not P and H.. Letter V and W would helped out. GVWO should have major help. After 4 episodes $33K envelope has found, but it's a fourth losing streaks in a row!
    Looks like Harry just prepared the harder puzzles to save the budget!!
    That's really shame, Harry! Well, I hope that Friday night won't lose the bonus puzzle! So far, only $140K total this week was given away…

    This episode was pretty sloppy, but we've seen a bunch of tight matches in the past couple of weeks.

    My rating: 5

    If David had flipped the Mystery Wedge, he would have set a likely new record for the most lost in cash and prizes due to the Mystery flip, but still he would have lost the car anyway due to the A dud.
