Round 1: BEFORE & AFTER
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…

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…

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…
