Emily drinks up from a MUG OF SPICED CIDER. This time, we’re interviewing them from the other end of the line…

Round 1: WAYD?

Her first letters are a $1,500 trio of N’s, three G’s to double up, three I’s and O’s, and two E’s, followed by four $700 T’s, four A’s to clean out the vowels, two S’s for the Canadian tour, but then the MDW’s left-side to throw away $11,800 cash & tour. Second, Royal calls up three $600 H’s, and two $1,300 pairs of P’s and D’s, then we have…

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

…I’ll be GETTING A HEAD START ON HOLIDAY SHOPPING and so will he w/ his first $4,400.


Royal: $4,400/Amanda: $0/Emily: $3K


Mystery Round: RHYME TIME

Royal kicks off w/ three T’s for the Pendleton gift tag, a $650 N, but then the sole dud vowel of O. Second, Amanda says S for sorry while she’s on the MW near $650. Third, Emily lights up triple R’s while on the other MW and turns down the $3K offer for…$$$. Her next call of W, though, ends her turn. After Royal picks D for dud, Amanda inserts four P’s for $2,600, a $700 M, and a $500 K…

P _ T _ R / P _ T _ R
P _ M P K _ N / _ _ T _ R

“PETER PETER, PUMPKIN EATER” is correct for her first $3,800.

PP/Express Round: FUN & GAMES

Amanda picks up the 1/2 CAR near the pink $600 right away w/ an R, then she chooses a $900 T, six A’s, but gets DQed for repeating the R. Emily then SPINGLES for a $650 S…

S A _ _ _ _ _ / A

SOLE DQ: Amanda’s R repeat

Royal: $4,400/Amanda: $3,800/Emily: $10,550 cash & MX


$3K Tossup: EVENT

_ K T _ _ _ _ F _ _ T



T for trap is how he starts. Second for Amanda are three $800 R’s, two $600 B’s, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to take away $3,600. Third, Emily has the same fate as Royal w/ an N call. Said red play then proceeds to hit LaT. Amanda tries again w/ three $650 D’s, a $700 F, buys of three E’s and an I, but then H for hush. Emily follows a/ $650 Y, but then the same normal BANKRUPT. After Royal’s $650 C and second LaT landing, Amanda spingles for the last consonant of a $700 K…

Speed-Up Round: SHOW BIZ 

$1,550 per consonant here. After two S’s are exposed by Ms. White…

S _ _ R T S
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ R

Royal gets SPORTS ANNOUNCER, but still loses the game by just $50 since he didn’t call the N’s.

Royal: $10,500/Amanda: $6,650/Emily: $10,550 cash & MX

GT: $27,700
BANKRUPT TRASH: $16,050 cash & tour


$100K Bonus Round
If Emily somehow gets very lucky here, she’ll top Sheri’s final total by just $450. She lands on the A of GAME.

Category: THING
Opening layout…

_ N _ _ _ S E _
_ _ _ N _ _ N

DMHO adds besides the obvious D…

_ N _ _ _ S E D
O _ _ N _ O N

…here’s my UNBIASED OPINION — it was just too much to follow up Sheri’s monster night and Emily only gets the second word. After seeing the $33K, she leaves as the lowest-winning champion this season.

$5K SPIN ID: TM7538989

    this episode nothing too special…… but then again, since sheri $110K+ winning from last episode, this episode could've budget saving mode.

    also, bad mistake for royal, he should've N instead S from speed-up. and B needed from BR.
    ep.rating : 4.5

    Poor Emily. She kissed the $10K Mystery Wedge goodbye due to the uncommon letter dud.


  3. JP Mackey October 23, 2015 / 3:44 am

    The totals weren't too pretty – that's a sign of a budget episode.

    My rating: 5


  4. Antwan Rice-McKinley October 23, 2015 / 3:49 am

    This episode was horrible thanks to EMily fatal Dud cost her The $10K MW, landed on Bankrupt to lose the Trip and Lost the Bonus resulting her being the lowest winning player this season.

    My rating: 1
    (At least we broke $200K the week)


  5. JP Mackey October 23, 2015 / 4:05 am

    Oh, and why did Emily have to SPINGLE? There were two N's left behind!
