$1K Tossup: THING

_ U _ T O M
_ _ _ _ B O _ R D

Nathan forgets the theme as he incorrectly responds w/ CUSTOM BILLBOARD.

_ U _ T O M
_ _ R _ B O A R D

Julie’s won her first bit of money towards a CUSTOM SURFBOARD. At least one of these people might be reading the waves to big winnings…

Julie Su: writer & newlywed learning Korean from Sherman Oaks
Roxann Russo: 1st Grade teacher for 38 yrs. from Cockeysville, MD
Nathan Stevens: helps students obtain funding in order to pursue their college degrees from Gilbert, AZ

$2K Tossup: PEOPLE

_ O M M I T T E E
_ E _ _ _ _ _

Roxann unfortunately omits the S of this solution.

_ E M B _ _ _

Nathan solves COMMITTEE MEMBERS.

Tues./Thurs. Cash Gift Tag: honolulu.BUZZ

Round 1: BEFORE & AFTER

His opening choices are two $600 N’s, a $550 G, the obvious I and three A’s, followed by an $800 T, two $600 S’s, an E, but then H for hush. Julie secondly calls out two $500 R’s, the last vowel of two O’s, and three $700 L’s before we see…

S _ A R _ L I N G
_ A T E R
_ A L L O O N S

…she bursts these SPARKLING WATER BALLOONS for $2,850.

SOLE DUD: H (Nathan)

Nathan: $2K/Julie: $3,850/Roxann: $0

————-

Mystery Round: WAYD?

Julie gets to work w/ four N’s for $2,200, an I, but the sole dud vowel of O stops her. Second, Roxann wastes a spin w/ the BANKRUPT near TD. Third, Nathan picks up the WC w/ a G, lights up an $1,800 T trio, and buys five A’s and two E’s before the LaT cuts him off. Julie then picks off twin D’s while on the MW near $650 and risks her 17 Benjamins…ZERO. Roxann next gets the HI trip w/ a B, a $600 Q, and the last vowel of U but she then says a CRITICAL DUD of Y. Nathan spins once fore a $700 W…

A T T E N D I N G
A N / A W A _ D _
B A N Q U E T

…and solves ATTENDING AN AWARDS BANQUET for $2,500.

Roxann’s next chance to score begins w/ three N’s for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $600, three A’s, two $900 T’s, an E, and two I’s to finish off the vowels. Next on her list are two $600 H’s, two $500 G’s…$700 W and Y singles…but then M for MAJOR DUD to likely throw away her plate and at least $6,150. Nathan then uncovers the D while on EXPRESS and takes the short ride to complete the board w/ C…

D A N C I N G / T H E
N I G H T / A W A Y

…in addition to another two grand, he’ll be doing said activity at the Hilton PUERTO VALLARTA Resort worth $6,363.

Category: THING
Limited RSTLNE help…

_ _ _ _ _ E _ _

DMHI and G give him at least the first word…

_ I G
_ _ _ _ H E _ _

…but little help on the bottom means a LOSS for him. His BIG PAYCHECK would’ve been worth $40K.

    Terrible Show today. Why? First Roxann is in the running ZONK answer of the week and Julian Batts award of 2015 because of fatal dud in Prize Puzzle cost her a lot cash, and Nathan's BR loss was very costly.

    Big Paycheck was not helpful this time for Nate!
    B, C, P, A would had helped!
    Too bad it was the $40,000…. Oh man…
    GAH!!!! well, Nate was terrible luck.
    Including the worst moments.. Critical Dud…
    Deserving $1,000 Gooseegg…
    My Rating For this Episode : 4 out of 10 (same rating with November 4th!)
    Well… 6 out of 10 if the BR was won for Nate!
    And Roxann, hard luck. That was the worst player ever!
    Otherwise, nothing too special!
