FEATURED TRIP: Qamea Resort & Spa in Fiji
Tues./Thurs. Gift Tag: Beef Bucks

Round 1: FUN & GAMES

Both Nura and Steve strikes out right away w/ R and S, respectively (he was on TD). Over to Troy who calls out a T for the WC, buys an A and two E’s, lights up a $700 G, and purchases six O’s. But after a $600 H, he gets DQed for repeating the E (he meant to say I, but it was too late). After Nura hits the MDW’s right side, Steve plugs in three $650 L’s, two P’s for the debit card, two $700 D’s, and an I before the same MDW BANKRUPT shoots him down to the tune of $5,100 cash & card. Troy then puts up the $500 B…

D O I _ G / A / D O _ B L E
L O O P – T H E – L O O P

…he’s DOING A DOUBLE LOOP-THE-LOOP for $1,300.

DUDS: R (Nura), S (Steve)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Nura & Steve)
SOLE DQ: Troy’s E repeat

Steve: $0/Troy: $1,300 WC/Nura: $3K

—————–

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Steve insta-BANKRUPTs next to TD. Second, Troy tries a $500 T but then H for hush. Third, Nura takes three $900 N’s, two E’s, two $700 L’s, a U and two O’s. But after a $600 F is A for awful (and it’s the only bad vowel of this puzzle). Steve follows w/ a $500 V, but the other MDW BANKRUPT nails both men, and Troy must give up his 5 Benjamins and the WC. After Nura then buys that remaining I…

_ I N _
T U N N E L
O F / L O V E

…she gets through the WIND TUNNEL OF LOVE for $3,450.

DUDS: H (Troy), A (Nura)

Afterwards, he says a $500 D…a $900 L…but then a FATAL DUD of H while on EXPRESS to throw away $7,200 and his plate. Nura then goes for the mystery trip…

I D E A L / S P O T

    Glad to see Nura have fun, but that Final Spin round was as bizarre as the foods Andrew Zimmern tries!

    That was a unfortunate in a terrible show. For Nura, bad letters here and a BR loss hurts to extend slump to 6.

    My rating: 1
    Nura should be worst contestant of 2015

    EVERY MILITARY PERSON WHO IS ON THIS WEEK ARE THE WORST CONTESTANTS OF 2015 AND OF SEASON 33 BECAUSE MILITARY PEOPLE ARE GOD-AWFUL AT GAME SHOWS! THEY ARE ONE OF THE REASONS I HATE AMERICA.

    Come on, people. This was the kindest, most selfless act ever committed on a game show. She was obviously trying to help her fellow vets, who hadn't racked up much, even though it risked her bonus round. Nura is the best person ever to spin that wheel.

    llawless,she is a fucking retard and military people are the worst people to play WOF. It is a fact. Watch the Regis and Kelly puzzle debacle from several years ago and you'll know. I hate this fucking country.

    Perhaps you are right. Military people may not be good at solving word problems. Your example, however, of the Regis and Kelly puzzle is evidence that while the U.S. military may be wasting their time doing terrible things all over the world, at least they aren't wasting their time watching enough shitty television to know who Regis and Kelly are.
