David solves A FLEET OF SHIPS. One of these guys might win multiple Fords by the time this episode’s finished…

$2K Tossup: PEOPLE

G _ _ A T
P A R E _ _ S

Joe has GREAT PARENTS.

FEATURED TRIP: IBEROSTAR resort in Mexico

Round 1: RHYME TIME

N for no is how he starts. Second, Jennifer calls up a $650 T, three $700 H’s, an E, but then a duplicate of the N. Third, David can’t find any of the first letter in his name. Joe tries again w/ an $800 G, a single I, but then S for sorry. Jennifer follows w/ a FP O, a $900 R, but then P for phooey. David then picks up the WC w/ three Y’s…

_ Y / _ _ Y / O R
T H E / H I G H _ _ Y

…he says “(IT’S) MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY” for $1,500.

DUDS: N (Joe; repeated by Jennifer), D (David), S (Joe), P (Jennifer)

David: $2,500 WC/Joe: $2K/Jennifer: $0

————-

Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

Jenny leads off w/ a $1,200 pair of T’s and an R while on the MW near LaT. She risks the 12 Benjamins…good call. But after buying eight E’s, the BANKRUPT near TD blows up her remaining $10,950. David secondly spots the SL Bonus of seven $650 D’s, two I’s, an M for the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900, and two A’s to clean out the vowels. Following a $1K pair of N’s, and a $1K P…

D E D I _ A T E D
D E T E R M I N E D
D E P E N D A _ _ E

…he says he’s DEDICATED, DETERMINED (&) DEPENDABLE for $7,550.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Jennifer

David: $10,050 WC 1/2 CAR/Joe: $2K/Jennifer: ZILCH

————–

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

Unfortunately for David, he loses his cardboard pieces right away to that same normal BANKRUPT. Second for Joe are a $550 T, two A’s, an E, three $500 N’s, a $650 G and the obvious I, followed by a $650 P, three O’s, four $3,500 C’s…the last vowel of U…but then a MAJOR DUD of H to throw away $16,050…

C _ A C _ I N G / O P E N
A / C O C O N U T

…and Jennifer will be CRACKING OPEN A COCONUT during her stay at the Napili Kai Beach Resort in MAUI.

SOLE CRITICAL DUD: H (Joe)
SOLE BANKRUPT: David

David: $10,050/Joe: $2K/Jennifer: $7,180 HI trip

———————

$3K Tossup: IN THE KITCHEN

_ _ T / _ _
_ _ _ A _ / _ _ _ V _ S

Joe takes out a SET OF STEAK KNIVES.

Speed-Up Round: FUN & GAMES

For the fourth night in a row, it’s $1,600 per consonant. After Joe spots the X late in the round…

B O X _ N G / A N D
_ R _ S T _ _ N G

…he solves BOXING AND WRESTLING for $4,800, but he’s a vowel short of winning this game.

DUDS: C (Joe), P (David), M (Joe)

FINAL SCORES
David: $10,050/Joe: $9,800/Jennifer: $7,180 HI trip

GT: $27,030
BANKRUPT TRASH (excl. extras): $10,950

————–

$100K Bonus Round
David needs to get the E envelope of AMERICA’S.

Category: WAYD?
I think this one’s the easiest this week…

_ _ R _ _ N _ / _ _
T _ E / _ _ E N

PHGO are all up there even though the G and H are wastes…

_ _ R _ _ N G / _ P
T H E / O _ E N

…he STILL BLOWS IT w/ TURNING UP THE OVEN and BURNING UP THE OVEN. Since he wasn’t WARMING UP THE OVEN, he just threw away the C-MAX Hybrid (the word HYBRID wasn’t added for these car envelopes) and is now the lowest-winning champ this season.

$5K SPIN ID: EK0838227

    today match is tight…… but yeah, this week is fell apart. also, so close first time $10K- champ since 1/20/14.(joe and jenniffer big cost for $10K+)
    not very well played from BR, since waste G and H. at least he didn't tax burden & just minimum prize playing.(CDMA would've won, I think ford c-max hybrid worth is $25K+)
    ladies and gentleman, this weekly total is only $107,838(likely Great escapes week).
    on positive side, contestant blogger playing from tomorrow, I hope for better one.
    ep.rating : 3.5

    Next season or later, the Mystery Prize may be raised to $15K, if this happens as of this season, Jennifer would have lost $15K+ to Bankrupt instead of $10K+.
