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.

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

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

David needs to get the E envelope of AMERICA’S.
I think this one’s the easiest this week…
_ _ R _ _ 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.
