EPISODE #6290: GREAT OUTDOORS

$1K Tossup: WAYD?

G _ _ N G / _ N / A
N _ T _ R E / _ A _ K

Amy goofs on the last word w/ PARK after the time’s up singal; Jennifer then solves GOING ON A NATURE WALK. Our end-of-wk. players…

Jennifer Forbes: acct. exec. for a publication co. & new beekeeper from New Orleans
Amy Plotts: ICU nurse/transfusion safety officer from Bel Air, MD
Craig Spoth: freelance video editor who enjoys playing/recording music from Milton, VT

$2K Tossup: FUN & GAMES

R _ D _ N G / _
_ _ A T E B _ A _ D

Amy’s not RIDING A SKATEBOARD now, but she’s in control of the wheel.

FEATURED TRIP: The Springs Resort & Spa in Costa Rica

Round 1: PHRASE

Her starters are a $500 N, two A’s, a $500 R, and five E’s to quickly clear out the vowels. Three $700 S’s later…

_ _ A _ / _ A _ E S
_ E R _ E _ _ / S E N S E

THAT (kinda) MAKES PERFECT SENSE for her to make the $2,600 solve (she left out the T’s).

PR

Craig: $0/Jennifer: $1K/Amy: $4,600

————

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Craig’s off and running w/ two $900 T’s, six E’s, an A, three $600 R’s, three I’s, and an O to finish off the vowels. Following a $1,300 pair of M’s and an L for that MDW
 
_ A _ I _ _ / T _ E
T I M E / O _ / M _
L I _ E
_ R E _ E R _ E R

…he’s “HAVING THE TIME OF MY LIFE PRESERVER” for $3,900.

PR #2

Craig: $3,900 MDW/Jennifer: $1K/Amy: $4,600

—————

PP/Express Round: THING

Jennifer’s first moves are a $500 S, but then the LaT. Second, Amy duds out w/ N. Third, Craig chooses a $900 T, buys three E’s and an A, calls up a $1,400 pair of R’s, but then strikes out w/ the sole dud vowel of I. After Jennifer’s non-existing L call, Amy gets two $600 G’s up there…

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

…she’ll enjoy the GORGEOUS WEATHER at the Grand Solmar Land’s End Resort & Spa in CABO worth $7,300.

DUDS: N (Amy), I (Craig), L (Jennifer)
SOLE LaT: Jennifer

Craig: $3,900 MDW/Jennifer: $1K/Amy: $13,100 cash & Cabo

—————-

$3K Tossup: TITLE

_ _ E / _ E C _ E T
_ A _ D _ N

Amy IDs “THE SECRET GARDEN”.

Round 4: PERSON

S for sorry is how she starts. Craig secondly takes a $1,400 N pair, an O, but then A for awful (it’s the only bad vowel in this short puzzle). Jennifer thirdly has been let down again by the L. Amy then tacks on a $1,400 R pair, a $700 W, and two I’s…

O _ R / _ I _
W I N N _ R

…she’s not OUR BIG WINNER just yet since she’s made another $1,850.

DUDS: S (Amy), A (Craig), L (Jennifer)

Craig: $3,900 MDW/Jennifer: $1K/Amy: $17,950 cash & Cabo

————–

Round 5: PROPER NAME

Craig opens w/ a $600 T, two E’s, an A, but then R for roadblock. Second in Jenny’s direction are three $500 N’s, a FP I, a $5K S and an O to clean out the vowels. But after a $500 D is a critical dud of P to leave $6,750 on the table. Amy then puts up $600 H and L singles…

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

…she IDs actor DENZEL WASHINGTON.

DUDS: R (Craig), P (Jennifer)

Craig: $3,900 MDW/Jennifer: $1K/Amy: $19,150 cash & Cabo

Speed-Up Round: FOOD & DRINK

It’s a $1,600 FS to close out the week. Following an instant and intact null cycle, the N, L and M pop up in the top word..

L _ M _ N
_ _ _ _ _

…and Craig solves LEMON WEDGE.

DUDS: R (Jennifer), T (Amy), S (Craig)

FINAL SCORES
Craig: $5,500/Jennifer: $1K/Amy: $19,150 cash & Cabo

GT: $25,650
ZERO BANKRUPTS!

$100K Bonus Round
Will there be something really good in the & envelope for Amy?

Category: THING
At the lead-off portion…

_ / _ _ R _ _ N _
_ _ _ E L

CHMA doesn’t add much besides the obvious A…

A / _ _ R _ _ N _
M _ _ E L

…she doesn’t have A WORKING MODEL of anything, so she’s the last $33K loser this week.

    even though round 6 playing, still this episode wasn't too speical.(BR is A waste, should've CDMO combo. easy puzzle, I think so)

    surprisingly, only $40K winner this week, even though all minimum lose.

    moment the truth, next week will be million rumor is true or false.

    at BR results, 13-37 from S33. I hope for better one……(at least better than last week, surprisingly only 1 skunked from BR)

    ep.rating : 6 also.
