EPISODE #6293: AMERICA’S GAME

The Jeep Wrangler Sport is in play tonight, meaning we’re on the Hawaii set.

$1K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

_ O U I S _ A N A
_ _ _ A N / _ I _

Jenny doesn’t realize the -AN ending in the second word as she blows the solve w/ LOUISIANA CAJUN DIP.

_ O U I S I A N A
_ E C A N / P I _

Lisa smells some LOUISIANA PECAN PIE. Before they eat their turkey, we need to play the game with…

Lisa Alexander: aspiring model & sports analyst from Vegas
Jenny Reddehase: insurance verification specialist from Round Rock, TX
Drake Dixon: hotel mgr. in PHX and adoption advocate who was formerly a swimmer holding a Junior Olympic record in ’97 from Chandler, AZ

$2K Tossup: PLACE

_ _ _ _ I _
L _ _ R _ _ Y

Jenny solves PUBLIC LIBRARY no doubt.

FEATURED TRIP: Costa Rica’s Si Como No Resort

Round 1: PERSON

Her initial choices are a FP E, two $700 R’s, and two A’s, then she spins up three $650 N’s, two I’s, a G for the WC, and the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose $3,350 and the WC. Drake secondly calls up a $1K pair of W’s, but that same BANKRUPT nails him too. Third, Lisa wastes a spin w/ the other normal one. Make that three in a row as Jenny spins up the same BANKRUPT she got before. Drake next puts in a $500 D, buys two O’s to clean up the vowels, but gets the exact same fate. Lisa then comes up w/ a $2,500 C, but the MDW’s right side takes it all right back…

A W A R D – W I N N I N G
C O _ _ O _ E R

…and Jenny mercifully solves AWARD-WINNING COMPOSER.

BANKRUPTS: 6 (two each player)

Drake: $0/Lisa: $1K/Jenny: $3K

————

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Drake’s next chance for better luck begins w/ a $1K pair of S’s, two $700 N’s, two E’s, and four A’s, followed by two R’s for the Beef Bucks debit card, a $550 T, but then that BANKRUPT near $650 to cost him $4,450 cash & card that time. Lisa secondly runs into the BANKRUPT near TD. Jenny then puts up a $1,200 pair of D’s and a $3,500 H…

_ A _ E N T _ N E ‘ S
D A _
_ A R D
S H A R _

…she solves VALENTINE’S DAY CARD SHARK for another $4,700.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (Drake and Lisa; they both have three to their credit)

Drake: NO LUCK/Lisa: $1K/Jenny: $7,700 

—————

PP/Express Round: THINGS

Lisa takes the MDW right away w/ two S’s, but the T ends her turn just as quick. Jenny secondly strikes out w/ R. Third, Drake picks off three N’s while on EXPRESS but declines (wha?). Next up are a $500 D, two E’s, an A, a W for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $600, an O, a $700 L, the last vowel of I and a $650 F. Board…

N E W / _ O _ _ L E S
A N D / F I N S

…not only does he win his first $4,350, he’s gonna need some NEW GOGGLES AND FINS for his trip to the Divi Carina Bay in ST. CROIX. I really wish he wasn’t that chicken…

DUDS: T (Lisa), R (Jenny)

Drake: $10,378 cash & trip/Lisa: $1K/Jenny: $7,700 

————-

$3K Tossup: ON THE MAP

_ H _ / _ R _ _ T
L _ K _ _

Lisa IDs THE GREAT LAKES.

Round 4: PHRASE

S for sorry is how she starts. Second for Jenny are a $1K pair of M’s, two E’s, a $600 T, two I’s, a $900 N, but then A for awful. Drake then puts in a $900 F but it’s S-U time…

_ _ _ _ E _ T / M E
I F / I ‘ M / _ _ _ N _

…w/ a $1,500 FS. After that man puts up three R’s on his next turn…

_ _ R R E _ T / M E
I F / I ‘ M / _ R _ N G

…you could CORRECT ME IF I’M WRONG, but Drake has sealed the deal w/ a $5,400 solve.

DUDS BEFORE FS: S (Lisa), A (Jenny)
DUDS DURING S-U: L (Drake), D (Jenny)

FINAL SCORES
Drake: $15,778 cash & trip/Lisa: $4K/Jenny: $7,700

GT: $27,478
BANKRUPT TRASH (sans WC): $11,550 cash & debit card

—————

$100K Bonus Round
He spins up the N of SPIN.

Category: PHRASE
This biggie’s easy…

_ _ E R _ _ E L _ _ N _
_ _ _ _ R _ T E

CDMI brings him…

_ _ E R _ _ E L M I N _
_ _ _ _ R I T E

…he ain’t gonna be an OVERWHELMING FAVORITE back in AZ, because he has no guess and loses the Wrangler (the envelope said SUV rather than JEEP).

$5K SPIN ID: HG0003515

MY RATING: 4

I’m most likely gonna be doing some Black Friday shopping for tomorrow and Friday so I will be late for those next recaps. Just a heads-up for you all.

    A Very Terrible show led by BR for a Car today. And If that Wasn't bad enough, 8 Bankrupts were hit and most of it came from round 1.

    My Rating: 1

    They're really stretching these categories. The BR isn't exactly a common phrase.

    That first round was AWFUL, but these three kept plugging away. Good. FGHI would've helped nicely in the BR.

    My rating: High 5

    Yep, 8 Bankrupts with the most being led by round 1 and a BR. That's why I give it a 1
