WoF Recap: December 4, 2015

Until I get complete info about Wednesday’s pre-empted episode, I will NOT continue to post my weekly Season 33 stats for you as of this week.

$1K Tossup: PLACES

S _ S _ _ R
C I T I E _

Hallie solves SISTER CITIES. The last three teams this week…

Kari Graven & Hallie Prest (mom/daughter): Kari’s a visual/culinary artist, educator and life enthusiast while Hallie’s a career counselor at the Univ. of MN
Esther Whitted-Edouard & Eric Whitted (mom/son): she’s a Social Service provider while he’s a Rutgers sophomore and peer mentor

$2K Tossup: FUN & GAMES

_ _ _ E N T / _ H _ W

Hallie almost blurted out the answer, but she does buzz in and triple her team’s money w/ TALENT SHOW.

Round 1: THING

They first spin their way to two $550 S’s, a $700 T, three $700 R’s, but then a bad O buy. Second, the Whitteds call up a $2,500 N, four E’s, two $600 C’s, and two A’s. We have…

_ R A N _ _ A ‘ S
S E C R E T
R E C _ _ E

…they know their GRANDMA’S SECRET RECIPE for $3,200.

SOLE DUD: O (K & H)

Whitteds: $3,200/Grotas: $0/K & H: $3K

————

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

The Whitteds pick up the WC w/ two T’s, but they lose turn just as quick w/ an E buy. The Grotas secondly BANKRUPT near TD. Third, K & H call for a $600 S, but then repeat the T. The Whitteds resume their play w/ two $600 N’s, three A’s, a $600 G, and an I to clean out the vowels. But they then get cleaned out of $2,050 and WC by the other normal BANKRUPT. The Grotas then fill in L, K and R at $650 each, and an $800 H, then they…

T A L K I N G
T R A S H
_ A N

…solve TALKING TRASH CAN for their first $2,750.

SOLE DUD: E (Whitteds)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Whitteds & Grotas)
SOLE DQ: T repeat by K & H

Whitteds: $3,200/Grotas: $2,750/K & H: $3K

————-

PP/Express Round: FOOD & DRINK

This round’s all the Grotas — they uncover two $600 S’s, an E and three A’s, an N for that MDW, a $500 B and two I’s…

_ E _ I _ I _ _ S
B A N A N A S

…in addition to another $950 and that MDW, they’ll eat some DELICIOUS BANANAS at the the Rincon Beach Resort in PUERTO RICO worth $11,600.

PR

Whitteds: $3,200/Grotas: $15,300 cash & P.R./K & H: $3K

—————-

$3K Tossup: AROUND THE HOUSE

O U T D _ _ _
C _ _ T H _ _ L _ N E

Esther solves OUTDOOR CLOTHESLINE.

Round 4: PHRASE

They open w/ three $500 R’s, three E’s, but then a non-existing I. Second, the Grotas can’t capitalize on TD w/ N. Third, K & H have the same fate w/ an L call. E & E try again w/ a $700 S, but then A for awful. The Grotas then put in a $700 F, and three $500 M’s, but it’s S-U time…

R E F R E S _
M _ / M E M _ R _

…w/ a $1,600 FS. They call the two Y’s…

R E F R E S _
M Y / M E M _ R Y

…and Jimmy requests Pat to “REFRESH MY MEMORY” for $5,200.

DUDS: I (Whitteds), N (Grotas), L (K & H), A (Whitteds)

Whitteds: MC3743628 (Marlene C.)
K & H: ME7714800 (Michael E.)

MILLION DOLLAR BONUS ROUND #4
If I’m not mistaken, this is the first time ever we’ve had three MDBRs in a single week. Anyway, Jennifer has landed on the second A of AMERICA’S.

Category: THING
Leading us off…

_ _ _ _ L
_ _ R _ _ N _

PFGO only adds two of the vowel…

_ O _ _ L
_ _ R _ O N _

…their VOCAL HARMONY isn’t quite there (they only got the first word)…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and they are not the other $40K winners this week. However, they were TWO SPACES AWAY from the super big one — it was under the I of the same word.

    Thank you for these wonderful posts! Would you be so kind as to link an acronym article somewhere? I was able to deduce the meaning of WC, MDW, etc, but I struggled on a few of them and I'd greatly appreciate your additional help.

    Wow, the MDW got a LOT of love this week! Too bad $40K was lost this time, but this game was average to me anyway.
