PR

Paula: $9,300/William: $1K/Adrinne: $0

—————-

Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

William’s up first w/ a R while on the MW near $650 and takes the obvious gamble…$$$. Next on his list are three $700 L’s, two A’s, E’s and O’s, a $600 S, the other two good vowels, but then the LaT. Over to Adrinne who picks up the Travel Wedge w/ the SL bonus of three D’s, but that and the $2,500 are taken right back by the BANKRUPT near TD. Paula’s third in line w/ a $700 C, two N’s for the 1/2 CAR near the orange $900, two $600 T’s, but then the same BANKRUPT to forfeit $2,900 and her plate. William then picks up the FoA gift tag w/ two G’s…

D E L I G _ T _ U L
D A _ _ L I N G
D E C O R A T I O N S

…he turns in these DELIGHTFUL, DAZZLING DECORATIONS for $13,450 cash & GT.

SOLE LaT: William
BANKRUPTS: 2 (ladies)

Paula: $9,300/William: $14,450 cash & GT/Adrinne: ZERO

————–

PP/Express Round: THINGS

Adrinne’s going aboard the EXPRESS right away after calling out the two S’s (at this point in the tapings, the audience stays silent after a letter’s called or bought).

Next Choices: N…D…four A’s…two E’s…four R’s…three T’s…three U’s (last of the vowels)…BIG BUZZ-OUT (she loses $10,250)

Paula then picks off two L’s while on the other 1/2 CAR and a TD C to complete the board…

C U L T U R A L / A N D
A R T / T R E A S U R E S

…she’ll see them on her trip to VIENNA (also included is a Blu-Ray Combo pack of the new movie “MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: ROGUE NATION”) worth $7,540.

The third time’s the charm for Adrinne w/ a FRESHWATER AQUARIUM.

Speed-Up: PHRASE

I hope she knows what the UV in “SUV” stands for…

_ T _ L _ T _

    Oh, and why do the non-tropical trips always have to be sponsored by entertainment? BORING!
