When this season’s schedule was released, we didn’t know what the first week of Jan. 2016 would be. Now we know what it is — it’s the return of “Fun & Fit”. And no, we’re not using that cheap FIAT 500c. You’ll see what the actual vehicle is towards the end of this report.

Round 1: FUN & GAMES
She first calls a $1,300 pair of N’s, but the BANKRUPT near the purple $650 takes it all right back. Second, Kelsey spins her way to a $500 T, two $600 S’s, four $500 G’s, two I’s, and the same number of O’s, after which she picks two $700 R’s, two $650 L’s, and the other three vowels. We have…

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Kelsey picks up the DICK’s gift tag right away w/ an S, but that and the $500 are taken right back by that same BANKRUPT. Second, Scott gets up there a $650 R, two A’s and O’s, but nothing more w/ K while he’s on the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900. Third, Rebekah takes a $600 L, the leftover vowels of two E’s and I’s, a $650 M and a C while on the MW near $650. She risks the $750…$$$. After a $1,650 N trio…

The scoreless Scott is off to a bad start w/ an R call. Rebekah secondly tries an $1,800 pair of N’s, vowels of A, O and three E’s, a $700 H, and three FP I’s, but the other normal BANKRUPT bites her to the tune of $1,750. Kelsey thirdly runs into the MDW’s left side. Next from Scott’s mouth are a $600 P, two $500 T’s and a B while on EXPRESS before he goes aboard.
