_ _ C _ / _ _

$2K Tossup: RHYME TIME

_ A I _
_ H A R E

Kelly would love a FAIR SHARE of the winnings like the other players tonight.

TRIP WEDGE: Sun Peaks Resort & Lodge

Round 1: PHRASE

First up are five T’s for $3,250, but then the BANKRUPT near $650. Second, Kimberly calls a dud of R. Third, Scott picks a $600 N, buys an A, but the same BANKRUPT gets him too. Kelly restarts w/ a $700 S, buys two O’s and an I, picks up the Wild Card w/ an L, and buys six E’s. After a $1,200 M pair…

T _ E _ / _ O N ‘ T
M A _ E / T _ E M
L I _ E / T _ E _
_ S E _ / T O

…she says “THEY DON’T MAKE THEM LIKE THEY USED TO” for $1,650.

SOLE DUD: R (Kimberly)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Kelly and Scott)

Kelly: $3,650 WC/Kimberly: $0/Scott: $1K


Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Kimberly insta-BANKRUPTs the same way like everybody else. Scott secondly selects two $800 N’s, two $650 S’s, four E’s, three $900 T’s, two I’s, a U and two A’s to clean out the vowels…

_ O T / & / S U N N _
_ E A T _ E _
_ O _ E _ A S T E _

…but he misses the last word by a latter w/ HOT & SUNNY WEATHER FORECASTED. Kelly then puts up three $600 R’s, and two $550 H’s…

H O T / & / S U N N _
_ E A T H E R
_ O R E _ A S T E R

HOT & SUNNY WEATHER FORECASTER is right for another $2,900.

SOLE DQ: Scott’s one-letter missolve

Kelly: $6,550 WC/Kimberly: ZIP/Scott: $1K


Classic Bonus Puzzle (1992): PHRASE
This guy got no help from CHPO…

R _ _ S E / _
R _ C _ _ S

…but he nailed RAISE A RUCKUS.


PP/Express Round: FOOD & DRINK

Scott’s first call of N is no good while he’s on the Cabela’s gift tag. Second, Kelly puts up a $700 T, a FP O, a $3,500 P, and two S’s courtesy of her WC. Next up are four E’s, a $600 L, an $800 H, the last vowel of A and a $900 F before we see…

T O P – S H E L F
_ E _ E _ A _ E S

…in addition to another $13K, she’ll have some TOP-SHELF BEVERAGES at the SECRETS Capri Riviera CANCUN worth $7K.

INSTA-DUD: N (Scott)

Kelly: $26,550 cash & trip/Kimberly: ZILCH/Scott: $1K

It’s all Scott — he picks a $500 N, three $600 S’s, two E’s and I’s, two $600 G’s, and six T’s for three times the value he got from the last spin…

S E T T I N G / T _ E
S T _ _ _ / S T _ _ I G _ T

…he’s SETTING THE STORY STRAIGHT for $8,200 more.


Kelly: $26,550 cash & trip/Kimberly: ZILCH/Scott: $11,200


Speed-Up: PLACE

It’s a $1,500 FS. Two W’s are placed at the top…

D _ W N T _ W N
_ _ _ N / S T R _ _ T

…and Scott went DOWNTOWN MAIN STREET to $4,500.

Kelly: $26,550 cash & trip/Kimberly: $1K GOOSEEGG/ Scott: $15,700

GT: $43,250


$100K Bonus Round
Kelly lands on the N of WIN.

Category: THING
Here’s a trio of letters to get her started…

_ _ _ _ E _ _ _
_ R _ _ R _ _

CHGO does her…

_ C _ _ E _ _ C
_ R O G R _ _

…she gets the second word wrong w/ PROGRESS, so she doesn’t graduate from this ACADEMIC PROGRAM w/ the keys to the Compass.

    Kelly did a good job, but she needed CDMA in the BR.

    My rating: 7

    BTW all of tonight’s contestants were engaged at the time of the taping. Interesting…

    When we going to get a BR win? We only got just one win so far in 2016. Anyway 2 contestants score in 5 digit land. And a BR loss lowers my rating. And Wheel wasn’t so kind to Kimberly.
