Hans is incorrect w/ HOMEMADE WAFFLES (I thought of that too)…and Christine causes me to cringe by repeating said response.

Christine is literally ACTING ON IMPULSE to get on the board that time (and it sounded as if she had won something big).
FEATURED B&B TRIP: Abbeymoore Manor in Victoria, BC worth $7K
Round 1: SONG TITLE
She leads the way w/ a $550 T, two E’s, but then the BANKRUPT near top dollar to lose the $300 remainder. Second, Michelle picks up the bedandbreakfast.com gift tag w/ an H, buys two A’s, but then hits the other normal one to lose $1,250 cash & GT. Third, Hans FPs a couple O’s, but he then gets the same BANKRUPT Christine got. After said middle player LOSES A TURN, Michelle plucks a $7,500 trio of N’s, and buys the other two vowels…
T H A N _ / _ O U / _ O _
_ E I N _ / A / _ _ I E N _
…this is the theme song for “The Golden Girls” and Michelle has solved “THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND” for $7K.
SOLE LaT: Christine
BANKRUPTS: 3 (whole panel)
Hans: $0/Christine: $2K/Michelle: $8K
Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Early leader Michelle gets this board started w/ four $600 R’s, three E’s, two A’s, two N’s for the Canada trip, and an O, followed by a $700 D, the other two vowels, an F for the 1/2 CAR near pink $600, a $500 T, three $650 S’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to forfeit $12,800 cash & trip as well as her plate. Hans then says a $650 H and an $800 M…

…FURNITURE MOVERS AND SHAKERS is right for $1,450.
SOLE BANKRUPT: Michelle
Hans: $1,450/Christine: $2K/Michelle: $8K
PP/Express Round: LIVING THINGS
Hans‘ first selections here are a $1,200 pair of S’s, two T’s to double up, two E’s, but then A for awful. Second, Christine wastes a spin w/ the BANKRUPT near TD. Third, Michelle takes a $1,200 R pair, but then C for crud. Hans follows suit w/ buys of three I’s, but then the other dud vowel of this board (O). Christine then says two $600 B’s, two U’s, a $700 F, a $600 L, a $650 D, and two $550 M’s, then we have…

…in addition to another $4K, she’ll see some HUMMINGBIRDS & BUTTERFLIES on her trip to the Lapaz Waterfall Gardens in COSTA RICA worth $6,100.

THE KITCHEN IS OPEN for Hans to cook up some more money.
Consonants are worth $1,700 each. After a D appears at the very end of this puzzle…

…Hans solves QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD for $5,100.
SOLE DUD: C (Michelle)
Hans: $9,550/Christine: $12,100 cash & C.R./Michelle: $8K
BANKRUPT TRASH (minus plate): $14,350 cash & prizes
IMO, Christine looked very confused quite a bit. She’s been looking at the wrong arrow very often and doesn’t realize she needs to hold on after Pat congratulated Michelle on her payoff tonight.
$100K Bonus Round
The overwhelmed Christine has spun the W.
Fairly easy one, at least IMO…

HPCI might do it for her…

…or so I thought — she’s stuck w/ first word guesses ending in -IT instead of -IX because it was MIX THINGS UP and she just threw away the $33K.
