WoF Recap: January 25, 2016

There will be teams this week and the next to weeks, so the Fiesta will be out of play.


$1K Tossup: PERSON

_ _ / B E S T
B U D D _

Chanelle and Ti’ler are on the board w/ MY BEST BUDDY. The first three young duos this week…

Chanelle & Ti’ler: the former’s in 11th Grade while the latter’s in 9th Grade (they met in bible study)
David & Mark: HS Juniors who are in the marching/jazz band together & are the presidents of a juggling club
Grace & Kate: juniors from Santa Barbara who are members of a school’s multimedia arts & design academy; Grace’s a cheerleader while Kate plays lacrosse

$2K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

F _ E _ H
B _ _ _ _ _ R R I _ S

David & Mark totally miscount their letters as they say FRESH BERRIES.

F _ E _ H
B _ _ _ _ E R R I _ S

Grace tries to blurt out the answer, but they didn’t buzz in next — it’s Chanelle and Ti’ler who triple up w/ FRESH BLUEBERRIES.

FEATURED TRIP: The Mile North Hotel in Chicago
Mon./Wed./Fri. Gift Tag: Zappos

Round 1: FUN & GAMES

C & T get started w/ a $600 N but then the BANKRUPT near TD. Second, the boys fall for the G trap while they’re on the WC. Third, G & K call up two $650 R’s, a $700 T, three E’s, two TD S’s, two A’s, but then L for loss. C & T then call two TD M’s…

A M _ S E M E N T
_ A R _ / R _ _ E S

…they solve AMUSEMENT PARK RIDES to keep the $5K.

DUDS: G (boys), L (G & K)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Chanelle & Ti’ler

G & K: $0/C & T: $8K/D & M: $0


Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

Those guys pick up the WC this time w/ two R’s, then they say three $600 T’s, one E and three A’s, and the SL bonus of three G’s before hitting the MDW’s left side to lose $5,400 and the WC. G & K then semi-spingle for a $600 N and two I’s…

G R A _ _ A T I _ N
G I _ T

…they’ve won a GREAT GRADUATION GIFT in the form of their first $2K.


G & K: $2K/C & T: $8K/D & M: ZERO


PP/Express Round: WAYD?

G & K first spin up the same MDW BANKRUPT. Second, C & T uncover two $500 N’s, a G for that MDW, two obvious I’s, but then R for roadblock. The boys are third in line w/ a $3,500 S, a $700 T, an E, two A’s to clean out the vowels, a $500 H, but then M for mistake (they we’re thinking MATCHING for the first word). G & K then lights up a $7K pair of C’s only to lose it right back to the same normal BANKRUPT. C & T then put up a $900 P…

_ A T C H I N G
P E _ I C A N S

…in addition to another $1,650, they’ll be WATCHING PELICANS on their trips to the Rincon Beach Resort in PUERTO RICO worth $11,600.

DUDS: R (C & T), M (boys)

G & K: $2K/C & T: $21,250 cash & P.R. MDW/D & M: ZIP


$3K Tossup: PHRASE

_ _ T / _ F
_ _ _ S / _ _ _ _ D

C & T sweep ’em and their new total isn’t so much OUT OF THIS WORLD — $24,250 in cash & trips.

Round 4: THING

Unfortunately, they spin up the BANKRUPT near $650 to give up that MDW. Second, the boys LaT out. Third, G & K are caught by the same BANKRUPT they got late last round (that’s their third one of the game). As we start fresh again w/ C & T, they pick off a $650 R, two E’s, a $600 N, a FP A, a $600 S, but then the LaT. After those boys BANKRUPT near TD, G & K proceed to call a $600 M, two FP I’s, and C for crud. C & T LaT again, allowing the boys to say a $5K T and a $700 G…

_ I _ E _

…they’ll see STREAMING VIDEO of them finally winning their first $5,700.

LaTs: 3 (C & T 2x, boys)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (all teams)

G & K: $2K/C & T: $24,250 cash & P.R./D & M: $5,700


It’s another $1,600 FS. After those girls in the middle want the E…

S E _ _ R _ T _
G _ _ R _

…this SECURITY GUARD allows them to take another $2K.

SOLE DUD: N (Grace & Kate)

G & K: $2K/C & T: $26,250 cash & P.R./D & M: $5,700

GT: $33,950
BANKRUPT TRASH (minus those two extras): $13K


$100K Bonus Round:
We’re using the all-cash format here this week. Ti’ler spins up the M of GAME.

Category: THING
RSTLNE reveals…

_ _ _ R
_ _ _ _ _ N _ T _ _ N

CHDA only adds two of the vowel…

_ _ _ R
_ _ A _ _ N A T _ _ N

…I hope YOUR IMAGINATION doesn’t hinder you, ladies…they’ve solved w/ just one second left to break the losing streak and leave w/ $59,250 cash & trips.

    Finally, First BR win ending a 7 day slump and a 5 day slump for the Second half. Thanks to Chanelle and Ti’ler winning the BR, it resulting in a Good episode.

    My rating: 7

    The yellow girls won out of luck IMO. But that BR solve was pretty good!

    My rating: 7.5

    Stupid Bankrupt negating the girls chance at $1M. Guess I better shake that obsession with the $1M off.

    Still, the girls shocked me with that solve!

    My rating: Same as Andy’s.

      I wasn’t so shocked. That BR was actually pretty easy.
