Cassie and Jordan solve EXTREME SPORTS.

FEATURED TRIP: NYC’s Roosevelt Hotel

Round 1: WAYD?

A $600 S gets them started, but their next call of L stands for loss. J & N secondly call two $550 N’s, a $500 G, three I’s, two O’s, two $600 H’s, a $900 F and two $500 M’s…

F I N I S H I N G
M _ / H O M _ _ O _ _

…they ain’t gonna be FINISHING MY HOMEWORK, but they’ve scored another $4,200.

SOLE DUD: L (C & J)

C & J: $2K/J & N: $5,200/K & S: $0

 

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

This round’s all J & N — they say three $650 N’s, two A’s, a $700 R, an O, an F for the NYC wedge, three E’s, two $700 D’s, and a $500 G…

D A _ R __ _ E E N
O F / E N G _ A N D

…I wonder if there’s anybody in the world called the DAIRY QUEEN OF ENGLAND as they solve for $4,300 plus the $10,340 trip (tickets to “The Woods Man” included).

PR!

C & J: $2K/J & N: $19,840 cash & trip/K & S: ZIP

PP/Express Round: PLACE

Now that we finally get to hear from K & S, they spin their way two $550 T’s, four E’s, two A’s, but then the LaT. Second, C & J light up a TD R but that’s all taken back by the BANKRUPT near $650. Third, J & N say S while on EXPRESS and hop aboard.

Next Choices: N…U ($2K gone)

After the boys fall victim to the same BANKRUPT and give back $600, C & J proceed to put up a $900 M, a $600 W, three O’s to finish off the vowels, two $600 H’s, and a $650 L. Board…

A W E S O M E
_ E A _ H _ R O N T
H O T E L

…they’ve won $3,100 and a trip to an AWESOME BEACHFRONT HOTEL — the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort in HAWAII worth $12,200.

SOLE LaT: Boys
BANKRUPTS: 3 (everybody)

C & J: $17,300 cash & HI/J & N: $19,840 cash & NY/K & S: NO LUCK

 

$3K Tossup: THING

G _ R _ / _ _ W E R

Julia & Natalie prove to have GIRL POWER.

Round 4: FOOD & DRINK

J & N oddly start w/ a C, and it’s not there. Second for the guys are a $500 N, E and A singles, but then H for hush. C & J are third in line w/ a $700 R, a $500 S, an I, a $500 T, a $650 D, and the last vowel of U, followed by two $800 M’s, a $550 X, and the $600 W to complete the board…

W A R M
M I X E D / N U T S

…and win another $4,600; the gap between both girl teams is now $940.

DUDS: C (J & N), H (boys)

C & J: $21,900 cash & HI/J & N: $22,840 cash & NY/K & S: GOOSEEGG ALERT

Speed-Up: PERSON

$1,550 per consonant to close out the week. One T, two R’s, an N (the guys tried to call this out of turn) and an S are up…

_ R _ _ _

Cassie & Jordan forego calling the L’s and just solve DRILL SERGEANT for $3,100 and the comeback win.

    For any future contestants reading this, NEVER solve a speed-up round without calling a consonant first, they lost $3,100 by not calling those two L’s. If I remember correctly, this happened years ago during a $6K speed-up round also during a Teen Best Friends Week, and they lost $18,000 by not calling a triple consonant, I can’t remember what the puzzle was or the consonant they should’ve called offhand, but I remember it happened.
