EPISODE #6341: BEACHES RESORTS FAMILY WEEK

VTR: Dec. 17 (next-to-last taping of ’15)

$1K Tossup: PHRASE

F _ M I L _ / _ _ M E

Eric & LB have had lots of FAMILY TIME. The first teams this month…

Eric & LB Nielsen: she’s a professor at Northwestern & this couple from Evanston, IL has been married for 23 yrs.
Robert & Shannon Crawford: he’s a physical therapist aboard the Gerald R. Ford out of Newport News and they’ve been married for about five yrs. (I presume they’re from VA)
Chris & Heather (last name unknown): she’s an acct. for a local government while he’s a web developer; they’re from San Luis Obispo

$2K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

_ O B _ _ E R
B _ S _ U _

Heather tastes some LOBSTER BISQUE for control.

FEATURED TRIP: Beaches Turks & Caicos worth $8K
Mon./Wed./Fri. Gift Tag: Maui Jim

Round 1: SONG LYRICS

C & H get started w/ a $1K pair of T’s, but the BANKRUPT near TD gets them just as quick. Second, the Nielsens call up two R’s for the WC, five E’s, a $600 F, an O, two $700 D’s, and three A’s…

_ _ E E T /D R E A _ _
A R E / _ A D E / O F
T _ _ _

…they solve the Eurythmics “SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THIS” for $2,250 when they could’ve gone for the S’s.

SOLE BANKRUPT: C & H

C & H: $2K/Nielsens: $3,250 WC/Crawfords: $0

 

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

The Nielsens lead off w/ a $550 T (LB wanted R), a $550 N, two E’s, three $550 D’s, and two O’s, followed by two $550 R’s, an A, a $650 M, and two $650 S’s (she wanted to say the L’s)…

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

“DRESSED TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD” is right for $5,050 (they were being consonative again).

PR

C & H: $2K/Nielsens: $8,300 WC/Crawfords: $0

 

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

Now that they’ve finally got their chance to spin, the Crawfords are off and running w/ two $700 N’s, two S’s and a G at $600 a pop, three I’s, but then the MDW’s right side to lose $2,950. Second, C & H call up a $700 C, O and A singles, two L’s for the 1/2 CAR near $600, and two $650 T’s, then…

_ _ _ _ _ I _ N C I N G
T O T A L / _ L I S S

…they’re EXPERIENCING TOTAL BLISS over a trip to the Sandals Grand ST. LUCIA worth $6K.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Crawfords

C & H: $10,500 cash & trip/Nielsens: $8,300 WC/Crawfords: NO LUCK

 

$3K Tossup: TV TITLE

_ E S A M E
S T R _ _ T

The Crawfords are scoreless no more w/ “SESAME STREET”.

Round 4: THING

First on their list are three $900 S’s, three $650 T’s, an A, a $500 C, but then the S-U signal…

A / _ _ S T _ _ C T
_ _ S S _ _ _ _ _ T _

…and it’s a $1,650 FS. One N, D and P later…

A / D _ S T _ N C T
P _ S S _ _ _ _ _ T _

…we have A DISTINCT POSSIBILITY of a close maingame finish, and that was the case w/ the Nielsens falling short by $200 w/ the $2K house minimum solve.

FINAL SCORES
C & H: $10,500 cash & trip/Nielsens: $10,300/Crawfords: $3K

GT: $23,800
BANKRUPT TRASH: $3,900

 

$100K Bonus Round
Star Ford is providing another of their vehicles and it’s a hot-looking Mustang Convertible. Chris spins up the I of SPIN.

Category: THING
Here’s a couple of letters for free…

_ _ N _ _ _ _
_ _ _ _ E

CPMO does some good…

_ _ N _ M _ C
_ O _ C E

…but they don’t solve w/ a DYNAMIC VOICE for that convertible and they’re the second-lowest winning champions this season.

$5K SPIN ID: AK7428601

MY RATING: 4

    Except for the Nielsens’ consonativity, the couples actually played better than their scores indicated, IMO.

    It was a very horrible show. A BR loss resulting this team to be the second lowest winning team.
