WoF Recap: March 16, 2016

Thankfully, I’m not gonna have any family circumstances hinder me the rest of this week. Of course, I’m gonna need Bobby’s help for tomorrow and Friday as well as said days next week due to March Madness.

EPISODE #6373: AMERICA’S GAME

We’re on the dreaded B & B set.

$1K Tossup: LANDMARK

John isn’t my LITTLE BROTHER, but he’s right.

FEATURED TRIP: MileNorth Chicago

Round 1: WAYD?

He gets started w/ a $2,100 N trio, four I’s, a G for that MDW, but then the sole dud vowel of A for awful. Second, Asia also duds out w/ R. Third, Allison picks up the WC w/ two T’s, buys three E’s, but then BANKRUPTs near $650 to lose $750 and the WC. John then puts up an $800 S and two O’s…

…he’ll probably be BUYING ONLINE TICKETS ONLINE more after pocketing another $2,150.

DUDS: A (John), R (Asia)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Allison

Allison: $1K/John: $4,150 MDW/Asia: $0

 

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Asia’s first pickings are a $500 M but then T for trouble. Second, Allison takes a $1,300 pair of R’s, but then the LaT. Third, John can’t find any N’s. Back to Asia who puts in a $650 H, but the sole dud vowel of I stops her. Allison then says two S’s and goes for what’s under the MW near $650…$$$. After she buys four E’s and three O’s…

R E M O _ E _ E _
H O _ S E
O _ / _ _ R _ S

…she builds a REMODELED HOUSE OF CARDS for $10,800.

DUDS: T (Asia), N (John), I (Asia)
SOLE LaT: Allison

Allison: $11,800/John: $4,150 MDW/Asia: NOTHING

 

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

S for sorry is how Allison begins this round. John secondly digs up a FP O, three T’s for the Bed Bath & Beyond gift tag, two E’s and I’s, a $1,400 pair of R’s, and four A’s…

I T / _ I _ _ / T A _ E

IT WILL TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY, sir — a $6,300 trip to the Amsterdam Manor in ARUBA. He’s also earned another $3,150 cash & GT.

INSTA-DUD: S (Allison)

Allison: $11,800/John: $13,600 cash & prizes MDW/Asia: SCORELESS

 

$3K Tossup: RHYME TIME

S W _ _ _ _ R

I’m not a fan of SWEATER WEATHER, but Asia’s finally off the schneid.

Round 4: FOOD & DRINK

It’s all Asia here — she picks a $1K pair of M’s, a $600 D, and four S’s for $3,200…

M _ S S _ S S _ _ _ _
M _ D / _ _ _

…she quickly cooks up some MISSISSIPPI MUD PIE for $4,800.

Allison: $11,800/John: $13,600 cash & prizes MDW/Asia: $7,800

Round 5: THING

First on Allison’s radar are a $1,200 pair of S’s, three E’s, but then the LaT. Second for John are a $1K pair of R’s, the A and U to clean out the vowels, and a $1K pair of FP T’s…

T R E A S U R E

…he collects another $1,500 from this TREASURE CHEST.

HER 2ND LaT: Allison

Allison: $11,800/John: $15,100 cash & prizes MDW/Asia: $7,800

Speed-Up: PROPER NAME

We have yet another $1,500 FS. After a T pops up in the first word of this one liner…

_ _ R T _ / _ R _ _ _ S

John IDs country singer GARTH BROOKS for $4,500 and we finally have the first MDBR of 2016!

Allison: $11,800/John: $19,600 cash & prizes MDW/Asia: $7,800

GT: $39,200
BANKRUPT TRASH (WC not factored): $750

 

MILLION DOLLAR BONUS ROUND #7
After we see his dad holding the MDW, his better half Elliott, Chloe and her mom Penelope, I sure hope this playing will be a lucky one as he lands on the A of GAME.

Category: PHRASE
The right consonant in the last word could make or break him…

_ / _ E E L
_ _ _ _ _

PDCO gives him two of something…

_ / _ E E L
_ _ D D _

the D’s have saved him! And I FEEL GIDDY of what’s inside that envelope of truth…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…the bad news is that we STILL DON’T have a male millionaire on the program, but the good news is that he’s the second straight $50K winner for a final total of $69,600 cash & prizes!
