EPISODE #6374: AMERICA’S GAME

The set on this St. Patty’s Day is Fun & Fit.

$1K Tossup: PROPER NAME

M _ R _ _ _
_ _ S H _ N _ _ _ N

Shanna IDs the First Lady of the U.S. as MARTHA WASHINGTON. Two players on this panel w/ the same last name (but not related, of course)…

Shanna Flora: married to a cowboy from Alvin, TX
Eunice Lee: daycare worker & dog rescuer who makes hula hoops & does hula dancing from Brooklyn
John Lee: real estate inspection specialist for the 5th-largest pest control co. in the nation from Atlanta

$2K Tossup: PHRASE

_ O O / _ U C _
_ N _ O _ M _ T I O N

We weren’t giving TOO MUCH INFORMATION, but Shanna doesn’t know the last word and Eunice gets control.

TRIP WEDGE: American Cruise Line river cruise

Round 1: PERSON

She duds out on the spot w/ N. Second, John calls up a $1K pair of R’s, buys E and A singles, lights up a $1,300 T pair, but then buys a worthless I. Third, Shanna also strikes out w/ S. Back to Eunice who puts in three H’s for $7,500, four O’s to wipe out the vowel shop, a $550 B, and a $1K pair of L’s before we see…

H O L L _ _ O O _
H E A R T T H R O B

…she realizes that Brad Pitt is one example of a HOLLYWOOD HEARTTHROB for $8,800.

DUDS: N (Eunice), I (John), S (Shanna)

Shanna: $1K/Eunice: $10,800/John: $0

 

Mystery Round: SAME NAME

John leads off w/ a $550 R, two E’s, but then T for trap while on the River Cruise. Second, Shanna tacks on a $600 N, six A’s, a $600 S, a $900 L, two $700 K’s, and the last vowel of O before saying a C while on the MW near LaT and declining a $3K gamble (that was the BANKRUPT one). After a $3,500 D…

A N C _ O R A _ E / &
_ A K E D
A L A S K A

…she solves ANCHORAGE & BAKED ALASKA for $7,500.

SOLE DUD: T (John)

Shanna: $8,500/Eunice: $10,800/John: ZERO

 

PP/Express Round: PLACES

Shanna insta-BANKRUPTs on the MDW’s left side. Second, Eunice picks up the 1/2 CAR near $900 w/ two S’s, buys an E, but runs into the other MDW BANKRUPT to lose $750 and the plate. Third in line, John takes a $500 R, four A’s, an N for the Beyond the Rack gift tag, and three I’s before the LaT strikes. After Shanna BANKRUPTs again w/ the one near $3,500, Eunice lights up a $1K pair of B’s and four C’s to triple up…

_ A C I _ I C
& / C A R I B B E A N
C _ A S _ S

…she’ll be seeing the PACIFIC & CARIBBEAN COASTS on the $6K caravan.com PANAMA TOUR.

SOLE LaT: John
BANKRUPTS: 3 (ladies, incl. two by Shanna)

Shanna: $8,500/Eunice: $19,800 cash & trip/John: ZIP

 

$3K Tossup: THING

T H _ / _ _ A C E
S I _ N

John’s still stuck at zero w/ THE PLACE ____.

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

Shanna just barely flashes THE PEACE SIGN.

Round 4: EVENT

The T fails Shanna at the start. Second for Eunice are three $900 N’s, two $600 G’s, two I’s and A’s, a $650 W, and the leftover E and O singles…

W I N N I N G / A
G O _ _ / _ E _ A _

…she isn’t WINNING A GOLD MEDAL, but another $3,550.

INSTA-DUD: T (Shanna)

Shanna: $11,500/Eunice: $23,350 cash & trip/John: NO LUCK

 

Speed-Up: FOOD & DRINK

$1,600 per consonant this time. Midway in the round, John uncovers the P but flubs the $4,800 solve w/ SPICY CREAM MUSTARD (it fits, but I don’t think there’s such a thing called that). Shanna then puts up the M…

S P _ _ _ / _ R _ _ _
M _ S T _ R D

…she tastes some SPICY BROWN MUSTARD for $3,200.

SOLE BLOWN SOLVE: John

FINAL SCORES
Shanna: $11,500/Eunice: $23,350 cash & trip/John: $1K GOOSEEGG

GT: $35,850
BANKRUPT TRASH (plate not included): $750

 

$100K Bonus Round
Eunice spins that BW to the M of AMERICA’S.

Category: THING
This fairly big one’s easy…

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

She’s looking pretty good after calling CDFA…

A _ T _ _ R _ _ A T _ _ N
C _ D E

…this AUTHORIZATION CODE grants us the chance for a perfect BR week tomorrow! Too bad for Eunice, though, because all she gets is the $33K for a final total of $56,350 cash & trip.

$5K SPIN ID: TC8139132

MY RATING: 7
