Heather rightly says “YOU SAID A MOUTHFUL”.
Round 1: PLACE
Two T’s for $1,100 get her started, but the N stops her just as quick. Second, Noelani calls up a $1,200 pair of R’s, buys A, E and I, but the I is the only bad vowel of this board. Third, Zach spins up a $1,300 pair of S’s, buys the other two vowels, but LaTs out. Heather then picks up a $7,500 P trio…
P A R T _
S U P P _ _

…she’s won $8,600 towards buying some things at a PARTY SUPPLY STORE like PartyCity (one of the gift tags offered on the show).

SOLE LaT: Zach
Heather: $10,600/Noelani: $1K/Zach: $0
Mystery Round: SAME LETTER
Noelani’s initial choices are a $1,200 pair of S’s, an E, two I’s, but the sole dud vowel of A stops her. Zach secondly FPs a couple O’s, lights up a $650 L, buys two U’s, and uncovers the SL Bonus of three $900 M’s. He then tries to solve this…
M O _ I E / &
M U S I _
M O _ U L S
…MOVIE & MUSIC MOGULS for $4,100.
SOLE DUD: A (Noelani)
Heather: $10,600/Noelani: $1K/Zach: $4,100
PP/Express Round: WAYD?
Zach leads off w/ a $1,200 pair of N’s, an I, two A’s, and two obvious $600 G’s, followed by an O, three E’s to wipe out the vowel shop, a T for the RICARDO Luggage gift tag, a $550 H, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to clean him out of $3,450 and luggage. Afterwards…

Round 4: THING
First up are a $550 T, two E’s, an A, three $900 S’s, and two O’s to clean out the vowels, but next is F for flunk. Noelani secondly strikes out w/ P, and it’s S-U time…
_ A S T – S E _ O _ _
