EPISODE #6388: SANDALS RESORTS WEEK

$1K Tossup: PLACE

_ _ _ E / N E S T

Daniel solves LOVE NEST. The guy at the end gets to be interviewed first…

Daniel Gonzalez: teacher who works w/ English language learners and he plays seven different instruments from Southgate, CA
Erica Shannon: Farmingdale ES teacher for 18 yrs. and currently teaches 2nd Grade from Ashland, IL
Ashley Schilperoort: marketing mgr. for anorthodontic practice from Kent, WA

$2K Tossup: PHRASE

_ ‘ M
O _ _ I _ I S _ I C

I’M OPTIMISTIC about Daniel, because he’s 2 for 2 so far.

Round 1: WAYD?

He gets the MDW right away w/ two G’s, FPs triple E’s, calls up a $500 N, and buys two I’s, then he says two R’s and S at $700 apiece, three A’s, and four T’s to add $2K more…

T R _ I N G
T _ / _ E E _ / A
S T R A I G _ T / _ A _ E

TRYING TO KEEP A STRAIGHT FACE, this guy’s perfect so far for another $4,100, and $7,100 altogether.

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Erica leads the way w/ a $1,400 pair of T’s and an L while on the MW near LaT. Under that is…$$$. Following her purchases of an A and three O’s, she puts in two M’s for $1,200, a $650 H, four E’s, and two C’s for the WC

H O M E – C O O _ E _
M E A L
T _ C _ E T

…she redeems a HOME-COOKED MEAL TICKET for $13,500.

PR #2

Erica: $13,500 WC/Ashley: $0/Daniel: $7,100 MDW

————–

PP/Express Round: THING

Ashley instantly strikes out w/ S while on the Maui Jim gift tag. Second, Daniel BANKRUPTs near $650 to say goodbye to that MDW. Third, Erica spins up a $500 R, three $650 N’s, O and I singles, but then the LaT. After Ashley says her second straight dud of H, Daniel digs up a $700 T, a single E, but then D for dud while on the 1/2 CAR near $600. Erica then chooses an $800 C, a $500 L, and three A’s to clean out the vowels…

_ A C A T I O N
_ L A N N E R

…after $3K gets deposited in her bank, this should be in her VACATION PLANNER — a trip to Beaches TURKS & CAICOS.

DUDS: S (Ashley), H (Ashley), D (Daniel)
SOLE LaT: Erica
INSTA-BANKRUPT: Daniel

Erica: $22,500 cash & trip WC/Ashley: NO LUCK/Daniel: $7,100

$3K Tossup: IN THE KITCHEN

W _ I S T _ I N G
T _ A K _ T T L E

Erica hears the sound of a WHISTLING TEAKETTLE to go to $25,500.

Round 4: RHYME TIME (one-wordy)

She picks off a $1K pair of R’s, an $800 C, and the sole good vowel of five A’s…

A _ R A C A _ A _ R A

ABRACADABRA — here’s another $1,550 for her.

PR #3

Erica: $27,050 cash & trip WC/Ashley: GOOSEEGG ALERT/Daniel: $7,100

Round 5: PERSON

First, Ashley makes it three duds in a row dating back to the PP Round w/ R. Daniel secondly finds a $500 T, two E’s, but nothing else w/ S. Erica thirdly uncovers a $5K N, but it’s S-U time…

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

…w/ a $1,500 FS. She calls the C on her next turn…

_ _ D E L
C _ T _ _ E N

…she proves to be a MODEL CITIZEN for another eight grand.

DUDS BEFORE FS: R (Ashley), S (Daniel)
SOLE DUD AFTER FS: H (Ashley)

FINAL SCORES
Erica: $35,050 cash & trip WC/Ashley: $1K GOOSEEGG/Daniel: $7,100

GT: $43,150
BANKRUPT TRASH: just the MDW

$100K Bonus Round
Say hi to the * envelope, Erica.

Category: THING
At the lead-off portion…

_ _ _ L _ _ _ T E
_ E _

CBDIG pretty much gives her the first word…

D _ _ L I C _ T E
_ E _

…she strikes out on the bottom word w/ BED,  so she doesn’t retrieve a DUPLICATE KEY for $33K.

$5K SPIN ID: CO9776009

MY RATING: 7

      You did a GREAT job, Daniel. Too bad your winning streak came to an end, but $7,100 is not a bad score.

        No regrets, I had a GREAT time! And the winnings will come in handy right after my wedding too! We were considering a Sandals resort for the honeymoon, but we are not big fans of butlers following us around.
