Mystery Round: SAME NAME

Lauren‘s first choices are a $550 R, but the E lets her down again. Katie secondly strikes out w/ S while on the MW near LaT. Third, Craig also whiffs w/ T while he’s on the Vegas trip. Lauren resumes her play w/ four N’s for $2,600, the three vowels that isn’t U, and a $600 G…

O N I O N / &
_ I A _ O N _
R I N G

…she solves ONION & DIAMOND RING for $2750.

DUDS: E (Lauren), S (Katie), T (Craig)

Katie: ZERO/Craig: $3,950/Lauren: $3,750

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Katie‘s next chance to score begins w/ a $1,200 pair of T’s, two O’s, a $900 H, two $700 S’s, three I’s, and two E’s, followed by a $500 F, an N for the Bicycle Playing Cards gift tag (this apparently is the GT all week long), the other two vowels, a $500 R, a $700 M, and three $650 L’s before she tries to solve all this…

T H I S / _ I L L
_ U T / A / S M I L E
O N / _ O U R / F A _ E

THIS WILL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE ma’am — your first $7,400 and a trip to the Blackbird Caye Resort in BELIZE worth $8,340.

PR

Katie IDs the man on the $1 bill, GEORGE WASHINGTON.

Round 4: AROUND THE HOUSE

Coming from her mouth next are a $1K pair of T’s, a $650 H, but the E fails a lady for the third time tonight. Second for Craig are a $500 N, three A’s, a $500 D, four O’s, two $600 R’s and the last vowel of I. But after a $1,500 S trio is B for bad. Lauren then picks off the $800 L, $600 C and M singles, and the FP C to complete the board…

A R M C H A I R S / A N D:
F O O T S T O O L S

…and win another $2,500.

Katie: $15,740 cash & trip/Craig: $3,950/Lauren: $6,250

Round 5: LIVING THINGS

Craig first FPs both a dud of A and three E’s, but it’s S-U time…

_ _ _ / E _ _ _ _ _ _
_ _ E E _ _ _ _

…w/ a $1,500 FS. He calls the two S’s on his next turn…

_ _ _ / E _ _ _ _ S H
S H E E _ _ _ _

…and solves OLD ENGLISH SHEEPDOG for three grand.

SOLE DUD BEFORE FS: A (Craig)

NO BANKRUPT TRASH

—————

$100K Bonus Round
Katie lands on the A of GAME.

Category: PHRASE
Easy, at least IMO…

_ E R _
_ N S _ _ _ T _ _ L

CDMI adds a pair of the hot vowel…

_ E R _
I N S I _ _ T _ _ L

…but this ain’t VERY INSIGHTFUL — she TOTALLY BLOWS IT w/ NERD INSTITUTE and flushes the $50K down the drain.

$5K SPIN ID: AN4104722 (not my ID unfortunately)

MY RATING: 5

      It has to happen often. So my rating stands at a 5 and not a 4 thanks to Katie round 3 Big win . We better step it up with a BR win within the next 3 days this week or it could be like season 29 Big Money Week.
