Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Chris’ first picks are a $900 R, but then S for sorry while on the WC. Second, Julia picks a $650 N, a T for that WC, triple E’s, but then repeats the N. Third, Kathy can’t capitalize on TD w/ D for dud. Chris’s second turn sees him getting the 1/2 CAR near $900 w/ two C’s, but then losing a turn w/ M. After Julia LaTs out, Kathy lights up twin L’s while on the MW near $650 and tries to multiply the $2K buyout by five…got it. But after a $1,300 pair of B’s and a U buy is the BANKRUPT near $3,500 to flush away $11,050. Chris then says a $900 K…

C _ N _ E _ _ R
B E L T

The struggling Julia starts this crucial round w/ three S’s for the other 1/2 CAR, buys three E’s, but then duds out w/ N. Kathy secondly takes a $1,200 R pair, two A’s, but she also gets the whistle blow for repeating the N. Chris thirdly uncovers an $800 T, and buys the rest of the vowel shop…

_ A R S
_ O U T I _ U E S
_ A _ _ E R I E S

…but he blows the solve w/ CAR, BOUTIQUES, GALLERIES. Julia tries again w/ an $1,800 pair of B’s, but here comes LaT. Kathy then picks off a $1,200 L pair….

B A R S
B O U T I _ U E S
_ A L L E R I E S

_ E R S _ _ A _ _ _ E _
_ _ _ E _ S E / _ _ A _ E

Category: THINGS
Should know what the second word is already…

_ _ L _ _
_ T E _ S

MBHI adds a key letter on top besides the obvious…

B _ L _ _
I T E M S

…but she still doesn’t know that first word, and won’t be placing BULKY ITEMS in the back of the Cadillac SRX. She’s yet another player who chokes bad after setting themselves up for a win.

    Okay show, But very disappointing why? Why did Chris said CAR, BOUTIQUES, GALLERIES? and a BR loss of a Car plummets the BR winning Percentage.

      Likewise A Big Game for Kathy winning $28K was the Only Big Highlight of the Show from Me.

    Kathy did a good job, but BULKY isn’t that easy to get.
