$1K Tossup: LIVING THINGS

_ E D W _ O D
T _ E E _

Jeff isn’t lost in these REDWOOD TREES. Next set of contestants go by these names…

Jeff Mangalin: nanotechnology tech at Univ. of WA who was previously in the A.F. from Seattle
Lannie Golden: school bus driver from Everett, WA (orig. from L.A.)
Danette Hedge: Sunnyside ES kindergarten teacher from Kirkland, WA

$2K Tossup: EVENT

G U I _ E _
W _ _ K I N G / _ _ _ R

Lannie didn’t need a GUIDED WALKING TOUR to solve this one.

TRIP WEDGE: NYC’s Roosevelt Hotel

Round 1: FOOD & DRINK

She kicks off w/ $650 N and G singles, two I’s, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to lose $1,050. Second, Danette FPs triple O’s, but then says S for sorry. Third, Jeff has the exact same fate as Lannie. Said middle lady tries again w/ a $600 T, but then L for loss. Danette follows w/ three $500 P’s, a U, a $900 H, but then the MDW’s left side to give back $2,150. After Jeff‘s $2,100 F trio…

P I P I N G / H O T
_ U P / O F / _ O F F _ _

…he sips a PIPING HOT CUP OF COFFEE .

DUDS: S (Danette), L (Lannie)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (all)

Jeff: $3,100/Lannie: $2K/Danette: $0

 

Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

Danette begins on a bad note w/ the other normal BANKRUPT. Second, Jeff strikes out w/ T. Third, Lannie instantly gets the SL Bonus of seven $650 S’s, then she buys four E’s, but duds out w/ N. Danette‘s second turn sees her saying a $650 R, four A’s, but then the T recall. Jeff is next w/ two H’s while on the MW near $650. He turns down the $2K offer for…$$$. Following a $550 W and the other three vowels (I was called on FP)…

S E A H A W _ S
S E A _ U _ _ S / &
S E A H O R S E S

…he spots these SEAHAWKS, SEAGULLS & SEAHORSES for $10,050.

DUDS: T (Jeff; repeated by Dannette), N (Lannie), I (Jeff)
INSTA-BANKRUPT: Danette

Jeff: $13,150/Lannie: $2K/Danette: NOTHING

 

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Jeff’s going aboard the EXPRESS right away after starting this round w/ three T’s.

Next Choices: five E’s…A…W…two R’s…H…two O’s…two N’s…two I’s (vowels gone)…S…two C’s…M, P and F

C O M E / O N / I N
T H E / W A T E R
I S / P E R F E C T

This is a BIG PR, because he’s won  $14K plus a trip to the Coconut Bay in ANTIGUA worth $8,603!

Jeff: $35,753 cash & Antigua/Lannie: $2K/Danette: NIL

 

$3K Tossup: WAYD?

_ A I N I _ G
_ R O U N _

Too bad the ladies aren’t even GAINING GROUND, as Jeff extends his lead even further.

Speed-Up: OCCUPATION

$1,700 per consonant this time. The G is uncovered late in this round…

M _ G _ _ _ N E
P _ B L _ S H E R

Jeff lands on the I of SPIN.

Category: WAYD?
First up…

_ _ _ N _

I wish he didn’t waste the I — he will NOT be GOING ABROAD w/ the $33K.

    Jeff needed those O’s (or A’s), but all three won something. Nice.

      But calling an I in the BR was the worst choice that Jeff could have done. He got more than what he lost in the BR

      My rating: 7 thanks to 2 Big round wins By Jeff
