Mystery Round: SAME NAME

Jens strikes out on the spot w/ S while on the WC. Second, Ebonie BANKRUPTs near $650. Third, Dana tries a $700 T, buys triple A’s, but then duds out w/ N while on the MW near LaT. Jens tries again w/ a FP E, two $800 R’s, but then a worthless O. Ebonie follows w/ a $700 H, but then L for loss. Dana then puts two B’s and C’s ($700 and $900 respectively for those)…

B _ R T H _ A _ / &
C R A B
C A _ E

…she solves BIRTHDAY & CRAB CAKE for $3,450 (this should’ve been $3,650 after she landed on $700 the first time).

DUDS: S (Jens), N (Dana), O (Jens), L (Ebonie)
INSTA-BANKRUPT: Ebonie

Jens: $1K/Ebonie: NIL/Dana: $9,950

 

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

First, Ebonie rattles off three N’s for $1,650, two A’s, a $650 G, two $700 L’s, and three I’s, after which she says a $1,600 pair of D’s, a $1,300 pair of S’s, but then a baddie of K. Dana secondly spins up a $600 R, the last vowel of three O’s, but then the other normal BANKRUPT to lose $350.Over to Jens w/ a $3,500 T, a $600 F, but then the LaT. Ebonie then gets the Pendleton gift tag w/ M…

_ O _ _ I N G
F R O M / I S L A N D
T O / I S L A N D

…she wins her first $7,600 cash & gift tag and will be HOPPING FROM ISLAND TO ISLAND on the MSC CARIBBEAN CRUISE.

SOLE DUD: K (Ebonie)
SOLE LaT: Jens
SOLE BANKRUPT: Dana

Jens: $1K/Ebonie: $13,600 cash & prizes/Dana: $9,950

 

$3K Tossup: FUN & GAMES

_ P E E D
_ _ _ T _ _ G

Uh Jens, I don’t think there’s such a competition called SPEED WRITING.

_ P E E D
_ _ _ T _ N G

Dana is now $650 off the lead by SPEED SKATING.

Round 4: PHRASE

First on her list this go-round are four FP E’s, two $650 R’s, an O, an $800 Y, but then N for no. Second for Jens are a $600 B, but it’s S-U time…

Y O _ R / _ E _ R E _ / _ _
_ _ _ E / _ _ _ _ / _ E

$1,800 is the consonant payoff. One M and two T’s later…

Y O _ R / _ E _ R E T / _ _
_ _ _ E / _ _ T _ / M E

YOUR SECRET IS SAFE WITH ME — Dana makes the game-winning $5,450 solve.

DUDS (before S-U): N (Dana), B (Jens)

FINAL SCORES
Jens: $1K/Ebonie: $13,600 cash & prizes/Dana: $18,400

GT: $33K
BANKRUPT TRASH: $350

 

$100K Bonus Round

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

_ _ _ _
_ E _ T _ E R

HFPA gives her a couple key letters on top…

_ A _ P
_ E A T H E R

…Seattle tends to have DAMP WEATHER, but Dana still doesn’t know the first word for the $33K.
