Peter triples up with CUSTOM-MADE SHOES.

FEATURED TRIP: A CheapTickets trip to Romania worth $7,900

Round 1: SAME LETTER

He oddly starts with the first letter of his name, and it’s unsurprisingly a dud. Kim lights up a non-negative $550 N but then hits LaT. Laura calls a $700 R and three E’s but strikes out with the S. Peter lights up a $500 L, two A’s, a $700 B, and an I before missing again with the T. After Kim loses that $550 to the MDW’s left side, Laura picks up the Romania trip with the SL bonus of three C’s…

C _ L _ _ B I A N

C _ _ _ E E / &

…and smells the COLOMBIAN COFFEE & CREAM for $10,850 cash and trip.

SOLE BANKRUPT and LaT: Kim

Peter: $3K/Kim: $0/Laura: $10,850 cash & Romania

The Spanish hosts send us to commercial break.

Mystery Round: AROUND THE HOUSE (announced by the hosts from Georgia)

Hoping for better luck, Kim lights up a $2,400 N quartet and two E’s before lighting up a T on the MW near LaT…but she’ll regret flipping it over. Laura‘s next picks are a $700 M, three I’s, a $1,200 L pair, four A’s, a $1,600 C pair, and a $700 B, but then she BANKRUPTS near $650 to lose $3,700. Peter lights up three $600 F’s and two $700 H’s…

…and he can buy a MAHOGANY CABINET FULL OF FINE CHINA with the $3,200 he’s just pocketed.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (ladies)

Peter: $6,200/Kim: ZIP/Laura: $10,850 cash & Romania

Repeating Classic Bonus Puzzle: FORGE AHEAD

Express/Prize Puzzle Round: WAYD?

Laura picks up the ½-CAR near $600 with a pair of T’s before buying two E’s and an I. After picking up the other plate with two H’s, she lights up two S’s for $1,400 and painfully LaTs out to leave $2,900 and the Fiesta on the table. Peter FPs three O’s and lights up a $500 N but then BANKRUPTS near TD almost immediately. Kim calls the obvious G for $550 and an $800 M before clearing out the vowels with two A’s. She then picks up the gift tag with two C’s and lights up an $800 R before going for the solve…

Peter‘s COOL AS A CUCUMBER, but that $6,800 solve is just not enough for the win .
