EPISODE #6432: AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

$1K Tossup: FUN & GAMES

H _ T T I _ G / A
_ O _ E / R U N

La Shaun was HITTING A HOME RUN. And she’s the only lady on this panel…

La Shaun Daniels: customer care consultant who served in the Army and has a daily driver camp which is put into car shows (she’s also won the Best Display award the past four yrs.) from Jacksonville, FL
Chris Canter: sales exec. for general agency from Highlands Ranch, CO
Daniel McNees: business mgmt. student from La Mirada, CA, by way of Seattle

$2K Tossup: PHRASE

_ H _ _ / I S / M Y
_ U C K Y / _ A _

Chris gets the first word wrong w/ THAT, but Daniel wisely says “THIS IS MY LUCKY DAY”.

TRIP WEDGE: Inn of the Patriots Bed and Breakfast Hotel in Grover, NC
Gift Tag: Vermont Country Store

Round 1: FOOD & DRINK

His first letters are a $900 N, a $650 T, two E’s and five A’s, followed by a $1,600 pair of R’s, the rest of the non-U vowels, but then the LaT. Second, La Shaun digs up three $700 S’s, a $600 F, three $650 L’s, and a $1,200 pair of C’s. Here’s the board…

A / S T A C _ / O F
S I L _ E R / _ O L L A R
_ A N C A _ E S

…she orders A STACK OF SILVER DOLLAR PANCAKES worth $5,850.

SOLE LaT: Daniel

Chris: $0/Daniel: $2K/La Shaun: $6,850

 

Mystery/Crossword Round: NOW THAT’S HOT!

La Shaun’s initial picks are an $1,100 pair of S’s, an E, but then the sole dud vowel of I. Second, Chris gets the gift tag w/ an N, buys the O and U singles for $500, but then hits the MDW’s left side to give back the gift tag. Going down Daniel’s road third are an $1,100 pair of L’s, four A’s, a $1,200 pair of C’s, but then the same MDW BANKRUPT to lose $2,050. La Shaun follows w/ an $800 H, but then T for terrible. After Chris BANKRUPTs near TD, Daniel puts up three R’s and a K for $14K. Here are the words…

(S)(_)(A)(R)(K)(L)(E)(R)(S)
(U)              –   (A)
(N)               –  (_)
–  –    – (C)(H)(A)(R)(C)(O)(A)(L)

(This is probably the best I could think of for formatting.)

He solves SPARKLERS, SUN, LAVA (and) CHARCOAL to win that amount.

DUDS: I, T (both by La Shaun)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (both men including two by Chris)

Chris: ZIP/Daniel: $16K/La Shaun: $6,850

 

PP/Express Round: LIVING THINGS

The scoreless Chris is off and running w/ two S’s for the 1/2 CAR near $900, a $650 R, two E’s, three $500 T’s and an I. Next up are $2K worth of four H’s, two O’s, a $900 G, the other two vowels, and a $1K pair of F’s. He then gives back to the plate to solve this…

H U _ _ _ A _ _
_ H A _ E S / R I G H T
O F F / T H E / _ O A S T

…he’s won his first $5,800 and will be seeing HUMPBACK WHALES RIGHT OFF THE COAST at the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel in MAUI worth $6,474.

PR

Chris: $12,274 cash & HI/Daniel: $16K/La Shaun: $6,850

 

$3K Tossup: EVENT

_ A _ D S L I D E
_ _ _ _ O R _

There won’t be a LANDSLIDE VICTORY for either man, but Chris is just less than a thousand bucks behind the other man.

Round 4: LANDMARK

After he starts w/ a $900 R and two E’s, it’s S-U time…

_ E _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ E R
_ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _

…w/ another $1,500 FS. After somebody puts up the frontloading D…

D E _ _ L S / T _ _ E R
_ N / _ _ _ _ _ N _

Chris locates DEVILS TOWER IN WYOMING for $5,150.

DUDS (after FS): C (Daniel), H (La Shaun)

FINAL SCORES
Chris: $20,424 cash & HI/Daniel: $16K/La Shaun: $6,850

GT: $43,274
BANKRUPT TRASH: $3,050 cash & GT

 

$100K Bonus Round
Chris lands on the I of AMERICA’S.

Category: THING
The second word’s important…

R E _ S _ _ L E
_ _ _

PGHO doesn’t add too much more…

R E _ S _ _ L E
_ _ G

…he gets that bottom word wrong w/ MUG and BUG, so he won’t be taking the $40K from Harry’s REUSABLE BAG.

$5K SPIN ID: LC9667157

MY RATING: 6

    I know Chris Canter not win $40K envelope on bonus round because he not solved Reusable bag. No perfect week on bonus round final week of 33rd season.

    Well what would had been a disappointing show suddenly turned out to be an okay Maingame with 2 Men winning in 5 Digits. Chris didn’t solve the BR and No Perfect BR Week.

    My rating: stands at 6
