LAST TRIP WEDGE THIS SEASON: American Cruise Lines river cruise

Round 1: LANDMARK

She beings the letter-picking process with a $550 N, three A’s and two I’s, three $500 T’s, a couple E’s, but then the MDW’s left side to lose $1,300. Second, Edgar lights up a $1,300 pair of S’s, the other two vowels, and a $1,300 pair of H’s. Board…

Mystery/Crossword Round: LOOK! UP IN THE SKY!

That man in the middle wastes a spin w/ the other MDW BANKRUPT. Second, Cristina picks up the river cruise w/ a P, buys an A, lights up a $600 T, and purchases two I’s, but next is N for negative. Third, Rachel comes up w/ an L while on the MW near LaT and obviously goes for it…$$$. Next up are a $700 S, three E’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to throw away $10,450. Edgar follows w/ two $900 C’s, the last vowel of O, a $700 M, a $650 K, but then a crucial dud of D. Cristina then completes the board w/ a $650 H and a $600 W…

–  (H)(A)(W)(K)

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

Current leader Cristina starts this answer w/ three $550 G’s, two I’s, but then the LaT. Second, Rachel runs into the other normal BANKRUPT. Third in line, Edgar lights up four N’s for $2,800, two O’s, three FP A’s, and three E’s. He follows w/ a $1,300 pair of T’s, a U, two H’s for that WC, a C for the bedandbreakfast.com gift tag, a FP R, a $1,300 pair of S’s, a $3,500 P, and a D courtesy of his WC before he tries to solve all of this…

S P E N D I N G
H O U R S / G A _ I N G
A T / T H E / O C E A N

…unfortunately, he blows that third word w/ GAMING, so he’s gonna have to give back at least $14,650 cash & GT when this round’s over. Cristina then completes the board w/ the $600 Z…

S P E N D I N G
H O U R S / G A Z I N G

_ _ T / _ _
_ _ R _ _ S _ T _

OUT OF CURIOSITY, did you get this one quickly like I did? Unfortunately for her, she wipes out of the game w/ GPHA and doesn’t win the Camaro.

$5K SPIN ID: RE1294745

-This not-so-hot season (only 64 BR wins, which is 10 down from last season) was starting to become the first since S21 to have no $100K winner at all. Thankfully, Mike Brannen on April 28 came through as well as Latoya Williams on May 25. Therefore, this season is the first since that awesome S30 to have more than one grand prize winner.

-Too  bad we’ve didn’t give away many cars in the BR, but at least it’s up from last season’s dubious record of 3.

-And let’s not forget about the epic maingame moments by Sheri Blank (Oct. 21) as well as Robert Santoli (March 25).

Have a great summer, people.

MY RATING: 6
