WoF Recap: September 23, 2016 — SHUTOUT ALERT #1 ALREADY



_ _ A N _ / S E Q _ _ _ A

Reggie spots California’s GIANT SEQUOIA TREES. One of these people will try to save us from an early BR shout on week 2 for the second year in a row…

Reggie Maclin: major insurance co. worker & DJ from Oklahoma City

Leanne Harvey: marketing director who was a former Minor League Baseball GM from Huntington Beach

Kristen Gray: graphic designer whose hubby’s a flight paramedic in Black Hawk helicopters from Ft. Benning, GA

$2K Tossup: PHRASE

H _ _ _ Y
_ _ _ _ _ D _ Y !

The legendary Bruce Springsteen just turned 67 today, as Reggie says “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” to triple up.

Round 1: PLACE

The letters he calls are a $1,400 pair of S’s, two A’s, six E’s, and a T for the MDW, after which come two O’s a $1,200 M pair, and a $800 H before we look at…

H O M E / T O / M A _ _
E _ _ A _ _ E _ E _
S _ E _ _ E S

…he solves HOME TO MANY ENDANGERED SPECIES for $2,650 and a new total of $5,650, but he could’ve gone for the N’s and D’s.



Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Leanne leads the way w/ a $600 T, four E’s and two A’s, an S for the National Parks tour (Pat says it’s over $9K), and an I to clean out the vowels, followed by three R’s for the Sierra Trading Post gift tag, an $800 N, but then L for loss of turn. Kristen next selects an H and obviously goes for what’s under the MW near LaT…oops. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Reggie BANKRUPTs near TD to give up the sparkly green wedge. That gives a Leanne a second chance…but not for long, because after a $600 F is the same normal BANKRUPT to take away $5,250 cash & GT plus the tour. Kristen then puts up a $1,200 C pair and a $700 P…

_ A _ I C

…she can buy some MAGIC CARPET FRESHENER (if there is one) w/ her first $1,900.

SOLE DUD: L (Leanne)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (whole gang)


PP/Express Round: THING

R for roadblock is how Kristen starts on the 1/2 CAR near $600. Second in line, Reggie rattles off a $1,300 pair of S’s, an E, two A’s, but then a baddie of I. Leanne then GOES ABOARD the EXPRESS after calling up triple T’s.

Next Choices: last vowel of four O’s…M…B…C…two N’s…F…D and Y

She’ll see one of these…

S O F T / S A N D Y
O C E A N / B O T T O M

…while at the Outrigger Waikiki Beach in OAHU worth $7,848.

DUDS: R (Kristen), I (Reggie)

Reggie: $5,650/Leanne: $18,598 cash & Oahu/Kristen: $1,900



P I _ _ _ R E
F R _ _ _

Reggie gets out a PICTURE FRAME to sweep the Tossups.

Round 4: PERSON

But he says an instant dud of S for sorry. Second for Leanne are two FP E’s, a $1,200 T pair, an A, but it’s S-U time…

_ _ T _ _ _ _
A _ _ E _ T _ _ E _

…w/ another $1,500 FS. That same woman calls a V on her next turn…

_ _ T D _ _ R
A D V E N T _ R E R

…she solves OUTDOOR ADVENTURER for another $6,950 worth of icing.

INSTA-DUD: S (Reggie)

Reggie: $8,650/Leanne: $25,548 cash & Oahu/Kristen: $1,900

GT: $36,098
BANKRUPT TRASH (MDW not included): $5,250 cash & GT plus the tour


$100K Bonus Round
Leanne lands on the G.

Category: THING
The first letters Vanna shows are…

_ _ _ E R _ _ L
_ _ _ _ E

PGHO is good for…

P O _ E R _ _ L
_ _ _ G E

only the first word, and we have our first BR shutout this season. There won’t be a POWERFUL IMAGE of her winning $45K.

    Aw RATS. First shutout already. I dunno if it would’ve been different if Reggie won the game instead of Leanne.

    My rating: 6
