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…

SOLE DUD: L (Leanne)

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…
