Round 1: AROUND THE HOUSE
First up for the middle couple are a $900 N, two E’s, an S for the WDW trip, an A, but then the LaT. Second, the Gorees call up a $2,500 T, three I’s, two K’s for the Maui Jim gift tag, and three $600 C’s, but they too hit LaT. Third, the Duncans uncover a $500 B and a $700 P, but the BANKRUPT near $650 steals their $1,200. That gives the Chatignys another chance…but not for long, because they miss w/ M. Afterwards…
