WoF Recap: October 7, 2016 — SHUTOUT ALERT #2


$1K Tossup: WAYD?

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

Stephanie’s wrongly NEGOTIATING THE TRADE. Jared, however, is NEGOTIATING THE PRICE. Trying to stop our current skid are these people…

Jared Hagemann: software eng. from Sacramento (he and wife Laura lived in NZ for about a yr.)

Kristi Gurule: retail sales worker for 21 yrs. and also plays poker from Santa Fe (also lived in Phoenix)

Stephanie Sayegh: third year dental student at Loma Linda Univ. (her dad & sister are dentists) from West Covina

$2K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

_ A L T _ _
A _ M _ _ _ S

Jared eats some SALTED ALMONDS to triple up.

Round 1: TITLE

His first pick of T is a miss. Second, Kristi calls up a FP E, four S’s for 10 grand, two A’s and I’s, and five O’s to clean out the vowels. But she then strikes out w/ R to leave $9,250 on the table. Stephanie then gets the SS w/ two N’s, and a $1,200 pair of C’s…

C O N _ E S S I O N S / O _
A / S _ O _ A _ O _ I C

…she solves “CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC” for $8,200 cash & SS, which is from Brad’s Deals.

DUDS: T (Jared), R (Kristi)


Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Kristi’s off and running w/ a $600 T, three E’s, a $500 S, a $700 R, but then A for awful. But she quickly gets her turn after the other players LaT out back-to-back. Next on her list are two I’s, two $650 N’s, the last vowel of two O’s, but then L for loss while on the MW near LaT. Stephanie then SPINGLES for a J while on the WC

N O  S E
J O _
I N T E R _ I E _

…a NOSE JOB INTERVIEW seems complicated, but she’s correct for the house minimum.

DUDS (both by Kristi): A & L
LaTs: 2 (Kristi’s opponents)

Jared: $3K/Kristi: ZIP/Stephanie: $9,200 cash & SS


PP/Express Round: EVENT

An $1,800 N trio gets her going, followed by two A’s, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to lose $1,550 and the WC. Second, Jared uncovers a $1K pair of T’s, six E’s, but then S for sorry while on the Furn. of America gift tag. After Kristi LaTs out, Stephanie plucks two R’s and GOES ABOARD the EXPRESS.

Next Choices: L…I…C…P...D for dud (she loses $4,750)

Jared then comes up w/ a $600 F, an X for that MDW, and a $600 G…

_ N F _ R _ E T T A B L E

…he’s won $1,950 plus AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE on the caravan.com PANAMA TOUR worth $6K.

SOLE LaT: Kristi
BANKRUPTS: 2 (both by Stephanie)

Jared: $10,950 cash & tour MDW/Kristi: ZILCH/Stephanie: $9,200 cash & SS


$3K Tossup: PHRASE

_ _ ‘ V _ / _ _ M _
F U _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ E

WE’VE COME FULL CIRCLE and Jared‘s close to $14K.

Round 4: THING

All Jared here — he picks a $700 S, two E’s, a $700 R, three A’s and O’s, a $600 N, and a $500 L…

_ A S _ _ O N A _ L E
_ O O _ _ E A R

…he can buy some FASHIONABLE FOOTWEAR w/ another $1,750, bringing him up to $15,700 cash & trip.


Speed-Up: FUN & GAMES

This isn’t good news for Jared — we have our first $6K Final Spin of the season! After Kristi questionably calls the G…

R _ _ _ – _ L _ M _ _ N G
_ _ L L

…she gets over a ROCK-CLIMBING WALL for $12K; the C’s would’ve given her the win.

INSTA-DUDS: S (Kristi), T (Stephanie)

Jared: $15,700 cash & tour MDW/Kristi: $12K/Stephanie: $9,200 cash & SS

GT: $36,900
BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding WC): $6,300


Holding Jared’s million dollar key are Laura as well as parents Bill & Colleen. He lands on the ***.

Category: PHRASE
This 16-letter answer begins like this…

_ _ _ L _ _ N _
_ _ _ R S E L _

PHGI pretty much gives him the first word…

_ P P L _ I N G
_ _ _ R S E L _

…Jared, I hope you’re APPLYING YOURSELF for the victory…he does! But has history of the first-ever male million dollar winner been made tonight?…























not even close it was under the G. But he does win this ’17 Ford Explorer XLT worth $40,140 for a final total of $55,840 cash & prizes.

      Honestly…I thought his name was James too. He reminds me of James Batey from 5/6/2016.
