TRIP WEDGE: WYNDHAM Midtown 45 in NYC worth $7K

Round 1: SHOW BIZ

She leads the way w/ a $1K pair of T’s, two E’s and A’s, but then the BANKRUPT near big bucks. Second, Bobbie calls up an $1,100 pair of R’s, buys three O’s, but then duds out w/ S. The same goes for Terrell w/ an H call. Annie tries again w/ a $500 N, two I’s to finish off the vowels, three M’s for that WC, and two $700 Y’s.

M Y / _ A _ O R I T E
R O M A N T I _

I don’t have MY FAVORITE ROMANTIC COMEDY, but she’s solves for $3,150 and $6,150 overall.

DUDS: S (Bobbie), H (Terrell)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Annie

Crossword/Mystery Round: WEATHER ALERT!

Bobbie’s up first w/ an $1,100 pair of T’s, but then the sole dud vowel of O. Second in Terrell’s direction are a $600 R, two A’s, but then S for sorry. Third, Annie calls up three N’s for the 1/2 CAR near $900, buys the other two good vowels, and gets the other 1/2 CAR w/ D.  We have…

(T)(_)(U)(N)(D)(E)(R)
/  (A)   /   /    /     / (A)
(_)(I)(_)(_)(T)(N)(I)(N)(_)
/  (_)  /   /    /    /  (N)

…she makes it through THUNDER, LIGHTNING, HAIL & RAIN for $16,240 in cash & Ford Fiesta!

DUDS: O (Bobbie), S (Terrell)

Annie: $22,390 cash & prizes WC/Others: $0 each

 

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Terrell kicks off w/ a $2,700 T trio, three O’s, but then a baddie of G. Second for Annie are two R’s for the NOVICA gift tag, four E’s, A, two $500 N’s, two $550 H’s, and the last vowel of three I’s, but the same BANKRUPT nails her for $3,350 cash & GT plus her WC…

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

There’s NO OTHER PLACE LIKE IT IN THE WORLD and Bobbie’s going to the Dolce Hotel and Resort Sitges in BARCELONA worth $9,500.

Terrell spots DOROTHY & TOTO to finally score.

Speed-Up: WAYD?

$1,600 per consonant here. Two C’s are said by Annie late in this round, but she flubs w/ CONDUCTING AN TOURNAMENT; that makes no grammatical sense at all. She gets another shot after buying three E’s…
