WoF Recap: Halloween 2016


$1K Tossup: WAYD?

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ G
_ O _ / F _ _ _ L S

Before Emily plans on STUDYING FOR FINALS soon, let’s play the game with her and…

Emily Sweet: Loyola Marymount Sr. who’s also been a professional model for five yrs. originally from the Bay area

Austin Tuttle: UNF Sr. studying finance who’s also a baseball umpire from Fleming Island, FL

Bree Casas: CSLB Sr. studying Communications & restaurant server who’s planning to graduate next fall

$2K Tossup: RHYME TIME

R _ _ _ _ E
T O / L _ S E

Emily says she will REFUSE TO LOSE.

TRIP WEDGE: Grand Canyon National Park
Mon./Wed./Fri. Gift Tag: ticketmaster

Round 1: EVENT

Four $600 T’s get her started, followed by three E’s, but then the BANKRUPT near big money to lose $2,150. Second, Austin calls up a $600 R, a $650 S, A and U singles, and four $650 N’s. We have…

N E _ / S T U _ E N T
_ R _ E N T A T _ _ N

…he solves NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION for $3,350.



Mystery/Crossword Round: COLLEGE LIFE

The lone man gets going w/ an $1,800 R trio, three A’s, two I’s, but then D for dud. Second, Bree takes an $1,100 pair of T’s, a U, two O’s, a $900 N, and M for the 1/2 CAR near $600, and an E, but the same normal BANKRUPT spooks her to the tune of $1,750 and her plate. After Emily spins the other normal one, Austin picks a J and goes for what’s under the MW near LaT…that will cost him $1,300. Bree then scoops up $7K worth of two D’s and the crossword board looks like this…

/     /    /  (_)  /    /    / (D)
/      / (T)(U)(I)(T)(I)(O)(N):
/      /   /  (A)  /   /    /  (R):
(_)(R)(A)(D)(E)  /   /   (M)(A)(J)(O)(R)

Her order of DORM, MAJOR, TUITION, GRADE & QUAD is right for the money.

SOLE DUD: D (Austin)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (everybody)

Bree: $7K/Emily: $3,000/Austin: $3,350


PP/Express Round: PLACE

Bree first brings up two R’s for the same 1/2 CAR, two E’, four A’s, a $3,500 N, an an I, but the BANKRUPT near $650 has eradicated $3,750. Over to Emily w/ the picks of two $600 T’s, the other two vowels, three FP S’s, $900 F and H singles, and a $10,500 trio. At this point…

S _ E C T A C U _ A R
_ E A C H F R O N T

…in addition to another $14,200, she’s traveling to a SPECTACULAR BEACHFRONT OASIS at the Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa in JAMAICA worth $7,800.


Bree: $7K/Emily: $25K cash & trip/Austin: $3,350


$3K Tossup: THING

_ E L F I E
S _ _ C _

Emily captures another winning reaction w/ a SELFIE STICK.

Round 4: PHRASE

Next on her list are a $500 T, two E’s, two $900 R’s, the other four vowels, two $700 Y’s, but then the LaT. Austin then puts up a $650 M, two $500 S’s, and $650 C and G singles…

Y O U / C A U G _ T / M E
_ Y / S U R _ R I S E

YOU CAUGHT ME BY SURPRISE w/ that $2,950 solve, sir.



Speed-Up: ON THE MAP

We pay $1,700 per consonant. After the M is requested…

_ R _ N _ / R _ _ _ _ S
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ N

….Emily quickly pinpoints GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN for $3,400 extra.

DUDS (both by Bree): T & L

Bree: $7K/Emily: $31,400 cash & trip/Austin: $6,300

GT: $44,700
BANKRUPT TRASH (excl. plates): $8,950


$100K Bonus Round
Our first non-SUV of the season here is a Ford C-MAX. Emily lands on the ***.

Category: PHRASE
I know this already…

T _ _ _ N _
_ R _ _ N _

GYDI are all up there…

T _ Y I N G
_ R _ _ N D

…she might not be TOYING AROUND w/ us (she first said TRYING…), but she’ll be driving back to campus in the C-MAX Energi worth $34,335! Final Total: $65,735 cash & treats.
