WoF Recap: November 7, 2016

EPISODE #6476: VETERANS WEEK

$1K Tossup: PHRASE

S _ _ _ _ _
T _ E / _ _ _ _ P S

Though we do SUPPORT THE TROOPS, Ed is incorrect w/ that response. A lady named Stormy then solves SALUTE THE TROOPS. First vets this week…

Stormy Brandt: accounting service rep who was in the Army as an armament electrician from Randolph, KS

Ed Richards: retired DJ & Navy postal clerk from Hennessey, OK

Kevin Collins: supervisor & logistics mgmt. specialist for the federal gov’t & A.F. F-15 Aircraft Mechanic from Chesterfield, MI

$2K Tossup: OCCUPATION

_ _ T O _ _ _ I _ E
E N _ I _ _ _ _

Stormy solves AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEER to triple up.

$7,500 SS: sears
Mon./Wed./Fri. $$$ Gift Tag: Firehouse Subs

Round 1: PEOPLE

She starts us off w/ a $1,500 N trio, a $650 S, a $1,300 pair of D’s, seven E’s, and three A’s. But after a $650 T is the BANKRUPT near TD to lose $3,600. Second, Ed gets the WC w/ three H’s, but NOT the MDW w/ a C call. Kevin, however, gets that sparkly green wedge w/ two R’s, but misses w/ F. Stormy then puts up a $1,300 pair of M’s…

T H E / _ R A _ E
M E N / A N D / _ _ M E N
_ H _ / H A _ E
S E R _ E D

…she realizes she is among THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE SERVED.

DUDS: C (Ed), F (Kevin)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Stormy

 

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Both men strike out on the spot w/ R and T, respectively. Third in line, Stormy digs up three N’s for the 1/2 CAR near $600, an E, two I’s, and a G for the other 1/2 CAR. Next are a $500 W, the last vowel of O, an L for the sears wedge…but then M for MAJOR DUD. Ed then puts up a $500 D, the last vowel of A, and a $1,300 pair of C’s. The near-complete board…

C _ O W
L I N E
D A N C I N G

…he performs a little CHOW LINE DANCING for $1,550.

DUDS: R (Ed), T (Kevin), M (Stormy)

Ed: $1,550/Kevin: $0/Stormy: $4,300

 

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

Here goes Kevin w/ a $900 N, four E’s, three A’s, an S for the 1/2 CAR near $900, four $500 T’s, but then a baddie of O. Stormy then plugs in the obvious twin G’s for $1,200, and a $2,400 P trio…

G E T T _ N G
P A _ P E _ E _
A T / T _ E / S P A

…in addition to another $3,600, she’ll be GETTING PAMPERED AT THE SPA at the SuperClubs Breezes in THE BAHAMAS worth $6,900.

SOLE DUD: O (Kevin)

Ed: $1,550/Kevin: GOOSEEGG ALERT/Stormy: $14,800 cash & trip

 

$3K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

_ P _ _ _
_ O _ B L E R

Stormy eats up an APPLE COBBLER for the Tossup sweep.

Round 4: THING

Next on her list are a $600 N, two $500 G’s, but then L for loss and it’s S-U time…

_ _ G _ _ _ N G
_ _ _ _ _ _

…w/ a $1,550 FS. Ed next fills in the R, but is way off w/ RAGING RIVER. One S and two T’s later…

_ _ G _ T _ N G
S _ _ R _ T

Stormy proves she has the FIGHTING SPIRIT for another $4,700.

SOLE DUD (before FS): L (Stormy)
SOLE DQ: Ed’s blown solve

FINAL SCORES
Ed: $1,550/Kevin: $1K GOOSEEGG/Stormy: $22,500 cash & trip

GT: $25,050
BANKRUPT TRASH: $3,600

 

$100K Bonus Round
It was won on the Friday episode of “Shopping Spree”, and it’s back again — the ’17 Ford Explorer XLT. Stormy lands on the N of WIN.

Category: THING
Two letters in the bottom to start…

_ / _ _ _
_ _ _ T _ R

DHMA only gives her the obvious vowel…

A / _ _ _
_ A _ T _ R

No extra consonants for her on the board was A BIG FACTOR in this $34K loss.

MY RATING: 6

I’ll see you Wednesday night after the election.

    Sorry Andy, but Wheel did NOT air in my area last night due to the election. I think the episodes will be pushed back a day.
