Shannon solved SPECTATOR SPORT.

Round 1: WAYD?

He led off w/ a $1K pair of R’s, but the LaT got him and Nicolette. Third in line, Chris spun his way to two N’s for the sears wedge, a $700 G, three I’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose $8,950 cash & spree. Shannon tried again w/ four $500 T’s, three O’s, two $600 Y’s, an M for the Firehouse Subs gift tag, but then S for sorry. Nicolette next picked a $700 F, bought three A’s, but that same BANKRUPT shot her and Chris down, costing the woman $450. Afterwards…
