WoF Recap: December 1, 2016

I goofed saying last night’s $100K team loss was the first since the S29 premiere week — it was since the WORLDWIDE HIT trainwreck in late S30. Furthermore, I had to delete you-know-who’s “technical win” crap this morning. GET LOST, MICHAEL TAYLOR!

Anyway, let’s try to make a nice recovery to start this final month of 2016.



B _ _ Y
B _ T T _ _ S

Heath & Adam don’t need some BABY BOTTLES. First six players this month…

Heath & Adam Chavis (son/dad): Heath’s from Gaithersburg, MD while Adam’s a CPA from Reisterstown, MD

Kathie & Carrie Kiker (mom/daughter): these ladies from Mission Viejo have a tradition where they play cards & games on Christmas Eve and whoever wins gets to pick any present under their Christmas tree; they also own a balloon business where they donate balloon decorations to various places for ALS research

Shari & Amber Marshall (sisters): ech are engaged and are from Port St. Lucie, FL

$2K Tossup: PERSON

P _ _ _ _ _ R

Heath & Adam don’t need a DANCE PARTNER, and they’ve tripled up.

Crossword Round: DOG _____

The Chavises get going w/ three R’s for $2,700, an A, but then T for trouble. Second, the Kikers call up a $500 D, buy an I and four E’s, and lose their turn w/ the BANKRUPT near TD. Third, the Marshalls put up a $1,400 pair of B’s, a $700 K, the last vowel of O, but then N for no. The Chavises follow w/ an S for the WC, but the same BANKRUPT snatches $2,950 and the WC. Afterwards…

(B)(R)(E)(E)(D) /   /   /   (B)
(O)  /   /   /    /   /   /  /    (A)
(_)  /   /   /     /    /    /  /   (K)

…the Kikers solve BREED, WHISPERER, BOWL and BARK to get on the board.

DUDS: T (men), N (Shari & Amber)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (men, Kikers)

Mystery Round: PHRASE

The Kikers light up a T and obviously go for what’s under the MW near $650…$$$. But the H stops them just as quick. Second, the Marshalls insta-BANKRUPT next to $650. Third, the men light up four R’s for $2,200, buy four E’s and an O, but run into the MDW’s right side to fork over $1,700 (Heath tried to blow on it — LOL). The Kikers unfortunately get the exact same fate to give up that $10K MW. After the Marshalls miss w/ N, the Chavis boys uncover a $600 S, four A’s, an X for the MDW, I, a $650 D, U, three $500 M’s, and four $3,500 L’s. We have…

L A R _ E / O R
E X T R A / L A R _ E

SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE OR EXTRA LARGE is correct for $16,300.

DUDS: H (Kikers), N (Marshalls)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (everybody)

Kikers: $2K/Marshalls: $0/Chavises: $19,300 MDW

PP/Express Round: THING

Back-to-back duds of R and S start this round off. Third in line, the Kiker ladies put up a $600 T, A, a $600 N, three I’s, a FP E, and a $1,300 pair of K’s. We have..

_ E _ _ _ _
_ _ _ K A / _ _ T
_ I K I N I

…they quickly solve “YELLOW POLKA-DOT BIKINI” (from a 60’s song by Brian Hyland) for $2K and a trip to The Buccaneer in ST. CROIX worth $17,800.

INSTA-DUDS: R (Marshalls) & S (Chavises)

Kikers: $21,800 cash & St. Croix/Marshalls: BAD LUCK/Chavises: $19,300 MDW

$3K Tossup: SONG TITLE

_ Y
_ _ _ _ _ A T _ _ N

Carrie just makes it in time w/ “(JUST) MY IMAGINATION” (by the Temptations).

Speed-Up: THING

$1,600 per consonant this time. Two L’s are put up late in the round by the Chavises, but they blow it w/ BRILLIANT TIMING. Then again, they still would’ve been $700 short of going to the MDBR (and Heath mouthed the F-word after the buzzer). The Kiker ladies spot that X…

_ X _ _ L L _ N T

…they came through w/ EXCELLENT TIMING for another $8K.

DUDS: S (Marshalls), R (Chavises), H (Kikers)
SOLE DQ: Chavises’ blown solve

Kikers: $32,800 cash & St. Croix/Marshalls: $2K LUMP OF COAL/Chavises: $19,300

GT: $54,100
BANKRUPT TRASH (WC not included): $14,650

Marshalls’ SPIN ID: PF1283771 (Paul F.)
Chavises’ SPIN ID: TS4840979 (Traci S.)


$100K Bonus Round
Will the *** mean something real good for the Kikers?

Category: PHRASE
Here’s 1/3 of the answer…

_ _ E N
_ _ _ L _

DMPO should do it…

D _ _ L _

My site’s technically OPEN DAILY, and you’re not gonna believe what they have won…














































 …AFTER IT WAS LOST LAST NIGHT, THE $100,000 IS  FINALLY WON FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS SEASON (the graphics for grand prize wins are now gold)!!!!!!! They’re now your new S34 leaders w/ $132,800 cash & trip!!! If only the Chavises were there instead…

FINAL SPIN ID: MC6997245 (Michaelene C.)

(END NOTES: That’s the third time in history the big one’s been hit back-to-back in a taping day. It’s also the third time that somebody got the $100K after beating somebody else who had that MDW.)

    We went from a $100K loss to a $100K win in 24 hours. And because of it, we now set a new season high so far of over $346K.

    My rating: 10

    I Can’t Believe It Winning $100,000 Is An Icing On The Cake And The Confetti Explosion Was So So Oh My Gosh

    So I ended up missing this episode thanks to Thursday Night Football coverage on NBC (I get Wheel on my NBC affiliate, and NBC split with CBS for Thursday Night Football), but at least you saw what has to be the best episode yet this season. Hopefully there’ll be more $100K wins or even a $1M win to come on episodes that won’t get preempted anywhere (unless something comes up at the last minute). Also, I didn’t realize you know who was still around. Is that racist troll still around also?


  6. colin roley December 2, 2016 / 7:02 pm

    That’s Okay Jimmy Ruska There Are Many Episodes That Will Never Get Preempted Anywhere You Know I Just Can’t Have That


    • Jimmy Ruska December 3, 2016 / 7:25 am

      They should have swapped the episodes for Wednesday and Thursday like they did when Sarah Manchester won the $1M 2 years ago (Her episode was originally scheduled for that Thursday, but that got moved to Wednesday due to Thursday Night Football preempting CBS viewers). They know that NBC affiliates nationwide were gonna get preempted, so they should have rearranged the scheduling so that NBC viewers wouldn’t get a huge preempted.

    It’s a great $100K comeback from loss to win. But I need more $100K wins.

    My rating: 10


  8. colin roley December 3, 2016 / 3:01 pm

    Yes They Do Need More $100K Wins But I Hope The Have A $100K Win Again
