Crossword Round: CHRISTMAS _______

She insta-BANKRUPTs next to $650. Second, Morgan calls up a $700 N, five A’s, a FP I, two $700 T’s, and three FP E’s to clean out the vowels. Those are followed by a $1,200 pair of V’s, a $650 C, a $600 R, a FP D, a $700 Y…but then a critical dud of L to leave $5,250 on the table. Hoisea then FPs an S and picks up the larger Sears prize w/ W to complete the board…

/     /   (E)  / (V)(A)(C)(A)(T)(I)(O)(N)
/     /   (V) /    /    /   (A)
(S)(W)(E)(A)(T)(E)(R)

…and win his first $8,500 cash & SS.

Mystery Round: PERSON

Morgan’s chance to redeem herself begins w/ a $650 T, three E’s, a $600 M, three I’s, and an A, followed by a $650 N, the last vowel of O, but then another crucial dud of R while on the WC. Hoisea follows w/ a TD S, an H for the gift tag, a $600 W, and a $650 L before we see…

A / L E _ E N _
I N / H I S
O W N / T I M E

…he solves A LEGEND IN HIS OWN TIME for another $6,250 in cash & sears, bringing him up to $14,750.

SOLE DUD: R (Morgan)

 

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

Hoisea’s off to a nice $10,500 start w/ three T’s, then he buys three E’s and two A’s, plugs in two $650 H’s and a $500 N, but LaTs out. Sue’s second in line w/ a $700 G, two $500 C’s, the remainder of the vowel shop, a $1K pair of S’s, two $700 D’s, an L for the WC, but then the same BANKRUPT to throw away $3,850 and her WC…

_ A T C H I N G
C L O U D S / D _ I _ T
O _ E _ / T H E / S E A

…and Morgan will be WATCHING CLOUDS DRIFT OVER THE SEA while at the Renaissance ST. CROIX Carambola Beach Resort & Spa.

SOLE LaT: Hoisea
SOLE BANKRUPT: Sue

$100K Bonus Round
We’ve landed on the N in SPIN last night…and Hoisea actually hits the S in the same word.

Category: THING
This very big one starts like this…

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

CDMI gives him…

_ I _ _ R _ _ _ I C _ L
I N _ _ R M _ T I _ N

…he doesn’t realize he gave his BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION at the start of this episode, so he loses $45K.

FINAL SPIN ID: MF4941456 (Maryann F.)
