Deb hears the sound of FRIENDLY CAROLERS. Last three Secret Santas go by these names…

Jada rightly says “REPEAT AFTER ME”.

Round 1: WAYD?

She gets the sears gift tag right away w/ two T’s, buys five A’s, calls up a $500 R, but LaTs out. Second, Nate takes a $1,500 N trio, buys three I’s and two E’s, and puts up the obvious twin $500 G’s, after which he says a $900 D, two C’s for that WC, and the last vowel of U. We have…

G E T T I N G / A

A N D / _ A C I A _

…he might be GETTING A MANICURE AND FACIAL soon after solving for $3,650.

SOLE LaT: Jada

 

Mystery Round: SAME NAME

It’s all Nate — he picks a $700 N, A, three E’s, a $600 D, a $650 S, I, a $650 R, a $600 T, the last vowel of O, a $550 L, three $550 C’s, and two K’s for the 1/2 CAR near $600.

_ O C K E _ / A N D
C E L E R _
S T I C K

…he shoots, he scores a PR and another $5,400 w/ HOCKEY AND CELERY STICK.

Deb: $1K/Jada: $2K/Nate: $10,050

 

PP/Express Round: EVENT

Deb leads off w/ a $500 T, four FP A’s, a $3,500 R, a $600 C, E, and two O’s, followed by a $1K pair of B’s, the other two vowels, and three $650 S’s. We have…

A / _ A B U _ O U S
S A I _ B O A T
C R U I S E

…she may be taking A FABULOUS SAILBOAT CRUISE while at the Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort in ARUBA worth $6,090.

$3K Tossup: AROUND THE HOUSE

M _ C H A _ _ C _ L
P E _ C I _

Nate gets closer to Deb via a MECHANICAL PENCIL.

Speed-Up: THINGS

Ho ho ho — $6K per consonant to wrap up this sweepstakes! Jada lights up the triple N’s midway but she’s way off w/ NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS. Nate picks off that last consonant of G…

N A T _ R A L
_ N G R _ D _ _ N T S

…these NATURAL INGREDIENTS are worth $18K and a ticket to Bonusland.
