With a big lead already, Jim gets going w/ three $500 R’s, two E’s, three A’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose the remaining grand. Second, Ora can’t make a decision on the MW near LaT w/ a dud of T. Third, Nicole uncovers a $700 S, an I, but then N for no while on the 1/2 CAR near $900. Jim then flips the other MW over after saying three D’s…$$$

But that same BANKRUPT nails her right from the get-go. Second for big Jim are a  $2,700 N trio, a $1,400 T pair, two E’s and O, a $1,200 pair of H’s, but that same pesky BANKRUPT cleans him out the tune of $4,800. After Ora LaTs out, Nicole tries again w/ a $500 S, four I’s, $500 L and F singles, a $5K G, but that same normal one rips up $6,250. Jim then puts up a $650 R and the last vowel of A…

    Hey, at least the car is likely worth less than what Jim won. He did GREAT.

    My rating: 8

    Yeah No Kidding And If Jim Would’ve Won The Ford Fiesta & The Mini Cooper It Would’ve Been Awfully Nice To For Jim Win 2 Cars Besides Two Trips On Wheel of Fortune
