RIBBON, BOW, WRAPPING & TAPE are the words for $10,750 cash & sprees (the larger one was from CreditCard.com); she now has $13,750 to her credit.
Mystery Round: RHYME TIME
The man at the end digs up 10 T’s while on the MW near $650 and automatically declines though he said he wanted to go for it at first (it would’ve been a push, either way). He follows w/ four I’s, seven E’s, three L’s and H’s at $650 apiece, two R’s for the WC but then the BANKRUPT near TD to throw away $14,400 and his WC — ouch. Mandi then puts up a $1K pair of N’s…
