_ _ C T _ R _ _ ‘ S

…here’s $6,600 worth of VICTORIA’S SECRET SERVICE.

_ A K I N G / _ _
T O / T H E / S O _ N _

$3K Tossup: FUN & GAMES

S P _ _ E

Arnie nails the Tossups w/ “SPACE INVADERS”.

Round 4: SHOW BIZ

But he wastes a spin w/ the BANKRUPT near TD. Second for Jahnielle are a $600 T, E, three A’s, but then S for sorry. After Teri LaTs out, Arnie picks off a $650 R, but the same BANKRUPT gets him again. Jahnielle then digs up a $10K M pair, and a $1,300 pair of D’s…

D A _ T _ M E

…one such example is CBS’ “Bold & The Beautiful”, as she solves DAYTIME DRAMA for $11,400.

This fairly big one starts as…

_ _ R _ E _ _ S
_ _ N E _ _ R _

PMCO adds just the vowel…

_ O R _ E O _ S
_ _ N E _ _ R _

…but she’s won the $34K from the GORGEOUS VINEYARD and leaves w/ $54,850 cash & trip.
