Starting Jill off are a $3,500 T, two E’s, A, and three O’s to quickly clean out the vowels, followed by an $1,800 N pair, but then the other normal BANKRUPT to clean her out of $4,550.

Jill tries again w/ a $600 G, a $550 D, an L for the 1/2 CAR near $650, but the same MDW BANKRUPT strikes again to the tune of $1,650 and her plate. Aaron follows suit w/ a $700 H, but then R for roadblock. After Chloe wastes another spin w/ the other MDW BANKRUPT, Jill puts up a P for the Bedandbreakfast.com gift tag, and a $650 M to complete the board…
