I’M AN OPTIMIST just like Heather.

Round 1: WAYD?

Her starters are a $650 N, five I’s, the obvious $650 G, but then A for awful. Second, Christina repeats the N while on the V8 GT. Third, John’s lit up a $500 T, E and O singles to wipe out the vowels, a $1,300 L pair, but then D for dud. Heather then puts up a $1,300 Y pair, a $1,200 M pair, and a $650 F…

Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

Christina wastes a spin w/ the BANKRUPT near $650. Second, John picks up the $7,500 V8 bonus w/ two T’s, buys three A’s, and uncovers the SL bonus of six $900 S’s. But here comes the other normal BANKRUPT to take away $14,650. Heather follows that unfortunate spin w/ a $1,200 R pair, E, but then N for no. Next for Christina are a $700 D, but then the LaT. John then puts up a $900 L, and the last consonant of P while on the 1/2 CAR near $900…

S T A R T E R S
S _ _ P S / &
S A L A D S

…he solves STARTERS, SOUPS & SALADS for $1,400.

SOLE DUD: N (Heather)
SOLE LaT: Christina
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Christina, John)

Heather: $5,950/Christina: $1K/John: $1,400 1/2 CAR

 

PP/Express Round: LIVING THINGS

John’s up first w/ a $650 S, but the A lets somebody down again. Heather secondly takes two R’s for the MDW, four $700 T’s, three E’s, two I’s and two U’s to clean out the vowels before boarding the EXPRESS after calling up a B.

Current Bank: $3,050 and MDW
Next Choices: two L’s…two F’s…N and G

    Pretty enthusiastic episode thanks to Heather. Good thing she didn’t miss out on you-know-what in the BR.

    My rating: 7

    Also, did you notice Heather only called vowels during the Final Spin? Was she trying to pull off what Nura did?

      Well, at least she wasn’t calling the dumb consonants of Q, Z, etc. I was listening to the Sunny radio morning show and Nura’s name was mentioned on the air!
