Carmen blows it w/ RISE & EXERCIZE, whereas Emily is able to RISE & ENERGIZE.

$2K Tossup: SONG LYRICS

D _ _ _ M
B A B _ / _ R _ A M

Carmen solves “DREAM BABY DREAM” (first done by the electro-punk group Suicide and later covered by Springsteen in ’14)

Round 1: THINGS

She kicks off w/ a $1,400 T pair, two E’s, a $1K pair of N’s, three A’s, four O’s, but then the MDW’s left side to lose $1,650. Second, Paul calls up a $600 D, buys the last vowel of I, but gets the BANKRUPT near $650 to give back $350. Third, Emily says F for flunk. Carmen tries again w/ a $600 C, a $650 P, but the same MDW BANKRUPT to hand over $1,250 that time. Paul next gets the same normal BANKRUPT he got before. Emily follows w/ a $1,400 pair of R’s, but then a baddie of Y. After Carmen hits the other normal BANKRUPT, Paul uncovers a TD M…

C O O P E R A T I O N
A N D / T E A M _ O R _

…w/ a little COOPERATION AND TEAMWORK, he solves and everybody’s quickly on the board.

DUDS (both by Emily): F & Y
BANKRUPTS: 5 (Carmen 3x; Paul 2x)

 

Crossword/Mystery Round: PARTY _____

Paul starts w/ a T for the WC, two I’s, but then R for roadblock. Emily secondly picks off an N and obviously goes for what’s under the MW near LaTBAD NEWS, I’m afriad. After Carmen says D for dud, Paul puts up a $600 H, two $1K S’s, two A’s, but then C for crud while on the gift tag. Emily BANKRUPTs again w/ the one near $3,500, allowing Carmen to put up a $1K M, E, but then the sole bad vowel of O. Paul then lights up a $1,200 L and a couple of U’s before hitting the same normal BANKRUPT he got twice before to forfeit $3,550 and his WC. Emily then takes the $1,400 P pair before hitting the LaT…

/     /    /     /   /    /    /  (H)

…and Carmen completes the board w/ BUS for the house minimum.

DUDS: R (Paul), D (Carmen), C (Paul), O (Carmen)
SOLE LaT: Emily
BANKRUPTS: 3 (Emily 2x, Paul; Paul now has three)

 

PP/Express Round: PLACE

Emily’s starters are four FP A’s, three $600 T’s, E, three I’s, and three FP O’s to wipe out thew vowel shop. She then boards the EXPRESS after calling four N’s.

Bank at Stake: $5,300
Next Choices: three R’s…P…L…BLANK OUT (there goes $10,300)

After Carmen flunks out w/ Z…

_ O N A

Paul will get to KONA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT and ride off to the Hilton Waikoloa Village in HAWAII worth $7,014.

SOLE NON-BANKRUPT DUD: Z (Carmen)

Carmen: $3K/Paul: $9,514 cash & trip/Emily: $1K

 

$3K Tossup: AROUND THE HOUSE

_ U T D O _ R
_ _ _ / G _ _ L L

Emily blows it w/ OUTDOOR AND GRILL; Carmen says a more sensible but incorrect answer of OUTDOOR BBQ GRILL.

_ U T D O O R
_ A S / G _ I L L

Paul finally gets OUTDOOR GAS GRILL.

Speed-Up: PHRASE

$1,700 per consonant in this ugly affair. After the backloading K appears…

_ T ‘ S / _ _ S _ _ _
T H _ N / _ _ _ / T H _ N K

Carmen says “IT’S EASIER THAN YOU THINK” for $6,800. Had Paul missed that last Tossup, she would’ve gone to the BR.

GT: $23,314

    So far we only got $111,854. We desperately need a BR win tonight to avoid a Shutout and potentially avoid the worst weekly total this season or it will not only be a Bonus Round Shutout, it will also be its worst week ever.
