WoF Recap: January 13, 2017 – SKUNK THREAT #3

EPISODE #6525: WHEEL & V8 SWEEPSTAKES

$1K Tossup: PHRASE

N O _ H _ _ _ / _ I K E
T _ E / O _ I _ I N _ L

Ashley knows that this show and V8 is NOTHING LIKE THE ORIGINAL. The players on this potentially unlucky day (Friday the 13th, you see)…

Ashley Klein: involved in insurance sales from Grand Rapids

Dorthula Tillery: works in the HR dept. for the nation’s largest title insurance co. from Lakeland, FL

Vito Madrid: computer tech & BINGO guy from Albuquerque

$2K Tossup: AROUND THE HOUSE

B R _ S S
_ O O _ K _ _ _ S

Dorthula blows it w/ BRASS BOOKENDS.

B R _ S S
D O O _ K _ _ B S

Vito gets BRASS DOORKNOBS.

Round 1: SHOW BIZ

A $500 R sends him on his way, but the sole dud vowel of E stops him just as quick. Second, Ashley calls up a $1,500 S trio, four A’s, and two H’s for the WC, but she then hits the MDW’s right side to lose $2,250 and that WC. Dorthula’s third in line w/ a $700 T, two I’s, a $1K M pair, and the other two vowels, after which come $700 C and L singles…

S M A S H – H I T

_ R O A _ _ A _
M U S I C A L

…and a $2,350 solve of SMASH-HIT BROADWAY MUSICAL.

SOLE DUD: E (Vito)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Ashley

 

Mystery Round: SAME NAME

Ashley first lights up twin N’s and goes for what’s under the MW near $650nothing but trouble. Dorthula secondly calls up a $550 D, three A’s, and two FP E’s, followed by a $1K pair of S’s, but then the sole dud vowel of O. Vito thirdly puts up a $1,200 pair of R’s, the other two vowels, three $550 C’s, a $1K M, a $900 G, but then T for terrible. After Ashley misses again w/ H,  Dorthula inserts the $650 L and $1K F to leave one letter unexposed…

C E R A M I C / A N D
F L _ I N G
S A U C E R S

…she solves CERAMIC AND FLYING SAUCERS for $2,700 and a new total of $5,050.

DUDS: O (Dorthula), T (Vito), H (Ashley)
HER SECOND BANKRUPT: Ashley

 

PP/Express Round: PLACES

Dorthula opens w/ two S’s while on EXPRESS and DECLINES. She follows w/ a T for the gift tag, the four non-U vowels in one sitting, a $550 N, an $800 L, but then H for hush. Vito next uncovers three $650 C’s, an M for the 1/2 CAR near $600, an $800 J…a $900 V…but then B for BIG DUD. Afterwards…

M A J E S T I C
V O L C A N I C / _ E A _ S

Ashley will be seeing the MAJESTIC VOLCANIC PEAKS on that caravan.com CENTRAL AMERICA TOUR.

DUDS: H (Dorthula), B (Vito)

Ashley: $7K cash & tour/Dorthula: $5,050/Vito: $2K

 

$3K Tossup: EVENT

C _ _ _ _ L
F _ I D _ Y

Vito knows that today’s CASUAL FRIDAY.

Speed-Up: THING

$1,650 per consonant in another ugly affair. After Vito questionably purchases the four E’s

_ _ _ D E M _ _
_ _ H _ E _ E M E N T

ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT leaves him $350 short of the victory — why did you NOT call the C’s, sir?!?!

DUDS: R (Vito), S (Vito), L (Ashley), K (Dorthula)

FINAL SCORES
Ashley: $7K cash & tour/Dorthula: $5,050/Vito: $6,650

GT: $18,700
BANKRUPT TRASH (WC not factored): $2,250

 

$100K Bonus Round
Unless Ashley can bail us out, I would NOT be surprised if we’ve been skunked. She lands on the E of AMERICA’S.

Category: PHRASE
This 12-letter answer starts as…

_ _ _ _ L _
_ _ _ T E _

CMHA only adds twin H’s on top…

H _ _ H L _
_ _ _ T E _

sure enough, we’ve been skunked for the second time this season. This not-so-HIGHLY GIFTED lady loses the Nissan JUKE, and she will go down as the lowest-winning champion in the MDW era.

LAST SWEEPSTAKES PUZZLE: LET’S GO TO THE FESTIVAL

With that, we’ve set a NEW SEASON-LOW WEEKLY TOTAL of $130,554. At least Heather did better winnigs-wise, or else we would’ve broken the weekly winning record low from Dec. 2006.

MY RATING: 1 (I NEVER done this before until NOW)

    If the writers wanted a shutout, they sure got their wish. 😥 This episode sure threw the week down the toilet.

    Once again another 2nd bonus round shout out of the year. This is not the way to win big in bonus round with 5 people losing. Next week, let’s make it better because we cannot have that to happen again! 😢😢😢😢😢😣😣😣😣😣😔😔😔😔😔😬😬😬😬😬
