WoF Recap: January 19, 2017


$1K Tossup: ON THE MAP

V E _ _ C _
B _ _ _ _ _ _ _ D

Emily has traveled down VENICE BOULEVARD. And she’s the only female from this panel…

Emily Turman: dir. of operations for a wealth mgmt. firm from Richmond, VA

Kevin Kresch: attorney & Detroit sports fan w/ ten nieces & nephews from Ferndale, MI

Miguel Davis: HS English teacher from Chicago

$2K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

C _ _ _ _ _ N
_ _ D / _ A F _ E S

I’ve never had CHICKEN AND WAFFLES together, but Miguel solves for control.

CC TRIP: The Bahia Resort Hotel in San Diego

Round 1: FUN & GAMES

He opens w/ a T and two R’s at $650 apiece, A and O vowel singles, two E’s, but then the A recall. Second, Emily calls up three N’s for the WC, the other two vowels, and two C’s for that MDW. We have…

C R U I S I N _ / I N
A / C O N _ E R T I _ _ E

…I kinda wish someone would be CRUISING IN A CONVERTIBLE this week, but she has solved to tie Miguel for the early lead.

SOLE DQ: Miguel’s A repeat


Crossword/Mystery Round: ONE NAME ONLY

All of the words here are one-named female musical artists.

Here goes Emily with the pickings of an R for the Birk Sun gift tag, three $600 N’s, three A’s, and four E’s, after which come a $1,600 H pair, $3,500 D and L singles (latter courtesy of her WC), and a $700 C before we see…

/    /    /     /    / (H)
/ (A)(D)(E)(L)(E)
/   /    /     /   /  (R)(_)(H)(A)(N)(N)(A)

BEYONCE, CHER, ADELE & RHIANNA win her $12,100 cash & backpacks.


Miguel: $2K/Emily: $14,100 cash & backpacks MDW/Kevin: $0



Now that we finally get to hear from Kevin, he first spins up a $700 N, but then the BANKRUPT near $650. Miguel secondly gets the exact same fate. Third, Emily puts up a D for the 1/2 CAR near $900, four A’s, but no more w/ T. Kevin tries again w/ two S’s to take the Fiesta out of play, but then a worthless E. Miguel follows w/ a $600 R, but then L for loss. After Emily spins up the other normal BANKRUPT to lose the other 1/2 of her $500 and her extras…

_ A _ _ A R S
A N D / _ _ _ A S

Kevin will see the JAGUARS AND PUMAS in COSTA RICA at the Lapaz Waterfall Gardens worth $6,100.

DUDS: T (Emily), E (Kevin), L (Miguel)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (whole panel)

Miguel: $2K/Emily: $14,100 cash & backpacks/Kevin: $6,850 cash & C.R.



J _ _ _ I _ E R
_ A W _ _ N _ _

Kevin’s nearing the five-figure mark w/ “Hunger Games” star JENNIFER LAWRENCE.

Round 4: PHRASE

His first moves are a $500 N, but then the BANKRUPT near $650. Miguel secondly strikes out w/ S. Afterwards, it’s all Emily — three $900 T’s, two A’s and E’s, two $650 L’s, two I’s and O’s to finish off the vowels, and a $1K pair of R’s.

A / L I T T L E
_ R E A T _ I N _ / R O O _

Here’s A LITTLE (more) BREATHING ROOM — $4K extra.

SOLE DUD: S (Miguel)

Miguel: $2K/Emily: $18,100 cash & backpacks/Kevin: $9,850 cash & C.R.

Kevin comes up w/ a SECRET INGREDIENT worth $3,200.

SOLE DUD: P (Miguel)

Miguel: $2K/Emily: $18,100 cash & backpacks/Kevin: $13,050 cash & C.R.

GT: $33,150
BANKRUPT TRASH (not including extras): $1,450


$100K Bonus Round

Category: THING
I got it already…

_ _ _ _ N

She goes w/ the CHIP strategy…

H _ _ _ N

    Well, at least Emily didn’t take the super big one to the BR, by a $50K loss still sucks. Nice match between her and Kevin.

    My rating: 6

      I agree. Still going to break to $200K mark tomorrow regardless of the outcome.

      My rating: 6 due to 2 contestants over $13K and $18K respectively.

      I even solved the BR without the M
