WoF Recap: January 26, 2017



C U _ A
& / _ R U _ A

Jimmy locates CUBA & ARUBA. Meeting the man at the end first…

Jimmy Weinstein: Beverly Hills firefighter from Canyon Country, CA

Regina Childen: global food ambassador who does REVERSE panhandling from Denver

Katie Belotti: works in campus recruiting for an accounting firm from Charlotte, NC

$2K Tossup: IN THE KITCHEN (but also EVENT)

S _ G _ R
B _ _ L

Jimmy triples up w/ the SUGAR BOWL.

collette WEDGE: Peru worth $10,598

Round 1: WAYD?

He’s off to a $5K start w/ two N’s, then he calls up two I’s, two $900 G’s, two O’s, but then the sole dud vowel of A for awful. Regina also strikes out w/ S. Third in line, Katie puts up a $1,200 T pair, buys two E’s, but hits the MDW’s left side to lose $950. Next for Jimmy are the U, a $1,200 H pair, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to forfeit $7K. After Regina gets the exact same fate as the man, Katie puts up the $1,600 R pair…

_ R I G H T E N I N G / U _
T H E / R O O M

…she’s BRIGHTENING UP THE ROOM to get on the board.

DUDS: A (Jimmy), S (Regina)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (everybody)


Crossword/Mystery Round: IT’S ALL GREEK TO ME

Regina gets going w/ a $1,400 T pair, four E’s, two I’s, but the other MDW BANKRUPT to give back the $900 remainder. Second, Katie’s bitten by the same normal BANKRUPT she got before. Third, Jimmy uncovers two R’s and obviously gambles for the MW near LaT$$$. But the LaT stops him just as quick. Regina tries again w/ two N’s for the collette wedge, the other three vowels, a $3,500 M, a $650 S, a $550 L, a $700 D, but then the MDW’s right side to flush away $16,248 cash & trip. After Katie picks up the Ricardo trip w/ a Z and BANKRUPTs near $650, Jimmy tries to capitalize…

/   (_)   /   /    /    /    /    /    /     /  (Z)
/    (T)  /    /    /   /    /     /    /    /  (U)
/   (A) /    /     /  (O)(L)(I)(_)(E)(S)

…he thinks FETA (as in the Greek cheese) and OLIVES will do it…NO! Darn. Regina then puts up the $500 B…

/   (B)   /   /    /    /    /    /    /     /  (Z)
/    (T)  /     /    /   /    /     /    /    /  (U)
/   (A) /    /     /  (O)(L)(I)(_)(E)(S)

BETA & OLIVES wins her another $500.

SOLE LaT: Jimmy
SOLE DQ: Jimmy’s unfortunate missolve
BANKRUPTS: 4 (two by each lady)


PP/Express Round: PLACE

Katie opens w/ a $600 T, three E’s, a $600 R, three I’s, but then the same pesky normal BANKRUPT to give back $700. Jimmy’s second in line w/ three $650 S’s, a $600 H, an O, three A’s to clean out the vowels, three N’s for the 1/2 CAR near $600, a $650 F, but he and Regina LaT out back-to-back. Katie then puts up a $3,500 L, a $1K D pair, and a $650 W…

T H E / W I L D E R N E S S
O F / S _ A N D I N A _ I A

…in addition to another $5,150, she’ll see THE WILDERNESS OF SCANDINAVIA on her $12,798 trip to said place.

LaTs: 2 (Jimmy & Regina)

Regina: $1K/Katie: $19,548 cash & trip/Jimmy: $3K

    Oh boy…thanks to Katie choosing NEW, we face the skunk tomorrow. This whole episode was bizarre.

    My rating: 6

    Awful episode. 6th BR loss and a Big $27K Bankrupt Trash lowers my rating.

    My rating: 4 (We Need a BR Win tomorrow or it will be the second BR wipeout in 3 week)

      Rating: 5. Feta Really Jimmy?


      • Aaae99 January 27, 2017 / 7:04 am

        Feta was a good guess, ANT.


      • jpgenius January 27, 2017 / 11:38 am

        Yeah, I would’ve said FETA too. Poor Jimmy.
