EPISODE #6553: GREAT AMERICAN CITIES (SAN DIEGO)

$1K Tossup: PLACE

A M E _ _ C _ ‘ S
_ _ N _ S T / _ I _ Y

In this show’s opinion, they say San Diego is AMERICA’S FINEST CITY; Alicia has the answer will be interviewed first…

Alicia Crawford: Naval Surface Warfare Officer from S.D. (orig. from Dallas)

BJ Lawrence: SeaWorld performer for 15 yrs. from S.D.

Brandy Holmes: restaurant server who recently came back from Belize from Temeculah (orig. from Boone, IA)

$2K Tossup: AROUND THE HOUSE

C _ _ _ E _ – _ _ _ L E
_ O O K

Alicia has a brain fart this time.

C _ _ _ E E – _ _ _ L E
B O O K

So does Brandy.

C _ _ _ E E – _ _ B L E
B O O K

BJ grabs a COFFEE-TABLE BOOK.

Round 1: THING

He can’t capitalize on TD w/ S for sorry. Second, Brandy calls up a $650 N, three T’s to x4 her starting amount, an O, three $600 R’s, two E’s and A’s, and three C’s to add $1,500…

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

…she solves VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURE for $4,900.

INSTA-DUD: S (BJ)

 

Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

Brandy gets going w/ a $600 S, three R’s for the SS wedge, five E’s, an I, and the SL Bonus of four $650 C’s before she puts up two H’s and obviously declines for what’s under the MW near LaT (that’s probably the BANKRUPT one). Here’s the board…

C H _ C _ _ _ _ E –
C _ _ E R E _
C H E R R I E S

…she eats some CHOCOLATE-COVERED CHERRIES for another $13,200 in cash & spree (this one from BedandBreakfast.com).

PR

Brandy: $18,100 cash & SS/Alicia: $1K/BJ: $2K

 

Before the next round, Pat says that all of this week’s contestants will receive free tickets to the S.D. Zoo.

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

Alicia plays catch-up here w/ five N’s for $3,500, three I’s, a FP E, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to lose $3,250. Second, BJ gets the exact same fate. Third, Brandy rides the EXPRESS after selecting the obvious G.

Next Choices: two O’s…CRASH w/ S ($750 loss)

Alicia tries again w/ a $650 T, but then F for flunk. BJ follows w/ a C for the 1/2 CAR near $900, two A’s, $500 L and B singles, a $1K Y pair, a U, and $500 N and P singles (he spun that same $500 spot next to the orange $900 all in this round). We have…

U N _ I N _ I N G / O N
M Y / P _ I _ A T E
B A L C O N Y

…he’s not gonna be UNWINDING ON MY PRIVATE BALCONY, but he’s won $3K and will stay at the ARUBA Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino worth $6,300.

SOLE NON-BANKRUPT DUD: F (Alicia)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (everybody)

Brandy: $18,100 cash & SS/Alicia: $1K/BJ: $11,300 cash & Aruba

 

$3K Tossup: OCCUPATION

C _ R T I _ _ E D
_ U T _ _ _ _ _ _ I _ T

Brandy cracks the $21K mark w/ CERTIFIED NUTRITIONIST.

Speed-Up: PHRASE

$1,600’s the FS value. After an M pops up…

_ T / _ _ _ / M _ _ _ S
S _ N S _ / N _ W

IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW — BJ makes the $3,200 solve and finishes is a nice second.

SOLE AIRED DUD: C (Brandy)

FINAL SCORES
Brandy: $21,100 cash & SS/Alicia: $1K/BJ: $14,500 cash & Aruba

GT: $36,600
BANKRUPT TRASH: $4K

 

$100K Bonus Round
Brandy lands on the I of WIN.

Category: THINGS
She needs some help for the top…

_ _ _ _
_ _ N T S

PMHO gives her…

_ O _ _
P _ N T S

COZY PANTS is incorrect (that was my first thought, too), but YOGA PANTS is right for $40K and a final total of $61,100!

$5K SPIN ID: KC7343024

MY RATING: 8
