WoF Recap: March 3, 2017

Had Lexie & Alex chosen the G’s from last night, they would’ve been the new S34 champs. And they’re just the second teens to lose the big one — the first was two girls from a S26 episode on the first “America’s Game” week who failed to solve DAILY DIARY. Click HERE.


$1K T-U: WAYD?

_ U S _
_ _ N G _ N _ / _ U T

Tanya & Ian say they were “JUST HANGING OUT”. Final six teens this week…

Tanya Balandin & Ian Hughes (jrs.)

Anthony Khalil & Kevin Kiely: autistic 

Samara Johnson & Sasha Benson (freshmen)

$2K Tossup: ON THE MAP

N E _ / _ _ _ _ S H _ _ E

Anthony & Kevin locate NEW HAMPSHIRE.


Those guys lead off w/ three S’s for the ticketmaster gift tag, two E’s, a $1,400 T pair, four R’s for the WC, a $500 Y, but then the LaT. Over to the girls w/ a $500 G, three FP A’s, a $900 W, and three O’s before they try to solve this…

R O G _ E / O _ E :
A / S T A R / W A R S

“ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY” is correct, and everybody’s in a virtual three-way tie at $2K.

SOLE LaT: Boys


Crossword/Mystery Round: LOL

The girls open w/ a $600 S, a $1,600 pair of N’s, an E, a $600 T, an I, but then L for loss. Second, T&I BANKRUPT near TD. Third, the boys put up a $1,400 G pair, but the other normal BANKRUPT strikes and they also lose their WC. The girls resume their playing w/ two A’s, an $1,800 C pair, but then F for flunk. T&I then light up an R for the Vermont trip, a $3,500 D, the last vowel of three O’s, and a $550 M. Grid…

/  (G)  /    /    /   (_)
/  (G)  /    /    /   (_)
/    /  (C)(O)(M)(E)(D)(I)(A)(N)

…no JOKE about it — they’ve won $4,300 extra plus a pair of trips to the Smugglers’ Notch Ski Resort worth $15,510.

DUDS: L & F (both by the girls)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (other duos)

Boys: $2K/Girls: $2K/T&I: $20,810 cash & VT


PP/Express Round: PHRASE

All T&I here — they say a $1K R pair, five E’s, a $7K pair of T’s, and a $1,500 S trio.

_ T ‘ S
S _ _ _ E R T _ _ E
S _ _ E _ _ E R E

IT’S SUMMERTIME SOMEWHERE, so how about another $9,250 and these trips to The Bucccaneer in ST CROIX worth $17,800?


Boys: $2K/Girls: $2K/T&I: $47,860 cash & trips


$3K Tossup: FUN & GAMES

P H _ _ O B _ M B I N G

Tanya & Ian are PHOTOBOMBING to break the $50K mark!

Round 4: THINGS

Next from their mouths are a $1,200 R pair, two E’s, but then C for crud. The boys secondly find a $1K pair of S’s, but then B for bad. Third for the girls are $500 P and T singles, two O’s, a $650 M, and a $1,200 pair of D’s. We have…

P R O M / D R E S S
& / T _ _ E D O

…a PROM DRESS & TUXEDO good for $2,600 a new total of $4,600.

DUDS: C (T&I), B (boys)



$1,650’s the FS amount. After the frontloading G pops up…

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

…those girls solve GIRAFFES AND ZEBRAS for $6,600.

DUDS: L (boys), T (T&I)

Boys: $2K/Girls: $11,200/T&I: $50,860 cash & trips

GT: $64,060
BANKRUPT TRASH (excl. WC): $1,400


$100K Bonus Round
Whatever Tanya and Ian do, they must avoid the A in GAME…they actually land on the M in that same word.

Category: THING
I know this biggie already…

_ _ L _ _ _ L E

_ N _ _ R _ _ T _ _ N

They go w/ the CAMP strategy (MCPA)…

_ A L _ A _ L E
_ N _ _ R M A T _ _ N

Ian forgets the category and says VALUABLE INFORMANT, but Tanya comes through w/ some VALUABLE INFORMATION for the $34K and a final total of $84,860 cash & trips!

$5K SPIN ID: NT2098276
